AUDIO: Happiness is Contagious

November 10, 2017

Surround yourself with positive people! According to a neuroscientist, your happiness has a lot to do with the people around you. A study out of Northwestern University suggests our brainwaves actually start to sync with those around us, and we mimic their behavior. So, on some level, if you want to be happy and successful in life, surround yourself with happy, successful people. It will rub off.

We all know it happened a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, but how long ago was that really? According to Patrick Johnson, Star Wars happened 4.7 billion years ago, before the earth was even created. In the book The Physics of Star Wars, Johnson took a look at when the first galaxies were formed, crunched the numbers and came up with that whopping figure.

Did you know there's a Toy Hall of Fame? We didn't either, but now we do. Each year a few toys are inducted, and this year, the choices are a bit odd. The Hall of Fame is welcoming the board game clue, the wiffle ball and the paper airplane. We didn't know the paper airplane qualified as a toy! We're leaqrning new stuff every day on The Morning Show!

This guy might end up in the bad criminals Hall of Fame, if there is one. An alleged robber in Georgia almost got away with several bank robberies, that is until he stopped to talk to a TV reporter. When she stopped Eric Rivers to discuss the town's traffic situation, she had no idea that Rivers had just robbed a bank, or that he'd rob another one immediatly after the interview. Police used the TV footage to match the surveillance footage they had of Rivers from his last robbery. He was captured later that day.

Don't Worry, We're All Happy
