Blade Runner

From the why-didn't-I-think-of-that department comes a new tool from Goldblatt that uses magnets to score drywall on both sides at the same time.  It's expensive at about $85, but probably well worth it if you're doing any significant amount of drywall.

American Justice: $240,000.00 T-Shirt

One Raed Jarrar was asked by JetBlue employees to cover the Arab script on his t-shirt because it made other passengers uncomfortable. He agreed to cover his shirt in-flight with one provided by JetBlue. He then sued JetBlue and was awarded $240,000.00 for this egregious infringement of his rights.

The Arab script on his shirt said, "We will not be silenced."

Boy, he wasn't kidding.
