Whoa. They were surely awsome. The most thing that we enjoy about awards is the celeb’s dress sense. While some of us really gave us a shock , some managed to come up really good. Kristen was surely a rock baby. The girl from the famous magical tale Harry Potter (sorry i forgot her name) Harmoine is guess looked perfect in white. The dress was awomse, so were the shoes and so were the style. The way she carried was realistically royal. Hope you enjoyed it. Now lets have a look at the celebs.

A guide to the bugs, hairs and secretions in your favorite treats

On the latest episode of Jaimie Oliver’s Food Revolution, the food activist chef came up with a brilliant way to break kids of their sweet tooth habit. He showed them what their desserts are really made of.  Each kid got to make his or her own sundae and after they gobbled it down, he broke down some of more revolting ingredients in their high-calorie grub. It’s a radical approach but it may just be the cure for those late night binges. With that in mind, we collected some disgusting byproducts found in our favorite foods, to brainwash us into eating less of it. Will it work? It’s worth a shot.

Food: Vanilla Ice cream

Secret Ingredient: A beaver’s behind

Many vanilla-flavored products like ice cream incorporate an ingredient called castoreum, which is a fancy word for the dried anal glands of a beaver.

Food: Bread, Rolls and Bagels 

Secret ingredient: Hair

L-Cyesteine is a dough conditioner used in mass-produced bread products like bagels, donuts, rolls and crackers. And guess what’s needed to make L-Cyesteine? Hair. A recent study by the Vegetarian Resource Group found that human hair and hog hair were still used industry-wide, giving new meaning to the term “all-natural”.

Food: Shredded cheese

Secret ingredient: Sawdust

The ingredient used to keep many packaged shredded cheeses from clumping is powdered cellulose, which is a fancy way of saying wood pulp that’s been chemically processed. Look out for the ingredient in your ice cream too.

Food: Chewing gum

Secret ingredient: Sheep secretions

The oils released from the fur of a sheep is the “gum base” used in many types of chewing gums for extra-moisture.

Food: Potato chips

Secret Ingredient: cleaning agent

Sodium bisulfite is a preservative used for bleaching out the discolorations and extending the lifespan of your average potato chip. It’s also an ingredient in most toilet bowl cleaners.

Food: Red-dyed candies and sweets

Secret Ingredient: crushed bugs

Cochineal extract is a kind of red food dye found in many red-colored candies, sprinkles, strawberry flavored yogurts, jello, popsicles and most other “fruit-flavored” goodies. Turns out it’s not fruit responsible for the redness. The extract is actually made from the crushed and dried bodies of a red-colored insect called Dactylopius coccus costa. Still want to order dessert?

Women offer other women an incredible amount of uninformed advice, misinformation and mythology about what motivates men whether they’re single, married, or in a long-term relationship. This was the impetus behind StraightMaleFriend.com. With all due respect, women simply don’t know as much about men as they think they do. And of course us poor guys know zilch about women.

Truth be told, I actually reached out to a handful of guys to guest write for SMF and the general response was, “What? Hell no! I’m not gonna be the one givin’ up the secrets!” So you see?  Your SMF’s are risking permanent expulsion from the “Man Club” by giving up the goods here. But we’ve got a job to do!

To that end, we decided to tackle some fairly persistent man-myths. Now certainly there are exceptions to every rule. And, of course, you’ll have either experienced or have heard anecdotal stories that run contrary to your SMF’s perspectives. That said, here are:

The Top 5 Myths Women STILL Believe About Men

1.He won’t respect you if you have sex on the first date. Truth is, it doesn’t matter if you do the bedroom boogie on date number one or one-hundred. Sex (or the act of withholding it) doesn’t equate to respect. Don’t fool yourself. Each situation is different and each person is different. If you’re making such a personal decision based on not what YOU want, but on what you believe the other person will think, you could be settingyourself up for a major disappointment.

2. Men love the chase. Guys just loooove working up the courage to approach a stranger and ask them out, risking rejection or humiliation. What’s not to enjoy about basically having to qualify for the opportunity to take someone out ? Doesn’t sound stressful at all.

Uhhhh…no.

WOMEN love the chase. And why not? To be in a position where you can basically field offers from potential suitors. On that particular point, guys would switch places any day. It’s not that we love the chase…it’s that we have to chase.

3. A man can’t be friends with a woman without wanting to have sex with her. This one is always hotly debated among the fellas. But the consensus here is that the idea that men and women can’t be friends without sexual tension is pure hogwash. We certainly won’t pretend as if people can’t or don’t possibly find each other attractive, but that’s a far cry from wanting to get all coital. And listen, I surely have friends who I definitely wouldn’t mind taking out for a sexual test drive. On the other hand, I’ve got very close female friends with whom I couldn’t imagine being intimate in that way. So to say what comedian-turned-relationship-guru Steve Harvey said– that, “The only reason men are just friends with women is because that’s all she’ll allow” is just ignorant and short-sighted.
4.  Guys Prefer Something Left to the imagination.Says who? Ok, do we love the way you look in that low cut top or those form fitting jeans? Yes. Do we love seeing you looking your sexy best as you step out of the shower wrapped in nothing but a towel? You know it. Do we get turned on seeing you get dolled up before a night on the town or maybe seeing you in your sexiest Vicki Secret? Hell yeah, you know we do. You know what we love MORE than that though?

Taking all of that stuff off of you.

Yeah, we like to IMAGINE you in your birthday suit, but we’d PREFER to SEE you in your birthday suit. I mean, come on….why has this ever even been in question?

5.  Guys are intimidated by independent women. Lots of guys are. But a lot of guys aren’t. This is another electric debate, but we say that this is generally not true; particularly for guys under the age of 40. Under 40 guys are more used to seeing, meeting, knowing, socializing with, and yes even dating powerful, independent women. Many guys wouldn’t have it any other way. Now listen, no worthwhile guy doesn’t care about carrying his own weight or being his own man. And men want to be seen as good “providers.” But that’s a societal “guy thing” and it has less to do with actually feeling intimidated and more to do with feeling the angst of having other people judge them. A self-confident guy feels empowered and proud of his strong, independent partner not emasculated. So for us to buy into the “guys are afraid of independent women”myth, we’d have to buy that most guys lack self-confidence…and we don’t at all agree with that.
