News For Nerds: How Urine Gets Us To Mars


There's no way around it, so I'm just gonna say it: If you wanna go to Mars, you're gonna have to drink your own pee. And the pee of your fellow astronauts.

Don't be grossed out; it's actually something that could help millions of people on our home planet, too. I've got the details for you this week.

Plus, if you think that airplane food tastes bad, there's a reason. And I'll tell you why.

I've also included a story this week that explains why you get grouchy with the love of your life when you're hungry. It's called getting "hangry." (The story involves voodoo dolls, so you gotta love it.)

Oh, and video of a jet-powered snowboard. C'mon, who doesn't wanna do that?!

Just follow this digital wormhole, and you'll soon be gettin' your nerd on with News For Nerds. Enjoy.

News For Nerds: The Power of Repetition


We like familiar stuff, which explains why we listen to the same music over and over again. Finally a scientist has tried to figure that out. I've got the story.

Plus, until I injured a foot I was running about 20-24 miles per week. Now a new study says that running that much could lead to an early death. What?? I'm sure this will be controversial, but you'll wanna read it.

And for some reason parents have been giving their new baby boys names that end in a particular letter, way more than other letters. Curious?

Those cool stories, and more (including a guy who discovered the worst place on your body to receive a bee sting) when you skip down this digital path right here. C'mon, it's time to get your nerd on!

Review: 2014 Subaru Impreza


Colorado has always had something of a love affair going with their Subarus, but for years it relied heavily on the Outback. A co-worker once told me that it could almost be named the Official Car of Colorado.

But times are changing. Folks in the Rocky Mountains are finding that they can get the same reliability - and, importantly, the same all-wheel-drive functionality - from an Outback sibling. In this case, the Impreza.

Look, you have to keep in mind that not everyone can drop fifty grand on an SUV. Subaru has raised their hand, saying "Um, we've got what you need for less than HALF that." And they do.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

Reviewed by Jane




The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is not very useful in Africa. The book is an epic story of the family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

News For Nerds: Our Universe May Be One of Many


Imagine a sea of bubbles, and each one contains an entire universe. Some people think this is the coolest idea ever; other people say it gives them a headache. Either way, you gotta check it out. It's in the link below.

Also, I've got the best (and worst) science jokes, courtesy of our nerdy friends at Popular Science. Plus, opening a wine bottle with a shoe (video), voting on the fashion design of the next wave of spacesuits (photos), and a fantastic video explanation of why Thor's hammer would destroy the entire planet if the muscular dude ever dropped it. It's one of my favorite videos of the month.

It's all waiting for you to enjoy and to share when you follow this easy digital path. Click away and get your nerd on!

News For Nerds: Does Sleep Loss Cause Brain Damage?


Got bags under your eyes? Yawning throughout the day? Maybe not getting enough sleep? Well . . . YOU'RE GONNA DIE!!

That's what my doctor said to me. And to make it worse, there's new research that shows what your lack of sleep is doing to your brain . . . and it's not good. I've got details in the link down below.

It's not all bad news this week, though. I'm a fanatic about dark chocolate, and it turns out that your gut is, too. There are good microbes in your stomach that turn dark chocolate into anti-inflammatories, which ultimately is good for your heart (and other parts). Check out that story in the link below.

Plus, I have a somewhat-creepy story about how Siri is a lightweight compared to the computer assistance we're about to get. In fact, computers will soon know what you need BEFORE you ask for it. There's also a segment about how a particular new craze could lead more teenagers to smoking. Sigh.

All of these stories are awaiting you in the digital wonderland known as News For Nerds, which you can find right here. C'mon, it's time to get your nerd on.

Review: Chrysler 300C AWD


The car market seems to go through stages where big is in, then big is out, then it’s in again. Gas hits $4.25 a gallon and everyone scrambles back to the small vehicles and hybrids.

Lately the manufacturers have been sprucing up their larger models, and the public has responded. One of the hits has been the Chrysler 300 - which I jokingly refer to as a gangster car, just because of the “I’ll kick your butt” feel it gives off.

But really, it’s a sweetheart. Here’s what I discovered after tooling around for almost a week in the 300C...
