4 Ways To Know If You're A "Whovian"

4 Ways To Know If You're A "Whovian"

Four telltale signs you're talking to a die-hard "Dr. Who" fan.

Deep in the depths of space and time, a floating blue box appears out of nowhere. What is in this box, you may ask? Everywhere, people are on the edge of their seat to watch what comes out. Inside is the most interesting man/alien you will ever lay eyes on. His name is "The Doctor," and we will gladly be his loyal "Whovians." However, we have habits we developed thanks to the show and the countless characters in it. Now it's time to see a few things that make Whovians stick out to the world.

1. The dreaded gas mask.

Thanks to a certain episode, we have grown terrified to gas masks. If we see one for any reason, we scream and refuse to have any contact with it. We will not shake hands with a person with a gas mask on, we will not hug them, we will keep them in our sight at all times. Most of all, we will learn where their bedroom is so we can order them to bed. Even one touch from them will doom you — It takes a while, but a gas mask will forcibly grow out of you facial skin covering your face. You will become zombie-like and spread the virus.

2. Finding a reference.

Another sign of being a Whovian is the cry of joy when you randomly find a reference to the show. It can be anywhere: a comic book, a movie, another TV show or a game app. "Doctor Who" has so many references that it will be impossible to list them all. Just know when you are hanging out with a friend and they start freaking out and showing you something, like Mia in High School Story saying, "Time wimey," it means the world to us.

3. Spoilers.

The word spoilers has hilariously taken on a whole new meaning for us. Say you are walking down the street and bump into what you think is a total stranger. You quickly befriend them and moan about your life. You might say, "I wish my girlfriend/boyfriend will marry me and have an amazing kid." Chances are by that time, the stranger will give a knowing grin and tell you, "Spoilers." Most likely you are talking to you time traveling son/daughter/granddaughter/grandson or whomever. Wouldn't that be an interesting meeting?

4. Jack and Rose.

Ask someone to tell you about Jack and Rose and you will have two possible answers. The person will either go on about the tragic love story that went on during the maiden voyage of the Titanic or you will learn about the Whovians' Jack and Rose. "Doctor Who's" Jack and Rose is so much better. Jack is a captain who thought he was a con man and Rose takes a likening to him. They dance and get a little kiss. The shipping of them goes wild. (It doesn't go anywhere, though, much to my dismay.)

So, these 4 things will tell you if you met a Whovian or not. Just be subtle about it or not when asking the person and you will be on your way of taking over the world as Whovians.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
