The results of a 15-year study from Psychology and Aging can pinpoint the exact moment at which you'd best get off an old man's lawn. The study found that most men tend to get generally happier as they get older, as life slows down and security sets in. However, something shifts when men hit 70, and they start getting grumpy. The study was unable to determine exactly what happens at age 70, but declining health and loss of loved ones were both cited as possible reasons men's moods shift. Of course, grumpiness isn't pleasant, but it has its upside. "At least one study found that older men in nursing homes who were grumpy actually lived a little longer," Carolyn Aldwyn, a gerontology professor at Oregon State University and the study's lead author told NPR. "The thought is that these individuals could voice their unhappiness with their current situation and perhaps get more attention and perhaps better service than individuals who suffered quietly" ...

According to the Huffington Post, Ria is 78 years old. She decided to prepare for her first ever plane ride by riding a roller coaster, which is an amazing idea in and of itself. That roller coaster ride was filmed, and it is a reminder to all of us that life can be a pretty amazing thing, when you get right down to it. The video of her first actual plane ride (along with her friend, 71-year-old An), is here and it's just as good ... Discuss


Now, nobody panic. Take a seat. Take some deep breaths. Well, not too deep—that's actually what got us in this mess to begin with. The Irwindale City Council declared the factory that produces the tasty, wildly popular Sriracha hot sauce is a public nuisance, on account of the horrid smell the factory generates. The denizens of Irwindale have been complaining about the Sriracha factory for years, saying the odor burns their eyes, causes nosebleeds and even inflames asthma. So, they're clearly not thinking of us, the consumers, and what we're going to do without Sriricha. We may have to figure it out for ourselves, because the court has ruled that if Sriracha hasn't found an odor-free way to make their sauce in 90 days, they'll be shut down ... Discuss


Wedding sermons are fine. They're full of advice and inspiration, and there's nothing wrong with them. But one thing they're not is a cover of Leonard Cohen's classic "Hallelujah," and they're certainly not "Hallelujah" rewritten to be about the wedding in question, and that gives this Irish priest an edge. If you're going to have your wedding officiant cover Leonard Cohen, this is how you want it done. According to Religion News Service, Chris and Leah O'Kane had no idea their priest was going to bust this out, but hey, the most special wedding present is the wedding surprise ... Discuss


Apparently, Americans aren’t big vacationers. The job-finding website Glassdoor commissioned a Harris Poll that found that employees who actually receive paid vacation time as part of their compensation, used only 51% of it. And, even when they are “on vacation”, American workers aren’t really unplugged from the office. The poll found that 61% of employees still did work during their vacation. Glassdoor’s career and workplace expert Rusty Rueff said that ever-present technology is preventing workers from really taking time off. “Before technology allowed us to be connected 24/7, we were more likely to have actually ‘vacated’ our work for a couple of weeks a year, but now, it appears one full day away is a luxury.” Clark Griswold would be ashamed ...
