A new list ranked 366 U.S. cities from most American to least American . . . based on how their demographics, income, and housing compare to the entire country. Unfortunately it’s not based on stuff like the number of fireworks stores or people with bald eagle tattoos . They based it on how a city’s demographics, income, housing, and education compare to the entire U.S.
OUTKAST finally reunited earlier this year after an eight-year hiatus . . . but now, ANDRE 3000 is thinking about hanging it up FOR GOOD within the next year. Say it aint so! He tells the “New York Times”, quote, “I remember, at like 25, saying, ‘I don’t want to be a 40-year-old rapper.’ I’m 39 now, and I’m still standing by that. I’m such a fan that I don’t want to infiltrate it with old blood.” It remains to be seen if he’ll actually follow through. A lot of rappers say stuff like this . . . only to keep on going, or go in and out of retirement. In fact, elsewhere in the interview, Andre talks like he has all the time in the world . . . saying he plans on releasing new music, but doesn’t want to rush anything. Keep you posted!

Here are a few benefits of staying single: You spend four-to-five hours less doing CHORES every week . . . you get 30 more minutes of sleep a night . . . and you don’t have to lie about your finances, which 35% of couples who combine finances admit they’ve done. If you had a bad date over the weekend, this might make you feel better. Here are four benefits of still being single.
1. You spend four-to-five hours less on chores every week. According to a study at the University of Michigan, single women do 13 hours of chores a week, compared to 17 for married women. For single guys it’s 9 hours, and 14 hours for married men.
2. You’re more rested. Single people get almost 30 minutes of extra sleep a night, on average, partly because they don’t have to share a bed with another person.
3. You’re more likely to do well at work. One study looked at the careers of scientists, and found that the ones who stayed single longer ended up peaking later in life. And female scientists who have their doctorate are twice as likely to be single.
Although, those could probably both be seen as negatives too.
4. You can spend your money however you want to. A recent study found that 35% of couples who combine finances admit they’ve LIED about something they bought, or hidden something about their finances.

Have you ever stolen anything? If your answer to that is no . . . chances are you’re a thief AND a liar. Because just about everyone has stolen SOMETHING in their life, even if it was by mistake. Here are five things almost EVERYONE steals.
1. Pens. In one survey, 70% of people who work in an office said that a co-worker has stolen a pen before. And we do it by mistake so often that doctor’s offices actually tie them to clipboards.
2. A spot in line. Which is like stealing other people’s TIME. One study found that when someone cuts, people object to it 54% of the time. But if two people try to cut TOGETHER, it jumps to 91%.
3. Something from a hotel room. With stuff like shampoo, it’s not actually stealing, because they WANT you to take that stuff. If you don’t, they’ll just toss it. But 35%of people admit they’ve also stolen things like towels and sheets.
4. Lighters. Which people steal by MISTAKE all the time. Especially smokers, because they’re in the habit of using a lighter and immediately putting it in their pocket.
5. Condiments, straws, and napkins. The best example is ketchup packets. You probably have 50 of them sitting in a drawer, just in case you ever run out of ketchup you actually PAID FOR.
