1015a-3 SPECIAL DAYS/WEEKS

World Goth Day(We should be playing nothing but Type O Negative and Siouxie and The Banshees all day )

 

Buy a Musical Instrument Day(you get a bass guitar, you get a stratocaster, you get a set of pearl drums)

 

Sherlock Holmes Day(So Watson in charge of buying the party favors)

 

A woman in China who drank rat urine as an aphrodisiac ended up in the hospital. [I want to know how she got the rat to pee into a cup.]

 

A survey finds eight in ten adults are intimidated by the rules for drinking wine. [There are only three rules that matter: Open wine; insert straw; drink.]

 

Traffic police in China received a big surprise after they took in a driver who had not done his annual vehicle inspection on time. Officials from the traffic department found to the driver didn’t have a license but did have a violation record that was 10 feet long — a total of 196 traffic violation.

 

1045a- USELESS ADVICE THAT TURNS OUT TO BE USEFUL _ Here are some “useless” pieces of advice Reddit users had received, only to realize that — upon implementing the advice — it was quite useful.

  • Don’t borrow trouble. You have plenty of trouble yourself, don’t go looking for more. Don’t worry about things until they happen. Don’t worry about someone else’s business. If it’s not your problem, don’t make it one. DON’T. BORROW. TROUBLE.
  • If your immediate answer isn’t a ‘yes,’ then it’s a ‘no’ (or vice versa).
  • The way someone treats you says everything about them and nothing about you.
  • Don’t think about what it costs, think about what it will cost per use.” So, for example, spending $200 on a pair of shoes you wear 200 times is a better use of your money than spending $20 on a pair of shoes you wear twice.
  • When it comes to a relationship, if it’s more work than fun it’s time to get out. Relationships will always be hard work, but we should also be able to find more happiness in them than not.
  • Holding a grudge is like letting someone live inside your head rent free.
  • Save 10 percent of yourself for yourself. With relationships, jobs, or even your family, it’s easy to give 100 percent of yourself to another person. It’s important that you keep some of yourself to you.

1115a-HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DUSTBUSTER 

The Black & Decker DustBuster vacuum was introduced to the world 45 years ago, in 1979. Over a million were sold in the first year, four times that of the traditional hand-held vacuum market.

 

1145a-FIGHT ALLERGIES BY CHANGING CLOTHES AS YOU WALK IN THE DOOR

For those of us who suffer from seasonal allergies, the spring and summer can be miserable. A few tweaks to your daily routine can keep the outdoors from invading your home. The blog Apartment Therapy offers up an interesting idea: change your clothes and shoes as soon as you enter your home. Leaving the clothes by the door prevents the transfer of allergens into other rooms. Don’t bring these clothes into the bedroom and put them in the hamper, either — that brings allergens into the bedroom and defeats the purpose.

 

115p-WORST DATES EVER

How does your worst date ever compare to these? “He took off his shoes at a steakhouse and acted like it was normal behavior.” “We pulled up to a Laundromat, and he said ‘I was wondering if you could do my laundry.’” And “He called his mom on our date and asked her for $15 because dinner was more expensive than he thought it would be.”

215p-SOULMATE PROBLEM

Sixty percent of Americans believe in the idea of a soulmate: someone who comes readymade as the “right” partner. And that’s a problem say marriage counselors. People believe that if their partner is their soulmate no work is required for a happy and lasting relationship. And that’s just not true. You’ve got to work every day at keeping your relationship healthy – even if your partner is your soulmate.

345p-HUMBLE HELPS

Having trouble getting a date? Appearing less pretentious may increase your chances. When volunteers were asked to read fake dating profiles and rate them on likeability, friendliness, fun, and likelihood of going on a date, they rated humbler profiles more favorably. In a second study, volunteers who considered their significant others to be humble were more likely to forgive them for a transgression.

415p-WOMEN CAN, MEN CAN’T

When it comes to sexing up their voice, women can and men can’t. Albright University researchers found that women were able to deliberately manipulate their voices — while counting from one to 10 — to sound more attractive. Sorry guys: When men tried to be sexier, they were rated as sounding less attractive.
