Science says that taking a hot bath burns the same amount of calories as going for a run. Also I love science
Rub a dub dub
There are some people out there, fools by any other name, who believe that baths are shit. They think taking showers are better because blah blah blah, you’re lying in your own filth, blah blah blah it’s boring, blah blah blah you get hot and flustered. Well these people are wrong and should shut up forever because now actual science says that baths are so good for you, they’re practically the equivalent of jogging.
A study from Loughborough University says bathing has similar effects to exercise, including helping to prevent type 2 diabetes. Dr Steve Faulkner, the head researcher on the study, explained that “passive heating” is great for your health.
His team tested 14 people each enjoying an hour-long hot bath and an hour-long bike ride. Although biking burned more calories overall, the researchers found that a hot bath used up to as many calories as a brisk half hour walk or jog.
Speaking to The Conversation Dr Faulkner said: “The overall blood sugar response to both conditions was similar, but peak blood sugar after eating was about 10 per cent lower when participants took a hot bath compared with when they exercised.
“This suggests that repeated passive heating may contribute to reducing chronic inflammation, which is often present with long-term diseases, such as type 2 diabetes.”
It’s like exercising, right, but you can be naked, and also you don’t have to do anything. Perfect.

Surprise! You’re Asian!

Pretty much everyone I know has taken one of those ancestry DNA tests. And yeah, they're expensive but I can definitely see the appeal. The level of detail in the breakdowns — 56 percent Irish, 20 percent Balkan, 12 percent Iberian — isn't something you could get from a conversation with your grandma. And it's…
