Would You Be Willing To Get Plastic Surgery For A Promotion at Work?
A new John Hopkins University study, for example, has found that people with successful nose jobs appear more attractive, more successful and healthier to other people than they did before getting work done. “While we are not suggesting that [a nose job] is the only way to improve one’s appearance, improving our attractiveness and health as compared to others conveys a competitive advantage,” wrote study co-author and plastic surgeon Dr. Lisa Ishii. Other studies have shown that obese candidates are less likely to be hired or promoted over people with “normal” body weights.
- Are you more successful after getting plastic surgery?
- Do you believe getting some work done would make you more successful?
Japanese company introduces noise-cancelling noodle fork
Slurping noodles is the only way to eat them, though for some, it's not very dignified. If this bothers you, a Japanese company has just the thing for you.
The limited-edition fork goes for about $130, and the Cup Noodle maker is only manufacturing 5,000 of them.
The company has produced a promotional video which states that the fork can end potential harassment for noodle slurping, which is a real thing and in Japan is known as nu-hara.
But if you have some bucks to spare and want to eliminate the nu-hara in your life, visit the company website and purchase the noise-cancelling fork. Be warned, the fork will only go into production if they receive 5,000 orders.
Ways Meghan Markle’s Life Will Change If She Marries Harry
People are getting excited about the prospect of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tying the knot, but if they do, she’ll be trading her life as an actress in Canada for life as a royal. And that brings some big changes. Here are some of the things she’ll have to adhere to if she says “I do” to her dashing prince.
- She can pick a surname, but doesn't legally need one - Meghan will get a lovely title, probably Duchess or Countess, but she can also choose her own surname, if she wants one. William and Harry are Wales after their father and Kate traded Middleton for Mountbatten-Windsor. But anyone with the title “Her Royal Highness,” as she would most likely be, doesn’t have to have a last name, according to a decree from the Queen.
- She can’t vote, ever again - Because the royal family isn’t allowed to show preference for a political party by casting a ballot.
- She won’t be able to wear nail polish - Well, she won’t be able to get glam, on-trend manis anymore because they go against the royal dress code. But the Queen’s signature polish is a pretty shade of pale pink, so Meghan could try that.
- She will never be able to pose for a selfie or give out an autograph - More rules when you’re a royal. And the public won’t be allowed to touch her AT ALL, except for a polite handshake.
- She won’t get to choose her wedding ring - Every royal wedding ring is made from Welsh gold from one certain mine.
- She won’t be able to play Monopoly ever again - According to Prince Andrew, the iconic board game becomes “too vicious.”
- She will always have to travel with a black outfit - Just in case a tragedy occurs while she’s away from home, members of the royal family are required to change into an appropriate mourning outfit.
- She won’t be allowed to eat shellfish - The royal family avoid it because of the risk of food poisoning.
- She won’t get to open presents on Christmas Day - The family follows the German tradition of exchanging gifts during afternoon tea on Christmas Eve.
