See why women want to take the money and run and take a look at our list of must-reads that will have you chatting at the lunch counter, over IM or wherever it is that people actually talk these days. 

  • Women would rather take cash than have sex when given the choice, a new survey found. And we're not talking a lot of mullah either. The real shock of this unscientific survey conducted by AOL's Shortcuts.com and Allyou.com is that women would rather get a measly $50 extra a week (!) than have more sex. Sure, we're in a recession -- but really?  
     
  • Binge drinking has been spiking among older adults. About 22%of men and 9% of women ages 50 to 64 are considered binge drinkers -- which is defined as having five or more drinks at a time--- according to a recent survey. The high level of drinking is more damaging to the older set than their suds swilling frat boy counterparts because the older group faces higher health risks.
     
  • Not everyone interprets facial expressions -- and emoticons -- the same way, new research shows. Asians tend to focus mostly on the eyes when reading emotions and Westerners look at the face as a whole, causing confusion between the two groups when trying to define the seven main facial expressions. In the West, for example, the emotion for "sad" is :-( . In the East, it is (;_;) or (T_T) .
     
  • The previously top-secret file on one of Britain's most famous UFO sightings was released today along with thousands of pages of information about past encounters. More than 4,000 pages document more than 800 supposed encounters during the 1980s and 90s.
