Face coverings have become a very normal accessory over the last 22 months, but did you ever think that they could actually make you more attractive? A new paper out of Cardiff University shows that yes, you’re actually more appealing to others when you’re wearing a face covering. (Sorry about that…). Researchers found that the simple disposable blue masks in particular “increase facial attractiveness more than other face coverings”. In the study, men were perceived to be more physically attractive when wearing a mask than without one. A study where women in masks were rated has yet to be released, but is said to have yielded the same results. One professor at the school said: “the pandemic has changed our psychology in how we perceive the wearers of masks.”

To make things worse, no one noticed they were gone for three days until a maintenance man looked up and saw they were missing. To top things off the $15,000 cameras had been right in front of a police station — and they were transmitting to police headquarters at the time they were stolen.

Girl Scout cookie season is almost here.

Girls Scouts is preparing for its 2022 cookie-selling season with its Cookie Finder, a tool that allows users to search for nearby boxes of Thin Mints or Samoas by typing in their zip code to find availability. The Cookie Finder is also available to download as a mobile app.

Although Girls Scouts hasn’t officially announced the start date for the season, last year it kicked off on February 1, though exact timing can vary by location.

Per tradition, Girl Scouts will release a new cookie this year. Titled Adventurefuls, the Girls Scouts website describes them as “brownie-inspired cookies topped with caramel flavored crème with a hint of sea salt.”

In 2021, Girl Scouts debuted a variety of new initiatives to help sell and deliver cookies during the pandemic, including online ordering and delivery with Grubhub.
