Back off, social media: Blue-eyed convict Jeremy Meeks is off the market

The wife of handsome felon Jeremy Meeks is reportedly fed up by the internet’s continuing obsession with his mugshot, according to a friend.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t see her at all in the cameras, because she’s upset,” said friend Simone Johnson for CBS Sacramento. “She’s furious. Her man is in there and people are taking it as a joke, thinking it’s funny talking about his looks, saying all kinds of crazy things.”

Meeks was charged with gang membership, firearm possession and a probation violation, reports CBS. He has already spent two years in prison for grand theft in 2002.

Despite his stunning good looks, Meeks’ bail was raised to $1 million, says CBS. His arraignment continues June 27th.

An American Got Stuck in a Stone Vagina Sculpture in Germany

No word yet on whether he was trying to take a selfie

An American exchange student got stuck inside a stone sculpture of a vagina last week in Germany.

It took more than 20 emergency responders Friday to free the young man, according to reports in the German newspaper Süddeutsche and The Guardian. He had wedged himself inside Pi Chacan, a 2001 stone sculpture by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara, in front of Tübingen University’s Institute for Microbiology and Virology. The police in Tübingen first learned of the incident when they received a call reporting that “a person is stuck in a stone vulva.”

The city’s mayor Boris Palmer said he could not understand how the student got himself in that situation in the first place, “even taking into account adolescent fantasy,” Süddeutsche reports.

No word on whether the student was trying to take a selfie.

WATCH: Brad Pitt Might Be Your (Distant) Cousin

According to author A.J. Jacobs, you might be related to many of the beautiful faces you see on the big screen

Wouldn’t it be nice to see Brad Pitt at your next family reunion? According to author A.J. Jacobs, you might be related to many of the beautiful faces you see on the big screen. That is, very distantly related.

Jacobs says we all have famous and historical people in our family trees because we’re all connected through blood or marriage. In several years, according to Jacobs, we could have a family tree that connects all 7 billion on earth, which he calls an “unprecedented history of the human race.”

This Chart Tells You if You’re Being Underpaid

Shoulda been a doctor

If you ever wondered why your parents really wanted you to be a doctor, this chart serves as a good explanation.

Redditor Dan Lin took data from the Bureau of Labor to create a color coded, (very) long chart that breaks down how much different industries pay. Health care-related professions (displayed in a subtle fuchsia) dominate the top of the list.

The chart also provides interesting information on whether you’re being underpaid in your field–you know, just in case you needed some fodder for leaning in to your boss this week. Click to enlarge for a closer look:

Every Dad’s Favorite ’90s Band Covers ‘Let It Go’ From Frozen

Say hello to your new Snow Queen, Eddie Vedder

Back in February, TIME offered a definitive ranking of the best “Let It Go” covers. Now, four months later, we’re still seeing new covers popping up left and right, including one by Pearl Jam. Yes, really. During an extended arrangement of their song “Daughter” at a concert in Milan this weekend, the band transitioned to the Frozen hit.

We have to admit: it’s pretty cool hearing Eddie Vedder’s voice belting out that catchy chorus. Now we’re kind of hoping a rapper tackles it next. We’re lookin’ at you, Weezy.
