The More Selfies a Couple Takes, the Less Likely They Are to Stay Together

I’m not sure how many selfies a couple SHOULD take together.  But if anyone ever suggests you’re going OVERBOARD on them . . . that’s not a good sign.

According to a new study, the more selfies a couple takes, the less likely they are to stay together.

The researchers say it’s because taking a ton of selfies is a sign that one or both of you is ANXIOUS and INSECURE about your relationship . . . so you’re overcompensating with photos to show the world that things are totally perfect.

A Paralyzed Student’s Mom Got an Honorary Degree After Going to Every Single Class with Him

A 29-year-old guy named Marty O’Connor fell down some stairs about five years ago, and ended up paralyzed from the neck down.  But he didn’t let it stop him, and neither did his mom . . .

He enrolled at Chapman University in California two years ago to get his master’s degree in business.  But he couldn’t take notes and needed help with his exams.

His mom Judy was a teacher in Florida, but retired early and moved across the country to help him.  Then for two years, she sat through EVERY SINGLE CLASS with him.

He got his MBA this past Saturday.  But here’s the best part . . . the school decided to give JUDY an honorary MBA too.

Marty suggested it, and the board of trustees decided Judy deserved it.  But she didn’t know until she pushed him on stage in his wheelchair on Saturday.  Right after he got his diploma, they announced she was getting one too.

She told a reporter that as a mom, she just wanted to help her son.  But being back in school was great because she’s a huge “geek.”  So she loved every minute of it.



7-Eleven Has More Caffeine in Its Coffee Than Any Other National Chain

If the biggest thing you want out of your coffee in the morning is “oh my God, wake me the eff up please” . . . a new study figured out where you should buy it.

Buzzfeed bought 24 cups of coffee from four different major national chains:  Starbucks, 7-Eleven, McDonald’s, and Dunkin’ Donuts.  Then they had a lab analyze the cups to figure out every chain’s average caffeine.

And the most jacked up coffee is from . . . 7-Eleven.  Their cups had an average of 280 milligrams of caffeine.

Starbucks was second at 267 milligrams . . . McDonald’s has 227 milligrams . . . and Dunkin’ Donuts has 220 milligrams.

After Buzzfeed got the results, they asked people if they’d consider switching to 7-Eleven now that they know it’s got the most caffeine . . . and 14% said yes, they’re planning on switching.
