Most people are sexual beings, and we all get needs from time to time. And thanks for the internet and a little site called Backpage, hiring an escort is pretty easy. Now getting the actual person in the ad is always touch and go. You think you’re calling over a George Clooney looking dude and you end up with George Clooney if he was addicted to meth and ripped all his glorious hair out.
All of the politics of escorts aside (human trafficking is a disgusting business), if you’ve ever thought of hiring a prostitute to help you take care of your urges, you may want to hear these confessions from these people who’ve already enlisted the services of hired help.
Growing up is amazing. It’s a wonderful time in a person’s life when your mind is opening up and you’re making your transition from childhood to grown-up land. It’s intense, weird, and strangely beautiful.
And one of the best things about being a child is not having a filter — you feel compelled to say and do whatever you need to do in any situation. There’s an honesty in childhood that kind of gets lost on most people when they become adults.
But with that honesty comes a lot of brutal/hilarious situations.
Like this note a 5th grade teacher found one of her students, Zoe, wrote to a boy who likes her, Noah. And it’s a doozy.
Whenever you’re under the influence of alcohol or marijuana, the dumbest, most mundane things all of a sudden become magical. This is especially true of food. McDonald’s suddenly becomes palatable. Regular, broken up Lay’s Potato Chips become tiny pieces of rare filet mignon – everything just tastes so absolutely delicious.
The problem is, being under the influence clouts your judgment. And there’s probably plenty of meals you consumed while you were drunk or high that would absolutely horrify you if you were sober.
That’s what archaeologists just dug up when they were excavating a site on the Turkish-Syrian border. The mosaic dates back 2,400 years, but if the inscription on this picture of our laid-back, boney bro proves anything, it’s that human beings haven’t changed.
Because it translates to “Be cheerful, enjoy your life”. The artwork was discovered in what is believed to be the affluent Greek-Roman city of Antiocheia.
In the photo there’s two other figures, one, dark-skinned, and unfortunately eroded by time. The other, white and rocking a toga, reaching for a crescent.
Demet Kara, an archaeologist who helped discover the amazing mosaic, said in an interview with the Hurriyet Daily News said that the three figures represent what upper-echelon Roman peeps valued above all: bathing and eating.
“In the middle scene, there is a sundial and a young clothed man running towards it with a bare-headed butler behind. The sundial is between 9pm and 10pm – 9pm is the bath time in the Roman period. He has to arrive at supper at 10pm. Unless he can, it is not well received. There is writing on the scene that reads he is late for supper and writing about time on the other.
In the last scene, there is a reckless skeleton with a drinking pot in his hand along with bread and a wine pot. The writing on it reads ‘Be cheerful and live your life.'”
It turns out that long before we were using skeletons as memes, the ancient Romans were too – they thought skellies were hilarious.
All right, that seems a little more creepy than anything, but seriously, that sexy skeleton pose is kinda hilarious in a macabre way.
Kara says she’s still studying the site’s findings with her team but that they’ll be publishing their findings soon. Hopefully it’ll be an awesome collection of ancient party examples. Oh, and more skeleton memes. (h/t sciencealert)
With news of the four Paralympic athletes that outpaced the Rio Olympics’ 1500m winner making waves, people replayed the race online and noticed something strange on the podium; after receiving their medals, the athletes would all shake them a few times.
The reason is an incredibly thoughtful one. While medals at the Paralympics always had braille on them, this year all 2,642 medals come with a new feature; they rattle when shaken.
Each medal was designed with a metal ring inside, and a varying number of magnetic spheres within the ring itself. The gold, silver, and bronze medals each have a unique sound by design.
In the gold medal, the loudest of the three, there are 28 of those magnetically charged spheres inside. The silver medal comes with 20 spheres sealed within it for a rattle that isn’t as loud as the gold medal’s, and the bronze is the quietest of the three thanks to its 16 magnetically charged spheres inside.
Each medal also features a pebble design going across the front symbolizing seeds that represent the courage, persistence, and development of the athletes. The 2016 Paralympics will end on Sunday, September 18th. Now when you see podium medals smile after giving their medals a little shake, you’ll know why, and it’ll make the scene that much more awesome.
Some people have more money than sense. Just look at the people willing to pay Apple $ 159 for their new wireless headphones that will go missing within 10 minutes of use.
If you’ve ever bought anything from Gucci, you know just how expensive they are too. And now, they’re trying to get people to pay $ 1,800 for these slippers than can only be compared to Donald Trump’s hair.
The worst thing? They’re actually sold out.
The Net-A-Porter describes these monstrosities as “one of the most talked-about designs from Alessandro Michele’s debut runway collection.” And suggests that you “wear them with floaty skirts and dresses, or keep it casual in jeans.”
Users on social media had a different interpretation, making the obvious comparisons.
Welcome. If you’re reading this right now, then you’ve also spent hours upon hours on YouTube looking at everything from cyst and blackhead extractions to human bot fly and tapeworm removals. And you like it. I’m glad that’s the case.
You see, this video is pretty special. I’ve seen plenty of cyst extractions that have emptied out a peanut butter jar’s worth of hard pus and keratin from a person’s back. I’ve also seen people coat their mirrors in a layer of greasy discharge from a neck, jaw, or forehead pimple. It was always pretty neat to watch.
This one however, is a game changer. Suddenly, the violator is in a person’s mouth. He can feel it. He can taste it. Brandon wrote on Reddit that his tongue was in pain for a few days, and after finding the lump and seeing pus/mucus ooze out, he went to the dentist who ultimately told him that his salivary gland had a blockage and a salivary stone was forming.
When it was ripe for the picking, he did us a favor and recorded the removal for us to see. He pushes his tongue to the roof of his mouth and exerts some pressure. This is the result:
Steve Harvey and Family Feud were a match made in heaven. His reactions were so great that people began uploading them to the net before Family Feud decided to start uploading clips themselves and prompted those that have never bothered with the show to scroll through footage for hours at a time.
His reactions to the over the top answers some contestants give him are really what everyone looks forward to. With each new episode that airs, you can see his faith in mankind diminish more and more, along with his will to continue hosting the show.
On a recent episode that aired, something interesting happened; one of the contestants shared an uncanny resemblance to the host, all the way down to his signature mustache and inquiring facial expression.
The guest insisted that he should be compensated to some degree for constantly being mistaken for Steve Harvey, who countered by pointing out one very important difference between the two. Take a look:
