Some guy who’s in crazy shape posted a video where he does handstand push-ups while balancing on a bunch of dumbbells that are stacked ten feet high. But it’s mostly a hit online because of what’s going on in the background.
He’s in the middle of a gym, and there’s an old, white-haired guy shooting free throws behind him. He takes five shots in 40 seconds, and never misses.
A video of an excited Jack Russell terrier running an obstacle course at the Crufts dog show in England is trending online.
He had a little too much energy, and bit it on one of the first obstacles he had to jump over. Then he took a ramp a little too fast and almost wiped out again.
The Oxford English Dictionary is adding a bunch of new words, and it’s a pretty good round-up this year. Here are the ten best ones . . .
1. Fuhgeddaboudit. Like how Tony Soprano would say “forget about it.”
2. ‘Merica . . . meaning America without the “A” at the beginning.
3. Bracketology. Which you hear a lot during March Madness.
4. Clickbait. And another new one is “clicktivism” . . . when you support a cause online, but don’t actually go out and DO anything.
5. Moobs . . . short for ‘man boobs.’
6. Non-apology. When you act like you’re apologizing, but don’t actually say you’re sorry.
7. Swirlie. When you dunk someone’s head in a toilet and flush it. Which seems like it could have been added 50 years ago.
8. YOLO. Which stands for “you only live once.”
9. Squee. It’s Internet slang for when something’s cute. They traced it back to an online discussion about Ewoks from 1998.
10. Kegerator. A refrigerator with a tap on the front, and a keg of beer inside.
(Here’s the full list, which includes a few R-rated entries.)

Did you finally pull the trigger and spend last night hunched over your computer creating a Match.com profile? So did everyone else. And that means today is OPEN SEASON on tail, my friends.
According to Match.com and PlentyOfFish.com, the first Sunday evening after New Year’s is ALWAYS the busiest time of the year.
Which means today, there’s more fresh meat on the online dating sites than ANY other day until next January.
The stats also say that people who decide to do online dating in January are 15% more likely to meet someone compared to starting any other month of the year.
It takes men an average of 10 weeks to get into a relationship through online dating . . . it takes women an average of eight weeks.
