The #ALSPepperChallenge Is The New Ice Bucket Challenge

Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge that got everyone to dump ice on them or donate money to raise awareness and support for ALS? Well now there’s another one to support the same good cause, but it’s way hotter this time.

The #ALSPepperChallenge requires you to eat a hot pepper of your choice and either endure the pain or donate money to an ALS charity. Then you get to nominate three people to take the challenge and they have 48 hours to complete it and pass it along.

The idea for this version of the ALS-supporting challenge came from Tom Haberstroh, former NBA insider for ESPN whose mother was recently diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disorder. There was a similar version back in the fall and they’re both encouraging more folks to give it a try, which means more money going to a good cause.

Micro-Cheating Is Real - Millennials are not fans of cheating on someone. So much so that there’s a new “sub section.”

Micro-cheating is “a series of seemingly small actions that indicate a person is emotionally or physically focused on someone outside their relationship," according to dating expert Melanie Schilling. It’s very close to emotional cheating.

Naturally, there is a list of signs to look for so you’ll know if your partner is micro-cheating.

  • They are overly protective of their cell phone.
  • You see then smiling and laughing at their phone a lot.
  • They talk about someone, like an ex, too much.
  • They pull out “you’re imagining things.”
  • They get defensive about the topic.

Nothing says romance like roaches for Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, the Bronx Zoo wants to help you show that special someone how much they mean to you with cockroaches.

The Zoo says the perfect gift for your loved one is a Madagascar hissing cockroach. The Madagascar hissing cockroach, or Gromphadorhina portentosa, is two to three inches long, orange and brownish in color and has a life span of up to five years. It hisses by exhaling air through its breathing holes, called spiracles. Their hiss takes three forms: the disturbance hiss, the female-attracting hiss and the aggressive fighting hiss.

You can name a roach in honor of your loved one, or if you prefer, in dishonor of an ex or enemy for merely $15. And this year, according to the Zoo website, you can add a roach-shaped pin, chocolate or socks with roaches on them to up the sweet and cuddly factor.

There are also packages available from $25 to $50, or for the big roach spender, the VIP package for $75 which includes everything: a roach pin, socks delicious chocolates and a printed certificate with the roach’s name, all for your sweetie.

All funds raised go to the Wildlife Conservation Society.
