It's a well-known fact that actor Bill Murray can turn up anywhere, at anytime, inject your life with a dash of sage-like wisdom, and then disappear back into the world like some kind of burly fairy godmother. Events like these happen with such delightful randomness and frequency that there's a website devoted to tales of Bill Murray encounters.
One such appearance occurred this week, at a bachelor party in Charleston, WV. Murray is caught on video (posted on Deadspin) sharing his tip for deciding whether or not marriage is the right choice in a relationship. As you can guess from the fact we're talking about it, Bill's focus is on travel companionship.
You can watch the video above to get it straight from Murray's mouth, or see the quote below.
Now that George Clooney's mom has confirmed that the world's most notorious bachelor is indeed settling down with Amal Alamuddin, it's time to start wedding planning.
Based on Clooney's own travels and favorite locations, we've narrowed it down to 3 potential locations for the couple's nuptials:
Barrister Amal Alamuddin has figured out that one of the many perks of dating George Clooney is the non-stop luxury travel.
On March 13, George and Amal were spotted strolling arm-in-arm along the beach in Seychelles with a couple of frosty drinks. Then, just a few days later, George brought her to Tanzania to watch wildlife.
If your Valentine's Day was a total disappointment, here are three perfect celebrity dates you can live through vicariously.
· X Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger spent Friday afternoon on a romantic tour of Rome with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Lewis Hamilton. The couple had an idyllic day feeding each other Gelato, riding around on scooters from Bici & Baci, and touring the Colosseum.
As much as we hate to say it, now is the time to begin buying holiday gifts…specifically those which require some extra time for customization. Now comes the difficult part: what exactly to get for someone who "has it all," or "has been everywhere?"
We've had our own eye on simple, metal jewelry stamped with the latitude and longitude of a special place. Google Maps can easily provide that information, and handmade-focused sites like Etsy are chock full of expensive and inexpensive options, from leather cuffs with tiny pewter plaques, to engraved necklace pendants and this unisex ring.
For example, a friend went this route to commemorate the very location she made a life-changing decision and literally changed course. She now wears a bracelet to remember to keep moving forward, even if it's actually away from that specific spot.

It's craxy to think that it's already been 9 months since the South Korean hit song "Gangnam Style" began its viral spread and climb from K-pop success to international movement. Just as crazy is the fact that the music video holds the record of being the first YouTube video to be viewed over 1 billion times.
Last week, Psy released the sequel song and video to Gangnam Style, called it simply "Gentleman." To say it was highly anticipated would be a gross understatement, but we're happy to say that Psy hasn't let us down one bit; in fact, it's reignited our love for Seoul.
For the uninitiated, Psy is a South Korean pop star, though he's also been called a rapper. In this song and video, as in Gangnam Style, he pokes fun at the style and assumed swagger of Seoul's Gangnam-gu, a flashy district with high rents, high expectations and a focus on the high-status lifestyle. Psy traipses about the city as he thinks a gentleman would, although he's unable to part with his un-gentlemanly ways until he finds a girl who puts him in check. No amount of money or indulging in what's construed as classy can fix his pranking ways, but love can.
Without further ado, here's 5 real-life locations from the music video, "Gentleman":
To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Cunard World Club is offering Austen-themed tours on select Queen Mary 2 Transatlantic Crossings.
The tours include a visit to the Winchester Cathedral with a focus on the Life & Times of Jane Austen, a trip to the Jane Austen Museum and Chawton House Library, and a day trip to Stonehenge and the Salisbury Cathedral, one of the filming locations in 1995's Sense & Sensibility.
Tours start at $850 and take place in July, August, October, and November. To see the full schedule, visit cunard.com.
Gather around children, whilst we explain the difference between correlation and causation. This might sound a little bit condescending and pedantic, but that's only because we're going out of our way be condescending and pedantic. Ready?
Causation is when A causes B. Correlation is merely when A and B vary together in some way. Maybe it's because A is actually causing B. But maybe it's because B causing A, or maybe it's because they're both being caused by C, or maybe it's because A and B are actually the same thing, and so on. Easy enough, right?

Just in case you haven't walked within a few feet of the greeting card section of your local drugstore, this week is Valentine's Day. Consider this fair warning if you haven't already scrambled to buy chocolates or flowers, but if you don't have a special one just yet, Jetstar has the solution to your problem. "LoveJet"! (cue the cheesy music)
The Australian low-cost carrier has hooked up with Aussie dating site, RSVP, to bring the world some real (multi-)mile-high dating. Last year, we saw KLM try to pair passengers looking for interesting conversation and a possible love connection, but Jetstar is actually planning on making the relationship magic happen.
For those looking for a little something extra this holiday season—like a relationship—we bring you the latest in internet dating sites. This one has a special place in our hearts, and not because we used it to find our travel companion soul mate. It’s because this latest site has everything to do with meeting up at the airport, so your Sbarro slice may never be the same.
The cleverly named—we kid—MeetAtTheAirport.com promises to help you meet exciting people while waiting for your flight, and they claim that you’ll never be bored at the airport again. We’re sure there’s someone out there for everyone, but despite their attempts, we’re thinking that a couple of your potential matches made in the terminal aren’t going to turn out that darn wonderful. So we'd still bring the iPad along to prevent boredom.

Doubtless by now you've seen the music video taking the internet by storm: Psy's "Gangnam Style." As we write this, the YouTube version (posted above) is edging near its 70 millionth view, a staggering number considering it's only been online since July and sits pretty solid atop the YouTube Top 100.
For the uninitiated, Psy is a South Korean pop star though he's also been called a rapper. In this song and video, he pokes fun at the style of Seoul's Gangnam-gu, a flashy district with high rents, high expectations and a focus on the high-status lifestyle. Psy traipses about the city, asserting that he is Gangnam-style and wants a girl similarly so, but there's always a twist; scratching the gilded surface reveals the generic reality.
For all Psy's trendy costumes and big dance moves, the locations happen to steal the show and, though we've been to Seoul in the past, "Gangnam Style" had us yearning for a return visit. Will it impact tourism? There's a very good possibility, but first you've got to know where to go to film yourself mimicking the horse riding dance moves.
Five real-life locations from Psy's music video, "Gangnam Style":

The Hoover wedding
The month of June may be over, but the slew of summer weddings is far from following. While tuxedo rental places charge peak prices and caterers artfully fold cloth napkins, we're wondering where all these newlyweds are heading on their honeymoons. Odds are that tropical islands are at the top of the list, but what about places like Ohio or Georgia?
These were the hotspots for Presidential honeymoons, according to an exhaustive list by The Awl that names the known honeymoon destinations of all 44 US presidents and their wives.
It's absolutely worth a full look, but here's our favorite:
