As I’m sure most of you know by now, Facebook recently purchased WhatsApp for an insane $19 Billion dollars. With that amount of money you could buy a small country (seriously). In fact, you could buy a whole lot of really expensive stuff. For example, here are 14 things that are cheaper than WhatsApp.
If your high school senior portraits were anything like mine, your parents paid $400 for some Glamor Shots of you wearing a suit, hunched over a mirror with your fingertips touching so you looked pensive (Montgomery Burnsin‘). Though I look back at these portraits thinking “damn I look ridiculous,” my blown highlights and airbrushed features pale in comparison to the absurdities found in most South Korean high school year books. Apparently, after spending your entire life in the school system, Korean youth are allowed to get loosey goosey a little bit and depict themselves in their yearbooks in any manner they deem appropriate. Can anyone from Korea corroborate this? (My favorite is the one of the dude holding the fish.) source: rocketnews24. Thanks Robert for the tip!
If Michael Jordan had an Instagram he would put most rappers these days to shame. From shoes, to rides, to trophies, MJ has everything needed to properly stunt on the haters. In honor of MJ turning 51 today, Complex imagined what the Instagram of his airiness would look like. Take a look.
ALL RIGHT PEOPLE, before anyone goes and gets their panties up in a tight little bunch, let me just state that: YES, I agree with the rest of humanity in saying that I, too, believe that sex offenders can be the most awful, reprehensible, violent, and amoral criminals on the planet. That being said, keep in mind: one can be registered as a sex offender for crimes including: flashing your boobs in public, peeing in public, having consensual sex with a teenager (even if you were also underage at the time), or even taking naked selfies (source: businessinsider). My guess is that you just now realized that you, too, could be a registered sex offender. I’ll admit it. I could be one. I flashed my manboobs in public like 3 weeks ago. source: wildammo
The Sochi Olympics officially start tomorrow, but the city is far from ready to host the games. Journalists are blowing up #SochiProblems on Twitter, documenting the terrible living conditions that they and the athletes will have to put up with throughout their stay. Most of the reports are pretty funny, but you still have to feel kind of bad for these guys.
