“Patrick Mahomes, Megachurch Leaders And Celebrities Boosted Obscure Crypto Company Claiming To Be Worth $15 Billion”- This is one of thought delightful articles about an insane but not at all surprising massive grift— sprinkled with weird.
“Philadelphia Cream Cheese Is Clapping Back Against NYC's Bagel Tax With A Limited-Time Offering”- I can’t tell if this is a joke or not.
“Bamboozle, N.J.’s most famous music festival, plagued by fan uproar, refund demands”- Fyre Fest but make it Jersey!
''A TikToker who enraged people with videos of her rejecting food and being kicked out of restaurants admitted they're all fake''- I feel immediately suspicious (or sus, as the kids say) when someone describes themselves with "people that know me know I'm the nicest person ever."
''JPMorgan Says Frank’s Javice Moved Millions to a Shell Company''- Because OF COURSE she did.
''It’s a Toddler’s Party. How About a $75,000 Budget?''- This makes me so mad, oh my goodness.
''‘Overemployed’ Hustlers Exploit ChatGPT To Take On Even More Full-Time Jobs''- Can we even call them hustlers at that point if they’re just outsourcing most of their work to AI?
''A Tiny Number of Shoplifters Commit Thousands of New York City Thefts''- 327 people were collectively (re)arrested 6,000 times?!?!
''They’re Over Being Real''- Real life is unfortunately generally pretty mundane so it doesn’t make for dynamic social content.
''The End of Faking It in Silicon Valley''- I’m certain that shady startup CEOs will continue being a thing.
''FTX’s Bankruptcy Lawyers: ‘The Dumpster Fire Is Out’''- Oh yeah, so it’s all good to come on back to the dumpster! P.S. Shaq was finally served for the FTX lawsuit.
''Why Barbie’s Best Friend Midge Was Once Removed From Shelves''- She was certainly one of the more interesting Barbies.
''People On TikTok Are Warning Others Not To Wear Aquaphor In The Sun. We Asked Experts If Lip Sunburns Are A Thing.''- I am very thankful to TikTok for teaching me a ton of things I probably should have already known. Like how to hold up taco shells with a fork.
''The Suspected Military Documents Leaker Was Caught Partly Because He Searched The Word “Leak”''- …this whole story is concerning for our country.
''Fake Drakes And Counterfeit Kanyes: The Internet Is Suddenly Full Of AI-Generated Hip-Hop''- The speed of AI’s increasing sophistication feels a little concerning.
“One in four brides wear David’s Bridal to their wedding. Now, it’s filing for bankruptcy”- And Party City… which feels slightly less surprising.
''CEO Who Took Home Nearly $5M Last Year Tells Employees Hoping for a Bonus: 'Leave Pity City'''- Something tells me they’re going to have trouble retaining and hiring employees.
''How an American couple’s dream of ex-pat Paris life became a grande nightmare''- This is such a strange story.
