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?
This is WAY cool! Special discounted tickets to the Avalanche, with proceeds benefitting The Big Brain Club.
But there's more! The DU Physics Department will be there with cool demonstrations, and the Avs' ice guru will talk about how to maintain an NHL-quality ice rink, and answer your questions about the Zamboni, etc.
Ladies, how well do you know your own body? Specifically, how much do you know about your reproductive abilities? A new study shows that a significant number of women either don't know important details, or they believe myths. Wanna test your knowledge? It's in the link below.
Also, as soon as you fall in love your food - and your water - will taste sweeter. Turns out that our emotions really do affect our senses. (I think we always suspected it, but now science backs us up.)
And wait until you see The Beastie Bike. Have you got the guts to ride 60 miles per hour on a bike on your stomach, face down? Check out the story and picture. Plus, if you text while you walk you could fall over. Really. Or fall into the path of a car or train. Really.
These stories, and more (including a picture of the world's largest vinyl album) are waiting for you right here. You should promptly click on the link so you can get your nerd on.

We're always on the hunt for things (or people) to make us happy, but there are certain interesting facts about happiness that might surprise you. And I just happen to have the list (if you follow the link below).
And have you ever wondered about being in an emergency where all you could drink was your pee? (If you haven't wondered about this, that's okay.) Well, a Mix 100 listener asked, and I've got the answer.
Plus, a story about how your long commute could cause a divorce, brilliant new pictures from Saturn and its moons, and your cool video of the week: Why birds fly in a V formation. You gotta see this.
Ever wonder if your music playlist at the gym is helping you? Well, it depends on the phat beatz, my friend. And yes, I am fly. Turns out that there is a "perfect playlist." Wanna see it? I can show you.
Also, when - please, when?! - will they ever listen and start school later in the morning? I'm telling you, our kids would perform better and learn more. Now there's yet another study backing me up. I've got details for you.
And there are some other pretty cool quickies in this week's NFN: A new type of glue that could save your life; the movie psychopaths who are the most realistic; and how sexual activity is really good for your brain. It's true.
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.
