This is news to us, but apparently, Hallmark has been selling cards under the "Troubled Relationship" category since 2008. Sentiments include "It's Not Perfect, But It's Ours," and "I Wish I Could Go Back," - because nothing says "Sorry I cheated" better than Hallmark. If your marriage is in trouble, you might consider giving your wife an "Unexpected Turns" Anniversary Card. ("Though this anniversary may come at a time when things are uncertain, your love will give you strength and see you through.")
Not to miss out on an opportunity for card-giving, the greeting card company is also selling cards geared towards long-distance relationships. (Wish I May, Wish I Might, Be Where You Are Tonight. Love, Chad.)
I'm not going to rail on this too much, because a cheesy mass-printed card is probably better than no card at all. But if your relationship is seriously that troubled, you better get some couples' therapy along with that $3.49 card. Or at the very least, a serious box of chocolate
The criminal mind can be cunningly brilliant—or stunningly foolish. You can safely put Emma Way of the U.K. into that second category. She’s the aggressive 21-year-old motorist who allegedly hit a cyclist while out for a drive in the city of Norwich, fled the scene, and bragged about it on Twitter on Monday.
“Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier—I have right of way he doesn’t even pay road tax! #bloodycyclists,” she tweeted.
Her admission was soon retweeted more than 300 times, inspiring angry responses and the nickname “twit and run girl” by fellow Twitter users. They also retweeted her brag to the social-media savvy Norfolk police department, who wrote back, "we have had tweets ref an RTC with a bike. We suggest you report it at a police station ASAP if not done already & then dm us." Though Way deleted her account, the ball kept rolling. The cyclist, Toby Hockley, a chef who had been taking part in an organized ride, came forward, and police said they tracked down Way and are progressing with an investigation.
On Wednesday, the police department told Yahoo! Shine there was “no further information at this time.” Way later apologized on ITV News, saying "It was a spur of the moment thing and I'm sorry," adding, "I don't want any cyclist to think I have hatred against them." Her lawyer said during the interview that she'd been interviewed by police but that no arrest had been made
What does a $100,000 prize-winning burger taste like? For Erin Evenson, who took home a giant check as the blue ribbon champ of Sutter Home's 2012 Build a Better Burger contest, it's cooked up from family memories and an ode to New York City's No. 7 train.
"This is my burger of a lifetime," the Brooklyn-based cook told Yahoo! Shine. "It kind of ties together my family [and] my love of New York City. When I finally put it all together I thought, 'That'll work.'"
Evenson, who grew up with parents who loved to forage for food, often ate watercress as a kid. "I always thought it was the absolute best watercress in the world until I moved to New York about 10 years ago. I went to a Thai restaurant in Woodside, Queens, and I had a fried crispy watercress salad there. And that just changed my mind entirely. 'OK, this is watercress.'" Evenson now jokingly calls the 7 train that runs to Queens "The Crispy Watercress Express."
Her winning burger recipe is a towering homage-with-a-twist to the food of Southeast Asia, made with crispy fried watercress, a sweet and spicy green-curry glaze, salty slices of pancetta, roasted cashews, and minted basil aioli. It didn't come together overnight. Evenson worked on the recipe for four to five hours a week for more than eight months. Her boyfriend was her informal judge and cheering section as she cooked her way through 12 different iterations of the recipe.
We can't quite decide what to make of this study. But in a recent experiment, researchers sought to find a link between women's tattoos and men's dating behavior.
The results seemed to indicate that men perceive tatted-up women as more approachable – and more promiscuous.
Nicolas Guéguen of France's Université de Bretagne-Sud led the study, with the help of 11 straight, college-aged women. All of the women had been rated as the most attractive out of a pool of 58 other women.
For the experiment, each of the 11 women went to a beach alone on 20 different occasions. Each time, she wore a red bikini and read a book. Half of those times, the woman also sported a fake, temporary lower-back tattoo. Not sure if this is relevant, but the tattoo was of a butterfly.
At any rate, researchers found that when the women were tattooed, they were much more likely to be approached by men
