Women Revealed Things Men Do Make More Attractive

I think it’s a pretty universal truth that almost all men truly have no idea about anything that goes on in a woman’s mind. It’s like we’re completely different species at times. Which is why it’s nice when they occasionally drop some bread crumbs to help us along the way in life so we’re not completely bewildered all of the time (just more like 96 percent of the time).

Unfortunately, for us men, it doesn’t happen on a daily basis so our muddled minds have a tendency to forget what they have taught us. And sometimes, even when they do teach us, it still doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to us.

Today is one of those days.

A popular post on Reddit recently asked women, “What is something you think most guys would be ashamed of, but you find to be a turn on or attractive quality?”

Good question, right? Wait until you read some of the answers. (Might want to take some notes – that whole remembering thing, remember?)

Nerding out about something There’s nothing more attractive than being passionate about a hobby or ideal. An opportunity to learn somethimg new is hot. (Obviously a common thread needs to be shared.)” [samloveszombies]

“I find guys with bags under their eyes weirdly super attractive.” [PrettyLittleBird] “This is IT for me. I love guys that look like a Tim Burton character.” [perpetualsadgirl]

“Not making a lot of money but showing an incredible work ethic. My husband made $9/hr when I met him but he does everything with such dilligence and precision that I knew he and I were a match. I luckily got a degree that earns well so I am the primary breadwinner and he is now a stay at home dad. His attention to details keeps our house running and I am able to see his strengths outside of his earning potential. That’s the great thing about our more progressive society, we can ignore tradition and do what makes us happy.” [iaspiretobeclever]

Body hair. I love it, I love the way it feels on my body when I’m naked, love running my fingers through it. It’s so sexy to look at, too. I don’t know why but part of my brain starts to go crazy.” [mydadisindianajones]

Messy hair — like, bedhead throughout the day. I like styled hair as long as it’s kinda like, still a bit messy or is a side part kinda? Like a grown out undercut. Or just overgrown haircuts that meet the ears. Hair is so important to me for some reason.

“I don’t like muscles, really, and I prefer really skinny men, usually, or guys that are average weight, but I just don’t like muscles. Never understood women who drool over magazine covers of the latest ‘hot’ Hollywood actor showing his abs, or whatever.

I love crooked teeth, I think they’re adorable.” [hubuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuh]

“I don’t know if this is something men are actively ashamed of, but I find it really attractive when they have very put-together domestic lives. Doing their own laundry and ironing their clothes, planning meals and grocery shopping, and keeping their homes reasonably tidy are all ridiculously sexy. Also, having feminine interests and not feeling like less of a man!” [expiredlunchables]

“I like when a guys is going bald and completely shaves his whole head. Most guys seem touchy about it, but I kinda like it. Also grey hair. Me likey.” [Independent-worm]

Scars, they’ve made you the person you are.” [PhiFifi]

Guys who grew up in less than ideal situations. Poor, alcoholic parents, etc. People in general are sometimes ashamed of their backgrounds, but I admire the ones who get through it.” [friendlyghostgirl]

So there you have it, guys. Did that help? Like, at all? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Don’t worry. We’ll keep trying!

2018 Year Marks The 50th Anniversary Of The First Electronic Printer, So Why Do They Still Suck?!

Standard
why do printers still suck

Getty Image

According to Wikipedia, the first electronic printer was the EP-101, invented and released by Epson in 1968. That means that for fifty-freaking years people have been wondering when someone, anyone, will invent a printer that DOES NOT SUCK.

Since 1968, humans have invented the following…

• Global Positioning Systems (GPS)
• Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
• DNA fingerprinting
• Genetic engineering
• In-vitro fertilization
• Hybrid-electric cars
Virtual reality
• The Space Shuttle
The Hubble Space Telescope
• WiFi

And yet, as I sit here today, I still own a printer that sucks up ink like a man stranded in the desert for 10 days would drink a bottle of water. And don’t even get me started on paper jams, error messages, issues with WiFi, and the fact that a single cartidge of printer ink costs almost as much as the printer itself!

According to Consumer Reports, 75% of home printers are thrown away within a few years of purchase. You know why? Because home printers still suck!

To help alleviate some of this unending printer-related stress, Tercius Bufete, an associate editor at Consumer Reports, shares some ideas that might just help in the video below. Maybe.

How to Beat a Drug Test

Standard

You or I would never do drugs, or attempt to cheat on something as important as a drug test. But perhaps you have a “friend” who is curious about how the tests work. Here’s what your “friend” needs to know.

Depending on timing, you may not need to cheat

Urine drug tests are the most common type of testing, and in many cases they won’t reveal drugs you did last week, much less anything that happened months or years ago.

Advertisement

Quest Diagnostics, which sells testing services to employers, has a chart here of what each of their tests can detect. Here’s what they can find in urine:

  • Amphetamines: 24 to 72 hours
  • Cocaine: 24 to 72 hours
  • Opiates: 24 to 72 hours
  • PCP: 1 to 5 days if you use occasionally; 30 days for heavy, frequent use
  • Cannabis: 1 to 3 days occasional use; 30 days heavy, frequent use

Hair tests are the opposite: they can’t pick up recent use (within the past two weeks or so) but they can reveal drug use within the last three months. Hair grows about half an inch per month, and a test will usually use a sample of your most recent (closest to the scalp) 1.5 inches of hair.

Advertisement

The lab can’t test hair you don’t have, but if you suddenly show up to work bald the day of a drug test, you’ll look suspicious. (They may also be able to collect what they need from body hair, which is sure to be a fun experience.) But if you’re starting a job search now, why not try a cute, professional pixie cut to leave some ancient history on the salon floor?

Improve your odds

We’ll get to the outright cheating in a minute, but first, consider if these totally legal strategies might be all you need:

  • Find out the date (or approximate date) of the test, and adjust your drug use accordingly. Three days’ notice is enough to clear most drugs out of your system (see the chart above). Probation tests tend to be on a set schedule, and workplace tests tend to occur in a predictable pattern, so even “random” testing won’t necessarily take you by surprise. Watch the calendar.
  • Drink plenty of water. The more dilute your urine is, the less detectable any drugs will be. Don’t go overboard, though; the lab will reject samples that are too watery. (They do this through chemical testing, so no, turning your pee neon yellow with vitamin pills is not going to help.)
  • Pee (not into a cup) first thing in the morning. That first morning pee tends to be the most concentrated, so get it out of the way before heading to the lab.

Try these sneaky strategies—with caution

There are a ton of products, strategies, and home remedies that might work, but all of them are risky in one way or another. You could get caught. You also don’t know what exactly you might be putting in your body if you’re buying a sketchy “detox”—and isn’t taking questionable drugs the way you got into this mess?

Still, here are some of the things that could work:

Someone else’s urine

Typically, for employer tests, nobody watches you pee; they just give you a minute to do your thing. However, you probably won’t be able to bring anything like a bag into the bathroom with you. You also have to ensure that the urine is warm enough (sometimes they take the specimen’s temperature). Could you tuck a baggie of urine into your bra or underwear undetected?

Synthetic urine

This is a powder that, when mixed with warm water, will look like urine and turn up correct results on all the basic “is this urine” tests (they check pH, creatinine, and specific gravity, for example). The caution here is that there might not be warm water onsite to mix it with. Labs have been known to turn off water faucets (clean hands be damned), and even dye the toilet water blue.

Adulterants

These are chemicals you add to your sample to try to destroy traces of drugs. Many are effective. Hooray! But the testing labs know about them, so they just test for them. Quest says: “The most common adulterants screened include oxidizing agents – such as, nitrites, chromates and halogens (e.g., bleach and iodine).” The American Association for Clinical Chemistry describes some popular adulterants and their associated tests here. One interesting fact: one of the more effective chemicals, sold under the otherwise genius brand name Urine Luck, can actually cause a false-positive result for amphetamines on some tests.

Detoxes

The idea of “detoxing” your body for health is basically bullshit, but there are a few supplements you can take that can alter the results of a drug test. Some are just diuretics, so they make you pee more and can help water down your urine. Others, like zinc, can actually bind to certain drugs so they end up in your poop rather than your pee. The brave folks at Vice tested three brands of detoxes that seemed to work as advertised. But, again, the testing companies may be looking for telltale signs that you’ve used these, so proceed with caution.

Get Expert Advice

There’s kind of an arms race going on between the people who make and advertise stuff to help you cheat, and the people who develop the lab tests. Each wants to outsmart the other, and you’re caught in the middle.

Advertisement

For example, tests exist for almost every popular adulterant, but the more diligent the testing lab, the more expensive the test. So if your employer (or whover ordered the testing) is cheap, some of the cheats might get through. The trick is knowing which one.

On the flip side, some adulterants and detox formulas may be considered difficult or impossible to detect, but how do you know the lab didn’t figure them out recently? For example, the AACC implies that Visine eye drops can alter results and aren’t detectable, but that article is from 2015 and I’m not sure I’d trust it to be up-to-date.

Fortunately, two experts who spoke to Vice have a way to get some inside information on what’s likely to work. Go to a local head shop and ask, in oblique terms, for their best “detoxifier.” The people who work there will have a sense of what tends to work with your area’s most popular testing labs. Their information isn’t guaranteed correct, but it might be the best you can get.

NIU’s Latest E-scooters are a Bright Future for Two-wheel-transportation

Standard

NIU’s literally been making waves. With its scooters having clocked in over a billion kilometers worldwide, NIU is officially the largest e-scooter company in the world. Sporting a lovable design (courtesy NIU’s Design VP and personal design hero Carl Liu) that feels like the Vespa got modern touch and some incredible under-the-hood upgrades, NIU hopes to reimagine electric two-wheeling.

Launching not one, but two models simultaneously, NIU’s NGT promises to be the company’s most powerful model yet, and the M+ powerful mobility with a rider as well as a pillion passenger.

Armed with a 3kW Bosch motor, and not one, but two 60V 35Ah (that’s 35,000mAh) batteries courtesy Panasonic, the NGT is sleek, and comes with a bold racing stripe that’s slightly offset, giving it a speedy vibe. The incredibly powerful Bosch motor lets the NGT hit speeds of 70km/h, while the dual battery setup gives it a range of over 100km, which means realistically, you’d need to charge your batteries twice in the entire week. The removable batteries can be easily plugged into a power outlet and juiced to 100% in just over 3 hours, or before lunch, as the narrator in the video says!

The M+ focuses on a rider+passenger experience, delivering a stellar 100km range even with two passengers. The M+ comes with a 1.2kW Bosch motor that gives the bike a top speed of 45k/h, while the battery on the inside is a lightweight 48V, 42Ah Panasonic Li-Ion battery that weighs a mere 11 kilos and can easily be detached and carried around anywhere. The M+ also features a cruise-control feature that lets you take your hand off the throttle as the scooter continues gliding at the same speed.

Both the NGT and M+ come packed with features that make the electric scooter a smart one. With a dashboard that’s completely reinvented for modern-day travel, and an app that syncs with the scooter to provide notifications like scooter health, battery status, and even a GPS function (to locate your vehicle) along with an anti-theft feature, the NIU NGT and M+ revolutionize electric two-wheel travel. And it helps that they come with an aesthetic and design that’s multiple-award-winning!

Today, NIU is introducing the all-new NGT and M+; two smart electric scooters that bring you the perfect balance of speed and range. Since all of their scooters are connected, you can check things like location, estimated riding range, and even anti-theft alerts straight from your phone.

niu_electric_scooter_13

NIU have been designing and building smart electric scooters since 2015. In just three short years, their scooters have clocked more than 1 billion kilometers across the globe.

niu_electric_scooter_01

The NGT is their most powerful scooter. The NGT has a 3kW Bosch motor that cranks out a top speed of 70km/h, and a range of well over 100 km thanks to its two removable Panasonic batteries. You can easily drive all week on just a single charge of your batteries.

niu_electric_scooter_02

The NPro is the addition you were all asking for. It is an NGT that is capped at 45 km/h. No other differences, exactly the same specs. So in countries like Germany, you only need a car license to drive it, NOT a motorbike license. You asked, they listened.

niu_electric_scooter_19

The M+ is the newest model in their M-Series: winner of 5+ International Design Awards. It’s sexy, practical and built for 2 riders. The M+ effortlessly zips around urban streets, boulevards and alleys at 45 km/h with a real city riding range of well over 100 km.

niu_electric_scooter_09

The NGT and M+ are both equipped with industry-leader BOSCH brushless hub mounted 3kW and 1.2kW motors respectively. The BOSCH 3kW motor easily accelerates up to 70 km/h.

niu_electric_scooter_05

The NGT and M+ are electrified by their Panasonic Lithium-ion removable battery packs. A single charge takes just 3.5 hours and provides a range of well over 100 km of riding. At under 14/11 kg respectively, you can easily carry the battery into your home and charge it in any standard wall outlet, just like your computer.

niu_electric_scooter_06

The NGT and M+ have an on-board computer that constantly communicates with the cloud so you can view real-time data on your smart phone like GPS, recent rides, and even anti-theft alerts. They also provide regular Over The Air Updates (OTA) that gets you the most updated software for your scooter.

niu_electric_scooter_07

The NGT comes standard with CBS for safe-braking at high speeds. Both the NGT and M+ come equipped with regenerative EBS braking, which effectively adds around 5% more range on a single charge.

niu_electric_scooter_10

niu_electric_scooter_16

NIU technology is making congestion and traffic problems of the past. Start your day with a fun commute that saves money, time and even helps the environment.

niu_electric_scooter_15

Urban parking is always stressful. As cities cut down on parking spaces, the practicality of owning a scooter makes finding a spot unnecessary. With NIU, you can park closer to your destination for little to no cost at all.

niu_electric_scooter_18

Weighing in at less than 14 kg and 11 kg respectively, their NGT and M+ batteries are easy to carry to and from your scooter. You can charge at home, or charge at the office and your boss will be paying for your “electric gas”.
