15 Dance Facts You Should Know

Ovulating strippers make more money!

An evolutionary psychologist at the University of New Mexico and his research conducted a study that showed an interesting, but very obscure fact. Strippers earned more tips by lap dancing when they were ovulating than when they were not, and also more than women on the pill, who don't ovulate.

The research assistant first noticed this because he worked at a strip club assisting the performers. One of his duties was handing out tampons. He noticed women who requested them earned less than the others. This was the basis for their study.

They set up an anonymous website where they gathered data for 296 work shifts, or about 5,300 lap dances. The women would include info about their earnings, productivity and menstrual cycles.

The results? Women ovulating would earn in average $30/ hour than women in their periods and $15/hour more than women at other stage in their cycle. Women on the pill, who don't ovulate, made significantly less than women in their natural cycle.

The theory is that women ovulating are at their peak of fertility and that makes them more attractive to males. What they haven't found yet is how men can subconsciously recognize that a women is in estrus (their fertility peak).



A company called Holy Smokes will take your cremated ashes and place them in bullets!

Some people want to be buried in a cemetery, others want to have their ashes spread across an ocean, but some people, such as the founder of Holy Smokes, Thad Holmes, want to have their ashes loaded into 250 shotgun shells and used by their loved ones to hunt animals.

Thad is an avid outdoors man, and so is his son, and they both believe that the best way for his son to remember Thad is to use him once every year to hunt an animal. This simply bizarre idea evolved into a business ran by Thad called Holy Smokes.

Basically, people send the company their loved ones ashes, and in return, the company places the ashes in 250 shells (of the family's choosing) and then sends the shells back to the family to use. This one of a kind business charges $850 for their services.

After just a few months of the business being in operation, they already have a website and have had two different families use their services!


Gerald Ford became Vice President and President of the United States without ever being elected to either position!

The Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution deals with issues of succession to the Presidency and puts procedures in place for both filling a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, as well as responding to Presidential disabilities. The Twenty-fifth Amendment was adopted on the 23rd of February 1967. The Amendment has been invoked six times since its inception — twice with regards to Gerald Ford.

Spiro Agnew resigned on 10 October 1973, leaving the position of Vice President open. President Richard Nixon nominated Representative Gerald Ford of Michigan to succeed Agnew as Vice President, in accordance with the Twenty-fifth Amendment. The United States Senate voted 92 to 3 in favor of Ford and the House of Representatives voted 387 to 35 in favor. Ford was sworn in on 6 December 1973.

When President Richard Nixon resigned on 9 August 1974, after the Watergate scandal started unravelling, the Twenty-fifth Amendment had to be invoked again and Vice President Gerald Ford succeeded Nixon to the office of President. This resulted in Gerald Ford to be the only person ever in the history of the United States of America to be Vice President and President without being elected to either office by the citizens of that country.


Nokia has found a way to recharge your cell phone using radio waves. Learn more about their new technology here

Nokia is a Finnish communications and information technology corporation. They do business worldwide and are known for their internet services and cell phones. More recently, they have been working on a more environmentally friendly way to charge cellphones without wasting unnecessary electricity.

Nokia claims that it has created the technology to charge a cell phone using radio waves while that same cell phone is on standby mode. Standby mode is when electronics devices are not in use, but are still on. Similar to when computers hibernate. Even though the phone is not in use, it is still giving off radio waves. The same goes for televisions and computers.

The radio waves that a device gives off are very weak and small and do not hold much power. Nokia has developed the technology to gather all radio waves from miles away and from several devices. The more devices in a larger area means more power. The more power it has, the easier it would be able to charge a phone. This new technology suggests that when their phone is on standby mode, the phone will automatically charge without even being plugged in!


The Top 10 TV Facts

The producer of I Love Lucy helped to create the multiple-camera setup still used in most sitcoms today.

Countless sitcoms today use the multiple camera, adjoining set setup that was first made by Desi Arnaz, producer of I Love Lucy. While popular comedies like The Office, Modern Family, and Community don't use this setup, others like How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, and The Big Bang Theory still do. Arnaz and his cameraman Karl Freund are credited with the development of that setup still used today, as well as the production style associated with it in which all the sets are adjacent to one another. This helped to enable every station around the country to broadcast high quality images of I Love Lucy. Arnaz is also credited with inventing the live studio audience setup. Though he was told it would be impossible to allow an audience onto a sound stage, he worked with Freund to design a set that could allow for an audience and filming, while adhering to fire and safety codes. Arnaz also pushed the envelope for making the network let him show Lucille Ball while she was pregnant. Back then the CBS network felt pregnant women should not be on television, but the priest, rabbi, and minister Arnaz consulted all said it was fine. (Source)
