Written by

Chocolate Bunny: You are stalwart and trustworthy. Everyone knows what they're getting with you. If someone bites your head off, you just roll with it.

Malted Robin's Eggs: You're creative and like surprising people, but you're also just a little bit nostalgic.

Peeps: You're loud and will not be ignored. You're also extremely flexible. You're super sweet inside and out, and soft in the middle. But you can be a bit clingy, too.

Cadbury Eggs: You are not what you appear to be. There's a kind of mystery to you. And yet you're in high demand.

Jelly Beans:  You're just here for a good time, always happy to be invited to the party.

Peanut Butter Eggs:You're a regular person. You prefer stability, for things to stay the same all the time.

Edible Easter Grass: You're half punk rock, half emo. You scare people. No one quite understands you.

Eat Your Veggies for a Longer Life!

Written by

You know the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Turns out eating one apple isn't enough. A new study suggests people who eat up to seven servings of fruit and

vegetables a day can cut their risk of death by 42% - and that vegetables may be more important than fruit to your overall health. During the study, researchers also found

that vegetables are king – and end up being more important than fruit to your overall health.

It seems diets rich in fruits and vegetables protect people against cancer, heart disease, and all other causes of death.

So, hit the farmer’s market – or plant a garden. Your life might depend on it. (CNN)

Stress Affects Men's IQs

Written by

Everyone gets stressed out, but new research suggests that men and women cope with these situations in different ways.

Men’s IQs drop when they’re under stress – and they become more selfish. Researchers found that intelligence drops when men are freaking out – and they are less able to distinguish their own emotions and intentions from those of other people. Women, as you can guess, are the exact opposite. When they’re stressed, their IQ increases and they become more empathetic.  According to the study, men become more egocentric and self-centered when stressed. They have trouble separating their own intentions and emotions from those of the people around them. On the other hand, women who are under a lot of stress may become “prosocial.”
