New Dating Term Alert: "Sneating" Is Going on Dates Just to Get Free Meals

Here's the newest dating term for you: SNEATING. That's when a woman goes on dates with guys JUST to get free meals. Preferably at nice restaurants, because if you're going to do something unethical, might as well go all the way with it.

There is one little aspect that makes such sneaky eating ever so slightly better.

According to the woman who coined the term, she won't do it with guys, quote, "who I don't think can afford to pay."


40% of Us Think Our Pet Has Seen a Ghost, Plus Our Top 10 Fears

A new survey for Halloween found that more than 60% of us think we've seen a ghost before . . . and 40% of us believe our PET has seen one.

Women were 20% more likely to say they've seen a ghost. But men were twice as likely to say they SCREAMED and ran away when they saw one.

Ghosts did NOT make the list of our top fears though. According to the survey, here are the top ten things we're afraid of . . .

1. Snakes.

2. Spiders.

3. Sharks. So the top three are all animals.

4. Drowning.

5. Heights.

6. Public speaking.

7. Failure.

8. Bees.

9. Tight spaces.

10. Rejection.


“Emotional Support” Squirrel Gets Woman Removed From Flight

Cindy Torok was removed from a Frontier Airlines flight from Orlando to Cleveland recently after bringing an unlikely emotional support animal on board – a squirrel. She claims she had a letter from her doctor, along with a letter from the Americans with Disabilities Act, along with calling Frontier ahead of time, before bringing Daisy the squirrel on board the flight. “They said, ‘Either you walk off the plane or I’m going to arrest you for trespassing, and we will take that squirrel,’” she explains. “I said, ‘You’re not taking my squirrel. You will not take my baby from me.’”

A spokesperson for the airline said the reservation indicated the woman was bringing an emotional support animal, but did not say it was a squirrel. When she was asked to get off the plane, she refused and Orlando police were called. All the passengers had to deboard.

Cindy and her squirrel plan to contact an attorney about the incident.
