Remember to Laugh…and Think

ig nobel 1Ingenuity and creativity keeps the world moving. Without them, cialis viagra sale we wouldn’t have the wonderful technology and gadgets we take for granted today. I’ve always enjoyed learning about wacky inventions because it’s quite interesting to see what the mind cooks up. Quite often these inventions make us laugh, viagra usa pharm but when we sit back afterwards, they also cause us to think about their plausible practicality.

The Ig Nobel Award acknowledges researchers and inventors that do just that. Since the 1990s, 10 minds each year accept this prize for their creative, yet applicable, inventions and research. To be considered for this award, nominations only need to fit one criteria: “First make people LAUGH…and then make them THINK”.  My favorite Ig Nobel Award is for the dual bra-face mask. It’s a hilarious concept to think about, but it actually makes sense! There’s so many women out there, and we all basically wear bras everyday; such an efficient safety method in case of an explosion or gas leakage. Gentleman, now you can really feel special when a lady gives you her favorite bra ;)

It’s wonderful to see that ingenuity is still in fashion. Many of us are brought into this world to be movers and shakers. Never stop tinkering and creating, but while you’re out there, remember to have some fun too

Princess Potty-Mouth

fckh8So today I was cruising my usual news and junky websites and I came across this video on FCKH8.com featuring young’s girls dropping the f-bomb in support of feminism.  For those who aren’t familiar with the FCKH8 campaign, viagra sales treat they are a for-profit T-shirt company promoting social change in LGBT equality, mind anti-racism, and anti-sexism.

I’ve written about my views towards feminism previously, but I have mixed feelings about this video.  I understand the central message, but I felt the aspects highlighted were presented too sarcastic and forceful for my taste.

Watch the video below and tell me what you think.  I would love to hear thoughts from my male and female followers.  Happy watching :)

first dateLadies and gentleman, best viagra diagnosis I have an age old question to ask: Who should pay on the first date?  

Personally, buy viagra rx I am a bit old school in the romance department.  I think the guy should pay for the initial few dates and then we can alternate if the relationship becomes more exclusive.  A little chivalry and romance goes a long way ;)

I would love to hear your thoughts. :)

Guys, You better pay on the first date

Beauty Wars

This post is dedicated to all my female readers (sorry guys, tadalafil cure I’ll get y’all next time :P ) as I want to discuss what we consider as “beautiful”.  A few months ago I watched a video featuring the model, Cameron Russell, where she discusses that “looks aren’t everything” and I thought this topic would be appropriate as bikini season is right around the corner.  How many ladies out there wish we could physically change something about ourselves?  To make our faces younger, our tooshies rounder, and our waists slimmer?  Now, I know we’ve all thought about it, so raise you hands high…don’t be ashamed to admit it…I know I’ve thought about it before.beauty 2

Starting at a young age, girls are flooded with images, songs, and magazines that flaunt the essence of beauty as being thin, young, gullible, and passive.  We carry these depictions throughout adolescence and into adulthood, where it’s continually validated by society and our surroundings.  Where is it “beautiful” to have a unique personality that can be expressed and cherished by everyone around the young lady?  After all, as my momma always said, “No matter how hard you try, your looks will eventually fade.  Then what will you be left with? Your heart, your mind, and your personality.” (I think my momma is a smart woman, don’t you? :) ).

With every passing generation, we wish the upcoming youths to have better opportunities than us, and I believe society’s depiction of “feminine beauty” is steadily changing, but there’s still work to be done.  We should want our daughters, sisters, nieces, and grand-daughters to grow up where their physical beauty is enhanced by their personality, heart, and mind, and not solely by their “genetic lottery” as Cameron Russell puts it.

So ladies, start embracing your own beauty – body, personality, heart, and mind – and only then are you ready to conquer the world :)

Be Mindful, Be Present – The Essence of Life

“Be mindful, Be present” is the mantra that comes to mind as I watched a Tedtalk today (I know, I know…another Tedtalk video, but I just can’t help myself :) ).

How many of us can ACTUALLY, HONESTLY say we can separate from our busy lives and just be?  Let me tell you a little secret…I find it difficult at times too…you’re not alone my dear readers.

Watching this video reminded me of my original purpose in starting La Vida Dolce – for us, including myself, to remember to reflect on our lives, learn from our experiences, and open our hearts.

Ready for the challenge?  It’ll only take 10 minutes.

Enjoy this wonderful video everyone: All it Takes is 10 Mindful Minutes

 

The Limits of Bio-enginnering

Last month, discount cialis stuff a friend of mine sent me this interesting talk about bio-engineering by Paul Root Wolpe from the website Ted Talks.  If you’ve never been to Ted Talks, viagra canada sildenafil take a few minutes to cruise the website.  You’ll find numerous discussions, each about 10-20 minutes, on many subjects ranging from relationships to science to spirituality.

I am a huge aficionado of Ted Talks.  I always enjoy learning and these talks allow just that.  You never know when you’ll learn something new.

In this video, Mr. Wolpe discusses bio-engineering and how it affects society, science, and morality.  The video invites the listener to think about several different questions, such as: What are the limits of bio-engineering?  Can scientific discovery and morality coexist?  When do we give ourselves authority over science specimens and subjects?

I encourage y’all to watch this and post your thoughts below: It’s time to question bio-engineering

Enjoy!
