Why this person, why right now? Don’t get married because there’s a child on the way or because it makes sense financially or because all of your friends are wifed up and you’re the last man standing — it sounds stupid and obvious, but people hastily marry for the wrong reasons ALL. THE. TIME.
Audience members laughed, cried, broke out in cold sweats, dropped to their knees and made praying motions while repetitively swaying back and forth, sobbed, yelled, screamed, jumped, covered their faces and more today on Oprah! Seriously. Video inside.
Using statistical analysis, this UCF professor recently caught over 200 students cheating on a midterm exam. He proceeded to dedicate an entire lecture to how he caught them, how he felt, and what would happen if they didn’t come clean (they wouldn’t graduate).

As of 5:34 PM EST, 4chan is down, and we can only assume this is the first major disaster in Web War I (WWI) – a war 4 chan’s anarchic /b/ messageboard declared on the microblogging/sharing platform Tumblr early last week.
Someone figured out what the internet’s going to be like in 2020. Lots of hackers, interplanetary connectivity and robots. Infographic after the jump.
An in-depth feature by Brendan Kiley at The Stranger this August reported that the percentage of cocaine seized by the DEA cut with a cattle deworming drug called levamisole has risen from 1.9% in 2005 to 78.2% in 2009.

And no one can really explain why it’s in our cocaine.
