Cockroach Derby Predicts Romney Win

Posted 2012-08-16 13:13:01 | Views: 5,151

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- It remains to be seen what happens in November, but Romney has defeated Obama in a New Jersey race in August.

 

The contestants Thursday were not the president and his Republican challenger, but rather a couple of Madagascar hissing cockroaches standing in for the candidates.

 

Phillip Cooper, vice president of the New Jersey Pest Management Association, tells The Star-Ledger that it was a close, clean race.

 

The Cockroach Derby is a regular event for the group, which uses it to drum up publicity. Thursday's event was the 16th.

 

It's also proven a decent predictor of the presidential elections. The group says the candidate represented by the winning roach has won the presidential election 84 percent of the time.

Scrabble Player Cheats - Ejected from Championship

Posted 2012-08-15 14:44:50 | Views: 4,727

Perhaps unable to memorize semi-words such as "Ne" and "Ef" like the rest of the field, a young Scrabble playerwas booted from the game's national championship tournament in Florida after he was caught cheating in one of the final rounds, reports the Associated Press. Tournament officials did not name the male player because he's a minor. He was busted when a competitor at a nearby table spotted him with a pair of blank tiles — which players can use to represent any letter — that he had kept from the previous game. "It's unfortunate," said John D. Williams Jr., executive director of the National Scrabble Association. "The Scrabble world is abuzz. The Internet is abuzz." Just like a Scrabble nut, Williams must have been trying to discard all his Zs.

"I am scared easily, here is a list of my adrenaline - production: 1: small children, 2: policemen, 3: high places, 4: that my next movie will not be as good as the last one."

Life-size Soda Fountain: Sprite Shower!

This is the best Sprite Ad of all time! 

Wow, not sure I have ever seen an interactive ad as badass as this before. Who wouldn't want a Sprite shower at the beach? I'm sure plenty of little kids tried and tasted the water hoping for the real thing. Ha, love it! 

This summer in Rio De Janeiro, the beaches were literally hot, and people need a way to refresh themselves with a cool-down. This is where that whole “free soda refill” idea came in handy. Sprite saw a unique opportunity. Instead of giving out free Sprite, (which is nice yet not exactly revolutionary), they instead thought big, Really big. The soda maker literally created the worlds biggest soda fountain, with which people could go and refresh themselves not by having a free refill of soda, but a free shower.
