    Fewer Guys Born

    Earlier today we learned that men used to fight over women because the gals were so few. Well, in the future, women may get into girl-fights over men. In various countries around the world, the number of baby boys versus girls is declining. Now, there are still more guys than girls being born in most places, but in the U.S. alone, an estimated 135,000 fewer boys were born between 1970 and 2002. Scientists aren’t really sure what’s causing this, though there are many hypotheses — pollution, diet, alcohol consumption, stress, etc. One thing that’s quite fascinating about raising kids is that male babies require more energy to raise and also are less hardy than girls and tend to die more easily. Another researcher found that the number of boys born in NYC relative to the number of girls fell significantly after September 11. [Sydney Morning Herald] Keep reading »

    What People Are “Too Busy” For This Week

    Poor oranges. They’re delicious, but they can be a little messy, and for the third year in a row, orange consumption has fallen, according to a Reuters article. A survey in England showed that people are simply “too busy” to spend their time peeling the juicy fruit, preferring fruits like satsumas and tangerines, which both had increased consumption and are, apparently, quicker to consume. This seemed ridiculous, so we poked around the internet to see what else people are “too busy” to do in these hurried times. Read our top five after the jump. [Reuters] Keep reading »

    Even Prehistoric Men Fought Over Women

    Back in prehistoric times, women were scarce, so men used to fight their rivals and capture the ladies. Researchers studied 34 skeletons found in a mass grave in southwest Germany, and among all of the skeletons in the grave, none of them were local women. How can they tell where people are from if they can’t hear their accents or see their clothes, and only have bones to go on, you may ask? They study skeletons’ teeth and analyze the strontium, carbon, and oxygen isotopes, which can suggest geological origin and diet. According to the scientists, this is the first evidence suggesting men fought over mates in prehistoric times. [EurekAlert!] Keep reading »

    Poll: Should Kate Middleton Get A Job?

    Kate Middleton, Prince William’s longtime girlfriend, quit her job as an accessories buyer at the end of last year to pursue a career as photographer. But for the past three months, she has been working for her parents’ mail-order company, photographing new stock for its website. While she’s technically working as a photographer, it doesn’t seem like a real job. You might be saying, “Oh, she’s 26 years old and trying to find herself,” but that’s not what a friend of hers told the Sydney Morning Herald. “It’s an easy number for Kate and basically something to fill her days while she waits for William,” the friend said. The Queen is not happy about Kate’s joblessness, as she thinks Kate should get a real job instead of biding her time, waiting for William to propose. Is the Queen just a meddling mother-in-law, or should Kate, possibly a future princess, actually get a job? Keep reading »

    Has Bill Clinton Been A Naughty Boy Again…And Again…And Again?

    We take everything we hear on Fox News with a grain of salt, but being that they’re only reporting on a story that’s in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, we’ll give this rumor a little credence. According to an expose on the former-President in VF, Clinton has been dilly-dallying with many women since leaving office, while he’s been on the road — on the road doing what? Promoting his book? Campaigning for his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton? The article also alleges he was “running with a fast crowd” which required an “intervention”. Ruh-roh. There’s also details of an affair with actress Gina Gershon, as well as a cursory mention of a transexual, though it’s unclear in what context. Yeah, so, not starting off to be a good news week for the Clintons, huh? Keep reading »
