Best way to hold a hamburger

Monday, Feb, 10 2014

(One of Life's Mysteries Solved)... The best way to hold a HAMBURGER!!... The secret is in using your pinkies.

Scientists used 3D scanning to find the best way to hold a hamburger. Three experts in mechanics, engineering and dentistry spent four months coming up with the perfect solution to eating a burger so stuff doesn’t fall out. (it took them FOUR MONTHS?)

CONCLUSION:
Using thumbs and the pinkies to hold the bottom-- while using the middle three fingers on each hand to hold the top-- would avoid spillage.

This divides the burger into equal parts meaning that it can be held evenly.

PLEASANT DAYS

Monday, Feb, 10 2014

Which cities in the US have the worst weather and which have the best?

The one city that outranks them all with the most pleasant days out of the year is Los Angeles. The most unpleasant city is McAllister - found in Montana. McAllister only has 14 pleasant days a year while LA has 183.

Some guy named Kelly Norton compiled data from the last 23-years of National Oceanic Atmospheric Association records and an interactive map  allows viewers to type in their own zip-code to check how pleasant their neighborhood actually is.

Mr. Norton defines “pleasant” as a place where the mean temperature is between 55* and 75&*. The maximum daily temperature doesn't go above 85* or dip below 45*. He also considered precipitation. Days with greater than a hundredth of an inch of precipitation or greater than a 10th of an inche of snow were not viewed as pleasant.

According to his map, Waterloo has 66 days a year that are “pleasant.” (the most are in June and August)
Cedar Rapids has 62. (the most are in May, June, August, September)

MONDAY ROCK REPORT!

Monday, Feb, 10 2014

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett plans on writing a second book as a follow-up to his 2012 book, “Too Much Horror Business-The Kirk Hammett Collection.” In his upcoming book, he plans on focusing on pop culture from the 1960’s and 1970’s.

It will feature a lot of hot rods, surfing, monster and horror culture. It will also include toy collecting, artwork and posters. Hammett says he'll start working on the book when the band is about two-thirds finished with their next album and looks to release it at the end of 2015 or beginning of 2016.

His first book was 228 pages of his love for the horror genre.
