Brilliant Loopholes People Exploited For Years

We love to see ordinary people exploiting glitches in the system, flawed discount deals, lazy employers, and any big institution that profits from usually doing the exploiting. When you spend most of your life rising and grinding every damn day to pay the bills, even the smallest win can feel like striking gold, like figuring out how to secure a free weekly lunch for the next couple years. 

We've got a bunch of great examples of clever people taking advantage of loopholes thanks to a hot recent thread from r/AskReddit.

TikTok Landlord Gets Called Out For False Advertising

Hustle culture is the absolute worst. It has a cringeworthy attitude, glamorizes dangerous overwork and demonizes anyone who might want to enjoy their life without striving to become a millionaire by the age of 30. 

Most depressing of all, its zenith is the often shady world of property investment. The advent of TikTok has ensured that there's an influencer for pretty much everything these days, and landlords have grasped the opportunity with enthusiasm. The platform is home to countless real estate aficionados, showing off their wealth and providing frequently dubious advice on how others can achieve the same. 

It has drawn wider attention recently due to one of the more prominent TikTok landlords. User @tatlondono made a video claiming that her ownership of a Porsche and a Range Rover was thanks to the ownership of three apartments, whose exterior featured in the TikTok.

However, once the video made its way to Twitter it was revealed that all was not what it seemed and the building she had filmed in front of was not even owned by her. In a sector where mismanagement and exploitation are rife, it's more than a little suspicious to be using blatant falsehoods. Unfortunately, it's also not likely to stop the #aspirational content train.

Bitcoin Memes For Crazed Crypto Hodlers

It appears that memes are taking over the economy. If you've been keeping up with the GameStop saga and the rise of DOGE, by now you're probably well aware that bitcoin reached its all-time high of $48k early this morning. While bitcoin has been powering through its ascent for over a decade now and is certainly no meme stock, we can't deny that this forceful crypto rally may at least be loosely connected to the recent Reddit short squeeze meme schemes. Elon Musk has not-so-subtly been hyping both dogecoin and bitcoin for months—mysteriously putting 'bitcoin' into his Twitter bio, retweeting ridiculous pro-dogecoin memes, claiming that dogecoin is 'the people's crypto'—even Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Doge) got in on the hype. But it all came to a head when Tesla announced its purchase of $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin on Monday. It didn't take long for the price of bitcoin to skyrocket to the moon. 

But how much further can bitcoin go? As more and more institutions adopt bitcoin as a legitimate form of currency, the plebs are wanting in, but many are wondering if they're too late. In retrospect, one could say there was never a bad time to buy bitcoin. Remember when one coin cost $9k a year ago? To be honest, I personally thought I was too late then. Now look at me. But obviously hindsight is clear as day, and the future of bitcoin is still foggy for those of us who need blockchain technology to be fully demystified before we can 'YOLO' our life-savings into cryptocurrency. If there's one thing we do know for sure, it's that the inherently viral nature of memes has shown to be a useful tool in pumping crypto. Just as r/WallStreetBets rallied to pump the GME short squeeze, subreddits like r/SatoshiStreetBets have been hyping altcoins like DOGE in order to raise the price floor. Some brush off dogecoin as a bubble or pyramid scheme that only functions as a pump and dump rather than a viable currency, but skeptics said the same thing about bitcoin in 2009, so who knows?

We can't say what the future holds for bitcoin, but we can offer what we know best—memes. We've got some amusing bitcoin memes and tweets both old and fresh for anyone who's either curious about crpyto for the first time or obsessive about checking those candlesticks every two minutes.

Do you remember the last time you had McDonald's ice cream? Neither can we. A big reason for that is because their ice cream machine is always broken. This is such a widespread issue that it's become a meme, there's a real-time internet map of broken McDonald's machines, and now, thanks to Johnny Harris, there's an impressively comprehensive investigative documentary that gets to the bottom of this fast food phenomenon.

Dogecoin Memes For Diamond-Handed HODLers

While we may not be witnessing an upset at the level of the GameStop fiasco, it would seem this is a special time for Dogecoin. It's now ranked as the fifth-most valuable cryptocurrency - and boasts an impressive market cap of $52 billion dollars. That's almost 10 billion more than Barclays Bank. The madness has convinced many a Redditor and retail investor that Dogecoin is "going to the moon." Though our hopes aren't terribly high that we are going to be made millionaires, we do love that Dogecoin has made a lot of people a lot richer. Which means they can do things like pay off their credit card bills, their student loans. Maybe even a down payment on a house. These memes, some of which are a bit corny and possibly idealistic, are for everyone HODLing the shiba token. We love to see people winnin'.

In the real world, most trade policies and financial systems are built by economists or businessmen or dudes on r/wallstreetbets who have some sort of training or expertise in that area. In movies like Star Wars, Harry Potter, and John Wick, it's all designed by people who mostly have training in explosions and expertise in booby scenes. And… it shows. Today, "Doctor" Jordan Breeding and Your Brain On Cracked return to make sense of the movie monies.

Direct Deposit Memes Reveal Twitter's Hilarious Stimulus Plans

It's been less than a week since people in the US learned that they would, in fact, be receiving a $1,400 stimulus payment. While many progressive critics have claimed it's far from enough,the general consensus from much of the public is: Hell yeah. And nobody is celebrating quite as loud as Twitter users, who have (obviously) taken the direct deposit and turned it into an extremely successful meme. Upon news of the payments, comedy-minded netizens began tweeting their big plans for the money - and most of them involve delusions of grandeur and a whole lot of plays on words. We've included what we believe to be the most amusing stimulus goals, but Twitter is absolutely brimming with these jokes. Happy scrolling.

Robinhood Banned The Trading Of Reddit's Hottest Stocks But They Can't Stop The Memes

If you've been on the internet or turned on the news at all over the past few days, we're pretty sure that you've heard about the movement of Reddit retail investors (r/wallstreetbets) that's been f*cking up the hedge fund game. Well, it seems investment apps such as Robinhood, Webull and E-Trade want this fun to be over. The apps have decided to ban the trading of hot, shorted stocks such as Gamestop, AMC, and Blackberry - a move that's been incredibly controversial, and feels, to retail investors, like a huge betrayal. It's a betrayal that's already inspired class action lawsuits and criticism from politicians on both sides of the aisle. Despite the hubbub and anxiety, memes about this important moment in history are still flying around Reddit. Hopefully things will start looking up for the retail investors and brokerages stop treating bailed-out hedge funds with kid gloves that they do not deserve.

23 Twitter Users Share What They Once Thought Were Indicators Of Wealth

When I was a kid I thought my peers with Barbie dolls were rich. And people with air conditioners. And I wasn't the only child with a unique idea of what indicated that someone had money. This thread from @cpoliticditto proves that most kids had their own special ideas of wealth:

"My wife grew up thinking that having water/ice dispensers IN THE FRIDGE DOOR was a life goal.  I grew up thinking if you had a basketball hoop with a clear/plexiglass backboard, you were rich.  What are some things you thought were indicators of wealth when you were a kid?" 

The responses are a nice mix of amusing and depressing. While some kids thought that having an attic or a wide variety of cereal meant someone was privileged, other kids thought hot dog buns were a luxury. We've included some of our favorite responses, but there are tons more over at the thread.
