No doubt we are all used to texting, having 1-on-1 conversations, using Facebook and at the same time working on an assignment. We like to say we are multi-taskers. We’ve got all the power to stay ahead. I can read my e-book, cook, clean, and talk on the phone all at the same. But really, who the heck am I kidding. Who are we all kidding?! The person on the other end is annoyed, cleaning gets half-assed, the chicken comes out dry, and the material only gets skimmed over.
Maybe it’s only me and I do a terrible job at juggling, but I doubt that. The infographic shows that an estimated $450 billion are lost annually due to people not being immersed in the task at hand. The lack of immersion excluded, our minds are elsewhere. On average we are looking at our cellphones 150 times daily! We even have syndromes that define the sensation of feeling like you got a text.
This country’s economy is doing better, sure. But what are we doing to the companies that we work for if during our briefings and conferences we are using our electronic devices to do completely unrelated things. Our efficiency, even our IQ, falls while trying to multitask. So, if we are really trying to save time by multi-tasking, or just find momentary enjoyment, why don’t we save ourselves some more time and focus on one thing at a time. That way, there is more time for fun later. [via]

When a man loves a woman they have sex. Simple as that. Let’s look at some sexy facts.
56% of men claim to have had sex at work. The other 44% can only hope. They’re the ones that hear about their coworkers bumpin’ uglies in the office, and they’re extremely jealous about it.
Women talk dirty more often than men in the bedroom. Ladies, please. Get your minds outta the gutter and just really think about what you’re saying.
Allergies getting to you? Have some sex. Easy peezy, lemon sqeezy, no more stuffy nosies!
If you’re impotent, and you’re married, you very well could be divorced on those premises in some 24 states in the U.S. People want their babies.
Only 17% of women are likely to have an orgasm during sex. What are we doing fellas? Step it up.
The average man will ejaculate 18 quarts of sperm in his life. That’s just pretty gross actually.
The average erect penis size is 5 inches, while the smallest is an impressive 1 centimeter. (I’ll keep him in my prayers.)
Dudes, if you want to live a longer life, have a lot of good sex. You can live past 80. Just because you can put part of your body inside of another person, you can live longer. Hooray for science!
I think I’ve covered the important bases, so take it all the way home and finish reading the rest! [via]

I just played a game of war and mental violence. Beer pong. I didn’t give a shit from the beginning, then soon into the match I realized that everyone else gave 500 shits, that is way too many shits, so I kind of panicked.
The panic started when my partner threw the ball and before the ball left his hand it went past the table, thus crossing the sacred line of beer pong. He made the shot into the cup and the guys got all nervous but refused to speak to us about the issue, therefore they started yelling to the host that we had cheated. We didn’t even know what we had done.
I assumed that we had displayed some physical insult that I wasn’t hip enough to understand, I guess that I was right. To make matters worse, my partner and I forgot to remove a cup after the opposing team had scored. We did not realize that this cup had become, what in the beer pong world is called a “death cup,” this means that if the other team makes a shot in that cup a second time then we lose the game.
They were consistently staring at us like we were growing horns when finally the host, approached us and told us to turn around so that he could point out the “death cup” to the other team. With a stare that would have been appropriate for a situation of life-or-death, he made the final, fatal statement: “if they would have made it, y’all would have lost THE ENTIRE GAME.” Let me remind you that we were playing with water, not beer. Wish I would have had this guide that night! [via]

A few years ago, I was all about adding Tabasco hot sauce to my food. I even carried a little miniature bottle of it in my backpack in college. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I became obsessed with Sriracha. So much so, that I even posted an infographic about it. But alas, I have just recently become obsessed with a new hot sauce after a co-worker donated it to the office kitchen last week. It’s name is Tapatio hot sauce, and we have become inseparable. I have a bottle in my pantry, my purse, and at my work desk so that wherever I decide to eat, I’ll always be able to add a little Tapatio pizzazz to my meal. Never heard of Tapatio, or dare I say, even tried it?! If you’re ready to take your taste buds to a whole other level of flavor, I suggest you break off your commitment to your current hot sauce and give Tapatio a taste. You will not be disappointed!

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s this thing called Spotify that everyone’s using these days. Lately, there’s been a lot of grumbling in the music community about the impact of streaming services like Spotify — mainly being that artists are given a pretty insulting amount of compensation. It’s so incredibly convenient though, and considering that fact, it’s free, how can you really blame anyone for taking advantage of it?
We really have come a long way since we were hand cranking those wax cylinders on our phonographs so that we could feast our ears on some vaguely musical hissing sound that came from a horn. Streaming is a relatively new phenomenon, and it’s pretty hard to argue that any advance in technology has ever negatively impacted the progression of music in the big picture.
So, maybe, there is hope. But wait, is vinyl making a come back? No, not really. People are definitely buying a whole lot more records than they were seven years ago, but the vast majority of people still listen to music via digital format. There are people who have invested exorbitant amounts of money in hi-fi equipment to supposedly prove that their records sound better than your iPod.
Your run-of-the-mill Crosley turntable that you picked up from Urban Outfitters definitely doesn’t though. So what gives? Is this really just a result of hipsters being nostalgic for a time they didn’t even know? Maybe, but my guess is that it’s a reaction against the lack of sentimentality that digital music has, and what fills that void better than owning the huge physical artifact that is the vinyl LP of the music you cherish?
