A man we love, and hate, Greg Behrendt stopped by the studio today. We love him because he is so dang cool, hilarious, clever, and handsome in scarfs. And we hate him because he is so dang cool, hilarious, clever, and handsome in scarfs. Be sure to make plans this weekend to see him at Comedy Works Landmark Village, you'll be glad you did!
A lot of weight gain in this country is attributed to something called "stress eating." So what if we had a device that could measure that - and help to prevent it? Well, maybe we do. Ladies, it could be your bra. I've got details in this week's News For Nerds.
Also, wanna know how to make yourself look more attractive in a photograph? I can tell you if you click the link.
And, as a bonus, I have a pee chart. Yes, a pee chart. You'll want to see it, because your pee is a window into your health. Oh, yes it is.
The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror

Christopher Moore books are not for everyone, that's for sure. Some people are offended by his take on certain subjects, and some just don't share his particular sense of humor.
His work resonates with me, though. I list his most famous title, Lamb, in my top five of favorite books ever. One of the characters from that book, the archangel Raziel, makes a return visit as the titular character in this month's book club selection.
I spent back-to-back weeks with two luxury compact sport sedans from Lexus, starting with the IS350, followed by its feisty little brother, the IS250. Both are available with rear-wheel drive, but my test models came with all-wheel-drive.
I knew that the brands had been redesigned for 2014, but I didn't appreciate those minor changes until I got my first glimpses. Both cars are beautiful to look at, although I'll give more of a nod to the 250; its lines are of the eye-catching variety, with a swept-back look that's appealing to (ahem) seasoned guys like me.
But make no mistake: Lexus has always - and probably WILL always - put the emphasis on the luxury end of the "luxury sport sedan" equation. Yes, the cars have some oomph, but they don't beat out some of their comparable rivals in the sports-handling department. For comparison sake, I would recommend looking at the vaunted BMW 3-series (the reigning champ in most enthusiasts' minds), as well as the Audi A4 and the Mercedes C-Class.Don't get me wrong, the IS250 and IS350 are terrific cars, with plenty of thrills to offer.
For this year's redesign, the engineers worked a bit on the ride (which is improved) and the interior space (which has expanded). Powered by 2.5-liter V6, the 250 will leave the starting blocks with a little over 200 horses, while the bigger sib 350 sports a 3.5-liter V6 with 306 horsepower. Both cars offer smooth and powerful acceleration and fine handling. Personally (and perhaps it was because of the overall feel in the cockpit), I enjoyed the ride of the IS250 a little more.
We've always thought that a quiet, relaxing weekend was the best thing for us. Well, not so. In fact, the more you can do on a weekend, the better. At least as far as your brain (and your attitude) is concerned. I have details this week in the link.

A new toxicology report ordered by the family of “Clueless” actress Brittany Murphy says rat poison may have been the cause of her death. Murphy’s mother found her dead at home on December 20, 2009 and the Los Angeles Coroner ruled her death was due to pneumonia and anemia. Strangely, Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack died from the same causes a five months later. But an independent report ordered by her father Angelo Bertolotti found that the actress did not die of natural causes. The report even suggests that Brittany and Simon could have been murdered by a third party. Following years of litigation Bertolotti was able to obtain samples of her hair, blood and tissue for testing. The Examiner reports that “based on the symptoms” exhibited by Brittany and Simon before their deaths, he ordered testing for heavy metals and toxins. According to the report the Los Angeles Coroner did not test for heavy metals. The web site quotes the lab report, “Ten (10) of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher that the WHO [The World Health Organization] high levels … Heavy metals are found in many rat poisons and insecticides. At the time of her death, Brittany displayed the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning including: headaches, dizziness, abdominal cramps, coughing, sweating, disorientation, wheezing, congestion and pneumonia.
It wasn’t all that long ago that hybrids were new and different, which often brought on a polarizing effect. Early believers heard snickers - or worse - about them, and for a while there was an “us against them” feel about the whole segment.
That seems to be rapidly disappearing. Hybrids not only have gained a toehold in the market, they’re picking up traction in upscale models. But the successful early players continue to shine, including Toyota, whose Prius line acted as the advance foot soldier in the assault on market share.
Benefitting from those early forays into the technology is the Camry, an already hugely popular vehicle - in fact, second only to Ford’s F-150 in 2012 sales. The new Camry hybrid doesn’t change much after last year’s redesign, but it didn’t need to. Instead, Toyota added a few convenience features.
