There’s an old cliché that it’s better to look good than to FEEL good. I would say that counts as TERRIBLE advice . . . especially when someone takes it to the extreme like THIS.
A 35-year-old woman in Adelaide, Australia was recently helping a relative move . . . and she wore SUPER skinny jeans. She spent a few hours squatting to get stuff out of the kitchen cabinets and when she tried to walk right afterward, she COULDN’T.
Her calves were so swollen it was impossible to get the jeans off, and she had no feeling in her feet.
She was rushed to the hospital where they had to cut the jeans off . . . and she was there for FOUR DAYS before she could walk again.
The doctors who treated her said this should be a good warning about being careful with wearing skinny jeans . . . or at least being careful about what you do when you’re wearing them.
Ryan Tedder is confirming rumors that he’s teamed up with One Direction. In an interview with “The Guardian,” the OneRepublic frontman admits that he did collaborate with the British boy band but can’t yet reveal when and how what they made will reach fans.
Tedder played it coy after first, talking about the time he spent with the five youngsters. Ryan says he was “impressed” and “extremely happy” to find that the boys were “so normal.”
He described the group as being “at the stage of nuclear explosion in their career,” and joked that he was “looking for syringes” and wondering how they were “not more messed up right now.”
Guys, now would be a good time to have that talk with your girlfriend or wife about how GREAT it would be to skip Valentine’s Day this year . . . because you don’t need some commercialized holiday to celebrate your love, and so on.
Otherwise . . . it’s gonna cost you.
According to a study, last year the average person spent $131 on Valentine’s Day . . . up from $126 the year before.
Men spent almost twice as much as women, an average of $176 to an average of $89.
The study also found 32% of people plan on buying flowers this year . . . 26% will buy candy or chocolates . . . 13% will buy jewelry . . . 9% will buy lingerie . . . and 6% will buy gift baskets.
Oh . . . and most people probably haven’t bought ANYTHING yet. Last year, Valentine’s Day spending peaked on February 13th.
