One Night Stand, Take 2: The Girl’s Perspective

You’ve heard from the boys, now hear what the girls had to say about their night.

We arranged for two couples to embark on a blind double date. These are their stories. For the lads’ side of things, check out our previous interview.

1.) Please give the date a 1-10 ranking

Hannah: I would give the date an eight—largely because that rhymes. It was fun: good conversation, and a nice excuse to drink three bottles of wine (I mean, between the four of us…) on the Thursday of Revision Week. I think ten would have required the kind of romantic spark present only between Hugh Grant and one of his somewhat homely film co-stars. A nine would have been warranted only in the particular instance of our dates having been two cripplingly awkward first years, but in fact they were 4th years with fairly average social skills, so eight it must be.

Edie: The date was a strong 8. Food at The One Under was great, got loads of wine and the boys were very charming.

2.) How was your performance?

Hannah: I was very disappointed in my performance. I have a history of achieving excellent amounts of awkwardness—I have been known to impersonate horses, instigate skinny-dipping, over share for myself, over share for my companions, trip, fall, spill, throw gin and tonics off the bar…you name it, I’ve done it. I was on terribly normal form that night, I fear.

Edie: Hannah and I were (fashionably) late but that was fine because the boys had a chance to get a pint in before we arrived. Overall, I thought I was on pretty good form; I even brought out the Mr Napkin face to break the ice. Mr. Napkin face continued to be a theme throughout.

3.) What actually happened at the date?

Hannah: Edie and I showed up fashionably (approximately nine minutes) late for the time we’d been told (6:45). The boys had been told 6:15, so were there when we arrived. Upon initial eye contact, Edie realized she was friends with one of our dates, Charlie. No icebreakers necessary (though we did them anyways, which was ironically one of the more awkward moments of the date). I had the watercress, pear, and Stilton salad, which was delish, especially since it was mostly cheese as all good salads are. Then I had chicken for my main, along with some awesome truffle fries (fab call, Edie). The complimentary bottles of wine loosened the purse strings just enough for the boys to decide to buy a third bottle, which was a very nice addition to the meal.

The pacing was spot on, with well-timed smoke breaks in between courses—the primary purpose of which was to escape, if temporarily, the judgmental stares of the old couple next to us. We discussed a variety of important topics, though the third bottle of wine may be the reason I can’t quite remember the specifics. I think a Nobel Prize was mentioned, so we must have done something to have won one at some point during the night (it was so important they rushed the decision to the very same night).

At one point, the boys headed off for the toilet together (deep bathroom chats aren’t just for girls!). We can only assume they were intimidated by our awesomeness, and needed to debrief. We also discussed mutual friends, as any good St Andrean will do during a high-pressure social situation such as this one. We quickly realized that Maxx knows my flat mate and her “good pal,” which was fodder for some good stories that I will refrain from putting in print. This was the point where Maxx told me he knew where I lived and had seen me through my bedroom window….

After dessert (I had a Knickerbocker Glory, because, well, who wouldn’t want an ice cream sundae with a fun name?) we realized we’d been there for over three hours (the boys for four) and it was Minimood time. The boys headed off to drink some cheap vodka (which I’ve decided not to take as a indictment of our company), and Edie and I returned to our respective homes to study [read: watch Netflix].

Edie: The three-course meal at the One Under pub was delicious. All four of us spent the first part of the date discussing what to get, but not in a ‘I can’t think of anything else to say’ way but rather an ‘I like food! You like food!’ kind of way. We had some good laughs, shared some stories. Charlie likened his dessert to a murder and Maxx told Hannah that he has seen her through her bedroom window. I started kicking things (see above photo). It’s so refreshing to meet such down to earth people in a town that could start to drive you mad.

4.) Are you going to see these people again?

Hannah: I think it is likely Charlie and I will meet again, given the fact that we have the lovely Edie as a mutual friend. As for Maxx, I’ve already seen him through the window of Prêt, whilst third-wheeling a date with the flat mate and aforementioned “good pal.”

Edie: I would happily hang out with these guys again (seeing as I sorta kinda maybe knew one of them before, it would be cruel to say no…). Maybe I’ll even go dancing with them the next time….

5.) Would you go on a blind date again? (What are the benefits of blind dating, what are the drawbacks, should everyone do it?)

Hannah: I would absolutely go on a blind date again. I think everyone should do it, especially if it involves a delicious three-course meal at the One Under. Now that I’ve broken the blind dating ice, I feel like a real pro. I’m ready to achieve greater awkwardness in the future (true love optional).

Edie: Definitely! But only if the other guys were as nice as Charlie and Maxx (and if Mr. Napkin face comes too!).

  26. Understanding COSC Certification and Its Importance in Watchmaking
    COSC Accreditation and its Rigorous Criteria
    Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres, or the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Agency, is the official Swiss testing agency that attests to the accuracy and precision of wristwatches. COSC certification is a mark of quality craftsmanship and trustworthiness in chronometry. Not all watch brands pursue COSC certification, such as Hublot, which instead sticks to its proprietary strict criteria with mechanisms like the UNICO calibre, reaching equivalent accuracy.

    The Science of Precision Timekeeping
    The core system of a mechanized timepiece involves the mainspring, which provides energy as it unwinds. This system, however, can be susceptible to external factors that may impact its accuracy. COSC-certified mechanisms undergo rigorous testing—over fifteen days in various circumstances (5 positions, 3 temperatures)—to ensure their durability and dependability. The tests measure:

    Mean daily rate accuracy between -4 and +6 seconds.
    Mean variation, peak variation levels, and effects of thermal changes.
    Why COSC Certification Is Important
    For watch fans and connoisseurs, a COSC-certified watch isn’t just a piece of tech but a proof to lasting excellence and precision. It represents a timepiece that:

    Offers exceptional reliability and precision.
    Provides assurance of superiority across the entire design of the watch.
    Is likely to hold its worth better, making it a wise investment.
    Well-known Timepiece Manufacturers
    Several well-known brands prioritize COSC certification for their timepieces, including Rolex, Omega, Breitling, and Longines, among others. Longines, for instance, presents collections like the Record and Spirit, which highlight COSC-certified movements equipped with cutting-edge materials like silicone equilibrium suspensions to enhance resilience and efficiency.

    Historical Background and the Development of Timepieces
    The concept of the timepiece originates back to the requirement for exact timekeeping for navigational at sea, emphasized by John Harrison’s work in the 18th cent. Since the formal foundation of COSC in 1973, the certification has become a benchmark for evaluating the accuracy of luxury watches, sustaining a tradition of superiority in horology.

    Conclusion
    Owning a COSC-certified timepiece is more than an aesthetic selection; it’s a dedication to excellence and accuracy. For those appreciating precision above all, the COSC validation provides peacefulness of thoughts, guaranteeing that each validated watch will function dependably under various conditions. Whether for personal satisfaction or as an investment decision, COSC-certified watches stand out in the world of watchmaking, carrying on a legacy of meticulous timekeeping.

  29. 로드스탁과의 레버리지 스탁: 투자 전략의 참신한 지평

    로드스탁에서 공급하는 레버리지 스탁은 주식 시장의 투자법의 한 방법으로, 높은 수익률을 목적으로 하는 투자자들에게 유혹적인 선택입니다. 레버리지 사용을 이용하는 이 방법은 투자하는 사람들이 자신의 투자금을 초과하는 금액을 투입할 수 있도록 하여, 주식 장에서 훨씬 큰 작용을 행사할 수 있는 기회를 공급합니다.

    레버리지 방식의 스탁의 원리
    레버리지 스탁은 원칙적으로 자금을 대여하여 투자하는 방식입니다. 예시를 들어, 100만 원의 투자금으로 1,000만 원 상당의 증권을 취득할 수 있는데, 이는 투자자들이 기본 자본보다 훨씬 더욱 많은 증권을 사들여, 증권 가격이 올라갈 경우 관련된 더욱 큰 수익을 얻을 수 있게 합니다. 하지만, 증권 값이 내려갈 경우에는 그 손해 또한 크게 될 수 있으므로, 레버리지 사용을 사용할 때는 신중해야 합니다.

    투자 계획과 레버리지
    레버리지는 특히 성장 잠재력이 높은 회사에 투자할 때 효과적입니다. 이러한 기업에 높은 비율을 통해 투입하면, 잘 될 경우 큰 이익을 얻을 수 있지만, 반대 경우의 경우 상당한 리스크도 감수하게 됩니다. 그러므로, 투자자들은 자신의 위험성 관리 능력과 시장 분석을 통해 통해, 어떤 회사에 얼마만큼의 자금을 투자할지 결정해야 합니다.

    레버리지 사용의 장점과 위험성
    레버리지 스탁은 상당한 이익을 제공하지만, 그만큼 높은 위험도 수반합니다. 주식 시장의 변동성은 예상이 곤란하기 때문에, 레버리지를 사용할 때는 항상 시장 추세를 면밀히 살펴보고, 손실을 최소화할 수 있는 계획을 구성해야 합니다.

    결론: 조심스러운 결정이 필수입니다
    로드스탁을 통해 제공하는 레버리지 스탁은 효과적인 투자 수단이며, 적절히 이용하면 많은 이익을 제공할 수 있습니다. 그렇지만 상당한 위험성도 고려해야 하며, 투자 선택은 필요한 사실과 신중한 고려 후에 진행되어야 합니다. 투자자 본인의 재정 상황, 리스크 감수 능력, 그리고 시장의 상황을 고려한 안정된 투자 방법이 중요합니다.
