There is going to be a lot of activity going on 5000 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico in the coming days, as BP continues to attempt to stop the flow of oil.

There has been an increase in flow recently, possibly due to an additional break, compounding the issue.

BP has provided this live feed to allow people to see what is going at the Deepwater Horizon spill site.

Things to do in your last hour of flight

Dec 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Article, Real News, snewz

I cant believe they cut me off from the drinks cart.

As many of you heard, there are new restrictions that have been placed on people traveling by air. Initially, the requirement was that passengers were required to sit in their seats without touching anything for the last hour.

Fortunately, the insanity of making millions of airline passengers sit on their hands for an hour overwhelmed the air travel industry and the TSA has now decided that these restrictions will be applied on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the flight crew. Presumably, this means that any time you are on a flight that has at least one non-white person, the flight crew will invoke their right to make your trip miserable.

My Mother has Swine Flu

Oct 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Article, Health, Real News

It would be even funnier if there wasn't such a risk of death.A lot of people have been talking about swine flu (H1N1) lately. It’s all over the news and there are even calls that it is being over-reported. I was on the fence about the media frenzy over the issue, because although there seems to be a lot of talk about it, there seems to be more hype over it in the reporting than anything else, at least according to every single person I’ve ever spoken to.

Cellphones in the Bathroom: Yay or Nastay?

Oct 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Article, snewz

She's a secret dumper.I was recently in the bathroom at my job, and there was a poster on the wall giving advice to people who use their cellphones while on the toilet. The poster was produced and advertised a specific cell phone company (*cough* sprint *cough*), and gave such advice as hitting the mute button when flushing and offered suggestions for explaining the “strange background noise.” Ever since seeing this poster, I have been putting a great deal of thought on the issue, and feel that it is my civic duty to tell the world why I think the practice should be ceased.

RE: The Spam Folder

Oct 14th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Article, revewz, snewz

Yes. The spam you can eat. No, dummy. E-mail spam!People no longer need to be subject to the constant con-artistry that lives in their spam folders, but it is sometimes required to delve into the pile in order to retrieve a prized e-mail that may have been misdirected. Whether looking for a response from a beautiful girl, waiting for a message on an important banking matter, or any other occasion in which life itself may hinge upon a single e-mail, sometimes it just doesn’t come. Or it doesn’t seem to come.

She really liked me, though. I’m sure of it… maybe it went to my spam folder. It does happen. But what else is going on in there?

The Long Journey Home

Sep 14th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Article, snewz

Viva le France!
Sit back and relax, citizen, while I tell you a true tale of my personal foolery while traveling home from Rome to NY via London.

The reason I was in Rome was that I had taken a course on Renaissance art and felt inspired to see things firsthand. Being a student, I booked the cheapest flight I could get (Air India), got myself a fantastically inexpensive hostel in Rome ($8/night), and traveled with only a backpack for 2 weeks.
