Writer Ed Solomon tweeted a short interaction he had at a coffee shop where he was told not to comment on the movie he wrote. After some confusion and open conversation, things started to make sense.
Dan Milano, a senior producer at Now This News, created this hilarious Twitter thread of his brother building an artistic masterpiece of a Cybertruck at Thanksgiving dinner using mashed potatoes. And honestly we have to admit that we like it better than the real thing - at least this one you can eat. Sorry, Elon.
Kids are pretty dumb and easy to trick. Even if no one is trying to make them look dumb, they do a fantastic job of looking stupid all on their own. It's not exactly their fault, I mean, they're completely new here. They basically were in fact, born yesterday. So while kids are dumb and weird, they're sort of allowed to be that way.
In this wide world, we see a lot of hilarious translations and translation fails. Languages are complex and hard to understand completely. These frustratingly interesting observations on language and silly literal translations are a good example of that. This can come to a head when overzealous tourists try to get a tattoo in not only a language they don't understand, but in characters that are also completely foreign to them. Case in point, you don't want to misstep and end up as the "goldfish man"
Holy mother of entitled a-holes, y'all!
We don't like stereotyping people, but we all know the classic trope of the "bridezilla" who has to have everything her way and will stop at absolutely nothing to get it. To an extent, we sort of understand that behavior - planning a wedding is an incredibly stressful thing after all. However, this insane bride took the whole "entitled" thing waaay too far. It's really no surprise that she's on her third marriage!
Here we are in 2019 and pyramid schemes (AKA multi-level marketing companies) still exist. A pyramid scheme is a company that requires its "consultants" to purchase kits from the company in order to sell to family and friends, often on social media. Of course, majority of these consultants end up not making any sort of profit whatsoever. You'll recognize these people as the ones who call themselves "boss babes" and encourage you to message them about this "great opportunity."
In this particular story, someone calls out an Acti Labs consultant for being a part of a pyramid scheme, to which the consultant throws a bit of a fit.
People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.
When it comes to pickup lines, it helps to be creative, but the key thing is gonna be "does this person actually think I'm attractive?" Almost no one is gonna respond to some overused hack "did you fall from heaven" line so it helps to be in the moment. Here are lines that worked for men and women. And for some field tests, here are some tinder wins and fails that ended in heartbreak and puns.
As our society leans into social media, institutions such as police and fire departments are showing some skill in the way they embrace channels like Facebook and Twitter. The North Ridgeville Police Department in Texas has proved that they are quite skilled at using the former. Yesterday the Department's Facebook account posted a tale of their wholesome whirlwind of a quest to corral a renegade cow. It's detailed, it's funny, and most of all, it's sweet. - a very happy respite from the darker police stories we've seen lately. G
The human body is an amazing thing. It can heal itself, think really good, and it's one of the most persistent biological machines out there. Seriously, we run down our prey not with speed but with sheer willpower. That said, there are some definite design flaws in the human body that have caused a lot of us some major problems. The fact that one trip can send you to the hospital, or that choking is a thing. Anyway, here are some flaws people pointed out, as well as some possible improvements.
When you get down to it, a hotel is a box filled with people. People who have wants, needs, and get themselves locked out naked more than you'd expect. People who work in hotels walk in on weird things all the time, so naturally sometimes weird things would walk in on them.
Here are some stories of shattered bones, huge scars, emergency room visits and missed life events due to mundane moments of idiocy. All these folks did was misstep, exert themselves too hard, forget to stretch, forget about their surroundings and what have you. People injure themselves in some incredibly dumb ways. You'd be amazed at what a poorly timed sneeze can do to you.
I mean, sure, you could PROBABLY use two clothes irons to construct a sort of jury-rigged panini press, but before you enact your brilliant new plan, think to yourself if you actually have to ruin your irons. Chances are it won't be worth the sandwich, but it would be worth this list. In life you'll see many questionable fixes, and while they may seem awesome in theory, there's usually a reason to do things the right way.
