Well, you'll be able to order the new Apple Watch next month.
Learn why you couldn't care less with my "Top Reasons You Won't Buy the Apple Watch."
~First they made it so we don't need watches, now they're trying to make everybody wear watches again. At this point, they're just toying with us.
~You like your wrist like you like your women: hairy and naked.
~You already own a Swatch. And Swatches are SASSY!
~Because you're the only one smart enough to just duct tape your iPhone to your wrist.
~You already wear a trilby hat and smoke an e-cigarette and somehow haven't been murdered yet. Why tempt fate?
~You've seen enough movies where people who talk into their watches get pegged by snipers.
~You're waiting for a model with flashing lights and alarms that go off when you get a text, so everyone around can tell how awesome you are.
~The only thing you want around your wrist is a pair of fuzzy handcuffs.
~You have a hard time believing anything could possibly be more technologically advanced than your "Knight Rider" calculator watch.
~You prefer to wait a week, for the inevitable release of the Apple Watch 2.
~You're still smarting from being the one person on earth who bought a Newton. (remember those? I do)
~You're a hipster and it isn't shaped like a Victorian pocket watch.
~You're under 30 and therefore are unsure what a watch is.
~You prefer to wait six months for a lighter version with a better camera.
~You don't want your watch to be smarter than you are.
~You gave up looking like a pretentious narcissist for Lent.
~Apple Watch? What's that? Haven't heard a thing about it.

Here are our Top 13 Things That Also Annoy Kanye West.
2) Taylor Swift, Beck, and other thugs that only HE is brave enough to confront.

5) Knowing that no matter what he accomplishes, Ray-J tapped it first.
6) When he plays board games with his friends and Beyoncé doesn't win.
7) When other people don't think the sneaker he just designed has somehow changed the universe for the better.
8) The fact his daughter will soon be old enough to Google exactly how her mommy became famous.
9) The unfair assumption that only white people can be obnoxious hipster tools.
10) Being falsely labeled a "shockingly narcissistic blowhard," when he really strives to be more of an "incredibly vain windbag."

I'm the worst at this one. You know how you forget someone's name IMMEDIATELY after you're introduced? Don't worry, we all do it. But there are ten ways to remind yourself without looking like a jerk . . . if you're slick about it.
#1. Ask them to put their number in your phone. Usually they'll enter their first and last name. And they'll probably be flattered, because it makes them think you want to keep in touch.
#2. Ask for their email address. Most people have their name in it somewhere, or at least a first initial. Hopefully enough to jog your memory.
#3. Introduce them to a friend. If they're polite, they'll introduce THEMSELVES to your friend, and you'll get the name a second time for free.
#4. Ask them how to spell their name. If you try it with a Tom or a Mary, they'll see right through it. But most names have at least a few alternate spellings, so it won't seem weird if you ask.
#5. Get their business card. People love to give them out, and they'll be thrilled if you ask for it. Plus, if you forget the name again, you'll always have the card to remind you.
#6. Ask about the meaning behind their name. Again, only try this one if you're pretty sure the name isn't something really common.
#7. Get creative. Compare driver's license photos, or get people talking about the different ways kids used to make fun of their names back in school.
#8. End a conversation by reminding them of YOUR name. Usually they'll give theirs right back . . . unless they don't care enough about YOU, in which case you shouldn't feel bad that you forgot.
#9. Wait until they leave and ask a friend. A little risky sometimes, because the longer you talk to someone, the bigger the chance that a situation will come up where you're supposed to use their name.
#10. Just be honest and apologize. If nothing else works, you can ask someone a second time. If you're nice about it, it's not a big deal, because it happens to everyone sooner or later.

If you had to name the greatest food in
the HISTORY OF MANKIND . . . and I gave you 50,000 guesses . . . you
STILL wouldn't come up with this.
According to the economists behind the book and the website "Freakonomics", the greatest food in human history just might be . . . the McDonald's McDouble.
If you're somehow not familiar, the McDouble is two hamburger patties and a piece of cheese on a bun. It costs $1 at pretty much every McDonald's in the country. And that's part of why it's so great.
Putting aside your feelings on fast food, it's never been possible to get so many calories, so much protein, calcium, fiber, and a few vegetables for so cheap. Supposedly the entire world could survive forever just eating McDoubles.
Each one has 390 calories, 50% of your daily protein, 20% of your daily calcium, and 7% of your daily fiber.
The runner-up pick for the best food in human history was . . . boiled lentils? Because nothing says "pull up a chair for din din's" like a bowl of boiled lentils.
