The average person, in the United States, wears about 20% of the clothing because most of it as the result of an result of an impulse buy or doesn't fit correctly, according to Ray A. Smiththe Wall Street Journal.
"Generally you like it, but it's a little tight or a little baggy. And you think 'Oh well, it's a minor flaw. It won't bother me in the long run.' Then, that turns out to be the very thing that keeps you from wearing it," Miriam Tatzel, a consumer psychologist, told WSJ. "You think you might have a use for it in the future, but that day never comes."
The 20% number provided... Read More
Today let me share with you about the journey of life which, I undertook years back, after I left the school gate in 1976. Thirty eight years have certainly brought in lot many changes. I am just looking back and trying to assimilate the bygone days.
With dream in our eyes and innocence in our heart we leaped into this world not knowing that these 38 years would brazenly wipe the tender look.

There are times in everyone's lives that people may do or say things that they might regret because of how they angrily responded to a situation before they knew what took place. Sometimes, people should be more patient, understanding, and careful not to jump to the wrong conclusions when things happen.
The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her... Read More
The Business Insider (I believe it was the BI) had an article recently about the best hamburgers in the world. The best one according to them was in Israel. The article got me wondering why humans are so obssessed with chartacterizing what is "the best" of any particular item?
There certainly is a massive demand for these best of lists. This is evidenced by the fact that there are so many blog posts including in the "best" blogs such as the Huffington Post - that are titled the 100 Best of "this or that" in the world.
Is it even remotely possible to determine the best of anything... Read More
Police Chief Mike Berkemeier was admitted into hospital for a day-and-a-half after he ate a pot-laced pastry that he found in the refrigerator of his home.
The bizarre incident is reported in the Ohio, Logan Daily where "beleaguered from visiting his daughter in the hospital after a major traffic accident, Berkemeier went home to rest, but instead of fixing himself a sandwich, he reached for a piece of cake he found sitting in a container on his kitchen counter."
