Read on for a new edition of the 15 Things A Man Must Know This Week!
Maine Mendoza may be the most in-demand lady this side of town, but she’s still humble as heck. "It will take a while before I will get used to this," she said in a recent interview with Pep.ph. "The cameras, the smiling, all surreal." Yep, that’s why we love her!
Check out these Season 6 teasers for Game of Thrones! It’s definitely going to be an action-packed year, with lots of activity from the Lannisters, the (remaining) Starks, and the Greyjoys. We can’t wait!
Dating site WhatsYourPrice.com has released an image of what they deemed as "America’s Perfect Woman," and surprise: It’s not the typical blonde bombshell. The "Perfect Woman" is 5’9”, Jewish, and of Middle Eastern descent, with dark brown hair and brown eyes and an athletic body. She also holds a graduate degree, doesn’t smoke, and only drinks socially. How does this hold up to your own definition of the perfect woman?
Good news for the Philippines: We’re officially the first country where you can get Dengvaxia, the world’s first-ever dengue vaccine. This new medical breakthrough "is expected to reduce dengue cases in the country by over 24-percent in a span of five years," and would be administered in three doses. Good job, DOH!

Who knew Justin Bieber's "Sorry" could be so dramatic?
Here’s an out-of-the-box gift for the discriminating girl: Doritos roses, which you could totally DIY. You could probably also eat them, but only if you’re really hungry.
The band OK Go has gained a reputation for pushing the boundaries for cutting-edge music videos, and their latest, for their new single "Upside Down & Inside Out," sticks to tradition. Watch their really awesome zero gravity video below!
Speaking of gravity, the existence of gravitational waves has been confirmed after two gravitational wave detectors discovered ripples from a pair of black holes that collided eons ago. This further confirms Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Science is so freaking cool.
Airbnb has been a godsend for travelers, with really nice lodging for all budgets. The Art Institute of Chicago, however, took it a notch further by creating a replica of Vincent Van Gogh’s iconic painting, The Bedroom, which you could rent for a mere $10 (around P470) a night! Cheap!
Speaking of cool Airbnbs, Beyonce rented a $10,000 (around P470,000) a night five-bedroom, 11-acre property while in San Francisco for Super Bowl 50. The swanky mansion has "a gym, a game room with a full bar, a vanished edge pool, 60 fruit trees, a rooftop vegetable garden, and a chicken coop," and it’s apparently a steal for all its amenities and location.
The Dogist is the best Instagram account to follow if you’re a dog lover, and while you’re familiar with the concept (it’s basically Humans of New York, but with dogs), you probably don’t know the dude behind it. That’s Elias Weiss Friedman, and we can’t help but be a bit jealous of his gig.
Here are two things we love intersecting in a delicious manner: Deadpool and sisig. Lead star Ryan Reynolds handed out sisig chimichangas from a food truck called Señor Sisig in San Francisco to promote Deadpool. Oh man, how we wish we were there to taste it!

You’re right for now, but probably not for long: DENR Secretary Ramon Paje recently announced that the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (Namria) "discovered" more than 400 previously "unknown" islands located all over the country. This development made us reminisce about this landmark question in the 1994 Miss Universe pageant:
