The Geminid meteor shower is almost upon us, and you know what that means? If you said, "mesmerizing displays of firy rock shooting across the night sky," you'd only be half right. It's the perfect chance to propose a date to the woman in your life that doesn't involve any of the following: Netflix, chilling, Seamless, or, "I don't know, let me just see what my friends are doing?"
The shower is expected to peak from the 13th to the 15th of December, and should be visible all around the world. According to Gizmag, these meteors are especially slow-moving, so you've got a better shot of catching one than other meteor showers. For best viewing, try and find an open area away from city lights. And if you live smack dab in the middle of a city, you're shit out of luck, but take solace in the fact that while you may not get meteors, you do get 24 hour bodegas. So that's something.
Here at Maxim, we've dedicated ourselves tirelessly to the study of outdoor sex. So let this moment be a refresher. After you've thoroughly blown her away by asking her out on an unassailably romantic, baller date, make sure you pack the essentials. You'll want a blanket to lay underneath you for optimal outdoor comfort, and since it'll be cold, a sleeping bag won't hurt either. Also, if you get caught, you might be charged for indecent exposure and possibly face jail time. Just FYI.
Have fun you crazy kids!
