Pedestrian Gets Hit By Car, Lands on His Feet, Looks Like He’s Okay [VIDEO]

One of my biggest fears when driving is accidentally hitting someone. Some people might call it an irrational fear; but especially if there are a lot of people running around, it's definitely on my mind when I'm behind the wheel. That's why I winced when I saw this video, and quickly followed that wince with a "Woah, no way!"

Woman Thinks She Has a Solution for Deer-Related Car Accidents: Is She for Real? [VIDEO]

I've lived in Colorado all my life, so I'm no stranger to deer crossing roads. It's just something you have to be prepared for if you live in the same area as wild animals. Luckily, I've never hit one, though I have had some close calls over the years. The same can't be said for the woman in this story, however.

Why You Should Always Return Your Library Books on Time! [VIDEO]

I was just thinking the other day that I should get a library card. I had one for the library where I grew up, and I have lots of fond library memories from that time. Then I saw this story; and being the somewhat forgetful person that I am, I'm not sure it's such a good idea anymore!

Should We Get Rid of Pennies? [POLL]

A year or so ago, a friend mentioned to me that some thought the US should get rid of the penny. I was kind of confused. But it turns out, it might actually be a good idea economically; and one store is out to prove it.

Some Phrases You Use Every Day Could Actually Be Offensive [VIDEO]

When I was younger, sometimes my sister and I would get home from school a little earlier than my parents got home from work.  When my dad got home, he would always pat me on the back and say, "Thanks for holding down the fort, Drew!"  I didn't know until just now that, while my dad was praising me for a job well-done, he was also being insensitive to Native Americans!

Woman Suing for Billions Says Parking Meters Made her Sick – Daily Dose of Weird [VIDEO]

Parking meters.  In some places, they're everywhere.  It's kind of sad driving through familiar areas where parking used to be free, and now seeing meters menacingly policing all the best spots.  As technology has advanced, so have parking meters; and now one woman is saying the new state-of-the-art money-takers are making her ill, and she wants compensation.  A LOT of compensation!

Scientists Think They Can Lower the Mosquito Population Using… Mosquitos? – Daily Dose of Weird [VIDEO]

If I had to pick my least favorite thing about Summertime, it wouldn't be the heat.  It would be the mosquitos.  Those blood-sucking little buggers leave me itchy for weeks!  Add to that the fact that they carry diseases like West Nile Virus and H1N1 Flu, and there's really no good reason to put up with them.  And luckily, scientists seem to agree.  Read on to see what their plan is!

Quick Texters Compete in US National Texting Championship – Daily Dose of Weird [VIDEO]

It seems like most people text with their phones more than they talk on them these days. I text all the time, and I'm not always sure why. It takes more effort to type out thoughts on a tiny keyboard, rather than just say them.  Plus, it's impossible to know someone's inflection and tone of voice through text. If I had a dime for every misinterpreted text I've dealt with, I'd have...well, a whole lot of dimes; at least ten or 20 bucks worth! But some folks are so good at texting, they are actually winning huge cash prizes for doing it!  Read on to see what I mean.
