Millennials are over radio, right? WRONG. In a big way. When it comes to consuming media, they spend 23% of their time with radio. That’s actually MORE than their smartphone, laptop, or iPad. And more milliennials listen to radio each week than any other generation. It’s their number one source of music. And the numbers are going UP.

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.

Tuna salad sandwich
This is the easiest $25 you’ll ever make.
There was a class-action lawsuit filed against Starkist Tuna about two-and-a-half years ago, claiming they were intentionally under-filling their cans by a few tenths of an ounce.
And they just settled the lawsuit. Even though they didn’t officially admit to anything, they’re PAYING UP.
If you bought at least one five-ounce can of Starkist tuna between February 19th, 2009 and October 31st of last year, you’re eligible for $25 . . . or $50 in tuna.
Now, odds are you don’t have any grocery store receipts to prove you bought the tuna. But that’s fine. You just have to SAY you did. Although if you lie, you could be facing perjury charges . . . but we have no idea how they’ll prove it.

The biggest lie I tell myself is: “I don’t need to write it that down, I’ll remember it.”
It’s always good to kick off a potential relationship with a giant pile of LIES.
A new survey found 61% of people admit they LIE on the first date . . . that means three out of every five times you go out with someone new, they’re not going to be totally honest with you.
The most common lie that women tell is about how old they are . . . they usually shave off three to five years. They’re also much more likely than men to lie about their NAME . . . possibly to avoid Facebook stalking or more serious stalking.
The most common lie that men tell is about how much money they make . . . on average they try to seem like they’re about 20% richer than they actually are.
So . . . when does the lying stop? 44% of people say they come clean by the third date . . . 22% wait until after they say, “I love you” . . . 9% wait until MARRIAGE . . . and 25% NEVER tell the truth until they get caught.
