Boring news for boring people

You should love it.

Squirrels hate small business owners, like chocolate
Squirrels are dirty little thieves, stealing up to two Kinder Surprise Eggs per day.
"It removes the foil carefully, eats the chocolate and leaves the store with the toy," Irene Lindroos said.
I guess it's nice to know that someone enjoys the chocolate on a Kinder Surprise Egg.

Man Field Tests Those Ricockulous Wheel Shoes
Unravels the mystery behind the allure of these confusing shoes: they make mundane things slightly less boring.
This appeals to me. I hate boring things and people. I believe that everything I own, down to my toilet brush should be interesting. I believe that friends should challenge, intrigue or in some way divert you. Why shouldn't shoes be fun?

Slate's Explainer: Can you survive in space without a space suit?
Super-fascinating, if you're super-nerdy. Which I am.

Not really the news, but really an awesome video if you own a carpet and a dog-door. I'm just saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Be vigilant.

I love raccoons. Damned thieves!

Also, I knew the answer to the space walk question already. Does that give me a higher geek score?

Also, I now fear that I am boring people. Actually, I have feared this for a long time, but now the fear has come back from vaction, laid a cold, bony hand on my shoulder, and whispered in my ear that he's home. Thanks for that!

You get super-nerd extra bonus geek points! Hooray!

It now seems that the really sad thing is that I think that you are interesting and that most people are boring... maybe we are two nerd peas in a nerd pod.

I'd rather be a nerd pea in a nerd pod with a few other people than surrounded by boring morons like a grain of sand in a sandbox.
