People Are Sharing Unbelievable True Stories And We're Skeptical

Into even the smallest of lives, some unbelievable wonder falls. Too bad no one will believe it. Even if you have a reputation for brutal honesty, there are some things that happen to a person in their life that you better have witnesses for. 

Twitter user @mhoye decided to give everyone an opportunity to air these special events by asking followers “what’s the least plausible story about yourself that’s true.” The request blew up, because apparently a lot of people have been sitting on some crazy-ass stories for a long, long time.

Some comments are clearly jokes, but most of the stories are almost too weird to make up—or a little too on the nose, like this story about being related to the creator of Pinocchio. Is your nose growing, @AJLorenzini?

There are several stories of muggings that turned out surprisingly well:

Though one openly incorporates lying:

Sure, the ferrets made your dad not go to work:

Does anyone believe Tommy Wiseau had an acting coach?

This just sounds like bad audience etiquette:

There are stories that incorporate famous people, like Mr. Worldwide:

And also famous locations, like a movie set contaminated with poop:

But the stories of coincidence might be the best ones:

And the stories that remind you to clear all your past debts to society ASAP:

Some of these stories seem like they were lifted from the movies:

Both rom-coms and horror flicks:

Or maybe an animated movie about plucky pets:

But basically nothing that has to do with science or medical trauma seems real. How do any of us manage to live so long?

And how do you say no to Justin Bieber? The answer is apparently that you can’t:

But I believe this one, because nothing is more useful than a towel:

And this one, because McDonald’s is like this:

Whether you believe any of these stories or not, they make a fascinating read. And amongst all the tall tales, there’s a least this one guy who brought the receipts:

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.
