Jeff Bakeman says he noticed that some jewelers are selling "conflict free" diamond engagement rings. He wishes he had those when he got married.

Now we're hearing that the NSA has been collecting 200-million text messages every day in the U.S. And those are just the ones from movie theaters!

A study says that heavy drinking can speed up memory loss in middle aged men... which is concerning, since I can't remember if I'm drinking more.

I'm texting myself "The Duck Lands at Midnight" over and over, just so the NSA has to sort me out.

First there was Google Glass... now, we hear they're working on Google Contact lenses. Hopefully, they'll draw a line before they get to Google Suppositories.

Man, that was one loud football game on Sunday. The #1 question in Seattle these days: "What?"

I have my seats for the Super Bowl game -- same couch I was sitting in for the playoffs.

Note to other states with NFL teams---legalize pot.

They say that most airline seats on planes today are meant for 170-pound passengers. They also say that most American passengers today require two of them.

Queen Elizabeth hasn't turned over all her duties to her son, Prince Charles, but she is now job sharing more with him. At this pace, she should finally retire by the time she's 143.

New England quarterback Tom Brady says he has no plans to watch the Super Bowl Game.  Does anyone?  I thought we were there for the commercials!

Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami yesterday for drag racing and DUI.  In Justin's defense, he didn't hear about 29-cent a dozen eggs at Food World until after happy hour.

Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami yesterday for drag racing and DUI. The  good news: at least no one was egged.

Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon, better known to millions as the 1970s singing group The Captain & Tennille, are splitting after 39 years of marriage. She filed has week to have the Captain divorce court-martialed.

Things had apparently been strained for a while.  When performing together, every time she'd sing, "Do that to me one more time" he'd always respond with, "You know I can't."
