Eight Foods That Make You Look Younger

July 28th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

kaleHere are eight foods that can make you look younger . . .

1.  Watermelon.  It has lycopene, which acts like a natural sunscreen and prevents UV damage.  One serving is like putting on SPF 3.

2.  Pomegranates.  They have a ton of antioxidants that increase collagen production in your skin, to prevent wrinkles.

3.  Blueberries.  The vitamin C and vitamin E help brighten your skin.

4.  Lobster and other shellfish.  The zinc accelerates the renewal of skin cells, and it can help with acne.

5.  Kale.  The vitamin K helps with blood clotting, which can prevent you from getting dark circles under your eyes.  It also has a ton of iron, and if you don’t have enough iron in your diet, you start to look pale.

6.  Cantaloupe.  The vitamin A helps prevent your pores from getting clogged.

7.  Avocados.  The omega-9 fatty acids help your skin retain moisture and look young.

8.  Walnuts.  The omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E help keep your hair looking healthy.  They’re also loaded with copper, and researchers think that having a copper deficiency is one of the things that causes grey hair.

2.  The Commodores, which came together at Alabama’s Tuskegee University.

3.  Pink Floyd, which originally formed in 1965 at London Polytechnic.  Roger Waters, Rick Wright, and Nick Mason were studying architecture . . . while Syd Barrett was working on an art degree.  He hooked up with the rest of them because he was a childhood friend of Roger’s.

8.  The Strokes, which really came together at New York University.

crzyIf you make the wrong choice about the woman you’re going to spend time with, it can cost you.
Avoid this by avoiding these red flags:

She’s a victim – If everyone’s against her, eventually, she’ll find a reason that you’re against her too.

Kids – If none of her kids have the same last name, you need to run. Not walk. Run.

She has problems at work – Most of business involves getting along with others. If she doesn’t get along with her co-workers, eventually, she will not get along with you. It’s a “her” problem,” not a “your” problem.

Not nice to service workers – The easiest “tell” in the world. If she’s mean to the waiter, she’s mean. Pay the check. Walk away. Never look back.

If You Want to Date Someone Hotter Than You, Become Friends With Them First

July 27th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

hotEverything you’ve ever heard about dating tells you NOT to get stuck in the friend zone.  Because the other person will never see you as anything other than a buddy.  But what if that’s WRONG?

A team of psychologists from Northwestern University in Illinois just did a study, and found that if you want to date someone HOTTER than you, you should become FRIENDS with them first.

They found that couples who were around the same level of attractiveness had started dating an average of a MONTH after they met.  Couples that were more mismatched in attractiveness had usually known each other MUCH longer.

The theory is pretty simple.  Even if your looks don’t blow someone away at first, once they become friends with you and get to know your personality, they could still find themselves attracted to you.

Of course, there’s no guarantee your super hot friends WILL eventually want to date you . . . we’re just saying it’s the best chance you’ve got.

Five Mistakes Guys Make on Tinder

July 27th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

tinderAccording to women, here are the five mistakes guys make on Tinder.

1.  Using too many selfies.  If there aren’t any decent photos of you that someone ELSE took, it’s weird.  So get one of your friends to take one.

2.  Generally looking like a slob.  Obviously you have a better chance of getting a date if you look good in your photos.  It’s something guys tend to have a harder time with, so don’t just post any old picture.

3.  All of your photos have other people in them.  If you only post photos where you’re standing with friends, it’s hard to tell which person you are.

4.  Writing too much in the description.  Huge paragraphs about who you are and where you’re from are fine on sites like eHarmony.  But Tinder is more laid back, so try to keep it quick, simple, and clever if you can.

5.  Not proofreading your profile.  Laid back or not, misspelled words and bad grammar just aren’t attractive.

The 25 Worst Names Famous Bands Started Out With

July 24th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

creed“Rolling Stone” posted a list of the 25 worst original names that famous bands almost went with, and gave the top honors to CREED.  When they got together in the mid-’90s, their original name was “Naked Toddler”.

Lead singer Scott Stapp said in his autobiography that their guitarist came up with it, but obviously people hated it because it reminded them of PEDOPHILES.  Here’s the full list . . .

1.  Creed was originally “Naked Toddler”.

2.  Creedence Clearwater Revival originally went as “The Golliwogs”.  It was a reference to a BLACKFACE character in racist children’s books from the 1800’s.  The guy who owned the first label they signed with came up with it.

3.  Black Sabbath was originally “The Polka Tulk Blues Band”.

4.  The Red Hot Chili Peppers started as “Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem”.

6.  The post-grunge band Finger Eleven were originally the “Rainbow Butt Monkeys”.

7.  The heavy metal band Lamb of God started out with the name “Burn the Priest”.

8.  The Doobie Brothers originally went by the name “Pud”, which is a slang term for the MALE ANATOMY.

9.  Earth, Wind, and Fire were “The Salty Peppers”.

10.  Blue Oyster Cult was called the “Soft White Underbelly”.

11.  Pink Floyd started out as the “Screaming Abdabs”.  “Abdab” is a British term that basically means the same thing as the “heebie-jeebies”.

12.  Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from KISS were originally in a band called “Wicked Lester”.

13.  The Beastie Boys were originally “The Young Aborigines”.

14.  Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were “The Band Aid Boys”.

15.  The Black Crowes were “Mr. Crowe’s Garden”.

17.  The Beach Boys were originally “The Pendeltons”, and also considered the name “The Surfers”.

18.  Maroon 5 released two albums under the name “Kara’s Flowers”.  Kara was one of their groupies.

19.  Def Leppard was originally called “Atomic Mass”.

20.  Brian May and Roger Taylor were in a band called “Smile”.  Then Freddy Mercury joined the group and came up with the name Queen.

21.  The Cure started out as “The Obelisk”.

22.  Radiohead’s original name was “On a Friday”, because they got together to practice on Friday nights.

23.  Pearl Jam booked their first gig in 1990 under the name “Mookie Blaylock”.  He was a point guard for the New Jersey Nets at the time.

24.  The Roots started as “The Square Roots”.

25.  Simon and Garfunkel started out in the ’50s under the name “Tom and Jerry”.
