New Study Explains Why Some People Turn into A’Holes When They Drink

We’ve all got that one friend or as I like to call them, party asses. You invite them out for a few beers. Things are going well maybe you even decide to order a few appetizers and start texting more friends to see if they want to meet up with you.

You think you are having a great debate over whether or not Heather Locklear still has fake tits. All of the sudden, shit gets personal and you find yourself defending anything in your buddy’s path from why you wear patterned socks to whether or not you should punch your boss in the face.

The night ends abruptly because if it doesn’t it will end badly. You’re scratching your head trying to figure out why he gets this way and what the hell did you say to set him off again. Turns out, there is a reason behind it and it’s more than just those beers he threw back.

A new study released by the University of New South Wales in Australia suggests that just a couple of drinks can interfere with your prefrontal cortex—also known as the part of the brain that keeps you from doing something stupid or turning into a dickhead for no reason.

Using an MRI, researchers looked at the brain activity of 50 healthy, young guys after they had two vodka drinks. They were looking for blood flow to the prefrontal cortex. For those that did not have the cocktails the blood flow was greater to that area. And just to be sure they had them engage with a computer game that was competitive.

So yeah, the next time you are out and you see this coming on show them this blog in a non-threatening way, of course.

President’s Day: 12 Badass and Manly Facts About our Past Presidents 

12 Badass and Manly Facts About our Past Presidents

This coming Monday marks President’s Day and I thought it was a good idea to remind everyone that the holiday is not about furniture sales. Instead, I have dug up the most badass facts of our country’s past POTUS’.

John F. “Jack” Kennedy.  The Kennedys have a long political dynasty and a long history of hooking up with the hottest women in the world. In fact, FBI tapes later revealed that he didn’t just hook up with Marilyn Monroe. He was known to have bedded Angie Dickinson, Marlene Dietrich, Jayne Mansfield, lots of strippers and pretty much tapped every ass working in The White House.

Lyndon Baines Johnson.  LBJ was not nearly as good looking as JFK but he certainly had his share of hookups as well. He was reportedly smarter and more discreet about it and had an alert system set up in the Oval Office so he wouldn’t be literally caught with his pants down.

Thomas Jefferson.   Jefferson was notorious for having affairs with his female slaves. He reportedly carried on a thirty-eight-year affair with Sally Hemings. Interestingly enough, Sally was not just his slave but was the half-sister of his deceased wife.

Martin Van Buren.   Van Buren was the eighth President of the United States and served from 1837-1841. Like most Presidents he decided to document his legacy while in office by writing an autobiography. Some have speculated that he did not like his wife of 12 years after failing to mention her zero times in his autobiography.

John Tyler.    If you thought JFK had stamina, he had nothing on our 10th POTUS. Tyler won the title for fathering the most kids. After having eight kids with his first wife, he went to have seven with his second wife and he was in his 70s by the time his last kid was born. Busy guy.

Ronald Reagan.   When you think of the eighties it’s impossible not to remember President Ronald Reagan. Pre politics while he was still an actor, he won an award for the Most Nearly Perfect Male Figure. Not sure if that honor still exists today, but way to show those guns!

John Quincy Adams.   Adams enjoyed the many pleasures and luxuries in The White House. His favorite was quite simple, he loved to skinny dip in the Potomac every morning around 5 to relieve the stress associated with the job.

Andrew Jackson.    Jackson had quite the reputation while in office. In spite of his popularity he was the first President that an assassination attempt was made on and after the gun misfired, he chased the perp with a walking stick. He also participated in over 100 duels. One duel left a man dead and several others happened all in the name of defending his wife’s good name after she reportedly married him without divorcing from her first husband. He spent most of his life with two bullets still lodged in his body—one on his chest and one in his arm. That’s pretty badass.

Gerald Ford.   Believe it or not, President Ford put himself through college working as a model and later as a Forest Ranger at Yellowstone. Basically, a real-life Ranger Rick.

Calvin Coolidge.   Coolidge was a bit of a prankster. His favorite stunt was to set off all the buttons as his desk and then either hide or run like hell. After everyone lost their minds looking for him, he would jump out and declare that he wanted to make sure they were working.

Warren Harding.   This 29th President of the United States liked to take risks which usually involved gambling. During one of the many heated games of poker, he bet The White House china and lost.

John Adams.  Our second President was no stranger to playing dirty politics. When running against Jefferson his red meat and propaganda included rape, murder and incest if they voted for Jefferson instead of Adams. In the end, the became best bros and both died on the same day and just hours apart on July 4th.

One last fun fact about ALL OUR Presidents: not one of them was a single child. 

Could McDonald’s Fries be the Answer to Baldness

Could McDonald's Fries be the Answer to Baldness

A new study claims that McDonald’s salty, iconic fries could curb or at least help with hair loss and male baldness, according to Japanese researchers.

The study claims that it’s not the salt or potato but the oil that the fries are cooked in are the active ingredient. Apparently, some miracle method contains a chemical called dimethylpolysiloxane which is…you guessed it in the oil of those delicious fries at one of the world’s most-recognizable fast food joints.

A little known fact is that dimethylpolysiloxane is also found in silly putty, breast implants and that caulk you use on the tub.

Before you run out and start chowing down on some fries this study has only been tested on rats and President Donald Trump is on a steady diet of McDonald’s cuisine and still has to fight hair loss and maintain his quiff with the prescription drug Propecia. And making matters worse was an embarrassing video that surfaced this week of President Trump’s extent of hair loss. 

In fact, I have fought the good fight of male pattern baldness and whether I should throw in the towel on my hair. After a month on Rogaine, I found out that I would rather be bald than not be able to sexually perform at my peak. You can read the whole Rogaine story here

Unless you have the metabolism to support it, avoid eating shitty fries on a daily basis or you could be battling baldness and a big gut. For now, watch for the rats staying on or leaving the sinking ship.

5 Really Random Things that are a Turn On for Women  

5 Really Random Things that are a Turn On for Women

Last week, I decided to have a Netflix and Chill night with my girlfriend and I was totally freaked out after she grabbed me right when I walked in the door. Nothing freaky about that outside of the fact that I hadn’t shaved in over a week and had more like a 10-o-clock shadow and I was wearing sweatpants and a plan white t-shirt. I also hadn’t showered since I left the gym 12 hours earlier.

Normally, I would work hard to get her in the mood. We are talking a hot shower, a close shave, a shirt (with at least one button) and some jeans. I might even meet her at the door with a glass of wine. I’ve even considered answering the door naked because that would drive me wild if she did.

Turns out, most women don’t want to know or see how it’s hangin’, according to studies. Here is a list of what actually turns on women and it’s not what you think. Like most things with women, it’s the polar opposite of what you expect it to be.

1. Hands—Yes, women do care about a man’s hands. In particular, they really care about the length of a man’s ring finger. If their ring finger is longer than their index finger they are more likely to get laid, according to one Men whose ring fingers are longer than their index fingers are seen as better bets by women, one study found. Small hands? Yup, you may have a harder time having sex.

2. Don’t shave—Putting your razor away for around 10-days (based on average growth rate in men) produces the right amount of stubble to drive her crazy. However, she still cares if its properly groomed, so don’t go Grizzly Adams. Here’s a handy guide for beard styles and grooming. https://manscapeblog.com/2017/07/18/summer-beard-style-guide-for-men-2017/

3. Scent of a man—ditch the heavy cologne or manly body wash. Women are more turned on by the smell of a combo of Good-n-Plenty candy and cucumber. However, here is a guide of what you should eat that would make guys smell attractive.

4. Timing is everything—believe it or not there is a better time of day to have sex. One study claims it’s 3:00pm, so if the mood strikes you late afternoon squeeze it in!

5. Be nice—if you ever needed motivation to volunteer for a charity this would be it. Women that witness men being kind to others or even furry creatures is a major turn-on.

Women Less Stressed When Smelling Their Partner’s Scent on Clothing

Women Less Stressed When Smelling Their Partner's Scent on Clothing

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 was to be less stressed out on a daily basis, then you will want to get your hands on your partner’s laundry.

That’s right. According to new research released by the University of British Columbia, smelling an item of clothing such as a t-shirt or a hoodie actually drops your stress levels.

The impact was especially positive for women that buried their noses in one of their partner’s t-shirts. Apparently, it was the natural scent of their partner and not necessarily that hoodie you wore to a smoky bar or out to a hibachi restaurant.

In fact, the study factored in 96 heterosexual couples and the guys were asked to wear a clean t-shirt for a 24-hour period without applying any cologne or deodorant. More importantly, they were also asked not to smoke or ingest foods such as say…hot peppers or any foods that would change their natural odor.

The t-shirts were then frozen to seal in the scent. Study participants were then put through some of life’s most stressful situations such as a job interview. Thawed out t-shirts from their partner and a stranger were given to them to test hormone levels while experiencing stress.

When a woman smelled the shirt of her partner, her stress levels dropped significantly but when the t-shirt of a stranger was introduced her levels skyrocketed.

So the next time she complains about you leaving your t-shirt on the floor, ask her to put it on and let the stress melt away. Just kidding–show her this blog.
