Bonehead Of The Day

One hundred one students and eight chaperones were kicked off an early morning AirTran flight before its scheduled departure Monday from New York to Atlanta.

The controversy now pits the airline against an Orthodox Jewish high school

The airline claims that the group of "non-compliant passengers" would not stay seated, and some were using their mobile devices after being asked not to.

When the students wouldn't comply with requests from the flight crew, including the captain, they were asked to leave the plane, delaying the flight for 45 minutes.

Students and chaperones from the Brooklyn-based school said the flight crew overreacted to the teenagers who were looking forward to visiting Six Flags and rafting, among other activities.

The Latest Beauty Trend:  Showering Once A Week!

The latest beauty trend is called a "cleaning reduction":   The practice includes limiting your showers to once a week.

Using the argument that washing too often takes natural oils away from your body, participants wash their hands regularly but keep their bodies out of the shower to hold on to oils and "good bugs."

Options like dry shampoos exist for cleaning up without getting wet and the same can be true for a can of deodorant.

Showering every day has only become a common practice in the last century - and some green groups are encouraging the practice in an effort to save water as well.

Some famous celebs have jumped on the wagon - including Jessica Simpson and Prince Harry. The Prince admitted that he didn't wash his hair for two years - and only used dry shampoo.

A case of 36 Breast Milk Lollipops costs $58.

A New Way For Men To Remember Their Anniversary

 

The Remember Ring resembles a normal ring from the outside, but inside uses Hot Spot technology to heat itself up.

Every hour the piece of metal gets hotter and hotter for 10 seconds, continuing to warm until, at 120ºF, it becomes impossible to ignore, reminding you that a special day is around the corner.

Fitted with a battery-charged micro-chip clock that converts heat in your hand into electricity, manufacturers promise the ring is maintenance free and will never switch off.

According to Alaska Jewelry:  "Just specify your anniversary date when you order, and we'll program your ring for you. Set it and forget it-until your anniversary!'

The ring costs $760, has a lifelong warranty and comes in seven styles available in 14 carat white and yellow gold in men's sizes 10 to 13.

BAD NEWS:  It is still a concept product.
