Giving away the last four pack of tickets to the advanced screening of “Earth to Echo” on Tuesday, July 1st at 7 p.m. at Ward Stadium 16 - happening at 7:40 this morning!
A new Guinness World Record for largest architectural video game display has been broken. The video game of choice... tetris, of course. It was played on two sides of a 29-story skyscraper in Philadelphia.
They used hundreds of lights embedded in the glass facades of the building.
In order to play it, you have to be on a joystick from about a mile away. Geez, I just hope the joystick is cordless. Read the whole story [here].
I'm not saying you should steal cars. But if you do ... make sure you can drive stick as well as automatic transmission ... just in case. Just like if you're working valet. This week in Seattle, three teens tried to steal an elderly woman’s car at gunpoint but realized too late that none of them knew how to operate the car's stick shift. Couldn't get the car going and ended up running away... feeling totally emasculated.
This also brings up an interesting fact. Less than 10 percent of new vehicles sold in the United States have a manual transmission. If you're one of the few in traffic this morning, you must be irritated. Hands are so busy, probably can't munch on that bagel. Read the whole story [here].
Russia is in the news again. As you know, they're not known for freedom. Vodka and dancing bears, yes but freedom, not so much. So here's what they're doing now ... a new rule is being imposed on their female police officers. Their skirts are apparently getting too short. Read the whole story [here].
Here's the moral of this next story... if you're going to a foreign country ... know how it's spelled. A Washington DC couple has sued British Airways, saying the airline ruined their vacation by booking them tickets to the Caribbean island of Grenada instead of Granada, Spain. Personally I don't see what the big deal is. I'd much rather go to the Caribbean than Spain. In Spain, it's just a bunch of greasy dudes looking to feel up your girlfriend. In the Caribbean, at least it's clean Sandy beaches with sleazy yoga instructors looking to to feel up your girlfriend. See the difference a clean beach makes? Check out the rest of the story [here].
