Good Morning! Happy Tuesday! Here's what you missed on today's show.
The Morning Brain Buster:
Q. According to a new study, Men will start turning into their fathers at the age of 38. What's the #1 sign a man is becoming his Dad?
A. He falls asleep in the living room!
Bonehead Of The Day:
This kid really, really needed a vacation. CNN is reporting a still unidentified 16-year-old made it from San Jose, California to Maui, Hawaii riding in the landing gear of a Boeing 767 after he ran away from home over the weekend.
Ground crew at Kahului Airport noticed the boy walking around the tarmac "dazed and confused" and that's when he told authorities of his very uncomfortable flight. According to the site, if his story pans out, the teenager flew for almost five hours in a cramped space with no oxygen and in subzero temperatures. Some people, like Jeff Wise, don't believe him. "It sounds really incredible," the aviation expert said. "Being in a wheel well is like all of a sudden being on top of Mount Everest. Between the oxygen depletion and the cold, life expectancy "is measured in minutes," he added.
There are cases of people surviving such conditions, however. A study by the Federal Aviation Administration looked at 10 wheel-well passenger stowaways between 1947 and 1993, involving flights as high as 39,000 feet. Five people survived. The conditions put them in a virtual "hibernative" state, the report explained. Oh, and there's apparently video of the kid climbing out of main gear area.
Powdered Alcohol Is A Real Thing:
Sick of drinking your liquor? Good news for you. Palcohol has been approved. Gawker is reporting that over the weekend, the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau approved the powdered alcohol and now, it's expected to hit shelves in the fall.
As you might imagine, the site is trying to work the angle of how easy the stuff would be to hide. It's since been edited, but the original website suggested bringing Palcohol into concerts or sporting events and making your own mix drinks for "a fraction of the cost." The site also suggests trying to sprinkle the powder Faceon food but warns, if you want the full affect, put it on top "AFTER a dish is cooked as the alcohol will burn off if you cook with it...and that defeats the whole purpose."
And yes, people have tried to snort the stuff. No, they don't recommend it. "Yes, you can snort it. And you'll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose," the site reads. "Good idea? No. It will mess you up. Use Palcohol responsibly."

Chicago could be the funniest city in the nation.

Study Says You Have 12 Minutes To Impress Your Date
We only have 12 minutes to impress someone on a first date, a new study reveals. Research released today shows it takes just a few minutes for us to decide whether we are keen on someone new.
Singletons will be immediately judged on their smile (64-percent), whether they make eye contact (58-percent) and their tone of voice (25-percent).
The new research, carried out by AXA, quizzed 2,000 people about their first dates experiences.
Body odor was found to be the most off-putting characteristic for six in ten hopeful singles (59-percent), followed by bad breath (53-percent).
Meanwhile, four in ten of us (38-percent) get turned off if their date starts swearing.
And it appears we start judging people even before we meet face-to-face. One in 20 singles (six percent) research their date online by viewing their social media pages on Facebook and Twitter.
Worst Forst Date Ever?
A New Jersey man may face charges after police say he stole a woman’s dog and flat-screen TV on their first date.
The two met online and went out for the first time Thursday night, according to the New York Post.
The woman told police that she became preoccupied in another room of her home and briefly left the man alone. When she returned, her Yorkshire Terrier named violet and her flat-screen TV were gone, according to police.
Oddly enough, the man apparently returned both items, leaving them in her front yard at around 3 a.m. Saturday.
Police told the Post they know the man’s identity and may press charges.
