Five Facts About Flirting

Here are five facts about flirting that might help this weekend.   1.  A study in 2004 found we flirt for six different reasons.  We want to hook up, we’re just having fun, we’re “exploring” to see what it would be like to date the person, we’re trying to increase intimacy, we’re trying to boost our own self-esteem, or we’re trying to manipulate the other person.   2.  Guys like being direct, but women prefer open-ended questions.  Men prefer straightforward lines like, “You’re cute.  Can I buy you a drink?”  But women like it when a guy opens with a

A Man Attacks His Father With an Ax Over How to Split a Pot Pie

There can’t be many worse feelings as a parent than almost getting ax murdered by your kid over a pot pie.  A 30-year-old guy named Kevin Blanch from Springettsbury Township, Pennsylvania and his 61-year-old father Dennis got into an argument on Sunday morning.   Kevin was upset at his mother for eating too much of the family’s pot pie, and Dennis took her side.  It escalated to the point where Kevin grabbed an AX and threw it at his dad’s NECK.  Fortunately it just cut him and didn’t, you know, lop his head off.   Kevin was arrested for attempted

If you haven’t heard, there’s a Kellogg’s restaurant in Times Square in New York where you can pay six bucks for a bowl of cereal.  And now, they’re going to let you spend way more than that to get weird with Pop-Tarts.   Kellogg’s NYC is rolling out a bunch of Pop-Tarts items, including nachos, pizza, tacos and burritos, tiramisu, and milkshakes.  They’re all made mostly out of different types of Pop-Tarts, although some other dessert ingredients sneak in too.   They’re only going to be available this week, and they’ll cost up to $12, but you CAN probably replicate

A 7-Year-Old Started a Charity That Gives “Kid-Friendly” Food to Food Banks

There’s a 7-year-old kid in Dallas named Kaden Newton, who recently started a pretty awesome charity. When he was four, he told his parents he wanted to start a company to feed the poor.  So they started helping him donate food to their local food bank, and thought he’d be satisfied.   But once he started doing it, he realized most of the food people give away isn’t stuff KIDS would like.  So this month, he launched a charity called “Mac & Cheese and Pancakes” that only donates KID-FRIENDLY food.   His parents helped him create an Amazon “wish list”

People Are Eating Oranges in the Shower to Avoid the Mess?

There’s something so masterfully LAZY about this.  Apparently, people are now eating oranges in the SHOWER, because it helps them avoid the sticky mess that comes from eating them in normal places.   And the trend is spreading because people are sharing pictures of their “shower oranges” on social media.  Of course they are.   The future #showerorange pic.twitter.com/nNQTwSNbtd — Matt Ball (@mtball07) May 21, 2015   (Buzzfeed)

Somehow, a teenager forgetting to do his chores has become international news.  There’s an 18-year-old kid named Connor Cox who’s a freshman at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania.  And a few weeks ago, he got a care package from his mom.   But when he opened it up, all he found inside was a bunch of trash.  And not just any trash.  It was the trash he was supposed to take out back when he was at home for winter break, but he forgot.   Connor posted a picture of the box of garbage on Twitter and now it’s

A Couple Met Online, and It Turned Out Their Cats Were Brothers

There’s a 44-year-old woman in northern California named Cathleen Cavin, who has an eight-year-old daughter named Cali.  They live about 45 miles north of San Francisco.   About two-and-a-half years ago, they adopted an orange-and-white kitten named Ozzie, and wanted to adopt his brother too.  But Cathleen didn’t think their landlord would let them have two cats. Cali was pretty upset about splitting them up though.  So Cathleen called the shelter back, and said she wanted to come get the other kitten too.  But by that point, someone else had taken it.   Then about eight months ago, she started

It may seem like Hollywood has lost all of its originality, but that’s not the case.  They’re coming up with ALL KINDS of creative, new ways to remake or ‘reboot’ the same old existing movies and shows.  (???)   DenOfGeek.com has a list of ‘116 Movie Remakes and Reboots Currently in the Works’, and after a few minutes of scrolling, you’d think they might have been better off just listing the movies that AREN’T being remade.   The site puts this list out every year or so, and they carry over a lot of the information, so not all of

A Guy Attacks His Waiter When a Fancy Italian Restaurant Doesn’t Have Miller Lite

I’m not sure if Miller Lite is the right beer to pair with a nice tortellini, but I’m not willing to fight someone to find out.   A 33-year-old guy named Anthony Williams was at a nice Italian restaurant in New York City earlier this month, and he tried to order a Miller Lite.  But the restaurant only serves fancier beers than that, so they didn’t have one for him.  And that made him SO angry that he grabbed his 54-year-old waiter and THREW HIM over a table.  Then he took off.   The cops quickly tracked him down, right

Having Our Phones Taken Away Gives Us the Same Symptoms as PTSD?

I’m not sure we needed another study to prove just how addicted we are to our phones, but this one sure puts that addiction into a new perspective.   A study out of Hungary just found that when people between 18 and 26 had their phones taken away, they started showing the same symptoms as people with PTSD.   That included an elevated heart rate, higher stress levels, and fidgeting and scratching, all of which went away as soon as they got their phones back, or even got their hands on ANY phone, not even their own.   (Daily Mail)
