Ten years ago, the idea of downloading apps was brand new. Now making those apps is the most lucrative thing you can do with your time.
CNN/Money just released their annual list of the best jobs in America for 2017, and the number one career right now is mobile app developer.
The average app developer makes $97,000 a year . . . there are a ton of open jobs for you to snatch up . . . it’s low stress . . . and you can usually work from home.
The top five jobs right now are:
- Mobile app developer.
- Risk management director . . . they help make plans for either communities or companies in case a disaster happens, and also run the clean up and rebuilding if it does.
- Landman . . . that’s someone who makes deals between oil companies and people who own the land that has natural resources under it.
- Product analyst . . . that’s someone who studies products and figures out how to improve them.
- Info assurance analyst . . . they figure out ways to protect companies’ data and network.
(Here are all 100 jobs on the list.)
Here’s another sign that we’re making some real progress in gender equality: Women’s VOCABULARY is now filthier than men’s.
A new study found women are slightly more likely to use the F-word than men. Back in 1990, men used it about eight times more often than women . . . so this is a huge shift.
The study also found women are 10 TIMES more likely to use the S-word than men. This is definitely the biggest sign of women’s progress that will happen today.
Do you like spicy foods or torturing yourself? Then this is for you. The spiciest tortilla chip in the WORLD is about to go on sale.
And I do mean “chip” . . . not “chips.” Because they come in a package shaped like a coffin with just ONE CHIP inside. The company making them says, quote, “That’s all anyone needs.”
They’re seasoned with the Carolina Reaper Pepper, which is in the “Guinness Book of World Records” as the hottest chili pepper on Earth. They’re going on sale for $4.99 by the end of the month at Paqui.com. Yep, five bucks for one chip.

You’ve been doing group dances since you were a kid. You started with the “Hokey Pokey” and the “Chicken Dance” . . . graduated to the “Gangnam” . . . and now you kind of have the urge to learn the Whip / Nae Nae.
And without realizing it, each of those dances is making you better at dealing with PAIN.
A new study out of Oxford University in England found that people who do group dances have higher pain tolerances than people who don’t.
Their theory is that the dances are both good physical exercise AND good bonding experiences. That makes your body release endorphins . . . like it would when you’re playing a team sport.
And endorphins have a lasting effect of making you better at dealing with pain.
In other words, dances like the Macarena or Gangnam Style might help you take a punch to the FACE. Possibly for suggesting that everyone dance to them?
Actual Letter from mom
A woman named Estella Havisham recently wrote a letter to her 13-year-old son, after he told her to stop telling him what to do. Apparently he hadn’t done his homework, but didn’t want to be treated like a kid.
And since he makes a few bucks off some YouTube channel of his, he made a comment about how “at least ONE of us is making money.” Estella is in between jobs because of health issues. So she wrote him a letter, and said she AGREED.
But it’s all over Facebook, because she said that if he wanted to be treated like an adult, she’d actually start charging him ROOM and BOARD. Which every parent has WANTED to do, but you’ve probably never tried it. Here’s the letter:
“Dear Aaron, Since you seem to have forgotten that you are only 13, and I’M the parent . . . I guess you will need to learn a lesson in independence.
“Also, as you threw in my face that you are making money now, it will be easier to buy back all the items I bought for you in the past.
“If you would like your lamp / light bulbs, or access to the internet, you will need to pay your share of costs: Rent, $430. Electricity, $116. Internet, $21. Food, $150.
“Also, you will need to empty the trash Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, as well as sweep and vacuum those days. You will need to keep your bathroom clean weekly, prepare your own meals, and clean up after yourself.
“If you fail to do so, I will charge you a $30 maid fee for every day I have to do it. If you decide you would rather be MY CHILD again, instead of roommate, we can negotiate terms. Love, Mom.”
