Four Reasons to Date a Guy Who Participates in Movember
It’s November . . . a.k.a. Movember . . . where guys grow mustaches for charity. So here are four great qualities of guys who participate in Movember.
- He’s a philanthropist. It’s one thing to make a cash donation to charity, but it’s another level to grow your facial hair for a month, and ask your family and friends to sponsor you to do it.
- He’s health conscious. Movember isn’t just about raising money for research into men’s health issues, it’s also about raising AWARENESS. And because of that, he’s more likely to take care of his OWN health.
- He has a sense of humor. Growing a moustache for charity means he doesn’t take himself too seriously.
- He can commit. Movember lasts a whole month, so if he can stay the course it shows has some serious staying power.
Of the five seats in a car, we all know the middle seat in the back is the worst. You’re squeezed on both sides by other people, and there’s no comfortable place to put your legs. But apparently it builds character?
A new study of more than 1,000 people found that kids who usually get stuck in the middle seat grow up to be MORE SUCCESSFUL than siblings who get to sit by the windows.
90% of middle managers say they usually sat in the middle seat . . . so did 72% of business owners, and 62% of people in upper management.
Why? The theory is that all those rough days in the car give you key business skills . . . like being adaptable, rolling with the punches, and staying level-headed in uncomfortable situations.
Have you ever seen someone let their dog lick their face like they’re making OUT? Gross, right? Well, it turns out you might be a fool for NOT doing it.
Researchers at the University of Arizona are conducting a study to see if a dog’s saliva can help with ALLERGY symptoms.
Allergies and immune diseases like asthma are more common now, and it actually might be because we’re so SANITARY . . . we’re not being exposed to as much GOOD bacteria as we used to be. But dogs are still disgusting, so they ARE.
And other studies have found that kids who grow up with dogs tend to have fewer allergies. The theory is that dogs pick up bacteria by licking things and rolling around in stuff . . . and being exposed to that bacteria helps kids build resistance.
Now, if you’re ALLERGIC to dogs, then letting one lick your face probably isn’t a good idea. But if you’re just allergic to pollen or something . . . keep Frenching your dog I guess?
Instead of carving a pumpkin LIKE A SUCKER this year, just let creepy agricultural engineering take care of things for you.
Tony Dighera is a farmer in Fillmore, California, and he figured out a way to grow pumpkins in a mold that makes them look just like Frankenstein’s monster. They’re tall, narrow, and have the monster face molded right into them.
It took him four years and $500,000 to get these pumpkins right. They’re sold out on his website right now but grocery stores around the world are importing them . . . if your grocery store has them, expect to pay at least $100 each.
Tony is working on a new mold now for pumpkins that look like a Jolly Roger-type pirate . . . those will be on sale next Halloween.
