As they do every day on “The Best Show Ever?” they got to see What’s Brewing With Jen? Jen Scordo reported on 3 weird, interesting, and funny news stories. So what was brewing with Jen today? She talked about Aaron Rodgers crediting a psychedelic experience for his success, someone roasting marshmallows with a active volcano, and someone finding an unexpected friend in a shark.
Aaron Rodgers Credits Psychadelic Experience For His Success Last Year
Aaron Rodgers has won two straight MVPs. But he is giving credit to something unusual for leading to that success. Aaron Rodgers said a trip to South America is the source. When he traveled there before the 2020 season, he had a psychedelic experience thanks to the ayahuasca plant.
“I had a magical experience with the sensation of feeling a hundred different hands on my body imparting a blessing of love and forgiveness for myself and gratitude for this life from what seemed to be my ancestors.”
The Best Show Ever crew’s takeaway from this is that Aaron Rodgers is a weirdo. Tyrone said there is no chance he would take it, but Jen was open to the idea.
Man Makes Friends With A Shark
Sharks can get a bad rap. The movie Jaws hurt their reputation a lot. But one man is trying to change that. A Floridian diver claims to have befriended a 15ft Tiger Shark. He claims after 20 years of removing hooks from the sharks mouth, he has become friends with her, with her recognizing him and even communicating with him.
“The affection is hands-on, rubbing her head, and I usually use a hand signal which is rubbing my thumb to my fingertips and the shark swims directly towards me.”
Ricky’s response was there is a reason he doesn’t go into water that isn’t clear.
Man Uses Active Volcano To Roast A Marshmallow
One tourist in Iceland found an unusual and ill-advised way to roast a marshmallow. Mount Fagradalsfjall erupted there on Wednesday. And this man took the opportunity to use the flowing lava to roast a marshmallow. Take note that the USGS (United States Geological Survey) advises against this. Not only is it dangerous to be this close to active lava because of the heat, but the fumes from it can be dangerous to inhale. Don’t do it.
Erm...we're going to have to say no, that's not safe. (Please don't try!) If the vent is emitting a lot of SO2 or H2S, they would taste BAD. And if you add sulfuric acid (in vog, for example) to sugar, you get a pretty spectacular reaction.— USGS Volcanoes🌋 (@USGSVolcanoes) May 29, 2018
Hunter said he is intrigued by it. The rest of the crew think he’s dumb.
