Attention Seeking Gone Wrong

The things that some men will do to get attention, sometimes even I have to look on in disbelief. And I've seen some rather bizarre situations as a firefighter... So when I heard about a bunch of firefighters being required to free a man who'd managed to cement his head into a microwave, purely for attention seeking, publicity reasons? Well it's fair to say I had one one of those WTF moments The fact it took over 2 1/2 hours to free him and the only reason he survived was because one of his friends managed to get a breathing tube into him, and he had a plastic bag over

Is Your Health Worth A Bagel?

Do you eat bagels? Personally, they're not high up on my list of breakfast faves But I know many people enjoy them, including my mum My mum has never spent $1,000 on a bagel though But that's how much a particular bagel will cost you at the Westin Hotel in New York $1,000. Now, it's obviously not just any old bagel for that price. It's a rather decadent & luxurious offering with Alba white truffle cream cheese, goji berry-infused Riesling jelly and the obligatory gold leaf flakes. Sounds fancy right? But, at the end of the day, it is still just a bagel. Yet, there's plenty of people buying it. They want

Marshmallow Now Or A Bentley Later?

You can tell a lot about a person with just a simple marshmallow. How smart they're going to be, how successful they're going to be. Even how happy they're going to be. All with a simple Marshmallow. 2 Actually. More than 40 years ago, a psychologist called Walter Mischel explored the concept of self-control in children with a simple test, which came to be known as 'The Marshmallow Test'. Mischel and his colleagues presented children with a plate on which lay 1 marshmallow. The child was then told that the researcher had to leave the room for 15 minutes, but
