Show Notes for Thursday, December 10, 2020


Dear John,

My nephew wants a certain video game for Christmas, but his parents have already said no. It's not a bad game, they're just struggling financially. I've been blessed and want to help but my brother told me he didn't want me to buy the game. Growing up we never had much. I remember many years where our family went without much. I thought it would be nice to get his family some things they want. I think I'm going to send them some money anonymously so they can get whatever they want. Do you think that's OK?

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Finding the best nap length can be the trickiest part of a midday snooze. Is 20 minutes OK? What about 30, or even 60? Researchers say in order to make waking easy and prevent your afternoon siesta from affecting your bedtime, your power naps should be short and sweet. The experts say short power naps can give your brain a boost, allowing you to better problem solve, concentrate, and make decisions. Once you hit the 30 minute mark, you run the risk of experiencing sleep inertia. This is when you awake feeling groggy and exhausted, despite having slept.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

As the year comes to an end, the hype for the release of the new PS5 was at an all time high. Unfortunately for many, scalpers and hoarders quickly bought stocks to sell at a higher price. Meanwhile, for some who already had their hands on the new console, another storm was brewing: their wives. A man from Taiwan tried to trick his wife into thinking that the PS5 was an air purifier for their home. His little ruse worked at first. However, there was an incident where a rat died inside their home. Sadly, the PS5 has no air purifying features and did nothing to mask the smell of the rat. According to a news report out of Taiwan the man got an earful from his wife and he had to sell it.
