All Froot Loops taste the same, no matter what color they are.
This is what’s really going on inside a Cup O’ Noodles:
Twinkies definitely don’t last forever.
So-called “Double Stuff” Oreos only contain 1.86 times the stuff.
Cap’n Crunch is not, in fact, a captain.
For years, Subway’s “footlong” subs were a big, 11-inch LIE.
Douple-dipping doesn’t spread any more germs than single-dipping.
It’s really shocking what people are willing to do to their bodies. Getting any tattoo relating to computers or video games pretty much solidifies your status as a complete and total nerd. If that’s your thing and you’re proud of it, then that’s great, but I’d never get any of the horribly nerdy tattoos in this gallery.

Many people rely on an alarm clock to get up for work or school in the morning, then sleep in on the weekend to make up for the lost shut-eye. But according to researchers, both of these habits are bad for you. One comprehensive study of sleep habits found that many people have a discrepancy between how much they sleep during the week and how much they sleep during weekends. According to the experts, this disruption of our natural circadian rhythms makes your body behave poorer and increases your risk of obesity. A study in Japan found that it isn’t just the disruption of your natural circadian rhythms, but also that the very act of an alarm waking you up abruptly is bad for your heart. The researchers report that the way an alarm clock wakes you can raise your blood pressure and put you in a full alert situation that isn’t good for you. If you really must wake up early and you can’t go to sleep earlier, gradual wake up methods are the best way to maintain good health.
Mowing Your Lawn
Unless you rent, there’s a pretty good chance that you have a lawn which you are at least partially responsible for. That means regularly mowing the grass to make sure it doesn’t get out of control. Unfortunately, it turns out that lawnmowers are a pretty bad offender when it comes to air pollution. See, most cars have catalytic converters to tone down the pollution problem, but in the United States the converters aren’t mandatory on lawnmowers. A study in Sweden decided to compare one of these lawnmowers to a car and found that it would take roughly 100 miles in a car to equal the amount of pollution a lawnmower can spew into the atmosphere in a single hour. Due to the dangers, some states will even call for “Ozone Action Days” on particularly hot summer days, and suggest that people refrain from mowing their lawns during those times.
Flip-flop sandals are still a popular form of footwear during the summer, mainly for their convenience, breathability, and affordability. However, the unfortunate truth is that flip-flops are just murder on your feet. For starters, the flip-flop has those straps that go between your toes which can cause painful blisters and cuts. However, what podiatrists are most concerned about is the lack of support that they provide your feet while you are walking. Because flip-flops are basically just a piece of rubber cut in the shape of a foot with some straps to keep them loosely attached, they don’t really do you much good in any structural sense. They don’t bend in the proper places, and some cheaper ones really don’t bend at all. Not only that, but using your toes to help keep the sandal in place isn’t very good for your feet either. Podiatrists caution that walking affects the rest of your posture as well, so constant wear of flip-flops could lead to various joint pains and other related problems. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t ever wear sandals or flip-flops, but experts suggest only wearing them in very specific situations—even during the summer—and sticking with normal shoes most of the time. If you are going to wear them more often, they suggest spending the money on ones that are designed to better support your feet.
