Ever Wondered Why Popcorn Is The Default Movie Theater Snack..?? Here Is The Reason

0

In theater watching movie and no jumbo bucket of popped corn….!!!! ahhh… NO way!!! Hard to imagine.

Movie and popcorn are like an ancestral ritual which we can not let go.

Popcorn was extremely popular in mid-1800’s, especially in fairs and carnivals. Small vendors used to sell them  and make a huge profit since the snack was affordable enough for everyone to buy when the first steam-powered popcorn maker was created in 1885. Although popcorn was not at all entertained being noisily chomped at in theaters, because before talkies, literacy was necessary for movie-goers, as the theater artists wanted to focus on the well educated crowd.

Although till 1947, movies were no longer associated with “sophisticated” literate audience and everyone could enjoy them.

Early theaters were not equipped to handle popcorn machines and thus, independent vendors grabbed the opportunity and sold popcorn outside the theaters thus making a double profit from the movie goers and passerby. Soon vendors could sell popcorn inside theater lobby in exchange for a small fee. A Large mass of people bought this since this snack was budget friendly – 5 to 10 cents per jumbo packet and thus perfectly suited every pocket.

Soon theater owners began to cut out the vendors and began producing and selling the popcorn themselves for more profit since the snack was in high demand. The owners began to use several tactics for the huge sale of delicious snack, and even one of the owner lowered the price of a movie ticket in his theater in order for the food to sell.

During World War II popcorn hit the huge sale mark, as the sugar was sent off to military and there was no sugar for the production of candies and soda. Since there was no such shortage of salt or corn, the snack became a huge popularity and continues till date. It is indeed a perfect snack to munch on…!!!!

FRIENDS

We have laughed at Chandler’s wit, we have cried when Ross and Rachel broke up and we have spent our amazing ten years with them. We have grown with them.

But where are they now? Is Matt LeBlanc still our same old Joey? Where did Lisa Kudrow go? Is she still our jumpy, loving Phoebe?

Here’s what the most beloved group of friends doing now.

 Courtney Cox

FRIENDS
Our control freak Monica did critically acclaimed movie Scream and its three sequels, for which she earned good reviews. Scream is also where she met David Arquette, who she married in 1999. They separated in 2013, Courtney has a daughter with David, Coco Arquette.
Later Courtney went on to produce and star in Cougar Town, a sitcom about a 40-something-year-old divorcee and her friends. The show was a great success. She was engaged to Johnny McDaid for a while.

David Schwimmer

FRIENDS
Lover boy and dinosaur-dude saw endless divorces on the show, while in real life David has been married for just one time to Zoe Buckman.
Besides acting and directing FRIENDS, he starred in American Crime Story, Robert Kardashian, 30 Rock, Entourage and many other TV shows. He was also the giraffe’s (what was his name?) in Madagascar.
Good catching up, Ross!

Why Mahabharata Is India’s Answer To Game Of Thrones

Why Mahabharata Is India’s Answer To Game Of Thrones

“John Snow is dead”.
Internet goes crazy.

“John Snow returns”.
Internet goes crazier!

Rarely comes a phenomenon that captivates the world as eerily towards itself as GoT does. Game of
Thrones is one such exception. Arguably, the most sought after and talked about TV Series of recent
times, Game of Thrones, or GoT as it is popularly abbreviated to, has seen success like no one else. In a
country like ours too, people get so hooked, they are willing to beg, borrow and steal to make sure they
catch the episode the very day it airs – all thanks to the spoilers!

In the process of tirelessly binge watching and enjoying a foreign series, we have forgotten one peculiar aspect to it though. In a country that is so culturally equipped and historically engrossing, we do not have even a single show that can be termed as the “it” TV Series. “Why can’t any of our series get similar success” is a question that keeps popping up. Do we not have the chops to bring it on screen – albeit at a smaller scale, given our lack of funding? Do we not have the content that is both rich in fiction and high on wisdom? Do we not have the actors to live the characters on screen? I think your heads will be nodding a ‘Yes’ to all the questions above!

While GoT enjoys some exceptionally rich fictional content through the books written by George R. R.
Martin, here in India too, there is an epic left almost untouched on a visual scale as large as Game of
Thrones itself. The name that first strikes our minds in an answer to GoT, and that has been attempted
several times, is our very own- Mahabharata.

Mahabharata

Although already made in the past, the one made by the Chopras stands out on everything. Be it the writing, technicalities, performances or the dialogues, the first Mahabharata to have ever cast on our TV Sets left us wanting for more. It still does! The later entries, IMHO, could not do much justice to the gorgeous work of fiction that is the Mahabharata. While falsely promising a grandeur and visually satisfying spectacle, all those attempts fall flat in comparison to GoT.

What is even more exasperating is the fact that, unlike GoT, we do not even have to wait for some
writer to complete his/her work so that the show could be continued. We already have a collection that is all but fiction. The attributes that carry GoT to the podium it presently is are all but present already.

Mahabharata

Isn’t Mahabharata being driven by a stout story of love, hatred and betrayal? Aren’t there characters
that are all lovable (the Pandavas), a tad shady (Bhishma, Barbarika and all Gurus), grey (Karna) and hated (the Kauravas)? Isn’t there an instance of reincarnation every now and then (the whole Amba – Ambika – Ambalika and Shikhandi saga)? Aren’t the “Gods” willing to shower their deep hearted
affection to the “Good” and callous bout to the “Bad”? Isn’t there a Vidur who is much better in terms of wisdom than “the High Sparrow” shall ever be? Aren’t there pinches of magic (Ashwatthama,
Jayadratha, Krishna, Ghatotkacha and innumerable other incidents) to keep the viewers at the edge of
their seats? Aren’t there strong female characters that exemplify integrity, intellect and strength (Draupadi, Kunti)? Isn’t there a Sanjay who has the foresight to look at the warfront, miles away from it? Isn’t there a kingdom to protect? Isn’t there, well, a Throne to own?

YES! YES! and YES!

Mahabharata

We have everything GoT has and more, and that too so conveniently available and makeable. There is

nothing more enthralling and fascinating than the Mahabharata. All it needs is some creative heads and a scale that could make it believable. It so deserves to be made on a big scale and into several parts. There is barely any content that is so complicated, yet so believable at the same time! The plot twists are a plethora and the set pieces are majestic. Most importantly, Mahabharata has a much bigger fan base to begin with.

And to add cherry on top, what on Earth would I not pay to see fans scream Mahabharata Idioms all
over Social Media.

Mahabharata is our own, raring to go – and deservedly so!

Muhammad Ali- The Boxing Legend

0

I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.– Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali, one of the “only” Boxing legends to have set foot on the face of Earth, passed today. Like me, millions of his fans will mourn his demise for days, weeks and months. After all, it is a big big void that seems unfillable.

There are some things about him that make him rise above each of his contemporaries’ shoulders. It would only be a tribute to reminisce some of his legends today.

Muhammad Ali

Originally named Cassius Clay, the name Muhammad Ali was bestowed upon him by the Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad. Only 18 years old and straight out of high school, normal kids get pensive and look for career options, Ali on the other hand, goes to Rome and wins a light heavyweight Olympic Gold Medal! This was the year 1960 and about time the world started to know what force Ali will turn into.

“I don’t count my sit-ups, I only start counting when it starts hurting when I feel pain, that’s when I start counting, because that’s when it really counts.”

Like all great boxers, Ali also had a running rivalry with his fellow boxers. Joe Frazier was his favorite among others to catch on a feud. He always brought out the best him in and Ali admitted that himself.

Frazier is so ugly that when he cries, the tears turn around and go down the back of his head.”

Like they say, don’t be a boxer if you aren’t cocky!

Such was Ali’s popularity that even the gloves that he wore to beat Sonny Liston, earned him more bucks than the prize money he received from the victory itself!

Who else can recreate the magic Ali spelled when he knocked Liston down, demanding him to get up and fight back on? Well, if at all you come across someone who wants to know more about Muhammad Ali, just show him this picture and you are done!

If you dream of beating me, you’d better wake up and apologize.

R.I.P. Ali. No one can say you are at a better place now because you made this planet your home!

12 Positions You Did But That Just Do Not Work In Bed!

0

What do you call a person who doesn’t like sex? Probably, either an asexual being or (more probably) a liar. But just because you love all that action in bed, doesn’t mean everything you can think of actually hits him/her off. There are just some positions that you should keep to the minimum in bed because your guy or your lady probably hates it (but pretends very well not to).

Here are 12 positions that do not work in bed!

1. Reverse cowgirl

Reverse cowgirl is something most women hate. This is because women love intimacy and eye contact does most of it. So well, this doesn’t really float their boat.

2. Doggy style

This is seemingly the most desirable position for men but women do not prefer this simply because of one reason: it hurts. Plus, some men like to pull themselves all out and then ram all of it into her cervix, which definitely doesn’t sound pleasurable to any of us.

3. Woman on top

One of the most common positions in bed, the woman on top, is also one of the most insecure positions for women. While the guys may be worshipping her assets and having the time of their life, women mostly feel insecure about how their tummy and breasts may be looking like.

4. 69

Unanimously, one of the most disliked positions by both the genders, here we have 69. Pretty easy to figure out, no one likes getting pleasured while thinking more about the other person’s needs at the same time.

5. A very excited cowgirl

While men are very fond of the cowgirl, when the cowgirl gets overexcited and starts pounding on their delicate darling, nothing else feels as worse.

6. Missionary

Missionary is pretty boring and too vanilla for both the genders. Also, it doesn’t stimulate the woman properly. If the man’s General is on the smaller side of the spectrum, this position is not for you, dear.

0

The idea of having an arranged marriage strikes everyone at least once in a lifetime. You might not even go for an arranged marriages setup, but still, you think about it. Don’t you? And when you do, one of the first questions that pop into your head is “What kind of first night do an arranged marriage couple have?

First Night at arranged marriages

Gaining her trust is important. Marriage is a very complicated relationship yet the most beautiful. Emotional attachment is more important than Physical attachment. Apart from being physical, if both are familiar with each other then sure things will be fine. The first night is already tiresome because of all the function and stuff but still, they can talk and then sleep cuddling each other. The couple can talk or share incidences or can sleep altogether. It might be little awkward but hey, they have to spend rest of their life together.

2. The one who believes comfort is everything

first night in arranged marriages

The thing is, it takes the time to get to know your spouse before sleeping with them. So the first night is more of talking. Maybe have sex after one month of your marriage, when you’re both comfortable.

3. The one who summed it up in two sentences

first night in arranged marriages

It all depends on how much time you’ve had between the engagement and the marriage. If you have enough time to get to know each other, it won’t get awkward.

4. It Does Not Change Your Identity
