Of the five seats in a car, we all know the middle seat in the back is the worst. You’re squeezed on both sides by other people, and there’s no comfortable place to put your legs. But apparently it builds character?

A new study of more than 1,000 people found that kids who usually get stuck in the middle seat grow up to be MORE SUCCESSFUL than siblings who get to sit by the windows.

90% of middle managers say they usually sat in the middle seat . . . so did 72% of business owners, and 62% of people in upper management.

Why? The theory is that all those rough days in the car give you key business skills . . . like being adaptable, rolling with the punches, and staying level-headed in uncomfortable situations.

Guys Burn Almost as Many Calories Sitting on the Couch as They Do Working Out?

Guys Burn Almost as Many Calories Sitting on the Couch as They Do Working Out?

We used to think the best advantage men had over women was being able to pee in filthy gas station bathrooms without making contact with the toilet seat. THIS may be even better.

A new study found men burn almost as many calories sitting on the COUCH watching TV as they do working out . . . but women aren’t so lucky.

Now . . . the study was small, and it was conducted for a British TV show, so we can’t necessarily take it as scientific fact. But check this out . . .

A guy sitting on the couch for a few hours burned 640 calories . . . while a guy working out for an hour burned 834 calories. That is NOT a huge difference.

On the other hand, a woman sitting on the couch for a few hours burned 292 calories . . . but a woman working out for an hour burned 729. That IS a huge difference.

The main reason men can burn so many calories sitting around is that they usually have larger bodies and more muscle mass . . . so they need more calories just to survive, even when they’re not doing anything.
