The next time you hit up a formal event, repel chronic close-talkers and interrupt lingering hugs with this DIY bow tie. When someone gets within 19 inches of you (or whatever distance you prefer), the tie flashes four red lights until the person vacates your space bubble. I don’t typically have personal space issues, and I rarely wear bow ties, but damn, I totally want to make this and wear it to my next social event. [Makezine]
Dear Guy Who Got A Gorilla Tattoo On The Back Of His Head,
Listen, I thought our relationship was going pretty well. I thought your bald spot was cute. I really liked your taste in beaded chokers. And then you went to the tattoo parlor, and came back with … this. What am I supposed to do when I wake up in the middle of the night and this thing’s staring at me from your pillow?! Sorry to say it, but we’re gonna have to break up. I hope you and your fearsome head gorilla live happily ever after.
As much as I love to cook, I really, really hate to clean. My poor boyfriend often takes care of the post-dinner chaos in the kitchen (in related news, he is a saint), but lately I’ve been looking for ways to cut down on cleanup as much as possible so all either of us have to do after a meal is chill out on the couch and talk about how good it was. The answer? One pot meals. Cooking all your ingredients in one skillet or casserole dish means fast, easy prep and pretty much zero cleanup time. Sounds good to me! Click through for eight delish recipes that can be cooked up in just one pot…
“A particular film that had a real impact on me as a teenager was ‘Harold & Kumar [Go To White Castle].’ It had a deep impact on me. When it came out, I was 16 or 17, and my friends watched it religiously. We didn’t even know that White Castle was real then. We didn’t have it in Australia, and we assumed that it was made up for this movie. And it wasn’t until I came to the States that I found out that White Castle was a real place. When I shot the first ‘Hunger Games,’ Josh Hutcherson took me to his place in Kentucky … and he said there was a White Castle right by his house, so we bought three or four of these briefcases of White Castle burgers. We took them back to his house, and we ate them. And then, about a half an hour later — this was our first real bonding experience, me and Josh, this is when we became good friends — we went out to his garden and we threw up together.”
–”Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth told Jimmy Kimmel this charming story about his deep, real-life bond with Josh Hutcherson, who of course plays his romantic rival Peeta Mellark in the films. This story gave me an idea for a possible plot twist for “Catching Fire”: sponsors drop bags of White Castle burgers into the arena, all the tributes eat until they vomit and become BFFs. Hunger Games canceled in favor of a free screening of “Harold & Kumar” at the Capitol, hosted by President Snow, who — little known fact — can’t resist a good stoner comedy. What? It could happen!

3. Most of their pieces are available in sizes 0-16.
