Should You Really Have Sex 16,000 Times a Year?

1546556837977.png

Have you ever wished you were having more sex? Okay, but have you ever wished you were having sex several dozen times a day? (Haha. Come back!)

On Monday, the New York Times published a widely shared op-ed about smartphone dependency, stating that Americans with smartphones are on them 1,460 hours a year — a figure which author Paul Greenberg contends is much too high. Greenberg then goes on to argue that these Americans could use that time better elsewhere, by, for instance, planting trees, reading, lobbying for voter reform, or, most importantly, having an obscene amount of sex.

To make a case for the last of these, Greenberg cites two studies about the negative relationship smartphone use and intimacy: one that concludes “smartphone dependency is significantly linked to relationship uncertainty,” and another that says 29 percent of Americans would rather give up sex for three months than let go of their smartphone for a week. To illustrate just how much our phone addiction has impacted our sex life, Greenberg imagines a world without them and attempts to entice you with an exhausting conditional: If you stopped using your phone for an entire year, you’d have enough free time to have sex a whopping 16,000 times.
Should You Really Have Sex 16,000 Times a Year?

my 1st reaction was why not?
then I did the math - that's like 43 times a day....................
:oops:

I can't do that!!

Woman riding cart while drinking wine from Pringles can barred from Texas Walmart, police say
Wichita Falls police received a rather unique call Friday morning involving a woman drinking wine in a Walmart parking lot.
Employees requested officers to ban a woman from the local Walmart store after she reportedly had been drinking wine from a Pringles can for several hours while riding on an electric cart.

The incident began shortly after 9 a.m. Friday when officers responded to a call to check on a suspicious person in the parking lot of Walmart, 2700 Central East Fwy.

Officer Jeff Hughes, a WFPD spokesperson, said police were told by dispatchers that they were looking for a woman wearing a blue jacket and black pants.

The woman was reportedly riding on an electric shopping cart more commonly used for people with physical limitations. Officers were also told she was drinking wine from a Pringles can.

Hughes said the reporting party said the suspect had been riding around in the store's parking lot since 6:30 a.m. while drinking the alcoholic beverage.

When officers arrived, they found the woman in a nearby restaurant, at which point she was notified that she had been barred from the Walmart location.

Spinning in the Presumpscot, this alien-looking ice disk has Westbrook all abuzz

A disk of ice roughly 100 yards across that formed on the Presumpscot River and was slowly rotating and gaining size Monday had Westbrook buzzing almost as much as when city police spotted a giant snake eating a beaver in roughly the same location in June 2016.
Nothing ever came of those mysterious snake sightings – the reptile was dubbed “Wessie” by locals – but the sight of an alien-looking circle of ice stuck in the river had some people wondering about that section of the river’s knack for producing weird events.
“It kind of looks like a crop circle,” said Doug Bertlesman, a web developer at Ethos Marketing. His company is at 17 Ash St. The four-story building with a roof deck overlooks the river where the ice disk formed.
“It’s pretty wild to look at,” he said. “It’s certainly not every day that you can watch a spinning circle of ice in the river.”

Bertlesman estimated the disk was 100 yards in diameter and appeared to be rotating in a counter-clockwise direction.
Rob Mitchell, who owns the Ash Street office building, spotted the alien-looking disk just before 10 a.m. Monday and immediately notified the city of Westbrook.
“There were ducks sitting on it. The ducks were rotating on this big Lazy Susan. It was a big duck-go-round,” he said.
Mitchell, who noted the ice disk formed in roughly the same location as where Westbrook residents and local police spotted a giant snake in June 2016, said the disk does not appear to be moving downstream or upstream. “It’s stuck right there. It’s not going anywhere,” Mitchell said. “I think it will continue to gain in thickness as long as it keeps spinning.”

Tina Radel, the city’s marketing and communications director, also is a licensed drone operator. She went to the Westbrook River Walk – a 1.2-mile walking path adjacent to the river – and used the city’s drone to take aerial photographs.
Once Radel posted photographs on the city’s Facebook page, public interest surged. She even got a call from the Weather Channel asking if it had permission to use the photos, which show a circle of navy blue-and white ice.
Several people commented on the city’s Facebook page.
“Wessie,” Matt Ireland wrote. “Frozen Crop Circle,” David Lawrence posted. “Cool! Looks like a moon,” Candice Dutil said.
“It’s where the aliens landed,” Larry Liston commented.
Mark Battle, an associate professor of physics at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, said he’s never seen anything like the Westbrook ice disk.
The disk could have rotated clockwise instead of counterclockwise, but Battle attributed the disk’s movement to the river current, the thickness of the ice, and to the friction caused by the ice grinding against the shoreline.
“It’s definitely not being caused by the Coriolis force (that objects experience because of the Earth’s rotation),” Battle said. The Coriolis force or effect tends to deflect moving objects to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

Battle said he looked at Facebook photos of the ice disk.
“It looks marvelous,” he said. “It’s a beautiful thing.”
Man-made ice disks have become popular in countries like Finland and Sweden, where residents are looking for entertaining ways to pass the long winter days.
Last April, residents in Sinclair, a village in an unorganized territory in Aroostook County, created what they believed was the world’s largest ice carousel on a frozen lake. About 100 volunteers cut a circle in the ice that was 427 feet in diameter, and they used four outboard motors to get it rotating.
While Wessie the snake was never captured or found, there was no talk Monday that a reptile could be propelling the ice circle on the Presumpscot. Experts had said that any serpent that might have been living in the river would be unable to survive a Maine winter.

Philadelphia Woman, Mad the Eagles Lost, Allegedly Attacks Girlfriend and Puts Dog in Microwave
:oops:

Police allege Gaskins, her girlfriend and the girlfriend’s dog were staying at a hotel in Hanover Township Sunday. The television was tuned to the Eagles’ playoff game against the New Orleans Saints, which the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles lost 20-14, ending their season.
According to the police statement, Gaskins allegedly began yelling at the television after her team’s defeat, setting off a physical confrontation with her girlfriend. The women allegedly pushed each other before Gaskins forced her to the floor, punching her several times in the face.

The statement alleges the girlfriend headed towards the hotel room’s door, and as she did, Gaskins allegedly threatened her dog, a white Pomeranian.

Police were called to the hotel, where they found the girlfriend, with blood and abrasions to her face and neck.

Inside the room, they removed the white Pomeranian from the microwave.
