For a woman in today’s society, you can never be too careful. How many times have you heard “don’t leave your drink unattended” or “don’t let a stranger make you a drink”? Well, this is because of the use of date rape drugs, like roofies, GHB, and Xanax. These drugs are often slipped into unsuspected females’ drinks and it puts them in a position in which they are unable to defend themselves. The odorless, tasteless drugs are impossible to detect, until now.
Four college students from North Carolina have invented a nail polish that has the ability to detect these practically undetectable drugs. The polish will change color when it makes contact with any of the “date rape” drugs. With a subtle swirl of your finger you can find out if your drink is safe or not.
You’ve just broken up with THE ONE. Now what? With social media ruling the world, we know you want to take your emotional thoughts to twitter, and showcase you post-break up life on Instagram. Well, before you start posting selfies, take a look at the 5 things you probably shouldn’t post off bat.
1. The Quote – this might be the worst, so we will start here. Whether you Google an image of a heartfelt quote from The Notebook with a beautiful ocean in the background, or you decide to be slightly innovative and type up your own quote in the “notes” section of you iPhone, it doesn’t matter. We can assure you, we don’t care. “As long as I tried, that’s what matters.” A break up is a private happening and doesn’t need to be shared with the world. (Unless you are Beyonce, then you can disregard this entire list.) Therefore, the subtle words of finalization are much less subtle than you think and they are simply a way to open the doors and invite people into your personal life.

Many of us have heard about 3D printers and all of the cool things they can make--from furniture, to toys, even to healthcare goods, the potential seems limitless. And yet the astronomical price of the printers have limited the accessibility for many, slowing down the cool ideas that the printers can create. However, starting today (August 5th), that tide is turning, as NYC-based company, Solidoodle, has launched their very own 3D printer for under $600.
The company has taken the complexity out of 3D printing, making it easier than ever for anyone to create as their heart’s desire, and at a price point of $599 ($349 for limited quantity presale), many people can now, finally, afford to have their very own machine in their home. It is also important to note that this is not a Kickstarter project, as the new Solidoodle lineup of 3D printers is available for purchase immediately.
The worst part of that awesome night out you have planned is the inevitable hangover you'll have in the morning (or afternoon, whenever you actually wake up). We know you want to match your friends shot for shot, but not everyone likes to deal with sunlight or noise of any kind the next day. Take a few of our precautions and avoid the hangover altogether, or try a few of these options to quickly cure your pounding headache.
Avoid the Hangover Before Drinking:
Here's the best medicinal cure for a hangover that you've never heard of. Never Hungover is a dietary supplement you drink before going out, and miraculously keeps you from being hungover the next day! The secret formula works by neutralizing and processing the dangerous toxins created by alcohol in the liver and kidneys by turning them into acetic acids, which are then flushed out of the body, drastically reducing the chance of a hangover.
Problem: You're cold while watching TV, but if you just drape yourself with a blanket, your arms won't be covered when you reach for the remote or bucket of popcorn!
Solution: The Snuggie, the blanket with sleeves! No longer worry about any body part (except your hands) being cold while you relax on your La-Z-Boy, and don't worry about struggling to hold things while your arms stay under the blanket! Also look stylish in the privacy of your own living room with a collection of different styles, like evening gown or tuxedo, male or female bathing suits, or an array of solid colors!
It's like a rite of passage to play at least one game of beer pong during your college days. The most avid partygoers know the struggle of having to set up the table outside in the yard, where stray ping pong balls end up covered in grass, dirt and other unknown substances from the ground.
No one wants to chug a beer that has bits of grass and dirt in it. The solution has been to have a "water cup," simply a cup full of water that you rinse the ball off in before taking your next shot into a cup of beer. But how well does this really work? If you keep dipping a ball into the same cup of increasingly dirty water, eventually the quality of your Natty will deteriorate even further.

This "stash" case has an extra pocket added on the back that makes a convenient wallet. The MarBlue case comes in either pink, red, purple or black. It securely stores up to three credit cards or IDs, and can probably fit some folded bills in there too. Plus, you can stick the back of a card into that side slot to use as a kickstand for either portrait or landscape orientation for your phone! However, we would recommend using something a little less valuable than a credit card for that feature.
