For more than 30 years Lisa Rollins has been a part of upstate radio. Called the most calming, caring, conservative voice in radio, Lisa can see all sides of the issue, yet is never afraid to share her own personal opinion!
When it comes to finding a mate, men may not be looking for charm and intelligence, but a woman who looks dumb - or drunk - enough for a 1-night-stand, according to a new study.
In an article in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, University of Texas at Austin graduate student Cari Goetz and her team focused on the so-called sexual exploitability hypothesis - the idea that men are genetically programmed to look for 'easy' sex.
So, men apparently prefer to have flings with women they consider "airheads" -- but that's not who they want to marry.
In that study men rated 19 out of 22 traits such as stupidity, sleepiness or drunkenness as 'attractive.' In pictures, the dumb-looking and inert women were also perceived as being more attractive than their more lucid or intelligent-looking peers, but only when it came to short-term relationships.
When the men were asked to judge the same liquored-up, silly-looking women in the photos as potential girlfriends and wives, they had entirely lost their appeal on them.
And you guys think a woman is difficult to understand!
Have you seen the video of a man putting a baby in a washing machine? It’s gone viral and is shocking.
On it you see a guy putting a little 1 year old in a washer, then closes the door and; DUMMY; it automatically locks and the washer turns on.
The man and the woman babysitting the child panic. The baby mama, 22 year old Sakia David says she saw it for the 1st time on the news and is angry! You think!!!
The babysitter never told the mother what happened at the Camden, New Jersey laundromat.
The pair frantically ran for help. A laundromat worker came to the rescue and turned the power off to the machine.
Thank GOD, the child was basically unharmed, taken to the hospital and returned to his mother but failed to mention the “fun” they had with her baby!
How's the mother feel? “I'm pissed,” she says “I was mad cause you shouldn't put a kid in the washer, but at the same time, he was just playin’ around.”
Meanwhile back at the laundromat, the owner says she is thinking of putting up signs to protect herself from liability that read “do not put kids in washers.“
Sometimes I just wanna knock some sense into people, with a chair…in the head!
Have a nice day!
More men are apparently leaving "manly" jobs to enter fields traditionally dominated by women. According to new data occupations that WERE more than 70% female made up about a 3rd of all job growth for men from 2000 to 2010. That’s double the rise in the 1990s. The New York Times reports men are becoming teachers and nurses, but also bank tellers, receptionists, and servers. According to the Times, the trend is most pronounced among young, white men with college degrees.
Are you seeing this more and more?
Going organic may make you healthier, but could it make you smug and judgmental as well? That's what a new study suggests, The Week magazine reports those who buy and eat organic food often look down on others and let them know about it. They cited Loyola University psychology professor and study author Kendall Eskine as attributing this to "moral licensing," which is when people who do something they see as good begin to feel self-righteous and also feel like they have permission to act less "good" later on. Have you found in your own life that people who eat very healthy or organic food can tend to be smug or judgmental about others?
A 33-year-old Tennessee man who's fathered 30 children with 11 different women, ranging from toddler age up to 14 years old, is asking the courts for relief from his child support payments. The state already takes half of Desmond Hatchett's paychecks and divides it up among the various mothers, but since he only makes minimum wage, that doesn't amount to much, and some of the women get as little as $1.49 a month. SHUT UP!
Hatchett, who twice had 4 children in the same year, said in 2009 when he was in court to answer charges that many of the mothers weren't receiving child support that he wasn't going to have any more kids. But since that time, when he had 21 children, he's had 9 more.
Are you kiddin’ me? Heck NO, he should NOT get a break from the courts on his child support payments! And I know that what he’s doing isn't illegal, but he’s gotta be stopped from having more children! Right or wrong! What a scumbag!
I love red lipstick…the redder the better to me! Besides that it makes your teeth look even whiter! But, there’s this new study out today showing that men prefer women in red lipstick. Researchers in Vannes, France (where tipping is not customary) asked waitresses serving 447 customers to wear either red, brown or pink lipstick. Male customers were more likely to tip waitresses wearing red, and when they did, they tipped more. Red was the only color that had this effect, and lipstick of any color, or none at all, had no effect on how female customers tipped. (AskMen.com)
Just about everyone can relate to the feeling of being so angry that you want to break something, and now people who live in Dallas have a place where they can do just that.
It’s called THE ANGER ROOM! It’s located in a city strip mall and has things like TVs, office furniture and glassware for people to smash. Customers choose how much time they want to spend in a room and pay accordingly.
The 5 -minute "I Need a Break" session costs $25, the 15-minute "Lash Out" is $45, and the 25-minute "Total Demolition" goes for $75.
Customers, who are outfitted in hard hats and protective goggles, also get to pick the music for their smash session, and can get a videotape of the experience to take with them. They are allowed to take in objects like a baseball bat or golf club to do the smashing, but more dangerous things like chainsaws or machetes are banned.
And if you think this is just a testosterone-driven guy thing, think again. The founder of the business is a 30-year-old woman named Donna Alexander, and at least half of the clientele are female.
What do you think of the idea of this business? Would you pay for a session in The Anger Room?
Let me tell you now, I WOULD NOT!
I cry, fuss, pout but do NOT break things! I don’t get it…but, business is brisk!
How about you?
President Obama announced last week he supports gay marriage. So on the cover of the May 21st issue of Newsweek magazine Obama is shown with a rainbow halo over his head and the words, "The First Gay President."
So here’s what I want to know, what do you think of that? After all, he’s married, has children and is NOT gay but has done( what some consider) more than any other president ever in the U.S. for the homosexual cause. (Getting him the title!)
After all, former President Bill Clinton was dubbed the first black president (and he is white!)
If you HAVE a Mom still here, cherish her! Make sure she knows it. Listen to her and learn from her!
If you ARE a mom, know how blessed you are to have been chosen by our Heavenly Father to care for that precious little one.
And, yes, my little ones are now adults but will always be my children!
Something strange happened yesterday. I was going through old photos to put together a scrapbook for KatieLou, my granddaughter, and found a post card Mom sent to me as she and Dad were traveling years ago.
As I read it silently (sitting in the middle of the living room floor) it was her voice I heard saying it in my head!
After all these years I can still hear mom’s voice!
Gotta go, hard to write even when they ARE happy tears filling my eyes!
Police in Oklahoma City arrested 72-year-old Clyde Hobbs. What’s the big deal? Well, officers say he called 911 seventeen times this past Saturday (May 5th) and talked dirty to the dispatchers each time he did so! 17 times!
So, the cops went to talk to him and his wife answered the door. When he came out of the back of the house he reportedly asked police, "Are you here to arrest me again?" You see, this was Hobbs 3rd arrest for this same type of behavior. This time he was booked on charges of making false reports. His bail was set at $34,000.
Wait a minute it’s bad enough that Gramps did the dirty deed, if he did so! But he did it while his wife was at home?
I got news for you old coot, 911 is NOT a sex line!
What a perv! Leave him there Gran don’t you DARE bail him out!
A Nebraska man has legally changed his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex. The 23 year old says he made the switch for "name recognition." His given name WAS Tyler Gold. But as of this past Monday the 7th of May, he changed his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold, because he says, "it's cooler." The judge said he allowed the change because Gold followed all the required steps.
So if you could change your name, would it be something silly, maybe a very well known name, for a well known person in history, a famous entertainer, maybe an animal or why not Mercedes Benz, name it after your car.
Have you ever thought about changing your name; to what?
I have a very difficult time sleeping lately. I remember Mom used to say that and I would roll my eyes thinking that would NEVER happen to me. Oh well! Maybe it’s age. Maybe it’s ‘cause I have gotten up SO very early for SO very long! But whatever it is, I would love to get more sleep!
There was a recent study done by the Better Sleep Council! It finds 61% of U.S. adults -- and 79% of women -- would rather get a good night's sleep than have sex. The study showed nearly half of Americans fall asleep somewhere other than their bed at least once a week, and about 11% fall asleep somewhere other than their bed every day -- some in dangerous places. However, 77% surveyed said they'd give up something to get a better night's sleep. 31% said they would give up watching TV, 23% would give up time spent on computers and social media, while16% would give up either exercise or going to church.
Am I willing to give up something to get more shut-eye? No I am not! What about you?
I’ve worked in radio for 40 years, but, never in country music radio. While working at Top 40 and Rock stations and now in News Talk Radio I’ve been blessed to meet some wonderful artists, performers and entertainers, but never have I met one as kind and gracious as Aaron Tippen. What a gentleman! No wonder y’all love him so much.
Here’s what happened; my husband, son, daughter in law, grandbaby girl and I met for lunch Saturday afternoon at the Lil Rebel on Highway 290 in Greer. I drove alone to meet them there and arrived minutes before they did.
Well, as I was walking in I met Tippen as he was walking out. Recognizing him, I told him I was there to meet some of my family members including my son who was looking forward to going to the Greer Family Fest that night just to see him perform.
He was so appreciative and waited for a couple of minutes until they got there just to say hello. What a good and humble person!
He thanked my son for being a fan, shook hands with my husband who was holding our grandchild, and talked about how cute she is (that was a heart winner!) He told us they were expecting a grandbaby soon and he was looking forward to it! BUT, most importantly, he said something like; “y’all bring that little girl up right, we need some good little Christians who love God!”
Are you kiddin’ me? a person of his “fame” not ashamed to speak up for faith! So cool, so kind, so considerate and such an excellent example of a good Christian man!
I am so grateful to have met him. And while I’m pretty sure he’s long forgotten our chance meeting, I will never forget it!
Thank you Aaron Tippen! You made me happy, you made a new fan AND I’m certain you made our Heavenly Father even happier.
God Bless you!
On the first Friday of May each year, thousands of people celebrate a little-known holiday called No Pants Day. Some celebrate leg liberation by wearing a dress, skirt, kilt or other pants alternative. The history of No Pants Day is shrouded in mystery.Some say that the first No Pants Day was either in 1985 or 1986. The promoters of No Pants Day claim that the holiday is really about not taking yourself seriously for a day.
Rev. Sean Harris of Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville North Carolina told parents in the congregation this past Sunday to “punch their sons if they acted effeminate.” Well, this has sparked outrage around the nation and yesterday he said the sermon was tied to this coming Tuesday’s vote on a state constitutional amendment that would make marriage between a man and a woman the only legal domestic union in the state. But, in the sermon he also said parents should be; QUOTE ; "squashing that like a cockroach" if their children are cross-dressing.” END QUOTE. Yesterday he said he regrets his choice of words and does NOT advocate hitting children.
What would you have done if you were sitting in his church when he said such?
I don’t remembering seeing such dedication for a politician ever! Are you Ron Paul supporters under some kind of spell, hypnosis, or what? I am not trying to be rude or provoke but get over it! He’s NOT going to win and has even said so himself! I just don’t understand your “passion” for this man who blames everything on big bad America.
His foreign policy is let’s hide our head in the sand and hope everyone just leaves us alone! That is ignorant AND dangerous! I believe in a STRONG National defense and in keeping rogue nations from further expanding their weapons (certainly nuclear!) to turn on US!
I DON’T agree with his position on drugs! He says the government is unconstitutionally sticking its nose in people’s business by not allowing the legal use of drugs like weed. I don’t have the EXACT percentage but have heard it said by re-hab EXPERTS that while not ALL pot smokers turn into hard drug users, 98% (?) of all hard drug users started out by smoking pot! NO, don’t legalize weed or another other such street drug! Do we really need to give people MORE options to numb their minds, to harm themselves and their loved ones! CRAZY!
I loved Ronald Reagan and despise that Paul told the Dallas Morning News that Reagan’s presidency was a ”dramatic failure”.
And in regard to capital punishment Paul says he’s changed his mind and is now OPPOSED to it. I am NOT!
Anyway, I feel better…hope you do when you realize he is not gonna win so get over it and get involved with someone who can beat Obama!
Patricia Mulholland, a 7th grade teacher at Bluffton Middle School in the low-country, says she was only trying to teach the students a lesson about the Holocaust! BUT, she's come under fire for the way she did so. A 12 year old student says she grabbed him by his collar and said, "come here, Jew," then dragged him 10 feet in front of the class, telling him QUOTE; "this is what the Nazis do to Jews," END QUOTE. She's been arrested and charged with assault and battery as well as public disorderly conduct. Mulholland has taught in Beaufort County Schools for 23 years and is now on administrative leave.
