If we’re talking about animal milk, the steps are generally pretty easy. The milk comes out of the udders. However, when talking about something like almond milk, things get a little bit murky. Do you just squeeze the almonds really hard, and that produces a liquid? That sounds a lot harder than it should be.
In reality, it takes soaking the almonds for a period of time, then cleaning them and grinding them up. After that, press the resulting almond meal for almond milk. That’s a short explanation, anyway, we bet an almond farmer would give you a more detailed account.
Really, Just Stop Using It Altogether, Please
If you want to look your name up in Urban Dictionary, we'll make it easy for you. Every single name has at least two definitions: Someone who is the best, the purest, and most powerful person that you could ever possibly have in your life or someone that is the absolute dregs of society. We're talking about someone that could not be a worse person if they tried, and it doesn't even seem like they're trying.
An absolute, irredeemable cad of a person that deserves all the bad things that happen. There are no in-between options, though there might be more than one version of the good or bad.
Is This Not Clear to Everybody?
If you're on an elevator, there are a few unwritten rules that, let's be clear here, should probably be written. And here we go! Face the front, and help others face the front if it is within your power to do so. Do your best not to create any smells inside the cab because there's nowhere for it to go.
Finally, when the doors open, the people inside the elevator get to leave before anybody gets to enter. We almost can't believe that this isn't obvious to everybody, but we guess some people are just impatient. This should be taught in primary school.
It Takes a Little More Than That
We all know that telling someone that is upset to “calm down” is going to get us yelled at, so it's best to avoid that. However, there are some things that can actually help. Step one is to remain calm yourself. Make sure there's some space between the two of you – it can protect you and help the person relax.
Don't mirror them, as in don't act how they're acting. Stay calm and dispassionate. Show empathy for whatever the person is going through and try to understand them. Finally, and this is the oddest one, I suggest taking a walk.
Words Mean Things
The word literally has gone through a lot of changes in its lifetime. Upon its inception, it meant something that was from a book, as in literary. Within a short period of time, it changed to meaning something that is true, something that is not fake or false or overblown. For some reason, however, it's now come to mean...well, whatever.
It's used as an appendage to add weight to something. As we see from the sign the Dude is carrying, it's now something you use for emphasis. No, you are not literally dead. Unless we have some tearful family members to comfort, don't use it like that.
