Man Tries To Control Girlfriend's Money

Sounds like there could be quite a bit of selfish entitlement at play in this relationship, as it has been described. The guy offered to fund his girlfriend's living requirements, so that she could work on paying off her debt as soon as possible. However, she decided to take this and basically use those privileges to continue living in whatever way suited her fancy. 

And most importantly, not in the way that she agreed upon with her partner. Money is a tricky thing, and it looks like there's one person who is potentially leeching off the other person, through being strategically deceptive. Maybe this relationship isn't meant to be. Who knows?

Pro Stock-Pickers Vs. Astrologist, Beauty Bloggers, And Cows

Twitter user @RobinWigg shared a viral thread about one very bizarre Norwegian TV program. We're talking about a situation where pro stock-pickers were pitted against an astrologist, beauty bloggers, and literal defecating cows. If that isn't the peak of entertainment I don't know what is? Naturally, the professionals were unsettled by their competition. Can't imagine how unsettled they were when they learned that Gullros was a total stock-picking wizard.

Tumblr User's Livable Wage Comment Gets Disproved

Nothing melts our icy hearts like a fact checker getting fact checked themselves. When it comes to online squabbles, people have a tendency to approach the situations like bulls in a china shop, and often throw out all kinds of BS, cause they feel that overwhelming desire to be the most right person in the room. And sometimes that BS is misleading information they haven't even bothered to verify before trying to pass it off as the ultimate truth.
