    Selfish people have fewer children and earn less money, new study finds

    People who are selfish tend to have fewer children and lower salaries than those who are not, a new study reveals. Researchers from the University of Stockholm are suggesting the concept that selfish people accrue more money thanks to their thrifty ways is nonsense after it found that people who engage in selfless behaviour are in fact more likely to receive a higher income and have larger families. Published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the study “Generosity pays: Selfish people have fewer children and earn less money“ focuses on selfishness from an economical and evolutionary perspective.

    Cheese-filled advent calendars are coming to Sainsbury's and Asda

    The tradition of the Advent calendar dates back to the mid-nineteenth century, when German Protestants would make chalk marks on doors to mark the days leading up to Christmas. German-born Gerhard Lang is widely regarded as having made the first Advent calendar in the early 1900s, and ever since then they have become a popular pre-Christmas gift, eventually adding little pieces of chocolate behind the doors in the latter half of the twentieth century. Now, Advent calendars are a booming business, and you can buy Advent calendars filled with little bottles of gin , pork scratchings or even a £250 sex toy Advent calendar ...
