Weekend Reads: Snow Paint, Teens Vaping, and Don’t Take Your Kids to See Deadpool

Happy Presidents Day  and Valentines Day Weekend dear readers.  Hooray for the extra day off school. Boo for temperatures in the teens or lower across much of the USA. On to the links!

If you are lucky enough to have snow yet it is still warm enough to go outside, here’s a nifty arts and crafts project for making Snow Paint out of old markers.

The cool folks at the Cracked Podcast looked into teen rehab centers and scared straight programs, or in their words, “America’s Bizarre Teen Kidnapping Industry”.

Pretty much everyone agrees… Don’t Take Your KidsTo See Deadpool… (but you should go because it looks awesome!)

Finally, OK GO sets the bar even higher in their latest video. And the song is pretty good too.
