‘I wouldn’t have even seen that omg’: Customer quits using DoorDash, Uber Eats after finding something unusual in drink

A TikTok user has vowed to never use food delivery apps again after posting a video of something truly disgusting in a drink she ordered via DoorDash.


Justice Alito’s full-on ‘wife guy’ defense of upside-down flag instantly becomes iconic meme

That “my-wife-made-me-do-it” excuse was quickly mocked online by posters who riffed on the idea that Alito, a conservative hardliner on the court who helped overturn Roe v. Wade, would ever make such a modern argument in favor of women’s rights.


What’s old is new again. TikTok users are falling in love with a flirting technique from the past that has found new life with a new generation.


What is this large ‘anomaly’ that experts are tracking in the ocean? Is it a leviathan?

Is there a leviathan in the ocean? Experts were recently baffled by the appearance of “a giant cluster of waves over 80 feet high and spanning 2,000 miles” that appeared off the western coast of Africa.

👋 Before you go

Recently, “Walmart hacks” have become incredibly popular online. From price glitches to secret discounts, many have shared all sorts of tips and tricks to get the lowest price while shopping at the store.

While these discounts may excite shoppers, employees aren’t always big fans of such significant price dips. When observing these discounts, employees have repeatedly accused shoppers of somehow marking the price down themselves, such as this shopper who tried to buy furniture and another who attempted to purchase discount diapers.

Now, another internet user is sharing their story of being accosted while trying to take advantage of a discount at Walmart.
