Ranveer Singh's Silver Sneakers Look Brighter Than Kanye West Covered In Silver Paint

If there's one B-town celebrity whose fashion choices are unfathomable, it's  Ranveer Singh. Every time he steps out, he is seen in zany outfits, some which are relatable while some we can't even imagine wearing in our wildest dreams. 
From stepping out in long sneakers to turning heads in baggy pants, Ranveer has mastered the art of quirky fashion like none other. Truly, if there was an award for that, he would take it home.  © Viral Bhayani Metallic is everywhere, to be honest. This time, even rap king Kanye West couldn't stop himself from experimenting and went all out painting himself in silver. He was fully donned in silver, from his hair to his face to his clothes. As expected, Twitter couldn't hold it back and the memes came pouring in, some even calling him the 'Tinman'.

PlayStation 4 Is The Most Popular Gaming Console For Watching Porn On Pornhub

Smartphones and laptops are usually the first choices for users to visit porn websites, however, gamers also use their consoles to watch porn. The PlayStation 4 is the most popular console of this gaming generation as it managed to reach 100 million units in sales. Naturally, a considerable number of them are probably being used to watch porn as well.  Pornhub does an annual survey of data from its website that includes nifty information about its users. In the survey, it was found that gamers still love to watch some Overwatch and Apex Legends porn. Without getting into the different types of porn gamers like to watch, Pornub says that the PlayStation 4 is the most popular gaming console from which the website receives traffic. 
Of all the gaming consoles, 51.5 percent of console traffic comes from the PlayStation 4 while 34.7 percent comes from the Xbox One. It is quite obvious that the PlayStation 4 would be more popular simply because of the number of consoles out there. Having said that, the Nintendo Switch does not have a native browser which can be used to visit the website. The most surprising console that made the list was the PlayStation Vita as it comes in at third with 9.1 percent of total console traffic. 
In terms of game-themed porn, Overwatch is still the most searched game on the website followed closely by Fortnite. It has been a busy year for Porhub and gaming-related porn especially, since the PlayStation 4 is getting more traffic than all other consoles combined.

UK Firm Makes Its Staff Work 4 Days A Week & It Has Improved Their Mental Health & Productivity

How much work is too much work? That's a very common question we ask ourselves on a daily basis, looking for some respite from our busy working schedules. Sometimes taking that Monday off, just so you can do the 100th reruns of FRIENDS is honestly so worth it, because starting your week from Tuesday is another high altogether. That's why Brighton-based firm, MCL Consulting group tried a four-day working week for six months, and found that both the business and the staff were doing fairly better than what they were during a five day working week! The trial started in March 2019 and the company assessed that 87% of their staff found their mental health a lot better working  just four days a week. Even short term absences had reduced to 40% and productivity improved by another 25%. Wow, all this on  four day weekday seems quite plausible, doesn't it? Besides I am sure the company's boss is always happy with his staff, and that makes a huge difference because a lot of workers are affected by their boss' temperament. © Pexels The idea came from the company's CEO, David Stone, after he noticed his colleagues from all over the globe, namely the UK, Germany and France could achieve five day's worth of work in just four days. "Weâre an output-based business, so weâve always been driven by results, rather than the time people spend at their desks. I considered that if people could be really self-critical of the time they spend at work, cutting down the time spent scrolling and socialising, then weâd be able to give them Fridays off. The results generated during the six-month trial have led us to implement a four-day week working model on a permanent basis." - David Stone told a popular publication in an interview. © NBC Universal Television Distribution Working long hours or a full week is quite a stressful ordeal with more issues stemming for our mental health. The given statistics state that 82% of employees feel worked up or stressed out on a daily basis. In the UK alone, employees have one of the longest working weeks, with less national holidays on their calendars, according to The Guardian. Well, in our opinion, a four day working week sounds less stressful and more productive. People just have a longer weekend to look forward to and they will wind up all the pending work, in just four days, proving productivity is quite efficient in a four-day working week. So, based on these statistics, how about you suggest a four-day working week to your boss and see what he or she says? We're definitely gonna do the same!

Salman Khan Doesn�t Sleep On His Bed And His Reason Behind It Is Hilarious

For those who know Salman Khan would know that he is completely unfiltered when it comes to giving interviews or hosting reality TV shows. Salman will make an appearance in The Kapil Sharma Show that he also co-produced. He will be seen promoting his upcoming movie, Dabangg 3. In this upcoming promo of the show, you will get to know something really hilarious about Salman Khan.
When Kapil asked him how long does it take for him to sleep on his bed, the actorâs response to it will make you roll on the floor laughing. Salman quipped and said he cannot sleep on the bed at all but rather chooses to sleep on the couch. They both laughed when Salman said he can sleep on the couch as he doesnât have to share it and can have all that space by himself.
Check out the promo: View this post on InstagramChulbuli baatein hongi bohot saari jab Kapil ke manch par aayenge #Dabangg3 ke stars! Dekhiye #TheKapilSharmaShow, iss Sat-Sun raat 9:30 baje @kapilsharma @kikusharda @chandanprabhakar @krushna30 @bharti.laughterqueen @sumonachakravarti @banijayasia @archanapuransingh @beingsalmankhan @aslisona @prabhudevaofficial @arbaazkhanofficial @maheshmanjrekarA post shared by (@sonytvofficial) We are sure that Salman will be spilling some more secrets on the show as he has done in the previous episodes that he has been a part of. Salman has also been in headlines for the controversy over him quitting Bigg Boss. âSalman is quitting the show and Farah Khan will be taking over from January. He's expected to celebrate his birthday on the sets," a TV industry source told IANS. According to reports, the actor is leaving the showing owing to his health conditions. Salman has been a part of the Colors show for almost a decade now. For his fans, it will surely be a setback after knowing that the actor wonât be continuing any more. Coming to Kapil Sharma, the actor-comedian is in a happy space, as he and his wife Ginni Chatrath became proud parents to a baby girl on Monday night. He told Bombay Times, âI am ecstatic. I havenât slept in two days. I am suffering from a bad cold and cough. So, I am not even sure whether I can hold my baby. The feeling is beyond words. Ginni and I always wanted a girl and we are happy that weâve been blessed with one. We canât thank God enough for our beautiful angel.â

Not Even Virat Kohli Could Believe How Good He Was Vs Kesrick Williams In Final T20I At Wankhede

When you step on the field on the day of your wedding anniversary, you know you've got to do something special. And something special is just what Virat Kohli did.  With the three-game series tied at 1-1 ahead Wednesday's match, it was do-or-die for the Indian cricket team and after the Windies won the toss and chose to bowl first, Kohli's men had only one option: go big.  Right from the beginning, the opening duo of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul lit Mumbai's Wankhede stadium with massive sixes and powerful fours and went on to form a 135-run partnership for the first wicket.  View this post on Instagram Rohit + Rahul = ð¥ð¥ð¥#TeamIndia #INDvWI @paytm A post shared by Team India (@indiancricketteam) on Dec 11, 2019 at 6:23am PST Once Sharma was dismissed, a classic “Rohit-Sharma-In-Mumbai” knock of 71 runs was witnessed. Then Rishabh Pant did his thing and went away for a duck on the second delivery, and finally, it was time for captain Kohli to shine.  Of the first 24 runs, 20 came in the shape of two maximums, two blazing boundaries and a lot of NSFW trash talking in the middle of the pitch. View this post on Instagram Kohli Vs Williams ð¥ð¥ð¥Captain on song and on fire #TeamIndia #INDvWI @paytm A post shared by Team India (@indiancricketteam) on Dec 11, 2019 at 7:15am PST But it wasn't until Kohli reached the 31-run mark that we got to see the highlight of his innings. With Kesrick Williams, one of the most entertaining rivals of the Indian skipper, bowling over the wicket in the 18th over, Kohli slammed the ball so hard and far that even he couldn't believe his eyes.  #ViratKohli Aggressive king Attitude ð¥ð¥ðð®ð³ðªð pic.twitter.com/3aor9oJFBf — SantuAcharya (@9SSantu) December 11, 2019 Now, of course, it was Kohli's unique way of carrying on his banter with the Carribean bowler and as he stood on the non-batting side of the crease following a single in the same over, he never took his eyes off Williams and stared at him, as he took the run-up for his final delivery of the over to KL Rahul. The skipper completely took over the match while hitting seven sixes and four fours and completed a feat of a 70-run innings in just 29 balls to help the Player of the Match, KL Rahul, take India's total to 240 runs - their third-highest total in the 20-over format of the game. View this post on Instagram Can #TeamIndia defend in the decider? ð§ #INDvWI @paytm A post shared by Team India (@indiancricketteam) on Dec 11, 2019 at 7:31am PST Thanks to the variation in the pace bowling that came to the attack with the introduction of Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav's grit to take wickets despite being thrashed by Kieron Pollard initially, the Men in Blue were able to wrap up the Windies side at 173 and won the match by a massive 67-run differential.  The series win became India's third consecutive one in Twenty20 Internationals. In the post-match presentation, Kohli let the world know that his special knock was an anniversary present to his wife and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma: .@imVkohli on today's 'special' knockð pic.twitter.com/KgFhUFclIj — BCCI (@BCCI) December 11, 2019 Check out some of the best reactions to Kohli's blistering innings:  What an innings incredible by kohli

Anand Mahindra Shares Inspiring Workout Video Of A 72-YO & Here We're Only 'Running' Out Of Money

On days when Anand Mahindra is not sharing funny and entertaining videos on his Twitter account, he shares inspiring posts that leave a huge impact on his followers and people around him. Honestly, if there was an award for being the owner of the best and the most versatile Twitter account, Anand Mahindra will be the uncontested winner. And this time around too, he proved why he deserves this 'imaginary' award more than anyone else.   © Reuters Let's face it, health and fitness is not everyone's cup of tea. In India, most of us buy that treadmill only to dry clothes on it after some time. Most of us download a fitness app or join fitness classes only to avail the discount vouchers on their food app. But not everyone does that. There are people who take health very seriously and this 72-year-old woman is a legendary example of the same. Anand Mahindra shared this video of her intense workout session, which was originally shared by Manoj Kumar, CEO of Naandi Foundation. Why did you have to share this video in the morning, Manoj!? It's made me feel lazy and flabby compared to this iron woman... Ah well maybe this is the kick in the rear we all needed to stop making excuses about our exercise routines...â¹ï¸ https://t.co/9aQkWJp4lj — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) December 11, 2019 From lifting up to 70 kgs, doing a headstand to performing extreme stretches, there ain't anything this woman can't do. And here we can't even lift 10 kgs without making strange noises as if it's killing us. Mahindra wrote, "Why did you have to share this video in the morning, Manoj!? It's made me feel lazy and flabby compared to this iron woman... Ah well maybe this is the kick in the rear we all needed to stop making excuses about our exercise routines." Not just Mahindra, but a lot of people are taking their daily dose of inspiration from this 'iron woman'. And above all this video taught us a lesson that first be strong from inside, be mentally strong so that we can tackle our problems. We shouldn't run away from our problems and weaknesses. — Bedabrat Deka (@BedabratDeka4) December 11, 2019 Yoga is not only about physical fitness...it also enhances mental capabilities ð — Dr Charuhas (@charuhasmujumd1) December 11, 2019 I'm not even 1% in front of this old lady... — Dolan (@dolan_maity18) December 11, 2019 And above all this video taught us a lesson that first be strong from inside, be mentally strong so that we can tackle our problems. We shouldn't run away from our problems and weaknesses. — Bedabrat Deka (@BedabratDeka4) December 11, 2019 After watching that VDO, I asked myself "That lady at 90 is caring her health, and do I care my health for myself ? ". Answer is big NO.
Inspiring VDO, thank you sir for posting it and opened eyes are of many lazy guys . — ashishbmt (@ashishbmt) December 11, 2019 Age is just a number ð I bow to her — à¤à¤à¤à¤¿à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¥à¤°à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾ (@Ankita84sia) December 11, 2019

Elon Musk Is Now Driving Around In The New Tesla Cybertruck & Is Crashing Into Things

Honestly, the new Tesla Cybertruck is a gift that just keeps on giving. It hasn't even launched yet, and actually won't be launched for a few years, but it still seems like the only thing people can talk about. First, we got the witness the 'unbreakable' windows actually breaking during the unveiling, then how can we forget about the memes on the design? It really does, for real, look like the car everyone drew when they were kids. Now, Elon, being the rebel he is, is just driving the prototype of the Cybertruck around Los Angeles, and oh, is also crashing into things. Recently, a video of him leaving a restaurant in the Cybertruck went viral because, obviously, it's a weird giant car just randomly being spotted on the road. Actually, the main reason the video is so hilarious is because Elon, apparently, knocked down a sign that reportedly said that a left turn wasn't allowed while taking a right turn.  Wow. Rich people really have no respect for rules, man. Who's driving @ElonMusk or the Auto-Pilot?$TSLA pic.twitter.com/xvmyHPG8Ol — GuruLeaks (@Guruleaks1) December 8, 2019 According to TMZ, the Cybertruck was parked right in front of the restaurant, causing a lot of people to come out and admire it. Apparently, even actor Edward Norton came out of the restaurant to get a better look at the weird car. People love everything Elon does, and they, obviously, loved this. .@elonmusk crushing a traffic cone (?), showing off the strength of the #Cybertruck, as he did not seem to notice, haha. Love it! pic.twitter.com/CjyAvonXKH — Janne Wolterbeek â¡ï¸ (@langejanne) December 8, 2019 Actually, spoke too soon. Imagine actually having the financial and cultural wherewithal to reimagine the world in some massively significant way and you decide to build a shitty truck from a 1980s scifi movie. https://t.co/RfPTO4mqLP — The War on Cars (@TheWarOnCars) December 9, 2019 Love it. love the child-sized traffic cone he mows over, great detail https://t.co/N9qKuRrImB — Koop ðð¸ (@BATVVOLF) December 10, 2019 Yep.

Aged 17, Barcelona Wonderkid Ansu Fati Becomes The Youngest Goalscorer In Champions League

For years, Lionel Messi has been the torch-bearer for Spanish giants Barcelona. Rapidly progressing through the club's ranks, Messi made his first team debut at the age of just 16. And, since then, there has been no turning back for Messi. From Ballon d'Ors, Champions League titles to La Liga glory, the 32-year-old has won everything one can dream of while playing for Barcelona. His crucial goals have often aided Barcelona in dire situations, while Messi's unmatched skills have allowed the Catalan club to get the better of some of the best opponents in the sport. © Reuters But, on November 11 at a packed San Siro, when Barcelona needed a goal, it wasn't Messi, but a 17-year-old youngster who bailed them out. Having already qualified for the knockout stages, Ernesto Valverde gave prominent names like Messi a rest before fielding a depleted Barcelona brigade against Inter Milan in the Group F clash. With Inter desperately requiring a win to stay afloat in the competition, the home side were handed an early setback as Champions League debutant Carles Perez put Barcelona in front in the 23rd minute. But, a brilliant Romelu Lukaku finish saw Inter levelling the proceedings in the 44th minute to help them go into half-time at 1-1. The second half saw few chances coming for both sides, but the 1-1 deadlock remained. With time running out, Barcelona winger Fati produced a moment of brilliance by scoring the winner for the visitors. The Guinea-Bissau-born footballer pounced on a Luis Suarez cross to seal the game for Barcelona in the 86th minute. © Reuters In the process, Fati became the youngest goalscorer in the history of the Champions League. It was another record for the youngster in what is turning out to be a dream season and, clearly, he was delighted after the match.  "I give it to Suarez and he gives it back. And when I score I was surprised because the whole stadium was silent. I was thinking: 'What have I just done?'. But I am really happy. Every time I get a chance, I will try to take it, with goals or, at least, by working hard. It's a dream, everything seems to be going really quickly, now it's just about enjoying myself and learning from the best,” Fati was quoted as saying by Sport. Thanks to his winner, Barcelona got through as unbeaten Group F winners, while Borussia Dortmund qualify as runners-up and Inter drop into the Europa League.

5 Ways To Deal With Body Hair & Not Draw Flak On Insta When Posing Shirtless

With all the bruhaha over Kartik Aaryan's recent advertisement for a hair removal cream, men's body hair is again having a moment.  Keeping all the controversies surrounding the advertisement campaign aside, the pertinent question still remains, what should men do with their body hair? © Instagram/hrithikroshan The thing is, this is one of the most divisive topics of discussion. Some men believe that staying natural is the best thing, whereas others just squirm at the idea of men having hair growing out of their chest.   © iStock On top of all this, there is the whole phenomenon that social media is. Posing shirtless on Instagram is not just merely yet another avenue for validation - for people dealing with serious body image issues, posing shirtless can be really liberating and a life-changing experience for some.  © Instagram/tigerjackieshroff All this being said, here are a few things that you need to keep in mind, when you ask yourself, how do you deal with your body hair: 1. Own It Up © Instagram/siddhantchaturvedi As redundant as this may sound, own up to the fact that you have body hair, and that it is actually an option available with us men to let our body hair just be. No one else should be making this decision for you and honestly, no one else's opinion should matter in this subject, and certainly, not some bloke on the internet who you probably have never met.  That being said, do have a word with your partner, about their preferences, and only pay heed to them if what they ask of you, is something that you are comfortable with.  2. Trim, Instead Of Shave © iStock This is the easiest and safest option if you do decide to get rid of your body hair. Yes, you may have to trim twice as often as you would have had to shave, but the effort is totally worth it. With shaving, not only is there a chance of getting a knick or a cut, but also a chance to get rashes, razor burns and ingrown hairs at the most inconvenient of places.  Trimming mitigates all of these issues while giving you a smoother feeling skin. Plus, trimming allows you to dictate whether you want to completely get rid of your body hair, or have a faded effect.  3. Use A Hair-Removal Cream © Queerty A hair-removal cream is also a viable option, especially if you want to get rid of your body hair completely. Using a hair-removal cream ensures that the hair does not grow back as quickly as it would have, had you trimmed. Do keep in mind though, that this process takes more time, and is actually quite messy at times.  4. Waxing Is Actually A Great Option © iStock Before you start shouting blasphemy, do consider that waxing is one of the cleanest options that you can go for. Yes, it is painful and can be a real tear-jerker for some men, but if you have the threshold for pain, then this is an option you should consider. Waxing provides you with the best finish, all the while ensuring that you don't get the hair back anytime soon. There's also the added benefit of getting the top layer of your skin, which is normally all dark and dull, removed in a far better and efficient manner.  5. Laser Hair Removal Can Be Viable © iStock This is one of those solutions that will take time, but the results last for a lifetime. Well not literally, but, they do certainly last for years, if not decades, so only consider this option if you are absolutely certain of getting rid of all your body hair.  Think of laser hair removal as getting a permanent tattoo, only this one, can't be removed, ever.

Cyborg Supersoldiers From Sci-Fi Movies Are Coming & US Military Has A Terrifying Plan In Place

The idea of fusing powerful machines to a human body isn't something we learned from Cyberpunk 2077. Countless movies, TV shows, etc. have come out in the past that painted a rather terrifying picture on the use of Cyborg Supersoldiers. The thing with these cyborgs is that we don't know how the technology will evolve in, say, the next 20-30 years. It can either go in our favor, which we hope is the case, or it can go completely wrong, if it reaches the wrong hands that is. So in order to avoid a dystopian future, the US military has decided to take things into their own hands and be prepared. © Paramount Pictures A new report from US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Chemical Biological Center has emerged online and it details what this Cyberpunk tech will look like in the next couple of decades. If you go through the report and understand how they're preparing, then you'll realize that we might actually be looking at these Supersoldiers taking over the defence rather soon. The primary objective of the report is apparently to educate people on exactly how the tech works. Because the last thing you want is a huge chunk of the population getting terrified out of looking at some superhumans patrolling the roads, although that seems a bit far fetched at this point in time. I personally think that it's a great idea because these things can actually be put to good use, provided we know what to expect. © Paramount Pictures It's a cutting-edge technology, as in something which we've not seen outside the sci-fi movies. More specifically, the Pentagon's report focuses on some of the key areas where we can expect to see some advancement. These areas include supervision, augmented hearing, enhanced muscles, and a Cyperbunk tech to attach two brains and transfer data. That said, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Like, can these Cyborgs be hacked? And what happens if they do get hacked? What happens if/when a soldier decides to get rid of the enhancements and return to being a normal human being? What kind of units are we looking at? And these questions just barely scratch the surface. We're sure there'll be both positive and negative repercussions. And honestly, nobody has answers to these questions, which is what makes this whole thing quite terrifying. But if powerful people in various different positions want it to become a reality, then it'll be done no matter what. In fact, they're probably testing these Cyborgs as we speak, so we can only hope for the best. Source: Vice

If You're Losing Faith In Online Dating, Here Are 5 Men Who Found True Love At First 'Swipe'

We're in a day and time when all we have to do, to meet our significant other is a right swipe, and voila, you probably have a date, which can turn into something more serious or just fade away in time.  Welcome to the new world of dating, where relationships are mostly based on convenience and time.  We often always wonder how do we find someone we can spend the rest of our lives with? Meeting someone organically isn't that fashionable anymore because no one has the time to spend quality time looking for people at gatherings, parties or anywhere else. So, people turn to online dating, where you spend maybe minutes finding what you're looking for and sometimes it works for the best. © AA Films A lot of times, when you hit it off with someone online, you realise you have more in common with them than you thought. An absolute stranger becomes someone really important and things can get serious. Which is fascinating, to say the least. Imagine meeting someone absolutely randomly and then they change your life altogether.  Yes, online dating turning in to marriages is really not a farce and a lot of men have found true love on dating sites, which also goes on to say that most dating apps are really not just 'hook up' apps but also give you the chance to find your forever person. Don't believe me? We rounded up 5 men who've found true love over an online dating app, and they shared their experiences with us. It was literally love at first swipe! (1) Coffee? No, Thank You "We swiped on each other early morning and ended up chatting for about 5 hours post. I think this was amazing because I could talk to her just about everything! Because we both were meeting for the first time, we decided to get coffee from a nearby Starbucks. But it wasn't just coffee. After Starbucks, we hit the nearest bar and finished almost two wine bottles, laughing, chatting and exchanging experiences. It was the best date I'd ever had and I knew she was my forever someone. I guess she did too! Fast-forward two years later, we're happily married and I keep falling in love with her every day!" - Rishabh Chawala, 31 © Thinkstock Getty Images (2) Have We Met? "I first met her at a music festival, a long time ago. She was conducting a yoga class there and I happened to walk into it, without knowing what it was. She curtly told me to not disturb the class, but I couldn't take my eyes off of her! She was the most gorgeous girl I'd ever seen. Eventually, I left the class and went back to my home city and forgot about her. One day while swiping on a dating app, guess who came up? Yes, the same yoga girl! I was ecstatic and prayed hard, she'd swipe right on me, and guess what? She did! The only difference was that she didn't remember it was me! We met and spoke and about two months into dating each other, I finally told her that technically, the dating app was not the place we'd met first! She was so surprised and overwhelmed, I think it brought us closer. We're engaged now, and quite happy" - Prashant Sharma, 29 © Pintrest (3) Distance Makes The Heart Grow Stronger "I swiped on her, almost three years ago on a dating app. We spoke on and off but didn't really have a consistent conversation ever. After a while, even the little conversation we had had, faded away. A year later, somehow, she found me again on another dating app and started conversing. This time, though, the conversations seemed less monotonous and more engaging. I don't believe it took us a year for determining that we were actually great at conversations! Anyway, the only tiff was that I was in a different city than hers. But we would talk for more than ten hours a day, keeping the fire alive. Two years later, I surprised her, coming to her own city and proposing to her. We're getting married in a  few months and she's made me truly happy! I sometimes can't fathom someone from the virtual world is going to be my wife soon!" - Kartik Prashar, 36 © Hindustan Times (4) Anything Is Pawsible "We got to talking on a popular dating app mostly because of some health issues her dog was having. I have 4 dogs, so I was giving her my expertise on whatever I knew about the solution to her problem. After which, she casually asked me if I'd like to meet her along with my dogs at a popular dog cafe. Of course, she suggested she'd bring her dog too, so they can have a play date. Just the idea of being a dog parent was enticing enough for me to ask her out after that play date and we've been dating since. It's been two years and it's going strong. We're a big happy family! "- Akshay Dutt, 25 © Pintrest (5) Everything Is Fun & Games "I used to use dating apps to just hook up. I've had one serious relationship in my life that made me a little more negative about relationships in general. So, I'd swipe, go on a date with a woman and with her consent, take her back to my place. This one time, I went out with this girl and she said yes to coming over. Usually, when a girl comes over, there aren't any guesses as to what happens next! But she was different. She didn't want to sleep with me, she wanted to chat, play board games, and have some non-sexual fun. I gave in, and did whatever she wanted to and trust me, it was a lot of fun. I was actually having fun, without having sex with someone, after the longest time. I never call someone back after I've slept with them and most of the times, women are okay with that.

Neymar Finally Beat Lionel Messi To Create A New 2019 Record; Not Sure If He'd Like It Though

2019 has belonged to Barcelona FC superstar Lionel Messi who recently ended the year with a bang after being awarded the Ballon d'Or for a record sixth time to edge past Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and his legacy rival Cristiano Ronaldo in votings.  On the other hand, the year has not been that kind to the Brazilian footballer, Neymar Jr. Other than being ranked third on the Forbes list of world's highest paid athletes, 2019 has been full of injuries, rumours of club transfers and that godforsaken meme of the athlete rolling all over the field from FIFA World Cup 2018 which continues to be amusing.  But Neymar has finally taken his revenge from his former teammate and outdid him to find himself atop a very special list in which Messi is second.  According to the statistics revealed by the social media platform Twitter, the Paris Saint-Germain star became the most tweeted about male athlete in 2019. View this post on Instagram Neymar finally escapes Messi's shadow ð A post shared by ESPN FC (@espnfc) on Dec 10, 2019 at 10:00am PST However, when you come to think of it, the kind of things that the 27-year-old got involved in this year, it is not that surprising to find him in this position.  Neymar's notorious 2019 began with a swift 'punch' to a fan in the stands. Neymar met une pêche à un rennais pic.twitter.com/uXgU3R2l5Y — Claude vaillant (@vaillant92100) April 27, 2019 The man then goes on to miss his first day of pre-season training with PSG. PSG: Neymar can leave this summer with the right offer.

This is after the French club said it will take "appropriate action", after the striker missed the first day of pre-season training pic.twitter.com/I5AS9k3YsB — BFM News (@NewsBFM) July 9, 2019 After the deal between Barcelona and PSG falls apart, Neymar “agrees” to stay with the French club. Neymar Agrees to Stay at Paris Saint-Germain After Barcelona Fail to Agree Deal to Sign Forward pic.twitter.com/JXFSy3qP4i — Lantan Sport (@Lantansport) August 31, 2019 Then he compares himself to Messi because he felt that he was one of the most important members of his team. Subsequently, he called Messi “handsome” and everything stopped making sense after a point. Neymar: "I've always been one of the most important players and one of those who has led the way. At Barcelona, Messi has a different treatment. Does he have it for being more handsome? No, it is for what he has done."

You didn't have to call him ugly ffs — M•A•J (@Ultra_Suristic) October 9, 2019 However, the biggest reason behind so many tweets that mentioned Neymar's name was the infamous rape allegation being put on the athlete by a Brazilian model, Najila Trindade that first surfaced in June 2019. Due to lack of evidence, the whole case was dropped in July and the footballer walked away a free man.  Police investigating a rape allegation against Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil striker Neymar have dropped the case because of a lack of evidence, it has been reported. — Sky Sports Football (@SkyFootball) July 30, 2019 All jokes aside, it has been a difficult year for Neymar Jr. to live through. Everything that the man did was put on the internet and was examined with a magnifying glass and that has to be the reason why he became the most tweeted about male athlete this year. We hope the Brazilian catches a break and moves back to what he loves doing the most, play football.  His rape allegations
His injuries
His salary
His transfer record
The rumors of him returning to Barcelona
Rumors of him going to Real

I'm pretty sure everyone at one time discuss neymar... — mf (@Vellicreates) December 10, 2019

Since Realme has teased the wireless earbuds, we know that the Realme Buds Air look quite similar to AirPods. Other features such as "dynamic bass boost" have also been confirmed by the company.  © Realme Recently, the Realme Buds Air's price was leaked on Flipkart and it seems like the TWS earbuds will retail for Rs 4,999. The Flipkart listing has since been removed, however you can read more about it here.  © Realme If the leaked pricing of the Realme Buds Air is true, it will be quite impressive to see Realme include a wireless charging case in the box for Rs 4,999.

Virat Kohli Chases Massive T20I Record As India Aim To Secure Series Win At Wankhede

For a team that has been busy enjoying a spectacular home season, the Indian cricket team couldn't have begun the limited-overs series against the West Indies in a better manner. Thanks to a Virat Kohli special, the home side had the Windies bowling unit ducking for cover during their six-wicket triumph. With Kohli leading from the front, it was just beginning to look like a one-sided affair when the Windies staged a brilliant comeback in the 2nd T20I. Learning from the mistakes in the first match, Kieron Pollard's men produced a spirited performance to level the three-match series 1-1 on the back of an eight-wicket win at Thiruvananthapuram. © Twitter/@BCCI From irresponsible batting, mediocre fielding to ordinary bowling, the defeat in the second match left the home team with a lot to ponder over. And, it's needless to say that India will have to address a lot of inadequacies laid bare by a resolute Windies brigade in the 2nd T20I. With both the sides sufficiently comprised of power-hitters, the 3rd T20I promises to be a befitting finale. But, as the Indian team gears up to right their wrongs in the summit clash, captain Kohli will also be on the verge of achieving a major milestone in the shortest format. For someone who is no stranger to creating records, the right-handed batsman will take the field at the Wankhede Stadium, just six runs short from completing 1000 T20I runs at home. © Twitter/@BCCI With 994 T20I runs to his name at home, Kohli will be eager to join the elite list which currently doesn't feature any Indian. New Zealand's Martin Guptill (1,430 runs) and his teammate Colin Munro (1,000 runs) are the only cricketers who have amassed 1,000 T20I runs or more at home so far. During the 2nd T20I, Kohli had also surpassed his teammate Rohit Sharma to reclaim the top spot in the list of highest run-getters in the shortest version of the game. While Kohli boasts of 2,563 runs in T20Is, Rohit has 2,562 runs to his name. Both Rohit and Kohli couldn't live up to their high batting standards at Thiruvananthapuram before getting dismissed for 15 and 19 respectively. With the series perfectly poised at 1-1, senior cricketers like Rohit and Kohli will be expected to put up their best foot forward if India intends to seal the series in Mumbai on 11th December. On the other hand, two-time World T20 champions West Indies, too, will fancy their chances, especially with their strong batting line-up looking in good touch.

Twitter's Top 10 Actors List For 2019 Looks Like An 'Avengers: Endgame' Roll-Credits

Last night, Twitter went on a rampage, a year-end rampage. After literally posting every Top 10 list imaginable, they gave out so much data it's kind of hard to keep up with it. So, instead of just posting everything they shared, I'm focusing on a particular top 10 list because it's very interesting and Marvel-ous.  Here are Twitter's top 10 actors for the year 2019: Top actors of 2019 ð¬#ThisHappened pic.twitter.com/NeXkCLFxa1 — Twitter Data (@TwitterData) December 9, 2019 Notice something weird? It's mostly Avengers! Actually, it's made up of 50 per cent of Avengers, so, looks like Marvel really did rule the year. It's not really surprising since the biggest Marvel movie, and honestly, the most highly-anticipated movie - Avengers: Endgame - came out this year, MCU and its actors were bound to be the most talked-about thing of 2019. Taking the first spot, we have our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. His 'dusting' was the saddest one in Infinity War, and even though he didn't have that much screen time in Endgame, he still played one of the most important parts. I mean, Tony Stark literally invented time travel because he was sad about loosing his 'kid'. And then, with Spider-Man: Far From Home being such a huge success, and, of course, we can't forget about the entire Sony-Marvel custody battle for Tom Holland's Spidey, it's not at all surprising that he took the top spot. Next up, right behind Tom is Captain America himself. I don't even have to mention how important Chris Evans and Captain America were in Endgame. From him fighting himself to him finally wielding Mjolnir, it was the best movie for any Cap fanboy. After that, he made the internet go crazy over a sweater, yes a sweater, that he wore in Knives Out while playing a character that's the opposite of Steve Rogers in every way possible. Then, on the fourth spot we have none other than Robert Downey Jr. The man who started it all, who paved the way for MCU to become what it is today, finally left. His death was the most emotional of all, and well, RDJ actually leaving the character of Tony Stark was one of the saddest moments of the year. After that, on the seventh-place is the second-best Chris in Hollywood - Chris Hemsworth. Two words - Fat Thor. While a lot of people didn't like the fact that they made Thor fat in Endgame, I still personally believe that they showed a realistic portrayal of depression with his character. Yes, it was bit much when they used him for comic relief, but they did show him being back to his powerful self, even with a beer belly.  After that, Chris even starred in Men In Black: International with his Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson. The two, obviously, had great chemistry as their Marvel characters, and even though MIB wasn't that great, their pairing does save the movie. Lastly, rounding up the list is Mark Ruffalo. He did go through the most change after Infinity War and showed up in Endgame as half-Hulk and half-Banner. He had some of the most hilarious moments in the movie and Professor Hulk was, obviously, loved by all.  Moreover, he is a very vocal activist on Twitter and has been using his huge platform to talk about climate change and call out Trump any chance he gets. No wonder he's made it onto the top 10 Twitter list.

It Seems Running Shoes Made From Algae, Beans & Other Vegetables Are The Future Of Sneakers

Seeing that sustainable fashion is all the rage right now among high fashion brands and top designers, it was only a matter of time before a major, fast fashion brand would hitch its bandwagon to the ride that working with eco-friendly materials is. © Pexels Although sustainable footwear has been there for quite some time, they have been an extremely niche category and has been mainly limited to the lifestyle segment - sustainable footwear has primarily focused on the leisure part of athleisure. © Pexels It seems that Reebok is venturing out to change that, and in the effort, has come up with the world's first mass-produced pair of 'vegan' running shoes, and is intent on marketing them to actual, proper athletes, to use them as training shoes. © Reebok As per a McKinsey study, around 650,00,000 pairs of training sneakers are made every year for the United States of America alone. Most of these trainers, or running shoes are mainly made using some form of synthetic materials, that are derived from petrochemicals.  © Pexels Not only is the derivation of these materials an extremely gruesome and polluting task, these materials are also not easy to get rid off. Yes, most manufacturers try to recycle raw materials from these sneakers, but a major chunk of these materials ultimately end up in the landfill © Pexels Reebok's effort to join the sustainable wagon saw them coming up with Forever Floatride Grow, a line of trainers that have been made of plant-based materials, and which can actually decompose when the time comes for them to be disposed of. © Reebok The materials used to make the running shoes are as commonplace as things get - you don't deal with materials with names so complex that they hardly roll off of your tongue. Instead, you'll find materials made out of eucalyptus leaves, algae, castor beans, and natural, unprocessed rubber. © Reebok Reebok is not the only major fast-fashion brand that has delved into the world of vegan or sustainable footwear. Back in August of 2019, Nike also came up with a version of the Air Max 90s which was made of upcycled sawdust, recycled foam, and organic cotton. These sneakers came as the result of a collaboration between Nike and Maharishi, a London based streetwear label. © Nike Other than these two manufacturers, there are a number of smaller shoemakers who have been making sustainable and vegan footwear for quite some time now.  © Hypebeast However, given that sustainable pieces are often sold at a hefty premium, and are often erroneously taken to be fads, we are yet to see the market, and more importantly, the street getting proliferated.  And, considering how consumer behaviour has been in terms of sustainable clothing, it seems that such a time when sustainable footwear becomes the norm, is still some years away, at least in India.

Hip-Hop Artist Prabh Deep Wore A Shirt With PM Modi's Face Printed All Over It & It's Totally Rad

Hip-Hop Artist Prabh Deep was recently spotted at an event where he was also performing. For his stage look, he chose a very intriguing outfit. Take a look here: © Instagram/Prabh Deep His look consisted of an oversized shirt with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's face printed all over it. It's a rather quirky outfit.  Now, this is not the first time that we've seen outfits like these, that clearly are political symbols in themselves. Before and during elections, political parties make sure that 'political merch' with politicians' faces on them, is distributed far and wide.  Faces of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are the more popular prints that one would find and often times together. Rahul Gandhi is another popular face on such merch.  However, we do not think that Prabh Deep was in fact using it for the purpose that political parties use them for. In fact, we think it's a rad statement in itself because one can express a lot through clothes that one may not necessarily be able to say out loud, considering the current political climate of our country. In such a situation, being discreet does go a long way. © Instagram/Prabh Deep For the uninitiated, Prabh Deep is widely known as one of the best hip-hop artists in the country. Besides being a recording artist, Prabh Deep also pushes for and organises MC Battles. He's a singer-songwriter who's been in the industry for more than ten years now.  Prabh Deep also represents Delhi Hip-Hop as it stands today. He works in association with the record label 'Azadi records' that came to light after the recent film Gully Boy.  After, groundbreaking songs like 'Maya' and 'Amar', he's working on releasing new music album which will be out soon.

From Being On A Ventilator As A Baby To Winning A Badminton Gold, Here's Tanveer Singh's Story

What has been the biggest hurdle in your life? When was the last time you had to fight the battle of life and death? When did you truly appreciate your ability to do anything that you'd wanted to?  Chandigarh's 17-year-old Tanveer Singh has spent all his life answering those questions brilliantly.  He fought his first battle for survival at the tender age of nine months when he was struck by pneumonia. Critical and unable to breathe on his own, he was placed on a ventilator for 20 days. Despite being under constant care of his parents and those who loved him so dearly, Tanveer had to depend on assisted breathing until 2014. That's not all. When Tanveer was about two years old, his parents had discovered that he was suffering from Intellectual Disability (ID) and had somehow developed a speech impediment. Despite going through multiple operations he continues to struggle while speaking. But the 17-year-old has the heart of a lion. A born-fighter, not only does he live his life the way he wants regardless of all of the struggles and difficulties, he is also making the most of it.  With a great amount of support from his family and loved ones around him, Tanveer was able to realise his true potential and joined the game of badminton nearly three years ago. Practicing his strokes for hours every day, he perfected his forehand and became a rather powerful force to reckon with on the court.  "Hats for to his family for giving him so much love and support,” his coach Sheetal Negi tells MensXP. “When he was 10-years old, his father would ask him to ride a cycle and play some football also.” Coming from an academic background in the psychiatric department of sports, coach Negi had to be the perfect fit for Tanveer. She'd coached and trained kids without ID in the past but when she was given the opportunity to work with an organisation as special as Special Olympics Bharat, she didn't think twice before saying 'yes'.  “Ever since joining Special Olympics Bharat in 2016, I have had many chances of going back to a normal government job but I want that job,” she says. “Salary does not matter to me. If we have to bring inclusion in our society, we have to come forward and help those who need it the most.” According to coach Negi, Tanveer is an excellent student. “All I need to do is clear the basics of badminton for him and he takes care of the rest on his own.” Regardless of how gifted of an athlete Tanveer may be, he did get some additional help from his doubles partner, Sanyam Grover. A 17-year-old who does not suffer from any of the conditions Tanveer goes through but is still inseparable from him.  An excellent shuttler himself, Sanyam currently holds a top 10 national rank in the under-19 circuit and is rather confident about his skills with the racquet. “We are the society. If we have the opportunity to make a special person become a part of us, we must do it,” Sanyam tells us. “My parents got to know about this opportunity before me and agreed to it in one go.”  “Tanveer has taught me how to increase my patience level. He has a very natural smiling face and he stays happy even in the most stressful situations. I have learnt to stay calm under pressure-situations,” Sanyam said. © SO Bharat But this bond between the two badminton players wasn't this good from the beginning. Being a special athlete, it was difficult for Tanveer to come in sync with Sanyam and vice versa. Here again, coach Negi played a crucial role in making the two athletes form a powerful unit.  “Back when Tanveer and Sanyam were to be made partners, their chemistry wasn't that great. So for the first few days, I took them to fast-food joints let them spend some happy, friendly time together and eventually they best this great duo,” coach Negi said.  The result?  Tanveer & Sanyam went on to win the gold medal for India at the Unified Badminton Championship 2019! © SO Bharat “ The whole city knows of his participation!”, said Tanveer's father, Mr Tejinder Singh. “Sports makes a lot of difference. The Special Olympics platform definitely provides a transformational opportunity for children like Tanveer to demonstrate their talent and also in kindling a feeling of pride in representing their city or country. I am even thinking of building his career in sports. People have suggested other career options, but I feel nothing quite matches up to sports.”

Shah Rukh Khan Wearing The 'Rolls Royce Of Watches' Is Why People Call Him King Khan

We often wonder what does it take to entice someone who has the entire world at his feet. What could entice someone like Shah Rukh Khan, who, literally, rules over the kingdom that we call Bollywood?  © PTI In a number of interviews, he has stated that his most prized possession is his house, mainly, because of sentimental reasons. When it comes to materialistic things, however, it seems that King Khan has a soft spot for watches. © Instagram/iamsrk It comes as no surprise, therefore, that Shah Rukh Khan is really into horology (the art of making clocks and watches). Having endorsed some of the best watchmakers the world has ever seen, and having a keen interest in timepieces ever since he was a child, the king of Bollywood knows his Rados from his Rolexes.  © PTI Naturally then, it would have been impossible for a horologist of Shah Rukh's stature to not have a Patek Phillipe. For people who aren't that into watches, Patek Phillipe timepieces are the most exquisite watches that money can buy. Think of them as the Rolls Royce of watches - exquisite, exclusive, reliable, and with a long and coloured legacy.  Patek Phillipe also made the most expensive watch to be ever sold. © Patek Philipe Recently, King Khan was wearing one of their most well-crafted pieces. Shah Rukh Khan is seen here wearing the Patek Phillipe Aquanaut 5968A. The A stands for Automatic, which means that the watch, does not need a battery to operate, neither does it need to be manually wound like most mechanical watches. © Instagram/gaurikhan The watch has a fair number of complications and falls under the category of a chronograph. Although the watch has a fairly simplistic aesthetic and design, the watch, by no means, is simple. © Patek Philipe For example, the Swiss timepiece is painstakingly handmade and normally takes about 300 man-hours to just make the calibre or the movement of the watch. Barring the housing and straps, the watch is made with all sorts of plush and exotic materials. The dial, for example, is embossed with gold and has a luminescent coating.  © Patek Philippe Furthermore, the front and back glass elements of the watch are actually made of sapphire crystals, which make it one tough timepiece. So much so, that the watch is actually capable of working without any flaws, at 120 metres below water. © Patek Philippe Of course, a watch as exquisite as this is going to be expensive. The Aquanaut 5968A retails for 38600 Swiss Francs or roughly just shy of Rs 30,00,000. Add the regular 28 per cent import duties that you have to pay when you buy a luxury piece such as this, and the price comes out to be Rs 38,40,000. The watch truly is fit for a king. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the rest of King Khan's ensemble, we have to say, they are as classy and exquisite as his watch. The black jacket, with its offset placket and quasi-double breasted aesthetic, is a masterpiece and so are his tasselled boots. © Viral Bhayani Take a bow, King Khan, that's one classy way to dress up.
