“Breadcrumbing” Has Replaced Ghosting as the New Way to Torture the People You’re Dating

GHOSTING has been the top way to TORTURE the people you’re dating for a few years now. That’s when, suddenly, you cut off all communication with them, stop returning their messages, and basically disappear . . . like a ghost.

Well, apparently there’s a new dating torture method that’s becoming more and more common in the Tinder era. It’s called “breadcrumbing.”

That’s where you meet someone online and string them along FOREVER with messages . . . even though you have no intention of ever actually meeting up with them or dating them.

The video game “Pokemon Go” is a legit sensation now. Which is pretty impressive, since it’s less than a week old, its servers keep crashing, and it requires walking. Here’s the latest news . . .

  1.  “Pokemon Go” already has more active users every day than some MAJOR apps, including Tinder, Snapchat, and Instagram. And it’s about to pass Twitter.
  2.  People are already figuring out ways to beat the game’s physical exercise requirement. There are reports of people using DRONES and CEILING FANS to keep their phones moving, to get Pokemon creatures to appear.
  3.  Apparently “Pokemon Go” is also a good way to find dates. There are dozens of stories popping up on social media about people meeting while they’re playing, and Craigslist’s Missed Connections section is FULL of messages from players.
  4.  And finally, it turns out when you install “Pokemon Go”, you give it FULL access to your Google account, including all your emails and documents. You can turn that off by going to security.google.com and clicking “Connected Apps and Sites.”

A Study Finds the Best Pose to Help You Attract People in Online Dating

A Study Finds the Best Pose to Help You Attract People in Online Dating

Whether or not someone swipes right on you on Tinder usually comes down to a matter of SECONDS. They glance at your picture, make an instant judgment, and swipe. So you’d better make that picture count.

A new study out of Princeton University found the best pose for getting dates. And the trick is . . . to spread yourself out.

The researchers found that people who had pictures where they held their arms out to the sides or put their feet on a desk and leaned back with their hands behind their head had more success than people who crossed their arms or kept their arms in tight.

And the difference is significant: People who stretched themselves out in their photos got almost TWICE as many messages as people who closed themselves off.

The researchers say that basically, you’re just like a peacock. Quote, “In the animal world, taking up more space and maximizing presence is used as a signal for attracting a mate.

“By exerting dominance, they’re trying to signal, ‘I am able to do things, I have a space, I have access to resources.”

Someone posted a list of the top ten things you shouldn’t own after you turn 30.

Here’s what they came up with . . .

  1.  Unframed posters.
  2.  Trophies from high school.
  3.  Too much IKEA furniture. One or two things is okay, but not your entire place.
  4.  A collection of shot glasses.
  5.  A lava lamp.
  6.  A huge shelf full of DVDs. And the same goes for CDs.
  7.  Picture frames with inspirational messages on them, like “Live, love, laugh.” One or two are okay, but not 20.
  8.  A beanbag chair.
  9.  Glow-in-the-dark stars that go on your ceiling, unless they’re in your kid’s bedroom.
  10.  Fake plants. By the time you’re 30, you should be able to keep a REAL plant alive.

A Guy in Dallas Makes $10,000 a Month Mailing Potatoes With Messages on Them

A Guy in Dallas Makes $10,000 a Month Mailing Potatoes With Messages on Them

Mailing Potatoes

In the Internet age, you really CAN make money doing anything . . . no matter how stupid it sounds. And hoooo boy, does this sound stupid.

There’s a 24-year-old dude in Dallas, Texas named Alex Craig, and he came up with an idea earlier this year. He’d start a business where he’d write messages on POTATOES, and mail them to people.

You just go to PotatoParcel.com, tell him what you want the message to be, and who to send the potato to. Then he writes the message with a Sharpie, puts the potato in a manila envelope, and mails it. That’s it.

He started it back in May, and posted about it on Reddit.com. The idea got some attention because it was so dumb . . . and now he’s making $10,000 a MONTH.

It costs $7.99 for a medium potato and $9.99 for a large potato. Your message can be up to 100 characters on the medium potato, and 140 on the large, and it’s sent anonymously.
