It’s almost Halloween! Get in the mood with superstitions from around the world.
There are so many laws that are still on the books, but never enforced. Some of the MANY we touched on are: Blue Laws, Washington State concealed weapons over six feet are a no-no, windows in bathrooms, all computers banned in Florida, no dancing to the Star Spangled Banner, California lifeguard Frisbee approval. How about protection for Big Foot? Thank you Washington. There’s more, let’s talk about them.
All those things that you simply MUST have! We might start out with the Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL), but then it’s a hard right down memory lane. Tape clubs, cinnamon toothpicks, Han Solo season, Pinterest, cupcakes, Cabbage Patch Kids…so many things that we can remember wanting. And if you’re like Amy, you stopped by Starbucks before this episode and PSL’d while doing the show.
Pavlov’s dogs, Enclothed Cognition, and that phantom buzzing phone in your pocket feeling are just a taste of what we cover in this episode on your brain. Take the Stroop Test and learn all about selective attention. Did you see that gorilla run through the basketball game?!?! Neither did we. Amy will tell you why.
We’re going back to the slightly shorter episode format, but don’t think we haven’t packed it with all the fun facts. Let’s adventure into Extreme Ironing, Fire Hula Hooping, and super daring hobbies for the retired set that are far too cool for us to try. Also Competitive Dog Grooming and Rube Goldberging…you know you need a new hobby. Check ’em out.
