Tiger Woods Turns 37

The Golf Blog: Happy 37th Birthday, Tiger Woods! | The Golf Blog:

"The Golf Blog says: Tiger Woods turns 37 tomorrow. That means he needs 5 more majors in the next 10 years–assuming he follows Jack Nicklaus’s pattern of obtaining his last major by age 46–in order to beat Jack’s record of 18 majors. With that pace, Tiger needs to win 1 major every 2 years in order to set the all-time record. The pace seems at least within the realm of possibility, if not plausibility."

Champagne Corks - Vision Damage Danger

Eye doctors warn of champagne: You could poke an eye out with that — State — Bangor Daily News — BDN Maine:

"Champagne bottles contain pressure as high as 90 pounds per square inch — more than the pressure found inside a typical car tire,” the academy announcement states, in part. “This pressure can launch a champagne cork at 50 miles per hour as it leaves the bottle, which is fast enough to shatter glass. Unfortunately, this is also fast enough to permanently damage vision.” "

Crooks Use New Device To Open Hotel Locks

This is alarming. Looks like we have to take care of ourselves by using the security chain, and room safe (when they've available).

Rossen Reports: New device lets crooks crack many hotel locks - TODAY News:

"Some insiders are calling it a security crisis at hotels nationwide: A breach, leaving you more vulnerable.
When you lock your hotel door, you assume you're safe and your stuff is safe. Don't be so sure: Thieves have invented a small, simple device that can unlock hotel doors at some of the most popular chains. Some hotels have known about this security problem for months -- so why hasn't it been fixed?"
