We shouldn’t have to put up with strangers asking us for nudes, but sadly, it’s something many people have to deal with.
But while most people simply press the *block* button, one woman thought she’d have a little fun with the random guy asking her for nudes – and no, that didn’t entail actually sending any.
Twitter user @saucynatt shared a screenshot of the messages sent between her and a person asking for nudes.
She’d been asked to send naked photos to him – but @saucynatt wasn’t having any of it. Instead, she decided to prank him – by responding with: ‘Attachment: 1 Image’ – the message that shows up on… Read the full story

There are so many bad things happening in the world that it can tough to stay positive.
Human beings have a tendency to be critical of themselves and others and not see the great things standing in front of them.
I’ve been guilty of not appreciating what I have, so a few years ago when I was really unhappy, I got intrigued by a ‘gratitude jar’ I saw online.
(I would credit the exact source but it was so long ago I can’t remember – probably Pinterest somewhere. Hi, Pinterest.)
It was a jar with 365 pieces of card in, upon which you… Read the full story

Veganism is a lifestyle – it encompasses plant-based eating, minimal animal products in your life whatsoever (you can complain, but ultimately can’t do much about leather seats on public transport etc) and making sure you swerve toiletries, cosmetics and household products that contain animal products/have been tested on animals.
The majority of vegans are ‘in it for the animals’, but you’d be surprised how many people first got into veganism for other reasons.
Whether the initial reason is health, environmental ethics or to prove a point, the end result is consistent – people usually end up doing their research… Read the full story

Between 2008 and 2014, photographer Jeffrey Stockbridge documented the residents of Kensington Avenue in North Philadelphia, to create a brutal look at the reality of addiction in the area.
*Content warning: This article contains images of drug use which some may find upsetting.*
Jeffrey tells Metro.co.uk that he aims to ‘put an individual face and voice to the opioid crisis in Philadelphia.
‘We can learn from those who are struggling if we resist the notion that they are morally corrupt. The first step is to resist judgement and listen to their stories.’

If you like both running and pizza, or you need something as glorious as pizza to make you run, or you’re bored of doing the same old 5k, listen up: a 5k pizza run is finally coming to the UK.
The pizza run concept has been around for a while across the pond in New York. Over there, each year, there’s the NYC Pizza Run. It’s a 5k with checkpoints where you stop and eat pizza. Great idea, huh?
So, naturally, someone’s nicked that idea and brought it to the UK. Hooray.
Our pizza run will be a little different. Rather than multiple pizza checkpoints, each… Read the full story

Depression can’t be fixed with having a laugh or one cute moment. But those tiny bits of joy can help a lot.
They’re a bit of light through the clouds, a temporary removal of the weight loading up your brain, a reminder that even in the depths of despair there’s still some good in the world.
So while kind gestures aren’t enough to sort out someone’s struggles with mental illness, they’re worth doing.
Take this guy, who did just the right thing to help his girlfriend, who has depression, feel a little better.
How? By piling an assortment of random things on top of her.

For the budget traveller, the mere thought of staying in a hotel is enough to bring tears of joy to your eyes.

Oh dear lord, what are we supposed to drink now? Water?
First Irn Bru announced it’d be altering its recipe in response to the sugar tax. Now Coca-Cola’s changing things up… and not in a good way.
Rather than changing its recipe, Coca-Cola will deal with looming sugar tax by making its bottles smaller and selling them at a higher price.
So we’ll be getting less Coca-Cola for more money. Great.
The brand plans to shrink 1.75 litre bottles down to 1.5 litre bottles, while increasing the price by 20p, from £1.79 to £1.99. The bigger 500ml bottles won’t shrink, but they will increase in price, going from £1.09 to… Read the full story

If you and your partner’s idea of a workout is bickering over which of you is getting off the sofa to get the biscuit tin, prepare to feel a little rubbish about your efforts.

The US has recently seen some horrendous weather conditions, with Arctic temperatures and harsh winds recorded across America.
We’ve had no shortage of wintry weather ourselves, but forecasts show it might be about to get a whole lot chillier.
Outside of the usual annoyances like having to wear extra layers or braving the cold for your commute there’s always the potential your pipes could freeze, costing you money and time.
Luckily, there are things you can do to prevent this occurrence and stop it from being too much of a disaster if it does happen.
The festival of Epiphany is celebrated today by Western Churches and marks the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas after Christmas Day.
The Epiphany signals the official end of Christmas and marks the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist.
The name ‘epiphany’ is actually Greek and means ‘manifestation’ with the date itself being a celebration of God coming to Earth as a human in the form of his son.
It is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as: ‘The manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi (Matthew 2:1–12).’
In the Spanish-speaking world, Epiphany is known as Dia de… Read the full story

Have you ever been so distracted thinking about something during sex that you struggle to enjoy it? That’s what it’s like having sex when you have OCD.
While OCD usually falls into four categories: checking, contamination, hoarding, and intrusive thoughts, the general feelings tend to be the same.
For example, a person with an urge to wash their hands multiple times may share the same feelings as someone with an urge to turn a light on and off again and again. You do it until you find some relief. You don’t stop until your mind finally tells you everything is going to be okay.

The couple had hoped to invite the Obamas. Apparently it peed off a few government officials.

When you’re tying the knot, you want all the people you love in attendance.
Or beings you love, shall we say.
Our pets can play a massive role in our relationships (whether you and your partner bonded over a love of cats or think of your puppy as a practice child), so it seems sad for them not to play a role in our weddings.
That’s why dogs get roped in as ringbearers or brides hand out pups instead of bouquets.
When it comes to cats, though, things get a little trickier. They’re too independent to bother with tricks and are likely to run off if you try to walk them… Read the full story
