You know you’re taking your wedding too seriously when you start paying six figures to change the WEATHER. That’s some North Korea-style supervillain stuff right there.
But it IS an option now . . . if you’ve got a ton of money to waste.
There’s a company in the U.K. called Oliver’s Travels, and they’re offering a new service where they’ll DESTROY the clouds over your wedding . . . so you can have perfect sunny weather.
The service starts at about $150,000, and here’s how it works: 24 hours before the wedding they fly PLANES through the clouds . . . drop a chemical called silver iodide in them . . . and makes the clouds burst into rain.
By the next day, the rain will be dried up and you’ll have blue skies. And they GUARANTEE their service will work . . . but for $150,000, they better.
They only offer it at some popular wedding spots in France right now, but plan on expanding if it becomes popular. There’s no word on whether anyone’s actually purchased the service so far . . . or whether it’s even LEGAL.
The average person looks down at their phone up to 150 times a day . . . and we’re getting to the point where now, our bodies are FIGHTING BACK.
A study just found that we’re developing all sorts of unattractive side effects from always looking down at our phones.
Constantly bending your neck leads to sagging skin . . . drooping jowls . . . and wrinkles at the bottom of your neck that shouldn’t show up until you’re much, much older.
A dermatologist out of London who helped on the study says, quote, “Neck skin starts off finer . . . [so] it wrinkles more readily and the fat of the neck may sag.”
There are all sorts of creams and stuff you can buy to help fight the effects of staring at your phone . . . or, you know, you could just NOT stare down at it so much.
On Saturday, a couple named Steven and Makenzie Schultz went to a new restaurant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for their anniversary, and got TERRIBLE service. It’s not clear how old they are. From the photo we saw online we’re guessing early 30s.
They haven’t said the name of the place. But they waited 20 minutes for water, 40 minutes for an appetizer, and over an HOUR for their entrees. Meanwhile, their waiter was spending most of his time at other tables.
For the average person, that would mean one thing . . . he’s getting a bad tip. But instead of getting angry, Makenzie noticed he was the ONLY waiter . . . had TWELVE tables . . . AND was doubling as the bartender.
Steven and Makenzie both used to be servers, and now they own a restaurant called BBQ This. So they knew how INSANE that is. And when their check finally came, they talked it over, and decided to leave him a really GOOD tip.
Their bill was $67, so they left a HUNDRED BUCKS . . . that’s 150%. They also wrote a message. Quote: “We’ve both been in your shoes. Paying it forward.”
They posted a photo of the receipt on Facebook, and asked people to think about the CONTEXT of a situation before blaming someone. It’s already gotten over 1.5 MILLION likes. It turns out another waiter had called in sick at the last minute.
