For moderate social drinkers, hopping on the wagon for a month shouldn't have been that daunting of a task. Not just any moderate social drinkers, but a handful of men and women who are exceptionally fit, as in training-for-a-marathon fit. These are people used to discipline and healthy lifestyles, people who can get through a rigorous boot camp class without hurling. Yet some found that wagon trip much more uncomfortable than they thought, and didn't even last a month.

In 1961, Debra Reels-Mothershed entered kindergarten at Johnson Elementary School in Southeast San Diego. In 1988, she is still going to school there, only now she is the head of the class. "I am now teaching the kids of some of the people I went to school with, in the same classroom," she said.

When the boss does it, he's a savvy businessman and gets a bonus. When Joe Average Computer Guy does it, he gets a pink slip. Apparently, what's good for the tech goose isn't OK for the computer gander. I'm talking about job outsourcing, of course. The Times' Alana Semuels reported Thursday on the strange case of “Bob,” a computer software developer at an unnamed U.S. company who “unbeknownst to his bosses, hired a Chinese developer to do his job, allowing him to take home impeccable performance reviews while actually spending the day watching cat videos and shopping on EBay.” Bob's very clever scheme was uncovered when officials noticed the company's computer network was being accessed daily by someone in from Shenyang, China, using Bob's account.
