Stay At An Edible Chocolate Cottage For Your Next Vacation
If you’re a fan of chocolate (who isn’t?) and are thinking of taking a trip to France next month, we’ve got the perfect place for you to stay. Behold – the Chocolate Cottage.
As listed on Booking.com, there is an actual cottage in Sévres, France that is made of 1.5-tons of chocolate. It’s seriously something out of “Willy Wonka” – everything inside, from the chocolate fireplace, chandelier, clock, cups books, even the walls and ceilings are made of chocolate… and they’re edible, too. It was designed by notable chocolatier Jean-Luc Decluzeau, and is located inside the L’Orangerie Ephemere event space.
The listing goes for around $58 a night, which sounds like a pretty good deal... unless you eat the whole thing by sundown. The listing also offers guests a chance to attend a chocolate workshop with Jean-Luc himself. Think fast though, the listing is only available on September 26th, with the only dates available to stay being October 5th and October 6th. Check out the listing HERE.

Bad News: Happy Relationships Really Do Make You Fat
Researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia analyzed data from over 15,000 people studied over the past 10 years and discovered that on average, those who reported that they were in happy romantic relationships weighed about 5.8kg (12.8lbs) more than their single counterparts. Not only that, but people in relationships tended to put about 1.8kg (3.96lbs) per year. Oops? Further, the unhealthy but tempting eating habits of one spouse may migrate to the other.”
- Do you always gain weight when you’re in a happy relationship?
- Do you care if your significant other gains weight as long as you’re both still attracted to each other?

*LIST* Slang Words That Make Teens Cringe
Earlier this year, Subway Canada did a poll asking Twitter users to vote on their favorite bread, which they called “bread bae.” Not one of their 135,000 followers voted, even though it racked up 13,000 retweets, and some folks think that’s because “bread bae” was created by an out-of-touch marketing person.
Plenty of other brands have tried to reach teens using their vernacular and failed and maybe that’s because we just don’t know how Generation Z talks. So Business Insider did a survey to get some insight into the way teens communicate today. These are some of the words that make them cringe and what to use instead, at least for today.
- "Swag" - It means someone who is cool or enviable, or they can “have swag,” but teens say it stopped being trendy back in 2012. Now they describe a cool situation or thing as “lit.”
- "Bae" - It’s like “babe” and became an ultra-popular way to refer to your S.O., but teens say it’s overused today. They didn’t offer a trendy word to use instead of “bae,” but say “bruh” is a good word for friend.
- “YOLO” - Drake’s song “The Motto” made it popular and it means “you only live once.” But YOLO is definitely out and Gen Zs now prefer DJ Khaled’s “key” or “major key” to describe something essential or important.
- "Rad" - This synonym for cool hasn’t been trendy since the 90s, so a better way to call something cool today is to say “chill,” which doesn’t necessarily mean relaxed and calm.
- "On fleek" - It means something that’s perfect, but teens today say you should go with “looking snatched” instead.
- "Sick" - Starting way back in the 80s this meant cool, but these days use “slay” to describe something really great - as in “she slays.”
- "Groovy" - No one’s really used this since the 60s, and now Gen Zs use “it’s Gucci” or “sounds Gucci” to say something is cool.

Florida residents complain about neighbor who regularly does yard work in the nude
Residents of Stuart, Florida are rallying against a shared menace: the neighbor that keeps doing yard work in the nude.
"He works on his car, and he does it naked and everyone has called the police, he is just out there doing his yard work, whatever he needs to do outside, naked," neighbor Melissa Ny said.
Reportedly, the man is a nudist and is sometimes accompanied by a second nudist out on the front yard.
According to WPBF, several residents have contacted the police, but the naked truth is that there is nothing they can do because the nude couple is on their property.
"I have seen these people stand on their front step, buck naked, both of them, and talk to a police officer, sheriff department. The sheriff's department told me to turn my head," another neighbor Charlie Estessaid.
In an ironic twist, the man and his family refused to do an interview with WPBF because he said they are "private people."
Wine And Chocolate Can Help You Live Longer: Study
Want to live longer? Try sipping on some wine and nibbling on chocolate.
A new study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine found that people who followed an anti-inflammatory diet of fruits, vegetables, tea, coffee and, yes, even a moderate amount of wine and chocolate were 18 percent less likely to die prematurely.
Researchers from The Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland followed the eating habits of 68,000 Swedish men and women for 16 years. They found that participants who stuck to the diet were 13 percent less likely to die from cancer by 13 percent and 20 percent less likely to die from cardiovascular problems. Even smokers who ate anti-inflammatory foods saw greater health benefits than smokers who didn’t.
“Even partial adherence to the anti-inflammatory diet may provide a health benefit,” Joanna Kaluza, a professor at the Karolinska Institute in Solna, Sweden, wrote in the study.
Inflammation can be the cause of diseases like cancers, dementia and cardiovascular disease, according to the Mayo Clinic.
A separate study in August found that consuming three bars of chocolate every month could cut your risk for heart failure by 13 percent.
But with alcohol, moderation is key. The Mayo Clinic recommends drinking about five fluid ounces of wine, which is equivalent to one glass, if you want to reap its heart benefits.
