Things I Learned This Week …

I figure any week where you haven’t learned something is truly a week wasted. Fortunately, this week has been a treasure trove of acquired wisdom — which I am duty-bound, of course, share with you.

So here’s this week’s lessons:

 ♦ Why men die younger

 ♦ Why women should always shop alone.

 ♦ Why displaying police sketches on TV can be … disturbing

 ♦ Why I may consider taking up archery (or at least take some lessons):

Replay video | Share video | Watch more videos

  1. I’m still trying to catch my breath from that last one, but I sure enjoyed the jokes! And I don’t think I’ll be taking my husband shopping with me!

    I wonder what that last suicide threat is called: lateral bungee-jumping? And am I the only one who noticed the guys were all on the ground on in the…whatever that was they were driving…and the girl was “cannonized”?

  2. I can answer one of your 2 a.m. questions:

    Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

    Because home-made bread doesn’t toast near so easily. If you toast home-made bread at the “burn to a horrible crisp” setting, it’s usually only very lightly toasted and needs a second round in the toaster. Generally speaking, the more sustenance the bread has, the harder it is to get it toasted.

    So it’s a confusing setting to those that eat pseudo-bread, but the rest of us are very appreciative for that degree of toasting, and often wish there was an even higher setting.

    Now you can sleep easy. ; )
