NATIONAL ROOT BEER FLOAT DAY – NATIONAL WIGGLE YOUR TOES DAY – NATIONAL FRESH BREATH DAY


Luxury Chicken Diapers Are In - People raising chickens is becoming more and more popular, but having to deal with their poop is something not many thought through… until now.

As backyard farmers realize all that taking care of chickens entails, they’re learning to tackle things like security and housing. Poop maintenance was somewhat overlooked, though.

Now it’s cool because there are luxury chicken diapers! They come in all colors and designs and fit snuggly over the fowl’s offending rear. You’d be surprised at how many people are reacting on social media.

Amish Uber

An Amish Michigan man is the latest person to join the ridesharing business – well, sort of. 

Timothy Hochstedler gives customers a lift with his horse and buggy in what he calls the "Amish Uber." 

A ride with Hochstedler costs just $5. He operates out of Colon, Michigan, which is in the southern part of the state near the Indiana border. 

"Uber is a cool thing, every single year something new comes in and Uber is hot right now, so we have the Amish Uber. We can deliver people to their front doorsteps," Hochstedler told WWMT. 

Hochstedler coined the term "Amish Uber" and is not affiliated with the Uber company.

The True Commitment Test

There’s going to come a time in your dating world where you kind of have to test the waters when it comes to how much your partner is going to be willing to commit to you. Especially if you’re really into the person, and you’ve had the DTR talk. You might want to give them this one simple test to make sure they’re committed.

Ask them if they’ll delete their dating app profiles for you. It’s not hard, and chances are, you’ll find them on their phone later down the line and wonder if they’ve been using them all along. You gotta catch ‘em early, and really get into whether or not you both still need your profiles around.

The best way to spark the conversation? Tell them you want to delete your own apps and see if they agree with the idea! If they don’t – they’ve got some ‘splaining to do!

Two Old Men Escape Nursing Home To Go To Metal Music Festival

Two elderly men snuck out of their nursing home so that they could attend Wacken Open Air Festival, a four-day metal music festival in Wacken, Germany. Now, those are some hardcore grandpas…

Police were notified after the discovery that the two men were missing from the center. Authorities eventually found them at the festival at three in the morning looking “disoriented and dazed”, and apparently the elderly metalheads were reluctant to leave. “They obviously liked the metal festival,” says police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld. “The care home quickly organized a return transport after police picked them up.”

Good to know they’re ok after attending the massive festival, which was completely sold out by 75,000 people. Police have praised this year’s crowd for good behavior, besides a few minor drug busts.

Plastic surgeons warn "Snapchat dysmorphia" has people wanting to look like their filtered selves

While body dysmorphia is a condition in which people obsess over their perceived physical flaws, experts are now warning of Snapchat dysmorphia -- which has people willing to go under the knife to look like their filtered selves.

While nobody yet is apparently asking for the social media platform's "puppy face," Snapchat filters and apps like Facetune can magically erase a user's flaws, or exaggerate or enhance their faces' natural features.

A group of doctors published a warning about the trend, in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.

Selfies act as "portable funhouse mirrors," according to a study from earlier this year, shrinking chins and noses, and widening eyes to near anime character proportions -- and unfortunately, some people are turning to surgery to try to ape what they look like on Snap.

"A little adjusting on Facetune can smoothen out skin, and make teeth look whiter and eyes and lips bigger," notes the piece written by doctors from Boston University School of Medicine's Department of Dermatology.  "A quick share on Instagram, and the likes and comments start rolling in. These filters and edits have become the norm, altering people’s perception of beauty worldwide."

The paper continues, "This is an alarming trend because those filtered selfies often present an unattainable look and are blurring the line of reality and fantasy for these patients."

The filters, the doctors say, "make one feel inadequate for not looking a certain way in the real world," triggering dysmorphia with some people.

The paper's authors recommend that clinicians bone up on, "the implications of social media on body image," to better counsel their patients.
