The only surprise is that it took this long.
There's something rather foreboding when the person who runs the United States says that he finished paying off his student loans less than a decade ago; on the flipside, however, is Ann Romney's claim to hard times because she and Mitt were unemployed and living off of stocks. While the President has been fighting tooth and nail for affordable higher education, who can resist financial advice from a grown man named Mitt?

This tidy little side-by-side comparison shows exactly how stoked young voters are for Obama, while the students at Romney's event seem like they're catching up on their sleep.
Toowomba, Australia mother of two Kylie Steger says her appetite was ruined when she found a "rude surprise" at the bottom of a burger box from fast food chain Hungry Jack's: a crude drawing of a penis.
The offensive doodle has put Steger off her weekly dinner visits to the restaurant, where she often took the kids after football and netball practice.
"It literally made me sick," she said. "If they have drawn that in there, what else have they done to my burger?"
A Hungry Jack's spokesman says the company has launched an internal investigation to determine the identity of the artist.
Jonah Hill's character from Superbad has not yet been ruled out as a suspect.
The Maximum Performance Project, an effort to ensure proper testing of the flushing capabilities of toilets, isn't secretive about its procedures (unlike some crappy, uncertified toilet testers).
The project's website documents exactly how to simulate the "real demands" on a toilet fixture and test every toilet "to failure" -- which we can only assume is disgusting.
So, how do they do it? Using specially-mixed logs of soybean paste as stand-ins for actual poo, natch.
