You’re Probably Cleaning Your Ears Wrong

Like many guys, you’ve probably bought into the myth that ear wax is a sign of poor hygiene. It’s an understandable conclusion: Why would sticky little balls of goo in your ears be anything other than hazardous to your health? Except that it’s quite the opposite. Earwax, it turns out, protects and lubricates the canals, and has antimicrobial properties that defend against infection. In fact, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center found that cleaning your ears too often can lead to dryness and itchiness in the area.

How Many Lives Did Gun Control Laws Save in Las Vegas? (Answer: Probably Lots)

I’m pro-gun. I say that up front because your beliefs about my intentions will color how you see this post. My intention is to be objective. You can be the judge.

The Vegas gunman used bump stocks on semi-automatic rifles. Those were totally legal. They are also a poor choice of weapons, or so I am told by gun experts. In fact, they are so inaccurate at the distance involved in the Vegas incident that professional snipers say Paddock could have done more damage with a single-shot weapon and some aiming.

The gun experts I talked to (informally) also agree that the shooter would have killed more than a hundred additional people had he used a fully-automatic weapon. You can legally buy an automatic weapon that was made prior to 1986, for about $ 15-20K. The shooter was a millionaire, and he seemed to know a lot about guns. He would have known a fully-automatic rifle is designed to not jam the way his bump stock rifles did. He would have known they fire more bullets per second and more accurately. The death toll would have been much higher had the Vegas gunman used the right weapon.

He knew a fully automatic rifle would be more lethal than a bump stock rifle.

He was rich enough to afford the fully automatic weapon.

He had months to plan and prepare.

He was smart.

And yet he didn’t use a fully-automatic weapon in the attack.

The probable reason is that a fully-automatic weapon is harder to obtain and it raises some flags. I believe even private transactions with those weapons require some government paperwork.

I’m speculating, of course, but it seems to me that the ban on fully-automatic weapons did, over time, create enough friction for the Vegas gunman that he decided to settle for relatively worse weapons.

Ask a gun expert how many more people would be dead if automatic weapons were as easy to procure as bump stocks. My estimate of a hundred extra dead in Vegas is probably low.

Gun control apparently worked in this case, at least to an important degree. The tragedy could have been far bigger. A little bit of friction for obtaining a fully automatic weapon probably saved lives. We can’t know for sure what was in the mind of a madman, but we do know that any kind of friction causes some people to change plans. That’s probably what happened here.

My hypothesis is that crazy people will use whatever weapon is the most effective killing device they can obtain at acceptable cost (friction). Gun laws introduce friction. They are not intended to stop every type of crime or to deter every type of criminal. But it looks like they helped a bit in Vegas. Had there been no friction to procuring fully automatic weapons, it is likely the Vegas gunman would have used them. Why wouldn’t he?

If you want to read my argument for why I am pro-gun, see the end of this prior post.

It might be a good idea to pre-order my new book, Win Bigly, at this special page, because you get a bonus chapter by email. You’ll like it.

You’ve Probably Heard This Sex Advice Before — But Here’s Why You Should Pay Attention

Couples looking to spice up their sex lives often assume the effort involves some grand overhaul of intimacy and a venture into uncharted territory to have any real impact in the bedroom — not so, says Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus author John Gray. He’s been counseling couples for years in the art of communication and connection, and as he tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now — Extra,” the key to spicing up a sex life is actually a very familiar one.

“Romance spices up a sex life,” he says. And it doesn’t have to be complicated.

“Romance is when the man plans something in advance that’s out of the ordinary, and the woman anticipates that. She’s looking forward to that,” he continues. “It’s one-sided. It’s what he’s going to do for her.”

Gray suggests having a discussion with your partner a week in advance about what this planned event should be. The discussion, he adds, should be a true back-and-forth conversation, not a guessing game in which one person is unclear about what the other is looking for. 

“She’s going to inform him of three things that would really make her happy… His job is to provide that for her,” Gray says. “Then, when they actually do it, her job is to be happy while he provides that. That’s the dance of romance.”

The anticipation in this scenario is what’s truly effective. As the anticipation builds, so does the sense of romance, according to Gray. “At that time, oxytocin is being produced that lowers her stress and increases her romantic feelings,” he explains.

So, Gray continues, make sure that you don’t wait until the last minute when trying to do something “romantic.”

“Most married men wait until the weekend and say to their wives, ‘What would you like to do? I’ll do anything,'” Gray says. “That’s not romantic, and men don’t realize that.”

On that actual date, don’t forget to appreciate each other and resurface the initial spark that brought you together. “You know, when you were dating a guy, no matter what happened, you were happy just to be with him,” Gray says. “You’ve got to find that part of you and be happy no matter what, because he’s doing his best.”

This visible happiness is what helps one romantic gesture turn into a continual cycle of romance.

“When you’re happy with a man doing his best, next time he’ll do better,” Gray says. “That’s what motivates men. So that’s a secret of creating romance: plan in advance.”

5 Things You Probably Never Knew About Lucille Ball

Today, August 6th, would have been Lucille Ball’s 104th birthday! Though America’s favorite redhead passed away long ago, in 1989, she’s still very much alive in our hearts and homes as millions of viewers tune in to watch her hysterical antics on our beloved show, “I Love Lucy.” 

We know that Lucille — or “Lucy” as we like to think of her — could make us laugh like no one else, but here are some little-known facts about the comedian that you may not know.

1. She wasn’t always Lucy. 

Before the world knew her as Lucy Ricardo, a young Lucille Ball started her career as a model, using the name, “Diane Belmont.” She reportedly thought the name sounded more glamorous than her birth name and is said to have gotten the idea after driving by the Belmont Race Track in New York. We have to admit, it does have a ring to it. 

 2. Her pregnancy on the show was very real. 

It came as a surprise when Lucy was said to be “expecting” on the show … after all, she and Ricky had separate beds. The p-word was never mentioned on the show. Given the times, show execs were afraid they would offend audiences, as the pregnancy would insinuate the couple did indeed have sex. Lucy was TV’s first pregnant character, though she was just said to be ‘spectin. It so happened that the episode when Lucy gave birth to little Ricky was aired on the same day that Lucille delivered her second child, Desi Jr., in a cesarean birth. 

3. She wasn’t a true redhead. 

 

Although her vivid red hair came to be her trademark, Lucy was actually a natural brunette. She first dyed her hair blonde early in her career when she landed her first roles in Hollywood. In the early 1950s, she was urged to dye her hair red by MGM and she agreed. Her hair color was actually a “golden apricot,” according to her hair stylist, and she used a henna rinse, which they kept under lock and key. 

4. She wasn’t a star student.

 

As a teenager, Lucy enrolled in a New York City drama school to work on her acting but found she was often too nervous to perform in front of her peers. The school sent her mother a letter saying that she was too “shy and reticent” to be a successful student. Boy, were they wrong. 

5. She found love again, after her marriage to Desi Arnaz ended.

Lucy and Ricky may not have gotten their happy ending in real life, but Lucy did remarry after her 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz ended in divorce. She married comedian Gary Morton in the early ’60s and they stayed married until she died in 1989. 

No doubt about it. We still love Lucy.

7 Mistakes You’re Probably Making On Your Online Dating Profile

 

Having no luck getting a decent guy or woman to message you on online dating sites? We hate to say it, but it may be because the profile you’ve created is unremarkable. (Hey, you’ve been in a relationship for years — possibly even decades; there was no need to master the art of the perfect Match.com profile.) 

To help you land a date, we asked a handful of dating experts and coaches to weigh in with the most common mistakes they see divorcées making in their profiles. 

Read what they had to say – and their advice on how to write a better profile — below: 

1. Your profile picture is less than flattering. 

Online daters wade through hundreds and hundreds profiles to find one person worth meeting for coffee. Of course they’re making snap judgments about you based solely on your profile photo. That grainy, low-res photo you uploaded from Facebook isn’t doing you any favors – and don’t even think about posting a pic from five years ago. 

“Every photo sends a message,” said dating and relationship expert Damona Hoffman. “Don’t think you need to post a photo from back in the day that’s overly sexy to get a date. With clever cropping and your best angle, you can direct people’s eyes to exactly what you want them to notice about you.” 

To get casual, totally flattering profile photos, Jeffrey Platts — a dating expert and men’s coach based in L.A. — recommends having a friend snap photos of you any time you’re feeling “sexy, confident and well-dressed” while hanging out. 

“It just takes 30 seconds and you’ll be adding to your collection of great photos to choose from,” he said. 

2.  You’re boring people to tears in your “about me” section. 

Your front-facing, model status profile pic may be what draws people in, but a compelling “about me” section that shows off your personality is what will land you a date. Describing yourself as a “laid-back guy who loves the beach and getting drinks” is the meh-est of meh descriptions. 

“That pretty much describes 99 percent of singles,” said Platts. “If I tell you I’m going to buy you any smartphone you want, you wouldn’t just say ‘Thanks, just get me one that makes calls and can surf the web.’ No, you’d tell me get the a 64GB iPhone 6 Plus in white. You want someone to want you because of you, not simply because you’re a warm-bodied male or female.” 

To spice up your profile, Platt suggests injecting some humor and personality into it: “Then people who share similar values, interests and lifestyles will gravitate toward you.” 

3. Mentioning your ex — or any other failed relationships. 

This should go without saying: Don’t bring up your ex or other low-points in your romantic history. Divorce may have taught you what you categorically don’t want in a new partner, but don’t waste valuable space in your profile listing out negative traits you don’t want in your life.  Surprisingly, it’s something Laurie Davis, founder of online dating concierge service eFlirt, said she sees all the time while doctoring the dating profiles of divorcées. 

“It sets a negative tone for your profile — not the most attractive quality to lead with!” she said, “It’s best to keep your last relationship, and all the baggage that came with it, out of your first impression.” 

4. Your word count is out of control.  

Adopt the Goldilocks principle when considering the length of your profile: Not too short, not too long, but just right. You want to tell a story about yourself that’s intriguing but leave the whole story for the dates to come. 

“Say just enough in your profile to get them to want to meet in person and reveal the rest there,” said Hoffman. 

5. Your username is forgettable. 

Sorry, SexyLady432 and Soccerfan1973, but you may want to rethink that username. What you call yourself won’t likely be a deal-breaker for most but it’s worth taking the time to come up with something original and more grown-up than the examples above, said Platt. 

“Look, I know that as more and more people sign up for online dating sites, the good usernames get swapped up but there’s still room for creativity and personality,” he said. “Test out several variations until you come up with one that you like and is available. You can always try lumberjackyogi and crossfitqueen.” 

6.  You post pics of your kids or talk endlessly about being a parent.

Your kids may be adorable, Honor Roll-making angels but that doesn’t mean they should be the stars of your dating profile. While it’s natural to include details about your kids or life as a parent in your profile, you don’t want to overdo it — and you definitely don’t want to include pics of the kids, Davis said. 

“Even if the photos with the kids are simply the most flattering, I’ve’ found that what works best is to keep the focus on you, and you alone, in your photos,” she said. “Crop out the others around you, in particular children.” 

7.  You send an awkward first message. 

You now have the tools to write a profile that hits all the right marks, but remember: all the hard work you put into your profile can be upended if you send inappropriate messages to people you’re interested in. A mere “hi” or “hey baby” aren’t likely to go over well.

To ensure you’re sending an initial message that won’t offend or bore people, Platt recommends putting it through a “would I ever say this in real life?” litmus test. 

“Imagine going up to someone at a bar, saying ‘hi’ and just standing there silently. You wouldn’t, so why do the same thing virtually? And women (and men) get literally hundreds of these messages. I’ve yet to meet a woman who has written back to an initial one-word message.” 

To knock it out of the park with your first message, Platt said to “Write something that shows you actually read their profile. And the easiest way to do that is directly mention something that he or she wrote about and ask them a genuinely curious question about it.”

In a sea of “hi” and “hey babys,” Platt said you’re sure to stand out.

‘Frozen’ Has A Ridiculous/Hilarious Disclaimer You Probably Never Noticed

 

Nearly a year and half after Disney’s “Frozen” hit theaters, it’s still a cultural tour de force,  having grossed $ 1.2 billion worldwide at the box office, influencing the monikers of a generation to come, and just, well … whatever this is. 

Odds are you’ve seen it more than once, and you’ve likely asked someone if they wanted to build a snowman, but have you stuck around long enough to watch the entire credits roll? 

Our friends over at HuffPost Canada did, and they found that there’s a ridiculous/hilarious disclaimer that was probably tacked on, lest they be subject to the complaints of some MRAs or something. Kidding. Maybe. Enjoy.

Ex-Pastor Wasn’t Going To Set Self On Fire Over Gay Marriage… Probably

Inquiring minds are wondering whether Rick Scarborough, a conservative Christian political advocate who was said to have threatened to set himself on fire if the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, is now merely a pile of smoldering ashes.

Several outlets reported Scarborough’s supposed threat. But it turns out it was a bit of an exaggeration.

The reports come from a statement that Scarborough, a former pastor, made on the National Emergency Coalition show — a podcast linked to a right-wing group Staying True to America’s National Destiny, the Independent reported this week. Scarborough never actually mentioned lighting himself ablaze.

What Scarborough said — referring to how devoted he and his followers are to “traditional values” — was, “We are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and if necessary we will burn” Have a listen for yourself:

While it’s tempting to imagine a man so fanatically committed to bigotry that he would take a match to himself, it’s more likely that Scarborough meant he’d burn figuratively.

The Huffington Post contacted Scarborough’s organization, Vision America, to ask about any potential plans for self-immolation in light of Friday’s Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage. We have not heard back.

News in Brief: Guy Sipping Energy Drink On Subway Probably Heading Off To Snowboard In X Games Or Something

NEW YORK—Speculating that his life must be one of constant thrills and unbridled adventure, subway sources confirmed Thursday that the guy currently sipping an energy drink while riding the downtown 6 train is probably heading off to snowboard in the X Games or engage in some other mind-blowing extreme sport. “Judging by that can of energy drink in his hand, this guy must be on his way to compete in some kind of freestyle snowpipe event, or maybe carve massive waves in an international surfing championship,” said fellow commuter Josh Harper, noting that the audacious, risk-taking man would surely need the mental and physical stimulation provided by his energy drink in order to, most likely, free climb a 3,000-foot cliff face and then BASE jump back down to the bottom once he reached the top. “It’s obvious that coffee alone isn’t enough for this guy—he …

Has the Hybrid Food Trend Gone Too Far? (Yes, Probably)

Maybe we should blame Dominique Ansel. The French pastry chef’s creation of the Cronut—the love child of a croissant and doughnut—was named one of the greatest innovations of 2013. Since then, there have been many haute-culinary innovations, ranging from the peanut butter–stuffed pretzel to the Shoyu Ramen Burger. But the hybrid food trickle-down effect has now reach full, unabashed insanity: On Wednesday, Pizza Hut announced the arrival of the Hot Dog Bites Pizza—28 pigs-in-blankets wrapped around a traditional pie.

The carnival-style fusion food has been building for a while. In 2010, KFC announced its Double Down sandwich, which forgoes bread for two fried-chicken filets. While it was originally thought to be an April Fools’ Day joke, the all-meat patty was willed into reality and continued to pop up at KFC locations both stateside and internationally. In January, the chain unveiled an inexplicable revamp of the Double Down: the Double Down Dog, a cheese-covered hot dog nestled between a “bun” of fried chicken.

In the past few months, chains have continued to pump out shock-value hybrid foods. Dunkin Donuts created a Glazed Doughnut Breakfast Sandwich. Little Caesars got in the game by wrapping three-and-a-half feet of bacon around a Sicilian-style pizza. Taco Bell has seen great success from its hybrid food initiative. Coming off the heels of the chain’s breakfast addition, the Waffle Taco, in February, Taco Bell unveiled a new dessert: Cap’n Crunch Delights, deep-fried dough, filled with cream and dusted with Cap’n Crunch, which will be available July 2. But no one does Frankenstein-style creations quite like Carl’s Jr. In April, the chain announced that they are testing out their Pepperoni Pizza Fries, a poutine-meets-pizza that no one ever wanted, and in May, Carl’s released its crown jewel: the “Most American Thickburger,” a beef patty, topped with a split hot dog, which rests on a bed of Lay’s potato chips.

There are, of course, outliers that don’t result in nausea. In May, Olive Garden gave word that they’re going to fashion their patron-favorite breadsticks into classic Italian sandwiches. (How was this not a thing before?) And last month, Starbucks released six new syrupy-sweet Frappuccinos in celebration of its 20th anniversary, all with pretty normal-sounding flavors. But the coolest innovation of all has nothing to do with food: In Hong Kong, Pizza Hut has begun delivering select pies in boxes that can be converted into a pseudo movie-projector.

Hopefully, Pizza Hut’s newest invention will send a message to all chains with a penchant for Freaky Friday food: There are better ideas out there.

Daniel Radcliffe Has Probably Traveled Through Time Just To Mess With Us All

Are we sure time-turners don’t exist? Because Daniel Radcliffe looks an awful lot like the men and women in these old-timey photos unearthed by people on Reddit.

For a man who once wore the same outfit for months just to mess with the paparazzi, we wouldn’t put it past him to pull a prank of this scale — if, you know, magic were real. Which it’s not. Probably.

We’ll have to wait for October to roll around for his next onscreen performance, but maybe there’s another yellowing snapshot in an old shoebox tucked away in someone’s attic waiting to be discovered before then.

“Not-Daniel Radcliffe” was really living it up in the past …

Listening to some jams in the 1940s.


Reddit user gaztruman posted this supposedly 70-year-old photo of a crowd at Band on the Wall Manchester, a music venue.

Kidding around with some pals.


Reddit user microwavetea posted this photo, captioned “My grandma is a time-traveling Daniel Radcliffe.” That guy in the middle did not get the joke.

Making the most of those golden high-school days.


Pictured above with a wee Andy Samberg, Reddit user tackytick says they found this photo in an old yearbook from 1978.

Looking prim and proper with a string of pearls — and some very familiar glasses.


Reddit user gurbla posted this photo of a time-traveling wizard!!! respectable gentlewoman.

And posing prettily for the camera.


According to Reddit user Waldenponds16, this is lady is a prostitute in the 1800s. All we see is Harry having some fun.

Mom With Breast Cancer Says ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Saved Her Life: ‘That TV Show Was Probably My Sign’

An Israeli woman is crediting ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ with saving her life after an episode of the medical drama prompted her to seek a second opinion about a lump in her breast.

Two years ago, Sarit Fishbaine visited a breast specialist to get a check-up. The doctor told her that she had “lumpy breasts,” but assured her that she “had nothing to worry about.”

“I was 34 years old, healthy and nursing my third child — any lumpiness, [the doctor] said, was probably due to milk collecting in one area of the breast and the issue would likely subside once I stopped nursing,” Fishbaine told Yahoo! News.

Six months later, however, after she had stopped breastfeeding, a lump in Fishbaine’s left breast did not go away. She initially dismissed it as nothing, but warning bells sounded after she caught an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.”

“In the episode, a young mom arrives at Seattle Grace Hospital for a mastectomy after her breast cancer had been mistaken for milk collecting in her breast. I couldn’t fall asleep that night — it felt like a huge warning sign,” she told Yahoo!

The very next day, Fishbaine made an appointment to see another breast specialist.

This time, the doctor sent her for an “urgent mammogram and biopsy.” It was soon discovered that Fishbaine had Stage 3 breast cancer, which had spread to her lymph nodes.

“I started six months of chemo right away and after that I had surgery, I had a mastectomy and then I had radiation therapy so I got the full package,” Fishbaine told NBC News. “I love ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and I love watching TV and I think God works in mysterious ways and that watching that TV show was probably my sign.”

Fishbaine, who lives in Kvutzat Yavne, a religious kibbutz in Israel, is now cancer-free. She says she’s getting reconstructive surgery and working to “rebuild” her life.

On May 16, Shonda Rhimes, the director, producer and screenwriter of “Grey’s Anatomy,” shared Fishbaine’s story on Facebook.

“Humbling,” Rhimes wrote.

Humbling…

Posted by Shonda Rhimes on Friday, May 15, 2015

Fishbaine isn’t the first in her family to have a story go viral. As The Times of Israel points out, Fishbaine’s dad — Sydney Engelberg, a professor who teaches at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem — won the hearts of netizens earlier this month after a photograph surfaced of him holding a baby during a lecture.

“Dad, you’re the best!” Fishbaine wrote on her Facebook page at the time, per a Times translation.

What You Probably Don’t Know About Domestic Violence and Abuse (VIDEO)

Ilene, 20, says her boyfriend, Matt, constantly accuses her of cheating on him, insults her appearance, calls her despicable names, and threatens to take their son and leave her homeless. Watch as Robin McGraw, Dr. Phil’s wife who’s a leading advocate of domestic violence awareness, says: “A lot of people think that domestic violence is if someone hits, kicks, [or] punches you. What we’re seeing here today is verbal and mental abuse.”

9 Warning Signs You Are In An Abusive Relationship

She tells Ilene, “You are in an abusive relationship. My instinct as a woman is to just run up there, and grab you, and run out the back door, and hide you and keep you from him. Of course, I can’t do that. I want to. But what we’re here to do today is to educate you and tell you that you are being abused. You do not have to be talked to this way and treated this way. You can demand that he treat you with dignity and respect. You can demand that he treat you in an honorable way. And you can demand of yourself that you will not accept that of him. You have the right to tell him: ‘You will treat me with respect. You will honor me.'”

10 Hidden Wedding Costs You Probably Forgot To Consider

By Kellee Khalil for Lover.ly

When planning a wedding, it’s easy to think about your budget in terms of big ticket items: the dress, the venue, the flowers, the food and beverages. But it’s the little wedding-day extras that can really add up and put you over your intended budget. So before you come thousands of dollars short due to unexpected wedding costs, read on for the hidden fees you may have forgotten to add to your budget.

1. Postage. We’ve found that engaged couples make many trips to the post office! Wedding invitations often need extra postage due to their weight and shape. You also need to account for a stamp for each guest’s RSVP, thank you card, and save the date.

2. Service fees, tax, and gratuity. Read the fine print carefully on your catering contract; you’ll likely have to pay sales tax on your food and booze, and you may be on the hook for a 20 percent service fee and an 18 percent gratuity. That means if your venue has a $ 10,000 food and beverage minimum, an 8.25% sales tax plus service and gratuity could add another $ 4,635 to your final bill.

3. Tips. If gratuity isn’t included in a contract, etiquette still dictates that you give most vendors a tip of some sort. While the specifics will depend on how many vendors you use and whose contract includes gratuity, most couples should plan to tip the photographer, videographer, florist, musicians/DJ, driver, officiant and hair and makeup stylists.

4. Cake cutting fees. Many venues now either provide a wedding cake as part of their package or require that you work with a specific bakery. If your venue does allow you to bring your own cake, they may charge a cake cutting fee. So you can bring in a cake from your favorite baker or something your Aunt Betty whips up, but be prepared to spend $ 1-$ 3 per slice to have your venue’s staff cut the cake.

5. Table, chairs, and place settings rentals. Before you book your venue, find out what they provide in terms of furniture and serving ware. If they offer functional brown folding chairs and long, no-frills, brown banquet tables, you may find yourself wanting to upgrade. The same goes for linens, place settings, and glasses. It could cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars to turn your budget venue’s offering into your dream wedding space.

6. Wedding gown alterations. Most brides who buy a dress in bridal salons have their dress altered to fit them perfectly…a cost that’s not included in the price of the gown. Expect to pay $ 200-$ 400, and ask your bridal salon about the cost of alterations before you hand over your credit card for the gown.

7. Hair and makeup trial runs. If you’re budgeting for professional hair and makeup services, be sure to account for the cost of any trial runs too. Doing a trial run makes a lot of sense — it’s a great way to make sure you and your stylist are on the same page regarding your look — but it can cost around $ 100 for each trial session. We suggest having your trials on the day of your bridal shower or engagement photo session; if you’re paying the fee, you might as well put that full face of makeup or gorgeous blowout to good use!

8. Travel and accommodations. It’s not uncommon for the engaged couple to stay at a hotel the night before their wedding, and often the bride will pay for her bridesmaids to stay with her. And if you’re not getting married in your city or town, you may have to make multiple trips the city where your wedding will be held to look at venues or meet with vendors. Be sure to consider these costs when deciding where you’ll be married.

9. Packaging and labels. As you envision your wedding favors, be sure to account for the cost of all the elements of the mini gift. A huge bottle of local honey might cost $ 50 at the farmers market…but the mini jars, kraft paper labels, and calligraphy pen you’ll need to make it look fancy could add another $ 50 to the project. So price out all the favor packaging before you commit to anything.

10. Shipping. One of the best things about being a modern bride is shopping for your wedding online. While bigger retailers typically offer deals on shipping, smaller retailers (like those selling packaging, paper products, decor, and other party supplies) often have surprisingly pricey shipping. For example, the website that gives you the best deal on bulk jars for your honey favors might also charge $ 15 to ship them. As you research these online, be sure to keep track of what they charge for shipping.

You’re Probably Not Invited To This Wedding, Nor Do You Want To Be

Narrowing down a wedding guest list can be a harrowing experience for any bride and groom.

One bridezilla decided to let people know via Facebook exactly how she was trimming the fat from her nuptials with this handy-dandy list of who won’t be invited.

Begin jaw drop in three … two … one …

The list was posted by one very confused Redditor Monday, who — as of that time — was still unclear if they were actually invited to the wedding or not.

Our guess is not.

Kelly Rowland Probably Just Announced Her Pregnancy With This Adorable Instagram Snap

Congratulations may be in order for Kelly Rowland and hubby Tim Witherspoon!

On Tuesday, the 33-year-old Destiny’s Child alum posted what seems to be a rather coy — and cute! — pregnancy announcement:

“I’ll be stuntin like my daddy,” Rowland wrote in a caption that accompanied the suggestive snap.

Rumors that the newlywed “Kisses Down Low” singer may be expecting have been rife this week after she was spotted wearing a number of loose-fitting outfits.

“Considering she’s not one to keep her envy-worthy curves under wraps, we have to wonder if she’s using all that cleavage to distract from a possible baby bump,” wrote PerezHilton.com of the singer’s white and black ensemble at the “Think Like A Man Too” premiere Monday (pictured below).

Rowland and Witherspoon tied the knot last month in an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica. The singer told Us Weekly that the wedding was “perfect.”

Ladies, Your 7-Year-Old Self Probably Thinks You're A Loser

If your 7-year-old self met you today, she might be unpleasantly surprised that life didn’t turn out as she’d planned.

All-female comedy group Mister Sister Comedy created a video in which their younger selves confronted them in the present[-]day, and were seriously disappointed about their lack of boyfriends, husbands and fame.

“You’re all losers!” one young girl informs her grown-up counterpart.

Because a “cool hook-up situation” and an English lit degree don’t seem to satisfy these kids.
