About 3 weeks ago, I opened my microwave for the 1st time and I realized something… it didn’t have a turn table. I’m like, they still make microwaves like that!?!? I believe all the microwaves my dad’s ever purchased had a turn table. By turn table, I mean there’s a dish that rotates inside when it’s microwaving so you dont have to stop midway, flip your burrito over and continue microwaving. Anyway, it looks like I’ll need to pull out my microwave from my storage room.
Kids buy lunches with scans of fingers – Rome City Schools is switching to a scanning system that lets students use their fingerprints to access their accounts. In the past, students had to punch in their pin numbers. When did we get rid of lunch cards?
Telephone telepathy — I was just thinking about you – Each person in the trials was asked to give researchers names and phone numbers of four relatives or friends. These were then called at random and told to ring the subject who had to identify the caller before answering the phone. “The hit rate was 45 percent, well above the 25 percent you would have expected,” he told the annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. “The odds against this being a chance effect are 1,000 billion to one.”
I was driving this morning and on a license plate frame of the car in front of me, the bottom said “Not A Magician”. The font on the top was smaller so I had to drive up closer to read it, and the full sentence said:
I’m A Beautician
Not A Magician

Sodium Party (from /.) – I’d read about, and heard stories about, throwing sodium into water. It’s a classic thing chemistry students do in college, and based on the reports I have been able to find on the internet, they are often drunk at the time. What do you get when you purchase 3.5lbs of solid sodium metal (~$100), have your own private lake, and an experimental mind? KABOOM! Do check out the videos and pictures he’s posted.
