Whazz up, Red Zeppelin here and my little space on the HOG interwebs. I’ll pontificate, spout off and find interesting stuff for you to read and view while ya kill time at work or not at work!
Let’s get started.
If you want to stay happily married ever after, scale back how much you use Facebook. People who use Facebook a lot are more likely to experience Facebook-related conflict with their romantic partner, which can lead to emotional and physical cheating, breakup and even divorce. That’s the word from researchers at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, the University of Hawaii at Hilo and St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, who jointly conducted a study about the use of Facebook and how it affects romantic relationships. Previous research has shown that when people who are in a romantic relationship are very involved with Facebook, they are more likely to monitor their partner’s page and comments, which can lead to feelings of jealousy. It gets worse. Active Facebook users are also more likely to connect with — or reconnect with — former lovers, and that has the potential to lead to emotional and physical infidelity. But this only applies to couples who have been together three years or less. This suggests that Facebook may be a threat to relationships that are not fully matured. On the other hand, participants who have been in relationships for longer than three years may not use Facebook as often, or may have more matured relationships, and therefore Facebook use may not be a threat or concern.
Random stuff to help your sex life:
Men who garden during the day get a performance boost in the bedroom at night. Regular bouts of weeding, digging and mowing will not only make your yard beautiful, but also serve as a kind of natural Viagra, revitalizing a man’s sex drive, London’s Daily Mail reports of a study of middle-aged men. How much gardening is necessary for this unusual benefit? The key is to burn up 1,000 calories a week through exercise to reduce impotence by 38%. That translates to doing any one of these five days a week:
- Gardening: 30 to 45 minutes a day
- Dancing: 30 minutes a day
- Cycling: 4 miles in 15 minutes
- Jogging or running: 1.5 miles
