Traits Of Those More Likely to Cheat

Anyone is capable of cheating, whether that be on a test, on your diet, or with Larry, the I.T. guy on the third floor who gives you more attention than your spouse.

Pretty much everyone agrees cheating is wrong, particularly if you hurt someone in the process (like a husband or wife). Yet, studies show over fifty percent of the population has either cheated or been cheated on, so either we don’t actually really think cheating on someone is bad or the promise of Larry’s sweat all over your body is worth jeopardizing your moral code.

Let’s be clear though – while it’s incredibly easy to ride off the human race as barbaric, selfish a-holes, that’s not true of everyone. Though it’s nearly impossible to know for sure if you are getting played by the person you love, there are certain indicators that make it more likely that your significant other has a wandering eye.

Always remember that actions speak louder than words and that if your S.O. exhibits any of these signs, you probably should go running for the hill (and not to the second-floor corner cubicle).



Gummy Dummies

Wouldn’t it be great if we could eat gummy bears for a week straight and rid our bodies of fat AND toxins, all while essentially enjoying hardened sugar juice?

One popular candy store promised just that: gummy bears that, when consumed for a week straight, would result in to-die-for abs of steel and a body so purified, Jesus himself would be envious.

The only problem? It was an April Fool’s prank. A candy brand named Sugarfina partnered with a juicing company based out of California to create unique-tasting candies. The advertisement was posted on April 1st, claiming it was a cleanse product that would have you feeling amazing and looking great in no time.

And because Americans tend to be superficial, gullible, AND lazy, they jumped on this opportunity so fast, the owner of Sugarfina said her phone was ringing off the hook. Clearly, consumers did not see the irony in the whole sales pitch.
