Chloe Ting workouts DON’T work! Gained 15 pounds—Scams, Swindles, and Schemes

We’re vaxxed, relaxed, and ready to discuss hacks! We made it to our sixth episode, and thought about celebrating with a workout before realizing it was pointless. Also, one of our loyal viewers wrote in with a story about a lifehack that was actually brilliant as it was useful! After buying a stroller at a yard sale two years ago, she was able to get a brand new frame from the manufacturer. All without telling a single lie! Reach out to us via Twitter, buy us a coffee, subscribe to our YouTube channels—and let us know what the make and model of the first car you drove down in the comments.

Chloe Ting tricked Onicia into exercising

Onicia discovered Chloe Ting and has some surprising news. She has lost +15 pounds since January! Devin became upset because this forced him to do math, but they were able to (mostly) objectively discuss the pros and cons of workout regimens and their promises. The thumbnail that originally piqued Onicia’s interest promised abs in ten minutes. She decides this is a scam for good, but that hasn’t stopped her muscles from screaming in rebellion. Remember to engage your core!

Lifehack: 90% discount on fancy $200 baby stroller!

One of our dedicated subscribers contacted us to tell us a pretty cool story. She bought a used stroller at a yard sale (retail value $200) for $20. It may have been about a year old at the time, and she was able to get a couple of years of use out of it. She’d been taking some vigorous pandemic walks in Chicago in the winter, so you know they were the real workout from this episode. Unfortunately, the handle broke off when she pushed the kid up a snowbank! But after contacting the manufacturer, blacking out a serial number, and sending in some pictures as proof, a brand new stroller frame was delivered!

Question: Have you ever gotten something brand new from something you bought used?

Is that toothpaste or is that soap?

Our adventures in social media hacks continue! After discovering a video on Instagram, Onicia had to see Devin’s reaction and he did not disappoint. Someone had the bright idea of putting toothpaste into soap containers to make life easier, because squeezing a toothpaste tube is so hard? After discussing the practical ramifications of this supposed innovation, we get over our confusion and revulsion to render a judgment in our customary fashion.
