American breasts are getting bigger while shirts are getting smaller

From the beach to the mall to the office, women seem to be showing off their cleavage more than ever before. Why? According to Elisabeth Squires, author of "Boobs: A Guide to Your Girls," American breasts are getting bigger while shirts are getting smaller.

"We are seeing more cleavage these days for a few reasons. First, the fashion of the day is tight and skinny. At the same time, women are bigger than they were even 15 years ago. Bra fitters tell me that an E cup is the new C cup," Squires said on "Good Morning America."
"We have to remember that while more women are showing more cleavage, you really have to use your breast power responsibly," Squires said. » Full article here

New fitness trend, using vibration plates become trendy

When it comes to the new vibration-plate fitness craze, experts are telling people to shake it, but don't break it. The trendy equipment has been generating lots of buzz. Promoters say vibrating machines are fast workouts that improve flexibility and strength, build muscle and reverse osteoporosis.
The Power Plate, for example, vibrates 20 to 50 times a second in three directions -- which is supposed to increase the effectiveness of a workout.

But researchers are warning of possible injuries from all that jiggling. Concerns include back pain and cartilage damage. One researcher is worried the powerful vibrations could affect the brain. Further studies are under way. » Article here

Manly stuff that is no longer manly.

Once the symbol of nonconformity in a hopelessly conservative political landscape, the tattoo has now become the exact opposite – total conformity posing as nonconformity.

There was a time when a man could get a bull ring pierced into his septum and get a little respect.

Stabbing people
In the good old days, one guy would get into an argument with another guy, the words would turn into fists, and the fists would turn into a few inches of cold steel getting mercilessly plunged into the eye socket of the weaker guy.

Like the tattoo, the motorcycle used to be a counterculture icon – thanks to Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda (two actors who have also lost a significant amount of manliness), the motorcycle was a symbol of freedom, independence, and rebellion.

Enough said.

Whether you like it or not, gone are the days of roses, hastily scrawled love poems, and sweet serenades crooned lovingly outside a fair maiden’s window.

Cop shoots his own daughter, mistakes her for intruder

An off-duty police officer shot and critically wounded his 18-year-old daughter, apparently mistaking her for an intruder after she sneaked out of their home and re-entered through the basement.

Eric Scott, 41, was under the impression his daughter had gone to bed for the night," Stratford Capt. Thomas Rodia said. "He did not expect his daughter to be outside or down in the basement."

Investigators said Tasha Scott left her home late Monday to meet a boyfriend. She triggered a backyard motion sensor light as she tried to enter through a basement door. Awakened by the light, Eric Scott spotted someone moving in the basement bathroom, police said. He fired his department-issued pistol once, hitting the teen in the knee. The bullet traveled up her leg and lodged in her thigh area, police said. The teenager underwent surgery and was listed in critical but stable condition Wednesday morning. Full article here.
