    Long and soft

    Best-Hairstyles-for-Women-Over-40
    The problem with long hair is that it’s not always easy to keep it out of your face—and long and flat isn’t usually flattering. “Debra Messing’s look works with the length because it keeps it off her face and has some wave to soften it,” says Nunzio Saviano, owner of Nunzio Saviano Salon. Here’s how to keep your hair healthy all year long.

    This-Will-Be-Meghan-Markle’s-Last-Name-After-She-Marries-Prince-Harry_9243878h_FACUNDO-ARRIZABALAGAEPA-EFEREX

    Have you joined the Meghan mania yet? Welcome to the club. Meghan Markle’s name has made headlines ever since she and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November. So, while plenty of things about her life will change after the royal wedding, perhaps the most significant will be the name she goes by.

    Here is the simplest way to look at this major change: According to Marie Claire UK, it is likely that Meghan will become Rachel Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor once she and Harry tie the knot. (Her full name is Rachel Meghan Markle.)

    However, the true story is a bit more complicated than that. The British royal family technically doesn’t have a last name—and here’s why. In 1917, King George V decided “Windsor” would be the royal family’s official surname, named after Windsor Castle. Then, when Queen Elizabeth married Prince Philip, the couple decided that their children would take their hyphenated last names, Mountbatten-Windsor.

    The younger members of the royal family are not required to use the Mountbatten-Windsor name, though. In fact, Princes William and Harry went by William Wales and Harry Wales while serving in the military, because their father is the Prince of Wales. To make matters even more confusing, Prince George is going by a different last name in school, too.

    Regardless, the official word on the matter is that Meghan will take the Mountbatten-Windsor surname—but here’s why she won’t technically be called a princess after she walks down the aisle.

    Before you even walk in, you can see that the McDonald’s in Orlando, Florida stands out from its fast-food fellows. The restaurant is a whopping 19,000 square feet, making it the largest McDonald’s in the United States. A 30-foot-tall Ronald McDonald waves at people that barely reach his ankle. The sign on the door welcomes you to “Epic McD,” letting you know that you’re in for a McXperience unlike any other.

    Once you’ve finished staring at the fancy, light-up burger and fries on the wall reading “McDonald’s,” the futuristic hanging lights, and the big fish tank, it’s time to order your food.

    And if you came to this “Epic McDonald’s” expecting to have to choose between a Quarter Pounder and a Big Mac, you couldn’t be more wrong. Yes, you can order all of the classic Mickey D’s fare (and yes, that includes some healthy options). But you can also order Belgian waffles, paninis, tortellini with pesto, or any of the 50-odd other items from Orlando’s unique “Gourmet Bistro” menu. You can even build your own personal pizza, selecting your sauce, cheese, and toppings of choice—everything from crumbled sausage to pineapple. The chefs then build your creation inside a big brick pizza oven, and they’ll deliver it right to your table. And you won’t break the bank either. (If you want to go to the world’s most expensive McDonald’s, that’s in Europe.)

    Once you’ve finished your meal, don’t head for the door yet—this McDonald’s has a lot more epic-ness to offer. If you’re small enough, you can work off your meal in the massive 22-foot-tall PlayPlace. If not, you can still get your play on in the huge arcade containing over a hundred games. One look and you can see why this place has received the title of “world’s largest entertainment McDonald’s.”

    If you love McDonald’s—or if you’re sick of it and want to put a new spin on your McDonald’s experience—you might have to head to Orlando. The “world’s largest entertainment McDonald’s” is an essential addition to any fast food lover’s bucket list. Here are some more cool restaurants to add to your bucket list while you’re at it.

    What do you think? Does “Epic McD” put all other McDonald’s to shame, or would you prefer your regular old Mickey D’s? After all, we’re not sure even a personalized pizza can compete with those fabulous fries. (Here’s the reason McDonald’s fries are so delicious!)

    Your diet is lacking in the right nutrients

    Oranges
    One of the easiest changes you can make to increase your chances of getting pregnant starts with the foods you’re putting on your plate. And this isn’t only true for women who will be carrying the baby—it’s also important for men. “Antioxidants are well known for fighting the free radicals in our bodies that cause cancer and other diseases, but they can also increase male fertility,” says Philip Werthman, MD, urologist and director of the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine and Vasectomy Reversal in Los Angeles, California. “There are many different sources of antioxidants, but among the best for sperm health are zinc, vitamin C, selenium, vitamin E, folic acid, and lycopene.” (Here are some antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies you can eat.) You can also take them in supplement form, which might even be better since it reduces the amount of sperm that become damaged. Dr. Werthman also suggests reducing soy intake, since men who eat high amounts of soy tend to have lower sperm counts than men who do not.

    No More Meat!

    Meat
    The teacher in our Bible class asked a woman to read from the Book of Numbers about the Israelites wandering in the desert. “The Lord heard you when you wailed, ‘If only we had meat to eat!’ ” she began. “Now the Lord will give you meat. You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, or ten or twenty days, but for a month—until you loathe it.” When the woman finished, she paused, looked up and said, “Hey, isn’t that the Atkins diet?”

    Nothing is worse than shrunken clothes and a broken washing machine.

    Dictionary page with word "study" in focus and other is defocused

    The dictionary is probably your go-to source for checking facts and spelling. But these little (or rather, big!) books have a surprising history of inaccuracy, just like this clever way that dictionary editors prank each other. Now, there’s one more thing that dictionary devotees need to watch out for: missing words.

    Take the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), for example. Assembling the OED was a chaotic and disorganized process, and the staff spent nearly 70 years cataloging and defining all 414,825 words. As a result, many terms were misplaced in the shuffle. It’s somewhat of a miracle, then, that only one word managed to slip through the cracks completely: bondmaid, which means “a slave girl.”

    If you’ve never heard of it, we don’t blame you; this word is not commonly used today. The term was most popular in the 16th century, dating all the way back to a 1526 translation of the Bible. But when the first volume of the Oxford English Dictionary was published in 1888, this ancient word was mistakenly omitted.

    Rumor has it that when OED editor James Murray found out about the mistake, he turned red with embarrassment. “The phenomenon is absolutely inexplicable, and with our minute organization one would have said absolutely impossible; I hope also absolutely unparalleled,” he wrote to an anonymous contributor.

    It took almost five decades to fix the error, Mental Floss reports. (Given how long it takes to read the entire dictionary, that’s not surprising.) Fortunately, the lost word made its dictionary debut in 1933, when the second edition was published.

    Although the Oxford English Dictionary has continued to expand since 1888, it thankfully hasn’t forgotten to include a word since this unfortunate mishap. Speaking of, check out the most surprising words added to the dictionary this year.
