New iPad 3 set for possible launch of March 16

http://twitter.com/#!/Mosheh/status/177065955946545152

9 To 5 Mac:

We’ve been told by a Apple Store source who has been reliable in the past that preparations are being made for a big Apple Store event which will culminate on Friday, March 16th. Naturally, this points to an iPad 3 launch on the Friday just nine days after tomorrow’s announcement. We’ve previously noted that an Apple Store in London at the world famous Harrod’s will open on that date as well as a new Store in Houston, Texas.

Rep. Tom Price calls for IRS’ Sarah Hall Ingram to be suspended

http://twitter.com/#!/ellencarmichael/status/350651763801595905

Ingram is the former commissioner for the scandalicious IRS office responsible for tax-exempt organizations. She is now in charge of IRS implementation of Obamacare.

That doesn’t sit well with Georgia Rep. Tom Price. He is calling for Ingram’s suspension pending further investigation into her role in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups:

http://twitter.com/#!/RepTomPrice/status/350653224669298690

From the official press release:

“There are still important questions to be answered regarding Ms. Ingram’s role in the systemic harassment of conservative and religious organizations by individuals within the department for which she was responsible at the IRS,” Rep. Tom Price said. “Reasonable people have legitimate doubts about the trustworthiness of the agency wholly, as well as concerns about Ms. Ingram’s previous leadership of the tax exemption department that would preclude her from being able to prudently and impartially enforce the rules and regulations of Obamacare. Until these questions are answered satisfactorily, Ms. Ingram’s employment at the IRS should be suspended.”

When You See What Was Inside This Mantis, You’ll Stay Far Away From All Bugs

I’ve always been a fan of insects.

Even as a little girl, I would march straight into my backyard after school and study them for hours on end. I never found them to be as scary as other kids did, but even I think this bug video is beyond horrifying.

I know you’ll all agree when you watch what happens as this guy dips a praying mantis into water and nightmare fuel comes out.

Why, nature, why?!

That monstrosity is a horsehair worm, which burrows inside a bug as a larva and controls its brain. When it becomes fully grown, it makes the insect drown itself in water and then exits its host.

UH UH. NO. I’m out of here.
