Godzilla Is Actually a Really Cool Guy in New Snickers Ad

Did you know that when he's not rampaging through cities and laying waste to the countryside, the legendary beast known as Godzilla is actually a really cool guy who likes to party, hang out with his buddies and play a mean game of ping pong?

You know what we should do today? We should go to the museum!

‘Anchorman 3′ Will Never Happen, Says Director Adam McKay

Although 'Anchorman 2' wasn't groundbreaking at the box office even being a more moderately budgeted comedy, it did make significantly more than its beloved 2004 predecessor.

It’s Time for Ten Digit Phone Calls in Evansville and Indiana

I blogged about this a while back and now it's here.  Beginning Saturday, Hoosiers will be in a "permissive dialing" situation, a six-month period where you can still dial the seven-digit numbers you've been dialing, but you should begin dialing the ten-digit (area code + number) to get into the habit.  Forcing yourself to dial the ten-digit now will have you ready for the mandatory switch beginning September 6.
