Wednesday Recap!

Here's some of what you missed if you didn't catch a portion of the show today!  

 

Bad news came out of Burlington yesterday.  There was a truck that was reported to have lost part of its load.  A mattrress came loose and wound up in the middle of 128.  That incident caused a chain reaction crash which tragically took the life of one woman.  More than a few of you texted or tweeted wondering if Spaz had anything to do with it, since the truck matched the description of his junk hauler.  How dare you assume that!  

 

MANTOWN ALERT - It turns out that going braless could be beneficial to women.  A study was recently done that showed that letting the girls fly free helped strengthen the chest muscles and therefore, prevented sagging.  Huzzah!  Seems like a victory for both men and women everywhere.  

 

Our big discussion this morning was about the farmer in North Dakota who was the first U.S. citizen to be convicted of a charge and sent to prison based in part on evidence that was collected by an unmanned drone.  We wanted to know what you thought of this... do you consider it an invasion of your privacy?  Greg's theory is that if you're not doing anything wrong, it shouldn't matter.  I agreed with him to a point, but I felt that this could be a major issue for people.  No one wants a random drone gathering a soon-to-go-viral video of you picking your nose while driving down the Expressway.  Leave us a comment below and let us know what you think about this.

 

Another big topic this morning was the concept of reusable cloth toilet paper.  There are three bloggers who are trying to do their part to make the world more green.  They were part of a HuffPost Live Google Hangout, and they talk about how they are trying to lighten the proverbial "load" on the earth.  Watch it here:

 

 

A few other things we discussed today:

Korean reporter undergoes brutal jaw surgery for heart-shaped face.

A man in the UK testified in court that he had sex with a sheep because the cow rejected him.  

Have scientists found the cure for baldness?

 

Don't forget, tomorrow at 8:15 we'll speak with Boston Bruin Shawn Thornton during Thursdays with Thorty!
