For the first time in recorded history, my team did not win at bar trivia. We came in third. I am unbelievably ashamed by this fact. I would like to apologize to all scholars of constitutional law for the 8/10 we received on that section, to the manufacturers of automobiles and my chemistry teacher, for the 7/10 we received on THAT section. And to R. Kelly, for forgetting the actual title of his iconic “Bump ‘n Grind.”
And I would like to apologize specifically to Daniel O’Brien, for letting him down both in the American history sense, and the general nerd knowledge sense. I don’t stand a chance with him now, and it’s all my fault.
Couldn’t sleep last night, so I binged on Cracked.com videos. Now I have a(n even bigger) crush on Dan O’Brien. A big ol’ terrible, lovely crush.
I’m having one of those days where I’m increasingly convinced that I will never look attractive, never feel attractive, and will in fact watch each and every one of the people I know pair off and live happily ever after while I sit in front of my computer and drink beer until I die alone.
I’m probably being ridiculous, but in the words of a very wise film, “maybe feelings are feelings because we can’t control them.”
Please convince me that this awesome man
Doesn’t look even one bit like this one
NO I’M JUST SEEING THINGS AND THEY DON’T HAVE SIMILAR FEATURES
Well, this post has won the internet.
HOLY SHIT MCGANN YOU DO LOOK LIKE HIDDLESTON
I knew McGann had the reputation of being the first hot doctor but wow yeah I can understand why now….

More like father and son at this point, TBH.

DRUNK HAIR VIDEO 3: DRUNK HARD WITH A VENGEANCE. Or with purple and blue hair dye and bleach, whatever. The important thing is the drinking.
"… smelled soap and shampoo and something that was something uniquely <name’s>…"
Are we writing about people or bloodhounds?
I thought it was just a tropey fanfic thing, but it’s all over mainstream romance, too. I know there are super-sensitive humans who can distinguish between people by smell alone, but is that really so common? Hell, I lit a damned potholder on fire today and didn’t notice the smell of flaming polyester two feet behind me, until I turned around and saw the flames.
This has nothing to do with people who wear strong perfume/cologne, and it’s definitely not restricted to paranormal romances/AUs. I’m talking about characters who are average, normal humans who can detect not only soap and shampoo — without any mention of bathing, so this isn’t fresh-out-of-the-shower stuff — but… I dunno, a unique pheromone signature or something.
So tell me, folks. Can you distinguish between people by smell alone?
I can, particularly people I’m attracted to. It’s actually one of my primary deciding factors for whether or not I make a move, and has nothing to do with artificial fragrances. Fragrances tend to bug me, unless they’re subtle or completely harmonious with a person’s natural scent. I never thought this was weird until now, but it’s actually kind of weird.
