Beer Me
Ever wish you had a robot to do the important things in life for you, like get a beer from the fridge for you? Your wish has been granted. The folks at Willow Garage have created an application for their PR2 robot called Beer Me, which enables you to order the beer of your choice and have it brought to you while you remain seated comfortably in your chair. It will even open the bottle! Click here to see PR2 in action.  

Pecan Pie Day
Today is Pecan Pie Day. Yes, someone thought the middle of July was a good time for Pecan Pie Day. Regardless of the strange timing, celebrate today's holiday, break out the booze and make Southern Comfort Pecan Pie. Booze and Pie sounds like a great way to improve a Monday.
