The Flyest Honeys (and Guys)
A site called misstravel.com polled 31,000 American women and 13,000 American men to determine the top 10 “sexiest” nationalities according to Gringos. Here are the results.
Brazilians place pretty high on both lists, while Americans, Spaniards, Swedes, and the French make appearances on both lists. I gotta say I agree with my brethren on Colombian women being in first place. Sofia Vergara alone is an epic super mega-babe to the third power who is still all kindsa fine even at 40 with a grown-up son. Sorry Mexicans, in my heart you are #1.
A 7-Minute work out using only a chair, a wall, and your own body weight could be intense enough to equal an hour at the gym according to an article that, according to its authors, is backed up by science.
Each exercise lasts only 30 seconds with 10 seconds to rest between them, but factoring in the fatigue, I’m not so sure I would last the full 7 minutes. I’ll definitely give it a try though.

Really? Oops, my bad! My servings usually look nothing like that, but it’s good to know.
This reminds me of an article I read about New York City implementing a bike-share program, like that of other large, forward-thinking cities, that is banning folks who weigh over 260 lbs from participating. The people behind the program argue that the bikes can’t take that much weight. Ouch!
Yet another reason to take these diet tips to heart.

20 Years of the WWW
On 30 April, 1993, CERN put the world wide web into the public domain. The first web page to be published has been restored to its original URL at http://info.cern.ch/. You can see a copy of the original web site here: http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html.
It’s not much to look at by today’s standards, but its like looking back in time. It’s just plain HTML without the CSS and flash elements that make websites look modern. It’s just text and links.
If you understand how the web works, you know that the WWW is a bunch of html documents (or pages) linked to each other via links. This first page contained links to other pages and so on and so forth. Today, the WWW is made up of approximately 14.3 billion such pages worldwide.
This web page is the Adam of the web, where it all started.
When I was eleven, I had a friend named Ric. We did many of the things typical pre-teens do. We hit home runs in the street, we raced fast and furiously with our toy cars, and like many youngsters before us, we got ourselves into terrible mischief. One such time, however, we bit off more than we could chew.
Cool. This site tells you how wealthy you are compared to every other person on the planet. For example, if you earn the median per capita U.S. income of just over $27,500, you’re in the top 1.4% of the richest people in the world. Likewise, if you earn minimum wage in the U.S. ($7.25/hour), you’re still in the top 7% of the richest people in the world.
Find out how you stack up against everyone else by clicking the title above or the link here. You’ll see, you’re much better off than you think.
