NINE MALE HABITS THAT ANNOY WOMEN
How about a reverse list, one for the ladies....
Did you know that the features of your feet reveal things about yourself? Dr. Nancy Sax says so and here's what she has to say:
If your second toe is larger than the others
You are dependable, conservative and you keep your emotions in check. You do well in the fields of medicine, banking and science. You're a good provider but don't expect any fireworks.
If you have a big third toe
Hot headed, unpredictable, and a temper that can go off at any time.
If you have a big baby toe
You're an eternal kid, always joyful and easy going.
If you have long toes
You are the thinkers of the world. Authors, philosophers and great world leaders have long toes.
If you have little toes
Timid yet not one to be backed against the wall. You can push it, but don't push it too far.
If you have wide feet
These are the hard workers of America with strong family values and ties to the church and community.
If you have narrow feet
Shy, quiet type who doesn't like to draw attention to themselves.
If you have webbed toes
You're a freak, not really. These people are the life of the party and make great salesman and entertainers.
Have a lotta love in your heart, but not a lot of loot to back it up? Not to worry -- the most romantic Valentine's Day gifts require imagination, not money.

WORDS YOU SHOULD NEVER (EVER!) SAY
To be perfectly honest, we don't really care what words people say but what do "selfie," "twerking" and "hashtag" have in common? They should all be banned! So say the guardians of the English language, whose day jobs are at Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. This group annually takes on the role of word police by collecting a list of words and phrases that we have used so much they have become annoying. The solution? Ban them! Here are 10 of the banned words and phrases on the 2014 list that were winnowed down from hundreds of entries:
A self-snapped picture need not have a name all its own beyond "photograph." It may only be a matter of time before photos of one's self and a friend will become "dualies."
Let's just keep with "shake yer booty"--no need to "twerk" it! Time to dance this one off the stage.
Used when talking about Twitter, but everyone seems to add it to everyday vocabulary. #annoying #stopthat #hashtag #hashtag #hashtag
There cannot possibly be any oxygen there
This phrase, which comes from the 1983 Michael Keaton movie, "Mr. Mom," should only be used when discussing the film and not men in the real world. It is an insult to the millions of dads who are the primary caregivers for their children. Would we tolerate calling working women Mrs. Dad?
This common way of describing an automobile collision--as in, one car crashes into another car perpendicularly--has now made it from conversation into news reports. Are we making verbs out of a cut of beef?
Anything ---ageddon and ---pocalypse
Many in advertising and news took the words "Armageddon" and "Apocalypse" and then shortened them into worn-out suffixes. Examples: Budgetageddon, Snowpocalypse
Intellectually Bankrupt/Morally Bankrupt
Used by members of each political party when describing members of the other.
Why use one word when apparently two are twice as better?
The number one banned words from previous years:
