There's a new list of the top 100 inventions of the last 100 years. It includes the big ones, like TVs, computers, batteries, cell phones, and the Internet. Some ones you might not expect, like the lie detector, the Leatherman tool, and the helicopter. And some VERY questionable calls, like Beats by Dre headphones, and the Kindle Fire.
According to a new survey, 14% of men are MORE body conscious than their wives or girlfriends, and actually spend MORE time trying to get themselves ready for a vacation. The survey also found 9% of men have CANCELLED a vacation because they were insecure about their bodies.
According to a new survey, 64% of women say they can't afford to be fashionable, 41% have to opt for the sales rack, and 19% have intentionally DAMAGED an item just to get a discount on it. Also, the average woman spends $85 a month on clothing, but thinks that being fashionable would require $100 MORE than that.
A credit counseling company just released a list of the STRANGEST excuses people have given to explain their bad credit score. A few of the best ones are: "I declared bankruptcy so I could be debt-free when I buy a house" . . . "Construction workers moved my mailbox" . . . and "I accidentally married the devil, she gave me gout, and ruined my credit score."
