In this day and age, this makes her a unicorn. Not only, was Tina Fey in her mid-twenties when she had sex for the first time, but she was revealed it to millions of people on the David Letterman Show.
It was with the man who eventually went on to be her husband. When Letterman brought up other people who had sex for the first time in their mid to late twenties, the ever so hilarious Tina Fey replied with; “yes, but [unlike me], they made a choice.”
Finally, some training of the world’s oldest profession! For €100, students are taught the history of prostitution, how to use erotic toys, as well as popular positions contained in the Kama Sutra (so both theory and practice). Ninety-five people, from the age of 19 to 45, signed up for the diploma-which takes two hours each day.
Prostitution is a multibillion-pound industry in Spain, even though Spain is a Catholic country where prostitution is illegal. The reason the course was given permission to ensue was because advertisements for the course did not directly promote prostitution, constitute fraud, or were aimed at minors. Instead, it was sold as an educational program on the history, rules, and regulations around prostitution in Spain.
In a study requiring them to write out 'door' 30 times in 60 seconds, 68 percent of participants began to doubt that 'door' was a real word.
You’ve probably experienced repeating a word so many times that it doesn’t sound like a word, but have you ever considered that you could repeat a word so many times that you don’t believe it’s a word? Chris Moulin, of Leeds University, asked 92 volunteers to write out “door” 30 times in 60 seconds. Around 68% of participants began to show symptoms of ‘jamais vu,’ such as the doubt that “door” was even a real word.
Jamais vu is the phenomenon of recognizing a situation, but still feeling that it is unfamiliar. Dr. Moulin believes that a similar brain fatigue underlies the reason some schizophrenia patients believe that a familiar person has been replaced by an imposter.
Hurricanes in Australia were originally named after local politicians that the weather man did not like.
Talk about professionalism. The pioneering Australian weatherman Clement Wragge began assigning names to tropical cyclones in the late 19th century. Initially, he used the Greek alphabet and characters from Greek and Roman mythology.
But that just wasn’t quirky enough for this renowned nut job. One day, he decided to get all passive aggressive and started to name cyclones after local politicians that he did not like. Thus, he was able to proclaim that the “officials” were “causing great distress” or “wandering aimlessly around the Pacific.” The practice was initially widespread but soon blew over.
Emotional abuse is an understated and elusive problem. It's not taken as seriously as physical abuse nor is it as well known as physical abuse, but it is far more prevalent. While it does not leave physical scars, it can make life unbearable for those who suffer from it.
Emotional abuse is the subjecting of a person to psychological trauma, including depression, anxiety, stress, etc. Acts of emotional abuse include verbal aggression (e.g.saying something with the intention of upsetting someone), dominant behavior (e.g. Preventing someone from seeing family/friends), and jealous behaviors (e.g. Accusing a partner of having another relationship)
The silent treatment is a tactic that doesn't take into consideration the rights and responsibilities of both parties involved in a disagreement, but rather it deflects the blame on the party receiving the silence treatment.
This shifts the power balance to the side of the person giving the silence treatment, and often leads to them getting their way. Prolonged, severe, and routine uses of the silent treatment are considered by many behavioral psychologists to be a tell-tale sign of ongoing or future emotional abuse.
