SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

The 10 Most Ridiculous Scientific Studies (1-3)

Study shows beneficial effect of electric fans in extreme heat and humidity: You know that space heater you’ve been firing up every time the temperature climbs above 90º in August? Turns out you’ve been going about it all wrong. If you don’t have air conditioning, it seems that “fans” (which move “air” with the help of a cunning arrangement of rotating “blades”) can actually make you feel cooler. That, at least, was the news from a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) last February. Still to come: “Why Snow-Blower Use Declines in July.”

Study shows benefit of higher quality screening colonoscopies: Don’t you just hate those low-quality colonoscopies? You know, the ones when the doctor looks at your ears, checks your throat and pronounces, “That’s one fine colon you’ve got there, friend”? Now there’s a better way to go about things, according to JAMA, and that’s to be sure to have timely, high quality screenings instead. That may be bad news for “Colon Bob, Your $5 Colonoscopy Man,” but it’s good news for the rest of us.

Holding on to the blues: Depressed individuals may fail to decrease sadness: This one apparently came as news to the folks at the Association for Psychological Science and they’ve got the body of work to stand behind their findings. They’re surely the same scientists who discovered that short people often fail to increase inches, grouchy people don’t have enough niceness and folks who wear dentures have done a terrible job of hanging onto their teeth. The depression findings in particular are good news, pointing to exciting new treatments based on the venerable “Turn that frown upside down” method.

DID YA KNOW!? Brought to you by

Hackers used Russia’s Yandex Taxi ride-hailing app to order dozens of drivers to converge on Kutuzovsky Prospekt, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The act caused traffic on part of the already congested street to come to a standstill for about 40 minutes while Yandex worked to address the situation. “On the morning of September 1st, Yandex Taxi encountered an attempt by attackers to disrupt the service — several dozen drivers received bulk orders to the Fili district of Moscow,” a Yandex spokesperson told Motherboard. In a separate statement shared with Russia’s state-owned TASS news agency, Yandex said it reworked its routing algorithm following the attack to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. The event is one of the first known instances of hackers exploiting a ride-hailing app to create a traffic jam.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

If you’re a wanted man, it’s never a good idea to call the cops. Antoine Smith walked into the McDonalds in Kennesaw, Georgia and he and his fiance ordered themselves a meal. After the order took longer than he expected, our bozo started to get agitated. He got more worked up when he finally got his meal and, wouldn’t you know it, the fries were cold. When he couldn’t get a new order of fries, he did what any bozo with an outstanding felony murder warrant would do…he called the cops to complain. McDonalds management called the cops also, hoping to get him kicked out. The police arrived and quickly discovered he was a wanted man. After a brief chase he was arrested. Charged with the outstanding warrant, as well as obstruction or hindering law enforcement and criminal trespass. He also had a possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute tacked on as police found 31 grams of marijuana in his fiancée’s vehicle. Oh, and those fries in jail probably won’t be hot either.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

New Iberia, Louisiana drug dealer Dana Brock had delivered two pounds of marijuana to Akeem Wilson. Something went wrong and Mr. Wilson pulled a gun on Ms. Brock. So, if you are a bozo in this situation, what would you do? Call the cops, of course. The cops arrived and found two firearms and the pot in the apartment. However, further investigation revealed that our bozo had actually delivered the weed. You’re both busted! Charged with possession with intent to distribute and a felon in possession of a firearm.
