That's two aces for the happy couple

A husband and wife in Michigan claim they each made a hole in one back-to-back — at the same hole, no less — during a round of golf last weekend. The couple were playing at Ledge Meadows golf course in Grand Ledge, The Lansing State Journal reports.

After Tony Blundy hit his first hole-in-one as an amateur golfer, his wife Janet told him, “You’re gonna be really mad at me when I put mine in,” the Journal reports. According to Golf Digest, the odds of two amateurs in a foursome making a hole-in-one on the same day and on the same hole are 26,000,000 to 1.

Luckily, two “independent witnesses” — golfers at a nearby hole — saw the couple make these aces, otherwise, Tony said, “nobody would ever believe us.”

Here’s When You Should Really Be Drinking Your Coffee

It all comes down to science

Many coffee drinkers probably reach for their morning cup of joe immediately after waking up, but this video from AsapSCIENCE reveals that that’s not really the best idea if you want to maximize your levels of energy and alertness.

The main factors at play are your body’s circadian rhythm and the times when your body produces the hormone cortisol, which affects your level of alertness throughout the day.

The video’s narrator explains that 9 a.m. is probably the ideal time for most people to drink their coffee, because it’s right after your body’s peak cortisol production. Watch up top to learn more.

Mariah Carey Says She Will ‘Absolutely Not’ Return to American Idol

"Pitting two females against each other wasn't cool"

Would Mariah Carey come back to American Idol in the show’s final season? “Hell no,” the singer said.

“Hell no, absolutely not, that was the worst experience of my life,” the former Idol judge said on an Australian radio show reports the The Wrap. “I’m not going to get into what it was, but let’s just say I don’t think they had any intentions for us to have a good experience doing that show.”

Carey’s time on the show was defined by the singer’s battles with fellow judge Nicki Minaj — let’s not forget the great Mean Girls war of 2013. Talk of the animosity between the stars began even before the season aired. (To relive those not-so-halcyon days, take a look at MTV’s timeline.) Back in 2013, Carey said her time on the show was “like going to work in hell with Satan.”

“Pitting two females against each other wasn’t cool,” she now has added. “It should have been about the contestants instead of some non-existent feud that turned into even more ridiculousness. I would never want to be involved with it again.”

So any potential judges reunion will probably be missing at least one alum.

This Swedish Band Released Music You Can Only Hear in the Woods

John Moose has specific plans for listeners of their pre-release album app

A folk band from Sweden called John Moose pre-released their first album on a mobile app that fans can only listen to from a forest.

The group’s website, where the album app can be downloaded for free, offers the following cryptic instructions: “Download the John Moose app and walk to the woods. Only there will the album be available for listening.” In an email to Rolling Stone the band explained, “The app uses Google Maps where forests have a specific green color. GPS coordinates are sent from the smartphone to a web service which scans the map through Google Maps Static API and uses a specific algorithm to determine if the user is in the woods ‘enough.'”

The band’s drummer Tobias Norén designed the geolocation feature to get listeners to think about nature, because the album is about a man who decides to remove himself from society and live in nature.

Stressed Students Now Using Piglets to Calm Down

Nottingham Trent University has discovered the best way to ease tension during exams

Gone are the days when college students managed their anxiety by gorging themselves on bacon. Today’s university students would rather use pigs for cuddling.

Students at Nottingham Trent University in the U.K. have organized an event for their peers to kick back and relax during exam season by spending a few minutes petting and playing with piglets, Mashable reports.

The organizers had a popular event last year featuring a puppy room to raise money for guide dogs. This year’s piglet room will raise funds for the same cause, and the seven piglets are joined by barnyard friends like two goats, a donkey and chickens. But most folks just seem excited about the #PigletRoom.

When Shedding a Few Pounds Meant Reaching for Some Milk

In the 1930s, women attempted to lose weight by spending time at a dairy farm

In recent years, rich dairy foods haven’t exactly had a reputation as fad-diet favorites. That may be changing, and it wouldn’t be the first time that foods like butter appealed to those hoping to get healthy. In fact, dairy was so central to a women’s weight loss retreat in the 1930s that the camp was situated on a milk farm.

Rose Dor Farm, located up the Hudson River from New York City, was run by siblings Bob, Rosalie and Doris Taplinger. A ten-day stay came with a strict diet—three days of what today would be called juicing, followed by a week of cultured milk and vegetables—as well as gym classes. As LIFE described the farm:

Men who get out of condition from sitting too long at a desk or leading too high a life have long been in the habit of slipping off for a couple of weeks of clean living and hard exercise at some health farm. Now women whom the pace of modern life requires to look their best are turning increasingly to “milk farms” where strict diet and regular scientific exercise takes pounds off oversize figures.

If many of the women in Alfred Eisenstaedt’s photographs don’t appear to have much weight to lose, it’s because the farm attracted “not only stylish stouts but many a young girl who wants to work off a few pounds to get that modeling job.”

Some women, like one Mrs. Remer of Kansas City, couldn’t resist the temptation to cheat (“she sneaked fried chicken till caught”). Barring lapses from the milk-and-veggies diet, women could expect to lose a pound per day.

Disney Is Weighing Surge Pricing for Parks

U.S. Navy Blue Angels Soar Above Cinderella Castle At Walt Disney World Resort

The flyover featured the Blue Angels' six-jet F/A-18 Hornet Delta Formation making two dramatic passes above the Magic Kingdom, with Cinderella Castle as a focal point, en route to an air show in Florida.

The company sent out a survey asking questions about whether guests would pay more for peak days

Visitors to Disneyland and Disney World may find themselves paying more for entry to the parks on peak days during the summer, spring break and Christmas time.

Walt Disney Co. sent out surveys to annual pass holders asking questions that suggest it is considering this change, gauging how they would react to a tiered pricing system, the L.A. Times reports. In Anaheim, Calif.’s Disneyland, a day pass currently costs $99 for those aged 10 and up; under the hypothetical new system, that price would stay the same for off-peak days, but most other, regular days would cost $105, while peak days would cost $115. In Disney World, the Orlando Sentinel reports, the current rate of $105 for ages 10 and up for the Magic Kingdom might remain an option while the most expensive days might cost $125.

The company told both papers that it frequently polls its customers on a wide range of topics, giving little weight to this particular survey.

The reunion series will feature most of the original cast members

The final puzzle piece is in place!

John Stamos announced via Twitter Thursday that Bob Saget will reprise his role as Danny on Fuller House, the Netflix revival of the old ABC comedy.

News of Saget’s addition comes just hours after it was announced that Lori Loughlin will join the reunion series that will also feature Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. The only original castmembers who aren’t joining in on the fun are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who seem to have bigger fish to fry.

Fuller House will focus on a pregnant and widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Cameron-Bure), who is living in San Francisco with her aspiring musician sister Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and fellow single mom Kimmy Gibbler (Barber). The revival won’t premiere until 2016.
