Morning Brew w/ Andy Mattson

 

Random Blogging For Tuesday January 21st.

Welcome to Tuesday.  Whew, gotta tell ya i'm sore from head to toe today, but happy to be here.  I was in a car accident on Saturday, it was pretty crazy, but I walked away without a scratch.  Just feel like I got beat up.  We were extremely lucky.  I had a few guardian angels working overtime last weekend.  Thanks.  We are doing ok, and will be fine, just need to get a new car.  :)  Here's what you missed on today's show.

 

The Morning Brain Buster:

Q.   People who have to do this for work, have a much higher risk for divorce. What?

A.   Drive over 45 minutes to work everyday!

 

Bonehead Of The Day:

A married Florida cop was having his mistress call 911 so he could hook up with her while he was on duty.

The decorated 4 year veteran met the woman while he was on a police call and they started to exchange emails and texts. They eventually set up a rendezvous at a hotel.

But since he was working and had to be held accountable for his whereabouts, he told her to call 911 from the room and then hang up.

He then showed up alone while on duty to "investigate" and they had sex.

The woman ended requesting a ride with him and it was approved. They ended up driving to an empty substation where she performed oral sex on him while on duty.

The woman's husband found out about the affair and told the police what was going on. Internal affairs investigated and the cop was forced to resign.

Toronto's Crack Smoking Mayor More Popular Than Obama

President Barack Obama has lower poll ratings that Toronto's crack-smoking Mayor Rob Ford.

Ford's ratings have jumped back up to 47 percent, rebounding from 42 percent when he admitted in November that he had smoked crack while in office.

Obama's polling average is now 42.5 percent approval, according to an index maintained by Real Clear Politics.

Polling experts doubt he can drag it up above 50 percent before his second term ends, in part because the U.S. economy is still sputtering and roughly 20 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed.

The 85 Wealthiest People Have As Much Money As Poorest Half

The 85 wealthiest people in the world have as much money as the poorest half of the entire global population, which sits at about 3.5 billion people.

According to a new (Oxfam) report, the richest 1% of the global population has 65 times more money than the poorest 50%....that's about $110 trillion.

That's 46% of the world's total wealth.

The report blames the growing gap on a "power grab" where the rich use their influence to get politicians to promote policies to make them even more money.

140 Surgeries In 15 Years.. To Look Like Ken..  This Guy Thinks It's A Good Idea.


A guy named Justin Jedlica has had 140 plastic surgery procedures in the last 15 years.

The 33-year-old has 12 implants in his torso that mimic arm and chest muscles. He also has 15 silicone injections in his buttocks and 11 in his face.

The procedures earned him the nickname "the Human Ken Doll" and he made his first TV appearance in 2012 on a 20/20 special called "Extreme Plastic Surgery."

It wasn't his intention to look like a doll, but he ran with it.

Today, Jedlica makes regular appearances on talk shows and reality TV programs, where he's regarded as everything from a "junkie" on "My Strange Addiction" to a plastic surgery expert.

His habit has cost him $165,000 so far.


Jedlica says his fixation on surgical body modification comes from a place of artistic creativity, not mental illness.

He said: "I don't have body dysmorphic disorder. True body dysmorphic disorder sufferers are people who have an unrealistic vision of what they look like. When they look in the mirror, they don't see what other people see. And I think my vision is very clear."

Guy Going 365 Days Without Shoes

A Louisville, Kentucky man is going barefoot for 365 days to raise awareness for people who don't have them.

Millions of "kids are dying and having their limbs cut off just because they don't have anything to protect their feet."

Local residents have been very supportive: he is still allowed to work at his job at a hair salon, and he's been able to step into local restaurants bare-footed too.

The day he started (12/4) was the day before it snowed, and he thought for sure he wouldn't make it.

But 48 days later, he's collecting money for his cause and says it's "one of the best things" he's ever done.

You can track his progress and donate to the cause at noshoesforayear.com

Pick Your Poison.. Is Alchohol Worse Than Pot?

Health experts are split on what's more dangerous-- marijuana or alcohol.

In a recent magazine interview President Obama said marijuana is unhealthy but it's no dangerous than alcohol.

Some experts agree with him but some disagree. One health expert who disagrees says that there is a lot of risk that comes with pot and comparing the two is absurd.

Another doctor who agrees with Obama says the number of patients he's admitted to the hospital with complications from marijuana use is zero, while the number he's admitted due to alcohol use is profound.

Oh God No..  Meggins Is A Thing.. Who Thinks This Is Stylish?


Leggings for men -- meggings-- are about to go mainstream.

Two men from Chicago launched Meggings Man Clothing in December and say their bold tight-fitting pants for men have been a hit with customers.

Unlike traditional leggings which are worn by women, meggings were designed with the male body in mind with wide waste bands.

There are currently 14 different styles in the collection including metallic finishes and camouflage print priced from $29.95.

3 Tricks That Will Keep You Happily Married.. Allegedly

1. Get tipsy together--Scientists say that getting tipsy together could be the glue to keeping your marriage intact. According to a new study, couples that enjoy getting drunk together have a better chance of surviving. But they should be on the same page when it comes to how much and how often. Someone who likes getting drunk every night is doomed.

2. Sexual evolution--Decades in the missionary position just won't do. As your relationship grows and changes, so must the sex. Break out of the mold to keep things interesting for the both of you.

3. Hire a cleaning lady--Most wives' biggest complaint: how little their husbands do around the house. It's a problem that starts way before kids come into the picture. It's like getting married means no more chores, even if they used to clean when they were single. A cleaning lady can save you. If you can swing the service once a week, that's awesome, but even having someone come in once or twice a month will be a big help.
