This Grocery Store Is *So* You

World (FEE) – The problem with food is that it disappears. There’s less of it every time you eat until finally you’re hungry and there really isn’t much left. Then you have to go and buy more and the whole thing starts all over again as you eat some of it on the way home. I swear I spend half my life buying food. If I wake up energetic enough, early enough, and it’s the right season, I’ll go to the farmer’s market, but that doesn’t happen often enough to be a reliable source of food for me. Even ordering Read More

Russian ‘Romance Register’ Could Force Couples to Get Serious After One Year

Russia (Sputnik) – A new legislative proposal will enable Russians to register their relationship if they have been living together for a year, RIA Novosti reports. Relations between boyfriends and girlfriends across Russia are about to get serious, if a new proposal to force them to register their relationships becomes law. According to RIA Novosti, civil organizations in several Russian regions are campaigning for a change in the law which would compel people in a romantic relationship, who have been living together for at least one year, to register their relationship with the local authorities. “Every year, the number of unregistered marriages rises. In fact, we don’t have statistics on them, since they are not Read More

The Lazy Millennial Guide to Long-Distance Relationships

(FEE) – My grandmother was raised on a sheep station in the Outback of Australia. She didn’t see many kangaroos, but “the men” did all the time when they went out to herd the sheep at the end of the day. My grandfather was raised in Milwaukee. He didn’t see many kangaroos either, so they had that in common. During World War II, he was a soldier stationed in the Philippines for a while. She was a Red Cross nurse in Sydney. The nurses decided to put a party together for the American soldiers in town on leave. My grandfather Read More

Swedish ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ Consoles Divorcees With Money-Backs Unaimed 

Swedish ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ Consoles Divorcees With Money-Backs

Sweden (Sputnik) – Swedish hoteliers believe in love, apparently: one Swedish hotel chain is offering couples who stay there a weird refund – on the condition that they get divorced within a year of their stay. The hotel chain is so sure that a cozy hotel stay is a panacea for a tangled relationship that they are actually betting their money on it. The Countryside Hotels chain was founded in 1983 and runs around 40 hotels across Sweden. Their new scheme applies to married couples who spend the night in the same room booked under their “relationship guarantee.” Provided that they split less than 12 months hereinafter, Read More

5 Tips for the Young and Unemployed

(FEE) – Most of the career advice young people receive today is staggeringly bad. We’re told to take out large amounts of student debt (an average of 35k) to get a degree, apply for jobs at tons of different companies, and spend all our time making sure our resume has the right format. We’ve spent the last 4 years in school usually accumulating nothing but theory and developing few skills that make us competitive in the job market. I was lucky enough to avoid most of this. I left college early and never had anyone fill my head with stale Read More

Breed Bans Are Cruel and Don’t Even Work

(FEE) – me of my favorite people are dogs. Unlike some humans I could mention, a dog has never asked me to borrow money, cut me off in traffic, or used up all the toilet paper in the bathroom without the courtesy of refilling it (or at least warning me by strategically placing the empty cardboard tube on top of the toilet seat). Dogs are great. They’re enthusiastic, warm, and cuddly. They provide comfort, security, and have been shown to have extensive psychological and therapeutic effects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that, among other benefits, the health Read More

Millennials Struggling to Make Ends Meet, Some Forced to Sell Clothes to Eat

(Sputnik) – New figures show people born after 1983, also known as millennials, are more likely to have borrowed money from friends and family or sold their possessions in order to pay their bills. The survey, conducted by an international broker Norton Finance, revealed that over a third of 18-34 years old have been forced to go without food and heating as salaries have failed to increase, yet the cost of living has. Paul Stringer, managing director of Norton Finance has said that this research gives a glimpse into how millennials are living and the reasons why. “With this piece of research we wanted to take a snapshot of British finances, looking at how each Read More

Revenge is Tweet: The Arnold Mocks The Donald’s Low Ratings (VIDEO)

(Sputnik) – Actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger has posted a video online taunting US President Donald Trump, after the latter took time out from running the most powerful nation in the world to mock the former in a tweet. Responding to a new Gallup poll released earlier in the week showing Trump at an approval-rating low of 37 percent, Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, said, “Oh, Donald — the ratings are in, and you got swamped.” Schwarzenegger piled on, according to The Hill, stating, “Wow. Now you’re in the 30s? But what do you expect? I mean, when you take away after-school programs for children and Meals on Wheels Read More

Watching Porn Affects the Brain, Things Will Never Be the Same Again

(Sputnik) –  Today, with pornography only ever a few clicks away, a multitude of attitudes to sex imagery abound. Regardless of what porn aficionados have to say, Swedish researchers maintain that excessive porn consumption affects the brain. Like every other gratifying experience, watching sexual images releases high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is often referred to as the “happiness drug” and is a key ingredient in the brain’s reward system. It is known to create vivid memories and spur a strong desire to relive the same stimulation again. Neuroscientist Predrag Petrovic, an associate professor of psychiatry at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, has long studied the Read More

The Lazy Millennial Guide to Flight-Sharing

(FEE) – Flying is great, but it’s also horrible. It’s faster than walking, but it’s all just wait wait wait – wait at TSA, wait to board, wait to take off, etc. When you can drive to your destination as fast as you can fly there, something is wrong. And now that TSA is going to become even more creepy, people are starting to re-think how they travel. Is it really worth it? Isn’t there another way? If only we had ridesharing for flights on private jets and planes. Oh wait. There is. But is it a viable option? The Read More
