Is there someone at work who annoys you because they talk too much? If the answer's no ... it it possible it's YOU?
1. Everyone who sits near you at work wears headphones ... Some people do it so they can concentrate. But if a LOT of people around you have headphones on, you might be the reason they can't concentrate.
2. You're always the one who starts conversations. It's a sign that people are trying to avoid talking to you, because they know you'll go on and on.
3. They look at their phone while you're talking. Which is a bad habit a lot of us seem to have these days. So if someone does it once or twice, don't sweat it.
4. You almost never answer a question in one or two sentences. Like if someone asks what time it is, and you tell a story about the great deal on your watch ... they probably don't care.
We don't want you to start boozing seven days a week ... but drinking makes you look HOTTER. And NOT because other people are wearing beer goggles. Check it out:
A new study out of the University of Bristol in England found people look more attractive after they've had one drink than when they're sober.
The researchers think it's because it relaxes you ... your pupils dilate a little bit, the muscles in your face relax, and your cheeks get a little color. And all that makes you better looking to other people.
But ... that's where the benefits end. After two drinks or more, you look LESS attractive than when you're sober. Once you hit two drinks or more, your face gets TOO relaxed and too flushed ... and you look SLOPPY.
Ever since that stupid -blue-and-gold-and-white-and-black dress hit the Internet, I've wanted to strangle whomever was responsible for bringing it into our lives. But yesterday, ELLEN took a slightly different track. She REWARDED them.
The whole thing started thanks to the impending wedding of a Scottish couple named Grace MacPhee and Keir Johnson. Grace's mother was trying to pick out something to wear for the ceremony, so she sent Grace the picture of that dress.
Immediately, they disagreed on the colors. Mom was there, so obviously she knew it was blue and black. (Which it really is.) But Grace thought it was white and gold. So she asked Keir, and he was it as blue and black, too.
They started showing the picture around, and after WEEKS of everybody arguing over the color, one of their friends posted it on Tumblr, where it went viral.
Long story short, Ellen had them all on her show yesterday, and she gave Grace and Keir a honeymoon in Grenada and $10,000. She also gave them all Ellen underwear that's half blue and black, white and gold.
Here's a strategy to file away in case you're ever pulled over with a bunch of contraband in your car, whether it's drugs, guns, human organs, black market panda bears, whatever.
54-year-old Robery Pursley of Mary Esther, Florida, was pulled over a few weeks ago for swerving. He was arrested for a DUI, and the cops started doing inventory on the stuff in the car before it was towed.
Robert KNEW there was cocaine in the car, but he was ready. According to the police report, he told the cops that everything in the car belonged to him ... quote, "except for anything illegal."
For some reason, they STILL blamed him for the cocaine ... I mean he TOLD you it wasn't his. It seems totally unfair to blame him.
He's been charged with driving under the influence, failure to drive within a single lane, and possession of cocaine.
For at least a decade now America's state fairs have done a tremendous job making insane fried food innovations. And we're about to find out what happens when their inventions go mainstream.
Taco Bell just started testing a new breakfast item ... and it's CRAZY. They're donut holes filed with a sweet, milk-flavored icing... and covered in crushed-up CAP'N CRUNCH. Cap'n Crunch berries, to be specific.
They're called Cap'n Crunch Delights, and they're being tested in Bakersfield, California. Technically they're an item of the breakfast menu ... but they're available all day long.
For now, Taco Bell is only testing them in Bakersfield. There's not word on if or when they could roll out to the rest of the country.
