Whether it is women having entirely too much fun while eating salad or an executive looking serious “doing business” in the boardroom, stock photos are notorious for being cheesy and taking the brunt of plenty of jokes — for good reason.
That’s what makes the new promotion that Vince Vaughn and his co-stars in the movie Unfinished Business so funny…
Most people make an effort to avoid things that are obviously dirty and most likely harboring millions of germs — garbage cans, public restrooms, the handholds on the bus. That makes sense, but have you considered the threats that linger on things in your home?
The germs are coming from inside your house!
Here are the 10 places at home that can make you sick and how to avoid that scenario…
1. Kitchen Sink
Apparently “Everything but the kitchen sink” applies to “What is relatively clean in your house?”
According to research published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology, the average kitchen sink harbors about 100,000 bacteria per square centimeter, compared to the average toilet’s 100 bacteria per square centimeter.

But they’re over it. At least 11-year-old Jordyn is. She’s had enough and so she decided to do something about it.
We all want to save money where we can, right? The savvy shoppers among us clip coupons, check the weekly ads and go in with a list and a plan. But grocery stores have their own plans too, and it usually involves a few tricks.

Shelf Space Is Prime Real Estate
You might think that items are stocked according to size or popularity, but in reality, distributors pay big money to have their most high-profit items stocked where they know you’re sure to see them — in the middle at direct eye level.
And those items aimed at kids? They’re cleverly stocked on the lower shelves so children will see them and ask for them, too.
At one point or another, we’ve all delved into that dark part of the internet. You know, the one with all the completely weird and totally insane fan theories about our favorite movies? Yeah, that one.
And usually there’s nothing to them. But this one about everyone’s favorite 90′s “epic romantic disaster” movie Titanic…well…it’s about to blow…your…mind.
According to the theory, Jack Dawson is actually a time traveler.
