A:  The weather report

 

Bonehead Of The Day:

A Florida couple stole about $1,000 worth of stuff from the Victoria's Secret at a mall in Sanford.

The burglars swiped the lingerie right off the shelves, stealing 20 bras worth around $1,040.

Police got a big clue about the couple's plans from Facebook, where the woman posted that she was going "shopping" to "Victoria's Secret", "place your orders."

Sanford police haven't found the crooks yet, but the duo may be the same thieves responsible for another similar theft.

Bad Night Sleep?  It Could Be The Moon

The full moon can lead to a bad night's sleep.   

Researchers studied 33 people in a lab while they slept. Their brain patterns were monitored while sleeping, along with eye movements and hormone secretions.

RESULTS:

Around the full moon, brain activity related to deep sleep dropped by 30%.

People also took five minutes longer to fall asleep and they slept for twenty minutes less time overall during the full moon. 

The participants also felt as though their sleep was poorer when the moon was full.

More Men Doing Butt Implants... Really?!?! 

More men are having procedures to make their butts look plump. 

Plastic surgeons say there's been an increase in the number of men undergoing liposuction on their love-handles and having the extracted fat injected into their buttocks.

They say the procedure is especially popular with middle-aged men who are becoming more self-conscious about their butts.

American Idol Rumors

An insider close to "American Idol" says that the show is closing in on its judges' line-up for season 13.

Jennifer Lopez, who earned about $15 million a season as an Idol judge in 2011 and 2012, is at the top of the producers' wish list- but talks have stalled over money.

Idol is also reportedly in talks with season three finalist-turned-Oscar winner, Jennifer Hudson, and super producer, Will.I.Am, who spent the last two seasons as a coach for the UK version of "The Voice."

Keith Urban, the well-liked country star and season 12 judge, looks set to return as well, and pop producer, Dr. Luke, was also in the running at one point.

Even at this late stage -- auditions for season 13 are taking place now, with 8,000 turning out for try-outs in Detroit.

10 Facts About Chuck Norris' House

Chuck Norris' Dallas home has gone up for sale which means we get a little sneak peek into the life of one of America's greatest legends.

Here's what we've learned.

1. Chuck Norris practices what he preaches - he actually has a Total Gym XLS Home Gym in his house.

2. Shutters on the windows? Yep - so he can show himself to lightning and thunder and scare them away from his Dallas skies.

3. There are antlers on the wall and a cheetah print carpet on the floor - you can only guess how the animals got there (his bare hands.)

4. Shop alone? Think again. Chuck used brother Aaron to choose this house.

5. Think you can sit across from Chuck Norris? The chair across from his desk is significantly smaller than his personal desk chair.

6. The pool in the back? Chuck eats in it.

7. Ceramic flowers in the bathroom. Sure. Who's going to make fun of Chuck Norris?

8. Chuck needs a double door entry way - so the bears he tackles around the house can fit in.

9. No shower in the house? That's right - Chuck's only worry is getting his hair wet.

10. Dining room made of clear glass? You bet.

City's New Ordinance Puts Strict Restrictions On Noise.  No Yelling, Whistling Or Singing

The town of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania has approved a strict law against noise that has banned all yelling, whistling, and even singing on public streets.

The new police claims that residents are "entitled to the peaceful enjoyment of their premises," and it also defines loud noises as horns, radio, musical instruments and any sound that annoys or disturbs their quiet and comfort.

The town is still working out the details of how the new rule would be enforced, especially since the noise ban could include dog barking and other things outside of a resident's control.

Violations can result in a fine of up to $500.

America's Worst Drivers Are In ...  Miami

According to Allstate which uses claims data to determine how often drivers in the largest 200 U.S. cities get into accidents.

 

No. 5: Baltimore. Baltimoreans just can't keep from running into each other. They were outside the top 10 in fatalities, DWI deaths and pedestrian strikes, but their rate of collision couldn't keep them out of the top five overall.

No. 4: Tampa, Fla. Tampa is 18th worst in years between accidents, fifth in traffic fatalities, tied for 11th in DWI fatalities, and 10th in pedestrian strikes..

No. 3: Hialeah (Miami-Dade County, Florida). The drivers of Hialeah get into a middling number of accidents, ranking 11th among the 39 candidates. But the city finished third for fatalities. They also have a terrifying tendency to hit pedestrians.

No. 2: Philadelphia. Second-places finishes in collisions and pedestrian strikes overwhelm their semi-respectable 16th-place ranking in DWI deaths.


** No. 1: Miami. And it's not even close. First in automotive fatalities, first in pedestrian strikes, first in the obscenity-laced tirades of their fellow drivers.

 

 

** In 2012, the unofficial "worst drivers" title went to Washington, D.C., followed by Baltimore, Providence, R.I., Hialeah, and Glendale, Calif.
