The Morning Brain Buster:
Q: 54% of workers will spend time doing THIS at work right now.
A: Online shopping
Bonehead Of The Day:
A Wendy's employee was arrested in Georgia after serving a cheeseburger complete with a marijuana joint.
The 32-year-old worker was busted during her shift after a customer called 911, complaining she had found a half-smoked blunt in her cheeseburger.
The customer met with police at the Wendy's location where she ordered the burger, and cops claim the server admitted the blunt was hers.
She said she had been smoking pot on the job and "misplaced" the blunt inside the customer's burger ... right on top of the pickle.
The employee was arrested for possession of marijuana, and fired from Wendy's.
Bonehead Of The Day #2
A worker at a McDonald's in Hermitage, Tennessee accidentally gave customers a bag of money instead of their food.
The couple placed an order in the drive thru for breakfast and was given the money instead of their food.
The cash, which was about to be deposited at the bank, had been placed in a McDonald's bag, and was placed by the drive thru orders.
The employee found the mistake quickly and was able to catch up with the couple at their home just minutes away. They immediately returned all the money.
Woman Gives Birth At Denny's
A woman gave birth to a healthy baby boy inside a Denny's restaurant while visiting family in Arkansas.
One of the restaurant's employees said, "She was screaming and saying, 'I think the baby's coming! I think the baby's coming!'"
Employees say that the baby's delivery happened in an instant and her mother agrees saying, "Pretty much as soon as she walked in, she had a baby."
The woman was 2 weeks overdue when she decided to go and visit family for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Worlds Hardest Tongue Twister Is..
Try to say this one five times fast.
Researchers at MIT have found that the phrase "pad kid poured curd pulled cold" is one if the most impossible phrases to say without getting your tongue tied.
When a test group was asked to say "pad kid poured curd pulled cold" ten times fast, they couldn't make it very far without clamming up.
The phrase may not make a lot of sense but it took a meeting of the minds in San Francisco to come up with it.

Smart Watch Lets Parents Track Their Kids
The FiLIP is a watch made for kids ages 4 to 11 that has GPS built in and the ability to call up to 5 numbers that are stored on the watch.
Kids can call or text those 5 numbers and parents can track their kid through the GPS.
The watch also has the ability to set "safe zones" so parents can be alerted if their child travels outside of them.
The watch doesn't have Internet access - which keeps the wearer from getting on sites or services parents might be consider inappropriate.

Q. On Average people burn close to 1600 calories when doing this. What?
A. Christmas Shopping!
Bonehead Of The Day:
A fifth grader at an elementary school in Franklin, Tennessee got a hold of an erotic book by accident.
The book was by a British author known for his children's books, but also wrote adult fiction, and somehow one of his more erotic-themed books ended up on a fifth-grade classroom bookshelf.
It was among a box of books donated to the teacher, who in turn put the books on the shelves in his classroom without evaluating them individually.
The child's parents alerted the school's principal, and an investigation took place. The teacher was not terminated but was disciplined.

This Guy Had Such A Bad Experience With Customer Support he Recorded it & Posted Online
A man's problem with Amazon got much worse because of superbad customer service.
He was worried that someone named "Brittni" was "phishing" his email address. So he contacted Amazon's customer support team through its live chat function, to ask Amazon to block an email address that appeared to be associated with his real address. Unfortunately, the Amazon worker on the other end of the chat appeared to not understand English.
He spent nearly an hour with "Farah," trying to explain the problem. She suggested deleting his own email account, resetting his password, and offering to delete his account for him.
At one point "Farah" started addressing the guys as "maam," even though he is a man.

The Latest Trend In Baby Names.. Naming Your Kid After A Duck Dynasty Star
The newest up and coming baby names are those modeled after the stars of "Duck Dynasty".
Korie and Silas are some of the up-and-comers on BabyCenter's annual baby names survey, along with other pop-culture-inspired names like George (after the royal baby), Kanye (yes, seriously), and Marnie and Shoshanna (after the 'Girls' characters).

Here's the full list of the most popular names for boys and girls:

There are several apps that can predict what you want before you do, and Google leads the way.
Google's Now, along with other intelligent personal assistant apps including Osito and Grokr can predict what a user will do next before offering relevant help and information at each step without ever being asked.
The apps use an algorithm that combines with location data, taken from the phone or tablet's GPS unit, as well as posts on social networks, email information and more to make the predictions.
Grumpy Grub.. What Foods To Eat & Avoid When in A Bad Mood
Certain key nutrients in foods can have an impact on your moods.
Stressed out? Try having whole-wheat pasta, which contains magnesium and may reduce stress responses in your body. Pair the pasta with salmon, which provides omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown these fish fats may help decrease anxiety symptoms.
Round out your meal with a leafy green salad - like kale - or other fresh fruits and veggies that are full of vitamin C, which is linked to lower levels of stress markers.
Feeling Angry? Think green. Having a cup of tea to help relax is a common for many people, but next time, make sure its green tea. Green tea contains a mood-leveling antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate. A study found that people who got the nutrient rated their moods as calmer compared to those who took a placebo.
Feeling Down? Eat breakfast! You can reap the benefits of a morning meal without cooking, just reach for your cereal bowl. Having cereal at the start of the day may contribute to an overall feeling of better wellbeing, possibly because of cereal's role in promoting good digestion.
Feeling Negative? Gorging on a tub of ice cream, a bag of potato chips or a whole pan of fudge brownies will only make you feel guilty later. This only leads to more negative feelings and will make your mood worse. Put on your favorite upbeat song. It's a zero-calorie way to instantly lift your spirits.
Feeling Unmotivated? Sipping wine and vegging out in front of the TV may sound appealing when you're battling the blahs, but it's your worst enemy on days like these. Alcohol can lower your inhibitions and lead to overeating. Instead, take a quick stroll around the block. Getting a bit of exercise can actually boost your energy, which can help you tackle your to-do list.
Feeling Sluggish? If you're struggling to make it through an afternoon at the office, your blood sugar level may be the culprit. Keep your energy up by eating fiber- and protein-filled meals and snacks that enter the bloodstream slowly. They also do a better job of controlling your hunger. Stay clear of the sweets because they're full of refined carbs and sugar that will send your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride. Also, don't overlook the value of sleep. Sleep deprivation can mess with the hormones that control your appetite and promotes cravings for more carbs and sugar.
Would You Wear A Mood Sweater?
A new sweater, called the GER mood sweater, is a wearable piece of technology that lets friends know the wearer's mood.
The sweater has technology that looks for changes in the human skin to detect what mood the wearer might be in at any given moment.
The different emotional states range from "tranquil" (green) to "ecstatic, blissful" (yellow).
The technology works by attaching sensors to the wearer's hands that are then hooked up to the collar.
But beware, the mood sweater could also show feelings that you don't want to share yet- it will also glow crimson when you are "nervous" or "in love."
One hundred of the hi-tech custom-sized garments are expected to go on sale in March.
