    The Greatest News Ever!

    Get ready for the best news ever ... Thanks to scientists at the University of Illinois, hangover free wine could be a reality in the near future. Did you hear that, ladies? Hangover free wine! Scientists have figured out a way to genetically alter the yeast used to ferment grapes into wine in such a way that it releases an enzyme that can prevent the dreaded wine headache. Not only that, but they will also be able to alter the yeast to boost all the benefits of reservatol, which is what gives red wine those awesome health benefits. Cheers to science! Now, let's go get healthy! ~Rowdy

    I Could Have Told You That

    According to a new study, there are too many studies being conducted. Seriously. For real. Researchers found that all the studies being done – and all the media coverage of these studies – are making it hard for researchers to focus. It seems researchers are struggling to keep things straight and to remember which studies are actually relevant. The paper, from researchers in Finland and California, explained that scholars are suffering from "attention decay." "The exponential growth in the number of scientific papers makes it increasingly difficult for researchers to keep track of all the publications relevant to their work," the paper explained.

    Is This The Worst Idea Ever?

    Facebook’s word domination continues … Now, you’ll be able to send and receive money via Facebook messenger. According to the company, the new feature would work similar to PayPal, Venmo and Snapcash. Users will have to add a Visa or MasterCard debit card to their account in order to send and receive money. The feature will be rolling out in the next few months. *If there is an upside to all of this, is that it might be the most convenient way for that Nigerian Price to finally get you that 15 million he promised... ~Rowdy

    So long, Gary(s)

    THE NAME “GARY” IS GOING EXTINCT! According to Census Bureau statistics, the man’s name “Gary” is going extinct. The name has been plummeting in popularity since the early 1950s, when America saw nearly 39,000 baby Garys born. This is compared to 2013 with only 442 – the lowest since 1928. The name is now ranked number 578 in America. It’s the end of an era, so hats off to Gary Busey, Gary Sinise, Gary Oldman and my favorite, Gary The Snail. ~Rowdy

    Give Me All Your, uh, Forever Stamps-and thin Elvis if ya got 'em.

    A Pennsylvania man is behind bars after he approached a woman at a post office ATM and demanded money. However, his biggest crime is being a huge idiot, because it wasn't an ATM -- it was a stamp kiosk. He was, after all, in a post office. Police say Damian Vazquez threatened an elderly woman with a knife as she was buying stamps and told her to take out cash. She told him she didn't have anymore cash because she'd spent it all on the stamps she was buying. He then ran away after an employee notified police. Cops eventually tracked Vazquez down to a nearby dumpster where he was hiding. He was arrested and charged with robbery and theft. Time to chlorinate the gene pool. ~Rowdy

    Ladies, Have a Tattoo?

    DON"T SHOOT THE MESSENGER!~Rowdy ***WOMEN WITH TATS VIEWED AS PROMISCUOUS*** Tattoos are more common than ever, but apparently attitudes about them haven't changed as much as we think. A new survey found that women who have tattoos are viewed as more promiscuous than women without tats. A researcher at the University of Texas-San Antonio showed 211 participants four photos of the same woman. In one photo she had no tattoos, in another she had a skull and crossbones tattoo, in one a butterfly tattoo, and finally with a rose tattoo. Regardless of the tattoo, when she was pictured with ink participants immediately perceived her as "slutty." Head researcher Lisa Oakes said, "When she had a tattoo, she was rated as looking like she ... she might be more receptive to sex without a committed relationship. She looked like she had lower standards of partner selectivity, and she looked like she had a higher sex drive then the girl without the tattoo." Well, at least we have that going for us guys :) -ry

  • The Tang of Alcohol. Thumbs up or Thumbs Down?

    Forget The Flask in the Boot

    Have you heard of powdered alcohol? We've talked about it before. If not, you will – because the government has just approved the sale of “Palcohol,” and, according to the company, it will be available as early as this summer. Just mix some "Palcohol" with water or a mixer and boom! … instant cocktail. What could possibly go wrong? It will certainly *amp up* any tailgate party, or, in my case, make the opera more tolerable. Enjoy responsibly: if that is possible. ~Rowdy
