Tommy Jordan, the former Marine who became an internet sensation and hero to every parent with teenagers last week with his video of not only PAWNing his daughter on Facebook but putting his daughter's laptop out of its misery with a '45, was surprise, surprise, visited by Child Protective Services officials as well as local police officers. The Child Services agents reportedly interviewed him and his daughter separately, but took no action in the end. The police, however, did have something to say to Jordan: “Kudos.”
“I actually had a “thank you” from an entire detectives squad" he said, "And another police officer is using it in a positive manner in his presentation for the school system. How’s about those apples? Didn’t expect THAT when you called the cops did you?”
Well done, sir. Well done.

That's exactly what happened when in 2011, Illinois-based ArLynn Leiber Presser made a New Year’s resolution to visit with all 335 of her Facebook friends to help her overcome her agoraphobia. Her journey took her to 51 cities in 13 countries. Her story is now a documentary film titled Face to Facebook. If anything it should inspire us to get off our fat asses, close our laptops and, oh I dunno, actually have proper conversations with other humans. Hmm...

Scottish artist Robert Montgomery makes, well, not entirely legal art pieces. He targets outdoor ads mainly, turning pitches and puns into smooth, flowing poetry. Apparently, even the cops look the other way most days. Says something about the ads that run these days, doesn't it?
