  • Literacy Ranking of top 10 Twitter Celebs

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    Oh, Justin Bieber.  Just when it looked like things couldn't get any lower, Buzzfeed.com determined the literacy level of his Tweets.

    "Literacy" and "Twitter" are two things that don't normally go together.  But some people actually put some EFFORT into their online grammar.

    The website Buzzfeed.com took the 10 most-followed celebrities on Twitter and ran their last 10 Tweets through an online "readability calculator", in order to determine the grade level their grammar would be appropriate for.

    They took into consideration such factors as word length and sentence complexity . . . and obviously they removed all the hashtags, links and "at" symbols first.

     

    PRESIDENT OBAMA came out first, followed closely by KATY PERRY and then LADY GAGA.  Obama's Tweets scored just over a SIXTH-GRADE reading level.  Katy and Gaga were just under.

    And, coming in DEAD LAST was JUSTIN BIEBER . . . who failed to reach even a FIRST GRADE level.

    Here's where all 10 of the top celebrities rated . . . along with the approximate grade level of their Tweets . . .

    1.  President Obama,  6.11

    2.  Katy Perry,  5.88

    3.  Lady Gaga,  5.74

    4.  Ellen DeGeneres,  5.24

    5.  Taylor Swift,  4.07

    6.  Britney Spears,  3.97

    7.  Justin Timberlake,  3.82

    8.  Rihanna,  2.74

    9.  Shakira,  2.14

    10.  Justin Bieber,  0.62

  • Products Don't Equal Pretty

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    Now I know why they say to not believe everything you hear on tv.

    If you want more proof that no one cares about truth in advertising, look no further than your own medicine cabinet.  Half the stuff you keep in there does the OPPOSITE of what it's sold for.  And Cracked.com has five good examples . . .

     

    1.  Acne cleansers.  The soaps and scrub pads marketed for acne problems will probably do more harm than good.  They're too aggressive and they dry out your skin, which doesn't necessarily help.  Your skin is irritated enough as it is.

    A serious acne problem might need antibiotics.  But for normal acne, you just need to wash two or three times a day with warm water, or mild soap.

    2.  Mouthwash that contains alcohol.  The alcohol in mouthwash isn't for killing bacteria.  It's for keeping the menthol and eucalyptus oils mixed.  Otherwise, your mouth would smell best when you're DRUNK.  And we all know THAT'S not true.

    Alcohol leaves you with a dry mouth.  And you need saliva to fight bacteria.  So a better strategy is to floss and brush regularly . . . including your tongue . . . and drink lots of water.  And use alcohol-free mouthwash if you have to.

    3.  Exfoliating creams.  They make you AGE FASTER.  When you peel off the top layer of skin, you might look better at first, because what's underneath is fresh and shiny.  But it's also more vulnerable.  Later on you'll have MORE sun damage, and more wrinkles.

    4.  Cuticle trimmers.  Your cuticles protect your fingernail beds from infection.  So if you cut them regularly to make your fingers look better, they might end up looking worse in the long run.  As in, nail fungus or other nasty conditions.

    5.  Shampoo.  First off, you can't do anything to ACTUALLY 'revitalize' your hair.  It's made up of DEAD CELLS.  And shampooing removes your hair's natural protection, making it dry and brittle.  Then you need the conditioner to replace the stuff you just stripped off.

    You're better off washing with water, and using shampoo as little as possible . . . or not at all.

  • Do You Feel Tired All The Time?? Here is a 7 step plan to curing it.

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    I found this little article and decided to blog it....because...who knows....maybe it will help someone.  I think we all experience or at least know someone who experiences being tired all the time.  This article gave pretty good insight....

     

    When you feel tired all the time, it can be hard to function. In fact, if you are feeling tired pretty much all the time, chances are you are seeking ways to feel better immediately. When you are always tired, it can be extremely difficult just to complete everyday tasks, much less to tackle more involved or complicated projects. Simply put, feeling excessively tired all the time is no way to go through life. Excessive fatigue can be caused by lifestyle issues, such as not getting enough sleep and accumulating an enormous "sleep debt." Or it can be the symptom of a medical condition, such as anemia.

    Instructions

    Step 1

    The first step when you want to stop feeling tired all the time is to examine your current lifestyle, paying particular attention to your current sleep habits. If you suffer from insomnia, you may find that treating your insomnia decreases your fatigue. (Please check out the numerous natural insomnia treatments mentioned in my eHow article about winning the battle against insomnia with home remedies like drinking chamomile tea, or drinking warm milk, or eating small amounts of food that contain L-tryptophan, like a handful of cashews or a slice of turkey before bedtime.

    Step 2

    Another aspect of lifestyle habits that can affect your level of fatigue is the amount of exercise that you get on average. Getting enough exercise, as you know, is beneficial for all aspects of your physical and emotional health. Exercising can improve your sleep (and therefore decrease your fatigue) in at least two key ways. First, it can tire you out so that you fall asleep more easily at night and stay asleep longer. Second, it can substantially boost your energy levels - and your mood - because it releases endorphins (feel-good) hormones into your system

    Step 3

    Examine your current level of caffeine consumption very carefully. Sure, caffeine can provide you with a quick, temporary energy boost. But it can also cause you to "crash" later on, draining you of your energy and causing you to feel even more fatigued than you felt before drinking coffee, tea or caffeinated soda.

    Step 4

    Make sure you are staying hydrated by drinking a lot of water and eating nutritious food. For instance, a diet rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber, which includes a lot of fruit, vegetables and whole grains, can help decrease fatigue and boost energy.

    Step 5

    If you have already made all of these suggested lifestyle changes and you are still feeling tired all the time, you will want to see your doctor to check for and/or rule out any underlying health conditions that may be causing your excessive levels of fatigue.

    Step 6

    For instance, you may want to have your blood drawn to check for anemia. If you are anemic, sometimes adding an iron supplement to your daily diet (with your doctor's approval, of course) may help quite a bit. (Always check with your doctor to determine the right amount of iron for you.

    Step 7

    Anemia (or an iron deficiency of any kind) is not the only medical condition or illness that can cause you to feel tired all the time. Others include (but are certainly not limited to): sleep apnea, thyroid problems, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, diabetes, and more. Your doctor may want to perform a battery of medical tests and blood tests to rule in or rule out any or all of these conditions, depending on which other specific symptoms you have. If you are ultimately diagnosed with any of these conditions, your doctor will want to create a customized treatment plan for you that can help reduce all of your symptoms, including your chronic fatigue.

    So the big sex tape gossip with Teen Mom Star Farrah Abraham and Adult Film Star James Deen is now unraveling with more clarity..  James says that it was all Farrah’s idea.  Supposedly she wanted to film the adult session and then secretly leak it out so it would become a big SEX TAPE SCANDAL!  The plan obviously backfired due to paparazzi seeing them together.  I guess Farrah is really upset with James Deen now for being so upfront about all of it.  Yeah Farrah!  You should be upset that he didn’t LIE on your behalf and reach for publicity!  What a BAD GUY HE IS!!  Meanwhile Farrah’s mom doesn’t believe her daughter would ever do an adult video….well, I think your in for a big surprise on this one mom!

     

    Russel Brand is the latest victim of the Celebrity Swatting prank.  This time on the 911 call the caller said that there were two men with guns and body armor approaching the home.  They got there and nobody was there.  I guess  Russel had left a half hour prior.  Swatting….can you imagine being a celebrity now-a-days and wondering if you are going to be the next SWATTING VICTIM!?  It’s still a trashy, stupid prank.

     

    Jenna Jameson officially turns 39 today…..battery charges and all…  She'll celebrate by blowing out two birthday cakes at a time while another guy watches.

  • Results From A New National Sex Survey

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    Midwesterners are the Randiest, Texans Have the Largest Junk, and More From a Nationwide Sex Survey

    A dating website called LoveAgain.com just finished up a nationwide sex survey.  Here are the six highlights . . .

    1.  People in the Midwest are the RANDIEST in the country.  53.5% say they have exceptionally high sex drives... What does "randiest" mean????

    2.  People in the Southwest say they've got the MOST SKILLS in bed . . . especially the women. 

    3.  People in the Northeast have the most sex. 

    4.  Men in Texas are the most satisfied with the size of their junk.  Unfortunately, the survey didn't say which state's men are the LEAST satisfied with their junk... For some reason this makes sense to why they didn't!!!!

    5.  16% of people in the U.S. have sex at least once a week.

    6.  The most popular day for sex nationwide is Saturday.  The only place that's different is the South, where Monday is the most popular day

    You may have hear this already, Roger Ebert Dies today after a long battle with cancer.  The pioneer of criticizing films.  He and Siskel originated the classic thumbs up, thumbs down rating system.  He’s a legend in Hollywood, has a star on the walk of fame to prove it.  He was diagnosed with thyroid and salivary cancer on ’02, and four years later had part of his lower jaw removed.  He continued WRITING movie reviews after that until pretty much now.  Thoughts out to the family.

     

    Amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorious got back to doing what he loves best a few days ago which is running track on a sunny day.  Meanwhile his girlfriend who he shot to death is still dead, even though he admitted to shooting her, the judge still let him out on bail.  So he’s been roaming around free like all the non-murdering people.  He says he won’t be doing any races, but his family and friends said he should to help himself with the trauma.  …..Who cares about his trauma….he killed his girlfriend.

     

    It’s also official that Jimmy Fallon will be taking over for Leno next spring.  It was originally going to be the fall, but I’m sure Jay wants to retire and chill, and I imagine Fallon wants to get things rockin with the new tonight show.

     

    Kardashian sister Kendall Jenner says she just wants a normal life away from the spotlight.  Then she posed for 10 magazine covers, shot another episode of her reality show, walked a runway, released a clothing line, published a novel and debuted a new perfume.

     

    Kate Gosselin is going to sue people who've attacked, threatened and bullied her online.  If you want to learn more about this lawsuit, just Google "Kate Gosselin vs. Everyone in America".

  • The Seven Worst Break-Up Lines...Are You Guilty of Using Any of Them?

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    This one isn’t a national survey, but instead the resulting opinion from well known columnists that are “Experts” in relationships and dating.  Supposedly these are the 7 worst break-up reasons to give or get.  Number seven throws me off, but then again, it would be one of the worst ones you could use……The reasons themselves are from the article.  The statements after them are my opinion.

     

    #1.)  "It's not you . . . It's me."…..which is hands down the worst one, and the default response to that should always be, “Cool, I don’t even want to go out with you anymore because you were cheesy and lame enough to use that line on me!”

     

    #2.)  "I'm moving . . . so we should break up." ….That one actually makes perfect sense and would save people a lot of drama if they went with that right away.

     

    #3.)  "This was incredible . . . but I'm not ready for a relationship yet."..Translation:  “I like you but I want to sleep with other people too and I don’t want to get involved with families and gifts on holidays and birthdays”

     

    #4.)  "I'm not attracted to you anymore." ….Fair Nuff.

     

    #5.)  "I need my own space."….”Ah, great, your gonna use the lame ‘Need My
    Own Space Line on Me, thanks’…if you get that one, you don’t even want to tell your best friend because of how embarrassing it is.

     

    #6.)  "I can't see you anymore, because I think your sister is hotter."  ….Yeah right!  How is that #6??  I want to watch someone use that one?  Seriously.

     

    #7.)  "I can't do this anymore."   ….Translation:  I’ve seen too many overly-dramatic movies and you suck to go out with.
