The Eatery app has enough self-inputted data about people’s dining habits that it can make some bold claims about where people are eating the best and worst in the world. Hint: Cheesesteaks aren’t so great for you.
1959 was a time of change. Disney released their seminal film Sleeping Beauty, Fidel Castro became the prime minister of Cuba, and President Dwight D. Eisenhower made Hawaii an official state.

I keep my phone in my pocket. This has the (un)fortunate side effect of putting the entire Internet in my pants. When I get a call, I have to do a little dance to slip the phone out of my pocket and in to my hand.
I'm one of those people who thinks its rude to answer the phone in the middle of a conversation. It's worse when it's during dinner. It's even borderline rude to just check the phone to see whose calling before slipping it away. I want to know who's calling before I go pocket-diving.
Admit it. Even though you know the other person can't see you, you still nod in agreement while talking on the phone. You gesture. You gesticulate. You communicate in a medium destined never to be communicated. That extra set of meanings dies a local, meaningless death.
We gesture because it's part of our lexicon. It's involuntary. And those gestures matter; they really do convey information.

Any girl reading this just going to roll her eyes and think, "Of course. You're a guy!" But it's not just true for me, it's true for everyone. It's true for you.
And not in that way.
At first, this claim can sound fantastic. We can talk on a cell phone while driving to work, and we can compose complex sentences while typing.
