Problem: Awkward Silences.
Probable Reason: An awkward silence means an angel is passing over. Oh, you thought it was you? Naw.

Inky’s Remedy: The next time there is an awkward silence turn to the person next to you and as seriously as possible say something like the below…
- Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong. This however, isn’t that moment.
- Coincidence or angel booby trap, how do you tell?
- Where would fallen angels be without gravity?
Then slowly shake your head, and meander away. Awkward silence=Poof! Your personal interest level to others=90%.
