Remember when the Fast and Furious movies were about car thieves? Yeah, that's gone properly out of the window with Hobbs and Shaw -- and I've got to admit, it looks like a total blast. The trailer for the movie is expected to get a high-profile slot during today's Super Bowl, but it debuted online Friday -- and you can watch it right here. This new movie is a a spin-off from the Fast and Furious series featuring two popular characters introduced in the franchise's more recent entries. Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham reunite as ass-kicking frenemies Luke "ice-cold can of whup-ass" Hobbs and Deckard "champagne problem" Shaw. The trailer plays up their rivalry with tons of gags in between the massive fights and outrageous stunts, orchestrated by John Wick and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch. Seriously, how much fun is this trailer?This time Hobbs and Shaw are up against a bulletproof bad guy named Brixton, played by Idris Elba. The action switches from London to Samoa … [Read more...] about Don’t wait for the Super Bowl: Watch the first Hobbs and Shaw trailer here
Excuses for not going to the doctor ranged from "too busy" to "exam room is too cold." Thomas Barwick/Getty Images American men are much less likely to go to the doctor than women, according to the CDC. Now, a new online survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Orlando Health hospital system breaks down the reasons. The survey asked 2,042 people for explanations why they would avoid setting up an annual appointment with a primary care physician. Here's what the men said (they could give more than one reason): 22%: Too busy to go … [Read more...] about Why Men Don’t Like to Go to the Doctor
Some mammals have specific times of year when they mate and reproduce. That's not the case for us primates, though. Wundervisuals/Getty Images Most animals have a mating season, and it's usually a time when food, sunlight and fertility are plentiful. But what about humans? We don't hibernate — Netflix and chill doesn't count — and those with access to modern economies don't have to wait for seasonal resources to put food on the table. "Humans don't have a true 'mating season' simply because sex is had throughout the year, rather than saving it for a specific time," says author and professional matchmaker Dominique Clark. "People want to be together and desire connection most. So they seek relationship, but not because doing so during this season will produce offspring that can survive the harshest winter, but simply because the desire for intimacy and sex have increased." We're part of a biologically classified group known as continuous breeders, which means that we … [Read more...] about This Is Why Humans Don’t Have a Mating Season
Permanent teeth automatically replace baby teeth, right? Nope. Not always. BSIP/Getty Images We all like a visit from the tooth fairy, but isn't it kind of weird that we're born essentially toothless, a set of teeth grows in when we're babies, and then we lose those to make room for our comparatively giant adult teeth? The vast majority of mammals grow two sets of teeth during their lives. Our young are born toothless because mammals produce milk for their young, and mothers definitely don't want to be nursing babies with rows of sharp teeth. Losing our baby teeth — also called deciduous teeth because they fall out of our heads like autumn leaves — allows us to change our diet as we mature, and makes the most of the food-grinding capacity of our growing jaws. So, what happens when we get our primary teeth as babies, but our adult teeth don't come in? Do we just keep our tiny baby teeth forever? There are a few different conditions that could lead to someone not losing … [Read more...] about What Happens If Your Adult Teeth Just Don’t Come In?
