“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”—Kurt Vonnegut (via aodouls) (via samanthacaroline) (via suzywire) (via fantasyaction)
If I fell in love with you, would you promise to be true and help me understand? Because I’ve been in love before, and I found that love was more than just holding hands. If I give my heart to you, I must be sure from the very start that you would love me more than her. If I trust in you, oh please don’t run and hide. If I love you too, oh please don’t hurt my pride like her; because I couldn’t stand the pain, and I would be sad if our new love was in vain. So I hope you see that I would love to love you…
have you ever looked at someones face that made you question so many of your decisions. or make you see a mirror image of yourself you dont really like. what are you supposed to do with those kind of people.
1. If your throat tickles, scratch your ear. “When the nerves in the ear are stimulated, it creates a reflex in the throat that can cause a muscle spasm… This spasm relieves the tickle.”
2. Your right ear is better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech (good tip for spies!) The left ear is better at picking up music tones.
4. Feel no pain Coughing during an injection can lessen the pain of the needle stick.
5. Clear your stuffed nose Forget Sudafed. An easier way is by alternately thrusting your tongue against the roof of your mouth, then pressing between your eyebrows with one finger.
7. Cure your toothache without opening your mouth Just rub ice on the back of your hand, on the V-shaped webbed area between your thumb and index finger… reduces toothache pain by as much as 50 percent
12. Make your heart stand still Trying to quell first-date jitters? Blow on your thumb. The vagus nerve, which governs heart rate, can be controlled through breathing… It’ll get your heart rate back to normal.
15. If your hand falls asleep while you’re driving or sitting in an odd position, rock your head from side to side. It’ll painlessly banish your pins and needles in less than a minute.
1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.
2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that?s a rigorous workout!
3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike.
4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.
5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.
6. Ever wonder how an ?X? came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.
7. Talk about a rush! Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.

9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don?t.
