A science lesson went a bit too far after a teacher at Woodside High School in Newport News, VA, showed students before-and-after pictures of her boob job on her iPhone.
The Smoking Gun reports the teacher, 34-year-old MELISSA KIDD, hasn't been charged or arrested, but school officials placed her on unpaid leave in March, after students complained about her, and she later resigned in April.
Dazed, but not confused:
PAUL McCARTNEY has stopped smoking pot. He told the UK's Daily Mirror that at age 72, he doesn't touch the wacky weed anymore. He said (quote), "The truth is I don't really want to set an example to my kids and grandkids. It's now a parenting thing." So, how does Sir Paul relax now? He said (quote), "Instead of smoking a spliff, I'll now have a glass of red wine or a nice margarita."
FYI: Paul allegedly started smoking pot in 1964 when BOB DYLAN introduced THE BEATLES to marijuana. It had been a part of Paul's daily life ever since. In 1980, he got busted trying to bring a half-pound of marijuana into Japan, and he spent nine days in jail. (Marino)

World Naked Bike Day, yeah, it's a real thing. Police in Kent, England, say that normally the "cheeky" event is peaceful and there are very few problems, but this year, one rider caused an a bit of an uprising. Witnesses say one of the riders got a bit "overexcited" and aroused and had to be removed. One witness said: "Everyone was taking their clothes off to get ready for the ride. I heard gasps and I turned around --it was a horrible sight. One of the organizers went over to him and told him to put his trousers on while speaking on a walkie-talkie to police." He left peacefully and dressed. (Myers)
Google has teamed up with Levi Strauss Company to put computers in your pants! (What could possibly go wrong?) The partnership is being called "Project Jacquard." Popular Science says the initiative hopes to "invisibly incorporate computers" into our clothes and home furnishings. They do this by combining "conductive yarns" made of ultra-thin metallic alloys along with common yarns like cottons, silks and polyesters. They're also making computers and power sources for these clothes that are no bigger than the size of a button. Levi is just the first fashion brand Google has partnered up with through Project Jacquard. Their ultimate goal is to make wearable tech less of a novelty and more of something you just expect from your clothes. (Bartha)
