Bonehead Of The Day:

35-year-old Amani Ibrahim was shopping with her three children at the Orland Square Mall in Illinois when she decided she really needed some new makeup.

Instead of buying it, however, Patch.com is reporting she stole the Sephora products off the shelves and gave the goods to her 12-year-old daughter to put in her bag. The family was stopped by a guard at the store who spotted the mom grabbing the makeup but immediately put the blame on her tween daughter. 

"Amani advised me it was her daughter ... who committed the retail theft and not her," the guard said, according to police. It turns out, Ibrahim has six prior theft convictions on her record, but no word on whether any of her children were pawns in those capers.

Maybe You Were Born To Hate Working Out

Does the idea of running a half marathon have you running for the hills…you know, for a nice spot in the shade with a bucket of Ben & Jerry’s? You’re not lazy. You were just born to hate exercise.

A new study published in “The Journal of Physiology” found that the desire and motivation to exercise could be, at least in part, genetic. Woohoo! Now I can stop lying about how I am too busy to work out and just blame my DNA.

Researchers bred mice over many generations in order to separate them into two distinct groups: those who happily spent hours on running wheels and those who, for the most part, avoided them. Brain activity in the more active rats showed they were primed to find running rewarding, even before they had even done much of it.

I guess now we can tell why some of those people that fly by in a sweaty blur are smiling, and others are hating life. The sad ones are just the little fat rats who are running from their predisposition to hate exercise.

What's Your Budget For Prom?

Spending on the high school galas is poised to plummet 14-percent this year, with experts blaming everything from the weather to waning interest in higher-end teen fashions. The average US household plans to spend $978 this year on prom dresses, tuxedos, dinners, limo rentals and other prom-driven needs, according to a telephone survey of 4,000 families nationwide by Visa.

Italian Man Gets 6 Months Sentence Over Noisy Sex

In Italy a 42-year-old man who was the subject of a complaint by 12 of his neighbors, who said the loud moaning and screaming coming from his girlfriend during their sexual activity ‘disturbed the peace’ in their condominium.

 

The man was tried for stalking and plans to appeal his jail sentence — and being punished for ‘being too good at sex.’A dozen angry neighbors in Vigodarzere, Padua, filed a civil lawsuit after getting fed up with his lover's passionate screams.

 

They claimed "the moans disturbed the peace in the condominium and the building's decorum," reports TGCom24.  The 42-year-old was, somewhat bizarrely, tried for stalking. During the hearing he claimed he was being punished for "being too good at sex".

 

He also argued that there was a difference between "stalking" and "noises," reports The Local.But he was found guilty and a judge jailed him for six months, a sentence which he now intends to appeal.
