Watching Scary Movies Burns Calories? Someone Actually Did A Study On This?
Yep.

Watching a scary Halloween movie is healthy. You could lose up to 200 calories. Your heart races, your muscles tense, and you’ll occasionally scream and reach out to grab the one close to you. With a different perspective, you might look at going to the movies as exercise.

Researchers tested the theory against some of the classic fright flicks. The top calorie-burning frightening films:

  • The Shining (184 calories)
  • Jaws (161 calories)
  • The Exorcist (158 calories)
  • Alien (152 calories)
  • Saw (133 calories)
  • Paranormal Activity (111 calories)
  • The Blair Witch Project (105 calories)

CELEBS THAT NEVER GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL
I always find these kind of things interesting...

With the presidential election heating up, there’s a lot of talk out there about the importance of education.

While the idea of a college education has definitely taken a hit over the past few years as college grads with gobs of debt not being able to find jobs, very few people would argue that a high school education isn’t important.

But … maybe they should because there are definitely ways to make it in life without a diploma.

Here’s a rundown of some very, very rich and successful guys who didn’t finish high school:

  • Mark Wahlberg
  • Simon Cowell
  • Jim Carrey
  • Charlie Sheen
  • Quentin Tarantino
  • Johnny Depp
  • Tracy Morgan
  • Al Pacino

FOODS THAT WRECK YOUR MOOD

Here’s a rundown of some foods that can actually wreck your mood:

  • Potato Chips – They’re filled with a certain kind of fat that block brain chemicals that make you feel good.
     
  • Holiday Ham – Ham comes from factory farms where pigs are pumped full of antibiotics. They are also injected with sugar, salt, fillers and nitrate preservatives that can trigger low moods, migraines and even swollen ankles.
     
  • Soda – These drinks turn to fat inside our bodies, sending our moods plummeting after the initial sugar rush.
     
  • Bagels – These big hunks of refined carbs result in major energy crashes before lunchtime.
     
  • Peanuts – High in sodium and additives such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), peanuts have been linked to migraines, weakness, burning sensations, wheezing, and difficulty breathing in some people. (Yahoo Health)

5 WAYS TO GET YOUR HUSBAND TO STOP SNORING (ivillage.com)

Stop Unhealthy Habits Drinking too much alcohol before bedtime can encourage snoring by relaxing the muscles of the upper airways and suppressing breathing. Smoking is also associated with snoring because nicotine can irritate the throat and weaken airway tissue, so urge your partner to quit. Check out these all-natural ways to quit smoking and find out what’s fact and what’s fiction when it comes to quitting .

Discourage Sleeping Pills Nix the sleeping pills, at least for him. They may help your partner drift off but he’s likely to snore more: Sleep aids relax those throat muscles and lead to some serious noise.

Hide the Noise Sometimes, despite your best efforts (and sharpest elbow), the snoring doesn’t stop. So consider masking the sound. Use a white noise machine to drown out the racket or invest in a set of earplugs for yourself. Neither will get to the root of the problem but if they can dull the sound, it may make your night more restful.

Consider This Could Be Serious for You Your partner’s snoring might be doing more than just interrupting your dream life. Disrupted sleep can leave you pretty cranky. It’s also harder to concentrate when you’re zonked, a real hazard on the road. We eat more when we’re tired, which could result in a few unwanted pounds.

Consider This Could Be Serious for Him Some snoring is just annoying (to you, at least). But if you notice your partner not breathing between snores -- depriving vital organs of oxygen -- and gasping for air, he could be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to heart attack, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia and even sudden death.
