According to a recent survey, almost half of women say a beautiful house is the ultimate status symbol. When women were asked what food reminds them of their husband, one third of them said a potato. People relax all the time on weekends, but rarely on weekdays. A survey found that 31% of couples have never gone on a romantic trip together. And get this, the average couple only spends seven minutes a day being romantic. When it comes to the holidays, almost half of us say that money is no object when it comes to staying in a hotel rather than with relatives. According to one study, men can reduce their risk of a stroke by shaving every day. When it comes to physical activity, more people end up in the emergency room because they were doing yoga.

Macklemore Reveals Wife Tricia Is Pregnant With Baby No. 2. Macklemore is going to be a dad again! The 34-year-old rapper, whose real name is Ben Haggerty, revealed on Instagram Thursday via a promo video for his Gemini tour that his wife Tricia Davis is pregnant with their second child. The clip shows them at a baby sex reveal party with their daughter Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty, 2. "Tricia is pregnant and today we are going to find out the gender of our child," Macklemore says, as their daughter kisses her mom. But after he cut a blue and pink-frosted cake, the inside shows up in plain white. He then reveals a piece of paper showing that he is adding an additional concert in December in his native Seattle. "Tricia really is pregnant, though," Macklemore says in the end. Macklemore had also announced Tricia's pregnancy with Sloane in January 2015 via a heartwarming, emotional video of the two watching an ultrasound at their OBG/YN appointment. The following Au…

ON THIS DAY

On this date in 551 B.C., Confucius was born. He was of course, the man who coined the phrase, "He who lives in glass house should dress in basement."

In 1789, the U.S. War Department created a regular army. The secret? Lots of fiber. At first, no one there got along. Then they remembered: "Hey, we're the War Department!"

On this date in 1829, the famous Scotland Yard was created. Weird that they use "Yard" when they're on the metric system. I'm surprised they didn't name it Scotland .9144 Meter.

In 1913, Rudolph Diesel -- the inventor of the diesel engine -- drowned in the English Channel. Ironically, he was knocking for help and everyone just assumed he was just like his engine.

On this date in 1951, the very first color broadcast of a football game on TV took place. This marked the beginning of the end for Sunday home projects. This really should be a holiday and we should all have the day off. It was so impressive, several people dropped t…

Twitter: Because He's the President
For the first time, Twitter is explaining why President Trump's tweets don't get pulled when they seem to continually violate the same rules the rest of us have to follow. It basically comes down to this: Because he's the president! In a blog post and series of tweets, the company said that it considers "a number of factors" in deciding whether a tweet violates the rules, including "'newsworthiness and whether a Tweet is of public interest." Given that Trump is in fact president, everything he tweets could thus be considered newsworthy so it seems he gets blanket protection for all his tweets. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said the company had gotten a lot of questions in particular about Trump's weekend tweet in which he warned that North Korea's leader might not "be around much longer." North Korea considered it a declaration of war and Trump's critics thought it at least violated Twitte…

The very first cattle ranch was started in the state of New York. In a recent survey, men said the cellphone as the best gadget ever, women chose the hair straightener. It's estimated that Americans spend, collectively, more than 6 billion hours doing their taxes. According to a study by health experts, only 16% of Americans wash their hands correctly. If you're a guy and you use a Bluetooth headset, over half the women surveyed think you're a "dork." Men are just as likely as women to do laundry over the weekend.
