All you thirty-something year olds out there no longer have a good excuse to mooch off mom and dad. According to a new study released this week, there are jobs in San Francisco -- and plenty of them.
Wallethub.com, a website aimed to help you make better financial decisions, released this timely study which concluded San Francisco was ranked the 16th best place to land a job among the 60 largest cities. We fell behind Austin, San Jose, Washington, D.C., and Seattle, the study says.
The study's authors considered a slew of factors, including commute times, job openings, median salaries, and unemployment rate among the 60 largest cities to determine where the strongest marketplaces are present day.More »
Sure, California has a ton of sex appeal (beaches, mountains, stunning views, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Hollywood). But nobody cares how long and attractive your bridge is if the ride across it isn't up to par.
A new app, dubbed Spreadsheets, will help you track your sexcapades, logging tremendously important information, including duration, thrusts, etc. Nerve.com reported that the app creators were able to crunch a few numbers to determine which states are having sex the longest -- and which states are coming (!) in last.

Guess what, everyone: those nasty carrot and kale shakes are working!

A new study released this week confirms what other studies have already said about us: San Franciscans are some of the trimmest and slimmest people in the nation. NerdWallet released its findings, ranking our rolling city second healthiest community in the nation. Even better, we beat out Seattle and Portland. And because you are wondering, Boston is the only city that's fitter than us.
It stands to reason: San Francisco's steep landscape provide residents with a built-in interval exercise program that no treadmill could offer (at least when it comes to a scenic workout). And of course, knowing there's a taco stand or a bar in the far off distance will motivate the laziest among us to march those hills.More »

Perhaps it's because we're considered the nation's most batshit crazy and sexy not to mention we have the best damn tacos in America. And we haven't even gotten around to mentioning the oceanside scenery, the organic pot, and the wine yet.
A new survey released by Survata showed that among 7,340 people in the nation, 34 percent said they were "extremely proud" to be from the state in which they currently live, while 9 percent were "not at all proud."
Oregon, California, and Washington were among the proudest states, each with over 42 percent of respondents saying they were "extremely proud" to live there. It's no coincidence that all three of the most satisfied states are on the West Coast where the beauty is bigger than any teased hair you'll find in Texas.More »

Take the newly released Public Policy Institute of California Poll. The poll takes the state's temperature on a host of issues, including fracking (we want it regulated), Gov. Jerry Brown (Democrats like him, Republicans not so much), and, of course, marijuana.
National polls reveal a majority support for legalizing marijuana, and the state results are no different. On the cannabis question, a solid 52 percent of the 1,703 Californians polled want marijuana legal -- and among likely voters (the same people who will likely be called on to make it legal in 2016) support is even higher at 60 percent.More »
If you recently turned 38 and are about to graduate with your fifth degree, you're probably totally freaking out about what your future holds. I mean what are you really going to do with multiple advanced degrees in English when the only thing you've written in the last week is LMFAO?
Five college degrees later and still failing at life
Your next step in life seems pretty obvious to us: Move in with your parents.
All the more reason to if you are in San Francisco. A new study by Estately.com says that San Francisco was ranked among the top 13 best places to bunk up with mom and dad, which is pretty damn convenient considering the median rental price here is $3,396 and the median home price is $767,300, according to the study.More »
By the time Facebook came along in 2004, many of us were already using other Internet vessels to gather intelligence about our romantic partners. It was already customary to check a person's relationship status on various social networks rather than asking him IRL, and astute daters knew how to "deep-Google" each other.
But Facebook, which now mediates a frightening portion of our normal social exchanges, made the practice of cyber-stalking even more commonplace. Not only that -- it became the medium in which people consecrate relationships. A romance is but a flame until both parties make it "Facebook official"; some might say an engagement means very little until the bride-to-be posts wall photographs of her ring.
But some people take the network far more seriously than others, according to a new study by researchers at Ohio State University. In fact, our way of dealing with romantic partners on Facebook often speaks volumes about our personalities. It can even reveal ghosts of relationships past.More »
