Joe proposed to his girlfriend by arranging a picnic and starting it by giving her specially designed Lego sets. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Eleven paintings by Andy Warhol were stolen from a home in Los Angeles, but the owner decided to pass on claiming $25 million because he didn't want to go through the hassle of the insurance claim?

2. Scientists have figured out how to manipulate the pheromones of fruit flies and make them sexually irresistible - - to the opposite sex, the same sex, and other species.

3. "Fox's Bill O'Reilly has around 3.5 million people watching each night, or about 1% of American adults. That would get you canceled on broadcast television. The three nightly newscasts have about 20 million viewers, not 3.5 million." Via.
