But for guys, no law is as important than “the code” – a set of commandments that men must follow in order for order to be maintained in the universe.
Here are some man commandments you can’t escape from – and must follow:
A man helps his friends move.
A man doesn’t say what happened at the bachelor party.
A man gets the next round.
A man repays his debts.
A man becomes a wingman when needed.
A man buys his friend beers after he gets dumped or fired.
A man doesn’t sleep with his friend’s ex. (AskMen)

If you’re planning an international trip this summer, be careful how you use your hands. Gestures that are completely innocent here can get you in big trouble in other places. Here’s a good list of 12 gestures to avoid.
1. The peace sign. You probably know this, but if you give a peace sign with the back of your hand facing OUT, it means “eff you” in the UK and other places. George Bush Sr. got in trouble for doing it in Australia back in 1992.
2. The thumbs-up. Kind of surprising, because here we use it to be friendly. In a lot of other places, they take it as a big insult . . . as in, “You can SIT on this.”
3. The A-OK. In some places it’s used to call someone a homosexual . . . and obviously a lot of people still see that as an insult. It can also mean “A-hole,” or sometimes it’s just another way to say “Eff you.”
4. Curling your finger to say ‘come here.’ If you’re in the Philippines and you beckon someone by curling your index finger toward yourself, they’ll ARREST you. For them it’s a gesture that’s only meant for dogs.
5. The left-handed shake. Here, you might sometimes shake with our left hand if you’re carrying something in your right, and it’s no big deal. In other places it’s REALLY rude, because that’s the hand that everyone uses for their personal business.
6. The devil horns. We use it to rock out over here. In Brazil and other places, it means “I’m doing your wife.”
7. Spreading your fingers. If you’re in Greece and you spread out your five fingers to show someone your palm, you’re telling them to use their MOUTH on you.
8. Crossing your fingers. What we do here to wish for good luck is a big insult in Vietnam. Just like the fig sign, they think it looks like female genitalia.
9. Baring the soles of your feet. Some cultures think it’s rude to show the soles of your feet, because they’re lowly and dirty.
10. The middle finger. This one actually means the same thing just about everywhere.
This morning we had the pleasure of welcoming J. August Richards to the show. You know J from ‘Why Do Fools Fall in Love,’ and ‘Good Burger,’ but now you can check J out on one of most popular shows out there, ‘Marvels Agent of the S.H.I.E.L.D.’

Deep down we’re ALL just OLD PEOPLE, annoyed by EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. The only difference is that old people will actually admit it . . . the rest of us pretend we’re “cool” when we’re totally not.
A new Harris Interactive poll had people compare two similar pet peeves and rank which one bothers them the most. Here are the results . . .
1. Plane etiquette. What bothers you more: People who hog the overhead bins versus people who recline their seats in coach? Overhead bin hogs got 65% of the vote, people who recline got 35%.
2. Bad driving. What bothers you more: Tailgaters or slow drivers in the left lane? Tailgaters have the slight edge, 53% to 47%.
3. Public cell phone etiquette. What bothers you more: People who have loud phone calls in public or people who check their phones during conversations? Loud public callers got about two-thirds of the votes, 65% to 35%.
4. Email etiquette. What bothers you more: People who always REPLY ALL on emails . . . or people who don’t reply to emails at all? The “reply all” people had a tiny edge, 51% to 49%.
5. Social media etiquette. What bothers you more: Excessive complaining on social media or excessive bragging on social media? Believe it or not, complaining was voted worse, 55% to 45%.
6. Parenting etiquette. What bothers you more: Parents who let their kids run wild or people who give unsolicited parenting advice to strangers? The parents with wild kids won huge over unsolicited advice, 86% to 14%. There’s some irony there.
7. Grammar etiquette. What bothers you more: People who misuse common words or people who correct other people’s grammar? People who misuse words won, 57% to 43%.
8. Lateness etiquette. What bothers you more: People who are always late, or people who are totally intolerant of lateness? The people who are always late won BIG, 80% to 20%.

The report calculated prices of a variety of goods, like food and housing, and shows that prices in states like Mississippi and Missouri are lower than in the rest of the country.
On the other hand, the Northeast is the most expensive place to live.
Here’s a rundown of the 10 cheapest states to live in:
And, here are the 10 most expensive states to live in:
District of Columbia
1. Childhood ends at 11. The sense of childhood JOY and WONDER doesn’t last quite as long as it used to. A new study out of England found that basically, childhood now ends at age ELEVEN.
Kids’ happiness starts going WAY DOWN after that. (Jezebel)
2. The mirror makes us feel bad. A new study found that NINE out of ten women say they FEEL BAD when they look in the mirror. And it comes up a lot . . . because the average woman looks in the mirror around five times a day. (Daily Mail)
3. “Terminator” could come true. Believe it or not, giving computers artificial intelligence really COULD lead to a rise of the machines . . . it’s not just science fiction.
STEPHEN HAWKING of all people says he’s WORRIED that advances in artificial intelligence COULD lead to machines becoming sentient, and destroying life as we know it. (io9)
It’s one thing to make yourself more attractive by WORKING at it. But anyone can do that. The holy grail is to make yourself more attractive without any EFFORT. Here are eight simple things that can significantly improve your appearance.
1. Always stand up straight. And when you walk, look forward . . . not down. Basically, walk like you’re a superhero wearing a cape.
2. Get more sleep.
3. Only smile RIGHT before a photo is taken, don’t plaster a smile to your face. And stick your head out a little and tilt it forward slightly . . . it makes your face look the best.
4. Wear clothing that’s the correct size . . . not too big or too small.
5. Change your hairstyle at least once a decade.
6. Wear the right shoes at the right occasion. If you’re not sure what shoes are right, wear slightly nicer ones than you’d think.
7. Drink more water. It helps your skin and reduces bloating.
8. Change your sheets and pillowcases more often. You won’t be sleeping in your old oil and sweat anymore, which will help your skin.
