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.

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.

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...

News For Nerds: The Nightmare Edition


We all dream - it's a weird, mostly misunderstood function of our minds - but men and women dream differently, especially when it comes to nightmares.

And there's more: How cat bites may be linked to depression, and one-fourth of Americans are clueless about the relationship between the Earth and the Sun.

News For Nerds: The Cupid Edition


You fall in love, you start acting weird. C'mon, you know it's true. Well, some researchers think it's because "falling in love" is not an emotion, but rather a drive. Your brain is being flooded with chemicals that make you . . . well, weird. I've got details in this week's News For Nerds.

Plus, are Olympic champions born, or created through training? Or both? Well, one country is betting on the "born" aspect, and you might be interested to learn how they're using genetic testing on ten-year-olds to find future champions.

Along with those stories you'll see that skim milk might NOT be better for you than whole milk, and this week's super-cool video comes from a place that's super-hot. You gotta see it.

Ready for summer yet? Tired of shivering in below-zero temps? Well, if you need to lose a few pounds, don't curse the winter, because it might be your best friend. I've got details in this week's News For Nerds.

What? He forgot your anniversary? Again?? Well, science says it's not his fault. Why? Because he's a man. Does this sound suspicious to you? Was the study done by men? Well, check it out for yourself and see what you think.

Also, your brain might be overwriting your memories, so be careful before you swear that you remember something...because your memory may have been altered.

And, exceptionally cool video from the guy who fell to the Earth from 23 miles up, along with an answer to this question: Is it better for a sick person to lick you or sneeze on you?

Just the sort of things we like to cover in News For Nerds, and you can find all of that right here when you click. Enjoy, and get your nerd on!
