You've heard the expression that money can't buy happiness...but the truth is more complicated than that. According to a new study in happiness research, money can to a certain extent. However, there is a limit on that as well.

it seems like we are always telling toddlers to take things out of their mouths. They hate it, but we know it's for their own good. That being said, what if your child's skin was allergic to water? It's Aquagenic urticaria and that's exactly what Ivy Angerman from Minnesota is dealing with.

There's a secret behind the counter at your neighborhood pharmacy...and it's going to drive you mad. You know that prescription you paid $20 for? How would you feel if I told you it would have been eight bucks if you paid with cash?

I finally have proof that if you wait long enough, your old clothes become high fashion. The new trend in Paris is "Dad Style." That's right, your baggy jeans, polo shirt, and track jacket is now the hot new look. Just don't expect to pay reasonable prices for the designer dad look.

I once slept in a hotel room in Nashville, Tennessee that President Barack Obama had stayed in. President George Bush also slept in that same room. For some bizarre reason, I started wondering if any of their hair had been left behind. Turns out I'm not as crazy as I thought.

Pyeongchang is in the history books and everyone is going home. This may be a surprise to you, but this is a relief to one set of athletes. I'm talking about cross country skiers and their enormous appetites. You probably didn't know this...but they have to consume over 8,000 calories a day. I'll tell you how they do it.

Trashy behavior is always funny to laugh about, but if you're looking for real trash behavior...go to rural China. We're talking far away from Bejing. There is a new trend when someone dies...and it's fairly erotic. Mourners fire strippers to "work" the funeral...and the Chinese Ministry is pretty upset about it.

Millions of us hit the couch to watch the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The performances are amazing and the incredible display of athleticism leaves us all breathless...but what happens when the lights go out? What happens is disappoint. Truly a dirty little secret.

Did you realize that you could've been in the Olympics? Just look at Elizabeth Swaney, the athlete who represented Hungary in the Freestyle Half Pipe. She's not one of the best in her sport...she's actually just a wannabe who miraculously...and shamefully, made it to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.

I'm assuming you've heard Fergie's rendition of the National Anthem at the NBA All-Star Game. Twitter had a lot of fun making fun the artistic risk she took. This anthem is not even close to being the worst. I'll prove it.

There are billions of dollars of investment capital out there if your idea is good enough. These poor billionaires have to listen to countless pitches...poor rich people. That being said, a venture capital company in Finland actually wants to hear your pitch...provided you jump through some interesting hoops...and the Baltic Sea.

The Utah house said no to the "Duty to Assist in Emergency Bill." The bill would've required you to provide reasonable assistance to a victim in distress. That reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld...

I don't want to start trouble, but when a man gets the flu...it's different. If you think I'm crazy, go talk to the British Medical Journal and Dr. Kyle Sue from Memorial Canada University. They have proven that it's possible that men have it worse than women when it comes to the common cold.

Let's talk about the Olympic Theme Music...no, not the one you are constantly hearing on KSL 5. That is not the Olympic Theme. You will hear the original team if the athletes from Russia win a gold medal. The music you hear on T.V has a much different history. Let me introduce you to Bugler's Dream, Leo Arnaud, and John Williams.

Scientists at the defense department have discovered a new way to improve memory. Their initial mission was to find ways to help veterans living with head trauma, but they discovered that electrical stimulation to a certain part of the brain can have a surprising, positive effect.

We all know the Olympics are on KSL 5...so what are the other networks doing? Well...ABC is running a special version of The Bachelor for the next two weeks and it's terrible news for world peace. You think I'm joking? Just ask North and South Korea.

The Super Bowl Halftime Show was awesome...if you were a teenage girl in 1995. It just lacked some oomph. Initially, Justin Timberlake wanted to add some pizzazz by dancing next to hologram of Prince...Thankfully, Sheila E. intervened.

Time to go back to work. For the players of the New England Patriots, that doesn't mean the same thing with every player. Tom Brady needs to get past the disappointment and Bill Bellichek is trying to figure out what went wrong. For Bernard Reedy, however, it means punching in at his other job. You won't believe the kind of work this player is involved in.

So, what did we learn from the Philadelphia Eagles victory in Super Bowl 52? Planning? Perseverance? Fortitude? No...I think our lesson comes down to the effectiveness of ice cream.

Let's get something out of the way...I'm an Eagles Fan. I've been very up front about that. Knowing that, maybe you can understand why I don't know what to do with this Tom Brady video. If you missed it, this is a video documentary where Brady kisses his 11 year old son on the lips for a little over 2 seconds...ew.

Why would anyone wake up before dawn and immediately start binge drinking? Ask the people in Punxatawney, Pennsylvania on Ground Hog Day...the dumbest holiday of the year.

How much time do you spend staring at your phone? The human body wasn't built to handle how long we sit and stare at our smartphones and we are starting to see health problems associated with this. Doctors are calling this condition "Text Neck". I'll explain why and provide a cure.

I had an important discussion with my colleagues in the newsroom about the flu...can we pass or get the flu from our dogs? With flu season at it's peak, you can't be too careful...but are our fears warranted?

The designated survivor, once again, spent the State of the Union in a classified, segregated, location. We obviously understand the importance of the designated survivor, but it was always so formal.
