What Makes Women Cry?

Men may spend an average of 43 minutes a day — roughly a year of their lives — ogling women, but a new study has found that women spend six months more than that crying! Researchers found that “between birth and the age of 78 a woman will cry for more than 12,000 hours,” or roughly 16 months of her life. The study cites “hunger as a baby to falling out with a partner when older” as reasons for the tears. When I got an accidental mullet a few years back, I cried for three months straight.

Shocker: Women Eat Way Less When Dudes Are Around!

Admit it: When you go on a date with a cute guy, you don’t order a big, greasy quarter-pounder and a giant plate of fries, even if you really, really want to. A Canadian study has confirmed what we all know to be sad but true: Women eat smaller meals with fewer calories when dudes are around. Even chicks who chow down amidst both genders tend to go towards the lower end of the calorie scale. Basically, the more guys present, the fewer calories a woman consumes. Keep reading »

Confessions Of A (Maybe?) Excessive Drinker

Last night, I got drunk. (A few too many Blue Moons.) The night before that, I got drunk. (Vodka tonics.) The night before that, I got really drunk and accidentally made out with a dude two degrees skeevier than I would normally go anywhere near. (Shots followed by champagne.) The night before that, I … got drunk. (Blue Moon. Again.)

I bet you’re starting to notice a pattern here. Keep reading »

Connecticut’s “Nurse Of The Year” Not Really A Nurse. And Other Female Impostors.

Betty Lichtenstein, a 56-year-old in Connecticut, is a really great nurse. So great, in fact, that she was dubbed “Nurse of the Year” by the Connecticut Nursing Association last year. The association spent lots o’ cash setting up a celebratory dinner to bestow Lichtenstein with their top nursing honor. Only, it turns out…she wasn’t actually a nurse. Betty Trudel (her real last name) never went to nursing school and had been posing as a registered nurse for years. [Yahoo News]

I won’t lie—any time “Catch Me If You Can” is on television, you can be pretty sure I’ll be watching it. I’m fascinated by people who assume fake lives and do it so freaking convincingly that no one notices for years. So this got me thinking … are there any other women out there like Betty?

Man-Ogling, We Bet You Do It All The Time

Yesterday we reported on a survey that claims men spend 43 minutes a day, or almost a year of their lives over a lifetime, eying up the ladies. Great. Fascinating. Not that surprising. Then the study went on to say that us lady-folk stare down our male counterparts about 20 minutes each day, ogling around six different men. To that, I call that bull-s**t! See, what I’m now thinking, after digesting the facts a bit more, is that there’s no way in hell women only spend 20 minutes each day checking out men—it’s got to be at least on par, if not more, with what the men devote. We’ve all answered surveys and we’ve all been known to fib a little here and there (isn’t there a study out there that says women lie during these studies all the time or something!?), whether it was to make ourselves feel better, or to make women-kind look better. Am I right? I say it’s time to come clean on the man-ogling! Women may be more stealth about checking a guy out, and we may not hold our stares quite as long, but let’s be serious…20 minutes of each day? Come on. I’ve seen women on their lunch breaks spend their entire hour outside, pretending to eat their sandwiches or read their magazines while not-so-secretly eyeing every man that passed them by. Not in a I-want-to-jump-his-bones way (well maybe some of the time), but in a, huh-he’s-hot or ha-not-ever sort of way. So ladies, come on, spill it! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Summer Is Bad For Women’s Health

Damn, it seems like us gals just can’t catch a break! First we found out about summer on-set depression. Now a bunch of new studies are saying that summer is hazardous to women’s health in other ways. And I mean, legitimately dangerous. Sorry to be a downer, but researchers have linked the sunny season to higher levels of autoimmune diseases in women. It seems that us gals are more likely to develop these icky diseases in places where the UV intensity is high. But that’s not all. Research also claims that warm weather decreases amniotic fluid levels in pregnant chicks. This condition, known as oligohydramnios, is a lot more common in the summer because more people get dehydrated. Great, so I guess I can add “summer” to my ever-growing list of health concerns. So is summer still your favorite season? [LA Times] Keep reading »
