The best way to spend your 21st Birthday

We all know that your 21st birthday is supposed to be the day you get completely wasted, so here is some advice on how to spend it.

Years ago the 21st birthday wasn’t anything major. It was just another year. Fast-forward to current times and the 21st birthday is one of the biggest and most celebrated birthdays in America.

The main reason for this is that when someone turns 21 years old they are able to legally buy alcohol. They may also be able to partake in other more “adult” activities.

You can go to the bar, but don’t spend all your time there because bars are expensive.

Grab all the alcohol you could want from the store go back to your house with all your friends and get trashed in a fun and safe environment.

The best part of birthdays is spending it with the people you love so grab all your friends set up the pong table and throw a party have a lot of fun dress up for the occasion and I know that the point of being able to legally drink isn’t to be black out drunk however I do believe it is a right of passage to end the night by hugging a toilet the night of your 21st birthday.

Having a plan is also a very good idea just have some things in mind that you know for sure you want to do but don’t be married to a plan if things change go with the flow and have a safe and wonderful 21st birthday.

Adele’s 30 Release

It’s time to emotionally prepare for the return of Adele.

After weeks of hinting to fans across the globe by way of cryptic projections of the number 30, Adele has confirmed that new music is just around the corner. The 15-time Grammy winner released her first single off her fourth studio album Thursday. With “Easy on Me,” fans have waited with bated breath to hear the star’s first song in more than six years.

Below, we answer all your questions about the superstar’s new musical era.


What is the album about?

During an Instagram Live session with her fans, Adele was asked about the subject matter of her upcoming project. She promptly replied, “Divorce babe, divorce.” You might remember that the singer finalized her divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, back in January.

When is 30 releasing?

With a moving message about how meaningful the project has become to her, the singer confirmed on social media that her fourth studio album will release on November 19.

Are there any collaborations on the album?

Maintaining consistency with her past projects, Adele’s new album features no collaborators, the singer has confirmed.

A television special and interview with Oprah Winfrey are also happening.

According to Variety, a televised special titled Adele One Night Only will air on CBS five days ahead of the release of her new album, 30.

It was set for Sunday, November 14, at 8:30 p.m. ET, the special was filmed in Los Angeles, with the singer performing new songs from her upcoming project, as well as some of her greatest hits.

Adele will also sit down with media icon Oprah Winfrey “from her rose garden,” where the singer will discuss “her new album, the stories behind the songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son.”

The “Easy on Me” music video officially premiered on YouTube.

The “Easy on Me” music video officially premiered on YouTube in tandem with the single’s drop at 7 p.m. ET on October 14—and it’s just as tear-jerking and moving as we imagined.

Featuring vintage-inspired cinematography, the video shows Adele singing about forgiveness over her innocent past mistakes as she reflects back on a failed relationship. The mood is somber and nostalgic, and all too cathartic.

Adele released the official tracklist.

According to Variety, the tracklist for 30 is as follows:

1. Strangers by Nature
2. Easy on Me
3. My Little Love
4. Cry Your Heart Out
5. Oh My God
6. Can I Get It
7. I Drink Wine
8. All Night Parking (With Erroll Garner) Interlude
9. Woman Like Me
10. Hold On
11. To Be Loved
12. Love Is a Game

Bonus Tracks:
13. Wild Wild West
14. Can’t Be Together
15. Easy on Me (With Chris Stapleton)

I for one can not wait to get my hands on this album.

Types of Chumps You Meet Hiking

As a somewhat experienced hiker myself. The general hiking crowd knows about these certain stereotypes and it rubs off on them in either positive or VERY negative ways. Most of these listed are going to follow the latter category, so enjoy.

1) The Yogi

Barefooters.org

Known as the most spiritual hikers out on the trail, these chumps usually have two reasons for being in the wilderness: they’re either looking for themselves or a new smoke spot. These free-going individuals usually spend extensive times in the woods even though they have a minimal home 30min-1hr away. To spot these chumps, look to see if they’re wearing shoes. If not, Yogi. Long dreads and tie-dye shirt? Yogi. Pungent stench? Either rock climber or Yogi. Climbers will be mentioned soon.

2.) Jesus Christ

123rf.com

These are one of the most common chumps you’ll bump into while hiking. It’s pretty straight forward and easy to recognize these guys. Running into more than 3 Jesus Christs while hiking is a pretty normal thing. Many that read these fit this category pretty well. You look like a Yogi, but we know you’re not. So stop being a FAKE.

3.) Enlisted/Vets

Local12.com

If you think you see Chris Kyle while hiking? Don’t worry. It’s just another identical looking military veteran. It’s pretty easy to spot these guys. Just look for the short hair, beard, and American flag patch on his S.O.G. Backpack. Sometimes they’re with kids, sometimes alone. If they’re still enlisted, check for their boots. They might still be the same ones issued to them on their last deployment.

4.) Commando!

The trek.com

We know that there’s a debate between practicality and health when it comes to not wearing your undies while hiking. What isn’t a debate however, is seeing a lot of asscheek and a lot of nipples poking through shirts while on populated trails. No hate on either end, but sometimes even an outdoorsman can witness too much.

5.) DJ KHALED!

Alamy.com

I don’t know how many times it has to be addressed. It IS rude to blast your music while hiking. Most hikers try to get away from the material world and you’re bringing them right back in by listening to modern era radio music. Most of the time, it’s either rap or pop that these chumps listen to and sometimes, you don’t even need to see them to know where they’re at. Take a breath once in a while, smell the fresh air, and enjoy the natural world.

6.) The Good Boy/Girl

Dailypaws.com

Being the most wholesome on the list, the Good Boy/Girl is always a pleasure to see while hiking. Many receive the biggest of treats and pets for staying on the trail or finding the biggest stick to give to their owner. Very few and very sad individuals dislike this category.

7.) The Ultra

Massultra.com

Being the most hardcore on the list, these chumps will smoke anybody on the trail to obtain their new PR. Training for months at a time for one race, these guys/gals will always be seen from afar wearing their running shorts, headphones, and fanny packs booking it up or down to the trailhead. Respect for doing it, but everything isn’t a competition. Some haven’t learned that yet.

8.) Insta Hoe

Fineartamerica.com

Located at the trailheads or 1/4 of the way through. These chumps are always paying attention to their social media following and sponsorships instead of the natural world. Being in either large groups or solo, it’s best to stay away from these chumps because they tend to be very extroverted and have little to no knowledge of the trail itself. Clout>beauty to them.

9.) Rock Climbers

Hiconsumption.com

You can find these sweaty chumps off trail and high up. These guys may also qualify as Yogis depending on how into it they are. Parking near the trailheads in their vans, they either reside solo as a Boulder bro or in groups as sport/trad nerds. They are either really quiet and awkward or way too extroverted (there’s no in between). They’re a cult and always talk about their pumps.

10.) The Geezer

Picfair.com

Being spotted as soon as the park opens, these chumps know everything about the history of the park and have been through almost every scenario that you bring up. They’ll pass you and very loudly say “Good Morning!” Then make a dad joke that’ll make you exhale loudly when you pass them. They are slower because of their age, but they have been doing it since 75 baby!

What About Mouthwash?

Trevor Moore once sang about when it’s too late to buy alcohol he posed the question…

What about mouthwash?

well let’s look at the fact like could mouthwash even get you drunk?

A person can get drunk from mouthwash. One of the most commonly abused brands of mouthwash is Listerine. Listerine is 26.9 percent alcohol (54-proof), which is a higher alcohol content than found in most beer, wine, and even some liquors.

but what about the side effects?

Mouthwash is designed to spit out rather than swallowed, and ingesting even a small amount can be seriously dangerous. Alcohol (ethanol) isn’t the only potentially dangerous ingredient in mouthwash.

The chemicals in mouthwash may include chlorhexidine gluconate, hydrogen peroxide, or methyl salicylate, which are all toxic to ingest. Ingesting these ingredients by drinking mouthwash can cause mouthwash overdose, liver failure, and gastrointestinal damage. Drinking methyl alcohol can cause blindness, organ failure, or death.

So while it may get the job done it may be harmful to your health but I guess so is drinking actual alcoholic beverages.

So drink responsibly and uh… Cheers?

Sex That’s Out Of This World

So… Out of curiosity has anyone ever had sex in space?

Well it is documented that no humans have ever had sex in space… However it may have happened undocumented, it isn’t like we haven’t sent men and women out in space together before hell we sent a married couple out on the same mission, I mean in 1992, when NASA’s Space Shuttle Endeavor was launched with a married couple on board. Mark Lee and Jan Davis, both astronauts, met at NASA. They married in secret a year before liftoff. Their joint flight to space was practically their honeymoon.

How would sex be different in space?

We can assume that sex in space is a possibility, but how is it different to ours on Earth? Let’s start with the basics: sex drive.

The little publicly available information that we have indicates that being in space leads to reduced libido, at least at first.

That’s because microgravity, the weightlessness astronauts experience in space, causes hormonal changes, like decreases in estrogen. Low estrogen levels have been linked to a drop in sex drive.

Unfortunately, most of what we know about hormones in space comes only from tests on men. That’s because only 11.5% of astronauts are female, and the relatively few women who have been to space opted to go on birth control beforehand to avoid menstruation. This makes it tricky to disentangle artificial hormonal changes from those caused by space flight. 

Another factor in cosmic sex drive is a change in astronauts’ internal clock.

“When you’re going around the planet right now, every 90 minutes, your circadian rhythms are altered and that alters everything, including your sex hormones and probably your libido,” said Saralyn Mark. 

The science also matches astronaut Walter’s on-site experience. In his book, he writes that, during his short 10-day stay in space, he had no libido. 

But there’s hope: According to Walter, astronauts’ sex drive does readjust after a few weeks in space. 

So spend a few weeks in space and maybe the sex will be out of this world but probably the same release as just not having sex for a couple of weeks and hopping back into the groove.

The Real Issue with Baldwin’s “Prop Gun”

The REAL Issue with Alec Baldwin’s “Prop” gun.

On October 21st 2021, during film rehearsal for the up and coming movie “Rust”, Alec Baldwin discharged a live round from a “prop gun” injuring director Joel Souza and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. No charges have been filed to date.

After reading about the events that transpired there is seemingly one question on everyone’s mind, how did this “prop gun” end up firing a live round and killing Halyna Hutchins. Surely a “prop” should not be capable of such things.

It comes as no shock to learn that this “prop” was nothing more than a regular run of the mill handgun that was intended To fire a blank round. In reality there was nothing about this that made it a “prop”. Guns are not toys and should not be treated as such, ever. The mere fact the firearm was capable of firing any form or round, live or blank, indicates that there is nothing that separates this so called “prop” from any other handgun intended to fire live ammunition.

Gun safety should always be at the forefront for anyone holding or in proximity of any form of firearm, real or not. What should be common sense, unfortunately seems to be the biggest common issue when it comes to individuals handling firearms, which is the Golden rule of gun safety; you should NEVER aim any form of firearm, loaded or not, real or fake, in the direction of another person. Once again Guns are not toys, not “props”, and should not be handled as such.

Baldwin, an avid gun control activist, neglected to practice proper firearm safety while handling the alleged “prop”. The National Rifle Association outlines three major steps everyone should take to ensure the safe handling of firearms; Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction, always keep your finger away from the trigger until ready to safely fire, and always keep the gun unloaded until ready to fire. Regardless of the gun was being used as a prop or not, it was Baldwin’s responsibility to be an educated handler of the firearm and use it safely.

While there is a large backing supporting a visibly distraught and traumatized Alec Baldwin claiming it was not his fault, and rather the person responsible for preparing the “prop”, we simply cannot shift the blame because of how someone feels after the fact. Naturally the prop director responsible for having a live round on set to begin with should be held accountable for his negligence, but at the end of the day Alec Baldwin is still responsible for pulling the trigger that took someone’s life. Surprisingly, at the time of writing this article no charges have been filed against Baldwin or anyone else on the production end of the film. Only time will tell if Alec Baldwin will ever face the consequences of his actions, or if the actor producer will find his way out of the involuntary murder of his crew member. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Halyna Hutchins.

At the end of the day you can call it whatever you like, but a firearm that has the ability to discharge any form or round, live or blank, is NOT a prop. With the unimaginably large budget most of these Hollywood movies have it is extremely unfortunate there is not some law or regulation for mock firearms to be made and used in place of real, functioning ones.

How To Survive Your First Week At A New Job

There are few moments in life as anxiety-heavy as your first week at a new job. There are so many new faces, jargon and data systems to understand. While learning the basics, you’re eager to make a splash and prove yourself to your new coworkers. During this stressful time, it’s nice to have a little guidance on how to survive (and thrive!) your first week on the job.

1. Start building relationships

Your first week on the job may be the most time you’ll ever have at the office to get to know your coworkers. Take advantage of your orientation to meet other newbies. Start conversations whenever you meet a new person, and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.  Be persistent even if it makes you nervous. Establish a common ground with everyone you meet. Ask them how long they have been on board and if they’re originally from the area. Smile as much as possible, even if you’re feeling like a hot mess on the inside.

2. Get organized

You’ll probably have at least a little down time during your first week on the job. Use some of that time to start getting organized immediately. Make email folders, get your work space in order with some folders, binders and pens. Prepare your email signature. Also, you might want to start updating your social media and information to include your new job.

3. Soak up information and take notes

Your first week on the job is the time to really listen and absorb new information. Before taking action in your new job, you need to understand the basics of how the office operates. Even though you’re going to have questions in the future, the more you write down and understand during your first week, the less you’ll have to ask later on.

4. Say “yes” to all invitations

If you get an invite to lunch, dinner, etc – take it. These opportunities are the chance to build critical relationships that improve office communications. The more friends you make early on, the easier it will be to succeed.

5. Establish expectations with your boss

Know what your boss is looking for in the first months at your job. You want to make sure you’re on the same page in terms of what’s expected of you and how your success will be measured.

6. Ask questions (at the right time)

Your first week at work is the perfect time for questions. Just be smart about when you ask them. In the middle of an explanation, you might want to jot down your question and wait to see if the question is answered. Also, take note of which questions are easy to Google or find answers to in a handbook.

7. Learn office politics and avoid gossip

Office politics are a part of every office dynamic and can make or break you at your job. Before jumping in with new ideas and critiques, it’s vital to understand how the office works and know who you can trust. You don’t want to rock the boat – especially when it’s unclear how the boat works. Avoid gossip and take everything at face value as you watch your colleagues and learn from their actions.

8. Dress for success

Spend some time before you start your job to plan out your first week’s wardrobe. You want to dress in layers, in case the AC is freezing. Err on the side of appearing too formal – a sloppy look will affect how people perceive you. Pay attention to hygiene and grooming. Also, try to dress as comfortable as possible. With all the extra nerves, wearing comfy clothes will be a small comfort.

9. Accept all help and advice

Be warm and receptive to assistance – even if you think you can handle things on your own. First of all, it’s a good way to bond with a coworker and find your office allies. Secondly, even if you don’t think you need help, you’ll likely learn at least one new thing with an established colleague at your side.

Now that you have some guidance go ahead and apply for that office job!!
