1.) For the seventh year in a row, breast augmentation was the most popular form of plastic surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. More than 280,000 operations were performed in 2012. But one of the largest growing procedures may be thanks to Michelle Obama – the upper arm lift. Almost 16,000 people, 98 percent of them women, spent a total of $61 million dollars to have liposuction on their arms. The number of procedures performed is up over 4,000 percent since 2000, when only about 300 women opted for it.
2.) It’s the ultimate small talk subject – the weather. But how often do we talk about it? According to a new survey, the average person talks about the weather 4 times a day, for an average of 8 minutes and 21 seconds. That would mean we talk about the weather 127 hours a year, or a little more than 5 full days. The average person in the U.S. lives to age 78. So assuming you have 60 adult years, you spend more than 10 full months of your life talking about the weather.
3.) Which gender takes more vacations? According to Springhill Suites Hotels, its women. Women take a vacation every 10 months, while men take a break every 12 months. Even though it takes us that long to go on vacation, 20% of us feel we can’t go a month without feeling like we need a break, and 90% of us wish we had more vacation days. One thing about vacations that both sexes share - last minute packing. Fifty percent of Americans wait until the day before vacation to pack.
