The Difference Between Men And Woman - Ever wonder why men hate going to the mall with their girlfriends? Well now there's a study to tell us why. New research suggests that men get bored at the mall after a mere 26 minutes while it takes the average woman more than 2 hours to reach boredom levels. The studiers say that this is because men usually have an idea of what they want when they go shopping while women are more open-minded.

Women's browsing shopping style is a form of gathering, while men's more 'mono-focused' style fits the pattern [of] hunting."

Pornostagram Is IG For The Naked - Just in case there weren't enough digital outlets for those looking to share their nude flicks with the world- pornostagram has been created. Pornostagram is an app that allows people to share their nude selfies with their followers. The French creator Quentin Lechemia said that he liked the idea of Instagram but the strict policy against nudes left a market untapped. He wanted a place where adults could share their "sexy" photos. Lechemia said, "At the beginning, it came from personal experience with my girlfriend...We used to send sexy texts and pics to each other and I noticed that in a way or another, no matter your age or gender, you're always a bit ashamed to do so. And I thought maybe by allowing people to apply filters to those pictures it could make the shame disappear and then I enlarged this reflection to social networks...The social networks are a mirror of what we do on a daily basis and sex is everywhere. 30 percent of the searches on the Internet are related to sex and we should be able to share our sex pictures as well, as we should a picture of a pizza." Not sure how synonymous poom pooms and Johnsons are with pizza but Lechemia said "It's not the porn industry. It's just normal people who want to share about sex. That's it."

Yesterday the US Attorney Marshall said, "We're working methodically, and sometimes we remember we're running a marathon instead of a sprint. So, we're working on it. It's better to get it right than to get it fast. I'm satisfied that the FBI is moving forward at the appropriate speed, and they're doing a fine job."
