Beware of Eye Sunburn…It’s a Real Thing!
Actress Busy Philipps started feeling pain in her eyes—and it ended up sending her to the hospital. Turns out it was from a sunburn...on her eyes. She posted on Instagram. “I have photokeratitis from bright lights/sun exposure! Who even knew that was a thing?”
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, photokeratitis is “like having a sunburned eye.” It occurs when the eye is exposed to UV rays, either from the sun or from manmade light in sources like tanning lamps. It sometimes happens when the sun is reflected off sand, water, ice, and snow, and a common form of the condition is also known as “snow blindness.”
Grilling Meat May Be Bad For You - Before cranking up that grill this summer, you may want to think twice.
There are so many things we love that are bad for us, according to research. Tack this onto the list: grilling. So here’s the scoop. The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health did the testing and found that meats cooked at high temperature can raise your blood pressure.
The good news is, if you opt for not eating well done meats, the risk is lower.
The study followed over 100 thousand people for over 10 years. A third of the subjects got high blood pressure. Those that liked their meat well done, had a 15-percent higher jump of high BP.
Researchers aren’t sure why the results were so startling. some studies suggest cooking meat at high-temperatures could lead certain chemicals to form, inducing oxidative stress, inflammation and insulin resistance in animals, and the risk of high blood pressure.Source: Today
Sports Fans Eat Out Of Mayo Jars
Social media has been going berserk over a video of two women eating mayo out of a jar while at a basketball game. The two fans were watching the Detroit Pistons versus the Sacramento Kings when the jumobtron caught them eating straight up mayo from a Best Food’s jar. In the video, you can see one of the girls eat a giant spoonful of the condiment and then offer her friend a taste too.
Of course, this grossed out most of social media. ESPN tweeted the video with the caption, “You know, there’s food you can put on that.” Most of the Twitterverse agrees how gross it was, while others were a bit skeptical. “It’s most likely just vanilla pudding I’ve seen many people do this as a joke,” wrote one user. Another added, “You know it’s not really mayo and you fell for their gimmick right?”
The Kings fans have yet to confirm whether it was mayo or not, but it wouldn’t be the first time someone eaten heaps of mayo at a game. A Belmont Bruins fan, Graham was seen putting spoonfuls of mayo in his mouth while sitting behind commentators last year. People also questioned his mayo for pudding, but he put the speculation to rest by posting a video of himself eating mayo straight out of an unopened packet. Along with the video Graham wrote, “Vanilla pudding is disgusting.”

Hatchelorettes: Baby Showers For Baby Shower Haters
Some women out there love baby showers. They enjoy sitting in a circle, watching the mom-to-be open countless onesies, bibs, and blankets for two hours, probably boozeless. But as fun as that is for some, there’s a new way to honor the future mama and her upcoming little bundle of joy that could be more fun for everyone: the hatchelorette party.
It’s like a bachelorette party but for hatching a baby, so you get a pre-baby bonding ritual with a cute name and no shots or penis straws like you would at a pre-wedding party. Instead, the hatchelorette spoils guests with luxuries like yoga and a private chef.
This kind of party can include different activities, based on the new mom’s personality. But hatchelorettes include amazing food, a relaxing venue, and pampering amenities. Some women are renting an Airbnb and lounging by the pool, having massages, and watching cheesy rom-coms at the sleepover. As long as the mama-to-be is happy, you can’t go wrong.
A hatchelorette party seems like a fun alternative to the traditional baby shower. Because you can only ooh and aah over a breast pump and burp cloths for so long.
Forget Ghosting, The Newest Dating Trend Is Mosting
Another day, another dating trend that sounds just plain awful. These days it’s pretty apparent that singles just can’t be straightforward with each other, so they come up with sneaky ways to deal with relationships.
Ghosting, in which a potential partner completely drops out of your life, has been around for a while, but now some daters are taking it one step further, practicing something called “mosting.” This latest dating strategy has a potential mate saying all the things, pretty much convincing you that you’re the person they’re looking for, and then proceeds to ghost you.
“Mosting is ghosting, but where before you ghost, you completely love bomb the person with praise, compliments and faux perfect soulmate-type stuff,” Tracy Moore, who coined the phrase, tells the Huffington Post. “The ghosting is much more confusing and painful, because this wasn’t just a ‘meh’ date that you could take or leave. This person really made you feel like you had a rare connection in a sea of duds.”
So, why would any man put in all that effort just to disappear from a gal’s life? Well, dating and confidence coach Nick Notas says it all boils down to sex. “These men know flattery is an easy way to build interest,” he says. “They’re usually thinking about having a casual hookup and don’t have the guts to be upfront. Because if they do, they think some women won’t sleep with them.”

From Reddit: What's your secret that would ruin/change your life if it got out?
I run a cake business. I charge people hundreds for wedding cakes... Every last one is made using Pillsbury cake mix I buy for $1 a box at Walmart.
I once helped out my a female friend's family by taking care of their cat for a week. Every day for a week, I would go over there and snoop around their house. I found my friend's diary, and proceeded to read the entire thing. I used this information to get her to like me, and she is currently my wife.
I honestly can't think of a single person that I genuinely enjoy being around. There are moments, sure, but I'm faking it most of the time. I feel cold and heartless when I think about it, but I really don't like people. At all.
