Parents Investigated For Neglect After Letting Kids Go For A Walk

A big part of the reason why I don’t want to have kids is that I think that this is probably one of the most dull times in history to be a kid. I look at those plastic playgrounds with only those diaper-looking swings, and no merry go-rounds or see-saws or legit slides (sorry, but your four-foot high plastic slide is a slide made of lies) and I feel deeply sad. I look at kids going trick-or-treating, with their parents, at three in the afternoon and I just want to give up on the world altogether.

To be perfectly frank, the idea of living amongst people raised in this manner fills me with absolute dread and despair. There is no question in my mind that these children, once adults, will be exquisitely intolerable. In 20 years we will be living in a nation of gluten-free Taylor Swifts, and that is a terrifying thought. Keep reading »

Though I am a short person, I walk mercilessly fast. I cannot deal with slow walkers, and especially teams of slow walkers that insist on spreading themselves out across the entire lane of the sidewalk. Thankfully, this Japanese guy figured out a genius way to get slow walkers to move out of the way. In Japan, anyway. If I tried this in New York I’d probably get punched in the face. [YouTube]

Orgasms: Walk This Way

According to Belgian researchers, how you walk is related to how you orgasm. They studied tapes of a controlled group of women walking on the street, where 50% percent of the group claimed they get an orgasm solely from stimulating their clitoris, while the other 50% can orgasm through intercourse without clitoral stimulation. The report is published with a lot of high-brow lingo, but basically, the “sexologists” associated a good strut, complete with sashaying hips, with the ability to orgasm with only penetration. Surprisingly enough, they were 81% accurate! Even still, these “experts” still weren’t able to pick out women who required clitoral stimulation….isn’t that the story of our lives. Something tells us this study is just a load of good guessing B.S. [Psych Central] Keep reading »

Soon, You’ll Be Able To Create Your Own Energy

You know how your feet get tired when you walk a lot? Well, all that pounding might soon be used to generate electricity. Engineers calculated the amount of energy that the 34,000 travelers who pass through the Victoria Underground station in London generate every hour, and they say it’s enough to power 6,500 light bulbs if underground generators were installed. These yet-to-be-produced generators could be put into any place that has high foot traffic, as well as on roads and beneath railroad lines. While the technology is still in its infancy, similar mini-generators were tested by the American military recently. Do you think walking in flats or heels would generate more electricity?
