Being a girl can be hard. The winter is fine, but then summer comes around and we all have to shave our legs again… well, most of us do anyways. In any case, you finally get to strut your beautiful clean-shaven legs around for everyone to see! Too bad you get hit on by the creepiest old man you’ve ever met! Yuck!
WELL, now there’s a solution, and it’s even better than throwing on just any old pair of pants or tights to cover up. A China-based company is now manufacturing hairy stockings! Yes, you read that right: stockings that are covered in hair. It’s probably enough to just walk away from the creepy stranger who is hitting on you and move on with your day, but I guess some people are just so good looking that they need creep-protection during all hours of the day!
The company selling these stockings (which can be found on sinaweibo.com) calls them a “super sexy, anti-pervert full leg-of-hair stocking essential for all young girls going out.” I’M SORRY, BUT WHAT?! I can just see it now, makeup done, hair styled, cute dress… AND A FULL LEG OF THICK, MATTED HAIR. I feel like a pair of sweatpants in public would probably be enough to keep any potential “perverts” away from you, but I could be wrong.
On top of the already oh-so high fashion item, these stockings also apparently come equipped with electric shocks and a GPS locator that will send your coordinates to your family and friends.
I know what my best friends are getting for their birthdays this summer.
Convince your friends that you should be part of the X-Men by turning water into ice instantly! As Grant Thompson shows you, It’s less sorcery and more science.
If you live in Ontario and are 19 years of age or older, let us all breathe a sigh of relief as the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (the governing body that controls the selling of alcohol) has averted a possible strike, or how I like to think of it, the driest summer Canada would have had since the Prohibition era. Let us all celebrate by watching a super cut of awesome ways to open a beer before we go buy a 24 pack for ourselves this long weekend.
A couple of guys show the rest of male-kind what may be the easiest way to pick up a girl. Just watch as they score phone numbers without having to say anything.
Yes, what kind? Because when these guys claimed to have mastered the easiest way to pick up girls, at least they asked the girls to put the numbers in their phone. They’re not exactly Ryan Gosling and it’s all kind of creepy, so I’m hoping these girls gave them some fake digits. At least the guy who sang those Taylor Swift lyrics put in some effort and he totally deserved to get a date out of that.
If you were to ask me how to write the perfect Valentines Day card, I would have a few pointers for you.
1) Speak from your heart
2) Sometimes, less is more. You can say so much in a few heartfelt sentences. No need for a novel.
3) Throw in something cute, like a single heart chocolate. A box of chocolates will have a girl saying “I can’t eat that” but one chocolate will make them say “awww.”
Apparently, I had it all wrong.
In this video we learn the tricks to the perfect Valentines day card, and the number one tip is plagiarism.
This column is the first of four installments hoping to inspire fandoms everywhere to wear what they love with pride. Because why should you limit your fan experience to your home or the latest con? The answer: THERE ARE NONE.
But just in case you’re unsure on how to break out of the hoodie-jeans-tee combo, I’m going to show you a couple of ways to incorporate some of your favourite fandom-related items into every day life.
We’re going to start a little easy this week with the novelty tee. You probably already have a lot of tees in your closet right now and I’m going to show you how to wear them in a more creative way. Just think of them in the way you would wear a graphic tee—you’re just going to be wearing your favourite band instead of some random illustration.
1. The well-fitted jacket
It’s important to note the t-shirt’s slouchy nature and the fact that it will inevitably stretch out and no longer fit your body perfectly. This quality makes it easy for any outfit to look shabby and the best way to counter is with a well-fitted jacket. That jacket could be a leather jacket (see Ryan Gosling above) or a blazer. You could even try pairing it with a varsity jacket but just be aware that this kind of jacket typically has a baggier fit to it so don’t be afraid to go a size down.
2. The Cardigan
The best kinds of cardigans are the ones that aren’t made of the same material as your t-shirt. I find jersey cardigans to be a little too flimsy nor does it provide enough visual contrast between the tee itself and the cardigan. Try and find a cardigan that has an interesting detail—whether it’s a shawl collar or interesting buttons. You could also try an oversized cardigan but just remember to keep your bottoms fitted as well (a.k.a. if you look like a skater from the 90’s, you’re doing it wrong).

I can’t believe I’m already in my second semester at Suffolk University in Boston. I feel like I just graduated high school last week.
My living situation was crazy in the sense that I live in a suite with four other roommates and when you throw five girls who don’t know each other in one room together, there’s gonna be problems. Girls can be cruel and fight about anything. One of my roommates ended up moving out and another barely ever comes home. But I ended up becoming best friends with my other two roommates so everything worked out in the end.
I’ve learned a lot along the way and I hope some of my experiences can help prospective students, confused about where to go.
1. Figure out whether or not you are a commuting or a dorming type of student.
Dorming and going away to college isn’t for everyone. A lot of people like to commute to school from home because it is usually cheaper than paying for housing and because it also gives you more time to do other things at home like keeping a job.
Personally, I decided to give dorming a try because I was ready to live on my own for a while. And it does have its ups and downs sometimes but I’m loving it.
2. Get in your applications as soon as possible!
When I was applying for college, I got all my applications in really really early. And guess what? I got accepted into all of them. Sending in applications long before the deadline really does help.
3. Pick a school you know you’re gonna LOVE.
If you already know what you want to major in, that’s great! First look at schools that have great programs for your major. And then after that, that’s when you start looking for schools in the location you love, tuition, population, and all that fun stuff.
4. Surround yourself with people who are going to make you happy.
College is a fresh start and an opportunity to meet new people. Don’t become friends with certain people just because you want to be “cool.” Then you’ll just end up trying to impress your “friends” all the time when in reality, you should just be yourself around true friends.
5. Don’t buy your books in advance Read more…
After years of failed experimenting and pre-drinking, there comes a time in every young person’s life when they finally learn how to make the perfect cocktail while sober. Not only is the achievement a rite of passage on the path to full adulthood, it’s a feat of restraint and refinement that screams, “Yes, I can enjoy a nice glass of alcohol without downing five other afterwards.”
It’ll also be the reason why you’ll ask your future spouse for mini-bar when you finally get around to finishing your basement. (You got to show off your skills somehow, right?)
Thanks to YouTube user HowToBasic, this rite of passage may be even closer than you think. The YouTube guru was nice enough to share a party favourite cocktail.
After you have finally mastered the art of bartending, make sure to take a look at HowToBasic’s other helpful tips on how to make sushi and how to change a nappy!
Warning: Too much fun may get you kicked out of any good party and a scolding from aforementioned future spouse.
The NHL lockout left many a fan with a lot of spare time this winter. While most of them filled this gaping hole in their lives with a new sport or reality show marathons, one Chicago family decided to build their own outdoor skating rink and document the process for the world to see.
15,000 gallons of water, 28,000 photos and one catchy techno track later and this is the result. Let’s hope whoever played photographer got a raise in their allowance!
Today is the last day of Movember. YAY! As of tomorrow males will no longer look like pedophiles and 70s porn stars and females can rejoice.
But how exactly does one end a month-long relationship with the lip fur? Luckily, Rhett & Link from College Humor have provided an easy to follow guide.
