AI: Florida Teen is Charged with Felony Because of a Science Experiment. Fair?

Ok, ok I get it. We are all understandably on edge because of the horrible Boston bombings and we are still reeling from what feels like constant attacks on our schools with premeditated, planned attacks that have changed the way we look at the world. Kids, LITERAL KIDS are getting their hands on semiautomatic weaponry and using them to get back at a world that has somehow, in their eyes, let them... »

AI: Breast Cancer Slactivism is SO Lazy it goes on Vacation.

Apparently, it’s that time of year again! You know. That time of year where your friends annoy the crap out of you by participating in some silly social media prank disguised as awareness.

Yesterday I followed along watching the voting and ultimate selection of the new pope. I imagine a lot of folks wondered a lot of things, like I did:  Why black & white smoke?  What are they really doing in there that can’t be seen? Who thought up all those crazy hats? It’s the hat one that stuck with me once Pope New was announced. And then introduced. And then dressed in many lay... »
