Can You Be Successful And Married?

Can You Be Successful And Married?
Women

I mean, I always thought so. My mother has been the Vice President of her division of the company she works for for many years now, and has always managed to run our household in a way that continues to amaze me (even if I don’t always show my appreciation, sorry ma!).

Which is why I’m confused by this new study that was conducted by the University of Minnesota. Researchers and conductors of the study have claimed that successful women can only be successful if they’re single.

The study, which consisted of examining the populations of each U.S. state, found that women tend to make more money and have successful careers in areas with a lack of single men. Researchers also found that college women are only ambitious when there’s a lack of available men on campus.

I call bullshit, and laugh at these researchers in Minnesota. What do you ladies think?

‘Don’t Touch Me!’ This Parrot Really Doesn’t Like Being Touched (Video)

This is the most polite exchange I’ve ever heard between a parrot and its owner. Of course, that’s almost entirely because of the accents (as well as the fact that I haven’t had the chance to hear many pet owners having conversations with their birds), but it’s still pretty impressive. However, there is something about […]
