This looks like a singularly great idea, that l can in no way imagine backfiring horribly. "Oh, your fly's undone.." <ssshikk>

Ugh, ticks are so creepy. I went tromping around in some undeveloped land in Florida one day when I was little and when I came back, I found them in my jacket, 1 behind my ear, and a few in my stuffed animals later.

Why are Zebras stripped? I can almost guarantee the reason presented is not the one you think..
 
The riddle of zebras’ stripes -- Why zebras have black and white stripes is a question that has intrigued scientists and spectators for centuries. A research team led by UC Davis, has now examined this riddle (in a very systematic way)... http://bit.ly/1kucSGU

"House of Horrors"

The beauty of its appearance belies the fact that, for 12 years, this house was home to America's most prolific killer.  Jessica Fletcher dispatched friends, family and neighbors at such a pace that the small town of Cabot Cove had a murder rate 50% higher than Honduras, then the worlds most dangerous country.  Of course, her real genius lay in devising elaborate "whodunnits" such that each and every time she was able to pin the blame on some unsuspecting patsy...

Scientists can't find 80% of intergalactic light sources. Have already checked behind the couch, but not yet asked spouses where they think it is..
There's 400 percent more light in intergalactic space than sources could produce, say researchers. Could dark matter be the cause?

Gun massacres are almost uniquely American. Hmm, is there anything, anything at all, that might be related and is also almost uniquely American?
Young men see Judd Apatow movies in other countries, too. It’s primarily in the U.S. that they commit mass murder.

Just when you thought every 'Star Wars' crossover had been done, I give you 'Lego Star Wars Friends'. I'm assured the girl in front (on horseback, with the bazooka) is the leader. BTW, she hasn't been described as 'pushy' or 'bossy' once. (Then again, she's leading the resistance, not editing the NYT)

Hmm. Is this lawsuit ridiculous? Weeell, the amount being sought is worth more than "the Sun's weight in platinum".

Ah that's horse racing for you. Apparently "Seattle Explorer" failed to finish after tripping over 'Vulnerable Flash'. Backers were disappointed as it's times have been improving since other horses entered the race. #Chrome
 
California Chrome made it look easy, pulling away down the stretch to win the 140th Kentucky Derby by 1 3/4 lengths.

"...surprising Abrams would hire 11 guys and two girls to inhabit a galaxy far, far away. Sci-fi allows people to imagine any future they want—but for now, it appears, we're still imaginingSmurf village." 
 
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... there was a gender gap. http://theatln.tc/QWtcaT
Little is known about newcomer Daisy Ridley, but today's news hints that Episode VII may not do much to improve the old films' famous gender gap.
