Random Blogging For Thursday January 16th

Happy Thursday..  Wow, this week is going pretty fast if you ask me, i'm all right with that!  Here's what you missed on today's show.

The Morning Brain Buster:

Q.   1 out of 4 bones in your body are located here. Where?

A.   Your Feet!

 

Bonehead Of The Day:


On TLC's show, "My Strange Addiction" a New York woman admitted she is addicted to smelling and chewing on dirty diapers.

She keeps pee-soaked diapers in her drawers, purse and in the trunk of her car.

She has one while cooking in the kitchen and keeps one with her when she sleeps.

The woman admitted her obsession began two years ago when she started collecting dirty diapers.

She now gets them from friends and complete strangers. She said the taste is similar to sour candy and the heavier ones that contain more pee smell better.  

The woman's fiance is starting to get fed up with her habit now that the two are expecting their first child.

Where To Go If A Nuclear Bomb Hits, According To Scientists

A mathematical model has been created that could help save your life in the event that your city is hit by a nuclear bomb.

A scientist calculated the "optimal shelter exit time." The advice we've been hearing for years has been to seek shelter, ideally underground, if a bomb hits.

But there is better and worse shelter—the latter being "lightweight" buildings, or ones without basements. More than 20% of US homes fall into the worse category.

For people living within 20 miles of a low-yield nuclear blast, here are the recommendations:

• If it would take five minutes or less to reach better shelter (that concrete basement, or the center of a large building, like a big office), bypass the more immediate shelter and go there straight away.
• If better shelter is 15 minutes away, stay in the worse shelter for up to 30 minutes, then head out.
• As for the transit period, don't waste time worrying about protecting your body from the radiation, he says, which can mostly be rinsed off once you get to your shelter.

Specially Designed Glass Apparently Enhances The Taste Of Coca Cola


Glassware company Riedel has developed the ideal glass for Coca-Cola.

The glass aims to balance "sweetness, acidity, minerality, and effervescence." It also lets the bubbles linger and makes the aroma of the soda more intense.

The glass is designed specifically for regular Coke, not diet, and not any other soda brand.

The glass, is "inspired by the iconic curves of the original Coca-Cola contour bottle," wide at the top, cinched at the waist, then wider again at the bottom. It resembles the old soda fountain glasses in malt shops and luncheonette counters around the country.

It costs $29.90 for two and they will be produced in limited quantity.

Brainwashed By Tony The Tiger!

Researchers asked almost 200 adults how much they liked Tony the Tiger and fellow Kellogg's mascot Coco the Monkey. The adults were also asked how healthy they believed the products to be.

The older adults who saw Tony the Tiger but not Coco the Monkey as children believed the Frosted Flakes to be better for them than the Coco Pops.

But the younger adults who saw both cartoon characters as children rated the two cereals as being equally good for them.
