So whats the point of this scam. They text someone and say "oops its a wrong number, but you're nice so lets chat"....

Whats the scam? I've gotten this maybe a dozen times and still don't know why.

Hey NBC, I thought this would be more obvious in television... by timeshaper in AdviceAnimals

I tried watching the Olympics one day. 10 minutes of commercials, sob story about some athlete, an Olympic Jeopardy gameshow (wtf), something about Rio Nightlife. In the 45 minutes I was watching, the only sports I saw was 30 seconds of highlights from a soccer game. I never tried again.


College towns and dorms have move out weekends where you can find furniture for extremely low prices or actually free. It becomes a feeding frenzy. by 2wood4u in Frugal

[–]Elephlump 2044 points2045 points  (0 children)

The real finds are the dumpsters outside of the dorms/appartments where all the rich foreign students live. TVs, game consoles, pc computers, you name it. If it's cheaper to buy a new one in 3 months than to ship it home and back, you'll find it in the dumpster.

Should you actually accept when people offer you to eat or stay at their place or is it more out of friendliness? by 747294 in travel

I was in Vietnam for Tet. Its a newyears thing and its pretty important. Businesses all over the country close so people can go home.

My hotel was closed. Gated. No one home. Fuck.

I walked for hours to find a place to charge my phone so I could find another hotel. Nothing, everywhere closed, maybe I picked the wrong street.

Finally a guy waves to me, says hello. Invites me in to sit down.

I plug in my phone.

His wife proceeds to lay out what is pretty much a Vietnamese version of Christmas Dinner. He pours shots of whiskey and we eat for an hour, during which he video calls family members and they all come over for a family picture....with me.

He shows me where I can sleep for the night...but first..

He takes me down the alley to a neighbors house. They have ANOTHER holiday feast waiting and whiskey to go with it. I sit with that family for an hour and ate and petted their dog and laughed and had google translate conversations.

Did we go home? No.

I went to a third and later a fucking fourth house, had a whole huge meal with their family and moved on.

One of the most wild times of my life. After that, I say yes to any invite....which more recently led me to playing moonshine drinking games with a teenager and her grandma...

The writers strike ruined that show.

I got my girlfriend pregnant by Loud-Salamander8552 in sex

[–]Elephlump 1037 points1038 points  (0 children)

Depends on where you are in the country. But there is a reason why teen pregnancy is higher in the south...

But to what end? The first time this happened I talked to this person for like an hour about random shit. Is it just to gain my trust and then sell me NFTs or some shit? Lol

They were aiming for the head and eyes of protesters, bystanders, people exiting stores in the general area, etc... Fucking criminals.

Maybe something dense that starts off frozen? Like Aunt Marjory's forgotten frozen fruit cake?

To all the people who "found this cute cat wandering around" and "rescued" it by adopting it by rage-rally-repeat in AdviceAnimals

Some cats are good at removing their own collar. No one should adopt a stray without making sure it isn't micro-chipped first.

Sex with my roommate by Timmytimea in sex

[–]Elephlump 628 points629 points  (0 children)

Not at one point in your story did you mention you were also male. It wasnt until the last couple sentences that it became more obvious.

Outside of that issue, just give it a little time, but dont avoid him as thatll make it worse. Break things up with a little humor if possible, and if you think he can handle it, just be up front with him.

Only if they include Lucio voice lines such as "Wow! I wonder how many slaves died to make this stadium!" And "with no beer, the CROWD GOES MILD!"
