1.) If you’ve thought about getting back at your ex by posting the nude photos you have of them on the internet, it’s now illegal – at least in California. Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 255 yesterday, making it a misdemeanor to post identifiable nude pictures of someone else online without permission, with the intent to cause emotional distress or humiliation. The penalty for what is being referred to as “revenge porn” is up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. The American Civil Liberties Union had opposed the bill, arguing it might restrict free speech rights, which has been a concern in other states as well.
2.) If you’re convinced your dog is a genius, now you can prove it. Dognition is a website that determines how empathetic your dog is, how clever he or she is at solving problems, and how much your pooch actually understands what you're saying. When you visit the site, simply fill out a questionnaire and put your dog through some games and tests. Your dog will be assigned a personality trait that can be compared to other dogs of similar age, size, and breeds.
3.) If you wonder why so many people from Ohio relocate to South Carolina, maybe it’s because of the rats. Columbus, the capitol of the Buckeye State has a big problem with rats and doesn’t have money to remove them since the current public health budget doesn’t have funding for rat control. Lawmakers won’t be able to amend their spending plan until early next year. In the mean time, the Columbus Dispatch is reporting the government’s solution is to post fliers in the hardest hit areas and educate people about the ways of rats … but not about how to remove the rodents.
