Even stacked together in a jar, all those pennies you have are fairly worthless. However, they may soon become collectors’ items.
Canada, our neighbor to the North, has just eliminated the penny in their latest federal budget, following the example of nations like Australia and New Zealand. The Canadian national mint will stop producing the one-cent coin over the next six months, and businesses have been asked to return pennies to be melted down.
We thought it was a joke too, but apparently the Great White North is serious:
‘The Lorax‘ movie has brought some well-deserved attention to the late Dr. Seuss‘ furry orange tree protector.
But not all of this attention has been of a positive nature. In fact, some heartless thieves have stolen a 300-pound statue of the Lorax from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s San Diego estate where his 90-year-old widow, Audrey Geisel, still resides.
James Cameron is king of the deep blue sea. Using a specially designed one-man submarine dubbed the “Deepsea Challenger,” the ‘Titanic’ and ‘Avatar’ director reached the floor of the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the world’s oceans. He is now the first solo explorer to ever do so.
It’s one thing when Gwyneth Paltrow names her child Apple, or M.I.A names her’s Ikhyd. Those celebrities have the resources to deal with the problems that can arise when a child is given an odd name. However, experts are increasingly seeing ‘naming regret” among normal folks who give their babies not so normal names.
Growing up, Johnny Depp was so obsessed with Barnabas Collins, the lead character from the Gothic soap opera ‘Dark Shadows,’ that he later admitted he wanted to be him.
Now Depp gets to play Collins, a vampire who was buried alive in 1752 and then mistakenly dug up in 1972, in Tim Burton’s film adaptation of the legendary cult series. (Depp playing a fish-out-of-water weirdo? Say it ain’t so!)
Four guys walk into a bar. While this sounds like the beginning of a joke, it was actually part of an elaborate prank/crime that would make the notorious ‘Ex-President’ gang from the movie ‘Point Break’ proud.
There is a six-foot-tall slice of pizza on the loose in or around Lakeland, FL. Described by police as having pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers and black olives, it’s actually a promotional costume for the local Papa John’s.
As you can see in the surveillance tape below, the slice was swiped by a man who appears to be around 18 with a serious taste for pizza.
