Women Say the Sexiest Job For Men Is . . . Accountant. Wait, What?

Either lots of women got really TURNED ON by their tax refunds this year or the world has become even stranger than we thought.

A new survey had women rank the SEXIEST JOBS for men. And the number one answer is . . . accountant. It got 21% of the vote.

Here are the nine sexiest jobs for men: Accountant . . . CEO . . . doctor . . . lawyer . . . construction worker . . . firefighter . . . I.T. worker . . . gardener . . . and police officer. (They did a top nine, because the 10th answer was “other.”)

The survey also found the four least sexy jobs: Garbage man . . . customer service worker . . . deliveryman . . . and postal worker.

A Guy in Dallas Makes $10,000 a Month Mailing Potatoes With Messages on Them

A Guy in Dallas Makes $10,000 a Month Mailing Potatoes With Messages on Them

Mailing Potatoes

In the Internet age, you really CAN make money doing anything . . . no matter how stupid it sounds. And hoooo boy, does this sound stupid.

There’s a 24-year-old dude in Dallas, Texas named Alex Craig, and he came up with an idea earlier this year. He’d start a business where he’d write messages on POTATOES, and mail them to people.

You just go to PotatoParcel.com, tell him what you want the message to be, and who to send the potato to. Then he writes the message with a Sharpie, puts the potato in a manila envelope, and mails it. That’s it.

He started it back in May, and posted about it on Reddit.com. The idea got some attention because it was so dumb . . . and now he’s making $10,000 a MONTH.

It costs $7.99 for a medium potato and $9.99 for a large potato. Your message can be up to 100 characters on the medium potato, and 140 on the large, and it’s sent anonymously.

Taylor Swift Scolded Apple Music for Not Paying Artists, and Apple Caved

Taylor Swift Scolded Apple Music for Not Paying Artists, and Apple Caved

Earlier this month, Apple announced Apple Music, a streaming service that would cost $9.99 a month after a three-month free trial. But during that introductory period, artists, writers, and producers would NOT be paid.

TAYLOR SWIFT didn’t like that. She announced that her new album “1989” wouldn’t be on the service, and scolded Apple in an “open letter” on her website.

She said, quote, “I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company . . . three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing.

“We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.” She said she isn’t speaking up as a, quote, “spoiled, petulant child,” but for the smaller artists who are struggling to make ends meet.

And last night, someone from Apple said they’d changed their minds . . . Tweeting, quote, “Apple Music WILL pay artists for streaming, even during customers’ free trial period. We hear you Taylor and indie artists. Love, Apple.”

(Taylor’s whole letter is on her Tumblr page, here.  It’s pretty well-written, although she seems careful not to attack Apple TOO viciously, since she apparently likes that their goal is for paid streaming.)

There’s a New Service That Will Dump Someone For You  :(

There’s a New Service That Will Dump Someone For You :(

The modern non-confrontational way to DUMP someone is with a text message. But if you’re too much of a coward to even do THAT . . . this could be your answer.

A 37-year-old woman named Kristy Mazins in Melbourne, Australia just started a new business called Sorry It’s Over, where she’ll dump someone FOR you.

You tell her why you want to end things, and she’ll contact the person to gently but firmly deliver the news. She charges around $4.50 to text or email them . . . $10 to call them . . . or $55 to sit down with them face-to-face.

Kristy says she started the business when she realized the people today in their 20s are tech savvy . . . but terrible at confrontation.

She also says she’s got a knack for breaking up with people so they aren’t devastated. Quote, “I’m quite good at mediating people’s relationships. It’s a gift.” You can see more at her website, SorryItsOver.com.au.

Sunshine at Your Wedding? For $150,000, a Company Will Destroy Any Clouds

Sunshine at Your Wedding? For $150,000, a Company Will Destroy Any Clouds

Cloud-seeding-Luxury-Villas-to-Rent-Olivers-Travels-624x467

You know you’re taking your wedding too seriously when you start paying six figures to change the WEATHER. That’s some North Korea-style supervillain stuff right there.

But it IS an option now . . . if you’ve got a ton of money to waste.

There’s a company in the U.K. called Oliver’s Travels, and they’re offering a new service where they’ll DESTROY the clouds over your wedding . . . so you can have perfect sunny weather.

The service starts at about $150,000, and here’s how it works: 24 hours before the wedding they fly PLANES through the clouds . . . drop a chemical called silver iodide in them . . . and makes the clouds burst into rain.

By the next day, the rain will be dried up and you’ll have blue skies. And they GUARANTEE their service will work . . . but for $150,000, they better.

They only offer it at some popular wedding spots in France right now, but plan on expanding if it becomes popular. There’s no word on whether anyone’s actually purchased the service so far . . . or whether it’s even LEGAL.
