Unsure of how to confess your love to someone? Try this:
- Acquire several dozen limes.
- Go up to them and then drop all the limes.
- Start picking them up, but keep dropping them. The clumsier you look the better.
- Keep doing this until you have their attention (this could take up to thirty minutes).
- Finally gather up the limes. Try looking a bit sheepish.
- Look them deeply in the eyes and say, “Sorry. I’m bad at Pickup Limes.”
- Marry them.
Anonymous asked: “honestly why do girls make such a big deal about their periods? It’s just a bit of blood for few days and then it’s over. That’s nothing compared to being kicked in the balls- a confused male”
The accuracy level of this post. I can’t even.

Top 10 Most Beautiful and Expensive Flowers in the World
- Lisianthus - also known as Eustoma grandiflorum, is an annually blooming flower. Lisianthus comes in a variety of colors including white, pale purple, lavender, and blue violet. Since most of these delicate flowers are shipped white and are very fragile, they earned the name “paper flowers” ($10-$35 per bundle).
- Lily of the Valley - beautiful but poisonous, these flowers (Convallaria majalis) are popular for their delicate, bell-shaped blooms. The flower, known in old Christianity as Our Lady’s Tears, only takes weeks before perishing with a short lifespan ($15-$50 per bundle).
- Hydrangea - known for its unique circular cluster of little flowers per stem and difficult cultivation. It comes in mostly white blooms, but some are noted for being blue, pink, light purple or violet. Hydrangeas can easily wilt and should be purchased on their day of use, most particularly weddings ($7 or more per stem).
- Gloriosa - native only to South Africa and Asia, this flower is highly expensive because of its rarity and exotic looks. The Gloriosa is known for its stunning beauty with varying colors from tip to center. They usually come in deep reds, oranges, yellows, and yellow-green ($6-$10 per flower).
- Tulip - single layer flowers with lush and deep colors. In the 17th century, these rare Dutch flowers had stronger colors than any other flower during that era and were incredibly expensive. Tulips were highly regarded as status symbols if they were in your garden ($5,700 in 17th century dollars).
- Saffron Crocus - this flower is more famous for being a spice with a huge demand than a bloom, but is still commonly sold as a flower. The price reflects the fact that it takes around 80,000 flowers to develop 500 grams of spice from the yellow stamen, all of which are hand-picked and dried ($1,200-$1,500 per pound).
- The Gold of Kinabalu Orchid - this flower sells at an extremely high price due to its rarity and beauty. This flower is found only in the Kinabalu National Park in Malaysia. Their growth is extremely difficult and takes a long process as its bloom can take years before it appears ($6,000 per flower).
- Shenzhen Nongke Orchid - a flower that was completely made by the hands of man, it took researchers eight years to grow. It sells for a high price not only for its rarity but also for its appearance. It takes four to five years for the orchid to blossom and even has a delicate taste ($200,000 per flower).
- Juliet Rose - this flower made its debut in 2006 at the Chelsea Flower Show. It took David Austin 15 years to create this flower. Because of this, the Juliet Rose is also known as the £3 million rose.
- Kadupul Flower - this unique flower has no price tag, not only because its rare, but it is a flower so delicate that cannot be picked without causing damage to it. In addition, it dies before dawn. It only blossoms at night and emanates a calming, lovely fragrance. It will only last for hours after being picked and has never made it to the shops, not even online. It is the flower that cannot be bought (a truly priceless flower).
Amazing Vintage Key Guns
In the present day, prison guards do not carry firearms often unless they’re isolated from the prison population. In the olden days, guards (also known as “turnkeys”) needed some extra help with the prisoners, especially when opening cell doors which usually required two hands. To solve this problem, someone invented the key gun. The information available on the invention is limited. That “someone” was quite a unique person to ingeniously think of making a gun from a key. Given the size of the “gun’s” parts, it was probably someone who made watches. The craftsmanship on some of these is spectacular. The oldest key gun in the collection is from the 16th century.
