Show Notes - 12/09/2012

Topics on tonight's Behind The Mike Show included:

An interview with Commander Dave Steven (USN, RET.) as he discussed with us the three major catastrophes facing mankind; Nuclear/Biological Warfare, Artificial Intelligence and Asteroids colliding with earth. He predicts that there is no End of Days scenario supported by Mayan prophecy...we believe him. To learn more about Dave and his Ressurect Trilogy novel series, check him out on the web at

Pop-Culture guru, Robert Weiner joins us again this time to discuss Christmas Pop culture by way of movies, whether they be heartwarming or slasher holiday movies are a definitive part of Christmas culture. Some of the movies mentioned: A Christmas Carol, A Christmas Story, Black Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, It's A Wonderful Life and more.

The 15 New Uses For Hair Drier

1. If you need to quickly set the icing on a cake, the air and heat of a hair dryer can quicken up the process.

2. If your cake won’t unstick from the cake pan, use your hair dryer on the bottom of the pan then invert it, it should drop right out.

3. Running an ice cream scoop under hot water helps, but you can also try using a hair dryer on the carton to soften ice cream for easy scooping.

4. Some people use pots of boiling water to quicken freezer defrosting, a hot hair dryer works even more quickly. (Be careful of puddles of water and the dryer, though.

5. Automatic ice-makers can get jammed with frozen ice, relieve that with a long blast of hot air to melt unwanted icebergs.

6. Remove contact paper from shelves by heating it with the hair dryer and gently working the edges up. Also works for bumper stickers and other rogue sticky things.

7. Use a hair dryer to dust hard-to-dust items; the air will blow the dust somewhere else, but hopefully somewhere else that is easier to dust.

8. Personally, I like my kids crayon marks on my walls, but for the rest of you: heat the crayon marks until softened, then scrub with hot water and detergent.

9. Old photo albums with magnetic pages can get stuck unstick them with a blast from the hair dryer.

10. Spot iron wrinkles by lightly dampening the area and then heating the wrinkles with your dryer.

11. Wet boots, shoes, and sneakers can take on a terrible odor if left to dry slowly alleviate that by drying them with your hair dryer.

12. Winter can bring frozen windows and locks thaw them with a hair dryer.

13. Window screens collecting dust and pollen? Blow it back to whence it came.

14. Removing bandages can hurt more than the wound, soften the adhesive with a hair dryer first to ease the rip.

15. If you have trouble keeping a hot compress hot, keep your hair dryer by you and reheat as necessary.

Bonus: For wrinkled ribbons and fabric belts, employ a curling iron to straighten them out.
