TOM BRADY is doing an autograph signing event with a memorabilia company next month, and it’s really only for hardcore collectors . . . because the prices are pretty outrageous.
For example, he’ll sign a football for $1,000 . . . or a “game-day style jersey” for $1,200. Of course, you can’t actually buy the jersey he wore during the Super Bowl . . . because it’s still M.I.A. And also, you’d need to be OPRAH for that to be in your price range.
Brady will sign a photo for $850 . . . and if you want him to add “5x SB Champ,” that’ll cost you an extra $400. And he’ll also add a 20-character personalization for an additional $500.
So for $1,750, you can get an autographed photo that says ‘To Matt Ryan, Love Tom Brady, 5x SB Champ.’
Or for $1,500, you can theoretically get a signed football that says ‘Check the inflation. -Tom Brady.’ And that just might be worth it.
We found a list online of everyday things you’ve probably never thought about. But they all have a purpose. Here are five we liked . . .
1. The hole in the top of a pen cap. It’s not some weird engineering thing that keeps it from drying out. It just makes the cap less of a hazard for little kids by keeping their airway open if they choke on it.
2. Sometimes when you buy nice clothes, there’s an extra piece of fabric in one of the pockets. It’s not there in case you need to make a patch. It’s there so you can test laundry detergent on it.
3. The little “fifth pocket” in your jeans was originally there to hold a pocket watch. And the metal rivets prevent the seams from ripping.
4. On a measuring tape, there’s usually a tiny hole in the hook at the end. It’s there so you can hook it onto a nail or a screw. And the bottom of the hook usually has little teeth, so you can use it to mark drywall while you’re measuring.
5. There’s a soft plastic disc under the lid of a two-liter soda bottle. Even if you take it out, the bottle might not leak. But it has to be there to make it airtight. Otherwise it would go flat a lot faster.
It’s really amazing how much of an out-of-control beast our healthcare system has become after decades and decades of running totally unchecked.
A couple in Utah had a baby a few weeks ago, and the guy just posted a copy of their hospital bill on Reddit . . . that showed a $39.35 charge for, quote, “skin to skin after C-sec.”
In other words, they were charged 40 bucks to hold their son after he was born.
How can the hospital possibly think that’s a reasonable charge?
A labor and delivery nurse posted a response to explain it: When a baby is born with a c-section in the operating room and the parents hold them right away, an extra nurse has to stay and monitor the baby to make sure they’re okay.
And while that may be true, the consensus online is that it’s still a ridiculous thing to see on a hospital bill.
A psychology teacher in California recently gave students a list of 101 ways to de-stress their lives. Then one of them posted it online, and it’s going viral.
Some of the stuff on the list are bigger goals, like “do everything in moderation.” And some are more specific, like “make extra keys.” Here are ten more we liked . . .
1. Get up 15 minutes earlier. But make sure you get enough sleep.
2. Don’t rely on your memory. Write stuff down if you need to remember it.
3. Say “no” more often. Meaning don’t overcommit to stuff.
4. Simplify your meals. You don’t need everything to be gourmet and complicated.
5. Break up large tasks into smaller tasks.
6. Stop trying to “fix” other people.
7. Look up at the stars. It helps you put things in perspective.
8. Pay attention to your breathing, and stretch. Which is kind of what yoga is.
9. Strive for excellence, but NOT perfection.
10. Freely praise other people. It’ll make you feel better about YOURSELF too.
