People can’t figure out what the hell is happening in this photo

Some pictures are worth a thousand words. For other pictures, there are no words.   A cursed image of well, of something, has been making the rounds on Twitter recently. Upon first glance, it seems to be a hodgepodge of items. Stare at it for more than a couple of seconds, though, and it quickly descends into murkier territory.  This is like realizing you’re having a dream while dreaming. — aquarian-sunchild (@aquariansunchi1) April 23, 2019 I’m not sure what “guelves” are but I see them, too.  This photo knows the…

Video about swiping guys on Tinder is so real it hurts

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of swiping on men on Tinder, you can probably relate to this video.  A skit by writers Jon Foor and Luke Strickler poked fun at the overplayed trend of everyone on Tinder having exactly two personality traits: Liking The Office and loving dogs.  “Where’d you grow up?” Strickler asks his hypothetical match, jabbing at the repetitive, surface-level conversations people on the app have before either meeting up or ghosting each other entirely. “Real though, if you’re racist, sexist, homophobic, or not hot, this will…

Justin Timberlake happy to see *NSYNC reunited at Coachella

As Coachella’s second weekend wrapped up, Kanye West celebrated Easter with a live streamed Sunday Service.  Kanye’s Sunday Services were made public in January. They aren’t quite traditional church services with sermons and declarations of faith, but videos of the secretive weekly events show that the services do focus on performing music with religious undertones. The events are invite-only and guests have to sign a nondisclosure agreement before attending. Since guests are forbidden from speaking to press about it, outsiders have only seen snippets of the services through Instagram posts…

Trump wants astronauts back on the moon by 2024

Donald Trump is seeking re-election in 2020, and in case you had any doubts he tweeted a painfully bizarre hype video to confirm. The two-minute-long video displays the words “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist. Donald J. Trump. Your vote proved them all wrong.”  It’s also set to music from The Dark Knight Rises? OK! The video features dramatic music and clips from Trump’s time in office, along with footage of Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Rosie O’Donnell, Bryan Cranston, Amy…

Man subscribes to BBC push notifications, immediately feels he’s being questioned by a curious small child

So many questions.Image: Shutterstock / StepanPopov Turning on push notifications can be a very useful and informative thing to do. It can also be a very annoying addition to your existence, rather akin to being prodded by someone whose sole purpose is to inform you of horrifying news from around the world.  But, TV comedy writer James Colley discovered that some push notifications — namely those sent by BBC Science Focus Magazine — are a bit like interacting with a child who has an incessant supply of questions about the…

Guys find way to hack McDonald’s self-service machine to get a free burger

Not a day goes by on the internet without someone trying to come up with a new way to outsmart a computer. The Australian friends in the video above found a way to trick the McDonald’s self-service machine into giving them 11 free burgers (well, one free burger and 10 pattyless burgers, at least). Don’t try this one at home, folks.  The guys talked through what they were doing as they filmed the self-service screen. Here’s how they did it… First, they selected the dollar hamburger option on the menu…

Image: Getty Images Where is everyone on Instagram getting these gorgeous plants? Even if you denounce influencer culture, you have to admit that the social validation of a good selfie is intoxicating. Whether you posed in front of the bright pink wall in West Hollywood or embraced your heavenly side with angel wing murals scattered across the United States, the backdrop makes the photo. But if you want to add some depth to your posts (and quality to your life) look into houseplants. Not only do houseplants add color to…

Watch viral gymnast Katelyn Ohashi’s amazing new floor routine

UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi, who went viral back in January for her electrifying floor routine, is back for more. Ohashi debuted a new floor routine Saturday at the PAC-12 women’s gymnastics championship in West Valley City, Utah. The routine features music from only female artists, including Tina Turner and Janet Jackson — both of whom were featured in her original viral routine — and Beyoncé. (Though music from Michael Jackson appeared in her previous routine, Ohashi chose not to include any here in the wake of Leaving Neverland.) Unsurprisingly, Ohashi…

Lupita Nyong’o went to some ‘dark places’ filming ‘Us’

If you need proof that kids these days are alright and amazing, simply cast your eyes on the students at New Jersey’s North Bergen High School who put on a stage play version of the classic sci-fi horror film Alien.  The play was complete with all the trappings of the film, including the infamous facehugger alien, the stomach-bursting scene, and, yes, the large, menacing xenomorph that has come to haunt the nightmares of generations of moviegoers.  And it all looked amazing. The school put on a pair of performances for…

Logan Paul is many things, but thankfully he is not a flat Earther.  In a 50-minute, 2-second mockumentary that included a torrid affair with a Flat Earther, a betrayal from a roommate, and a rap that rhymes “NASA” with “I think I’m gonna passa,” the YouTube star announced that no, he doesn’t actually think the Earth is flat.  SEE ALSO: We watched the feature length Jake Paul docu-series finale so you don’t have to Sporting a newly grown beard, Logan’s scripted-ish movie takes a deep dive into the Flat Earth…

Casey Neistat says he’s leaving social media, sort of

YouTuber Casey Neistat says he’s done with social media… on his phone at least. “I have a bonafide, proper, no sarcasm, proper addiction to social media,” Neistat said in his most recent video. “I can’t have a conversation, I can’t sit through a movie … I can’t drive my car more than a couple of blocks without thumbing through social media.”  Calling out his own “mindless scrolling,” Neistat said he’s been losing time and health while getting stressed out over Instagram and Twitter.   When Neistat’s youngest daughter Georgie was…

I regret to inform you that Jake Paul’s new song is a bop

It’s with heavy hearts we declare Jake Paul’s new song “Im Single” as … kind of catchy actually.  There’s something especially soul-sucking about admitting that one of YouTube’s most despised, most popular, and wealthiest stars created something good. But Jake’s lowkey ballad about coming to terms with a break up is oddly refreshing, especially compared to his cringeworthy past songs like the Team 10 manifesto “It’s Everyday Bro” and its follow-up, “I Love You, Bro.”  A heavily autotuned Jake reflects on his very public breakup with Erika Costell late last…
