New York Man Wins Second Air Guitar World Championships Title

A New York man traveled to Finland to successfully defend his title at the 22nd Air Guitar World Championships.

Matt "Aristotle" Burns won his second consecutive title in competitive air guitar, which is equal parts dance and musical instrument pantomime, by strumming along to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' cover of "I Will Survive."

Burns, who has won three U.S. championships and has three world championships second-place finishes under his belt, is the fourth-ever competitor to win back-to-back world championship titles.

Burns said last year that his song choices help him stand out from the crowd.

"When I first started, everybody was doing glam rock or metal," he told the New York Post. "I based my whole character around a younger guy playing pop punk."

Restaurants Are Facebook Stalking Customers

Restaurants are always trying to up their service and business game. That’s why there’s a bunch of apps and companies now that can actually help track customers’ activity after they’ve dined at a certain place. Apps like Upserve, OpenTable, and Avero actually create customer profiles based on their credit card numbers.

But that’s not the only info they use - they actually gather info from social media like LinkedIn and Facebook to compile a complete profile. The profiles are able to analyze which customers are ordering certain drinks and dishes so that the restaurant can better serve their clientele. This really only works for fast casual and chain restaurants, as many of the finer dining experiences prefer to build real relationships with their customers.

But who knew restaurants were only steps away from sliding into our DMs??

Ecstasy Is Greenlighted For PTSD Treatment-A club drug may actually help thousands of people cope with trauma.

The FDA is declaring MDMA, or ecstasy, as a breakthrough therapy for treating post-traumatic stress disorder(PTSD). The recreational drug has been shown in clinical trials to provide significant relief for those with PTSD.

The new designation will help pave the way for effective treatments to be developed. The drug derives much of its benefit from creating feelings of euphoria. In one trial the drug led to more than 60 percent of test subjects ending up no longer suffering from PTSD.Source: Live Science


Health Professionals Report Cases Where People Put Sunscreen On Their Eyeballs to Watch Eclipse

A health professional in California reported cases where eclipse-viewers sought medical treatment because they put sunscreen on their eyeballs to view last week’s solar eclipse.

KRCTV.com reported that these individuals applied the sunscreen because they did not have the NASA-approved eyewear.

“One of my colleagues at moonlight here stated yesterday that they had patients presenting at their clinic that put sunscreen on their eyeball, and presented that they were having pain and they were referred to an ophthalmologist,” Trish Patterson, a nurse at Prestige Urgent Care in Redding, Calif., said.

The Sun also reported that doctors in Virginia have reported patients complaining of applying sunscreen to their eyes.

The nurse said that it only takes seconds of staring at directly at the sun to cause lasting damage to the retina.

Here's When People Are Most Likely To Cheat

If you think your spouse may be cheating you may want to check their schedules on Mondays and Fridays. That’s because, according to new research, those are the two days folks are most likely to be unfaithful.

The info comes from the dating service for cheaters, Illicit Encounters, which looked at info on when their users sent the most messages to other people to arrange a hookup. Not only did the site narrow down the days where most people cheat, they also pinpointed a specific timeframe, or what they call “The Golden Hour.” 

Seems most cheating takes place between 8 am and 9 am Monday mornings, when about 1,900 messages are sent, as compared to the overall 600 messsages sent each day on the site. The second most popular cheating time is between 9 pm and 10 pm Friday night.

As for why Mondays and Fridays are so popular, the site suggests it's because cheaters are too busy with family commitments over the weekend so they contact their side pieces either right before the weekend starts, or right after it’s over.
