Alabama, Alaska, Arizona...

It's time for our Tuesday look around the world to see what's going on!
  1. Bob Dole finally got a job in the health care field.
  2. Mariah Carey is making a movie in which she plays an aspiring singer.
  3. We're all going to die.
In other words, nothing new is going on.

On to the news:

Teenagers scare ostrich to impotence?
(With firecrackers?)

Sword fight breaks out after man breaks into his ex-girlfriend's apartment
(The fun of doing this blog is that I have no idea what awaits me in the morning)

Bright, shiny objects:

More from the "creative ways to recycle" department
(Someone, Lindsey, linked these as a comment. They're in German, but you'll get the idea.)

Can you name all 50 states?
(You have ten minutes. Go.)

And finally:

The word in Russian for "red" is the same as the word for "beautiful." I learned that one this weekend.

It's not the same word. It used to be, but now they're distinct words, although the word for "red" can be used to mean "beautiful" still. It's archaic, though. They do share the same root. So does the word for "paint" or "to paint."
