Chad Demonstrates How to Use The Squatty Potty [Video]

A couple of weeks ago, I happened to catch the makers of the Squatty Potty on ABC's show Shark Tank.  And I was absolutely fascinated by the idea that, instead of sitting to use the restroom, humans really are designed to "pop a squat".  And the Squatty Potty is designed to help us do just that.  It helps us do the "doo".  So, I just had to have one.  Say goodbye to grunting like Maria Sharapova playing tennis.  Say goodbye to popping a vein like you're in the movie Scanners!  Say goodbye to moaning and groaning like you're being forced to listen to Sarah Palin.  Say "hello" to the Squatty Potty and my instructional in-home demonstration!

UK Fans Send 9-Year-Old Who’s Battling Cancer to the Final Four

wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather
Final Four tickets are usually prohibitively expensive...unless, of course, you're a UK fan and the Wildcats are in the Final Four. Then there's nothing "prohibitive" about it. And when Big Blue Nation learns about a very special fan who wouldn't otherwise be able to attend, they rally.

Controversial Sex Education Magazine Removed From Daviess County Public Schools

I'll be very frank.  We didn't have much sex education when I was in school.  In fact, most of mine came from a brochure my mother gave me.  That pamphlet, if my memory serves me correctly, was compiled by Dear Abby (or someone like her) and it was full of misinformation.  Looking back now, I'm really glad I ignored much of what I read.  First of all, I would be completely self-loathing and I wouldn't have had an ounce of fun in college.  Just saying.  Yes, I'm making a joke to make a point and that point is actually serious. The sex education debate still rages on and it surfaced once again just days ago in the Daviess County School System.
