People Dunk On Terribly Designed Loft Apartment

It's a rite of passage of moving into anywhere new. You unpack everything, get settled in and then realize that there are several annoying features to your new home that the real estate agents conveniently swept under the carpet. Whether you're barely scraping rent or money is not an object, all of us have suffered from impractical interiors at some point. 

Even when you are lucky enough to find somewhere that could be your dream home, there are going to be issues that you have to learn to live with. This was something brought to the attention of Twitter user @Cupidhrt, who shared a picture of a loft apartment as a show of appreciation for the design. People were quick to reply and point out that while it might be showy, the architecture was more than a little hard to live in. Cooking right underneath the sleeping area and an apparent lack of storage space were pointed out as downsides.

Whatever you might think of living without walls, many Twitter users here make some very valid points. The joke's on them, though. Most of us probably couldn't afford to live alone in a swanky urban loft anyway.

Twitter Users Share Silly & Small Reasons They Stopped Seeing Someone

We've talked a lot about red flags recently, but sometimes when you're just seeing someone, you notice something small that you just can't get past. Could be the way they type. Maybe their hygienic habits. Or maybe something a lot simpler. Twitter user @inkedbyharms asked their followers to share their own dumb reasons for "dubbing" people, and shared their own: he ordered a small coffee. The rest of the reasons aren't quite as petty, but they're definitely entertaining.

Unconventional Upcycled Chair Horrifies The Internet

Home is where the heart is, and there are few things that allow us to express ourselves better than interior design. Unfortunately, our decorative dreams can often be too expensive and impractical to turn into reality. For most of us, this means we're stuck with the same lackluster art prints and wilting houseplants. However, those who are more enterprising try to find alternative ways to spruce up their space. The only thing is that they may not be to everyone's taste. 

This has been the case for @brookewalding, whose recent video of her redecorating an old office chair has been criticized for its unconventional aesthetics. Covering the bare frame with insulation foam and then painting the whole thing a delicate baby pink, the end result has been compared to monstrosities as far ranging as Robocop villains to the bisexual Ikea coach. Perhaps more important than its appearance, though, is that the end result looks wildly uncomfortable to sit on. Getting creative DIY isn't always a bad thing, but when you've got a hopeless case of TikTok tip brain it often can be.

Extremely Specific Tweets From Masters Of Detail

It's easy to assume that tweetswould veer towards nebulous or vague sentiments. After all, there's a pretty serious character limit. But somehow it seems that there are some people who manage to get very Tolkien-esque in their detailed descriptions. From strange and out-of-left-field sentiments, to oddly creative and imaginative musings, these tweets really set themselves apart. And we like it that way.

Insufferable Gatekeepers Who Should Let People Live

Before the advent of the Internet, gatekeeping (the activity of controlling, and usually limiting, general access to something) felt pretty rare. Unless you went to high school with extremely annoying people, you could wear a band t-shirt without being quizzed on the artist's catalogue and obscure trivia. Activities such as playing video games, or even shaking hands were free for everyone to enjoy without issue. Unless, you know, your handshakes are like wet fish. 

Now that anyone and everyone is able to spout their toxic takes on social media, it's become pretty normal for gatekeepers to try to alienate people who really just want to enjoy things. We're not sure if these people just have fragile egos or are just nasty. Either way, they should probably seek help. It can't be healthy for their blood pressure to get so upset about what other people are doing.

Generous Chef Cooks Nutritious Meals For A Whole Town

Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them wear aprons!

Turkish chef and well-known YouTuber Burak Özdemir took to the streets to feed a whole town for Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha. Known to YouTube as CZN Burak, the smiley chef has made a habit of giving to others through his delicious food. Last year for Muharram, Burak cooked a beautiful and nutritious feast for his community. Doesn't get any more wholesome than that. Sure, his videos get a lot of likes, but we'd rather not look at these viral videos through a cynical lens. Some people are just plain kind.

People Are Having Nightmares Over This Hospital Therapy Horse

Serious illness is one of the most physically and emotionally challenging experiences an individual can go through. As a result, many sick people will resort to almost any methods to alleviate some of the pain. In recent years, this has allowed for the surge in popularity of therapy animals, who supposedly bring comfort through their calming presence. These have ranged from the obvious (dogs) to the decidedly unconventional (parrots and even alligators). If there's one thing that they tend to have in common, it's that you couldn't ride them in the Kentucky Derby. 

The way things were going, it was inevitable that something was going to come along to blow this similarity out the water. This has come in the form of Peyo, the horse who visits terminal hospital patients in Calais. Highlighted by the Twitter account All Things Interesting, a lot of people were less than convinced that a behooved, half ton animal provided anyone with much comfort in their dying moments. 

Despite Peyo's reported success in his calling, many were more concerned about his bodily functions , or whether his patients would be convinced they were having some kind of demented dying vision. The cynicism of the internet didn't ruin the horse's reputation completely, with some defending his abilities to soothe and therapize. However, if most others are anything to go by, there are a significant number of deceased French people who think the Grim Reaper eats sugar cubes.

Fred Durst Has Undergone A Rebrand And People Are Trying To Place The Vibe

Spare a thought for the figureheads of nu-metal. It was a hard job being the laughing stock of 90s music and balancing that with a career in professional douchebaggery. As if to add insult to injury, now they also have to endure being the soundtrack to endless TikTok teens in remixes that offend the ears even more than their original artistry. It's no wonder that some of them seem to be looking for a new start, not least Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. Ahead of the band's summer tour, Durst deleted all of his Instagram posts and replaced them with a single selfie, debuting a radical new look. 

The combination of his silver hair, handlebar moustache and wistful gaze came as a shock to those used to him presenting a more youthful, aggressive persona. It prompted an avalanche of memes as everybody tried to place his startling rebrand. He may still be doing it all for the nookie, but he's also got mortgage repayments to worry about as well, OK?

Dude Finds Giant Centipede In Daughter's Room & Horrifies People With the Footage

Growing up in Brooklyn I was always terrified of house centipedes. And why wouldn't I be? The revoltingly speedy unibrow bugs were all over the place. They'd find their way onto my arm at slumber parties, inspiring blood-curdling screams more indicative of a murder than a creepy crawly.  I'd find them in my shoes.  My mother would tell me they're "good bugs" because they eat the "bad bugs," but to me they were the stuff of literal  nightmares. Eventually my fear subsided, after having to live in a dank and dark East Village basement where they were a daily sighting. I'd almost forgotten about the critters - until Twitter user @VickGlaze horrified the internet with a video that features a far more sinister-looking centipede. 

The alarmingly large centipede in Vick's video is known by a few names. Some call them Texas redheaded centipedes, others the Giant Desert Centipede. Whatever its called, it's freaking terrifying. And this scared father was not afraid to admit it. In a thread, he details all the measures he took to protect his home, and the terror the creature has struck in his heart. The responses (mostly in solidarity) are almost as entertaining as the video and accompanying story. As for me? I'm feeling pretty damn lucky that I grew up in New York and not in Austin, Texas, where these massive venomous critters roam.

Workers Fantasize About Funemployment in Relatable Thread

In 2020, the U.S. unemployment rate skyrocketed to 14.8% due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Although the country is slowly recovering, many are still struggling to find reliable work. But is it the 'work' itself that civilians desire or is it self-determination and financial security? Of course it's the latter. The stress that comes with unemployment is hellish when you don't have a safety net, but for those fortunate enough to be in the position to say 'hell no' to work for an extended period of time, the experience can be absolutely joyous.

Comedian @_RobertSchultz often tweets about the painfully relatable annoyances of working full time and his recent quip about 'gaps in the resume' hit home for a lot of people. Spending time away from work while maintaining financial freedom can open one's life up to an array of new possibilities and everyone should get the opportunity to experience an extended stress-free break. Let's get those 'f*ck it' funds started!

Twitter Users Debate the Mechanics of Vampire Sex, Hilarity Ensues

Vampires make people horny. We're not making a blanket statement here, but it's a pretty undeniable fact. For hundreds of years, humans have eagerly consumed media regarding the scary and sensual bloodsuckers. And while we can't claim to be experts in the field of vampire content, it sure does seem like the world's been extra interested in the raunchier side of these undead creatures. Over the last 20 years, starting with Underworld, the spooky subjects of European folklore have been thriving on both the silver screen and our black mirrors. 

Some of the television shows to come out of this period were almost shockingly sexual. Yeah, we're talking about True Blood. None of my friends could deny the appeal of Alexander Skarsgard's oft-naked Eric Northman. There was The Vampire Diaries.  And then there was Twilight, a series of movies based on the saga by Stephanie Meyer. These movies were less horny and more cringey, but boy, did they involve some sexual tension (and eventually, yes, some vampire boning). Despite the breadth of lusty content, there's very little mention in any of these stories regarding exactly how vampire sex works. And until a couple days ago, we'd never really questioned it. Until we saw this tweet.

How vampire penis get hard with no blood flow?

— yea my name is Susie (@REALlilDebbie) July 25, 2021

We weren't the only people intrigued and disgusted by @REALlilDebbie's blunt question. The tweet went viral, inspiring self-described vampire scholars, Twilight fans, and jokesters to respond with theories, TikToks, "scientific" explanations, and, of course, some amusing reactions. While the thread is arguably hysterical, we're more impressed by the sheer volume of knowledge dropped in the replies. We actually learned something today. That counts for something. Definitely going to be telling people that vampire literature becomes popular during sexually repressed times. Maybe our pandemic dry spells are to blame for all the Twilight discourse on TikTok. Whatever the case, we're enjoying the nerdy ride.

People Are Revealing The Everyday Activities They Think Should Be An Olympic Sport

While the Olympics pride themselves on celebrating the peak of global athletic achievement, the kind of athletes it accepts has become an increasingly broad church over the years. From skateboarding to synchronized swimming, the games is no stranger to including more offbeat sports in its prestigious competition. 

However, there's always room for improvement and even a little recognition for those who put Olympian amounts of effort into the less sporting tasks in their life. When ESPN posed the question of what feels like an Olympic sport but isn't one, numerous people were ready with convincing answers. Call it participation trophy millennial pandering, but lots of things in life are hard; it's only right that it gets acknowledged some of the time. Although few of us will be sporting greats, we're all skilled in our own way. At least, that's what we tell ourselves.

15+ Times Clever Cropping Transformed Boomer Posts For the Better

Impact Font. Minions. Allusions to "better times" before the internet, when people spent their time rolling in mud instead of "rotting their brains." Hateful or crazed "memes" that spew pseudoscience and tear people down. Where can you find all of this great stuff? Why, on a boomer's Facebook page, of course. 

While boomer-hating has become quite boring, there's no denying that some older people use the internet in a way that's simultaneously toxic, corny, and hilarious. And though we appreciate the cringe at face value, there's a Twitter account that takes that entertaining trash and mines it into some serious content gold. @NoContextBoomers (aka Cropped Boomer Images) artfully crops those grainy memes your Aunt Linda shares in the family group chat and turns them into eerie, cursed, and weirdly funny gems that get an awful lot of attention on Twitter. It's a genius way of repurposing tired kinds of posts into content that "extremely online" senses of humor can appreciate. We've put together some of their latest efforts, but we dare you to look to your family's social media accounts and try it yourself. The results are often hysterical.
