Divorce Makes You Die Early
Newser
A new review of 32 studies published over 27 years finds that divorced adults have a 23% greater chance of dying early than married couples do, which is similar to the risks posed by starting to smoke or drink, gaining weight, or stopping exercising. And it's even worse for divorced men, who face a 31% increased risk of early death, compared to 18% for women. 1/10/14 2:02pm ET

There have been 32 studies about this. They only needed one but everyone kept dying.

1 in 6 Americans is a Binge Drinker
Newser
Researchers from the CDC have found that 38 million Americans, roughly a sixth of the adult population, are binge drinkers who over-indulge an average of 4.4 times a month. A binge is defined as five or more drinks in the space of two hours for men, and four or more drinks for women. Wisconsin has the highest percentage of binge drinkers, at 25.6%. 1/11/14 6:22pm ET

Facebook Makes You Miserable
Miller-McCune
A new study suggests that Facebook may be skewing the way its users perceive their lives. It finds those carefully selected photos of cheerful, contented people cumulatively convey a self-esteem-shattering message: Our lives are fantastic! What's wrong with you? 1/12/12 5:03pm ET

Merriam-Webster Names 'Pragmatic' Word of the Year
Newser
Merriam-Webster has chosen 'pragmatic' (meaning practical and logical) as the word of 2011, due to how often it was looked up on their online dictionary -- particularly before August's debt ceiling vote and during the congressional super-committee meetings. Runners-up include austerity, ambivalence, insidious, didactic, diversity, capitalism, socialism, and vitriol. 12/15/11 2:10pm ET

Antonyms include: impractical, illogical, Congress

Men Think Hotter Women More Interested
MSNBC
A new study to be published in Psychological Science finds that the more attractive a woman is to a guy, the more likely he is to overestimate her interest in him. The study also finds that less attractive guys (based on the women's ratings) are even more likely to think the most attractive women are hot for them, while more attractive men are more realistic. 12/15/11 3:25pm ET
ButterMan
Men think hotter women more interested. Probably because they don't care if the uglies are.

Trump Pulls Out of Own Debate
ABC News
Donald Trump has backed out of moderating a Republican debate because he's still considering running for president as an independent. Trump said the GOP candidates are ''very concerned'' that he will announce an independent candidacy after 'The Apprentice' ends and won't agree to a debate with him unless he rules that out -- which he won't do. 12/13/11 4:54pm ET

Babies Don't Buy Your Bullshit

Babies are known to copy adults, but a new study shows that they choose whether to imitate an adult's actions based on how credible they think the adult is. If an adult has previously displayed unreliable or dishonest behavior, the baby is less likely to mimic them. 12/13/11 5:20pm ET

Derek Jeter Gives One-Night Stands Memorabilia
New York
New York Yankees star Derek Jeter reportedly has lots of one-night stands, which all end the same way -- with his car service giving the women a basket of autographed memorabilia the morning after. The New York Post says they learned of the practice when Jeter accidentally had a two-night stand and sent the woman home with the same gift basket twice. 12/13/11 6:06pm ET

Because nothing says "Thank you, I'm sorry" like an autographed gift basket.

Actually, that's two stereotypes that have been confirmed. Asians are bad drivers, and clearly they also have small penises.
