Boob Ogling Is Good For Men’s Health


There was supposedly a study done in Germany where men were instructed to refrain from looking at boobies for five years while others were encouraged to ogle for at least 10 minutes a day. The ones who boob gazed were found to have lower heart rates and lower blood pressure. While I happily support a little inconspicuous breast worship every now and then, this study has to be a joke. Are we sure this wasn’t an Onion piece that got misinterpreted by some doofuses at FOX? Who were the men who agreed to go five years without looking at boobs? Clearly they were gay, total masochists, or complete liars. [Buzzfeed]

UPDATE: And, lo and behold, this story is indeed a hoax. Apparently, it’s an internet scam that originated in 1999 and resurfaced for another go-round this week. [Business Insider] Keep reading »

12 Dating Phrases We’re Just Not That Into Anymore

Sometimes the worst part of dating is having to endure the cliche phrases that accompany it. I swear, if one more person says, “He’s just not that into you,” I’m going to jump into my oven and never come out. It was fun back in 2003 when the phrase debuted on “Sex and the City” and then became the title of a book (and then a movie!), but let’s be honest, it’s totally played out. I get it. I grasp the concept. He’s just not that into me and if he was, he would be. Next PLEASE? I beg of you single population-at-large, let’s make dating somewhat hip again so we can feel non-lame while engaging in it. After the jump, some dating phrases that we need to put the kibosh on. Add your suggestions for replacement phrases in the comments. Keep reading »

Our Bodies Are No Longer Fruit-Shaped


New research has shown that women would prefer their bodies be referred to as great works of art rather than pieces of fruit. They needed to do a study to figure that out? Really? Anyhow, Triumph, an Australian lingerie line, is embracing this revelation by re-branding our body types. Instead of shopping for under-things for your “pear shape” or “apple bottom,” you can look for your “type” according to great works of art. As in, “I wear a 34 Botticelli” or “Do you carry Matisse girdles?” or “I hope those undies come in Picasso because my butt has been looking very cubist lately.” [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

Solitude Is A Virtue

When I was 13, I started locking myself in my lair and writing angsty poetry, which caused people (especially my parents) to assume that I was a lonely, depressed, misanthropic hermit. As it turns out, I was spending some very necessary and healthy time alone. A new study at Harvard University found that spending time alone is crucial for us to have fully-developed personalities. Sufficient quality time with numero uno has been linked to improved focus, memory, creativity, mood, and even better social skills when we finally emerge from our caves. Keep reading »

Babies Don’t Belong In Overhead Bins

When traveling on a crowded airplaine, it’s a flight attendant’s duty to find storage for excess cargo … just as long as it’s not somebody’s kid. A Virgin Blue flight attendant was sacked for placing a 17-month-old baby in an overhead bin. The flight attendant claimed he was just playing peek-a-boo with baby Riley, but the child’s mother, Natalie Williamson, did not enjoy the game. Williamson cried hysterically after the flight attendant allegedly picked up Riley — who had been playing the game in the aisle with his father — and put him in the tiny compartment and closed the latch for a full 10 seconds on a flight from Fiji to Sydney. What a fun idea! Babies just love being enclosed in airtight spaces. Don’t you just want to get in some people’s heads and noodle around until you can understand what the HELL they were thinking? I smell an impending lawsuit. (Note: A few news sources claim the incident has led to an estrangement between Williamson and her husband.) [Herald Sun] Keep reading »

The World’s Youngest Grandma Is Probably Younger Than You

At 23 years old, Rifca Stanescu, from Romania, is the world’s youngest grandmother. If you’re feverishly trying to do the math in your head like I did, forget it. Here’s the breakdown. Rifca got married at age 12 and had daughter, Maria, that year. Then Maria got married at age 11 (to a 13-year-old) and gave birth to son, Lon, that same year, making Rifca a granny. God, I feel old.

Delusion Does A Happy Marriage Make

A new study conducted at the University of Buffalo found that the secret to a happy marriage is being slightly delusional about your partner. Researchers found that those who tend to idealize their beloved do better than pragmatists like myself when it comes to long-term happiness in marriage. “People are very good at changing their definitions to match how they want to see themselves or how they want to see others … Seeing a less-than-ideal partner as a reflection of one’s ideals predicted a certain level of immunity to the corrosive effects of time,’’ said head researcher, Sandra Murry. Aaahhh, so there is immunity to the corrosive effects of time on long-term love relationships — being out of touch with reality. You mean, I too have the power to control my romantic future with a glass-always-half-full kind of attitude and a pair of rose-colored spectacles that I leave on at all times? I am soooo screwed.
