Diamonds? Hell no, women want plasma TVs!

It looks like diamonds are no longer a girl's best friend. A new survey, commissioned by the cable television network Oxygen, said three out of four women would prefer a new plasma TV to a diamond necklace.

Even shoes lost out, with 86 percent of women surveyed saying they would rather get a new digital video camera as a gift instead of a pair of designer shoes.

The survey indicates the gender-technology gap is closing, with women on average owning 6.6 technology devices, while men own 6.9. The "Girls Gone Wired" survey polled 1,400 women and 700 men. Article here.

Brazilians have the most sex in the world

Hong Kong people have the least sex in the world, managing it less than once a week, a survey has found. But that may be because they derive so little satisfaction from the act, the study by pharmaceutical company Pfizer, makers of the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra, revealed today.

Residents of the southern Chinese territory have sex 3.55 times per month, almost half of the global average of 6.48 times, according to the survey of 12,500 people from 27 countries.

Brazilians spend the most time having sex: they do it 7.9 times a month with France coming second with 7.7 times and Turkey ranking third with 7.4 times.

In contrast, Mexicans were found to get the most satisfaction from sex, with the Brazilians second and the Spaniards ranked third.
Hong Kong's dissatisfied lovers, a sorry bunch who repeatedly bottom out in sex surveys and were once found to prefer work to sex, seem to have problems getting started.

Some 58 percent of the male respondents in the territory admitted they could not always raise sufficient interest, while 80 percent of females said their partners were not always up to the job.

Ng Man-lun, dubbed "Doctor Sex" locally and vice president of the Hong Kong Sex Education Association, said most men in Hong Kong refused to face the decline of their sex ability. Article here.

Drunk'n thieves steal U-Hauls and crash them?

Thieves apparently under the influence of alcohol stole six U-Haul moving trucks and went on some destructive Mojave Desert joyrides, authorities said.

Four of the dented rental trucks were found abandoned later but the California Highway Patrol was still looking for two of the missing U-Hauls. There were no arrests.

"This is a first," U-Haul rental office owner Monica Hall said.

The thieves apparently got the vehicle keys out of large drop box used for after-hours key returns. The box was ripped off a concrete pillar in front of the office between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Monday, Hall said.

Judging from the smell of the recovered trucks, the thieves were likely boozed up, CHP investigators said. The heists were discovered just before dawn when the CHP got a report of a hit-and-run accident near 90th Street East and Palmdale Boulevard.

"It looked like they had just dumped them there and crashed into each other while doing it," Morado said. A fourth U-Haul was recovered in Palmdale. Article here.

People waste 1.86 hours a day at work

A new survey by Salary.com and America Online found the average U.S. worker fritters away 1.86 hours per 8-hour workday -- not including lunch and scheduled breaks.

That's actually an improvement from last year's inaugural Salary.com/AOL survey, which showed workers squandered 2.09 hours a day.

Bill Coleman, Salary.com's senior vice president of compensation, said the results could reflect a slightly more energized work force due to an improving economy. Or maybe fewer hard-core slackers were polled this year.

This year's biggest time-killer was personal use of the Internet. Of the 2,700 people quizzed in the unscientific survey, 52 percent said they wasted more time online than any other way. (The survey, by the way, was conducted online, and some responded: "I waste my time filling out surveys like this.")

Other top time-wasters included: socializing with co-workers, running errands and spacing out. "Staring blankly at the computer screen remains to be quite a popular choice," the study concluded.

In addition to polling workers, Salary.com surveyed human resource managers, who said companies assume workers waste nearly an hour each day. The difference between the slacking that companies budget for and the true amount costs U.S. companies a combined $544 billion per year, according to the survey. Article here.

Someone cancelled couples wedding reception

A couple's big day was nearly ruined by a malicious caller who cancelled their wedding reception.

Emma Moschakis went to decorate the Archers Road social club in Southampton on the eve of her wedding only to find someone had cancelled the event.

"I just felt sick. I could not believe it was happening and I just ran out the door in tears," she told BBC News. Family and friends rallied around and another venue was found. Police are now investigating who made the call.
The 25-year-old mother-of-two from Southampton said when staff told her someone had cancelled the event she was left speechless. "A load of emotions ran through me - my mind just blanked."

Her husband Anthony said their friends and family managed to save the day. "We were getting married at 12:30 so we only found out at 11 that everything was sorted and arranged."

The reception on Saturday for 100 people was eventually held at a local restaurant. Article here.

Lindsay Lohan is a f*ckin liar

Lindsay Lohan has admitted that she lies about the people she dates and has sex with. Lohan likes to keep the tabloid magazines guessing, so she will usually pretend she is dating someone she isn't.
Lohan tells Elle magazine: "I say things that aren't true a lot... If I was dating one person (I'd) probably tell them I was dating someone else and then I'd call my friend and be like, Do you mind if I say that we're dating? I figure I'll fuck with them (tabloids), because they fuck with me." via
