The Loon Morning Show Rundown: Helium Burps [AUDIO]
As heard on the January 6th show:
1. Naked Woman Stuck in Chimney
A woman who was trying to get into her ex-boyfriend's home, but found the door locked, wound up stuck inside a chimney... in the nude. Not sure why she thought her birthday suit was the best attire for the climb down, but even the absence of clothing didn't help her squeeze into the 12 inch by 12 inch opening. It took a team of 23 firefighters two hours to free her.
2. The Smart Belt
Is one of your resolutions to get in shape? How about getting a belt that tells you when you're getting fat? The Smart Belt adjusts itself as your waistline changes and uses a smartphone app to tell you things like how many steps you're taking and will send you notifications when you're gaining and losing inches.
3. A Law Against Hoodies?
Oklahoma state Sen. Don Barrington is making a resolution to be more progressive in 2015, which is why he's trying to bring back a law from the 1920's which would make it illegal to wear a hood, mask, or covering in public. If passed, offenders could get slapped with a $500 fine. Obviously, this idea is NOT going over well with residents.
4. SnoopSnitch Phone App
Have you ever wondered who's snooping on the info on your phone? A new app let's you know when surveillance attempts are being made on your smartphone. SnoopSnitch is only available for certain Android operating systems for now, but hopefully they'll be able to apply it to more devices in the future.
5. Helium Burps Are the New Video Trend
It's exactly what it sounds like. Sucking helium and then attempting to burp with the helium effects. Funny thing is, it's harder than it sounds to pull off. Between Jesse's low tone belches and Lucy's stage fright, things got interesting when the camera's started rolling.
6. The Year of Standing Desks
Did you know that people sitting has become such a problem that researchers are calling it the new smoking. They're calling 2015 the year of the standing desk and encouraging people to stand for at least 30 minutes a day when you would otherwise be sitting.
7. Introducing Three New Girl Scout Cookies
Who doesn't love to just house Girl Scout Cookies? Now there will be three new flavors to shovel into your face! An oatmeal cookie called Rah-Rah Raisins, a gluten-free peanut butter oatmeal cookie called Trios, and another gluten-free cookie that's butter flavored with toffee pieces called Toffee-tastics. All on par with the latest food trends.
