Need a laugh? This should do it. Mason Brian Barclay, a teen and self-described “very homosexual male,” asked his friend’s mother through text if he could attend her sleepover. She could’ve just responded yes or no, but nope. She had a hilarious response that has now gone viral after Barclay posted it to Twitter. Her answer was yes, by the way. Peep it below!

This is something I might have tried to do back in high school, but definitely not in college. On the first test of day of the semester, Assistant professor Reb Beatty at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland got a pretty big surprise, pun intended, when one student brought in a 3×5 foot poster of notes. See, Professor Beatty allows his students to use a 3×5 inch card for notes, which is pretty common in college for tests.
If you’re like me, you like to get a sneak peak into the fancy life. I’d never own a house this big because a. I don’t have five million dollars, b. I would get lost inside and c. That’s just too much to clean. But I would take a bath here. And just hang until someone kicked me out. The estate is over 4,000 square feet and features five bedroom and five and half baths. Plus, there’s two clubhouses, a pool and a bocce court. Check out the pictures here. Anyone want to go halfsies?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
