Bonehead Of The Day:
A Boston man was arrested after he tried to break into a police station around 2:30 in the morning.
The man was caught on camera trying to pull open a locked door. Once he got inside through a garage door he yelled at the officers to get out of his home.
The man continued to shout at the cops even though they told him he was inside a police station.
He didn’t listen so they were forced to place him in handcuffs.

Facebook posts are contagious.
Researchers looked at more than a billion anonymous status updates among more than 100 million Facebook users across the US.

Classic Late To Work Excuses!
A new CareerBuilder study of more than 3,000 full-time workers and more than 2,000 hiring managers and human resource professionals were asked about being late to work-- what's OK, what's not OK and what's downright strange.
23 percent of employees admit to being late at least once a month, with 15 percent arriving late at least once a week.
Traffic is the most common reason employees say they're late at 39 percent, followed by lack of sleep (19 percent), problems with public transportation (8 percent), bad weather (7 percent) and dropping the kids off at daycare or school (6 percent).
35 percent of employers have fired an employee for tardiness, and 48 percent of employers expect their employees to be on time every day. Thirty-four percent allow employees to be late every once in a while, as long as tardiness doesn't become a pattern. And 18 percent don't care how their employees manage their time, just that they get their work done.
Employers shared some of the most memorable excuses they've gotten from employees who were running late:
1. Employee claimed a zebra was running down the highway and held up traffic (turned out to be true)
2. Employee woke up on the front lawn of a house two blocks away from his home
3. Employee's cat got stuck in the toilet
4. Employee couldn't eat breakfast -- he ran out of milk for cereal and had to buy some before getting ready for work
5. Employee was late to work because he fell asleep in the car when he got to work
6. Employee accidentally put superglue in her eye instead of contact lens solution, and had to go to the emergency room
7. Employee thought Halloween was a work holiday
8. Employee said a hole in the roof caused rain to fall on the alarm clock and it didn't go off
9. Employee was watching something on TV and really wanted to see the end
10. Employee forgot that the company had changed locations
11. Employee got a hairbrush stuck in her hair
12. Employee was scared by a nightmare
TV Time Linked To Less Sleep For Kids
The more TV kids watch, the less sleep they get.
Researchers followed some 1,700 children for up to three years and found those who increased their TV time got even less sleep as they grew up.
For example, they found that a 9-year-old who watched five hours of television a day slept an average one hour less a night than a 9-year-old who watched television for less than an hour and a half a day.
What’s Really Wrong With Young People These Days
With the recent case of a New Jersey teen suing her estranged parents for private school and college tuition, adults are wondering what’s wrong with today’s youth.
The case and the attention it has earned is another example of juvenoia, a term that refers to the fear of juveniles by older adults.
Juvenoia comes out in different ways, including the belief that today’s youth are worse behaved than ever before, despite much evidence to the contrary.
Many older adults continue to think that youth violence is the worst ever, for instance, despite the fact that it stands now at only about 12% of what it was two decades ago.
In fact, comments by older adults that today’s youth are more entitled than previous generations go back at least to the ancient Greeks.
Kids With Family Routines More Emotionally & Socially Advanced
Kds who come from families with routines due better emotionally and socially.
Researchers followed the number of daily routines that more than 8,500 children practiced with their families like singing, telling stories and eating dinner together.
They found each routine was linked to a 47% increase in the odds that the kids would have high so-called social-emotional health, which indicates good emotional and social skills.
We Finally Have A Name For Scooby Doo’s Speech Disorder
Scooby-Doo, the animated canine, has been diagnosed with a speech disorder.
Forty-five years after the first airing of the beloved children’s TV show, there is finally an explanation for why he adds “r” to the beginnings of most words.
One speech pathology professor said that there is no question that Scooby has a speech sound disorder.
Scooby shows a pattern of substituting and adding sounds in his speech rather than just messing up sounds, making “apple” sound like “rapple.”
Scooby’s official diagnosis: “Rhotic Replacement”.
