Even stacked together in a jar, all those pennies you have are fairly worthless. However, they may soon become collectors’ items.
Canada, our neighbor to the North, has just eliminated the penny in their latest federal budget, following the example of nations like Australia and New Zealand. The Canadian national mint will stop producing the one-cent coin over the next six months, and businesses have been asked to return pennies to be melted down.
We thought it was a joke too, but apparently the Great White North is serious:
A video of a man wearing an awesome Batman suit whose black Lamborghini was pulled over in Maryland for not having proper tags went viral last week. And why wouldn’t it?
Well, it turns out the man behind the mask isn’t really Bruce Wayne, despite having a couple hundred grand to blow on a fine Italian sports cars. But Lenny B. Robinson, a 48-year-old businessman from Baltimore County, is a hero in his own right.
It’s one thing when Gwyneth Paltrow names her child Apple, or M.I.A names her’s Ikhyd. Those celebrities have the resources to deal with the problems that can arise when a child is given an odd name. However, experts are increasingly seeing ‘naming regret” among normal folks who give their babies not so normal names.
Getting compared to Bart Simpson is the ultimate compliment for any pint-sized skateboarder. But it’s a compliment that 8-year old Schaeffer McLean, who’s been dubbed “The Real Life Bart Simpson” has certainly earned.
Sometimes during sporting events the most interesting action takes place in the crowd. That goes double for when the highly danceable song ‘Sexy And I Know It’ is played. Watch one young hockey fan use LMFAO’s ode to self-confidence to really get the Rogers Arena in Vancouver going.
For its most recent digital short, ‘Saturday Night Live’ decided to go back to the 70s. While it was a glorious time when all races and sexes were prone to wearing afros, Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig ended up using it to create one of the most creepy save the date wedding invites ever.
The world record for the fastest-solved Rubik’s Cube is 5.66 seconds, set last year by Feliks Zemdegs. When you see a speedcuber like Zemdegs do his thing, you realize that he is approaching the puzzle in an entirely different way than you would.
That goes double for watching Marcell Endrey, who just set the world record for finishing a Rubik’s Cube blindfolded, which is now 28.8 seconds. Watch Endrey complete this remarkable feat at this week’s Zonhoven Open.
Earlier this week, we told you the only thing you really need to know about the recently announced cast of ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ And that would be that Jaleel White (or should we say Steve Urkel) is a shoe-in for this season’s title.
However, Jimmy Kimmel still felt the need to comment further. So he ran a segment spoofing some of the season 14 picks.
If you happen to be a newscaster who isn’t so sure of the material you’re supposed to read, one way of limiting mistakes is concentrating very hard on the Teleprompter. Kara Manelli of WUFT in Gainesville, Florida displays this technique to a T as she finishes a story about a student housing lottery. She’s concentrating so hard, she doesn’t notice the woman behind her awkwardly trying to hide from the camera.
