The Frisky’s 20 Best Piece Of Style Advice

I’m kind of in love with Lucky‘s December 2010 issue, which is celebrating the shopping mag’s 10th anniversary by rehashing some of their best content. My favorite piece is the 100 fashion edicts that the editors live by — not dumb, lofty fashion tips like Rachel Zoe might suggest (“An elephant tusk will spice up any outfit!”), but real, practical advice. I had a serious “aha!” moment when I read the following piece of advice:

“Buy clothes that you’ll wear on a Tuesday afternoon, not a Saturday night — few people lead Saturday night lives.”

Do Not Want: Bacon-Flavored Soda

Jones’ Bacon Flavored Soda is a gastronomic experiment I don’t want to partake in. Two bottles cost $10 and come with a bag of cheddar bacon popcorn, bacon lip balm, and bacon gravy. The perfect gift for that special pig in your life. [AOL] Keep reading »

Conjoined Twin Girls Share A Brain

Four-year-old conjoined twins Tatiana and Krista Hogan are an anomaly among anomalies. Not only are they surviving conjoined twins, and not only are they attached at the head, but they actually share part of their brains, the thalamus. Almost unbelievably, Macleans.ca reports, “There is evidence that they can see through each other’s eyes and perhaps share each other’s unspoken thoughts.” The thalamus is the portion of the brain that processes and relays sensory information, and the twins have a “bridge” that runs between theirs. During tests, a neurosurgeon involved in their medical progress found that when one twin looked at an object, the brains of both twins recorded the information. These strange factors have led some to wonder — are the twins two separate people … or one? Their mother reports they have two distinct personalities, but it’s clear that with their brains intertwined, their minds may be far more complex than we can imagine. [Macleans.ca] Keep reading »

12 Reality TV Stars Who Died Unexpectedly

deaths julien hug jpg
We were sad to hear that Julien Hug, the restaurant manager and avid skydiver who competed for the love of Jillian Harris on “The Bachelorette,” was found dead on Wednesday on the side of a highway in a remote section of the San Bernardino National Forest in California. Rumor has it that he drove there to kill himself. “I am completely heartbroken for the Hug family, and my whole heart goes out to them today as they mourn a precious life that ended far too soon,” Jillian said in a statement. “It’s very difficult to find the words to express my condolences, but I will always remember Julien’s gentle demeanor and kind heart, which will be sadly missed.” [People, Radar] Sadly, he isn’t the first reality TV contestant who has died young and unexpectedly. Here are others.

Would You Rather Get Dumped Or Dump Someone?

At some point, most of us reach a point where we’ve been dumped and dumped someone. Generally, I think people tend to fall into one camp or the other. Personally, I tend to prefer to let the other person do the dumping — color me passive-aggressive! — but in a few cases I’ve done the dumping. There is only one thing to be said about getting dumped: It sucks. Doing the dumping, on the other hand, I’ve found, is a bit more of a grab bag. In a way, it’s better, because you’re the one calling the shots, and I think dumping someone tends to leave the dumper feeling less, well, victimized. On the other hand, if you’re going to end a relationship, you better be damn sure you’re sure about that. Being the dumper entails greater responsibility. So, are you more often a dumper or a dumpee? Do you think one is easier than the other? What do you think is the best way to dump someone and to get dumped — or is that like asking what’s the best way to fall on your head? Tell us, Frisky readers, in the comments. Keep reading »

“127 Hours” Leads To Faintings, Seizures, And Panic Attacks

You couldn’t pay me to go see director Danny Boyle’s new movie, “127 Hours,” which stars James Franco as a rock climber who gets trapped under a boulder and has to amputate his own arm. Apparently, the movie gets pretty gruesome—a Daily Mail reviewer called it “the most harrowing bone-breaking and amputation scene in the history of cinema.” Not that I can think of any others. But what’s truly crazy is the number of people who have passed out, vomited, or had seizures during preview screenings. Keep reading »
