February 14th, outsourced

This study says that teens knowing about their own family history is an indicator of social and emotional health. [HT Josie]

The Baby Name Wizard asks that pesky question: creative spelling, or mistake?

Here's more about the baby whose premature birth (and subsequent hospital bills) was blamed for cutting benefits at AOL. [HT Nancy]

GoPro (those small invincible sport cameras) goes amateur. [HT Jeremy]

Speaking of GoPro, I am fairly certain that's what these two insane guys are using to film themselves climbing the second-tallest building in the world. Illegally. Without harnesses. And oh yeah, the building isn't finished yet and at one point they climb higher than the building itself, on a crane looking down at it. If that high-five near the end doesn't give you the heebie-jeebies, well.

Fart Winter Olympics. If you don't at least crack a smile at this, you are not allowed to read this blog anymore. [HT Jeanelle]

Polio is back.

  2. Oh my goodness my palms were sweating during that climb. I hate heights. That being said I was totally hoping they had base suits on and were going to jump. Horrifying. Also the polio thing. 31 public health immunizers killed since 2012...almost makes our anti vaxers seem normal :-/
