No Bake Sugar Cookie Bites are a Quick and Delicious Bite-Sized Dessert

Print Recipe

I love no-bake desserts – they’re always so quick and easy to make. These No Bake Sugar Cookie Bites are so yummy and basically foolproof. They come together in only 15 minutes, are super simple to make, and are absolutely delicious.

You can use either homemade or store-bought sugar cookies to make these little bites. Since no two sugar cookie recipes are the same, just make sure to add enough cream cheese so that the balls have the consistency of thick dough. Also, if you’re not fond of sprinkles, you can switch them out for chopped nuts, coconut or chocolate. Enjoy!

  • 1 package sugar cookies (about 12 in total). You can also use homemade if store bought is not available.
  • 2-4 tbsp full-fat cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • funfetti sprinkles (or chopped nuts, coconut, chocolate, etc.)
  1. In a food processor or blender, add in 6 cookies at a time and pulse until they become crumbs. Transfer cookie crumbs to a bowl and pulse the last 6 cookies to crumbs.
  2. Add in the room temperature cream cheese. The amount of cream cheese you need can vary depending on your cookie (you want the crumbs to be the consistency of thick dough).
  3. Once a thick dough forms, roll the dough into even sized balls.
  4. Place in the fridge while preparing the chocolate.
  5. Separate the chocolate into two parts (3/4 cup + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil) and melt in the microwave in bursts of 20 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds.
  6. Once the chocolate is completely melted, dip the truffles into the chocolate and then set them on the prepared tray.
  7. Immediately sprinkle with funfetti sprinkles (or your choice of topping).
  8. Allow to harden at room temperature.
  9. Melt the remaining chocolate and vegetable oil and dip the rest of the truffles (I separate the chocolate so it doesn’t harden in between dipping and keeps the dipping easier!)
  10. They should keep for up to 3 days stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

A Stray Cat Became The Bionic Kitty After An Accident

Medicine has allowed people to live long and healthy lives, but more importantly it’s done the same for our pets. Pooh, a stray cat from Bulgaria (where his name means “Fluff”) got a new lease on life after losing both his back legs in an accident.

There’s no way to know what happened to Fluff, but vets at an animal hospital in Sofia think he was hit by either a car or a train. While most cats who lose their back legs get a pair of wheels to pull around, or simply learn to live with their front two, Pooh was chosen for an experimental solution: bionic legs!

Pooh’s new back legs are made of titanium, with soft shoes for “paws” at the bottom. It took weeks for Pooh to be able to walk again, because his body had to actually regrow over his new metal legs, but he’s back to normal now.

Vets say he even tries to lick his metal legs to clean them, just like his regular ones.

Pooh isn’t the first cat to get this futuristic upgrade. In 2010 a British vet gave a cat named Oscar his own robo-paws in a surgery that cost £50,000.

This surgery will get cheaper soon, but there’s already a waiting list for the same procedure that Pooh went through. There’s no word on how much it costs, but for now we’re happy to call Pooh the Six Billion Dollar Cat!

Hollywood Is Making A Movie About Lucille Ball – But Fans Are Upset By The Casting Choices

A new movie about the life of one of America’s favorite TV stars is in the works – and it already has her fans divided.

The project, called Lucy and Desi, will focus on Lucille Ball’s 20-year marriage to her husband and co-star Desi Arnaz. Lucy and Desi eloped less than a year after meeting, and their relationship took center stage in all of their projects, including I Love Lucy. Ball’s pregnancy with her son Desi Jr. was written into the show, at a time when CBS didn’t even want the word “pregnancy” to be spoken on TV.

Ball’s classic sitcoms earned her 13 Emmy nominations, and the star won 4 times. Along with making her own shows, her television company Desilu Productions helped create other hit series like Star Trek and Mission: Impossible.

The star also attracted her fair share of controversy, and was even investigated by the FBI. The agency thought Lucy had ties to the Communist Party, but as her husband joked “The only thing red about Lucy is her hair.”

There’s no telling which parts of Lucy’s life will be featured in the new movie, and with a life as exciting as hers something astounding is bound to be left out. But the first details about the new film – including who will play Lucy – are drawing criticism from her biggest fans.

Find out who will play Lucy and Desi on the next page!

It’s hard to imagine that any actress can capture the spirit of Lucille Ball, and that’s what has her fans around the world so worried.

Early casting news about who will play Lucy and Desi in the film, which is being produced by Amazon, has fans who grew up watching I Love Lucy convinced this project is doomed before it even begins.

The film, which is made with the blessing of Lucy and Desi’s children Lucie and Desi Jr., is written by Aaron Sorkin, who also wrote A Few Good Men and Moneyball.

Cate Blanchett, the blonde actress who starred in films like The Aviator and The Lord of the Rings, is in talks to play the redhead comedian.

That news is enough to spoil the project for some fans, who say she doesn’t look a thing like Lucy. “Sorry. No one can play Lucy but Lucille Ball herself,” one fan commented. “Many have tried. All have failed.”

Producers are also looking to cast Lucy’s husband Desi, as well as Vivian Vance and William Frawley, who played the couple’s neighbors the Mertzes.

While there’s no official casting news, Spanish actor Javier Bardem has been rumored as the top choice to play Desi.

Experts Say You Might Beat Your Facebook Addiction By Having LSD For Breakfast

One addiction can cure another! Or at least that’s what Baynard Woods, a researcher working under psychedelics expert Dr. James Fadiman, claims. In case you didn’t know, Fadiman worked extensively with LSD until it was banned in 1966. The researcher claims he “microdosed” on the drug in the early morning, and it helped him control his compulsive social media and internet habits.

“The most remarkable effect of the microdose, which I noticed on the first day, was that it broke – or significantly disrupted – my addiction to the internet,” Baynard wrote. “Like many people, I often find myself scrolling aimlessly through Facebook when I tell myself I’m too tired for anything else. But that day, I stayed away from it almost completely.”

Baynard goes on to explain that he spent most of the day in the great outdoors, riding the bus and chatting with strangers. He said he “often ended up in actual conversations rather than virtual ones.”

Rebloggy Tumblr

Apparently, taking LSD for breakfast has become the norm for some people. The idea is you have a small amount – just 10-15 micrograms – and get on with your day. Dr Fadiman said: “People do it and they’re eating better, sleeping better, they’re often returning to exercise or yoga or meditation. It’s as if messages are passing through their body more easily.” I bet they do.

Metro UK

Although a small amount of acid doesn’t cause drug trips, it’s been linked to alarming conditions such as panic attacks, psychosis, and terrifying visions.

We want to hear from you. Do you thinking taking LSD for breakfast is a good idea?

It Ain’t No Lie, *NSYNC Is Making A Comeback

Get ready to freak out like a 13 year old girl, because one of everyone’s favorite boy bands is coming back to release something very special to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Which band? *NSYNC!

That’s right! Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez are in the process of planning a little reunion in honor of the 20 magical years of *NSYNC.

Are you still with us, are you busy lip-syncing to “Tearing Up My Heart” into your hairbrush?

Well, Lance Bass was just on Entertainment Tonight and he revealed that the band’s plans to celebrate their anniversary.

“We’re coming out with a really cool vinyl edition of our Christmas album because it’s coming up on the 20 years of that [1998 ‘Home for Christmas’] album. And then we’re going to be getting our star on the Walk of Fame this year at some point.”

I wonder if they will be wearing wonderful matching outfits while the ceremony happens. He elaborated that the date hasn’t been set yet because “we’re terrible at planning things… We’re five guys, so for us to make a decision about anything is really hard, so we just need to do it. So hopefully maybe around Christmas time. It’ll be fun to see everybody again.”

I know what I want for Christmas!

Are you excited about the reunion?

This Couple Is Having A Spam-Themed Wedding

Mark Benson loves Spam. I mean, he REALLY loves Spam.

He’s such a big fan of the canned meat, that, in 2015, he legally changed his name to Mark “I Love SPAM” Benson.

In 2016, his fiancee, Anne Mousley, asked the Spam brand if they would consider hosting their wedding at the new Spam museum in Austin, Minnesota.

The happy couple will be married on April 25 and guests will get to eat plenty of Spam-inspired dishes, probably Spam sandwiches.

After the wedding, Spam has offered to send the couple to Hawaii, self-proclaimed Spam capital of the world, where they can experience the Spam Jam Festival in all its glory.

To each their own – Congratulations to Mark “I Love SPAM” and his future wife, Anne Mousley!

Fans Are Concerned For Sinead O’Connor After The Singer Reveals She’s Suicidal In Disturbing Video

Sinead O’Connor was one of the biggest names in pop music in the ’80s and ’90s, but recently she’s made headlines for struggling with mental illness and drug abuse.

O’Connor, from the music video for “Nothing Compares 2 U”Live Internet

The singer’s early life wasn’t as glamorous as you might expect. Growing up in Ireland, she and her siblings were physically abused by their parents, and she was sent to an asylum at age 15 after being caught shoplifting.

To make things even worse, O’Connor’s mother died in a car crash in 1985, just before her debut album The Lion and the Cobra made her an international celebrity. But since the peak of her career, when her cover of Prince‘s song “Nothing Compares 2 U” became a worldwide hit, the singer has led a troubled life.

Along with an addiction to prescription drugs, O’Connor has lived with bipolar disorder, PTSD and suicidal thoughts from an early age. She revealed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that she attempted suicide in 1999, on her 33rd birthday.

After drawing headlines for entering rehab, seeking treatment for her mental health and losing custody of her teenage son Shane, a video released by this singer this week has her fans more concerned than ever.

Find out what O’Connor said on the next page…

In a 12 minute video posted on Facebook, the pop singer bared her soul and shared a tragic glimpse at her life today.

O’Connor revealed that she’s living in a Travelodge hotel in New Jersey (she doesn’t say exactly where) and says she’s been “wandering the world for two years by myself” since losing custody of her son Shane. O’Connor sold her home in Ireland 2 years ago to pay a tax bill and hasn’t returned to the country since then.

O’Connor, who has been married 4 times, lost custody of her son after revealing her suicidal thoughts, and threatened Ireland’s Child and Family Agency they would have “a dead celebrity on their hands” if he was taken away from her.

While the singer says she’s been suicidal for the past 2 years and claims she has “nobody” in her life, she also shares a hopeful message with other people facing the same daily struggle against mental illness as her.

“I hope that this video is somehow helpful,” she said. “I know that I’m just one of millions and millions of people in the world that suffer like I do that don’t necessarily have the resources that I have.”

“I want everyone to know what it’s like,” she explains, “that’s why I’m making this video.”

Fans shared supportive messages with O’Connor and urged local authorities to reach out to her, and a post on the singer’s Facebook page says she’s safe and “surrounded by love.”

If you or someone you know is considering suicide you can get help around the clock by calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK).

People Have Noticed Something Off About This Photo Of Melania

Melania Trump has learned the hard way that the internet will dissect anything that you post if you are a person of interest. When she visited the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History on February 15th, people became fascinated with the photo she shared.

The photo shows her engaging in an exhibit, but in the background there is a man who has quickly become the real focus. Standing just behind Melania there is a man who appears to be giving her an exaggerated eye roll that was captured at just the right moment.

The picture has opened up discussions criticizing the President’s relationship with the black community. His speech for Black History Month sparked some issues because he made some very important mistakes about Frederick Douglass and before that made controversial comments about Civil Rights icon John Lewis.

Twitter users have quickly turned this photo into a meme.

It’s likely the man is a Secret Service agent because another photo shows that he is wearing an earpiece. He also could just be looking around the room, checking for threats.

People are upset that Melania was present while the President postponed his visit due to scheduling issues.

What do you think? Was he rolling his eyes at the First Lady or just looking around?

David Letterman Is Returning To TV

Fans of David Letterman can rejoice once again.

Letterman had an illustrious career on the late-night television circuit. In 1982, Late Night with David Letterman premiered on NBC. The show was somewhat of a fluke. Two years prior, he had been given a morning comedy show with NBC but the ratings were so low it was cancelled. The network wanted to keep Letterman under contract, so they offered him a night slot instead.

In 1992, Letterman would move to CBS network after being snubbed by NBC. Johnny Carson had just retired, and many assumed it would be Letterman taking over The Tonight Show. Instead, NBC gave the show to Jay Leno which prompted Letterman to move to their rival network and host Late Show with David Letterman.

Letterman remained a late-night legend until 2015 when he made the decision to retire. Fans of Letterman were left stunned as new host Seth Meyers was set to take over the show. Though Meyers does a great job, nothing could replace Letterman’s charisma and experience.

But as with most things these days, Letterman will be getting a reboot that will see him on screens once again.

Continue reading to find out more details about his new show!

Letterman will be hosting a six-episode series on Netflix, featuring in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor.”

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix,” Letterman said in a statement. “Here’s what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely.”

“Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can’t wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We’ll have to see if he keeps the beard.”

The show is set to premiere on Netflix in 2018.

With 33 years and 6,028 episodes of television under his belt, there’s no denying this series will be one to watch! Will you tune in? Let us know.

These New Dog Breeds Are Competing For A Big Prize

Americans aren’t very familiar with the Pumi, a tiny herding dog from Hungary, but they’re about to fall in love with this fuzzy little pooch when it competes in the Westminster Dog Show this year.

More than 2,800 dogs from 190 breeds will be competing at the annual event to crown America’s top pooches. Every year, new breeds that are becoming more popular are added to the competition.

It takes a lot of work from owners – including keeping detailed records about your dog’s family tree – to get a new breed into the competition, but this year there are 3 new types of pups competing.

Pumi

These small, fuzzy dogs with floppy rabbit ears are well known in Hungary but dog owners in America are only just realizing how adorable they are. One of the pumi making their debut this year is a favorite to win the show’s big prize, so scoop up one of these little fuzzballs now before they get really popular.

American Hairless Terrier

Once, a rat terrier gave birth to a puppy with no hair. The dog’s breeder through this was so cute that they kept breeding hairless terriers, and now we have this breed. They actually need to have their skin moisturized, and they wear suntan lotion when they go outside. It’s not everyone’s idea of “cute,” but this is definitely a unique dog.

Sloughi

These hunting dogs have a LONG history. They’re originally from northern Africa, and ancient egyptian paintings show dogs very similar to these ones from as far back as 3,000 BC. Sloughis (say it like “sloo-gee”) were used as hunting dogs, and racers. In fact, they’re sometimes called “Arabian greyhounds.”

Which of these new breeds is your favorite? Share this post and let us know!

A Company Is Selling Dirty Water Bottles To Make A Point

It can be hard to remember in a country where fresh, safe tap water flows in everyone’s home, but clean water is very precious almost everywhere else on this planet.

More than 663 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water, and every day over 800 children die from drinking contaminated water.

To remind people how lucky they are, and to raise money for clean water in developing countries,  water bottle company One Water will be selling a limited number of bottles with special sleeves that make the water look “dirty.”

One Water

The bottles, which were unveiled on World Water Day, will be on sale soon.

Duncan Goose, the company’s founder, realizes that customers may not want to buy “dirty” water, but he says it’s important to raise awareness.

“I wanted to turn this into a force for good,” he said in a statement, “a source of funds that benefits the billions of people worldwide who don’t have a reliable clean source of water.”

To make sure everyone has access to clean water like their customers, One Water uses their profits to fund charities in the developing world, including their own One Foundation.

Grossing people out with dirty water may not solve the world’s problems, but it’s definitely creative.

Last year, Americans drank 12.8 billion gallons of bottled water, which works out to 30.8 gallons per person. If everyone thought about that water differently, it could make a huge difference in the world.

What do you think of these gross bottles? Are they a good idea?

The $6 Gadget That Every Kitchen Should Have

Regardless of your level of expertise, cooking without the right tools can make your time in the kitchen less pleasant.

There’s a lot of work that goes into creating a tasty dish and sometimes it takes more than the basic tools and guesswork to get the desired results.

Surprisingly one of the hardest thing to cook right are boiled eggs. Believe it or not, you can actually screw up hard-boiled eggs.

The green around the yolk and the rubbery texture of the white are indications of  “bad” boiled eggs. This doesn’t make them inedible but they won’t taste as good as they could be.

The solution? An egg timer!

A genius invented a timer that uses heat technology to ensure perfect boiled eggs everytime.

Click on the next page to see how the timer works and where you can purchase it for a steal!

The handy gadget reacts to heat just like an egg would and darkens to indicate the cooking stages from soft to hard. All you have to do is toss it in the pot at the start of the boiling process and watch it change colors.

The timer also automatically adjusts to the number of eggs and amount of water so you’ll never have to worry about measuring.

You can snag this amazing little gadget right now on Amazon for just $5.91. Seriously, you will not regret it.

Sesame Street Adds Another New Character To Address A Common Family Theme

Sesame Street has been a staple in many households for almost 50 years, teaching young kids not only educational lessons, but also lessons surrounding every day life.

The PBS show made headlines this past year when they conducted a study asking parents if they’d rather their kids be polite or empathetic. Most parents wished their kids would be polite, which researchers believed was the reason for the growing lack of empathy in college-age kids.

Sesame Street also stirred up emotion when they introduced Julia, a muppet with autism.

“Bringing Julia to life as a Sesame Street Muppet is the centerpiece of all of our new materials to support families of children with autism,” said Sherrie Westin, EVP of Global Impact and Philanthropy, Sesame Workshop in a press release.

Now, in an effort to keep up with changing family trends, Sesame Street is introducing another new muppet to help kids identify what’s happening in their lives.

Continue reading to find out who is being added to the cast!

The iconic kids show will be adding Rudy, a 3-year-old orange monster, to the crew.

Rudy is Abby Cadabby’s step-brother. Although they are different (Abby is a fairy), the two accept each other with open arms.

Rudy is there to help children understand “stories about siblings, blended families, and conflict resolution,” Sesame Street released in a statement.

“Families come in many forms — including newly-blended families, which can present unique challenges for kids. As part of Sesame Street‘s kindness curriculum, kids will watch as Abby and Rudy meet for the first time, get to know each other, and overcome their differences to embrace their new sibling relationship,” Sesame continues in the press release.

Rudy and Abby “love each other very much” despite not being blood siblings, according to an interview with the new characters.

“Rudy is a monster and Elmo is a monster and we all get along, we are best friends,” says Abby.

Adds Elmo: “Elmo thinks they’re both really cool! They’re so nice to each other, Elmo doesn’t have brothers or sisters, but he feels like he does with Abby and Rudy.”

“We’re thrilled to introduce a new neighbor on Sesame Street — Abby Cadabby’s stepbrother Rudy!” Brown Johnson, EVP and Creative Director, Sesame Workshop, says. “The addition of Rudy to the family gives us a wonderful opportunity to explore sibling relationships — the good and the challenging, as well as the idea that kids can come from blended families. Rudy is cute and funny, and loves a little mischief — especially when he borrows his step-sister’s wand!”

Do you think this new character is a good idea? Let us know!

Man Crashed His Car On Purpose To Save A Stranger’s Life

When Manfred Kick was driving his Tesla Model S down the Autobahn near Munich, Germany, he noticed something was terribly wrong with another driver on the highway. He saw the Volkswagen swerving erratically all over the busy road and realized that the drive was unconscious.

He pulled out in front of the car and slowly put on his brakes which caught the car on his own and forced it to stop. He jumped out of his car and into that of the other driver and administered first aid until the emergency services arrived.

The man had suffered a stroke but Kick’s quick thinking saved his life. The problem for him was that now his car had about 10, 000 euros worth of damage on the expensive car that he would need to pay for.

Lucky for him, the owner of the Telsa company Elon Musk heard about the brave and selfless act and offered to repair Kick’s Telsa free of charge!

Do you think you would be brave enough to risk your own life to save another?

Rolling Stone Band Member Prepared to Say Goodbye to His Family After Diagnosis

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood has revealed how he prepared to say goodbye to his young family after he received his lung cancer diagnosis earlier this year.

The 70-year-old rocker shared how he kept his disease a secret and how it led to the darkest period of his life.

He also faced the diagnosing decision on whether to go ahead with chemotherapy to treat his illness.

“I’ve had a fight with a touch of lung cancer. There was a week when everything hung in the balance and it could have been curtains, time to say goodbye,” said the father of 6.

Ronnie Wood made the decision to quit smoking a week before his one-year-old twins Gracie and Alice were born.

His diagnosis came 3 months ago during a routine medical appointment with Richard Dawood, the band’s doctor.

That’s when Dawood asked to check the star’s heart, lungs and blood.

“I said go for it,” recalled Wood. “And then he came back with the news that I had this supernova burning away on my left lung. And to be totally honest, I wasn’t surprised.”

He knew that he hadn’t had a chest X-ray since he was at Cottonwood, a rehab clinic in Tucson, AZ in 2002.

The star’s third wife, Sally, who is 31 years younger than him, stood by his side during the tests to see if his condition had spread beyond his lungs.

“If that had happened, it would have been all over for me. So there was this one week when I didn’t know what was happening,” Wood said. “Sally was amazing. It’s only since we’ve got through it that she has been able to tell me how it was the worst seven days of her life.”

No matter what happened, the star was adamant not to undergo chemotherapy.

Continue to the next page to find out why and the status of his condition.

The guitarist who joined the Rolling Stones more than 40 years ago, admits that considering everything he has been through, he has been very lucky. As one of the most notorious hell-raisers in rock history, Wood enjoyed a “love affair” with drugs and alcohol spanning decades.

“I had this thought after I gave up smoking, ‘How can I get through 50 years of chain-smoking, and all the rest of my bad habits, without something going on in there?’ ’Someone up there must like me,” he said.

Known for his iconic hair, the aging musician didn’t want to loose the look that people recognize him for.

“I was prepared for bad news but I also had faith it would be OK. Apart from the doctors, we didn’t tell anyone because we didn’t want to put anyone else through the hell we were going through,” he said. “But I made up my mind that if it had spread, I wasn’t going to go through chemo, I wasn’t going to use that bayonet in my body.”

“It’s more I wasn’t going to lose my hair. This hair wasn’t going anywhere,” he concluded.

A week later the doctors came back with the news that the cancer hadn’t spread. It was time to have the surgery to remove the mass and begin his fight.

The rocker is now said to be fine, and will be getting check-ups every 3 months to make sure he stays that way!

The Rolling Stones are going on tour in September with 14 gigs lined up across Europe.

This health scare served as a warning to Wood, “People have to get checked. Seriously have to get checked. I was bloody lucky but then I’ve always had a very strong guardian angel looking out for me. By rights I shouldn’t be here.”

What’s The Big Fuss About This $55 Water Bottle?

Do you get most of your water intake from coffee? The problem that most of us run into is reminding ourselves to drink the recommended eight glasses of water per day. It’s easier to grab a coffee and be done with it. So if you have a reusable water bottle you never use, you’re not alone.

But what if you could have a water bottle that tells you when you need hydrate? People like you are tired of falling short of their goals, and they’re paying $55 to make it all go away.

A Kickstarter project called Hidrate Spark turned into a successful business when they started selling out of their smart water bottles. Their product uses specialized technology to track how much you drink and when you need more. It even has an app so you can connect it to your smartphone!

Cool Mom Tech

“Hidrate Spark 2.0 tracks your water intake, connects via Bluetooth to hydration app, syncs with Fitbit, Apple Watch & more, and glows to remind you to stay hydrated,” their website says.

Hidrate Spark

So how exactly does it work? The bottle has a screw-on cap and high-tech “measuring stick” inside that senses each time you take a sip. 10 seconds after placing the bottle down, it calculates your intake and syncs with the Hidrate Spark app on your phone.

If you’re overdue for a guzzle, the app with notify you. At that point, if you don’t take a drink, the water bottle will start to light up as a double reminder. So, not only is the water bottle amazing at encouraging you to drink more water, but it looks super cool. Who wouldn’t want to bring a glowing water bottle to the gym?

Hidrate Spark on Twitter

The Hidrate Spark 2.0 is available in six colors, including white, green, teal, pink, purple, and black, and you can buy it here for $54.95. It looks like the green shade is the most popular, because it’s already out of stock!
