3 Reasons Why Women Are No Longer Sunbathing Topless


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever been to a topless beach?

Perhaps this is a better question: have you ever been to a topless beach so that you could sunbathe topless yourself?

Chances are – especially if you’re reading this in the US — is that you haven’t experienced the joys of European Sunbathing (as it’s known in Las Vegas).  Unless you count that one time in Cancun where nobody knew who you were and you only did it on a dare from your drunk sorority sister.

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?

Using hospital elevators can kill you


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has told you about all the different ways physicians and other medical professionals spread germs and disease everywhere they go.

From dirty stethoscopes to dirty scrubs (or scrubs worn on airplanes, and then to who knows where!), nurses and doctors are constantly walking around in swirling packs of germs, like “Pigpen” from the Peanuts comic strip.

And it only gets worse from there.

20 Cities with the Dirtiest Restaurants


By web gangsta | Published:

People often don’t complain about a dirty restaurant.

“I’ll bet that our kitchen at home is dirtier than a restaurant kitchen is, so why worry about it?” is a oft-cited statement.  And while that may be true, you’re at least aware of what is or isn’t dirty and take steps to recitify that before you dine.

If you didn’t care about this cleanliness perception, then why do you bother to clean your house before guests arrive? Why polish the silver or wipe down the haze from the glassware?

Exactly – you really are concerned about whether your home kitchen is clean, you just don’t want to admit it.

Top 5 Indicators of a Dirty Restaurant Kitchen


By web gangsta | Published:

If there’s one thing that you should make note of, it’s the FOOD SAFETY INSPECTION notices that are posted in your local restaurants.

There are only two reasons why an Inspection Score is not posted: the manager forgot to do so, or the score is embarrassing to the owner/manager.

The former is seldom likely to happen, as not having the score posted itself is a violation to be noted on the next review.  The latter is more the case.  Some locations do everything they can to hide a low score from being visible to the inquiring public, from placing it far away behind a counter – visible, but not readable; to placing it behind other paperwork on the wall – also visible, but obscured.

We do know of one fast-food chain location that was so proud of their “100 out of 100” score that they made a 2′ x 3′ poster of the inspection and placed it at the front door. No hiding from that.

By web gangsta | Published:

And because Web Watch is all about educating you on new terms and phrases – the medical term for this is “paruresis“.

You’re over 21 years old and still a virgin? That’s perfectly normal


By web gangsta | Published:

A common theme in today’s pop culture is how concerned kids are with when is the “right time” to lose their virginity.

Entire movies have been made on the subject – Tom Cruise’s Losin’ It is probably not on the higher end of his personal accomplishments, we’re fairly certain.  But what once was a Very Special Episode of Blossom or Family Ties, or one of those mandatory Afterschool Specials that we all rushed home to watch together – it’s now become almost a punchline in any major sitcom or movie being made today.
