Beloveds, I care about sports now! Also have you all watch Netflix's best messy show, Formula 1: Drive to Survive? If you don't like sports, sports documentaries are honestly so intriguing and some of the best docs periodT.

Okay, anywho, due to COVID-19, the usual season opener has been relocated from Melbourne, Australia to Bahrain. Yesterday was qualifying where Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen takes pole position beating out Sir Lewis Hamilton who will take two with teammate Valterri Bottas taking third. Today, is the actual race with and OP thinks this may be an exciting year and really excited to see the Alpha Tauri duo of Pierre Gasly and rookie Yuki Tsunoda.

Update: The sourced tweet is slightly inaccurate as Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel will begin at the back of the grid due to an incident during the yellow flags in qualifying and OP is devastated.

This is my first time watching a live season and I'm a bit hype.

UPDATE: Sir Lewis Hamilton takes the victory while his teammate takes third with an extra point for fastest lap!

Nike Denies Involvement with Lil Nas X "Satan Shoe," Lil Nas X Shares Apology Video


To coordinate with the release of his new single "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)," Lil Nas X collaborated with MSCHF to release a limited edition "Satan shoe" that has stirred up controversy for both its Satanic imagery and the fact that each pair contains a drop of human blood. Although the shoes are Nike Air Max 97s, Nike reached out to Snopes to let them know that they had no involvement with the release and that the customized design was 100% the work of an independent artist at MSCHF. A Nike spokesperson says: “We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF. Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”

Lil Nas X took to YouTube this afternoon to share some words with those outraged by the "Satan shoe," which has been trending on Twitter in the US all weekend:

ONTD, did you like Sara's cameo or you would´ve rather see Meghan McCain going all 'My father was also a super soldier, you know?'

ONTD Original: More ONTD Legendary Posts/Threads - Part 5

This is a follow-up to Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4

There are ONTD Post and there are ONTD Legendary Posts. Those that stand the test of time and become iconic years later.

As always, *click the titles to go to the post/threads and read the hilarious comments*

➡️ Jason Mraz Poop Post 💩

Jason Mraz just wanted people to use less TP, ONTD had A LOT of opinions, and I mean A LOT. How many squares do you use? JM uses 8. Did he hoard TP during the pandemic? So many questions. The post was deleted but some of it remains on thewaybackmachine.


[Take a trip down memory lane...]➡️ Demi Moore demands a retraction from ONTD

Demi Moore -allegedly- photoshopped her lips in a magazine cover, ONTD mocked her and her team demanded a retraction from ONTD. Clearly, ONTD was not pleased.


➡️ Did you just called me c*nt in Mexican?

ONTD has changed a lot over the years, some things don't fly so well today, but back in the day this was a very quotable thing in the comments. OP calls Gaga a try hard for having turquoise armpit hair and well... that exchange happens.


➡️ The 'Wild Mountain Thyme' Spoilery Twist post

A normal romcom set in Scotland takes an awkward twist when the romantic male lead reveals he can't. be with her because he actually wants to be a BEE. Yep. That kind of BEE. As in the animal that makes honey. So ONTD cackles to no end. My all time favorite comment may be the 'BEEGOTRY' line.



➡️ Why is she always posing with a car?

One of those classic ONTD threads. OP wonders why Lana del Rey likes to pose with cars, ONTD has a few ideas and the pile on gets funnier and funnier...


➡️ The OG Kristmas in July Post

All the Robsten Stans lost their collective mind when pictures of KStew cheating on Rob with another director arise. ONTD was on a prayer circle for a while.


➡️ Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are the first celebs to get COVID

Almost a year ago we knew nothing about the virus and we thought it was pretty much a death sentence, so when Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson became the first celebs to announce they had COVID, ONTD collectively lost their shit.


➡️ Instead of tying the knot she took the knot

Again. ONTD has tons of opinions. This time when a British woman married her dog on live TV. I'm wheezing at the comments.


➡️ The OTHERKIN post

Logo aired a documentary about OTHERKINs (for those of you lucky enough to not know what they are: Otherkins are a subculture of people who identify as not entirely human. Some otherkin believe their identity derives from reincarnation, trans-species dysphoria of the soul, ancestry, or metaphor). So basically cray crays.


➡️ Dylan Farrow thanks ONTD!

Sometimes, we actually do a good thing. And this time Dylan thanked us for being a supportive community when she was speaking publicly about being sexually abused by her father, Woody Allen.

Fans criticise Gorillaz for selling NFT after impact on climate change revealed


Gorillaz have announced that they are launching an NFT (non-fungible token) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album. However many fans aren't happy about this as NFTs are said to use huge amounts of energy and will therefore have a vast negative impact on climate change. Fans find this hypocritical as Gorillaz released an album called "Plastic Beach" in 2010 that centred on environmentalism, but are now about to make money on something that is definitely not environmental friendly. Many took to Twitter to express their disappointment with the band, and there's even a petition calling upon Gorillaz to cancel the planned NFT. It's only a few hundred signatures away from its goal of 1000 at the moment.

17 Fan Theories That Will Absolutely Blow Your Mind With Their Devastating Logic



5 out of 17.

- Donkey from Shrek is one of the kids in Pinocchio who turned into a donkey.
"The boys from Pleasure Island in Pinocchio are turned into donkeys, and it is shown that some of the donkeys’ talk/aren’t fully transformed yet. It's pretty mindblowing."

- Each episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia starts with a date and time because they're all testifying against each other in court.

-James Bond's primary purpose is to be a distraction to keep attention off the spies who actually spy.
"Villains and other spies know him because he rarely takes an alias. He makes his presence known early on and keeps messing up operations for the villains, but other spies have already infiltrated their ranks and work while Bond does as much visible damage as possible to keep the others safe."

- In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joyce's aneurysm occurred indirectly because of Dawn.
"Not through magic or anything directly supernatural. But she was Dawn's mother, and therefore she would have the most artificially created memories (conception, pregnancy, life, thoughts, fears, etc.). This caused so much real physical change to her brain overnight that it created real medical problems and killed her. This is never hinted at at all in the show."

-Moana actually dies in the thunderstorm.
"After that, she only meets gods and mystical creatures for the rest of the movie. She still must complete her journey to return the heart of Te Fiti, and when she does, Te Fiti brings her back to life so she can go back to her tribe."
