It’s no secret that a sedentary lifestyle promotes obesity, but a new study by the Milken Institute in California confirms the negative impact of TVs and computers while adding a frightening statistic — for every 10 percent increase a country spends on technology, that country’s obesity rate climbs.
In a move that will probably delight and disgust convenience store shoppers at the same time, 7-11 has begun offering mashed potatoes and gravy via a vending machine. Alas, the machines aren’t available here in the US yet. As strange as it sounds, we’d probably be first on line if they were.
A loving family recently fulfilled a deceased relative’s last wish by eating at a local restaurant and lavishing the waitress with a massive $500 tip. Fortunately for us, they captured the touching moment on video.
The elderly may seem like easy targets to thieves, but as this story shows, that isn’t always the case. On Monday, an unidentified 90-year-old California woman teamed up with a good Samaritan to chase down a mugger who robbed her outside a convenience store. Is this the beginning of a new crime fighting duo?
For many parents, the idea of their children playing with toys guns is a hotly debated one. Well, a gun range in Texas has made things even more complicated by offering to host birthday parties for kids as young as eight.
Getting arrested for DUI must be bad enough, but imagine the additional embarrassment of getting busted for drunk driving on a lawnmower. That’s what happened to a 69-year-old man in Wisconsin last Saturday.
It’s been less than a week since Patricia Krentcil, the freakishly tanned New Jersey mom, was accused of letting her six-year-old daughter use a tanning bed. Since then, she’s somehow worked her way into mainstream consciousness, getting mocked on ‘SNL’ and engaging in a public battle with Snooki from ‘Jersey Shore.’
Now, Krentcil’s pop culture status reaches new heights (or lows, depending upon how you look at it) with a brand new action figure.
In what may be the most egregious example of bad babysitting ever, a pair of grandparents were arrested on Sunday for drunk driving and child endangerment after police found them towing a seven-year-old-girl in a Hot Wheels car behind their SUV. Seems like something for the ‘Jackass’ crew, not the grade-school set, doesn’t it?
We’ve pulled off some impressive examples of multitasking ourselves. (You should see us type and eat at the same time.) But this dad, who catches a foul ball during a game between the Giants and the Pirates while simultaneously holding his daughter, puts us to shame. Oh, and did we mention that he catches the ball one-handed? He must be some sort of super dad!
In one of the most poignant ways of honoring a fallen comrade we’ve ever seen, former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell recently went to a Newtown, CT, pub and offered to pay the owner enough money to buy a random person a pint of Guinness every hour for the entire day.
