At least this store sign will tell you the bitter truth about ‘No Man’s Sky’

15 days ago

Sad, but true.

Oh, No Man’s Sky. You showed so much promise.

The hotly-anticipated game looked incredible with its infinite universe and seemingly revolutionary gameplay. But its players have found it to be a few cents short of a dollar. A Happy Meal with no toy. In other words, boring and disappointing.

So, as players fume over a game that fails to live up to expectations, you’d expect game stores to do what they can to sell off all stock of No Man’s Sky quickly, before the little Johnnies of the world realise that it isn’t good.

But Australian/New Zealand electronics retailer JB Hi-Fi won’t lie to you, as demonstrated by this hilarious sign posted on the /r/gaming subreddit by hotsqueakybiscuits, calling No Man’s Sky “the best refund simulator of 2016.”

“10/10 would refund again,” the sign adds.

JB Hi-Fi are well known for their cheeky store displays, such as this sarcastic “games for girls” shelf put up a few months back, with many more available documented at this website, JB Hi-Fi Reviews.

Now, where did that receipt go?

Japan’s Cup Noodles Museum is both educational and tasty

20 days ago

When Kylie Jenner Snpachatted about her fancy instant ramen, the internet exploded.

So when a whole museum dedicated to Cup Noodles opens…we get very, very jealous.

Cup Noodles Museum, located in Yokohama, Japan, allows for many picture-taking opportunities.

The museum is not only delicious, but it’s educational, too it teaches visitors about the history of instant ramen and its inventor, Momofuku Ando.

But let’s be real, the best part is probably getting your own custom Cup Noodles made.

Tituss Burgess’ gloriously scathing Yelp review will give you life

2 months, 3 days ago

Image: netflix

If you’ve ever had moving woes, feel vindicated in the fact that there are heroes out there who are fighting back.

Tituss Burgess, “Emmy Nominated Actor for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, currently streaming on Netflix,” wrote the perfect one-star review for a Brooklyn moving company July 13.

The company in question, Franks Express, which not only neglected to do their job, but also asked for a Yelp review before it was done, left Burgess extremely disappointed to say the very least.

Image: Yelp

“My name is Tituss Burgess. Im an Emmy Nominated Actor for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt currently streaming on Netflix. That’s besides the point. But watch it,” Burgess’ review begins instantly proving credibility because there can’t be a person on the planet who doesn’t love Tituss.

The rest of the review details how things quickly escalated with Franks Express. Here is a timeline of events:

  • 11 a.m.: Burgess calls to arrange a pick up of his couch. The representative quotes that they will be at his home at 1 p.m.

  • 1 p.m.: No movers.

  • 1:30 p.m.: Still no movers. Burgess calls the company again to check on the arrival, the representative tells him that he is late and will give him a discount in exchange for a good Yelp review. Burgess, understandably, asks that the job be completed before he does that, and the representative tells him, “no review no show.”Texting back and forth continues for 45 minutes. During this time, the representative calls Burgess a nasty, anti-gay slur.

“It completely threw my entire day….I’m going to post this to Twitter, to my Instagram, to my Facebook. You messed with the wrong Queen,” Burgess wrote.

He perfectly recapped his scathing review on Instagram.

And shared both the review and the saved text messages to Twitter. Warning for anyone out there who is sensitive to anti-LGBT language, one of the messages contains an anti-gay slur.

The above tweet also includes a telephone number that does not match the Franks Express Yelp page, however, when we Google searched the number, it brought up another moving company that has several numbers and several different names, and has many reviews that users have flagged as a scam. It is not clear whether Franks Express is affiliated with this company.

Franks Express has responded to Burgess on Yelp, claiming they had nothing to do with the incident and that Burgess never called them. However, it’s clear from the text messages that Burgess dealt with some unprofessional mover via phone.

At the moment, Yelp is monitoring the Franks Express page “for content related to media reports.”

We are with you Tituss. Stay strong.

Fag activists are hurling a giant LGBTQ dance party right outside Mike Pence’s house

2 months, 16 days ago

Image: jean vandevanter white/ werkforpeace

Chevy Chase, the quiet D.C. neighborhood soon to be home to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, is about to get truly, really loud.

Activists behind WerkForPeace and #DisruptJ20 have joined together to plan a huge queer dancing party outside of Pence’s new home this Wednesday, Jan. 18 th. Queer dancers and their allies will follow a dancing route through Pence’s new neighborhood, hoping to get as close as possible to his home.

“We have planned a route to dancing through Pence’s neighborhood and celebrate queerness, leaving behind traces of rainbow and glitter that he is bound to see and never forget, ” Firas Nasr, a representative from WerkForPeace, told Mashable in an email. “Our most important point is to celebrate our love for one another and our diversity through dance and self-expression. He will know we are there! “

Image: Jean van devanter White/ werkforpeace

LGBTQ activists are deeply concerned about the vice president-elect’s recordon issues pertaining to the gay community. In the past, Pence expressed support for conversion therapy, a dangerous practise currently opposed by the American Medical Association.

Trump himself has promised to sign the First Amendment Defense Act,which would allow business, landowners and even hospitals to turn away LGBTQ people if their needs violate the owners’ religious beliefs.

WerkForPeace wants to make its opposition known( and, in a welcome growth, actually have fun at the same period ). The group, coordinated after the Pulse nightclub massacre, has schemed similar dancings in the past. And members are expecting a large turnout for the Pence protest 😛 TAGEND

“Over 2,000 people have expressed interest, and virtually 500 people have[ RSVPd] to come out and werrrkkk! Yas queen! ” Nasr told Mashable .

Pence’s new neighborhood hasn’t exactly welcomed him with open arms. Previously, Pence’s neighbours plastered the region with lesbian flags and signs that read “This Neighborhood Trusts Women.” Pence has also expressed support for defunding Schemed Parenthood and overruling Roe V. Wade.

“We choose to bring the dance floor to the streets and assert that #WeAreHere and #WeWillDance. No longer will we remain silent about intolerance in our country, especially when it is occupying one of the highest positions in government. Instead, we choose to stand together and #werkforpeace, ” Nasr told Mashable .
