Researchers Claim That More Sex Can Improve A Woman’s Memory

sex-study1

(PCM) A group of researchers have discovered a new link between the amount of sex a woman is having and the strength of her memory. A group of researchers at McGill University conducted a memory study that looked at defining a link between sex and the growth of nerve tissue in the hippocampus. The hippocampus is the are of the brain that is in control of memory, emotional responses, and the overall nervous system.

To complete the study the McGill University researchers asked 78 heterosexual women under the age of 30 to partake in a memory test that involved looking at individual faces and memorizing abstract words. They were also questioned about their overall GPA and use of birth control. The results interestingly enough revealed that women who had sex more frequently were able to recall more abstract words. Hilariously, the amount of sex did not have an affect on the women’s ability to recall faces.

The findings do cement the fact that sex is often linked to certain memory abilities and functions. The researchers published their findings in the “Archives of Sexual Behavior”. Some of the researchers feel that because sex is a form of exercise it works in much the same way to improve memory function as well as release stress and battle depression. Further research will now be conducted to determine whether or not reaching the point of orgasm has any effect on memory function as well. Definitely a study that we are sure women will be lining up to participate. Wondering if they plan to do a similar study with men?

Domino’s Pizza Is Training Reindeer To Deliver Pizza In Japan

reindeer1

(PCM) We can think of about a million and one reasons why this is not such a good idea, however Domino’s Pizza still plans to move forward with their “brilliant” idea to train reindeer to deliver pizza’s this holiday season in Japan. The franchise branch that came up with the idea is even figuring on a way incorporate GPS technology to equip the reindeer and the pizza will be delivered via sleigh. Tis’ the season of ridiculousness! 

The fine folks at the Domino’s franchise in Japan that hatched this plan have released a video showcasing their effort in training the pizza delivering reindeer. Let’s just say, it doesn’t go exactly according to plan (gee..didn’t see that one coming!).

Domino’s plan was to equip the reindeer with GPS trackers so that the customer who ordered the pizza would be able to track their whereabouts and delivery time. They unfortunately did not plan for such instances as the pizza falling off the back of the reindeer or the reindeer veering the sleigh off course. Not sure what they were really expecting with an untrained wild animal, but hey, we give them points for the attempt and creativity. 

A press release for the company states that it is “too difficult to control the reindeer” but they are still trying to work out the situation and urge their customers to stay tuned for additional information.

Just When You Thought Barbie Has Done It All She Is Now Breastfeeding

breastfeeding-barbie

(PCM) An Australian doll artist by the name of Betty Strachan has decided to take matters into her own heads when dealing with the social stigma associated with breastfeeding and has created the “Mamas Worldwide Barbie”. The doll features realistic proportions and features and the idea came to her when she was spending time with a group of new mothers and drew a new face on a Barbie doll. It was agreed the the face represented a true embodiment of the group.

Strachan then added on the feature of a latched baby to the dolls breast and we now have the world’s first breastfeeding Barbie. The new doll was incredibly well-received by mothers worldwide and Strachan has completely sold out of the “Mama Worldwide Barbie” in her Etsy store. Her Etsy store also feature various more realistic Barbie doll characters such as the pregnant Barbie which also happens to be another popular item.

Strachan had the following to say about her art and doll collection, “Growing up, it always struck me as odd that there wasn’t as much diversity in the doll world as there could or should be. Not every child is born with blonde hair and blue eyes. Some have freckles, some have gaps in their teeth.”

You can see a few of her amazing designs below:

Canadian Police Punish Drunk Drivers By Forcing Them To Listen To Nickelback

dui2

(PCM) You almost have to feel bad for vocalist Chad Kroger and the boys in Nickelback. They are constantly getting ridiculed and no one seems to understand their overall popularity. It now seems that police on Canada’s Prince Edward Island have discovered a new way to punish drunk drivers in addition to fines, license suspension and criminal charges. They will also force individuals who are busted for drunk driving to endure listening to the police departments in-house Nickelback CD collection. 

Oh, the horror, but really actually pretty funny! The police department made a post via Facebook that said that anyone who was “dumb enough to feel they could drink and drive” would also be forced to listen to endless Nickelback while they are contained in police custody. The department went on to say “we figure if you are foolish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking then a little Chad Kroeger and the boys is the perfect gift for you.” You can view the Facebook posting below:

Definitely a creative solution to battle the on-going problem of drunk driving, especially around the holiday season. Although others may feel that having to endure endless Nickelback songs may literally “drive” someone to drink even more!  Sorry, Nickelback, at least it’s for a good cause!

NASA Is On The Hunt For A New Way To Help Astronauts Poop In Space

astronaut

(PCM) In the very near future, NASA has plans to keep astronauts confined in their spacesuits for approximately six days at a time for exploration purposes. The astronauts on the mission would not have access to either the space shuttle or the space station to be able to relieve themselves, so therefore their only option would be wearing an adult diaper for the duration of the mission. 

We can definitely say that six days in an adult diaper does not sound very pleasant and NASA agrees, which is why they are in search of an innovative idea to assist the astronauts with pooping in space. They are currently hosting a competition aptly called “The Space Poop Challenge” as a way to crowdsource a new an innovative way for astronauts to relieve themselves in space. 

NASA is accepting submissions via the website HeroX in hopes to discover an “in-suit waste management system” that could work for “up to 144 hours” to get rid of “fecal, urine, and/or menstrual waste.” If your idea is chosen you could win up to $30,000. Now, that’s definitely some fun holiday spending money! Put on your thinking caps and get to work!

Santa Is Now Leaving Apology Notes For Kids Who Didn’t Get What They Wanted For Christmas

santa-letter

(PCM) It is no secret that both Hatchimals and Nintendo NES Classic Editions are at the very top of every child’s wish list this Christmas. Of course, it is also no secret that neither of these highly sought after toys can be found at any retail locations both brick and mortar or online, in fact both are selling for hundreds and even thousands of dollars on websites such as Ebay and Amazon which many parents certainly can’t afford.

Rather than watch their children endure the sadness of not discovering a Hatchimal or NES Classic Edition under the tree, many parents are turning to apology letters from Santa (yes, they are a real thing) to help ease pain and help explain just why these treasured presents did not end up under the tree. One letter in particular claims that the reason the child is not receiving a Hatchimal for Christmas is due to the fact that both Santa and Mrs. Claus are waiting for the eggs to be laid. It goes on to say that once the egg has been laid, sometime in January, an elf will deliver the Hatchimal to the child’s home.

Another option is a letter that explains why the child will not be receiving a Hatchimal at all saying that they will be no longer given out as presents and they are forming a colony of Hatchimals at the North Pole to help combat extinction and protect species. Hey, if the kids buy it … go for it! However, could Santa apology letters be taking things a bit too far. Many parents feel that children should not receive every item that is marked on their Christmas lists, as it could certainly lead to the children developing unrealistic expectations later in life.

When we were young and we didn’t get the toys we asked for (I’m looking at you Cabbage Patch Dolls, Easy Bake Ovens, and Tickle Me Elmos) we just moved on, played with the gifts we did receive and all was good in the world. Parents, it’s definitely time to rip off the band-aid and teach these children about the way the real world works. We can’t get what we want all time!
