Typo No-Nos

In the age of technology, it’s kind of silly to get hung up on things like “your vs you’re” and “then vs than.” Sure, it’s easy to chalk up such spelling mishaps to stupidity (particularly if we don’t like the person).

But typos (particularly in texts) are so common and easy to do.

In fact, the only time a typo should REALLY frustrate you is if you’ve delivered the perfect rebuttal or joke via text and a huge typo ruins the entire flow. Now THAT is worth getting annoyed over.

According to this study, how you respond to typos says a lot about your personality trait. What do you think?



House Guests

People have all kinds of ideas on what makes a great house pet. From dogs to cats to hamsters to birds, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of what people will adapt for entertainment and companionship.

Spiders. Arachnids, in general, are rarely creatures people welcome into their homes. In fact, people go through great measures to make sure spiders stay as far away as possible.

But here’s the thing: like it or not, spiders are actually GOOD for your home and help balance out the eco-system within it.

So before you go throwing a boot at one of those six-legged house visitors, read this article first.
