    Teenage jet stowaway lucky to be alive, medical experts say

    After some recent flying experiences, if airlines offered a non-pressurized section of the cabin, and I could pass out from hypoxia, I wouldn't have to worry about cramped seats, surly flight attendants, or the little cretin kicking my seat back. Wake me when we've landed.

    Google wants to discuss building and operating optical fiber networks, starting as early as next year, in Phoenix, Atlanta, Nashville, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Texas, Charlotte, N.C. and Portland, Ore., along with neighboring towns in those areas.


    Maybe now is a good time to see which legislators include Comcast on their campaign donation list.

    Facebook like an infectious disease, will lose 80 percent of users, says Princeton study

    Ideas, like diseases, have been shown to spread infectiously between people before eventually dying out, and have been successfully described with epidemiological model ... Idea manifesters ultimately lose interest with the idea and no longer manifest the idea, which can be thought of as the gain of “immunity” to the idea.


    It will be interesting to see what Facebook will do to try to stay relevant with a capricious user base.

    McGill getting some attention from the Chiefs at the Senior Bowl.

    by 3UteDad
    2014-01-21 08:50:34

    McGill is a really intriguing prospect. Dude is 6 feet 3 and 205 pounds and is basically a clone of Sean Smith; both are huge corners who went to Utah and are converted receivers. I have no idea if he can play but the fact the Chiefs spoke to he and Jean-Baptiste (6-3, 220) tells me their preference for big corners isn’t going to change any time soon.

    Packers to practice outside to prep for wild-card game

    The Weather Channel was predicting a high of 4 degrees during the day and a low of minus 15 at night, so it's safe to say the wild-card game between the Packers and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Lambeau Field will be a cold-weather game.


    Also interesting to note the game is not yet a sellout.

    But he has been dubbed "a fake," and his actions outraged deaf people, according to an association for the deaf community in South Africa.
