The Five Most Common Sleep Positions and What They Say About Your Personality

These things always seem like nonsense, but according to Men’s Health, the position you sleep in at night could reveal certain things about your personality.

–Researchers surveyed 1,000 people and watched them sleep.  Here are the five most common positions, and what they mean.

 

#1.)  The Fetus Position. It’s the most popular position, and 41% of the people who were studied prefer it.  Here’s what it means:

–If you sleep on your side, people think you’re tough, but you’re actually shy and sensitive.  And it might take a while before you warm up to strangers, but once you know them you’re much more relaxed.

–There’s also one health concern:  If you sleep on your LEFT side, it can put stress on your liver, stomach, and lungs.  So sleeping on your right side is better.

#2.)  Sleeping on Your Side, But Not Curling Up. It means you’re social and easygoing.  But you also tend to trust people too much, so you’re easy to take advantage of.

#3.)  The Yearner Position. It’s when you sleep on your side with both arms out in front of you . . . kind of the way Frankenstein looks when he walks . . . and it means you’re open to new things, but also suspicious and cynical.

–It takes you a long time to make decisions.  But once you do, you don’t change your mind very easily.

#4.)  Sleeping on Your Stomach. People who sleep on their stomach with their hands above their head are good at making quick decisions . . . but sometimes that results in BAD decisions.  And they tend to take criticism personally.

#5.)  The Soldier Position. It’s when you sleep on your back with your arms out at your sides, and your legs slightly spread.  If that’s you, then according to the study you’re quiet and reserved, but you expect a lot out of yourself and others.

–And there’s also a good chance you snore, since sleeping on your back makes it harder to breathe.  You’ll sleep better . . . and so will the person next to you . . . if you flip over and sleep on your stomach.

–Plus, sleeping on your stomach is better for digestion.

Cement Injections for a Bigger Booty?? WHAT??

This is very sad the lengths people will go to get a certain look.  Hopefully others will learn from this horrific story not to mess around with what mother nature gave them.

Here’s the story from Outbreak News below.


A woman paid $700 to a Miami Gardens tranny for a butt augmentation. The yet unidentified woman was unfortunately injected with a dangerous concoction of cement, glue and tire sealant. It was then sealed with super glue.

The “cosmetic procedure” was performed not in a clinic, but at a residence in Miami Gardens.

The result, as you can imagine, was disastrous. The woman ended up with a MRSA wound site infection and a case of pneumonia.

Police arrested 30-year-old Oneal Ron Morris (pictured) for practicing medicine without a license and causing bodily harm.

This is not the first time an incident like this has happened. Usually the injected substance is caulk or industrial-grade silicone. Of course, none of these items are approved for use anywhere in the body and usually result in serious infections and sometimes death.

Be sure to TiVo, DVR, or just watch 20/20 for an interview with my good friend, Stanley Roberts, talking about the rant from this sassy driver! Watch it this Friday!  #TeamStanleyRoberts

 

 

Five Things You Should Do While You’re Single

Match.com has a list of things you should do while you’re SINGLE.  And each thing is sort of designed to help you in your NEXT relationship.  Here are the top five . . .

#1.)  TRAVEL ALONE. It helps you build self-confidence, because you have to make every decision yourself.  And learning to be more independent can help you in your next relationship, because being TOO dependant on other people can be a turn off.

#2.)  STAY OUT ALL NIGHT. Just not EVERY night.  But you have to be a LITTLE wild when you’re single, or you’ll regret it. Because once you’re with someone again, you won’t be ABLE to do whatever you want.

#3.)  LEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. So, if your ex was the one who did all the cooking and cleaning, don’t become a slob once you’re single.

#4.)  SPEND A WEEKEND WITH A MARRIED COUPLE YOUR OWN AGE. Match.com says spending 48 hours with a real couple will remind you that relationships aren’t perfect.  And then you won’t rush into a BAD one.

–And if your friends come off like some kind of perfect DREAM couple . . . don’t be fooled, and rush into another relationship even FASTER.  Because people are usually on their best behavior when they have visitors.

#5.)  STAY SINGLE FOR AT LEAST THREE MONTHS. According to Match.com, that’s how long you need to really process a break-up.  Otherwise, your next relationship won’t be any better.

–It shouldn’t really be a RULE though, because you might meet someone TOMORROW.  But the point is, if you just hop from one relationship to the next, you won’t give yourself enough time to reflect on why your last relationship failed.

Ultimate Loyalty

My sister forwarded to me this article about a moving example of the ultimate loyalty from a dog. Please read the article and watch the video below:

It’s a universal truth that dogs are man’s best friend, but they’re pretty darn loyal to their own as well. Case in point: this tear-inducing video, via the website Jezebel, showing a dog, shivering and disoriented, remaining loyally by the side of a stricken fellow canine amid the devastation of the Japanese tsunami.

You can watch the video below:

The video is a stark reminder that, as was the case when Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005, there will likely be thousands of pets orphaned or involuntarily abandoned due to the catastrophe in Japan. If you’d like to help efforts to help these animals, you can find info on doing so here.
UPDATE: CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town.
Here is an English translation of the voiceover exchange between the two reporters in the clip (translation courtesy of Toshiyuki Kitamura):

We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.


He has a collar. He must be someone’s pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.


Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.


Where?


Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.


The dog is protecting him.


Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.


I can’t watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.


Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.


Yes! Yes! He is alive.


He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.


Oh good. He’s getting up.


It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It’s just amazing that they survived through this all.

Over a million DEAD FISH?

Over a million sardines washed up dead near a California beach!  What is going on???!!  Read this article from necn.com:

Check out this massive sea of dead fish that washed up near Redondo Beach, California.

An official said there are more than a million…and are a foot deep! They believe the school of sardines were swept into the harbor by waves or the current.

The fish then used up all of the oxygen in the area, which experts believe led to the mass kill. Meanwhile, pelicans and other birds are enjoying a feeding frenzy.

Ten Strangest Requests Dentists Have Ever Heard

Here Are the Ten Strangest Requests Dentists Have Ever Heard

M~ p17ma01/11p clr/teeth

The Chicago Dental Society just released the results of a survey, where they asked hundreds of dentists to share the STRANGEST requests they’ve ever heard.  And they put together a top ten.  Check ’em out . . .

#10.) Can you pull my tooth without anesthesia?

#9.) Can you wire my mouth shut to help my diet?

#8.) Can you identify this set of dentures?  They were left in the bathroom at work.

#7.) Can I pay you to come to my office every day to floss my teeth?

#6.) Will you pull all of my teeth and give me dentures?

#5.) I just broke off my engagement.  Can you take the diamond from the ring and put it in my tooth?

#4.) Will you give me anesthesia in my lips?  I’m going to get permanent lipstick tattooed on and it will help with the pain.

#3.) Can you do an emergency cleaning so I can go to my high school reunion with a bright smile?

#2.) Can I keep the teeth you pull so I can make a necklace out of them?

#1.) Can you give my dog braces?

Hockey Coach Strips Down!

fightAfter a Hockey Ref Tackled a Player, the Assistant Coach Protested . . . by Stripping Down and Throwing His Clothes on the Ice

Hockey coaches sometimes throw stuff on the ice when they get angry, but this is ridiculous: A minor league assistant coach in Colorado flipped out when a referee tackled one of his players to keep the player from fighting.

–And in protest, the coach took off his suit jacket, his button-down, his t-shirt, and his shoes, and threw them on the ice, one by one. He got down to just his pants, then he got ejected. (–WARNING: Someone in the crowd yells “kick his ass” at :43.)

Please watch the American Idol audition clip below. This definitely brought a tear to my eye. I commend Chris for his love and dedication to his fiance. But it did get me wondering if others would do the same …

Honestly, what would YOU do in this situation? Would you stay with your fiance forever if this happened to you? If you were the person that got into the accident, would you want your fiance to stay with you? Please feel free to answer anonymously.

Your Zodiac Sign May Have Changed!

Someone sent me this article today.   I don’t know …  What do you think about this??

shutterstock_66368041-1

Astronomers have restored the original Babylonian zodiac by recalculating the dates that correspond with each sign to accommodate millennia of subtle shifts in the Earth’s axis. Prepare to have your minds blown, all you people with easily blowable minds.

Here is the zodiac as the ancient Babylonians intended it—with the dates corresponding to the times of the year that the sun is actually in each constellation’s “house”—according to the Minnesota Planetarium Society’s Parke Kunkle:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11.
Pisces: March 11-April 18.
Aries: April 18-May 13.
Taurus: May 13-June 21.
Gemini: June 21-July 20.
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10.
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16.
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30.
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23.
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.
Ophiuchus:* Nov. 29-Dec. 17.
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

* Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year.

Donate Blood

hemoglobin-levels-order-donate-blood-200X200
I have a close family friend named Joe who was involved in a freak accident six weeks ago that changed EVERYTHING about his life.  He was taken by life flight to the hospital and he remains in critical condition.  He was a busy Dad active in the lives of his 3 kids during the week and on the weekend you could find him riding his motorcycle in the country for some R & R.  In an instant, that was gone.   He has needed several pints of blood and it has become apparent to those close to him that the blood banks are experiencing a blood shortage.  Children’s Hospital is a trauma center for children who have experienced a life threatening event and they treat children in need every day.

If you live in Northern California, please support this blood drive to help Joe.  The blood drive honoring Joe is in Modesto, California on October 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church,  4212 Dale Road, Modesto, California.

If you can’t make it out the the blood drive, please take an hour this week to stop by your local Blood Centers of the Pacific or Red Cross BLOOD BANK to give.  This is something that we all can do and it’s a gift that changes lives.  For Joe and the children at Children’s Hospital and all of others that need our help, let’s give.

Justin Bieber

I know A LOT of guys hate on Justin Bieber, but I don’t care.  I think he’s really talented.  Watch this promo for his new movie.  He’s playing drums as a small child.   Most people can’t keep a beat like that as an adult!  I’m officially a J.B. fan!
