A new Harvard study shows that oxytocin--aka "the love hormone"--not only makes men more trusting and nurturing, but also causes them to eat less and choose healthier foods.

The L.A. TIMES
reports that 25 men who got a dose of aerosolized oxytocin in their noses consumed fewer calories, decreased their fat intake and showed improved metabolic function.

The results led the study's lead researcher to note that oxytocin might be "a promising treatment for obesity and its metabolic complications."

It was World Book Day in England yesterday, and at Sale High School students were encouraged to dress like characters from a favorite book.

So 11-year-old Liam Scholes dressed up like Christian Grey from Fifty Shades of Grey
, accessorizing his gray suit with an eye mask and cable ties. For this, he was sent home and told to "modify" his costume.

He did just that after his mom, who thought her son's outfit was "funny," "agreed to disagree" with school administrators. "One of the teachers went dressed as Dexter, and I don't see why sex is seen as more offensive than murder," she explained.

Damn straight!

Harrison Ford was "battered but OK" Thursday after his vintage World War II training plane lost engine power and crash-landed on a California golf course, authorities and family members said.
The 72-year-old actor, who was conscious and breathing when rescue crews reached him, was stabilized and taken to a hospital, where he was in fair to moderate condition, authorities said. Sources familiar with the incident told NBC News that Ford slammed into the plane's console and control stick and that he underwent surgery Thursday night. He suffered a broken arm and a nasty gash to his head, among other injuries, they said. Ben Ford, the well-known restaurateur and the actor's son, said on Twitter that his dad was "battered, but OK" after the crash, which happened about 2:20 p.m. (5:20 p.m. ET).

"Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely," Ford's publicist, Ina Treciokas, told NBC News by email Thursday night.
"He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care," Treciokas said. "The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."
An eyewitness, Howard Teba, an employee at Penmar Golf Course, said he put a blanket under Ford's hip.
"There was blood all over his face," Teba said. "Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him."

The U.S. takes its Girl Scout cookies very seriously, so many cookie lovers will probably be stunned by the Los Angeles Times' latest bombshell: The organization uses two different bakeries to make its cookies, and they turn out remarkably different kinds of treats that often get marketed under the same name.

For example, a company called ABC Bakers makes a Thin Mint that's mintier and crunchier than the one turned out by Little Brownie Bakers, which has a smoother, richer chocolate coating and a more distinct mint taste.

Even worse, the geographic distribution of each bakery's cookies seems completely patchwork and arbitrary, with many U.S. states divided by the two.

When we heard that VAN HALEN was releasing its first live album with DAVID LEE ROTH, we were excited. Then yesterday, they released two cuts from the album . . . we're longer excited. Because they're bad...really bad. The songs they released are "Panama" and "Runnin' with the Devil", and they're just bad, thanks to Dave's vocals. It really sounds like he can't do the job live anymore. "Runnin'" is the better of the two, but only because it's easier to sing.
If you're still interested after hearing these tracks, the two disc set "Tokyo Dome Live in Concert" comes out March 31st. It was recorded in June of 2013. Check out the full track list at Van-Halen.com.

Chris Hemsworth is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and in a series of promos for his appearance, SNL cast member Kate McKinnon makes fun of his unbearably good looks.

One promo features Hemsworth admitting that he's not actually human, but a government-created robot sent from the future, while another shows Hemsworth, at McKinnon's request, attempting to recreate the lift from Dirty Dancing
.

Unfortunately, Hemsworth has never seen Dirty Dancing and winds up putting her in a headlock instead.

Luciano Gutierrez, 66, was photographed last week wearing a shirt that reads "WARNING: I DO DUMB THINGS" after getting arrested on his ninth drunk driving charge, The Smoking Gun reports.
The Texas man was initially pulled over and charged for the incident in November, but was arrested on a warrant on Thursday. Bell County officials reviewing the case ended up bumping the charge up to a felony after realizing that Gutierrez already had more than three DWI convictions, according to KBTX. Police had a "good laugh" about his choice of attire, according to KCEN.

The good news about coffee just keeps on coming!

A new study from Kangbuk Samsung Hospital in Seoul, South Korea, finds that drinking three to five cups of coffee per day may reduce your risk of a heart attack.

Researchers found that the more coffee a person consumed, the lower their levels of coronary artery calcium (CAC), which is an early indicator of clogged arteries and cardiovascular disease.

The study found the lowest CAC levels in patients who consumed three to five cups of coffee per day; those who drank more than five actually had the highest CAC ratios among all the study's participants.

Vince Vaughn's latest comedy, Unfinished Business, hits theaters this Friday. But what if he knew his business was about to be finished?

In a recurring column called "24 Hours to Live,"
Maxim asked Vaughn how he'd prefer to die. "I can tell you how I don't want to go: waiting in line to pay parking tickets and having a light from the ceiling fall on my head," he replied.

When asked what he expects people will say while standing over his casket, Vaughn said, "God, that man loved to tap-dance."

And for his last vacation, Vaughn would visit the South Dakota home of Little House on the Prairie
author Laura Ingalls Wilder.

As for why, he admitted, "I'm honestly not sure."

Nelson Shanks is an artist who got the incredible opportunity to paint BILL CLINTON'S official presidential portrait, for the National Portrait Gallery. That's quite an honor. So naturally he decided to STICK it to him.


He says he secretly hid a reference to MONICA LEWINSKY in the painting. There's a strange shadow on the wall next to Clinton in the shape of a DRESS.


Nelson says when he was painting the room, he even put a blue dress like Lewinsky's on a mannequin, and painted its shadow. We're assuming Bill wasn't in the room by that point.


Quote, "The reality is, [Clinton's] probably the most famous liar of all time. He and his administration did some very good things, of course, but I could never get this Monica thing completely out of my mind and subtly incorporated it."


He also says the Clintons know about the Monica reference, and have tried to get the painting removed from the gallery. The museum says that's a lie . . . but they're not currently showing it, since there are so many OTHER Clinton paintings.

Saturday Night Live hit a controversial chord this weekend by including a sketch about ISIS that viewers found both shocking and offensive.

Titled "Father Daughter Ad," the skit starred Taran Killam and host Dakota Johnson in a parody of Toyota's recent commercial featuring a father dropping his daughter off to join the Army.

However, the SNL
version found Killam dropping Johnson off to join ISIS. "You be careful, OK?" Killam's character says, before Johnson's character reassures him, "Dad, it's just ISIS."




The episode also included a hilarious featurette called "Say What You Wanna Say." Inspired by Sara Bareilles' song "Brave," the segment featured cast members including Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon celebrating the joy of being brutally honest.

Video of a husky puppy "talking" has set the Internet abuzz! The pup, named Ramsey, is seen voicing his opinion as his owner tries and fails to hold in her laughter. At the moment, the video has over 3 million views on YouTube.
According to The Huffington Post, owner Kayla Cagnola said Ramsey was about 8 weeks old in the video, and had just received a scolding for eating her roommate's dog's food.
"When we told him to stop eating it that's when he started 'talking,'" Cagnola explained. "I guess he was trying to tell us that he was mad at us for not letting him eat the other dog's food!"

Hajime, a YouTube user from Japan, is the brains behind the elaborate stunt which involved pouring endless bottles of the sugary drink into a deep bath.
He then frantically straps a selection of Mentos mints to his body with Sellotape before jumping into the bath.
The bath begins bubbling furiously as litres of Coke explode out of the half full bottles. The end result is not as dramatic as we would have hoped, and the funniest part of the video, which has been viewed over four and a half million times, is the mess he's left with at the end. One thing's for sure - we don't envy him cleaning that lot up.

Ronda Rousey needed just 14 seconds to beat Cat Zingano on Saturday (February 28th), setting a new record for the quickest victory in UFC history by one second. The speed of the win wasn't a fluke for the bantamweight champion, who won a bout last summer in just 16 seconds. The 11-0 Rousey's success has created a mixed martial arts superstar for the UFC, but also presented it with a challenge in finding credible opponents for her. UFC President Dana White jokingly said, "Yeah, we're going to move her to the men's division and see the odds."
