Junior Lifters, Dead Bugs 

In a discovery that should really shock no one, a small Indiana University study suggests that kids who carry heavier toys around may burn more calories than kids who carry lighter toys around. Thank you, Doctor Obvious! But, I'm all for kids getting better exercise, and hey - if the toys are heavier, they'll just knock your annoying little sister cold instead of just make her scream at you!

Before you want babies though, you should always use a condom during sex. Besides protecting against pregnancy, condoms are known to help block HIV, gonorrhea, herpes, chlamydia, and now, HPV. College women whose partners always used a condom had a 70% reduced incidence of new HPV infections. I can't help but wonder if the number isn't higher, and a few of the girls just forgot a few times? Either way, it's probably moot, now that we have the HPV vaccine, but just another good reason to wrap it up!

I wonder if this is true...my mom just forwarded me an email claiming that a white paper plate, containing a bit of Lemon Scent Joy-laced water, will act as an effective mosquito trap. Allegedly, it attracts the 'squiters, they drink the water, and die promptly. Anyone know if this works??
