‘Viagra for Women’ Getting Closer, Currently in Trials

Mad scientists have been hard at work trying to develop a sex-drive-enhancement drug for women ever since those wily old coots emerged nearly 15 years ago with a little blue pill called Viagra. Interestingly enough, it appears as if science is no match for men dedicated to breeding a society full of hornier women, because those fiends have done it.

To Burn Off the Candy Corn, The Workout is HOW Long?

One of those evil yet delicious creations around the office this time of year is the candy corn/dry roasted peanut mixture. Oh my. Do you have it at your desk? Yum! Whoever started it was a borderline genius. It's sweet and salty. It's crunchy and chewy. It's got all the culinary opposites that your mouth tells you it needs and of course, does not. But I digress.

If you've popped some handfuls of candy corn today or this Halloween season, how long does it take to burn it off? We have some working out to do. I'll give you a hint. To burn off one handful of candy corn - just ONE handful - we've got to walk longer than 30 minutes. Oh dear.

Candy Corn Tops List Of Most Popular Halloween Candy

Today, October 30th, is National Candy Corn Day and it just happens to top the list of the most popular candy for Halloween. This little brightly colored candy was created in the 1880's by the Wunderlee Candy Company and each piece is approximately three times larger than an actual kernel of corn. It also happens to be one of my favorite Halloween candies, however, my wife found a variation of this popular candy in the store the other day that's become one of my faves, taffy candy corn.

Here’s How East Texans Can Help Those Affected By Hurricane Sandy

The weather in Tyler is just fine, so it's hard to imagine exactly how bad it is right now on the East Coast as Hurricane Sandy makes her way into New York and New Jersey. There are blizzard warnings in places like West Virginia, because Sandy is mixing with a winter storm there, and meteorologists say that's the first time in history a storm like that has been created - hurricane meets winter storm. And we look out the window and see nothing of the sort. Wanna help those who need it?

The American Red Cross says there are blood drives up and down the Eastern Seaboard that are being cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy, and they're advising those of us in areas that are unaffected by the hurricane to donate if we're able.

And Lo, God Told Fergie to Give Up Drugs, and He Saw That It Was Good

Step aside, televangelists. Black Eyed Peas' singer Fergie is here to tell you all about her chat with God. But don't worry, he only told her good things like to stop using drugs and that the FBI was not tracking her whereabouts.

Well. That doesn't sound schizophrenic at all.

Research Says Our ’5 Second Rule’ is Off

My co-workers here at the radio station are pretty good at obeying that unwritten "Five Second Rule."

You know, when you drop something on the floor, you have five seconds to pick it up and pop it in your mouth. After five seconds, apparently it becomes too dirty and germy for consumption.

Did you know this applies to countertops as well as the floor? Researchers say countertops, where we prepare food, are actually more germ-ridden than that dirty, icky floor. Oh dear, we're in big trouble.
