You've definitely got a playful streak. For you, being in love is about having fun and enjoying life. Sharing lots of laughs is the best way to keep things fresh. You’re very down to earth when it comes to love.
Ok, I don't want to start something (I might want to start something) but this kind of analysis ticks me off. No, neuroscience does not explain why the brain conjures imaginary monsters. Neuroscience explains that the Troxler effect/staring at an image for a long time warps what you see. WHAT the brain fills in is supplied by a lifetime of cultural information.
You Can Tell Someone's Sexuality by Their Hands and Hair (Usually) Getty Contrary to what 1980s sex comedies taught you, coming out of the closet as gay doesn't automatically give one a raging case of flamboyant. Nor does it guarantee that you're going to wear an ascot at all times or punctuate every sentence with "girlfriend" or a sassy "mmmm hmmm." So, if you're a person who really needs to know the sexuality of the strangers you run into, figuring it out usually isn't as easy as a quick once-over.
If nothing else, this website is devoted to helping you find a mate ... using science (as evidenced here , here and here ). After all, attracting a partner is still a thankless chore full of wearing pants and pretending to care. Or is it?

While that might sound like a snazzy pickup line, it actually means you might marry someone because of the color of the shirt she was wearing the night you met her. According to science, the world around you is dangerously full of hidden aphrodisiacs that can land you in bed, and even in long-term relationships, with someone who's totally wrong for you.
#2. We Feel Like Manhood Was Stolen from Us at Some Point Photos.com You know how every comedy has that stock character of the womanizing, amoral guy who just says what he thinks all the time, and cares only about himself? Joey in Friends , Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men , Sterling Archer in Archer , Gob in Arrested Development , Ashton Kutcher's character in That '70s Show , Michael in our Web series , the title character in my books ?
We're all fairly smart people here, right? So can we agree to stop misusing words which we really ought to know do not mean what we are using them to mean? APOCALYPSE does not mean "End of the World". It means nearly what the English title of the book means, a "Revelation", and unveiling, a disclosure. (see [en.wikipedia.org] ) Verse one of the book says that it is a message from Jesus telling "what must soon take place."
Our sense of smell is the antivirus software of the senses -- we don't pay much attention unless it's telling us about something bad. Sure, we occasionally take the time to appreciate perfumes and flowers and the smell of chocolate-covered bacon, but unless there's dangerous gas or hidden corpses around, nose powers just don't seem all that important. It's not as if we can, like, smell buried treasure, or the location of the cellphone we left on silent. But while you're ignoring it, the stuff your nose is doing in the background borders on freaking magic. After all, your sense of smell can ...
One of our favorite subjects is the way marketers can use psychology to manipulate you into doing what they want (we don't think "brainwashing" is too strong a word ). We know what you're thinking: You're far too cynical to fall for the ads you fast forward through on your DVR or the little tricks employed by marketers and politicians to push your subconscious buttons. But are you sure ? Because science has found ... #5.
You are not who you think you are. Your personality and identity is significantly more malleable than you realize. With a few simple tricks, you can exploit your brain's innate functionality to change just about anything about yourself. Here's how. You Are Not Necessarily the Person You Think You Are You are not who you are, but rather the product of many influences.
Within corporate culture and government agency PR, Orwellian “doublespeak” has become a common way of disguising coercion. Can a “benefit” be beneficial if it’s compulsory? Does an “incentive” do any good if it’s actually a threat ?
Welcome to the 'beautycheck' homepage! If you take a look at the picture to the left, you will quite certainly think that this is a very beautiful face. But what makes you be so sure about that? Finding answers to why we regard one face as being more beautiful than another is actually not as easy as it seems.
If you don't believe in monsters, you're part of a tiny minority of humans. Pretty much all of the cultures on Earth have believed in monsters for most of their history and, even stranger, they all believed in the same monsters . We recently pointed out that every culture has some variation of the vampire legend and that's true of all the standard monsters--zombies, werewolves, etc. Mexico's werewolves leave much to be desired.
