USADo you want to be a completely AVERAGE American, living in an average place, having an average life, with other average people?  Apparently, you belong in Illinois.

A new study figured out the most AVERAGE states, based on how close they are statistically to the national averages for things like marriage, children, income, commutes, racial breakdowns, and jobs.

Illinois was easily the most NORMAL state in the country.

The rest of the top 10 are:  Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, Indiana, Arizona, Delaware, Missouri, Ohio, and Georgia.

They didn’t figure out the LEAST average states in the country.

Five Biometric Replacements for Your Password

April 16th, 2014    Posted in Offbeat News

heartGood news . . . soon you won’t have to remember your passwords anymore.  Companies have been looking at biometrics to verify your identity instead . . . like the iPhone fingerprint feature.

Here’s a list of five things that could replace your passwords someday . . .

1.  Your heartbeat.  Everyone’s is unique.  And a company is developing a wristband that can recognize yours to verify your identity on any WiFi device.  So your computer would only turn on for you, and your front door would unlock as you walked up.

2.  The shape of your ear.  A smartphone touchscreen could scan your ear and recognize you, just like a fingerprint sensor.  But unlike fingerprints that can fade over time or change because of injuries, your ears don’t change too much as you get old.

3.  Your gait.  The way you walk is unique too.  A computer can analyze your speed, balance, and rhythm to figure out who you are.  And a mobile device is always on you, so you don’t have to stop and verify your identity before you use it.

4.  Your typing style.  There are ways to identify people by analyzing their typing style.  So a computer could require you to type a certain phrase before it unlocks.  That’s a lot like a password, but at least you don’t have to remember anything.

5.  Your face.  Samsung’s new Galaxy already has facial recognition software.  It’s not very good yet, but someday you might be able to unlock your phone just by holding it up in front of you.

Things Men Will Never Understand About Women

April 16th, 2014    Posted in Offbeat News

womenMostly out of self-preservation, guys do their best to understand their wife or girlfriend.

But it becomes clear very quickly that there are some things about women that just don’t make sense.

Here are some things about women that guys will just never understand:

It takes women six months to choose a haircut. Bridges are built in less time.

Trying on everything, every size, every style, every time … C’mon ladies, life is too short for this.

How is going to the bathroom a social activity?

Throw pillows. They’re piles of pillows that aren’t even used.

Romantic comedies are cheesy and predictable – yet they’re still beloved by women everywhere.

Shoe hoarding, which leads to skirt hoarding, which leads to blouse hoarding.

If You Take Naps, You’re Going to Die

April 15th, 2014    Posted in Offbeat News

sleepingHere’s something brand new to worry about.  Next time you sneak in a quick nap on the couch . . . or curl up in a supply closet at work . . . it means you’re GOING TO DIE SOON.

Researchers at Cambridge University in England just published the results of a 13-year study of more than 16,000 people . . . and they found people who regularly take naps are much more likely to DIE YOUNG.

People who take naps are almost 33% more likely to die before age 65 than people who don’t.

The main reason is people who nap are about twice as likely to die from a respiratory illness.

Now, obviously we’re kind of goofing on the results here . . . because do people who nap a lot develop breathing problems?  Or do undiagnosed breathing problems make people tired and want to take naps?  The researchers aren’t sure.

Their big recommendation is if you find yourself taking a ton of naps, it’s worth going to a doctor to get yourself checked out . . . you could have an undiagnosed breathing problem.

Seven Things That Don’t Work Like They’re Advertised

April 15th, 2014    Posted in Offbeat News

richWe’ve all bought something that didn’t work at ALL like the commercial promised it would.  Then felt ripped off AND bummed out.

What’s one product you WISH would work like it’s advertised?  Here are seven of the most popular answers . . .

1.  Penile enlargement pills.

2.  Axe body spray.  No, it does NOT make women flock to you.

3.  X-ray specs.  You know . . . the novelty glasses where you can supposedly see through things.  Obviously it’s just a stupid optical illusion.

4.  Odor-masking cat litter.  That odor is NEVER really masked.

5.  Get-rich-quick books.

6.  Weight loss pills.

7.  Condoms.  No matter how thin they are, you ALWAYS know they’re there.
