Bonehead Of The Day:
If you're wanted man, you should drive carefully. A detective was stopped in traffic in Spokane, Washington when he was hit was from behind. When he got out to assess the situation, he identified the driver as 24-year-old Roman I. Ryakhovskaya who happens to be wanted on warrants for driving under the influence, and domestic violence. While police are at it, he might be cited for driving with a suspended license and for following too close. Source: Spokesman-Review
And Now The Worlds Most Expensive Hot Dog
Have a hundred dollars and a taste for backyard BBQ food? You're in luck. Vancouver-based restaurant Dougie Dog has created the most expensive hotdog.
The dog is soaked in $2-thousand vintage Cognac, fried in truffle oil, then dipped with Kobe beef, fresh lobster, and the restaurant's signature sauce. If you want to stop buy and try the dish, you'll have to order it 12 hours in advance. Since the meal was first offered in 2012, over a thousand people have coughed up the money to buy it, according to TheDrinksBusiness.
The so called "Dragon Dog" has officially been inducted into the Guinness World Records book this week.
Cellphones Have Ruined Everything
While none of us can imagine a world without cellphones, that’s not to say they are having a positive impact on our lives. And that’s truly the case for those under twenty-five. According to a new study that looked at how the digital age has disrupted society, young people today are nothing like their counterparts ten years ago.
Just how important has technology become to the younger generation? A whopping 74 percent of 16-24-year-olds say they need to have their phones with them at all times. Not only that, they are obsessive about them, and feel anxious when they don’t have their phones on them.
Cellphones are also responsible for an increase in narcissism, since half of those polled say they’ve posted things on social media specifically to get a certain reaction from friends. And the things they post aren’t necessarily the truth, with a third (the majority of which were women) admitting to lying or exaggerating on status updates.
And let’s talk about manners and etiquette. Knowing people today, it’s not surprising that two thirds of people say they check their phones when there is a break in a conversation with friends or colleagues. But even worse, 79 percent think it’s okay to use their phones on the toilet, and 81 percent ignore quiet zones on things like a train or in a library. Anyone who has gone to a movie these days can tell you that is not shocking at all.
