These CAN'T taste good . . . right?
Oreos just released a new, limited-time flavor for the summer. And it is . . . WATERMELON-FLAVORED OREOS. Yes, Watermelon Oreos.
They use the vanilla cookies, not the traditional chocolate ones. And in between you get cream that's half pink, half green, and all watermelon-y.
By all rights, this should be disgusting . . . but the early reviews online are POSITIVE. The website JunkFoodGuy.com described it as, quote, "a watermelon taste like it had been blended with cream. Imagine a watermelon ice cream."
They're $3 a package, but you can only get Watermelon Oreos at Target, and just for the summer.
Women live longer than men . . . that's ALWAYS been true. But here's a theory WHY. Turns out men might just be more FRAGILE than women, even if men's larger, thicker, beefier bodies make us all think the opposite.
And men aren't just more likely than women to die when they're old. They're more likely to be miscarried . . . male babies are more likely to die than female babies . . . and men are more likely to die in middle age too.
So scientists have a theory that the male body just isn't quite built as STRONG as the female body. They're just not quite sure WHY.
It might be that testosterone makes men weaker. There might be something in the Y chromosome that makes men more susceptible to disease. Or it might be that larger bodies just break down sooner than smaller bodies.
Whatever it is, men are more likely to die at EVERY SINGLE

There are just some things that should not be said to your boss. HEre they are in order...
1. "I need a raise." Never enter salary negotiations talking about what you need -- because of rising costs or a new expense, for instance. Your employer doesn't care about your financial problems.
2. “That just isn’t possible.” Always speak to your boss in terms of what can be done. For instance, rather than saying “We can’t get this done by Friday,” say “We could definitely get this done by Monday, or if we brought in some freelance help, we could meet the Friday deadline.” When you talk to your boss, think in terms of solving problems for her, not in terms of putting problems on her plate.
3. “I can’t stand working with ____.” Complaining about a coworker's personality usually reflects more poorly on you than on the coworker. Don’t make these kinds of conflicts your boss’s problem. Of course, management is interested in problems that jeopardize the company's ability to function. If you have to speak to HR about a problem such as a colleague's threatening,
4. “I partied too hard last night -- I'm so hung over!” Buck up and get through the day with some ibuprofen, extra undereye concealer and coffee. But don’t share the sordid details of your night on the town with your boss. Even if you have a friendly relationship,
5. “But I emailed you about that last week.” Alerting your boss to a problem via email doesn't absolve you of all responsibility for it. Bosses hate the "out of my outbox, out of my mind" attitude. Keep tabs on all critical issues you know about -- and keep checking in until you hear a firm "You don't need to worry about that anymore."
6. “It’s not my fault.” Are you a whiny 8-year-old or a take-charge professional? Assume responsibility and take steps to fix a problem that you did, in fact, create. And if you are being wrongly blamed for a problem, saying “Let’s get to the bottom of this” or “What can we do to make it right?” is much more effective than saying “It’s not my fault.”
7. "I don't know.” If your boss asks you a question you can’t answer, the correct response is not "I don't know." It's "I'll find out right away."
8. “But we've always done it this way." You may find yourself with a new boss who wants to try new things -- and the best way to present yourself as a workplace relic is to meet change with a "we do it this way because this is the way we do it" attitude.
9. “Let me set you up with...” Avoid the urge to play matchmaker for your single boss. The potential risk far outweighs any potential benefit.
There's a court battle going on right now over the copyright to the "Happy Birthday" song.
You probably didn't even know it was copyrighted. But Warner/Chappell Music has been collecting royalties from it for years.
Now there's a production company making a documentary about the song, and they're suing to have it brought into the public domain.
(They say the song was never supposed to be copyrighted to begin with, and it always should have been in the public domain. The song will be protected until 2030.)
