Evil laugh. Yeah. Spooky.

Sup? How ya DO-EN? Here's some shtuff.

JOHN MAYER is currently recovering from surgery on his vocal chords.

Last month, John revealed that he had a "granuloma"...or an inflamed mass of tissue in his throat, near his vocal chords.

In a new blog post, he says he's, "on complete vocal rest for a month or more." (For more, you can read John's blog at

NICKI MINAJ has all kinds of male suitors flaunting cash and jewelry in her face...but she says she isn't attracted to that.

She says, "I may be smiling in their face, but my antenna is up (wonder if THEIR antenna is up. HEY!!!)...when they're trying to show off their cash or their watch, it's an immediate turn-off.

"You can't run game on [me]. I'm always 10 steps ahead of you."

So what IS Nicki into? She explains, "I do like a dope nose that's straight on the side. And I like full lips. I've never kissed someone who didn't have full lips."

Excuse me, I need to go find a mirror and examine my kissers.

Even though he's basically a corporation himself, 50 CENT has dumped a big anti-corporate rant on his website, He says, "The world is so [effed] up. People don't seem to care anymore.

"People seem to have distanced themselves from other people's problems, they have been programmed not to care! Politicians are many companies are corrupt and taking excessive profits...and we keep allowing this [stuff] to happen."

Hasn't 50 Cent heard about this "Occupy" stuff? People ARE beginning to not only care...but to try to do something about it.

#1.) Trick-or-treating. It comes from an old tradition where poor children in England and Ireland would go door-to-door praying for the dead on All Saints' Day.

After World War Two, children in the U.S. started doing the door-to-door walk, and people started giving them candy...which led to trick-or-treating.

#2.) Jack-o-lanterns. This comes from an Irish legend about a farmer named Jack who would play tricks on the devil AND God. That got him banned from heaven and hell, so he roamed the world as a flame inside carved vegetables.

Jack-o-lanterns became part of Irish superstition too. People would carve turnips and put them outside their houses to scare away evil spirits. Americans used pumpkins instead because there were more of them and they were easier to carve.

#3.) Haunted houses. These don't come from any tradition...except the tradition of people finding a way to MAKE MONEY off holidays.

In the 1950s, Junior Chamber International clubs realized they could make money off haunted houses that played off the Halloween spirit, so they did...and everyone else followed their lead.

Here's one of those "Hey, it's Halloween, let's do a survey" surveys. According to a bed and breakfast website, 15% of people say they've definitely seen a ghost in their lifetime.

The survey also found that 44% say they've visited someplace that was actually haunted...37% would like to visit a real haunted house...and 27.5% would want to spend the night in a haunted house.

Remember this survey when a guy leaves you because he's not sexually satisfied, and you turn to Facebook for comfort.

A new survey by "Cosmopolitan" asked women if they'd rather give up sex or their computer, cell phone, or Facebook. And sex REALLY didn't fare so well. Don't get me wrong, I like FB as much as the next guy, but...

57% of women would rather have their computer for a week than sex...50% would rather have their cell phone for a week than sex...and 20% even said they need Facebook for a week more than they need sex.

OH, HI...
I was just thinking, "It's been, like, four hours since someone released a new study about porno, I hope someone fills the void soon." So, well played University of Sunderland in stepped up.

And actually, they somehow pulled off a massive international survey on pornography that's actually interesting. Here are some of the preliminary results.

#1.) Women 18-to-25 are the biggest porno fiends. You'd never guess it...but they asked people how much they watch porno and how important it is to their sex life. And women 18-to-25 had the highest numbers by far.

Between ages 26 and 35, the genders basically even out their porn frequency and importance. After that, it becomes more frequently viewed and more important to men.

#2.) Here are the main reasons people watch porno, in order. "I feel horny"..."I'm bored, can't relax, or can't sleep"..."I WANT to feel horny"..."I don't have anything better to do"..."It's a good way to enjoy my sexual interests/fetishes."

The five least popular reasons for watching porno are: "I saw a pop-up ad and clicked it"..."I want to see things I shouldn't do"..."I want to see things I wouldn't do"..."I like the drama of the stories"...and "For a laugh."

#3.) Here are the main places people go for porno, in order. Free porno sites, like Porntube or YouPorn...downloads..."amateur" websites...sexual fiction sites...and specialty fetish sites.

Notice that DVDs and magazines didn't even make the list...they both finished in the middle of the pack.

The places people go the least are: Porn star pay-per-view sites...porno studio pay-per-view sex cam sites...hook-up or AdultFriendFinder-type sites...and chatrooms.

That's what they're saying in the Motor City. Two groups that don't get mentioned together very often are the Centers for Disease Control and Sleepy's, The Mattress Professionals. That's a chain of mattress stores (we don't have any stores locally.

But Sleepy's used CDC data on the sleep habits of 350,000 people, and came up with a list of the most sleep-deprived cities in America.

The most sleep-deprived city is Detroit, which, as Sleepy's points out, might be because it's also one of the most dangerous cities in the country.
Are they saying no one is sleeping cause they're out murdering folks?

The rest of the top five are:
Birmingham, Alabama, which is also one of the least-healthy cities in the U.S.
Oklahoma City, which has seen a huge rise in prescription drug abuse.
New Orleans, which was hit by Hurricane Katrina six years ago. (they stretched for a reason on some of these cities.)
And New York.

Sleepy's also pointed out that most of the sleep-deprived cities are east of the Mississippi, and known for crime, recession, or poor health.

Three of the five most-rested cities are in California. San Diego tops the list, followed by Dallas; Richmond, Virginia; San Jose, and San Francisco.

RIHANNA was in Paris last week...and according to the British tabloids, she spent $1,500 at a SEX SHOP called Lovestore.

Her purchases included sexy panties and other lingerie, toys, leather handcuffs and scented candles.

A source says, "She knew exactly what she was after and didn't want any assistance picking out items. A blacked-out car parked on the pavement right outside the shop...There was no dithering.

"She was grinning from ear to ear and seemed to be in a hurry to get back to her hotel."

Thinking about having an affair? Good news: You have a surprisingly decent chance that your significant other will take you back once they inevitably find out.

According to a survey, these are the latest numbers on cheating. And they show some pretty bad/sad trends....

#1.) Tons of people are cheating. Shockingly, 47% of people...or almost HALF...admit they've cheated on a partner.

#2.) A decent amount of cheaters are getting away with it. 63% of cheaters have been caught...meaning you have almost a two-in-three chance of being nailed, but more than a one-in-three chance of getting away with it.

#3.) 42% of the people surveyed said they've taken back someone who cheated on them. That means you've got about a TWO-IN-FIVE CHANCE of being forgiven for an affair.

30% of people said they would actually give their partner PERMISSION to cheat on them with a celebrity. (.....hi!! do I count? kidding)

Of the cheaters, 25% say DRUNKENNESS was their primary motivation...and 20% say they were getting REVENGE on their partner for cheating on them.

This is pretty much nonsense, but Gawker has a list of different types of candy, and what they supposedly say about your personality if you hand them out on Halloween. Here are the top six.

#1.) Fun-Sized Candy Bars. Basically, it means you're normal. You care about the tradition of Halloween, but not TOO much. And you know it's what most kids WANT.

#2.) Candy That Doesn't Have Chocolate. Gawker says if you give out things like Skittles, Sweet Tarts, or Starburst, it means you care about Halloween, but you want to be DIFFERENT.

Apparently ignoring kids' love of chocolate makes you some kind of trailblazer.

#3.) Candy Corn. The last time kids were EXCITED to get candy corn was sometime between 1950 and 1960. Or my friend Ashley yesterday. So if you give it out now, it means you're either out of touch, or trying to recreate your own childhood.

#4.) Tootsie Rolls. You could make the same argument here, but according to Gawker, Tootsie Rolls are one of the BEST things to give out. They say Tootsie Rolls make you come across as simple, but classic.

#5.) Lollipops. It means you're not into Halloween, and might even leave your porch light off. But you want to have something in case kids knock on your door anyway.

$6.) Full-Sized Candy Bars. It means one of two things: You're either trying to impress your neighbors. Or you're so emotionally scarred that you desperately need the approval of nine-year-olds.

If you're single, Halloween is a GOLD MINE for meeting people. Costumes just make EVERYTHING easier.

The people at the social dating site just released the results of their survey on Halloween and's what they found, and the advice you should follow...

Men most prefer women in SEXY costumes. 71% of men said that's their favorite. (DUH)

Women most prefer men in FUNNY costumes, although it's not as overwhelming. 51% said funny is the best.

Only 5% of men and 12% of women say they'd be attracted to someone in a SCARY costume.

Group costumes with your friends aren't the way to go if you're looking to hook-up. 47% of both men and women say they would be reluctant to approach someone in a group costume, mostly because they seem "taken."

44% of men and 42% of women say they'd be willing to go out on a date on Halloween night.

According to a new survey by Yahoo, the perception of smoking has done a full 180 in the past 40 or 50 years.

Across all age groups, 57% of men and 71% of women say that smoking is, quote, "VERY UNCOOL."

61% of people under 34 say they've NEVER smoked.

58% of women and 49% of men say they would NOT date a smoker.

As for the smokers surveyed . . .

Only 28% admit they're addicted.

72% say, "I choose when I smoke and can go without at any time."

I have no idea what's special about it. Probably nothing. But here we go.

My favorite music-awards show. Now, that we've all had the chance to regroup from the SHEER HYSTERIA of Columbus Day Weekend, we can get back to the REAL business at hand:

Voting for New Artist of the Year is a little different. There's a separate link above the other nominees at

All of them are eligible until October 21st. At that point, a smaller group of finalists will be determined...and there will be another round of voting.

At least according to an old study by a psychologist at King's College in London named Dr. Glenn Wilson. He visited bars, observed 500 different drinkers, and came up with eight different personality types...and how to approach them.

According to Dr. Wilson, "The simple act of holding a drink displays a lot more about us than we realize...or might want to divulge." Check it out.

#1.) The Flirt: A woman who holds her glass in a provocative way, with her fingers splayed. She might hold her drink over her chest, to draw attention to her cleavage, or peer over the rim to check you out as she's taking a sip.

According to Dr. Wilson, "She may 'tease' the rim of the glass with her finger, perhaps dipping it into the drink and sucking it dry." Obviously there's no guess-work here...just go for it.

#2.) The Gossip: A woman who holds a wine glass by the bowl, and uses it as a prop to gesticulate and make points. She tends to cluster in a group with other women, and she's critical.

She also likes to lean in over her drink towards other people, so she can speak more honestly and be more confidential. She already has a close-knit social group...and she's NOT looking to extend it.

#3.) The Ice Queen: A woman who drinks from a wine glass or a short cocktail, and holds it firmly as a barrier across her body. She's cold, defensive, doesn't want to be approached, and she'll put you down if you do.

#4.) The Fun-Lover: Someone who likes to drink beer from the bottle, hold it loosely by their shoulder, and take short swigs so they don't miss out on anything in the conversation.

It means you're friendly, lively, you enjoy being with your friends, you like to laugh, and you drink to be you're ALWAYS down to meet new people.

#5.) The Wallflower: You hold your drink protectively and you don't let you're afraid somebody will take it. Your palms are hidden, and the drink's never finished...there's always a mouthful left 'in case of an emergency.'

Obviously it means you're shy and submissive, and you're using the drink as a social crutch. If there's a straw, you fidget with it, and you stir the drink between sips. You copy the pace of the drinking around you.

With Wallflowers you have to take it easy...they need to be approached with a few subtle compliments to build their self-confidence.

#6.) The Player: A guy with a tall glass, cocktail, or a bottle who uses it as a phallic prop, and plays with it suggestively. He's self-confident, possessive, and can get a little 'handsy' with the women around him...and get away with it.

#7.) The Peacock: The player who's actually more into himself. He spreads himself over as much space as possible, like pushing the glass away and leaning back in his chair. He's over-confident, arrogant, and would rather just drink with his friends.

#8.) The Browbeater: A verbally hostile know-it-all who prefers large pint glasses or bottles, grasps them firmly, gesticulates in a threatening in-your-face way, and is always making fun of other people. If you can't handle it, don't bother.

You always hear about people who won't have sex with the lights on. But I can't remember ever hearing about people who won't have sex with the lights OFF.

According to a survey by the adult store Adam & Eve, about 10% of people say they NEVER want to have sex in the dark...they ALWAYS want to be able to see EVERYTHING.

Naturally, they're the minority. The survey found that 41% of people NEVER want to have sex with the lights ON. And 48% of people prefer variety...sometimes doing it with the lights on, sometimes with the lights off.

This week is National Pet Peeve Week, and to celebrate, the dating site Zoosk conducted a survey on biggest dating pet peeves.

Apparently, men are more annoying than women. One in four men could only come up with one pet peeve, if they could think of any. One in five women listed more than five.

The biggest pet peeve for women is when their date smells. Almost half of all women listed that as a complaint. How DARE you expect me to shower for you!

Half of men said that their biggest pet peeve was when their date was too occupied with their cell phone.

Cell phones were women's second-biggest complaint, followed by dates who were late. Talking about yourself too much was the fourth worst thing, and asking her too many questions about herself was right behind.

For men, smelliness was second, followed by lateness. Too many questions was fourth, and too much makeup was fifth.

Half of women say that sexual innuendo on a first date annoyed them, but only one in 11 men were bothered by it.

When it comes to appearance, too much body hair was women's biggest pet peeve, followed by inappropriate clothes. Dressing badly was tops for men, followed by crooked teeth.

This is a pretty big generational split...and your grandfather would WHUP YOU with a switch if he heard about it.

Men used to spend their entire lives with one goal: Making enough money to provide for their family. It would've KILLED THEM not to be the breadwinner, the way the MAN is supposed to be.

Men today? Yeah...they'd GLADLY sit on the couch and play video games while their wives go out and make big money.

In a new survey, 75% of guys ages 16 to 35 say they'd be FINE living an easy life of just hanging out at home while a wife or girlfriend provided for them.

The survey also found that 85% of guys between 16 and 35 say that if they ARE the breadwinner, going out and serving as the primary provider for the family every day, they'd expect dinner to be waiting for them when they get home.

RIHANNA has been named "Esquire" magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive for 2011.

Not surprisingly, Rihanna posed NUDE for the magazine. Unfortunately, all her AREAS OF INTEREST are strategically covered. Here's the gallery:

The first runner-up was KATY PERRY.

Other ladies in the running included Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Maria Bello, Emma Stone, Beyoncé, Mila Kunis, (!!!) Hope Solo (???) and MMA minx Gina Carano.

In Rihanna's accompanying interview, she regurgitates the usual clichéd stuff chicks always say when they're awarded some kind of "sexy" honor: She doesn't really think about being sexy all that much.

She says, "At the end of a concert, I don't feel like I've been this sexy thing. Really, I don't even think about it...But I don't know. I guess people find different things sexy."

Is anybody buying this? Pretty much every second that Rihanna is in front of a camera or an audience, she's TRYING LIKE HELL to be as sexy as possible. We know it and she knows it.

Far more interesting is what Rihanna had to say about CHRIS BROWN. It turns out she's EXCITED to see how well he's doing since he beat her up in February of 2009.

She says, "It's incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he's putting out. I'm a fan of his stuff. I've always been a fan.

"Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I've put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger.

"I'm really excited to see the breakthrough he's had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have."

We've really turned into a nation of VOYEURS. According to a new Harris poll, 50% of American adults say that, yeah, they sometimes pull out their phone to take a secret photo or video of someone.

And here's who they're targeting...

--23% have taken a photo of someone in an embarrassing outfit.
--20% have photographed an athlete at a sporting event.
--15% have gotten someone tripping and falling.
--10% have taken a secret picture of a sexy waitress.
--9% have taken a photo of a shirtless guy mowing the lawn.
--7% have taken photos of cheerleaders.
--7% have photographed their boss or a coworker eating.
--6% have photographed someone's disgusting grooming habits.
--And 5% have taken a picture of a couple making out.

Surely, I don't need to remind you that CHRIS BROWN is a man who really understands how to treat a woman...but I'm going to anyway.

Chris and BOW WOW were at a strip club in Miami last week called King of Diamonds...and they spared NO expense.

TMZ says they, "lined the floor with singles"...bought "untold bottles of booze" for their entourage...and after they were through, "at least three dancers walked away with $5,000 in tips, each."

One of the unofficial rules of dating is that you NEVER use a coupon on a date. At least we THOUGHT that was one of the rules. This economy is throwing everything out of whack, man.

In a new survey by the website, 18% of people say they've used a coupon on a first date.

And believe it or not, it didn't sink most of them. The survey found that 73% of people say it's not really a turn-off if someone uses a coupon on a date.
100% of those people were LIARS.
What? Anyway...26% say they'd actually be IMPRESSED if someone had a coupon ready to use.

Only 4% of the people surveyed said it's NEVER acceptable to use a coupon on a date...not even when you're having "date night" with your husband or wife.

But if you're on a date and not sure whether it'll ruin things to use a coupon, you can always try this trick...Go to the bathroom, find your server, and let them know you'll leave a good tip if they apply the coupon off discreetly.

It's about two-and-a-half weeks until Halloween, so if you haven't started shopping for your costume yet...DON'T. It's WAY too late for that. Time to scrap it altogether and get going on your CHRISTMAS SHOPPING.

According to a new survey, 29% of people say they've already started buying their holiday gifts. Women are almost twice as likely as men to have to have gotten started.

But if you want to hang with the slackers, 11% of people with kids and 23% of people without kids say they're going to wait until December to start their shopping.

The survey also found that 65% of men and 56% of women plan to spend more than $1,000 this Christmas.

And 40% of people are going to buy ALL their gifts online.

One of my past first dates....well we didn't really call it a date, but the first time we spent some length of time together.....ended in the back of a Cuyahoga Falls PD cruiser.
Don't ask. I don't feel like telling you more than that :)

Anyway, on October 5th, 18-year-old Devin Norling and 19-year-old Sydney Sanders from Vero Beach, Florida went on their first date.

And Devin went with my favorite first date spot...T.G.I. Friday's. He even let her order the FRIED GREEN BEANS!

Unfortunately, he didn't have any money. So after the waitress brought their bill for $25.16...the couple pulled the old DINE-AND-DASH move.

A manager spotted them running through the parking lot toward a Wendy's, and called the cops.

The cops easily tracked them down, and both Devin and Sydney were charged with obtaining food with intent to defraud, which is a misdemeanor.

The cops also found a marijuana pipe in Sydney's purse, so she was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia too.

IT'S SUNDAY, SUNDAY, GOTTA GET DOWN ON SUNDAY... Does it not work when you use Sunday? Well it IS still the weekend!

I BROUGHT GOODIES! Here we go...

I think we've actually reached a point in society where, for women anyway, gorging on food is LESS socially acceptable than having sex with a bunch of dudes. And this survey backs that up.

According to the weight loss company Atkins, 54% of women say they spend more time fantasizing about FOOD than about SEX. (They must be having BAD sex?)

More than one-third of women say they think about food more than they think about their boyfriend or husband.

A quarter of women say that they put more effort into their diet than they do into their relationship.

And now, the final kicker: One in ten women say they feel guiltier cheating on their DIET than cheating on their PARTNER.

The most common reason women gave for dieting was to try to get a perfect beach body. The second-most common reason was people making fun of them for being chubby.

The survey also found that at least 75% of adult women have been on a diet at least once in their lifetime.

According to a research firm called SocialBakers, Facebook is still the king of social networks. Not that you are surprised by that at all.

As of the end of September, Facebook had 760 million users. That's more than twice as much as Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus combined. Twitter had 200 million users, LinkedIn had 120 million, and Google Plus had 30 million.

Facebook is so popular that the most-followed person on Google Plus is Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, with 570,000 fans.

The most popular brand on Facebook is Coke, with 34.5 million fans. Disney, Starbucks, Oreo cookies, and Red Bull round out the top five.

Starbucks is the only brand of the five that also makes the top five on Twitter. They have 1.7 million Twitter followers, second to Whole Foods, with two million.

If you want to keep up with your favorite brand, the best day to check is Thursday. That's the most popular day for companies to update their social networking statuses. Sunday is the least popular day.

If you write to a company on Facebook, your best bet for getting a response is with a cell phone company or airline. They return messages to customers about a quarter of the time.

I would like to think I have a 95% response rate :)

PINK has joined the cast of "Thanks for Sharing"...a movie about SEX ADDICTION. Sadly, it's not quite as dirty as it sounds. Pink will play a "free spirit" who bonds with a sex addict played by an actor named Josh Gad.

His biggest claim to fame right now is starring in "The Book of Mormon"...the Tony-winning Broadway musical from "South Park" creators TREY PARKER and MATT STONE.

Also in the cast are Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson and Mark Ruffalo.

RIHANNA isn't really a good role model for the girls of the world. And that's cool with her. Because she doesn't want to be an example for anybody else. And she adds that the Rihanna WE see isn't even real.

She says, "That's not me. That's a part I play. You know, like it's a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with.

"See, people...they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me, and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That's it."

They EXPECT her to be a role model after "S&M"? ooook.

Meanwhile...Rihanna claims she didn't know until recently that the C-WORD was dirty. In fact, she says it's NOT offensive to people from her home country of Bardados.

She says, "You know African-Americans use the N-word to their brothers? Well, that's the way we use the C-word.

"When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, 'Hey, [C-word],' until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know."

I had to laugh the other day when I saw a girl I know write on someone's FB that she sees EVERYDAY. Women are more likely to use Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks to keep in touch with people.

A study by the telecommunications company Rebtel found that 68% of women use social networks to keep in touch with friends, while 54% of men do.

60% of women use social networking to keep in contact with family members, compared to 42% of men.

At work, 34% of women use Facebook and other social networks to contact colleagues, while 22% of men do.

Men are more likely to use the phone or leave a voicemail to stay in touch with friends, family, and work colleagues.

That contradicts previous studies that found that men were better at using new technology to network.

If there's one area where you should trust an American's opinion, it's on the subject of greasy meats. We're all doctorate-level geniuses on that. So take this very seriously.

A new poll by the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council...which is a real thing...asked Americans to name their favorite type of sausage. And here are the results.

Breakfast sausage is America's favorite, at 27%.
Italian sausage came in a close second, at 25%.
Bratwurst is third, at 18%.
Kielbasa is fourth, at 14%.
And chorizo came in fifth, at 7%.

The remaining 8% said "andouille" or "other".

Overall, 82% of Americans, or more than four out of five, eat sausage. That's divided up into 87% of men and 77% of women.

54% of sausage eaters eat it most often at breakfast...4% eat it most often at lunch...and 26% eat it most often at dinner.

When they're eating breakfast sausage, links are more than twice as popular as patties.

mmmmmm, sausage!

If you've been sitting on 77 during rush hour this week, it's about time we saw a study about the most congested cities...nasal, not traffic.

Here's a list of the ten most congested cities in the U.S. based on pollen numbers, air pollution, climate, smoking rates, purchase of congestion products, and flu rates.

#1.) Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
#2.) Birmingham, Alabama
#3.) New Orleans, Louisiana
#4.) Louisville, Kentucky
#5.) Memphis, Tennessee
#6.) San Antonio, Texas
#7.) Dallas, Texas
#8.) Charlotte, North Carolina
#9.) Houston, Texas
#10.) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I'm ALL FOR hunting of deer. Not that I would ever go do it myself (that's silly, I can buy meat a place called Fishers, or Giant Eagle), but I sure as hell don't wanna HIT one of the stupid things going down the road at night! Hunting should be year round.

State Farm Insurance just released its annual report on car accidents involving deer. Which gives us a perfect opportunity to tell the people of West Virginia they need to STOP KILLING BAMBI'S MOM over and over.

The study found that almost 2% of drivers in West Virginia hit a deer in the past in every 53 drivers had a car-on-deer accident. That's almost FOUR TIMES the national average, and 50% higher than the next closest state.

Iowa came in second, with a one-in-77 car-on-deer rate. South Dakota is third, at one in 81...Pennsylvania is fourth, at one in 86...and Michigan is fifth, at one in 91. Trust me, in Northern Michigan...there's a TON OF DEER, everywhere!

Overall, the nationwide average is one deer collision for every 193 drivers.

Hawaii...where there are fewer deer AND fewer drivers...had the lowest rate, at one in 6,267. That means you're 11,825% less likely to crash into a deer in Hawaii than you are in West Virginia.

Car-on-deer collisions have dropped the last three years. State Farm says that gas prices have led to fewer drivers, which has led to fewer drivers smacking deer.

ADELE has been forced to cancel her U.S. tour...for the second time...because her voice is messed up. This time, she has a hemorrhage in her vocal chord.

She has posted a long apology on her site...saying that if she doesn't take a, quote, "extended rest period" now, she could permanently damage her voice.

She explains, "If I continue to pick up everything before I have properly conquered these problems and nipped them in the bud, I will be totally and utterly [effed]...I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or I risk damaging my voice forever.

"I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously I take it and how truly devastated and annoyed I am by this...I will be back and I'm gonna smash the ball out the park once I'm touring again."

All the shows were sold out.

She also canceled a bunch of U.S. dates back in June when she came down with laryngitis. All those shows were sold out, too.

There's no word when she might be able to return to the road

RIHANNA has announced that her next album is called "Talk That Talk", and it'll come out on November 21st. It'll be her sixth album in seven years. Her last album "Loud" came out on November 10th of last year.

Remember GARBAGE? Of course you do, "I'm Only Happy When It Rains", "Stupid Girl", "Special", and several other mid-90's female-rock songs of AWESOMENESS!
Well, they've just announced plans to release their first album since 2005.

There isn't a title or a release date yet, but the band recently posted a Facebook message saying, "OK we're back in the studio today, we have 3 more weeks booked to hopefully finish everything!"

Sure, Hurricane Irene destroyed homes, killed at least 45 people, and caused $7 BILLION in damage...but WOW, look at those leaves in Vermont!

New England states are experiencing EXTRA COLORFUL and BEAUTIFUL fall foliage this year...and it's all thanks to Hurricane Irene.

The heavy rain helped keep the soil in the Northeast extra moist, which helps the leaves stay on the trees longer. There will be more leaves, brighter leaves, and a longer period with gorgeous foliage...and it's all thanks to Irene.

Foliage tourists...or "leafers"...are huge for the New England states. Every year, tourists who come to see the leaves on "leaf peeping" tours contribute hundreds of millions of dollars to the states' economies.

If you're going on a vacation soon and the boyfriend asks if you wanna hit the Motor City Casino...suggest WINDSOR instead.

Sharing a meal with someone of the opposite sex affects how much we food we get...and it affects men and women in opposite ways.

Researchers from the University of Akron watched people in campus dining halls and kept track of how much food they ordered...and who they ate with.

Think about that, Akron students. People were spying on you while you ate and you probably didn't even know it!

They found that when men were eating with women, they ordered MORE food than they did when eating with other guys.

When women were eating with guys, they ordered LESS food than when they were eating with just the girls.

There's one major flaw: They only looked at how much food each person ORDERED...not whether they actually ATE it. So if a guy bought lunch for his girlfriend and brought it to her, he'd get credit for two meals, and she didn't get any credit.

The conclusion the researchers drew is that men don't want to come off as light eaters in front of women, because it would make them seem less manly. Women don't want to look like big eaters in front of guys.

Marcia Cottingham co-authored the study. She said, "You're more aware of gender when you're with the opposite gender and may want to prove your gender more." (Okay, got it...gender.)

Another theory suggested by the authors was that women focus on the social aspect of a meal when eating with the opposite sex...while guys just want to eat.

This goes against everything we think we know about men and women...but it's good news, so we're going to roll with it.

According to a nationwide survey by the people who make K-Y Jelly, women are now more SEXUALLY ADVENTUROUS than men...because they get bored with traditional sex faster than men. Here's what they found...

Women are more likely to report having sex outside the bedroom, 85% to 83%.

Women are more likely to TALK DIRTY, 76% to 63%.

Women are more likely to suggest WATCHING PORNO TOGETHER, 51% to 48%.

Women are more likely to have sex when there's a chance of being heard or getting caught, 68% to 55%.

Women are more likely to strip for their partner, 45% to 33%.

Women are more likely to have been in a THREESOME, 10% to 6%.

Women are more likely to have ROLE PLAYED, 23% to 17%.

And finally, women are more likely to have had BACKDOOR RELATIONS, 49% to 38%.

The survey also found that both men and women who did more experimental and adventurous things reported higher levels of sexual satisfaction...and relationship satisfaction...than people who didn't.

So, try something a little different tonight and spice it up a bit!

How many lives must Facebook ruin? There's blood on your hands, Zuckerberg.

On Monday, 36-year-old Benito Apolinar of Carlsbad, New Mexico posted a Facebook status update about the anniversary of his mother's death. And his wife, Dolores...who he just separated from after 15 years...didn't click "Like."

That sent Benito into a RAGE!!! He told his wife he couldn't believe so many other people "Liked" his status and she didn't. They argued, it escalated, and he ended up grabbing and pulling her hair.

She called the cops and he was arrested. He's now facing battery charges.

YES!!! We announced it FRIDAY morning on The DeLuca Show. Q92 rocks the Canton Palace Theatre on Tuesday November 22 with SIMPLE PLAN and WE THE KINGS. Along with some cool openers, Marianas Trench, Forever The Sickest Kids, and The Cab!

If you're a Club Q member, you should have received an email on how to snag your tickets. If you're NOT a member, sign up and then you too can get a pair (or more) of seats.
Tix on sale to the general public at on FRIDAY!

Aight, here's some shtuff...

Or maybe that should be, SLAM DUNK? Last weekend, JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ went to see DEMI LOVATO'S gig at the Nokia Theater in L.A. Then they went to a movie. And that's where the date went to the next level.

Justin and Selena went to see "Titanic". Were they even BORN when that movie was released? And there's NUDITY in that movie, I'm not sure Justin is old enough to see that yet!!!
They went by themselves.
Justin rented out the Staples Center...where the Lakers he and Selena could watch a freakin' movie.

Earlier in the day, Justin Tweeted, "Romance isn't dead. Treat your lady right, fellas."

While I would agree...I would argue...what the hell is romantic about an empty basketball arena?! I guess he's young and dumb, we should give him an "A" for effort.

We should also note that the date didn't cost Justin a dime. They let him have the joint free of charge because he's sold it out three times already.

Also, Justin didn't think of the idea himself. He got it from the scene in the movie "Mr. Deeds", where ADAM SANDLER surprises WINONA RYDER with a date in an empty Madison Square Garden.

That's quoteable from my future ex-girlfriend, KELLY CLARKSON, in an interview with E! ONLINE.
She added, "I'm pretty sure I've never made out with a girl. It's just not helping me because I'm straight. No boy wants to hit on me because I make mean songs about them, and they think I'm gay."

Um, hi. Kelly?

Quoteable from BRITNEY SPEARS. She adds, "I just do it for fun and see what happens...I hear the older you get, the wiser you get and the more you know what you want. Hopefully it'll be a good year."

Even though this sounds like something someone would say around New Year's, Britney made this comment now because she was talking about her upcoming 30th birthday, which is December 2nd.

Last Saturday was the 20th anniversary of the release of NIRVANA'S "Nevermind"...and to celebrate, MTV put together a list of interesting facts about the album. Here are the highlights:

Nirvana's label, Geffen, shipped 46,521 copies of "Nevermind" to retailers in its first week of release...and they initially hoped to eventually sell 200,000 copies.

"Nevermind" has sold 30 million copies worldwide...and has sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. Nine weeks after its release, it was certified Platinum. That's for 1 million in domestic sales.

"Nevermind" debuted at #144 on the Billboard Top 200 chart...but ended up remaining on the Top 200 for 253 weeks. That's equivalent to nearly FIVE YEARS.

The album was nominated for two Grammys, but didn't win either. The "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video received four nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards...and won two: Best Alternative Video and Best New Artist in a Video

OK, that should be clarified a little. A study by the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health found that bossy women have less sex.

Researchers talked to women in six African countries about their roles in household decision making, and how often they have relations.

Women who take on all the responsibility of shopping, making the household budget, and making appointments for the family have less sex than women who share those duties with their husband.

And the amount of time since they'd last had sex was anywhere from three to 100 times longer for the take-charge women, depending on how many decisions the women are responsible for.

If you think guys are turned off by bossy wives, according to the're wrong.

Their theory is that the bossy women are also taking charge in the bedroom and calling the shots on how often they have sex. (Which could possibly speak for the guys' SKILLS as well, but...)

The U.S. Census Bureau has released their Commuting in the United States report, using data from 2009. They found that the average worker has a 25-minute commute, which is basically unchanged from 2000.

One in eight workers get to work in ten minutes or less, while one in 50 take an average of 90 minutes or more.

New York has the worst commute, at about 35 minutes. Washington, D.C. is second, followed by Poughkeepsie, New York. Chicago, Baltimore, and Atlanta are also in the top 10.

If you want a short commute, you should live in a small city. The ten best commutes are all places with populations of less than 300,000 people.

The best commute in the U.S. is in Great Falls, Montana, at 14 minutes. Lewiston, Idaho and Grand Forks, North Dakota are next best. But, ya know. No people there!

The biggest "share the road" city is Corvallis, Oregon, where 9% of commuters get to work by bicycle. The city with the most walkers is Ithaca, New York, where 15% of people walk to work.

Men leave for work earlier than women. Almost 40% of guys leave before 7:00 A.M., while less than 25% of women leave that early.

Ladies, he's OFF the market. JORDIN SPARKS and JASON DERULO are a couple. They were spotted out Sunday night celebrating Jason's 22nd birthday.

According to new research out of the University of Minnesota, the modern HOOK-UP CULTURE is stronger than ever.

Their latest study found that 25% of young single women now report having sex with a guy within the FIRST WEEK OF DATING.

And about 30% of sexual relationships are now just that...purely sexual relationships. No dating or spending money or having real conversation...just some texting and humping.

Sociologists say this is a result of simple supply and demand. On U.S. college campuses, 57% of students are women.

That means men can be more picky, and women have to be more competitive. The way to beat the competition is to give a guy what he wants...and that's quick sex and plenty of it.

Once people get out of college, educated, single men are still more women have to compete the same way.

I LIKE this supply and demand thing!

At least according to one survey, dating sites aren't the top sites for dating online anymore.

In the survey, 18% of people said FACEBOOK and other social networking sites are the best way to meet people online...making that the number one answer.

17% ask a friend or use mutual friends to introduce them to someone online...13% say they use the big online dating sites...and 6% use niche dating sites. Ya know, (???)

I'm all for having someone swipe my groceries for me. I mean, I'm spending money in your business, you can use my money to pay LIVING, BREATHING PEOPLE to stand there and do a job. I mean, I work enough, I don't wanna have to scan my OWN groceries!

Apparently, people have had trouble adapting to the SELF-CHECKOUTS...stores haven't saved on staff because they have to be monitored for theft and for people who have trouble with the machines...and customers haven't fallen in love with them. I know I HATE using them and avoid them when I can.

According to a study by the Food Marketing Institute out of Virginia, only 16% of the grocery transactions in 2010 were done at self-checkouts in stores that provided that option. In other words, five out of six people chose to go to a cashier.

Three years ago, as self-checkouts were just starting to get big, they accounted for 22% of transactions.

So now, because people don't really like the self-checkouts, a lot of chains are getting rid of them...or at least shutting most of them down so the staff members who used to monitor them can move over to regular registers.

Here's yet another reason why PARENTS and FACEBOOK will NEVER mix.

The football team from Perry County High School in Tennessee just had to vacate THREE of their wins so far this season...all because one mom posted about her kids' messy rooms on Facebook. (???)

The kids are Rodney and Ryan Belasic. They both play offensive line for Perry High.

And their mom recently posted on Facebook, "How can two boys mess up their room as badly as they do when they're only here on Saturday and Sunday?"

That status update got passed along to the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association. They'd been suspicious that the Belasic boys didn't actually live in Perry County...and after the Facebook update they investigated further.

Does this not seem like hick-town people with NOTHING better to do? Come on! I have no idea how big Perry County, TN is, but I'm betting its small.

And they found their suspicions were correct...the Belasic family actually lives in a different county, Henry County, and the boys just travel to Perry County during the week to go to school.

So technically they were ineligible to play for the team...and the team had to vacate three wins. They kept two wins where the Belasics didn't play. But now instead of being 5-and-0, they're 2-and-3.


Remember back when you were a kid and you'd watch your father fixing the pipes under the sink, or changing the insulation? And you just kinda assumed one day when you were a dad, you'd suddenly wake up knowing how to do all that too? don't. And most other guys don't either.

In a new survey, 72% of men said they could handle VERY basic home repair or improvement stuff, but for anything that requires even SLIGHT replacing a broken tile...they'd call in a professional.

40% of men say they either CAN'T do ANYTHING around the home or they probably could, but they'd choose to call a handyman anyway.

14% of men say that their pride won't let them call a matter how unqualified they are to make the repairs themselves.

Changing a fuse is the task that the most men believe they can do, at 70%. Stripping wallpaper and painting the house tied for second, at 61%...fitting a curtain rod is fourth, at 53%...and unclogging a toilet is fifth, at 51%.

Installing a brand new kitchen is the skill the fewest men believe they have, at 14%...laying new carpet or putting up a deck tied for second-fewest, at 22%...installing a sink, laying vinyl floor, and removing a radiator tied for fourth, at 24%

After the third "American Pie" movie, "American Wedding", Universal started making direct-to-DVD movies under the "American Pie" banner with almost none of the original cast. The videos made some money, but they're not very good.

So Universal decided to get the entire original cast from "American Pie" back together to make a fourth theatrical film...called "American Reunion". And now we know how much they had to PAY all the actors to come back.

Jason Biggs and Seann William Scott are getting paid the most, at $5 MILLION each, plus a small piece of the gross.

Alyson Hannigan and Eugene Levy are next, getting about $3 MILLION.

The actors who haven't gotten more famous since "Pie"...Chris Klein, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Natasha Lyonne, Jennifer Coolidge, Mena Suvari, and Shannon Elizabeth...will get $500,000 to $750,000.

And finally, Tara Reid...who was once, arguably, the biggest name in the cast...has fallen so far that she'll get the LOWEST salary, at around $250,000.

The film centers around all of the characters getting back together for their 10-year high school reunion. It's set to open on April 6th of next year.
