Slow News Day

Sometimes, when theres nothing going on you get some of the best useless stuff on the news. So here are some of the best of the news you don't need to know.

Physics in the realm of Hollywoodland - MSNBC

Miller to Launch Low-Calorie Craft Beers- Fox News
Easy now. The 12oz low-cal craft beers have 110 calories compared to Miller Lite's 96 calories. However, the craft beers are supposedly a higher quality beer.
