Guys, it’s Friday. And depending on where you live, you’ll be seeing this at either lunch time or right before you’re about to leave. Regardless, it’s late. And I blame that on Friday. This week’s Friday Fun Blog is brought to you by Procrastination: Because you don’t need to do that today. Let’s keep it short and sweet, in and out, and get out of here, ok?

-There’s a TV show in England called Sex Box where—you guessed it—people have sex inside of a box on TV then relationship, sex, and love experts tell them how to have better sex, or something. Or maybe someone should tell them to not have sex in a box on live TV. That should be the third thing that happens on this show: couples have sex in the box, sex experts help them, then someone goes, “Are you glad you did that?” and then the show ends.
-Have you ever watched a TV show (like Sex Box!) and wanted to know the music they use on it? Well, there’s a huge database of the playlists for your favorite TV shows that you can search. The music from Sex Box is just Marvin Gaye on loop.
-Scientists are wrong nearly ALL the time, and that’s the beauty of science, because when you do get to the actual truth—that’s the truth, whether you like it or not. SCIENCE!
