Pre-Pandemic Events That Felt Like an Eternity Ago

By |2022-03-08T08:36:44-06:00March 8th, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

The pandemic has dragged on for so long, stuff that happened right BEFORE it seems like it occurred in another lifetime. Here are some examples from a list that Buzzfeed put together: Jennifer Lopez and Shakira did the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Donald Trump was acquitted on both articles of impeachment. This was his SECOND impeachment. "Tiger King" came out. Technically, this was right AS the pandemic was taking off. It debuted on March 20th of 2020. "The Invisible Man", "Sonic the Hedgehog", and "Bad Boys for Life" were in theaters. We kinda thought Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were gonna [...]

Vegas anybody?

By |2022-02-23T08:26:02-06:00February 23rd, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

According to statistician Jeffrey Rosenthal, the casino game you should absolutely steer clear of is the Video Lottery Terminal.  Those are the ones with Keno or slot games.  They give a 5% to 15% edge TO the house. You want better odds?  Play Craps, and you'll have a 49.29% chance of winning.  By the way, both of these are "pure chance games" meaning it's all luck.  They don't have a skill element like Blackjack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QW3KRaz4aI4&t=375s

A College Kid Forgot to Close Her Window During the Blizzard

By |2022-02-02T08:15:01-06:00February 2nd, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

You can learn a lot in college, but maybe Common Sense 101 needs to be an option:  A student at Boston College is blowing up on TikTok after she decided to go sleep at her boyfriend's place during the blizzard . . . and forgot to close her bedroom WINDOW first. Her roommates texted her on Saturday morning and said the place was freezing for some reason.  They felt a draft but couldn't get into her room, because the door was locked.  So she told them where a spare key was.  And when they walked in, it was a winter wonderland. There was [...]

McDonald’s Is Adding Four Fan-Inspired “Menu Hack” Items

By |2022-01-27T08:06:38-06:00January 27th, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

I'll give McDonald's partial credit for this.  It's cool they're doing it, but you still have to build the sandwich yourself.  So all they're really doing is letting you ask for these by name . . . Next week, McDonald's is adding four MENU HACK items for a limited time.  Meaning food mash-ups that are popular on social media, and a few are fairly epic.  But everything comes separately, so you have to assemble them yourself.  Starting on Monday, you'll be able to get these four Menu Hack items for a limited time . . . The Hash Brown McMuffin.  It's [...]

Lego Has Given an Animal . . . an Anus

By |2022-01-10T08:12:43-06:00January 10th, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

Lego can afford to play it fast and loose with details due to their blockish nature. So, you wouldn't expect Lego ANIMALS to be "anatomically correct." But that's changing as their sets become increasingly intricate.   They recently introduced a "Majestic Tiger," which has impressive detail . . . including Lego's first ANUS. Yes, the tiger has a small, circular pink piece that fits underneath its tail. The specific part is also used for flowers, among other things.   It's kinda cool . . . kinda unnecessary . . . and kinda hilarious at the same time, considering there are kids [...]

Hockey Fan Saves Life!

By |2022-01-03T06:15:57-06:00January 3rd, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

Back in October, a hockey fan and med student in Seattle named Nadia Popovici went to see the Seattle Kraken play the Vancouver Canucks . . . and ended up saving a guy's life. She was sitting behind the Canucks' bench when she noticed a weird MOLE on the assistant equipment manager's neck.  So she typed a message to him on her phone . . . showed it to him through the glass . . . and he took it seriously. His name is Brian Hamilton, and it turned out she was right.  It was melanoma, but he had it removed, and he's [...]

A Grinch Actor Trashed Their Whole House

By |2021-12-15T08:16:09-06:00December 15th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

Imagine setting your whole house up for the holidays, and this happens:  A mom in Northern Ireland named Laura Magill thought it would be fun if an actor dressed as the Grinch came to her house and messed with her kids. The ad for it said that for just over $100, the Grinch would have a pillow fight with them . . . toilet paper their Christmas tree . . . and pose for pictures. But things took a turn when he started a food fight with her son.  So all of the expensive cookies, candy, and other treats she put [...]

Simple Pleasures Rich People Don’t Get to Have

By |2021-12-14T07:26:37-06:00December 14th, 2021|Categories: Blogs|

Sure, Elon Musk has billions of dollars and rockets and stuff.  But you can't BUY any of the things on this list. Someone asked people to name simple, everyday pleasures in life that super-rich people don't get to experience.  Here are some of the best answers we've seen . . . The excitement that comes with finding a $10 bill in an old coat. Not having to worry someone's just dating you for your money. The thrill of finding a favorite product on sale. The intense family bonds that come with not having money.  That "you and me against the world" vibe. The [...]
