  • Short guys have it good!!

    SHORTER MEN MAY LIVE LONGER ! It's nice to be tall, right? Sure, it's great... unless you want to become an astronaut, or a horse jockey, or an old man. A new study found an inverse link between height and longevity, finding that shorter men are more likely to live longer. The study concerned a group 8,006 Japanese-American men in Oahu, Hawaii, who scientists have kept tabs on for more than 40 years. They found that shorter men were more likely to have a protective version of a certain gene (FOXO3) which previous research has linked to a long life. As is often the case, though, the study raises more questions than answers. -nice to see they'll have the last laugh, even though they'll have to stand on their tippy-toes to point their finger in somebody's face,. ~Rowdy

  • You want to get married where???

  • Whoa! These burgers make me really hungry...

    Cheech and Chong approved!!! Mickey D's ALLEGEDLY SERVED BURGER WITH MARIJUANA! In the normal course of human events, one usually partakes of marijuana before getting the munchies and stuffing one’s face with greasy fast food. But someone at an Iowa McDonald’s recently struck upon the brilliant idea of combining the two. That’s according to a pair of customers -- a pregnant woman and her fiancé -- who hit a drive-thru in the city of Ottumwa to buy cheeseburgers. They’ve alleged that in addition to the usual pickles, onions, and condiments, the meat patties were garnished with weed. -that is what I call a "really" Happy Meal. ~Rowdy

  • Poor Judgement Can Kill You!!


  • Would you want to go back to high school?

  • A VERY odd benefit to vegetables!

    LONELY TEENAGERS BEFRIEND CABBAGES Lonely teenagers in China who feel life is pointless and who struggle to find friends have taken to befriending companions that make no demands: cabbages. And the sight of them out 'walking' the cabbages is the latest way of meeting someone new -- as cabbage walkers use their weird pets as a way to start up conversations with each other. A psychiatrist said, "It's not about finding a boyfriend or girlfriend, just about having someone to talk to and share things with, a statement of youth isolated in the big cities. The idea is simple -- you feel as lonely and as simple as a cabbage, so you begin to act like one and befriend one. And in that acceptance comes change." ~ if I could only train two of them to talk on the radio!~Rowdy

  • The Good Side of Being Rude!?!


  • This is NOT a joke!!


  • Be careful who you ask to the prom!!

    Really? ~Rowdy A Pennsylvania teenager who received an in-school suspension a few weeks ago for asking Miss America Nina Davuluri to prom during an assembly had Davuluri come to his aid with a request for leniency. On the Miss America Organization’s website, Davuluri posted on Saturday: “On Thursday, a student invited me to prom and gave me a flower while I was giving a presentation in York, Pennsylvania. I was flattered by the gesture although I am unfortunately unable to attend due to my travel schedule. I later learned of the disciplinary action taken and reached out to the school in hopes that they will reconsider their decision. Meeting and interacting with students across the country has been an important and rewarding part of my year as Miss America. I always encourage students to follow their dreams through education, and I’m inspired daily by the enthusiasm and aspirations of the bright young adults I have the pleasure of meeting through my travels.”

  • You found WHAT near the Easter Eggs?

    You think your Easter was strange? A Tennessee woman says she made a grisly discovery while hunting for Easter eggs in her back yard with her 3-year-old son: a dead body. Tara Hanouskova said she had noticed a foul smell but didn't find the source until Wednesday, when she noticed tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck while hunting for eggs with her son. Her son didn't notice the man's body, and Knoxville police investigated discreetly. Hanouskova said she doesn't know how the man got there. *There is NO truth to the rumor that he was the winner of last years' Easter hide and seek competition. ~Rowdy

  • No One Knew She Was Pregnant!!!

    WOMAN'S STOMACH ACHE REALLY A 9-POUND BABY! Jennifer Scollin hadn't been feeling well lately and chalked it up to a stomach bug that was going around. But when the woman woke up Saturday morning with bad stomach pains, she called her boyfriend to come home — and minutes after he did, her water broke. They called 911, and she ended up delivering their second child in an ambulance parked in her driveway. Scollin says she never suspected she might be pregnant. It was only in the last few days that she started to feel poorly. And since the 9-pound, 3-ounce Cole Michael Thomas Dillman is Scollin's second child, she's well versed in what pregnancy (usually) feels like. Mom and baby are doing fine and went home from the hospital Tuesday. -Totally understandable...I think I had a similar feeling the first time I tried one of those new breakfast waffles. ~Rowdy

  • Just when you thought she was done...

    She's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Rachel Canning, the New Jersey teen who gained notoriety for suing her parents for college cash after moving out, scored a $56,000 scholarship with Western New England University. Canning, called “spoiled” by a case investigator, rescinded her demands for $654-a-week in child support and college tuition from her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, three weeks ago. Living with her best friend for nearly four months, the 18-year-old cheerleader moved back home to her parents on March 11. A representative for Western New England confirmed that Canning was indeed accepted into the private school located in Massachusetts. -One wonders what she will major in? Oh, where I could go with that answer...~Rowdy

  • Grab your tissue!!

    Note from Rowdy: I posted this on the KVOO Facebook page last Friday-and it spread like wildfire. Grab a box of Kleenex, and get ready to thank God, as you put your own life into perspective.

  • Would YOU keep the money?


  • Another GOOD reason to exercise!

    Mothers might not feel like they have any extra seconds in the day to exercise, but a new study finds that being a more active mom will make your young children more active too. A study from the University of Cambridge published in the journal Pediatrics tracked 554 mothers and their four-year-olds using accelerometers. The data showed that when mothers boosted their physical activity, children's moderate to vigorous activity increased 10 percent. The study isn't perfect. It's not clear whether active moms inspired their children to be more active or if already active children were making their mothers run around after them.

  • Was that Matthew McConaughey-hey-hey???

    Long before he was a big Oscar winner, and prior to his first real break in Dazed and Confused, Matthew McConaughey starred on the small screen -- in a TRISHA YEARWOOD video. Matthew played a sexy hunk in Trisha's 1992 video for her hit song Walk Away Joe. Look it up on YouTube! Trisha says Matthew was cast from local talent in Austin, Texas, where the footage was shot. Her performance with Don Henley was shot in Nashville, so she never met Matthew.

  • She's Got Legs!!!!

    CARRIE UNDERWOOD has some of the best legs in country music -- and it's because Carrie works hard to keep them looking so good. She doesn't do all the hard work on her own. According to Glamour, Carrie calls in her favorite trainer, Erin Oprea, to help whip her legs and thighs into shape. The two have been working out together for a long time. Want to get Carrie-like legs? You’ll have to start with everyone’s not-so-favorite workouts -- squats and lunges. Carrie does multiple types of squats and lunges, some with additional weights. *I’m heading to Planet Fitness right after the show…~Rowdy
