Q:   According to a new study (out of Sweden) men who DO this LIVE LONGER than men who don’t. However, the same ISN’T true for women. What is it?

 

 A: date or marry someone younger

 

Unfortunately, the same isn’t true for women.  They found that when women marry men who are younger, it doesn’t help them live any longer.

 

 The researchers think the reason for the difference is that men thrive off the energy and support from a younger wife.

 

 But sadly, women are usually less reliant on getting support in a marriage, so a younger husband’s energy doesn’t really help them.

Q:   According to a new survey, about a quarter of people do THIS before they have company. And it’s just for show… What is it?

 

A: Buy a bunch of HEALTHY and TRENDY foods before people come over, so their fridge looks more respectable.

A: Use emojis and GIFs

Q:   According to a new study (out of the University of Texas) being in a room with THIS makes you dumber. What is it?

 

A: Your Smart Phone

 

The study found that when we’re just in the same ROOM as our smart phones, it instantly makes us dumber.  Yeah, your brain realizes it doesn’t need to work as hard thanks to your phone . . . so it doesn’t.

 

 And there’s another reason too.  The researchers say we’re so addicted to our phones that our brains have to burn a lot of energy just keeping us from picking up our phones to check the notifications.

Q:   According to a new study, the more a couple does THIS together, the less likely they are to stay together. What is it?

 

A: The more selfies a couple takes

 

 The researchers say it’s because taking a ton of selfies is a sign that one or both of you is ANXIOUS and INSECURE about your relationship . . . so you’re overcompensating with photos to show the world that things are totally perfect.
