Relateable Content On The Internet Has Gotten Out Of Control

Relateable Content On The Internet Has Gotten Out Of Control

There's more to internet comedy than just terrible memes.


Have you ever seen an ad for shirts with really specific quotes on them? They normally go something like this; "beautiful women are only born in October with red hair and brown eyes and are named Bethany." I always thought those were just clickbait ads until I assisted a customer who was wearing a shirt just like that.

Relatable content used to be alright; memes about being stressed over school work and relationships. We shared memes like, "that feeling when..." and "you know you're a [insert occupation here] when...", but now it seems like relatable content is scraping the bottom of the barrel. I've recently been seeing posts, specifically on Facebook, that go something like; "I have the most beautiful son in the world, bet most of y'all can't steal this status." I mean, do you see the issue here? Literally, every mother thinks her son is gorgeous. All the original poster wants is for their status to be shared, and people give into it.

I've seen this status a lot, and the topics seem to get weirder. The people who create these statuses will write absolutely anything that applies to most if not all people and then challenges them to share it. These read like an early 2012 meme, and I thought we'd get past that by now.

On top of that, people are still sharing photos of sad-looking animals with the caption, "people tell me I'm ugly, share if you think I'm cute!" What's the point of that? Absolutely no one said the animal in the photo was ugly! If that wasn't enough, people are STILL circulating memes with the iconic "1 like = 1 prayer" caption. I think we've established that liking a status doesn't equal religious points. If you want to pray for something, then do it!

The last thing that drives me absolutely insane is the terrible skits people post to Facebook. I don't know why, but they're normally extremely misogynistic with hints of racism. These skits normally revolve around a girl with a nice butt and all the guys have to gawk at it. Maybe one of them will slap it, it normally depends on the plot, if I could even call it that. Other times it's a skit about cheating or stealing someone's girl. It's a conscious decision on my part not to include one of these videos in this article because I genuinely don't think these awful videos deserve any more views. My point is, they're not funny, and the only Facebook friends of mine that share them are frustrated guys from high school that never really had much luck with the ladies and feel as though these skits speak to them.

With all the great, creative humor out there, it boggles my mind that people on Facebook still resort to memes that were retired six years ago. It wasn't funny then, and it sure isn't funny now. To Facebook users that find this kind of stuff enjoyable, expand your horizons! There are other ways to let your friends know that your son is handsome and that you enjoy looking at the physique of women.

5 Reasons Why Your Business Needs to Set Up a Computer Network

Set Up a Computer Network

Many small businesses avoid setting up a computer network, because they consider the setup to be something hi-tech that they don’t actually need. This is not at all true. A business can benefit tremendously by having office workstations connected. And on the cost front too, the expenditure will be minimal. Below, we take a look at five ways a computer network will help you improve the efficiency in your business operations.

Equipment Sharing

Using a centralized computer networking system, you can share components like computers, printers and scanners. As such, you don’t need to purchase extra equipment. For example, if people in your office only use their computer for a few hours during the day, you don’t have to buy individual computers for every one of them. Instead, you only need to purchase one computer for 2 or 3 people. You can then set up a network and enable employees to login and use any computer while maintaining the privacy of their documents. Plus, if you decide to procure computers through the refurbished IT gear option, you can cut down on investment costs even more.

Easy Remote Access

Ever faced a situation where you wanted to access or edit some business files from home but could not because the file is stored on the office computer? Setting up a computer network is the solution for such issues. Since the data will always be online, you can easily access it from your home computer or laptop while travelling. Plus, the remote access feature also gives you the option to allow employees to work from home.

Efficient Collaboration

There are many collaboration tools available that can make working on a computer network far more productive. For example, a single Word document can be accessed and edited by multiple people at the same time. As such, a supervisor can change and correct the errors in a document from New York while the employee can watch the changes being made from the office in Boston. If your business involves a high level of team activities, then a computer network is a must.

Simple File Sharing

By setting up a computer network, you can easily share data with all members of your organization. You don’t have to waste time copying the files to a USB or burning it on a DVD. Once you upload the required files to the central server, you only have to share the link to team members and they can access it from any device, anywhere in the office or home. And by setting up restrictions on who can access the files, you can ensure that the data is only viewed by the people you want.

Set Up Centralized Applications

Install a single application on the server for everyone in your business to be able to use it. As such, you can avoid wasting time setting up or updating business apps on each computer. Instead, just update the application on the server, and every employee will be using the updated version instantly. Plus, many applications have discounted pricing for network editions.

For a company with an employee count of 10 or more, a computer network will definitely increase the productivity and efficiency of the business. Get in touch with the nearest IT firm to understand how setting up a computer network can specifically help your business.

15 Totally creepy things Girls Do When They're Totally Obsessed With Their Crush

Honestly we could work for the FBI.


Ladies, we've all been there a time or two, whether we were stalking guy we liked or stalking a guy for a friend. That's just what girls do, we low-key stalk guys. It's in our DNA, sugar, spice and stalking. We are practically the FBI in training, so here are 15 creepy things all girls do when stalking a boy.

1. Make a fake profile and add him on all his social media.

You use a common name and a some random picture of a group of girls that you found on Tumblr for the profile picture.

2. Go through his following/followers and stalk their pages.

If they aren't private its fair game to see what he's commented on or liked, if they're private...well wait for the next point.

3. Have their friends follow the girls that are active on his profiles.

By active, I mean girls that are tagged in his pictures, girls that tag him in things, girls that comment on his posts, and girls that he's friends with.

4. Check to see who's pictures he's been liking and commenting on.

Instagram lets you see what your friends have liked, and you can go through peoples twitter likes.

5. Check his following/followers daily.

You have got to see if more girls have followed him or if he followed more girls.

6. Make fake Tinder profile to see if he's on there.

You can adjust the age and distance to help you find him faster.

7. Search his name on a people search website.

I'm not going to tell the name of the website I use, but they're out there and they work. They work so much that they tell you their address and any previous addresses they've lived at, family members, and any phone numbers that have been connected to them.

8. Drive by their house.

I mean you have their address so why not right? You get a friend and you do it either in the middle of the day or in the middle of the night, there's a less chance of being caught.

9. Call the numbers that the website said were connected to him.

Obviously use *67 and block your number.

10. Stalk his family members social media profiles.

You can learn a lot from what their family decides to share with the world, like I don't know, maybe that their church also does mass in Portuguese ;) and where their family members work.

11. Look up his house on Zillow.

Even if it's not for sale it'll come up, and you'll learn when it was last sold, for how much, how many rooms there are, if they have central air, heat and blah blah blah. But that might not give you 100% of the truth, it says my house is one floor when it's two plus a finished basement.

12. Check his Snapchat location.

Obviously on a fake Snapchat, and if he's at the club, girl you can show up looking hot.

13. Go to his job, or drive by it to see if he's there.

Depending on where he works you can go in. He works at the gym, boom get a membership. He has an office job, you can always drive by. Also, sidenote, you should know where he works because it's probably on his Facebook and Tinder.

14. Follow his friends on social media.

His friends will most likely post something like Instagram pictures or Snapchats of what they were doing.

15. Screenshot everything for the group chat.

Every girl has a group chat with a few close friends and of course you got them involved in your stalking, so you all have to discuss what you found out and what you think it means.
