  17. Email Fail: Couple Shares Steamy Sexual Conversation With Entire Office

    A wise man once said that love knows no bounds, but that declaration was obviously made at a time prior to the advent of email. Melanie Anderson and Eric Knisz, an engaged couple working for the Scottish oil company Integrated Subsea Services, learned in the worst way imaginable what happens when one is a bit too quick sending out messages. The two had spent the afternoon exchanging steamy emails back and forth when Anderson wanted to notify her fellow coworkers that the sandwich truck had arrived outside the premises. She accidentally included the emails in her forward, so the entire office learned that lunch was right outside the door and the humiliated couple's bedroom adventure the previous night was pretty "ace."

  18. Former Police Spy Sues Department for Failing to Stop Him From Falling in Love

He's suing the Metropolitan Police for damages between £50,000 and £100,000 -- or $80,070 and $160,140 -- for failing to prevent him from falling in love. Seriously.

  19. Study Shows That When Women Say “It’s Not You, It’s Me,” It Is Totally You

    Women who have settled down with a long-term partner who is stable, dependable, and less than entirely sexy are legion, a fact for which less than entirely sexy men are thankful every day. Trust us, we know. New research from a team at UCLA shows that the operative word in that sentence might be "settled," suggesting that women still hold their partner's lack of a full head of hair and a six pack -- PBR doesn't count, dudes -- against them. When they're at their most fertile, women in relationships with average looking fellas demonstrated signs of being less happy with their partners, and more prone to find faults or criticize them, than women whose partners have it going on in the looks department.

  20. Cities Make Coyotes the Best Lovers

    Contrary to how celebrity gossip and popular television period pieces tell us humans react, a new study has found that living near a city in an urban area is actually beneficial for the coyote. Instead of having an affair in a swanky ad office with a coworker who is also having an affair, coyotes that live in an urban area end up being monogamous, sticking with the same mate -- without straying -- for as long as the study examined them.
