Happy Valentine's Day! Those with better sex lives more likely to cheat

posted Feb 14, 2018, 5:13 AM by Ryan Quinn

Just in time for Valentine's Day, a new study of newlyweds reveals those happiest with their sex lives at home are also more apt to cheat on their partners.

Scientists at Florida State University polled 233 newlyweds over three years to try to see what makes some people cheat. While some may think spouses seeking sparks in the sack are more likely to stray, the study revealed that people who have a satisfying sex life "felt more positive about sex in general," and therefore more likely to cheat.

Other findings confirmed some myths, specifically that age and attractiveness has a lot to do with things. However, younger people were more likely to cheat, as are women who were less attractive.

Conversely, men whose partners are less attractive were more likely to cheat, according to the study.

So how do you stay in your lane, when it comes to fidelity? FSU psychology researchers Jim McNulty, Andrea Meltzer, Anastasia Makhanova and Jon Maner found that Attentional Disengagement and Evaluative Devaluation does the trick.

Simply put: the former is finding a way to distract yourself from the looks of a person who is more attractive than your current partner; the latter is the ability to psychologically and subjectively determine that a physically attractive person is less attractive than they objectively are.

The study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

84-year-old woman arrested for allegedly shooting at noisy children

You can think it, but you can't do it.

An 84-year-old Northern California woman is accused of shooting at her neighbor's children because she said they were being too noisy.

The Redding Record Searchlight reports that Betty Frances Sanders of Anderson was arrested Friday, according to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.

Sanders complained that her neighbor's three children, who are between the ages of 8 and 10, were being too noisy. The children were riding their motorcycles around their house.

Angela Rollins, mother of the children, told deputies that she and her husband were in the front yard with the children when Sanders and her husband approached the fence between their properties. Sanders complained that Rollins' children were being noisy. Deputies said it escalated into an argument and Sanders fired her handgun at Rollins and her family 20 feet away.

Deputies confirmed that no one was injured during the incident.

Sanders was arrested on suspicion of assault with a firearm and child endangerment. Her bail was set at $50,000.

Debt before diet: Survey says people would rather gain a grand in debt than 10 pounds

posted Feb 13, 2018, 5:18 AM by Ryan Quinn

What stresses you out more: a few extra pounds, or a few extra credit card bills?

A new survey from the online credit checker Credit Karma found that nearly two in five Americans would rather take on about $1,300 in additional debt than gain 10 pounds.

The poll of more than 2,100 Americans revealed that while half of Americans vowed to eat better in the new year, only about a third sought to do something about their debt. In fact, some 38% said they'd take on new debt to prevent a ten-pound weight gain. Men were more willing than women to take on more debt -- up to $2,000 -- to keep their weight where it is. Women polled drew the line at $692 to keep that extra weight off.

On the other end of the scale (get it?), most people were willing to gain 10 pounds if it meant they could shed $1,000 worth of debt.

While on the subject of gender, about half of the women polled said they wanted to spend less and save more in 2018. Only 38% of men polled said they wanted to do the same.

Even more: To get rid of their debt, one in five people polled would skip sex for a year. More women than men were willing to take the abstinence route by nearly two-to-one. Also, a third would skip chocolate or alcohol to be debt free.

Finally, 38 percent of those polled said they'd exercise six times a week for a year to have their debt deleted, while 45% said they'd clean their bathroom every week to have their red ink cleaned.

20-Foot Mural Created For Woman Looking For Missed Love Connection on Subway

posted Feb 12, 2018, 5:19 AM by Ryan Quinn

What do you do after you have a strong attraction to someone you see on the subway, but get off before you've had the chance to meet or exchange numbers?

Devin Custalow, 25, and her roommate and friend of seven years, Hilary Schumacher, were on the subway in New York City, returning home from Coney Island when the two spotted a "cute guy standing on the platform," Custalow, told ABC News.

"We kept looking at each other and making eye contact. We were kind of giggling about it," she said.

Schumacher, 25, verified this.

"They kind of were flirting with their eyes for a while," she told ABC News. "The chemistry was unreal. Honestly, it was really funny just seeing them interact."

Eventually however, the two women had to get off at their stop in Clinton Hill while the cute guy stayed on the train.

Schumacher said she saw the unknown guy look back at her roommate. "He was so disappointed," she added.

So Custalow decided to post on the “Missed Connections” message board on Craigslist.

Park MGM, a new Las Vegas hotel, wanted to help Custalow in her efforts to meet that guy on the subway. After reading her post, which was titled, "Yellow shoes guy on the G train," the hotel decided to create a 20-foot mural in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to help.

The post concludes with, "If you're out there, meet here on Valentine's Day, 2/14 at 1:00 p.m."

Patrick Miller, president and COO of Park MGM, explained to ABC News why they decided to help Custalow.

"We found Devin's story to be equal parts heartwarming and relatable," he said in a statement. "After hearing this, we felt we had to do something... If it's meant to be, she'll find the guy in the yellow shoes."

Are you guilty of Micro-Cheating?

posted Jan 31, 2018, 5:10 AM by Ryan Quinn   [ updated Jan 31, 2018, 5:28 AM ]

Perhaps you'd never dream of having an affair, but it's possible you could be micro-cheating.

Experts say that "micro-cheating" is the term for things like flirting with someone other than your spouse, or maybe leaving a larger-than-average tip for an attractive server, or perhaps a series of small acts, like confiding in someone outside the relationship, or not mentioning you're in a relationship so as to appear single.

Some experts say that micro-cheating is almost as bad as a full fledged affair. What are your thoughts?

Emotional Support Peacock Denied Entry On United flight

posted Jan 31, 2018, 4:26 AM by Ryan Quinn   [ updated Jan 31, 2018, 4:27 AM ]

The proliferation of service animals and emotional support animals traveling on airplanes has increased steadily over the last few years, but it seems like some emotional support animals strain credibility.

According to NJ.com, that’s what happened Wednesday at Newark Liberty International Airport when United Airlines turned away Brooklyn artist Ventiko and her big bird Dexter, after she tried to bring the service peacock on board her flight to Los Angeles.

Ventiko bought the colorful bird -- which has its own Instagram account --its own seat, but that didn’t matter.

United Airlines spokesperson Andrea Hiller said, "The animal did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its size and weight. We explained this to the customer on three separate occasions before they arrived at the airport."

Hiller said United has seen a 75 percent year-over-year increase in passengers bringing emotional support animals on flights, as well as an uptick in incidents involving those animals while flying.

Effective March 1, Delta airlines announced it is cracking down on the abundance of emotional support animals by requiring owners to provide more information -- proof of good health and up-to-date immunizations with 48 hours notice -- before their animal can fly in the passenger cabin, including an assurance that it's trained to behave itself. Delta says the crackdown is a response to a rise in complaints about animals biting passengers or soiling cabins.
