“Time” magazine has a new feature that’s pretty cool. It figures out what you’d be named if you were born TODAY. And no, it doesn’t just spit out “Emma” for women and “Aiden, Brayden, or Jaden” for men.Here’s how it works. It looks up the popularity of your name from the year you were born, then shows you what name is currently ranked in that spot today.
So if you were born in 1977 and your name is Benjamin, that was the 29th most popular name that year. If your parents gave you the 29th most popular name TODAY, it would be Christopher.
Scarlett Johansson is as ‘close to physical perfection’ as any celebrity currently alive.

The ancient Greeks claimed there was a Golden Ratio for all things when they approached perfection, and Scarlett’s vital statistics of bust, waist and hip measurements give her a 96.4 per cent score against the Golden Ratio of beauty.
Her hour-glass curves came up with a figure of 1.560 which is close to the Golden Ratio of beauty of 1.618.
The ratio has been held for thousands of years to represent the epitome of beauty. Kim Kardashian was second with a 96.3 percent Golden Ratio, and 69-year-old Helen Mirren was third with a score of 95.6 percent.

Michael Hammons of Athens, Georgia is an Army veteran who served in Desert Storm. And he was in the parking lot of a shopping center on Saturday when he saw a small dog locked inside a car. It was REALLY hot out and the dog was struggling.
So Michael used his wife’s wheelchair to smash one of the windows and got the dog out. Then he took it into the shade and gave it some water.
As he was tending to it, the dog’s owner came out . . . 22-year-old Elantra Cunningham. And when she found her car window smashed, she freaked out.
The cops came to the scene and Elantra was cited for leaving her dog in the car . . . but she decided to PRESS CHARGES against Michael.
So . . . he was arrested for trespassing. Apparently under Georgia state law, it’s illegal to break a window to rescue an animal . . . but the police say they wouldn’t have made the charges on their own.
He’s facing up to a YEAR in prison . . . meanwhile Elantra is facing up to a $250 fine and some community service.
