  • The US isn't quite as happy as we'd like everyone to think we are

    Posted by Otis Day

    The world's happiest people apparently are NOT in the US… we are just 33rd on the list of "most upbeat" countries.

    The poll of nearly 150,000 people around the world found that seven of the world's 10 countries with the most upbeat attitudes are in Latin America.

    Panama and Paraguay tied for the top spot on the list.

    On the other end Singapore was the saddest country, followed by Armenia.... (Kardashian land).

  • NASA explains why the world won't end Friday

    Posted by Otis Day

    NASA released a video dated December 22nd, and titled "Why the World Didn't End Yesterday."

    This is great and all...but if they're wrong, will the cockroaches still be around to tell them they're wrong?

  • The number one top earning woman in music for 2012 was...

    Posted by Otis Day

    Britney Spears made $58 million over the past year, more than any other woman in the music industry. Her "Femme Fatale" album was certified platinum in the U.S. and her tour made up for most of the cash. Endorsements and a fragrance line added millions more.

    Spears beat out Taylor Swift, who came in at No. 2 with $57 million. Taylor made most of her money on the road as well, making over $1 million per night. She also got big money from endorsements with CoverGirl and Sony and there's more cash on the way. Her latest album, "Red", sold 1.2 million units its opening week, the best debut by any artist since 2002.

    Rihanna was third with $53 million. Along with touring money and her hits, she cashed in on endorsements with Vita Coco and Nivea, as well as her fragrance Reb'l Fleur.

    No. 4 was Lady Gaga with $52 million and Katy Perry rounded out the top five with $45 million.

    Other ladies on the list included Madonna with $30 million, Beyoncé with $40 million (she'll earn even more next year when her $50 million deal with Pepsi kicks in), and Nicki Minaj, who barely missed the top ten.
