Drunk Girls Get Surprised With Puppies & More!

I would like to start this off by asking how one goes by getting a job at Buzzfeed? Seriously. These videos are too much for me, they get to play with kittens and puppies, and try candy from around the world, they go on ghost hunting missions, it just seems like a jol all the time.

In their latest video they decided to give drunk girls puppies, and as you can imagine, there were tears. My favourite quote of the whole video is when one of the particularly emotional girls says “”I shouldn’t have drunk whiskey, i cant protect them.” Too funny. In all honesty though, i literally cried while watching this video… i mean, i wasn’t drunk, and i was only watching a video of other people getting to play with puppies. If they had gotten me drunk, i probably would’ve straight up stolen all of them and just walked out.

New Amazon Series Shows Us An Alternative Reality Where The Nazis Won

A brilliant new series is coming to a tv near us soon, hopefully (it’s been commissioned and released by Amazon, so i’m not sure how we could watch it here in South Africa). The entire series is based on a novel written by Philip K. Dick, and is set in a dystopian alternate history where the Nazis beat the Allied forces in World War 2.

The pilot debuted back in January, but it was only after the pilot aired that it was picked up for a full season, so the release date is November of this year. The very basics of the story are that the United States has been partitioned into three parts: The Japanese puppet state of the Pacific States of America, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains; a German puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States; and a neutral zone that acts as a buffer between the two areas, called the Rocky Mountain States.

Meet The Girl With The Longest Legs In America

Ex-Varsity Volleyball player turned swimwear model officially has the longest legs in the USA! Her name is Lauren Williams and her legs measure an insane 124.5 cm/49 inches, and she also happens to be a cool 6ft4.

She said: ‘It’s interesting to me that this is a title I now hold. Pretty regularly I have people comment on how tall I am or how longs my legs are. I don’t recall a time when I realised I had such long legs, it was just always something about me. Most of my friends and family members are very excited about my title – they are always commenting on how lucky I am.’

As with most crazy-tall people, it’s all in the genes – her father, mother and twin sisters are all 6ft or taller. She also wears a size 10 shoe… which makes my feet feel like fairy feet at size 6.

Guy Shaves Beard After 14 Years

Meet Mook, he has had his luscious beard for over 14 years – his kids have never seen him without one, and neither has his wife! In this video he surprises his family and friends one by one, and their reactions are adorable. The best is when his dad doesn’t even recognize him, and his daughter says “you look like a different daddy,” SO CUTE!! As a girl i will never truly understand how beards “work” and what that facial hair represents to some men… either way, it makes for a sweet video.

Warner Brothers releases Suicide Squad Trailer

Warner Bros have changed their minds, and decided to release a high quality version of the trailer/sizzle reel for Suicide Squad. The reel was originally shown during their “Hall H” presentation at Comic Con this past Saturday, but someone in the crowd recorded footage that was supposed to be solely for the people at the presentation, and then posted that crappy-quality version online.

Sue Kroll, the studio’s President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution said: “Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

Who Is South Africa’s Best Network?

 

I’ve been in Europe for about 3 weeks or so, and i thought that amongst all of the culture, history and exciting adventures, i would *at the very least* have excellent cellphone/data coverage to match. This is the “1st World” after all! I will say, that Ireland has the most amazing coverage and deals i have ever experienced in my life – but England, Belgium and the Netherlands leave a lot to be desired. Coverage is spotty, calls take forever to connect (even when you’re calling local numbers), and data is pretty damn expensive too. It honestly made me rethink our offering in South Africa.

I read some pretty interesting information recently about who is considered South Africa’s “Best Network”, and the answer doesn’t surprise me in the least – Vodacom. You might be wondering how this is judged… there are a few specific categories where the best performing network can be objectively selected, and Vodacom consistently came out on top.

Here are some of the categories where Vodacom took first prize: 

South Africa’s Fastest Mobile Network

South Africa’ s Best Mobile Internet Experience

South Africa’s Best Mobile Network for video downloads

South Africa’s Biggest Network with the most towers

100% Internet Coverage on all SA’s freeways

Network with fewest dropped calls

I realize that we still have a long way to go in terms of a lot of things in South Africa, mobile included, but Vodacom has embarked on a mission to “change the game” locally. This means that, in the long run, Vodacom is trying to forge the way forward when it comes to mobile networks! I feel like their new Change The Game campaign means that they’re committed to offering the best across a multitude of elements.

Let’s raise a glass to the best South African network – Vodacom!

Excited About The Entourage Movie? Don’t Be.

The hype for the Entourage movie has been off the charts – when it was announced, i couldn’t log onto Twitter/Facebook without seeing a post about it. It seemed like everyone was fired up about it. I honestly don’t have an opinion on the existance of this movie because i never actually watched the tv series properly… i caught a couple of episodes here and there, but never really got super into it. I totally skipped the first few seasons and only partially watched the last few.

The movie has done terribly at the box office, and i’m starting to wonder if this reviewer has a point. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but after what he’s said, i’m not sure i want to. This is one of the best rants I’ve heard, you can actually see the passionate hate in his eyes.

Here’s one of my favourite quotes from the video:

“In terms of its gender politics, human centipede is more sensitive.”
