People Are Faking Vacation Photos To Make People Jealous

It’s no secret that people post pictures of their vacations on social media to make others jealous, and it seems that need to make others envious has led to folks faking their trips.

That’s right, some people are actually posting fake vacation pictures on social media, and there’s even a company that’s making it easier to do so. Fake-A-Vacation, a photo editing service out of Nebraska, will superimpose your regular photos in front of fake backgrounds, like beaches in Miami, the waters of Niagara Falls and more, all for the purposes of showing off.

And fake vacation pictures are certainly cheaper than going on a real trip, although they are less fun. Packages start at just $19, and all folks have to do is send in their regular photos, with the company suggesting what clothes to wear for the backgrounds they choose.

The need for such fake photos is so big the company is also about to add two more options, FakeATrip, which is designed or celebrites and influencers, and GetMeMotivated, which will create travel images to inspire folks to take trips.

Woman In Jail For Sending 159,000 Text Messages To Guys

Woman accused of harassing man with 159,000 texts: 'I can't believe that I'm actually in jail over some text messages'

A woman accused of sending a man more than 159,000 text messages and breaking into his Arizona home wants her case to go to trial, believing a jury will find her innocent while also ordering her and the man she is accused of stalking to wed.

Ades' case has garnered national attention after authorities said she continued to stalk a Paradise Valley man after a single date, broke into his home and sent thousands of text messages to him over the course of 10 months, including some in which she threatened to wear his flesh and devour his organs, according to Maricopa County Court records.

She maintained that her threats against the man's life were jokes that she would never act on. She said the man responded to her texts for three months but stopped after she sent the threats. Ades said she threatened the man after a fight with her mother and took out her anger on him.

The Meltdown-Free Way To End Your Kid’s Screen Time

Most kids are less than happy when screen-time comes to an end, but for some little ones, the post-screen-time meltdown is real. Their parents have learned that the moment the TV, iPad, or other device gets turned off, the whines, tears, and sometimes screams start up. Lot of us use the “five-minute warning” with our little ones, but when that doesn’t help brace them for the shutdown, it’s time to try a new tactic to stop the tantrums.

When it’s time for screen-time to end, instead of just telling your kid it’s over, take a minute to sit down with them and get into their world for a sec. Watch their show with them or hang out and watch them play their game for a little bit and share their experience. It doesn’t take long, even half a minute can do it. And then ask them a question about their show or game.

The strategy comes from French clinical psychologist Isabelle Filliozat and the idea is basically to put yourself into your kid’s screen time world, so you can gently bring them back to real life. That little bit of time and the question bridges the gap for your kiddo and makes the transition feel less abrupt.

Your kid might still be bummed it’s time to turn it off, but this could help you avoid a full-on meltdown. And you’ll finally get to find out why Mom Tiger is mad on “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.”
