I have decided to have a short comparison contest between the Back to the Future DeLorean and Doctor Who’s TARDIS. Which of these two time traveling machines is better? They’re both very similar; both have remote controls, both are stolen, both owned by some insane/senile doctor, and both are absolutely amazing.
The plan is to make it several posts long, no more than 10,000 but more than 2 where aspects are compared and it will be determined which machine bests the other. I expect this to develop over several weeks or years. (or maybe just weeks)
What this isn’t: Doctor Who vs Back to the Future. I don’t care if Doctor Who has better enemies like Weeping Angels and Back to the Future has… 50’s high school bullies—this isn’t about that. This is Shiny Car verses Blue Box.
This post shall be the base post, most likely to be rewritten and will have links to all other future posts. If you see this as a reblog and it is significantly later than May 21, 2012 I suggest you track the original post and check for updates.
What if that RP blog you follow is secretly the actual person just hiding in plain sight?
And that very well written fanfiction you have bookmarked isn’t written by a 15 year old teenage girl but rather the actual writer of the show finally getting their characters to do what the TV censors wouldn’t allow.
What many forget is that once that part is over…they need to actually buy the ring in her correct size. And let’s be serious…what guy actually knows this bit of information?
I really recommend taking time to determine the correct size. Any woman who gets an engagement ring is going to be absolutely thrilled and more than eager to put it on and show it off. How disappointing would it be if the ring was too small…or worse, if it was too big and she happened to lose it right away?
I’m not saying you have to be perfect – that’s pretty hard to do. But if you try one of the tricks below…it should help you to get it close enough that she can enjoy it until getting sized properly.
Trick #1: Use a Ring Sizer
Many websites (like Hearts On Fire) will let you download or request a ring sizing tool online. You can also call a jewelry store and ask for one to be sent to you. Once you have it, match it up with a ring from her jewelry box and determine the size. Preferably one that is worn on a ring finger, but if not, just know what finger it is from since all of her fingers are not the same size. Plus, her non-dominant hand ring finger is generally about ¼ size smaller than the other.
Trick #2: Ask a friend
There’s a good chance she has looked at rings herself or has mentioned it to a friend. Confide in her closest friend or sister (if you trust them) and ask them if they know her size or can help get it.
Trick #3: Size it on Your Hand
This is a trick I learned from my own fiancé! I only owned and wore one ring prior to my engagement ring, so one day while I had it off, he slipped it onto his own finger. He marked how far down it went on his hand, and when he went into the store they were able to measure it with their ring size to estimate my size. And guess what…it was perfect!
There are many othe
r ideas out there, so think about what works best for you before jumping right in. Once you have a good idea of size, just talk it over with the salesperson and he or she should be able to advise best from there.
Finally, once you give it to her – even if it seems like a perfect fit – take it in to get it checked as soon as possible. It will make both of you sleep a little better at night!
If you have a ring sizing tip or trick…feel free to share below.

You can also borrow one of her rings and have it sized. Be quick about it so she won’t know it’s missing.
I don’t do a lot of these review stuff, so each episode will get a sentence or two. Most of you won’t be interested. Good for you. I wouldn’t be either. Hopefully it doesn’t need mentioning that this post contains spoilers and I ask of you not to spoil the seasons I have not yet seen.
Everything Changes aka Episode One She has a gap in her front teeth. I bet the ending is more suspenseful to those who haven’t seen Doctor Who.
DayOne aka the episode where everyone gets death by snu snu Oh, so this isn’t like Doctor Who at all… Why did Netflix even bother saying “Doctor Who Spin-off”? It’s like saying The Matrix is a spinoff of the Simpsons. (YAY! Slightly aging references)
Ghost Machine aka the episode where the old crazy man killed decades ago I’m gonna be honest… I’d probably blackmail that old man too. What’s he going to do with his money? Go on a vacation??
CyberWoman aka the episode where Ianto keeps a deadly realdoll in the basement. Why is Ianto still working for them? A few months ago we fired someone for stealing, which is a few steps below almost killing us all. Were we harsh on her or something?
Small Worlds aka the episode where little fairies kill everyone I rather liked this episode. I knew of these fairies (the “real” ones) before watching the episode, it was neat that they incorporated a real life event into the show. There was also the twist ending where the good guys didn’t win. Thats a first for me. I like it.
Countrycide aka the episode where all the villagers are eaten "Because it makes me happy." I just… this is… This is the darkest show I’ve ever watched. Also, I now have legitimate reasons to hate Owen. I didn’t like him to begin with but now theres a reason. I hope he dies.
Greeks Bearing Gifts aka the episode where Tosh reads everyone’s mind. Oh hey, a Tosh heavy episode. I guess everyone needs to almost kill everyone in the name of love and it’s her turn now.
They Keep Killing Suzie aka the episode where… they keep killing Suzie, I guess… This episode only works if Suzie knew that the glove could bring her back permanently like that, but how could she have known? Then again, before this she wasn’t even in a full episode. “Gloves usually come in pairs”. Eerie. You know what goes good with metal gloves? Metal Boots. Legend of Zelda taught me that.
Random Shoes aka the episode where the ghost stalks Gwen and we’re all for it. Ok, but, no. Just no. This whole episode contradicts everything the previous episodes were establishing about death. “its all darkness—LOLNOPE—UP TO SPACE I GO”. I’d be terrified. Like my ghost caught on some space hook and the Earth was leaving me.
Out of Time aka the episode where Owen falls in love with a female pilot I liked this episode, even if Owen has this annoying tendency to be on screen for a lot of it. The moral of the story is “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Only the young adapt and the old just die or run away… for some reason.
Combat aka the episode where its like what I think “Fight Club” is all about. My one chance to see Owen die for good. Oh well, I’ve never seen Fight Club but I think this episode is based off it, plus Weevils.
Captain Jack Harkness aka the episode where Captain Jack kisses Captain Jack I found Torchwood’s Captain Jack to be a bit of a jerk in this one. Tosh is actually fearing her life is gone and she’ll have to be in America during a time where everyone hated the Japanese and he’s just like “Pssh, whatever. Been here done that. Just wait 70 years and everything will be back to normal.”
End of Days aka the episode where Captain Jack looks dumb in a field. …Meh. I didn’t like this episode as much as the others. Everything was good except where he’s just kneeling in a field… screaming. And they replay the same clip of the giant monster—I can’t tell if the monster is enjoying it, or is confused, or what. But for some reason the monster goes away. Also, are we supposed to be shipping Gwen and Jack? Because I don’t.
My ships aka No one gives a damn
Owen x Weevil Owen x Any Deadly Alien That Eats Him Jack x Jack from another time Jack x Ianto x Jack (Because Ianto seems depressed)
Again, I ask that none of you spoil anything for me, or I’ll spoil the ending to the Titanic to you. I feel bad for Rhys. I’m just waiting for that to fall apart.
