Famed germaphobe Howie Mandel was right. Fist bumps are far more sanitary than handshakes. Scientists at Aberystwyth University in the UK discovered that handshakes transfer 10 times as many bacteria as a meeting of fists, while a palm-to-palm high-five was somewhere in-between.

Do you ever tell little white lies? New research finds that telling your partner you like his (horrible) new haircut can actually strengthen your relationship. Researchers created a mathematical model that shows those who tell white, or pro-social, lies tend to form stronger links with others in their social networks.

The model may help psychologists better understand the effects of lying in online communities.
