In today's show, more unbelievable details from the top-secret Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement leak out, and we determine (again) that it's sheer unadulterated evil and has to be stopped. Also, we explore the "winkie" defense, discover that naps boost your brain power, and hey, Betty White? We'll let you host Buzz Out Loud for real anytime you want. --Molly

In the story above, a man is arrested and threatened with a possible custodial sentence for tweeting whilst frustrated as a nearby airport is closed due to being snowbound. His tweet (admittedly ill-considered) was “Crap! Robin Hood Airport is closed. You’ve got a week… otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!”.


I hope I didn't sound too offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing in conveying this story to you!

Not sure if you all had heard or not, but this was news to me- this year’s olympic medals are at least partially created from recycled computer and cell phone components!

This is actually a really interesting video as it not only talks about the green/sustainability efforts involved, but also, about the design concept (aka why are the medals so wavy! lol).


Anyway, enjoy :)


Love,

Dr. Karl
