She makes $1M selling WEIRD things on the internet


Rebekka Blue, aka Ana Dee, sells weird things on the internet. As far as your imagination can run wild, there's a good chance that the self proclaimed Professional Goddess sells in online. 

She claims to have made over $1 million dollars by selling things like ear wax, toe nails, feet scrapings, bathroom garbage, dirt from her floor, and much more. She's a major social media influencer now on Tik Tok, YouTube, and Instagram with millions of followers.

The saying that one person's trash is another's treasure, is quite literally true in this case.

Man sued for $10,000 over bad date


How much do you deserve for putting up with a bad date?

Michigan woman QaShontae Short filed a $10,000 lawsuit against Richard Jordan because their date caused her emotional distress. She claims that she's due for compensation because he stood her up on her late mother's birthday. 

She proceeded to take the Zoom court hearing call from the airport and get into a screaming argument with the judge over the definition of perjury. The judge, Herman Marable Jr did his best to explain the situation to Short but she refused to listen. She had not only filed a ridiculous lawsuit that appeared to have no merit, but she had done it with the wrong court. 

The judge was clear with Jordan that if he wanted the case dismissed he would need to file the appropriate motion, which he had not done to this point. He agreed to transfer the case where it belonged in circuit court, but not before putting Short on mute so that he could get a few words in. He awarded Jordan the filing fees because Short had filed with the wrong court and patiently tried to explain what the next steps were to her. Unfortunately, Ms. Short didn't realize she was on mute or look at her phone, and was talking the entire time. 

It remains to be seen what will happen with this case, but sadly for Jordan in appears to remain open for the time being. 

Should people be able to sue for bad dates? If someone catfishes your or maybe lies about their height a little, should you be due some compensation for the strife?

Why you are LAZY and ENTITLED working from home


Elon Musk recently sent an email to employees telling them that if they want to work from home they should find a new job. It's no secret that Musk hates the idea of remote work from home employees. Tesla has notably fired people that worked from home during the shelter in place mandates during the covid-19 pandemic. Clearly his views haven't softened on the idea that people can be productive at home. 

 I've been working from home in multiple roles for over 11 years and I have a very different view. I have found that there's more time to focus and I'm more productive when I work from home. There are way fewer distractions at home than going to an office, where people stop by your desk constantly to chat about the latest gossip and keep you from getting work done. That's not to mention the endless, useless meetings that you get pulled into. I work way more hours and get so much more done at home than I ever did or would at an office cubicle. 

Elon Musk is not the only CEO to be stuck in the dark ages with archaic mindsets about working from home, but he's certainly one of the most vocal public critics on the topic. 

He's a billionaire and has a blind following of minions that will agree with everything he says. Elon Musk has had undeniable success with his investments and companies, but does that mean he's right about everything by default? If there's one positive thing that's come out of the pandemic, it's that companies and people have realized that they can get more work done and have a better quality of life by doing their work at home. Not only that but corporations can save a ton of money on office leases by having their employees at home too, so it's really a win win for all parties. 

 There is a social aspect that many might find a negative. No more office birthday parties with sugary cake and gossip to get you through your work day. However, it's not like you can't find other avenues for social outlets. 

 What do you think? Do you work from home? Are people that do inherently lazy or do they get just as much, if not more work done? Are huge commercial office buildings a soon-to-be relic of the past or will they make a comeback?

What did Fred Savage do? Why was he fired from The Wonder Years?


News broke recently that Fred Savage was fired from The Wonder Years reboot for allegations of misconduct, where he was working as an executive producer and director. Savage has always been more or less the face of The Wonder Years brand, so he must have done something pretty serious to be removed from the show all together right?

This is far from the first accusation against Fred Savage for misconduct on production sets. Cast members like his on screen mother Alley Mills have come out to defend him in the past, but will they this time?

Is Savage just an overworked demanding director with an anger problem who has unreasonable expectations of those that work for him? Or is there something worse going on here?

Jim cheated on Pam with Cathy Simms - The Office US

 


In season 8 of The Office, Jim Halpert spent a month in Florida helping to launch the first brick and mortar Sabre store. Being away from Pam and under the influence of Stanley proved to bring more temptation than Jim was expecting. 

Jim's new desk mate, Cathy Simms had been harboring a huge crush on him for quite awhile. They hung out together the entire time. One night Cathy came to his room in her underwear claiming that her heater was broken asked if she could join the party. 

Jim let her in and then later kicked her out by making up an excuse about bed bugs. The question is why would a happily married man let her in to begin with? Why did she feel comfortable showing up to his room wearing barely anything. 

I propose that Jim and Cathy had been having an affair while in Florida, but were smart about avoiding the cameras. Jim overcompensated wildly, trying to hide even looking in Cathy's direction let alone sit next to her. This makes no sense as they had been sitting together throughout the team meetings. Cathy also admitted to the affair on camera, while Jim gaslighted her trying to convince us that she's just crazy. 

Was Cathy actually crazy or did something actually happen that Jim is trying to hide? The original script did actually call for Jim to cheat on Pam, but John Krasinski refused to film it. He felt it went too far and betrayed fans of The Office. Now we're left to wonder and read between the lines.

Would Tim have cheated on Dawn in the The Office UK? I have a hard time imagining that. 

Let's talk about what really happened with Jim and Cathy.
