This Girl Had to Get Surgery After Eating Too Many Spicy Chips

When I moved across the country a couple of months ago, I was trying to find a short-term place to stay while I looked around for an apartment to make my home. I’ve gone through my share of shady sublets, and was so worried I wouldn’t land a spot that I started looking for one to book months in advance. On my first day of browsing, I came across a gorgeous and affordable one-bedroom in a really convenient location, but was super skeptical of the post because of how traumatized I am from my previous experiences. 

I’ve dealt with creeps who ask for a cash deposit then claim they’re in the hospital on the exact same day they’re supposed to meet me for the keys. I’ve had people cancel my reservation once I’ve already landed in their city… Needless to say, I’m a seasoned subletter. When I found this lovely one-bedroom on Craigslist, I was sure the listing was too good to be true. So I took a proactively defensive stance when I reached out via email. I asked for boring specifications on the apartment and went over payment details with exhaustive thoroughness. I even asked if a friend could stop by to make sure there were no secret squatter tenants, or anything sketchy like that. Then, I got an email back. 

TWIST: I recognized the address from the gushing fan mail I had sent it years ago. The apartment belonged to my favorite living writer and here I was, casually emailing with her directly. Flash forward a few months and we’re friendly and occasionally email each other or meet for coffee to catch up. And that’s how my nightmare sublet search turned into a friendship with one of the best and most famous writers of our time.

I live for real-life plot twists like this. They keep us on our toes while we cruise through this journey of life. Which is why when u/whytho37 asked Reddit to share their most insane plot twists, the results were incredible. 

Scroll down for twists so good, you wouldn’t believe they actually happened if you saw them in a film.

David Spade's Tribute To Kate Spade Highlights A Misconception Many Have About Mental Health

David Spade's Tribute To Kate Spade Highlights A Misconception Many Have About Mental Health

The death of a public figure and beloved designer like Spade understandably affected many people, but it’s her immediate family who is bearing the brunt of the trauma from such a sudden loss.

Spade is survived by her 13-year-old daughter, and her husband of 24 years, Andy Spade.

Andy is the brother of actor/comedian David Spade, who spoke on the recent loss of his sister-in-law on Instagram and Twitter.

In his posts he remarked on how funny Kate was, sharing two candid photos of the designer. In both pictures she’s smiling. The moments are personal, beautiful.

“Fuzzy picture but i love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos. We had so much fun that day. She was so sharp and quick on her feet. She could make me laugh so hard. I still cant believe it. Its a rough world out there people, try to hang on.” 

Coming from a comedian, being called funny is pretty much the ultimate compliment. 

Spade, in a separate Twitter post shared this nice photo of Spade supporting the actor at a book signing. He echoed his love of her sense of humor. The look on Kate’s face is a warm one.

Katy at my book signing. I love this pic of her. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how fucking funny she was…  Its a rough world out there people. Try to hang on 

Kate Brosnahan met Andy Spade when they were both students at Arizona State University. Kate moved to New York City after graduating and Andy went to the city with her in 1988. He supported her career as a designer and in 1993 helped her launch a line of accessories. They weren’t married at the time, but they called their new business Kate Spade. It was a smash success.

Andy Spade, in an interview with NPR described his relationship with Kate as being close – that they two of them “grew up together” in a way, starting in their 20s and into their 50s. 

David Spade spoke a bit about his relationship with Andy and Kate back in 2015 on an episode of The Howard Stern Show.

“Growing up, I was always at least getting attention because he was cool. We were skateboarding together, but everyone liked him. He was always way ahead of the game. And then there was a window when I got on SNL where I was actually doing a little better and getter cooler for about a year and a half. Then they started Kate Spade and they blew by me on a rocket ship.”

“I love having family around. Love [that] Andy’s around. He’s a smart f*cking guy. He knows his sh*t. And Katy’s really, really smart and good — and she’s hilarious.”

Kate Spade’s family released an official statement to the New York Times following her death, requesting that they be allowed to grieve in private.

“We are all devastated by today’s tragedy. We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly. We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very difficult time.”  

Her impact on the world of fashion is undeniable.

She will most certainly be missed.

President Trump Declares A New Holiday That Has Many People Concerned

President Trump has proclaimed Monday, May 1st, as Loyalty Day, according to a statement from the White House. The observance of “allegiance to the principles” of the country is a longstanding tradition which dates back to President Eisenhower, who officially enacted the day in 1955.

The Daily Buzz

While he was thinking about May, The President decided to give it a few other labels:

Though many have never heard of it, declaring May 1st Loyalty Day is something almost all presidents do:

Although some point out its origins are a little sketchy:

Some Twitter users have a major problem with the President’s declaration:

For those of you wondering why you’ve never heard of Loyalty Day before now:

Let’s all take a moment this May 1st to remember all the things our country stands for: protection of the oppressed, truth, and about a thousand other things The President sometimes forgets about.

Article Marketing Questions – How Many Articles Do I NEED to Write to Make Money ASAP?

Who else is thinking about using article marketing for their traffic generation strategy? Are you sick and tired of paying for PPC ads, learning new “underground” techniques and trolling after every new “guru” tactic of the week to finally earn what you’re TRULY worth online? If you said YES….the simple truth is that article marketing is probably the BEST, easiest and most elegant way to generate boatloads of backsides to ANy site, service or offer, you choose…and often, make it happen in a hurry. (and for NO cost other than your time)

With this in mind, and as someone who has written thousands of articles that have generated multiple millions of readers in just a few short years, let’s look at one of the MOST common questions I hear.

How MANY articles do you need to write to make a full time living online?

Want to know the answer? It depends on the niche. And on YOU. And on whatever other traffic generation strategies you are using. And how strong and sophisticated your sequence, sales process or marketing methodology really is.

How so? Well…..take heed of a quick example…

In THIS niche, (“article marketing”) you have to write LOTS of articles to get lots of subscribers. Ironically…it’s one of the hardest niches there is, because there is LOTS of supply (articles like this one) and very little demand (people who are genuinely searching for article marketing help!)

What you are reading RIGHT now will probably struggle to get 100 readers. If I was making my living in THIS niche alone….I’d have to write 10 of these a day to really build a business. (if I was relying on this one approach alone)

But….there are OTHER niches that we’ve submitted articles in today, that will get TENS of thousands of readers over the next month, with many thousands of new subscribers, readers and a lot of affiliate sales to boot. Why? They are “sexier” markets, which have HUGE (and universal) appeal, and getting 10, 20 or even 50 thousand people to read a single submission in some of these markets is NOT uncommon.

The bottom line?

You will NEVER get rich writing one or two articles a day…..period. Quantity, is often as important as quality! I’d rather see a new marketer work HARDER, and create and submit more content CONTINUOULSY, than slave over that one perfect piece a day for sure! (because for better or for worse, when it comes to niche market domination, MORE is almost ALWAYS better than less)
