The Morning Brain Buster:
Q. 2 Billion of these are made every year, and the usually come in a 5, 10 or 15 count. What?
Bonehead Of The Day:
Bonehead of the day today comes from Sonora, California, where our idiot James Matthews was due in court on controlled substance charges. He was running behind and it was too late to catch the bus, so he did what to the Bonehead Mind was a logical thing. He visited a used car lot and stole a 2001 Mitsubishi which he proceeded to drive to the courthouse. Although he did make it to court, it was not the best idea. Cops were able to track down the vehicle using a GPS device. Our bozo now has another court appearance, this one for possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance after marijuana was found in the vehicle.
There’s Going To Be A Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel, But Not Everybody’s Happy About It
When news hit of a "Mrs.Doubtfire" sequel involving both Robin Williams and original director Chris Columbus, people got very, very excited.
Someone not so pumped? Mara Wilson. The actress who played Natalie, the youngest daughter of Williams and Sally Field in the original movie, is very clear she will have nothing to do with a sequel.
“I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now,” Wilson wrote on Twitter. “Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.” Maybe Natalie can just go to a college really, really far away?

Is Laziness Hereditary
Could laziness be in your genes? New research says 'may be.' Michael D. Roberts with the University of Missouri conducted the experiment along with Frank W. Booth. They put rats on a running wheel and picked out each one that spent more time willingly running on its wheel. The groups were kept separate – runners with runners and less active rats with their fellow couch potatoes – and allowed to breed
Afterwards, they looked at ten generations of the rodents and found a genetic predisposition to laziness. Roberts says, "Out of more than 17-thousand different genes in one part of the brain, we identified 36 genes that may play a role in predisposition to physical activity motivation."
So what does that mean? You may be able to one day blame your laziness on heredity. The results are published in the “American Journal of Physiology.”
Companies Figure If You Like Them On Facebook You Can’t Sue Them
Are you a fan of your favorite foods on Facebook? Well, you may be giving away your rights to sue them if they ever make you sick!
Basically, anyone who has received anything that could be construed as a benefit and who then wants to pursue legal action for whatever reason, will have to use informal negotiation via email or go through arbitration to seek relief. Okay, this sounds kind of shady.
General Mills seemed to go even further, suggesting that buying its products would bind consumers to those terms. Or even “liking it on Facebook.” What if I nod slightly in the general direction of a General Mills product? Does that count?
Bees Ground A Plane After They Swarm
A massive swarm of bees managed to ground a Minnesota-bound Allegiant airlines flight after first clouding the windshields and then getting sucked into the plane's engines. Passengers got a couple more hours in the Las Vegas sun on Monday thanks to the insects, but not before getting a serious in-flight fright. 'It smelled like the whole cabin was on fire,' passenger Misty Newman told WDIO. One passenger described the smell that filled the cabin as sulfur-y. Before the scene became too hellish, pilots turned the plane around and landed safely back at McCarranInternationalAirport.
Why Some People Should Not Be Allowed To Post On Facebook
Here are a few excerpts from Facebook statuses posted on The Meta Picture.com
· My teacher is so dumb, he thought the sun was a star.
· Is the Fourth of July being celebrated on the third or the fourth this year? Because the fourth is a Monday.
· I just found a phone from the 90s that has a hashtag button. Twitter wasn’t even invented back then. Why did they need a hashtag back then?
· I just learned that Africa isn’t a country.
· There is no I in happyness. (It’s a spelling joke).
What is the dumbest thing you’ve ever seen on Facebook?
Ever Get So Frustrated You Wanted To Break Something.. Well Now You Can!
It's tax season, and a new business in Boise, Idaho, is banking on customers' frustrations. Or so they say.
At Das Breakroom, you can pay to break junk: windows, keyboards, cell phones. Sure, it looks like mindless violence, but some customers say it's therapeutic.
"I was having a horrible week, and I found myself on the verge of tears," customer Lindsey Shultz told KBOI. "I was just pacing back and forth, like, 'What am I going to do? I'm so frustrated right now,' and I walked here and broke an entire box of stuff, and 10 minutes later, I felt perfect, fine."
Sounds novel, but Das Breakroom isn't the first place to adopt a cash-for-smash business model. Similar venues have popped up in Texas and San Diego over the years.
