Burglar Targets Funeral Home
Some creepy dude robbed a funeral home.
Police in Kentucky are looking for a burglar caught on camera stealing clothes from a funeral home. Authorities say the man broke into the Watts and Hunt Funeral Home in Leitchfield Wednesday night.
Surveillance video shows him stripping down and then putting on clothes that were laid out for the funeral of 81-year-old Ray Daughtery, who was to be buried the next day. Police say the burglar spent three hours inside the funeral home napping, drinking soda, eating candy and stealing the keys to a hearse. Investigators think the same suspect may have robbed a local person earlier that day.
Despite all this, the police have a message for the morbid man: "You can redeem yourself. Man up, come forward and let us work with you and we'll do what we can to help you out."
Report: Bald Men Are Sexier And More Confident
No guy likes seeing their hairline receding, but it turns out there’s no need for men to fear losing all their hair, because according to a new study, women actually find bald men sexy.
The study out of University of Pennsylvania had male and female students rate photos of men based on three criteria, attractiveness, confidents and dominance, and it seems the bald fellas scored the highest marks in all three areas. Those men who were both naturally bald, and whose pictures where digitally made to look bald, were consistently rated higher than guys with thick or thinning hair. The bald guys were also appeared to look taller.
“Instead of spending billions each year trying to reverse or cure their hair loss, the counterintuitive prescription of this research to men experiencing male pattern baldness is to shave their heads,” the study’s authors note. “The results of these comparisons should shed light on whether men with thinning hair can alter their interpersonal standing by shaving their heads.”
There was one downside to being bald however. The research found that those with shaved heads appeared to be on average about four years older than those with hair.

You Can Actually Be Allergic To Exercise
Joe O’Leary went to dinner with his parents at around 8 p.m. one Wednesday in March of 2015. He split a pizza, topped with tomatoes and peppers, with his mom. Then he set out for the gym and hopped on the elliptical. But about a half-hour into the workout, he started feeling weird. “My eyes were watering, I was having trouble breathing,” he says. “In another five minutes I was struggling to breathe. I looked behind me into the mirror, and my eyes were swollen — every part of my face was swollen.”
O’Leary was rushed to the emergency room and pumped full of steroids and antihistamines. He’d had an allergic reaction, but not just to what he’d eaten for dinner: it was the combination of food and exercise that did him in. Doctors quickly diagnosed him with a condition called exercise-induced anaphylaxis, where a reaction to an allergen only happens in conjunction with exercise. If he combines them with exercise, O’Leary will have an anaphylactic reaction to tomatoes, peppers, soy and nuts.
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis was first described in 1979, and probably affects around 50 in every 100,000 people. While awareness of the condition among allergists has gone up, researchers and doctors still don’t know exactly why it occurs, says Maria Castells, an allergist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
For between 30 to 50 percent of people, the reaction comes from combining certain types of food and exercise. For others, strenuous activity triggers a reaction to drugs like aspirin. Some women only experience the phenomenon when they’re at the point in their menstrual cycle with high levels of the hormone estrogen, because it can bind to the cells involved with an allergic reaction. “
What’s The First Thing You Think About When You Wake Up In The Morning?
A new survey reports that most Americans first think of money and work when they wake up in the morning—56-percent of men and 48-percent of women, respectively. And those thoughts might be influencing more than just your sleep schedule. According to the survey, people who woke up thinking about work and money were less likely to hit snooze on their alarms. What’s more, the peak salary ($46,000) was associated with a 5 a.m. wake-up time, while those who woke up at 6 a.m. reported higher job satisfaction and an average salary of about $41,000.
