Game of Thrones took over the airwaves on Sunday, and also destroyed everyone’s timelines with jokes and complaints about Ed Sheeran. Yes, the long anticipated season 7 premiere was finally here and you know what that means: time to take a brief break from masturbating.
The Independent reports that popular pornography site Pornhub shared their statistics from the hour on Sunday night that HBO was airing GoT. They found that during that time period, traffic to Pornhub dipped by 4.5 percent, saying that shows a “considerable change in visitors as Sunday night is one of the most popular times for people to visit Pornhub.”
I know what you’re thinking. That’s not such a huge dip. But when you actually look at the graph, it’s pretty hilarious:
The question is, are people so in love with Game of Thrones that they’re willing to stop pleasuring themselves for an hour to enjoy it, or are they just finding their pleasure…elsewhere?
When season 6 premiered, Pornhub says they had a drop as well, but only by 4.1 percent. People have gotten even more excited for this show than ever before, perhaps even too excited in ways we don’t want to contemplate. But the site says their biggest dip ever was during the finale of season 6, when they experienced a 5.2 percent traffic dip. People always get worked up when you leave them wanting more.
Pornhub seems more amused by the loss of customers than angry, as does everybody else.
And it’s not the first time someone has made the connection that they’re more or less the same thing:
We’ll see whether porn or Jon Snow can keep our attention longer this season.
A Tasmanian man has gone viral for drinking himself into a blackout and getting saved from some bizarrely friendly officers. Australians sure seem to do policing differently. News.com.au reports that Reece Park had a wild night and ended up in a cab somewhere near his home completely blotto on Friday evening. The driver called the cops, and instead of slamming Park in jail, Constables Natalie Siggins and Jeremy Blyth escorted him home and left a selfie on his phone, so he’d remember how he got there:
Don’t worry, someone asked the important question:
It’s hard not to think about all the ways this could have gone wrong for Park. This image was taken in a pretty small town on a somewhat isolated island, and they apparently have some unique ideas on community policing. A few Queensland commenters on Reddit have said that officers are called the police service rather than the police force so as to seem more community-oriented. They’re at least in touch enough to know that the photo has become wildly popular on Reddit. The Tasmania Police addressed it on their Facebook page, writing:
Park and his saviors were even interviewed on the local news:
When asked if the experience might have turned him off drinking, Park only responded, “I dunno.” Hmm, think we know what that means.
Like many of us on New Year’s Eve, Imgur user dentaldan23 and his friend were flat out drunk. His friend was so drunk that she accidentally left her purse in an Uber. And the good thing about Uber is that you actually know who has your purse.
She contacted Uber, and they arranged to have the purse dropped off the next day. But when she got it back, she discovered that the purse had been on a bit of an adventure since she last saw it.
The post reads: “Friend left her purse in an Uber on NYE. Found some interesting pictures on her phone when she retrieved it the following day.”
Commenters were pretty impressed:
“To whomever did this: if you are female, will you marry me. If you are male, can we grab a beer sometime. It’s on me, you glorious bastard,” one commenter wrote.
“I would be simultaneously amused and angered,” another joked.
I’m a terrible decorator. If you’ve ever seen my idea of what a “fixed” bed looks like, you’d probably think that a second grader was behind it.
And don’t even get me started with festive decorations. Sure, I love the holidays and treating people to gifts and food and drink, but if you expect me to make a place look nice, well, you’re asking the wrong guy.
Which is why I’m mesmerized by these people who went all out on their Christmas decorations.

I remember nearly every detail, down to the socks he was wearing, when I first brought my son home from the hospital. The way I gingerly put him in the car seat. The way my wife kept looking at him as she sat in the back of the car. His little polar bear onesie and how the flowers in the vase tipped over and got water all over my laptop, breaking it. Me being angry for two seconds then looking at my son’s face and forgetting all about it.
I still have the clothes my baby boy was wearing that day tucked away. I can’t wait to show him that blanket and outfit in the future. And who knows? If he has a kid one day maybe they can use the same outfit and blanket, but that’s years from now.
Most likely the blanket and clothes will be lost or destroyed from now until then, but I admit that if I lost that t hing now, I’d be crushed.
Just like this family was to discover that the homemade blanket they brought their baby girl from the hospital in went missing.
So her parents put out the word in hopes that their blankie would be found.
Today at brunch (McGuire’s) somewhere between our walk inside, while we were eating, or our exit out of the restaurant, our precious girl’s blanket went missing. (This is the blanket she sleeps with every night and was brought home from the hospital wrapped in). Unaware of this until we made it home, I rushed back to McGuire’s with no luck, searched the whole restaurant up and down along with the parking lot. I know social media is big nowadays so every share means a lot and we would really like to have the blanket returned, no harm no foul on whether it was accidentally picked up and forgot about or whatever may have happened to it. Please share this and hopefully this hand-made, sentimental blanket can be returned to the rightful owner, contact me if it is found, thank you all. Corey Ness – (850)-293-2176! ?
