World-famous actor and bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger shared some kind words of encouragement and advice to League of Legends Championship Series caster Clayton ‘CaptainFlowers’ Raines.

The LCS shoutcaster posted a recently-resurfaced screengrab of a Reddit comment by Schwarzenegger where he responded to a fan asking for the actor to yell at him to “hit the gym.”

In the comment, the former Governor of California told the user that he was “not going to be that hard” on him and urged the individual to not be hard on himself. “…we all go through failure. Sometimes life is a workout. But the key thing is you get up.”

Raines, who admitted he was “incredibly unforgiving” to himself, took The Terminator star’s words to heart. He wrote that they meant a lot as he’d looked up to Arnold for his entire life.

“Thanks for writing these words,” he concluded, tagging the Austrian in the tweet. “You’re a man among men.”

Little did Raines know, Arnold was going to not only read the kind message, but respond directly to him in a quote tweet.

In a heartwarming reply, the 72-year-old gave the LCS caster some advice going forward.

“Always remember that beating yourself up takes energy you could be using on actions to build yourself up and make you feel better instead of using that energy to tear yourself down,” he proclaimed.

The original screengrab of the Reddit post by Schwarzenegger has since gone viral on the MadeMeSmile subreddit where it was up-voted 77,000 times.


The Predator star even ended up replying directly to the post with a similar message he gave to CaptainFlowers. “Any energy you waste being negative about yourself is energy you can’t use to improve yourself so you feel better,” he advised.

One has to wonder if this is the last we’ll see of Schwarzenegger interacting with League personalities or if he’ll be back at it again.


Russian Instagram influencer torches his $150,000 Mercedes on purpose

An Instagram influencer literally set his own $150,000 Mercedes Benz on fire after he got fed up with how his local dealership was repairing it.

Several videos of Russian Instagram and YouTube star Mikhail Litvin torching the black GT 63 S went viral over the weekend, with people around the internet both amazed and horrified that someone has enough extra cash rolling around they can just send a luxury car up in flames.

But, Litvin’s display surprisingly wasn’t just a random instance of pure, nihilistic capitalism captured on film, as he claims he was sending a message to his local Mercedes dealership and the company as a whole.

The saga begins like this: Mikhail bought a brand new GT 63 S (running around $140,000 to $160,000) and somehow, broke the engine five times in a row through various automotive shenanigans.

Eventually, he became fed up with how his local Mercedes Benz dealership was repairing the vehicle each time he brought it in, even replacing the turbo kit with one purchased off of eBay at one point.

Paying to have sub-par parts installed in his car seems to have been the final straw for the Russian, who filled his trunk up with gasoline and brought plenty of cameras to a deserted field to send his vehicle off with a Viking funeral.

After bathing the car in fuel, Litvin lights a Looney Tunes-style trail from offscreen and the poor four-door goes up in a massive fireball.

Litvin made sure not to miss a spot.

After contemplating all the memories he had in the Mercedes while the inferno raged behind him, the YouTuber drove into the sunset with his new whip, a classic teal Lada that only needed a little bit of a running start to get going.

With over 11 million followers on Instagram and 4 million subscribers on YouTube, chances are good that Litvin will be picking up a fly new car sometime soon to replace the smoking heap that was his GT 63 S.

Exactly what he’ll replace it with remains to be seen, but we’d bet he’ll have a video out about it when he does.
