America the Beautiful: America Olivo has had an interesting rise to semi-stardom. She got a degree in Opera at Juilliard, which led to a stint touring China with Ricky Martin (does… not… compute). Then she formed a latin music supergroup called Soluna. Now she’s appearing in slasher flicks and episodes of House, M.D. It may have been a long and winding road, but we’re so, so happy she’s finally here. (Read our interview of America here.)
Kick-Ass: That’s not just a random expression in this context. It’s literally the name of a movie that’s opening today around the country. In it, a teen comic-book-lover decides he can monkey-see/monkey-do what he’s been reading about. He gets a suit, a mask and an alter-ego named… Kick-Ass, naturally. The fact that he has no superpowers to speak of would seem to be a minor inconvenience.
MONEY BRINGS PUSSY: This phrase is trending big-time on twitter. The sentiment would seem to be in the “obvious” category, but I bring it to your attention for one reason. The trend-tracking service whatthetrend.com interpreted the tweet bonanza a little differently, stating “Cats are expensive, you need money to take adequate care of them”. Nice.
Heart Tattoo: You know how your grampa always sits around the house, grumbling about “those kids and their damn neck tattoos”? Well, he may want to re-think his anti-ink bias. The most recent tech innovation to protect wireless pacemakers from being hacked is a password tattoo. The good news for paw-paw is that the tats are only visible under UV light, so he can still project that unmarked ruddy glow he’s been sporting all these years.
Nautical NASCAR?: Hot Rod designer Rick Dobbertin will now allow us to redden our necks while floating in inner tubes. He’s designed a wet/dry racecar that would look completely at home in the next X-Men movie. He calls it HydroCar. The 8,000-lb. vehicle automatically runs out pontoons for water driving, which can be really handy if you live in, say, Hawaii.
Danger is Sexy: Arianny Celeste is an uber-hot Octagon Girl for the UCF. Not content to rest upon her consiberable laurels as a hottie, Celeste took up the challenge and began training in mixed martial arts herself. She says she likes to date computer nerds, and that she’s double-jointed. **Sigh** The world can be such a wonderful place sometimes.
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
