Man it and -- immoral they weakened while there's no specific huge event I'm aware of the Greek mess that was going out. We have by -- countries who -- and Matt sentiments of those people decide to stay in new war. By now as a specific huge event but no time like to present -- -- all admired kick and I will be. You're kicking -- the holiday weekend. As well do it in the oil and really celebrate the freedoms that we have to you. Raoul. -- you -- you to rubber on the growth ideally eco.

Now you know that doctors will tell you yes that's a very bad idea I'm being told that over and over again because. Grounded meets. As nearly every bit of -- exposed to air at some point that you could have. Bacteria these could have disease in that -- if you don't cook it brown all the way through 260. Degrees and this year running the risk of food points only Carl lie and perhaps god that can kill you. That does kill healthy people every year now more likely to -- very young and older people with other underlying health problems. There's ready why your major burger chain's year McDonald's burger king and alike never that I know of survey anything. That has anything Pinkett and now in fact even most of here. Independent burger places now. Will not. Media requests for anything less than medium well all burgers are cooked medium well if you want it well done you can that. But it's yet to be. No more pain. But nonetheless when you cook it yourself you're welcome to take that change you reject your chest and and you mentioned this before one time it's that this is not applied to a stake. Now I don't know not the problem with the state the inside of a -- is never touched the air there's no way -- lies in the scenario you have to brown on the outside. Tuesday. So my question dealers you do it anyway. What other risky behaviors do you take that's my question for our audience to act mandates that idiots ebony do you eat your burgers career. Or medium where. Knowing that there's a risk involved what else you do knowing that hey this could be bad for me this could kill me. This could be a really bad idea but I do it anyway. What decisions you make in life that I like it. The doctors the authorities now experts to tell you that don't do it. I'm -- do it anyway I'd say smoking would be an obvious one drinking may be too much. Not to little tutoring keys today the doctors say Euro carry. That's just a couple.

In about twenty minutes here on WW some great text messages about things we choose to do that we know -- dangerous coming up right after this. I want person Texas today 7870. That they eat raw cookie go Sheldon -- patrol says he's raw cookie dough to. They say that's supposed to do that because it does have raw eggs and you shouldn't eat raw or runny eggs either that can also give you food poisoning. Him you do it anyway. Text messages come up 36 minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL first news on this may 26. 2014. It is memorial. Monday yes and a happy Memorial Day out you reviewers happy because we are able to celebrate our freedoms. Because so many men and women -- paid the ultimate price pleased at one moment today. Just take a second and if you have kids to explain to them that. We are celebrating because. So many Americans died in the line of duty protecting our freedoms and making -- like this possible. We can do what we want and enjoy from most people a day up not for you and I know. We do not have a day off but nonetheless we ahead inspired conversation earlier. About how you like York and hamburgers still ripping he has read it -- all agree. And you like it. He or read them in the middle of that taste better that way but you know it's not healthy yeah there is that danger that you could get a serious food poisoning when you get. The burger you know it's great from top to bottom menu -- into it and it's just not the same reason just does not other people are taxing task to ask them what things you do that you know are on safe or dangerous you do them anyway. One person says I don't -- regular up not heartless I stand on top of a twelve foot latter into -- war. You know it does tell you that tops that is not a -- you shouldn't stand. If you gotta get up a little higher yeah not youngest around that time down the president's I love raw oysters. Who cares if -- Well if you don't have an immune deficiency usually oysters until you -- in bad -- now but you know there's a lot of things that we except the risks when we did we know some of these things. Are just not a good idea. Or that there is danger involved but at the danger that we're willing to accept the risk were willing to take. -- -- There you go other people eating raw cookie you know one person plays tackle football with no -- and I did that in college -- -- especially every -- -- -- went to school mr. are sure if it snowed we all went out there and we played that hat status and tackle football and wouldn't Wear helmets and pads or any thing that we were not the amazing athletes that those who play for real. You know we couldn't inflict the kind of know -- it's still not safe -- and I say. The people noting that they drive with a vacated a car and that is amongst the -- dangerous activity you can ever did. Is getting -- car. In terms of unnatural deaths. Your prime more likely to die in a car than just about anywhere -- and run a red light while you're out yeah what is with that why you more people who run red lights today than any other day of the year the experts don't seem to really now. Is it because I'm presuming that traffic may be a little you know it's lighters and you figure out this sneak through yeah -- You maybe that's it or maybe you're not paying as much attention. Now maybe the opportunity is there like lipstick or just have to drive -- -- -- and every -- get to work. I set my Saddam -- my but that's all I spent set my cruise control 139. Miles per hour so you don't get the lights flashing on -- well also because the way the lights -- -- -- if I said if -- take off from the superdome. And set hikers at 39 miles an hour I will only have to stop one on -- there and hear it for reporters as he closed down the river. Obvious the -- the lights of times plus you don't get a ticket and he going nine over so it's 44. So I don't get a speeding ticket and it out hit as many red lights by. It's very easy if I wasn't paying attention to run a red light. Coming down borders every single morning yeah I think maybe that's at the white traffic makes it more likely because of the heavy traffic it's harder to -- the wrestler is gonna -- this. Now that's going to be. At least part of -- I don't know but not the -- really don't know why do more people -- red -- to Memorial Day. Than any other day of the year is because of drinking is it because of the light -- make what is it I don't. We you know it's a back. And if you wanna read more about that down and says that posted -- -- -- well coming up we'll talk about twenty minutes of our first news Chris Miller alternative it.

I don't want the right to make it grow by Sami it's needed rain and I have little you -- of that argument another that's where today you could see a pop up shower here that most of a woman. The better chances that if you're heading up to Baton Rouge or Lafayette itself likely scenario that seems to be the the -- better chances shower. West of us -- over. So -- came by denied of that we get that 40% need to them. Yeah that's finding if you go to the beach to baby had the Mississippi coastline or something things are stoke -- pretty good up there is of course it was tape forget that's on screen is Baltic wanna get some burns them here.

I don't know that I've ever introduced you before to -- why would people file oh the honor and pleasure of diving into that with a yes I'm Obama. Well now you do congratulations. And we something we like to do here on the early edition of -- WL prisoners the headline is pants this driver. Says man zillion irritated skin. Well -- you know demand -- is. For all of that is well wanted to ask probably not a Brazilian waxes what they call on lady it's. Where are you pretty much wax every single piece of your Expos game. And rip their hair out by the truth except -- your head. Everything really below the neck is all lacks the learning how can we are going to too much detail right now that but this 24 year old man. Told a Washington State troopers that he was not wearing pants as he drove. Because he had recently received a body wax and he said the man zillion. Hair removal. In his -- irritate his skin so he is tracking without. Oh wow really. You witness called police after seeing the man exposing himself he was arrested on suspicion. Of indecent exposure apparently about time the cops. Got him pulled over he did have underpants on. But. Earlier the witness at that now he -- trying to stick to close that's a great site to start -- One. Young man. Billions that's what they're on the numbers he gets Andy what is wrong with people -- I'll ask you this -- we've been -- discussion all hour about things we choose to do that we know or maybe not the healthiest things that we could possibly be David Blake likes to eat is hamburgers rare. Or medium rare still dripping in red. Do. So we've been asking people is -- something you do that you know probably is not the healthiest activity or may involve risks that you do it anyway. Anything leap to mind for you. The you know hey maybe I shouldn't do this but I'm gonna take that risk element that people thought the raw oysters. They stand on the top of by twelve -- latter they don't floss regularly they rip the mattress that tag off of their mattresses. Well to some of the things people are saying this thing and you can add to that list. Well I use it doubles and sweets too much maybe as -- -- riskiest thing you do if they get it you know quarter to 6 in the morning -- -- We'll let you go with that thank you Dave -- -- Object he'll be back with sports coming up next here on W. It's great text messages -- that needs and we have a wild audience this morning new people largest crazy risk takers. Out the -- it we started this conversation David Blake like -- Essentially raw hamburger and -- in -- -- looked at me he knows it's not good form but he loves the weight taste and I'll take that risk. Someone else -- and an 878 and I don't always wash my veggies before. Guy. Now your read these dirt and pesticides and whenever I was on the hands of the people who picked a man handled it and put out the grocery store your ticket is there another -- as I run with scissors that. I'll never get an episode of years. I'm running listeners and I haven't had any formal training. Another person says I ate cookie -- with out Andy well Larry you know cable that's safer. But does say hamburgers the move -- years the better. -- the person drag races 72. Quarter mile and a 180 miles per hour that is risky. Speed does another one as honest as I write a mode motorcycle noses I take part in -- risky behavior time my wife when she is wrong. The fine line between risky and -- The may be wiped it off very often. Mark Menard he's right if he's got sports scores on this Memorial Day Monday marked hey Dave. I think across a Memorial Day ago as so far so good had a great week and hundreds of great baseball in between. Building a picnic table my porch swing out in the yard and do all kinds of fun stuff in the backyard ready for summer but nonetheless you have some base. While tells the house to say how about we talk about some of that great baseball. For three straight games LSU had blown the doors off opponents offensively dropping 29 runs on the scoreboard while only giving up -- for an SEC championship game the tigers in the show off their defense of jobs and show off they did. Out Greg man in particular put on a clinic with a pair of athletic grabs in the seventh inning the second went to Indian. Crown Baltimore's big short backhanded by Greg. That -- -- the first eight. Later in the ninth with a -- -- into a two run lead congress stalemated guest appearance in the Bregman joke still up to nullify gave her -- -- Ground ball to brag but he's got to dissect. -- -- -- The tiger before a groundout in the next batter in the game ticket to a victory over Florida for their eleventh SEC championship. Next up the regional round of the College Baseball playoffs or LSU will play host for the 42 time in school history. Louisiana Lafayette at their nation leading 53 win of the year extending their Sun Belt Conference record and in doing so took on the sun belt title with a come from behind six to five win over Texas Arlington. The raging -- enough 53 and seven have won -- straight and have also earned the right to host a regional the second such opportunity ever for ULL. And the Southland Conference titles heading to ham and for the first time in twenty years. The southeastern lines in the south when tournament as the five -- for ran through the field and Hadley defeated central Arkansas nine to four. The school's first NCAA tournament berth since 1994. And finally the Oklahoma City Thunder looked like a whole new team in game three of the Western Conference finals after losing the first two games of the series by seventeen and 35 points. It was certainly the thunder who were in control back in their home turf. Cruising to a 10697. Win over the San Antonio Spurs Russell Westbrook had 46 points Toledo Casey and league MVP Kevin Durant added another 45. The credit surprise return of Serge Ibaka and were were providing huge boost -- team's defense and morale after he was supposed to have been lost for the season. I'm I'm mark -- and -- early look at sports. My 53 Dave John mark and are hanging out with -- on your radio so we started this conversation half an hour ago now wanna completed so we have. The southeastern Lyons and mark in any region on the LSU tigers reach WL. Lafayette region to legions are in a regional. All of these regional super regionals and the college World Series double elimination. -- -- winners' -- bracket and a losers bracket which you have to say it that way about the way. The losers bracket. Which of those three teams do you think will go furthest. In a quest for a college World Series title. Well I told you earlier I think that both the LSU annual will make it through the regionals through the super regionals and into the college World Series. I think you LL make -- -- -- I didn't think that the region occasions have a better shot at winning the college World Series then views the at LSU tigers I didn't they've got 53 wins on a year to seven loss of their very hard to beat. Great lineup batting you know -- they played some good competition they've beaten LSU. But the equipment but the again the victim as -- us the reality is peaking right right and they are they have gotten really hot here and and it's going to be very interesting to do with they do as they move through the postseason thank you mark -- doctor in fifteen minutes more sports here on WWL. Several people affected -- at 877 you were talking about the concealed weapons carriers. The law the governor Jindal -- thing -- now bring their concealed. Handguns into a restaurant that serves alcohol or has the bar. On that -- out the post drank. While they're packed in so thank you for those that that is -- text messages about your risky behaviors. And your forecast after the your forecast well -- near ninety degrees everyday this week today just a 10% chance to -- 40% Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday night -- going to the early edition. WWL first news several people a -- has -- 87 -- that they that they say they eat raw -- Straight to drink like -- -- on -- That's as I -- Caesar salad dressing with raw eggs and you know they say -- of -- do that but especially pregnant women not supposed to do -- lot of people though say they brought cookie you know that has.
