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?

Government Officials Tell Church To Stop Feeding The Homeless After Thanksgiving

The United Methodist Church in Malibu, California has offered a free meal to the homeless every Wednesday for the past three years. It’s an act of charity that would seem to go right along with Jesus’ whole ‘be kind to the poor’ message.

“It’s a safe place,” Michah Johnson, a homeless resident of Malibu, told CBS. “And everyone is welcome. And the food is really good. It’s home-cooked. And there’s TLC involved. They keep my spirits up. They keep me accountable. When you’re homeless, it’s very easy to slip off and become jaded.”

But city officials requested a meeting with the church’s leaders to directly ask them to stop feeding the homeless. “Very succinctly, they claimed we are increasing homelessness,” said Dawn Randall, who works with the church.

Commenters on the CBS report were outraged at the heartlessness of the city…

In the statement, the city denies that any decisions were made and says the issue will be addressed at a public meeting tonight. We look forward to getting an update on this matter.

Teen After Dental Surgery Just Wants To Tell His Girlfriend How Much He Misses Her

Coming out of the druggy haze of dental surgery can be incredibly disorienting—as one teen, Dru, learned when his mom Facetime’d his girlfriend after he got his wisdom teeth removed. 

But unlike David After Dentist wondering if this was real life, Dru just starts bawling during the FaceTime and telling his girlfriend how much he misses her. 

“I wanna see her now!” he says (though the exact words are hard to make out through all the gauze in his mouth). 

Basically, it’s totally adorable. And the internet loved it.

Landlords Tell Tenant That She Can't Hang “Non-Seasonal” Pride Flag Off Of Her Porch

When you live in an apartment complex, there are certain rules that everyone has to follow when it comes to the external presentation of the apartments. While some say it’s arranged that way to quell individuality, the reality is that it keeps uniformity among the units. 

The rules are pretty lax, with people regularly putting up various decorations even outside of major holidays, but when the elections ended and an Imgurian that goes by the username RainbowGirl2016 hung a rainbow flag off of her porch in solidarity with the LGBTQ community that was undoubtedly going to face challenges ahead based on the now President-elect’s campaign promises.

It was pretty clear that she was being singled out, as decorations were on many units in the complex, and have been throughout the year. After collecting some evidence, she sent an e-mail to the landlords with photos attached.

The more she pressed, the worse it got, making it clear that the issue they had was with her flag and what it stood for.

And after sending her landlords another e-mail to clarify what ‘season decor’ was, she received this in response.

Which was met with another e-mail, showing that they were bending the rules at will depending on what decorations were going up and on what holidays.

For the time being, she did make a few quick fixes so that her unit would be in compliance.

She also added a ‘well-maintained potted plant,’ which was allowed based on her lease papers.

Management still hasn’t replied, but it doesn’t look like they have any legitimacy to their argument. Stay tuned.
