- Asking a guy you just met for recharge card
Hello TILB readers, I need your advice..I want to stop bleaching.
I'm 22, been beaching for the past 2 years now. If you see me, you wouldn't know I bleach, you will think I'm naturally fair. I use a very expensive cream my cousin in Paris sends it for me. It's very good - no hydroquinin, no mercury. I dont have dark knuckle from head to toe am flawless. I shine. If I get naked, even my friends admire me. I have been asked a number of time by strangers about the kind of cream I use. But not everyone can afford it. Thé reason I bleach is because I admiréd my cousin's skin and she introduced me to what I use now.
However, I am tired because my skin is getting thin and I am scared of thé future.

A radio station in Chile called 'Top 40' held a contest earlier this week offering their listeners tickets to the giant EDM festival Mysteryland. They asked listeners how far they’d go to get tickets and one woman who said she really, really wanted to attend said she would eat the booty of a DJ at the station.
Turns out the lady was a woman of her word, because the station tweeted out (and quickly deleted) a picture of the act taking place. See it after the cut. The photo sparked outrage online and the station had to apologize.

As soon as the penalty was awarded, someone just carried a stone and hit the referee on the head and the referee was attacked and the whole venue turned upside down and the referee was beaten black and blue which lead to us all running helter skelter for safety.”Photos continue after the cut.
Wahala dey! The anonymous hackers that leaked private information during the Darren Wilson case & hacked the official Twitter account of the KKK are after Australian rapper Iggy Azalea! And they are threatening to release screenshots from her sex tape real soon.
Trouble started yesterday after Iggy reacted to a fierce lash from singer Azealia Banks with whom she's been involved in a feud with. Azealia Banks had accused Iggy Azalea of not caring about 'black issues.' Iggy on her own has been in the news lately. You recall her hilarious, 'not so funny' brush with Snoop over a meme of Iggy with no makeup on, then Eminem over his rape threat. J. Cole diss and now this!
The Anonymous hackers are dead serious about their threat and have given Iggy 48...well 47 hours now to apologize to Azealia Banks and the protestors in NYC or she will suffer! The mean threats continue after the cut.

Boko Haram last weekend released a video threatening to attack the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, in retaliation for the Emir’s call on Kano residents and other Nigerians to arm and defend themselves against the terror organization.
