1. Are men worse at handling the flu than women? In a new survey, BOTH genders say . . . YES. Only 41% of men and 16% of women say that men handle the flu the same as women.
2. Believe it or not, a new study has found that playing AIR GUITAR makes you better at real guitar, and singing in the shower makes you a better singer. In both cases, it's because you're not TRYING to improve, you're just getting into the music . . . and that's when breakthroughs are most likely to happen.
3. What's the most embarrassing thing you've done when you thought you were alone . . . but weren't? Two of the best ones we've heard are a guy who was pretending to be a Velociraptor from "Jurassic Park" in the hallways at work, before he realized there were security cameras . . . and a guy who got into a barking war with dogs in a parked car before he realized there were people in the backseat.
4. A new survey asked people to name things they'd tried once . . . then given up on forever. The top five most common answers were: Roller skating or Rollerblading, golf, karaoke, jogging, and camping.
