Well, that’s another week over. If you survived it, you should be happy. That’s really about as much as I can draw from this week. The rest of it, for me, and probably for many of you, dear reader, is more just fuel for that first drink tonight. But before that, let’s give the week one final push off the cliff. Shall we?

The cardinal and the crank
Rush Limbaugh, a famous person among arch-conservatives and people from 1995 alike, took on Pope Francis this week, calling His Holiness’ social justice movement “pure Marxism.” He said that the pope’s attack on unfettered capitalism as the new tyranny is purely politically motivated, and not a religion matter. Man, someone is getting kind of preachy!
You have an excuse to post embarrassing stuff this weekend
It was announced this week that hackers stole the passwords to more than 2 million social media accounts around the world. Word is that they obtained it through software tracking people’s every keystroke. Big deal, I could hack that many accounts just by guessing the password is “password.”
Introducing the XBra
Microsoft may have made some waves recently with the release of its newest gaming system, the XBox One, but this week, Redmond showed it still has a little but of that innovation magic that made it a juggernaut. Researchers have developed the “smart bra,” which monitors a woman’s heartbeat and other factors to track her mood and warn her when she’s overeating. A device that tells women to cut back on the snacks and pays attention to moods? There’s no way anyone but a man thought up this one. Sadly, it runs on Windows 8.
