Here’s a good anecdote for JUST how little time kids today spend playing outside: A new survey found a lot of kids spend less time outside on an average day than PRISON INMATES.

One in three kids between five and 12 years old play outside for around 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the U.N. guidelines require that prisoners get at least one hour a day outdoors.

This Christmas, like every Christmas, there’s a chance your significant other is going to give you something HORRIBLE. So how are you going to react?

A new survey asked women what they do with a particularly bad gift. Here’s how they handle it . . .

  1.  33% return it immediately.
  2.  25% actually wear or use it to avoid hurting their partner’s feelings.
  3.  20% re-gift it.
  4.  And 10% sell it on eBay.

The survey also found 40% of women now pick out what they want their significant other to buy them . . . and 30% practice looking thankful in the mirror in case they have to react to a present they don’t like.

Women also named the WORST gifts they’ve ever gotten. Here’s the top 10 . . .

  1.  A chainsaw.
  2.  Nose hair trimmers.
  3.  A fishing pole.
  4.  A fossil.
  5.  Hair removal cream.
  6.  A dustpan and brush.
  7.  A sweater with an alien printed on it.
  8.  A tube and funnel to help pee outdoors.
  9.  Cellulite cream.
  10.  A cleaning wash for their lady parts.
