Okay lemme tell you something, Tupperware parties are THE STUPIDEST GODDAMN THINGS TO EVER HE BROUGHT UP FROM THE PITS OF SATAN'S ASSHOLE. Basically once per week/month a SHIT TON OF MIDDLE AGED WOMEN GATHER AT SOMEONES HOUSE AND THEY TALK ABOUT FUCKING PLASTIC FOOD HOLDERS FOR 2-3 MOTHER FUCKING HOURS. MY MOTHER WAS ALWAYS THE PERSON WHOSE HOUSE THESE THINGS WERE HELD SO EVERY FRIDAY OR SATURDAY NIGHT I HAD FUCKING TWENTY 30-40-YEAR-OLD WOMEN IN MY HOUSE TALKING ABOUT TUPPERWARE FOR 3 HOURS.

It slows your breathing and reduces brain activity to such an extent that Weightless, written by Manchester band Marconi Union, is said to be one of the ‘most relaxing songs ever’.

The eight-minute track is so effective at inducing sleep, motorists have now been warned they should not listen to it whilst driving.

The band worked with sound therapists to get advice on how to make the most effective use of harmonies, rhythms and bass lines. The result on listeners is a slowing of the heart rate, reduced blood pressure and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Scientists played the song to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay, all considered as very relaxing musicians. [x]
