Escape Election Day Stress With Motherboard's Comfort Content

Welcome to a full day of things that don't suck.

The 2016 election has been a never-ending source of stress and chaos in the midst of an entirely bizarre year. Today is going to be no better, with the entire mediasphere hitting a fever pitch of anxiety that we've been waiting all year to crescendo. So as we all go out and vote, Motherboard is here for you. Instead of adding more election coverage to the thousands upon thousands of stories to be published shortly, we're dedicating the site to Comfort Content: Stories and memes and blogs that make us all feel cozy inside. Think of it as a bastion of chill standing strong in the face of the hell vortex consuming the rest of the internet today.


Since we always strive to bring you, dear reader, a more personal touch, we're also available to swap GIFs or YouTube vids or deep 311 cuts if you need us. All of our Twitter handles (and Comfort Content specialties) are listed below. Please don't hesitate to reach out, and we will try our best to have your back.

It's a big day for America, everyone. If you need anything, just let us know. And please, go vote!
