The FaceApp trend, where people are obsessively showing dramatically aged versions of themselves, is still flooding social media news feeds.

Are you an active participant?

Singer Mariah Carey said, "no thanks."

FaceApp, it was nice knowing you. (not really.)


Before Carey's dismissal of the viral trend, FaceApp blew up everywhere and even celebrities joined in on the fun, including the likes of Shazam! actor Zachary Levi.


NBA legend LeBron James advanced his age.


The Jonas Brothers gave us a triple dose of the weirdness.

Comedian Amy Schumer posted a twist on the fad that didn't seem to be losing any steam at the time.

Enter Mariah Carey, who on Thursday tweeted:

"FaceApp is not something I acknowledge."

The queen has spoken.

And why would the 49-year-old pop diva endorse an app that trivializes the gradual degeneration of our faces?

Not to mention, the "GTFO" singer defies the aging process anyway.

So there's that.






Suddenly, people are beginning to see the light after the Butterfly spoke.

Yes, the mobile software application is Russian-based and is in the midst of a political controversy.

Democrats fear the app could pose "national security and privacy risks for millions of U.S. citizens."

On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote a letter to FBI director Christopher Wray and FTC Chairman Joseph Simons, expressing concerns that:

"personal data uploaded by millions of Americans onto FaceApp may be finding its way into the hands of the Russian government."

Despite FaceApp's CEO, Yaroslav Goncharov, assuring The Washington Post that the app doesn't "sell or share any user data with any third parties," DNC's chief security officer, Bob Lord, echoed Schumer's concern and discouraged 2020 presidential candidates from using the trending application.

Lord wrote:

"It's not clear at this point what the privacy risks are, but what is clear is that the benefits of avoiding the app outweigh the risks."


Whatever the controversy, FaceApp is still a creepy app that needs to fade into existence already.

Many Mariah Carey fans agree with her casual lack of interest in Russia's alleged private data-stealing time suck.

Speaking of Mariah fans, you can get her CD Caution here.

Besides, when it comes to getting old, time is on her side.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
