No joke: Your partner’s stinky farts may save your life!


By web gangsta | Published:

Everyone farts.

And everyone tries very hard to prevent farting in public.  That’s a lot of pent-up gas.

So why the pressure to not break wind in front of others?  Is it society politeness? Is it embarrassment of being labeled a Stink-a-roo?  Being stuck in an elevator with a foul odor for an extended period of time?

By web gangsta | Published:

There is one common denominator in most small talk conversations: “HOW’S THE WEATHER WHERE YOU ARE?

Why is the weather such a topic of discussion? Because it’s safe. Everyone has an opinion on it, and you can’t argue whether someone’s wrong.  If you don’t like the weather, just wait an hour – it’ll likely change.

You don’t have to be smart to be good. Practice doesn’t always make perfect.


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch knows quite a few professional sports players, and in the off-season, we regularly see them continuing to practice honing their skills.

They don’t sit around and eat Butterfingers all day – they really do live, breathe the sports that they love getting paid to play.

Peeing in the Pool can Kill You


By web gangsta | Published:

We know you’ve done it at least once – everyone has pee’d in the pool at least once in their life.

Of course, this is more expected with children and others who have less control of their bathroom habits, but we’re sure that there are one or a dozen adults out there who have peed in the pool – on purpose – on some drunken night.

Heck, we’re fairly certain we saw one of the contestants on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette pee in the hot tub on an episode.  We definitely remember seeing it happen in MTV’s The Real World hot tub, as well as on CBS’s Big Brother.  And Michael Phelps did say that “all Olympic swimmers pee in the pool… all the time!”

If an Olympic athlete will pee in the pool, then how bad could it be for the rest of us?

How many people does a cannibal need to eat to survive?


By web gangsta | Published:

“I’m so hungry I could eat a horse” is a common phrase, but one doesn’t always stop to think about what it means.

Does it mean that you would actually eat an entire horse?  Have you ever stopped to consider whether you actually could eat the whole horse or not?  Sure, we eat a pig from the rooter to the tooter, but we don’t eat the pig all in one seating.

Dogs like tails that wag the right way


By web gangsta | Published:

Dogs are very expressive animals.  You can tell when they’re happy, you can tell when they’re sad. You can tell when they know that they’ve done something wrong.

There’s a reason that dog’s are called Man’s Best Friend, in part because there is that charade of communication that pet owners have with their dog that goes beyond a mere belly rub.

Proof that music can make you drunk


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s nothing better on a cool weekend evening than firing up some tunes and sitting out on the deck with some good friends and having a drink or two.

There’s a reason that people take great pride in their music atmosphere — it’s because a party without music is a bit of a downer.  Music really does help people have a good time.

How much pee does an elephant hold?


By web gangsta | Published:

Different animals can pee different amounts.

College-aged fraternity guys have been known to “pee like a race horse” after (or during) some beer events at the house.

Let’s think about that phrase for a moment — does it mean you’re peeing as much as a racehorse would?  Are you peeing in the same manner that a horse does?  Or are you merely peeing while running around a track?

Language – it’s so complicated.
