Hey, Girls! Who Wants To Volunteer For A Spider Study?

Scientists in Austria are looking to torture study little girls who are afraid of spiders by examining their brainwaves as they’re shown photographs of the arachnids. The University of Granz is looking for girls ages 8 through 13 for the study and hope their results will find a cure for phobias. It seems to me that having a fear of spiders is totally legit, though, because some of the poisonous ones can kill you! Instead, these scientists should study this nutcase I know who is afraid of kittens. [NPR]

A woman in Vietnam claims to have a simple way to determine if a man still has his V-card. Pham Thi Hong, a medical practitioner in Hanoi, claims that men who are virgins have small red spots on the backs of their ears that disappear once they’ve done the deed. Oooookay. I wonder if there’s a scientific reason for that. And if so, why are we just hearing about this now? Keep reading »

The 10 Juiciest Parts Of Cate And Elizabeth Edwards’ People Magazine Interview

Elizabeth Edwards is releasing her bestselling memoir Resilience in paperback and that means it’s time for a tell-all interview with People magazine.

Mother and daughter chatted with People about John Edwards‘ philandering, the divorce, his lovechild Quinn, and how Elizabeth is staying strong throughout chemo treatments for her stage-4 cancer.
