  1. “In Copenhagen, man jumped into the enclosure holding a 1,000 lb. polar bear … (and was rescued more or less intact. We wonder why?)”
    Such a video could have become such a great public service message.

    “Here’s How to dump costly cable/satellite TV for cheap internet services. (Cutting the cord … )”
    We went the antenna TV route four years ago. So far it has netted us $4,300 (we had a cheap cable deal to begin with).
