BYE." "Shopping for a woman is like shopping for a car.” "The photo where the ex-girlfriend is clearly cropped out of the photo.

$312 For Water? High Rollers Slammed For Posting Exorbitant Vegas Receipts Online
Some high rollers are advertising their sky-high bar and restaurant receipts from Las Vegas on social media — admitting they are dropping hundreds of dollars on water and mid-shelf liquor. One user, who goes by the handle @Investor_NICK_ posted a receipt (from "a day party at Encore Beach Club") for $8,612. The tab included $312 for water, $75 for chicken fingers and a $825 bottle of Tito’s vodka, which has a retail value of about $30.
Responding to the social media brag, another Sin City showoff posted a $189,375 receipt from the Tryst nightclub at the Wynn Hotel — mocking the initial poster as a “rookie". His bill included four bottles of Veuve Clicquot Yellow for $100,000 — which have a retail value of about $50 each — along with $770 for a bottle of Grey Goose vodka. Other eye-popping price tags included $25,000 for a bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne and $156 for 13 Red Bulls. But observers ultimately got the last laugh — with one writing: “How many damn chicken fingers are on that platter?” to which another user quipped, “They’re covered in gold.” Others called the receipts tacky and wildly wasteful. “I guarantee you there is not a single poor person in the world who has made a purchase nearly as stupid or frivolous as this — and yet the rich have convinced us it’s *the poor* who are “bad with money." Another wrote, “They paid $312 for this,” alongside a 24-pack of Fiji water that costs $27.99. “It’s a picture of a receipt made by people who think they know what wealth is."

'Jackass' Director Claims Bam Margera Made Death Threats to Him and His Kids
Troubled prankster Bam Margera has been sending disturbing messages to 'Jackass' director Jeff Tremaine, including threatening his safety and his children’s safety. The court has granted Tremaine's request for a temporary restraining order against Bam, requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from Jeff, his wife and kids, and to stop contacting him. Tremaine claims he's been getting harassed by Bam since February. He says it all started after Bam didn’t show up for a virtual meeting to discuss how he could help Margera with his mental health and sobriety struggles. Tremaine says Bam has threatened violence, compared him to Harvey Weinstein, posted obscene drawings and made a comment that he and Johnny Knoxville can "pencil in their death certificate.” One message from Bam said: ”Look at your children and grab your pocket book and write a check, if you are greedy, and cheap, look at your children again. If you don‘t sign the paper, look at you children. Sign your stupid f***ing contract before you’re not safe anywhere." Bam claims Tremaine and Knoxville strung him along to be part of "Jackass 4" only to cut him loose over what he calls unreasonable demands.
