The Weather Channel has never really needed a delay button before, but it may want to look into getting one now.
During a live broadcast from Hurricane Irene-ravaged Virginia on Saturday, reporter Eric Fisher was unexpectedly upstaged when a dude dressed in swim trunks ran behind him, pulled his trunks down and gave “weather front” a whole new meaning.

When rebels stormed Moammar Gadhafi’s compound recently, they found some unusual things that revealed a lot about the Libyan leader. The most interesting item?

A study by technology research firm Gartner, which recently surveyed 6,295 people between the ages of 13 and 74, reveals almost a quarter of 18- to 29-year-olds use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter less than when they first signed up for the services, with many saying the services simply aren’t that much fun anymore.
