A Man Lives in the Woods For 10 Years to Get Away From His Wife

This might be THE most extreme passive-aggressive way anyone’s ever gotten out of a bad marriage.

A little over a decade ago, a guy in his early 50s named Malcolm Applegate from Hampshire, England was finally OVER his wife nagging him.

So . . . he disappeared.  Literally.  One day he vanished, and no one heard from him again for a decade.

But he recently turned up again at a center called Emmaus Greenwich that helps homeless people get back on their feet.

It turns out Malcolm hated his marriage so much that he’d been living in the WOODS for 10 years.  It was right next to a community center for senior citizens, and he worked there as a gardener . . . but then, at night, he went back to the woods.

Eventually Malcolm heard about Emmaus and decided to head there to interview.  He moved in, and now at age 62 he’s putting his life back together, which included getting back in touch with his sister who figured he was dead.

But, as far as we know, he has NOT gotten back in touch with his wife.

Starbucks Is Rumored to Be Planning a Zombie Frappuccino For Halloween

If this rumor is true it’s pretty much GUARANTEED to be the biggest Instagram trend on Halloween.

According to some photos that have been leaked by Starbucks baristas around the country, Starbucks is planning to sell a ZOMBIE FRAPPUCCINO from October 26th through Halloween.  There’s no official word yet, though . . . just these rumors.

But if the rumors are true, the Zombie Frappuccino will be made with green apple powder, with pink whipped cream on top to look like “brains” and a pink mocha drizzle.

A Study Finds People Mainly Go Places to Get Likes on Their Photos

You might be able to get some Instagram likes if you post a selfie of you at home with a pizza watching TV on a Saturday night.  But if that’s the ONLY type of picture you ever post, those likes are going to dry up.

So, sadly, this makes sense.  A new study out of the University of Georgia found that 86% of people say they’re motivated to go places to get a “social return” . . . in other words, likes on their photos or videos on social media.

It’s not clear from the study if people ONLY go on trips because they want social media validation . . . but it’s definitely a GIGANTIC factor.
