Guys, it's a fact, men are less likely than women to buckle up. In 2008, 66 percent of male drivers and 74 percent of male passengers 18 to 34 killed in passenger vehicles were NOT wearing their seat belts. Don't become a statistic...wear a seatbelt! Especially at night! Two thirds of people who die in accidents at night are not buckled up. You may be a safe driver but you do not know who is out there... it's not cool to not wear it. The police will be out in force over Memorial weekend. Hundreds of State and local law enforcement and highway safety officials across the Nation will participate in Click It or Ticket 2010 from May 24 to June 6. They will be looking for you, day and night, and making sure that everyone is buckled up.

Facebook is evil, according to web journalist Dan Yoder. Reasons for dropping the social phenomenon include the one-sided terms of service (duh), the CEO's documented unethical behavior (duh), and the declared war on privacy (duh). Some of these points make some sense, but at the same time, we all should know what we get with Facebook and not be surprised or expect anything different. If you are nervous about some of these points, Kevin breaks it down for you.

California Collects $100,000,000 in Marijuana Sales Tax
This is pretty crazy and medical marijuana is starting to spread all over the place. Washington DC even approved it! But is it really a legit medical treatment? How many of our friends have the legal card and actually need it, clinically? It's just a joke, really. Just legalize it, and call it a day. Is it honestly any worse than drinking? It makes you wonder why one (booze) is legal over the other (reefer). Can someone smell a government conspiracy? Go watch Reefer Madness.
