I went through the deep web and found the top 5 shows on netflix from every year since it became an official streaming site in 2007 and put together a list of the 10 that show up the most in the top 5’s so here it goes.
Number 10: Lilyhammer
Lilyhammer is taking last place on this all time list because it had only appeared in the list of top 5’s twice, once in 2012 where it was placed at number 5 and again in 2015 where it had been placed in the number 5 slot yet again… 5 plus 5 equals 10 sorry Lilyhammer.
Number 9: Marvel’s Daredevil
Daredevil has a very special place in my heart but just not on my list, when the show came out in 2015 it started off mid top 5 at number 3 but slowly died out by showing up in the number 5 slot the next year and was never to be seen again in the top 5’s after that.
Number 8: Supernatural
Supernatural is very well known TV show for it’s dreamy cast and it’s storyline that will just hook you, the show first showed up in the top 5’s in 2007 at number 5 when netflix had just begun streaming but it grew in fame taking the number 3 slot the next year. 10/10 would recommend.
Number 7: 13 Reasons why
Don’t get me wrong 13 reasons why is an amazing show and has an amazing message not to mention super popular with the teenage crowd it made the top 5’s in 2017 at number 2 and for it being the first season coming out that year the number 2 spot is a win but in 2019 when the third season had dropped so had it’s spot on the top 5’s coming in at number 4.
Number 6: The Umbrella Academy
The Umbrella academy is one of my personal favorites having watched both seasons I can say it really should have been higher in the top 5’s coming in at number 2 in 2018 and then number 4 in 2020 this action packed show has so many twists and turns it will keep your attention until you realize you’ve watched the whole season in 1 whole day.
Number 5: Lucifer
Lucifer has a very big fan base mainly teenage girls but still there are so many of them in 2019 Lucifer hit the top 5’s at number 2 then only dropped to number 3 the following year not a bad run but you know someone probably sold their soul to get that high up on the list.
Number 4: Heart Land
Some may be mad that this is higher on the list than others but let me just explain two years in a row (2007, 2008) this show was number 1 in the top 5’s crazy to think about how hard it has to be to get number 1 and stay number 1 for two years, I don’t personally know much about this show but it was good in 07 and 08.
Number 3: Arrested Development
Arrested development showed up on the top 5’s three times 2007 and 2008 at in the number 2 slot then again in 2015 at number 4 when the show was brought back with an all new cast.
Number 2: Orange is the new Black
This show was crazy popular showing up on the top 5’s 4 times in 2015 and 2016 at number 1 then 2017 at number 4 then finally in 2019 at number 3 the effort people have to put in to watch a show so much that it is in the top 5 for almost 4 years in a row and also number 1 twice, crazy.
Number 1: Stranger Things
Stranger Things takes number 1 on the all time list because it showed up in the top 5’s four years in a row taking the number 2 spot in 2016, number 3 in 2017, and number 1 in the year 2018 and 2019. It takes a really good show to never drop below 3 four years in a row.
Well there you have it the top 10 netflix shows of all time here is the top 5’s chart if you were curious what didn’t make the cut.
Monopoly can be a frustrating game, but we spoke with two gaming experts about how to ensure a win.
Develop as much as you can, as quickly as you can.
Snatch up red and orange properties, but don’t bother with utilities.
If you’re going to tackle the iconic but lengthy and often frustrating game of Monopoly, you might as well ensure a win every time.
1. Develop property as aggressively as you can
Early on in the game, players tend to be choosy with which properties they buy, but Monopoly and honestly that’s the worst strategy.
Always develop as aggressively as you can. Once in a while you go bankrupt and you’re out, but more likely you end the game quickly by bankrupting other players.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is turning their noses up at smaller properties. Buying everything in sight will help you have leverage options later on.
2. Buy orange and red properties, as they are the most landed-on
Statistically speaking, the orange and red properties are the most landed-on colors during the game. Focus on buying those to rack up the rents fees.
More specifically, the most landed-on red and orange properties in Monopoly are Illinois Avenue (red), Tennessee Avenue (orange), and New York Avenue (orange).These are also valuable Monopolies for you to bankrupt your competitors with.
Whoever owns the most red and orange properties in the game may give you a good idea of who will win in the long run.
3. Don’t save your money
While money in the bank sounds great, unlike real life you should aim to have minimal amounts of money in the bank at all times. Money in the bank isn’t being invested, and isn’t earning you anything. Your Monopoly banker isn’t going to pay interest! It’s almost always better to be purchasing items with your hard-earned cash, for the chance to deliver return on those investments.
4. Don’t bother with utilities
This may come as a surprise, but many professional Monopoly competitors don’t even bother with buying utilities.
You only have a 3% chance of making money from either the railroads or the utilities throughout the game. Plus, unlike other color properties, utilities can’t be upgraded.
5. Develop three houses or hotels as quickly as possible
Remember the rule of threes: Always develop three houses on your monopolies as quickly as possible, and then aim to build three hotels on your properties. This will allow you to squeeze as much rent out of your properties as possible. It is a smart to only start developing more than three houses (by moving on to hotels) when all of his streets have three houses each.
Once you move on to building hotels, the same rule applies.
Once you have your houses developed, aim to build up to three hotels as quickly as possible, as that’s when the rent really jumps up to a significant amount.
6. Later in the game, don’t try to get out of jail right away
Jail is not necessarily a terrible option.
It might seem counter-intuitive, but if you land in jail later in the game, when hotels fill the board, you can save money by staying there for your entire three turns (unless you roll a double), until you get out of jail.
That way, if you’re running low on cash, you won’t have to dole out your remaining savings to your competitors by landing on their monopolies.
7. Create a housing shortage by using up all the houses
A little-known classic rule of the original game is the housing shortage. Once 32 houses have been placed on the board, you are not allowed to buy more. So by simply buying all of the houses as quickly as possible, you can easily run your opponents into the ground.
If no one else has a monopoly, and you have one or two, a more long-term strategy is to try to shorten the housing market. If you have 32 houses on the board, that means there’ll be no more houses for anyone to build with, and you’ll be well on your path to outlasting the competition.
A bucket list is a checklist of items that people would like to complete before they die. It gets its name from the colloquial term “kick the bucket”, which is a euphemism for death.
Some people stack their bucket lists with lofty goals and ambitions. You might want to publish a novel or cure cancer. But a bucket list shouldn’t be a tedious slog. A bucket list should be full of dumb ideas that you won’t care if people know you did because in theory by time you finish your list you’ll be dead. Your bucket list should be full of things like:
◦ Attend a nudist event
◦ Be a flashmobber
◦ Be interviewed by Jay Leno
◦ Be nude at a nude beach
◦ Belong to a secret society
◦ Box a kangaroo
◦ Complete the IMDB top 250 movies
◦ Drink a $200 bottle of wine
◦ Find Nemo
Nothing on your list should ever be something you have to work for your bucket list should just be stupid random shit you would have fun doing.
Bricks and mortar are pretty strong. It would take pressures 67 times that of our own atmosphere for a brick to start to crumble. Not only that but to break through a brick wall would require the kinetic energy equivalent of a bullet fired from an M16 rifle.
Now that we know this the obvious question arises…Could Kool-Aid Man Really Break Through a Wall? So let’s say we have a pitcher, but not just any pitcher, this is a sentient humanoid pitcher that comes in at 6ft tall. When scaled to that size the glass would be 3.6in. Kool-Aid man or K.A.M. for short would also be incredibly heavy. His dry weight would clock in at 5,800lbs, but we need to fill him with 607.6 gallons, that’d be 1150 cans of soda, which would increase his total weight to 11,000 lbs. He would weigh roughly the same as an elephant.
We tend to think of glass as fragile, pretty thin, and that’s because the kind we interact with, generally, is. However, glass is surprisingly strong. It can withstand pressures up to 469 times that of our own atmosphere – 7 times more than brick – and takes twice as much energy to break. Since KAM’s glass is 3.6in thick, that would be enough to not shatter when hitting a brick wall. In fact, his enormous mass means he’d only need to be going at an average running pace to have enough energy to bust through said wall. But let’s talk about his weight for a second – as we know from the square cube law, you just can’t scale something up and expect for it’s legs to be able to support the now incredibly large body. Lucky for us, since KAM’s legs are made of glass, which can withstand such immense pressure, his legs could be the diameter of a quarter and his feet the area of 3 postage stamps and he wouldn’t collapse under his own weight. So can KAM break through walls?…Oh Yeah!
Sexting: Sexting is sending, receiving, or forwarding sexually explicit messages, photographs, or images, primarily between mobile phones, of oneself to others. It may also include the use of a computer or any digital device.
Sexting can be a wonderful way to get to know someone and learn about their turn ons at a safe distance and a slower pace.
Due to the advent of dating and hook-up apps, it’s also likely sexting can be one of the first ways you start flirting with a new person. Sexting can also be used to spice up an existing relationship, or keep the juices flowing between dates or during long-distance relationships. According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association, sexting behavior is common among American adults, with 82.20% reporting sexting within the last year.
Should you start slow? Launch into the raunch? How do you determine what’s the best way to approach a new sexting buddy? And where can you find sexting examples to help inspire some of your own? You might be afraid that to be good at sexting you’ll need a rich imagination and huge sexual lexicon. Rest assured, it’s actually much easier than this.
The first thing to do when starting to sext with someone is making sure you’re both into it. The best way to find out is to ask. Here are some sexting examples to get the party started:
“I’ve been thinking about you a lot. Can I share one of the naughty fantasies I had?”
“I took a naked selfie and I think I look cute. Wanna see it?”
“I miss you. Can you send me something naughty?”
If your sexting partner is eager, go for it! Once you get the go-ahead, here are some sexting examples and frameworks to get you going.
Let’s break down sexting into a couple different styles:
These four main categories of sexting are designed to help you come up with good sexting examples on your own.
Flirty Sexting Examples
Flirtation is perfect for getting to know someone new, though it can be a great way to introduce sexting into an existing relationship, too. The tone can be coy and playful. Rather than describing specific scenes or fantasies, it can be fun to play with innuendo. It’s also a good idea to start with complements and questions. Here are some Flirtation-style sexting examples:
“I like your profile pic. It makes you look like you have a secret.”
“I had a dream about you the other night. Would you like to hear about it?”
“Thinking about you makes me feel all warm and tingly. I would love to see you again soon.”
You may notice that this style isn’t necessarily about sex. Rather, it’s a way to dip your toes into sexting, and gauge where the other person is at. Here are some more flirtation-style sexting examples:
“I’m in bed. Want to give me something to think about as I fall asleep?”
“Thanks for the voicemail. My god, your voice just drives me wild.”
“I’m really excited for our date next week. I’m having fun deciding what kind of underwear to wear.”
“You really know how to talk to me. I can’t wait to see how you touch me, too. ;)”
Flirtation style sexting can certainly escalate to more explicit styles. It can also stay light and sweet, too. The key is for both of you to be on the same page about what feels comfortable and exciting.
Fantasy Sexting Examples
Fantasy-style sexting is all about telling a story or collaborating on a shared scene. Fantasies are a perfect way to assess someone’s tastes and desires, while also learning about what they don’t like. Here’s a great formula for sexting fantasies:
1. Gauge Interest
2. Share a sexy thought. It could be a setting, an action, or a scenario.
3. Ask them what that makes them think of.
4. Repeat 2 and 3
Mild Fantasy Sexting Example
Here are some sexting examples in the Fantasy style, using the above framework:
A: Can I tell you what I want to do with you next time we get together?
A: I bought new massage oil. I want to lay you down in front of the fireplace and give you a full body massage. How does that sound to you?
A: What else would you like me to do to you?
Wild Fantasy Sexting Example
Or here’s another sexting example that’s more explicit:
A: “I can’t wait to taste you again.”
B: “Oh yeah?”
A: “I want to bend you over and eat you out from behind.”
B: “I want your sweetness to drip down my chest as you buck and moan. What about you? What do you want me to do to you?”
You can also play with creating complete scenarios. Here’s a sexting example that sets up a whole scene:
A: I’m imagining taking you to a glamorous sex party.
B: Tell me about it.
A: You’ll wear that outfit you wore on our first date. You look so sexy in that. We’ll arrive at the party in an opulent mansion in the hills. When we walk in, everyone will turn to admire how hot we look together. We’ll wander the rooms looking for a delicious third person to add to our scene. They’ll ask us what we want to do. What will you say?
And so on. Fantasy style can be the hardest for some people to master, because it can feel vulnerable to expose that much of one’s sexual psyche to another person. It can be a good idea to ask for positive reinforcement, by asking questions like, “Do you like this?” or “Is there something you’d like better?”
Memory Sexting Examples
Memory style sexting is great for established relationships where you already have a sexual history to pull inspiration from. It can be as simple as recounting a hot shared experience. Here are some sexting examples pulling from your shared sexual history.
A: Remember that trip to Maui?
B: I loved that trip.
A: You looked so hot as you held me on the balcony while the sun set. I wanted you so badly I felt like I could burst.
A: Thanks for the great sex last night.
B: What was your favorite part?
A: Probably when you pulled my hair just before you came.
Task/Request Sexting Examples
Finally, there’s Task/Request sexting. This is particularly good for people who enjoy playing with power-dynamics in their sex lives or are service-oriented in general. The tone you used is based on the way your partner likes hearing or sharing commands.
A: Do you want to do something right now to make me happy?
A: I want you to jerk off right now and then I want you to tell me what you think of when you come.
A: Go to the office bathroom and send me a picture of your ass.
A: Did you get the package I sent you?
B: I did.
A: I want you to put them on and send me a selfie.
Sexting is an opportunity to be playful and flirtatious while communicating likes/dislikes, desires, and expectations. Have fun with it, play with your favorite sexting examples, and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.
If you are like me and you don’t have money like ever here a few date night ideas that won’t break the bank, a fancy night out doesn’t have to be your only choice.
Honestly nothing beats sitting on the couch eating dollar menu items from mcdonalds while watching a movie on your friends moms netflix account with your man.
2. You could always get five dollar foot longs and have a subway picnic in the park, you didn’t go bankrupt on the foot and the park is always free.
3. Build a fort, don’t tell me it’s childish to build a fort you could be fifty and I wouldn’t judge you for building a fort. stay creative!
4. Take a nap together, honestly you can judge me for saying that a nap together is a date but I can not think of anything better than when he turns to me and says “wanna take a nap” ah man my heart melts.
5. Watch him play his video games… I know ladies the one thing as a woman you’re supposed to be bothered by welp I love sitting on the couch watching my man play through the Fallout games he enjoys it and honestly I really enjoy it, i’ve personally tried to play Fallout 3 and well I’m not that good so I watch him and it feels like we’ve played it together.
I know this isn’t the list for everyone but you might want to give it a try you never know what you may or my not like. These five things are my personal favorite things to do with my man that really don’t hurt the wallet at all, the most you’re going to spend is on food and if you do that right it shouldn’t cost much either.
Are you a fetus? A log? A starfish? No, I’m not talking about the animal you most closely identify with — I’m talking about how you sleep. Dr. Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service in the U.K., did a study about what your sleeping position says about your personality. Identifying six common sleep postures, Idzikowski surveyed a thousand Brits about their sleep positions and personalities. The survey showed some interesting connections between the way people sleep and characteristics of their personalities. For example, people who slept in fetal position (by far the most common position) had a tendency to show a tough exterior, while being sensitive on the inside; people who sleep on their backs with their hands at their sides, in contrast, tend to be on the reserved side.
Idzikowski admits that while the survey gives real insight into how people sleep, the correlation between personality and sleep position is “probably [a] statistical curiosity” (In comments for an article about the study, Idzikowski suggests that the survey was done more for the sake of novelty than hardcore peer reviewed science; the results of the UK survey were not repeated when he tried the same thing with a Southeast Asian survey group). But still! This is a cool idea, no? The premise of Idzikowski’s study is fascinating, I think, because it suggests that we might express our feelings and attitudes when we are literally unconscious, when we have no ability to shape how others perceive us.
While we don’t have definitive proof that sleep position indicates personality, it’s fun to speculate about what our sleeping positions, which for most of us are deeply ingrained and instinctive, can tell us about ourselves – and especially about how we are in bed…when we’re not sleeping. That’s right, I’m talking about sex. If sleeping position can tell us about personality, might it not also tell us about what we’re like as lovers?
Come with me on a completely unscientific journey as I breakdown what your sleeping position might say about you.
1. The Fetus
Fetal sleepers lie on their sides, with their arms and legs curled inward. According to Idzikowski for BBC News, these sleepers are “tough on the outside but sensitive at heart,” with a tendency to be shy but open up over time. When it comes to their sex lives, sleepers who favor this position may be on the shy side at first, and tentative about reaching out for what they want, both emotionally and sexually. As they get more comfortable over time, however, they’ll become more outgoing and confident. Once they’ve established a solid foundation of trust with their partners, they’re sensitive, generous lovers who aren’t afraid to go for their desires.
2. The Log
If you’re a log, you sleep on you side with your arms straight down beside you. Idzikowski theorizes that log sleepers are social people who like hanging out with popular people and are generally easy to get along with. They trust easily, sometimes too easily. As sexual partners, logs may be fun, outgoing, and willing to try new things. Their tendency to trust people can come back to bite them, however—they’ve had their hearts broken before by people they shouldn’t have trusted.
3. The Yearner
Yearners sleep on their sides with their arms extended in front of them. Idzikowski’s survey suggests that these sleepers have an “open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical.” They take a long time to make a decision, but once they have, they stick to it. In sexual situations, yearners can be standoffish at first and slow to trust—they tend to assume the worst about potential partners. But once someone has finally gained a yearner’s trust, he or she will be in it for the long haul as an open, dedicated partner.
4. The Soldier
Soldiers sleep on their backs with their arms by their sides. The survey suggests that soldiers are characteristically reserved. These quiet people hate drama and expect others to act according to the same high standard that they do. Sexually, soldiers may prefer to stick to a routine – they are not ones for wild sexcapades. That’s not to say they’re bad in bed: they do their best to please and expect the same consideration from their partners. One hint of drama, however, and they are out the door.
5. The Freefall
Freefallers sleep on their stomachs with their heads turned to the side and their arms up around their pillows. The survey showed these sleepers to be “gregarious and brash people, but […] nervy and thin-skinned underneath.” They’re not comfortable with being criticized or with being involved in extreme situations. By this logic, freefallers are fun and outgoing in bed — to a point. They act like they’re into more adventurous sexual behaviors, but they draw the line at hardcore kink. They act uber-confident during sex, but that confidence is fragile. Criticism will send them into a meltdown.
6. The Starfish
Starfish sleep on their backs with their arms up next to their heads. Idzikowski suggests that these sleepers are good listeners who love to help out but don’t like being center stage. As sexual partners, starfish are good, generous lovers who listen to their partners and try to fulfill their needs. They have a hard time, however, advocating for what they want in bed. A good partner to a starfish will need to make sure that he or she gets his or her needs met – even when he or she doesn’t easily speak up about them.
There are a lot of places that people would think are really romantic or “I saw this in a movie once” type of places but nothing beats the safety of a good old fashioned bed so anyway let’s get it on. 😉
1) The Beach
I’ve selected the beach for the number one spot because there are so many things that could go wrong and will go wrong while having sex on the beach not to mention, sand where sand shouldn’t be, the intense yeast infection that is inevitable, but also the lack of privacy.
2) The Car
sex on the car is simply just a lack of space, don’t even get me started on the leg cramps that can be disastrous!
3) Your Parents House
There are many reasons why having sex at your parents house is a bad idea but the top reasons are your freaking parents are there, you can’t be too loud, and honestly everyone in the situation is just uncomfortable.
4) The Shower
I know it’s all hot and steamy but there is water in your eyes and really not a lot of room to maneuver not to mention it’s slippery.
5) The Pool
I’m not even going to go into the fact that you should never have sex in a public pool but if you have your own pool you may have already found out that sex in a pool is nearly impossible water is not a lubricant!
There are many creative places to have sex in your own home, you don’t really have to go searching for a fun new place that may ultimately be very embarrassing.
