survey: April 2011 Archives

275x250.jpgResearch has found that people who go on cruise holidays drink more alcohol than those who opt to holiday on dry land.

A study of 1,198 people who had been on cruise holidays discovered that 76 percent of them claimed to drink more when at sea.

In fact the majority of people on a cruise were found to consume 5-8 alcoholic beverages per day - considerably more than land loving holiday makers.

Asked why they drank more at sea, people said it was both because they felt safer in the contained environment -- and because it was "all inclusive".

So the general conclusion of the study is that people will drink more if the booze if free. We're just as surprised as you.

275x250.jpg Researchers have predicted that Brits will shell out a collective £163 MILLION on Wills and Kate royal wedding souvenirs.

One in five patriotic adults are expected to purchase a Royal collectable - with the average spend coming in at £17.

In total that comes to £163… which is a awful lot of mugs, tea-towels and plates featuring Prince William and Kate Middleton staring back at us.

However, the poll of 2,000 people revealed seven in ten won’t admit the souvenirs purchases to friends or family for fear of been mocked. That probably include those with royal wedding condoms.

Researchers found the typical adult has the hump for an hour and 19 minutes a day, with bad customer service, automated phone systems and commuting the most common triggers.

Work problems, money worries and having to deal with family issues also leave  a dark cloud hanging over millions of Brits.

The study of 2,000 people also found daily irritations include time spent queuing, dog mess in the street and learner drivers.

Eight percent of people even said they start to feel aggrieved at the mere sight of a traffic warden on patrol… while just typing the words get us annoyed.
