1.) The award for the most unhealthy restaurant in America for 2014 is … the Cheesecake Factory. The Center for Science in the Public Interest’s annual Xtreme Eating survey awarded the Cheesecake Factory for menu items such as Bruléed French Toast, with an impressive 2,800 calories and 93 grams of saturated fat; Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic totaling 2,410 calories; and Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake, a slice of which accounts for 1,500 calories. The single unhealthiest meal in the survey was the “Monster”-sized A-1 Peppercorn Burger, Bottomless Steak Fries, and Monster Salted Caramel Milkshake Meal from Red Robin Gourmet Burgers. That meal came in at 3,540 calories and four days’ worth of sodium.
2.) It was a scene from the movie “The Hangover 3” that was sadly recreated yesterday in South Africa. One of two giraffes being transported in an open-air truck bed hit its head on an overpass. There were tweets and instagram photos of the animals as they were traveling. An SPCA spokesperson confirmed the death of one of the giraffes due to severe head trauma, and are continuing to investigate, and possibly pushing for criminal charges in the incident.
3.) If you are going to be in a bargaining situation, get assistance from a guy with a wide face. A new study has concluded men with wide faces do better when negotiating a deal. Wider faced men seem to have more testosterone, and are therefore more aggressive. They tend to be more financially successful, and have a better chance at scoring a second date. However, there is a downside to the wide faced man. There men are less trusted because they tend to lie to get what they want.
