Boing, boing

The world's largest game of Pong, the pioneering Atari video game, will be played later this month on the facade of a Philadelphia skyscraper.

In a related milestone, this also will be the first time since 1983 that anyone's played Pong.

Bullet scarcity: A rumor mill-fueled run on ammunition is making it difficult for weapons dealers to keep bullets in stock and has also affected some local police departments across the nation.

The situation has become so dire that there's even talk of voluntary quotas of 7,500 low-recoil rounds per doomsday prepper.

Now, that's a rush: For the first time ever, polling by the Pew Research Center has found that a majority of Americans now favor the legalization of marijuana. Most Americans no longer see marijuana as a dangerous gateway drug, nor do they see its use as immoral.

What a change from just a few short years ago, when most people assumed that support for legalization would have to wait for the presidency of Tommy Chong III in 2040.
