HIGHLIGHTS: Would you be willing to spend two months in bed for $10,000? NASA's looking for volunteers who will lie in bed for 70 DAYS straight. It's to test the long-term effects of being horizontal during space travel. You can use the Internet, watch TV, play video games . . . you just can't stand up. And the best part is, they'll pay you $5,000-a-month.
HIGHLIGHTS: A new survey came up with the top ways people buy stuff without paying full price or going into debt. The top three are: Selling stuff on eBay or Craigslist to raise the money . . . making things to sell to get cash . . . or trading a useful skill for either money or the item itself.
HIGHLIGHTS: According to a new survey, ONE out of FIVE men say they're happy to let their wife or girlfriend check out a STRANGE NOISE in the middle of the night. About 40% let her go because they KNOW there's nothing to worry about . . . but 10% let her go because they're TOO SCARED to check it out themselves.
HIGHLIGHTS: This week, Sears, Walmart, and Amazon were all selling a Halloween decoration online that looks like a BLOODY, SKINNED DOG with a chain in its mouth. But people were outraged, so all three places pulled it . . . and blamed it on third-party companies who sell through their websites.
HIGHLIGHTS: GARY ALLAN was asked if TAYLOR SWIFT and CARRIE UNDERWOOD are country and he said, "No." But he added that there are no pure country artists anymore, including himself . . . and that the genre has room for everyone. He was also asked if there could ever be a gay country star, and he said, quote, "I'm sure there's been a few. I know of them but they've just never been public and I don't want to out anybody."
Have a great day!
