Are You an Introvert or Extrovert? You’re Twice as Likely to Say This One

By |2022-05-19T10:28:42-05:00May 19th, 2022|

Would you say you're an introvert or an extrovert? According to a recent survey, you're twice as likely to say one of those . . . and it's INTROVERT.  That means you prefer being alone, or hanging out with a few people instead of big groups. A thousand Americans were polled.  56% said they're an introvert, and only 28% said extrovert.  The other 15% or so said they had no idea what they are. They broke the stats down even further than that too:  Only 13% said they're a "complete introvert" . . . and 43% said "mostly" introverted. 23% said [...]

Now that we've all binged cooking competition shows on TV, we THINK we know what we're doing in the kitchen.

Using olive oil while cooking, instead of cheaper oils with higher smoke-points. Don't cook with wine, tomatoes, or anything acidic in cast iron pans. Don't eat uncooked cookie dough.

Is This a Legit Frozen Pizza Hack?

By |2022-04-14T07:57:58-05:00April 14th, 2022|

The Internet can't decide if it loves or hates this easy way to slice a frozen pizza.  The hack is that you DON'T slice it.  You take the packaged frozen pie, put it on the edge of the counter halfway, and hit the outer edge so it breaks in half. Then you rotate it, and repeat.  When you get it out of the oven, it's precut.  Some people who saw the clip thought it was "genius."  Others weren't impressed, saying it has to be baked on a pan, because if it's cooked on the rack, the cheese will leak.   @trendkingsOkay definitely the [...]

A Study Found You Should Criticize Your Co-Workers More

By |2022-03-28T07:15:46-05:00March 28th, 2022|

Here's a good tip to start the workweek:  A new study found your co-workers might actually like to hear your thoughts on how BAD they are at their job . . . as long as it's "constructive" criticism. It found most people are more receptive to feedback than you think.  But we usually don't say anything, because we don't like confrontation, and don't want to seem rude. If it's something major, we're even less likely to speak up.  But we even let dumb stuff slide.  For example, less than 3% of people in the study told a researcher they had a smudge on [...]
