@Anonymous "How do you feel about being Black and Filipino? Can you speak Tagalog? Do you feel connected to both sides? I'm planning to move to the Philippines and would like to marry a Filipina so my future kids would be Black and Filipino."

    It just is. It’s something that I understand, love and accept. The same way that I accept that I am a woman or an American, I also am of black and Filipino descent. In terms of family and I guess so culture, I do feel a distance to a certain to extent. My relationship with my family is very limited due to the distance and the other side of my family lives in Chicago and I don’t see them much. It is up to you as a parent how much you want to expose family/culture to your children. My parents raised me around other families who had half black/Filipino children and I consider them my cousins/fam. I don’t speak Tagalog, but it’s not a language that’s foreign to me and there are words/phrases that I do know. Hope that helps!

    Window Socket - Kyuho Song & Boa Oh


    So this is an absolutley brilliant idea! Just attach the plug on to a window and it will harness solar energy. A small converter will convert it into electricity which can be freely used as a plug when you are in the car, on a plane or outside.

    Love this design and I really think it has a great potential.

    "One: Buy condoms. Buy them and keep them with you at all times, and use them before you are asked to use them. And use them every time. The peace of mind you allow your partner will free her to be vulnerable with you, and that, my son, is exactly what sex is about. Condoms are sexy. In fact, call buying condoms foreplay.
    (Footnote: If you are too embarrassed to buy condoms, you are not ready to have sex.)

    Two: Kissing is not merely foreplay. Spend entire evenings making out on the couch while fully clothed. Believe me, dry-humping rocks.

    Three: Sex is not just about friction. It’s about emotion. Stop trying to find her clitoris and find her heart. Because then she’ll help you find her clitoris.

    Four: If you really wanna know how to please a woman, ask her how she masturbates. Then do that. A lot. If she claims she doesn’t masturbate, offer to take her shopping for a vibrator so you can both learn the vocabulary of her body together.

    Five: Don’t put anything in her butthole you wouldn’t want in your own.
    (Footnote: Try a pinky finger, it’s kinda awesome.)

    Six: When you go down on her—and you will go down on her, and if you are my son, you will be amazing at it—tell her how good she tastes. Stop in the middle and kiss her deeply so she knows how good she tastes. Do the same when she goes down on you.

    Seven: A simple Google search will yield 1,327 euphemisms for male masturbation, yet only 23 for female masturbation. If guys spent less time jacking off and more time jilling off, this world would be a happier place.

    Eight: Everything you need to know about the importance of the clitoris is in the movie Star Wars. You are Luke Skywalker piloting your penis-shaped X-Wing Fighter deep inside her trench. Remember: seventy percent of all Death Stars cannot be blown up through penetration of the trench alone. It must be through focused contact with that little exhaust port at the top of the trench. Otherwise, any explosions you experience will be merely Hollywood special effects.

    Nine: Just because you come doesn’t mean she has, so don’t you dare come before her. Focus completely on your partner. Don’t worry about gettin’ yours, you’re a guy. You always get yours. Your job is to make sure she’s gettin’ hers.

    Ten: If sex with your partner lasts no longer than this poem, you are not making love. You are masturbating with her body instead of your hand. Shame on you. Go back to step one. You’ve got a lot of learning to do.
    Love, Dad."

    Chicago opens up for diagonal pedestrian crossings

    These are great. Giving pedestrians the opportunity to cross in all directions and getting automobiles from every direction to stop at the same time is a great reminder that cities are a collaboration.

    Hell yeah. Experienced this in Denver and loved it.
