Will technology soon change our fantasies? One futurologist believes that as virtual reality becomes more popular, some of us might trade hunky firemen for aliens or elves. “We can build characters around toys, robots and AIs. There will be a lot of temptation,” Tom Cheesewright said. For example, people might want to roleplay with characters that do not exist in real life. However, there might be a gender divide: A Lelo survey of 4,000 participants found that about 44% of British men said they would do the deed with a robot, while only 21% of women would be willing to do the same.

Please is not the magic word — It’s a strategic weapon: UCLA research suggests that people use the word “please” as a secret weapon. The recent study found that people are more likely to mind their manners when they think someone will say no to their request. Researchers analyzed 17 hours of recorded video. In over 1,000 observed requests, people said “please” just 7% of the time. People were more likely to use the word if someone had declined a similar request in the past, or if the person they were asking was doing something incompatible with the task. For example, asking someone who is busy to do something else. This could also mean that when we hear the word “please,” we might assume the other person thinks we don’t want to help them. “In the wrong context, saying ‘please’ may run the risk of sounding pushy or dubious about another’s willingness to help,” Andrew Chalfoun said….

Could you identify a female psychopath? A new study from New Mexico suggests that a clue could be in how often a woman moves her head. By analyzing interviews of women being interviewed by police, researchers discovered that, just like male psychopaths, women with psychopathic traits tended to keep their heads very still. Female inmates who kept their heads still could also be more likely to reoffend, although more research is needed. Psychopaths may use this lack of motion to hide clues regarding their true intentions. Dr. Clive Boddy of Anglia Ruskin University said psychopathy in women could also show itself in the form of seductive and manipulative behavior…..More HERE

Soliz’s ex, Nicole Mancilla, claims he cheated on her with Spears and doesn’t support their children. Nicole says,  “He was married, and now he denies his children. He neglects his children for her. He’s on probation, so if he officially lives at her house, they have access to searching her house so that’s why he still has an address here. He is the EBT Nick Cannon.’’ Britney posted; “I honestly wish my life was as wild as it has been portrayed !!!” Either way, some stuff actually has happened to my foot and I might have to get surgery … fingers crossed, hopefully not.”

A Chinese woman who was having an affair with a married businessman is now seeking an inheritance for her son. The businessman passed away in 2021, but the Guangdong woman named Leng claims that she conceived the man’s son by using her eggs and her lover’s sperm. Her eggs were fertilized at a private clinic and she gave birth to a boy named Xiaowen. Now, the woman is seeking part of her deceased lover’s estate for her son. However, Wen was unable to prove that her lover gave consent to use his sperm before he passed, and her case was dismissed. “I hope the wife makes a counter-claim against the mistress,” one appalled commenter said on Weibo.
