Women Aren’t Prepared To Put In Long Hours? Ha.

Ah, the age-old debate: Why don’t women make as much as men? One social researcher at the University of Melbourne says men earn 15 percent more than women because they put in more time at work. “All high achievers in all walks of life … put in long hours into their activity,” Mark Wooden said. “It’s (the pay equity gap) got a lot to do with the fact that women are not prepared to work longer hours.” Mark goes on to say that even if workplaces were family friendly, women wouldn’t pursue long-hour jobs. Having had at a job where I regularly worked until 10 p.m. and sometimes even 1 a.m. alongside other women I find this ludicrous. Maybe I’m a man. [Sydney Morning Herald] Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Protect Your Peepers With Some Sweet Shades

Catherine just bought some awesome sunglasses that she did not include in this slideshow because she didn’t want the entire universe running out and buying them — but we did include our other 10 favorites. I am personally partial to big shades that make me look like an alien, while Catherine goes for something a little edgier. But we both agree that the aqua Ray-Ban Wayfarers are friggin’ hot sauce.

Cuddle Parties: Hugs For Fugs

Funerals, talking to a member of the clergy, bumping into your ex and his new girlfriend — these are all really uncomfortable situations. But nothing gives me more heebee-jeebees than the thought of having to snuggle strangers at a Cuddle Party. Until an episode of Scott Baio is 45…and Single (see above), I had never heard of such a nightmare, er, event. Apparently it’s a group of people, who don’t know each other, dressed in pa-jam-jam’s that bond and then eventually embrace for an extended period of time. Yuck! It’s not supposed to be sexy and I can guarantee, after looking around at the peeps in a Hallmark card store, that it definitely isn’t. However, like skinny jeans, this uncomfortable trend is becoming popular across America according to a CBS News Report. I don’t want to judge the hug, it has its place — a firm hello for friends and family, a little bid of support for someone sad, etc — but it usually takes me naked, in your bed, to get a full spoon on. Yet somehow, without the aid of booze, people are still into the idea of holding on to hippies they’ve only just met. I’ve never felt so alone in all my life. Don’t touch me! Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Cristiano Ronaldo

Up until right this second, the only soccer player we could name was David Beckham. Now we can name two, because Cristiano Ronaldo, a player for Beckham’s former team, Manchester United, just came onto our radar for helping the team win their 10th Premier League title and 17th championship in all. He is damn sexy, and being that he is from Portugal, we are pretty sure he has a more attractive accent than ol’ Becks. Keep reading »

Wear Glasses When You Lie

Things have certainly changed since I was a kid. Back in elementary school, wearing glasses made you less than cool — luckily, I didn’t need them (I had a hard enough time making friends since I didn’t like pizza). These days, glasses make a statement, even to first graders. According to a study by researchers at Ohio State University, six to ten year olds think kids who wear glasses appear smarter than those who don’t. Wearing glasses also gave kids the impression that the wearer was more honest. Now I kind of wish I wore glasses. Who doesn’t want to look smart and trustworthy? [EurekAlert!] Keep reading »

Show We’ll Be Watching: Swingtown

One of the upcoming shows getting lots of buzz is Swingtown on CBS — I don’t think it has an official release date yet, but I’m psyched. The show centers around couples in the 1970′s who are into swinging — i.e. partner swapping. How did a show like this end up on CBS? It is produced by the same director behind HBO juggernauts Big Love and Rome and you would think that a show so much about, you know, sex, would be better suited for a network that allows nudity. But producer Mike Kelley says, “I actually think the shackles of having to show more explicit things every week to week to week on cable would have been far more constricting.” Uh, yeah. Whatever, we’ll be watching…and wishing for some nipple, I’m sure. [NY Times via Boinkology] Keep reading »

Look Like Lindsay Lohan!

Lindsey Lohan has just launched her line of leggings and they are H-O-T! Over the weekend, she strutted her stuff down Robertson Boulevard in LA flanked by two free models she’s paying in “trade.” So, her collection should be cheap, right? It features a black pair with a gold zipper, a metallic black stirrup, and for the LoHo on the go, a pair with quilted patent kneepads. Finally, she and her customers can comfortably give a club bathroom beej without getting their pants wet! [Hollywood Crap] Keep reading »

Jesus Knows You’re Watching Porn!

GodTube is so awesome. A sin-free alternative to YouTube, GodTube has all sorts of Christian videos, including ones that teach sinners lessons. Like this guy, who gets busted watching dirty, disgusting porn by Jesus Christ himself! Isn’t it kind of blasphemous to suggest that Jesus has a mullet? Pretty sure he’d like to be thought of as more stylish than that. [GodTube] Keep reading »
