THE FASTEST WAY TO CHILL BEER – ACCORDING TO SCIENCE
The big brains at Popular Science magazine put their powers to good use by explaining the fastest way to chill beer.
You just have to fill a cooler with ice, water and lots of salt. The more salt the better.
Then, submerge the cans or bottles as much as possible and close the top.
After five minutes, you’re in business because the salt lowers the freezing temperature of the water, allowing your beer to get that perfect, frosty chill as quickly as possible. (Popular Science)

Cell Salesman Steals Sex Video
Here is a good warning for anyone thinking about bringing their cellphone or tablet into a store for service.
A salesman at a T-Mobile store in Florida is under arrest after he found an explicit video on a female customer's phone and emailed it to himself. Cops say the customer brought her phone in to be rebooted. When she picked it up, he noticed that her email had been accessed and her private sexually explicit video had been sent to an unrecognizable email account.
She called police who were able to determine that the email address belonged to the store's employee Roberto Sanches Ramos. The 25-year-old was arrested and charged with a felony. It's also not the first time he's been arrested while working at the T-Mobile store. Last year he was charged with falsifying records to inflate his sales commission figures. (The Smoking Gun)
