A Beer Flavored After Girl Scout Cookies Has Arrived

It feels like this was only a matter of time:  Someone just turned Girl Scout Cookies into BEER.   The Southern Tier Brewing Company in New York just made a new beer called Thick Mint, which is a high-alcohol stout that’s brewed with cocoa and mint to taste like Thin Mints.   Now,  the beer isn’t officially sanctioned by the Girl Scouts, but it dances around a trademark violation just enough that you should be able to get your hands on it if you want to try it.  You can find where it’s for sale near you at STBCBeer.com.

The Next Set of Emojis Include a Sandwich, Elf, Dinosaur, and Exploding Head

We have BREAKING EMOJI NEWS, which is a much bigger deal than it should be, right?  The group that regulates the standard set of emojis is called the Unicode Consortium.  They’re going to be meeting in June to discuss 69 new emojis, and the mockups for all of them just came out.  Here are some of the highlights.   1.  Lots of mythical creatures, including male and female zombies, mermaids, fairies, elves, wizards, vampires, and genies.   2.  Some new faces, including one with a shocked look and brain exploding, an angry one with symbols that represent cursing covering the

Two Guys Jumped Out of Their Cars to Help a Cop Who Was Being Attacked

A cop in southwest Michigan tried to pull over a motorcycle last month after he clocked it at 92 miles an hour.  But the guy wouldn’t stop, because it turned out the bike was stolen.  (It happened about 60 miles southwest of Kalamazoo.)   The guy eventually CRASHED, and the cop pulled up next to him.  Apparently he wasn’t hurt that badly though, because he charged at the cop and ATTACKED him.  While they were struggling, another guy pulled over, and HE attacked the cop too.  It turned out he was the guy’s brother.  Apparently they stole the bike together,

Five Practical Things to Bring Someone Who’s in the Hospital

Someone who was recently laid up in a hospital posted a list on Reddit of things they wish people had brought them.  Apparently they got a lot of flowers, which was great.  But they wish they’d gotten some practical stuff too.   Here are five suggestions they came up with.   1.  Moisturizer.  They had to wash their hands a lot, so they got pretty dry.  And the air was dry too, so they also wish they’d had chapstick.   2.  A really long phone charger.  Like one of those ten-foot ones, so they can still use their phone while

Here’s Why People Prefer Pepsi in Taste Tests But Like Coke Better Overall

In blind taste tests, people are more likely to say they like Pepsi more than Coke.   And here’s why.  Pepsi is sweeter than Coke, and has a slight citrus flavor burst when you first drink it.  So when you take one sip, that sweetness and citrus burst taste better.   But as you drink an entire can, that burst goes away, and the sweetness starts to become too much.   Coke is smoother, it has a hint of vanilla, and it’s less sweet.  So as you drink a whole can, it tastes better and better.   That’s why Pepsi

An Abused Dog Got Adopted, and Saved a Three-Year-Old’s Life

Last April, someone brought an abused dog into an animal shelter in northern Michigan that had two broken legs.  She still looks pretty young, so apparently she was still a puppy at that point.  Luckily she recovered, and the owners got arrested for animal cruelty.  Then another couple adopted her and named her Peanut.  So she’s in good hands now.   But last Friday, she started barking like crazy and running around their house.  Which wasn’t normal.  So the husband let her outside, and she bolted straight into a field next to their house.  Which was also weird, so he followed Peanut.   And she ended up

Hackers Are Threatening to Wipe All of Our iPhones Unless Apple Gives Them $100,000 of iTunes Gift Cards

Now that hackers have violated every female celebrity’s privacy by hacking their iPhones, they’re moving on to the rest of us.  And this ain’t good.  Apparently, a group of hackers called the Turkish Crime Family managed to get a list of at least 300 million people’s iCloud passwords.   And they’ve told Apple they’re going to log into those accounts and remotely wipe the data on ALL of their iPhones on April 7th, unless Apple pays them a ransom.  They want either $75,000 in Bitcoin or $100,000 in iTunes gift cards.   They say if Apple pays up, they’ll delete

Five Common Phrases People Get Wrong All the Time

Do you know anyone who says “supposably” instead of “supposedly”?  The first one is wrong, so they look as dumb as Joey from “Friends”.  But if you point it out, YOU feel like a jerk.  Here are five more common phrases we get wrong all the time   1.  “For all intensive purposes.”  It’s really “for all INTENTS and purposes.”  The other way is like saying, “for all these very thorough purposes.”  Which doesn’t make sense.   2.  “Nip it in the butt.”  The correct phrase is “nip it in the BUD,” like a flower bud.  The other way makes
