This week in wierd (a news category on Comcast), there is a crazy story about a man who bought a rat to feed his pet snake, then didn't have the heart to serve dinner.
*"Do you know the reference??" - The movie IQ starring Tim Robbins and Meg Ryan - very cute, run out and rent/buy it if you haven't seen it. Especially if you like math and science - it is about Einstein's niece (Meg Ryan) falling in love with a car mechanic (Tim Robbins). Walter Matthau puts in a great performance as Einstein.
