These days it seems impossible to go at least 24 hours without someone telling you to try ‘this new method’ or ‘this great new product that will blow your mind’. What makes this matter even worse is celebrities constantly advertising products trying to prove to you that you definitely need this product in order to look better and be healthier. Even though sometimes new methods have really positive results for your well-being, we shouldn’t believe everything we are told to try, and Anne Hathaway definitely proved that to us.
Everyone knows actress Anne Hathaway
She is one of the world’s highest paid actresses and has received multiple awards including a Golden Globe, a British Academy Film Award, an Academy Award, and a Primetime Emmy Award. Despite all of these incredible achievements, you might also know her as ‘the woman who starred in the Princess Diaries’.
Recently, she visited the Ellen DeGeneres show and decided to share a recent discovery
In her interview, Anne explained that during the holidays she took a road trip with her family and while traveling they found a cute second-hand book store where she found a book called “Citrus Healing”. The point of the book was to show you all the ways you could incorporate citrus fruits into your daily life. According to Anne, citrus can improve your life in many ways, it’s good for you health, you can use it for cleaning, but what amazed her the most was that you can uses citruses for meditation practices.
She then presented to the audience a technique called the “Clementime”
The technique begins by peeling a clementine, then putting it in your mouth and breathing through it, also you have to make these weird monster-like sounds. Anne guaranteed this type of meditation really makes you feel better.
After Anne explained the idea behind the “Clementime” everyone in the audience tried it
Citruses, in fact, do have a lot of beneficial uses, for example, they are very popular in aromatherapy, can reduce kidney stones, as well as blood pressure, and there’s no doubt they are the greatest source of Vitamin C. All these great benefits aside, breathing through a clementine won’t really do anything for your health.
While everyone was practicing their “Clementine” Anne explained that she made the whole thing up
Everyone in the audience started laughing after they understood they had been pranked in front of millions of people watching. Anne also added that one of her 2019 resolutions was to use your her fame to prank as many people as she can, and she definitely succeeded.
Anne later explained that the main thing she wantsed people to take from the experiment was “Do not put something in your mouth just because a celebrity tells you to”
In today’s society, many people tend to buy and use products advertised by celebrities, especially on their social media. So, with this type of promoting getting more popular, it is important to be cautious.
Back in 2016, a management company called Nielson did research to find out what generations trust what type of advertisements the most. In their research, they found that celebrity endorsements resonate more strongly with Generation Z and Millennials.
What this means is that younger generations are easier to be fooled by what celebrities promote to them. We often think that the advertised product is the reason a certain celebrity looks good, but it usually is never the case. So just like Anne said, remember “do not put something in your mouth just because a celebrity tells you to.”

Long flights can be boring, even for the pilots themselves. One recently qualified pilot from Adelaide, Australia was testing out a single propeller plane’s new engine this Tuesday and the trip got so dull, he decided to reveal his true feelings for all of those watching. The pilot for Flight Training Adelaide, flew out of South Australia’s Parafield Airport after he was given the assignment to run the aircraft’s engine at a specific power setting for two hours. As the plane got closer to Port Broughton, northwest of Adelaide in South Australia, he wrote the words ‘I’m bored’ on his tracking device, and apparently, not only that. Upon closer inspection, the note revealed something a bit more cheeky – two small phallic-like symbols stood proudly below the words. Sadly, the phrase, which took dozens of kilometers to spell out, was not visible from the ground, only on the tracking device.
Pine Pienaar, the director of Flight Training Adelaide, told Australian media that the flight school didn’t condone the pilot’s actions. According to him, “apparently he got bored. Young instructors, what can you do?” Pienaar added.
The 1970s saw the founding of Apple Computer, Inc., the resignation of President Nixon, and… a lot of his-and-hers matching outfits that would get ridiculed to shreds in the street today. There are only so many belted tank tops and leopard onesies a person can tolerate, and the 70s pushed the boundaries of this limit, for sure.
Newfoundlands are known for the massive size and large coats but if you take a closer look you will discover they are just gentle giants. Out of the large dog breeds Newfoundlands top the chart as the 5th largest in the world standing at between 27-30 inches tall and weighing as much as 150 pounds. Add to their height the thick double coat that covers them, they appear even larger. The breed, as the name suggests, comes from the Canadian island of Newfoundland. Fisherman in the area needed dogs who could aid them onboard and with their natural ability to swim due to their partially webbed feet, Newfoundlands were a natural choice. The dogs kept warm by their fur, were strong enough to save a grown man from drowning. This kind of loyalty has made them ideal pets to their families, who, as you will see from this list, have had to make a little extra room in their homes.
Isn’t it one of the most annoying things to snap a picture of a beautiful moment, in a gorgeous location, only for it to be ruined by strangers who just happened to pose at the same spot as you? Well, at least these days we don’t have to wait a week to develop pictures to find out that the result is disappointing. Still, quite irritating right? And while modern technology offers quite a handful of solutions for such an issue, not all of us possess the skill (or money) to get those problems resolved.
That’s why some of us try to seek help from the more talented on the internet. Unfortunately, most of the time the results are far from our expectations. A similar situation happened to an American DJ and music producer, Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr., better known as Diplo, when he posted one of his pictures on Instagram.
The photo posted on February 19, with a caption that read “Couldn’t get rid of these dudes behind me so please pretend they are not there and this picture is perfect” instantly attracted attention, gathering over 200k likes from Diplo’s 5 million followers.
As Diplo passively complained about the people in his picture, his friend, a fellow musician, John Mayer, came to his rescue. Mayer apparently photoshopped all the people out the background and sent the picture to Diplo, although he kept a watermark on it and jokingly demanded $400 for its removal. The DJ, however, wasn’t about to throw any money away and posted the photo as it was. And then… the rest followed.
In the following hours, Diplo posted even more edits of the same photo to his Instagram story, with increasing levels of hilarity. And people watching the situation unfold were having the time of their lives!
Diplo and John Mayer are both professional musicians, so it’s not hard to see that this exchange between them is nothing more than just a good laugh. Both men are definitely aware of each other, as not only did they both date singer Katy Perry in the past, but also are, reportedly, working on a collaboration.
You would have to live in a completely different universe to not be aware of the Harry Potter phenomenon. Even if you weren’t one of those diehard fans who anticipated every book release, saving up pennies or making your birthday wishes very apparent to your parents, you still have either witnessed the hype or at least watched the movies, right?
But the recent years could be regarded as a great proof that the Harry Potter series wasn’t just a crazy fad that died out once the movies were done. With new Fantastic Beasts movies still rolling out and attracting crowds to the theaters, Potterheads big and small still remind the world that they exist. And as magical memes still land, it’s no wonder that the jokes keep coming up from various corners of the internet.
One of such was started by an American author L.L. McKinney who decided to write down a series of tweets, focusing on how Muggle (human) and wizard cultures would clash. “A while ago there was a hashtag I participated in called #YAwithSoul that explored famous YA plots and characters but through the cultural lens of being Black” McKinney told Bored Panda. She went on to elaborate that the inspiration for the tweets came from imagining herself in the shoes of a Hogwarts student.
According to J.K. Rowling, Muggles are people who have no magical abilities and are born into a non-magical family. The American equivalent to a muggle is called a No-Maj. Basically, everyday mortals excluded from the magical world. However, a person born into a non-magical family can end up having magical powers making them a muggle-born wizard. That is exactly when the two cultures could clash as someone who experienced a Muggle world for most of their childhood would be thrown into the universe of magic, spells, and wizards.
L.L. McKinney took a humorous take on what her experiences would be in Hogwarts, the magic school in Scotland. She decided to clash the seemingly advanced magical culture and habits and how unnecessarily complicated they actually are.
Although writing funny tweets might be one of McKinney’s strong suits, her true passion lies in writing. “I recently announced the highly anticipated sequel A DREAM SO DARK as well as the news that Lionsgate has optioned the series for a TV show” she revealed.
While McKinney’s hypothetical experiences seem like a far-fetched shot at what could actually happen in Hogwarts, Muggle-born wizards do actually exist within Rowling’s universe. Some of the most notable examples would be Harry’s mom Lily Potter as well as one of the most iconic characters from the series, an exceptionally bright witch named Hermione Granger. However, in the series, their experiences aren’t as hilarious as McKinney’s posts, since Muggle-borns faced prejudice and prosecution in the series.
Sometimes, it’s not about where you are but rather who you’re with. A Japanese photographer who goes by the name of Nyankichi Rojiupa has found a group of stray cats who have turned a street with drain pipe holes into their playground, and his images perfectly show just how much fun these felines are having.
“I casually stumbled upon these strays and now spend all of my weekends with them,” Rojiupa told Bored Panda. And even though the photographer doesn’t have any cats of his own, he’s befriended quite a few of them. “I’ve managed to earn their trust to the point where they allow me to play together.”
Their specialty is hopping in and out of drain pipe holes, striking the cutest poses. And when these adorable furballs aren’t busy doing PAWkour, they let Rojiupa pet them.
However, the photographer said that every now and then somebody’s starts raising concerns about the friendship he shares with these critters. According to him, some speculate that his photos might attract those who might harm the cats. “The cats live on private, protected property,” Rojiupa assured us.
