The top 10 images are those that were seen as “good” pictures, while the bottom 10 were the “bad” pictures.

Do you want a double-shot soy latte, a caramel macchiato or simply a tall house coffee for your morning pick-me-up” Having choices is typically thought of as a good thing. Maybe not, say researchers who found we are more fatigued and less productive when faced with a plethora of choices.

If you’re looking for cavity-free pearly whites, search anywhere but Lubbock, TX. A new study in next month’s Men’s Health magazine says this West Texas city has the worst teeth of the 100 large U.S. cities examined.
