Are you one of those people who's always in a relationship?
Or maybe you're perpetually single?
Well, your status might have something to do with your genes, according to a new study out of China.
Researchers in Beijing discovered the gene named 5-HTA1. Carriers are reportedly 20 percent more likely to be single.
According to the Daily Mirror: "5-HTA1 is thought to lower serotonin levels - a feel-good chemical - which causes people to feel uncomfortable in close relationships."
Carriers are also generally more neurotic and have a higher rate of depression.
And researchers found those attributes are "detrimental to the formation, quality and stability of relationships."
But some experts questioned the reliability of the research — this was from a relatively small sample size of 600 people, and all of them students.
One relationship expert told the Daily Mail: "If someone's difficulties with dating are flagged up to them, I believe they can learn to interact in a way that will make them more successful in meeting somebody."
Still, when Grandma asks you again this Christmas why you're still not married, you can tell her she's at least a teeny bit responsible.
New details have emerged about Myron May, the gunman police shot and killed after he allegedly opened fire and wounded three people inside a Florida State University campus library Thursday morning.
Thirty-one-year-old May is an FSU alum who went on to become an attorney. He had recently returned to Florida to start up his own law firm.
But recent Facebook activity lead police to believe May was paranoid the government was out to get him.
"Mr. May had a written journal and videos where he expressed fears of being targeted," Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said in a press conference.
The Inquisitr says the lawyer posted "a number of ominous Biblical passages, a short rant against 'our government' and a bizarre image depicting a Google search for 'targeted individuals.'"
The FSU alum posted on a Facebook page called "Targeted Individuals Worldwide," a group which contends the U.S. government is using mind-control technology to manipulate its citizens.
His post reads: "Has anyone here ever been encouraged by your handler to kill with a promise of freedom?"
Pretty much the same goes for this video May posted on his Facebook page where former professional wrestler Jesse Ventura explores, "Remote Neural Monitoring" a supposed NSA spying technology.
CBS also says there's some "indication" May's psychological troubles extended to his personal life as well.
- Last month, May's ex-girfriend told police he harassed her.
- She said he 'had developed a severe mental disorder'
- She also said he believed 'cops were after him, bugging his phone and putting cameras in his car and home.'
- And he took prescription drugs for ADHD, though the 'affliction had worsened' recently.
Some of the other people who knew May, including the best man at his wedding, say his actions shocked them as well.
"I feel for the people that he shot, but I just want people to know that's not who he was and I believe 100 percent, he was not in his right mind when he did that," said Keith Jones to WCTV.
As for the students of FSU, they came together for a candlelight vigil Thursday night for the three people injured in the shooting. One victim remains in critical condition, another is in good condition and the third victim was released after treatment for minor wounds.
American stomachs will be the final resting place of about 11 billion cranberries this holiday season, mostly in the form of jiggly canned cranberry sauce.
So what exactly is this stuff?
Cranberry sauce was invented by Marcus L. Urann in 1912 as a way to use cranberries year round, according to Ocean Spray. Canned jellied sauce was first sold in stores in 1941.
Cranberries are native to America and are grown almost exclusively in Canada and the northern United States.
From bud to harvest, it takes 16 months to grow a cranberry. And it takes 200 cranberries to make one can of jellied sauce.
Most of them begin their lives in Wisconsin. Each year, 8 million barrels ($400 million worth) are harvested in the fall, with 95 percent of them processed into juices, sauces and other products, according to Iowa State University.
At Ocean Spray, the lightest colored cranberries are used for sauce, otherwise it might look kind of weird. They’re cooked in a kettle 400 pounds at a time along with some water and added sugar.
The sweet, hot goo is then sent straight to the can, which is sealed and cooled with water. The sauce gels naturally in a day or two because of pectin, a complex sugar in the berries that's also used to make jam.
Kroger, the largest supermarket chain in the U.S., sold nearly 9 million pounds of cranberries and sauces in 2013. Eight in ten of those purchases are made about a month before Thanksgiving.
