Today in #tips, 15-year-olds trek to the North Pole for Foursquare cred, your Kraken-cat has been released, a Sharia-safe sex store sets up shop, and Lindsay Lohan has an ironic tattoo but no sense of irony.

i ♥ lung regales with the tale of 15-year-old child-of-billionaires Parker Liautaud, who's out to one-up your lame Mayor of Alcoholicsville Foursquare badge by being the first to check in from the North Pole.
