Gamers, the day has come!
X-Box has made a swimming video game! FINALLY we can go swimming without the hassle of all that icy water!
Stoner Swimmer Michael Phelps, inspired the idea for the dry game. The goal of Push the Limit is for players to mimic the stoking style of the Olympic super star.
Unfortunately, this ad for Push the Limit only proves what we guessed - standing in your living room trying to swim makes you sweaty lame.

Forget about likes and dislikes. Listen to the way your partner talks, and if he/she has a similar speech pattern to yours then you’re probably made for each other.
A recent study revealed that couples who are well-matched mimic each others’ speech patterns.
“Because style matching is automatic, it serves as an unobtrusive window into people’s close relationships with others,” said a researcher who worked on the study.
The study even went so far to analyze the poetry of famous poet-couples such as Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes.
“Style words in the spouses’ poems were more similar during happier periods of their relationships, and less synchronised toward each relationship’s end,” added the researcher.
We think that dating websites need to have a new section where you can listen to a recording of a potential partner's voice — if they sound like you, it’s a match made in heaven!
