    The Frisky TV: Could You Date Someone With Different Political Views?

    There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.

    Quick Pic: I Spy A Unicorn!

    I’ve got good news for the 8-year-old girl/gay boy inside of all of us. Your parents may have ruined Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and maybe even where babies come from, but they can’t take away the mythical, magical, magnificent Unicorn! It lives! Granted, in captivity, but a beautiful unicorn has been prancing around a nature preserve in Italy. Its mother, who was rescued after being hit by a car, gave birth at the facility to the now 10-month old baby roe deer. While scientists claim the horn is a genetic mutation, this “Unicorn” is still proof of what seemed to be just a fabled fantasy. Here’s hoping there’s a mermaid out there too!

    A Bride Without A Dress Is Like A Desert Without Sand

    A bridal store in Charlotte, NC, went bankrupt and left a bunch of brides without wedding dresses, some just weeks away from getting married. I laughed a little bit because some of the women in the video are crying, but then I thought about how frustrating that would be — not only did they lose “the dress” that they probably spent months looking for, but some spent as much as $5,000 and don’t even have a dress to show for it. Perhaps they should make up their lost money by forgoing a dress and getting married in the nude. [CNN] Keep reading »

    Co-Ed Naked Bike Riding (Not Just A T-Shirt Slogan)

    Just a few days ago the U.K. hosted its third World Naked Bike Ride, an event to protest dependency on cars and draw awareness to the plight of riders sharing the road. The parade of barely costumed characters looks like Burning Man on wheels. With the attendance doubling to 500, there were two times the bicycles, twice the fun and of course, double the booty.

    Japanese Do Diets Right

    I hate diets. While Americans spend billions of dollars a year making themselves miserable trying to loose some extra weight, I eat cake, wear bikinis that clearly show my stretch marks, and try to keep a healthy attitude about my appearance. Sure, sometimes my muffin top gets to me, but dieting just seems like a form of self-hatred when it involves eating pre-packaged low-cal food. Yuck!

    But just like technology, Japan seems to have one up on us in the dieting category. In an article in fitness magazine, Fytte, Japanese women submitted the top 10 weight loss programs that worked for them. Much to my surprise, they actually sound fun. From #4 — Pelvis Exercises that include hula hooping — to #8 — taking a bath in scented salts for 45 minutes a day — slimming down never sounded so good! Who knows, maybe I’ll finally cave on this dieting stigma and learn to put my tummy to good use with belly dancing. [Calorie Lab]
