Girl Is Reduced To Tears Of Happiness After Winning A Life-Changing $11.30 From HQ Trivia


Quick question: When was the last time you cried? Like really cried. For me, it was Christmas 2016 when I went to see Manchester By The Sea with my family. For those who’ve seen the movie, I lost it when he ran into his ex-wife on the street and the excruciating words that followed, “There’s nothing there.” After fighting back the tingling behind my eyes for a few moments, I fucking lost it. My dad was sitting right next to me, I felt naked and vulnerable, but I had no choice. After the movie, we went to get a beer and I made sure to tell my dad I was whittling a coffee table for my apartment to regain some manhood. He responded, “Make sure you wear glasses, wouldn’t want any saw dust getting in your eye.” I was very close to asking him to arm wrestle.

A mild digression, I know. But I’d be lying if I told you that a good cry felt like a first masturbation after a week at sleep away camp. It was a goddamn re-awakening.

Well, a woman named Lauren May recently had herself a good cry. Over what? A death in the family Watching a Sara McLachlan abandoned dog commercial Winning $11.30 playing online trivia.

For those who are unfamiliar with HQ Trivia, it is a wildly popular app and trivia game created by the creators of Vine. It takes the form of a live game show, played twice daily. The players that correctly answer the final question split the prize money, which have ranged from $2,000 to $18,000.

Hey, good for Lauren. The post holiday bank account needs all the pennies it can get.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
