Still not as bad Bella Thorne making $1mil in a day on Only Fans with a 3 pack of "normal" pictures and replying to DMs. The newly 18 year old Bhad Bhabie is apparently going to be a lil more...revealing/NSFW.

Her earnings for 6 hours is kind of incredible though. Bella Thorne's massive 24 hour earnings caused OF to put limiters in for new users on how much they can make until established. Under old rules Bhad Bhabie's earnings would have been easily north of $2mil.


Am I the only person who doesn't have a clue what this post is saying, or who the people are being referred to?

lol

This is what you want, you're much better off not wasting brain cells on it. I'm jealous. lol


Yeah, believe me, I'm not running out to try and figure out what you guys are talking about. I have zero interest.

Just for you, Turbo:

Bella Thorne = actress
Only Fans (OF) = subscription site (w/ adult content)
‘Normal’ Pictures = not porn
DM = direct message
Bhad Bhabie = Dr. Phil show villain / teen rapper
NSFW = not suitable for work
Limiters = OF’s cap on creators’ earnings


I knew about DM and NSFW, but the rest, I had no clue and plan to keep it that way.

Thanks for the explanations. lol

No problem. Your time is definitely better spent pondering other matters. [smile]

I had the same basic knowledge as Turbo. After reading this I looked on youtube at the biggest "hit" video from bad baby. I almost made it through a minute of it. Good grief.

The story on Bhad Bhaby is that she appeared on Dr. Phil a few years ago as a troubled teen and had a memorable catch phrase that became an internet meme. In response to a comment to which she took offense, she said Catch me outside, how about that? (meaning she wanted to fight after the show), but it sounded like Cash me outside how bout dat?. She leveraged her meme status into a marginally successful rap career; however, her most notable work (aside from Dr. Phil) is now probably selling adult photos on Only Fans, from which she earned over a million dollars in a few hours after she turned 18. The whole thing is odd.

To be fair I know all of that from two articles. Once when Bella Thorne went viral for making her million and then the one today about the Dr Phil girl. Then I think I read an article about how all the 'adult content' media creators all had mental breakdowns because of the limits Bella Thorne caused for them. Which something about girls crying because they could only sell a picture for $30 instead of $100 was just kind of comical.

This is funny because it reminds me of Zoolander, when it used to be a joke how someone could be "professionally good looking". And now it's more true than ever.

I'm happily ignorant of who Bella Thorne is but I am familiar enough with Bhad Bhabie to know who she is and why she's "famous". I've also heard of Only Fans but mostly as a meme, from content creators that wouldn't typically be the type to have an Only Fans making jokes about starting their own account on Only Fans.

Not really, I think that is a pretty good summation of current popular culture and what it means to be a celebrity today.

That’s ridiculous. I don’t know anyone who pays more than $1,000 for bath water.

I hate anything that requires me to gather quotes or shop around. Trying to find the right mix of quality, customer service, and decent price seems impossible. I contacted a company for a concrete patio install and while they get good reviews the price was in line with including gold flakes in the concrete. Then I need to replace windows and suddenly get 3 calls a day from four different people at the same company to set up an in person quote.

Why must it be so complicated?

I do think we're in an age where there are tool to help with this (Angie's list, general internet ratings, etc.), but prices are comically inflated for some things. We too are replacing windows on our house for the first time, and we quoted out two of the most known/respected windows (Andersen/Pella). The quote we got from Andersen was 2x what I expected. The quote from Pella was identical. All family members I ran it by thought they were high, but asking around my area and obtaining multiple quotes suggest it's the going rate. Which is outrageous.

I've heard horror stories from people who have used the TV replacement window/door companies, but after seeing the dollar amounts on the respected ones, I understand why people go that route in the first place.....

I’m terrified to get a quote on any home improvements these days. When I bought my home 6 years ago, I figured it would cost $10K to add a bathroom in the basement. Now I’m sure it’s $20K. Heck, my Zillow value went up 6% just in the last week. It’s crazy out there.

So accurate. I have no doubts that any homeowner would do well in selling or in tapping equity right now. But home improvements are insanity based on a couple of projects we've done over the past couple of years. Handyman stuff is still fair and reasonable, but any sort of major replacement/project is $$$$$$.

I was hoping to keep my window project under $10k (not a huge house and just a one story), but am guessing that will not be the reality. The windows would probably be fine if the previous owner had cared for them, but thus the wood crank out windows are completely garbage at this point...and I hate crank out windows.

I really didn't want to take on the window project, but thus I didn't have much leverage in the 2020 real estate market. I suppose I should be happy I was able to sucker a little money after the inspection to put towards windows when in some areas of the county $20k+ over asking was happening.

I was assuming $10k for nicer, brand-name windows (I'm replacing 9 double-hung) non-wood (our old ones are wood and I generally hate how they wore over the years). The quote was double what I assumed. Nearly identical quotes from Pella and RBA.
