Guess who was voted as having the worst hairstyle of the 21st century?


By web gangsta | Published:

Some people are known for having a really nice head of hair.

It’s one of the first things you comment on when you see a co-worker with a new ‘do: “hey, did you get a haircut?” we ask, as if getting a hair cut is something that people don’t tend to do every 6-8 weeks or so (depending on the person, of course).

Why are we so fascinated with hair, either having it or being jealous of someone who has more (or less) than we do?

Update on Girls Gone Wild lawsuit


By web gangsta | Published:

So a few years ago, Web Watch wrote about a woman who LOST A LAWSUIT AGAINST GIRLS GONE WILD regarding her appearance in a Girls Gone Wild video, even though she is on film saying “no, I will not do this”.

The jury said that there was “implied consent” just for Tamara Favazza being present in the bar where the filming was going on, regardless of whether she willingly removed her top on her own (which she did not do).

Only 52% of cellphone owners have done this


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s happened to everyone, at one time or another.

You’ve stepped away from your desk, bar stool, wherever — and not 3 minutes later you discover that your cellphone is missing.

Gone, in a blink of an eye.  Your entire life – photos, contacts, important numbers, etc — all gone forever.  Stolen, perhaps. Lost, definitely.

And the chances of finding your phone in the Lost & Found are likely slim to none.

If you want to lose weight, don’t chew gum


By web gangsta | Published:

Losing weight is a constant battle for some.  And as Web Watch has told you previously, it really all comes down to taking in fewer calories than you burn up in a day.  Sure, there are other influences involved, such as the family gene pool or other non-controllable items — but for the vast majority of us, weight loss really is about reducing our food intake in a smart manner.

What was the best video game system ever made?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has owned a fair number of home video game systems over the years.

Among others, we’ve had your basic PONG machine, the classic Atari 2600, a Nintendo Game Boy, Turbografx 16, Xbox, various Playstations, and a Wii.  An entire industry could be devoted to the number of random game cartridges we have lying around for defunct (or soon to be defunct) systems.

How to collect every baseball card ever made


By web gangsta | Published:

Everyone has a collection of some sort.

Some people collect spoons, some people collect Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts from cities they’ve been.  Some people do the Disney or Olympic pin trading thing, while others focus on specific types of artwork, or books.

Sure, it could lead to hoarding — but if your friends go out of their way to get you an item “because you have so many other things just like it”, then you just may already have a collection of sorts.  And maybe it’s time to get some new friends.

How to Silence Earworms


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has told you about earworms before, those pesky little pieces of songs that get stuck in your head so you can’t get them out.

Earworms, for the music industry, are good – they prove that there really is such a thing as a song that you’ll never forget.

What does the average wedding cost?


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that there are three things that one should expect to consider as The Most Important Expenses in your lifetime:  a new car, a new home, and your first wedding.

(Kids, naturally, are also an expense over time — but that’s an expense that returns love and so much more, so Web Watch will leave that one out of this discussion.)

At what age do men look their best?


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that people get better looking as they get older.

More specifically, men get “more distinguished” as they age, and women get more… well, old.

It’s an unfair comparison, but life can be cruel.

And mean.

And hurtful.

And truthful.

The secret to the ultimate workout playlist


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that music is life.  Life without music would be completely miserable and not worth living.

And they also say that for a long life, you have to exercise a bit more than you already lie about doing to your doctor.  You know, like actually getting out there and sweating it out.

Top reasons why people shouldn’t rush into marriage


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch, like many of you, have seen our share of weddings and divorces from friends and family.

We’ve seen friends move from casually dating, to serious dating, to getting engaged and more.  Web Watch knows one person who’s had three weddings in 10 years time.

Some people just like being married, it seems.  Continue reading TOP REASONS WHY PEOPLE SHOULDN’T RUSH INTO MARRIAGE

Can vodka spoil?


By web gangsta | Published:

So while Web Watch is talking about how much food we throw away every year, it occured to us that we may have left one product out of the discussion.

Alcohol.

Supermarkets throw away $2,300 worth of food every day


By web gangsta | Published:

Remember when Web Watch told you about FOOD EXPIRATION DATES?  All about how you can determine the shelf life of food?

And then we told you that it wasn’t just food that could expire, but that COSMETICS HAVE EXPIRATION DATES too?

Well, you at home aren’t the only people who pay attention to the SELL BY, BEST BY, or USE BY dates that you find on your local supermarket products.

It should come as no surprise that the supermarkets themselves do the exact same thing.  And throwing out all that allegedly “expired” food costs each supermarket, on average, about $2,300.

Closing the barn door causes 1/5 of all injuries


By web gangsta | Published:

Women will never understand the shrieks of pain that men felt while watching the FRANK AND BEANS, BEANS AND FRANKS scene in THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY.

For Ben Stiller, having to act as if his junk was caught in his zipper was probably just 10% acting, and 90% muscle memory from the last time it actually happened to him.
