Running shoe inflation ...and no, I don't mean Reebok Pump or Nike Air
The Running Moron dug through the data for four major shoe companies to compile information about the number of brands offered, and the price per pair of shoes . As a number-cruncher by day, and a runner by night, I say "bravo" to TRM for his painstaking research.
Men aren't from Mars
New research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology offers proof that men and women are not as different as pop culture headlines, like 'Men are from Mars' and 'The End of Men,' would lead the public to believe.
