Wife Goes Viral for ‘Unfriending’ Husband on Facebook

Are you ‘friends’ with your significant other on Facebook? Of course! Most of us have Facebook accounts these days – and we certainly are friends with our loved ones on this social media but one woman has ‘unfriended’ her husband from Facebook; she has gone viral for this…

Nicole Joanne Meilat shared why she deleted her husband from her friends’ list – and it turned out that her reason for doing it was actually so relatable that many people shared her post. As of press time, it has received over 47k shares and more than 65k reactions, most of which were likes, laughs, and hearts.

According to Nicole, she constantly tags her husband on various posts on Facebook but he never ‘likes’ the post, nor does he make comments on them; yet when he would readily like and comment on nonsense posts made by his friends or the pages he likes.

This left her feeling hurt.

Then, thinking it would be better for their relationship, she ‘unfriended’ him. She was rather shocked when he didn’t even notice! In fact, it took him several weeks to realize that they were no longer friends on Facebook! Ouch.

But not seeing his posts and not being able to tag him had a good effect on Nicole. She felt much better.

And narealize ko sobrang unhealthy ng Social Media sa magpartner kailangan scripted dahil alam mong may ibang nakakabasa. Yung tipong pag nag i love you ka, kailangan may mag i love you too. Ganon kastressful haha!” she wrote.

When her husband finally realized what she did, he sent her a friend request and asked her to accept it, but she refused. No matter how hard he tried to make her accept the request, she had already made up her mind.

According to Nicole, the move actually strengthened their relationship. Because they are no longer updated on each other’s post, they began having longer, more intimate conversations at home.

To cut the story short, mas naging intimate yung relationship namin kasi parang may namimiss kami lagi sa isa’t isa kahit magkasama na kami sa iisang bubong,” she declared.

Cargo Ship Sinks with 2,000 Cars on Board, Including Lots of Luxury Vehicles

Carrying 365 container vans and 2,210 vehicles wherein 1,298 were brand new vehicles from major manufacturers, including 37 Porsche sports cars, the sinking of an Italian cargo ship off the coast of France could be one of the most expensive in history.

Italian merchant ship Grande America was on its way from Hamburg, Germany to Casablanca, Morocco when a fire hit on board as it was near the coast of France. The crew of 27 sailors struggled to put out the fire, but after many hours of trying their best, they had to make the tough decision of abandoning the ship.

With the seas being rough at the time, the sailors boarded their lifeboat but struggled to keep afloat while being surrounded by waves 16 to 20 feet high! Then, the lifeboat’s engine got damaged, leaving the sailors terrified.

The Grande America was on fire just meters away, yet the sailors could not also move away because their lifeboat’s engine would not turn on. Lucky for the sailors, the HMS Argyll from the Royal Navy came to their rescue, traveling 150 miles in rough sea conditions to rescue the stricken seafarers.

While the Grande America sank to the bottom of the sea, along with its entire cargo, all the crew were safe and accounted for. All suffered from smoke inhalation and some minor scrapes but were out of danger.

It took the Royal Navy some 8 hours to rescue everyone in the ship but everyone was just so thankful to be alive.

The cause of fire is still unknown but is believed to have started on the car deck, spreading quickly to a container.

A lot of car manufacturers were affected by the incident, with Porsche among the hardest hit with 37 sports car, including four limited edition 911 GT2 RS models. The company had only built a limited number of these exclusive sports cars and has since discontinued building the line; however, due to the unfortunate circumstances, Porsche promised to build four more to replace the ones lost at sea.

Audi has also reported the loss of several brand-new vehicles, including A3, A5, Q7, RS4, and RS5 models.

But aside from the vehicles, the cargo ship was carrying 365 containers, 45 of which contained materials that are deemed hazardous. There are 70 tons of sulfuric acid and 10 tons of hydrochloric acid – and all that is at the bottom of the sea. With more than 2,200 tons of fuel also dumped into the water, a massive oil spill is feared to hit the coasts of France.

Arrangement of Hollow Blocks in This House Construction Sparks Debate

When it comes to building a house or any structure for that matter, we all want it to be durable and built in the best manner to ensure that it would last long, could withstand regular wear and tear, and could possibly survive the forces of nature.

But a house currently under construction has gotten much attention on social media because of the ‘unusual’ arrangement used by the carpenters and masons to build the wall using hollow blocks.

Most of us are used to seeing the hollow blocks placed in alternate position to ensure that the structure will be strong, yet one house in Lagro, Quezon City used a different arrangement – all the hollow blocks were stacked, one on top of the other.

While this created a lovely parallel pattern on the wall, a lot of people could not help but wonder why the builders used this arrangement. Many commented that the builders must be new and didn’t know the proper way to arrange the hollow blocks. A lot of netizens also said that this building is not safe and could easily fall when an earthquake hits the area.

Sabi ng may ari ng bahay na Ito sa mga gumagawa sa bahay niya ‘Salamat at madali ninyo matatapos.’ Kaya lang ng Tingnan niya ang hollowblock pantay pantay ang pagkalagay! Mga fb friends anong masasabi ninyo dito sa gumawa ng bahay na Ito,” netizen Romulo Tama wrote on his Facebook account.

Pero yan po ang Stock bond design sa Japan at Saudi Arabia at America ganyan karamihan ang design ng hollowblock nila sa pag salansan.

It turned out the arrangement is not as crazy as it might sound as such as being used in countries outside the Philippines! But many netizens pointed out that these countries often used strong cinder blocks. Also, these places are not prone to earthquakes and other natural problems.

But many netizens were more concerned about not finding posts on this house! OMG. It was obvious that the corners of this house were created by the hollow blocks meeting with each other – and that’s particularly dangerous considering this is a large 2-story house.

What were the builders thinking? A stack design for the hollow blocks, in a house with no posts? Uh-oh. This could be a recipe for disaster…
