  • ‘Alcoholic Tide Pods’: Everyone is very confused about the newest way to drink whisky

    They’re wrapped in seaweed. They’re filled with whisky. And they’re drawing a collective groan from the Internet, thanks to their suspicious resemblance to a laundry detergent pack turned meme turned public health hazard. That’s right: They’re alcoholic Tide Pods. Well, sort of. In what is either a highly successful marketing scheme or an inadvertent attempt to launch itself into millennial relevancy, a 195-year-old single-malt Scotch whisky distillery has rolled out three kinds of limited-edition “glass-less cocktails,” available through Sunday at a posh London bar. These alcoholic amuse-bouche pouches provide “the perfect flavour-explosion experience,” the Glenlivet claims. But, as hundreds of...
  • Video: NEVER Pay Full Price for Tide Pods

    VIDEO Perhaps the easiest products to get a great deal on are Tide Pods. Why? Because they are frequently on sale and because they frequently have high value coupons available which are often online which you can print out. In this demonstration, I show how I combined a sale with a coupon that I printed out. I made this purchase on Friday evening but the next morning I repeated the same process again the next day to get a second bag of Tide Pods at the same price which came to about 75% off the original retail price.
  • Greeley King Soopers moves Tide Pods away from candy aisle following concern

    The King Soopers on 35th Avenue near Greeley West High School will no longer stock its Tide Pods near the colorful candy following recent concern. Store management on Sunday removed an aisle end cap stocked with the bright, aromatic detergent packs and other laundry items that was connected to an aisle filled with popcorn, chocolate bars, M&M’s, Reese’s and other delicious goodies — which Tide Pods are not supposed to be. Similar household products are a couple aisles away from the sweets. Earlier this year the “Tide Pod challenge,” where teens filmed themselves biting into the plastic bubbles filled with...

    DETROIT (WJBK) - A 12-year-old girl from Detroit is in the hospital recovering from severe burns after taking part in a disturbing trend called the Fire Challenge. "I can't help my baby. I can't help her," said Brandi Owens. Brandi is trying to be strong, but can't bear seeing her daughter bandaged from head-to-toe and in intensive care with burns over 49 percent of her body. Timiyah Landers and her two girlfriends were hanging out at her Detroit home on Friday after mother Brandi made them pancakes and went to take a nap. Minutes later, Brandi said she heard a...
  • Poll Finds 57% of Millennials Don’t Even Know Roe v. Wade is About Abortion

    With the talk of pro-life U.S. Supreme Court nominees and Roe v. Wade potentially being overturned, it is important to actually know what the landmark abortion case is about. And there are strong indications that many do not. A Democratic pollster recently pointed out that most millennials do not know what Roe v. Wade is about, or when abortion was legalized. “Millennials think that Roe v. Wade happened right after the American Revolution,” Celinda Lake, president of Lake Research, said on a Friday episode of “What America’s Thinking,” a show on Hill.TV about polls and public opinion. Furthermore, a 2013...
  • Why are deaths among U.S. kids, teens on the rise?

    CBS News ^ | June 1, 2018 | Dennis Thompson
    A perfect storm of murder, addiction and carelessness has fueled a recent and troubling increase in deaths among U.S. children and teens, a new government report shows. The total death rate for those aged 10 to 19 rose 12 percent between 2013 and 2016, mostly due to an increase in deaths from accidental injury, homicide and suicide, researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. In short, the United States is becoming less safe for teenagers. The primary causes of injury deaths were motor vehicle accidents, suicide, firearms-related murders and drug overdoses, the report discovered. "For children...

    As some of you know, I have sort of a reputation for finding great deals. Anyway, one open "secret" is that Walmart has become very competitive with Amazon. Now, I am not crazy about shopping at Walmart on weekends (and I don't need to tell you what a nightmare that can be) but I have gotten a lot of great deals where I merely walk into the front of the store on weekdays and pick up stuff I ordered online. Well, right now they have a great deal where you don't even need to go to the store and you...

He’s feeling under siege, you know, because those mean ol’ people in the fake news media are mounting the fakest of all fake scandals against his company, all because he shared 50 million customers’ data – you know, the Facebook business model – with a company that did work for the (gasp!) evil Donald Trump campaign!

    The idea of ingesting a Tide Pod used to be a little bit funny. For example, when The New York Daily News printed a comment from Senator Chuck Schumer under a rudely ageist headline in September 2012. He had recently been informed that 40 children in New York City had eaten Tide Pods and received medical attention for eating Tide Pods in the preceding five months. And he said, mostly unprovoked, “I saw one on my staffer’s desk and I wanted to eat it.” It’s good in print and it’s better out loud. “I saw one on my staffer’s desk...
  • Billionaire Bill Gates has no idea how commoners spend their money

    02/22/2018 10:33:47 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 43 replies
    It’s been awhile since billionaire Bill Gates had to grocery shop among us plebs, so you’ll forgive him if he’s a little disconnected from the price of common items. The Microsoft co-founder appeared on “Ellen” yesterday, where the daytime host had him guessing costs of supermarket sundries like Rice-a-Roni, pizza rolls and forbidden snack-du-jour Tide Pods. SNIP Gates pegged Rice-a-Roni at $5 (it’s $1). He thought a container of Tide Pods cost $4. Please, it’s $19.97. After guessing an exorbitantly high cost for Totino’s Pizza Rolls, the audience took pity on him and pointed him to a more on-the-nose answer...

    I am worried that Republicans in Congress have been eating Tide Pods lately. Tide Pods can kill you and Republicans are in the process of killing the Republican Party with this latest budget agreement. There is no other explanation.What else explains the irrational and liberal policies that Republicans pushed in the latest budget agreement? This agreement is a complete sell-out of the pillar of the 2016 Republican Party platform, which reads in part:“Our national debt is a burden on our economy and families. The huge increase in the national debt demanded by and incurred during the current Administration has placed a...

    New York state lawmakers want Tide to stop making its pods look so appealing. Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas and Sen. Brad Hoylman proposed a bill Tuesday that would require Proctor & Gamble to individually wrap each pod and add warning labels to them, reports NBC New York. The lawmakers also want the pods to be made less colorful, claiming that their bright colors “can make them appealing to young children, adults with dementia, and those looking to take part in the internet trend known as ‘Tide Pod Challenge.’ That said, don’t expect a change anytime soon. Proctor & Gamble responded to...
