THE FACT IS…

In Massachusetts, there’s a law that says taxi drivers are prohibited from making love in the front seat of the car during their shifts. Guess back seat is ok. 

SOMETHING TO PASS ALONG…

A 13-year-old boy in Ohio is getting a whiff of success! He makes manly-scented candles calledManCans, with scents like Sawdust, Campfire and New York Style Pizza, and they’ve become a hit!


Check out this toy house in Toronto! And when we say “toy house” we mean literally covered in toys!


This artist is seeking to bring some color back into people’s lives. Diem Chau, a Vietnam native, is raffling off her crayon sculptures to raise money for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
