People Are Sharing The Unwritten Rules Of Life, And Like 80% Of People Don’t Follow Them


Someone shared their “unwritten rules” of life and a bunch of people responded in the comments with super useful tidbits we should all listen to. Here's what they said: 1."When you approach a closed door in an office or building, it’s quite likely someone closed it for a reason (e.g. to prevent annoying air currents or noise). So when you have gone through the door, SHUT IT BEHIND YOU! If you're not sure, ask the nearest person." 2."When you take small children to a restaurant, actively do things to stop them making lots of noise. If they screech or loudly bang cutlery on the table, it's because they're bored. Tell them to stop, or take them outside and amuse them, but don't just ignore it. Everyone else has to endure the racket." 3."When waiting at the supermarket checkout, move down with your shopping. This will allow the person behind to start unloading their groceries. Do not take an undue amount of the cashier's time, even if you know them. The person behind might not have time to hear your personal conversation." 4."When food shopping for frozen items, how about closing the sliding fridge door when you are finished?!" 5."When walking on sidewalks, keep to the right." 6."If there are two lanes at a red light and you are going straight, get in the left lane and leave the right lane open for people turning right." 7."If someone is on the phone, and it looks like it’s an important call, don’t hover and stare at them until they get off (unless it’s something of upmost urgency you need to discuss). This, of course, does not apply to cashiers if they’re staring at you while you’re holding up the line because you’re talking on the phone with your friends about what you did over the weekend!" 8."If someone talks slow, don't finish the sentence or interrupt them. I process information slower, and people do this to me all the time." 9."If you’re pulling out of a parking lot or side street and you’re turning left, for the love of God, DO NOT STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD TO TURN." 10."When a plane lands, do not immediately get out of your seat and get your belongings out of the overhead compartment and proceed to stand in the aisle." 11."Please always wash your hands after using the restroom! It’s shocking to still see so many people leave right after their call of nature."



What His Text Response Time Says About His True Feelings For You


An expert is revealing what a man’s text response time says about his feelings for you. If he texts you right away, she says it could be that he’s very into you, or he might be very into his phone. If he takes a little more time like in a half-hour or less, it could mean that he’s even more into you than if he replies right away. While if he texts you after an hour or two it means he could be thinking about whether he’s ready for a long-term relationship with you. If he texts you more than a few hours later it’s not a good sign but if he doesn’t text you until the next day, it’s very likely he’s not that into you.



Will Gyms Go The Way Of Arcades And Movie Rental Stores?


Gyms could go the way of arcades and movie rental stores and disappear due to a pandemic which has reshaped how Americans exercise, and the fitness industry. COVID has also led to the growth of a new era of high-tech home workout equipment and virtual classes. Thousands of small fitness centers and studios across the US that were forced to close a year ago now are gone for good and many more are struggling.

Nick Cannon Said He Doesn't "Subscribe" to Monogamy, Defends His Choice to Father 7 Children With 4 Different Women


"Masked Singer" host Nick Cannon opened up about having 7 children with different women. He said on his radio show that he was having his children "on purpose.” Nick has fathered four children this year alone, including twins Zion and Zillon with DJ Abby De La Rosa. Nick pushed back against people who question why he has several partners with whom he shares children. He said, "That’s a Eurocentric concept when you think about the idea that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life. Really that's just to classify property when you think about it. When you go into that mindset...just the idea that a man should have one women — we shouldn't have anything. I have no ownership over this person.” He also said, “I've never subscribed to that mentality. I understand the institution of marriage, but if we go back to what that’s about, that was to classify property. One father gave another man his daughter for land. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers. We created a beautiful entity.” Nick went even further to say that "women are the ones that open themselves up and say 'I would like to allow this man in my world. And I will birth this child.' It ain’t my decision. I’m following suit.” He claims his partners know about his stance on monogamy. He said, “I’m not going around like, 'Who am I gonna impregnate next?'" He also added that he believes "the woman is always the one who leads and makes decisions.” Nick also shared his deep love for his children by saying, "It's so amazing. I really just love being around my kids and that youthful energy it feels like you get to relive every time.”



‘The Bachelorette’ Season 17 Finale Recap: Katie Thurston Gets Engaged to Blake Moynes

Katie Thurston made decisions about her relationships with Blake Moynes and Justin Glaze during the season 17 finale of "The Bachelorette" after Greg Grippo’s exit.

This revelation came at an inconvenient time as Justin was waiting in the wings for his own overnight date. Rather than lead on the investment sales consultant, Katie chose to end things with him. Blake initially made it seem like he wasn’t going to ask her to marry him, but eventually, he did, and she said yes. Katie then gave Blake her final rose, and they rode away together on horses.

Nearly 3 in 5 People NEVER Wear Sunscreen When Outside


The average American is in a good mood for 59 percent of summer. Yet most people admit they don’t protect their skin with sunscreen when enjoying the outdoors. That’s according to a poll of 2,000 people, which finds that they’re in a good mood for 53 out of the 90 days of summer, largely because of the warmer weather. During the summer, Americans love to be outdoors, with the most common outdoor mood-boosters being flowers blooming (54%), seeing the trees budding (46%), and taking a walk in the park (44%). However, with so much time spent outside, it’s no wonder that 41 percent of the poll say they often forget to bring warm-weather essentials when they go out. The most frequently left behind items include sunscreen (25%), sunglasses (22%), and bug spray (21%). Despite 56 percent of respondents claiming that they’ve become more health-conscious over the past year, 57 percent admit they never wear sunscreen while they’re outside. 96 percent of people say they don’t wear sunscreen every day. Only 58 percent think it should be worn year-round, even health experts call sunscreen a year-round essential. MORE: ** 55 percent say their dermatologist would not be happy with their sunscreen habits. However, 58 percent of respondents say they have better sun care habits now than they did when they were younger. 64 percent of people say they wish their sunscreen had skin care benefits and 51 percent don’t think their sunscreen of choice hydrates their skin.



Alex Trebek's Likely 'Jeopardy!' Successor Accused of Mistreating Colleagues

Mike Richards, who is in line to become the new host of “Jeopardy!,” is defending himself against allegations that he mistreated colleagues at another game show. Richards, who is currently the executive producer of “Jeopardy!,” said “no final decisions have been made” about the next host. The appearance of Richards picking himself to succeed Alex Trebek has generated some backlash. But Richards said, “The choice on this is not my decision and never has been.” The ultimate decision-maker is Tony Vinciquerra, chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. The Daily Beast wrote last week that “multiple women sued ‘The Price Is Right’ during Mike Richards’ tenure as executive producer, and their stories paint an unsavory picture of Mike. One of the lawsuits alleged that Richards had a hostile reaction when one of the models on the game show became pregnant. She was booked less often and was repeatedly taken out of acts she would have appeared in before. She sued in 2010. The case was eventually settled in 2016. In a memo to the team at ‘Jeopardy!’, Richards wrote: “I want you all to know that the way in which my comments and actions have been characterized in these complaints does not reflect the reality of who I am or how we worked together on ‘The Price is Right.’ I know firsthand how special it is to be a parent. It is the most important thing in the world to me. I would not say anything to disrespect anyone’s pregnancy and have always supported my colleagues on their parenting journeys.”



Judge Denies Britney Spears' Request to Have Father Immediately Axed From Conservatorship


Britney Spears’ request to move her hearing up to a sooner date in an effort to remove her father Jamie as her conservator, has been denied. The judge also denied her request to immediately suspend Jamie as her conservator. Britney will now have to wait at least a month to potentially be free of her father, with the current agreement remaining until the September 29th hearing. Meanwhile, Britney continues to reference the conservatorship battle on her Instagram page, and said yesterday that she will be “posting less” from now on after it had been suggested she should be more “cautious” about what she shares. MORE: On Friday, Jamie Spears fought back against attempts to remove him from the conservatorship that controls her money and affairs, saying there are “no grounds whatsoever” to do so and describing the singer as “mentally sick”. Jamie claimed in a court filing that Britney is struggling so much with her mental health that court-appointed professional Jodi Montgomery, who overseas Britney’s life decisions, recommended hospitalizing her on emergency psychiatric hold. Montgomery and her lawyer said in response that Jamie “misrepresented and manipulated' the call to use it to his own advantage.”
