A QUESTION FOR PEOPLE WHO DESIGN INTERNET ADVERTISING:

When you create ads that not only block our view of whatever site we're trying to look at, but also move around so as to keep blocking our view, do you actually think we're going be receptive to whatever product or service you're trying to sell us? Do you think we go: "Wow! These people are really persevering in their efforts to prevent me from seeing what I am trying to see! I am favorably inclined to give them money!"?

Has it ever occurred to you that our reaction might be: "I would rather French-kiss a moray eel than purchase this service or product"?

Seriously, I'm asking.

CLEAN-UP IN THE FOOD COURT

A group of Nederland mothers is speaking out in support of one of their own after the new mother said she was told to "wrap it up" while breastfeeding her infant inside the LoveSac store at the FlatIron Crossing mall last week.

CHINA: LAND OF WACKY FUN

Park officials in China have found a way to stop people from hogging their benches for too long - by fitting steel spikes on a coin-operated timer.

If visitors at the Yantai Park in Shangdong province, eastern China, linger too long without feeding the meter, dozens of sharp spikes shoot through the seat.
