Ladies, how well do you know your own body? Specifically, how much do you know about your reproductive abilities? A new study shows that a significant number of women either don't know important details, or they believe myths. Wanna test your knowledge? It's in the link below.
Also, as soon as you fall in love your food - and your water - will taste sweeter. Turns out that our emotions really do affect our senses. (I think we always suspected it, but now science backs us up.)
And wait until you see The Beastie Bike. Have you got the guts to ride 60 miles per hour on a bike on your stomach, face down? Check out the story and picture. Plus, if you text while you walk you could fall over. Really. Or fall into the path of a car or train. Really.
These stories, and more (including a picture of the world's largest vinyl album) are waiting for you right here. You should promptly click on the link so you can get your nerd on.

We're always on the hunt for things (or people) to make us happy, but there are certain interesting facts about happiness that might surprise you. And I just happen to have the list (if you follow the link below).
And have you ever wondered about being in an emergency where all you could drink was your pee? (If you haven't wondered about this, that's okay.) Well, a Mix 100 listener asked, and I've got the answer.
Plus, a story about how your long commute could cause a divorce, brilliant new pictures from Saturn and its moons, and your cool video of the week: Why birds fly in a V formation. You gotta see this.
Ever wonder if your music playlist at the gym is helping you? Well, it depends on the phat beatz, my friend. And yes, I am fly. Turns out that there is a "perfect playlist." Wanna see it? I can show you.
Also, when - please, when?! - will they ever listen and start school later in the morning? I'm telling you, our kids would perform better and learn more. Now there's yet another study backing me up. I've got details for you.
And there are some other pretty cool quickies in this week's NFN: A new type of glue that could save your life; the movie psychopaths who are the most realistic; and how sexual activity is really good for your brain. It's true.
“Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead”
by Dr. Brene Brown
Reviewed by Jane
Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past twelve years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.
That sounds kinda dry, right? But, really, how many of us feel as if we’re not living our authentic life? That we’re really not being who we want to be? Judging by the humongous number of self-help books that are published every year, it’s a lot of us.
The premise of this book is that we are not ourselves because we are afraid to be vulnerable. We walk around with our guard up, afraid to show who we really are. Why? Fear of being judged, fear of being shamed and/or humiliated if we reveal who we are under our suit of armour.
Sound familiar? Probably. That’s why Dr. Brown’s 2010 TEDxHouston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top ten most viewed TED talks on TED.com, with approximately 6 million viewers. Additionally, she gave the closing talk at the 2012 TED conference where she talked about shame, courage, and innovation.
The book is extensively researched, but tells real people’s stories to make her point that we have an epidemic of women feeling like imposters; that we can’t be successful or brave or happy because of our inner struggles with these themes. Dr. Brown is also not afraid to use herself and her experiences as a way to ‘walk the walk’.
The word ‘empowerment’ is grossly over-used. We seem to think we can make up for it by being aggressive and ballsy and more masculine. Brene Brown brings a new outlook of strength through introspection and exploration of what makes us, us.
