    A TikToker has showed off their incredibly regrettable back tattoo featuring an ex-boyfriend's name — which they had inked just one week before the couple broke up.  Ashlyn Grace, 21, went viral last month after admitting they got a boyfriend's name tattooed on their back — which became a very awkward reminder of him after they broke up just a week later.  Responding to nudging from viewers eager to see the ill-advised ink, Ashlyn posted a follow-up video in which they pulled up the back of their shirt and revealed the name 'Alexander' written in all caps vertically down their spine. Yet despite suggestions for how to fix it or cover it up, Ashlyn, who uses they/them pronouns, claimed to have no regrets over the tat and still likes it over a year later.  Wow!

    CONSIDERING how the average wedding in the UK is around £30,000, it's pretty common for guests to give the newlyweds a cheque over a present. That said, one bride has been slammed online after she tried to trick her family into paying for her £10k wedding - and then uninviting them if they refused. 2The bride called her family members the day before the wedding to ask for cashCredit: Getty The woman was shamed on the Reddit forum Bridezilla/Groomzilla by one of her brother's friends. Giving them the fake names Karen and Matt, the user explained: "[The bride] calls her brother 2 days before her wedding. "Says to him "I put deposits down for the hall, the photographer, the caterer, the flowers and the DJ. But I didn't know I had to pay in full on my wedding day, I thought I could pay later. "Do you have $15,000 [£10,800] I could borrow?" 2People on Reddit slammed the 'awful' bride After telling her he didn't have any money to offer, a bridesmaid called him later to tell him...
    Age is nothing but a number, but the prime of your life might be later than you think. Youth may be wasted on the young, but apparently life is fullest in your late thirties. In a new poll of 2,000 Americans, participants said that they "peaked" (or would peak) at age 37, news agency South West News Service (SWNS) reports. Though the teenage and twenty-something years traditionally get all the hype, 34% of respondents predicted their prime will be at 46, or older. While tomorrow is a mystery, a hopeful two in three people polled believe their best years are yet to come. In a new poll of 2,000 Americans, participants said that they "peaked" (or would peak) at age 37.

    toggle audio on and off change volume download audio WTOP's Jason Fraley reflects on one year of 'Tiger King' (Part 1) Hey, all you cool cats and kittens! Saturday marks the one-year anniversary of “Tiger King” premiering on Netflix. The bonkers true-crime docuseries got many of us through the early part of the pandemic, binge-watching the mullet-wearing, meth-addicted polygamist Joe Exotic, who formerly operated the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma. A year later, you might be wondering: Where are all those crazy characters today? Joe Exotic Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for the alleged murder-for-hire plot against rival Carole Baskin. He was convicted of 17 violations related to wildlife trafficking. He reportedly filed a $94 million lawsuit seeking civil damages from the government. Last March, Cardi B tweeted that she was setting up a GoFundMe campaign for his release and many folks waited with bated breath to see if former President Donald Trump would pardon him in his final hours. The pardon never came. Carole Baskin Carole Baskin, owner...
    Today, StreamElements and its partner, analytics company Rainmaker.gg, have put out the February issue of their “State of the Stream” report. It’s something of a fascinating document because, as the end of the pandemic draws near, it’s another piece of evidence that live-streaming platforms were one of the winners of the crisis. (You know, assuming there can be winners to a global mass death event.) The biggest finding in this month’s report is that, in terms of hours watched, both Twitch and Facebook Gaming are up around 80 percent year over year. To be slightly more specific: Twitch has grown by 82 percent, while Facebook Gaming grew by 79 percent. For Twitch, that translates to more than 1.8 billion hours of watch time in February; Facebook Gaming, on the other hand, cleared 400 million hours. (For reference: in March 2020, as the pandemic was beginning, Twitch cleared 1.1 billion watch hours. And last April, Facebook Gaming had crossed 291 million hours watched.) Those numbers are both massive and, I think, durable: both figures are actually a decrease from...
    Monday marked the 79th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which precipitated the entry of the United States into World War II. "It is a day that nobody will ever forget, in my memory or anyone who was there," Lou Conter told "The Story" Monday. The 99-year-old Conter, one of the last two living survivors of the sinking of the USS Arizona, has returned to Hawaii annually to commemorate the attack, but was prevented from doing so this year by the coronavirus pandemic. "Everyone on the ship served with distinction, because they were highly trained, and I believe that's one of the greatest acts that American sailors and officers of the Navy, the Army, the Air Force at the time could do," he told host Martha MacCallum. "December 7th is a date that will live in infamy."

    Fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden and his wife Lindsay Mills are expecting their first child together, the couple announced Wednesday. The news was first shared by Mills in a tweet, in which the acrobat and blogger also posted an image, showing a silhouette of Snowden crouching down and kissing her baby bump. ‘A long time in the making: our greatest collaboration is coming soon,’ the 35-year-old wrote. She later posted for a second time, referring to the baby as ‘citizenfive,’ an allusion to the award-winning 2014 documentary Citizenfour, which chronicled how Snowden came to lift the lid on the NSA spying scandal. Snowden later retweeted the post, writing in response: ‘You made me believe in happy endings. I love you, darlin.’ Fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden and his wife Lindsay Mills are expecting their first child together, the couple announced Wednesday Followers of the couple were quick to congratulate them on the news, with the occasional joke also shared. 'I wonder if Google already knew the gender?' one user jestfully asked.  'Congrats! I'm sure Ed...
    Dear Moneyist, A friend of mine is getting married next month with a handful of guests, mainly family and close friends. The wedding itself was put off because of the coronavirus pandemic, but they are having a large party next year. I was only invited to the party next year. Do I send a gift? If so, do I give my gift now or later? Friend Who Just Wants to Do the Right Thing The Moneyist: ‘I’m astounded that I have NOT received my payment’: When will I receive my stimulus check? Dear Do the Right Thing, Send it now. Send it later. Send it now. I hope that helps. Any other time you need advice, you know where to find me! Apologies for being glib.

Who would have thought that a pandemic would have so rudely interrupted our work, life and even our weddings? Send them a card saying...
    KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — A year later, Samah still wakes up terrified during the night. She sees her rapists’ faces in her sleep. She can’t bear to look at her own body. She never goes to the streets of downtown Khartoum. Those streets were once a place of optimism and freedom for her. The 28-year-old and hundreds of other Sudanese men and women were massed in a protest camp there, chanting for the military to end its grip on power. But the place became a horror on June 3, 2019, when paramilitary forces stormed the camp, shooting, beating — and gang-raping. At least 60 women, including Samah, were raped over the course of a few hours that day in the streets around the protest square, according to several activist groups. “There has been this psychological pain that will never end, that can’t be described in words,” Samah told The Associated Press. A year later, victims of that day are still waiting for justice. Identifying and prosecuting those behind the violence — in which at least 87 protesters were...
    KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — Two or three times a week, Mayada goes to visit her baby daughter at the foster home. Sometimes, she breastfeeds her if she has milk, or she just sits and lulls the 3-month-old to sleep. She left Marwa at the home because she’s too poor and ill to care for her, she said. Not because she doesn’t love her — not because the little girl is a legacy of a horrific day a year ago in the streets of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. “Sometimes I feel like I love her more than my other children,” said the 22-year-old. “She has no guilt. It’s me who feels guilty.” Mayada was among dozens of women raped by Sudanese security forces over the course of a few hours on June 3, 2019. In a rampage that day, fighters from the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces and other troops tore apart a sit-in camp in Khartoum where protesters had been demanding for weeks that the military give up power. At least 87 people were killed, with activists putting the number...
