    That's Where I Put That DART!

    A British man who lost sight of a toy dart that he'd shot when he was a young boy finally discovered the rubber suction tip -- when he suddenly sneezed it out. Last month, 51-year-old Steve Easton had a sneezing fit, and when it was all done, he noticed an unusual solid object in one of his nostrils. When he pulled it out, he realized that it looked like the tip of a rubber dart. He called his mother to tell her what he'd found, and she remembered taking him to the hospital when he was seven because she thought he may have swallowed a dart. Nothing was found at that time, and it appears the dart remained in his head for more than 40 years until his recent sneezing spell. Easton says it never bothered him and he doesn't feel any different now that it's out. Still no comment from the dart itself. ~Rowdy

    Talk About Early Arrival!

    Talk about inflight turbulence … A 23-year-old Canadian woman who didn’t know she was pregnant gave birth on an Air Canada flight Ada Guan and her boyfriend Wesley Branch were flying from Calgary to Tokyo, Japan, on Sunday (Mother's Day, no less) when Ada went into labor 36,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. "She told me, 'Something fell out of me,'" Branch said. "I lifted up her pants and I saw a head and then I heard, 'Wah.' I thought, 'Oh my god, I think we have a kid.'" Their daughter Chloe was delivered with the help of three doctors who happened to be on the flight. No word on if the airline will bill them for a third passenger fee. ~Rowdy

    My Name is Rowdy, and I'm a PHONE-a-Holic!

    A lot of us are “addicted” to our phones, but for some people, the addiction is so overwhelming they have to go to rehab. For real. There’s a recovery center in Tennessee called The Ranch that offers a special treatment program for people addicted to their phones. Experts compare phone obsession to compulsive shopping and other behavioral addictions. And if you think this kind of addiction is rare, think again. A study out of Baylor University found that female college students spend an average of 10 hours a day on their phones, mainly checking social media and texting. And 60% of people surveyed admitted they felt addicted to their devices. If I am unexplainably gone in a few weeks, you'll know why. ~Rowdy

    Work for a WOMAN?

    According to a new study, female bosses are better at motivating their employees than men. The Gallup study, called State of the American Manager: Analytics and Advice for Leaders, found that 33% of employees are engaged and enthusiastic in their jobs when a woman is in charge, compared to 25% when a man is the boss. And consider this: According to Gallup, companies with engaged, enthusiastic workers outperform the competition by 147% in earnings. They also have lower employee turnover and absenteeism. The study also found that women were better at encouraging their employees’ development and progress, and women bosses provided more positive, constructive feedback than their male counterparts. Hopefully this study will make more companies promote women to executive positions. Right now, only one-third of Americans have a female boss. I have always been happiest that way myself! ~Rowdy

    THIS is "Johnny Caddilac"

    All men know that it’s a bummer if you can’t make it home for Mother’s Day. For sure, your mom deserves to have you there, but life is complicated and you might have a reason to not visit on her special day. But, if you have $25,000, Groupon will help out by sending a perfect child – named Johnny Cadillac – in your place who will spend the entire day with her and do all the things she has always lovingly nagged you to do. The experience, called “A Mother’s Love is Priceless,” involves Johnny eating five full servings of vegetables (at once), rinsing dishes before placing them in the dishwasher, wearing pants, and even being nice to your sister. Mom also gets a $5,000 shopping spree at her favorite local stores, a one-day stretch limo rental, house-cleaning services, and a catered, in-home family dinner for up to six people, including centerpieces, candelabras, linens, and food. *Now, where is my AMEX? ~Rowdy

    Perhaps, he just did not hear them calling his name...

    Police are looking for a man who was involved in a bar fight and then left something pretty valuable behind -- his ear. Two men were arrested for brawling outside a bar, but there was a third man involved who apparently had his ear bitten off in the melee. The floppy appendage was spotted on the sidewalk with a diamond-stud earring still attached to it. No one seems to know who he is or where he went. Police say they haven't received any calls or reports about a man missing an ear, but warn that he should seek medical attention. The Huffington Post has posted a picture of the ear, but you're probably better off skipping it. ~Rowdy

    I Am A Fan!

    Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks proved that you can play for the Jacksonville Jaguars and still be a winner. Last week, Marks went to a Florida hospital with a bouquet of flowers to ask 18-year-old cancer patient Khameyea Jennings to the prom. Jennings has spent the last two years battling liver cancer and was looking forward to a night out of the hospital. She gladly accepted his invitation and even told him what he should wear. This past Saturday, Marks showed up at her house wearing the white and gold suit she had asked him to wear and the two drove off to the prom in his black Lamborghini. Marks said all he wanted was to "make sure she continues to smile and make sure she has a good time." He then pushed his date in a wheelchair into the dance and the couple received a cheers and an ovation. Afterwards, Marks tweeted, "Continue to fight and show others the strength and faith you have, Khameyea." How cool is that? ~Rowdy
