We’ve got a love/hate relationship with Riverdale. It is one of the most ridiculous shows on TV yet we can’t stop watching it (trust us, we’ve tried!)

Season four has been as crazy as ever before. Last week’s episode being one of the most bizarre of all. The FBI let a 17-year-old disarm a bomb, Edgar Evernever built his very own rocket and Cheryl is keeping her dead brother’s body in the basement of her house.

The show is absolutely surreal and a lot of the storylines are so far fetched, but this latest fan theory has blown our minds.

Fans believe Jughead is actually writing a book and everything happening in the show is actually just a figment of his imagination.

It makes so much sense, right?

Jughead is the show’s narrator after all so this theory is pretty believable. One of the first things Cole Sprouse’s character says in season one is; 

“This story is about a town, a small town and the people who live in the town…"

One fan explained the theory on Reddit: "That's why the episodes are "Chapters", and why Jughead is narrating the opening and ending of each episode. This is all part of his novel(s)."

We have to admit we’re loving this theory because Riverdale can be a little too ridiculous at times, but it is our guilty pleasure.

A new episode of Riverdale airs on Netflix this Thursday, October 31.

Just when you thought you knew absolutely everything about Friends, an eagle-eyed fans spots something that stops you right in your tracks. 

Whether it's pointing out how much of a d*ck Ross actually is, or highlighting the blink-and-you'll-miss-it filming errors, it seems that fans of the show love to analysis every little detail. 

However, the latest fan-theory to come to light actually makes a lot of sense. 

According to Metro.co.uk, one Twitter user has come to the conclusion that Monica and Ross HAD to be brother and sister in order for the sitcom to work. 

It seems that had the pair not been blood relatives, everyone would have sided with Carol in the divorce, meaning the show's dynamics would have been thrown completely off balance. 

While the theory has not yet been confirmed by any of the show's creators, many Twitter users seem to think Emily's hypothesis was bang on the money. 

However, many others were quick to jump to Ross' defence, reminding fans of the show how it how Carol who cheated on Ross – not the other way around.

We simply adore the insane theories floating around about the finale of HBO's Game of Thrones. Hook it up to our veins; we simply can't get enough. No matter how unlikely or fantastical the theory seems, we're suckers for conspiracies.

This latest one truly has us shook, and it's essentially the matter of Drogon possibly having a royal baby of her own. Yes, you read that right…MORE DRAGONS?

We are well aware of how clever George RR Martin and the show-runners are, and they truly love a good twist in the scaly tail. Eagle-eyed fans are speculating that a clue is hidden in plain sight, in the season eight theme tune.

Did Daenerys Targaryen’s most badass dragon have babies? The theme song relates to Dany's most valuable dragon, who has been absent from the tail end of season four until halfway through season five with no explanation.

Well, what if good old Drogon is actually FEMALE and spent her spare time laying eggs and hatching new dragons. One of the rings in the theme tune has four dragons clearly branded on it, with one larger than the other three.

Imagine if Mrs Drogon flew back to absolutely torch Euron Greyjoy's fleet and the Red Keep with her spawn? We would be absolutely shrieking with the drama.

Meanwhile a fan on Reddit, Justzxcvbnm, suggested;

"Drogon is the only one who disappeared, the only one who drove herds and took them all like roasted sheep. What made me rethink this theory was after I saw an episode five promo where Euron Greyjoy looks up at the sky and hears a roar of himself."

"Hears that the 'grunt' is very different and gets scared. Since he has seen the dragons for a long time he wouldn’t be scared for just a dragon, but what if theres more dragons? They also came up with counter-arguments to those convinced that Drogon is male."

It's believed in Westeros by Septon Barth and Maester Aemon that dragons don't have a defined sex, but this means that they can possibly change sex if needed.

Dany is currently down two dragons (RIP Rhaegal and Viserion), so this plot twist is absolutely crucial for her takedown of Queen Cersei Lannister and King's Landing.

Rhaegal tragically lost his life last week at the hands of Euron, and we're betting Danaerys wants cold, hard revenge. We want it too.

Poor Viserion was murdered by the Night King and then turned into an evil blue-eyed wight that could breathe crystal flames. Thank God for Arya Stark and her ninja ways for ending that mess.

Stay tuned to see whether this amazing theory comes to life, we are PRAYING that it does for Dany's sake. If her character arc ends in her madness we will be writing letters to DB Weiss and David Benioff.

Someone pick us up off the cold, hard ground, because we are CONFUSED as hell after hearing the latest conspiracy theory regarding the Kardashians.

The famous family are absolutely embroiled in the drama (where else would they be?) after Tristan Thompson allegedly cheated on Khloe with Jordyn Woods, AKA Kylie Jenner's bestie.

Tristan is the father of Khloe's daughter, True Thompson, and has been caught up in his fair share of infidelity scandals himself, having cheated on Khloe while she was pregnant multiple times. Classy.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Khlo(@khloekardashian) on

Brace yourselves for this next part, because the Konspiracy of Khloe Kardashian is about to let a Kat out of the bag. It's major.

Fans are now speculating that Khloe created Jordyn Woods as a "honey trap" for Tristan, knowing he would cheat and create yet another scandal. All for the next season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Yup, people genuinely think the family are orchestrating this chaos. Kris Jenner specifically, which we TOTALLY believe. The momager is iconic, and can spin drama from legit nothing at all.

One Twitter user wrote; "This Khloe Kardashian/Tristan/Jordyn drama screams honey trap and a season 17 story line." We have to agree, the timing is perfect. 

The family are positively gifted at staying relevant. Many presume that the only reason Khloe took Tristan back after he cheated was for this precise reason; more drama. 

Imagine planting your younger sister's 21-year-old BFF (who lives in her mansion for free) as a honey trap for your love rat boyfriend…Imagine…

Another user wrote; "The man has form, until now she's been a good friend to Kylie. I sense a set up. Tristan failed & he's out." It was all a major Tristan Test, and predictably the lad failed.

He cheated on his ex-girlfriend, who was also pregnant, with Khloe. It's not that surprising he can't change his cheater ways, is it?

Others think that Jordyn herself was in on the entire plan with the Kardashians, which is craziness at it's finest.

"Khloe Kardashian and Jordyn Woods planned this together so Khloe would have a good reason to dump Tristan – A Conspiracy," one eagle-eyed fan tweeted. We're SO here for these thoughts.

Another, even wilder, theory ponders the thought that Khloe and TRISTAN HIMSELF were in on the gag together;

"Conspiracy: Tristan Thompson didn’t really cheat on Khloe Kardashian, they made the whole thing up to make more money like Beyoncé and Jay-Z did in 2018."

This gal is referencing Beyoncé's iconic Lemonade album, which was a direct response to Jay-Z's cheating scandal with "Becky with the good hair." The general public were enthralled.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by HEIR JORDYN (@jordynwoods) on

Jordyn Woods has reportedly moved out of Kylie Jenner's home, which is probably for the best.

Khloe has also responded by posting a series of cryptic tweets about pain and betrayal, but hasn't commented herself. Kim also slammed trolls who criticised Khloe for making a public appearance at the PrettyLittleThing event.

The scandal also came out days before Jordyn launched a new false eyelash range in Los Angeles, with the model saying the most underwhelming statement the world has ever heard.

Jordyn told the crowd; "Through everything that's been going on, you know it’s been real, and Eylure has been super real." Wow, this gal's an eloquent scholar.

What conspiracy theories about the scenario do you believe? We personally are fans of the Kris Jenner "the devil works hard…" one, but maybe the entire thing was truly just a disorganised mess.

If you've been on your social media accounts recently, you most likely can't avoid the new fad; the Ten Year Challenge.

Celebrities from Mariah Carey, Trevor Noah, Amy Schumer to Caitlyn Jenner participated in the glow up experiment, with most famous faces simply proving how freakishly ageless they are.

Some participants brought humour into the fray, paralleling their image with one of another look-alike celebrity, or in Jenner's case, changing gender over the last 10 years.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Now THAT is a #10YearChallenge Be authentic to yourself 

A post shared by Caitlyn Jenner (@caitlynjenner) on

The concept of then-and-now images isn't exactly new, but it's gained massive traction over the last week. What harm could it be?

Kate O'Neill of Wired magazine introduced a new notion which essentially blew our minds, and even forced Facebook to deny her semi-sarcastic suggestion.

Her idea? That the 10 Year Challenge could be useful to any entity that’s looking to develop facial recognition algorithms about ageing.

O'Neill flipped a metaphorical table by suggesting the tech giant had initiated a trend solely to contract facial recognition data from the social network's users.

In her article, Facebook's 10 Year Challenge Is Just A Harmless Meme- Right?, she claims;

"I knew the facial recognition scenario was broadly plausible and indicative of a trend that people should be aware of. It’s worth considering the depth and breadth of the personal data we share without reservations."

Allegedly, the conspiracy translates to Facebook needing to experiment with data, and the meme proving the perfect way to achieve it.

"Imagine that you wanted to train a facial recognition algorithm on age-related characteristics and, more specifically, on age progression (e.g., how people are likely to look as they get older)," she added. 

"Ideally, you'd want a broad and rigorous dataset with lots of people's pictures. It would help if you knew they were taken a fixed number of years apart—say, 10 years." WHAT.

O'Neill is saying that the powerful technology company could use the algorithm for advertising, insurance assessment, healthcare and finding missing children. Both positive but simultaneously dangerous consequences.

Of course, this is all total speculation, unsubstantiated evidence. Yet Facebook was forced to dispel the rumours:

Do we place too much trust in sites like Facebook? Even if the challenge isn't a case of social engineering, the website has come under fire following numerous controversial claims against them.

Examples of social games designed to extract data aren't far from reality, let's cast our minds back to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

The mass data extraction of over 70 million American Facebook users was performed, and rocked the country so much that Mark Zuckerberg himself had to turn up to Congress.

Another aspect of the website which garners negative attention is their suspicious community guidelines which seem to apply more rigidly to certain types of people.

Let's face it, Facebook is already heavily involved in politics, such as the critical 2016 US Presidential election and Russian interference.

According to Kate O'Neill, major tech corporations acquiring data could be used for population control and law-and-order;

"After Amazon introduced real-time facial recognition services in late 2016, they began selling those services to law enforcement and government agencies, such as the police departments in Orlando and Washington County, Oregon."

"But the technology raises major privacy concerns; the police could use the technology not only to track people who are suspected of having committed crimes, but also people who are not committing crimes, such as protesters and others whom the police deem a nuisance," she continued.

Facebook's implication in various privacy concerns has created a tumultuous relationship between the tech giant and its users.

O'Neill is definitely right about one thing- data is one of the most powerful currencies, so don't spend it dangerously.

“Regardless of the origin or intent behind this meme, we must all become savvier about the data we create and share, the access we grant to it, and the implications for its use."

Buzzfeed have disclosed a Disney theory from fans on Tumblr that proves an undeniable link between Tangled, Frozen and the classic Little Mermaid movies.

We are obsessed with this right now, we hope Disney confirm!

Ok so, let’s get into context.

As some of you may know, there is a cameo by Rapunzel and Eugene in Frozen, see here:

disney_theory

Hmm, what were they doing there? Well, as we know, Frozen is set three years after the sinking of the King and Queen of Arendelle’s ship which killed them.

And Tangled was released exactly three years before Frozen.

It doesn’t say where the King and Queen were going but the timeline suggests they could have been on their way to Rapunzel and Eugene’s wedding which they didn’t make tragically. Which could be why Rapunzel and Eugene decided to attend Elsa’s coronation in Arendelle.

Also, the mapped area of all three movies is very close, as this fan wrote: “Kingdom of Corona is in Germany. Kingdom of Arendelle is in Norway. The Little Mermaid was near Denmark. What if the sunken ship in The Little Mermaid is the king and queen of Arendelle’s?”

We’ll just have to spend the weekend watching all three. You know, for research purposes.
