Time for your weekly dose of man knowledge, gentlemen!

This edition of 15 Things A Man Must Know This Week! is a potpourri of special (?) beers, semi-NSFW music videos, exclusive transoceanic offerings, and a dash of celebrity couple gossip!

Read on!

Important environment news! If we don't do something about climate change soon, global sea levels would increase by up to five to six feet by 2100—less than 84 years from now—scientists predict. Such catastrophe would wipe out most of the Philippines, so we better act fast!

Heads up: Ariana Grande is SMOKING HOT in her video for "Dangerous Woman." Stop whatever you're doing and watch it RIGHT NOW!

Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach still hasn't confirmed the real score between her and Dr. Mike, though it sure looks like they're on very good terms. "Bago pa lang ako sa New York, mga three months pa lang naman ako dun, maganda rin yung mayroon kang nakikilala, di ba?" she was quoted by PEP.ph. "He's been very respectful in knowing that my priority is Miss Universe and I appreciate that very much... He knows that this is my life right now, and I have the organization behind me, WME/IMG (owner of Miss Universe Org), and the Philippines behind me, and he respects that.” Ano, may pag-asa pa ba tayo?

A Polish brewery called The Order of Yoni has launched an indiegogo campaign to produce vagina-laced beer. Yes guys, you read it right: vagina beer. "Using hi-tech of microbiology, we isolate, examine and prepare lactic acid bacteria from vagina of a unique woman," reads their Indiegogo page. "The bacteria, lactobacillus, transfers woman's features, allure, grace, glamour, and her instincts into beers and other products, turning them into a dance with lovely angel." Oh, and if you've got 10,000 EUR to spare, you can donate it to them and get 60 bottles of booze "produced on your girlfriend's vaginal bacteria." Great, now you can eat and drink your girl out!

In much better (beer) news, alcoholic beverage giant Asahi has commissioned a survey to find out what exactly Japanese consumers want in their lager. The result: "The Dream," which has "a sharp body," "a clean finish," and "50 percent less sugar than other standard canned beers." Now this is one drink that's absolutely right up our alley!

Solenn Heussaff has secured a castle in France as her wedding venue. Unfortunately, she has also foiled our plans of screaming "Itigil ang kasal!" when she ties the knot with fiance Nico Bolzico in May.


Speaking of France, the Aquarium de Paris is hosting a sleepover in their shark aquarium from April 11 to 13. That's right: You can spend two nights in Paris, surrounded by a bunch of sharks—for free! Just enter their contest hosted by AirBnb, cross your fingers, and hope you win!

Sad news for EDM fans: Top DJ Avicii has announced that he will soon retire at the ripe old age of 26. "My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I'm grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist," he wrote. "I will however never let go of music—I will continue to speak to my fans through it, but I've decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let's make them go out with a bang!"

Here's some major fitspo for you this weekend: Shirley Webb, a 78-year-old lola who can deadlift a whopping 225 pounds with ease. Idol!

We love a woman with beauty and brains, and Asia's Got Talent finalist Gerphil Flores definitely has both! She made it to the dean's list of the University of the Philippines—Diliman, where she's taking up Bachelor of Music, Major in Voice. With those chops, we're absolutely not surprised!


We're super excited for Rihanna's upcoming video for "Kiss It Better," which has been tagged as explicit. From the video's teaser, it looks like she's naked underneath that thin sheet of fabric, so make sure not to watch this one at work!

Suicide Squad
's international trailer is out, and it looks goddamn majestic. Seriously, we've never been this excited about a movie in such a long time!

's turn in Carpool Karaoke is definitely a must-see. Watch for her performance of "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Booty," stay for the prank text near the end!

On April 6, McDonald's Japan will be launching the limited-edition Giga Big Mac, which has 2.8 times as much meat than their regular Big Mac. Wash it down with equally giga-sized drinks and French fries for a giga-fun meal time!

We usually don't mind the smell of our own farts, but if you want yours to emit cherry blossoms, you should buy Nonara, a Japanese dietary supplement that promises to make your utot smell fabulous. They have it vanilla "flavor," too!


Love League of Legends? If you're really good, you might just be able to snag a working visa for Japan just like Koreans Ki Hon Han and Sang Ho Yun, the first two pro gamers to be given working visas for, well, gaming. That's all the motivation we need to keep playing!

A study has shown that judgmental "Grammar Nazis" tend to be introverted, while folks who aren't bothered too much by wrong spelling and erroneous subject-verb agreement are more sociable. Agree or disagree?
