Show Notes for Friday, May 15, 2020

Today we visit with Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and 2012 presidential candidate. He is a Fox News contributor and the author of 38 books, including many New York Times bestsellers. His latest is a novel. c is a timely follow-up to their (with Pete Earley) bestseller Collusion, a riveting ripped-from-the-headlines political thriller featuring Valerie Mayberry and Brett Garrett. As this unlikely pair—a disgraced former FBI agent and a dishonorably discharged ex-Navy SEAL—team to avert a deadly crisis with Iran, they once again operate outside official channels, caught between competing world powers as they race to avoid both an international incident and certain danger to themselves.

You’re throwing a ball for a toddler to smack with a plastic bat. You toss it gently, slowly, to make it easier. He just can’t hit it. A study says that’s because you throw too slowly — and kids’ brains aren’t wired for slow motion. Researchers say slow balls actually appear stationary to a child. Add a little speed to the pitch and the child is able to judge its speed more accurately.

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

Every time you shuffle a deck of cards, you get a combination that's never existed. Your angsty teenage dreams of being the most original, unique person alive could actually come true! Grab a deck of cards and shuffle. Most likely, you will have created a combination of cards that had never existed yet until that moment. Any math experts out there know that this is because the probability comes out to 52 factorial or 52! (52 x 51 x 50 … x 2 x 1). The probability that two card shuffles are exactly the same is so small, it likely will never happen.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

This rather curious incident took place on March 25th but has only now been publicized in local media. Two images released by the Swedish customs agency show that the couple - a man and a woman - arrived into the country in a Hummer vehicle which bore a “Zombie Response Team” logo as well as the rather ominous warning that “infected people will be shot.” Also, in their possession was a large number of illegal weapons. Reporting varies slightly as to exactly how many weapons were seized, from sixteen to “over twenty.” What has been confirmed is that their arsenal included several crossbows, a taser or some other form of electric shock weapon, several firearms designed to fire teargas canisters, a knuckle iron, and at least one truncheon. The local prosecutor noted that they hadn't chosen the most inconspicuous of vehicles for smuggling weaponry, while the couple's defense attorney states that the couple had not known that the weapons could not be legally brought into the country.
