Morning Mix Show Notes 6/23
Real Product or Not, geese and gators collide in a terrifying tale of When Animals Attack and kids are brilliant.
Your Real Product or Not stuff: The Body Guard Crime Fighting Glove, Bed Bug Detective and the Motorized Body Board. (Scroll down for the correct answer.)
A retiree living in Woodbury got tired of his neighborhood always being in “fecal furor” thanks to the flocks of geese everywhere, so he decided he was going to outsmart the birds and hit the Internet. He found a fake alligator head and placed it in the pond near his apartment complex where the geese would congregate. Well, fortunately for him, geese are not the smartest animals on the planet (ever heard the term “bird brain?”) and don’t know that alligators don’t live here, but, the geese flew the coop and took their poop with them!
Kids are brilliant. They’re tiny little Freuds in light up tennis shoes. A study done at SUNY New Paltz confirms it. Kids whine because they know it annoys us and we will do anything to make it stop. Researchers used men and women of all ages, parents and non parents alike sat down to do math problems while noises like a table saw, crying babies, whining children, talking and complete silence played in the background. The results showed that universally, people did the worst when they had to listen to the whining. Subjects also were able to get through fewer math problems, so it’s true: Whining CRIPPLES our mental abilities.
