There is a girl who is very special in your life but you do not know if she likes you back. You sometimes feel like she is into you but you cannot tell if she is always interested. Women are known to be very mysterious. Even if you try to understand what they are thinking, it is very likely that you won’t. There may be a few signs she likes you that you will get to understand if only you would pay extra attention.

If a woman is attracted to you, one of the signs she likes you is if she would do her best to show you that she cares. She will make sure that you are always fine. If there are some things that you need, she will go out of her way to provide those needs for you. She will be appreciative too if you show her that you care for her too. When you both care for each other, this is a sign that the feeling may be mutual.

Here are some of the other signs that you have to look for:

  1. She finds humor in the things that you say.

You have to remember that she has to be laughing with you instead of laughing at you. When she cannot help but laugh whenever you make a joke, you know that you are both on the same wavelength when it comes to humor.

  1. She smiles at you truthfully.

It would be easy for women to smile but most of the time, the smiles would not reach their eyes. Take a look at how the girl that you like smiles at you. Does her smile reach her eyes? You can tell if it does if her eyes usually crinkle at the sides.

  1. She usually looks jealous when she assumes that you are flirting with other girls.

There are times when you openly flirt with another girl in front of her just to see her reaction and there are also times when you are just speaking to a random girl and she is just assuming. There are two ways that she can react. The first is that she will react openly and will ask you why you are flirting with other girls or she may silently fume and treat you coldly for a while. No matter what her reaction is between the two, you know that she is affected and this is a sign that she likes you.

  1. She starts to look into the things that you are interested in.

You have mentioned that you normally love reading comic books and then after some time, she will tell you that she has checked out the comic book that you have recommended and she liked it immensely. The fact that she made an effort to check out something you are interested in is a sure sign that she likes you.

  1. She starts to go out of her way to talk to you even when she is out with her friends.

Even if she is already in a group and she is having the time of her life, she would make time for you when she sees you. This is a sure sign that she is into you. You just have to figure out how much she likes you if this is the case.

  1. She normally tells stories about you to her other loved ones.

Do not be surprised if her mother or her father recognize you even if you have never met her parents. If she likes you, she cannot help but talk about you even about the simplest things. The more that she talks about you, the more likely that you are on her mind.

  1. Take a look at how she holds her bag or her purse whenever she is with you.

If a woman has the tendency to hold on to her things when she is talking to you, this means that she is uncomfortable whenever she is with you. If she normally holds her purse loosely or she just leaves her bag on the table while she is with you, this is a sign that she is at ease. Of course, this is not the only sign you have to look for to figure out the various signs she likes you.

  1. She makes an effort to touch you.

If there is one thing that you can look for just to check if a woman likes you, it is through her sense of touch. If she finds an excuse to touch your hair or to hold on to your arm, this is a sign that she is into you.

With all of these signs she likes you, you will figure out for sure if she thinks that you are a potential or not.

Marijuana. Infused. Beer.

It was only a matter of time before weed found its way into America’s favorite drink. Enter: marijuana-infused beer.

Published

These days, you can find marijuana infused in everything from alcohol to BBQ sauce to bath bombs to candy bars. So, it was only a matter of time before weed found its way into America’s favorite drink: beer. Enter: marijuana-infused beer.

From Business Insider, a report that Lagunitas Brewing Company has released an IPA infused with marijuana. It’s called Supercritical, and it’s available for a limited release in California. In case you don’t know, Lagunitas Brewing Company is based in California and was purchased by Heineken in early 2017.

Sadly, though, it won’t get you high — the beer contains no THC.

For inside scoop, watch the full video. Then let us know in the comments what you think about marijuana-infused beer.

Donald Trump as Seen by Google’s Deep Dream

Published

on

THIS CONTENT WAS REPUBLISHED FROM AN EARLIER DATE.

Last Summer, Google unleashed Deep Dream, their neural network that takes pictures and tries to identify patterns and overwrite them, on an unsuspecting public. When you put an image into Deep Dream, what you get when it “wakes up” is often nightmarish. Dogs, birds, insects, pagodas are inserted at random places in the image, giving it a surreal and sometimes beautiful–if terrifying–aspect.

So, since this election season is already off-the-charts surreal, I thought to myself, “What would it look like if we ran some candidates through Deep Dream?” Well, now I know.  I started with Donald Trump, who is already deeply weird and unsettling. The results are spectacular.

An incomplete guide for groceries you can’t find

Published

Arial photo of grocery store

Every once in a while, you find a hapless, bewildered person wandering through the grocery store. Perhaps that person is you.

You’ve been sent out to pick up something unusual for a new recipe or some kind of produce you’ve never laid eyes on, much less judged through the knocking/squeezing/smelling process.

Fear not. This incomplete and arbitrary guide based on random anecdotes is here to help.

Lettuce vs. Cabbage

When I was a kid my father had to feed us when my mother was visiting family. One day we ended up having a raw cabbage salad. I don’t recommend it.

This is a cabbage. It has very tight, somewhat waxy, light green, leaves. Cabbages are dense and feel somewhat heavy for their size.

Iceberg lettuce looks similar to cabbage except it should not feel waxy and the leaves are more delicate and thin without pronounced veins. It is much less dense and feels light for it’s size.

When in doubt, just buy romaine lettuce. It has more vitamins than iceberg lettuce anyway. This is what romaine lettuce looks like.

All fresh leafy greens can be found in the produce section, normally refrigerated and occasionally spritzed.

Cucumber vs. Zucchini

If you’re not in the U.S., zucchini is also called a courgette because why not make things more difficult?

(Pedantic aside: Actually, zucchini’s etymological base is from Italian and courgette’s is from French.)

Zucchini is delicious grilled, fried, or sautéed in ribbons. Cucumber is usually eaten fresh or pickled. Both can be found in the produce section, and both make you feel vaguely uncomfortable at checkout if you also need to buy hand lotion.

Zucchini is somewhat angular and has a woody stem on one end.

This is a zucchini.

Cucumber is rounder with small bumps and is generally stemless in the store.

This is a cucumber.

 

Shallots

They’re like onions but much smaller, ovoid, and with a brownish red papery skin. You normally can find them in the produce section in the bins by potatoes and onions.

These are shallots.

These are pearl onions, which are bright white and have a stronger flavor than shallots. They are not interchangeable.

Scallion

I don’t know why a stranger asked me about scallions instead of a store employee, but I saw desperation in his eyes. Dude just wanted whatever the hell scallions were so he could leave.

While scallion refers to a family of onions, it’s generally fine to consider scallions and green onions synonymous. They’re a little thicker than a pencil and have a white base and green stalks.

These are scallions.

They are usually in the produce section near leafy greens.

 

Parsnips

Parsnips look like big carrots that are so terrified the color drained from them. They’re probably next to the whole carrots sold in your grocery store. Since parsnips are more of a niche item sometimes they’re displayed by the fancy organic produce.

These are parsnips, or as one man called them after an exhaustive search, “motherfuckers.”

 

Cream of Tartar

Moving out of the produce section, cream of tartar is not a cream, not related to tartar sauce, and does not derive from the tribal Tartars. It is a byproduct of wine making that is purified and used to stabilize egg whites for things like meringue.

A friend of mine went through the whole soup aisle several times looking for cream of tartar. This is the wrong place to look.

You’ll usually find cream of tartar in the spice section of the baking aisle.

This is cream of tartar.

Tahini Sauce

If you’re learning to cook non-Western food, you’re going to be exposed to new condiments like tahini sauce, fish sauce, black bean paste, and more. Frankly, your best bet is to go to a local ethnic grocery store that matches what you’re setting out to make. (Tahini sauce is Middle Eastern for the record.)

However, more grocery stores are starting to have a catch-all not-American aisle that is called “International,” “Asian/Mexican/British,” “World Foods,” etc.

Start in this aisle for those condiments, and if you can’t find them there, try the official condiment aisle. If neither aisle has tahini sauce, you probably need to search a different store.

This is tahini sauce.
