Farting in public has never been easier.

8 Things You Learn Living With A Guy

"I'm going to live with a boy!" said Monica to Rachel in tears on the set of Friends. Monica was devastated at first about giving up being roommates with Rachel to have Chandler move into the apartment. However, as time went by, she couldn't see her life any other way and neither could devoted fans. When I moved out to California after marrying the love of my life, aside from leaving my family and friends, I was terrified. What would it be like to live with a boy!? Would the toilet seat always be left up? Would dirty clothes constantly be lying astrew? Neither one of those I found to be true but there are multiple things I learned from living with a boy. Here are eight of my greatest lessons:

1. The unmatched importance of a hand vacuum

One word: Crumbs...all over the gosh darn carpet. Regardless of the fact that half of those crumbs might be yours, it never hurts to invest in a quick hand-vac.

2. The necessity to have separate bed blankets

One in every two people is a bed-hog, true story. Chances are one of you will hog the covers and though you may have had your own bed at one point, you won't anymore. It pays big to have separate blankets.

3. A man too can appreciate the witty, emotional and gripping relationship plots of Gilmore Girls.

He may say that he's not interested in watching your girly shows and chick-flick movies...that is, until he looks up from his video game and asked, "Wait, what happened!?" Suddenly, he won't let you watch a single episode of Gilmore Girls without him.

4. A human's body temperature can really be 10,000 degrees.

Lava-man does exists, he is every guy ever created. I'm not sure how it's possible but an average guy has a body temperature of at least 10,000 degrees. The perk to this is on a snowy night, no blanket or fire is needed. You have your own personal heating vent right next to you.

5. The sounds of car crashes, gun-shots and "I have a galaxy to save" are what will fill your living room.

Don't worry, your house hasn't been taken over by CIA agents or aliens, just the xbox. It's now a part of your everyday life just like oxygen.

6. How to play said crashing, shooting and galaxy games.

You can't live with a gamer and not learn how to play. You might be the worst Call of Duty player to ever exist on the planet, but at least you know what the buttons on the controller do...you hope.

7. How to appreciate the ability to fart in public.

It's completely liberating. While girls usually pause the movie, go to the bathroom and take care of business in private, around guys...well...let's just say there's no need to pause the movie.

8. That there's nothing you love quite as much as the smell of fresh pancakes on a saturday morning.

Saturday mornings become big breakfast mornings and, as it turns out, your man actually makes the best pancakes.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
