Welcome to the second grade. Here's your bulletproof blanket.

Here's something you parents can look for in the near future at Target's back-to-school sale:

From the Bodyguard Blanket web site:
Bodyguard™ blanket was developed and tested to specifically protect our children and teachers in the event of a school shooting. Bodyguard™ blanket is designed to be bullet resistant. It is made of the same materials our U.S. soldiers wear while in battle, and is equal to or exceeds the protection used by our police departments. After extensive research, it is estimated that Bodyguard™ blanket provides bullet resistant protection against 90% of all weapons that have been used in school shootings in the United States. We are so confident in the protective properties of Bodyguard™blanket we are encouraging every administrator to make it an integral part of school and university lockdown protocol.
I'm sorry, but if things are so bad that your kids need access to bulletproof blankets at school, perhaps it's time to rethink your education options.

The "short suit" is about to go mainstream

Head up, America. Retailers like J. Crew and Topman are trying to push the short suit into the men's fashion mainstream.

Imagine showing up to a business meeting dressed like this:

I was skeptical at first, but then I thought, is it really all that different from a kilt?

Maybe it could work. After all, AC/DC's Angus Young has been rocking that look for nearly 40 years.

What can devour a 9-foot great white shark?

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that something in the ocean is eating great white sharks. The bad news is that there is something in the ocean big enough to eat a great white shark.

Eleven years ago, a film crew was tagging sharks to study their movements along the Australian coast. One tracking device from a nine-foot great white washed up on shore four months later, and the data it contained was disturbing.

The data indicated that the shark suddenly plunged over 1,900 feet early one morning. The temperature then shot up from 46° F to 78° F, something that could only have happened if the shark had been swallowed by...something.
