Unicorn Tears Gin Is The Most Magical Booze In All The Land

unicorn_tears_gin

Now you can imbibe yourself on the tears of a truly majestic mythical creature! That’s right, Firebox is selling this Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur for $62 a bottle. No word on whether or not the tears involved are happy or sad, but my guess is, you’ll find out after drinking half a bottle. Calling your friends at 4 AM to tell them that you love them? Those are happy tears. Regrettable, but happy. Calling your ex at 4 AM to ask him where everything went wrong? Those are sad tears. Regrettable and sad.

Real Kids Think McDonald’s New Mascot Is Cree-py [VIDEO]

We knew it.

From his bug eyes to his uncanny valley grin, McDonald’s new mascot “Happy” has been panned ever since his U.S. debut last week (for some reason we decided to steal him from France). But as much as we grown-ups can gripe, the real test is how kids react to him, whether they fall in love with his unbridled enthusiasm, or finally have a reason to eat at Burger King instead.

Grub Street invited a focus group of kids in to get some insight, and their darnedest reactions are pretty much what you’d expect. They cover their eyes, fear it’s going to eat them, and ask “what the heck is that?” Weirdly enough, some kids still give Happy their thumbs up by the end of the survey, but that might just be so he doesn’t kill them in their sleep.

Can the Mediterranean Diet Make You Less Depressed?

Mediterranean-Diet

Apparently, the science of “healthy fats” and something called BDNF, a protein that controls certain brain functions,  has been linked to mental disorders like schizophrenia and depression. Eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (like fish and nuts, staples of the Mediterranean diet, which also includes more fresh fruits and veggies than an American diet, and a surplus of beans, whole grains, and olive oil) can make all those BDNF proteins kinda chill out.

There’s also the idea/theory/fact that eating, say, an apple is better for the mind and body than a Big Mac. So, you know. There’s that.

The study itself, however, seems a little sketchy. 96,000 people monitored their diet over the course of a year. At the end of the year, 20,000 people were randomly selected to fill out a PANAS (Positive and Negative Affect Schedule) survey. Only 9, 255 survey results were included in the final study, and all surveys were self-reported, leaving plenty of room for iffi-ness. Also, and for whatever reason, surveys were given only to black or white non-smoking members of the Advent church living in America, over the age of 35.

The point is if you’re having a rough day, treat yourself to a little lemon pepper fish. You’ll perk right up. Unless you smoke, are non-black or non-white, under 35, and not Adventist. If that’s the case, you’re SOL.
