Social Media Star Famous for Climbing Mountains in Bikinis Freezes to Death After 20 Meter Fall

This beautiful woman is just another victim of the social media age.

A Taiwanese woman known as the “Bikini Climber” for climbing dangerous mountains crags while wearing a bikini was found frozen to death after a 20-meter-fall, a report says.

She probably knew that this would happen one day, and she had reported been seriously injured in the past from her obsession with social media.

Gigi Wu, 36, was renowned on Taiwanese social media for climbing mountains in a bikini and posting sexy photos from mountain peaks. Not only did she climb without protection from the elements, but she also climbed without companions — a dangerous game even with clothing! Sadly, Wu made one climb too many.

Eight days into a 25-day solo hike on Saturday Wu reportedly called a friend to say she’d fell down a ravine in Central Taiwan’s Yushan Mountain. She also said she was trapped at the bottom of the ravine with a broken leg and could not get out, Taiwan News reported (via the New York Post).

Due to weather conditions, rescuers could not reach Wu for over a day.

Authorities said that the tempers had fallen to freezing overnight.

By the time Wu was fund she had already died from exposure.

According to the Post:

Wu, who also went by Wu Chi-yun, was a local social-media star who posed on some of Taiwan’s highest peaks in barely-there outfits.

In one image, she stands in a rainbow bikini and blue hat, with treacherous boulders in the background.

On Christmas Eve, she shared an image showing her scratched-up legs after being injured in a fall that she said she was lucky to survive.

Mark this as yet another person essentially committing suicide in pursuit of Internet and social media fame.

This beautiful woman is just another victim of the social media age.

Petty New Paperback Aims to Expose Trump as Cheater…in Golf

Given the current state of our nation, the President’s golf habits seems like an entirely silly thing to write a book about.

Donald Trump Golf

As 2019 grinds forward, preparing to make way for yet another tumultuous election season, it seems that anything is fair game in the realm of mudslinging against our President. This shouldn’t be seen as a wholly new phenomenon, however, as Donald Trump has been in the crosshairs of a number of schemes and scams aimed at detracting from his presidency, or calling the legitimacy of it into question.  RussiaGate was merely the most obtuse and most widely reported bit of “resistance” schtick out there, but a whole myriad of other attempts to delegitimize and embarrass the President have been ongoing for some time. The latest, and maybe the pettiest of these attacks is now upon us in the form of an entire book about the ways in which the President cheats at golf. From pulling a fast one on Tiger Woods to exaggerating his handicap, Donald Trump’s alleged misdeeds on and around the golf course are the subject of a new book by former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly, “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.” Reilly documents dozens of examples of underhanded golf behavior by the president, transgressions talked about by pro golfers and duffers alike. “In golf, he’s definitely not exonerated,” Reilly told The Associated Press. “There’s been dozens and dozens of people that can declare him guilty of cheating.” What can someone expect from such a misguided missive? One infamous instance came in a 2017 round with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, who is the current No. 1 player in the world. The president’s playing partner, Fox Sports golf analyst Brad Faxon, reported that Trump’s offenses included putting down a score that didn’t account for two balls he hit into the water on one hole. “You’ve heard so much about it, it’s almost like you want to witness…

LeBron James Discovers that Michael Jordan is STILL the GOAT in the Public’s Eyes

…And it wasn’t even CLOSE.

LeBron James may be the media’s favorite liberal athlete, but in the public’s eye, Michael Jordan still takes GOAT status, and it isn’t even close. James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon. But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT. As Business Insider noted: Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best. Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements. But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle. The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status. Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry. Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.
