15 Shady Facts About Eminem

Thought Up Alter Ego Slim Shady on the Toilet 

It’s weird how inspiration can strike at random times and places. For Eminem, the name for his alter ego Slim Shady came while he was on the toilet. “Boom, the name hit me, and right away I thought of all these words to rhyme with it. So I wiped my a**, got up off the pot, and, ah, went and called everybody I knew.” 

He Can Cook

Before he hit the big time, Eminem used to work in a Michigan grill as a cook for a measly $5.50 an hour. At least, he did until he got fired right before his baby daughter’s first birthday. “That was the worst time ever, dog. It was, like, five days before Christmas, which is Hailie’s birthday. I had, like, forty dollars to get her something. I wrote “Rock Bottom” right after that.”

He Dropped Out of School

Eminem explains why he dropped out of school. “I was a smart kid, but I hated school. I failed ninth grade three times. I just wanted to rap. I’d go to friends’ houses and rap, or I’d stay in my room all day, standing by the mirror and lip-syncing songs, trying on different clothes, trying to look cool. I knew every song by LL [Cool J] and Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys.”

15 Best Exercises You Can Do At Home

Mountain Climbers

The Mountain Climber is another great cardio work out that will also strengthen your legs and core. From a push up position left one leg up toward your chest and plant it on the floor as if you were about to begin a race, then quickly switch to the other leg. Continue these motions as fast as you can for about a minute between sets of other exercises for maximum calorie burn.

Supermans

Downward Facing Dog

The Downward Facing Dog is great for stretching your upper body and lower body at the same time.

Garbage Cans

Not to mention cans they can get cut on or get their head stuck in or other small objects they can choke on. So be sure all garbage cans have secure lids that pets can’t get into because the smell of all that lovely garbage is all too tempting for most animals!

Rawhide Dog Chews

15 Secret Things That Turn Women On

Turning Off Your Cell 

Most people have a hard time going more than 10 or 15 minutes without checking their cell phone. Show your woman she is the most important thing in your life by turning off your cell phone at the beginning of a date. She will be super turned on by knowing that all you need in your life for the next few hours is her.

The Color Red

The color red subconsciously gets both sexes all hot and bothered, women included.

So don’t be afraid to throw on a red shirt the next time you go out on a hot date. It’ll make it even hotter!

Doing Chores

When men help with the chores or cook a meal, that can be a huge turn on for women. The biggest part of this is when they do it willingly and graciously, with a smile, because they truly want to help or feel like it is their equal responsibility, too. Nothing turns a woman on more than feeling appreciated. No woman is going to be turned on if you do the chore but complain about it the whole way through the process.

15 Simple Tips to Make Your Phone Run Faster

Shut Down Apps

As we use our phones throughout the day, we can leave many apps open in the background as we are multitasking. But this can quickly begin to bog down the phone’s limited processing power. Get in the habit of checking for apps that you are no longer using and shutting them down and your phone will run much faster!

Delete Emails and Texts

Keeping too many emails and texts saved to your phone can really slow it down, so go through and delete any unneeded messages. If there are some that you really need, save them to your phone’s mass memory or download them to your computer.

Remove Unneeded Apps

Speed up your phone by removing any unneeded apps, such as ones that came pre-installed on your phone that you never used or ones that you just don’t use anymore. This can also free up precious space that’s cluttering up your memory.

Animated Wallpaper and Screensaver

Sure, animated wallpapers and screensavers can look really cool on your phone, but if your number one priority is for your phone to run fast and smooth, skip them and opt for something more simple. They can also eat up your battery power as well.
