A South Dakota man accidentally shot himself after falling asleep on the porch at 2am, holding a loaded gun.

The Cure For Stanky Feet:  Socks Infused With Coffee

A company called "Ministry of Supply" has created socks that are fused with carbonized coffee to absorb sweat and odor that usually causes stinky feet.

The socks are made from a mix of cotton and recycled polyester, and the company claims that the carbonized coffee works exactly like a Brita water filter.

Lab tests reportedly show the socks to be three times more effective at absorbing smells than regular cotton.

The project has already surpassed its Kickstarter goal 4 times over, but it's still up for a few more days.

Shop Shop Til He Drops: Men Get Bored Shopping After 26 Minutes, Women 2 Hours

According to a study… it takes men just 26 minutes of shopping to become bored.... while it takes women two hours. 

Researchers surveyed men and women about shopping.  They found that men are ready to go home after less than 30 minutes of shopping and one in four men admit they get SO fed-up, they leave their partner and go home. 

Eight in 10 men find clothes shopping with their partner boring; 45% admit they avoid shopping with their other-half at all costs.

It takes women two hours to get bored with shopping-- and most often, it's because they haven't found anything they really like.

Happily Married Means A Healthier Ever After

Happily married couples are much healthier than unhappy couples. 

Researchers followed 1,681 married individuals over 20-years.  They found those with conflict in their marriage were more likely to report poor health.

One reason for this......  Happily married spouses encourage one another to stay current on doctor's appointments, sleep better, drink less and participate in healthy activities.

Hero Teen!  Great story!

An Iowa teen took a drunk driver's keys after a deadly accident so he would not drive away.


The 31-year-old suspect was going the wrong way when he hit the teens, killing one of them.


When the girl crawled out of the crash, she told the man to call the cops and he refused, so then she took his keys.
