The World’s First Fidget Spinner Phone has Been Released
If you’re one of the few people still playing with fidget spinners, you’re going to want to get in on this.
Behold: the first ever fidget spinner phone. Sadly, you’ll have to go all the way to India if you want to get your hands on the K118. Not only can you spin away as you text your mates, but the phone is also ridiculously cheap, costing about 1,200-1,300 rupees (£15).
It may have been released a little late as the fidget spinner trend reached its peak back in May and is dying pretty rapidly. Hours of fun!
But apparently the trend reached India later and is still going strong there. The phone also works as a Bluetooth device for smartphones, and has been launched by Hong Kong Company Chilli International.

Most Horrible Thing You’ve Seen At A Wedding
The number one question in the “Ask Reddit” section of Reddit.com last night: What is the worst thing you've ever seen happen at a wedding?
- After arriving 45 minutes after the ceremony was to begin, during the ring exchange, the groom gets this blank look and says he didn't know he was supposed to buy her another ring. The Sister-In-Law slipped off her wedding band and handed it off to the preacher.
- Just as the bride started walking down the aisle, her grandmother had a sudden cardiac event. We had to stop the procession and start CPR in the aisle way.
- I was just at a wedding where the father of the groom gave a 10-minute speech about socialism.
- Was at a wedding this summer. The groom's family absolutely tore their son/brother apart during the speeches.
- My cousin was the groom and had about 500 people in attendance. He got on the mic and said there's no bride, so we had the party anyway. He married someone else two years later.
- Bridal face plant followed by a girdle breaking, which led to the dress ripping.
- Brother and sister-in-law thought it would be fun to have their dogs walked down the aisle after their flower girl spread the flower petals. The dogs thought mid-way down the aisle was the perfect place to go to the bathroom on the white runner.
- For the bouquet toss, a middle-aged guy forced his middle-aged girlfriend out onto the floor, then stood by her so she couldn't leave. The bouquet was caught by an excited little girl. The guy proceeded to yank the bouquet out of the little girl's hands, gave it to his middle-aged girlfriend, then ran off the floor cheering loudly to high-five one of his buddies. The little girl ran away crying.
- There was like an 8-year-old boy who had loads of confetti in his hand so I didn't think much of it, turns out he thought it was sugar paper and ate all of it, he then proceeded to projectile vomit everywhere through the middle of the ceremony
- At my own wedding reception, I saw my wife's grandma, who was about 98, very slowly and with a terrible sense of inevitability fall sideways off her chair. Luckily she was fine, and lived for another few years to see her 100th birthday.
Womens’ Brains Make Them More Generous-We knew it all along, but now science proves that women are more generous than men.
A study out of the University of Zurich scanned brains. Many of them. The answers are right in the film. Women’s striatum, the brain’s reward center, activate when women act generously. When men act selfishly their striatum flickers with action.
To see the differences in men and women two experiments were staged. College aged men and women participated in a game where they decided to keep more money for themselves or accept less money but share it with another person. During this exercise, the researchers monitored their brain activity with a functional magnetic resonance machine (fMRI).
The good news is, the behavior can be learned!
You've Been Saying 'Sherbet' Wrong This Whole Time, And Here's Why
If you look closely at the freezer section, you'll find sherbet flavors from Baskin-Robbins and Edy's. Same goes with Baskin-Robbins and Dairy Queen, home to rainbow sherbet and orange sherbet. But if you order the fruity dessert at a store, there's a pretty good chance you pronounce the flavor 'sherbert,' right? Sherbet, without the second 'r,' just sounds wrong.
Despite kind of knowing there's only one 'r' in the word, and seeing it spelled that way on ice cream containers, we've come to accept 'sherbert' as the correct pronunciation. It's even listed as an alternative in some English dictionaries. Weird, right? Smithsonian Magazine took a look at how this mispronunciation came to be, and it turns out it mostly has to do with how we think the word should sound.
English language historian and Indiana University-Bloomington provost professor Michael Adams think it has to do with humans' tendency to assimilate sounds as we expect to hear them.
"I think a lot of English speakers are like me," Adams told the magazine. "When I'm reading aloud to my children I sometimes unconsciously repeat sounds in syllables or words that closely resemble each other, and then I re-read the phrase. Sherbet is begging to be pronounced Herbert on this 'principle.'"
So, we like when things rhyme. Makes sense. The other possible explanation is that it all goes back to a 1939 song called "Shoot The Sherbet To Me Herbert.' While the dessert is spelled correctly in the title, it's sung so that sherbet rhymes with Herbert. The song was a hit, and apparently, hearing 'sherbert' over and over again really stuck.
Now that you're craving this childhood treat, you can make a Fruit Loops-tasting sherbet at home. Just hold the 'r.'
Kittenfishing Is A New Dating Term And We’ve All Done It
It’s hard to keep up with all the dating buzzwords these days, but this new one raises an eyebrow because most of us are guilty of doing it. Kittenfishing is the new term used to describe a lighter version of catfishing – which is where you pretend to be a totally different person online. With this, it’s more like showing only an unrealistic, improved version of yourself.
Kittenfishing, or k-fishing as the youngins call it, can be the images you use, or shaving a few years off your age, or faking your interests and accomplishments. Psychologist Melissa Ferrari says most people who kittenfish don’t mean to be deceptive; they just want to give themselves the best odds in the modern dating world.
So if kittenfishing is just omitting things from your dating profile that make you less attractive to a potential date, or highlighting your best assets, practically everyone has done this. But even though a study found that 53% of participants lied on their dating profile, most don’t want to admit they’ve kittenfished.
The thing is, anyone who’s on a dating site has chosen their most flattering photos and life stats, so we’ve all tried kittenfishing. We just didn’t have a trendy term for it, to us it was just what you do to try to land a date.
