Paris Hilton Asked People To Tell Her Something She Doesn't Know And Twitter Obliged

Paris Hilton Asked People To Tell Her Something She Doesn't Know And Twitter Obliged

The art of being famous simply for just trying to become famous isn’t anything new.

And while the Kardashians have perfected the art of being well-known for basically nothing, if you remember the early-2000s, the days of T-Mobile Sidekicks and bedazzled-everything. The days when Lil’ Jon ruled the airwaves, you might remember a socialite and daughter of hotel tycoon Paris Hilton.

The OG-famous for being famous’ sake girl. And by OG I literally mean OG, she basically provided a blueprint for Kim on how to climb the fame ladder.

Kim was once friends with Paris, and before she was the champion pioneer of thrusting her family into reality fame, she was organizing Hilton’s closet and stepping out of the way of photos so other people could snap pictures with the tall socialite.

Their careers took similar trajectories – both women shot to fame after leaked sex tapes of theirs hit the market, the Kardashians took the scandal and ran with it. And while the K’s family drama is pretty much the only celeb-trash-gossip that continues to go strong, year after year, Paris’ career has comparatively stepped out the reality TV limelight and is pursuing a diverse number of other business opportunities.

She also tweets thought-provoking questions like this:

Now that could’ve been an innocent and appropriate caption for a part sassy/all glamorous photo she posted on Twitter. But people took her question to heart and truly went out of their way to tell Hilton something she probably didn’t know.

What started as a joke soon became a laundry list of obscure and interesting facts. Like, did you know that “Chef” is an incomplete title?

You might’ve forgotten this gem from geometry class.

Things got into the scientifically dense real quick, too. Fascinating nonetheless, however.

I’m going to pretend like I know what this guy is talking about right now.

Now I WISH I picked up on this before, are you serious? One, three, five, seven, nine…my God…

I knew there was a reason I inherently loved sloths. Do they not poot because they’re that lazy? That’d be amazing.

Grammatical and linguistic rulings were also being served up.

More obvious jokes began rolling in, but they were true none the less.

Check out this bit of cosmic knowledge right here. White night sky, baby.

Oh, did you want a lesson in some obscure geometry? Well then you’ve come to the right place.

Some of the facts hit a bit closer to home, however. Like this photo of Jesse Heiman and Paris.

How great would it be if Paris has that photo printed somewhere on an office desk and Jesse assumed she forgot they ever took it?

Ryan Reynolds Told Off Someone Who Doesn't Like Him Visiting Kids With Cancer As Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds is the Internet’s sweetheart, but usually because he is a potty-mouth prankster. We all like a handsome rogue with a talent for social media.

That fits in with his character Deadpool, who he promotes in ways that some might argue are inappropriate for children.

But kids are some of his biggest fans!

On Monday, Reynolds posted photos of kids from the Make A Wish Foundation who came to visit him on set for Deadpool 2. These are kids battling life threatening illnesses, who likely look up to Deadpool because he’s sassy and a fighter and also has two very cool katana swords. 

It looks like Reynolds and the crew gave them a memorable time:

Unfortunately, we always get some haters in the comments.

On his photo, Reynold’s wrote:

“One of the best parts of playing the Big Red Jackass is welcoming @makeawishamerica and @childrenswishfoundation onto set. Deadpool kicked Cancer in the taint, but these kids do it for real every day. These foundations make dreams come true for a lot of of super-brave kids. They also make dreams come true for parents, who just wanna see their kid smile. HUGE thanks to our Prop Master, Dan Sissons, for making sure every kid left with his/her own sword. (Bamboo versions. Not stabby-stabby versions.)”

And then down in the comments someone responded to the lovely gesture by writing, “Guys [D]eadpool is [an] R rated movie and those kids are watching it…I think something is wrong here.” They also included an angry emoji face, if you weren’t sure how they felt about it.

But our Insta-Hero didn’t take it lying down.

“Yup,” Reynolds responded, “Deadpool is Rated R. If my kid went through a fraction of the sh*t these kids deal with daily, I think they can watch whatever they like. That’s just my .02 cents.”

Don’t go up against Deadpool. 

Or Ryan Reynolds. Like, look at him:

Trump Supporter Posts Email While 'Boycotting' Netflix And It Doesn't End Well

Yesterday, Twitter user and Donald Trump supporter, Baked Alaska, decided to cancel his Netflix subscription over the recently announced show Dear White People. The show is based on a satirical comedy film of the same name which explores racial tensions from the perspectives of several black students at an Ivy League college. 

This shouldn’t be a surprise considering that Baked Alaska was due to attend the pro-Donald Trump ‘DepolaBall’ in December, but was removed from the list of headliners when it emerged that he had a history of anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi tweets about the “Jewish question.”

Baked Alaska claimed in a tweet that the show “promotes white genocide,” and included a screenshot of his canceled Netflix subscription. 

For some reason, he decided to leave his email address in the screenshot. Here’s what happened next…

At least he sees the humor in it?

As does the rest of the internet.

These Are The Friendliest Countries In The World And America Doesn't Even Break The Top 10

Whenever my friends and family visit from overseas, they’re usually shocked by how closed-off people are in North Jersey and NYC. They were dumbfounded that I didn’t know more about my neighbors and at first, I thought they were just being dramatic. 

The more I thought about it though, the more I realized that I really don’t know my neighbors at all. Hell, whenever I drive if someone cuts me off I throw out such horrible swear words and vile insults that I’m taken aback by just how disgusting I can become.

But according to this report, the rest of the United States doesn’t really suffer from that problem: it turns out that there are countries that are a lot less friendly than America.

InterNations surveyed more than 14,000 people from 67 countries around the world to find out what the most and least friendly countries were.

The study specifically focuses on ex-patriates, i.e., people who have decided to leave their country of origin to go and permanently live in another country.

The United States dropped 13 places from last year’s study, coming in at 26.

One of the biggest drawbacks many cited as to relocating to the US was the amount of taxes and lack of services provided for said taxes. But if you’re a US citizen, you wouldn’t need a survey to tell you that.

They also broke down the reasons why people moved abroad: some did it for school, work, for romance, or to accompany a spouse’s work relocation.

According to the report, the friendliest country surveyed was Taiwan. The least friendly? Kuwait, which was pretty much confirmed by this guy.

internations

Malta, Ecuador, Mexico, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Australia, Austria, Luxemborg, and Czech Republic rounded out the top 10.

The survey considered many factors, including quality of life, ease in finding a job, political stability, and overall friendliness of the people.

You can check out the entire report here, which provides a boat-load of data. Definitely worth looking into if you’re planning on shipping out in search of greener pastures.

Where does your country rank on the list?

This Grumpy Old Man Is Everyone Who Doesn't Understand Pokemon Go

When something wonderful enters our lives, there’s always someone who hates it no mater what. Take Pokémon Go for example. Pretty much everyone in the world is playing it and saving animals in the process

But one guy is sick and tired of people hunting for Pikachu in his yard. Reddit user Poopanddoodle recently posted a photo of a sign he spotted while using the app.

Here’s the full text:

This is a PRIVATE yard, for Tenants of this building only, NOT for Pokemon chasing.

GET A LIFE AND STAY OUT OF MY YARD.

This Whole Pokemon Hunt Is by far the Stupidest Thing I have ever Seen, and I have lived through:

– Hammer Pants;
– Crystal Pepsi;
– Trickle-Down Economics;
– the First-Past-The-Post Electoral System;
– People Taking Jean Chretien Seriously;
– the Macarena;
– the “Will-Ennium”,
– the Presidency of George W. Bush; and
– ten Seasons of CSI: Miami.

There is a Bar up the street and around the Corner. Go there, Have a Beer, and seriously think about your life choices.

This guy doesn’t like Jean Chretien OR Pokémon Go?! What a hater. Twitter user Joe Heenan decided to give his rebuttal to this grumpy old man…

His note reads:

This is a private garden.

But if you see a Pokemon in here, come and get it.

ENJOY LIFE.

This whole Pokemon hunt is by far one of the best things I have ever seen. 

Don’t let:

Bitter killjoys

People with no imagination

Folk that hate fun

Members of the conservative party [the United Kingdom’s ruling political party]

Angry dads

Donald Trump

Tell you otherwise.

This is awesome!

Now go and catch as many fucking Pokemon as you can.

And people seemed to love his response.
