Research on the basis of the "time flies when you're having fun" concept

What can I add to my spaghetti? at Metafilter has some interesting (and easy) ideas

Banks come up with new fees for credit card customers reinforces the buyer beware rule.

Heard a breathtakingly snobby report on the ails of the champagne market in a down economy where they talked to ONE "wine expert" and ONE random French person who declared champagne king and other sparkling wines, including--especially?--prosecco, as cheap wanna-be's that should never be substituted for the "real thing." I'd hoped obnoxious and blatant wine snobbery had died years ago, but I guess not.

For about half the globe New Year's Eve have be a blue moon because it will be the second full moon in December. For the other half (Asia, etc), January will have a blue moon since the full moon will occur on New Year's Day.

Speaking of astronomical events, check out the awesome International Year of Astronomy Prints by Simon Page. I know that it's the end of the year of astronomy already, but those posters are classic and gorgeous! I so want one.

Romeo and Juliet as remembered by people who read it in high school sounds hilarious! Too bad it's playing in New York....

Ahaha that Marketplace report! I heard it when it aired last night and nearly died of lol when they had ze snobby French madame talking in ze French accent about ze superiority of champagne! And granted, prosecco != champagne, but prosecco is what it is, which is freaking delicious, and anyone who doesn't like it needs to shut their piehole and leave it all for ME to drink. /GLUG GLUG

I cringed at that report, it was so bad. But I had the same reaction as you. You don't like it? GOOD! More for me!
