A New Jersey woman is being charged with child endangerment for taking her 6 year old daughter tanning. The kid showed up at school with a sunburn, and told the school nurse that she got it tanning with her mother. The mom… who looks like a purse… admits she is addicted to tanning, but says her daughter got the sunburn playing outside while she was inside tanning.
Facebook users now have the option to indicate whether or not they are organ donors and the state they are registered in. Facebook says this is a great way to save lives and to potentially eliminate organ transplant waiting lists, as many as 7,000 Americans die every year waiting for a transplant. States are ALREADY seeing a spike in interest on the first day. Is this the new frontier of organ donation or just creepy? (Also, I’m surprised that Facebook doesn’t already know if you’re an organ donor)
A high school student in Iowa took a life-sized cutout of quarterback/religious icon Tim Tebow to prom. It’s actually not as creepy as it sounds. She decided to join the flocks of people who invite celebrities to prom via Twitter. A friend bet her that she wouldn’t show up with Tebow, and when she didn’t get a response on Twitter she came up with the “plan B”
A lefty blog is hitting Mitt Romney for new video that shows him marveling at the home of the pizza magnate John Schnatter (Papa John’s) and saying “Everyone should live like this“.

Heartache: Mitt Romney won’t be making an appearance on SNL this season. There are only three episodes left, and as you might guess Romney has a pretty full schedule. Lorne Michaels says they’ll try to work something out for the fall.
A California treasure hunter says that he knows exactly where Osama bin Laden’s body is. He’s trying to raise $200,000 to fund an expedition to go get it. The guy has found over 200 shipwrecks in his career, so he knows his stuff. After a year, I wonder how much is left. How do you feel about raising bin Laden?
