Dolphin Needs a Phake Phlipper

I guess Phlorida's done playing with the manitees and they've moved on to dolphins.
Winter, a 3-month-old baby dolphin, got caught in some phishing line. As she struggled to get away, it tightened around her tail and cut off the blood supply to her tail. Long story short: it fell off and she needs a new one.

Anyone have one handy?

If not, they're going to spend $100,000+ to make a prosthetic one for her. Maybe you can lend your sculpting skills and get your cut of the money!!!

Pluto's Identity Crisis...and Fluffy

Pluto AGAIN is in the news...the poor thing has been demoted yet again. Now, instead of calling it a dwarf planet, they are classifying it as an asteroid and taking away its name! No more "Pluto" - it is now just a number. 134340, to be exact. That's like Americans' names being replaced by their Social Security numbers.

In an attempt to make Pluto feel better about the demotion, they've added 2,224 new objects to Pluto's class. Yes, Pluto, they don't want you to feel that you're all alone in your minor planet/asteroid/comet class.

Great non-Pluto news, though! They've discovered a fluffy planet! Just what the universe needs right now. With all of the harsh name-calling that's going on amongst the astrophysicists, they were missing the "fluffy" and "puffy" words. This should bring balance to the force...

Popcorn Cereal Bowl

SO...while looking for a new, exciting recipe to try, I came across one called "Popcorn Cereal Bowl." I thought this would be kinda cool, a bowl made out of popcorn that you could fill with some other snack. Nice idea, good conversation piece. Right? WRONG.

This is the recipe.

Any thoughts? I think that to call this a "recipe" is a misnomer...tricking me into clicking on the stupid link...all intrigued and what not.


Okay. All better now.

Back to searching.

Homework Help

Are your kids unmotivated when it comes to homework? Why not try what this mom did: Offer to SMOKE POT with your teenage child if they finish their homework!

Here's the story. At least she didn't lie in court...she pled guilty to all charges. Maybe she'll smoke with the attendees of her sentencing to get him to let her off the hook!
