THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
Not sure if you can help, but I feel like a terrible mom right now. I spent several hours this weekend visiting with my son about how he's treated at school. He's quite a bit smaller than the rest of the kids in his class and he's super smart and quiet. I didn't think he was the most popular kid in school, but I had no idea what he was dealing with. He doesn't really complain about it, but I was prying this weekend because of a comment that was made. He talked to me for a few hours about all the mean things being said and done to him. I went through a range of emotions. First I was sad for him. Then I was angry at the bullies. Then I was angry at the school. When we were done talking my son said I should not worry about it. He was afraid it might be worse if I got involved. I've spent a few nights tossing and turning over what to do? Do I honor his wishes and stay out of it? Do I go to the school and say something? I don't remember reading about this in the brochure about being a mom!
Signed – Please help my kid

A new survey finds four in five of us think we take good care of our vehicles. The survey also finds one in three confess to driving with a check engine or maintenance light on. In fact, the average driver will keep going for nine days with a warning light on before taking their vehicle in for maintenance.
Hey guys, forget the chocolates or wine — if you’re looking for a romantic evening with your lady, fix her a glass of organic licorice tea. It turns out the scent of licorice drives women crazy. In fact, a study discovered that women who were around the smell of licorice were far more likely to be “in the mood” compared to women who were around the scent of men’s cologne.

A poll of 2,000 adults found 48 percent are influenced by their horoscope, with more than one in three even making life choices based on the ‘advice’. Aquarius is the most financially confident star sign with 42 percent feeling happy with their money managing skills, compared to just 25 percent of Libras. Virgos are most likely to meet the financial goals they set for themselves. Sagittarians feel most out of touch with their finances as they avoid looking at them, whereas Leos are the happiest about their financial situation.

Simon Leviev is looking to turn his “Tinder Swindler” fame into his big Hollywood break. He’s already signed with a talent manager, and wants to write a book, star on a dating show and host a dating podcast. Leviev is the subject of the new Netflix documentary in which women — and law enforcement — claim he flaunted a lavish lifestyle to women on Tinder, and once he got them hooked, he would convince them to “loan” him money. When they did, he’d ghost them and allegedly make off with their cash.

Scientists are developing a deeper understanding of what’s going on in our brains when sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll make us feel high. Neuroscientists published a study looking into exactly what’s going on when music hits you. The team (at McGill University) found that songs — even sad ones — can be pleasurable, releasing the same chemical (prolactin) that mothers produce during breastfeeding.
According to survey, more than half of workers said they experience internet frustration at least once a week. The survey found that a small percentage of people get physical when they have internet frustration, with the computer keyboard taking a few licks as these people let off some steam.

Some of the best foods are also the messiest. It’s almost impossible to devour a rack of ribs or a plate of wings without your face becoming a saucy, dripping mess. And your enjoyment of those foods would surely suffer if you ate them standing up in your shower. Also, it would be weird. However, if you have a really messy snack, one that can be consumed anywhere, why wouldn’t you eat it in the shower, because when you’re finished, you can just rinse right off? Almost makes too much sense not to, right? That’s what the people behind ShowerOrange are thinking. ShowerOrange is a subreddit on Reddit. Take an orange, eat it in the shower, then rinse when done. The concept arose out of a redditor’s response to a question about “something unconventional everyone should try.” One user said, “Tearing apart a cold fresh orange with your bare hands, just letting the juices run over your body. Not worrying if your going to get sticky, or anything. Just ripping it in half, and tearing into it with your teeth like a savage cannibal who hasn’t eaten in a week! Yes, this is the most carnal, ferocious, liberating thing a man can do.” https://www.reddit.com/r/ShowerOrange/
