Biden to enter presidential race so he can give Hillary a pardon?

By Mike Thayer

The notion was brought up today on the Rush Limbaugh show by guest host Mark Steyn.

Think about it.  Hillary Clinton is under FBI investigation, what she did with her private email server and classified information was a HUGE no-no.  Her arrogance was seriously reckless.  The story has legs.  She screwed up, BIG time.

So don't be surprised to learn that Biden isn't getting into the race simply because Hillary's poll numbers are slipping.  He's getting into the race to save party face. 

He announces, Hillary *gracefully* exits making Biden the heir apparent and should he win the presidency, the charges of what crimes Hillary is facing will come out and so will the pardon.

Play Tetris to reduce cravings for drugs, food and sex | The Indian Express

Playing a tile-matching puzzle video game for as little as three minutes at a stretch can weaken cravings for drugs, food, sex and sleeping by approximately one-fifth, claims a study.

During the study, participants were prompted to play the video game called Tetris at random intervals during the day and were monitored for levels of craving.

The researchers found that playing Tetris interfered with desires not only for food, but also for drugs, including cigarettes, alcohol and coffee, and sex.

The benefits of playing the block-shifting puzzle game remained constant over the seven-day study period.


An Oral History of the Indoor Rainforest Iowa Almost Built

If people had just listened to Ted Townsend, heir to the Frank-O-Matic automatic sausage-linking machine fortune, one of the manmade wonders of the world would be in Coralville, Iowa (Pop. 20K). Picture this:

A glass dome a sixth of a mile long and 20 stories tall buffers a lush canopy against the windswept winters. Beneath it free-roaming bonobos, toucans, sloths, and piranha, shanghaied from the jungles of Central and South America, form a free-wheeling menagerie among ferns and vines and hundred-foot-tall-trees reaching towards the expansive sky.

That is what Townsend wanted, what some big thinkers back east wanted, and what the U.S. Senate thought might be crazy enough to work. But as his decade-long effort to realize his dream stalled out, Townsend sunk his money and his reputation into ground better suited to corn than orchids. But failure doesn’t make the effort less interesting or meaningful. The Iowa rainforest project attracted top architects, federal lobbyists, and local scorn. Derided as an extravagant pork-spending project, it was intended to give the state a landmark while helping researchers study vanishing ecosystems. Instead, the state wound up with a new hotel, some outlet stores, and — remarkably — a small city in the middle of a economic resurgence.

This is the story of the doomed rainforest project, told by people who fought over that ultimate white elephant.

Nanny State of the Week: Despite menu nannies, Americans are still fat -

American businesses have been required to spend billions of dollars over the past few years to comply with federal regulations requiring calorie information on all menus.

Despite all that effort, Americans are still fat and getting fatter.

California, in 2008, became the first state to pass mandatory menu labeling laws. Like many nanny state ideas that begin on our left coast, other states began to follow the example. In 2010, as part of the Affordable Care Act, Congress made calorie labeling mandatory for all chain restaurants with at least 20 locations, though businesses were given until 2014 to comply with the new mandate.
