Women Pick Houses The Way We Choose Men

Real estate company Coldwell Banker surveyed more than 1,000 people about home-buying decisions, and discovered men and women handle it differently.

According to the survey, 70 percent of women had made up their mind about whether a home was “right” for them the day they walked into the house, while only 62 percent of men had. And men were more likely to need two or more visits to make the call on a place. I like to think this is because women know what they want and go after it. However, it could also signal that we are way more into looks and don’t consider something’s potential. This sounds an awful lot like how we judge our dates; if they don’t give a good first impression, they usually don’t get a second date. [Coldwell Banker Real Estate] Keep reading »

Female Seagulls Can Handle More

Male seagulls seem to be more vulnerable to their environment during embryonic development than females. When researchers took a seagull’s last-laid eggs and either incubated it alone or in contact with other eggs, the males hatched faster than females if they had been incubated in isolation. When they were in contact with other eggs, the males didn’t hatch as fast and they fledged (new word alert! fledging means developing wing feathers that are large enough to fly) in significantly poorer condition than females. The researchers from the University of Glasgow think that the females adjust better to different environments. Female seagulls rule. Except when they bother you at the beach.
