In memory of Adam West: West was once asked to play James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever, but declined the role.  He, along with Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood were the only Americans offered the role of James Bond but declined because he felt Bond should be played by someone from the UK.

I think Mel Gibson was also in the running as a Bond at some point, which would also make him one of the few Americans considered for the role, although he has dual citizenship as an Australian.  He wouldn't be the only Aussie considered for the role.

That's actually pretty hilarious.

I always thought my cat was weird.
She'd rather drink from a puddle of water in the shower than the water I put in her bowl...

Then I read this:

Domestic cats instinctively don't want to drink the water bowl next to their food, and therefore seek it out first elsewhere in the house, because in the wild any water next to heir kill might be contaminated.

Skittles are a brand noted as being one of the earliest to recognize the marketing potential of social media, and have been consistently praised for their genuine understanding of the platform strengths and limitations and humor while interacting with fans. In particular, the Skittles Facebook page has often been singled out as one of the best corporate fan pages out there because it’s actually kind of entertaining.

One of the last things Mars does before they send off Skittles to be bought and consumed by the public is add the little S you can find on every candy. This little S is written using a non-water soluble ink that is attached using an apparently delicious kind of edible glue we’re annoyed you can’t buy in stores.

When you submerge Skittles inside any kind of liquid, this S will magically float off and rise to the surface and sit there, waiting for you to either drink it or try to pull it out using your fingers, only to watch it do that annoying thing where it moves just out of the way every single time you pinch your digits together.

Teenagers are hardwired to fall asleep later at night and wake up later in the morning.
