The Analysis K: I don’t think it’s that much of an exaggeration to say that people who only text “what’s up” all the time should be banished to an island that is slowly sinking. B: He sends this text to me every couple of weeks, on Friday…
Esquire presents their ‘25 skills every man should know’
Basics like jump-starting a car and filleting a fish you should know already. Tips like chopping down a tree and skinning a moose are kinda badass. The pastry chef metaphor for pleasing a woman
The theatrical flourishes and jabs you’ve learned from your trusty porn are like that: the frosting on the frosting. A good pastry chef uses his nibs sparingly and aims foremost for a thick, smooth application. […] Go slowly, be sedulous and heedful, and don’t stop until the cake is done.
tickles me. But this? Really? I get the idea, they’re trying to show that empathy is part of this straight-razor using, shoe-shining, Tom Waits-y gentleman gestalt, but comparing a crying woman to “a wounded animal”? Poo poo, sirs. Poor taste. Makes me think of Jimmy Stewart saying “sweetheart”
Console a Crying Woman
Keep a handkerchief on your person. A clean one, since it’s not for you. It’s for the crying woman.
When you encounter the crying woman (and she needs to be sobbing as if she’s been hurt — never approach a woman who is merely weeping or teary), approach her as if you’re advancing on a wounded animal that might still be able to bite — slowly, thoughtfully. Pull out the handkerchief.\
Say: “I’m sorry to disturb you, but is there anything I can do to help?”
Whether she responds or not, offer the still-folded handkerchief. Point out that it’s clean. This should make her laugh.
If she hasn’t yet told you to go away (and if she tells you to go away, do so immediately), ask what you might specifically be able to do: stay with her, call the police, listen to her problems, tap dance.
Proceed according to her wishes until she says she’s fine.Tell her to keep the hanky.
There might not be a basement at the Alamo, but there will be cheftestapants. According to a movie industry blogger Anne Thompson as well as Variety’s Marc Graser, Pee-Wee Herman told fans at Comic Con that he’s going to Texas to film an episode of Top Chef at the Alamo. The Alamo, of course, figured heavily in his 1985 film Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.
Hi, my name is Emma. I am Jewish, and before I go to bed, I’d like to tell you guys a little bit about what that means. Before I begin, I should add that Judaism means different things to different people because like any cultural group, we Jews are not monolithic. Not all Jews…
As if I didn’t already know and demonstrate this on the reg:
Fatty foods can make you feel stoned, and then, just like actually being stoned, can give you the munchies, according to a new study being released this week. It’s a vicious cycle that doesn’t end until the police come pry your tumescent ass off of the toilet seat with a crowbar—so take heed.
Apparently, fatty foods trigger the body to produce “a natural feel-good chemical” called endocannabinoids, which produces effects similar to pot. That part sounds pretty alright—getting stoned off of French fries?!—but the catch is that these endocannabinoids will then drive you to pig out even more. At least when you smoke pot, the “getting high” part won’t get you fat. Endocannabinoids were discovered when scientists learned that the human body can actually create its own cannabinoids, which are tiny little molecules that reduce pain and anxiety. For what it’s worth, you can also trigger your endocannabinoids by exercising, which isn’t as much fun as eating Cheeze Doodles.
This study seems to directly contradict a study last year which stated that overeating fatty foods produced effects similar to cocaine addition, which, last we checked, makes you not want to eat.
A team of researchers from the University of Illinois have created a pen with conductive silver ink that can be used to draw electrical circuits on paper, wood and other materials. Although similar pens are already available, the difference here is that the ink is bendable when dry, meaning that even if the paper is folded or bent, the circuit will still function normally.
The researchers have also been able to add components to their hand-drawn circuits, including a flexible LED display, three-dimensional radio-frequency antennas and a battery.
