Interesting Things

Women react fast to erotic images too

It is a general believe that men are more aroused by erotic images than women, but according to a recent study, it turned out, women have responses as strong as those seen in men. Erotic images elicited women neuron firing within 160 milliseconds-about 20% faster than occurred with any of the other pictures.

How can you tell if a marriage is headed for divorce?

Let the couple discuss a conflict. Studies demonstrate that happily married couples made 5 positive remarks for every 1 negative remark when they discussing conflict. In contrast, couples headed for divorce offered 0.8 positive remarks for every 1 negative remarks.

Three-person groups best for problem-solving

What is the optimum group size for logic-based problem solving? It seems 3-person groups work best. That's according to Patrick Laughlin and colleagues who tested 760 students on a series of 'letters-to-numbers' logic problems. For each of problems, the performance of students working alone was compared with the performance of a 2-, 3-, 4-and 5-person group working on the same problem. The 2-person groups didn't tend to perform any better than the best of 2 students who were working alone on the same problem. However, the 3, 4 and 5-person groups consistently outperformed the best of 3, 4 or 5 individuals working alone on the same task. The groups solved the problem more quickly and used more sophisticated equations. However, the 4- and 5-person groups were no better than the 3-person groups, suggesting a team of three is the optimum group size for logic-based problem solving. "If groups of three perform as well as groups of larger size, it is obviously a more efficient use of human and logistic resources to use 3-person groups", the researchers concluded.

10 Dollars

Grandma and Grandpa were visiting their kids overnight. When Grandpa found a bottle of Viagra in his son's medicine cabinet, he asked about using one of the pills.

The son said, "I don't think you should take one Dad; they're very strong and very expensive."

"How much?" asked Grandpa.

"$10.00 a pill," answered the son.

"I don't care," said Grandpa, "I'd still like to try one, and before we leave in the morning, I'll put the money under the pillow."

Later the next morning, the son found $110.00 under the pillow. He called Grandpa and said, "I told you each pill was $10.00, not $110.00."

"I know," said Grandpa. "The hundred is from Grandma."

The Study

1.)The American Government funded a study to see why the head of a man's Penis was larger than the shaft. After 1 year and $180,000, they concluded that the reason that the head was larger than the shaft was to give the man more pleasure during sex.

2.)After the US published the study, the French decided to do their own study. After $250,000 and 3 years of research, they concluded that the reason the head was larger than the shaft was to give the woman more pleasure during sex.

3.) Canadians, unsatisfied with these findings, conducted their own study. After 2 weeks and a cost of around $75.46, and 2 cases of beer, they concluded that it was to keep a man's hand from flying off and hitting himself in the forehead.

Straw sculptures made just to burn...

This is quite good!! Someone has too much spare time, and a vivid imagination, and is very good with straw and baling twine!! Photos taken in Naujamiestis, Lithuania

Almost nothing sounds as boring as a town full of straw sculptures ... until you set them on fire. Each year, the residents of the small town of Naujamiestis, Panevezys, Lithuania take a torch to their painstakingly crafted and highly flammable sculptures. Though the annual rite just began in 2006, it seems like it is here to stay.

Straw is abundant after the autumn harvest, and worked into every facet of country life. Lithuanians have strong cultural ties with straw: they weave fruit baskets and other home items with it, and almost every Christmas tree in Lithuaia is topped with a straw angel. Fire also has a prominent place in Lithuanian tradition: summer solstice is marked with an enormous midsummer’s day bonfire; and, in winter, bonfires and burnt effigies mark the arrival of spring. Many of the town’s 800 residents spend the entire month of September creating these massive figures out of eight tons of straw and about six miles of rope donated by local farmers; others prepare and deliver food to those hard at work. The Straw Sculpture Village opens in October, drawing visitors from all over the region, especially for the grand finale, when a crowd of over two thousand watches the entire village go up in fury of flames, fireworks, and frenzied traditional dancing.

Absolutely everything in the Sculpture Park is made of straw: the fence, the main entrance, and of course, the huge and imposing sculptures themselves. This year’s theme was “Farmer’s Market,” and showcased an impressive array of figures: chickens, geese, a very large pig, baker’s oven, fruit cart, bicycle, a car big enough for kids to pile in, and a functioning tavern. Last year’s theme was “Musical Instruments.” Each year, the people of Naujamiestis look forward to this spectacular and fiery celebration that marks the change of seasons with symbols of regeneration, purification, and transformation.

Of Cussing Parrots and Toothbrush Horrors...

*How to tame the cussing parrot *

Jimmy received a parrot for his birthday. The parrot was fully grown, with a very bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was a swear word; those that weren't cursing were very rude.

Jimmy tried to change the bird's attitude by constantly saying polite words, playing soft music-anything he could think of. Nothing worked.

He then tried yelling at the bird, but the bird got worse. He shook the bird, and the bird got madder and ruder.

Finally, in a moment of desperation, Jimmy put the parrot in the freezer. For a few moments he heard the bird swearing, squawking, kicking and screaming and then, suddenly, there was absolute quiet.

Jimmy was frightened that he might have actually hurt the bird, and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Jimmy's extended arm and said, "I'm sorry that I offended you with my language and my actions, and I ask your forgiveness. I will endeavor to correct my behavior".

Jimmy was astounded at the changes in the bird's attitude and was about to ask what had changed him, when the parrot continued, "May I ask what the Chicken did?"

*Tooth Brush*

My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush.

He held it up and said with a charming little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the toilet a few days ago."


There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today!" So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "H-M-M, " she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today!" So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "Today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and Noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YEAH!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to do my hair today!"

Attitude is everything.

Have a Good Day!

“Oh,” said one boy, “we were helping an old man cross the street.”

A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. "Pardon me," she said, "I'm sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It's just that you look just like my son, who just died recently." "I'm very sorry," replied the young man, "is there anything I can do for you?" "Yes," she said, "As I'm leaving, can you say 'Good bye, Mother'? It would make me feel so much better." "Sure," answered the young man.

As the old woman was leaving, he called out, "Goodbye, Mother!" As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. "How can that be?" He asked, "I only purchased a few things!" "Your mother said that you would pay for her," said the clerk.

This police officer sees an old lady driving and knitting at the same time so after driving next to her for awhile he yells to her,"PULLOVER". She replies,"No a pair of socks".

TV Trivia - Triple!

TV Trivia


Writer/actor Jack Webb created the cop show Dragnet in the 1950s and revived it in the late 1960s. The new show then spun off another police drama called Adam-12, which in turn begat Emergency!, about a pair of paramedics/firefighters. And a 1975 episode of Emergency! served as a pilot for yet another Dragnet-derived show. 905-Wild, as it was to be titled (based on police code for “wild animal, loose and threatening”), followed a Los Angeles animal control worker (portrayed by Mark Harmon). Most of the pilot episode showed Harmon fighting off a tiger in a grocery store and saving dogs caught in a brush fire. Apparently, the Dragnet magic didn’t transfer to the animal kingdom—NBC passed on 905-Wild.
The first experimental 3-D TV broadcast took place on April 29, 1953.

In 1979, Erik Estrada was riding a motorcycle in a scene for the show CHiPs when he lost control of it. The 900-pound bike flew into the air and landed on top of Estrada. He fractured several ribs, broke both wrists, and was in the hospital for ten days. It was one of the worst on-set accidents in TV history (but Estrada ultimately recovered).
Number of TV sets in the US in 1955: 25 million. In 2005: 247 million.

On a 1987 episode of Newhart, Michael (Peter Scolari) mentions star Bob Newhart’s old show, The Bob Newhart Show, to innkeeper Dick Loudon (played by Newhart). Michael calls it “the one with the shrink who stutters.” Dick replies, “He didn’t stutter, he … he … he stammered.”
That’s a bunch: 464 children auditioned for the six kids’ roles on The Brady Bunch.
