Flirting is good for your health. Studies show that flirtatious people have higher white blood-cell counts, which improve both immunity and health.
There’s more than one way to do it. Scientists have discovered 52 specific “flirting signals” used by humans. The most common signal? The saucy hairflip, of course.
It’s still illegal in some cities. In Little Rock, AR, there’s a law on the books warning that engaging in lascivious banter may result in a 30-day jail term. Another outdated law in New York City decrees that men can be fined $25 for gazing suggestively at a female; a second conviction stipulates the offender don a pair of blinders whenever he goes outside (or just take his wife with him).
We’re doing it while driving. Forget trendy bars—the freeway is the newest meat market. A full 62 percent of drivers have flirted with someone in a different vehicle while commuting, and 31 percent of those flirtations resulted in a date (don't even try if you drive a Yugo).
Thanksgiving brought about the creation of T.V. Dinners
Part of the reason that Swanson started creating T.V. Dinners in 1953 was because they needed to find something to do with 260 tons of frozen turkeys that were left over from Thanksgiving. Talk about a lot of Turkey dinners!
TV in the US is full of Ghost Hunting shows where one bunch of nimrods walk around in dimly lit places equipped with night vision stuff and ghost meters. After all, about 60% of the American public believes in ghosts!
Damn, if only I'd known this a week ago I'd have a closet full of candy. It could have been 8,000,001.
"(Reuters) - Eight million Americans admit they send themselves Valentine's Day
And, switch to yellow. Colors mean what you want them to mean.
"Saudi Arabia has banned red roses ahead of Valentine's Day, forcing couples in the conservative Muslim nation to think of new ways to show their love.
The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice ordered florists and gift shop owners in the capital Riyadh to remove any items colored scarlet which is widely seen as symbolizing love."
I had to look that up.
Mosquitoes have four knife-like tools of serrated teeth that surround a pair of fine tubes — one for dripping a pain suppressor and one for sucking blood.
A common house mosquito (Culex sp.) stabs the skin with her sharp snout and saws in with her four knife tools to draw blood. She shoots in saliva laced with anesthetic (to escape notice) and an anticoagulant (to keep blood flowing). Then she sucks blood.
In 90 seconds, she sucks enough blood to nourish 100 eggs or more — and is too heavy to fly. She makes a controlled descent to a close safe spot where she squeezes in on her abdomen. Water oozes out of the blood, filtered through the abdominal wall, and forms a large drop. Light again, she takes off.
During her short adult life (two weeks to a month) she bites one to three times, says Larry Weber, naturalist and author of Spiders of the North Woods. (Males feed on nectar and plant juices.)
