survey: January 2008 Archives

Over half of singles say they will 'research' a potential date on social network sites such as Facebook before saying yes.

53 percent of men and 54 percent of women claim they use websites like Facebook, MySpace and Google to check up on would-be love interests before agreeing to go out on a date with them.

This means they can see who the person is friends with, look at pictures of what they get up to and some even claim to contact the persons previous partners to ask them what they are like.

Mac users have 'different' brains

Psychologists claim users of Apple Mac computers have a distinct mindset that predetermines their responses to and interpretations of situations.

A study of 7,500 people found that Mac users are more liberal, less modest, and more assured of their own superiority than the population at large.

The boffins from Mindset Media say that as such, Mac users are also more likely to seek varied and novel experiences, believing that imagination and intellectual curiosity contribute to a life well lived.

How do you boil an egg?


Only half of young adults in Britain know how to boil an egg, a survey has revealed.

Just 51% of 18-24-year-olds knew it took three minutes to soft boil an egg, one in 20 though it would take 10 minutes and 15 % had no idea at all.

The poll for Farmhouse Breakfast Week surveyed 1,950 people with 65% getting the time right.

The British Egg Information Service says eggs should be put in cold water which is then brought to boil and left for three minutes to get a really soft boiled yolk and set egg white.
