Back in my day, we had guestbooks, counters at the bottom of our blogs, and animated mouse cursors!
Your life has been a lie.
Most aluminum foil boxes have press-in tabs that secure the roll in place, so you don’t have worry about it flying out every time you rip off a sheet.
You know how when you violently shake a container of Tic Tacs into your palm it seems as though you always end up with zero or seven? Avoid that altogether by letting a mint gently glide into the tiny lid crevice.
Ever find yourself with an individual cup of applesauce or yogurt and no spoon? Instead of slurping and probably getting half of your snack on your shirt, turn the foil lid into a makeshift spoon.
Obviously, don’t try this if you’ve got a mouth full of metal fillings.
Never arm wrestle with a jar of peanut butter, just to make sure it’s not oily on top and crumby on the bottom, again. Store it upside down, so the oils distribute evenly.
Instead of grabbing multiple cups of ketchup, simply pull apart at the edges for twice the space.
This is easily the most recognizable plunger. Chances are you have one lying around the house. BUT, did you know it’s only meant to be used on clogged sinks?
To unclog a toilet, you need a flange plunger, which doesn’t have a flat bottom.
The containers actually are meant to unfold into a makeshift plate, which you can easily reassemble into a box for storing leftovers.
More info here.
You only need to use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste for effective cleaning. Most ads feature globs of toothpaste the size of the brush because a.) it looks nice and b.) it makes you use up more toothpaste.
Chances are you’ve been scooping the toppings with your spoon onto the yogurt.
But, have you realized, the topping holder folds over, so you can pour the toppings DIRECTLY ON TOP?
The flap is meant to be placed toward the front. This prevents the agony of sitting down on a toilet seat, only to realize you’ve dragged the cover down into the bowl.
Turn the tab around so that it acts as holder that can stop the straw from raising out of the can as the soda fizzes.
Plug the cords into a loop to avoid disconnection.
OK, sure, you can use them to make mess free crafts with your kids, but did you know you can also use them…
Pull the sides out so you child has something to grasp onto, stopping them from spilling.
To easily break off a single piece of Toblerone, pull toward the bar, not away from it.
That hanging hole doubles as a spoon rest, in a pinch.
Tie floss into a loop and never strangle your fingers again.
Take the lid from the top of cup (or grab an extra) and use it as a perfectly sized coaster.
Friend: You should start talking to her.
Me: haha...I no way!
Friend: Prolly an easy B.J.
I've eloquent friends.
Rolling to the finish line and scratching your butt itch? Win-win.
"DON'T MAKE THIS HARDER THAN IT SHOULD!"
The weather was perfect. My friends were there. What more could one ask for? Oh, lots of boobies.
I asked the girls if they could touch their elbows together...
About six months.
Copping a feel.
It was like Chinatown at the beach.
Nom nom nom.
Me (thinks to self): That's what she said....
Coworker #2: Yeah, she told me she's coming.
Me (thinks to self): Oh my god. Please stop. Resist all temptation, Chris.
Boss: Oh, here she comes.
Me: That's what she said!!!!
Everyone stares at me in silence.
Me: Err...she said she was coming to the meeting...that's what she said...
Me: I saw the curliest pube in the urinal.
Coworker: How curly?
Me: It was like the spring of a click pen.
After a successful campaign, we get to see Xanga move onto version 2.0. It's been a roller coaster of emotions for many.
When we all first heard the news of Xanga possibly shutting down.
Then we started seeing people donating.
After a while, donations slowed.
Whenever we got a rare update from the Xanga Team.
When the first "deadline" approached.
When Xangans started to feel "lied to."
Half of Xanga (that felt lied to) versus the other half who supported Xanga no matter what.
How most Xangan feel after this whole campaign.
When we finally reached the fundraising goal today.
What people thought of the Xanga Team after they reached their goal.
Going through the numerous Xanga threads on Facebook regarding the fundraiser.
How most people view @thexangateam
How @edlives must feel right now.
How we all should feel after everything is said and done. This is Xanga and the community that makes it so great compared other blogging platforms. Let's move on and have some fun!
So here we are. The final days, hours, minutes of Xanga are here.
In slightly discouraging news, we are still ways from our goal of saving Xanga. A new Korean compact car away, to put it in perspective. However, if Bill Gates or Oprah happen to find this and are feeling more generous than usual, perhaps we'll see each other once more down the road leaving eProps for one another. If not, it can only be summed up in a short, but powerful clip from Titanic.
My first Xanga post. Oh, the irony. Oh, how far it's come.
In the middle of math class, a random boner popped up. As fate would have it, the teacher selects me to come to the front and solve a math problem. My face was immediately tomato red, I never sweat so profusely and so quickly. I tried to buy some time by "tying" my shoelaces. After about 10 seconds (not nearly enough time), I kind of hunched over and speed walked like a senior citizen at the mall, straight to the chalkboard. I don't know if anyone noticed my half limpy in my pants, but I never felt so much panic in such a short period of time.
What moment in your life caused the most panic?
So a few friends and I make our way around St. Marks in the city, trying to dodge traffic while looking for a parking spot. While looking, I spot an Ethiopian restaurant. That's when the devil horns came shooting out of my scalp; I had to blurt out to my friends a snide comment. Almost "go straight to hell" worthy.
"It must be bland to eat air."
Eight player linked Daytona racing. A classic!
How did this Xangan (now defunct!) do?
You be the judge of whether she did well or not (hint: gutter).
Thumb up for scale. Mobile re-purposed as a censorship tool.
The contents inside. I sniffed the shirt and it had a hint of eProps.
The rarest of rare times that I'll take a mirror shot.
I'll be rocking this shirt everywhere now.
Thanks again for the shirt, @Saintvi!

"Jewish mother stereotype - The stereotype generally involves a nagging, loud, highly-talkative, overprotective, smothering, and overbearing mother or wife, who persists in interfering in her children's lives long after they have become adults and who is excellent at making her children feel guilty for actions which may have caused her to suffer." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_mother_stereotype
AKA EVERY OTHER ASIAN MOTHER OUT THERE!
Mom: "ARE YOU EATING? FINISH YOUR DINNER, WE WORK HARD TO BUY FOOD FOR THE FAMILY!"
THE NEXT DAY
Mom: "DID YOU GAIN WEIGHT?"
Me: How was your weekend?
Coworker: Went to the casinos.
Me: Which one?
Coworker: Harrah's. Had the pool, black jack...
Me: Hah! That's where I drunkenly slipped and fell on my head in the bathroom.
Coworker laughs: That's where I dropped my phone in the toilet!
Me: Ah, memories.
So buying this!
After watching this:
3-5 business days later.
My new coworker!
Just look at him go!
Reasons why "Dunky The Bird" (yes, I've named mine) is better than you.
Here's how he works:
