Fun fact : St Patrick was associated with the color blue , not green
@SpungBab, because the national colour of Ireland is blue. Yay for QI.
Ever wondered the origin of corn beef and cabbage? It was actually never a popular dish in Ireland. Corn beef was popular in the slums of New York by impoverished Jewish immigrants because it's so cheap. When their Irish neighbors moved in, the Jewish taught the Irish how to cook corn beef to make it taste good, they added cabbage, and the rest is history.
@Orange Sherbert, Acording to my grandmother, my great grandfather (a Russian Jewish immigrant) always had corn beef with his matzoh ball soup. He was apparently the only one in the family that ate the two together in the same bowl. I tried it recently when going over the menu for our family's upcoming Passover dinner with my grandmother, and I gotta say it's really not bad.
@OneHellOfAButler, I've never heard of corned beef in matzah ball soup but it actually doesn't sound half bad. Maybe I'll try it sometime.
@Orange Sherbert, it's a little different, but yeah it's ok. For me the soup has to be pretty salty, but that's just my own personal taste. Meanwhile my father (of Welsh and Irish decent) insists that it's just weird and makes corn beef and cabbage the Irish way (the "right" way according to him). So it's cool that you made this post because I've experienced it both ways.
@Orange Sherbert, bacon and cabbage is an Irish thing
So I have a girl question. There's this cute girl in one of my classes and so I decided to ask her out to coffee after class and she said yes and gave me her number when I asked for it too. I don't know to me she seemed into it to me but then she cancelled a couple hours before and told me she was having her bf help her with math. Now she kind of avoids me in class. I don't know i just freaked her out or she doesn't like confrontation but I would like to at least be friends with her. She seems like definitely someone I would like as a friend but I don't know how to even get there
@Rainbowdro420, as someone who has fvcked up so may times I can tell you what NOT to do. (I'm 0-7 on girlfriend in my entire life) everything after the "..." is my personal opinion but again I'm 0-7 so my advice may not be the best advice.
1. Do not overreact and keep bugging her about it...try opening up to her about how you are wondering if she's interested in something else, basically square one in the relationship again.
2. Make your intentions known...if you want to be friends then make that aware but just realize the friendzone is real and I've been in it twice already and am currently in it, and it's all but impossible to get out of without destroying your friendship.
3.small talk with her but don't go out of your way or you will look desperate... simple stuff like how's her day going, personally I would ask her about something in the class and try to snowball a conversation from there. you will be able to tell quickly if she doesn't like you.
@Rainbowdro420, I'm not gonna sugarcoat it it's a long, extremely stressful, and hard process but if you do it right you'll end up with a girlfriend or one heck of a friendzone...it all depends on what you want out of her
Good luck bud...you're gonna need it
@No Sjit, I don't mind the friend zone especially since she's someone who I can relate to in school but I guess her first impression of me doesn't look like it went well. But thanks your advice is really helpful
@Rainbowdro420, good luck bud I found a girl I was super in to and she liked most of the stuff I did...practically a female me, she wanted a friend I wanted more and if it failed. Remember that I have literally no experience here so tread lightly with my advice, the only reason I know not to do this is because it backfired for me already
@No Sjit, no worries man, your advice was solid.
*To anyone who doesn't want to read all of his advice, it's best summed up by saying "don't look like a desperate chump" (except worded nicer)
@Rainbowdro420, hate to say it, but if she pulled the boyfriend card then there's no getting out of the friend zone.
What I get from what you said is that you're genuine, so I'll help you out.
First things first, if you're like neck beard guy/talk about Minecraft a bunch irl/thinks Doritos and mountain dew MLG snack time goodness, then you're not cool enough to have friends.
Luckily for you, you didn't give me that vibe. So step 2, show that you want to be her friend, but also that you're fine if she doesn't want to be homies. That goes back to the "don't look like a desperate chump".
Step three, do talk to her, but not so much that it's weird. You already have her number, so watch out for how often you start the conversation, and the types of replies you get. If you're asking all of the questions, and she only replies with like 1-3 words, then drop her now.
If you're still qualified based on what I've said, it's pretty easy from there, but if not then don't get too hung up on her
@Rainbowdro420, you could just be like "sorry for the confusion I wasn't asking you on a date you just seem cool" idk maybe that could work
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, Just keep that copied for pretty much any of the people that look for advice on here.
Happy late St Patrick's day!!
Yes mi lord
Dynamite bottom left corner, pie at the bottom in the rocks, but I don't think the eyeball is there
St Patrick's day is supposed to be the only day Catholics are allowed to drink and it celebrates the day St Patrick died
St. Patrick really used a Pic axe
