It’s time to find out if you’ve been doing very basic things in a STRANGE way without even realizing it.
Buzzfeed just put out a quiz to find out how “normal” people do some basic, everyday things. Here’s what they found . . .
- 48% of people sit on public toilet seats. 27% squat or hover over them, and 25% use a seat cover or put down a layer of toilet paper.
- You know how your earbuds say “L” and “R”? 91% of people follow that and put the corresponding bud in the correct ear.
- 79% of people cut their sandwiches diagonally. Only 21% cut them down the middle.
- Only 42% of people shower in the morning, the other 58% shower at night.
- 97% of people wear their watch with the face on the outside of their wrist. 3% have the face on the inside.
- And 5% of people eat pizza by starting with the crust.
Do you find it really hard to pick something to watch on Netflix? Like, there are SO many choices, but you just keep scrolling and saying things like, “Do I REALLY want to commit to start watching ‘Jessica Jones’ right now?”
According to a new study, we spend an average of 18 minutes trying to figure out what to watch on Netflix or other streaming services. We’re actually faster when we are looking for something to watch on old-fashioned TV . . . that takes us nine minutes.
BUT . . . when you add it all up, the average person spends 15 months of their LIFE trying to decide what to watch.
Johnny Depp, you messed up, son. You let one of the most beautiful women in the world get away when you broke up with AMBER HEARD. And that’s not just my opinion . . . it’s straight-up SCIENCE.
There’s a thing called “The Golden Ratio”, and it goes all the way back to ancient Greece. It’s a standard of beauty based on the ratio of Phi, which is 1.618.
It’s a little too mathemaniacal for me to understand, being a radio guy and all. But basically, it comes down to all the stuff on your face . . . your nose, mouth, eyes, eyebrows, etc . . . and the various distances between them.
Or something like that. Anyway, a British cosmetic surgeon came up with a face-mapping program that calculates just how close a person is to that Golden Ratio. They tested a bunch of celebrities, and Amber came out on top.
She’s followed, in this order, by Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Selena Gomez, Marilyn Monroe, and Jennifer Lawrence.
But the competition was fierce. The difference between Amber at #1 and Jennifer at #10 is only about two and a half percent.
They also determined who had the most attractive individual facial components. And they found that Amber has the best NOSE and CHIN.
Kate Moss has the best FOREHEAD . . . while Kim Kardashian has the best EYEBROWS. But Scarlett Johannson has the best EYES.
Emily Ratajkowski has the best LIPS, and RIHANNA has the best FACE SHAPE, even though she didn’t make the overall Top 10.

What happens when you take two of America’s favorite sources of SUGAR, and put them together? Besides, you know, DIABETES? I guess now we can find out.
There’s a new soda that’s infused with KRISPY KREME donuts.
The soda company Cheerwine teamed up with Krispy Kreme, and just released a cherry-and-donut flavor.
Unfortunately it’s only available at some Krispy Kremes and grocery stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia . . . and it’s not clear if there are any plans to take it nationwide.
On the bright side, you might not be missing TOO much if you never get to try it. It’s a great novelty, but the reviews of how it actually tastes are pretty mixed, to put it generously.
There’s a dating app called Hinge that’s like Tinder, but only matches you up with friends-of-friends on Facebook. And they just did a study to find out the best ways to start a conversation when you’re doing online dating.
Here are three results that are kind of interesting, even if you DON’T use dating apps.
1. Guys are 98% more likely to reply to ASSERTIVE messages. Women are 40% more likely to reply to FOOD-related things, like “What’s your favorite type of cake?”
2. Men are 25% LESS likely to respond if you wait more than six hours to message them after you’re matched up. But the response rate for women only drops by 5%.
3. People over 35 are more likely to respond to messages about pop culture . . . 29-to-34-year-olds like more personal messages . . . 24-to-28-year-olds respond more to lifestyle questions and things like, “What are your plans this weekend” . . . and 18-to-23-year-olds like weird questions that catch them off guard.
The survey also tested a bunch of pre-written icebreakers to see how well they’d do.
And asking the person to respond with “Two truths and a lie” had the best response rate.
It got 31% more replies than average.
