MattyV & Dan the Man decided that the new year should not include resolutions but rather self-improvement goals. “New Year’s Resolution” is too closely thought of as failure.

Matty found this article on steps to take in order to make your own self-improvement goals a reality.

If you’re looking to control your money in the new year, then Dave Ramsey comes highly recommended. Lots of free information, the books are great too (get them from your local library to save some money).

Self-improvement books abound, Dan recommends “Rhinoceros Success“. It’s a short book with a lot of good information (and the forward is by Dave Ramsey!)…

Dan says that Mucky Pup is hilarious, here is the “Hippies Hate Water” video that wasn’t shown on MTV…

We rounded out the show by talking about teens & e-cigarettes…

Look for more stuff in the new year!

This week Matty found a bunch of articles having to do with the holidays. The gang took some time to start a list of some of their favorite holiday tunes, check out THIS LINK for access to the playlist on Spotify!

 

Some of the worst toys have been identified by the World Against Toys Causing Harm (W.A.T.C.H.) consumer group. At lot of these toys seem like dollar store fodder than actual commercial/retail items. A “catapencil”? Really?

Do you have people in your life you hate that have children? Are you required to give them a gift? Then check out some of these toys that would be perfect torture and put you on their “naughty list” for sure!

Not sure if people don’t have enough to do, this Hanukkah wrapping paper was pulled because someone noticed the design included swastikas…

Matty found this list of the 17 “Most American” things you can get at Walmart. USA USA!

If you’re going to give money to charities this year, be wary of who you give your money to. This charity has been found to be the absolute worst to give money to according to the article.

Yahoo has a great article of the 15 best beers to drink this winter. I’m gonna need a drink come Christmas day!

First it was Surge, now French Toast Crunch is making a comeback! The power of the internet, behold!

Matty found this article fascinating about the auction sale of 282 Vietnam War-era Zippo lighters that were personalized for soldiers. Zippos played an important part in a soldier’s life and to see the different personalizations gives a little insight into each soldier’s life…

Hooray for Detroit! A local fast food chain (if you consider 2 restaurants a chain) is paying its workers $15/hr and is actually seeing a profit. But the workers are trained as jack-of-all-trades and not just burger flippers or counter jockeys…

A heated argument during a Monopoly game ended up with an arrest. I’ve been pissed at losing before, but not to the point of coming to blows.

Matty found this article of the 33 things people from Michigan have to explain to out-of-towners. Some don’t make sense…

Did you know that there is information you need to know about marijuana edibles? This article goes through a lot that you should take into consideration if you want to venture into the realm of “eating your way high”…

Do you believe in “editing” nature? According to this article, we have the ability to “de-extinct” animal species via technology spoken of in the movie “Jurassic Park“…

The price of everything seems to be going up even more each year. This is the current cost of all the items found on the “12 Days of Christmas” song. And here is the rendition of the song by Straight No Chaser

Dan the Man & Matty had talked a few weeks ago about people that are able to craft items, this is a super-cool video of a blacksmith making the Fierce Deity sword from “The Legend of Zelda“…

Matty found a CGI rendering of what is touted to be the world’s tallest rollercoaster in 2017. It will reside in Orlando Florida. Two -words = F*ck That!

The military has them, the general public has them, Amazon is looking at using them. It was only a matter of time before someone used drone technology for perverted purposes. I give you scenes of the first “drone-shot porn” (NSFW)…

Matty is getting a watch from his in-laws for Christmas (a SWEET watch)… It’s not a watch like this, though. Facinating…

Matty was browsing the bookshelves at the local thrift store and found a gem of a book from 1995! Back in the 1990’s someone had the bright idea to create a set of books that were like “Cliff’s Notes” for different products or life concepts. 2 factions vied for marketshare, the “For Dummies” and the “Complete Idiot’s Guide“. The covered banal topics like software or gardening or even podcasting. Matty found what has to be one of the holy grails of guides – “Sex for Dummies” written by none other than Dr. Ruth Westheimer! The gang will have fun reading some of the passages from the book in another podcast so stay tuned!

Operation Homefront is the Dollar Tree charity Matty was thinking about. Next time you’re there, donate a toy when you check out!

Forget pig methane, the UK has developed a bus that is powered by human shit! Yep, but don’t funnel the contents of your trousers into your tank just yet. One person’s year’s worth of poo will only get you 37 miles down the road, with a full tank taking 5 people’s annual turds. Dan mentioned about the bus that dumped waste on tourists that happened to be owned by one Dave Matthews…

Watch your e-cigs, they may contain a virus! Some e-cigs from China have been found to have malware hardwired into the cigarettes.

One thing we didn’t talk about is a really cool “Choose Your Adventure” YouTube video, watch the first video and choose the next one to continue the story!
