We’ve got the results of a survey here that asked people what professions they trust the LEAST . . . and man, there are SO many options, I don’t know how they stopped at just the top 10. Here are the results . . .
- Car salesmen.
- People in advertising.
- Real estate agents.
- Insurance brokers.
- Union leaders.
- Wall Street workers.
- Local and state politicians.
- National politicians.
- TV journalists.
- Newspaper journalists.
So who DO we trust? People in medicine, apparently. The three professions we have the most faith in are nurses . . . doctors . . . and pharmacists.
I thought, why not? I figured if his bomb was real, I had nothing to lose anyway.
This MIGHT just be the craziest selfie anyone’s ever taken, and that’s not an exaggeration.
A man named Seif Eldin Mustafa hijacked an EgyptAir flight from Alexandria to Cairo yesterday morning because he wanted to see his ex-wife in Cyprus. And he had a BOMB strapped around his waist.
26-year-old Ben Innes of Leeds, England was a passenger on the flight. And when the flight landed in Cyprus and swarms of cops surrounded it . . . Ben asked Seif if they could take a picture together.
Ben says, quote, “I thought, why not? I figured if his bomb was real, I had nothing to lose anyway, so I took a chance to get a closer look at it.”
Seif was down for a photo, so Ben posed next to him with a grin on his face while a flight attendant took the picture. (Even though he didn’t take the photo himself, it’s a picture he got of himself . . . so does it qualify as a selfie?)
You get a perfect look at the bomb in the photo . . . which turned out to be fake, by the way.
Seif surrendered after a few hours and he was arrested. An Egyptian official said, quote, “He’s not a terrorist, he’s an idiot.”
An 80-year-old guy named Eugene Bostick has a farm on a dead-end street in in Fort Worth, Texas. And several years ago, he noticed people were abandoning their dogs there.
So he and his brother started taking them in, and had them spayed and neutered if they weren’t already. He’s got about eight now. Then he decided to have some fun with it.
A while back, Eugene saw a guy moving rocks by cutting big plastic barrels in half . . . putting wheels on the bottom of each barrel . . . and hooking them up to a tractor, so it was like a little train with rocks in each car.
And he thought it would be a great way to get the DOGS around town too. Apparently he’s a bit of an eccentric.
He put wheels on the bottom of eight barrels, and cut holes in the tops so the dogs could sit in them.
Then he hooked them all up to his riding mower, and drove them around town . . . each dog in his own little compartment.
He says they LOVE it, and whenever they hear him hooking the barrels up to his mower, they run over and jump in.
Not surprisingly, the photos people have taken are going viral.
Over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of hype in the media about the “dad bod.” It’s basically the idea that women are cool with men letting themselves go once they’re married with kids.
Well, a new study just threw that out the window.
Researchers at Yale University just found that the key to a good marriage is . . . a man who DOESN’T let himself go.
They found that married women are much less likely to be depressed if their husband regularly works out . . . even if THEY never work out themselves. Men who exercised also were happier than men who didn’t.
For whatever reason, when women worked out, it didn’t have any effect on the happiness of a marriage.
The researchers’ theory here is that exercise has a stronger positive psychological effect on men than women. And since it makes men feel so good, that happiness rubs off on their wives.
If you’re going to put something in your passenger seat to get away with driving in the carpool lane, might as well go with something interesting. This guy definitely did . . . in the most literal way possible.
A Washington state trooper posted a photo on Twitter yesterday afternoon . . . he caught a guy driving in the carpool lane with a cardboard cutout in the passenger seat.
And the cutout was . . . The Most Interesting Man in the World, from those Dos Equis commercials.
It seems like they both got a laugh out of it . . . because of the Twitter post, and because it looks like the driver is LAUGHING in the photo . . . but he still got a $124 ticket.
