Research Suggests That More Intelligent People Drink More, And Begin Earlier In Life

Science is full of surprises, that much is true, but I can’t say that this would be one of them. The latest installment in an ongoing series of studies continues to offer increasing evidence suggesting that more intelligent children, who develop language and intellectual skills earlier than others, are more likely to drink and take drugs than their less intelligent peers.

There’s been a Lohan arrested and it isn’t Lindsay or papa Michael! Sadly, the arrest is still all too predictable: party-hardy momager Dina Lohan got busted for a DWI  in Oyster Bay, Long Island, last night. The 50-year-old former Rockette was pulled over in her BMW for driving 77mph in a 55mph zone and turned out to be drunk. Over twice the legal limit! After complaining about being injured during the arrest, Dina took this bleary-looking mug shot and was eventually picked up at jail by someone — not Lindsay. who supposedly only found out about the arrest this morning.

There are few situations when people are more quintessentially their sign than when they’ve had a few drinks. Inhibitions are gone, walls come down, restraint and shyness melt away, and suddenly we’re all just being us. And when you’re just being you, well, usually your sign becomes pretty obvious. So let’s talk about spotting each sign at a bar or cocktail party, shall we? Want to know which sign is taking a pantsless nap and which sign is professing their love to strangers? Read on to find out!

The Soapbox: In (Reluctant) Defense of Dr. Phil

I never thought I’d write an article under that title but here goes.

Earlier this week, Dr. Phil asked over Twitter: “If a girl is drunk, is it alright to have sex with her?” The Twittersphere overwhelmingly answered “No,” calling Dr. Phil a “moron,” “asshole” and “rape apologist,” among other things. I don’t doubt the possibility that Dr. Phil (or whichever lackey mans his Twitter account) may have posed that question for lecherous or self-serving reasons. Yet as a feminist, this reaction left me honestly dismayed. Were we saying that a drunk girl can never consent to sex? That sex with someone who’s been drinking is always, necessarily, rape? Sure, Dr. Phil’s a total butthead, but I don’t think we want to make the argument that drunk sex necessarily means rape, do we?

And yet this is the exact argument being made by Carmen Rios, a former college sexual assault activist, who was so “shocked and appalled” that Dr. Phil (whose real name is Phil McGraw) had asked such a question that she started a Change.org petition encouraging supporters to call on McGraw to host a show educating his viewers on assault prevention. “Lesson 101 in my courses,” says Rios, “was that sexual contact without verbal, sober, conscious consent is rape.”

But, it’s not — not legally speaking, and not in practice. Keep reading »

Wine Glass Ring Pops Make The World A Better Place

When I was a kid I was obsessed with ring pops. Obsessed. So obsessed that even when one of my rotten brothers would throw my favorite watermelon one under the couch, I would retrieve it, rinse off the dog hair, and continue licking it while watching “The Magic School Bus.” So you can imagine my ecstatic reaction upon finding out that now, as an adult, I can get a ring pop wine glass. And use it to daintily sip actual wine while watching “The Magic School Bus” on Netflix. Maybe this whole “being an adult” thing isn’t so bad after all. [Neatorama]

25 Reasons College Is Not At All Like Real Life

Ah, college. I remember the first day like it happened yesterday. The smell of new paint covering beer-stained dorm room walls. The RAs’ stale greetings in matching neon shirts and Sharpie’d name tags. Awkward, passing smiles from strange hallmates trailed by nervous parents. Hellish name games and forced social bonding. Little did I know that I was about to embark on four of the best and life-changing years of my life … none of which would prepare me for the real world. Like, at all. Don’t get me wrong, I got an amazing education and grew as a human and all that shit, but being in college is like being ensconced under some cushioned, wonderland bubble, where nothing you do affects the real world (except maybe flunking out) and your real goal is just … to be. Here are some of the good (and bad) things that only happen in those four freak years:
