If You Wanna Know If He Loves You So, It’s In His … Feet

If you want to know how someone’s really feeling about you, look down. No, not down there! All the way down. A new study (commissioned by a shoemaker, Jeffrey West, natch) claims that our feet, more so than our eyes and facial expressions, reveal what’s going on inside our heads. People are more conscious of how their face looks and thus they try to control it. After the jump, how to read feet. Keep reading »

Does Sexting Lead To Teen Car Crashes?

Did you guys know that water is wet? Yep, it’s true. Also, sexting is really popular with teens, according to an Associated Press and MTV poll. But really, there are some surprising findings here. A quarter of youngins have sent a salacious photo or video to another’s phone, and experts think sexting is related to the same reasoning that leads to high rates of teen car accidents. Sociology professor Kathleen Bogle calls it an “invincibility factor that young people feel.” Of the kids who admitted to sexting, half didn’t think of it as an infraction with serious consequences. The other half consider sexting a big problem, even though they participate. What I’d like to know is whether sexting actually causes car crashes? Like they’re so distracted by the sight of naughty images that they lose control of the wheel? [AP] Keep reading »

“Higher” Education Found At Medical Marijuana School

I just love living in California, where with a doctor’s note for anything ranging from insomnia to cancer, you theoretically could be peacefully stoned all the time. As if colleges weren’t pot-friendly enough, now there’s a new option for “higher” learning in Detroit, which is taking steps to revive their sad economy with the new Med Grow Cannabis College. Acting as a trade school for medical marijuana caregivers, 24-year-old founder Nick Tennant modeled the college after California’s Oaksterdam University, which was the country’s first cannabis college when it opened in 2007. Besides Michigan, 12 other states have legalized medical marijuana, including Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, and Maine. The five-week Med Grow curriculum costs $475 and covers cultivation and breeding, cooking tips and recipes, and how to start a care-giving business. Oh, and there’s Cannabis History 101. Michigan care-givers are only allowed a maximum of five patients, unlike California dispensaries which can provide hundreds of patients with edibles, potent strains, oils, and extracts. Which is why graduates of Oaksterdam have more options and can become lobbyists or dispensary managers as well as care-givers. So if you’re unemployed and want to go where the money is, perhaps patting on the patchouli and planting some seeds might be the way to go? [ABC News] Keep reading »

Brave New Alcohol: Vodka Pills?

It looks like I may finally have a reason to become a pill popper! Russian scientists have developed a technique that turns alcohol into powder that can be eaten or snorted or packed into a pill form. Translation: alcohol pills are coming soon to a liquor store near you! Whatever your drink of choice is, the technique can solidify all kinds of alcohol, including whiskey, vodka, wine and beer. Think about it. Take your vodka pills to the party or anxiety-provoking family gathering—pop the required dosage for buzzed but not sloppy, and skip the excessive calories, stinky breath, stupid spills, and frequent peeing. It sounds almost too good to be true. But the question on everyone’s mind? Can you also skip the hangover? I’m hoping so. Do I smell a Nobel Prize? [Neatorama] Keep reading »

Former Beauty Queen Dies After Getting A Butt Job

Solange Magnano, a former Miss Argentina, died days after having a gluteoplasty in Buenos Aires. The 38-year-old, who was the mother of twins, spent three days in critical condition after having surgery last Thursday before succumbing to a pulmonary embolism on Sunday. The liquid injected into her buttocks had entered her lungs and brains, killing her, according to one source. A close friend of Magnano’s, Roberto Piazza, observed: “A woman who had everything lost her life to have a slightly firmer behind.” According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Jennifer Lopez’s derriere is the posterior most requested by patients looking to surgically recreate a bigger, better bottom. In South America, a firm, round butt is a big deal, but it’s not worth dying for, right? [AP] Keep reading »

To Attract The Dudes, Follow The 40% Rule

A new study concludes that there is a magic number when it comes to appealing to the men folk’s reptilian brains. Men are twice as likely to be attracted to a woman baring 40 percent of her skin. Yes … our body parts are really just an equation. Bare arm, 10 percent, bare leg, 15 percent. So if you’re going out on the town cruising for dudes, you might wanna make sure you’ve done your math. Why 40 percent? The study shows that it’s just the right amount of skin to make you alluring without making a guy scared that you’re going to run off with his brother. Very interesting. I wonder if you can mix and match? Like one leg, one arm, one nipple? [Newser] Keep reading »

Compared To The World’s Tallest Model, You Are A Midget

Geez, and I thought I was tall. Check out the world’s tallest model, Eve, who stands 205 centimeters tall — nearly seven feet. She makes the model next to her look so teeny-weeny.

Woman Destroys Her Boyfriend’s XBox And Posts The Vid On YouTube


Fueling the legend of the psycho girlfriend, this lovely lady decided that, rather than breaking up with her video game-obsessed boyfriend, the way to make her life better would be to take a golf club to his Xbox, and post the footage on the internet. According to this bored blonde, this video is a warning to men so that they will pay more attention to their potentially crazy significant others, but we think men will take it as a warning to extend their electronics’ warranties and to hide their golf clubs when not in use.
