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.

Disappointing Photos Of Crowd At Dallas Cowboys Game Emerge Online–And People Aren't Impressed

I’m from Jersey and over here, pretty much everybody’s a Giants fan. Sure you have the occasional Jets fan who swears their team is the best, but they’re a rarity.

But even up here in the dirty-Jers, you’ll drive by a few houses flying flags that rep the Cowboys. I mean, I never knew we had such a sizable demographic of Dallas lovers in the tri-state area, so much so that people have even written about this strange phenomenon, but it turns out that Cowboys fans are everywhere.

Everywhere except this recent primetime game they had against the Redskins.

The teams’ middling records probably had something to do with the fact that there weren’t many people in attendance, but some people on Twitter had different theories.

But it was enough of a disparity from the other games that people definitely took notice. Surely traffic couldn’t have been that bad?

And this Eagles fan couldn’t help but gloat.

It just wasn’t a good look for the mighty franchise.

Fans were saying that they’ve been to high school football games with higher turnouts and honestly, I have too.

Are fair weather fans to blame?

Is there honor in standing by a losing team? Probably. I mean, think about how happy you’ll be once your franchise actually wins the championship.

Remember Bill Murray’s face when the Cubs finally took home the pennant after so many decades?

I’d say it’s worth having some loyalty. So you’ll see me ecstatic when the Raiders win the Super Bowl. The Steelers would be nice, too.

Lorde And Harry Styles Said 'Hello' At Award Show–And People Are Absolutely Losing It

On Monday night, both Harry Styles and Lorde were up for Best International Artist at the 2017 Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards. Styles took the crown, but he was such a class act about it, and Twitter can’t get enough.

On his way to receive his statue, Styles made a detour to Lorde’s seat and gave her a couple cheek kisses, and yes, we’re freaking out:

Are they friends? Is he just being nice? Did he want to recognize how amazing she is? No one knows for certain, but they’re alternately dying and being brought back to life by this iconic moment:

Now, imagine how Lorde feels about getting kissed by Harry Styles.

Young Dumbledore Is Looking Good In 'Fantastic Beasts' And People Are Not Chill About It

Though it won’t premiere for an entire year, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is already throwing out teasers to get everyone super excited about seeing some of their favorites on the big screen. Except their favorites are being played by brand new actors, which means fans of the Harry Potter franchise have to quickly adjust how they’ve been envisioning these characters. And there was one thing people weren’t prepared for. 

Dumbledore is hot now.

I mean, he’s played by Jude Law, who has that face. The hot one. It’s a bit uncomfortable to see someone you’re used to thinking of as a grandpa suddenly look like a truly fantastic beast, but we all have to come to terms with it.

Though it doesn’t seem like Twitter can:

Eh, it’s awkward, but why not enjoy it? Dumbledore won’t be hot forever, but he’s hot now. Or then. Or in the future, when the movie opens? Prequels are too confusing.

Man Discovers Problem With 'Alvin And The Chipmunks,' And People Jumped On The Bandwagon

Needless to say, Alvin and the Chipmunks is one of the greatest, most popular franchises of all time. We all look forward to Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and their seasonal shenanigans. BUT HOLD UP. Have we been so blindly passionate about these harmonizing rodents that we overlooked a major flaw in their story?! 

It seems impossible, but Twitter user Noah Garfinkel has made us question everything:

HOW COULD WE HAVE MISSED THIS?!

We must correct this egregious error!

Let’s brainstorm some possible new names:

Of course, there will always be Alvin purists…

WE’RE LIVING IN A STRANGE NEW WORLD…

And it won’t stop with Alvin. Everything will be different now. Everything will change:

People Are Rising Up Against Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Wrappers–And It's About Time

John Haltiwanger is a reporter for Newsweek who specializes in foreign affairs and defense.

And, now, candy. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are among the finest of the Halloween delights, a prized commodity when it comes to post-trick-or-treat trading. And yet, they have a flaw. Not a fatal flaw, but something that’s bothered us for the 89 years this candy has been on the market. 

Seriously. What the heck, Reese’s? Why do your cups have such a hard time letting go of the pointless paper wrappers? How has this been an issue for longer than Mickey Mouse’s career?

Maybe for their centennial Reese’s will finally give us a working paper wrapper.

People Are Already Dropping Their iPhone X's And We Can't Look Away

We’ve all heard horror stories about the iPhone breaking. Whether it’s because it’s so bendy…

…or scarily easy to shatter…

Surely, the new $ 1,000+ iPhone X would be a more stalwart handset that won’t shatter after slipping from your fingertips?

Well, actually, that’s not the case. There are some unfortunate souls who’ve purchased the phone, on launch day, and have been simultaneously let down by its break-tastic design and their own clumsiness.

And if you thought that fixing an iPhone’s screen was expensive before, just wait till you hear how much it costs to replace the X’s, Essential Phones-esque screen

$ 275, (or $ 25 less than price of a brand-new Moto G5 Plus) is what it costs to replace your iPhone X’s screen. Which makes watching these videos of people dropping them all the more painful to watch.

This guy drops the iPhone on purpose, but it doesn’t make it any easier to see.

Regardless of the phones’ well-documented fragility, people are still flocking to buy them. Will you save up to purchase an iPhone X? Or are you happy enough with your current phone?

Restaurant Introduces 'Clear Pumpkin Pie' And People Have Some Issues

I dunno what everyone’s up in arms about, because the people who made this are straight up genius. 

Alinea is a restaurant in Chicago that has for years been considered one of the finest restaurants in the world, earning a preposterously rare Three Star rating from Michelin. The fella at the helm is Grant Achatz, and I watched his episode of Chef’s Table, and he is a staggering culinary genius with an incredible story: Dude lost his sense of taste to cancer and got it back. And resumed creating insanity like translucent pumpkin pie. 

I’m in. Because of madness like this:

You might look at this pie and think, what happened? This is wrong.

But that’s because you haven’t seen Grant’s episode of Chef’s Table, and therefore you are not yet a believer. This guy served a balloon as desert and diners loved it. 

Behold: disbelievers.

The upshot of all this is that Alinea is something like $ 170-350 a  person, so very few of us will be able to personally try the clear, wondrous pie. So just do yourselves a favor and watch that episode of Netflix’s Chef’s Table. And save up, I guess.

People Are Convinced Donald Trump Pretended To Be His Secretary In A Bizarre 1992 Letter

Back in 1992, a woman claiming to be Donald Trump’s secretary, going by the name of Carolin Gallego, wrote into the New Yorkmagazine, defending Trump against an article by one of the magazine’s writers, Julie Baumgold. 

The letter recently resurfaced online because people are convinced it was written by the now-President Trump. Why? Let’s just say that it’s in his style…

Just look at that last sentence. It’s worth noting that Trump’s assistant for years was a woman named Norma Foerderer. She retired in 2005 and was replaced by Rhona Graff. 

To top it off, Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen told the Washingtonian that he doesn’t recognize the name as someone who had worked for Trump. 

This wouldn’t be the first time Trump has pretended to be someone else. In 2016 the Washington Postreported that Trump would call media outlets under the names “John Miller” and “John Barron,” to give quotes and insights about himself. In 1990, Trump testified that he used those names “on occasion.” 

Twitter seems convinced, though.

Ivanka Trump Claims She Went Through A 'Punk Phase,' And People Are Skeptical

Chances are that if you were anything between a tween and a teen in the 90s, you probably had a punk phase. The Offspring, Paramore, Green Day, and a bunch of other bands often frequented either your CD player or cutting edge 128mb mp3 player. Eventually the punk lifestyle would grab hold and everything from temporary tattoos to animesque hair colors fell under the ‘punk’ moniker for most parents, which includes Ivanka Trump’s mother as told in the pages of her new memoir.

Ivanka wrote about it in her mother Ivana’s new book Raising Trump and said that at one point she dyed her hair blue and was ‘really into Nirvana.’ The thing is, no one is really buying it.

She didn’t provide any photos so folks had to use their imagination.

There was also a problem with her alleged punk obsession.

It was pretty evident for people that actually did dye their hair blue and listen to Nirvana that Ivanka’s punk rock phase was nothing more than a cheap attempt at trying to relate to millennials.
