Woman Tweets 2008 Trivial Pursuit Question That Did Not Age Well–And People Can't Even

Writer S.E. Sinkhorn posted a pic to Twitter of an old Trivial Pursuit card from 2008. Less than ten years ago in time, perhaps a million years in feelings. There’s so much we know now that we didn’t know then, and most of it is bad.

It’s perhaps understandable then, why Sinkhorn took the question, “Who has never been Batman?” pretty personally.

In 2008, the makers of Trivial Pursuit thought we’d live in a world where Ben Affleck would never be Batman. Little did they know.

Everyone in the replies was upset that the game gave movie execs ideas, but they still had a few knocks to get out against other offending Batmans:

Also, someone pointed out this was a similar question in an edition of Cranium, though they don’t specify the year this edition was printed. But if it preceded Affleck’s casting as the dark knight, that’s scary:

Woman Captures Instance Of Catcalling On Video During A Walk–Uploads Online For All To See

A woman in Kallangur, Australia, has been getting harassed by the same old creep for months, and finally decide to do something about it.

While her husband waited on a street corner, she walked by the neighborhood lech, knowing he would likely give her a hard time again. She had her camera ready, according to the Daily Mail, who spoke with the unidentified woman after footage of the altercation went viral.

As she walks by him, the man seems to say, “Nice set of boobs you’ve got,” seemingly out of nowhere.

At that she turns and tells him she just recorded him talking about her breasts, and he suddenly tries to act like they’re having a  normal conversation.

“How are you?” he asks. “Good? Your husband’s on the corner, isn’t he?”

“I just videoed you saying that, d***head,” she responds.

“Oh, sorry,” he says. 

“I’m going to take it to the police. K**bhead,” she says. In text it looks angrier than when she actually says it. She sounds nervous and uncomfortable to be confronting the guy who has been harassing her.

And that’s what she told the Daily Mail, saying it was extremely difficult to film him.

“I was shaking. I’m not a soft person,” she said. “I couldn’t even speak properly. You could tell in my voice I was really nervous. I was frightened.”

“He was so stupid he didn’t realise I was videoing him,” she added. “It’s worse that he’s an older man and you’d think that he’d know better. You’d expect a 12-year-old child to say something silly like that.”

The woman’s husband wrote a post on Facebook, according to Indy 100, saying that if other women recognize this guy they should come forward.

Woman Gets Punched In The Face For Asking Man To Stop Manspreading

In New York City, riding the subway is a fact of life for most commuters. Sometimes, however, that means sharing a train with some questionable characters. For instance, Sam Saia was on her way to work when the man next to her began “manspreading,” that much-loathed practice of opening his legs to take up more than his fair share of space.  

Since he was pushing her into the wall, Saia asked the man to stop. He responded by punching her in the face.

After the man attacked her, several bystanders jumped in and confronted him. 

One video shows another passenger holding the assailant’s arms down and demanding he get off at the next stop:

After the incident, Saia attempted to file a report at the New York Police Department’s 17th precinct, but, once there, she was passed off to the Transit District 34 headquarters. The headquarters then told her that filing a report with them would be a waste of time since she could do so at any precinct (confusing), so she decided to take matters into her own hands. 

Saia commented to the Daily News:

I said to myself, ‘OK, I’ll just blow it up on social media. I’m here doing what the police are supposed to do. I just want awareness and I want us to be safe.

People shared Saia’s Facebook post over 1,200 times before it was removed, presumably due to the internal inquiry initiated by the New York Police Department. Her words online have brought widespread awareness to the issue — and connected her with the bystander who took the video.  

On Friday, Saia posted on Facebook:

The internet can be a beautiful thing!

Woman Says That Taco Bell Is 'Racist' Because They Don't Have French Fries

Being drunk and ordering fast food is a time honored tradition, but there are some rules. Don’t puke and don’t give the cashier a hard time. Fortunately, this possibly wasted girl in a Taco Bell managed not to vomit, but unfortunately she made a few Taco Bell employees pretty miserable.

In this two minute clip posted to YouTube, a woman approaches the counter and attempts to order a “medium fries from the dollar menu.” She is absolutely sure she is in a Burger King. The cashier explains that they have tacos or burritos, because this is a Taco Bell. The employee sounds a little sarcastic, but just barely considering the situation.

Then the customer turns to address the other patrons as though they’re gonna back her up, saying, “This is racism at its f—king finest.”

Someone off camera says, “It’s not, girl.” Thank goodness.

But she insists, “No, it is.”

At this point the cashier tries to help her read the menu, which she seems to be struggling with, but the woman decides to leave. Though she doesn’t seem to know exactly what’s going on, she at least knows she’s embarrassing herself.

Oddly enough, some Taco Bells are serving nacho fries, which are potato fries with a cheese dipping sauce. But it doesn’t seem like that’s what this woman is referencing, much to everyone’s amusement.

Being too confused to know what you’re eating is one thing, but don’t politicize Taco Bell. You’re ruining everyone else’s buzz.

Woman Drops Phone On Neighbor's Balcony And Hatches Epic Plan To Get It Back

Try being conscious about your phone use for the day. An easy way to do that is to count the number of times you reach into your pocket to pull it out and look at it. It should be about 72 million times a day, give or take a few pulls.

Or you could just leave your phone at home when you go out somewhere. Count how many seconds it takes before anxiety sets in.

So you can only imagine the horror that Twitter user Liz Bertorelli felt when she somehow dropped her phone onto her downstairs neighbor’s balcony.

She watched, utterly helpless, as her phone moved on without her, receiving notifications that went unchecked. She dropped a note for her neighbor to find, but the wind got in the way.

Users chimed in, offering helpful solutions to her no-phone dilemma.

She then committed to some ideas to see if anything would help get her phone back.

She started getting desperate.

But at least she kept her humor intact throughout the trying ordeal.

Some people demanded to know just where the heck their neighbors were after all this time.

Sadly, she needed to leave for work without her phone.

It turns out the imminent threat of rain became a valid concern.

Someone suggested she contact her building super.

But she already tried that.

Her downstairs neighbors still didn’t pull through, either.

She tried gathering all her phone saving items in her home to see if anything could be done.

But all she could do was still watch her notifications roll in, completely helpless to check them.

But she did come up with a way to protect her precious phone from the merciless elements.

Liz still doesn’t have her phone back, but she’s holding out hope.

Woman Takes Selfies With Every Guy Who Catcalls Her For A Month

Noa Jansma is a 20-year-old student in Amsterdam who has turned the unpleasant and sometimes very scary experience of street harassment into an art project, Bored Panda reports. On her Instagram account @DearCatcallers, Jansma wrote about her intention of taking a selfie with every person who catcalls her as she walks down the street:

Jansma took selfies with the alleged catcallers for the entire month of September, and they are all ages, races, and walks of life. The only thing they really seem to have in common is supposedly exhibiting zero shame in what they’re doing. Some even cozy up to Jansma like they’re friends with her, which is maybe the most unsettling thing of all:

Beginning in 2018, catcalling in the Netherlands can be subject to a find of almost $ 220. It seems like a law that would be difficult to implement, but then again, if cat callers are this bold, Jansma and young women like her will be able to identify their harassers immediately. They’ll have the receipts.

Woman Complains That She's Allergic To Dogs On Flight, Gets Removed From Plane

Well Southwest airlines recently removed a passenger from its plane, but for an entirely different reason: because she said she was deathly allergic to dogs.

The trouble is, she allegedly didn’t have an allergy card to prove her claim. After speaking with law enforcement officers and refusing to leave the airline, she was forcefully removed.

CBS reported that the man who recorded the scuffle, Bill Dumas, said the officers “spent a long time talking to the woman” before finally removing her from the flight.

For the most part, people on Twitter are siding with the airline and/or the two dogs, one of which was a service animal, as the woman had allegedly complained about them and wanted them off the flight before she was eventually taken off the plane.

Others couldn’t believe that the folks at Southwest “picked” dogs over human beings.

Others don’t know why she resisted in the first place.

While others suggested that this was probably the best case scenario for the removed passenger.

Southwest released the following statement, explaining, “We are disheartened by the way this situation unfolded and the Customer’s removal by local law enforcement officers. We publicly offer our apologies to this Customer for her experience and we will be contacting her directly to address her concerns.”

What do you think? Was it excessive to take her off the plane?

Guy Learns The Hard Way Why You Should Never Body Shame A Woman On Twitter

Leyton Mokgerepi probably thought he was creating a relatable meme when he tweeted this:

What ended up happening, however, was the complete opposite. People immediately ostracized him online for posting a fat joke at another woman’s expense. A woman, who, actually looks pretty darn good in her photo, if you ask me. And most importantly, of course, is that women don’t have to meet any one standard of beauty, and don’t exist just for other people to find them attractive.

Something that other Twitter users were quick to point out as well.

And as it turns out, because the internet is a place full of cats and karma, and in this case, boatloads of karma, the woman in the photo Leyton tried shaming came out, on the record, that she in fact doesn’t like him.

He tried to save face after her post by calling her, “Girlfriend Goals.”

But it was clear for all to see it was a feeble attempt, so Twitter reminded him of how badly he was dragged.

Her tweet even caught the attention of some celebs.

At the end of it all, @Thickleeyonce was floored by the positive response people had for her after Leyton’s initial attempt to shame her.

So the next time you try to body shame someone online, remember: you might just get dragged.

Woman Dyes Her Face Pink With 'Washable' Paint And The Internet Wasn't Kind

If you plan on putting paint anywhere near your skin, make sure it’s body paint. Some paint may say that it washes off of skin, but they’re usually talking about small amounts of paint you accidentally get on your arm. Poster paint probably isn’t going to wash off easily, as Twitter user Leah recently discovered… 

People were relentless in their mocking.

This Woman With A Missing Limb Wrote The Best Tinder Bio Ever

The internet came across the best Tinder bio possibly ever this week, and, well—see for yourself. It was created by a woman who is missing one arm.

Of course, everyone fell in love with her.

But the real fun happened when Lauren—the creator of the profile—discovered that her Tinder profile had gone viral.

“I got home pretty drunk, and I don’t remember typing it up really,” she told BuzzFeed in an interview. “I just woke up to someone DM’ing me a Reddit post asking if it was me, and I was like damn, I guess it is.”

Lauren lost her arm in a moped accident, she told BuzzFeed, and has used social media to help cope with her disability. 

“For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes,” said Lauren. “But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped.”

She’s basically out of everyone’s league.
