👉This Week in Leap Day:
🐸Leap Day happens because there are really 365.2 days in a year, so to make the calendar work they add an extra day every four years. It's just like making an extra pancake to soak up all that syrup that's left on your plate.
🐸According to THIS ARTICLE, Leap Day is a chance to do so many fun things you won't be able to stand it. Fun things like: 1)Write a letter to yourself,  2)Make some frog origami, 3)Make a leap day time capsule.
🐸Leap Day Fact Sheet: 1)If you’re born on February 29, you’re known as a leper... wait, that should be “leaper”, 2)It was the ancient Egyptians who figured out the the problem with the calendar, 3)People in Greece say you shouldn't get married in a leap year, but people in Ireland think women should ask men to get married in a leap year, (so if you're superstitious, use your own judgment).

"Surgeons working close to parts of the brain that control important functions such as speech or movement routinely keep patients awake to best determine where tumor gives way to something vital."

👉Dystopian Future Watch:
If you ever have school fundraisers or the WBA (world-bettering activities) let us know! Last week we had that deal where the high school kids got to meet the Mayor and learn about politics. One of the things they get to do is debate a real issue. Last year it was banning plastic bags. We think that the high school kids have great ideas and might be our only hope for the future. If they ever cancel this program, we're doomed to a Planet of the Apes scenario.

↑pictured: it will be bad for us when the apes take over

👉Finally! If you want to be a successful YouTuber here is the formula:
=Step 1 is Interview one of the biggest comedy stars of all time while eating hot wings.
=Step 2 is keep an eye on the front door for when they deliver your millions of dollars.
Cards on Table Moment: We've been following half of this formula for years and... nothin'!

👉This Week in Dentistry:
A Health Insurance place in the States (Delta Dental) has this thing called the Tooth Fairy Index that shows how much money kids are getting for teeth. Average payout: over 4 bucks.
Notes:
-I just went to the dentist the other day, and they charge substantially more than $4 for tooth extraction.
-Q: When the dentist has a fight with their husband moments before you appointment, is it possible that they take it out on you? Asking for a friend.

👉This Week in Corporate Espionage:
Flywheel got in trouble for corporate espionage the other day. Flywheel makes exercise bikes and they had a plan to steal technology from Peloton (another, fancy exercise bike maker.)
Notes:
-It was a battle over home exercise bikes that are hooked to the internet.
-It came out in court that Flywheel had a secret plan that, for our purposes, we're calling Operation: Crush Peloton and Burn them to the Ground.
-That did not go as planned... Flywheel lost, Peloton won.
-If you have one of the Flywheel virtual bikes, they are bricked... you're supposed to trade it in for a Peloton.

Here at the Scotty and Tony Show, we like to keep up-to-date on the end of the world. Things like:
-When will the world end?
-Do I have time to order a pizza before the end of the world, or should I just hit the Drive-thru?
-Is there any way to avoid the end of the world?
Armageddon Fact Sheet:
🌠There's an asteroid named 99942 Apophis that is coming our way (next pass is in April of 2029.)
🌠It might get pulled into the earth (thanks a LOT, gravity. #sarcasm)
🌠Researchers at MIT are on the case. The key is deflection.
*Deflection is also the key to not getting in trouble at work. 
Example: "Yes, I was late for my shift, but... is that a trash can fire over there?" (lights trash can fire, leaves.) #deflection
🌠NASA has a plan that uses a rocket to deflect an asteroid like shooting pool ("The basic physics principle is sort of like playing billiards,")
🌠Read the whole MIT paper HERE.
