Quordle today: Here are the answers and hints for November 20

Sunday Quordles are, all things considered, the most relaxing Quordles of all. For most of us, Sunday is when we're furthest from the workweek, and Sunday comes with a rich tradition of lounging around the house, reading the paper slowly and doing puzzles. An extra hard puzzle can be an added bonus, but it can also add frustration to an otherwise enjoyable day.

Quordle today: Here are the answers and hints for November 20(图1)

If Quordle is a little too challenging today, you've come to the right place for hints. There aren't just hints here, but the whole Quordle solution. Scroll to the bottom of this page, and there it is. But are you sure you need all four answers? Maybe you just need a strategy guide. Either way, scroll down, and you'll get what you need.

What is Quordle?

Quordle is a five-letter word guessing game similar to Wordle, except each guess applies letters to four words at the same time. You get nine guesses instead of six to correctly guess all four words. It looks like playing four Wordle games at the same time, and that is essentially what it is. But it's not nearly as intimidating as it sounds.

Is Quordle harder than Wordle?

Yes, though not diabolically so.

Where did Quordle come from?

Amid the Wordle boom of late 2021 and early 2022, when everyone was learning to love free, in-browser, once-a-day word guessing games, creator Freddie Meyer says he took inspiration from one of the first big Wordle variations, Dordle — the one where you essentially play two Wordles at once. He took things up a notch, and released Quordle on January 30(Opens in a new tab). Meyer's creation was covered in The Guardian(Opens in a new tab) six days later, and now, according to Meyer, it attracts millions of daily users. Today, Meyer earns modest revenue(Opens in a new tab) from Patreon, where dedicated Quordle fans can donate to keep their favorite puzzle game running. 

How is Quordle pronounced?

“Kwordle.” It should rhyme with “Wordle,” and definitely should not be pronounced exactly like "curdle.”

Is Quordle strategy different from Wordle?

Yes and no.

Your starting strategy should be the same as with Wordle. In fact, if you have a favorite Wordle opening word, there’s no reason to change that here. We suggest something rich in vowels, featuring common letters like C, R, and N. But you do you.

After your first guess, however, you’ll notice things getting out of control if you play Quordle exactly like Wordle.

What should I do in Quordle that I don’t do in Wordle?

Solving a Wordle puzzle can famously come down to a series of single letter-change variations. If you’ve narrowed it down to “-IGHT,” you could guess “MIGHT” “NIGHT” “LIGHT” and “SIGHT” and one of those will probably be the solution — though this is also a famous way to end up losing in Wordle, particularly if you play on “hard mode.” In Quordle, however, this sort of single-letter winnowing is a deadly trap, and it hints at the important strategic difference between Wordle and Quordle: In Quordle, you can't afford to waste guesses unless you're eliminating as many letters as possible at all times. 

Guessing a completely random word that you already know isn't the solution, just to eliminate three or four possible letters you haven’t tried yet, is thought of as a desperate, latch-ditch move in Wordle. In Quordle, however, it's a normal part of the player's strategic toolset.

Is there a way to get the answer faster?

In my experience Quordle can be a slow game, sometimes dragging out longer than it would take to play Wordle four times. But a sort of blunt-force guessing approach can speed things up. The following strategy also works with Wordle if you only want the solution, and don’t care about having the fewest possible guesses:

Try starting with a series of words that puts all the vowels (including Y) on the board, along with some other common letters. We've had good luck with the three words: “NOTES,” “ACRID,” and “LUMPY.” YouTuber DougMansLand(Opens in a new tab) suggests four words: “CANOE,” “SKIRT,” “PLUMB,” and “FUDGY.”

Most of the alphabet is now eliminated, and you’ll only have the ability to make one or two wrong guesses if you use this strategy. But in most cases you’ll have all the information you need to guess the remaining words without any wrong guesses.

If strategy isn't helping, and you're still stumped, here are some hints:

Are there any double or triple letters in today’s Quordle words?

Two words have letters occurring twice.

Are any rare letters being used in today’s Quordle like Q or Z?


What do today’s Quordle words start with?

B, A, S, and S.

What are the answers for today’s Quordle?

Are you sure you want to know?

There’s still time to turn back.

OK, you asked for it. The answers are:

  1. BALER

  2. AMAZE

  3. SPICY

  4. SEGUE

    The internet made sooooo many jokes about Trumps fake news trophy tweet


    Perhaps the biggest bummer about Twitter's new 280-character limit is that it allows the current president to compose tweets like this one:

    On Monday morning, President Donald Trump hit Twitter to suggest a "FAKE NEWS TROPHY" for whichever news network he deems produces "the most dishonest, corrupt" coverage of his presidency. As usual, Fox was excluded from Trump's media rage.

    In the same tweet, Trump referred to himself as the American people's favorite president with a parenthetical "(me)." According the most recent Gallup(opens in a new tab) poll, the self-described "favorite" president's approval rating currently sits at 37 percent.

    Naturally the internet jumped all over Trump's first tweet of the day. Some even have a solid suggestion for Trump's proposed "FAKE NEWS TROPHY":

    Project Entrepreneur expands accelerator program to help more women entrepreneurs build scalable companies


    Since launching in 2015, Project Entrepreneur(opens in a new tab) — a media partner of Mashable — has trained more than 1,200 aspiring entrepreneurs representing 131 U.S. cities. Its annual venture competition has yielded an alumnae community of nearly 400 women entrepreneurs, with the 2016 finalists reporting $10+ million raised in seed and pre-seed funding.

    Now entering its third year, Project Entrepreneur (PE) — an initiative from the Rent the Runway Foundation and UBS Elevating Entrepreneurs(opens in a new tab) — is expanding the number of winning companies in the accelerator from three to five.

    “We are so excited to continue working with UBS in providing women with the tools they need to create high-growth companies, and see their visions through,” said Jennifer Hyman, CEO and Co-Founder of Rent the Runway. “Past participants in our accelerator continue to inspire us with their incredible progress, including closing rounds of funding. We are eager to provide the next class of talented female founders with the tools and support they need to scale, and to see the disruption their companies bring to various different industries.”

    PE's annual venture competition is open to female founders who are in the prototype or beta stages, have their first paying customers, or are generating revenue. The top 200 applicants will be invited to attend the PE Intensive in New York City on April 13-14, 2018, a free two-day event comprised of in-depth workshops, expert speakers and a pitch competition. The five winning founders will each receive a $10,000 grant, a spot in the five-week accelerator program at Rent the Runway’s New York office and mentorship and engagement with UBS executives, entrepreneurs, and investors. Founders interested can apply online(opens in a new tab); but don’t wait, as the deadline is December 1st!

    Last year’s winning companies included: New York-based LOLI Beauty(opens in a new tab), the first BIY (Blend It Yourself) clean and green beauty brand; Scottsdale-based The Touchpoint Solution(opens in a new tab), a neuroscience wearable that alleviates stress by altering the body’s stress response in as little as 30 seconds; and San Francisco-based Lace & Liberty(opens in a new tab), merging direct-to-consumer convenience with luxury bespoke bridalwear. Two additional New York-based companies were hosted by The Knot/XO Group Co-Founder Carley Roney and designer Rebecca Minkoff: Repeat Roses(opens in a new tab), a sustainable floral waste removal business that gives back to people and planet, and Reboundwear(opens in a new tab), athleisure wear with a purpose, respectively.


    “The caliber of companies we're seeing through Project Entrepreneur further validates what we've always believed — that there is an incredible population of talented female founders in cities and towns across the country,” said Lori Feinsilver, UBS Head of Community Affairs & Corporate Responsibility, Americas. “Being able to reach these women and provide them with access to resources and support that will help fuel their growth gives us confidence that we can indeed level the playing field.”

  • Two people trying to run the same government agency makes for a really awkward first day

    Two people trying to run the same government agency makes for a really awkward first day


    Revolutionaries, take note -- if you're planning a government takeover, please use high quality breakfast pastries.

    That's a lesson that White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney(opens in a new tab) apparently hadn't learned when he stepped into the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau today. He was there to take on an additional job as the agency's director.

    The only problem? The agency's acting director, Leandra English, refused to cede it to him, in the workplace drama of the decade.

    As a Trump appointee, Mulvaney wasn't exactly welcomed at at the job, so he brought crappy Dunkin' Donuts as a way to "ease" himself into an agency he's expected to destroy.

    SEE ALSO: Sorry, Cards Against Humanity can't stop Trump's wall

    On Friday, Director Richard Cordray(opens in a new tab) stepped down, leaving English to serve as acting director. Last night, English filed a lawsuit claiming that she is the "rightful acting director" of the agency. English has asked the court to impose a temporary restraining order to prevent Trump from appointing anyone, arguing that she is entitled to her position under the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Law(opens in a new tab).

    None of that stopped Mulvaney. On Monday, the Budget Director stepped into the CFPB, ready to take on his new job.

    This is how English responded in an email sent to 1,600 staff.

    "I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. With Thanksgiving in mind, I wanted to take a moment to share my gratitude to all of you for your service,” English said(opens in a new tab), signing the note with her title, "Acting Director."

    And that, my friends, is what we call a death drop.

    Via Giphy(opens in a new tab)

    Here's how Mulvaney responded:

    “Please disregard any instructions you receive from Ms. English in her presumed capacity as acting director.” Mulvaney said(opens in a new tab). “I apologize for this being the very first thing you hear from me. However, under the circumstances I suppose it is necessary. If you’re at 1700 G Street today, please stop by the fourth floor to say hello and grab a doughnut.”

    If Mulvaney, a budget hawk, thinks he can sway members of an agency whose jobs he's poised to eliminate with Dunkin' Donuts, he's out of his mind. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau(opens in a new tab) was explicitly designed to protect consumers from banks and credit card companies. Mulvaney once famously called the agency "sad" and "sick." He is not, as members of the agency likely know, their friend.

    And dude, if you're going to try and win your staff over with breakfast pastries, at least go for something slightly more delicious than Dunkin'. Some suggestions:

    • Krispy Kreme

    • (图2)

      Entenmann's Coffee Cake

    • Savory bacon cheddar scones

    • Literally anything else

    The case is currently being decided. In the meantime, here's Twitter's majority opinion on the issue:

    Chef José Andrés, the man who single-handedly served 3 million meals to Puerto Rico post Hurricane Maria, had the best response of them all.

    Case closed.

    Woman posts video of crocodile attack, and it is heartstopping


    Welp, this is a close call.

    A tourist was bitten on the leg by a crocodile on at Cape Tribulation in Queensland, Australia on Monday night, while standing on a creek bank close to the waters edge.

    SEE ALSO: Maybe don't get a photo with your friends inside a crocodile trap

    A Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) spokesperson said in a statement the crocodile was estimated to be 2 to 2.5 metres (78 to 98 inches) long.

    A video posted on the Facebook page of Ally Bullifent shows the crocodile attack, which comes out of nowhere. It'll be sure to give you a shock.


    The EHP said it would carry out a site assessment of the area on Tuesday, and will possibly target the crocodile "for removal" as it has displayed dangerous behaviour in a designated area. This means it'll be moved to a crocodile farm or a zoo, according to the Cairns Post(opens in a new tab).

    For authorities, it also serves as a reminder about staying safe in areas where crocodiles might be around. Earlier this year, an 18-year-old boy was attacked by a crocodile while reportedly trying to impress a girl.

  • Town crier who announced Prince Harrys engagement to Meghan Markle is 100% fake

    Town crier who announced Prince Harrys engagement to Meghan Markle is 100% fake


    England, with its quirky traditions and old-fashioned customs, is a land of endless fascination for outsiders, nominally for people from the former colony of the U.S.

    SEE ALSO: The most adorable revelations from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first interview

    So it's understandable why a town crier -- with his elaborate, red and gold robed dress and tricorn hat -- attracted people's attention on social media when he was depicted in an ABC News video as he announces the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement outside of Buckingham Palace:

    "Oyez, oyez, oyz!" He yells in the video. "Buckingham Palace is proud to announce the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. God save the Queen!" 

    It can't get any more British than this.

    Business Insider posted a similar video, calling him "the Royal Town Crier":

    However, it turns out the eccentric guy is not officially appointed by the Queen, nor is he a real town crier. His real name is Tony Appleton, from Romford, east London, and he's been making royal announcements for years, bell and scroll on hand.


    In 2013, he fooled prominent American broadcasters(opens in a new tab) including Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper when he announced the birth of Prince William and Kate's firstborn, Prince George, outside St. Mary's Hospital.

    "I'm a royalist. I love the royal family," he told (opens in a new tab)AP(opens in a new tab), while acknowledging he had no official royal role. "I came unannounced."

    Still, many Americans fell for it:

  • Cheeky theory is the best explanation yet for the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle engagement

    Cheeky theory is the best explanation yet for the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle engagement


    News of the engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle caught Americans' imagination just like any other story about the British royals -- births, anniversaries, celebrations, jubilees, and so on.

    But what if behind the jolly facade of a couple in love wishing to declare their commitment before God and the nation there's an actual conspiracy to reclaim a former colony, lost in a never-forgotten, embittered war?

    That's the joke Greg Pollowitz, editor at, dug up to explain the royal announcement:

    Meghan Markle is American, so the future offspring will be Americans! Da-daam! Boom! Mic drop!

    via GIPHY(opens in a new tab)

    It was just a cheeky tweet, but it went absolutely viral and people just loved it:

    There was the obvious Brexit reference:


    As well as the Trump one:

    Some conjectured a crossover between two incredibly popular TV shows:

    But in general the tweets reacting to the joke were just hilarious:

    While someone took it a bit too seriously:

    Dog, sick and tired of waiting in car, slams his paw on the horn


    It will be a long time before America finally grants dogs the right to drive.

    Until then, dogs will have to do what they can to keep themselves entertained. Take this pup, who was recently left alone in a parking lot in " target="_blank">Nanaimo, British Columbia(opens in a new tab), and slammed its paw on the car horn out of exhaustion. And then it kept it there. For a long time.

    Look, if you want to cut down a massive Christmas tree, and stick it up inside your two-story living room, go for it. But maybe don't endanger anyone's life in the process.

    Police in Massachusetts put up a post on their Facebook page on Friday, reminding people to please transport their Christmas trees safely. They really shouldn't have to do this, but here we are.

    SEE ALSO: Upside down Christmas trees are trending, and the internet is outraged

    "One of our officer's stopped this vehicle on Route 20 today," the cops said on Facebook(opens in a new tab), posting a photo of what appears to be a Prius topped with a Christmas tree.

    The tree is so large, it completely obstructs the view of the side and rear windows. It's not clearly visible, but we're also guessing that it wasn't tied down very well.


    While the tree transport was outrageous to say the least, most people in the comments were upset that the police decided to call the tree a "holiday tree" instead of a Christmas tree.

  • The best Maxine Waters moments of 2017

    The best Maxine Waters moments of 2017


    2017 was the year Congresswoman Maxine Waters was elected president of All in With Chris Hayes.

    From the moment she declared that the director of the FBI had "no legitimacy" and then death dropped in front of a gaggle of shellshocked reporters, 79-year-old Auntie Maxine has had our blood loyalty. Every floor she walked on in 2017, whether it was in the Capitol or at the MTV Movie Awards, became her stage and ultimately, a property in her empire.

    More so than any other "deplorable" president with a Ziploc bag of fleas for a brain, Maxine Waters was the de facto leader of the free world/MSNBC in 2017.

    SEE ALSO: Interview: Maxine Waters thinks millennials can change politics for everyone (yes, everyone)

    Congresswoman Waters gave us so many viral gifts in 2017. Here are just a few of them.

    1. The time she accused James Comey of having no credibility and then just walked on out

    2. When she revealed that she was "never going to go" to Trump's Inauguration because, "I don't honor him, I don't respect him and I don't want to be involved with him."

    3. The time she was asked what she would do once she was done impeaching Trump, and she replied: "Impeach Pence."

    4. When she delivered MTV's first ever "Best Fight Against the System" award, did a plié, and got a standing ovation.

    5. When she tweeted that it was time for our "racist throwback" Attorney General to go back "to the plantation"

    6. Her "Bye, Felicia" moment

    7. When she busted out this stunner of jean jacket, rose pants ensemble at the Tax March

    8. When she started railing against Trump and told a room full of supporters, "We've got to stop his ass"

    9. The moment she just said it:


    10. And the tweet that did it too:

    11. That day Bill O'Reilly tried to humiliate Auntie Maxine and just ... lol, sorry bro. She can't be intimidated.

    12. When she "reclaimed her time" from Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin

  • Eggs, ranked


    Eggs, ranked

    Happy Easter. Time to talk about eggs.

    There are, of course, many ways to appreciate the egg -- as breakfast staple, as fancy appetizer, as weird chocolate candy. But some egg presentations are better than others. And some (*cough* -- hard-boiled eggs -- *cough*) are unforgivable.

    SEE ALSO: Find out which Easter candy is the most popular — or polarizing — in your state

    Here, our ranking:

    17. Scrambled (without cheese)

    Scrambled eggs without cheese may as well not be scrambled eggs at all.

    16. Humpty Dumpty

    Creepy, depressing, and maybe not even an egg(opens in a new tab). Pass.

    15. Hard-boiled

    Robs the egg of all its joy. The obligatory "protein' in your salad. Sure, they are okay, but you'd rather have your eggs cooked another way and you know it.

    14. Cadbury Creme

    The interior of the Cadbury Creme egg is so visually distressing, it's nearly impossible to consume. Not good.

    13. Easter eggs (pop culture)

    A "fun term" for hidden, fan service-y surprises, entertainment Easter eggs used to be more fun when there weren't so many of them. Dial the Pixar crossover moments back a little and then we'll talk.

    12. Frittata

    A good frittata is good, but a bad frittata is an inedible, offensive sponge. Inconveniently requires cooking time both on the stove and in the oven.

    11. Kinder

    Points for not being a Cadbury Creme egg. Deductions for the whole "choking hazard" thing. (Kinder eggs -- albeit a different version(opens in a new tab) -- are available in the U.S. now, though.)

    10. Sunny-side-up

    Delicious, to be sure, but it's hard to get the whites set just right. And it's fun to flip an egg, (don't @ us), which is why...

    9. Over-easy

    ...the over-easy egg ranks a little higher.

    8. Easter eggs (regular)

    Major nostalgia points for these workhorses, which have endured all kinds of hideous paint patterns and tie-dyeing over the years. All hail the joy of the Easter egg hunt.

    7. Soft-boiled

    The source of one of the most delightful phrases language has to offer: "jammy eggs." Plus, if it weren't for soft-boiled eggs, we'd never have Chrissy Teigen's egg chart. Oh, and they also taste good.

    6. In a frame

    That is all.

    3. Deviled

    A fancy treat. A work of art. A delicious sauce vessel. The only reason to ever hard-boil an egg.

    2. Scrambled (with cheese)

    A plate of creamy slow-scrambled eggs with cheese is one of the best and simplest pleasures life has to offer. Bonus: it is very difficult to mess them up completely.

    1. Poached

    The queen of eggs: decadent, difficult to make(opens in a new tab), and extremely satisfying to crack open. There's basically an entire Instagram world dedicated to tantalizing poached egg footage, and that's what pushes it into the top spot. In our opinion, it's the only thing saving avocado toast from brunchtime irrelevance. Yum.

    On Wednesday, Peloton announced a sweeping, voluntary recall for both of its treadmills — the Tread and Tread+ — due to safety hazards.

The following month, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) followed up with a warning to consumers that it was "aware of 39 incidents including one death" and urged owners of the Tread+ to stop using the exercise machine.

    In its April statement, the CPSC said(Opens in a new tab) the Tread+ "poses serious risks to children for abrasions, fractures, and death." The agency recommended consumers "stop using the product immediately" due to "multiple reports of children becoming entrapped, pinned, and pulled under the rear roller of the product[.]"

    Foley initially refuted the CPSC's claims(Opens in a new tab), calling them a "misleading, inaccurate bulletin on Tread+ product safety." But the Peloton CEO has since apologized(Opens in a new tab) for his response:

    "The decision to recall both products was the right thing to do for Peloton’s Members and their families. I want to be clear, Peloton made a mistake in our initial response to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s request that we recall the Tread+.  We should have engaged more productively with them from the outset. For that, I apologize."

    Those who own the Tread+ have until November 6, 2022 to contact Peloton for a full refund. If the treadmill is returned after that date, a partial refund will be offered.

    Owners who want to keep the Tread+ despite the safety warnings can take Peloton up on its offer to come in and move the treadmill to a room that can't be accessed by children or pets — free of charge.

    Peloton is also working on a safety-focused software update that would "automatically lock the Tread+ after each use and prevent unauthorized access by assigning a 4-digit passcode[.]"

    Meanwhile, the Peloton Tread — the company's smaller and more basic treadmill — is being recalled(Opens in a new tab) due to risk of injury related to its touchscreen. The CPSC says it's "aware of 18 reports of the touchscreen loosening and six reports of the touchscreen detaching and falling." No injuries have been reported in the U.S., but there have been reports of bruises, abrasions, and minor cuts in the United Kingdom and Canada.

    A repair plan for the Tread is currently in the works and Peloton says it should be available for owners "in the coming weeks." But you can also request a full refund via Peloton's site(Opens in a new tab).

    UPDATE: May 5, 2021, 6:02 p.m. EDT As per Peloton's support page, you can also request a full refund for the Peloton Tread.

  • Good news everyone, Logan Paul doesnt actually think the Earth is flat

    Good news everyone, Logan Paul doesnt actually think the Earth is flat


    Logan Paul is many things, but thankfully he is not a flat Earther.

    In a 50-minute, 2-second mockumentary that included a torrid affair with a Flat Earther, a betrayal from a roommate, and a rap that rhymes "NASA" with "I think I'm gonna passa," the YouTube star announced that no, he doesn't actually think the Earth is flat.

    SEE ALSO: We watched the feature length Jake Paul docu-series finale so you don't have to

    Sporting a newly grown beard, Logan's scripted-ish movie takes a deep dive into the Flat Earth International Conference in Colorado.

    During the "filming" of another challenge video, his roommate Mike Majlak pulls him aside in a badly acted out dialogue about whether the earth is flat, and is later caught on camera smashing the various globes that decorate Logan's sprawling mansion.

    "I want you to be honest with me," Logan says in a kitchen confrontation with Mike. "Do you think the world is flat?"

    In a sit-down interview, Mike claims that he saw the edge of the Earth during a childhood trip to Antarctica.

    "We've been lied to," he rants over CGI footage of mountain ranges surrounded by the cosmos. Then, he attempts to convert Logan to Flat Earther-ism.


    Logan also faux-interrogates a group of children, who all swear on science that the world is round, until he finds a child who reasons that the world must be flat. A literal child manages to convince the 23-year-old YouTuber that the world is flat.

    Logan and Mike then make their way to the Flat Earth International Conference and meet its CEO, Robbie Davidson. Other Flat Earthers include a guy who launched himself into the sky via homemade rocket, a freestyle rapper, and a former employee of Space Systems/Loral (the company that builds satellites).

    "Everybody's around the globe," a Flat Earther tells Logan. "The globe's in your mind."

    He also meets an Australian Flat Earther and ends up absolutely smitten. It only takes a single date with her to sway him into believing in the conference's teachings and for him to professes his love for her. In a heart-to-heart with Mike, Logan also declares his belief in the popular conspiracy theory via rap.

    "Ever since my birth, my dick got mad girth," Mike and Logan rap. "I'm chilling with my people talking 'bout that flat Earth."

    They may be enlightened, but it doesn't mean they're particularly intellectual.

    At Logan's "coming out" party where he proclaims his newfound beliefs, Mike admits that he's not actually a Flat Earther, forcing Logan to wonder if the conference and his relationship meant anything at all.

    What exactly was the point of making this? What did Logan hope to achieve?

    Which, oddly enough, is exactly how we felt after spending 50 minutes and two seconds on watching this vlog. What exactly was the point of making this? What did Logan hope to achieve? Is he trolling the Flat Earth International Conference, or is this a self-aware middle finger to the skeptical people who are all too ready to dunk on him?

    Logan's much-hyped video — which was promoted as a documentary but turned out to be more of a narrative movie — raised concerns that the older Paul brother had fallen for the conspiracy theory and would spread the lies to his young audience, which is comprised of mostly children. In a rare moment of maturity, the dude known for peddling merch and making overtly sexual videos that children will definitely watch seems to actually consider the consequences of his actions. We won't have an army of adolescent Flat Earthers, thanks to Logan Paul.


    Despite the incredibly dumb shit he's done in the past, Logan at least has some sense.

    "I think that's the dumbest shit I've heard in my life," he said, before pausing and pulling the most Logan Paul troll he's pulled so far. "I'm not sure ... there is an Earth at all."

    Cue another impossibly loud rap.

  • Primel is a tricky new Wordle spin-off thatll make your head hurt

    Primel is a tricky new Wordle spin-off thatll make your head hurt

    First we had Wordle, then we had Absurdle, and now we have Primel(Opens in a new tab).


    Yep, that's right — yet another iteration of the viral grid-based daily guessing game has surfaced online, and this one may be the most fiendishly head-scratching so far.

    First a quick recap: Wordle is a puzzle game that involves guessing a secret word by trying out different word combinations, with clues coming in the form of the different colours the letters in each of your guesses change to (green means a letter in the exact right place, orange means a correct letter in the wrong place, and grey means the letter doesn't appear in the word at all).

    So, how does Primel differ?

    Created by Full Stack Developer Hannah Park — who shared the code on github(Opens in a new tab)Primel is pretty much the exact same deal as Wordle, just with prime numbers instead of words.


    That's right, this one involves maths.

    You basically have to guess five-figure prime numbers, zeroing in on the correct answer using the colour-coded clues you receive along the way.

    SEE ALSO: Hooked on 'Wordle'? You're really going to hate 'Absurdle'.

    Is it as fun as Wordle? Well, given that we continually struggled to think of prime numbers that were five figures long, we'd have to say no — but anyone with a maths brain might enjoy giving it a go.

    People freak out over Shaun Whites Olympic win, but its not the only thing theyre talking about


    Snowboarder Shaun White has cemented his place as one of the sport's greatest of all time — but some old accusations have joined the moment.

    The 31-year-old Californian won his third Olympic gold medal at the men's halfpipe event on Tuesday, achieving a medal-winning feat which no other snowboarder has attained.

    SEE ALSO: What is Team OAR and why are they in the Olympics?

    After taking the initial lead, White stumbled in his second run which allowed Japan's Ayumu Hirano to overtake him with the difficult-to-beat score of 95.25.

    And so, a run of remarkable proportions was required: White delivered right at the death, winning with a score of 97.75. The emotion is no short of palpable.

    The win is even better with Titanic music.

    It's been an incredible comeback for White. He finished fourth in the same event at the 2014 Winter Olympics, and required 62 stitches after slamming his face into a superpipe while training in New Zealand back in October.(opens in a new tab)


    The injury nearly cost White another Olympics, but here we are, and there were plenty of people who shared their elation for him on Twitter.

    White's win has also brought to the surface sexual harassment accusations that have been previously laid against the snowboarder.

    Lena Zawaideh, formerly a drummer in White's band Bad Things, claimed the snowboarder made vulgar remarks and forced her to watch "sexually disturbing videos," according to USA Today(opens in a new tab). The pair settled in May 2017, not that people have stopped talking about it.

    Kanye West sends Kim Kardashian emails about whats hot and whats not


    Season 7 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians gave us the iconic scene in which Kanye West physically goes through Kim Kardashian's closet(opens in a new tab) to clear out some old stuff to make way for the new.

    Unfortunately, we'll probably never get anything like that again from the private couple, but in the latest episode of KUWTK, Kim gave us some insight into their relationship and revealed that some of her fashion choices are still directly dictated by the rapper himself—by email.

    "Kanye picked it out," she said. "He sent me a whole email and said 'You cannot wear big glasses anymore, it's all about tiny little glasses,'" Kim explained to her friend in the opening scene of Sunday's episode "My Mother's Keeper."

    Credit: E!

    Turns out, he sent Kim an email full of photos from the '90s filled with people donning "tiny little glasses" which are in fact very much on trend last year, particularly during the summer (and Kardashian-adjacent Bella Hadid might as well be the queen of the look(opens in a new tab)).


    It's truly just one minute of insight, but dang, can we all get those memos too, Kanye?

    Instagram delight Glenn Close uses Snapchat to turn herself into Woody Harrelson


    Glenn Close -- award-winning actress, and more importantly, Instagram star(Opens in a new tab) -- has been having some fun with filters lately.

    In an Instagram post shared Wednesday evening, Close showed what her face looked like after it passed through Snapchat's gender-swap filter. According to the actress, her friends thought she had transformed into Woody Harrelson. Frankly, they are 100 percent right.

    Look at how much pleasure Close took in the moment. "A friend had the SNAPCHAT thing where it makes you into the opposite sex," Close wrote on Instagram. "When I show this picture of me as a guy with attitude, they think I’m Woody Harrelson! I’m flattered ... kind of."

    Not everyone is as excited about Snapchat's filter as Close is. Snapchat's gender-swap filter has come under fire from the trans community, for whom "gender-swapping" isn't a fun filter or a joke.

    Still, there are other parts of Close's Instagram presence that are slightly less problematic but equally enjoyable.

    The actress maintains a separate account(Opens in a new tab) for her dog, Pip, a Havanese little angel with more than 12,900 followers.

  • Storm Area 51 creator calls Alienstock a possible humanitarian disaster. But its still going ahead.

    Storm Area 51 creator calls Alienstock a possible humanitarian disaster. But its still going ahead.


    Alienstock — the Nevada desert music festival that grew out of a joke Facebook event to plan to "Naruto run" into Area 51 — is battling reports that it's not ready to host thousands of people, after the guy who started the year's wildest meme pulled out citing "poor planning" and endorsed a competing party.

    Matty Roberts — the 21-year-old creator of the original event "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All Of Us", which drew over 2 million RSVPs worldwide before being shut down by Facebook — had been helping to promote and book music for Alienstock.

    The festival was to be held in the tiny town of Rachel, Nevada, the nearest inhabited place to the Area 51 military site, between Sept. 19–22. Alienstock is a celebration of the unexpected virality of the Sept. 20 event (not to mention a way of attracting people away from the original, very illegal and dangerous, suggestion to try and storm a top secret Air Force base).

    But Roberts severed his association with Alienstock on Monday, with a statement on the event website calling it “a possible humanitarian disaster” and "FYREFEST 2.0”, citing "lack of infrastructure, poor planning, risk management and blatant disregard for the safety of the expected 10,000+ Alienstock attendees."

    The website statement(Opens in a new tab) details concerns about event planning and logistics:

    The permit holder (Connie West) was given multiple opportunities to provide us with the proof that things expected at this festival were in place. In fact, she refused to provide to us, as agreed upon, contracts, proof of deposits or any paper proof of anything.

    We are officially disconnecting from Connie West, Rachel NV and AlienStock's affiliation with them. We will no longer offer our logo, social media, website or Matty Roberts likeness or scheduled appearance. … We are not interested in, nor will we tolerate any involvement in a FYREFEST 2.0. We foresee a possible humanitarian disaster in the works, and we can’t participate in any capacity at this point.”

    Instead, the Alienstock page(Opens in a new tab) now directs attendees heading to Nevada next weekend to the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, promising "EDM artists and some unique art" at a free event in partnership with Bud Light on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 19. (The event was already planned before Roberts joined — it was announced on Sept. 3(Opens in a new tab).)

    Some outlets subsequently reported(Opens in a new tab) that Alienstock has been cancelled(Opens in a new tab).


    However -- and here's where it gets a tad complicated -- the organisers say the festival is very much still going ahead.

    A competing website, in a new tab), lists acts including Boots Electric (aka Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes) and LA trio Wily Savage as part of the lineup and claims to be "The OFFICIAL Storm Area 51 Festival".

    Joe Bartels, a reporter with KTNV 13 Action News in Las Vegas, says he verified that West has engaged security, medical, police, and sanitation services for the event.

    "I'm going to do it on my scale," West told Fox 5 news in Las Vegas(Opens in a new tab). "I'm going to do it the way I know how and what I've been planning for because I know no other way to do it. But it's still happening.

    “I’m still having a party because people are still coming to Rachel."

    Frank DiMaggio, Roberts' new partner in the Vegas-based event, was one of the organizers of Peacestock 51 — one of the other events planned in the area for that weekend, which was denied a permit(Opens in a new tab).

    Alon Burton, who plays in Wily Savage and is also curating the music lineup, told Mashable that his band has been part of the event since Roberts' event first began to take off, when the "attendance" was in the low hundreds of thousands.

    Burton says Roberts got involved after plans were already in motion, and him switching his allegiance to the Vegas event less than two weeks out from Alienstock was not only "emotionally draining" on West and the planning team, but that five bands on the 20+ act bill have either pulled out or are "on the fence" in the wake of Roberts' claims.

    "[Roberts] having control over the AlienStock festival website and the [festival's] Facebook event, definitely allowed them to do harm to the event that we have been planning since the beginning," Burton told Mashable over the phone, adding that Roberts' decision may have been influenced by the older and more experienced DiMaggio.


    "But, you know, doing that simply to get people to go to some alien-themed party in Las Vegas is not only just shitty, but also is pretty stupid."

    SEE ALSO: Bernie Sanders says he'll tell us if aliens exist if elected president

    But as West says, people are still coming to the original Alienstock event. Burton says AlienStock not only has the required approvals from local authorities and the infrastructure in place, but also has 2,600 camping spots booked — which he estimates puts the confirmed attendance at "at least 8,000."

    Mashable contacted the organizers of both events for comment, but the Vegas event team hadn't responded by the time of publication.

    Storm Area 51 has unravelled from a beautiful demonstration of the power of a good meme, unity in the face of a chaotic reality, and unwavering commitment to a bit, and turned into a splintered pile of branded memes, "Old Town Road" remixes, and competing parties. Whether this is a deliberate operation on the part of the U.S. military to derail an out-of-control prank that could see alien tissue samples turn up on Facebook Marketplace, or simply a natural consequence of an anarchic, tongue-in-cheek meme turning into something so real there are military briefings about it, remains to be seen.

    But something will be happening in the desert next weekend — even if it's just a few thousand people having a close encounter with some bands and a slightly dusty taco.
