TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?
A mom took to a UK parenting blog called Mumsnet to vent about her daughter’s high school saying that the teen had “too much food” in her lunchbox.
Now this girl, who is vegan, didn’t have a lunch packed with soda, chocolate cake and potato chips. No, her “too much food” consisted of a peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread, a small banana, strawberries, a few grapes, and a less than a handful of dried coconut flakes and raisins.
“I will not be changing what she has for lunch,” the mom wrote. “I would appreciate if you do not make comments on [her] healthy lunch because telling a teenage girl that she has ‘too much’ lunch is far from healthy.” (Pop Sugar)
WOMEN TROLL ON DATING APPS AS MUCH AS MEN
A surprising new survey has found that women troll on dating apps just as often as men.
According to psychologists, trolls have “dark” personality traits and are more likely to be psychopaths and sadists. This means they’re motivated by negative social rewards. They’re happy when others are upset. (ABC.net.au)
MARCH MADNESS MAMAS
The best college basketball team in America is playing in the NCAA Tournament again this year … but you probably won’t see its stars in the NBA.
Why? Because the unquestioned top team is the women’s squad at the University of Connecticut. The Huskies went undefeated this year, but that’s old hat – they haven’t lost since 2014, a total of 107 straight wins.
- They’ve won 104 games by double digits – 60 of those by more than 40 points.
- Their biggest win was a 103-37 victory over South Florida – a team ranked in the Top 20.
- The longest winning streak in men’s NCAA history dates back more than four decades – to when UCLA won a mere 88 in a row.
They begin the playoff run this Saturday, with a game against the University of Albany Great Danes. Woof.
SURFER BECOMES FIRST TO CROSS ATLANTIC OCEAN ON PADDLEBOARD
Chris Bertish of South Africa recently finished a 4,000-mile journey and became the first human to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean on a standup paddleboard.
The journey began on December 6th, 2016, when he left Agadir, Morocco. He encountered countless sharks, huge waves, miserable trade winds, and many other obstacles along the way. But that’s all in the past now. He’s now on dry land, having landed in Antigua, physically exhausted, but also thrilled to have done something no person had ever done before.
