Life is full of negotiations.  This week Darrelle Revis was in the news and it caused us to revisit a negotiation that Brendan had with him that turned out better than the news would suggest it should have (Episode: The Legend of Revis Mallort).  The classic indecent proposal is a negotiation that most of us will never be forced to have, but it always begs to question if you have a price.  We learn of a negotiation that was over before it ever began simply because one party assumed it was a done deal.  It is Girl Scout cookie season, and it just may be time for the Boy Scouts to enter negotiations with their counterparts to get some better food to sell.  At the end of the day we have internal negotiations that need to be silenced:  How long should I stare, should I eat a taco wrapped in chicken, is that they guy from the waste water plant, and ultimately only you will know who wins those negotiations.

Are you looking for a deal; well have we got one for you.  We find a cheap car that shouldn't be hiding any surprises, but mostly because the sales pitch is nothing if not honest.  It is worth noting that being honest and just saying whatever comes to your mind is not the same thing, and often yield very different results.  Using a ride sharing app because it seems like a great deal can cost you a lot more than just money if you are not careful with your login.  We learn that in Russia a lot of guys login's to their favorite site may no longer work thanks to some new laws, and while it is undoubtedly a bad deal it isn't even the worst one they passed.  At least we know of place where the value of a pizza and a keg of beer still works out to be a pretty good deal for everybody involved...well almost everybody.

America's favorite un-official holiday is always the perfect excuse to gorge yourself on foods that are normally only fit for the fair, and this year's SuperBowl was no exception.  Some of these foods only show up once a year, while other's are just the same stuff you have been eating since you were a kid now with a fancy name.  We learn of a way to cure colorblindness if only for a time, and we also discover a way to color your hair that works quite well if you put in the time.  Speaking of time it just may be time to buy one of those overpriced coolers you have been longing for.

This week we are joined by our friend Mike Jackson who throws down the gauntlet with two of the finest beers in America:  Pliny the Elder and Heady Topper.  With some known Hops haters in the room this could be an uphill battle for the favorites.  When it comes to downhill battles the PineWood Derby is where many of us learn about the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.  Some events still till this day give awards for the best Sportsman, and that isn't always a good thing.  We learn a cautionary tail about chasing the dragon, but it isn't what you are thinking.
