Jeff Pickles (Carrey) has hosted for 30 years on Columbus, Ohio, public broadcasting — where you might run into the likes of a sad baguette named Ennui Le Triste...

Out of 665 results from England, Wales and Northern Ireland collected by the Food Standards Agency, 145 were partly or wholly made up of unspecified meat.

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — They’ve long been an unmissable part of public events in Mexico, from soccer matches to trade fairs: attractive women hired to be greeters or simply as eye candy, sometimes scantily clad in short skirts and high heels or crop-tops and hot pants emblazoned with corporate logos.

    String Theory May Create Far Fewer Universes Than Thought

    The problem with string theory, according to some physicists, is that it makes too many universes. It predicts not one but some 10500 versions of spacetime, each with their own laws of physics. But with so many universes on the table, how can the theory explain why ours has the features it does?

    Trump is mad about Fed rate hikes, but he only has himself to blame for them

    President Donald Trump has broken another Washington norm: While recent presidents have tended to avoid commenting on monetary policy, Trump is out there saying the Fed is raising interest rates too high, too fast. But unlike some of the norms Trump has broken, this one isn't that old. The informal policy of presidents and their staffers not commenting on monetary policy only goes back about 25 years.

The plain, white box included a return address label listing the sender as Falcon McBob. Seeing as how I don’t know anyone from the McBob family, I was a little hesitant to open the box.
