Hilarious auction for a wedding dress. "I found my ex-wife's wedding dress in the attic when I moved. She took the $4000 engagement ring but left the dress. I was actually going to have a dress burning party when the divorce became final, but my sister talked me out of it. She said, "That’s such a gorgeous dress. Some lucky girl would be glad to have it. You should sell it on EBay. At least get something back for it." So, this is what I’m doing. I’m selling it hoping to get enough money for maybe a couple of Mariners tickets and some beer." There's more and he even modeled it himself.

Using laser to paint images directly on the retina. This sounds like a really cool system, although it probably won't be affordable for normal consumers for at least 5 years.

Stupid Burglars of the Day. "When officers arrived, they found that the front door had been kicked in and the cash register was stolen. But the roll of tape that records transactions in the register was unraveling behind the thieves as they ran away. Officers say they simply followed the 100-foot-tape into the bushes, where two people were hiding."
