When I first told my boss I could totally top "superburp" girl, he looked at me incredulously and said, "Why have you been hiding this talent for more than a year?"
I dunno. It just didn't come up. Nobody randomly started belching in the hallways of DC101, as hard as that is to believe, so I didn't get a chance to bust out my skillz.
"Superburp" girl sounds to me like she's yelling while burping. Also, she gulps down tiny little amounts of air to power this belch. A true pro can suck it all down at once.
Let me demonstrate how I belch on command.
The creators of "Waiting in Line 3D" describe it as an "anti-game."
What exactly makes a game an "anti-game?"
A game about standing in line definitely qualifies as an anti-game. Especially since the object of the game means you have to repeatedly punch yourself in the face because waiting in the line gets so boring. Not too many punches, mind you. If you punch yourself too many times, you die. Game over.
Sound like fun? Or does it sound like these guys like messing with people? Because they said that's one of their missions in life.
Claypool Hill, VA - This guy brought both a knife and a gun to the fight, although judging from the slice to the other guy's arm (that went all the way to the bone), he only used the knife. No word on who got the parking space they were fighting over.
Rialto, CA - Another fight in the parking lot that resulted in a broken hand and finger for the cop trying to break it up. As you can imagine, the guy responsible was arrested, along with a female relative who jumped into the fray when other cops tried restraining him.
Philly, PA - What happened to a good ole fashioned hair-pulling catfight between women? Stun guns are cheating. Why, yes, there's video of it...
Social intelligence means more than figuring out whether you're coming off as a creep to the girl you just met. Turns out if you do a lot of projects that involve being a part of a team, social intelligence directly affects overall group intelligence.
In layman's terms, you need to be able to read the other people in your group to tell whether or not the shy person really wants to say they think there's a better way, but keep getting trampled by the boisterous Type A guy. A collective effort needs to be truly collective to work the way it's intended, and without everyone participating, there's a significantly lower chance it will.
With that in mind, you can test your social intelligence here. It's actual research being conducted by Harvard, so not only do you get a bead on how well you read people, you're also aiding the development of solutions for people who aren't that great at it.
Speaking of not being that great at reading people, check this out for some tips on how to get better at it.
Elan Gale is a TV producer who was flying home with millions of other Americans yesterday for Thanksgiving. On his flight was "Diane," the woman sitting in 7A, who was loudly lamenting that she needed to get home for Thanksgiving. When a flight attendant responded that he too was looking forward to seeing his family, she responded with, "This isn't about you!"
Elan then took things to an awesome passive aggressive level by sending "Diane" a glass of wine and a note.
Check out the tweet trail, along with the pics of the notes, and Elan's mom's message to "Diane" after she found "Diane" slapped Elan once they got off the plane.
