AUDIO: Why Would You Flush a Hamster?!

February 9, 2018

Many airlines are cracking down on "emotional support animals," especially since someone tried to bring a peackock on a flight. Spirit airlines recently told a woman she was not allowed to bring her hamster on board a flight to Miami, which led to her flushing the hamster down the toilet. We have far more questions than there are answers with this story.

If that story makes you want to drink, we're with you! But, it may be harder to drink tequila very soon. Farmers are having a tough time keeping up with the demand for blue agave, the main ingredient in tequila. They are being forced to use younger plants, which don't produce as much of what's needed to make the increasingly popular liquar, which could lead to a shortage!

That might also be bad news for your brain. Researchers have found that a low intake of alcohol might actually improve brain health by increasing the system  responsible for removing waste products from the brain. What qualifies as low intake? About 2 drinks a day. 

Poor Pebbles!
