Hey, guys -- you may want to use this time at home to brush up on your grammar …A new study found that when it comes to online dating, the number one turn off for women is bad spelling and grammar. How important is grammar to women? 45% of those surveyed said that even if they were physically attracted to someone on a dating app, they wouldn’t be interested if that person used improper spelling or grammar. Only 24% of guys felt that way. (Best Life)
Streaming through a pandemic …A Fortune-SurveyMonkey poll found that 45% of adults watch streaming services daily. To put that in perspective, back in October, a similar poll found that 29% of U.S. adults watched streaming services every day. By mid-May, that number jumped to 45%.
One of the staples of July 4th – the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island – is still happening this year …but it will be a little different. Instead of an outdoor event, the contest will take place indoors – without an audience. 12-time Nathan's championJoey Chestnut is bummed that there won’t be a crowd – but he isn’t worried about the new conditions. In fact, he thinks it might make things easier.
"There's a little bit of a bonus 'cause we're gonna be eating in air conditioning and there are less eaters, so they're making less hot dogs so they might taste better," Joey told TMZ. "There's a good chance that we might have better conditions for a world record and I'ma be pushing for it."
How many hot dogs would that be? The record is 74, but Joey thinks 77 is possible. "If I'm feeling it, if I'm in the perfect rhythm, 77 is doable," he said.
So long, Segway. Remember when Segways made their debut back in 1999? The two-wheeled vehicles were hailed as the wave of the future. Unfortunately, they never really took off … except with mall security and some police departments. Due to a lack of sales and a small market, the Segway will soon be a relic. According to a spokesperson for the company, July 15th will be the last day of production for the Segway PT. Segway president Judy Cai said in a statement, “This decision was not made lightly, and while the current global pandemic did impact sales and production, it was not a deciding factor in our decision.” (Newser)
Workout masks …Working out with a mask is a no fun. Which is why Under Armour just launched a line of face masks designed specifically for working out. The mask has a moldable nose bridge to keep it in place and prevent the dreaded glasses fog, and it’s made with lightweight spacer fabric. There’s also an air pocket to keep the mask off your mouth for better airflow. The mask also has a third layer of material made with their ISO-Chill technology, which keeps the mask feeling cool against your skin, and it’s treated with something called PROTX2 -- which inhibits the growth of bacteria. The masks are $30 each and comes in 4 sizes, small to extra large. (GMA)
