Shakespeare was a Stoner
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears...In a new discovery 400-year-old tobacco pipes excavated that were from the garden of William Shakespeare were found to contain cannabis. So, to put it bluntly... Shakespeare was a stoner. The scientists at the Evolutionary Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand, tested 24 fragments of pipe loaned from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and cannabis was found in eight samples, four of which came from Shakespeare's property. Now, the question we are all thinking: Did the weed have an influence on this sensational playwright’s work? With a list of stoner creatives (George Washington, Queen Elizabeth, basically all of ancient Greece) in the history books, this is just another one to add to the inventory of. Stoners of the world: You can now use “Shakespeare did it so now I can too! Not all stoners are bums and losers. This guy was the most successful playwright of all time.” As another excuse to your mom, dad, or anyone else for that matter. And you’ll start writing all the best plays. Including, but not limited to: Twelfth Night Faded A Midsummer Night's Taco Run Much Ado About Doing Nothing The Dealer of Venice Alls Well That Ends Weed Ok, that last one was pretty bad, but you get it. Or maybe soon you’ll start crafting your own sonnets: “Shall I compare thee to a giant bag of chips, or some Chicken McNuggets... thou art more lovely and temperate...” (Please note: I’m not condoning illegal behavior. If you don’t smoke, that’s cool too dude. You could be next Shakespeare without the added doobie. Just maybe it won’t be as fun.)
YouTuber Films Suicide Victim, Doesn't Get Why His Jokes Arent Funny
[tw: mentions suicide] This is Logan Paul, YouTuber and brother of Jake Paul and equally influential YouTuber. He has over 15 million subscribers and makes videos about pranks, extreme sports, and basically living off of all the money he makes. Most of his fans are under the age of 17. He has been posting a video every single day for over a year and plenty have been controversial (one of his most successful videos is when he reacts to seeing color for the first time, but then he later admitted that he lied about being color blind) This week though, even his fans have said he has gone too far. He is currently in Japan and making videos about his trip, but he and his friends headed to Aokigahara, also known as Japan's suicide forest. It's the most popular place to tortured people to end their lives. It is known for its beauty so people do go there just to see the nature, but they went into the restricted section. They go on a visit to the forest intending to focus on the "haunted" aspect of it, he says in the video. After walking a short distance into the forest, the group come across a body. The group is filmed approaching the body, which is shown in several close-ups where only the face is blurred out. A member of the group is heard off camera saying he "doesn't feel good". Paul then asks him: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" He then laughs. He then took the time to pose with the man (who is revealed to have just died a few hours before due to the color of his body) in order to get the perfect thumbnail and then posted it on his channel. This is literally what the thumbnail image was: It got over 6 million views. Later in the video they joked that YouTube wouldn't put ads on a video with a dead guy so they might as well take sake shots too (YT has a new strict algorithm about what kind of content can make money and obviously suicide isnt one of them) After the video got a ton of criticism, he took the video down and issued this half ass apology: He later posted a video apology but come on. This is just disgusting. I am so sorry to the family of that victim and to anyone who has been affected by suicide. There is NO excuse for what he did. If it was a live stream and an accident I could understand if he was overwhelmed, forgot to turn the camera off, etc. But this was filmed, edited, and uploaded. He zoomed in and took from different angles. He posed for pictures with the body. He is trash.
