Getting over the Hump!

EVERY guy knows that awful, gut-wrenching feeling of liking a girl and finding out their feelings are unrequited. (Just ask Flynn...ha ha!)  Nothing worse than being in The Friend Zone! Here’s a perfect example from a recent sporting event…and it ain’t pretty:

 

A new wedding trend!

Everybody loves food trucks and now more brides and grooms are using them to serve food at their wedding receptions. For couples who are looking to a fun, relaxed alternative to a formal, sit-down meal, food trucks are a great choice.

"It's fun for guests to walk up and order," explains Mei Li, owner of a Boston truck called Mei Mei. "It's a new experience for a lot of people, and adds a level of excitement and options that a traditional caterer can't provide."

There are some limitations to having your wedding reception catered by a food truck though. They can’t serve everyone at once and they usually don’t come with linens and servers. But guests can grab a drink and mingle while they wait for their turn and the happy couple can always hire waitstaff to clear and clean up.

Plus, not having to agonize over seating arrangements takes a lot of stress out of the event planning. And if the bride and groom prefer a traditional seated dinner, but still want the fun of a food truck, they can always hire one to do desserts instead.

Some really funny doggie fails!

A little extra exercise won't hurt you....

  • A Maine marathon accidentally sent some runners down a dead end 
  • The runners added a half-mile to their race and now their times might not be good enough to qualify for the next Boston Marathon 
  • Marathon officials will offer a refund to those runners who made the extra trip and thus won't qualify

For some runners, the Maine Coast Marathon was bit longer than expected. A group of participants was accidentally sent down an dead end road and had to loop back around, tacking on a half-mile to their route. 

An this ended up being more than just an annoyance. The extra distance means some of their times most likely won't qualify the runners for the next Boston Marathon.

Since not all the runners had to go the extra half-mile, the times can't simply be adjusted. Instead, those who don't qualify for Boston Marathon because of the mistake will get a refund.

A man has grown a chili pepper that could potentially cause a type of anaphylactic shock that would burn the airways and close them up

  • A chef has created the record-breaking Dragon's Breath chili
  • It's spice level could cause some to go into anaphylactic shock and suffocate 
  • It's being used in the medical field for those allergic to anesthetic 

Mike Smith is a chef from Wales and he's created a chili pepper so hot, it could actually kill you. To give you a sense, Dragon's Breath measures more than 2.48m on the Scoville scale (which ranks the heat in peppers). That's 23-thousand times spicier then paprika. 

Smith himself explains the pepper could cause someone to go into anaphylactic shock, causing their airways to burn and close up. Yikes. 

So if you can't eat them, what are we supposed to do with Dragon's Breath? Use them in medicine. According to Smith, “It was developed because a lot of people are allergic to anesthetic, and this can be applied to the skin because it is so strong it numbs it.”

What's more, the oils in the pepper are much cheaper than anesthetic, so Dragon's Breath could be used in developing countries.
