The First 72

I’m a fan of the TV show “The First 48.”  The premise of the show is if police investigating a homicide don’t get a solid lead in the first 48 hours, their chance of solving the murder is cut in half.  Along those lines comes a new book called “Kickstart Your Relationship Now! Move On or Move Out” by Margot E. Brown.  The relationship expert asserts if you can’t fix your relationship in three days, it likely won’t last.  In other words, address issues with your partner instead of letting them fester.

Katy’s shot at Taylor

Weeks ago I heard that Katy Perry planned on dissing Taylor Swift during her halftime performance.  Katy didn’t say how she would pull it off, so I watched the show waiting for something obvious.  Well, it wasn’t obvious enough for me to catch it.  But fortunately, a music ( and bikini) expert friend spotted it.  Katy had her backup dancers wear high-waisted polka dot bikinis during a portion of the show.  Taylor has been photographed wearing a polka dot bikini.

Perry and Swift have feuded since Katy supposedly stole backup dancers from Taylor… in the middle of a tour.

Winning football leads to flu

As strange as it seems, researchers say having teams in the Super Bowl leads to a spike in flu deaths in those two cities.  Scientists analyzed the cities which had teams in the big game from 1974 – 2009 and found that having a team in the Super Bowl caused an 18% increase in flu deaths.  They say the reason for the increase is the playoffs and championship games bring more people together at the height of flu season to cheer on their teams, and this spreads germs.

So it’s no wonder St Louisans have been healthier than other cities  – relatively speaking.

Is it True Love?

Scientists think they’ve found the two questions that give “clear empirical evidence” of true love.  The two questions you have to ask:

“How happy are you in your marriage relative to how happy you would be if you weren’t in the marriage?”

and

“How do you think your spouse answered that question?”

The researchers say people who think they would be no worse off being single than they are being married are more likely to end up that way.  But people who overestimate how happy their partners are in their relationship are even more likely to find themselves on their own.
