Happy Birthday, Clint

If your kids are considering studying one of the bottom 3 majors - Arts, Education, and Psychology/Sociology - they should seriously re-consider the whole cost-benefit of going to college.

The World's First BMX Triple Backflip
I'm guessing all the previous failed attempts were painful/fatal.

How to Fill That Oprah-shaped Hole in Your Life
Nutella, chloroform-soaked rags and this:

There is nothing as satisfying as powerfully going to the bathroom. In our modern world with our HDTVs and our conversations we often forget about how pleasurable it is to satisfy these basic biological urges. Because I can't go to the bathroom all the time, I like to record my bathroom time on a little recorder, and then play it back when I'm feeling down.

How to Survive A Modern Day Breakup
Well I always suggest networks of hidden surveillance cameras/faking your own death, fleeing to Mexico but you can only go to that well so many times.
