Bullying May Affect You As An Adult
I was teased mercilessly growing up. I was short, a little pudgy and spent the majority of elementary school playing with Beanie Babies during recess. I'm sure just about everyone got bullied at some point in their lives, and it probably has stuck with them. One British study confirms that while sticks and stones may break your bones, words might just have a lasting impact.
Actress And Socialite Joey Heatherton Accused Of Beating Neighbor With Shoe
Former Golden Globe nominee Joey Heatherton’s career has slowly faded away over the years, but her ability to generate headlines certainly has not. Since the early 1970s, she’s done everything from break up with an NFL star to bitch slap a government employee to stab her boyfriend.
China Just Made A 6 Minute Propaganda Film That Wants To Be Top Gun
You know how most of us laugh at throwback propaganda posters and wonder how our ancestors could have possibly been won over by images that were such blatant hard sells of patriotism? That collective American cynicism has altered the way the federal government tries to change public opinion, but in certain other countries, right on the nose is still the preferred method.
Scientists Think They Can Control The Weather Using Lasers
If you're anything like me, this winter was brutal on everything from your hair to your waistline to your car's engine. Most days I wanted to turn into Storm and find a way to make it 75 and sunny all the time and never see another snowflake. Maybe my weather daydreams aren't so far fetched. Researchers apparently are one step ahead of me and may have found a way to effectively control the weather using some pretty rad technology.
Doctors Keep Giving Kids Dangerous Codeine, Which Is A Terrible Move
Getting sick really sucks, but when you're a kid its always a million times worse. I think everyone has memories of that one illness they were always catching and the disgusting taste of fake grape flavoring in their cough syrup. Kids tend to suffer a lot more when they fall ill, even when it's only a minor bug, but it seems absurd to give them medicine that is potentially dangerous just because of potential benefits. A recent study found that unfortunately doctors have been doing just that.
It's Me Or It's I? Merriam-Webster Has The Answer
When you answer a phone, do you say “It is I,” or do you say “It’s me,”? Technically, you should say the first in formal settings, but then you may come off as pompous and potentially sound rude. Then again saying the second option may make you sound like some ill-educated buffoon in informal settings.
What's The Story With Hong Kong? Is It A Nation Or What?
You may know Hong Kong as an especially popular part of China, and if you thought that then you’re right...kind of. While Hong Kong is a part of China, it has its own government, currency, and Olympic team. It would be like if we said Texas is a part of the nation but it did everything differently.

Chimps Like A Firm Bed
Primates are really interesting creatures that are amazing to study. I can remember being a little kid and begging my mom to take me to the zoo to see the apes, monkeys chimps in their habitats. Anytime studies show that primates are like us, it gets my attention. Researchers observed chimpanzees at Uganda's Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve and learned that chimps are just as picky as humans, even down to their nighttime routine

Lindsay Lohan: I Was Pregnant And Miscarried While Shooting Reality Show

Don't Want Your Brain To Shrink? Then Don't Be Apathetic
The human brain is a strange thing. As we grow up, we start learning more and more and building our brain cells up to ultimately lose many of them in our college years. Our brains are constantly working and never get a break. A recent study has discovered how someone in the aging process may actually be losing brain volume and not even realize it.
The 5 Best Cartoon Bands Of All Time
Let's just be honest. Calling a group the "Best Cartoon Band" sounds like it's about as complimentary as singling out a group of guys for being a "Winning Movie Sports Team". But it's actually not.
