LOVE IN A DIGITAL WORLD

How soon in a relationship a couple has sex is a very personal decision, but 80% of women and 58% of men say Facebook, texting and other social media tools that help people stay connected lead to earlier first-time sex. That's the word from a survey by Shape and Men's Fitness magazines.

Texting is the number one way lovers keep in touch with one another.

Men text their lover 39% more frequently than phone, while women text 150% more often.

Before the first date, 70% of women and 63% of men use Google and other online search tools for background screening.

65% said they have been asked out on a date via text.

49% said they have been asked out on a date through a Facebook message.

Once a couple clicks, 72% of women say they have looked up their boyfriend's ex-girlfriends on Facebook.

When a couple is having sex and a call or text message is received, 5% of respondents say they glance to see who it is and 1% stop to answer.

Call it digital dumping. 43% of women and 27% of men say they have received a break-up text message.

81% said they do not de-friend the ex on Facebook.

75% admit to constantly checking a former lover's Facebook page.

MAKE A KICK-ASS FIRST IMPRESSION

You'll stand out from the crowd with Cosmopolitan's smart moves.

Shake hands like a pro.

"Many women wait for the other person to extend his or her hand, but reaching out first puts you in control immediately, says Marjorie Brody, founder of Brody Communications, an executive coaching and training firm in Philadelphia.

Groom these key spots.

"Your shoes, hair, and nails are the things people notice first," says Brody. It may not seem like a big deal to have a chipped nail or worn-out pumps, but these things suggest that you're sloppy and not detail-oriented.

Establish eye contact.

"Introductions make many people nervous, and looking away or down is a common reaction," Brody explains. "But eye contact demonstrates that you're comfortable, interested, and engaged."

Show you're prepared.

"Do some research on the person's company," suggests Brody. Mentioning a tidbit like their new CEO in the first five minutes lets them know you're informed.

WOULD YOU RATHER?

Would you rather not be able to open any closed doors (locked or unlocked) or not be able to close any open doors?

Would you rather give up all drinks except for water or give up eating anything that was cooked in an oven?

Would you rather take amazing selfies but all of your other pictures are horrible or take breathtaking photographs of anything but yourself?

Would you rather use a push lawn mower with a bar that is far too high or far too low?

Would you rather be able to dodge anything no matter how fast it's moving or be able ask any three questions and have them answered accurately?

Would you rather live on the beach or in a cabin in the woods?

Would you rather lose your left hand or right foot?

Would you rather face your fears or forget that you have them?

Would you rather be forced to dance every time you heard music or be forced to sing along to any song you heard?

WEIRD NEWS

Yes We Have No Bananas... Hey Wait a Minute!

A Facebook post from the Texas Department of Justice reads: "Sometimes, life gives you lemons. Sometimes, it gives you bananas. And sometimes, it gives you something you'd never expect!" They would be referencing an unexpected "treasure" found in the middle of a donation of 45 boxes of bananas that were given to the department on account of being already ripe. However, the officers who picked up the shipment noticed something odd and began inspecting the two pallets. That's when they found 540 packages of a "white powdery substance" tucked amid the bananas; that substance was later confirmed to be about $18 million worth of cocaine. The boxes came from Ports of America in Freeport. If it's yours, you should be hearing from the Drug Enforcement Administration and US Customs and Border Protection anytime now as they are both investigating. (Newser)

Selfie Death... Again!

How many times is this going to happen? In Michigan, a day of hiking with awe-inspiring views turned tragic after 32-year-old Tu Thanh Nguyen of Sunnyvale, Calif. fell to her death into Lake Superior trying to get that oh-so-cool selfie. Nguyen was traversing the trails along the cliffs of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore by herself when she decided to stop to snap a few selfies. She apparently got too close to the edge of the 200-foot-high cliff she was perched on and plummeted over the side, into the water below. Two kayakers saw Nguyen fall and rushed to retrieve her. Once back on shore, a kayak company called for help but along with the certainly deadly fall, the lake would've been a chilly 45 degrees when Nguyen hit the water. A park ranger said she was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. (WLUC)

Tragic Honeymoon?

A newlywed on his honeymoon in Hawaii was found dead at the tragic end of a 4-day search that began after he failed to return from a hiking trail. Stephen Kramar of Gaithersburg, Maryland was at the Wavecrest Resort in Kaunakakai, Molokai when he told his new wife he was going to check out a trail the morning of Sept. 17 before she joined him in order to ensure it was safe. The 27-year-old texted that he was on his way back that afternoon but never returned. Days later, his remains were found on a hillside in an area called Pia Gulch, just a half-mile from the resort. Family members have since positively identified the body as Kramar's. An autopsy has been scheduled and no official cause of death has yet been determined. A GoFundMeaccount has been set up to raise money that will benefit Kramar's family by offsetting transportation costs and other fees. As of Sunday afternoon, nearly $20,000 had been raised. (WUSA)

Racist Much?

In Texas, Lynn Redden, superintendent of the Onalaska school district has resigned after drawing widespread outrage for racist comments he made on Facebook, saying that black quarterbacks were inferior. In the official resignation letter sent Saturday to the president of the school board, Redden wrote: "As an educator, this experience has taught me that I still have a lot to learn. My comments were not only uninformed but also hurtful, and I understand now why they were offensive to so many people." Reportedly, Redden thought he was commenting on a private thread when he wrote on the Chron.com Facebook page in response to a play by black Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson last week: "When you need precision decision making you can't count on a black quarterback."

Apparently Nobody's Interested in Michael Moore's Trump Film

It appears not too many people are interested in a Michael Moore's film about Donald Trump - a film he once claimed would be so powerful, it would end Trump's presidency. If you didn't know, the film, "Fahrenheit 11/9", a satirical film about the President, barely cracked the top ten at the box office bringing in only $3.1 million over its debut weekend. Film-goers were far more interested in "The House With a Clock in Its Walls" -a family picture starring Cate Blanchett and Jack Black- which took the top spot with a surprising $26.8 million debut. Filling out the top five domestically were A Simple Favor ($10.4 million), The Nun ($10.2 million), The Predator ($8.6 million), and Crazy Rich Asians ($6.5 million). (Hollywood Reporter)

Paul Simon Is Done With You

Paul Simon will tour no more. The iconic singer/songwriter ended his final concert tour under a moonlit sky on home turf Saturday, telling an audience in a Queens, NY, park that their cheers "mean more than you can know." Simon performed at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, which he said was a 20-minute bicycle ride from where he grew up, ending the landmark night with his first big hit, "The Sound of Silence." The 76-year-old Simon isn't retiring, and hasn't ruled out occasional future performances. But he's said this is his last time out on the road, and he isn't alone among his peers; Elton John and Kiss are also doing goodbye swings. The return to New York raised memories of Simon's two iconic shows in Manhattan's Central Park, in 1981 with former partner Art Garfunkel and in 1991 on his own. Simon's only guest this time was wife Edie Brickell, who came out to whistle the solo in "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard." (Newser)

THIS WEEK IS

National Dog Week -- September 24-30. A celebration observed the last full week of September to bring attention to man's best friend and to educate all dog owners. Part of man's education is to know the top dog breeds to help men attract women.

Mini pincher
Chicks love mini versions of big dogs. They are little so they don't cost a lot to feed, and they look really tough especially with a studded collar.

Beagle
Charlie Brown was the sensitive underdog. You too can be the sensitive guy with a Beagle.

Dalmatian
Any dog who hangs out with firemen is a sure bet with the ladies. This dog is a born hero.

English Pointer
Cute enough for a lady to swoon over; tough enough so you won't look like a wimp.

Dachshund
This little guy is a wonder with the ladies. They are cute and are begging to be cared for.

Greyhound
Sleek and aerodynamic plus many Greyhounds need rescuing so you'll score some serious points with the ladies. So, cook some linguini and introduce her to Vincenzo the Italian Greyhound.

Golden Retriever
Goldens are easy to train and strong, but their most outstanding trait is character. They are outgoing and devoted companions to all sorts of people, happy and trusting. But they can also be protective. Every woman's dream.

Labrador Retriever
Labs are playful, loving to people and hardworking. Put a bandanna on him and he's an instant chick magnet. The Lab can be counted on as a true friend anytime, anyplace.

Border Collie
These dogs are brilliant, you can train them to do anything from catching Frisbees to delivering roses to lovely ladies on the street. They are clean, cute and wonderful herders. They are not too big to scare the lady off and their soft coat is irresistible to the touch. A woman just has to pet this dog.

Mutt
Most mutts are found as strays, rescued from shelters. The Mutt is a natural conversation starter. "What kind of dog is that?" is the usual question the proud owner may hear. A guy with a mutt shows the world that substance matters. His dog may not have the cachet and price tag of a pure breed but, like a rare priceless work of art, the mutt owner knows the dog is unique and one of a kind.

TODAY IS

Exactly three months from today is Christmas Eve. Just saying.

Ross Matthews, better known as Ross the Intern, turns 39 today. That scraping sound you hear is the bottom of our birthday barrel.

Former baseball player and Viagra spokesman Rafael Palmeiro turns 54 today. Let the AARP junk mail continue.

Nia Vardalos who gave us "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" turns 56 today. She also gave us the sequel, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," but we gave that one back.

Football Hall of Famer "Mean Joe" Greene turns 72 today. He's still kind enough to give a kid a bottle of Coke, but then immediately afterwards, yells at him to get off of his lawn.

National Punctuation Day -- There are fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name half of them? In addition, 28 percent of mistakes on business correspondence relate to punctuation. https://www.grammarbook.com

ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1845, the very first baseball team was organized.

Well, there had been previous teams, they just weren't organized.
Of course, there was no one to play until the second baseball team was organized, so I would think that would be the more historically-significant day.
They had a 145-0 season until the next year, when a second team was created.
In 1852, a new invention, the dirigible, was introduced for the first time.

Eventually, they got the nickname, "blimps", which is a good thing for Blimpies. They were this close to be called Dirigiblies.
Critics called it just a bunch of hot air.
Finally, something that could fly over a football game during TV coverage. Now to invent football and TV.
If it weren't for the dirigible, Led Zeppelin probably would have been called something else.
Up until then, large objects filled with gas only ran for public office.
The response was overwhelming and the inventor said, "It's going to be a good year." The name stuck.
In 1895, a woman began the first round-the-world bicycle trip. It took her 15 months. The toughest part was having to go around all those "No Peddlers" signs.

On this date in 1968, "60 Minutes" debuted on CBS-TV. They've taken that one-hour show and made it last 50 years... not to be confused with sitting and talking with Joe Biden for an hour, that will seem to last 50 years.
