Cinnabon announced that they've found a way to make chocolate chip cookies that are stuffed with cinnamon rolls. I'm not sure how, but they did.

Anyway, they go on sale on Monday and they'll be available for a limited time.

We're heading into December, so here's a list of five weird things that cold weather can do to your body . . .


1.  You burn more calories.  Not enough to make a noticeable difference when it comes to your weight.  But just being cold increases your metabolism and burns more energy.


2.  Your fingers shrink.  Cold weather constricts blood vessels in places like your hands and feet to keep your core temperature up.  So if you wear a wedding ring, you might even notice it's slightly looser this time of year than it is in the summer.


3.  It can affect your vision.  Sunlight bouncing off snow can mess with your eyes, just like staring at the sun can.  And it's rare, but just being out in the cold too long can freeze your corneas, which can lead to blurred vision and light sensitivity.


4.  Your heart attack risk could be higher.  Your heart has to work harder to pump blood when you're cold, so it's more susceptible to a heart attack.  It mostly applies to older people though. 


5.  Your face gets red.  Your body has to redirect more blood to your vital organs when you're cold.  Then when you warm up, all that blood rushes back to your skin, which is what makes your face and neck suddenly look flushed.

According to a new study, you should throw away your underwear every YEAR . . . or it becomes a health risk.


Even though you're washing them after you wear them . . . hopefully . . . old underwear can still develop a buildup of bacteria like E. coli.  That can lead to you getting infections down there.  And NO ONE wants those infections.


Of course, not everyone is even washing them regularly.  The study found 18% of men and 10.5% of women wear underwear multiple times without washing them.


And one more thing:  The researchers also say you probably shouldn't wear underwear when you SLEEP . . . nude is better.

If the holidays weren't already expensive enough, here's something ELSE to add to the list.


Apparently, we're facing a Christmas tree SHORTAGE this year, so the prices are going to be up 5% to 10% all over the country.


The main reason is that the trees for this year should've been planted in 2008 . . . but since that was when the recession was RAGING, fewer farmers planted them, so the supply is down.

Some engineering students at the University of Michigan figured out how to essentially GUARANTEE that you win the wishbone breaking war at Thanksgiving.  Here are their five tips . . .


1.  Make sure it's dry.  A fresh wishbone won't break, it'll bend.  So you have to dry it out either by letting it sit out for a few days, or sticking it in the oven.


2.  Grab it with your dominant hand.  Your hands should be completely dry too, so that means licking the gravy off them first.


3.  Grab the side that looks thicker.  Where and how you grab the wishbone makes all the difference.  And getting the side that's thicker will give you an advantage.


4.  Grab as close to the base of the V as possible.  This is called "choking up" and it involves grabbing the wishbone between your thumb and index finger as close to the base of the V as possible.  But some people might consider that cheating so . . .


5.  Make your opponent do all the work.  The best tactic to win is to just remain still and let the other person pull.  More than likely, they'll pull up and out, and the more their side moves, the more stress and points of weakness it creates on the bone.

Sometimes a company launches a new product that complements their business SO well, you can't believe it took them this long to figure it out.  This is one of those cases.


Stove Top stuffing just launched a brand new product called Thanksgiving Dinner Pants.  They've got a big expandable waistband and, basically, they look like maternity pants.  But they're not for people who are pregnant, just gorging.


They're selling them at for $20 with free shipping.  You should grab some quick before they sell out.

New York University tested 200 people for psychopathic traits, and also had them listen to 260 songs . . . and now we have more details on the songs they liked.


All the results haven't been published yet . . . but as it turns out, psychopaths dig JUSTIN BIEBER.  In particular, his song "What Do You Mean" was popular with subjects who scored high on the psychopathy scale.


Meanwhile, on the low end were "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits and the country song "Wayward Wind", which was originally recorded by Gogi Grant in 1956, but has been covered by dozens of artists.


Psychopaths also like "Lose Yourself" by Eminem and "No Diggity" by Blackstreet . . . while non-psychos groove to "My Sharona" by The Knack.


They haven't found a pattern yet . . . if there is one.  And one of the researchers says, quote, "The cliché is they [psychopaths] are all in prison, but they're all over."

If you've been looking for an excuse to buy a Rolex, here you go:  You're going to need it to save your LIFE one day.


Jacques Cousteau's grandson is an explorer and environmentalist named Philippe Cousteau.  He's constantly traveling the world.  And he says his best tip for staying SAFE when you're overseas is . . . wearing a Rolex.


Here's why.  He says that no matter where you are, everyone knows Rolexes, and knows they're expensive.  That makes it like currency.


So if you're ever in a dangerous situation, you can use it to barter to get yourself out of trouble.

Here are six ways you might be cleaning your house that are actually making it DIRTIER . . .



1.  Using the same rag around the whole house.  It just transfers dirt from the first surface and spreads it to the next one.  Instead, you should use disposable wipes or have a rag for each room that gets washed after using it.



2.  Spraying cleaner directly on a surface.  Spraying cleaner directly onto countertops, mirrors, or glass can cause a buildup of the cleaning solution, and THAT can make dirt harder to remove and cause streaking. 



Instead, spray your rag or paper towel, THEN wipe.



3.  Using a feather duster.  Feather dusters are notorious for spreading dust around rather than removing it.  A microfiber cleaning cloth is a better option.



4.  Not cleaning your vacuum.  If your vacuum filter hasn't been changed or cleaned in a while, the vacuum can't pick up as much dirt and dust as it should.  And the dirty vent could even blow back dust into the air and carpet.



5.  Putting the toilet brush back into its holder immediately.  Moisture and germs from the toilet can get trapped in the container and the brush, and those germs get rubbed back into your toilet the next time you use it. 



So let the toilet brush dry completely before you put it back in its holder.



6.  Cleaning from the ground up.  If you sweep, mop, or vacuum before cleaning everything else, dust and crumbs will just fall and get the floor dirty again.  So always clean a room from the top down and hit the floors last.
