Catch The Walking Dead?

As a fan of The Walking Dead, I’m familiar with the gory antics of “walkers.”  But last night’s episode was the most gruesome I can recall, especially the revolving door of death scene in which Noah is literally torn apart just inches away from his friend Glenn.  After the show, I watched Talking Dead and guests Steven Yeun (Glenn), Tyler James Williams (Noah) and Josh McDermitt (Eugene) all said the revolving door scene was very hard to watch.

By the way, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick is not just a talented host, comedian and blogger.  He’s also a great bowler due to the fact he’s the son of PBA Hall of Famer Billy Hardwick.

Here comes powdered alcohol

The federal government has approved a powdered version of alcohol that can be added to water or a mixer.  It’s called Palcohol and comes in one ounce packets which equals one shot of alcohol.  Packets of vodka and rum will be the first varieties available.  Creator Mark Phillips hopes to have it for sale sometime this summer.

Opponents of Palcohol fear it’s too easy for minors to sneak alcohol anywhere they wish.  Even though the federal government has ok’d Palcohol, individual states can ban it.

She laughs at my jokes

Men don’t want funny women… only ones who will laugh at their jokes.  The University of Miami asked 80 men and women how important it was to have a partner who could make them laugh.  The results showed men don’t want to date witty women, but instead find ones who laugh at their jokes.  However, women want a man who can make them laugh and smile.  Women see the ability to make someone laugh as a sign of intelligence.
