If you think Obama is taking away your
FREEDOM . . . check this out. Here's a list of nine random, everyday
things that are ILLEGAL overseas, but legal here.Tell us what you think on our Facebook page.
1. Baby walkers. You know . . . those plastic things with handles
that let your baby walk around with some support. They've been banned
in Canada for almost a decade because they can delay a child's
development. You can get fined up to $100,000 just for having one . . .
or SIX MONTHS in jail.
2. Ketchup in school cafeterias. In France, they OUTLAWED ketchup at
school. Apparently they wanted to keep their national cuisine from
getting CONTAMINATED. Ironically, they still allow ketchup on French
fries. But that's it.
3. Mullets. It's against the law to wear a mullet in Iran. Men there
are also forbidden to wear ponytails or to spike their hair, and you
can get FINED if you disobey. Which actually seems pretty tame for
4. Plastic bags. Of all places, Bangladesh was the first country to
ban plastic bags, back in 2002. San Francisco and Los Angeles have
banned them too.
5. Spanking. Sweden disallowed spanking back in 1979 . . . for kids,
anyway. 23 other countries have banned it since then. In the U.S., all
parents still have the right . . . and 19 states still allow your
SCHOOL to do it for you.
6. BHA and BHT preservatives. You'll see them listed on just about
all the food you buy that comes in a package. But they cause cancer,
and they're banned in more than 160 countries.
7. Chewing gum. In Singapore, all gum was outlawed in 1992. In 2004
they finally allowed people to chew sugar-free gum . . . with a DOCTOR'S
8. Weird baby names. In Denmark, the government keeps a list of 7,000
approved names. If you don't find the right one on the list, you have
to get permission from a church. New Zealand, Sweden, and other places
keep a list of banned names too.
9. Tobacco. In the Asian country of Bhutan, they don't allow people
to grow tobacco, or to produce or sell tobacco products. But somehow
SMOKING is still legal.

If you know how your brain perceives time, it's actually pretty easy to make time SEEM like it's passing more slowly. If you're one of those people who feels like the years are slipping away from you, try some of these tips from the Buffer blog.
1. Keep learning new things. Your brain perceives time according to
how much information it has to process. If the brain is working hard,
time passes more slowly. But time really flies when you're on
So an easy way to make your days pass more slowly is to keep learning.
The brain has to work harder to process unfamiliar experiences. Expose
yourself to new things as often as possible. You might discover some
new hobbies as an added bonus.
2. Visit new places. When you go to a place you've never been,
EVERYTHING is a new experience. All the sights, sounds, and smells have
to be organized by the brain. You know that feeling of time standing
still? That's what's going on.
3. Meet new people. Meeting someone new is also a great brain
workout. You have to learn to read new body language, understand their
ways of talking, and respond to their expectations. If there are social
pressures, that's a whole other set of challenges.
4. Try new activities. This usually involves ALL of the above, so
it's pretty easy to put your brain on the brink of overload.
5. Be spontaneous. Make an effort to surprise your brain, with things you haven't prepared for. It forces your brain to react and adapt, and that should help time move more slowly for you.

Here's a subject so racy I can't begin to discuss it on the air. But I'm sure it's something that many of us are going to be wagging our tounges about around the water cooler.....sorry.
Years of smoking and drinking did NOT cause MICHAEL DOUGLAS'S
throat cancer. It was something ELSE he put in his mouth that did it.
Namely . . . a woman's NETHER REGIONS.
That's right . . . Michael believes that being a giver of oral pleasure
led to his cancer . . . which was at stage FOUR when it was diagnosed a
few years ago.
He says, quote, "Without wanting to get too specific, this particular
cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from [performing
oral sex on a woman]. I did worry if the stress caused by my son's
incarceration didn't help trigger it.
"But yeah, it's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer." (HPV stands for "human papillomavirus".)
But Michael adds, quote, "And if you have [HPV], [performing oral sex on a woman] is also the best cure for it."
Michael underwent eight weeks of therapy and radiation, and he's been
cancer-free for more than two years. He says that 95% of the time, this
type of cancer DOESN'T come back.
We should probably note that Michael did NOT say he got HPV from performing on his wife, CATHERINE ZETA-JONES. And Michael was a recognized sex addict in his day.
Since he's all better, perhaps he would even suggest that Catherine has been part of the CURE?
Unfortunately, the idea that MOUTH MAGIC is the solution as well as the cause might not pass the "Human Centipede" test of being 100% medically accurate.
Head and neck surgeon Mahesh Kumar says, quote, "Maybe he thinks that
more exposure to the virus will boost his immune system. But medically,
that just doesn't make sense."
Don't just take my word for it though. Heres an article about it from ABC NEWS.
Oh and BTW, Mr. Douglas; I think I speak for all of us when I say we're glad you're OK!

So, this week we learned that NASA is now leasing out one of its launch pads in Florida. For more on our space agency's struggles . . . here are the Top Signs NASA is in Financial Trouble.
-It's a government agency under President Obama.
-Its next mission is to send an astronaut to Cash-for-Gold.
-In order to raise money through product placement, the next astronaut
to visit the moon will be required to take one small step for Nissan,
one giant leap for Diet Dr. Pepper.
-The stars of "Operation Repo" just drove off with a Mercury space capsule.
-There's not even enough money in the budget for another FAKE moon landing.
-The study of alien life forms is just going to have to stop at Amanda Bynes.
-During tours of Mission Control, kids can maneuver the Mars Rover for 50 cents a minute.
-Astronaut training is now just the Tilt-A-Whirl at Six Flags.
-Coming soon: The "accidental" zero gravity astronaut sex tape.
-To save time, countdowns now only start at 6.
-They hired their last team of shuttle technicians from the parking lot of Home Depot.
-The next three moon missions will be produced by Tyler Perry.
-They want to go to the moon again, but only to get away from their creditors.
