A video of a scuba diver playing with a seal underwater and rubbing its stomach is making the rounds. It happened off the coast of England, and the guy posted the video last year. But it just started going viral because of how docile the seal was.
At one point, the guy let it bite down on his hand a little bit. Which was risky, since seals can do some pretty serious damage with their teeth if they want to. But it looked like it was just sort of checking him out.
Seal Some Belly Rubs
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.
