The Art of Emoji Flirting, A User's Manual and Pro Tips

Thanks to the rapid rise of the ever so popular emoji, we no longer have to verbalize our emotions when communicating. That's right, our phones now come equipped with facial expressions to use in place of actual words, because expressing yourself is just so hard. When trying to convey flirtatious messages to the opposite sex, these come in handy. Follow our simple guide to proper emoji usage for flirtatious text messaging.


Heart eyes. Let’s start with the obvious. This emoji transcends all virtual interaction. From Instagram, to Twitter, to the messages in your inbox, this is a universal “I’m attracted” emoji. In case you were somehow clueless, if you are presented with this emoji, somebody is interested. For those who like to send these, calm down. No need to throw the heart eyes out to everybody, or constantly use them. We get it, you like what you see. While emojis are fun, let’s practice using our words sometimes too, ok?

Hangover Cures Done Right

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:

Never Hungover

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.

Virtual Reality Helmets Make Everything Better

Let’s be honest. Not everybody can afford the lavish luxuries of flying first class. For us average folks who are confined to the prisons of economy-class seating, there is finally a solution to the drab, close-fitting, seats we are forced to sit in for hours.

Airbus has blessed the world with helmets that allow us to virtually erase our surroundings while airborne. The helmet has the ability to provide music, movies, or handle business with the virtual keyboard that appears on the tray in front of you.

The idea is still in the preliminary stages, but it is well on its way to being provided during air travel. Airplanes are a scary way to travel and people have been begging for a way to make them easier and less stressful. From the cramped seats to the uncomfortably quick ascent into the air, planes are the fastest way to reach a destination but amongst the most inconvenient.

It's That Time of Year When All Anyone Wants to Talk About is Apple

Well folks it’s about that time. For you Apple fanatics, we know you’ve been itching for the latest release and it has finally come! Apple has recently announced features and release dates for their newest products: the iPhone 6 and6 plus..

Apple is offering two renditions of the 6th installment in the iPhone legacy, the 6 and the 6 plus. The most elementary difference is the size. The iPhone 6 plus is not only bigger than the previous iPhone, but it also makes the Samsung Galaxy look like rather tiny in comparison.

They have adjusted simple issues, such as moving the sleep switch to the right side to make it more easily accessible or allowing the home screen to rotate as well. Although they are making the phone bigger, the features associated with it still allow it to work as well as a small phone. For example, apps at the top of the rather large screen become accessible with a simple touch of the home button. They instantly slide down to be reached by your thumb.

#TBT: Top 5 Gadgets of the 90's

Pagers

Before the cell phone, if you wanted to reach somebody while they were mobile, you were forced to call the number to their pager and wait for what seemed like forever for them to call you back. If you wanted them to put a little pep in their step, you could always type a “911” at the end of the number to promote urgency. That, or train an owl to deliver your messages. Sounds archaic, right? Well this is how things were once upon a time.

The electronic gaming system before Nintendo dominating the toy stores. The handheld digital pet that could somehow keep kids entertained for hours. With only 3 small buttons, the choices were not as extensive as one would think. However, children remained amused as they struggled to keep their electronic animals alive.

New Nail Polish Can Help Detect Date Rape Drugs

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.

Do not, we repeat, DO NOT talk to strangers.

We know you are looking at us with disapointment because this rule is so obvious--why even list it? You will not understand the severity of this statement until somebody stops you to shake your hand, looking you in the eyes with the utmost sincerity exclaiming “Oh my, I love your shoes!” conning you into sharing an intimate anecdote about how you found them for half off at the thrift store. Next thing you know, they have subtly shifted subjects into a lengthy monologue about how NY needs more trees and asking how would you like to set up your donation plan. Huh?? You may be tricked into a good cause, or find yourself in a worse situation.
