Japanese Robot Is Supposed To Cause Baby Fever

Japan, as you might know, has not been reproducing at a replacement rate (2.1 births per woman), and that has a number of social scientists on edge. And so, a robotic baby that cries and interacts somewhat like a real baby -- but looks a little like a giant Tamagotchi -- has been created to convince childless couples to have a kid. The hope is that Yotaro will charm the pants off these couples, and get that birthrate going back north. There are likely skeptics.

Are You Out Of His League?

There are just a few things that all of us can agree upon: 1. Taxes aren't that fun. 2. Healthcare is might pricey. And 3. There is something really unsettling about exceptionally good-looking people dating exceptionally unattractive people. Sometimes, the circumstances are extenuating: he's rich or she wants to look hotter by comparison or he has a fetish or she lost a bet of some kind. The possibilities are endless. But that doesn't keep people from judging them based on looks alone. In fact, a veritable cottage industry (I don't even know what that means) has arisen based upon people's disbelief that SHE IS WITH HIM? A new website wants to let people know, definitively, that they can do better.

Couple Loses Over $3,000 In Wedding Cash

When it comes to weddings, the photographs are a Big Deal. But an even bigger part of the wedding is the gifts. Some companies have literally made their fortunes with gift registries. But not everyone wants to order off the menu, and many wedding guests give cash. After receiving a ton of green at their wedding, a Pennsylvania couple nearly lost over $3,000 as their wedding album, stuffed with the cash, fell off of their car as they drove away.

There has been a bundle of sexy news from Indonesia lately and the hits keep coming.

Science Gives Us A 5-Days-Later Birth Control Pill

Generally, an unplanned pregnancy is the last thing on your mind when a one-night stand is in the offing. That's why pharmaceutical companies have given us Plan B.

The FDA approval is close for a drug called Ulipristal that will provide birth control up to 5 days after conception may have occurred.

Sometimes Breaking Up Without Saying Goodbye Works

Sometimes Breaking Up Without Saying Goodbye Works

The Irish Goodbye (henceforth to be called the IGB). An IGB involves leaving a gathering, perhaps at a pub, bar or boozing hole, without so much as a "good day, boyo" to your compatriots. And as a move to end a fledgling relationship, it's sometimes a pretty good idea. But what about closure? It's a fiction for something new and some breakups should be done by just walking away.
