Who says blondes have more fun?
Brunettes may turn heads and the fair-haired may be in demand, but it seems the racy redheads are the real deal when it comes to having an active … um … social life — at least according to this German guy.
A study done by Hamburg sex researcher Dr. Werner Habermehl says that of all the ladies out there, redheads have the most sex, The Daily Mail reports.
Habermehl looked at the sex lives of hundreds of German women and then compared them by hair color to come to his carnal carrot-topped conclusion.
"The sex lives of women with red hair were clearly more active than those with other hair color, with more partners and having sex more often than the average. The research shows that the fiery redhead certainly lives up to her reputation," Habermehl said.
But don't fret if you weren't blessed with crimson tresses by nature.
Habermehl says even women who dyed their hair red from another hue were signaling that they were in search of a partner.
"Even women in a fixed relationship are letting their partners know they are unhappy if they dye their hair red. They are saying that they are looking for something better," he said.
Moral of the Story: Drunk People in Capes Are Funny
Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Drunker than a skunk in a superhero suit.
It must be some kind of party when Superman's your drinking buddy.
Police in Scotland made a most unusual drunk driving arrest when they nabbed a boozy Batman behind the wheel with a Superman sidekick in the passenger seat, The Scotsman reports.
The pair, both men in their 20s, were on their way back from a costume party when they were pulled over as a part of a local crackdown against motorists who have had a few too many.
"This is a real fall from grace for two superheroes. I am sure drink driving is not allowed in Gotham City, and it is certainly not to allowed in Fife … They were the worse for wear having been at a fancy dress party. But there was nothing comical about driving home after having a drink," a source at the Fire Police told The Scotsman.
There's Something to Be Said for Criminal Persistence
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Kevin Holder's rap sheet is 43 pages long, dating back to 1980, and he just got another entry — his 226th arrest. Police say they caught him Sunday morning after a brief chase and found burglar tools in his possession.
"He's very well-known to Lincoln police officers," Police Chief Tom Casady said.
Holder's convictions include criminal mischief, marijuana possession, violation of protection order, assault, resisting arrest, assault on an officer, possession of cocaine. Many were misdemeanors, but he also has been sentenced to at least three prison terms for felonies, including a four-year stretch starting in 1996.
"Your average Nebraskan thinks after a prisoner has committed a certain number of crimes (he) will be put away for a long period of time. That doesn't happen," Casady said.
Lancaster County Attorney Gary Lacey said Holder was charged Tuesday with felony possession of burglar tools and prosecutors will urge a judge to treat Holder as a habitual criminal. With another felony conviction, that could result in a sentence of up to 60 years. Holder remained behind bars Tuesday afternoon.
Holder's list of arrests doesn't come close to setting a record for Lincoln-Lancaster County. He's No. 40, police spokeswoman Katherine Finnell said Tuesday. A number of people have more than 500 arrests in the city of 226,000 people.
The record was held by Edward Rooks, who died in 2004, with 652 arrests.
Taking Irreconcilable Differences to a Whole New Level
DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) — If the mudslinging in a city council race this fall seems right out of divorce court, it could be because two of the candidates are a former husband and wife.
Leah Berlanga, one of seven people running for three open seats, said Monday that her former husband, Frank Berlanga, entered the race to harass her.
"I'm not going to let somebody intimidate me," she said during a news conference in front of City Hall.
Frank Berlanga, 53, was arrested Friday, the day after he filed his papers to run, and placed in San Mateo County jail without bail for a probation violation, the sheriff's office said. Authorities refused to offer more information and Berlanga could not be reached for comment.
Leah Berlanga, a financial investigator for San Francisco's Department of Child Support Services and co-founder of a support group for abused women, said the arrest was related to an incident in June, but she would not elaborate.
A restraining order was issued against Frank Berlanga in 2004 and he was sentenced to 10 days in jail for violating it in 2005 by leaving her a threatening letter.
The former couple, who have a teenage son and 11-year-old daughter, were separated in 2004 and divorced in June. "This will be the rockiest race that we have ever witnessed," Leah Berlanga said.
After Ages of Exclusion, Kitchen Sink Gets Day in the Sun
GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) — Thieves went to a Greenwood church over the weekend and ended up leaving nearly everything except the kitchen sink.
You heard right.
A restaurant-style, stainless steel sink was stolen from behind the Calvary Grove Baptist Church.
Reverend Wilbert Simpson says the sink was left outside during renovations to give painters room to work.
Simpson says a cake warmer was also stolen.
The church is offering a reward for information on the stolen sink.
