The internet is full of news. Mostly it’s useless pieces of information that you never knew you needed, till you actually knew them, but in case you missed lurking this week and don’t want to miss out on a conversation with your friends about the interwebz, we got you covered with all the tiny news pieces that was trending this week.
The Egyptian Web:
Yanni became more Egyptian than most Egyptians
Yanni went all around Egypt promoting the #ThisIsEgypt campaign and posting on his social media videos and pictures of himself fangirling over Egypt. He was everywhere to the point of us making an article about it. He also got his customized chocolate, and freaked out over it.

Who knew the Greek musical god could be that easily impressed? Egyptians are going to space! Well, maybe not “Egyptians,” BUT Egyptian 27 year old engineer, Akram Abdellatif, is. Abdellatif has been working his way to space and did in fact manage to make his dream a reality, despite us not having any space agencies in Egypt, and NASA not providing space trips for non-Americans. Egypt is Sinking in the rain We have a very popular saying in Egypt that says “هم يضحك و هم يبكي,” and this is exactly the case in Alexandria. The streets are flooding from the rain, and it doesn’t seem like it’ll be stopping anytime soon. While some got angry towards the government, and even some are planning a new revolution, others are making memes about it. People on Twitter started the “Alexandria is drowning” hashtag, and started posting all types of funny thing about the situation. We decided to pick our favorite out for you!
The World Wide Web:
Evanescence is planning a comeback
Everyone’s favourite band planned a comeback tour, and the internet went crazy! We published the details in another article, check it out if you’re interested.
Heidi Klum killed the Halloween costume game
Miss Klum has put all of our Halloween attempts to shame by dressing up as everyone’s favorite cartoon character, Jessica Rabbit. While many dressed as Jessica Rabbit before, no one ever look as realistic (can we even say that about a cartoon character?) as she did in the movie.
A social media celeb decided to quite social media by being on social media
You read that right, and no,we’re not playing 3arosty. Essena Oneil, an Instagram model (yes, that’s a thing now) and YouTube star (yup, that’s a thing too) had almost half a million followers on her Instagram, and some hundred thousands of subscribers on YouTube. She makes a living out of her social media platforms, yet she decided to delete thousands of pictures from her Instagram, and edit the ones left saying the truth behind life on social media.
The internet used this as a chance to go crazy. Here’s the plot twist though, everything she’s saying is invalid because that’s her actual job now. Of course no one is all jolly about their work, so it seemed fishy that she’s doing all this. She then later deleted her Instagram and YouTube accounts, but announced that she’ll still be making videos for Vemo, another social media platform that’s like YouTube and has been trying to get exclusive content for quite some time now.
What can we say, the internet can be easily amused!
Finally, the Harry Potter universe is coming back on the big screen!
Saving the best for last, now aren’t we? The Harry Potter fans were pleasantly surprised by the first revealing of the new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The movie is based on J.K Rowling’s 2001 prequel for the Harry Potter series, and the movie will be lead by Oscar winning actor Eddie Redmayne.
“The film is rumored to feature an American wizarding school similar to Hogwarts, and will also visit the Magical Congress of the United States of America, the U.S. equivalent of the Ministry of Magic.”
We copied that from Entertainment weekly themselves, so it must be true.
Other than Redmayne, the movie will have Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Ezra Miller starring in it. What a nice way of making guys and girls feel bad about their looks. Way to go, guys!
