May 12, 2010 - The Brits' Messy Situation

Today's BIG news!
1. david cameron prime minster
The Brits swore in their newest Prime Minister yesterday, but apparently that means just about nothing, depending on who you ask. If you ask me, I really have no idea. I'd go ask the Queen.

2. oil spill senate hearings
Apparently, this is how we do things these days: big corporation (or baseball player) does something wrong, goes in front of Senate, gets yelled at, says it wasn't their fault. The results, however, are, wait, I meant nonexistent.

3. beau biden stroke
Joe Biden's eldest son suffered a mild stroke yesterday. While he should be just fine, Tea Partiers say Obamacare is to blame for the stroke.

4. sec inquiry stock market drop
The SEC investigation into last Thursday's huge and sudden drop in US stock markets appears to be focused on one trader. I assume it was a guy who had just found out his wife had left him for a guy named Dow Jones.

5. erica blasberg lpga death
The biggest news coming out of the LPGA these days is the sudden mysterious death of one of its young stars, Erica Blasberg. Actually, that is really the only news coming from the LPGA, but still, a very sad story nonetheless...

Now drop that FRESH knowledge!
1. worst sunburns ever!
Admit it, there is something strangely humorous about a good sunburn, as long as it is on someone else.

2. drew peterson's harley ebay
Ever dreamed of owning a motorcycle formerly owned by an alleged wife-killer? Really? That's kinda weird.

3. home genetic tests
Now you can find out if you are genetically predisposed to Alzheimer's Disease in the privacy of your own home. Can't really do much beyond that, but at least you'll know.

4. family sinkhole in quebec
Don't worry, that family that was missing in the giant sinkhole in Quebec has been found. Which is good, because I can't imagine a worse place to be stuck in a giant sinkhole.

5. ken griffey napping crying
First Ken Griffey, Jr. was caught napping in the clubhouse, then he said it wasn't true, and cried in front of his team. Say what you will about Barry Bonds, but he would never do any of that...although, he might have been busy doing steroids.
