38 days of our lives are spent waiting for parcels and goods to be delivered, and a further 18 days spent queuing at post offices (from TalkTalk)
90% of us have a dark side, with the average Brit confessing to six bad deeds in the last 12 months – probably plotted in those post office queues, we suspect (from playojo.com)
Keeping up with the Joneses isn’t as common as you might fear – while 21% covet the life (or possessions) of their next-door neighbour, more of us (55%) want the lifestyle of our best friend (Currys PC World)
Hectic schedules, family commitments and a lack of faith in our talents are the reason 63% of British people are “letting their creativity die” (BIC)
It’s not all doom and gloom though, a Giraffe World Kitchen poll said a third of parents say their children are culinarily adventurous and half said ‘they will try most things”. As a result your average 5-year-old today has probably scoffed hummus, churros, edamame beans, gyozas, tagine, halloumi, and chorizo among others – several years ahead of their parents who tend not to have tried such adventurous dishes until their late teens or even their twenties.
In these round-ups we’re taking a look at just a few of the stories you might have missed on the Press Release Wire. These may not be to your taste (although do try the churros, they’re delicious, as any five year old will tell you) so why not take a look at http://pressreleases.responsesource.com/news and see if there’s some background for your next story?
