I Paid My Girlfriend For Every Kiss She Gave Me

I Paid My Girlfriend For Every Kiss She Gave Me


Hi everyone, my name is Terrence and I’m 17
years old. I depended on one girl so much, that I stole
for her. Let me tell you one thing at a time… Six months ago, I met a girl named Elizabeth
on Instagram. Of course, at first I only saw her Instagram
page, but she was incredibly beautiful in her pictures. She’s 17 too, and she lives a couple of blocks
away. I liked these coincidences… and I talked
to her for a week, and realized that we had a lot in common. For example, we both thought I was a great
guy, and most importantly, a good friend… This is my way of telling you guys that she
totally had me friend-zoned… it was a shame, but regardless, I believed that it was necessary
to fight for a girl, so I continued to talk to her, hoping for something more. I wrote to her often, but she ignored most
of my messages. Elizabeth didn’t tell me what had happened
to her parents, but she lived with her grandmother. According to her stories, they never had much
money, and over time, things got even worse. At some point, her grandmother started having
heart problems and most of their money was spent on medicine. Then it wasn’t just new things that Lisa couldn’t
afford, but also food. I wouldn’t say that I was happy about this
situation, but it helped me come up with a cool idea for how to help both Lisa and myself,
and even her grandmother. I asked Lisa to date me for money… (20 bucks per date). I know what you’re thinking, it sounds strange,
but I was tired of just seeing her online. She had doubts, but when I made it clear that
I did not expect for her to have feelings for me, and that I could only hope for them
to appear, she agreed. So we started “Dating…” This was one of those times where a girl is
even more beautiful in real life than in her Instagram pictures. I was glad that I had finally gotten the opportunity
to meet her in person. But unfortunately, our dates were very weird. Elizabeth felt like she was at work. I took her to the movies and cafes, and gave
her little gifts, but it was all in vain. Of course, I was very upset. My money was going to run out at some point. A week passed, and there were still no results. One day, after watching a movie with my parents,
I had another idea. In the movie, a frail man (just like me),
beat up a bad guy who insulted his girlfriend and won her heart – and the whole situation
had been set up by this guy in the movie. I decided to do something similar. One night, when I was walking Elizabeth home,
the “bad boy” – played by my friend Jason – began to harass us. Everything looked very realistic, the harassment,
and the fight. So the plan worked. When Jason “ran away in terror” from my strong
fists, Elizabeth was very impressed and even kissed me on the cheek. And even though I was really happy, that kiss
ended up not really changing anything. I stopped caring about classes and spent all
day trying to figure out how to make Elizabeth fall in love with me. At some point, I decided to ask my father
for some advice. I became interested how he had won my mother’s
heart. It turned out that they had experienced a
similar situation, except for the money aspect, of course. My mother also did not want to be with him
for a long time, but according to him, everything changed after a magic kiss. When she was about to blow him off again,
he just kissed her on the lips, and then it all started to spin… and at that moment
I thought, ” So this is what I’ve been missing.” I thanked my father for his advice, and went
over to Elizabeth’s house a couple of hours later. I want to clarify, at that time the idea “money
=dates” was firmly stuck in my head. So on one of our dates, instead of doing it
unexpectedly or romantically, I just asked how much she would expect for kissing me on
the lips… I am still surprised that I did not get slapped
in the face for asking… but apparently, she was also used to me paying for everything,
so she offered her price. It was 500 dollars… Man, I really wanted to kiss her, and I really
wanted to be with her. But $500 was out of my budget. It was too awkward to ask her for a discount
on this, but I could definitely have used one. Anyway, I assured myself that this kiss, as
my dad said, would change everything, so I started thinking about ways to get the money. I had some savings, of course, which I used
to pay for Elizabeth and I on our dates, but by then, it was almost gone. That’s when I remembered my parents ‘ savings… They kept most of their money in a Bank account,
but I knew for sure that they had some of it in a drawer in their room, and that they
also don’t look in there very often. I decided to steal it for the sake of love. Especially since I was still going to put
that money back after I got a job. So, when my parents were not at home, I looked
in that box and saw that there was much more than I needed, but I obviously only took $500. I closed the drawer and made it look like
I had never been there, and then I ran to Elizabeth. I was so excited about the kiss that I almost
fell as I was running. When I met her, I gave her the money, and
the truth hit me. I had already kissed girls before, but this
time… I’ll remember those 10 seconds for the rest
of my life … unfortunately, as you may have already realized, it was only amazing for
me. Elizabeth’s face showed almost no emotion
after the kiss… But at that moment, I was still fooling myself
that everything would change. After the kiss, we went for a walk. I reached out to kiss her goodbye, but…
but she didn’t want to kiss me again… When I got home, my parents were in some kind
of fight. As far as I could tell, mom suspected that
dad had a mistress. They were screaming, but to be honest, I didn’t
really get into it, because I had had enough of my own drama. Ah… But the worst was yet to come. Elizabeth and I went out much less often,
because, as I said, my savings were gone. Surprisingly, over time, I even began to think
about her less, but unfortunately not enough time had passed for me to forget her completely. One day, when I was walking with Jason (my
friend who played the bad guy in our “fight”), I noticed Elizabeth at a cafe with some guy. I was not about to jump to conclusions, you
never know who it could be. But at the same moment I went inside to say
Hello, she kissed him. I instantly forgot that I was with Jason. I felt dizzy. I thought it was only girls who get sick from
love. But as it turns out, thats not true. Elizabeth saw me and took me aside to talk. Basically, she told me what I was afraid to
admit… I listened, with tears in my eyes, when she
said that the guy she kissed was her real boyfriend. And she only sees me as a friend, a friend
that pays her to hang out with him. Why didn’t I end it after that kiss that didn’t
lead to anything?! It would have been much easier. But there in the cafe, being shocked and extremely
jealous, I did something stupid. I asked her how much money she would need
to leave her boyfriend and finally love me for real, without paying for dates and kisses. I was so naive to think that I could buy love
for money… She said she wanted $3,000, and as far as
I understood, if I could not pay it I was supposed to just leave her alone. But, I was ready to act… I told her to wait for me in that cafe… And she grinned, agreed, and sat back down
with her boyfriend… I ran home to get the money. My parents were at home, but in the kitchen,
so I managed to quietly sneak into their room for the money. I quickly counted out $3,000 and left, but
not before covering my tracks. When I returned to the cafe with the money,
Elizabeth was shocked. She thought I might have done something illegal
to get the money, but she didn’t ask about it. And maybe it was just because of the money,
or maybe it was because she saw what I was willing to do for her, but she broke up with
that guy. After that, we had a great date. She knew that I no longer had any money, so
she paid for me everywhere we went. It surprised me, because she had never done
this before… I was just so happy, that I blindly believed
that everything would change. What a jerk I am. My problems continued and my parents noticed
that the money was gone. When I got home, my mother asked me if I had
taken the money. Of course, I was afraid, so I said no. But my mother believed me. Her main suspect was my dad. Ever since she’d been paranoid about him having
a mistress, she’d been suspicious of him. Well, the disappearance of three and a half
thousand dollars confirmed her version… Dad also wondered where the money had gone
and asked me several times about it, but I just shook my head no. So a week passed and they were fighting all
the time, but I was hoping that I would have enough time to get a job, earn the money,
and put it back as if nothing had happened. To be honest, I don’t know what I was thinking
at the time. I’m a complete idiot… You might have already guessed, but my love
story was over as fast as that $3,000 ran out. We basically dated for a week after that,
but then she broke up with me. The dumbest thing is that I was surprised
by what happened back then. I’ll never get tired of calling myself a naive
fool… but the story with my parents wasn’t over yet. After they could not find the reason for the
disappearance of the money, my mother accused my father of spending it on a mistress, and
they decided to get a divorce. At that moment, my conscience was fully awake,
and I confessed. Of course, my parents were very angry that
I almost drove them to divorce, and that I stole their money… They did not kick me out of the house, but
they said that they would no longer help me financially. And of course, that I should get a job and
pay them back all the money I had taken… That’s my story… Have you ever been as far in the friend zone
as I was? Tell me in the comments how it was for you. And, of course, share this video with your
friends…

How GOOD Was Peja Stojaković Actually?

How GOOD Was Peja Stojaković Actually?


Peja Stojaković was one of the greatest shooters
in NBA history. From all areas of the floor he was a sniper,
incredibly accurate with a smooth quick release on his jump shots. He was up there with Ray Allen when it came
to shooting. During the 2000s both of them were at the
top of their games but unlike Allen nobody really talks about Stojaković anymore even
though in my opinion Stojaković would be a perfect fit for this modern era of basketball. How’s it going fellas? My name’s Andy and today we’re gonna take
a look at Peja Stojaković. How good was he actually and what kind of
play style did he have? Peja was drafted in the legendary 1996 NBA
Draft. Selected right between Kobe Bryant and Steve
Nash. But unlike the other stars from that class
paisa did not play in the NBA until two years later. In those two years he was still playing basketball
overseas in Greece. In 1997 and 1998 peja was an all-star in the
Greek league and also won MVP in 1998. Fun fact, in the 1998 season in Greece Peja’s
team would play Panathinaikos in the finals. Coincidentally in that series a 20-year-old
Peja will play against his future coach Byron Scott. At that time Byron Scott’s NBA career just
ended and he spent his last year playing professional basketball in Greece. Unfortunately for Peja he would lose the series. However, shortly after the loss he announced
that he was coming over to the NBA. In his first couple seasons he was mainly
coming off the bench as a backup small forward to Corliss Williamson but even at a very young
age he showed flashes of star potential. Early on he was primarily a jump shooter who
stood at the three-point line and waiting for the ball to come to him. Occasionally he would pull out some moves
off the dribble and some cool passes that came out of nowhere. Eventually after Corliss Williamson was traded
in the summer of 2000 Stojaković became the full-time starter. The 2000 to 2001 season would be his first
full season as a starter and he instantly proved that he was a star. He averaged over 20 points a game and hit
40 percent of his threes. Over the next few years he would continue
to improve in every aspect of the game. His shooting, his defense, his passing and
his ability to finish at the rim which was surprisingly a very strong part of his game. For his career he shot 67 percent at the rim
between zero and three feet’s. Back then that was a great percentage for
a small forward especially for a guy like Peja, who is not exactly a super athlete. Peja’s success over the next few years resulted
in three straight All-Star selections, one All-NBA third team selection and he won the
three-point shootout twice in 2002 and 2003. However, despite Peja’s incredible play
during the regular season there were many times when he struggled in the playoffs. The most notable instance was in the 2002
Western Conference Finals. This was the series that’s you know, maybe
the refs were favoring the Lakers a little bit but what was swept under the rug was Peja’s
ridiculously bad performance. Yes, I do know Peja just recently came back
from injury and he probably was not 100% but still he returned for the last three games
of the series and played horribly. In the closing seconds of the fourth quarter
in game 7, Hedo Türkoğlu passed the ball to a wide-open Stojaković and he air-balled
the shots badly by like three feet over the rim. He finished the game with 8 points, shot 3
of 12 from the field and missed all 6 of his three-pointers. Even if we don’t look at the series there
were other times when Peja underperformed when the team needed him the most. 2 years after the series against the Lakers,
the Kings would face the Minnesota Timberwolves in the second round of the 2004 playoffs. This year Peja had the best season of his
entire career averaging a career high 24 points a game. As he finished second in the entire league
in scoring. But in the playoffs, he laid another egg. His scoring and shooting dipped across the
board and in the deciding game 7 against the Wolves it was Deja Vu or Peja Vu. Once again, he capped off an underwhelming
game 7 with 8 points on 3 of 12 shooting in 46 minutes of playing time. The Kings would lose the series and that was
the last chance they had. That was the end of that era as they would
blow up their team after the loss. Although Peja had his difficulties I don’t
want to call him a playoff choker. He did have some great playoff series as well. There were a couple reasons for his playoff
struggles. The main one was because defenses started
to focus on him more. The best player on those Kings was Chris Webber
but just like Peja he had some injuries and whenever Webber was injured Peja became the
focus of the other team. It didn’t help that Peja himself always seemed
to have some nagging injuries whenever the playoffs rolled around. While he was a very versatile scorer, he still
had trouble creating his own shot against great defenses. This is what separates great shooters like
Peja from a guy like Steph Curry for example. If the defense shuts down Peja’s open looks
he wasn’t good enough to consistently create off the dribble and attack the rim. So, instead he had to settle for a lot of
difficult contested jumpers. Teams would always focus on preventing shooters
from getting open looks and with the way the Kings offense worked everybody was cutting,
everybody was making passes and running around trying to get open. But this type of ball movement does not work
well in the playoffs because the game slows down, and it becomes a half-court game. This kind of exposed Stojaković since a large
part of his offensive game was because of the Kings ball movement. Anyway, as the years pass by Stojaković would
be traded a couple of times. He would spend four years in New Orleans playing
alongside a young Chris Paul and David West. Unfortunately, this was when his injuries
really started to pile up. He missed most of the 2006 to 2007 season
because of back problems and eventually he had to get back surgery to fix the issue. You guys know what happens when people have
back problems. Unlike a broken leg or a broken hand, back
problems never go away, and it was clear that Stojaković could no longer maintain his all-star
level play. But despite the injuries he was still a solid
role player in New Orleans. Occasionally he would show flashes of his
former self. One time he even scored 20 straight points
for his team. His time in New Orleans had his highs and
lows and the injuries were the lowest points of his career. Overall, those Hornets teams had other injuries
that prevented them from reaching their full potential. On paper those teams actually looked amazing. You had Chris Paul who was very young, but
he had the best seasons of his career when he was there. He was an MVP caliber player. You also had David West who was an all-star. Tyson Chandler was the guy in the middle and
with Peja on the wings they had a very good team from top to bottom. If it weren’t for the injuries, they could
have done a lot more than just a second-round exit. To cap off his NBA career he played a crucial
role in helping the Mavericks win their first-ever championship. After the 2011 season Peja felt that his back
problems and the soreness in his knees were too much for him to continue playing. He retired right after winning the championship
at the age of 33. During that championship run he stated that
“Being part of this run is something special. Having injury after injury you don’t always
have the same strength to work and get back, but patience is the key word. I’m happy everything worked out”. So, how good was Peja actually? Well, he’s hard to evaluate because he’s one
of those guys whose impacts goes way beyond his box score numbers and even then, his numbers
are great too, but it was way more than that. In his prime the spacing he provided for those
Kings teams allowed the entire system to work. That team played like a prototype version
of the Warriors using ball movement and a lot of screens to set up all their plays. With that being said I’d say in his prime
Peja was probably somewhere between top-10 to top 15 in the league. In my opinion he also made the greatest pass
of all time. You can see it right here. Even though he averaged fewer than two assists
per game he was a much better passer than those numbers indicate. It’s just that his role on his team was to
shoot and score not pass. Additionally, patient impact on the transformation
of the NBA. As one of the most efficient scorers in his
prime he and the Kings in general had a major impact on the current day offenses. In fact, in today’s game at 6 foot 9, 230
pounds Peja could easily play power forward and he would be a matchup nightmare. Up until this day he’s still the greatest
NBA player to ever come out of Yugoslavia. Nobody can challenge him for that title and
that’s because well, Yugoslavia does not exist anymore. Anyway, that’s all folks. That sums up the story of Peja Stojaković,
one of the greatest European players of all time. Let me know your thoughts on Peja, what would
be the best comparison for him? Let me know in the comments. Thank you all so much for watching and as
always, I’ll see you next time. Peace.

I Proposed My Bf To Marry Me At The First Date

I Proposed My Bf To Marry Me At The First Date


Hi everyone, my name is Sarah. Recently I had to tell my husband that he
was not the father of our child. The worst part is it was true. I did have an affair with somebody else. But it’s not that simple. I was 19 years old and grew up in a single-parent
family. My father left us when I was very young. So my mom raised me alone, and she didn’t
have time to start a new relationship. Even when she had boyfriends, their relationship
would end when he found out that my mom had a kid. So, all this time she’s been very lonely. It must have affected her a lot, because after
I turned 18, she kept trying to set me up with her friend’s son, Mark. She was really obsessed with this idea. Sometimes my mother and I just walked in the
park, and “accidentally” met them. And usually, after ten minutes of conversation,
our parents would hint for to us to go for a walk by ourselves. Or rather, they didn`t hint, but actually
said it pretty clearly. Oh, it was so annoying! Mark had had a crush on me since we were teenagers. But I didn’t like Mark, and I didn’t want
to date him! The thing is, I already had a boyfriend, I
just didn’t tell my mom about him. His name was Victor, and he was the love of
my life. And there was an important detail that I have
to tell you. He was 27 years old. This may seem strange, but don’t judge us. We had a good time together, precisely because
he was an adult and a mature guy. Unlike my peers, Victor was smart, calm, and
made a good living for himself. Obviously, it was better to date a guy like
that, than 18-year-old boys who looked more like rabbits than men. They thoughtlessly ran about with crazy eyes
and didn’t know what they wanted. But I’m sure you heard me say earlier, my
mother didn’t know that I was dating Victor. The thing is, she banned me from seeing him. A year ago, our relationship was just beginning,
and a couple of months later, I wanted to introduce him to my mother. Victor came to our house for dinner, and as
soon as my mother saw him, she almost fainted. For her, the relationship between an 18-year-old
girl and a 27-year-old man was something that was unthinkable. Mom started screaming and swearing and just
kicked him out of the house. But despite my mother’s orders, I continued
to date him, only now we kept our relationship a secret. I told my mother I started dancing, and I
went to dance school four times a week. Just so you understand, I was going out with
my boyfriend this whole time. But the rest of the time, my mother kept bothering
me with this Mark guy. At one point, I realized that she would not
leave me alone until I agreed to go on a date him. I decided that Mark would be a great disguise
for my relationship with Victor. So the next time he visited us, I took the
first step myself and asked him out. Oh, my mother was over the moon. Her cherished dream had finally come true. But my life remained the same. I told my mom that I was going on a date with
Mark, and then I told Mark that I was going to a dance class. It was perfect. This went on for about two months, but then
something happened that changed my life forever. I got pregnant. It wasn’t bad news for me. I didn’t have anything with Mark, and I knew
for sure that the baby was Victor’s. So as soon as I saw the two stripes on the
pregnancy test, I rushed to Victor to tell him the good news. But his reaction put me in a stupor. He got scared and started talking some nonsense
about how he wasn’t ready to have a baby and stuff. I thought he was just in shock, and that he
just needed a little time to accept it. But the next day, it got even worse. He tried to persuade me to get rid of the
baby. Oh, my Gosh, I didn’t expect this from a grown
man. Was Victor really that kind of person? It seems like it. I wasn’t going to get rid of the baby, I couldn’t
even think about that. So my relationship with him was over. But my problem still stayed with me. I was thinking about how I could tell my mom
that I was having a baby. And I didn’t know how to do it. In my head, she would just destroy me for
lying to her for so long. So I needed a plan. And he appeared all by himself. Mark wrote to me and asked if I wanted to
meet him. Hell yes! We picked a time and a restaurant, and as
soon as I got there, I started telling him that I loved him and that I wanted to spend
the rest of my life with him. He was stunned by this information. Then I suggested we get married right away. You should have seen his face. It was a mixture of surprise, confusion, and
happiness. But he agreed. That same day we told our parents everything,
and a couple of days later we were officially husband and wife. It was quick and unexpected, but Mark was
happy to finally have the girl he had loved since childhood, and my mom was happy that
I married a good guy. Then I waited for about a week and a half
and told my husband that I was pregnant. This was hard news for him, but unlike Victor,
he didn’t look for an escape plan. I have to say, Mark showed himself to be a
perfect man during the time I was carrying the baby. He was sweet, patient, and caring. And it was a little embarrassing. Because when I was planning my deception,
Mark was the annoying neighbor kid. But now I saw his true identity, and my conscience
began to gnaw at me for using him. I didn’t expect Mark to be able to arouse
any feelings in me. But I saw how he tried to take care of my
child, how tired he was, and how little sleep he had. And I understood that he was an amazing man,
and that he shouldn’t have to raise someone else’s child. So I decided to pay Victor a visit and get
him to start taking care of the baby. But during this year that we hadn’t seen each
other, his life had changed a lot, and I saw it as soon as the door of his house opened
in front of me. But the person who opened it was not Victor,
it was some 18-year-old girl. When I said that I needed Victor, she screamed
“Honey, someone is here to see you!” Honey? A year ago he swore eternal love to me, and
now he was living with this silly girl! I literally went crazy at that moment. I broke into his house, started screaming,
and just smashed everything I could get my hands on. It was his repayment for leaving me alone
with the baby. Then I turned around and left. It was a good punishment for him. But Victor didn’t think so. That evening he called me and started yelling
at me, he was really angry, and he blamed me for ruining his relationship. And then Victor started to blackmail me. He demanded that I reimburse him for all the
money he had spent on planning a trip with his girlfriend since they had broken up because
of me. Otherwise, he promised to tell my secret to
my husband. I had two days to make a decision. And during both of these days a war was literally
going on in my head. The army of light told me that I had to confess
everything and to accept my punishment. And the army of darkness was trying to persuade
me to somehow find the money and hide my deception. Unfortunately, the dark forces had better
arguments. After all, if Mark leaves, I’ll have to raise
the baby alone, just like my mom. So I came up with a plan, and to do that,
I had to lie to my husband again. For the last time. I told him that I needed money for a training
course for young mothers. And as soon as Mark realized that the money
was needed for our child, his eyes lit up with kindness, and he ran to get his credit
card. But I couldn’t accept the money. Mark was too kind to me. He was willing to give everything up for a
child that wasn’t even his, and I was just using him. Suddenly there were tears in my eyes, and
I just fell to my knees and begged for forgiveness. Mark was dumbfounded and did not understand
what was happening. Then I told him everything. Absolutely everything. I didn’t expect him to understand or even
forgive me, I just felt sorry for what I had done. That next second, he turned and walked away. Then I heard the car pull away from our house. Mark was absent until that night. All this time, I just stood by the crib and
cried, imagining Mark kicking me out of the house, then my mom cursing me for my lies,
and finding myself on the street, alone, with a baby. It was just awful. But then I heard a car honk outside. It was my husband! When I ran out of the house, I saw Mark and
Victor outside. My ex looked like he’d been in a fight, and
he had a very guilty face. He apologized and promised to help me with
the upbringing of our child. Then Mark let him go, and he hurried away. But this was not the end. Mark pointed to the car and told me to get
in. I went in and got the baby, and I knew where
we were going, so I wasn’t surprised when the car stopped at my mother’s house. Yeah, I had to tell her everything. I think I’ll skip this part of the story. It’s still hard for me to remember. What about Mark and I? Of course, he was very upset when he found
out the truth, but he wasn’t going to give up on me. During the time he had spent with the baby,
he had already fallen in love with him, and he didn’t want to part with him – he considered
him his son. As for me… I was sorry that I had done so many bad things
to such a good man, and I hope that Mark can forgive me. I want to start all over again. Only now there will be no lies in my life,
because I want to build our relationship based on love and trust. Thank you for your attention. Give me some advice on how to earn Mark’s
trust again? I would be very grateful. Also, don’t forget to share this video with
your friends. Bye!

15 UNBELIEVABLE Behind the Scenes Facts from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Hello and welcome to the channel! In this video you’re going to learn 15 behind
the scenes facts about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. [film slate sound effect] The third film in the Harry Potter franchise was going to be very dark in comparison to the first two films and the series’ new director–Alfonso Cuarón–wanted to prep the three young leads by having them each write an essay about how their characters had changed over the past two films. When it was time to turn in their papers,
Daniel Radcliffe had written a one page summary, Emma Watson wrote a 16 page research paper, and Rupert Grint didn’t write anything at all. However, instead of being disappointed Alfonso was happy that each of their responses to the assignment showed how well they understood
their characters’ behavior. Some other actors who had homework to do were: Gary Oldman, who had only read the first book in the series, and David Thewlis and Michael Gambon who hadn’t read any of the books before being cast in their respective roles. However, all three actors committed themselves
to read the third book before filming began. [Welcome, Welcome to another year at Hogwarts!] Before Michael Gambon was cast as Dumbledore a few well-known actors were considered for the role after Richard Harris passed away, and one of them was Sir Ian McKellen. However, the problem was that before dying
Richard Harris said McKellen was a “passionless” actor… “You shall not pass!” [Narrator]…so ultimately the Lord of the Rings star turned down the role of Dumbledore because he felt
it would’ve been inappropriate to replace someone who didn’t approve of his work. To help the young teenage actors begin to
develop more unique personalities, Alfonso Cuarón gave the actors permission to wear
their uniforms however they wanted. In addition to that he also wanted Harry,
Ron, and Hermione to wear regular clothes more often than their Hogwarts uniforms to
allow them to show more of their characters’ personalities throughout the movie. Harry Melling who played Dudley Dursley was
almost recast because of all the weight he had lost between the second and third film. But instead of casting someone else in his role the filmmakers decided to have him wear fat suits to maintain his pudgy appearance
throughout the rest of the films in the series. One of the new characters that brought a darker tone to the story were the ghoulish looking Dementors, who were inspired by creatures J.K. Rowling saw in her nightmares while she had depression before her success with the Harry Potter novels. To bring the Dementors to the big screen,
Alfonso Cuarón was nervous about using CG at first, so he initially tried using practical effects with water tanks. However, their tests weren’t producing the
results he wanted so he decided to have the Dementors be CG instead, but they used the footage from the water tanks as a reference to help design the creatures’ movement with
the computers. Even though the story’s tone was darker,
the cast and crew still had some fun to keep things lighthearted on the set. For example, during the sleeping bag scene
Daniel Radliffe had asked to be placed next to a girl he liked, but what he didn’t know
is that Michael Gambon put a remote-controlled whoopee cushion inside it so the filmmakers could embarrass him while he was trying to stay in character for the shots. [Whoopee cushion noise] The Prisoner of Azkaban
was the first time the series was filmed on location and they used Scotland to serve as the Hogwarts castle grounds, but filming there came with the challenge of dealing with the rainy weather conditions. They decided to film in May since they believed
it would be the least rainy month of the year; however, when they got there it rained every
day for 28 days straight, and the ground became so wet that they had to fly in a helicopter
to dump gravel on the ground to keep it from washing out from underneath them. Robbie Coltrain’s costume was very heavy
weighing more than 60lbs, and filming the forest scenes in his thick, heavy costume
was very hot with temperatures rising up to 100 degrees outside. So he was given a special vest to wear with
plastic tubing that ran ice water through it to keep him cool while filming. To film the Hippogriff scenes they used a
combination of practical and CG visual effects. To help the actors’ performance on the set
they used an animatronic that took four months to build and was so convincing that some of
crew had to keep reminding themselves it wasn’t a real animal. To make Harry’s flight with Buckbeak look
more convincing they placed Daniel Radcliffe on a motion rig and then superimposed his performance
on top of a CG Buckbeak. And to get the exterior shot of Hogwarts castle they built a small scale model and then added all the components together during post-production. The Knight Bus was actually a real vehicle that they built by cutting a double decker bus in two parts and then installing a middle section between them. The Knight Bus was also built to travel twice
the speed of a real London bus. And to get the shots of Harry being tossed
around inside the bus, they built a hydraulically controlled motion base in a sound stage to film the bus interior. For Professor Lupin’s transformation the
make up process was very long and tedious and took 6 hours to get David Thewlis ready
for his scenes. Even some of the animals went through a transformation for their roles such as the cat they used for Crookshanks. They put jelly and eye shadow around his eyes
to make them look sad and angry, and he went into hair and make up everyday where they
took the loose hairs of his undercoat, rolled them into a ball, and clipped them to his
fur to make him look mangy. Is The Prisoner of Azkaban your favorite film

6 Scary Stories That Actually Happened


6 Scary Stories That Actually Happened 1/Was working the evening shift at a gas station. Man comes in all disoriented. I go to help him out. he has a gash on his head and doesn’t know
where he was. I couldn’t see any crashes around so assumed
he had fallen or something. Normally we are supposed to stay inside the
glass shielded register area whenever anyone is in the store. I, being a nice human being, went to help
while calling the police/EMS. They got there and checked him out. They thought his head may have been fractured. Took him to the ER. I went back to work. Cops stopped back by for some coffee a few
hours later. They told me the guy got hit by a baseball
bat trying to break into a little girl’s bedroom and was wanted for rape and murder in two
other states. I never left the register area at night again. 2/In my town in the early 90’s there was a
notorious killer that had all of BC, Canada on watch. My wife’s mother (years and years before I
knew them) had been home alone while her Husband was in England doing tree surgeon work (arborist)
She was in her laundry room when a man walked up from her basement, completely scaring her,
she freaked out and said what the hell are you doing here? He said he was friends with her husband and
was just coming to see if he was here, apparently he told him he could just walk in. Which she knew was bullshit. She was smart enough to tell him that he was
just at the store and would be back any minute. He said he would wait outside for him, as
soon as he left, she called the police, but he was long gone by the time they got here. Two weeks later, the killer was caught, his
mugshot put on TV and it was the guy in her house. 3/My dad and some friends got drunk and went
for a drive on some back roads and were going as fast as the truck would go as teenagers. My dad was slightly less drunk than the others
and eventually demanded they let him get out. They pulled over and he and one other girl
got out. He and the girl started walking to town while
the other three sped off in the opposite direction. Well less than a mile up the road from where
they got out is an extremely sharp turn, which they missed and hit a tree going pretty close
to triple digits (miles per hour). Two of them died on impact and the only reason
the third survived is because they crashed in front of a house that two doctors lived
in. The survivor was paralyzed and lost his leg
and part of his arm and was in the hospital for eight months before dying. This was in the ‘60s so medical care wasn’t
what it is today. When I first got my permit my dad took me
to that corner to explain the importance of safe driving. It gave me goosebumps about how close he was
to being in the truck. He said that the dad of the driver got what
remained of the truck to be hung up in the center of town for months after to be a warning
to all. 4/This is a hometown story that stayed with
me. It happened literally right around the corner
from where I grew up, maybe a two minute drive away. Judy Kirby murdered six children and one adult
by intentionally driving the wrong way on a divided highway in an attempt to commit
suicide. She had been hospitalized for depression,
but had also just ended a relationship with her ex husband’s brother and was by some reports
involved in drug trafficking and fearing an imminent arrest. She picked up her sister’s son, who was celebrating
his tenth birthday that day. She then loaded her three children into the
car, supposedly to pick up a gift for my nephew. Instead, she went missing with a carload of
kids. A short time later, the calls started coming
in to 911 about a car going the wrong way down the highway at a high rate of speed. They made it about 90 seconds before a head-on
collision with another vehicle, driven by a father with two children and another child
along for the ride. The crash annihilated both vehicles. The only survivors were Kirby herself, and
the child who was along for the ride in the other car. There were pieces of children all over the
highway. She was sentenced to 215 years in prison. 5/Years ago when I was 8 my family lived in
this big weird house kind of on the edge of a small town. The school district was in the middle of a
big restructuring so even though we were only a couple grades apart my brother and I went
to different schools and took different buses. This left me as the last person to leave in
the morning and the first person to get home in the afternoon, which meant it was my job
to make sure all the lights were off and the door was locked. One morning I noticed the basement door was
open and the light was on so before I left I turned off the lights and closed the door. When I got home that afternoon, the light
was on and the door was open again. I just assumed that I’d forgotten to actually
take care of it when I noticed it in the morning so I went over to turn off the lights and
close the door. When I got to the top of the basement stairs
I looked and there was a big shadowy male figure towards the bottom of the staircase. I freaked out, slammed the door and pushed
a bunch of boxes against it and then went and hid in my closet. For months I didn’t tell my family because
I was positive what I saw was a ghost and didn’t think anyone would believe me. Then about a year after that incident my mom
and her boyfriend realized that small amounts of money had been going missing for months
(totaling around $800-900, but never more than $60 at once). So we all walked around the house with flashlights
trying to figure out how they could have gotten in. Turns out some creep was climbing in through
a small hole in the outside of the house, shimmying through a crawl space, then coming
up into the house through the basement. Realizing I had been alone in the house with
him on at least one occasion was one of the worst, most terrifying moments I’ve ever
had. 6/One night, I was out at a bar with a friend
I was visiting in New Rochelle, NY. We went outside for a cigarette, and a car
came flying past the bar. The car burned through a red light, and started
going up this hill that was on a curve. We watched as he veered over the double yellow,
and smashed head on with another car coming from the other direction. Both car’s hind ends lifted up, then slammed
down. The car that was driving correctly burst into
flames. I ran inside and grabbed the fire extinguisher,
then yelled to the bartender to call 911 and say there has been an accident. My friend, a few other patrons, and me ran
to the cars. Now, I used to think this was a fictional
trope, but I was pretty drunk before this happened, and I swear it sobered me up instantly. I tried spraying the fire, but it did nothing. The fumes and heat were awful, and all we
could do was stand back. The worst part was, and this will haunt me
forever, was that the woman in the burning car was screaming as she died. My God, it was the worst sound ever. The fire department came and put the fire
out. The police took us back to the bar and took
statements. I found out the next day in the news, that
the car was not speeding was being driven by a young woman coming home late from work. She was a block away from home, and I think
she was either newly married or a new mother. The rotten motherfucker driving the other
car was some rich drunk cocksucker. He lost a leg, but otherwise was physically
unharmed. I have no clue if he did, as I left to go
back home a day or so later. Thanks for watching the video. I hope it gave you the chills. Make sure to subscribe to our channel, Creepy

Turns Out Hunter Biden Was Actually Quite Useful to Burisima


Turns Out Hunter Biden Was Actually Quite
Useful to Burisima. When the Democrats and the corporate media
talk about Hunter Biden we mostly hear, quite loudly, that he did nothing wrong, or the
claim of political corruption is without evidence. We heard this frequently during the impeachment
trial of President Trump and anytime a Republican brings it up on the 2020 campaign trail. According to a report it now looks like Hunter
Biden was actually quite useful to Burisima and they may have gotten their moneys worth.
It’s claimed he was paid $83,000 a month, or $996,000 a year for his services. According to National Review: A consultant for Burisma with links to Hunter
Biden approached a top State Department official in June 2016 to discuss “troubling events”
in Ukraine, according to newly released State Department emails. Consultant Sally Painter of Blue Star Strategies
was at the time working with Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company, to quash corruption
investigations into the firm. Painter approached then-deputy secretary of state Tony Blinken
at an event for the Truman National Security Project, and sent an email to Blinken’s
top aide three days later requesting a second meeting with the deputy secretary. “Per my conversation with Tony at the Truman
event, [Painter’s Blue Star partner] Karen Tramontano and I would like to have a brief
coffee with Tony at his earliest convenience regarding some troubling events we are seeing
n [sic] Ukraine,” Painter wrote in a June 27, 2016 email first reported by the Daily
Caller. The email shows an instance of Burisma’s
efforts to contact State Department officials at the same time it was being investigated
for corruption. However, the email does not specify whether Painter discussed Burisma
with Blinken. Other emails show that Tramontano had been in contact with the state department
specifically regarding Burisma. Based on that report it sure looks like Burisima
got something for their almost million dollar a year payoff to Hunter Biden.
Which likely explains why he got the job in the first place. It certainly wasn’t for
his business resume and experience in the international energy field. Senior political analyst Betsy McCaughey writing
at RealClearPolitics has the following timeline that clarifies things a bit: April 15, 2014: Burisma sends Hunter Biden’s
business partner, Devon Archer, $112,000. April 16, 2014: Archer visits Vice President
Biden at the White House. April 21, 2014: Vice President Biden arrives
in Ukraine bearing millions in aid for the Ukraine energy industry. May 12, 2014: Hunter Biden joins Burisma’s
board. February 2015: Ukrainian authorities seize
the property of Burisma’s CEO and go after unpaid taxes. March 2016: Biden demands that Ukraine’s
top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, be fired, and threatens to hold up $1 billion in U.S. loan
guarantees. This shows that President Trump was right
to ask for an investigation into Hunter and Joe Biden’s dealings in Ukraine. Democrats impeached him for this claiming
it was an abuse of power and an attempt to undermine the 2020 elections. Yet what they were really doing was an attempt
to cover up Joe and Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings in Ukraine and possibly take out
or wound President Trump in the process. Truly reprehensible, but totally in line with
how Democrats operate these days. Truly reprehensible, but totally in line with

True Home Alone Horror Story Animated


i’m thirty years old. and this story took place when I was thirteen. i thought the girl wwas speaking i got so scared my mother was a single mom and she had to work two jobs. poor her 🙁 She worked at a grocery store in the morning and a bar at night. YAAAAAAS QUEEN So I was home alone a lot but it was okay Because I was used to it. I can cook myself some dinner and walk back and forth to school. I was a pretty responsible kid for my age. One night I was watching TV while eating ice cream. And someone knocked at the front door. I was wondering who it could be as my friends never came out this late And my mom would always use her key to get in. I opened the door. And it was a man standing there with his hands in his pockets. I said “Hello?” He replied; “Hello, young lady. Are your parents at home?” Stupidly, I said “No” “My mom isn’t home right now you have to come back tomorrow.” He then said with a surprised smile on his face “Oh, you’re all alone, huh?” I said, “Uhh yeah, I am.” He replied with “Okay young lady have a nice night. Don’t get into any trouble.” He then walked away and i closed the door. He seemed friendly, but also weird at the same time. He was a little funny looking though. He was balding and has 70’s styles glasses on (I hope i wrote it right lol) With a mustache and bags under his eyes like he never slept. About ten minutes pass, And there was another knock at the door. (knocking sounds) I got up to answer it. But before i opened the door something told me to put the chain on. I don’t know why. But my gut told me to do that. It was strange because we really didn’t use the chain. But I’m glad I did because as soon as I opened the door, It was pushed open. But arruptly stopped by the chain. Before i could even say or do anything I looked through the crack at the door to see the same man again. And he said in a startled voice “Oh..oh..oh hey there I just wanted to make sure you were okay.” As he stuttered. It was like he knew he failed getting inside of the house And tried to play off this any suspicion By speaking quickly and making it seem like he didn’t just obviously try coming into the house I said “I’m fine, thanks.” And I shut the door At that time I didn’t really understand the situation Or the dangerous of what just happened. But still, I was a bit freaked out And wanted my mom to come home soon. An hour went by And I was still thinking about what happened so I started to watch a movie Trying to keep my mind occupied. When I heard “Hey let me in quick. I gotta tell you something.” This was the scariest situation i’ve ever been in my life. It was the man once again he was talking through the letter box I shouted “Leave me alone!” The letter box closed. And the man started banging on the front door screaming “Let me in you little shit!” While slamming our front door handle up and down trying to get in. I just stood back crying, praying he doesn’t get in. He eventually gave up and left. My mom came home about thirty minutes later Just to find me crying. And I told her everything that happened. We told to police but they never found this guy. I look back And I think how grateful I am That I had the feeling to put the chain on the door. I hate to think what that man would have done If he had managed to get in.

10 Real Life Movie Monsters

February 22, 2020 | Articles | No Comments


10 Real Life Inspirations Behind Movie Monsters 10) Jigsaw
When the first draft of the first Saw was written, the whole movie was vastly different.
The setting was the same: two people wake up chained in a bathroom with a dead body
in the middle. But the idea of Jigsaw, the psychotic killer making people carry out horrible
tasks was completely absent. In fact, writer James Wan didn’t come up
with the character of Jigsaw until months later when he had a cancer scare. Wan convinced
himself that he had a brain tumour. He didn’t, but the fear made him start thinking: what
might a psychotic person do if he found out he had a terminal illness. For those of you who haven’t seen the film,
that’s basically exactly what happens to the main villain Jigsaw. Although he lasts
another 2 movies after the first, so presumably ol’ Jiggy wasn’t dying off too quickly. 9) Alien
Screenwriter Dan O’Bannon knew he wanted to make an alien horror movie. But beyond
that, he was struggling for inspiration. Then, one night, he had a dream. In it, an
alien jumped into an astronaut’s mouth and came bursting out of his chest. This became
the basis of the famous face-hugger and chest-bursting scenes in 1979’s Alien. But Dan and the crew still needed a LOOK for
the adult Xenomorph. You know, once it had finished taking a tour of John Hurt’s insides.
Plus just “a dream” isn’t really good enough for an entry around here. That’s when he found the work of H.R Giger.
Giger’s art is so explicit, I’m not sure how much we can even show you without getting
demonetised. Then again, knowing YouTube these videos of fluffy bunnies and puppies will
get us that golden dollar sign too. Regardless, the Swiss artist specialises in
illustrations that turn the intimate into the disturbing. And, with Dan already picking
the alien’s birth as a twisted take on pregnancy, it was a perfect fit. Eventually, Dan settled on Gieger’s illustration
Necronomicon IV as the basis for his alien and brought HR onto the film to help bring
it top the big screen. 8) The Pale Man
The Spanish Civil War was awful. Hot take, I know. But, from Orwell to Picasso, it’s
inspired some of the most famous feats creativity in history. And 2006’s Pan’s Labyrinth
is no different. Guillermo del Toro likes to shove weird creatures
into every film he makes. But Pan’s Labyrinth definitely has his most monstrous: hand-eye
coordination extraordinaire The Pale Man. The villain of the story, Pale Man doesn’t
just look horrible He also straight-up eats children. So it’s no surprise that he was
inspired by another famous scene of child-consumption: Saturn Eating His Son by Francisco Goya. In Roman myth, and greek myth since the Romans
basically just pinched all the Greek gods, Saturn is afraid of a prophecy claiming his
son will one day overthrow him. His does what any good parent would do and starts eating
his children. That story, and Goya’s horrifying depiction,
were the basis for del Toro’s own kid muncher. But it wasn’t the only inspiration. The
director also gave him a baggy, loose-skinned look because he had recently undergone some
serious weight loss and was conscious of all the loose skin he had. As for the eyes in the hands? No idea. 7) Chucky
Most children’s dolls are pretty awful, right? I’ll take a teddy bear over one of
those eerie dead-eyed nightmare machines any day. There’s a reason every fictional teddy bear
is an absolute chad. Meanwhile, dolls are always depicted as creepy murders. And perhaps
no evil doll is more famous, or more creepy, than Chucky. The main villain of the 8, yes 8, Chucky movies:
there’s some debate over what this demented doll was modelled after. Screenwriter Don
Mancini claims he based the description on the Cabbage Patch Kids. Meanwhile, director
Tom Holland, not that one, claimed he wanted them to look like the Hasbro’s My Buddy
toys. Which just goes to show, there are way too
many dolls creepy dolls out there. However, what’s certain is that Charles
Lee Ray, the serial killer whose soul has supposedly taken over Chucky, was named after
three famous killers: Charles Manson, Lee Harvey Oswald, and James Earl Ray. 6) Jeepers Creepers
The monster of the JC series is a… a… what even is that thing? Amphibian, jowly Van Helsing here is the main
villain of all three Jeepers Creepers films. But, wet, scaly Indiana Jones is actually
based on a real-life, human, murderer. You see, the first movie opens with two teenagers
driving past a church and accidentally seeing our boi yeeting a body into a bin. That scenario was based on the story of Dennis
Depue, a man looks exactly like the sort of man who’d kill his wife and, it turns out,
actually did. Denny D killed his wife Marylin and then dumped
her body in an animal behind a local schoolhouse in Coldwater, Michigan. Sidenote: there are only two pictures of this
dude on the entire internet. This picture. And this picture, which is just a cropped
version of the first picture. Two passersby in a car spotted him doing it
and were chased by Depue in his van, just like the movie. The difference is, in real
life the two escaped and alerted the local police. The police caught Depue who died in
a shootout. 5) Ursula
Just because she’s in a kids movie, doesn’t mean Ursula isn’t a great monster. She’s
an evil sea witch with tentacles. I know some corners of the internet are pretty fond of
tentacles, but to me, that’s pretty monstrous. Which is part of the reason it’s a little
odd to learn that she’s based on a real person. The artists behind the film revealed after
its release that they’d modelled their early Ursula sketchings off world-renowned drag
performer Divine. Yep, it turns out the sea queen was actually
a sea Queeeeeeeeeen. Everything from Ursula’s figure, to the
fact she somehow has perfect eyeshadow underwater, was modelled off Divine. Although I should
point out that it was just the look that they based on the performer. Divine didn’t spend
her spare time tricking mermaids and chatting with eels. And Ursula isn’t the only plus-sized bad
guy based on a real person. Slimy obese mob slug Jabba the Hutt was apparently based on
still obese, but decidedly less slimy, actor Sidney Greenstreet. Which, seems kinda harsh. 4) Jaws
Sticking under the sea, let’s talk about the monster so scary it ruined the beach for
an entire generation. Hitting cinemas in 1975 Jaws was an instant
success, with critics and audiences loving the excellent pacing, clever cinematography
and, of course, that famous theme tune we can’t play you without getting a copyright
strike. However, here’s what you get when you type “Jaws” into our royalty-free
music source… Hmm, not quite the same. Regardless, the famous fictional giant shark
was actually based on a real life… giant shark. Surprise surprise. In 1916, there was a series of shark attacks
on the Jersey Shore. 4 people were fatally chomped to pieces, and another dozen were
seriously injured in only two weeks: a huge number considering how rare shark attacks
actually are. These attacks started a national panic, with
the government being pressured into spending $120,000 on eradicating sharks from the area.
Thankfully if a shark tried to attack people on the Jersey Shore nowadays they’d be instantly
poisoned by the layers of spray tan and botox. Nonetheless, these shark attacks became the
basis for the star of one of the most famous summer blockbusters of all time. 3) Leatherface
The iconic murderer of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series is based loosely on the life
of 1950s serial killer Ed Gein. Gein is only confirmed to have killed two
people before he was caught. Which in terms of serial killer numbers is pretty low. Come
on mate, the Zodiac killer took out way more than that, and still found time to run for
President. Still, what Gein did with the bodies is pretty
top tier serial killer stuff. He liked to wear his victims. In fact, when police raided
his home they found bowls made from human skulls, masks made from skin, a belt made
from nipples, four noses just sitting around loose, and a lamp made out of someone’s
face. Gein’s unique eye for fashion caught the
attention of the world’s newspapers, becoming a huge story. Years later he would become
the basis for a huge number of film characters, including Norman Bates from Psycho and Buffalo
Bill from Silence of the Lambs. But the filmmakers behind Chainsaw Massacre
drew perhaps the clearest inspiration, with Leatherface using a chainsaw to cut up his
victims and wearing dismembered faces over his own. 2) Velociraptors
Yep, Steven Spielberg’s back. There’s a lot of dangerous dinos in Jurassic
Park. But no other inspires the same fear as the velociraptor. I mean, the T-Rex is
cool and all. But no predator that can be defeated by standing still is ever gonna be
that scary. Well, had the raptors been more realistic
they probably wouldn’t have been nearly as threatening. When writing the Jurassic Park book, Michael
Crichton’s description of the raptors was actually based on another dinosaur: Deinonychus.
That’s because he’d read, falsely, in a now-debunked scientific book that the velociraptor
was a subspecies of the Deinonychus. The Deinonychus was substantially bigger and
more reptilian than the raptor’s real look. Which is basically an evil turkey. By the time Speilberg made the movie, that
belief had been debunked. But Speilberg kept that look because, well, it’s just a lot
cooler isn’t it. 1) Hannibal Lector
Imagine being so creepy be around that someone who met you once, briefly, was so freaked
out he based a fictional serial killer on you. That’s how menacing Alfredo Balli Trevino
was. Trevino has the dubious honour of being the
man novelist Thomas Harris based world’s most well-read cannibal Hannibal Lector on. Harris visited the Monterrey Prison, in North
Mexico to research a story about another inmate: Dykes Andrew Simmons. While there he got talking
to Trevino, who was so eloquent and knowledgeable about medicine that Harris assumed he was
a prison doctor. Only later did he discover the good doctor was a former army surgeon
who’d been locked up for murdering and dismembering his lover. Harris was so struck by his meeting that he
wrote a Trevino-based character called Dr Hannibal Lector into his novel Red Dragon.
It was a hit, and the series continued with Silence of The Lambs and Hannibal. All three
were adapted into films with Antony Hopkins in
the Lector role.

I Date Two Brothers At The Same Time

I Date Two Brothers At The Same Time


Hello everyone, my name is Diana, I am 17
years old. Aaand… My parents kicked me out of the house recently
because of my unusual relationship… I have to warn you, this story is not for
people with high moral grounds… I was getting ready for College, hanging out
with friends sometimes, and the rest of my time was dedicated to instagram. That’s where I ran into the sweetest guy in
the world, named Zach. The name suited him very well, because he
looked like a young version of Zac Efron in his pics… Google him if you aren’t familiar. I liked him immediately, but I had too much
pride to text him first. Instead, I liked his photo and immediately
unliked it, and then did it over and over again. You know, women’s tricks… And just like I expected, a few minutes later,
he texted me. As a result, for the whole next week, we chatted
every day and every night, and after that we started going on dates. Even though he appeared to be a super-cool
guy, he also had a very caring and kind side in real life. The perfect guy, you know. Everything was going really well. But after a month of dating, Zach took me
to his house, where I met his twin brother named Luke… Since they were twins, he was just as hot
as Zach. Yes, they also had similar personality traits. The only difference between them was that
Luke completely ignored me… I mean, he’d say Hello and Goodbye, but otherwise
he was completely indifferent. And… Luke, the one who barely responded to me,
began to capture my attention even more than Zach… The more he ignored me, the more I wanted
to get his attention… I, obviously, tried to fight my attraction
to him, but I was failing at it. Of course, you can judge me, but as time went
on, I shamelessly fell in love with my boyfriend’s brother… There was one time at their house when Zach
was helping his dad in the garage, and I said I “had to use the restroom,” but I went
into Luke’s room instead and… Guess what I did? Just silently kissed him. This was part of my plan. By kissing him, I wanted to know if Luke had
any sort of feelings for me. To play it safe, after the kiss, I pretended
to be embarrassed, saying that I thought it was Zach. So even if Luke told Zach, I couldn’t be
blamed. But Luke didn’t say anything… In fact, later that night, after I got home,
Luke sent me a message… I was over the moon, because my plan had worked! In his message, Luke admitted that he had
liked me since the very start, and he just ignored me because I was his brother’s girlfriend. But after the kiss, he couldn’t hold himself
back anymore. Haha, I bet he couldn’t. Everything was happening exactly the way I
wanted it to. I admitted that I liked him too, so we agreed
that eventually, I would break up with Zach, and we would meet secretly before I did that… In a matter of weeks my life got extremely
crazy. During the day I was seeing one handsome man,
and at night, I was secretly seeing another. Of course I completely forgotten about College. I told Luke I’d break up with Zach, but man… I loved getting attention from both of them… Each of them was cool in their own way. Again, you can judge me, but come on, two
lovely Zac Efrons are better than one… Luke would ask me when I was going to leave
Zach every single day. He didn’t want to hide our relationship
anymore. But I kept putting it off. To be honest, I would have delayed it even
further, but all my secrets got revealed at one point. One night I invited Luke to my house. My parents knew I was dating Zach and they
also knew he had a twin brother. But when Luke arrived, they didn’t see the
difference. And it would have been fine if Zach hadn’t
decided to surprise me that night. It turns out it was our special day. Two months since we had first kissed. Who even remembers that?! Long story short, he brought me flowers and
my parents probably did not understand anything, but still let him in. Anyway, Zach caught Luke and I kissing. My dad barely managed to keep them from fighting
and get them out of the house. I was very worried that they could hurt each
other, but I had to stay, because my parents thought I owed them an explanation… Obviously, after they found out the truth,
they were not happy with me. But when I started all of this, I knew the
consequences it could lead to… Luke texted me saying that he and Zach had
had a big fight and that Zach didn’t want to talk to him anymore. Luke blamed me for that, like I should have
broken up with Zach a long, long time ago. He was right, of course, but what was done
was done. I texted Zach in order to apologize to him,
but unfortunately he ignored me as well. So as not to complicate anything, they didn’t
say anything to their parents, as I understood it. In General, after a couple of days of being
a little shocked, Luke and I still continued to meet. Just to remind you, I warned you that this
story is not necessarily for people of high moral standards. Now it was much easier to meet, because we
didn’t have to do it secretly anymore. Obviously we didn’t go to their house, but
we also tried to keep out of Zach’s sight, we still met openly. But in the end, us being open just made things
worse. You know, with Zach gone, Luke and I lost
that spark that was added by having to do everything in secret. At some point, I got bored, we began to hang
out less often, and arguments were a frequent thing. Once, when I was tired of the constant fighting,
I asked Luke if we could take a break in our relationship, but… He reacted very violently. He said that he would not let that happen,
because I made him fight with his own brother. And when I told him that I didn’t want to
see him anymore, he tried to lay his hands on me… He didn’t hit me, but I was still very scared. Of course, he immediately started to apologize,
but it was too late. Before that, I still had doubts about breaking
up with him, but after he did this, I was sure that it was not worth saving. I told him all of this. So he walked me home and apologized. But unlike in the beginning of the story,
when he ignored me, it was the other way around now. He was texting me, begging me to start over,
but I was already texting Zach. I told him I’d re-evaluated everything and
realized that I loved him and that I’d broken up with Luke for him. But he ignored me. It was very challenging (me not answering
Luke, and Zach not answering me) for quite some time. But one night, Zach felt sorry for me and
called. It wasn’t exactly the way I wanted it to be… On the phone, he said I was a total scam-artist
and that I didn’t deserve to be treated well… But he still loved me. Man, I really didn’t deserve that, so I spent
half of the night apologizing to him. We talked on the phone for about five hours,
but in the end, thankfully, we decided to get back together… Everyone should have a second chance. And thank God I got it. I was over the moon again. Zach and I were finally having a great time
together again. Luke texted me for a while, but then suddenly
stopped. I thought he was just backing down, but it
was more complicated than that… Once, when I was hanging out with Zach, I
suddenly realized that it was not quite Zach hanging out with me. Obviously the looks and the voice were very
similar, but I still had a feeling that something is off. To test my paranoia, I said “Hey, Luke” … And
he replied… I was shocked. It turned out that not only did Luke fool
me and pretend to be Zach, but it also turned out that Zach was in cahoots with him! Luke asked me to listen. But I was so angry, I just turned around and
walked away. I wrote an angry letter to Zach, saying that
if he wanted to punish me, he could’ve simply not agreed to get back together. I didn’t understand the need for this circus… Again, he didn’t reply to my messages all
day, but called me at night. Apparently that’s sort of his thing. He said he was really happy when I decided
to get back together with him, but he also felt very sorry for Luke. Zach had already been through our breakup,
and he knew how bitter it felt. So … They decided, to put it bluntly, to
share me… Of course, I got extremely offended. I’m not a thing, to be shared. But then it dawned on me that maybe this is
what I’ve been wanting all along… Two lovely Zac Efrons at the same time, but
this time everyone gives their full consent to this relationship… Well, it sounds a little crazy, even for the
21st century, but we agreed that I’m just polyamorous, and they both love me… It was definitely a perfect relationship… But it can’t be 100 percent good. Just like I said in the beginning. My parents found out about my unusual lifestyle,
but this time they could not accept it. They gave me a choice – family and a roof
above my head or Zach and Luke. Well … You know what I chose … We tried
to move things to the guys’ place, but my parents told their parents everything. They were unable to cope with our progressive
type of the relationship as well, so they told Zach and Luke the same thing… Ooh, how original!… But we did not panic. All of us had some savings, so we rented a
one-bedroom apartment and settled in there. At first it was difficult to find a job, but
the country needs waiters… I didn’t manage to go back to college yet,
as you understand, there was no time for it with the recent events. And also, my parents didn’t give me any
money for college. But at least I could be together with my dear
Zach and Luke. What else do I need? As I promised, this was a story with no morals. But if you liked it, be sure to leave a like
and write what you think about it in the comments.

The Tragic Real Life Story Of Sylvester Stallone Is Just Plain Sad


Is there a greater underdog story than that
of Rocky Balboa? Well, it turns out art only sort of imitates
life, because the creator and star of the storied Rocky franchise had an arguably way
rougher origin story than his titular character. This is Sylvester Stallone’s tragic real-life
story. Tough childhood Sylvester Stallone’s curled lip and vocal
delivery aren’t a tough guy act, they’re actually the result of a traumatic childbirth. According to the Chicago Tribune, an accident
during Stallone’s delivery resulted in a severed facial nerve, paralyzing part of his tongue
and chin. In addition to Sylvester Stallone’s traumatic
birth, the actor suffered a slew of medical problems throughout his early life. He got rickets as a young child and was heavily
bullied. He claimed his father was physically abusive. As a result, he’d act out in dangerous ways. By the time Stallone was 12 years old, he’d
been kicked out of 13 schools and broken 11 bones. When he was 15, Stallone says that he was
told his brain was “dormant,” so he started bodybuilding. Six years before Rocky, Sylvester Stallone
was sleeping at the Port Authority and struggling with acting work and menial jobs. Translation: He was broke. As such, he told Playboy that in 1970, he
starred in a softcore film called Party at Kitty and Stud’s, although he says that by
today’s standards it would likely get a PG rating. He said: “It was either do that movie or rob someone
because I was at the end, at the very end, of my rope. Instead of doing something desperate, I worked
two days for $200 and got myself out of the bus station.” Ultimately, the flick was never released,
according to Stallone. However, after the success of Rocky, Stallone
was offered the opportunity to buy the rights to it for $100,000, presumably to prevent
its release. But Stallone recalled, “I wouldn’t buy it for two bucks, and my lawyer
told them to hit the pike.” While filming Rocky IV, Dolph Lundgren almost
knocked Sylvester Stallone out for good. Stallone recalled to press at the Cannes Film
Festival that the Swedish karate master-turned-action star was almost too perfect, causing Stallone
to loathe him at first sight. That worked really well for the movie, since
these two guys were supposed to hate each other. But it didn’t create a lot of harmony on the
set, to the point that Stallone finally told Lundgren to just hit him for real and try
to knock him out. “‘I sorta know what you’re gonna do, but really
cut loose as hard as you can.’ That was a really stupid thing to say.” According to Stallone, Lundgren took his words
to heart, he really went for it, and the resulting punch almost stopped Sly’s heart and sent
him straight to the hospital. “Next thing I know, I’m on a low-altitude
plane to the emergency room, I’m serious! And I’m in intensive care for four days.” Stallone detailed the incident to People in
1985: He was airlifted to St. John’s Hospital in Los Angeles, where he was diagnosed with
a bruised heart, but his issues started earlier: He said months before Lundgren’s big blow,
he “felt something snap” while filming a training scene in Wyoming. He would later say he felt like he got hit
by, quote, “a streetcar named Drago.” “I must break you.” On the bright side, Lundgren and Stallone
remain close despite the near-manslaughter. Lundgren told The New York Post, “I was actually pretty surprised at how well
Sly could fight. I fought for real and had to learn how to
fake it! He was really committed.” It just goes to prove that you don’t mess
with chemical engineers. “Because I’m just too powerful.” of Sylvester Stallone’s son, Seargeoh. But when the toddler was diagnosed with the
disorder, it was incredibly difficult on the actor and his then-wife, Sasha. The estranged couple told People in 1985 that
they dealt separately with their son’s struggles, with Sasha shouldering most of the responsibilities
for the boy while Stallone worked. Stallone was heartbroken at what he felt was
an inability to connect with Seargeoh, explaining: “There is no real father-and-son thing there. I have to become his playmate. With a child like this you have to put away
your ego. You can’t force him into your world. I sort of go along with whatever he is doing.” The actor said that he doted extra on elder
son Sage, in part because he wasn’t able to bond as well with Seargeoh. Sylvester Stallone’s eldest son, Sage, with
whom he was rather close, died at just 36 years old in July 2012. Sage reportedly passed away from a heart condition
called atherosclerosis, in which cholesterol and fats block arteries, and restricts blood
flow. The cardiovascular disease caused Sage to
suffer a heart attack, which ultimately ended his life, CNN reported. Even more heartbreaking, in addition to suffering
the death of his son, Sylvester also had to cope with media speculation that Sage was
on drugs at the time of his passing, allegations that turned out to be unfounded. Sage had a promising future and even appeared
in a few of his dad’s films, including Rocky V and Daylight, and was engaged to be married
at the time of his sudden death. Sylvester said in a heart wrenching statement: “[W]hen a parent loses a child there is no
greater pain. Therefore I am imploring people to respect
my wonderfully talented son’s memory and feel compassion for his loving mother, Sasha, because
this agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives. Sage was our first child and the center of
our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.” Sylvester Stallone had a contentious relationship
with his half-sister Toni Filiti for decades. Page Six reported that, quote, “at the height
of [Stallone]’s fame,” the actor, producer, and screenwriter “reached a confidential multi-million
dollar settlement” with his half-sister that sources described as a “shakedown.” In 1987, Stallone reportedly agreed to give
Filiti just over $16,600 monthly for the duration of her life, plus a lump payment of $2 million
and “a trust of $50,000 per year for medical and psychiatric expenses.” She accused Stallone of, quote, “personal
injury, including physical injury,” which he denied. Stallone’s mother, Jackie, told the tab, “This was nothing more than a shakedown. Toni-Ann was on 65 Oxycontin pills a day,
and she threatened Sylvester. A drug addict will do anything. When Sylvester became famous, she didn’t have
to hook. He was trying to help her. He caved in.” She added, “There were too many conflicting stories…At
the time he was very hot, and his lawyers said, ‘Give her something just to shut her
up.'” Toni passed away in August 2012 at just 48
years old after a battle with lung cancer, Radar Online reported. Her death came just a month after Stallone’s
son, Sage, passed away. In October 2012, just months after the tragic
deaths of his son and sister, Sylvester Stallone learned that his daughter, Sophia Stallone,
would have to undergo heart surgery that December. Sophia underwent her first cardiac operation
as an infant to correct a heart malformation. The procedure was successful, but she required
a heart valve procedure at 16. It turned out well, but her father was understandably
heartbroken. Stallone’s wife, Jennifer Flavin, said of
Sophia, “She is the one that most resembles her father. Like him she has read nearly all of Shakespeare’s
books. They have a very special bond, they think
alike and even have the same gestures, Sophia is the love of his life.” She added of her husband: “This is a terrible year, a horrible year
for him. Sylvester is devastated, but he refuses to
talk about his son.” Thankfully, all turned out well. Sophia graduated from the University of Southern
California in May 2019, where she studied communications with a minor in entrepreneurship
and film. Tragic luck with pets If Sylvester Stallone’s Instagram is anything
to go by, the guy is a massive dog lover. But the family suffered another tragedy in
2013, when their beloved family dog was killed by a coyote. TMZ reported that the pooch, named Phoebe,
went missing in the Stallones’ Bel Air, California, neighborhood. The family was so desperate to get her back
that they hung up posters and even offered a $10,000 reward for her return…only for
her to turn up dead on their own property. Stallone’s rep said Phoebe’s death was “very
difficult” for the brood. Phoebe’s untimely passing wasn’t the only
heartache Stallone suffered with a pet. Before hitting it big with Rocky, a cash-strapped
Stallone tried to sell his beloved bull mastiff, Butkus, for $100. “And tried to sell my dog, because it was
either do that or he was just not going to be very well fed around the house.” As if that’s not tragic enough, he could only
get $50 for his four-legged best friend. Stallone told ShortList that when he sold
the script for his boxing blockbuster, he asked to buy Butkus back from the man who
purchased the dog, a person named Jimmy, who refused. Stallone came out victorious…after he paid
Jimmy $3,000 and gave him a bit part in the film. That may seem like a lot, but it must have
been a small price to pay to be reunited with his four-legged friend. In 2016, Sylvester Stallone nearly lost his
then-19-year-old half-brother in a vicious attack. According to TMZ, Dante Stallone was near
campus at Florida State University when two other men brutally beat him. Dante, who was on his way back from a late
night Taco Bell run at the time of the attack, was injured so badly that Page Six reported
his roommates had to call 911 for him because he had “difficulty speaking.” A police report obtained by the outlet also
didn’t indicate a clear motive, and stated that Dante didn’t know his assailants. Dante reportedly suffered “a split palate,”
“shattered jaw,” and extensive dental damage, including “broken and knocked out teeth,”
per TMZ. He had to be hospitalized for several weeks,
and underwent reconstructive surgery. Sylvester told the tab: “This is a wonderful young man, a straight-A
student who would not cause any trouble. It’s just so tragic and terribly sad.” Sylvester Stallone made a ton of money from
the Rocky franchise, but still may have gotten a raw deal, especially considering that he
created the whole thing. Stallone told Variety that he raked in about
$2.5 million for Rocky in 1976. When you break down the numbers, he got $25,000
for the screenplay, then $360 per week of filming for the 25-day shoot. He explained to the magazine: “Luckily there were the WGA minimums. I made about $2,000 for acting.” Most of Stallone’s pay for his breakout hit
came from his 10 “net points,” or his shares on the net profits. He made $75,000 for Rocky II in 1979 and $120,000
plus millions in net points for Rocky III just a few years later in 1982. However, Stallone says he could have made
a lot more, and he’s spent years harboring some resentment over not having any rights
in the franchise. He claimed: “I have zero ownership of Rocky. Every word, every syllable, every grammatical
error was all my fault. It was shocking that it never came to be,
but I was told, ‘Hey, you got paid, so what are you complaining about?’ I was furious.” When asked why he didn’t pursue the franchise
rights more tenaciously, Stallone told Variety that even his own attorney suggested the fight
wasn’t worth it, no doubt tough words to hear for the man who poured so much of himself
into the Rocky story. He explained: “I never really pushed it, and by the time
we got around to Rocky Balboa I was in a pretty weak position to say anything. I was in a slump, and it was pretty intense.” A Rocky producer insisted to Variety that
the star, quote, “made money from every angle, and still does.” Stallone even confessed that while the system
has made sure that his kids and grandkids are well taken care of, he still feels like,
