We all suffer from "Face-ism"

Written by

Apparently. we all make snap judgments when the meet someone for the first time.These judgments are based on a lot of things … race, the way someone is dressed, the way they smell, their voice. Well, researchers have discovered that people also create strong first impressions on faces. That’s right. Everybody suffers from “face-ism.” It seems that people are most often drawn to faces with feminine features and wide eyes – or eyes that naturally seem cheerful.  On the other hand, faces with small eyes and tight-lipped mouths seem “introverted” and unfriendly. This is really weird because we think our judgments and choices are rational and based on important information, but the truth is that our judgments are actually based on superficial and irrelevant factors. How else can you explain trusting someone with large eyes instead of a person who squints. It just doesn’t make sense.

Why Women Live Longer Than Men

Written by

While life expectancy in the U.S. is at an all-time high, women still live longer than men. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a girl born in 2012 can expect to live to 81.2 years – which is almost five years longer than a boy baby born the same year, who’s likely live to age 76.4.

Here are some reasons why women live longer than men:

  • Girls are tougher in the womb – For some reason, boys are slower to develop physically than girls while in the womb, which means they’re more likely to die if they are preemies due to underdeveloped lung or brain development.
                
  • Women are less likely to be daredevils – There are a lot more YouTube videos of boys skateboarding off their roofs into swimming pools than girls trying it.
               
  • Women have stronger social networks – Most men tend to hold their stress and worries in, while women tend to reach out and talk to others. So, guys stress out and die young.
               
  • Women take better care of their health – Men are 24 percent less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year and are 22 percent more likely to skip out on cholesterol testing. Guys don’t like doctors … and this takes its toll on their health. (FoxNews)

Things That are No Longer Fun after age 25 (or so)

Written by

Your early 20s are the years to go out, tequila shots, make mistakes, and wake up the next day with go-get-em attitude, ready to do it all again tonight.

Yeah, well, that's all over now, Here’s a list of things that just aren’t fun anymore after you turn 25.

 1. Shots. What’s that thing where you make the poor decision to do something that you used to be able to handle fine just to prove you can still handle it, and then next thing you know you’re puking in a cab? Oh right, shots. 

2. Talking on the phone. When you and your high school best friend went to college, it was fun having the weekly two-hour phone call to share each other's #NewExperiences. Now it’s just like, fuck you, text me, why must I use my voice. 

3. Staying out late. I’m still young! I’m still young! I’m still y— And I’m asleep at the bar.Yeah, having got up early for that job of mine sure is a pain!

4. Eating hedonistically. Because pizza every day is and a greasy diet did not feel like death. But now you have an old(er) person’s digestive system and metabolism. Some late-twentysomethings still have iron stomachs, and power to them, Mac and cheese boxed dinners and Gatorade dinners don’t feel like they used to.

5. Complaining about your parents. Your parents, or at least one of your parents, is awesome. You did not know this until you realized recently that you are turning into your mom or dad,  and it’s actually kind of great.
