Paper or Plastic?

A grocery store in Vancouver, B.C. is trying to get customers to not use plastic bags by offering up plastic bags that might not make you many friends on the bus.

Here are the bags, along with a few suggestions to make reusable bags a little more fun.

Coffee With Cory: Making internet challenges uncool since 1983

The bottlecap challenge is trendy and cool on the internet right now. So I’m here to make it not trendy and cool. Because that’s what I do. Here you go. See how hard I trained for this one segment that one viewer called ‘A bunch of dribble’ and ‘a punch of junk’.

Also, Pro Tip: Remember “righty tighty, lefty loosey.” I spent far too much time kicking this lid and not realizing I was simply tightening it.

Here’s the training montage by itself.

“With every shot, show a little improvement, to show it won’t take too long… that’s called a montage! Montage!” 

WATCH: Mentalist Paul Draper Stops By Lunch Break And WOWS US!

Magic has always fascinated me. I love it. Don’t know how it’s done, but I love it and will always jump at the opportunity to see some magic performed.

So when mentalist, magician, and entertainer Paul Draper stopped by the studios and asked if he could do some magic for us, I said, “You get in here and do magic now!”

Paul was in Spokane because he put on a free show for the kids at Camp Stix and was just hours away from leaving Spokane and heading to London to perform over there, but not before he performed some jaw-dropping tricks (“illusions, Michael”) for Grace and I on Lunch Break.

Driving Around in a Circle = Tornadoes

I can’t tell you how many… ahem… strange phone calls I’ve answered in the past nine years of working in the broadcasting business, but let’s just say it’s been enough to fill a book or two (Hmmmm… maybe soon).

A new station in Scranton, PA has a segment where they air viewer phone calls and after a few tornadoes popping up in the area recently, one viewer claimed to know exactly why.

Driving around in a circle = tornadoes.

Makes sense.

Take a look:

Couch Shopping

I just bought a couch, but now I’m in need of a new one.

Thankfully, furniture stores are literally always having a sale (but if everything is always on sale, is it really ever on sale?).

Here’s a really long way of essentially saying, “I’m looking for a new couch.” Also, I like were IKEA’s head is at.
