The Best Baby Name Ideas for 2017

The Best Baby Name Ideas for 2017

Five Things Women Think Guys Want in Bed . . . But They Actually Don’t

Five Things Women Think Guys Want in Bed . . . But They Actually Don’t


Here are five things women THINK guys want in bed . . . but they actually DON’T.

  1.  Making a ton of noise when you “finish”. Making noise is great, but do whatever feels right to you . . . not what you think HE wants you to do. Because if it feels forced to you, chances are it’ll probably seem forced to HIM to.
  2.  Talking in a baby voice. The baby voice is bad any time, but it’s the WORST when you’re getting-it-on.
  3.  Saying his name over and over again. One or two times is hot. But if you start saying it over and over, it gets awkward.
  4.  Keeping your eyes closed. Some people aren’t big on eye-contact during sex, and that’s fine. But keeping your eyes closed the ENTIRE time makes it seem like you’re thinking about something or someone else.
  5.  Not speaking up if you don’t like something. Guys don’t necessarily want to be bossed around, but it’s even worse to keep quiet if something isn’t working.


Memorial Day Grilling Tip: To See if Your Steak Is Done, Compare It to Your Face

Memorial Day Grilling Tip: To See if Your Steak Is Done, Compare It to Your Face


If you’re grilling for Memorial Day, here’s a trick to tell whether your steak is rare, medium, or medium-well . . . by comparing it to different parts of your FACE.

1. If you like it rare. Then pushing on it with your finger should feel like pushing on the soft part of your cheek.

2. If you like it medium. It should feel like the top of your chin.

3. If you like it medium-well. It should feel harder, like your forehead.

It doesn’t say what to compare it to if you like your steak REALLY well-done. I’m not sure what part of your face is harder than your forehead . . . maybe your TEETH?

Right in the Feels… Dog rides outside Ambulance to stay with owner

Ambulance Ride Dog

This is a pretty incredible reminder of how loyal dogs are. There’s a reason we happily spend $200 trillion on dog toys and leashes and crap every single year.

An 85-year-old guy in San Angelo, Texas named J.R. Nicholson was feeling dizzy a few weeks ago, and called 911 for help. So the paramedics came, loaded him into the ambulance, and took him to the hospital.

But they didn’t realize his 35-pound beagle named Buddy didn’t want to leave J.R.’s side.

Buddy hopped onto the little side step of the ambulance without any of the paramedics noticing . . . and just sat there, riding the ambulance, as it went to the hospital.

About 20 miles into the drive, another driver flagged them down and told them there was a DOG on the side of the ambulance. They didn’t really have a choice at that point, so they loaded Buddy into the back and took him the rest of the way.

J.R. stayed one night at the hospital and was released. And Buddy stayed with him the entire time.
