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.

Android Outsells iPhone in the U.S.
Android-based phones outsold the iPhone in the U.S. for the first time last quarter. Google's Android-based smartphones accounted for 28% of smartphone sales. The problem, though, is Android folk aren't as into apps as the Apple fanboys. Right now, Apple users and investors (Kevin) don't see much threat in Android... but it definitely has potential to in the future. Amen. Also, "smartphone" is a hard word to say.

Sniper Sets World Distance Record With 8,120 Foot Kill
It was silent but deadly. A British sniper set a world sharpshooting record by taking out two Taliban soldiers in Afghanistan from more than a mile and a half away. To put it into American terms, the distance was just about from the Statue of Liberty to Battery Park. Even crazier, a shot from that distance has no visible source and no audible shot.

It's hard enough to find someone who could do this trick using their hands, so to witness someone execute it so flawlessly with the help of only their index fingers is nothing short of ridiculous. Kevin can do it, though, no problem. Watch the boys duke it out and try to master this impossible measure of strength!
