Bonehead Of The Day:
A fifth grader at an elementary school in Franklin, Tennessee got a hold of an erotic book by accident.
The book was by a British author known for his children's books, but also wrote adult fiction, and somehow one of his more erotic-themed books ended up on a fifth-grade classroom bookshelf.
It was among a box of books donated to the teacher, who in turn put the books on the shelves in his classroom without evaluating them individually.
The child's parents alerted the school's principal, and an investigation took place. The teacher was not terminated but was disciplined.

This Guy Had Such A Bad Experience With Customer Support he Recorded it & Posted Online
A man's problem with Amazon got much worse because of superbad customer service.
He was worried that someone named "Brittni" was "phishing" his email address. So he contacted Amazon's customer support team through its live chat function, to ask Amazon to block an email address that appeared to be associated with his real address. Unfortunately, the Amazon worker on the other end of the chat appeared to not understand English.
He spent nearly an hour with "Farah," trying to explain the problem. She suggested deleting his own email account, resetting his password, and offering to delete his account for him.
At one point "Farah" started addressing the guys as "maam," even though he is a man.

The Latest Trend In Baby Names.. Naming Your Kid After A Duck Dynasty Star
The newest up and coming baby names are those modeled after the stars of "Duck Dynasty".
Korie and Silas are some of the up-and-comers on BabyCenter's annual baby names survey, along with other pop-culture-inspired names like George (after the royal baby), Kanye (yes, seriously), and Marnie and Shoshanna (after the 'Girls' characters).

Here's the full list of the most popular names for boys and girls:
Cool or Creapy.. Phone That Can Read Your Mind
There are several apps that can predict what you want before you do, and Google leads the way.
Google's Now, along with other intelligent personal assistant apps including Osito and Grokr can predict what a user will do next before offering relevant help and information at each step without ever being asked.
The apps use an algorithm that combines with location data, taken from the phone or tablet's GPS unit, as well as posts on social networks, email information and more to make the predictions.
Grumpy Grub.. What Foods To Eat & Avoid When in A Bad Mood
Certain key nutrients in foods can have an impact on your moods.
Stressed out? Try having whole-wheat pasta, which contains magnesium and may reduce stress responses in your body. Pair the pasta with salmon, which provides omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown these fish fats may help decrease anxiety symptoms.
Round out your meal with a leafy green salad - like kale - or other fresh fruits and veggies that are full of vitamin C, which is linked to lower levels of stress markers.
Feeling Angry? Think green. Having a cup of tea to help relax is a common for many people, but next time, make sure its green tea. Green tea contains a mood-leveling antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate. A study found that people who got the nutrient rated their moods as calmer compared to those who took a placebo.
Feeling Down? Eat breakfast! You can reap the benefits of a morning meal without cooking, just reach for your cereal bowl. Having cereal at the start of the day may contribute to an overall feeling of better wellbeing, possibly because of cereal's role in promoting good digestion.
Feeling Negative? Gorging on a tub of ice cream, a bag of potato chips or a whole pan of fudge brownies will only make you feel guilty later. This only leads to more negative feelings and will make your mood worse. Put on your favorite upbeat song. It's a zero-calorie way to instantly lift your spirits.
Feeling Unmotivated? Sipping wine and vegging out in front of the TV may sound appealing when you're battling the blahs, but it's your worst enemy on days like these. Alcohol can lower your inhibitions and lead to overeating. Instead, take a quick stroll around the block. Getting a bit of exercise can actually boost your energy, which can help you tackle your to-do list.
Feeling Sluggish? If you're struggling to make it through an afternoon at the office, your blood sugar level may be the culprit. Keep your energy up by eating fiber- and protein-filled meals and snacks that enter the bloodstream slowly. They also do a better job of controlling your hunger. Stay clear of the sweets because they're full of refined carbs and sugar that will send your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride. Also, don't overlook the value of sleep. Sleep deprivation can mess with the hormones that control your appetite and promotes cravings for more carbs and sugar.
Would You Wear A Mood Sweater?
A new sweater, called the GER mood sweater, is a wearable piece of technology that lets friends know the wearer's mood.
The sweater has technology that looks for changes in the human skin to detect what mood the wearer might be in at any given moment.
The different emotional states range from "tranquil" (green) to "ecstatic, blissful" (yellow).
The technology works by attaching sensors to the wearer's hands that are then hooked up to the collar.
But beware, the mood sweater could also show feelings that you don't want to share yet- it will also glow crimson when you are "nervous" or "in love."
One hundred of the hi-tech custom-sized garments are expected to go on sale in March.

Bonehead Of The Day:
A man in South Carolina was attacked by his SON during a fight about macaroni and cheese.
Dad told police he was assaulted by his 20-year-old son. The son lives with his dad but doesn't contribute to the household. When his dad went to make some mac and cheese for dinner, the cheese packets were missing from the box. That's when he went to tell his son to stop using all of the cheese packets.
The two exchanged a few words and when the dad walked away, his son ran after him and punched him in the face and head. The two ended up on the ground until the dad put his son in a headlock.
Cops noticed a bruise and cut on the man's face, and his son with a black eye. The dad wanted to file charges, so the son was arrested and taken away.
Christmas Shopping Burns Up To 1500 Calories!
The average person burns over 1,500 calories while shopping for Christmas.
Researchers found people burn 1,572 calories on an average shopping trip… that's nearly a whole day's worth.
And the average person will walk just under 20 miles doing their Christmas shopping.
Confirmed! Cats Don't Care
According to a kitty study... cats can recognize their owners' voices, but choose to ignore them.... and it's due to evolution.
Researchers analyzed cats responses when their owners and others called to them. The cats were much more responsive to their owners' calls.
BUT... The cats actually choose to ignore their owners because cats domesticated themselves thousands of years ago, so they weren't domesticated to take human orders like dogs.
5 Things Successful People Do Before 8am
Morning people are more productive, healthier and more active.
Here are the 5 things morning people accomplish before 8 am.
1. Exercise. It's so hard to find time to fit a work out in after the work day is done - the morning is the best time to do it.
2. Plan out their day. The best way to stay organized throughout the day is to visualize it in the morning.
3. Eat a healthy breakfast. Not just a granola bar - a balanced and healthy breakfast sets the tone for your day.
4. Meditate. Just take a few minutes in the morning to visualize your day and take time for quiet reflection.
5. Make your day top heavy. Those things you dread doing? Do them first - do the hardest things in the morning when you're more alert and the easier tasks at the end of the day.
Yes, Men Do Have Selective Hearing
Men have selective hearing... and so do women.
Researchers compiled pairs of words that are more socially relevant to men such as beer and football, and women, including chocolate and shopping. They combined the words in a single list.
The list was then read out to 40 men and 40 women.
Men correctly recalled more male than female words, and women correctly recalled more female words.
Video Phone Lets You Talk To Your Pets & Even Give Them Treats From Anywhere
A new device called "Petchatz" lets owners video chat with their dog or cat from anywhere in the world and even reward them with a treat.
PetChatz claims to be the first-ever videophone of its kind and comes with a color camera so that pets and owners can see each other.
It also lets owners video chat with their dog or cat from anywhere in the world using their computer or smartphone, and remotely give them a treat.
The device is then connected to a Wi-Fi network, and it's filled with low calorie treats and 'scentz pads' that have a calming effect.
A special ringtone tells pets their owner is calling so they can be trained to run to the video phone.
The device costs about $350 right now, and is expected to be available in early 2014.
Male Contraceptive Pill Breakthrough
A new scientific breakthrough could finally make a male contraceptive pill a reality.
Scientists created a pill that works like a temporary vasectomy, stopping sperm leaving the body during sex.
They say the pill would not affect a man's sex drive, and fertility could be switched back on simply by not taking the pill.

Grinch! City Officials Make An Entire Street Take Down It's Christmas Decorations
Officials in Orange County, California made an entire street in Trabuco Canyon take down its Christmas decorations.
Some 15-20 homeowners on the street received letters informing them that the lights which are anchored on multiple houses and suspended overhead are an obstruction and a violation of the county code.
The county officials ordered the homeowners to remove the elaborate display -- even though the display had been up on the street the past five holidays.
The officials say they worried that the lights aren't strung up strong enough and that a storm could potentially bring them down and electrocute someone.
