Ever cancelled a date because you had nothing decent to wear and couldn't afford a new dress, or are you are the guy who never asked your cute neighbor out because you didn’t have a way to pay for dinner? I’ve been there, I hear ya and I think there should be a new way to date, one that doesn’t involve spending money.
I’ve seen too many people break-up prematurely; “she’s a gold-digger,” “he’s cheap,” and “she has bad credit,” are some of the excuses they gave. They are now trying to find someone better without realizing they are just going in circles. What's better is to get to know someone without paying attention to their wallet.
After "springing forward" on Sunday, something became very apparent; no one complains when we gain an hour of sleep, but losing an hour of sleep makes us feel like we've been asked to cut off a limb. We all hate having to get up earlier and to make matters worse, drowsiness propels us to do stupid things, the dumbest of which is using daylight savings time as an excuse to get out of our responsibilities.
Women's magazines frequently publish advice on how to use household items as sexual aides, but unless you want to end up in the hospital with something broken or stuck, or worse yet — unconscious, you should learn about the dangers of using non-conventional sex toys.
As a general rule, unless it came from an adult novelty store, don't use it on or around your private parts. Ever heard of splinters?
When we're not poking fun at the stupid things people do, we at Dumb as a Blog are crying. We have a soft side, and something that brought us (ok, just me really) to the verge of tears was news that Blockbuster was bankrupt and putting itself up for sale. Blockbuster has been an American staple since 1985. Growing up, I recall the excitement of strolling through the aisles in search of the perfect title and the joys buying of popcorn and candy at checkout. RIP…REAL movie nights.
Fashion Week is wrapping up here in New York City, where the menswear look has been full of modern, high-tech fabrics and designs sculpted out of neoprene or out of melton tweed. But we at Dumb as a Blog are more familiar with with Neosporin and melted cheese.
We like things simple and stupid, including our clothes. And so, we've decided to say "later!" to all the haute couture mumbo jumbo and "hello!" to an old, tried and true trend: the traditional tapered jean. Comfortable, FUPA-friendly, All-American. The kind of jeans that your mom wears.
These popular basic pants don't belong hidden in soccer parents' closets…we're breakin' them out and putting them in our gallery of 10 Famous Men Wearing Your Mom's Jeans.
All the dumb that's fit to blog! Follow us on Twitter.
Valentine's day is approaching and you're probably thinking of ways to spice up the night. Because we love you, we’ve compiled this list of unique alternatives to boring old aphrodisiacs. Try these sensual enhancers on your date only if you want to be seen as original and as "the man."
1. Old Aphrodisiac: Caviar Fish eggs have been linked to the myth of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. They also symbolize fertility and carry a hefty price tag.
New Aphrodisiac: Faux Caviar If you can’t afford the aforementioned delicacy, treat your date to eggplant caviar instead. This poor man’s version is popular in Russia, France and Italy and can be made with ingredients from your local grocery store. Think of it as role play.
2. Old Aphrodisiac: Asparagus This phallic vegetable was "served to 19th century bridegrooms due to its reputed aphrodisiac powers."
In preparation for the Euro 2012 football games in Kiev, Ukraine, a proposed city beautification initiative stipulates local government should mandate the removal of all unsightly laundry and other personal items from apartment balconies. Underwear hung to dry and fully-nude or half-nude people would also be prohibited on terraces. Members of the feminine organization, FEMEN were not having this, so they took to the streets.
The group found a creative way to protest the plan and turn up the heat in temperatures that were five degrees below freezing — they took off their tops! These girls were determined to stick out (in the crowd) and stand up for the right to aerate their undergarments.
“Our balcony is our castle!" and "We want to walk on our balcony in our negliges!" is what they shouted during the demonstration as they joined the ranks of the yoga protester, who opposed sending troops to Afghanistan, and the gasoline protestor who spent too much on petrol and not enough on clothing.
So what do you think? Should protesters strip down to bring attention to a cause? Any cause? Share your thoughts in the comments.
Beautiful men can do no wrong. The only dealbreakers are if they hate babies, kill kittens or do gross things like wipe their boogers under tables, their shirts, or other people. This is why I threw in the towel on NY Jets player Mark Sanchez.
We didn't actually date, but when challenged by a friend to a duel for his (imaginary) love, I barely put up a fight. During Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers, Sanchez was seen on national television digging in his nostril and smearing the contents on his teammate's jacket. Ewww!
Why did he do it? Was it because Mark Brunell, shares the same first name as the nose picker or perhaps becuase his jacket was the same color as the booger?
They're called fetish shoes or ballet heels and celebs like Lady Gaga and Beyonce have made them red carpet chic. Convince your girlfriend to sport these in the bedroom however, and her only fixation will be with the floor. Unless she's a circus tightrope walker or a woman with incredible balancing capabilities she's bound to tumble over. TIMBER!
Regular women have no business wearing these shoes.
The Swiss are serious about their taxes and their hatred for dogs. At least that's what it seems like since a new law designed to punish canine tax evaders by euthanizing their pooches was introduced. "It's meant to put pressure on people who don't cooperate," says local official Pierre-Alain Nemitz. Woof!
While fear tactics may be a good way to get people to pay the $50 annual fee, this kind of approach could have severe consequences if authorities everywhere followed suit.
What if failure to pay your property taxes in the U.S. mandated a weekly Friday night rendezvous with a geeky government worker who'd relieve you of your entire paycheck?
