Men Who Like Spicy Food Have Higher Testosterone Levels

If you want to figure out how “alpha” your man is, try taking him out for something spicy. According to a new French study, men who prefer hotter foods tend to have higher testosterone levels than man who prefer mild foods.

The research, recently published in the journal Physiology & Behavior, polled 114 men aged 18 to 44 on their spice preferences. The men were also served a dish of mashed potatoes, and allowed to put as much hot sauce or salt as they liked on it.

The University of Grenoble researchers found that men with higher testosterone levels (as tested by their saliva) both indicated a greater preference for hot sauce, and used more of it to season the potato. The amount of salt used, however, had no relation to testosterone levels.

A man’s preference for capsaicin, the compound in chili peppers that makes them spicy, has been previously linked to dominance behaviors, aggression and risk-taking, the researchers note. Click here to continue reading via Huffington Post.

6 jobs that actually exist in this world.

1. ICE CREAM TASTER

ice-cream

Yes, this is an actual paid position. John Harrison, he has the most delicious job in the business. As Official Ice Cream Taster for Dreyers Ice Cream (not to be confused with Breyers), John gets paid to sample three cartons of each flavor daily to check product quality. He claims the gig isn’t all fun and games since he must maintain a strict, spice-free diet; however, being surrounded by Rocky Road sounds like a sweet deal nonetheless.

2. LAUGHTER THERAPIST

ydR97sI

Goodbye Tears.. laughter may just be the best medicine. Laughing is an excellent way to reduce stress in our lives, and can help you to cope with and survive a stressful lifestyle. We were born with the gift of laughter. Laughter is a natural medicine. It lifts our spirits and makes us feel happy. Laughter is a contagious emotion. It can bring people together. It can help us feel more alive and empowered. Laughter therapy, also called humor therapy, is the use of humor to promote overall health and wellness. It aims to use the natural physiological process of laughter to help relieve physical or emotional stresses or discomfort. HAHAHA

3. Feng Shui Consultant

Feng Shui can be used in any space – home, office, garden, store, etc. Accordingly, a Feng Shui decorator will account for color, lighting, and organization in a room. Feng Shui consultants can be self-taught, but may also have formal certification or training. Go on, organize.. and get paid.

4. Pick-up Artist Instructor

pickup-lines-12

“PUA,” or “pick up artist” training is sometimes sought after by men who have difficulty meeting women. A “PUA bootcamp” can cost as much as $3,000, and are held in locations all over the world. The most prominent PUA instructor is James Matador, whose “Mystery Method” of attracting women was made famous by his reality television show on VH1. Wow.

5. Academy Awards Ballot Counter

tumblr_n3ks63wkBS1t4k5m7o1_500

For the past 72 years, PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Entertainment and Media practice has been counting the ballots cast for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual Academy Awards. The two partners who run the 10-day ballot-counting team get to sit backstage and pass out the envelopes with the winners’ names inside. Inside Public Accounting says the average compensation for an accounting partner was $452,744.. Since your odds of becoming one of the two partners handling the task are as remote as your odds of winning an Academy Award, consider an alternative: working as an accountant in the entertainment industry.

and lastly…

6. SELLING YOUR LIFE

0513WIFFIPOM001_crop

Mike Merrill used his business brain to invest in something most people wouldn’t ever risk: himself. He decided to split himself into $100,000 shares at a $1 a piece allowing shareholders to run his life as they please. In other words they choose his significant others, the food he eats, his hair style, you name it.

Happy Labor Day!
