I just have to start out with this whole Harold Camping thing -- have you heard?

The world is supposed to end on Saturday. 

That's right! Only 3 days left to shop! Spend it all up, ladies!

Seriously though, here are a few posts I've read about this elderly predictor of end times:
New York Magazine had an interview/conversation with Mr. Camping.
Rev. Chuck Betters hosted Camping once for a debate on his end-times predictions. He gives a good assessment of the man.
Time also has a simple article explaining Camping's math. It gives Scripture verses that are pertinent to his "formula."

Enough Camping. I personally think the man is a false prophet. The end times are supposed to be full of them.

And now on to ... Meat Glue!  I bet you didn't know about meat glue! If you ever eat meat in restaurants, you're eating meat glue. Simply put, it allows butchers to "glue" together smaller, inferior cuts of meat (think, stew meat), into larger, shaped cuts (think, filet mignon). Not only is it deceptive, it's also unhealthy.
Here's a video of how it works.
Here's a longer video, which I haven't watched all of yet, that looks more scientific, and interesting.


Obamacare Waivers -- they're everywhere! A total of 1372 one-year waivers have been given to companies.
The latest request? Nursing homes.

World had another worrying article about how higher education in the US is way overpriced.  Causing a little anxiety for this mom of college kids.

Where would you put honey bees, in a big city? Read this.

Panera Bread succeeds with a pay-what-you-like store. Can you believe this works? It makes me happy.

Netflix is the wave of the future. If you don't know this yet, you're behind :)


The Antikythera Mechanism. An ancient machine, found by divers. Man's oldest computer. Interesting stuff.
