683: Mutant Plants, Metal Coke, & Manly Cars


Show Notes

Today we find out about a type of plant that knows how to count (???), but its plant cousin is a dummy that doesn’t know how (so Susie thinks it’s going to be a goner). Hear about a documentary that Sarah participated in, but she ended up on the cutting room floor. We discuss ways that humans recover from shame, embarrassment, and, well, being human. Sarah explains why McDonald’s Coca-Cola tastes better than other Coke. We learn about a study that determined whether men with smaller penises really do prefer flashy sports cars. We discuss a study that found that people who have trouble sleeping are far more likely to believe in the paranormal (e.g. aliens, ghosts, demons), and the theories for why that might be. Plus, we talk about “fubbing,” which is snubbing someone by looking at your phone, and why it’s having a huge impact on relationships.
