Dennis Slice, a professor of scientific computing at Florida State University, says many automobiles resemble human faces when viewed head-on. For example, a Volkswagen Beetle with its wide-eyed headlights and curved hood resembles a smiling child. "This is the classic cute car not dominant, not aggressive," Slice explains. "I don't think anyone could be mean to someone in a Volkswagen Beetle."
A sporty Ford Mustang with its long hood and narrow headlights projects adult male features exuding dominance and aggression. "This is a car that's ready to take care of business," Slice says. "You don't want to mess around with this car."
Seeing faces in inanimate objects traces back to prehistoric man's survival instinct. You had to "Know whether the guy that just stepped out of the bushes is going to take your head back ...

Who could blame you?!
Ask yourself this:
How much do you enjoy the weekend?
You may enjoy it so much that your personality changes! Nearly half of us find that we become more impulsive, imaginative, agreeable and creative on Saturdays and Sundays, according to a national poll conducted by Hampton Hotels. In addition, 33 percent say the transformation is so radical that they are a completely different person on the weekend than they are during the week.

This Mother's Day, why not treat your Mom or that special lady in your life to a breakfast in bed that she'll never forget! Seriously, this looks like it's fit for a Queen! Below are the recipes on how you can turn breakfast into a spectacular feast! And hey--even if you feel like you're no Jamie Oliver/Martha Stewart in the kitchen, no worries! You can totally simplify things...maybe some scrambled eggs on toast with a coffee would be just as lovely! Who doesn't love it when someone else cooks breakfast for you?! And as that added bonus, waking up to breakfast in bed could turn anyone into a morning person!
You can fancy things up by presenting on a tray...maybe line your tray with a leftover piece of wallpaper or wrapping paper etc. Be creative! Maybe a little flower in the corner of the tray would be a nice touch ...
