Apparently the hot new social media trend is taking a selfie where you’re high fiving yourself. And since that means you can’t use your hands, it takes some skill to pull it off.
It seems like the best strategy is to set your photo timer . . . toss your phone in the air . . . high five yourself, so you’re clapping your hands together like you’re praying . . . and hope you get a photo of the high five as it falls.
No wonder the ZZ Top guys get all the chicks.
According to a new study, women are the most attracted to guys with FULL BEARDS . . . because they think they’re the best bet for a long-term relationship.
The researchers think it’s because beards are a biological sign of being tough, masculine, aggressive, and having high social status . . . and all of those things are worth a lot of points in a long-term relationship.
But what about when women aren’t looking to settle down and just want to have a good time? They STILL prefer someone with facial hair over someone clean-shaven . . . only they prefer stubble.
In other words, being clean-shaven really doesn’t get you anywhere.
Here are some random facts for you . . .
1. Purple Skittles aren’t grape in other countries. In England and Australia they’re black currant.
2. It’s illegal to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower at night. And France actually catches people when they post them on social media.
3. A Hungarian fencer named Pal Szekeres won a bronze medal at the 1988 Olympics. Then he became disabled after a bus accident, and went on to win six medals in wheelchair fencing at the Paralympics.
That makes him the only person who’s won medals at the Olympics before a disability, then at the Paralympics when he was disabled.
4. The average person passes gas 14 times a day.
5. Mary Shelley got the idea for “Frankenstein” from a nightmare.
Are you already looking forward to parent-teacher conferences because your kid’s social studies teacher is SUPER HOT? Well here’s another, less important reason to be excited: Your kid’s probably going to get an A in that class.
According to a new study out of UNLV, students do better in school if their teacher is good looking.
The researchers had some students listen to an audio recording of a lecture and look at the photo of the person they thought was giving it.
Some of them saw a photo of an attractive teacher, and some of them saw an unattractive teacher.
And when they took a test on the lecture afterwards, the kids who thought they had a good-looking teacher got better scores. They also gave the teacher better reviews.

There’s a new social media trend that’s perfect for our age . . . because it takes a stance AND gives people an opportunity to compliment you.
The new trend is called The Power of Makeup. Women are posting selfies with makeup on just HALF their faces, and nothing on the other half.
We assumed it was to show how makeup isn’t necessary, and you’re beautiful without it, and blah blah blah. But it’s actually the OPPOSITE.
The whole intention is to show that it’s COOL to wear makeup if you want to, even if it’s more trendy these days to say you’re anti-makeup.
Which is kind of a funny cause, considering how self-righteous the Internet usually is.
