Woman With 20 Boyfriends Buys A House After She Sold All The iPhone 7s They Bought For Her

You might think you’ve got hustle, but there’s no one who has more hustle than this Chinese woman who used her boy-mongering powers for the ultimate con: buying herself a house.

A blogger wrote about her anonymous friend who, for the purposes of her post she called Xiaoli, had 20 different men wrapped around her finger. She pestered each of the men to get her the pricey gift of a brand spanking new iPhone 7.

And then sold them all to buy a house in China, which is currently a tough buyer’s market.

“[Xiaoli] is not from a wealthy family. Her mum is a housewife and her dad is a migrant worker, and she is the oldest daughter. Her parents are getting old and she might be under a lot pressure hoping to buy them a house… But it’s still unbelievable that she could use this method!”

The story went viral on the popular Chinese site Weibo, where the “20 mobiles for a house” hashtag is trending. The blogger was amazed that Xiaoli has so many boyfriends.

“I can’t even find one boyfriend. She can actually find 20 boyfriends at the same time and even get them to buy her an iPhone 7. Just want to ask her to teach me such skills.”

People on the site are actually praising Xiaoli for her resourcefulness in such a tough economic marketplace. 

Other people are calling her “shameful” for leading the men on and using their generosity for her own financial gain.

But she’s got herself her own house. And 20 dudes who each bought her an iPhone 7. So haters can hate all they want. (h/t complex)

30 Couples Costumes That Won’t Make Everyone Else Roll Their Eyes

Can you think of any holiday more romantic than Halloween?

Valentine’s day, sure. 

But can you think of an other holiday where you and your significant other get to stay up late and get drunk? Okay, yeah. New Year’s Eve. Good point.

Well, what about a holiday where everyone just eats and eats and eats? I guess that sounds more like Thanksgiving now that I am thinking about it.

Well, here is something that only Halloween has going for it. Costumes. No other holiday has that. Unless you count those ugly Christmas Sweaters, or overly patriotic clothing for Fourth of July, or… Nevermind. 

Just trust me. Halloween is unique and these costumes are somehow bearable considering they’re coordinated. 

  1. This scandal

  18. Hey, I’m not your friend, buddy!

  19. Deep cut.

25 People Share Their Life-Changing Advice

My mom says this changed her life, and I to this day can’t believe the words came out of my mouth.

When I was 7, my great aunt and uncle who my mom was super close with her entire life were brutally murdered in an attempted robbery of their home. The murderer was the son of their neighbor – he had broken into the wrong home and freaked out and killed them in a panic.

She was devastated, obviously. I remember she wouldn’t tuck us in or eat dinner with us for months. She became a shell of the person she was before. Just wasn’t my mom anymore.

So one day, in my 2nd grade class, we were for some god given reason learning about coping skills and depression.

I didn’t know the specifics of what had happened at the age of 7 obviously, but apparently that day when my mom got home from work, I asked her if I could walk her out to the end of the driveway before she went on her run (REALLY long driveway). She of course agreed, and during this 5 minute walk to the end of the driveway the conversation went something like this:

Me: “Mom. You’ve been sad lately.”

Mom: “Yeah, I have honey. Mommy is just going through a lot of stuff right now.”

Me: “Because of Aunt xxx and Uncle yyy?”

Mom: “Yes.”

-silence until we get to the end of the driveway-

Me: “Have you heard of coping skills?”

Mom: “Coping skills? Where did you hear that?”

Me: “We learned about coping skills in class today. When bad stuff happens people get sad. Sometimes they need help using their coping skills to feel better. I think you need coping skills.”

My mom basically broke down crying and laughing because how is this 7 year old saying this to me and hugged me. She assured me she would and told me to go back inside.

She admitted to me when I was much older that she didn’t know what would’ve happened to her if I hadn’t asked her to go get help. It’s honestly crazy to me because I have very little memory of the event beyond her story. I remember her being sad, and I remember her getting better, but I don’t remember being the reason for it.

This Dog Had No Chill Upon Seeing Her Favorite Toy Come To Life

Perhaps the thing that makes dogs so goddamn pure is the fact that they’re so easy to please. Some love, walks, treats, and belly rubs are all they require for a completely blissful existence (is your heart hurting already?). 

So, when you go above and beyond for your dog, their excitement goes THROUGH THE ROOF, and it’s a wonderful thing to witness. One such moment is circulating all over the Internet and one pup is getting her moment of viral fame. 

Meet Jolene, a lovable (and newly Instafamous) Golden Retriever living in Modesto, California. 

She likes dressing up. 

And she loves her toys. 

But nothing could prepare Jolene for the excitement she felt upon seeing a life-sized version of her favorite Gumby toy. 

At first, Jolene isn’t sure what to make of the whole situation, but once she recognizes the smell of her human inside the Gumby suit, she absolutely NO CHILL. So, of course, she tackles Gumby to ground for lots of hugs and wrestles. 

Jolene’s mom Emily Crisp originally shared the video to Facebook on Thursday night — and it’s been viewed nearly 5 million times since. 

pup

The video has also been posted to Facebook and Twitter, where people can’t get enough of Jolene’s sheer happiness. 

…How can you not watch this video over and over again? If only we could all make our dogs this happy with Halloween costumes.

We hope Jolene had the best cuddle session of all time with her two Gumbies.

Chrissy Teigen Dressed Up Baby Luna For Halloween And We Can't Handle All The Cute

Chrissy Teigen, Reigning Queen of Twitter, Celebrity Crush of Many, is a multi-talented woman. She’s a successful model, businesswoman, cookbook author, and unrivaled amateur Twitter comedian. 

Her newest talent? Finding the best baby Halloween costumes. 

Since the birth of her daughter Luna, Teigen has dedicated much of her time to being a doting mother. 

And she won’t stand for Twitter heat from mommy-shamers trying to pick apart her every move, either. Her online fire isn’t reserved for fighting Piers Morgan and Donald Trump — she’s taken down her fair share of parenting critics. 

If Instagram is any indication, she especially enjoys dressing up her new kiddo in adorable outfits. 

This is the point of parenthood, right?

So, it’s no surprise that she went all out for Luna’s for Halloween — and she shared some of the potential costumes on Instagram. 

Sure, Luna’s facial expression is reminiscent of something you’d see in a hostage video, but she’s the cutest lil’ hot dog we’ve ever seen. We wholeheartedly approve. 

Since Teigen is A GOOD MOTHER, there were many more costumes to choose from. 

While the peacock headdress and webbed feet booties are probably very confusing to an infant, we couldn’t love them more. 

It became clear that the Halloween shopping had become more than just a hobby. 

But how could you NOT buy the Minnie dress? It’s all ruffly and cute! And it could be worn for special occasions…? If those special occasions were in the mid-20th century?

However, she saved the best costume for last.

???

A photo posted by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

Fingers crossed that Luna makes her trick-or-treating debut in Hollywood wearing this little outfit. Well, this or the hotdog. Food costumes are always the way to go. 

As always, Chrissy, we approve.

Pizza Porn Is Getting Popular And We're Not That Surprised

The hardworking statisticians at Pornhub are back at it with new reports about our online habits, and we couldn’t be more grateful to them for their life-changing contributions to our understanding of human behavior.

Their newest findings? “Pizza porn” is spiking in porn searches everywhere, leaving us to wonder exactly what happens to the pizza delivery person during the “money shot.

“Pornhub has nearly 2000 videos with pizza in the title, and each month people search for pizza porn more than 500,000 times,” the insights team writes. 

While the standard “pizza delivery guy” remains popular in porn, the search terms related to pizza are certainly broadening. 

Pizza1
pornhub

“Amateur pizza dare.” There are a lot of possibilities with that one. 

It’s safe to say you’re more likely to consume pizza porn than your parents. 

Pizza2
pornhub

Clearly, there’s an age correlation between pizza porn popularity and age — the cheesy goodness is most popular among viewers ages 18 to 24 and least popular among viewers ages 65 and up.  

While pizza porn viewing does span across gender, men are more likely to search for it. Bet you never saw that coming, right? 

So where does your state rank in pizza porn consumption?

Pizza3
pornhub 

Arizona and Utah really like their porn hot and oily (and cheesy). Mississippi, on the other hand, isn’t feeling too hungry.  

As it turns out, pizza porn has become a global phenomenon. 

Pizza4
pornhub

Romania and South Korea lead the world pizza porn consumption. Apparently, that cheesy goodness isn’t in very high demand in Japan, though. 

It all makes sense. There’s nothing sexier than pizza. 

Perhaps some videos take it too far? To each their own, we suppose…

We’re thinking pizza for dinner tonight. You?

23 People Share What They Always Suspected About Their Families

Every family has secrets. Whether it is the family’s secret apple pie recipe, or the secret child who lives in the attic. Families try to keep a secret a secret by only teaching certain people the recipe, or tightening the child’s chains.

The thing about secrets, though, is that they get out eventually. Someone will leak the recipe, or someone might begin to wonder what those strange noises coming from attic are. 

Even if you try to keep these family secret from your own family member, they will piece it together eventually. After enough slices of apple pie or listening to the howling night after night, the clues start to add up.

To be clear, these are just examples that do not need follow up questions. I promise you, my family does not have a secret apple pie recipe. 

  1. She may as well just see this thing through

    That my mom really doesn’t like us but is still committed

    Ophiopogon

  2. She failed, by the way

    That my mother attempted to kill me and my father, more than once.

    Borrowed_Laptop

  3. Shh.

    I think my dad might be a spy.

    He used to be in the airforce, where he was trained in radio comms and cryptography. He had a top secret clearance due to this job, and spent hours every day training in Wing Chung kung-fu.

    After he “left” he took up a a job with a company in some industrial estate, where he was unable to explain what it was he actually did, and was often sent overseas on “business trips”.

    I think something went down though, because he left and started working on some “small businesses” with a RAAF mate of his. At one point he moved to Malaysia for three months. Something else must have gone down, cause he stopped doing that and went into real estate.

    But I suspect he got bored, and got back into the game, because he started working for another “company” doing another job he can’t really explain, only now I think he’s a handler or something. He’s still sent abroad, but less often. He spends a lot of time at the office, and he’s always working on these weird projects using old radio tech.

  4. We need to have a talk…

    I saw on my younger brother’s birth certificate the “Previous Children From Same Parents” field blank. Either the doctors fucked up, I’m adopted or I’m the milkman’s son. Hoping it’s the first.

  5. He’ll be back any day now

    I think my father hasn’t really been searching the world for that one fine cigarette for twenty years now

  6. That is pretty dark

    This is pretty dark but I think my brother was molested by my grandmother. He slept in her bed until he was 12 and she babied him. Treated him like her husband pretty much.

    FueledBySin

  7. Let’s hear more about this

    That it is the destiny of the men in my family to kill at least one other person, whether because of duty, hate, or necessity. None of us have any criminal record btw.

  8. Just have someone else make the meal

    My aunt cooks the Thanksgiving turkey with the plastic bag of fowl innards still inside the bird.

  9. Did he know you were going to say this?

    I think my Dad might have superpowers and not telling me. His power, he can see the future.

    Many numerous times he has predicted otherwise unpredictable and unforeseeable events and knew things that you otherwise wouldn’t have been able to guess for a while.

    My mother is a virgin

  11. Worse than death by Snoo Snoo

    They eat men. There is not a single man in my family. We are all a pack of women and I think they have developed a taste for blood and testosterone.

    randomlypostin

  12. Haha. Yes. Joking.

    Well, my father has consistently joked with us that he is an alien. Roughly 600 years old. I suspect he’s telling the truth.

    Ignite-athon

  13. So long, everyone

    I suspect both my parents have exactly the life they want now that I’ve moved so far away. My father has my brothers. He was never thrilled with having a daughter. My mother essentially has no kids now since she cut off my older brother (my younger brother is not her son) and rarely speaks to me, if at all. My suspicions of her are based on more evidence, since she abandoned my brother and I as children.

    Asakitty218

  14. You all should go on Maury

    That my father isn’t actually my father. There was a time in the 70’s, when the sexual revolution was in full swing and before my holy-roller uncle had become a holy-roller, that my parents won’t talk about. But unsolicited comments have been made by people outside the family how I look more like my uncle than my father. And if you work backwards from my birthday, it would have taken place around Christmas time when the whole family was together.

    It’s not something I can really prove because no one old enough to remember that time is willing to talk about it. And even though I joke about it with my father, the idea of a paternity test is off the table. The only proof I have is when my mother had started to succumb to Pick’s disease and became really REALLY honest. But even then I can’t guarantee its true since at the time she would also tell us about the aliens that were outside her window. So my life may be a complete lie, or it could be all true. I have no way of knowing which it is.

  15. It was a different time.

    That my great uncle (my grandma’s brother) was gay.

    I would have never had an issue with it, but if he had came out to his family, it would have been a huge scandal.

    There isn’t any kind of proof of it, it’s just a feeling I always got from him (he never got married among other things). And I’m not the only (younger) member of the family that thought so.

    cold_in_the_south

  16. Oh, boy.

    I think my parents hate each other.

    At the start of September my mom wasn’t home and I didn’t have my phone and I forgot her number so I was trying to find a way to call her. Being the nosey little shit I am, I went on her computer and looked through her facebook for numbers of family friends that maybe I could call and get her number from.

    Eventually this led to me going through her e-mail (I know I know this was wrong but I needed to call her it was urgent) I found an e-mail to my dad titled “I don’t love you” I read it over and over again, completely in disbelief. They fought sometimes but they always seemed so happy, I quickly copied the message and saved it to a google doc.

    I haven’t confronted them about it, it’s eating me up inside, but I’m afraid they’re only holding it together to keep me and my sister happy and if I confronted them they would get a divorce. I just can’t do that to my sister.

  17. I think we may all be oops babies

    I was going to be aborted. My mom hates babies and she wanted a career. I was an opps baby and it kinda slipped out of my dad’s mouth. I don’t blame her though.

    lisetteatthelibrary

  18. That adjective does make this better

    That my parents are functioning alcoholics.

    todayisnotyourday

  19. At least they found someone after finding someone

    I’m pretty sure both of my parents are having affairs, and I’m not sure if they both know or they don’t. I’m not sure which one makes me feel worse.

    CattBooty

  20. Family road trips must have been quite an experience

    My dad ran drugs (cocaine) over the border into San Diego in the 70s. His best friend spilled the beans to me one night working on my car after a few barley pops.

    Mentioned how they used to smoke grass and that they were bringing kilos and kilos of white into the US and that it was so damn easy at the time.

    That being said, I over heard him one time talking to a close friend of his that had just gotten a great life insurance plan. My dad says ‘oh they’re not going to know about it until I’m gone. Its so much that they’d want to off me in a quick minute. I saved and saved and saved.’

    I’m convinced he has a decent amount of cash waiting in an out of country bank account for when he retires and for my siblings when he dies. He’s very secretive when it comes to his income and spending. I grew up upper middle class and never really worried about money (I hope that doesn’t sound douchey, just trying to describe it).

    DrOOpieS

  21. Are you sure you don’t believe this?

    i don’t anymore, but when i was little I thought my dad was Indiana Jones

    rainbowcanoe

  22. This a legitimate horror movie

    Something traumatic happened to me when I was around 5.

    I have a blank spot about 7 or 8 months long. I have clear memories of before and after. During the same time, my older sister and brother left home (16 and 17).

    My youngest brother who is about 8 years older than me alluded to it but wont say what. My Mom acts like she doesnt know what I am talking about. My Dad wouldnt say shit, and he died several years ago.

    I dont have any idea what it could be, but 40 years later ill wake up really terrified over an unknown face and fear of nothing in particular.

    I remember moving into this house and later moving out, and almost nothing while we were there. My memories from the time we left that house are fine.

  23. Genes don’t lie

     

    I’m late to the party, but here goes. My suspicion started in 9th grade biology when we were learning genetics, specifically attached/detached earlobes. Mine are attached, whilst my parents were detached. This didn’t add up for me, and always left a question in the back of my mind.

    Fast forward to 2015, dad died in 10, and mom’s health is rapidly deteriorating. I was visiting mom in the home December 27 for XMas and her birthday (28th). She tells me that I was adopted, and that my “cousin” is my real mom, and her two kids are my siblings. I was 39 when I finally got proof to something I always suspected.

    Genetics are never wrong.

This Harry Potter Birthday Party Made Pretty Much Every 'HP' Reference Possible

In a world where ‘Harry Potter’ reigns supreme, it’s not uncommon to have a Harry Potter-themed birthday party. In fact, most 2000s kids have attended at least one party where fake glasses and scars were required. However, not all Wizarding World parties are created equal. 

Imgurian  might take the cake (poor pun intended) for the most intricate birthday party that even J.K. Rowling herself would envy. “I’ve never had a surprise birthday party, let alone a Harry Potter themed party,” she wrote. “I’m stationed in Germany and leaving to go back to the US 5 days before my birthday. My friends decided to throw me a birthday party before I leave, and the party they threw was so amazing!” 

As any true ‘Harry Potter’ fans will see, “amazing” is actually an understatement. 

Guests began by running through platform nine and three-quarters.

The Internet Is Losing Its Mind Over This Man's Smoking Room Sorcery

With the exception of rewatching ‘Harry Potter’ (and sitting through that one weird cousin’s uncomfortably lame card trick) we don’t get to see magic very often. But maybe we’re just looking in the wrong places. 

22-year-old Isamu Felipe Nagano from the Gifu Prefecture in Japan stumbled upon some pretty impressive magic tricks — in the smoking area of a shopping mall.  

Nagano and three friends witnessed these seriously impressive tricks and uploaded this video to Twitter. 

But who is this mysterious, talented man?

mysteriousguy
twitter

“Without saying anything, [the magic man] started floating his paper cup,” Nagano told BuzzFeed News. “We asked him to do it again, and so he did without speaking a word.”

And it sounds like the guy seemed pretty pleased with himself.

“When he was done with his magic tricks, he gave us a smug face. He started smoking looking very satisfied, with a full smile on his face,” Nagano said. 

Twitter couldn’t get enough of this wizardry — the video has been retweeted nearly 60,000 times… And people seem to comment “WTF” quite frequently. 

“What! WTF!!”

Seriously though, how does he do it?

“It’s simple: That dude’s a wizard.”

Despite his Internet fame, the man’s identity remains a mystery. 

Screen Shot 2016-10-25 at 2.06.59 PM

“We don’t know his name,” Nagano. “But my friends who live around the area said that they recognize him although they too don’t know his name.”

Who knew that sorcery could be found in Japanese mall smoking rooms? (h/t buzzfeed)
