The Three Main Ways You Might Be Sabotaging Your Children’s Health

In a survey by the YMCA, 89% of parents with kids aged five to ten thought they were either "good" or "excellent" at making sure their kids lived a healthy lifestyle.  But one-third of U.S. kids are overweight or obese.

 Which means a lot of parents are clueless when it comes to their kids' health.  Here's a list from "Time" magazine of the three main ways you might be sabotaging your children's health.  And yeah . . . it's the ones you're thinking of.

 #1.)  Letting Them Watch Too Much TV.  Almost half of the parents surveyed said they let their kids watch more than two hours of TV a day, and 74% of parents said they spent family time doing sedentary things . . . like watching more TV.

'Paula Deen Riding Things' Blog Is Like Butter For the Internet (FT. IMAGE)

Paula Dean Riding Things

With all the serious discussion today, I thought it was about time for a humerous diversion.  Who's with me?

Paula Deen is no stranger to Internet memes: the Southern fried TV chef has been the butt of many a butter joke on the web. A new Deen-obsessed image blog called Paula Deen Riding Things is deliciously bizarre. The Photoshopped works feature a sunglasses-wearing, wine glass-toting Paula riding atop a variety of people, animals and objects, from "The Neverending Story" creature Falkor to one of the titular monsters from "Tremors."

Check out a few of our favorites after the jump and for more, check out Paula Deen Riding Things on Tumblr:

Complaints About Modern Life That Are Total Bologna

It's easy to be negative these days, what with the economy in the crapper . . . and all that turmoil in Egypt.  But a lot of the things people complain about just aren't backed up by statistics.  Here's a list from "Cracked" of the top four.

#1.)  Everything Is So Expensive.  In 1950, you could get a decent car for $500, and gas was about 25 cents a gallon.  But you have to put that in perspective:

A low-end job in the service industry only paid a dollar an hour.  So even though you could get a steak for 50 cents, that was a lot.

The truth is, when you adjust for inflation, the prices of most things have stayed pretty much the same.  And some things have gotten a lot cheaper.

For example, in 1954 a high-end color TV . . . with a 15-inch screen . . . cost around $1,300, which was half a year's salary for some people.
