They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
I've got a phone that sometimes works and an email account that I can't remember. Best way to reach me - just COMMENT below. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
Scientists took a break from working on their cure from cancer to answer one of the most complex questions of our time: "why are wool sweaters so itchy?"
The reason, according to Johns Hopkins researchers, is a type of sensory nerve cell whose endings receive information from the skin and relay it to other nerves in the spinal cord.
Ironically the "science" used to discover this was much more complex than putting on wool sweaters and asking, "does this itch?" In one test, researchers put the tails of mic in hot water to see if they would scratch their legs. They also examined the cells that reported pain, using electricity, chili peppers, and "itch-inducing" stimulants.
