Bacon Flavored Soda; Daylight Savings bad for your help; Daily Page

bacon-flavored soda

Jones Soda is always ahead of the soft-drink game, and today the company introduces bacon-flavored soda. Mmm.

The concoction was created in partnership with J&D's Foods(home of many bacon products) and comes in a fancy gift pack: Order now, and you'll get two bottles of soda, bacon salt, bacon gravy, bacon popcorn and bacon lip balm. That's a whole lotta pig for $9.99.

 

DAYLIGHT WASTING

Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour on Sunday. But is getting an extra hour's sleep worth it? Well, scientists now say that Daylight Saving is not only bad for your health, but for the environment too. While the time-change is designed to give people more light in the morning, it also robs them of an hour of daylight in the afternoon, which leads to turning on the lights and consuming more energy. Also, leaving the clocks alone would give people some much-needed Vitamin D from the extra afternoon sunlight and may drive them to work out more. Daylight Saving? More like Daylight Wasting!

What do you think? Do you like getting an extra hour of sleep? Would you rather it was light out earlier, or that it stayed light later?
