Kim and Kanye Already Hate Being Married 

 

It’s Day 48

in the marriage of KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST, and the word is, it’s not going well.  A source says, quote, “Kanye now recognizes that Kim’s main interests are shopping and lounging around by a pool.  When they actually are together, they’re miserable!  It’s really concerning to Kanye that Kim doesn’t even want to try to experience new things.”

It started with the honeymoon in Ireland.  A source says Kim was BORED . . . quote, “Kim complained and sulked the entire time.  Kanye tried to arrange tours of local museums, but she wanted nothing to do with it.”

“He isn’t really the lounge-by-the-pool kind of guy.  Kanye now recognizes that Kim’s main interests are shopping and lounging around by a pool . . .

What’s More Important in Your Daily Life:  Your Phone or Your Toothbrush?

 

 

A new survey found people feel their phones are just slightly less important in their daily life than a TOOTHBRUSH . . . and just as important as deodorant.  For people under 24, their cell phone is MORE important than either of those things.

 

 

Now you can just text people and never actually share physical space with them.  And maybe that’s a good thing . . . because our cell phones are just as important to us as our personal hygiene.  Maybe even MORE important.

 

 

A new survey asked people to rank different things based on how important they are in daily life.

 

 

The toothbrush ranked slightly higher than the cell phone . . . and deodorant TIED with the cell phone.

 

 

For people under 24, the cell phone was ranked MORE important than either their toothbrush or deodorant.

 

 

13% of people say they could only last one hour without their phone . . . and another 34% say they could only last 24 hours.

Work friends are an interesting breed.  You have the camaraderie of being in the trenches, getting held down by The Man, and you spend a lot of time together.  But are you REALLY friends?

 

 

A new survey by LinkedIn tried to figure out how valuable work friendships are, and basically found that we LOVE our work friends . . . but would happily screw them over for our own benefit.

You Can Buy Travel Insurance That Pays $1,000 if You Get Stuck on the Tarmac

You can now buy travel insurance that pays out if your FLIGHT gets delayed.  It’s costs $25, and pays $50 if you’re delayed more than two hours.  But if you get stuck on the TARMAC for over two hours, it pays a THOUSAND bucks.  You also get $500 if you miss a connecting flight, and $1,000 if they lose your bags.

 

 

Having your flight delayed is one of the most annoying things about traveling.  But will people suddenly start HOPING it happens?  Maybe.

 

 

Berkshire Hathaway has a new travel insurance policy that costs $25 per person, per flight.  And if you get delayed more than two hours, you get 50 bucks.

 

 

Which is OKAY.  But the big bucks come if you board the plane, and get delayed on the TARMAC for more than two hours . . . which pays a THOUSAND DOLLARS.

 

 

You also get $500 if you miss a connecting flight because of a delay . . . $500 if it takes more than 12 hours for your luggage to show up . . . and $1,000 if the luggage gets lost or stolen.

A Guy Camped Out So He’d Be the First Person to Buy Weed in Washington . . . and Got Fired When His Boss Found Out

 

 

A 30-year-old guy camped out overnight this week to be the first person in Spokane, Washington to buy weed legally.  And when the local news covered it, his boss FIRED him.  But the guy says he has no regrets, and he’s hoping to land his dream job . . . working at a marijuana dispensary.

 

 

On Monday, a 30-year-old security guard named Mike Boyer showed up at the first pot dispensary in Spokane, Washington 19 HOURS before it opened . . . and camped out overnight so he’d be the first person in Spokane to buy legal weed.

 

 

He was in a tie-dyed shirt . . . obviously . . . which he says he’s, quote, “Been rockin’ [for] about 12 years.”  We know this because the local news did a story on him while he was parked on the sidewalk . . . with Doritos and Mountain Dew on hand.

 

 

But when his BOSS saw the story the next morning . . . he FIRED HIM.  Mike says getting canned was definitely a “buzzkill”, but refused to let it ruin a huge day . . . so he smoked a bunch of pot, then slept for ten hours.

 

 

He says he has no regrets, and his reasoning is pretty solid.  Quote, “A man can always get a job.  But a man can only be the first person to buy recreational cannabis in Spokane once.”

 

 

He posted his resume on Craigslist on Wednesday, with the title, “Lost My Job – Still #1 Though!”  And he hopes getting fired is a blessing in disguise that’ll lead to his dream job . . . working at a marijuana dispensary.

 

 

Actually, he described it as “EVERYBODY’S” dream job.  (KXLY / Vocativ / Craigslist)  (Mike is AMPED to do interviews.  You can call him at 509-202-5528.  Check out some photos here.)

 

 

 

The Americans Who Are Happiest With How They Look Are . . . People in Their 80s?

 

All conventional wisdom says your attractiveness peaks when you’re young.  Unfortunately, that’s also when you’re the most insecure.  Wondering when that’s going to stop and you’re finally going to be confident about how you look?

 

 

According to a new survey, the Americans who are happiest with how they look are . . . people OVER 80.

 

 

74% of men over 80 are always happy with their physical appearance, as are 67% of women over 80.

 

For comparison, 5% fewer men and 10% fewer women 18 to 24 are always happy with their physical appearance.  And we’re LEAST confident in how we look in our late 50s.

People over 80 are more likely to love how they look than people in any younger age group.

And at every age, men are more confident about their physical appearance than women.  The only place it evens out is after age 85.

FULL STORY:  On Monday, a 30-year-old security guard named Mike Boyer showed up at the first pot dispensary in Spokane, Washington 19 HOURS before it opened . . . and camped out overnight so he’d be the first person in Spokane to buy legal weed.

 

 

He was in a tie-dyed shirt . . . obviously . . . which he says he’s, quote, “Been rockin’ [for] about 12 years.”  We know this because the local news did a story on him while he was parked on the sidewalk . . . with Doritos and Mountain Dew on hand.

 

 

But when his BOSS saw the story the next morning . . . he FIRED HIM.  Mike says getting canned was definitely a “buzzkill”, but refused to let it ruin a huge day . . . so he smoked a bunch of pot, then slept for ten hours.

 

 

He says he has no regrets, and his reasoning is pretty solid.  Quote, “A man can always get a job.  But a man can only be the first person to buy recreational cannabis in Spokane once.”

 

 

He posted his resume on Craigslist on Wednesday, with the title, “Lost My Job – Still #1 Though!”  And he hopes getting fired is a blessing in disguise that’ll lead to his dream job . . . working at a marijuana dispensary.

 

 

Actually, he described it as “EVERYBODY’S” dream job.  (KXLY / Vocativ / Craigslist)  (Mike is AMPED to do interviews.  You can call him at 509-202-5528.  Check out some photos here.)

The Americans Who Are Happiest With How They Look Are . . . People in Their 80s?

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  A new survey found the Americans who are happiest with how they look are . . . people over 80.  They’re more likely to love how they look than people in any younger age group.

 

 

FULL STORY:  All conventional wisdom says your attractiveness peaks when you’re young.  Unfortunately, that’s also when you’re the most insecure.  Wondering when that’s going to stop and you’re finally going to be confident about how you look?

 

 

According to a new survey, the Americans who are happiest with how they look are . . . people OVER 80.

 

 

74% of men over 80 are always happy with their physical appearance, as are 67% of women over 80.

 

 

For comparison, 5% fewer men and 10% fewer women 18 to 24 are always happy with their physical appearance.  And we’re LEAST confident in how we look in our late 50s.

 

 

People over 80 are more likely to love how they look than people in any younger age group.

 

 

And at every age, men are more confident about their physical appearance than women.  The only place it evens out is after age 85.
