Okaloosa County deputies report that a Crestview, Florida, man was arrested for allegedly setting his truck on fire Friday night. 28-year-old Kevin Robert Murphy is charged with arson, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, also known as the “OCSO,” says they responded to reports of a loud boom and found a Chevy Silverado truck fully engulfed in flames. When talking with Murphy, OCSO says he told deputies he poured gas onto and into the truck and set it on fire. He added he started the fire “to give us [sheriff’s office] something to do” and to give himself an extra Christmas present. While being arrested, deputies found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in Murphy's possession. No injuries were reported, but a nearby vehicle and building suffered minor damage. The Fire Department quickly arrived and put out the fire. (https://bit.ly/2L14s39)

Most corporate offices don’t condone drinking on the job, but a case may be made for reconsideration. As it turns out, a little bit of alcohol really can support creative thinking. Researchers (University of Illinois at Chicago) found that a certain level of inebriation can help get the creative juices flowing. In the study, participants whose blood alcohol level (BAC) was slightly under .08 performed better in a creative task than did their sober counterparts. The intoxicated group, however, underperformed when they were assigned memory tasks. The researchers determined that a person’s “creative peak” is reached when the person hits a BAC of .075 percent.
A study (Cornell University) found that most of us think we’re better than we really are and that most of us are fooling ourselves. The study found that while many of us overestimate our own good qualities, we’re pretty good at judging the lack of those qualities in others. Students were asked to predict whether they would buy a flower for a charity cause. Then they were asked to predict if others would. 83 percent said they would buy a flower, but only half did. Students predicted that only 56 percent of classmates would make the donation and that number was right on the money. Researchers expected people to view their peers cynically, but instead we tend to over-inflate our own egos, thinking we’re better than we really are.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by TimeForRehab.com
Korea routinely and adamantly claims that it has zero cases of
COVID-19, but the country has nevertheless made a habit of
circulating fringe or unsupported scientific theories about how the
virus can spread. In recent months, the country has warned that the
virus can be passed on through migratory birds, polluted dust blown
over from China, cigarette smoking and more. Now, North Korea’s
foreign ministry has told people to avoid playing with snow for fear
of contracting COVID-19.
