10 Most Obvious Findings Ever

Rupaul's on my list.

Writing for Babble has been wonderful for a number of reasons. One of them is that I’m plugged in to way more parenting news than ever before. Which is kinda neat. In fact, earlier today, I ran across a parenting-related study conducted by the Washington University of Medicine that simply blew my mind. I’m not sure how much money was spent on the research, but if they spent only a penny, then they got ripped off.

According to Washington University‘s website:

High school students who smoke, drink, use drugs… or engage in other risky behaviors also are more likely to become pregnant or to impregnate a sexual partner, according to a new study from psychiatry researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Oh my gosh, y’all. Who in the world would have ever thought that teens who booze it up and get high are more likely to end up with pregnancies? Good thing for Washington University. Good thing I read the entire article, too. Because the title of the article was confusing to me: Pregnancies More Likely in Teens who Smoke, Drink and Use Drugs. Maybe I didn’t get the title because it seemed like such a stretch.

The brainiacs behind this study were also involved in ten other studies. I’ve listed the headlines pertaining to each study’s result for your convenience. You know. In case you weren’t aware of them.

  1. There’s Been Snow This Winter
  2. Amy Chua Has a New Book Out
  3. Michael Jackson’s Relationship With Bubbles, The Chimp, Deemed Disturbing by Some
  4. Hitler Had Anti-Semetic Tendencies

About john cave osborne

John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as DisneyBaby, Babble, YahooShine, TLC and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.

    What the hell? This seriously can happen when you’re drunk and do drugs? And here I thought it only happened because a few storks in AA saw what was going on and then fell off the wagon. Learn something new everyday.

    I’m currently trying to get funding on a study I’d like to conduct. “Money does buy happiness”. I figure if people are willing to throw money into the study you wrote about, I should be able to get plenty of donations for my study.

    I have actually heard that if most people won the lottery, they would NOT go back to thier job. I think we need a study to confirm it though

    These studies are one of the things that really gets my blood boiling. Us taxpayers are funding all these academics to sit around in cuordoroy jackets, smoke dope, and do useless studies. It makes me furious. Why not give money to people who actually build stuff or contribute to society in some other way.

    Great list too. I particularly like the Charlie Shen one. That guy is a mess.
