    It’s true. There’s a guy I used to follow on Twitter years ago who was an excellent shitposter. Can’t even remember his name, his username was some unpronounceable jumble of letters.

    Fell down a flight of stairs and died at 30. Complete bullshit.

    Some bangers:

    “Guns don’t kill people, nothing kills people, people can’t die”.

    “Get your fucking hands off of me, I’m a thought leader!”

    “Every morning my boss shoots me in the head with a Smith & Wesson snub nose revolver, piercing my brain casing and killing me instantly, but do I stop going to work? No. Because I hope to do the same to employees of my own some day.”

    I can’t even remember his first name, but I can remember these.

    Or you get yourself the 100-Year Plan from WordPress. It only costs $38,000. Your online legacy will live on. You could even leave exact instructions on how to be remembered.

    I’m joking, but the WordPress thing is not an Onion.

      First time I read about it and even more surprised that for 38,000$ they don’t even talk details. They talk about videos, audio, photos, etc. but how much storage space?

      Update: Ok looks like it’s based on the business/creator plan … so 50GB. There isn’t even a bulk discount because the creator plan is 25$/month, so just 30,000$ per 100 years 🤔 The entire “deal” is just nuts.

        Ikr? I wonder if anyone has made the deal. The urgency of this product is suited for wealthy fellows, maybe as a birthday present for the son?

        Celebrities maybe, would not be adverse to the idea.

      They say “we hope people renew”

      So another 100 years? 200 years of hosting? Amazing.

      Mansa Musa. He was on a Hajj to Mecca and making it rain on everyone he passed. It devalued gold so much he had to collect some of the way back.

      I think about this story everytime I hear someone say gold never devalues it’s worth. It’s probably the only time, but still.

      • How busy you were 📅
      • How stressed you were 😩
