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.

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.'”

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.
