Morning Mix Show Notes 7/25
Signs you're getting old, something your children may be using could be outlawed and the top money making movies.
Those crazy Brits from the UK's Daily Mail compiled a list of the Top 25 Signs You're Getting Old. A good chunk of survey respondents were in their 20's. I'm 32 and I found that there are eight signs I can identify with. How many are there for you? Falling asleep in front of the TV? Check. You're shocked by music videos these days and you think that there is pretty much nothing but garbage on TV? Check and check. You hate noisy restaurants, you take naps, and like getting carded for alcohol? Check, check and check. If none of these apply to you, congratulations!! Want to read more? Click HERE.
Here's why state governments have a hard time balancing the budget: It's because they're wasting time trying to pass stupid laws like this one. The State of New York is trying to BAN sippy-cups. You know, those nice SPILL PROOF cups that our children like to cart around that have cute little baby farm animals and Sesame Street characters on them? Yeah. Those. It's because the state legislature there thinks that the cups aren't good for their teeth, so they tried to outlaw them. Governor David Paterson vetoed the law, calling it, "ridiculous" but there's no word on if the law is going to be resurrected now that Andrew Cuomo is in office. Do you think that would ever happen here in Minnesota?
Captain America used his super powers to knock Harry Potter out of the top spot this weekend with an opening box office of over $65 million. Harry and the gang came in at number two with a take of just over $48 million for a total of $274 million in two weeks! The new JT/Mila Kunis flick Friends With Benefits came in at number three with $18.5 million. Transformers and Horrible Bosses rounded out the top five. Speaking of movies, you can take your kids to the movies this week for just $2 with the Kids Rule Summer Movie Series at the Parkwood 18. Check out the lineup by clicking HERE.
