After six long years Adele is back on top, After announcing her new single in the next 24 hours after the release of her new single “Easy on Me” she set the new record for the most streams in a single day.
As well as it being the most streamed song in one day it was also the most first-day Alexa song requests in Amazon Music history.
This single is from her highly anticipated album “30” which is set to be released on Nov. 19.Her previous album, “25,” which was released in 2015, had the highest first week sales in U.S. album chart history – and included the hit “Hello” which became the fastest video to reach 1 billion views on YouTube.
While Spotify did not divulge a precise figure of how many people listened on release day,“Easy on Me” stole the crown from K-pop boy band BTS which had held the top spot for most streams in one day for their single “Butter,” released in May 2021. According to Billboard, Spotify currently reaches 365 million monthly active users.
There you have it the Queen is back and better than ever and I for one can’t wait for more.
So, You’ve got an extra $2000 that you want to throw away in a digital trash can rather than a physical. Enter NFT’s. You’ve been good, why not treat yourself to some metadata for a poorly rendered piece of “art”. But what’s this, you refused to pull out your net profit in crypto six months ago when it peaked and now find yourself in a constant battle with the refresh page button over your diminutive decimal point value? Not to worry my friend, even you can still get yourself some NFTs.
So what exactly is an NFT anyway? NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens are more or less one-of-one digital “art” pieces that belong to a blockchain. What does that mean to you? Essentially you can be extra and own the data behind this artwork or media for bragging rights… I suppose. Once you buy an NFT it’s yours, no one else can buy that same blockchain unless you decide to sell it. NFTs can come in a multitude of media sources including, but not limited to, PNG files, GIFs, Videos, Jpeg files, etc.
But here’s the thing right… while it may be a weird niche flex to own the metadata and blockchain behind some little 8-bit sprite some dude on the internet likely created for next to nothing, at the end of the day you bought it because it looks cool. To clarify everything that is about to follow, in regards to the images and other media referenced, it is implied these will NOT be used for commercial or monetary use. The theoretical use of these images will be purely for the viewer’s own enjoyment.
Okay legal disclaimer aside, you buy NFTs ultimately because you like how they look. Now think back to your first iPod touch. You downloaded that generic wallpaper app and went to town downloading and screen-shoting every dope looking design under the sun. To that vein, what is honestly stopping you from taking a picture or downloading the media file of an NFT? If strictly for your own enjoyment why not? You don’t plan on selling it so that aspect is out the window. It’s digital artwork that can been seen on the vast, readily available resource that is the internet. If the reason you want to buy an NFT is to have some little animated computer generated image to yourself, take a picture man. No need to shell out $2,000 for something that is restricted to a digital platform. Hell, Print it out for all I care. Below is an example of a PNG file I have created… yeah I made it just to cover any other bases here… feel free to take a picture or download it to your liking. For all intensive purposes this is an NFT, I am the only one who possesses the coding and metadata file this was made on.
On second thought, If you’d like to pay me $450 for that, I’m willing to talk.

When the Titanic sank in 1912, it shocked the world. The limits of human innovation were cruelly displayed with the destruction of such a technically remarkable ship.
A conspiracy theory that has crept up online in recent years asks the question, most recently on Reddit: Was it actually the Titanic that sank?
We know. It sounds bonkers. But bear with us.
Everyone seems to agree on one fact: A ship really did sink in the icy waters of the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912, and approximately 1,500 passengers aboard that ship died. The conspiracy simply suggests the Titanic wasn’t actually the technical marvel the ship’s parent company, the White Star Line, had promised.
Do you think the Titanic actually sank?
Of course. James Cameron wouldn’t lie to us like that or are you not convinced?
Rather, the White Star Line swapped ships for the voyage from Southampton to New York and the ship billed as the top-of-the-line Titanic was actually an older ship: the Olympic.
What’s more, the conspiracy theory suggests, the entire crash was an insurance scam gone wrong.
J.P. Morgan and the Heyday of Big Ships
The British White Star Line had stiff competition in England and across the globe. Locally, it had a fierce rivalry with the Cunard Steamship Company, Ltd., which in 1906-07 had sent on its maiden voyage the world’s then-largest passenger ships, the Lusitania and the Mauretania.
To compete with the Lusitania and its mate, White Star Line entered into a giant ship war. The company was no stranger to such battles, but Cunard’s Lusitania and Mauretania had out-gunned White Star’s so-called “Big Four” ships in terms of top speed. This time around, the company had some extra backing.
The Olympic and Titanic being built side-by-side.
In 1902, White Star had become a property owned by the International Mercantile Marine Co. (IMM), a holding company bankrolled by famed financier J.P Morgan. With Morgan’s permission, White Star chairman J. Bruce Ismay began work on what came to be known as Olympic-class ships. If they couldn’t match the Lusitania’s speed, Olympic-class ships would outclass Cunard ships: they’d be even bigger, and more luxurious. Three ships were commissioned: the Olympic, the Titanic, and the Britannic.
The Mandela Effect, Named after the mass confusion surround the death of Nelson Mandela, is the name given to the phenomenon of the mass remembrances of events that seemingly never happened. The theory began with the aforementioned Nelson Mandela who passed away in 2013 despite a hefty majority of people remembering him dying in an African prison in the 1980s. Since then the community surrounding the Mandela Effect has grown rapidly as more residuals are discovered and more theories arise as to just how this all can possibly be happening. Before we dive into some of those theories, let’s break down some of the most iconic and recent Mandela Effects that may affect you.
The Berenstain Bears
No, you didn’t read that wrong and no, that’s not a typo. The spark that lit the fuse is largely attributed to these childhood storybook bears. Most often remembered as the “Berenstein Bears” even the most detailed search through the archives will show these bears have always been named the “Berenstain Bears”. While some residuals of old TV Guides and VHS tapes have surfaced, no source that can be traced back to the production or company responsible for these books or shows ever show them being spelt with an “e”.
… A box of chocolates
Everybody and their mother is familiar with the cultural classic that is Forest Gump. Even for those who haven’t seen it (Do you exist?) there is one quote from the film that has surpassed pop-culture. Go ahead and say it to yourself, It’s the catchphrase, The Slogan, The repetend line through out the film. Dis you say “Life Is like a box of chocolates”? If so, You’d be wrong. I know what you’re thinking, how could this be can hear Tom Hanks say it plain as day. I urge you to go back and watch that clip on YouTube, listen closely and hear that iconic line… “Life WAS like a box of chocolates”.
Who’s the Fairest of them all?
Yet another pop culture classic, Snow White. Admit it fellas, you know the quite too. Ya know, that famous quote, “Magic Mirror on the Wall, Who’s the fairest of them all?” That’s right, No “Mirror, Mirror” in this reality. One of the absolute most baffling examples as that exact line has been seen quoted in Shrek as well as inspired its own spinoff of the same name. Yet in the Disney animated Snow White film “Mirror, Mirror” is never spoken. Stranger still, seemingly in the other languages the movie is translated in, that line DOES appear. Residual?
Down The Rabbit Hole
There is an ever-growing list of Mandela Effects that seemingly keep getting wilder and wilder. If none of these have made you question this reality, I encourage you to check out the following video on some of the most bazar Mandela Effects.
So How Can This Be?
As of now there are two major theories as the the reasoning behind the Mandela Effect phenomenon.
The Timeline/Paradox Theory
The first theory revolves around the possibility of a paradox involving the timeline we know to be our reality. And yes, before you jump to it, this theory well precedes Loki and the Multiverse. The theory goes that the world (our world that we have perceived in this reality) has actually ended, and not just once. However rather than physically ending the reality we perceive has merged into another reality causing a paradox, one where we retain the memories from our initial reality despite the subtle differences making these non-existent in the current one. Three notable points in history have been linked to this theory as three different points we have merged with three different realities. The First paradox event is said to be Y2K, originally thought to be “The end of the world” Year 0 would wipe all computer based intelligence ability to comprehend the actual year causing a reset. The second paradox shift is though to be the year 2012 when the Mayan Calendar predicted the end of the world. Lastly and most recently is the year 2020 which was considered to be the coming of days due to the unforeseeable and outrageous events the year hosted. While we can look back at these three fixed points as nothing more than hoaxes and false predictions, oddly enough there seems to be a spike in Mandela Effects following each of these years.
Simulated Reality Theory
Simulated Reality theory is the theory that it is very possible and even extremely likely that we currently live inside a computer generated simulation. The crux of the theory relies on the fact it would be next to impossible to answer this question without first being able to create a simulated reality of our own that perfectly mirrored our reality. However by doing so we also run the equal possibility of either creating the first simulated reality or being the last reality to do so. The Mandela Effect comes into play as the response to a “patch” of sorts. While a new reality or update to our current one could easily overwrite the code for a company like “Febreeze” so that the code reads it was actually always spelled “Febreze”, rewriting the code of near sentient, growing AI as a whole would be a lot more challenging. This would lead to peoples “false memories”. Memories of something that actually existed and was witnessed however was overwritten so that it seemingly never existed inside the current reality.
This is just scratching the surface of the Mandela Effect theory. This ever expanding and ever growing phenomenon is one of my favorite things to discuss and monitor. I highly encourage anyone unfamiliar to look into some of the documented effects as I can almost assure you one of them will strike a chord. Let me know what your favorite Mandela Effects are and which ones sent you over the edge below, then be sure to check out more articles like this one right here!
Facebook shut themselves down so they could clean out their network a day after the whistle blower came out on 60 minutes with all of her actual evidence. They made sure to do this before a subpoena could be served and they would be required to maintain the integrity of the evidence in light of impending and threatening litigation. They shut down their entire operations themselves and they cleared out their network the reason it’s all so fishy is it went down simultaneously and came back up simultaneously. During the blackout they said practically nothing to the public other than “sorry for the inconvenience we are working on it” and more evidence on facebook shutting themselves down is no group took credit for the incidence there is no record of a DDoS attack.
Distributed Network Attacks are often referred to as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. … The DDoS attack will send multiple requests to the attacked web resource – with the aim of exceeding the website’s capacity to handle multiple requests… and prevent the website from functioning correctly.
Please watch the playlist for the full 60 minutes
With the evidence given it sheds light on sextrafficking, hate speech, propaganda, and profit over anything else.
Facebook profits off the division and hate and during the shutdown Facebook stocks dropped while Mark Zuckerberg looses 6 billion dollars, and everyone is just happy to have their social media back up just be careful what you’re sharing, you never know who is watching.
It’s a shame that Facebook had to cover it up and delete everything rather than own up and face the facts it’s coming sooner than later.
Personally I believe that every mobile game comes and goes popularity, like i’m pretty sure we all still have minecraft mobile hidden somewhere on our phones just in case we feel like doing a little crafting every once in a while but I don’t think Pokémon Go will ever die.
In January 2021, Pokémon GO had approximately 827,000 daily active uses via iPhone in the United States. Released in July 2016, the game has remained popular and is still regularly ranked among the leading mobile games worldwide.
There are many reasons I believe that this game will never go away putting it simply it’s an easy game and it gives you something to do if you’re really bored for example if you are itching to do something you can always look where the nearest raid is or walk to multiple pokestops and get your exercise in as well.
Anyway Pokémon GO isn’t going anywhere i’m still playing.
Who will be positioned for a World Title match in the land of All Elite moving forward into 2022?
For anyone new to the All Elite Wrestling craze, welcome to the biggest revolution in professional wrestling since WCW closed their doors in 2001. All Elite Wrestling has been making needle moving shockwaves in the professional wrestling industry over the past two years and especially in the ladder few months of 2021. One question that constantly looms in the horizon and excites long time fans is, who’s next to be positioned for that World Title spot? Naturally there are a couple hot names right off that bat that are nearly guaranteed to step up, and because of this we’re not taking the low hanging fruit. That being said CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and Hangman Page will NOT be included in this list. Today we’re focusing on hot young talent that is seemingly on the rise and could find themselves number one contenders for the New Big Gold Belt come 2022.
Let’s face it, Maxwell Jacob Friedman has been on everyone’s list of future champions for a long, long time now. MJF has had the run of his career in mid 2021 finding himself the focal point of the “Labors of Jericho” storyline which revolved around MJF’s attempt to retire the “Demo God”. While MJF can certainly talk the talk he can also go in the ring. In fact, the higher ups at AEW seem to be so high on MJF even president Tony Khan claimed in the AEW Before The Bell documentary that MJF is so good he “no longer considers him young talent” even though he is one of the youngest guys on the roster. This one seems to be a no brainer and seems like only a matter of time before the “Salt of The Earth” is holding the richest prize in AEW.
Brian Pillman Jr.
Coincidentally enough, the man currently locked in one of the most ruthless feuds going today with the aforementioned MJF, Brian Pillman Jr. has all the makings of becoming a contender for the AEW Championship. Pillman Jr. was a major get for All Elite back in July 2021. Since then the second generation loose cannon has been tearing up the tag division with Varsity Blondes partner, Griff Garrison, until beginning his red hot feud with MJF in his home town of Cincinnati. While Pillman Jr. has proven his in ring capability over the past year time and time again, his verbal skills may have fallen a little behind. Since engaging in this current program however, Pillman has been able to work the stick like never before in his career. On top of being one of the best between the ropes, Pillman has that second generation stigma and is over like hell as the underdog baby face with the fans that it only makes sense we seem him facing off against a monster heel for the AEW title in the near future.
Undeniably one of the absolute hottest sensations in professional wrestling today, Jungle Boy Jack Perry is commonplace among dream match talks for young talent and veterans alike. CM Punk. Adam Cole, and Chris Jericho have all discussed wanting to tear it up with Jungle Boy and for good reason. With the backing from the fans as well as management (see Baltimora’s Tarzan Boy for proof) Jungle Boy is the picture perfect underdog babyface, sorry Brian. While he has made serious waves already with colleagues and legends as part of the Jurassic Express, we have to acknowledge the team never makes the cut when future dream matches are discussed, only the son of legendary Luke Perry.
Debuting as the surprise entrant in The Casino Battle Royal in 2020, Sydal was a much welcome addition to the AEW family. A man who fans have been clamoring to see on a big stage once again for many years now, Sydal has seemingly slipped under the radar for the majority of 2021. Competing primarily on Dark episodes and in tag team outings, Sydal has not missed a step in the ring and appears to be in better condition than ever. If AEW plans to keep fresh faces and interesting never before seen matches moving forward, Sydal is a phenomenal choice for a challenger/champion excelling both as a face or heel. While Matt has seemingly found a temporary home on Dark for the time being he does boast a 16-6 record for 2021 and seems to be rising the ranks of All Elite Wrestling,
These are just a few of the potential roster members who could be positioned for great things come the 2022 AEW year. Like previously stated names such as Adam Cole, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Hangman Page and more are almost dead set on an AEW Title program in the near future as well. Who do you believe could be the next AEW breakout star, let us know below and be sure to check out more articles just like this one right here! Personally, Pres10 Vance is showing great promise, but maybe not for 2022.
No one knows exactly why a cat was in attendance at the Miami-Appalachian State game, but it is known that he stole the attention of every fan in the stadium. The cat had a nice view of game with an upper deck seat but he decided ten minutes into the game he might try for a seat closer to the action on the field.
As he slipped under the apron/ barrier of the upper deck he had underestimated the distance he’d soon be falling from, as he dangled for minute struggling to keeps his paws on the apron he slowly lost his grip and started his plummet to the depths below.
Everyone in attendance was watching very closely as this tragedy was unfolding when a good sumaritan down below used his american flag that he brings to all of the games as a makeshift net to catch the cat falling from above this man saved at least on of the cats nine lives.
Once the coach was informed about the incident he only had this to say “I don’t know anything about that or what was going on, but I’ll tell you — if the cat can help our red-zone offense, I’ll see if we can get it a scholarship”
So will we find out if the cat was a stray probably not but we do know that if he starts practicing on the betterment of his red-zone offense he has a shot a a scholarship to play with the team he so desperately wanted a better seat to watch.
There are many theories as to what might be there like obviously aliens that’s the most talked about right?
The place: Area 51, a remote patch of desert some 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas, next to a salt flat at the foot of a mountain. This military outpost — and what’s happened inside it — is so top-secret that its very existence was disputed until 2013.
In short, Area 51 was created during the Cold War to help America peek in on the Soviet Union. But, because of its clandestine beginnings and cutting-edge tech, many Americans came to associate the base with extraterrestrial ships and little green men.
Here’s what we do know about Area 51: Today, the U.S. Air Force uses the 38,400-acre patch of desert as a training site. Sometimes called the Nevada Test and Training Range, the base is located next to a salt flat called Groom Lake and is home to some of the longest runways in the world.
The closest town is Rachel, Nevada, population 54. The airspace above the base is extremely off-limits. And the land around it is peppered with warning signs to would-be trespassers.
My theory is it’s actually the exit to the simulation why do you think it’s so heavily guarded and so top secret I have heard a little about this theory in conversation as well so I am not the only one who thinks this, however I am not completely set on this theory I could be easily swayed to a different mindset, but I’m not too sure it’s aliens.
All I’m saying is that if it isn’t something extremely out of pocket then why is it such a secret?
