A New Study Found Daylight Saving Time Is Harder on Night Owls
It’s weird to put this study out four months AFTER we shifted the clocks. But a new study at the University of Michigan found moving to Daylight Saving Time in March was probably a lot harder if you’re a NIGHT OWL.
Researchers looked at how long it took different people to adjust to waking up an hour earlier. Half were night owls, and half were early birds. And they found it takes significantly longer for night owls to adjust.
Morning people were back to normal in about three days . . . while night owls took over a week to feel right again. But when we “fall back” in November, they say it won’t matter what you are. Morning people and night owls adjust at about the same rate.
The Dumbest Things Doctors Have Heard from Patients
Who do you trust more? Your doctor . . . or whatever Google spits out when you type, “My toe hurts. Am I DYING?” Someone on Reddit asked doctors to name the dumbest things they’ve heard from patients who decided to be their OWN doctor. Here are a few highlights . . .
1. A guy showed up to the E.R. with a minor cut, and there was red powder all over his hand. It turned out he put paprika on it to “stop the bleeding.”
2. A lady called her doctor to ask if her hemorrhoid cream would still work on vacation . . . because she read you’re only supposed to apply it “locally.”
3. Someone had a cut that was seriously infected. It turned out they’d rubbed dirt in it, because they heard it would stimulate their immune response.
4. A doctor mentioned that his back was hurting . . . and the person he was talking to immediately diagnosed HIM with “spine cancer.” They were wrong.
5. (Careful) A woman read that drinking your own PEE was a good idea . . . then ONLY drank that, and ended up in the hospital with kidney issues.
6. A baby had really bad diaper rash, because the mom had been pouring water into new diapers before putting them on. She said she thought you were supposed to . . . because diaper ads always show people pouring liquids in them.

Yesterday I mentioned 56 year old Dr. Dre will be paying more than $3.5 million a year in spousal support to his ex-wife 51 year old Nicole Young.

The agreement, which is consistent with the couple’s prenuptial agreement, will be set in place until Nicole remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, either of them dies or “until further order of the Court.” Nicole and her lawyers were trying for $2 million a month.

HBO announced that Curb Your Enthusiasm would be getting an eleventh season in late June 2020. David’s response? “Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are. One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve.” According to David’s Curb co-star Jeff Garlin, fans shouldn’t expect too many more seasons of the largely improvised comedy. In June, Garlin predicted that, “We could maybe do one more [season], maybe. You know, Larry is in his 70s.” Curb Your Enthusiasm’s 11th season will debut by the end of the year.
What is the OG celebrity reality show? It’s been almost 20 years since “The Surreal Life” premiered, jamming random collections of B-list and lower celebrities into a house to see what kind of insanity would ensue.

Vanilla Ice infuriating Gary Coleman by lifting him up . . .And, of course, Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen fornicating. The show ran for six seasons, until 2006. And now it’s BACK.

One day after announcing he was stepping away from baseball, Yermín Mercedes was back with the Chicago White Sox’s Triple-A affiliate yesterday. The White Sox confirmed Thursday that Mercedes, the surprising rookie who carried the team with his booming bat early in the season and then got sent to the minors after a prolonged slump, was in uniform for the Charlotte Knights’ 5-3 loss to the Durham Bulls. Mercedes, who did not play Thursday, also apologized in an Instagram post. HE WROTE: “I’m never going to give up. I spent 10 years in the minor league and I have always understood that this is a big and long process but the talent that I have shown speaks for itself. I owe myself to my family, my organization and my fans. I asked again for forgiveness if I have failed them. Baseball is in my blood … and I thank God for guiding me to the right path and to make the correct decision. I love everyone. I’m back.”
Nelson Cruz packed up his big bat and joined a contender. The Tampa Bay Rays acquired Cruz, one of baseball’s most proven sluggers, in a four-player trade with the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night. Moments before opening a four-game series at Cleveland, the Rays, who entered the night just one game behind first-place Boston in the American League East, announced they got Cruz and a minor leaguer from Minnesota in exchange for 2 minor league right-handers. Cruz, 41, is a seven-time All-Star with 436 career homers and 1,202 RBIs. He’ll bring some needed pop to Tampa Bay’s lineup and should help the Rays against left-handers.

The NFL announced Thursday it will not allow games to be rescheduled in 2021 in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak. The league’s new policy was announced in a memo sent to all 32 teams. If a team is forced to cancel a game due to COVID-19 infections among its non-vaccinated players, said the team will likely have to forfeit the contest. Organizations that cause cancelations in 2021 could also face discipline from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. COVID-19 forced a number of postponements during the 2020 season, though all teams played the entire 16-game schedule. There were no postponements in the playoffs, and Super Bowl was held as scheduled on Feb. 7. The 2021 season is slated to begin on Thursday, Sept. 9 when the Buccaneers host the Cowboys.
