Thankfully, he can't follow through because the police close in.
The shooting is sure to reignite the debate on armed guards at schools.
Those are your five biggies for the day. Here are a few other stories that are brewing and have the Internet buzzing.
We should talk. Wait! Never mind:
The Internet is howling after Dr. Phil posted a tweet asking whether having sex with a drunk girl is OK. The tweet was soon taken down. But the damage was done. People are tweeting like crazy, calling him out for creepiness and insensitivity.
Well, that was very interesting:
Ric Flair would be proud, Nick Selby. The only thing you forgot in your enthusiastic speech was a "Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"
The Georgia Tech sophomore was asked to give a welcome speech to the freshman class at Georgia Tech. And for the first few minutes it was the typical address.
But then Nick went for the big ending, complete with accompanying music. The audience was, shall we say, subdued in its response and many in the crowd were left with expressions of incredulity and prayers they wouldn't be sharing a dorm room with him.
That better be some mighty fine H20:
When the downfall of American society is eventually documented, we're willing to bet the phrase "certified water sommelier" will be included.
As Eatocracy reports, Ray's and Stark bar in (brace yourself) Los Angeles has a water sommelier named Martin Riese, a man who literally wrote the book on water (in German).
Their water tasting menu has obnoxious phrases like "pairs well with sweet wine and cheese" and "pleasantly soft and velvety." Some of us still drink out of the faucet, dude.
Awww, cute and furry - and KILLERS!!!:
There just aren't enough movies about killer squirrels. Actually, there are. Zero is fine, but it looks like there will be one.
We're still a little skeptical if "Squirrels" is real but several blogs, including Bleeding Cool, say it is in the works. Paging Mr. Ziering, Mr. Ian Ziering!
That's how the cookie stumbles::
Oreos are great. Loved 'em since we were kids. Double Stuf would be twice as good, right? Oh, how wrong we were.
Seems a math professor and his students used actual class time taking apart Oreos and weighing them (We hope they properly discarded the remnants). Turns out they aren't all they're stuffed up to be.
The folks at Oreo take issue with the results of the test and assure us there really is two times the creme in the Double Stuf.
Perhaps we should do our own tests.
There you go. All you need to know to get an early start to your morning.
