(PCM) Australian actor 31-year old Chris Hemsworth has just been named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2014.

The actor who is best known for his role as “Thor” in the “Avengers” film franchise is featured on the magazines cover which will hit newsstands this Friday.

After learning about the honor, Hemsworth told People “I think you’ve bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house. I can just say to her [wife Elsa Pataky], ‘Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don’t need to do the dishes anymore, I don’t need to change nappies. I’m above that. I’ve made it now.”

In the feature story, Hemsworth shares details about this strict diet and exercise plan, but also reveals that he does allow himself to have cheat days during which he can consume everything he is not supposed to such as hamburgers, pizza, beer etc.

Hemsworth and his wife have been married since 2010 and reside in Australia with their three children.

Are We Really Running Out Of Chocolate? Say It Isn’t So!

Chocolate1

(PCM) It has recently been reported by some of the world’s leading chocolate manufacturers that we are actually eating more chocolate than they are able to produce. Several of the companies are even predicting that we may experience at worldwide shortage of chocolate in the near future.

The Washington Post has explained the shortage saying that we are already experiencing chocolate deficits, where farmers are producing less cocoa than the world eats and it is beginning to become the norm. The deficit continues to grow every year and by the year 2030 the predicted shortage of cocoa will be about 2 million tons.

Experts go on to explain that it is not just people’s appetite for sweets that has created the chocolate deficit as, disease, drought, and farmers replacing cocoa with more profitable plants such as corn or rubber have all played a role.

What is even scarier is the fact that it is being reported by Bloomberg that the demand for cocoa is on a path to be higher than the output by at least 1 million tons every decade for the foreseeable future. We are running out of chocolate at a very fast pace.

Makes us wonder if we should start stocking up now!

Will You Be Celebrating National Unfriend Day?

Unfriend-Day1

(PCM) Today happens to be World Peace Day and for those that are looking to get a little peace of mind via their social media accounts today also happens to be National Unfriend Day!

National Unfriend Day was created by late night television host Jimmy Kimmel a few year ago, but since then it has caught on and each year on November 17th social media users take a good hard look at their friends list and decided just who should stay and who receives the dreaded ‘unfriend’ button click.

You know that we all have that one “friend” who is guilty of oversharing or those that rise up on a soapbox given the correct opportunity via social media. How about that guy you used to date in high school or the girl that sat behind you in 3rd period economics class? All have probably sent friend requests over the years, but are certainly not someone we choose to interact with during our daily lives.

Did you ever consider how many Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, etc “friends” that you interact with outside of the world wide web? Guaranteed your answers could probably be counted on both hands (and maybe a few toes).

National Unfriend Day gives you the blessing of social media etiquette to unfriend away and not worry about any consequences, trust us, they will get over it eventually!

Have You Heard About The ‘Ramnut’?

Ramnut1

(PCM) Don’t worry neither had we until we discovered this odd ball culinary creation by UCLA college student Joshua Scherer. Scherer took Instant Ramen, the poor college student’s meal of choice and crafted it into the “Ramnut”.

Yes, the “Ramnut” is a doughnut created by mixing Instant Ramen noodles with various other ingredients. Scherer says creating the “Ramnut” took six packs of ramen and about twelve hours to complete.

The ‘Ramnut’s’ are boiled in horchata (cinnamon-spiced milk), molded and stuffed with custard or jam, then fried in oil, frosted and sprinkled. Scherer told ABC News, that they taste exceptional and have a flavor profile that is really similar to rice pudding and a texture like kugel. All in all the ‘Ramnut’ is just made with fried dough and sugar.

Scherer has also embarked on several other culinary adventures which can be found, along with recipes on his blog, Culinary Bro Down.
