The incident happened when the pair was on vacation in Barcelona, Spain. “We decided that we wanted to have children together, and it was just time. But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control," he said on the show.

"By the way, it was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out. It is a lot of work, especially after a little bit of sangria," he continued. Somerhalder even videotaped himself throwing out the pills.

Somerhalder insisted he did it without Reed's permission, but after having discussed with her and with friends that the couple wanted to have children. He also admitted: "Actually, now thinking about it, I guess I kind of decided [to start a family].”

Do you ever feel like you are much older and wiser than your actual age? Or perhaps you feel that you’re a lot younger and quicker than you’ve ever been before. Whatever the case may be, here’s your chance to find out precisely what your brain age is!
This fun interactive visual quiz features a variety of images, each of which will make you look twice. The pictures in it are meant to engage your brain. Some are colorful, others black and white, and they’re all optical illusions in one sense or another. All that you need is a minute of time, your eyes, and of course, your brain. In the end, it will tell you what your brain age really happens to be.
Before you begin, think about what you’d guess your brain age to be. Pick a number, whether it be your current age or something lower or higher than that. Keep it in the back of your mind and when you get your results, see how far off (or spot on) you are!
As for our brains and aging, it’s often assumed that the older you get, the wiser you get. Each year that goes by is supposed to leave us with more knowledge and lessons tucked away under our belt. All the new experiences and people we meet teach us things, and by just living out our lives and growing up, we become smarter and more worldly. In theory that could very well be true, but the reality is that life is not so simple.
There are so many factors that can affect your brain age and function, and so not everyone ages in the same manner. Everything from diet and exercise, getting the recommended amount of nightly sleep, reading books and listening to music, and keeping yourself mentally engaged and aware of your surroundings can have an impact on your brain.
The quiz below is a great way to have fun while testing your brain’s abilities, visual perception, age, and the all important brain-eye connection. The following seven questions might seem a bit broad and ambiguous to some, but they’ve been specifically chosen for their ability to help pinpoint, analyze, and determine our real brain age. So take it now and see if the age that your answers reflect matches or comes close to what you originally guessed. Enjoy!

It’s been said that the key to maintaining a healthy weight begins in the kitchen and that it’s 80% diet, 20% exercise and lifestyle. That simple belief has not slowed or lessened humanity’s ongoing desire and search for the latest and greatest miracle cure that promises to help us shed the pounds faster and easier. People are willing to try anything to lose weight, from fasting and taking risky pills to restricting their diet and getting plastic surgery.
While losing weight can be extremely difficult, there are some basic things that you can to to naturally activate your weight loss hormones. Those are the hormones which regulate and have the biggest impact on our body weight. That way you can achieve a healthier overall balance, and weight, without having to resort to the more drastic measures mentioned above. Below are five ways in which you can turn on weight loss hormones, so give them a try and see if they can make a difference in your life:
1. Eat a Proper Breakfast. Never skip the most important meal of the day because it helps to switch your body from a state of fasting to an awake, calorie burning machine. That’s because when you’re asleep and in a state of rest your metabolism, breathing, and heart rate are all slowed down. In order to start your day off right and turn on the weight loss hormones, you need to eat a balanced breakfast. That means a meal consisting of healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates that’s around 800 calories or less.
2. Focus on Your Breathing. By practicing certain measured breathing techniques you can speed up your metabolism and burn through more calories than you would with regular, normal breathing patterns. According to a recent study, the following breathing technique led to participants having an increased resting metabolic oxygen consumption rate of up to thirty-seven percent. What they were asked to do was breathe through only one nostril at a time, closing off the other one completely, for twenty-seven breathing cycles. This was done four times per day for one month and it was found to make that much of a difference by speeding up metabolism and activating weight loss hormones.
3. Eat More Satisfying Types of Foods. When you eat junk foods that are filled with sugar and salt you won’t feel full for long and so you end up eating even more just to feel sated. By choosing to eat more filling foods that leave you feeling satisfied for longer after eating, you can avoid piling on the pounds. The hormone which is primarily responsible for making us feel full is leptin and it can be found in high amounts in the following list of foods; oatmeal, hot peppers such as jalapenos, grapefruit, turkey, chicken and other lean types of meats like beef and pork, fish such as tuna, salmon, and sardines, yogurt (the low-fat variety), broccoli, green tea, almonds, eggs, beans, skim milk, olive oil, turmeric, and apples. Working these leptin-rich foods into your diet will naturally leave you feeling fuller for longer and will help prevent you from over-eating.
4. Aim to Get a Quality Nights Rest. By getting the recommended 6-8 hours of sleep every night, you will feel better all around. Failing to get enough sleep leads to leptin levels dropping, the hormone that makes you feel full, and so you’ll be more likely to eat more and yet still not feel satisfied. That leads to overeating as your body is looking for ways to make up for the energy it’s lacking from the lack of sleep. Studies have found that people who don’t get enough sleep are at an increased risk for a number of health issues, including gaining weight.
5. Aim to Increase and Build up Your Muscles. Working out and lifting weights is the key to increasing muscle mass. When you lift heavy weights enough times to feel a burn that means your body is producing testosterone, a sex hormone that we all have in our systems and which helps build muscle by burning fat. You don’t even need a gym or set of weights to activate this weight loss hormone. Instead, by simply carrying heavy things like groceries, packages, or even your kids whenever you get a chance to throughout the day, you can increase testosterone levels. However, doing a number of repetitions and lifting weights to the point where you can feel it, and are sore the next day, is a key factor to shedding pounds.

Anyone who wishes to stay as sharp and intelligent as possible needs to keep on top of things in order to maintain and expand their breadth of knowledge. A great way to do exactly that is by testing yourself periodically in order to examine what you know and are able to remember, as well as what you don’t know or may have possibly forgotten.
One great way to scan your brain and memory is with one of the most basic types of tests out there; a spelling quiz! We’ve all had to take a bunch of spelling tests back in our grade school days, it was an integral part of any child’s studies and public school’s curriculum. While most of the terms tested were of the common, fundamental variety, there were always a few tricky ones mixed in.
The quiz featured below is modeled on those classic types of spelling bees that you were given in school and it’s guaranteed to put your brain, mind, and memory to the test. The words that it quizzes you on are among some of the trickiest, most commonly misspelled words in the English language. While most of us will definitely know how to spell some of them without even thinking about it, more than a few of these words are guaranteed to make you stop and think about the correct spelling, or at the very least trip you up a bit.
Brain-based challenges like this spelling quiz are excellent ways for us to explore our overall intelligence and logic abilities. All that you have to rely on is your memory, reasoning, and brain because there is no spell check or automatic correction that you can fall back on, unless you cheat!
In this quiz there are a total of twenty-one words to work through. If you are able to spell all of them correctly, then congratulations because that means you are way above average. Take the test now and see if you can pass it and get a perfect score, which according to Playbuzz, means that you have an IQ of 142 or higher! In the end, the most important thing that you can do is just have fun, even if you don’t do so well, who cares! Let us know how you do and good luck!

When you get super ticked off and heated, what color does your anger burn at? While that may sound like kind of a strange question to ask, it will hopefully make sense at the end of all this. When it comes to colors, there is an immense amount of background information available on what each different hue of the rainbow represents. Numerous studies, surveys, and ever-ongoing research in the field of color psychology has shown all sorts of interesting things, some of which can be linked to anger and our perception of it in both ourselves and others.
Perhaps one of the clearest concepts to emerge from the data is the color-personality link. People as a whole tend to equate individual colors with certain attributes, traits, energies, and emotions. Take for example the color red. What do you immediately associate red with? The most common answers include love, anger, blood, passion, desire, and rage. Now think about what the color blue evokes in your mind’s eye. If you envision peace, tranquility, depth, the sky, and water, you’re in good company.
Those commonly shared understandings of what each color is linked with can tell you what color your anger is by the way you experience the fiery emotion. How often and quick you get upset, the types of things that set you off, how deep you seethe, the ways in which you show it, and other related factors are what this quiz explores. By examining those personal elements in light of color psychology, it determines the likely color your anger is currently vibrating at.
Work your way through the quiz to find out if your frustration and anger manifests as a deep and sensitive blue, a mellow looking yellow, a grounded and heavy brown, a fiery red, or perhaps some other color like purple, white, or green. Please this on with friends and family so they can also delve into their own personal anger color profile and as always, enjoy!
