The Feds Want To Turn The Moon Into A Gas Station - You can’t make this stuff up.

The race is on to colonize the moon, complete with space shuttle gas stations. U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross believes the future of commercial space travel largely depends on how successful the U.S. is at making the moon into a "gas station for outer space."

President Trump previously emphasized his administration would focus on private space projects. Ross reported the Trump administration is attempting to quickly deregulate space explorations, but says regulatory changes need to match technological advances.Source: CNBC


Nursing Home Hires Pole Dancers

A U.K. nursing home is feeling the heat after hiring pole dancers as entertainment for its elders. Local counselors deemed the choice “inappropriate,” but the managers over at Fairmile Grange care home are proud of the decision.

According to operations and quality director Izzy Nicholls, the “residents were given several choices of activity.” Turns out they chose the pole dancers to perform.

Counselor Peter Hall says it’s inappropriate. “It’s not really the sort of entertainment I would have thought that the residents wanted or would have encouraged,” Hall said. Social media, on the other hand, is praising the home with many people saying residents should be able to enjoy themselves.

Baby Name Stealing: Has This Happened To You?

Name stealing was the topic of a classic "Seinfeld" episode, where George tells fiancée Susan he wants to name their future child "Seven," after the jersey number of famed New York Yankee Mickey Mantle. Susan and George aren't even expecting, but when another couple hear the name and decide to use it, George is furious. More than half of those answering a survey dong by Today.com sided with George. They say that baby-name stealing is a real phenomenon, and that if parents-to-be know another couple has plans for a name, they shouldn't use it.

  • Has anyone ever stolen the baby name you wanted to use for your kid?
  • Should you have to ask a couple you’re close with if it’s okay if you use their kid’s name?
  • Have you ever stolen someone’s baby name?

Scheduling Sex Can Save A Marriage

Putting sex on the calendar doesn’t exactly sounds like the most romantic way to get together with your partner, but relationship experts say scheduling regular sex appointments can be good for busy couples. Research shows that sex is essential to a healthy relationship, so creating a way to make sure it happens is helpful.

Researchers from the University of Toronto studied 30,000 people and found that couples who had sex less than once a week were less happy in their partnerships. They also found sexual frequency was more important than having money when it comes to maintaining happy relationships.

Psychotherapist Fran Walfish advises scheduling sex for couples with kids under 10 and couples who have different “sexual appetites” and stressful jobs. Her recommendation for monogamous couples in a long-term relationship? Doing it once a week. She explains, “Once you go past seven days, then it’s very easy to say, ‘Oh, it’s been 10 days, oh, it’s been two weeks.’”

But Walfish warns not to whip out your planner when you and your sweetie make an appointment to get it on.“Writing it down gets too distant,” she says. “It shouldn’t be a contract like cleaning or chores.”

And the best reason to start scheduling sex to make sure you’re making time for it? Walfish says scheduled hookups can lead to unscheduled good times. “Sex can become intoxicating,” she says. “Once it’s scheduled, it becomes a part of your regular life. A lot of people can develop a desire for it once it becomes weekly.”

Man Who Won Custody of 13 Children Wants 100 to 1,000 In Total

As we told you before, a Japanese business heir won custody of the 13 kids he had via surrogate in Thailand. Now the mystery behind Mitsutoki Shigeta, who was previously unnamed, is being revealed. Turns out Shigeta is the heir to Japanese telecom and insurance company Hikari Tsushin and in Japan he keeps a very low profile.

He reportedly refuses to discuss his case, but some sleuthing been done. Mariam Kukunashvili founded the New Light clinic, which helped recruit his surrogates. She says Shigeta told her “he wanted 10 to 15 babies a year” and that he “wanted to continue the baby-making process until he’s dead.” She claims it was all part of a scam for votes in an election he wanted to run in.

Japanese tabloids say he wants 100 to 1,000 children and purchased equipment to freeze his sperm. This way he can produce children in his old age. Authorities previously ruled out human trafficking as a motive in his case. Whether any of the rumors are true or not, Shigeta’s lawyer stands by his claims that he simply wants a big family.
