They asked over 3,600 office workers about their coffee-drinking habits, and found that 32% of office workers require a cup of coffee to get through the workday. 43% said that they are less productive without their morning Joe. Web Watch figures this is why the majority of offices offer their staff free coffee — it’s a small cost to pay for happy workers.
Americans are expecting to spend $66 each on Halloween-related costumes, candy, and other items this year. To help you out as to what you will be spending that money on, SPIRIT HALLOWEEN, a nationwide Halloween costume and accessories store, has announced what they are predicting to be the TOP TEN HALLOWEEN COSTUMES FOR 2010:
The cast of the Jersey Shore
Toy Story 3
Nintendo characters Super Mario and Luigi (it’s their 25th Anniversary, you know)
Web Watch is always careful when we visit with our friends who have small children to watch our language. After all, it’s common courtesy to not recite George Carlin’s list of Dirty Words in front of those who are too young to appreciate the nuance of language, or who may be offended overall by hearing words in polite company that would be later yelled out the car window at the a-hole who just cut you off in traffic.
But it may end up that Web Watch has been overly cautious. While we don’t want to be the ones who introduces foul language to our friends’ children, it may be that the deed has already been done long before we showed up for the pot-luck.

That’s right – for these seven days, women around the world are purposefully going out of the house without blush, base, mascara, lipstick, eyeshadow, and other beauty products in order to prove a point: that women prefer other women to wear makeup.

TODAY WE FOUND OUT is a website that allows you to submit exactly that – things that you just found out about something.
There are a few rules to what you submit, such as “factually accurate”, “not based on entirely on Wikipedia”, and the common “give credit to your sources” items — but if you truly did learn something interesting today, why not take the opportunity to write about what you now know?
A while back, Web Watch wrote about the UNDERWEAR ECONOMIC INDEX, the theory being that people buy more underwear when they feel that the economy is doing well – and that people will make do with their existing underpants when the economy is doing poorly.
Driving while texting is being banned in more and more states, and rightfully so. It’s hard enough for Web Watch to walk down the street with every passer-by so engrossed in their Blackberries or iPhones that they’re not paying attention where they’re going – we know how bad it could be with those same people behind the wheel of a car.
All they want you and your teenagers to do is to take two seconds before you start your car, and turn off your cell phone. That’s it. One less distraction for you as you weave in-and-out of traffic on your way to work, school, or fun.
