A study (AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety) reveals 41 percent of drivers admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel, and drowsy driving accounts for about 17 percent of all crashes, and 2 percent of vehicular fatalities. One tip to avoid drowsy driving: Drinking a good quantity of water helps as it prevents dehydration that can cause drowsiness. It also requires you to pull over regularly and stretch your legs for a bathroom break.
Most of us think compatibility and love are the greatest predictors of marital success. A study says that age difference matters as well. The study compiled polling data from more than 3,000 recently married and divorced Americans. Turns out the closer you are in age, the less likely you are to divorce. Being one year apart from your partner makes you 3 percent more likely to divorce (when compared to their same-aged counterparts). If there’s a 5-year difference, you’re 18 percent more likely to split up. And a 10-year difference? You’re 39 percent more likely to end your marriage.
kids have too many toys. You know it, your spouse knows it, your
friends know it. Only your kids think they need more. It’s time to
thin the pile of toys, and Lifehacker has a good idea:
Step 1: Box up all their toys while they’re asleep.
Step 2: Return the toys they specifically ask for by name.
Step 3: After one month, donate the rest to charity.

American Airlines passengers were booted from a flight after one
allegedly tried sneaking into first class — where she tried to hide
under the other’s seat for the duration of the trip. The story,
which was originally shared on FlyerTalk by a fellow passenger,
concerns an American Airlines flight scheduled to depart from Dallas
to Miami on October 30th. The flight was already delayed due to an
incident with a catering truck when a woman from coach came into the
first-class section to speak with a friend. The witness alleges that
the woman from coach then attempted to crouch down and hide in the
footwell of her friend’s seat, directly underneath the television
display. “Apparently the plan was for this woman's friend to remain
there the entire flight as it's something they thought would drive
viewers to their ‘YouTube Channel,’” the passenger wrote. Law
enforcement met the aircraft at the gate, the two passengers exited
the aircraft, and the flight departed shortly after.
