Four Random Health Facts About Your Butt

April 15th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

healthHere are four random health facts about your butt . . .

1. Acne down there is very common, and very treatable. If it’s a problem, just go to a dermatologist. You might be embarrassed, but they deal with it constantly.

2. Reading in the bathroom can give your hemorrhoids, and so can playing games on your phone. Anything that makes you sit on the toilet for too long can irritate blood vessels down there, which is what causes hemorrhoids.

3. If you don’t have a family history of colon cancer, you probably don’t need a colonoscopy until you’re 50. But if it DOES run in your family, you should start getting them when you’re ten years younger than your relative when they got diagnosed.

So if they found out when they were 45, you should get your first colonoscopy at 35.

4. You can get skin cancer on your butt, even if it’s never seen the light of day. It’s actually one of the most common places people get melanoma.

JOBS THAT WON’T EXIST IN 10 YEARS

April 15th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

newspaperIt’s hard to find a good job these days – and over the next decade, it will probably get harder because, like it or not, more and more jobs will become obsolete.
Here’s a rundown of some jobs that just won’t exist in 10 years.
Newspaper Reporter – The most important stories are already broken online. Often on Twitter. With that in mind, you might want to reconsider your decision to major in journalism this fall.
Telephone Operator – Believe it or not, there are still telephone operators out there. You know … people who help other people make calls? Well, not for long.
Travel Agent – Some technophobes still rely on real, live humans to book their vacations. The rest of us do it all ourselves, at home, in five minutes, sitting in our underwear.
Musicians – There will always be music. But computers are being programmed to create more and more of it, which means real people who make real music with real instruments will make less and less money. If you think you were sent to this planet to share your music, don’t expect to be paid well for the privilege.

Five Facts About Body Hair

April 13th, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

bodyhairHere are a few random facts about body hair for you to suck down before starting your weekend . . .

1.  Body hair doesn’t last as long as the hair on your head.  Your body hair only grows a few inches because it has a lifespan of about six months.  The hair on your head can grow for YEARS.

2.  Your body hair has muscles.  Believe it or not, your body hair has muscle fibers . . . it’s what makes them stand on end when you get goose bumps.

3.  Body hair might be tied to intelligence.  According to a study from the ’90s, the more body hair you have, the more intelligent you are.  Researchers found that most male Mensa members had more body hair compared to the average guy.

4.  You can shed up to 150 hairs a day.  The average for most people is around 100.

5.  Hair color can be indicative of genetic disorders.  Blondes tend to have a higher percentage of learning disabilities and eye problems, brunettes are more likely to get addicted to smoking, and redheads are more susceptible to pain.
