Watch as Lindsay Soto tries to cover up her cleavage on live tv (link roundup)

It's tough being a girl. In the middle of trying to interview a hockey player, Lindsay Soto is apparently told she's showing way too much cleavage and spends the rest of the interview trying various techniques to cover up. Via.

And a few more links:

1. The fear was that allowing antiquities to be sold on eBay would encourage looters to redouble their efforts. But what actually happened was the looters decided it was far easier to sell fakes on eBay. Via.

2. Trish Van Pilsum, a reporter for a Fox affiliate in Minnesota, apparently planned on driving around a school trying to ask young children for directions to see how easy it was to kidnap them. I'm not clear whether it happened, or she came to her senses before scaring kids for the sake of journalism. (One Halloween, a creepy van followed me and my friends around until we spotted a security patrol, who scared the guy off.)

3. I'm still on the fence as to whether I think this a sweet story:

Katie Kirkpatrick, 21, held off cancer to celebrate the happiest day of her life. Katie had chased away cancer once, only to have it return - to clog her lungs and grab hold of her heart. Breathing was difficult now, she had to use oxygen. The pain in her back was so intense it broke through the morphine that was supposed to act as a shield. Her organs were shutting down but it would not stop her from marrying Nick Godwin, 23, who was in love with Katie since 11th grade. Five days later, Katie died.

4. Old Honeywell ad shows once upon a time, email was terrifying. (Heck, neither of my parents use it.)
