I read this the other day ...- A new survey by Sky News reveals that 15% of men would consider a romantic relationship with a robot. Only 2% of women would consider the same.....of course I was concerned. But I felt much better after reading this.....
A new psychological study reveals: we shouldn't believe psychological studies.
These findings are based upon the discovery that three out of four psych studies conducted are unable to be reproduced. And the ones that can be replicated 100 percent of the time are "likely to be trite, boring and probably already known; yes, dead people can never be taught to read," says Alan Kraut from the Association for Psychological Science.
But that's not necessarily a bad thing according to science expert Joshua Kirsch, who referred to non-reproducible studies as "one of the most beautiful things about science" on HuffPost Live on Tuesday.

A warning from school administrators to parents over their daughter’s lunchbox is one seemingly worthy of a super hero’s rescue. The only problem is that super heroes are banned from the school, even on a lunchbox.
An Imgur user posted a letter earlier this week reportedly sent from school officials to his friends, expressing concern that their daughter brought a “Wonder Woman”-themed lunchbox to school.
"We noticed that Laura has a Wonder Woman lunchbox that features a super hero image," the letter begins. "In keeping with the dress code of the school, we must ask that she not bring this to school."
"The dress code we have established requests that the children not bring violent images into the building in any fashion – on their clothing (including shoes and socks), backpacks and lunch boxes," the letter continues. "We have defined 'violent characters' as those who solve problems using violence. Superheroes certainly fall into that category."
The school’s name and address are redacted in the letter, which was posted anonymously.
The Imgur user also posted two photos of the lunchbox reportedly under fire.
The front of the lunchbox shows just a close-up image of Wonder Woman’s face, while the back shows a full-body image of Wonder Woman in her costume holding her lasso.
“As lovely as Aphrodite, as wise as Athena,” the lunchbox reads.
The letter quickly went viral, prompting even the actress best known for playing Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, to share the story on social media.
Just in time for Halloween, y’all! Two costumes that might make some cringe: Cecil The Lion Killer and Caitlyn Jenner.
The Cecil Killer costume, which consists of a severed lion’s head and a bloody dentist’s shirt was made available after the CEO of Costumeish.com, Jonathan Weeks, said the costume company was “flooded with requests.” The flood of requests, however, has not turned into a flood of orders, because according to Daily Mail, the company has yet to sell one of the Cecil the Lion Killer costumes.
If you’re sitting there, saying to yourself, “This ain’t right, man. They are giving 15% of the profits to African Wildlife Foundation’s Justice For Cecil fundraiser. Which is really conflicting if you think about it.
The Caitlyn Jenner costume, comes complete with a white top, white shorts, brown wig, and a sash emblazoned with “Call Me Caitlyn,”
Anytimecostumes.com is not the only store where the Caitlyn costume is available. Costumesupercenter.com and Wholesalehalloween.com are currently selling the exact same style, and Spirit Halloween says that it, too, would be offering a Caitlyn Jenner costume this year (although it appears it's currently unavailable on the company's website).
So, whatever you choose to be this Halloween, have fun!
A study from the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, revealed that distinct personalities correspond with ice cream flavors.
If you like banana, you are easy going, well adjusted, generous, honest, and empathetic.
If you like vanilla, you are colorful, impulsive, a risk taker who sets high goals and has high expectations of yourself. You also enjoy close family relationships.
If you like chocolate, you are lively, creative, dramatic, charming, enthusiastic, and the life of the party. Chocolate fans enjoy being at the center of attention and can become bored with the usual routine.
If you like butter pecan, you are orderly, a perfectionist, careful, detail-oriented, conscientious, ethical, and fiscally conservative. You are also competitive, aggressive in sports, and the take-charge type of personality.
If you like strawberry, you are shy, yet emotionally robust, skeptical, detail oriented, opinionated, introverted, and self-critical.
If you like chocolate chip, you are generous, competitive, and accomplished. You are charming in social situations, ambitious, and competent.
Given that information we have put together the "Ice Cream Compatibility Test" for ice cream lovers. If you are looking for the perfect man just asking one simple question can find if he is a perfect match for you. The question? "What is your favorite ice cream flavor?" If your favorite flavor is:
Banana -- compatible with all flavors.
Vanilla -- you are most likely to be compatible with someone whose favorite flavor is vanilla.
Chocolate -- compatible with butter pecan or chocolate chip.
Butter Pecan -- compatible with butter pecan, chocolate and chocolate chip.
Strawberry -- compatible with chocolate chip.
Chocolate Chip -- compatible with butter pecan, strawberry or chocolate.
