This post is kind of like MythBusters, just without all the explosions

Happenings in my life (which will be explained below) got me thinking about something I’d always heard, but wasn’t sure about. So, I decided to ask The Panel about it. Here’s the question I sent out:

Is the way to a man's heart really through his stomach?

I figured this would be an interesting question for the gang to tackle. Let’s see if I was right:

New year, new resolutions?

2010 So, they tell me it’s 2010 and, since it’s 2010, we should have some New Years resolutions. But are they really worth it? That’s what I asked The Panel this week.

Here are their answers:

• Kristin: New Year's resolutions are great and useless. They make me feel better about myself, give me hope for the new year and its fun. In the back of my mind I kind of know that most of the resolutions I make just are not going to happen, but maybe that's part the problem. Self-fullfilling/self-defeating prophecy.

I hope to change that in 2010. My first resolution is to follow through. This year- well, in the past 6 months I have changed a great deal and I know that there are many more changes to come in this new year. Some for the better, but its not going to be easy. I want and need to make my resolutions stick. Starting now. Happy New Year!

• Houston: New Years resolutions are ways that we remind ourselves that life is pretty much hopeless and we are doomed to failure.

In short, they prepare us for work so we get off on the right foot every year... very useful.
