    It's Not Just For Kids Anymore

    Apparently, Pedialyte – the special electrolyte-infused drink for kids with the stomach flu, or even worse – has become a go-to hangover cure for adults. In fact, since 2012, adult use of the children's medicine has risen 60%. Pedialyte is packed with electrolytes and minerals used to treat dehydration, nausea, and headache – pretty much the exact symptoms of a hangover. ~With a 3 day weekend approaching, it might be worth grabbing a bottle or two: but, enjoy responsibly. ~Rowdy

  • Big plans?

    Memorial Day weekend is coming up. Are you planning anything? I am going to be relaxing all weekend long with my daughter. Most likely she will be kicking my butt on the PS4.

    Wednesday is THE Day!

    Why have a burger, hot dog and chips separately when you can have them together? Carls Jr. is introducing something called The Most American Thickburger. It’s a cheesburger, topped with a hot dog, which is split in half, and Lay's Kettle Cooked Potato Chips. You can get this burger monstrosity starting May 20th. It also comes with 64 grams of fat, 2,250 milligrams of sodium and 1,063 calories. But, it all evens out if you wash it down with a diet soda, right?~Rowdy

    Move Over Truck Nutz

    You know those large rubber de-facto testicles that hang off the backs of trucks, usually off of trailer hitches? Well, an inventor has developed a specially designed set of plastic clangers that hang off the back of your bicycle seat ... and glow in the dark. You get class, style AND safety. A KickStarter campaign for the “Bike Balls Bicycle Light” has been set up and has already raised thousands of dollars – because everybody knows a good idea when they see one. Now I know what I am getting Sunny for Christmas.~Rowdy

    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
