5:45 KARD BLOCK: New Site Plans to Block All Kardashian Content Can't wait to see this in action!!!! Believe it or not, there are actually people in the world who don't want to know about the Kardashian family's every move. If you're one of them, there may soon be hope!
Some Web developers with no patience for the Kardashian clan -- and a lot of free time on their hands -- are working on a new product that promises to change the way you view the Internet. Kard Block vows to sanitize the Web of any and all content related to reality TV's first family.
The developers, who claim they're trying to make the 'Net a better place, are also working on a way to filter out Justin Bieber mentions. They feel these "improvements" will allow people to focus on the issues that really matter.
Talk About It:
Imagine if this could work anytime the Kardashians were mentioned on TV or in conversation by your chatty co-workers.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder. You might find yourself needing your Kim K. fix.
If you know how to code and share their passion for hating the Kardashians, they're looking for help.
What celebrity or artist do you wish you could block from the Internet?

7:15 When you go to IKEA it's an all day affair. I like to people watch and the last time I was in IKEA I watched pregnant couples shopping. It was like they were nesting and they needed to buy furniture right then. Also, I watched couples argue over furniture choices.
Unrelated but related. One time I had this boyfriend and we went through the purchase, loading, and assembling an IKEA bookcase. It was quite the adventure because, the whole thing was too big to get in my car, he had the flu, we got exasperated trying to assemble it together etc. Now a Therapist in California has decided to use IKEA's furniture assembly as a couples therapy aid. Brilliant!

6:15 Mother's day is coming up...here are some MORE HEALTH MYTHS YOUR MOM TOLD YOU, FACT-CHECKED: • "It's unhealthy to eat standing up." – Mostly false. Some studies have shown it may cause you to eat more than when sitting, but it causes no greater risk for indigestion or other issues. • "Reading in dim light will ruin your eyes." – False. Your eyesight can worsen over time due to a wide variety of factors, but reading in low lighting isn't one of them. • "If you go outside without a coat, you'll catch a cold." – Mostly false. Colds and pneumonia come from viruses, not a strong breeze. However, some research has suggested that getting chilled may make us more vulnerable if we already have a virus in our system. • "You lose 75% of your body heat through your head!" – False. The reality is that we only lose 7-to-10% of body heat through our heads. Bare hands also feel cold … not to mention bare feet. • "Wait an hour after eating to swim, or you'll cramp up." – False. In fact, the exact opposite is true. In order to swim, you need energy. So how else are you going to get it? – Condensed from Bustle.comhttp://www.bustle.com/articles/71073-can-you-catch-a-cold-from-going-outside-without-a-jacket-11-old-wives-tales-your

7:15 My Grandma Evelyn loved this perfume called Youth Dew from Estee Lauder. Let me be frank with you...it stunk! But, if I smell it now, it reminds me of her. Did you love the way Aunt Tilly smelled? Well, now a french woman can help you...
SMELL LIKE YOUR GRANDMA...or Aunt Tilly
Yes, you can now smell like a deceased loved one. A woman in France has started a business that will, indeed, bottle up the scent of someone who is no longer with us. It's actually not as gross as it sounds.
What they do is take an article of the person's clothes, for example, extract the odor, and make a perfume. The whole process takes around four days and costs about $600.
Katia Apalategui said she got the idea after seeing her mother hold onto her late husband's pillowcase so she could still smell him.
She hopes to launch the business in September. (Read about it here on: Women's Health)
