Story 1: Can’t Remember Someone’s Name? This Website Could Help
If you always forget people’s names, you probably won’t remember this website either. But it could help . . .
FlowingData.com has a tool to help you GUESS someone’s name. All you need to know is the first letter of their name, and the decade they were born in.
When you enter those two things, it spits out the 20 most common names for people born that decade. And it also tells you how likely each one is.
For example, if you’re a man born in the ’80s and your name starts with “B”, there’s about a 50% chance your name is Brian, Brandon, or Ben.
Or if you’re a woman born in the ’90s, there’s over a 40% chance your name is Brittany, Brianna, or Brooke.
It’s fun to play around with even if you don’t need to remember someone’s name. Just google “FlowingData name guess.”
Story 2: The Main Thing That Drives Us to Be a Good Friend Is . . . Pure Jealousy
It’s important to be a good friend . . . even if your motivations are VERY questionable.
According to a new study out of Oklahoma State University, the main thing that drives us to be a good friend to someone is . . . jealousy that they might like their other friends more than us if we don’t step it up.
The researchers found we’re even more jealous of a person’s other friends than their new significant other, quote, “Which means what makes us most jealous is the possibility that we might be replaced.”
Story 3: A 50-Year-Old Woman Searching Google Earth Found an Obscure Island Shaped Just Like Male Genitalia
It’s been a while since the world had a great EXPLORER . . . a real Vasco da Gama or Ponce de Leon. So meet the newest one: Vasco da Gonads. Ahem. You’re welcome. Fine. Would you prefer Penis de Leon?
There’s a 50-year-old woman named Joleen Vultaggio in Sterling Heights, Michigan, whose hobby is exploring Google Earth for unmapped places. And she just found an island in the Pacific Ocean that qualifies.
And the island is . . . shaped just like male genitalia.
It’s part of the Trinity Islands, which are off the coast of a French territory called New Caledonia, about 750 miles east of Australia. So it’s not like Joleen can claim it for her own . . . she’ll probably have to go to war with France over it, then win and claim it.
Joleen says she shared it with her Facebook group of other explorers, and they all were impressed by her discovery . . . and the island’s notable shape.
Joleen also said, quote, “I’d love to go and travel there and sit on the [d***].” No really. That’s her actual quote. I might be in love.
