According to Glamour Mag - if guys had their way here are three classic things that would HAPPEN a less. . .
#1.) GETTING READY. Men appreciate the fact that women take the time to put on make-up, do their hair, and look good. But if guys absolutely HAVE to, they can get ready in five minutes. --So an hour in front of a mirror is hard to understand, especially when you're running late, and you have reservations.
#2.) GOSSIPING. Most guys just don't enjoy gossip the way women do. And it might even stress them out. Because when you tell a guy something scandalous about your friend, it's like forcing him to keep a secret for you.
#3.) SECOND-GUESSING THINGS. Don’t read between the lines – believe it or not, men are not that complicated. BUT Ladies we often complicate things unnecessarily. The truth is, unless a guy's lying or trying to be manipulative, Guys usually just say what they're thinking. And they get annoyed when women try to dissect everything

Q. According to a new study by researchers from the University of California at San Diego, Harvard University and Brown University - If you have friends that do this, you are 147% more likely to do this.
It seems to show that divorce can be CONTAGEOUS. Here are their big findings . . .
--When a couple gets divorced, it makes all the couples around them more likely to get divorced. And not just close friends and family . . . people with TWO degrees of separation . . --Someone with a divorced sibling is 22% more likely to get divorced than someone whose siblings are all happily married.
--Someone with a divorced friend is 147% more likely to get divorced than someone whose friends are all happily married.
--And someone with a divorced co-worker is 55% more likely to get divorced than someone who works with happily married people.
--According to the researchers, there are a lot of reasons why divorce is contagious. First of all, people start warming up to the idea of divorce when they see someone they know actually pull the trigger. --And when someone you regularly talk to gets divorced and confides in you, you start learning about the benefits and drawbacks of divorce. And as the researchers found out, people in shaky marriages are surprised at just how many benefits they see.
Q: American's consume 25-billion of these salty delights a year. What are they?
Cucumber pickle factories usually ferment cucumbers in large outdoor vats of salt brine. Surprisingly, these vats have no cover, and are wide open to falling bird droppings, insects, and other airborne objects. But according to Jim Cook, a food scientist with the Minnesota-based pickle manufacturer Gedney, tanks are left open for an important reason: The sun’s ultraviolet and infrared rays prevent yeast and mold growth on the brine surface—potentially a much more serious problem than bird droppings. YUCK!

Q. Statistically this is the most dangerous job in America?
A: President of the USA! 9% have been assassinated
New statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor reveal the industry with the highest fatality rate last year: Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting. The death rate for miners is also high, along with workers in transportation and warehousing industries and construction.
But the government data doesn’t expose what is, historically, the most dangerous job in America: President of the United States. There have been four Presidents assassinated while in office, which puts the death rate for the job at a whopping 9 percent.
Now imagine if a different job, like coal mining, had a fatality rate of 9 percent. There would be public outcry at lack of safety measures. OSHA would be on the scene every day. There would be a Congressional panel to investigate the situation.

The Bay Area-based environmental nonprofit, tested nearly 400 samples from 150 branded products marketed to children, including apple juice, grape juice, packaged pears and peaches (including baby food), and fruit cocktail mixes.

Days before their wedding, the couple was looking at old family photos when Donna came across a picture of herself as a child on vacation at Disney and showed it to her fiancé.
But Alex was more interested in the man walking in the background behind Donna’s smiling family and the character Mr. Smee from Disney's "Peter Pan."
Alex recognized the man in the background because it was his father, who was pushing a stroller during their own family trip to Disney.
Decades before they met as adults, the couple had crossed paths at Disney as kids.
“Just to be in the same picture with my wife when we were basically toddlers, it’s unbelievable,” Alex Voutsinas said.
The encounter is more unbelievable because the two families lived countries apart. At the time the photo was taken, Donna's family was living in Florida and Alex's family called Montreal home.
“I was glad he proposed before the picture,” Donna said, “because I know that it’s because he loves me and not because he thought it was meant to be, it was fate.”

Q: What incredibly successful website was originally Cadabra.com?
Founder Jeff Bezos officially launched back in 1994, trading under the name "Cadabra.com" -- but Bezos later changed the name to the world's most voluminous river, the Amazon. The oft-quoted reason for the change is that "Cadabra" sounded too much like "Cadaver" -- a human corpse. But, the real reason is a little more believable... Back in the early days of the Internet, when Yahoo! Search dominated all, the first page of results were displayed in alphabetical order.
Q: 239 of these are installed per day worldwide. the first one was installed in London in 1967.
