What are your thought on girls wearing masculine watches? I dig it.
I’m for it, with a caveat.
Generally, I approve of girls wearing guys’ almost-anything. Guy’s shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, and watches are all fine. Pants…not so much. Maybe sweatpants around the house.
As far as watches go, I like when a girl rocks one with an oversized face, but here is my caveat. Girls shouldn’t wear watches with a face diameter greater than 40mm, and no one should wear one bigger than 44mm.
I keep hearing that the oversized watch trend is on its way out, but I haven’t seen it yet. Pretty much anyone, no matter how big your wrist is or how manly you are, looks stupid with a 47mm watch on and really stupid with a 50mm watch on (with the possible exception of Sly Stallone, who arguably started the whole oversized watch trend).
Even 44mm can make you look like a 12 year old who borrowed your dad’s watch if you have a small wrist. I do, so I’ll never wear one bigger than 40mm, like this one:
So yes, girls can absolutely wear masculine watches, as long as it doesn’t look like she strapped Flava Flav’s necklace to her wrist.
“The contest is two games stretched out over three nights: another half game tomorrow, with the final game Wednesday. In addition to giving IBM a nice infomercial spot (if you buy a Watson 1.0 license for home use, you also get a Watson mouse pad and some steak knives!) the documentary spots help explain how the contest came together, why this truly represents an AI breakthrough, and so forth.
It reminds me of the “human interest” stuff that always clogs up Olympic footage. Revealed tonight: Watson hopes to win these games for its adorable little sister, who has leukemia!”
If one of your friends has recently broken up with their long-term significant other whom they still adore but had to end things with for purely logistical reasons and you see them out at a bar, don’t ask them about it. It will ruin their night.
“You guys are a pretty self-selecting group of professionals, so there are three main ways that you are going to become personally involved with the law. Number one, drunk driving. Number two, you’ll get divorced, especially if you are a good lawyer and you’re working as much as you should. And number three, insider trading, because it’s easy.”—My Corps professor, on the perks of being a lawyer. (via thedeezydocket)
"But most appalling is the idea that Chrysler is one of the great things about gritty Detroit and America, when in fact it’s one of the corporate locusts that choked the city and nation purple with its credit-backed gobbling of skilled labor and its excretion of abandoned worker plants."
Says everything that I thought, but so more much effectively than I could have.
This morning at the gym, there were two frat bros lifting in my vicinity. Apparently they had just been to a class or did a frat-bonding exercise where they were each asked their dream profession (college is HARD). One of their friends said he would be an astronaut, and they were discussing their mutual admiration for this guy.
"Oh man, being an astronaut would be so cool. That would totally change your life! I’m six years old!" Fine, I made up that last sentence.
The first frat bro then started talking about his dream profession: “You know, If I could do anything, I really want to be like that Ky guy on Extreme Makeover Home Edition. It’s Ky, right? Yeah, Ky Pennington. I just want to renovate people’s houses for a living.”
Uh, dude, that’s called being a carpenter. You can just drop out of school and apprentice to be one. You’re completely wasting your time right now doing icebreakers with your frat bros. Follow your dreams!
