Are you under the impression that your kids are your responisbilty? Not so! Says college professor/MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry.
What do YOU think of her comments? Leave your thoughts below.
President Obama proposed a $100 million mission to begin mapping the activity in the human brain. But in the meantime, let's look at what we already know . . . with the Top Amazing Facts About the Human Brain.
President Obama wants to map it because it has nothing to do with effectively running the country.
Most of it erodes every time you watch a Michael Bay movie.
If you shove a screwdriver far enough up your nose, you'll stimulate the section of it that makes you do stupid things.

Which is why Gary Busey defies the scientific community.
That adorable kid from "Jerry Maguire" still obsesses over how much it weighs. Well, that and collecting unemployment.
You can keep it sharp by pondering brainteasers like, "Why does anyone listen to Maroon 5?"

It's the end of an era, folks . . . the Sears Portrait Studios just shut down. Modern technology has just killed your right to dress the entire family in hideous matching sweaters, and take awkward photos where you're all staring at a spot slightly off-camera . . .
The Sears Portrait Studio opened in 1959. But in the past decade, people have been buying fewer sessions and fewer photos . . . because of digital cameras, phone cameras, and cheap online photo printing.
The company that runs the Sears Portrait Studio at every Sears location is CPI Corp. They also run about 20% of the portrait studios at Walmart and Babies "R" Us . . . and they shut down both of those too. Sears says they're, quote, "exploring all options" to keep some kind of photo service alive . . . but for now, it's over.
Luckily there's still the great website Awkward Family Photos, which has a TON of the hilarious department store portraits.
