I've been binge-watching bad TV for a year.  And you're telling me other people have actually been LEARNING stuff?  Seven in 10 Americans say they've read more and learned more during the pandemic, and feel smarter because of it. The poll looked at various ways we've changed.  Here are a few more quick stats . . . 86% of us feel the pandemic has changed our personality in one way or another. 38% feel more open to trying new things.  And seven in 10 have added a "trendy" hobby.  The top "cool" hobbies we've added include at-home workouts, baking bread, and [...]

By |2021-05-10T07:26:54-05:00May 10th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

It's an incredibly important moment in every man's life when he realizes he's NOT the master of seduction he thought he was.  Maybe we can spark a few of those epiphanies today. Women on Reddit are sharing the things that guys do that aren't nearly as attractive as those guys THINK they are.  And here are some of the best ones . . . Nudity.  Male nudity.  Everything related to male nudity.  Pictures of male nudity.  Male nudity in person.  All male nudity.  Now and forever. Talking bad about other guys to make yourself seem better . . . or talking [...]

Things I’ve Noticed

By |2021-05-10T07:22:20-05:00May 10th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

No matter how much you prepare for the day, nothing matter until you start it. Turns out if you make the right amount of food, you don't have as many leftovers. The 'Spring Forward' thing Daylight Saving Time would be a lot more popular if we moved the clocks ahead at 2PM on Monday. I didn't mow my lawn this weekend and I feel as if I'm already silently being judged by neighbors. It kinda makes sense that the target audience for fidget spinners lost interest in them so quickly. You can hand out sugar all your life, the wrong person [...]

Top Gifts Moms Want for Mother’s Day This Year

By |2021-05-06T07:59:07-05:00May 6th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

If you're still shopping for Mother's Day, time is running out.  But this might help if you need something last-minute.  Someone polled over 2,000 moms and asked them what they'd actually ENJOY getting as a gift.  Here are the top ten . . . A card.  43% of moms said they'd love to get one.  That doesn't mean they'll be thrilled with JUST a card.  But in general, moms do like getting them. Flowers. Doing something with the family.  Like dinner, or going somewhere outdoors. A keepsake.  So something sentimental, like a framed photo that's engraved. Chocolate. Something homemade.  Especially moms [...]

 Today is Cinco de Mayo

By |2021-05-05T08:04:53-05:00May 5th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

Today is Cinco de Mayo . . . and it's really the first party holiday since huge numbers of people got the vaccine.  So I'm thinking LOTS of people are going to want to live it up today . . . even if they don't know WHY they're living it up. A survey just asked people what Cinco de Mayo is actually about.  And only 10% of people knew the correct answer:  Celebrating a major Mexican battle win.  The victory was over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. 39% of people thought Cinco de Mayo was [...]

Print The Type of French Fry Each State Is Oddly Obsessed With

By |2021-05-04T08:02:07-05:00May 4th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

Is there a WRONG way to fry potatoes?  Maybe not, but we do have our preferences.  Someone looked at Google Trends and found the type of French fry each state is oddly obsessed with.  And there's a TIE for first place . . . Waffle fries got 12 states.  (Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia.) Cheese fries also got 12 states.  I guess shape doesn't matter as long as there's cheese on there.  (Alabama, California, Colorado, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and Texas.) Tater tots are [...]

By |2021-04-30T07:52:07-05:00April 30th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

Today is National Honesty Day.  And we're gonna celebrate it the right way:  With a survey where clearly a ton of people lied.  The survey asked people how often they tell lies. And the top answer is . . . NEVER.  27% of people say they never lie.  That is a lie. 18% of people say they lie once a year or less.  That's also a lie.  And another 18% say they lie a couple of times a month. On the other end of things, 6% of people say they tell around one lie a day, and 6% say they tell [...]
