In commercials we often hear "consult your doctor." Well, apparently a lot of people consult Suzanne Somers. For some reason our brains are wired to believe health advice from movie stars and pop singers . . . which makes no sense at all. This week's News For Nerds looks into this weird phenomenon.
Plus, I hate to scare you just before the holidays, but there's a monster volcano pulsating beneath Yellowstone National Park, and when it blows, it will make for a very, very bad day in Denver. (PS, it's just about due for an eruption.)
It's not all gloom and doom, though. You'll also be treated this week to a gorgeous Celestial Holiday Wreath, a sweet gift courtesy of the Hubble Space Telescope and a particular star.
Today was a spectacular day due to the fact that Le Peep is in our bellies. Don't forget Le Peep for your catering needs this holiday season. They have a variety of breakfast and lunch items available for your party dining pleasure. And if you have a delicious person to shop for this Christmas, get a Le Peep gift book. They are only $25 and you get over $150 worth of savings.
You know they did it to get worldwide publicity...and it worked (look, WE'RE posting it). But that doesn't take away from how extremely cool this is. The lesson: The next time someone asks what you want for Christmas, think big. Watch the amazing video about what magical thing an airline did for passengers this holiday season.
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.
And you might've heard about sleep apnea, but it's possible that you suffer from Email Apnea. In fact, I think it just happened to me while I was typing this . . .
Plus, high school students build an actual satellite, and a new animated video explains the mystery behind "silent but deadly" flatulence. (See, not everything on News For Nerds is highbrow.)
