3 Year Old Caught Red Handed Sprinkle Faced Lies to his Mom-
Did you ever lie to you parents, and they KNEW you were lying, and YOU knew they knew, but you just kept it up? Check out a video online of a little kid claiming over and over that he did NOT eat any of the ice cream sprinkles his mom left on the counter. It's great because you can see sprinkles spilled everywhere, and they're also all over his FACE. But he never admits to it.
If the Super Bowl had you wishing you were a millionaire pro athlete . . . well, tough luck. But "Forbes" magazine posted a list of the top ten NORMAL sports-related jobs you can get. Here they are from highest-paying to lowest.
#1.) Physical Therapist. A lot of teams have them on the payroll, but you can also do well if you open up a private practice. The median salary is $76,000.
#2.) Statistician. Like Jonah Hill's character in "Moneyball". The median salary is $73,000 a year, and the job market is on the rise.
#3.) Sports Psychologist. They help athletes prepare MENTALLY, so they can perform as well as possible on the field. The median salary is $69,000.
#4.) Sports Agent. They negotiate contracts and endorsement deals. (--Yes, like Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire"). Most of them make around $65,000 a year.
#5.) Public Relations Manager. They're the ones who deal with the media when an athlete gets arrested or does anything else that makes them look bad. The median salary is $58,000.
#6.) Advertising Executive. They sell and place ads for sporting events, which might mean ads at the stadium, or commercials that play during it. The median salary is $45,000 a year.
#7.) Event Coordinator. They take care of seating, security, and a lot of other behind-the-scenes stuff. The median salary for that one is also $45,000.
#8.) Broadcaster. The BIG ones make a lot. But when you factor in the ones for local events, the median salary is only $36,000.
#9.) Photojournalist. Meaning the guys who sit on the sidelines or in the end zone and take pictures. The median salary is only $29,000 a year, but the main perk is free tickets to every game.
#10.) Head Coach. Again, the ones for professional teams can make millions. But most of them coach at high schools and middle schools, and also have part-time jobs. The median salary is around $28,000 a year.
A surfer from Hawaii named Garrett McNamara might be the first person to ever ride a ONE-HUNDRED-FOOT WAVE. He did it on Monday off the coast of Portugal, although the people at Guinness World Records haven't confirmed it yet.
--McNamara also holds the CURRENT record, for a 78-foot wave he caught in the same location back in 2011. But this one definitely looks bigger.
(--Guardian.co.uk has the video. Search for "McNamara Rides World Record 100 ft Wave in Portugal." The wave at :41 and :45 might be it. CNN also posted a video, but it's not clear if that one shows the wave either.)
According to a recent relationship poll from Match.com, the most common thing couples fight over is each other's FAMILY. Apparently it accounts for about 45% of all fights.
--And another poll showed that 58% of people think fighting is INEVITABLE. So the key is to have PRODUCTIVE arguments. Here are their top five things that they say ARE worth fighting over.
#1.) Spending Habits. If you're really careful with money but the other person's not, it's worth bringing up, because it's something that will directly affect you once you have a joint bank account.
--That's assuming you don't ALREADY. In fact, more and more couples are opting for SEPARATE bank accounts now, PLUS a joint bank account.
#2.) How Healthy Each of Your Lifestyles Are. Meaning, if you're playing tennis five days a week and they smoke two packs a day, that might be a problem. And it's important to talk about it early, because it might eventually be a deal breaker.
#3.) The Other Person's Bad Temper. Especially if you're starting to worry about your own safety, physically OR emotionally. A short fuse doesn't usually show up in the first few months you're dating. But if it eventually does, it's worth talking about.
#4.) Bathroom Habits. Like going with the door open, or how messy the other person leaves the sink. The reason this fight IS worth having is because you'll almost definitely be able to resolve it.
--Either one person will change their habits, or both of you will change something. Just try to be light-hearted and funny while you're talking about it.
#5.) Being a Team. If it's starting to feel like you're NOT, then you should bring it up. Usually it's because one person feels like they've been offering a lot of support, but they haven't been getting it in return. Or, they don't feel appreciated.
--And it's a fight worth having, because if a relationship doesn't have some kind of team dynamic to it, it probably won't last.
We all like to BELIEVE we have a great BS detector. But most people aren't as good as they think. Because we all still lie, and we all still expect to get away with it.
--Luckily there are real ways to sniff out when someone's lying, and they're a lot more specific . . . and EFFECTIVE . . . than "going with your gut."
#1.) They change the way they talk. Everybody has a certain way of talking when they have nothing to hide. And when they start lying, it changes. They talk faster or slower, or the pitch of their voice goes up or down . . .
--Maybe they start saying "um" or they STOP saying it. But if something in their voice is out of the ordinary, it's a good sign they're not telling you everything they know.
#2.) They avoid saying "I." Research has shown that people are less likely to use personal pronouns when they're lying. It's a way of creating psychological distance between themselves and the lie.
#3.) They have an answer for everything. When you're telling the truth, there's no pressure to convince anyone. But someone who's lying doesn't want it to LOOK like they're lying . . . so they tend to hesitate LESS, because they want to appear sure of themselves.
#4.) They fidget unnecessarily. Not just nervous movements, but fiddling with random objects.
--If someone keeps rearranging their desk, or brushing dirt from their clothes, it might be an unconscious attempt to distract you from what's being said. Or maybe the guilt is just making them anxious.
--This one is tricky though, and the jury's out. Because it depends WHEN they do it, how OFTEN, and whether they normally did it before.
#5.) They keep saying, "To tell you the truth." A lot of liars have a tendency to keep proclaiming their honesty, with phrases like, "To tell you the truth," or "To be perfectly honest . . ."
Things like getting a good education and applying yourself are what MOSTLY determine how successful you are . . . but a lot of LITTLE things affect it too. And some of them you can't do anything about.
--Check out this list from Buzzfeed.com of seven things you can't control that determine how successful you are.
#1.) Having Thick Eyebrows. A study at Duke compared pictures of CEOs with pictures of low-level employees. And the CEOs were much more likely to have thick, bushy eyebrows.
--Apparently it's not just because most CEOs are old guys. Because when they compared the eyebrows of CEOs at different companies, the ones at the most-SUCCESSFUL companies had the BUSHIEST eyebrows.
#2.) Being Tall. A study in 2009 found that for every two inches taller someone is, they earn an average of $1,000 more per year.
--So in theory, if you were six inches taller, you'd make $3,000 more than you currently do.
#3.) Being Named Peter or Deborah. According to data pulled from LinkedIn.com, men are more likely to be the CEO of a company if their name is Bob, Peter, or Jack. And for women, Deborah, Sally, and Cynthia are best.
#4.) Being Blonde. Obviously anyone can be blonde if they can get to a pharmacy and have ten bucks.
--But a 2010 study in Australia found that blonde women make 7% more than brunettes on average. And it also found that blonde women are more likely to marry a RICH guy.
--The president of something called the International Blondes Association claimed it's because blondes are, quote, "more fun and outgoing, and men are more attracted to [them]."
#5.) Being a Psychopath. Maybe you've heard this one, but according to a book called "The Psychopath Test", CEOs are four times more likely to be psychopaths . . . which basically means they don't have the same emotions the rest of us do, and just care about themselves.
--In the general population, an estimated one out of every 100 people is a psycho. But among CEOs, it's FOUR TIMES that.
#6.) Being the Oldest Child. According to researchers in Norway, first-born children tend to earn more money, and have slightly higher IQs. And they're also more likely to be competitive in general.
#7.) Being Born in June. A survey done by England's Office for National Statistics found that more executives were born in June than any other month. And so were 23% of the last 22 Nobel Peace Prize winners.
