  1. A question that can have hundreds of answers but we still can't be sure if any of them are correct. It's so cruel that no one can for sure know what actually happens unless you die for real and the curiosity is honestly just too hard to deal with. But, we have one concrete answer for the question, all thanks to the purest and most wholesome person ever - Keanu Reeves. Recently, he appeared on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' and talked about his upcoming movie, 'Bill & Ted Face The Music'. Basically, the movie has the duo trying to write a song to save the entire universe and if they fail, “it's the end of the universe”. To this, Stephen said, “You're facing your own mortality and the mortality of all existence, wow.” Then, that was followed by a casual yet loaded question - “What do you think happens when we die, Keanu Reeves?” Instead of any funny or random answer, Keanu thought hard about it and gave the truest and most profound answer to the question that I've ever seen. He said, “I know that the ones who love us will miss us.” So simple, yet so brilliant, Keanu literally left Stephen Colbert speechless, which is quite a rare thing for a talk-show host. Keanu Reeves gives the right answer to an impossible question. pic.twitter.com/hQAgaaGSEY — laney (@misslaneym) May 11, 2019 It gets even more meaningful when you know how much tragedy he's faced in his life. He lost his best friend when he was very young, then his baby daughter was stillborn and because of that, he also ended up losing the woman he loved. It's not just Stephen who is at a loss of words after this, the video has seen a lot of great reactions ever since it was uploaded. The best, and my personal favourite. HE'S SO WORTHY! Keanu Reeves could easily pick up Mjolnir. — LA (@lancelotaustin) May 12, 2019 True. Ironic because Keanu Reeves is immortal pic.twitter.com/FuFo67GnHO — Jidder Bug (@YatesDotcom) May 12, 2019 Simple. Keanu. https://t.co/k8A4IeUnuD — Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) May 12, 2019 So beautiful. Stephen Colbert lost his father and 2 of his brothers in a plane crash when he was 10 years old. In this moment, I really felt like he was thinking of them. — Dana Melton (@DeadChuffed) May 12, 2019 Truly. Wow, that's absolutely perfect - Stephen being absolutely speechless was about the only possible response in that situation. I mean, what on earth do you say to that? Beautiful words from an amazing human being. — Matticious (@Matticious1) May 12, 2019 Yep. Three great things I know about Keanu Reeves - he fought for my friend - the great Carrie-Anne Moss who was unknown at the time - to be his co-star in the Matrix. He divies up his 'extra earnings' on films w/the crew. He's nice as hell. When the time comes - many will miss him. — BLOOP! (@susiemcdonnell) May 12, 2019 The most unselfish person. What do you think happens when we die? Atheist: We turn into specks of dust Theist: We go to Heaven or Hell Keanu Reeves: pic.twitter.com/jXCcLPxSxH — jimiecheng (@jimiecheng) May 13, 2019 Exactly. It's interesting to think how people almost always selfishly argue about what happens to us when we die. It's refreshing to see someone who's first thought is sympathy for those who are left behind. — Kilikikero (@kilikikero) May 11, 2019 Agreed. Keanu reeves is the one and only person who would not be corrupted by omnipotence — scared ass cat (15 days till ð) (@Smuttysquid) May 12, 2019
  2. If you know a thing or two about K-Pop, then you'd probably be aware of the boy-band BTS. Well, their latest single, “Boy With Luv”, featuring Halsey has shattered the record for most YouTube views in 24 hours. That's right, the music video of the latest single from their new comeback album “Map Of The Soul: Persona”, racked over 78 million views within the first 24 hours of hitting YouTube. K-pop bands are clearly bringing more eyeballs to YouTube than most other videos these days. It's not T-Series or PewDiePie, but the hype's around K-pop now. via GIPHY BTS fans, who're collectively known as the ARMY, welcomed the new album and the music video with open arms and helped the boy-band pull off this epic feat. In case you're wondering, BTS broke the previous record set by none other than their K-pop rival Blackpink. Blackpink's “Kill This Love” title had the record under its name with 56.7 million views in 24 hours. Blackpink's track broke the record of Ariana Grande's “Thank U, Next” song which had 55.4 million views in its first 24 hours. However, the BTS ARMY really came through and managed to break their record by a huge margin. The “Boy With Luv” is the title track of BTS' new album and it parallels their 2014 song “Boy In Luv”. It's about love and finding joy in the smallest things in life. The song features Halsey, who apparently flew to South Korea to work on the video with the boys. The video, in case you're wondering, has over 124 million views and over 2.5 million comments as of today.
  3. Just days before the eighth and final season of 'Game of Thrones' premieres on HBO, a BTS video from the sets of the beloved fantasy epic has taken social media by storm. Titled 'The Cast Remembers', the 10-minute long video shows the cast talk about their journey over the years until the very end. The stars can be seen reminiscing about their most memorable moments on set, the actors they most admire and much more. © HBO The video comes at a time when every 'GOT' fan is waiting for the final season to hit the screens with bated breath. Anticipation is running high, excitement even higher. Yet, no one can ignore the nagging feeling of imminent sadness that the final episodes of the season are going to bring to us - each a reminder to the end. However, seeing some of the main actors from the show talk about the splendid experiences in the video, and their expectation v/s reality anecdotes come as a welcome distraction from the impending end. © HBO From Daenerys to Tyrion to Cersei, every character that we have come to love over the years share some of their best memories, and through it, all of us also get to relive the times of GOT from the very beginning. Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Isaac Hampstead-Wright have literally grown up on the show and all the talking about it will surely leave you guys feeling terribly nostalgic, and appreciate the journey we have made with them all. © HBO From their most shocking scenes, to the most difficult and who gets to be their most favourite co-star, the 'The Cast Remembers' is the best(and worst) sort of goodbye video the makers of 'GOT' could have sent our way at this moment. Adios, amigos. But maybe, not yet.
  4. Marvel really just wants to kick us harder when we're down, don't they? We lost so many, so freaking many people in 'Avengers: Infinity War' and that might not be permanent, but everyone's like 99 per cent sure that we will lose a lot of OG Avengers in 'Avengers: Endgame' so obviously, fans are already emotional. How do you make everyone feel better? Remind them of all the lost characters while promoting the movie, apparently. During a press conference in LA recently, the entire cast assembled to talk about the movie but there were a lot of empty chairs for the 'fallen'. Yes, we can also look at it from a different perspective because it's a nice way to show every character matters, but it gave everyone too many feels. Here are your Avengers, with plenty of empty chairs meant for their fallen comrades pic.twitter.com/5sdyFw5JKv — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 Very hurted. Do they left the seats empty of everyone who turned into dust. That hurt!#AvengersEndgame #Avengers #AvengersPressTour pic.twitter.com/3YgRFPVcjK — Varun Popat (@popat_varun) April 8, 2019 Along with this, there's so much more that happened at the conference, but the most important thing was still the vote on Chris Evans' beard. The Avengers actors were asked to raise their hands if they preferred Bearded or Not Bearded Chris Evans pic.twitter.com/9O8BJq9fZj — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 She really is. RDJ to Brie Larson at the AVENGERS press conference: “Hi Brie! God bless you. What a fun springtime you're having.” pic.twitter.com/pm2CEdqAzz — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 That seems stressful. Anthony Russo: “One of our favorite story adages is to write yourself into a corner... we've tried to do that with the ending of every Marvel movie we've done.” — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 A clear act of aggression. Chris Hemsworth is discussing how he watched the first IRON MAN “straight out of high school,” which I consider an aggression pic.twitter.com/b2Nza3NNZv — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 Good save. Chris Evans is talking about “the completion” of Captain America's arc in a way that immediately set off audible spoiler alarms from the other people on stage. “Let's just talk about SCOTT PILGRIM instead,” said Jon Favreau. pic.twitter.com/RADan09KMZ — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 It's a good thing. “This character started as a sexy secretary with a skill set on the side,” says ScarJo of Black Widow. “The next time we saw her in AVENGERS, she was one of the boys, for better or worse.” ScarJo says BW has grown as the MCU became more diverse and not just “a testosterone fest” — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 So many people. “It's like having the Beatles say, come jam with us for a while,” says Paul Rudd of becoming a core Avenger. “It's so surreal and profound to be a part of it... and it's incredible to meet so many kids whose lives are affected by these characters.” — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 I didn't know that. Brie Larson: “I came in at the most magical time, I think.” Her introduction to the other Marvel heroes was at the studio's 10-year photo. “This film will also be personally dear to me because it was my first time playing Captain Marvel. We shot this first.” — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 Okay, wow. Mark Ruffalo says this press conference is bittersweet for him. “We're all talking like we're dead,” he said. Actors are vagabonds, and this franchise “is the closest thing we have to continuity” pic.twitter.com/BpmTzH7wGG — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 No, Chris, that's not what Captain America would do. Are the Avengers actors so mobbed by children that they need extra security? “I don't mind punching a kid,” snarks Chris Evans — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 Thanks for that, RDJ. RDJ is asked about his scene with Spidey turning to dust: “I love the lighting in that scene. I look so shredded.” — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 A very Brie thing. Moderator Jon Favreau is mostly calling on male journalists in the audience... while Brie Larson is making eye contact with women and trying to get Jon to call on them — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 Avengies Assemble! Here are your Avengies. Only calling them “Avengies” for the next month pic.twitter.com/kOuP2hzLAj — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) April 7, 2019 He's rocking the hell out of them.

  5. While the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has fared pretty well for majority of the teams so far, the same cannot be said for the likes of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). Both the sides have endured tough defeats and, currently, find themselves searching for their first win this season. Thus, when Bangalore and Rajasthan locked horns in the 14th match of the tournament in Jaipur, both Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane made a few changes to turn their fortunes around. While Royals brought in Stuart Binny and Varun Aaron, Royal Challengers handed a debut to Akshdeep Nath and included the likes of Navdeep Saini and Marcus Stoinis in their line-up. "Why did you pick Stuart Binny against likes of Virat Kohli and ABD. @rajasthanroyals team management:#RRvRCB #IPL2019 pic.twitter.com/ZtbFZqw5YD — Shivam Chowkidar (@itsShivam18) April 2, 2019 And, after the changes were announced, the RCB fans were busy trolling the hosts for their decision to include Binny in their playing XI, especially against the likes of hard-hitting Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shimron Hetmyer. But, that prediction rarely affected Royals, not because Binny bowled just one over, but because Shreyas Gopal came to the party with his wrong'uns. For someone who began his cricketing journey as a middle-order batsman, Gopal, over the years, has come into his own to establish himself as a potent all-rounder. If his technically correct batting strengthens Rajasthan's middle-order, his short bursts of accurate spin bowling gives Rahane an additional option in that regard. On 2nd April, Rajasthan didn't really needed Gopal's batting as his spin bowling proved way too deadly for the RCB's star batsmen. The Karnataka cricketer's wrong'uns sent Kohli and De Villiers packing, and a googly brought an early end to dangerous Hetmyer. Twitter/@IPL Introduced in the seventh over, the 25-year-old bowled an absolute ripper of a delivery to breach Kohli's defence and rattle the stumps. In his next over, Gopal - thanks to another wrong'un - got rid of ABD whose hurried effort to jam his bat down resulted in a simple caught and bowled dismissal. His consistency to pick wickets in every over continued as he got Hetmyer out caught behind the stumps on a googly. 3 - Shreyas Gopal has dismissed AB de Villiers every time he's bowled to him in the #IPL (3 instances). Liking. #IPL2019 #RRvRCB — OptaJim (@OptaJim) April 2, 2019 There are a total of 19 instances where a bowler managed to dismiss Kohli and De Villiers in the same innings in the IPL. But, thanks to his latest exploits, Gopal became only the second bowler to do so twice after RCB's current bowling coach Ashish Nehra. He had also dismissed the two star batsmen in the same innings last season. Thanks to his impressive figures of 3-12, Rajasthan managed to restrict Bangalore to 158/4 before chasing down the total with seven wickets and a delivery to spare. Rightly adjudged the 'Man of the Match', Gopal's brilliant spell had everyone singing his praise. Great reaction from Shreyas Gopal to getting Kohli bowled. Just joy and a bit of surprise. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 2, 2019 Shreyas gopal must be playing for indian one day side ..

  6. Remember the time when the most bizarre thing Elon Musk had ever done was send a freaking car to space? Yes, that is still so cool and memorable but it feels like everything Elon has done since then has been an attempt to outdo himself. Wait, maybe I am on to something, a new conspiracy theory. It seems like the only solution for his outright bizarre and unexpected behaviour, especially on Twitter these past few months. He's been busy smoking pot live on a podcast, becoming a meme because of that, asking people to send him their 'dankest' meme, fanboying over Ranveer Singh and 'Bajirao Mastani', and now he's apparently a SoundCloud rapper. The term SoundCloud rapper is basically a meme now and since Elon is slowly turning his entire existence into a meme, this seemed like the next logical step for him. On 30th March, he dropped his hot new single 'RIP Harambe' and tweeted the SoundCloud link to his millions of followers. Isn't it a little too late to pay your respects to Harambe the gorilla who was shot and killed by a zoo worker when a three-year-old boy wandered into his enclosure? Better late than never, I guess.

The song is actually as weird - and autotuned - as you would've imagined. But, soon after dropping the song, he had a crushing realization - his record label, Emo G Records, failed because of some other emoji. I'm disappointed that my record label failed — Jung Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2019 Who would've thought? Duck emoji defeats Emo G Records. Crushing victory. — Jung Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2019 Btw, here's some context.

  7. Mahendra Singh Dhoni needs no introduction to cricket. If great Sachin Tendulkar is deemed god of the sport, then Dhoni will always be remembered as the greatest contributor to Indian cricket. Over the years, we have witnessed Dhoni flourishing in different roles. Whether it's his leadership skills, lightening quick glovework or finishing abilities, Dhoni has successfully managed to do it all. And, while age might be catching up on him and he may no longer be the finisher he once was, Dhoni, even now, has no match when it comes to understanding the game and taking key decisions that tends to aid his team more often, than not. In the last two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Australia at home, Dhoni's absence was heavily felt, not just behind the stumps, but also on the field. Virat Kohli-led India failed to read the conditions on both the occasions that eventually saw them bottling a 2-0 lead to eventually losing the five-match ODI series 3-2. The opening match of the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) witnessed something similar and, once again, showed how important Dhoni is for his team. Ahead of the match, while Kohli decided to go for two spinners and three pace bowlers, Dhoni read the pitch down to the core before including an all-out spin attack. Twitter/@IPL He raised a few eyebrows by picking a playing XI that included veteran Harbhajan Singh who took just seven wickets in 13 games last season. Dhoni also had Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja in the line-up with the likes of Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav more than capable of chipping in with their spin bowling. In fact, the CSK skipper appeared so convinced in his spinners that he dropped an extra batsman in Faf du Plessis and went with just three overseas players into the opening match. At the toss, Dhoni claimed: "We have played a few practice games and it looks slightly on the slower side. We are not sure about the wicket, so we are not sure which target to set". But, knowing someone as shrewd a tactician as Dhoni, you'd agree that he was probably bluffing while holding all the right cards in his hands. And, as expected, Dhoni's masterstroke of playing a spin-heavy bowling attack paid off big time. Starting off with Deepak Chahar, both the teams got to know that it wasn't going to be an ideal run-fest you'd expect from an opener. Sensing that the ball wasn't coming onto the bat, Dhoni introduced spin right from the second over, tossing the ball to Bhajji. For a man who took his last T20 wicket against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on 11th May last year, the CSK offie caused all sorts of problems to the RCB batting line-up. Twitter/@IPL He struck in his second over to get rid of destructive Kohli who picked Ravindra Jadeja in the deep after scoring six runs off 12 deliveries. In his next over, Harbhajan sent Moeen Ali packing after his clever variation resulted in a simple caught and bowled dismissal. His final over began with frustration as Tahir dropped AB de Villiers at deep square leg, but Harbhajan got his man on the very next delivery - thanks to a brilliant diving catch by Jadeja. Dhoni's decision to bowl Harbhajan out resulted in three key wickets - Kohli, De Villiers and Ali, apart from IPL debutant Shimron Hetmyer's run-out which also came in the same over. He did the same with Chahar from the other end before giving Jadeja and Tahir full four-over spells, banking on them to finish off the visitors before bringing on the fast bowlers in the death overs as a contingency plan. But, the fast bowlers weren't really needed as Tahir and Jadeja ran through RCB's middle-order like knife on butter. While Tahir struck in his first over to get rid of Shivam Dube, Jadeja followed in the South African's footsteps by sending Colin de Grandhomme packing in the 11th over. Twitter/@IPL Smelling blood, Tahir got excited when his googly trapped Navdeep Saini right in the front. The on-field umpire had initially ruled the RCB batsman not out, but a DRS review for the LBW eventually led to the batsman getting the marching orders for caught behind - something only Dhoni can pull off. While the replays showed Saini getting struck outside the line of the off stump, it also highlighted a faint inside edge that had eventually lobbed towards Shane Watson at first slip. Tahir made Yuzvendra Chahal his third victim of the night after getting him out caught at deep square leg in the 14th over. The next over saw Jadeja getting excited for a potential LBW and, despite knowing the outcome, Dhoni, just to prove Jaddu wrong, called for a review. The replays showed Dhoni telling the bowler what he thought of the appeal and the result was exactly what the 'DRS king' had predicted: not out. After being embarrassed on the giant screen, Jadeja, eventually, got his second wicket after rattling Umesh Yadav's off stump in the 17th over. The services of Dwayne Bravo were finally used in the 18th over (for just one ball to be precise) where he dismissed lone warrior Parthiv Patel to help CSK bowl RCB out for a mere 70 runs - the sixth-lowest total in tournament's history. Twitter/@IPL At the end of it all, Dhoni's spin-heavy attack had resulted in impressive bowling figures of Harbhajan (3-20), Tahir (3-9) and Jadeja (2-15). A total of eight wickets fell to the CSK spinners - the joint-most in the IPL. Chennai ended up equalling their own record. Their spinners had taken eight wickets against now-defunct Deccan Chargers in 2012. While Harbhajan was eventually adjudged the 'Man of the Match' - his first in four years, it was undeniably Dhoni the tactician whose masterstrokes ensured Chennai remained unbeaten at Chepauk against Kohli-led RCB in over a decade.
  8. Ever since the teaser of 'Kalank' was dropped, Varun Dhawan has been in the news for his super intense role as 'Zafar The Bullfighter'. With never-before-seen intensity, Varun's appearance in the trailer gave viewers all the 'Bahubali' feels during the bull-fight sequence, however, there is one more reason why fans have been super curious about Varun since the past few days. When he stepped out in a super classy ivory Manish Malhotra sherwani, all eyes went behind his left ear, because there was a brand new tattoo there. Take a look. © Instagram/Varundvn He got a number tattooed - '24'. Now, we too were perplexed to begin with, about what it means, just like you probably are right now. © Viral Bhayani We eavesdropped on the gossip mills, but to no avail. While some claimed that this is the date on which he'll get married, others quipped that a major movie is about to release on this date. But we know that 'Kalank' is releasing on April 19th, and it just didn't make sense. Plus, there has been no announcement about a wedding, yet. Right, Ms Dalal? © Instagram/Varundvn 24 is not his age as well (he's 31 already). After a lot of thinking, the only conclusion we could draw was that it's his birthday. Varun's birthday is on 24th April. But, isn't is a little, err, random? Well, we tried to find an answer and this is the best we could come up with. © Viral Bhayani` We're not giving up yet and are soon going to solve the mystery. Unless Varun reads this and decides to tell us himself. Are you reading, Varun?
  9. Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan happen to be one of the biggest names in the Bollywood industry and theirs is the kind of bromance that most of us grew up watching. While today the world mostly talks about on-screen chemistry in relation to the lead male and female actors in a film, Akshay and Saif's chemistry, back in the day, evoked similar sizzle on-screen, with its ability to strike a chord with the flamboyant, young male audience. © BCCL From amongst the handful of movies that Akshay and Saif did together, from 'Yeh Dillagi', 'Tu Chor Main Sipahi', to 'Keemat', 'Aarzoo' and even 'Tashan', 'Main Khiladi Tu Anari' remains their greatest entertainer. So. when Akshay recently shared a hilarious anecdote related to the film, during a chat with film critic and entertainment reporter Rajeev Masand, fans couldn't hold back their guffaws. Recalling their chemistry and friendship from the days gone by, Akshay told Rajeev that during the premiere of 'Main Khiladi Tu Anari' in Delhi, he made a funny mess on-stage and that left Saif in splits. © United Seven Creations Talking about the incident, Akshay said, “I also have a very good memory about when we had gone for the premiere... it is very funny what happened that day. Rageshwari, Shilpa, me, Saif... We had gone to Delhi. Now suddenly on stage, this guy comes and says: 'Ab Akshayji, aap ko AIDS ke baare mein kuch kehna hai'. I didn't know the whole premiere was for charity for AIDS. Mr Ratan Jain (the producer of the film) didn't tell us; he forgot. Because I am the senior, they have called me first. Saif is looking at me and he's laughing, he knows I am nervous, he knows I don't know what to say suddenly. And guess what I must have said; I can never forget what I said.” © Yash Raj Films Yes, trust Akshay when he says that what he said that evening is unforgettable, but kudos to his presence of mind which may have ultimately saved the day, because he came up with the most hilarious thing to say. “I had no idea what to say and I just went and I said: 'Doston, anari mat bano, condom istemal karo aur khiladi bano.” Can you beat that? He was unprepared and came up with this, imagine what a more prepared Akshay would have come up with? We bet it couldn't beat this on any given day, because it is so on point.
  10. The wait for everyone's favourite (yeah, its already assumed that you enjoy it) 'Game Of Thrones' is about to end soon, because Winter, which may be coming to an end in our world, is yet to come in April. So many teasers, leaked pictures, millions of BTS shots later, fans are desperately waiting for just one thing, ie.- the final trailer to drop on our heads! However, seems like that's not happening just yet. HBO has dropped a video montage of what we should expect this year and there was a tiny footage from 'GOT' as well.

When Arya Stark finally gets to behold the magnificence of Khaleesi's dragons (we're assuming it's Drogon here) you can't help but long to see more, but unfortunately, the shot brutally cuts then and there. Obviously, GOT fans are now officially pissed with HBO and want the makers to stop trying everyone's patience and just drop the final trailer already. a dream come true for little Arya Stark #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/FauoVIALGf — arwen ðï¸ kh3 spoilers (@drogonsdaughter) February 24, 2019 HBO when we ask for a trailer for season 8 or game of thrones pic.twitter.com/8cJQAdsJXn — Zuhaila (@Zuuzuux) February 20, 2019 me banging on hbo's door and begging for the goddamn game of thrones trailer pic.twitter.com/XTk3aoXsee — âµ chi âµ (@starksdany) February 18, 2019 We're like really tired and upset and when will HBO get a clue about our desperation?

  11. The manager is always right. No matter how unfair their decision seems to be at the time, the players must obey and follow their leader with the utmost dedication and sincerity. That is the unspoken code of honour in football and nobody should be able to undermine something so pristine. But clearly, Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga seems to think that he's above everyone else and therefore doesn't have to follow the code. After all, he did sign a grand seven-year contract with the Blues. On Sunday, the 24-year-old Spaniard decided to disobey his manager Maurizio Sarri's direct command during extra time in the Cabaro Cup final against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City when he refused to being substituted with Willy Caballero. Throwing a fit like a baby, Arrizabalaga refused to leave the field and talked, rather argued his way out of Sarri's decision to take him out. Sarri's livid behaviour as soon as the referee let Arrizabalaga stay on the field was not only justified but also validated by the furious Chelsea fans present at the Wembley stadium who booed the Spaniard throughout the penalty shootouts. Alas, despite Sarri's brilliant leadership and coaching throughout the scoreless yet highly engaging match, Arrizabalaga's decision to be the goalkeeper during the penalties backfired as the Citizens scored a total of four goals versus Chelsea's three to bag the win. Letting a Sergio Aguero penalty slip from underneath him was the worst that could have happened to the Spaniard after the monstrosity he had created a few moments ago. Kepa Arrizabalaga refuses to come off the pitch, and then does this... ð¤£#CHEMCI #CarabaoCupFinalpic.twitter.com/nXkZnpDCCA — David Kislingbury (@DKislingbury) February 24, 2019 The fact that in a verbal spat between a player and the manager of a team was won by the player throws a lot of shade at the leadership of one of the most prestigious clubs. The under-fire manager withdrawing from the fight against his own spawn will surely have repercussions on his journey ahead with Chelsea. Arrizabalaga came forward with an explanation for the farce in the post game press conference: "I understand that on television, on social media, they're talking about this but I am here to explain it, to say that it wasn't my intention to go against the manager. We have spoken now, and I was only trying to say I'm fine. He thought I wasn't fine. It was in tense moments, with a lot happening,” said the keeper. “I think it was just misunderstood, and unfortunate, because now people are talking about this… I don't know what to say, other than to say it was not my intention in any moment.” Enraged with Arrizabalaga's shameful act of disrespect, Twitter didn't hold back in giving the Spanish footballer a tantrum-treatment: And the wanker of the day award goes to... Kepa Arrizabalaga Well done, Kepa ððð#ChelseaManchesterCity pic.twitter.com/lClKlWbm8d — Mr Grumpy ð (@mistergrumpysnr) February 24, 2019 Kepa Arrizabalaga should never play a game for Chelsea ever again. What he did today was nothing short of a disgrace, capped off by an absolute blunder in the Aguero penalty. Disobeyed Sarri, disobeyed Zola, and ultimately shot his Chelsea career in the foot. Embarrassing. — EiF (@EiFSoccer) February 24, 2019 Kepa Arrizabalaga suffers his first defeat as Chelsea managerðð pic.twitter.com/xOIwfWFI7k — Arnoldi (@arnoldi254) February 24, 2019 Highlights of the Kepa Arrizabalaga saga. pic.twitter.com/VhUnYx8KZg — Big Fella Yerry (@MainManMina) February 24, 2019
  12. While growing up, especially in the 90s, we were all hooked to popular culture which was making its way through to India from all across the globe. One of the most prominent indulgence back them was music and whenever we speak of international music from the 90s, we can't help but unanimously think of the 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson. We've all heard him while growing up. While some us were truly hooked to his music, most of us were enthralled with his style of dancing. Whatever it was, MJ proved to the world that there would never be another music icon like him. © Pintrest But TBH that's not all we've known him for and quite unfortunately, MJ has managed to tarnish his reputation. While the newsroom was always abuzz with his stories, some of them stated that he was a child molester, a paedophile, who would molest little boys in his fantasy themed ranch-home, 'Neverland'. The news came and went like a season and although it baffled most of us, we shrugged it off as a misheard rumour and still gave him the respect he then deserved when he made us live under the realms of secrecy and the lesser known. © HBO Recently, after almost 20 something years, new information has surfaced giving the old rumours much more room and significance. Almost ten years after his death, a documentary has seen brand new light, highlighting evidential facts about MJ indeed molesting little kids in 'Neverland'. The documentary paints a rather unnerving and painful picture of the pop-artist's former ranch and we're feeling absolutely gutted even writing about it. The controversial film focuses on sexual allegations made by two men, whom he befriended when they were boys and asked them to stay with him at Neverland. Wade Robson and James Safechuck were sexually abused by MJ for several years in secrecy at his Nerverland ranch in California. © HBO The documentary has posed several legal threats for HBO and Channel 4 and obviously for the makers too, by Michael Jackson's estate, but the channels will air it regardless, next month. In fact, a new trailer for the documentary dropped just a day ago and the claims seem more real and uncanny than before. The new trailer offers a first look in to Jackson's twisted personality, via a 4 hour documentary, which was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival last month and it absolutely shocked the critics and the audience as they didn't know what was really coming for them. The two boys have absolutely exposed the closeted predator behaviour MJ displayed at his ranch and most of the facts are shocking and unbelievable. © HBO In the movie the accusers explain how Michael had led them to believe that if they ever told anyone about what he was doing to them then they would all end up in jail and so they didn't come forward to tell their story, most of their growing years, even after he passed away. “Everybody wanted to meet Michael or be with Michael,” We drive in, and forget about all your problems, you were in Neverland. It was a fantasy,” Say the boys in the new trailer. © HBO According to Dan Reed, the director this is not a movie about Michael Jackson or of how he abused little boys sexually. The main focus of the film is on how two families trusted Michael Jackson to leave their sons in his care and how much of an effort it took for the boys to reveal the truth to their families, years later, when they were grown men. MJ's estate has criticised the film already, in a 10-page letter addressed to the CEO of HBO but HBO is determined to telecast the documentary, without making any cuts by next month. There have been some attacks towards the film and towards Dan Reed by MJ's fans but given that the situation is fairly tough, this is bound to happen. © HBO “Anyone who sees the film will know it is solely about hearing the stories of two specific individuals and their families in their own words, and that is a focus we are very proud of,” - Reed told a popular publication. For the Indian audience who absolutely love Michael Jackson, maybe it's time to give up your fandom in order to not glorify predators and see them for who they really are. Here's hoping we get to catch the documentary in India sooner than later and it's accessible to easily download or buffer through the interweb.
  13. Amitabh Bachchan is more than the superstar that he is on-screen. Fans have milling outside his Juhu mansion for years now, and the Sunday ritual holds a special place in the hearts of those hundreds of people and the veteran actor alike. The reason why this admiration never ceases but only continues to grow, is simply because the actor is involved in a lot more than just movies and ad campaigns. Sr. Bachchan is constantly involved in a number of social projects that don't stem from personal or commercial gains, and it is these actions that don't skip people's attention, urging them to fall deeper in love with the person that Amitabh Bachchan is. Sr. Bachchan again stepped up his game with his recent appearance in a video with differently abled children, wherein all of them performed the National Anthem in sign language. The actor took to Twitter to retweet the video which was originally posted by a fan of AB. The National Anthem .. our pride, our identity, our liberation, our belief, our self esteem .. BUT MUCH much MORE IN THE EYES OF THOSE, THAT CANNOT HEAR OR SPEAK !! .. my privilege, my honour .. my INDIAð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ https://t.co/i9RTUS5PaT — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) January 30, 2019 The video shows AB and the other kids in white, against the backdrop of the Red Fort, as the endearing rendition plays along with some of them joining him in the act, while others sang the national anthem in the background. The peace and pride that the performance fills our hearts with, is simply touching, and other Twitter users haven't shied away from expressing their appreciation towards AB's association with this video which the actor said he was “honoured” to be a part of.

  14. In yet another bizarre incident from around the globe, a man is probably dying of shame and embarrassment right now due to his own stupidity. Well, that happens a lot, agreed, but this one particular case is a notch above the rest. © Getty Images A cheating boyfriend is in big trouble because he proposed to the wrong woman! Yep, I wouldn't really discredit this information since he's already been tagged as the 'cheating boyfriend' by all the international tabloids! An anonymous man who already had a girlfriend was having an affair with his colleague as well, and he'd decided to propose to her (the colleague of course). But instead, he ended up proposing to his OG girlfriend on New Year's Eve and we're left wondering, was he high? © Getty Images Well, apparently he wasn't high. He'd planned to break up with his current GF and propose to his colleague, but on NYE, he got carried away when he saw his friends getting engaged and since he was with his current GF then, 'he went with the flow' and asked her to marry him. Oops! Now, the anonymous dufus has taken to Reddit under the pseudonym 'propermistakeregretit' and is asking for legal advice on his dilemma. If I had a rupee for men using Reddit to solve some of their vacuous drama, I'd be a millionaire by now! © Getty Images "I'm seeing someone else, wanted to break up with her. I bought the ring for a work colleague, wasn't planning to propose until the holiday we planned," he wrote. "During New Year's Eve, I proposed to my girlfriend. It's been posted on my friends Snapchat, my girlfriends Facebook page, everywhere. "I saw people proposing so I wanted to go with the flow and proposed to my girlfriend whilst partially p*ssed. "Can I get the ring back and cancel the engagement please?" He wrote. The man expressed his sentiments, with an uncanny sense of feeling absolutely sorry for himself! Not the girl he cheated on, not the girl he didn't propose to, but himself! I mean, he'd marry a mirror if he got a chance to, to fulfil his conceited ego. Obviously, people on Reddit aren't really kind to this form of eccentric misogyny and they came out saying he doesn't have a leg to stand on legally and called out his alarming behaviour as bizarre and ridiculous. I wish there was documented evidence of this rather bizarre happenstance, so we could actually see his expression change to that of horror and shame, after proposing to his poor 'ol GF! © Getty Images The funny bit though is, out of 100 comments on his Reddit, one user by the name of 'AR-legal', summarised the whole thread, saying: "Let me check I've got this straight: "You were planning on proposing to a work colleague when you go on holiday, despite the fact you are still seeing someone you class as your girlfriend. "However, in a twist of fate, you took that engagement ring out with you on New Year's Eve. Either that or you took the wrong girlfriend out. Either way, mistakes were made. "Those mistakes were compounded when you got caught up in the heat of other people's affection and proposed to your (wrong) girlfriend. "Well, from a legal perspective you're sh*t out of luck because a gift is a gift, even when given by a moron. "However, there is a solution: tell your (current/accidental) fiancée about the mistake. Honesty may actually be your best policy here because I suspect that the realisation that you are such an utter fungus of a person will lead her to take the ring off and fling it. "If you're lucky, you may be able to find it and then can give your ex-fiancée's sloppy seconds to your bit on the side. "And what a lucky girl she will be!" Well, if you're wondering what he actually did, he gave in his notice at work and decided to stick to his actual GF, oops I mean his fiancé (now), while keeping his other affair a secret, still. Seriously, are you KIDDING ME? © Getty Images "I've known my girlfriend longer and my mum gave me a call saying she's happy and she's always wanted grandchildren and what not so I didn't want to disappoint my mum," he wrote. We're done with 'writing about extremely stupid people' today, so I am going to take a breather or two and move on to my next piece of writing. But, seriously, this man deserves a medal and some inspirational piece of logic and common sense.
  15. The year 2018 witnessed some exciting clashes in the football world. While the clashes between arch-rivals set our hearts racing, the shock defeats pulled off by minnows did leave the giants red-faced. From the FIFA World Cup in Russia to the exciting leagues across the globe, here's a look at the major upsets that sent shockwaves across the footballing world in 2018: Germany Left Red-Faced (FIFA World Cup) © Reuters Going into the 2018 FIFA World Cup, defending champions Germany were expected to pose a grave threat to all the top contenders in Russia. And, for a team that had gone past the group-stages of the mega event sixteen times in a row, Germany's eventual disaster couldn't have possibly been predicted by a football pundit. But, Joachim Low's men stuttered and how. Amongst some desperate games, Germany's 2-0 loss to South Korea didn't just send them packing, but it also pretty much summed up their dismal outing in one of the world's biggest spectacle. The additional-time strikes from Kim Young-gwon (90+2') and Son Heung-min (90+6') didn't help South Korea to progress further in the tournament, but it did secure a famous win for the country. For only the second time in history, Germany were eliminated from the First Round at the World Cup having last done so in 1938. Real Madrid Losing To Eibar (La Liga) © Reuters Following their third consecutive UEFA Champions League title triumph earlier this year, Real Madrid and their fans were left reeling with the unexpected interview of Cristiano Ronaldo who expressed his desire of leaving Santiago Bernabeu. If that wasn't enough, the fact that Zinedine Zidane, soon, followed in the footsteps of the Portuguese, further left the Blancos in distress. Left to fend for themselves in the absence of their star man and pragmatic coach, Real Madrid had more agony to endure when they travelled to Municipal de Ipurua where Eibar cut them a sorry figure. In a game that featured the likes of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos, Real Madrid stuttered to a shocking 0-3 defeat. Despite maintaining possession and comparatively better accuracy in passing, the visitors found themselves trailing 0-1 after Gonzalo Escalante opened the scoring for the home side in the 16th minute. Coming out in the second-half with the same scoreline, Madrid's problems quickly turned into a nightmare as they conceded two more goals in just five minutes after Sergi Enrich (52') and Kike (57') sealed Eibar's domination in one of their famous triumphs in recent times. Man City Shot To The Ground By Crystal Palace (EPL) © Reuters For a team that smashed multiple records on their way to a phenomenal title win last season, Manchester City have shown signs of frailties and vulnerabilities in the Premier League this time around. One of the top dogs of the league, Pep Guardiola's men have lost three games in the ongoing season and are currently seven points behind leaders Liverpool. Their latest 2-1 defeat against Leicester City has surely titled the tide in the Kops' favour. But, it was undeniably Crystal Palace's shocking 3-2 triumph at the home of the champions that will go down as one of the major upsets this season. Despite taking the lead through Ilkay Gundogan early on, City didn't just lose their lead, they found themselves trailing in a space of eight minutes. If Jeffrey Schlupp equalised for Palace in the 33rd minute, Andros Townsend's long-range screamer, two minutes later, sent the home crowd in a state of shock. Trailing 1-2 in the first-half, the hosts tried to up the ante in the second but Luka Milivojevic's strike from the spot-kick in the 51st minute doubled the lead for Palace. Their talisman Kevin De Bruyne did pull one back for City in the 85th minute, but Palace stood their ground to shock the defending champions. Bayern Munich Stunned By Hertha (Bundesliga) © Reuters Falling in the footsteps of Manchester City, Bayern, too, were expected to continue their dominance in the Bundesliga ahead of the season. But, what many predicted to be a comfortable season for the defending champions, eventually turned out to be quite a task. Niko Kovac's side is currently trailing arch-rivals and league leaders Borussia Dortmund by six points on the back of three losses and as many draws so far. Amongst their defeats this season, one that arguably stands out came against 8th-placed Hertha in an away game. They probably did everything right, but as said earlier, just like City, luck was not in their favour. Barcelona Shocked By Leganes (La Liga) © Reuters Even the mightiest can be humbled at times, a testimony to that came through Barcelona's surprising defeat to Leganes in an away game. Despite their star-studded line-up which included great Lionel Messi, Barcelona couldn't avoid the inevitable. Everything was going well for Barca until they lost focus for a mere two minutes, which eventually saw them conceding two back-to-back goals. The Blaugrana did try to recover but Leganes' resilience in defence sadly saw them losing the game 2-1.
  16. 2018 is about to end and just like any other year, there have been many diet trends which gained popularity. Some unnecessary, some downright stupid, these diets have no place in a healthy person's life but still, somehow these diets still are trending. The Reason? People want quick fixes. Most people are not willing to put in the work required to get fit and are willing to follow anyone who comes up with a new dietary gimmick blindly very conveniently ignoring their health, lifestyle and other factors. Let's look at some of the dumbest diet trends that were popular in 2018 1. Keto © Pixabay The mother of all fad diets, no matter how much evidence is presented to prove that keto is not superior to any other dietary pattern when it comes to fat loss, people just don't get it. What people fail to understand is that the sudden drop in weight that happens when you first start the ketogenic diet is just water weight and not fat. You CANNOT lose 4 kgs of fat in a week unless you are morbidly obese and somewhere are 250 kgs. Also, a ketogenic diet is not the best idea if you are interested in strength sports as you need carbs for that explosive energy. 2. OMAD © YouTube OMAD or 'one meal a day' is just a fancy name for Intermittent Fasting where you do not eat for long periods during the day and eat your calories within an eating window. This eating pattern is very restrictive as you would starve for almost the entire day and get to eat just once, which not only leaves you hungry but devoid of energy as well. Result? The same as any other eating pattern when calories and protein are matched. 3. Alkaline diet © Pinterest This utter stupidity of a diet trend started around 2010 based on the notion that it's possible to alter your blood pH through a change in diet to make it more alkaline, receiving numerous health benefits. When in reality there's no evidence whatsoever which shows that there is a connection between foods this diet recommend and the actual pH of those foods. Outrageous claims are made saying that this diet cures everything from obesity to cancer to make some quick buck off gullible people, who would be convinced by every other marketer that promises quick fixes instead of getting their nutrition in place and exercising. The diet is also complemented by the belief that some people have that apple cider vinegar will cure all ills. They suggest ingesting six teaspoons of this acid every day will produce a more alkaline body pH. This idea is so ridiculous that it can only be described as idiotic. 4. Carnivore © Pixabay This diet trend is fairly new in India as compared to all the other dumb trends which have been around for longer. As the name suggests, you eat only meat in this diet. Proponents of this claim that you get all the nutrients you need through meat and there isn't a need to eat anything other than that. For survival, your body needs 13 vitamins, and though you can actually get most of them from eating a variety of meats, you're going to miss out on some crucial vitamins and minerals if you completely ignore fruits and veggies aka carbs. Vitamin C and E and folate are mostly found in green leafy vegetables and citrus fruits. To use vitamin K efficiently, you need to eat enough vitamin E which you cannot get through meat. Then there's fibre. Eating meat does not provide the body with any fibre whatsoever and as we all know by now, fibre is absolutely vital for healthy functioning of your digestive system. It promotes a diverse, robust microbiome in your intestines, and your microbiome seems to impact everything from your basic digestion to your immune system to your mood.

  17. For decades now, Bata has had us covered when it comes to classic, simple and comfortable formal shoes. If you are not living under a rock, then you'd remember how the shoe masters had Kriti Sanon mesmerized with their fashion-forward range of shoes that she could flaunt on the red carpet or during a night out. And after her pleasant experience, she decided to open Sushant Singh Rajput's eyes to the makeover that the brand has undergone. The film starts with Sanon waiting on Rajput to get ready for a party. In the haste of making it on time, he forgets to change his footwear and comes out wearing shoddy looking slip-ons. They decide to buy a new pair on the way from Bata. Rajput takes a jab at the suggestion - because they weren't going to office now, were they? As the film progresses, we see that it would be an understatement to say that he was left absolutely shook! After all, the new collection is aptly named #SurprisinglyBata. The new casual collection with mesh, flyknit and Lycra materials and light-weight soles not only ups your cool quotient but also offers comfort and value for those who love the trendy and casual look. The collection, available in both low cut and high ankles, come in a wide variety of colours- from navy, beige, brown to olive. So no matter where you're headed - a date or a party, Bata will have you covered. Get your hands (but mostly feet) on the new collection at select Bata stores near you and be prepared to be surprised!
  18. Sixteen years ago, a 19-year-old girl broke into the Indian women's Test side and a few months after her debut in the longest format she gave everyone a glimpse of her capabilities with a staggering knock of 214 runs against England in Taunton. A lot of time has passed by since then, but the legend of Mithali Raj continues to grow in international cricket. Ever since making her international debut in 1999, Mithali has established herself as India's most dependable batswoman, scoring runs in crunch situations and shattering one record after another. She is the highest run-getter in women's international cricket and the only female cricketer to surpass the 6,000-run mark in women's ODIs. As she turns 36 next month, Mithali now boasts of numerous records in international cricket. And, even if her role (other than aiding India with the willow and her leadership skills) has now transcended into grooming young and upcoming members of her team, there is just no stopping this workhorse. © Twitter/@ICC One of the most diligent servants of Indian cricket, Mithali has played a pivotal role in the rise of the women's game in a country that has, for long, obsessed over their male counterparts. From shutting down sexist reporters to disapproving comparisons between male and female cricketers, the Indian captain (in Tests & ODIs) has helped her teammates in carving their own niche in a sport dominated by men. The right-hander would have surely cherished every milestone she has attained in her illustrious career so far, but her latest feat is undoubtedly the one that is going to remain close to her heart and stay for long in the memories of Indian cricket fans. For those who thought that women's game lacked adequate level of competition owing to the limited agility of female cricketers, Mithali's recent milestone seems to be an apt reminder of what they are capable of. Plying her trade in the ongoing ICC World T20, Mithali didn't get an opportunity to bat amid Harmanpreet Kaur's spectacle with the willow. But the right-hander came into her own, smashing a brilliant fifty in the next game against Pakistan. India's clash against Ireland, once again, saw Mithali rising to the occasion with another fifty to her name. While her 51-run knock helped India beat the Laura Delany-led team and secure their semifinals berth, it also allowed the seasoned campaigner to notch up arguably one of the most influential milestones of her career. Mithali Raj tops an illustrious list of India's most prolific T20I run-scorers ðªð®ð³ 1ï¸â£ @M_Raj03 2ï¸â£ @ImRo45 3ï¸â£ @imVkohli 4ï¸â£ @ImHarmanpreet 5ï¸â£ @ImRaina 6ï¸â£ @msdhoni pic.twitter.com/SmQt9LjLzu — ICC (@ICC) November 15, 2018 As India reached the semifinals of the Women's World T20 for only the third time (and first since 2010), the Rajasthan-born cricketer continued to lead the list of top run-getters for her country (including men and women) in T20Is. Mithali, now, boasts of 2,283 runs in the shortest format for India, leaving behind the likes of country's more popular cricketers Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the coveted list. While Mithali scored those many runs in 80 T20I innings, Rohit, currently placed second in that list, could only manage 2,207 in as many innings. Virat, who is currently India's third-highest run-scorer in the shorter version, has amassed 2,102 runs in 58 innings. The fourth spot has been occupied by Harmanpreet who has 1,827 runs to her name in 91 T20I innings. India's record run-scorer in T20Is, @M_Raj03, was on top form again with a half-century to help her side into the @WorldT20 semi-finals! Watch the highlights of her innings, delivered by @oppo #FlashCharge! â¡ï¸#WT20 #WatchThis pic.twitter.com/A4Tkj9BPJR — ICC (@ICC) November 16, 2018 Mithali's fifty against Ireland also saw her going past New Zealand's Martin Guptill who is the highest run-getter in T20I in the men's game. When it comes to top-scorers in T20Is overall, Mithali is only behind Suzie Bates (2,961), Stafanie Taylor (2,691) and Charlotte Edwards (2,605). © Twitter/@WorldT20 The same innings allowed the veteran Indian star to notch up 17th T20I fifty which also saw her going past Bates, Alyssa Healy and Pakistan's Babar Azam to record the most 50-plus scores in a calendar year combining both men's and women's cricketers. A cricketer, whether male or female, notching up a milestone is nothing new in the modern era of the sport. But, at a time when the women's game, after toiling away in obscurity for generations, is taking huge strides to change the dynamics of how people perceive it, Mithali's latest feat is more than just a milestone, it's a stark reminder of how far these wonder women have come, giving the celebrated male cricketers a run for their money. And, if that doesn't get them the respect and praise they deserve, probably nothing will.
  19. For Indians, September probably signifies the announcement of the new Apple phones and the start of a new season of 'Bigg Boss'. The 12th Season is all set to kick off in a few days and while fans are loving this year's batch of contestants and are waiting to watch Salman Khan in action, the aesthetic pleasure of having a home tour of the infamous 'Bigg Boss House' is another important factor for the viewers. © Colors Thanks to social media, a few images and videos of the 'beach' themed house have been leaked and by the looks of it, they look pretty awesome!

A post shared by Bigg Boss 12 ð (@biggboss_khabri) on Sep 13, 2018 at 9:43pm PDT With interesting names like former cricketer Sreesanth, popular comedian Bharti Singh and British adult actor Danny D all packed together, we can't wait to see this year's bloodbath. The host will obviously be everyone's favourite Salman Khan. The show is kick-starting this weekend and we are ready for the next 3 months of pure entertainment!
  20. The final season of everyone's favourite 'Game Of Thrones' is still going to take a while before it hits our screens and blows us away with what it has to offer, in terms of the many questions that are hanging on our heads like daggers. © HBO While the wait is crazy and it's less than a year (as if that's a consolation) left when we'll shun social life for decrypting episodes, a bizarre new theory about the insane connection between Jon Snow and the Night King is doing the rounds on Reddit. Let's discuss what everyone is expecting from the finale. A major chunk of the fan population feels that Jon Snow will reign, Khaleesi will unite and have a family of her own with him, Cersei will be defeated and it's going to be one happy ending for our guy who was previously unlucky in love with Ygritte. However, if history is proof then we know that the makers do anything that is ever predictable and everyone changes sides like a game of chess. © HBO According to this bizarre new theory, Jon Snow will be the end of the Night King and will replace him, and not just kill him. Allow yourself a breather and read this before you react: “Someone has to 'pull out' the dragon-glass in his chest which was used to create him in the first place. By doing this the Night King would 'die,' but unlike what happens when someone kills a 'normal' white walker, none of the creatures the Night king 'created' or turned would die. Instead they would lose the mind controlling effect the Night King has on them, and they would start doing whatever the f*ck they want, i.e. rampaging around the country. To prevent this scenario from happening someone has to take the place of the Night King by stabbing himself with the previously extracted dragonglass-dagger. By doing this the person (in our mind Jon Snow) would sacrifice himself for the greater good, gaining control over all of the wights and walkers. He then would lead them back over the wall back into the north where they would stay like it has been before since the last long night (like a beast in a cage).” Now we know that Jon Snow is the ever-sacrificing, people-loving King; so this actually makes sense if you allow this theory to persist. © HBO So I am adding this theory to the list of things that have addled our brains and made the wait harder that it already was.
  21. In his time as Prime Minister, Modi Ji has blessed the nation with a string of awesome thoughts and strategies, while also displaying his knack for injecting humour in almost everything he expresses. World leaders look up to him and he definitely deserves the credit for putting India on a pedestal for the world to see. However, despite all the grandness and achievements, sometimes, even our beloved icons become a victim of an innocent faux pas, and that's exactly what happened to our dear Prime Minister. Recently, while addressing a gathering, PM Modi was sharing his thoughts and his theory on how one can use sewage water and the evaporation of water from a 'chai' vessel to produce...wait for it...biogas! Dr Homie Jubaangir Baba explaining his research about the use of Toxic gases of sewer & manhole for cooking purposes in front of Nobel Prize committee for Chemistry. (2018) pic.twitter.com/PCwraslxEJ — History of India (@RealHistoryPic) August 12, 2018 This theory is making a lot of people laugh their heads off and as expected, the meme army is hard at work. Last night I ate a lot of chole.. Today morning used that gas to make tea.. — Atul Khatri (@one_by_two) August 13, 2018 You people are crazy, changed the info on Wikipedia page. ððððð¼ðð¼ pic.twitter.com/rZm978BEE4 — Angoor Stark ðð®ð³ (@ladywithflaws) August 12, 2018 This dude is questioning his education now. I have two master degrees in Renewable Energy. If Modi ji can prove his statement and prepare tee from biogas in a naala, I will burn down my degrees. — Unnamed Indian (@SUN_EXPRESS) August 12, 2018 If you wonder how it is possible, here's some pictorial representation for you.

Sorkar.ððð https://t.co/rdCZfOnua1 — Rajat Saxena (@RajatSaxenaa) August 12, 2018 Ppl making fun of Modiji for his theories on gas should know, that gas production of ONGC increased by 6.3% after Sambit Patra joined as director. — Punster® (@Pun_Starr) August 12, 2018 Anyway, let this little gaffe not take your attention away from the fact, that he is indeed a very stellar leader.
  22. Ask most women out there about the features they find most desirable and attractive in men and you'll be hearing the word 'beard' a lot. This shouldn't be surprising since a a beard - especially those that are well-trimmed and don't make you look like you've been homeless for the last three months - can make you go from looking 'good' to 'great' in a matter of seconds. And last time I checked, we weren't going through “No-Shave November” as well - so there is basically no reason for you to not be owning a premium trimmer. So on that note, here are 7 of the best Nova trimmers for men that will help you become more desirable than ever before. 1.

  23. Half of the internet, most of who happen to be cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra's fans, went into a meltdown after coming across his post on Twitter. Reason? His 'double than most of our salaries' food bill. Aakash Chopra paid a whopping 7 lakh food bill, but here's the catch. While, some thought that it's Rs. 7 lakh, it is actually the Indonesian Rupiah he's talking about, which is around 3300 in Indian currency. When Twitter was busy reacting to Chopra's food bill, we came across Cristiano Ronaldo's generous act towards a certain hotel in Greece where he was chilling with his family. An act that's worth way more than most of our annual salaries. Felicidades nesta nova etapa. â½ï¸ A post shared by Andrade (@andrade5212) on Jul 12, 2018 at 10:34am PDT Post Portugal's exit from the World Cup Round of 16, Cristiano Ronaldo took some time off to explore the picturesque locales of Greece, and relish the Greek hospitality at Costa Navarino hotel with his girlfriend and family. By the end of his stay, he was so impressed by the staff and their services that he gave them a whopping £17,850 as a tip. FYI it's close to Rs. 16 lakh. Honestly, it will take me two glances at my bank balance before this news finally sinks in. Lovely moments!ðð½ A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano) on Jul 12, 2018 at 12:45pm PDT Reportedly, the gesture came after he signed for Juventus in a EUR 100 million deal. In fact, the deal was finalized during the Greece trip as he was in talks with Juventus executive Andrea Agnelli during that time. We guess Cristiano Ronaldo's heart is bigger than his pocket. So what if he exited the World Cup early, he sure left a huge smile on the faces of the hotel staff that served him during his stay.
  24. When most of us were busy adding and deleting people from 'Please Koi Toh Chalo Goa' group, our favourite celebrities were making us go green with envy with their vacation pictures. In case you couldn't figure out, we're talking about the King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan and his family, who seem to have forgotten to switch off their holiday mode. Every time SRK or his family does something, it becomes the hottest topic for the whole country. And as expected all eyes were on the Khan family and their European vacation. © Instagram While, Shah Rukh Khan had to cut short his trip due to work, his wife Gauri and daughter Suhana took off to New York to continue the second edition of their trip. And the latest picture of this mother-daughter duo is proof that they are having the time of their life in New York. But we guess they're not enjoying it as much as Shah Rukh Khan is, just by looking at them. © Instagram Recently, Gauri Khan shared a picture of her and Suhana sitting at a restaurant in New York and captioned it, “New York Times.” Given SRK's unmatched wit and sarcasm, how can he miss this golden opportunity and left a comment that only he could have come up with. New York Times .. â pic.twitter.com/lHEENSU5my — Gauri Khan (@gaurikhan) 16 July 2018 He wrote, “NYTimes is carrying great news…” and we can't disagree with him. First 'Ask SRK' and now this post, Shah Rukh truly is the 'King of Wit'. NYTimes is carrying great news.. https://t.co/EaKjcaUYmZ — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) 17 July 2018 After spending quality time with his wife and kids in Spain, Italy and France and giving major travel goals to billions of his fans with the pictures, SRK came back to resume work. And Aryan Khan is now chilling with his 'bois'. © Instagram On the work front, SRK is now gearing up for his upcoming release 'Zero' which also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
