Bring on the Snow-Beer!

By |2020-01-16T07:39:02-06:00January 16th, 2020|

You probably need or want a reason to root for MORE snow than usual this winter, but here you go!! Busch Beer just announced a new program where they'll be giving FREE BEER to people in seven states based on the amount of snow they get this winter. They're tracking the total inches of snow through the end of March in seven cities: Des Moines, Iowa . . . Grand Rapids, Michigan . . . Minneapolis, Minnesota . . . Fargo, North Dakota . . . Omaha, Nebraska . . . Buffalo, New York . . . and Green Bay, Wisconsin. [...]

STOP MESSING WITH PIZZA

By |2020-01-15T07:43:33-06:00January 15th, 2020|

THEY DID IT AGAIN! Why are people so motivated to mess with pizza. Obviously pineapple on pizza has gotten a lot of attention over the past few years, both positive and negative. This might mean more weird fruits on pizzas are coming. Here's the latest. A picture is going viral from a pizzeria in Denmark that puts KIWI on its pizza. EEEWWWWWWWW! The kiwi slices are circular, so they almost look like green pepperoni. Almost. - Stunt Monkey

When Are We the Most Miserable?

By |2020-01-14T06:58:42-06:00January 14th, 2020|

We all feel this way at some point, but now someone went and did a study to confirm how miserable we sometimes are. It's a new study out of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, they looked at data from almost eight million Americans over the past three decades to figure out when people are the most MISERABLE. The answer is . . . when you're 47 years old. Our happiness as adults goes in a U-shaped curve. We're really happy when we're 18, then we start getting more and more miserable over our 20s, 30s, and 40s. It bottoms out when [...]

Things I’ve Notcied

The Vikings are who we thought they were. Take back the power and don't let them break your heart any longer. It takes a special kind of stupid to comment negatively on people's random social media posts. Getting a laser shot into your eyes can either blind you or dramatically improve your sight. Snow once again hinders everyone's ability to drive... but why? IKEA furniture is just adult legos. Why is it the older we get the faster time flies. No Matter What!   And that’s Things I’ve Noticed this week. – Stunt Monkey

How Long Will You Stay on Hold?

By |2020-01-13T07:44:00-06:00January 13th, 2020|

So I have a very angry story* about this, but first, you need to know more than one in five Americans will stay on hold with customer service INDEFINITELY. Who takes these polls? Did they call and put people on hold? 31% will only wait five minutes, 34% will wait up to 15 minutes before they hang up, and 22% said they'll stay on the phone "as long as [they] need to." The remaining 13% said they REFUSE to wait on hold. How about that music, one in seven people said they wish the HOLD MUSIC wasn't a thing. 15% of [...]

We’re “Too Tired” to Work Out

By |2020-01-08T07:51:32-06:00January 8th, 2020|

Time to use this information to your advantage, a new survey in England found our energy level peaks at 10:28 A.M. each day, but then it plummets and bottoms out around 2:43 P.M. Knowing when the average person feels like they have the most energy sounds like the right time to plan your most productive part of the day. Harness that energy towards the right projects. The survey then went on and had people list things they feel like they're just "too tired" to do on any given day. And I guess Brits hate exercise like we do. Because it made [...]

Always Trust Your Gut

By |2020-01-07T09:25:23-06:00January 7th, 2020|

Who needs to read this... all of us? It's time to stop listening to your brain and start trusting a body part that's much lower on your body. WHOA! TOO LOW. I'm talking about your gut. A new study out of England found we're better off just trusting our first instinct -  act first, ask questions later. Because when we second-guess ourselves, we wind up making worse decisions. The researchers say it's because second-guessing leads to overanalyzing and that just confuses our brain and stops us from thinking clearly. #WinThisDay!   - Stunt Monkey

Top Signs Your a Workaholic

By |2020-01-07T09:15:53-06:00January 7th, 2020|

Ugh! People are feeling bad for workaholics, it sounds like a joke but it's hard to break any addiction including workahol. Honestly, this is something I joked about having for a long time, but in the last year and a half, I have realized it may actually be a real problem. I find it hard to take time off work to relax, when I do take vacay - most of it was used to work other gigs. When I do have downtime, I fill it by immediately picking up projects, my house is pert-near spotless! A new survey was released and [...]

Things I’ve Noticed

The gym isn't as full as I thought it would be in the first 6 days of 2020, what did everyone's resolutions end up being? If people who snore spend up to 1/3 of their lives annoying somebody else... that's while sleeping! And we know how people feel about me while awake, things are not looking good for me. Looking a thousand years into the future, they will find out that we dropped a ball from a pole to celebrate a New Year and think we're all stupid. People like to send photos of me to me... at events, like hockey games, [...]
