If you asked any average 17 year old what the name of that online streaming service that they watch their favorite shows on is called, there’s a decent chance some of them would say “Netflix and chill”. That’s how much the meme has soaked into the culture.
Well finally somebody took the viral term to the real life brick and mortar of Netflix in Los Gatos, California according to the Verge.
From the Verge:
“While not the official Netflix headquarters sign, the sign appears to be located near the company’s main building just south of San Jose. Reddit user nicktrvs, who spotted the sign three days ago, reported that it was painted over within a few hours.”

What do you think? Should Netflix just change its name already to embrace its cuddling side?

Approximately 62 percent of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day every year, and it’s safe to say most of them are going out to dinner…snooze!
Restaurants will be crammed with hundreds of grumpy couples and overwhelmed waiters collectively wishing the night would just be over already. Consider these much more creative ways to show your S.O. you care on February 14th.
- Painted Love
Make love AND art with the Love is Art Kit. The kit provides couples everything they need to craft a one-of-a-kind abstract painting, while being intimate with one another. Rolling around in paint isn’t only sexy, but a great bonding experience without ever stepping foot outside of the house.
- What’s Cooking Good Looking?
Avoiding restaurants but still want to eat? Don’t blame you. Luckily there’s a more unique way to grub with your lover and learn some valuable skills while you’re at it. Find a local spot that offers cooking classes like Sur La Table and cook up some romance together. Extra points if the class focuses on aphrodisiacs!
- Plan A Staycation
Vacations aren’t cheap, so plan a Staycation with the beau in your favorite nearby city and get away from it all without having to go very far. Order room service, throw on those white fluffy robes, and take advantage of all of the hotel amenities the next day.
- Brew Up Some Romance
Bonding over some brewskis should be a no brainer for some. Local breweries offer tours, tasting, and events perfect for beer loving duos to sip on some of the local flavors their city has to offer.
- Let’s Get Physical
They say couples that sweat together, stay together, and if that’s true it might be worth a shot to do something physical on V-day with your significant other. Consider something that builds trust like rock climbing, relaxing like kayaking or competitive like shooting some hoops at your local court to score big with your one true love.

What Do You Think?
Via Rise Miami News:
File this one in the “not that much of a shock” category.
An eagle-eyed South Florida resident happened upon this misspelled street sign in south Miami-Dade County and it is pretty funny.
Rose Reeder said that she has driven past the intersection and noticed the incorrectly spelled Eurkea Drive sign for the past few weeks. The name of the road is really Eureka Drive. (As in “we found it”).
The misspelling finally bugged Reeder enough yesterday for her to stop her car and snap a few pics of the sign. She then posted it on Facebook.“Someone did not check like they should have,” Reeder said of the oversight.
Reeder also said that a county employee saw her Facebook post and forwarded it the Public Works department.
We’ll let you know when (if) the county does anything about it.

What Do You Think?
When I studied abroad in Prague from February to June 2015, I spent a lot of time exploring parks and green spaces.
I also quickly noticed I was one of the only people walking along without some sort of dog or lover companion.
For people who don’t often make eye contact with strangers, Czech people have off-the-charts PDA.
I thought this was stunning and hilarious so I decided to take advantage of it through a photo series. Most of the photos are from Prague in the daytime, and I expanded as I traveled to other cities across Europe.
When I saw people locking lips on the street, I would snap quick selfies. I challenged myself to make sure the people in the picture didn’t know I was taking it, which was never really much of a challenge at all:
I found these two making out on the sidewalk as I was on my way to meet friends in downtown Prague.
Objects are closer than they appear.
Just about all of these were more than quick pecks – I had to have the time to notice the pair kissing, find my phone, position it and snap the picture all while they were still smooching.
I felt like pictures in bars were kind of cheap shots, but this happened at my table so I made an exception.
Not my best work. The three of us were the only ones in sight, and I was happy to keep my distance.
This one was an accomplishment. Partly because I ran four miles before I took this picture, partly because it was my only horizontal find.
In this one, it almost looks like one person sitting on a Madrid park bench. It looked that way in person too
These two were feeling the heat on a balmy June afternoon in Italy. Really, what better way to pass the time between train strikes?
Krakow, Poland, is surrounded by an outstanding green belt. These two took full advantage of it.
