Conan O'Brien Just Explained Why Trump Has Been Silent On Twitter–And We're Chuckling

There was a moment today in which there were no tweets from President Trump. No one knew what to think. Nobody but Conan O’Brien, that is, who chimed in with a characteristically wise insight.

Not long after, the President’s tweets resumed, presumably because he could still hold a phone and tweet with his thumbs, but it might have take him a little while to figure that out.

In the meantime, Twitter nodded their heads in agreement with O’Brien: 

There was some debate over which country deserves credit for the ingenious device:

And some people shared their own speculations:

But we couldn’t agree more with this:

Astronauts Just Tweeted Photos Of California Wildfires From Space–And They're Unsettling

It’s hard to miss the news that huge swathes of Los Angeles and Ventura counties in California are currently on fire. Extreme winds have been blowing smoke and ash across residential areas, and hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated. Footage of people driving down the 405 as the hills burn around them look like the freaking apocalypse. 

If there is a group of people you’d guess are unaware of the natural disaster consuming the West Coast, it’d probably be astronauts. They’ve either got their eyes on the stars, or they’re floating around in space, so far from Earth and all her troubles. 

Actually, it turns out they have a pretty unique perspective on what’s going on down here, because their cameras capture everything:

Astronauts and space stations all over the world are capturing images from the sky of how California looks right now, and it’s freaking scary. The streams of smoke are covering almost the entire city and more. The pictures will make you wonder how anyone is managing to survive down there:

Someone even tried to label all the neighborhoods, to give people a more specific idea of who was under all that ash and smoke:

Who knew this place looked even more frightening from far away.

Ryan Reynolds Just Tweeted A Brutal Birthday Message To His Brother–And We Can Relate

It turns out actor Ryan Reynolds doesn’t save birthday snark for just his wife and kids. Reynolds just sent a little birthday love to his big brother Jeff, and we’re loving the sweet and salty trolling.

The Deadpool star took to Twitter to wax sentimental on his brother’s special day:

No news yet on brother Jeff’s reaction, but Twitter couldn’t get enough.

Anyone can tweet out a generic “Happy Birthday!” But Reynolds has skills.

 Reynolds should be in charge of Twitter birthdays for everyone.

Apparently Reynolds ribbing his brother is becoming something of a family tradition. 

Last year he took a birthday swipe at his big bro that was adorable and similarly snarky.

Who’s counting the minutes to Jeff’s 2018 birthday?!

People Are Losing It Over Coat Meghan Markle Just Wore To Her First Royal Engagement

Soon-to-be Princess Meghan Markle made a a dazzling debut on the world stage this week.

Prince Harry and his fiancée made their first official appearance together in the UK, meeting a community that is “very special” to the Prince. The couple did their inaugural royal walkabout through Nottingham, then attended a World AIDS Day event.

Markle charmed people with her glowing smile and warm enthusiasm — and her chic coat:

Later, they visited the Nottingham academy, where they watched young actors perform an improvised play about a “fictional” young couple going public with their secret romance. One of the actors, 19-year-old Taynika Jarrett-Bennett, said, “We wanted to make it a fun play and involve the royals.”

And Markle won over the cast when she complimented their performance.

And so a new royal chapter begins. We think Princess Diana would be proud.

Wendy's Just Destroyed McDonald's After Their Huge Black Friday Tweet Fail

It’s always a little embarrassing when huge social media accounts don’t proofread their posts, like this copy and paste gaffe from Scott Disick…

For billion dollar corporations the stakes are much higher. Every notable event, or trending holiday, is a chance to promote your product. Naturally, McDonald’s was all set to tweet out a Black Friday post.

Whoever’s handling their social media was on top of scheduling the tweets, however, they had a bit of a snafu when it came to posting the actual tweet itself.

That’s right: McDonald’s posted this embarrassing mistake, but the burger chain seems to be taking the whole thing in stride. Look at this little gem they followed up with:

It wasn’t enough to stop the internet roast machine from getting on McDonald’s case, however.

People guessed what was going through the Mickey D’s social media team’s heads after the accidental post.

While others pointed out that the brand’s exposure as a result of the mix-up might ultimately benefit them.

Then the worst possible thing happened to McDonald’s. Social media savage, Wendy’s, of course, responded to the glaring mistake.

And they didn’t hold back.

Math Students Just Proved How Jack Didn't Have To Die In 'Titanic'

For years, we’ve all suspected that there was enough room for Jack on that door had Rose simply scooted over and helped him up. In fact, we were so sure of it that the Mythbusters tested the theory out themselves. 

But you didn’t have to have your own TV show to show that with minimal effort on Rose’s part, Jack could’ve made it.

And now, Abigail Wicks, Christy Zhang, and Julia Damato from Westminster, England have proven mathematically that Jack could’ve been spared from his impromptu burial at sea.

In an interview with The Advertiser, the 10th graders explained that they could’ve both made it had they climbed onto the door together and stuck their life jackets underneath.  15-year-old Abigail explained:

The group won the National Maths Talent Quest with their airtight submission. It’s no surprise considering that the movie came out two decades ago and people are still arguing that there was a chance Jack could’ve been saved.

In Rose’s defense, you’re probably not going to be all that analytical when you’re soaked and half-dead to begin with. 

What do you think? Was Rose unnecessarily vilified over the years or was Jack robbed of his Happily Ever After?

This Famous Haunted School In Ireland Just Got Even More Nightmare Inducing

Well it looks like they’ve got even more footage of the ghost at work, and although the entire thing can certainly be fabricated, if the footage is true, then we’ve got some evidence of paranormal activity going on. If it’s true, of course.

Check out the latest videos to see what I mean. 

First up, is this uncanny shake.

Then, if you check out the top left corner (where the timestamp info is), you’ll see a chair or other piece of furniture move through the hallway.

Then it moves, again, just way, way faster.

Oh and this next one’s no big deal, a backpack just falls right off the top of the locker and onto the ground. Nothing to see here.

And then a poster gets torn off the wall.

Then, there are even more moving chairs.

Look, I’ve got a message for everyone at Deerpark C.B.S., I know it might seem like a good idea to go to that school Halloween dance, but if my knowledge of horror films are any indication, ya’ll are gonna want to get the heck out of there like immediately.

You can check out the whole video, which the school kindly uploaded online.

Before you get to thinking that there’s no way in heck this video could be faked, just know that there are several YouTube videos that convincingly debunk common ghost video hoax methods. The fact that Deerpark is doing this and sharing all the evidence with the rest of the world, instead of calling for a shaman or priest, or buying another building entirely, makes me think the whole thing’s a prank.

But it’s still kinda cool to believe.

Screenshots Of Women Asking Guys Out On Dates Will Help You Just Go For It

Oloni is a dating blogger with a big following on Twitter and she posed a very difficult challenge to her fans. The Dating Challenge.

All you have to do is be brave enough to ask…

People have answered Oloni’s call and the beating of their own hearts. All they have to do is ask out someone they’re interested in and share the results. This is so scary! We’re a society used to only asking out strangers on dating apps, not humans we meet and see in real life. Oloni is really pushing here.

But a lot of people have been doing it and sharing their screenshots of their successful date attempts. They are so freaking cute:

Though there have been some failures:

Hey, that’s the risk you take when you try to be brave in love! 

And you can always not try.

Ryan Reynolds Just Got A Taste Of His Own Medicine With Blake Lively's Happy Birthday Burn

If there ever was an actor who earned the title of “Absolute Gem” on social media, it’s Ryan Reynolds.

Whether it’s providing these amazingly hilarious responses to fans dirty tweets, or golden nuggets about the joys of parenting like this treat below, the man always delivers.

Now you might’ve remembered this incredible birthday wish Reynolds gave to wife Blake Lively on Twitter that had the internet cackling with joy.

The man is a master of sarcasm and sincere-cynicism, did you expect him to give a standard, Happy Birthday tweet to his significant other? If you thought that, then you probably don’t know Ryan Reynolds at all.

And even though Blake’s never been one to shy away from proclaiming her feelings for her hubby, she also proved she can go toe-to-toe with the Happy Birthday jokes, as evinced by the following tweet:

Tit-for-tat. Crop-for-crop. Ryan for Ryan.

People loved Lively’s savagery and ability to dish out the same sweet photo-cropping revenge against her hubby once his birthday rolled around.

I can’t wait to see what Reynold’s response will be. For now, though, Lively’s definitely winning the Happy Birthday war.
