This Teen Jumped Into Croc-Infested Waters To Impress A Girl

"Haters gonna hate."

I am absolutely in awe at the balls that Lee De Paauw has. This kid jumped into crocodile infested waters to impress a girl, and what happened? Yup, the crocodile got him, and he somehow survived. Check this out:

Honestly, good for him. Is he an absolute idiot? 100000000 percent. However, there are countless teens out there (including myself) sitting at home praying for a text back from a girl, on the off chance that maybe she thinks I'm somewhat funny.

Meanwhile, Big Balls McLoverboy over here is taking action right in front of her face, basically saying, "If I'm crazy enough to knowingly get my arm almost chewed off by a crocodile, you definitely don't want me crazy texting you at 3 a.m."

Say what you will, but it worked. they're going on a date. This kid is about to crush it too.

The Disappointing Truth For The Girl Hoping to be Asked Out

Ladies, it's actually your move...but you won't always be rewarded for making it.

No one wants to be rejected. Especially her. Not saying that guys will take "no" to a date with a grain of salt; the hurt feelings are real for them, too. But girls can typically find themselves submerged in emotional wreckage.

Even in modern society, where gender norms have supposedly become less restricting, the social expectation for a guy to ask a girl out on a date, and not the other way around, still has a strong presence. And college campuses are no exception.

No one wants to admit it, but it's there. And because this norm exists, college girls find themselves guided into an unwelcoming position. Picture a girl excessively paining herself over whether or not the cute guy from chemistry lab likes her back. But you're not allowed to ask him. You can propose a study hangout, but he's supposed to ask you to dinner or ask you on an official date.

Young women can easily fall victim to overanalyzing and overreacting every social interaction with their crush. Suddenly, this state of uncertainty has put all the power in the hands of the guy, who should not be this important of a part in your life.

Burdened by a similar boy-involved anxiety, I decided to screw the social expectation and take matters into my own hands. I asked a guy out whom I had become close with over the duration of the past semester; at the time, we were just friends.

First off, let me say that it's not a lie when the Internet tells you that guys do like when girls can ask them out. Making that first move is courageous and respectable. After all, he may just be too shy to ask you- - maybe because he's unsure if the both of you have mutual feelings for each other.

It was a daunting task, even when I was confident he would say yes. Some of my closest friends also fully supported my decision and shared my hopes with zero doubt.

He said no.

No more mind tricks; it was made painfully clear. At first, my mind was only stuck on, "Where did I go wrong?" After all, I thought I'd made good efforts to show my potential interest in something more, and I thought he had responded encouragingly. Also, a quiet, polite guy saying "no" is never in the script. But I soon realized that was just another social expectation I had: the expectation that nice guys don't turn girls down.

Unknowingly, I created an expectation when I thought I was only breaking one down.

So ladies, you may not get the answer you want to hear. But don't ever let that stop you from taking control of any desired potential romantic relationships, as long as those feelings are real. In hindsight, I don't regret a single moment of that decision to ask a guy out. Because I might've otherwise spent an entire semester anxiously and eagerly awaiting a date invitation that would never come.

Gael Monfils Jumped Over A Tennis Ball, And Now He's My Hero

Tennis player or kangaroo?

Last night, Gael Monfils jumped over a tennis ball.

You might be thinking to yourself, "Wait a second, I'm no tennis expert, but I don't think that's how the sport is normally played!" And, fellow non-tennis-expert, you would be very correct.

But look how fun this is and tell me if you think tennis should have...
A. More jumping
B. Less jumping
C. The answer is definitely more jumping

Yeah, tennis should absolutely have more jumping.

Monfils, 30, is the No. 11 in the world according to the ATP rankings, and this is just one example of why folks enjoy watching him: Monfils has long been known for his animated playing style.

He stands 6-foot-4 and weighs a paltry 180 pounds, meaning he is basically Gumby with a tennis racket: everything he does kind of looks super wild, his limbs flailing about and his long legs stretching to reach otherwise unreachable shots from his opponents.

I don't know a whole ton about tennis, but the game always benefits when Monfils does things like this and makes the game both impressive, athletically, and also super fun to watch. There's definitely a dividing line between impressive technical play and super-fun, everyone-can-enjoy-this fun play. Monfils happens to know how to get the best from both sides, which is entertainment gold when it works.

Two Teens Attempt To Kill Girl Who Was Annoying On Snapchat

This is a little funny (it's not funny).

In Utah (so who cares) two teens attempted to murder a girl who they claim was messaging them too much on Snapchat. AmericaNow reports that the initial plan was to lure the girl to a canal and slit her throat, but they couldn't go through with it.

Then, they lured her back to the canal another day, and when they decided they couldn't go through with it again, one of the boys brought a gun, shot her in the head, and left her for dead. Luckily, she survived.

First of all, how the fuck do you get lured to a sketchy canal twice? That part is on you, sweetie. It's like a teacher telling you there's gonna be something important to hear in class on Friday, and you don't go, and there's a pop quiz, and the next time they say those exact words, you still don't go and fail another pop quiz. This part is solely on you.

Second, HOLY FUCK THEY WERE GONNA SLIT THIS GIRL'S THROAT. That is some cold blooded shit, even for a Snapchat annoyance. Admittedly, I'm not as surprised because it took place in Utah, and who knows what kind of psychopaths are out there, but either way teens slitting throats is nightmare fuel.

To play devil's advocate, though, girls who are annoying on Snapchat are the absolute worst. Seeing their name pop up on your phone 10 different times a day, with some stupid filter on their face, a meme that you've already seen (girls are horrendous at keeping up with memes), or just a picture of nothing is a waste of your time. Knowing they're teens and probably obsessed with Snapchat means this girl must've been over the top with it.

Ginger Attempts to Steal Your Soul With Song (Video)


To many people's dismay, Natasha Bedingfield created one of the most instantly recognizable and hauntingly annoying pop tunes of the 21st century, which was the perfect song choice by one ginger teen to make everyone at a red light around him uncomfortable.

This rad dude is caught on camera sing-yelling the catchy hit at a passerby out of a moving car window. We're not quite sure what to make of him, but maintaining eye contact for 14 seconds while he's screeching "REACHING FOR SOMETHING IN THE DISTANCE SO CLOSE YOU CAN ALMOST TASTE IT" is one daunting and hilarious task.

I wonder what Lauren Conrad thinks of his rendition.
