Do You Agree?: Guy Explains Why Cross-Gender Friendships Don't Work

Why Cross-Gender Friendships Don't work - From a guy's point of view 
It is weird that a lot of people see this question and answer that it is selfishness (mostly on the part of the guys). People mostly believe that at some point in a male-female relationship, the man gets attracted to the woman and tries to take it somewhere he should not due to the fact that he cannot control himself and that puts the friendship in danger. The same thing also happens in a lot of relationships. 
Women have come to call men inconsiderate and perverted because a lot of men will not do anything for a woman without asking for some kind of sexual gratification and it

Meet the New Fattest Man in Britain, Carl Thompson (Photos)

He starts his day with a fry-up breakfast made up of four sausages, five fried eggs, a pan-full of mushrooms. Consumes vast quantities of ice cream, thinks nothing of devouring an entire loaf of bread smothered in a whole jar of jam at one sitting. He cannot walk, wash or dress himself.

Now 412kg, Carl Thompson has been awarded the dubious honour of Britain's fattest man. He took the title from postman Paul Mason, who dropped from around 444kg to 139kg after having a gastric band fitted.

According to UK media, the 32 year old man has not had a job since he was 17 when he worked in a food factory. At the time Mr Thompson said he ate everything the factory didn't sell. But after the

Hello son, your mother sent me a picture of a broken mug - my broken mug. Apparently, you have broken yet another mug. I'm thinking of disciplining you with the rod when I get home but no, I won't derive satisfaction from that, it won't be fun. Spare the rod and spoil the child is so old school.

Helen Paul: I’m Disappointed by Buhari’s Statement on Chibok Girls Rescue

Helen shared her thoughts last week on YNaija:
Hmmm… it’s one year and some days now since the Chibok girls have been missing. Yet, the days are still counting because we have no clue about their whereabouts. This is a very sad development indeed. No doubt, it was a disappointment that the outgoing government failed to locate and rescue the girls from the hands of their Boko Haram abductors. 
As a mother, who knows what the pains of child labour and child upbringing are all about, I heaved a sigh of relief when Muhammadu Buhari emerged winner of the presidential election. It was not because I like him more than Jonathan, but because I listened to one of his campaigns, where he promised to bring back the girls if elected into office. Perhaps, Nigerians elected him on that premise. 
I feel that, at least, it will be a great achievement for whoever locates and brings back the

Check Out the First-ever Copy of Playboy Magazine featuring Marilyn Monroe

In December 1953, Hugh Hefner decided to print just 54,000 copies of his new magazine, Playboy, not knowing whether it would ever be successful. That same month to his surprise, the magazine sold out immediately. Fast forward to 2015, almost 62 years later, one of those first 54,000 copies featuring Marilyn Monroe as centerfold is set to be auctioned and is expected to fetch over $2,700.

A world away from its modern, glossy successor, in its introduction, Hugh clearly stated that Playboy was not 'a family magazine'. That it was for men between 18 to 80 years old, adding that:
'If you're somebody's sister, wife or mother-in-law and picked us up by mistake, please pass us along to the man in your life and get back to your Ladies Home Companion.'
It is also the first appearance of the 'Playboy Bunny', decked out in a smoking jacket with a pipe in his mouth. Check it all out after the cut.
