I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.

This is what happens when Candians are let lose and try to prank people

IMPERIAL RUSSIA MEME: [ /3] Grand Duchesses - Grand Duchess Olga Constantinovna, later Queen of the Hellenes

Born Grand Duchess Olga Constantinovna, in Pavlovsk, on 3rd September 1851, the eldest daughter the Grand Duke Constantine Nikolaevich, son of Tsar Nicholas I and her mother the Grand Duchess Alexandra Iosifevna, Princess of Saxe-Oldenburg. The current Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Phillip, is her grandson, his father Andrew- her fourth son.

As a child, Olga was described as a simple and chubby little girl with a broad face and big blue eyes. She was calm-tempered, though extremely shy- one one occasion, when questioned by her tutor during a lesson, she burst into tears and ran from the classroom.

In 1867, she married the newly appointed King of Greece, George I in Saint Petersburg. She was greeted in Athens with profound excitement and adoration and soon became beloved by the entire population. Her popularity was further boosted when she gave birth to a son, and heir, Constantine.

Queen Olga became the Mother figure of the entire nation during the hardships of the Greek-Turkish war. She visited the wounded and secured the welfare for the families of the soldiers fighting in Crete, via donations from her relatives and from wealthy Greeks living abroad. This marked the beginning of her extensive charitable undertaking which led to the creation of a number of foundations: the ‘Filekpedeftiki Eteria’ (schooling institution), ‘Ameleion Orfanage for girls’, the ‘School for Nurses’ the ‘Athenian Poorhouse’ the ‘Russian Hospital’ and the ‘Evangelismos Hospital’ to name a few. Finally, in an effort to invigorate the nation’s faith, Queen Olga ordered the translation of the Bible into Modern Greek- though the Greek Orthodox Church denounced this, and the controversy would follow her for many years after.

King George I was assassinated on the street on the 18 March 1913, after taking a walk without guards, an act he did regularly. Olga, who said her husband’s death was “the will of God”, visited the scene of the assassination with her family, and accompanied the body of the king back to Athens. He was buried in the royal cemetery at Tatoi Palace.

Queen Olga was in St Petersburg at the outburst of the First World War and, like many other Romanov women, established a hospital in the Pavlovsk Palace. Olga managed to return to Greece with great difficulty after the Revolution in 1917, and only after the intervention of the Danish Embassy. The former Grand Duchess suffered deeply during the upheaval of her native country; two of her brothers Grand Dukes Nicholas and Dmitri Nikolaevich, and three of her nephews John, Constantine and Igor Constantinovich were among those of the Imperial Family murdered between June 1918 and January 1919. Her son Alexander I, who had replaced his elder brother Constantine on the throne, then died from a monkey bite on the 25 October, 1920.

Olga would live to see the unstable throne of the Hellenes change hands four times in her lifetime, she herself becoming temporary regent for a short time in 1920, until the return of her firstborn. 
At this time, she went abroad to Rome, and stayed with her son Christopher until her death in 1926. She was initially interred in the crypt of the Russian Church in Rome, with King Constantine, but on the momentary rebuilding of the Greek monarchy in 1936, her body was transferred to Athens and buried at Tatoi, where she rests today.
