Four Tips for Taking Better Selfies

Jul 28, 2015 -- 3:16pm

 

We keep hearing about selfies-gone-horribly-wrong, and we're sort of okay with that.  Because while they're a fixture of modern life . . . they're obnoxious.  But if you DO want the best results, try these four tips. 

 

 

1.  Keep your phone at arm's length, but don't strain.  Obviously you should stretch out your arm far enough to get the phone away from your face, so that it doesn't distort your features.  But not SO far that you have to strain to hold it while you're getting the shot.

 

 

2.  Ask someone to help.  We've never heard this one before, but it's okay to ask the OTHER person to help steady the camera.  Like if there are only two or three of you. 

 

 

It sounds like it goes against the idea of a selfie, but if you can pull it off without looking like two people are involved, the photo ends up looking better . . . less straining, more steady.

 

 

3.  Choose your background wisely.  Don't pose in front of something like a branch, that'll look like it's coming out of your head . . . watch out for photobombers . . . and in famous settings, move to the side so you get the scenery too.

 

 

4.  Actually look at the camera.  You don't want a shot of the inside of your nose, or your forehead looking huge.

 

 

Also, we found a list of all the places where SELFIE STICKS are banned.  Just go to CanIBringMySelfieStick.com.  For example, you CAN at Alcatraz, but you CAN'T at Disneyland.

A Company That Makes Flatulence-Blocking Underwear Just Created Jeans and Pajama Pants

Jul 23, 2015 -- 4:41pm

There's a company in England called Shreddies that makes underwear that absorbs your FLATULENCE.  We're not sure how effective they are, but the company's sold tens of thousands of pairs, so they must be decent.

 

 

But what if you don't want to wear their underwear . . . or any underwear at all . . . and you still want gas blocking power?

 

 

Good news . . . they just launched two new product lines.  Now they make flatulence-absorbing JEANS and PAJAMAS, for both men and women.

 

 

The jeans look decently stylish, but they'll set you back $156, plus another $23 for shipping.  The pajama pants are $117, plus the $23 shipping.

 

 

But can you really put a price on being able to eat whatever you want without worrying about clearing out a room?

 

 

You can check them out at MyShreddies.com

The couple issued a statement to the AP saying, "This is not the future we envisioned, and it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."

The couple have allegedly sorted all the financial details of the split, and according to sources, Blake will take the couple's Oklahoma ranch while Miranda will hang onto their Nashville home. Those same sources claim that Miranda has been moving her animals off the ranch in recent days, including horses, a camel and a llama.

FAST FACTS

  • Blake and Miranda married on May 14, 2011.
  • Their relationship is rumored to have been the cause of Blake's divorce from his first wife, Kaynette, in 2006.

Kids Don't Ask "Are We There Yet?" Until Two Hours and 23 Minutes Into a Road Trip

Jul 20, 2015 -- 4:31pm

Everyone hates long, boring car rides.  So the joke on road trips is to ask "are we there yet" right away.  But kids don't say it as a joke.  Here's how it actually breaks down . . .

 

 

Believe it or not, kids get a bad rap.  They actually CAN be pretty patient.  But once that impatience sets in, things get ugly FAST.

 

 

A new survey found that the average kid starts asking "Are we there yet?" exactly two hours and 23 minutes into a road trip.

 

 

And if the answer is "No" . . . look out.  Because 14 minutes later, they'll start fighting and arguing with you, or their brothers and sisters.  Here are the other two things they found . . .

 

 

The average summer road trip is three hours and 49 minutes. 

 

 

And 55% of people try to make it without stopping for more than one or two quick bathroom breaks.
