    How many weeks in a year?

    Any impatient soul counting down to their next birthday, annual holiday or festival is going to need 52 weeks’ worth of patience, because that’s the length of a complete year.

In this case, the calculation is 366 divided by 7, which equals 52.2857, so it’s still just 52 weeks. This is all based upon…

That kiss kept getting thinner and harder until I began to feel we were after some sort of bone-crushing, science-fiction jaw lock right there under the street light. No lips, no give-and-take. A kiss demands a little surrender, yes. But there must be some resistance, too. That’s what the lips are for. 2. Touch, don’t grab. Use your hands. Delicately. My girlfriend sometimes lays her…

    How to Clear Browser Cache in Firefox, Safari, IE, Chrome, and Opera

    When it comes to browser history and privacy, most people would rather peruse the Web incognito than use a platform that tracks their every move. However, your browser cache can be helpful as well as harmful, temporarily storing website components such as images, scripts, and other page snapshots for quicker viewing whenever you revisit the same site down the line. It’s a convenient way of reducing bandwidth and perceived lag, along with load times, but it’s also a computing mechanism that can leave you in the stone age in terms of up-to-date viewing.
