Two by two

Two by two

Ready for high water: After 20 years of labor, a Dutchman has launched a life-size, fully functional model of Noah's Ark, using the construction details given by God to Noah in the Old Testament as his guide.

But when it comes to boats, the most divine wisdom of all is this: "Verily, the best day of a boat owner's life shall be that blessed day he selleth the vessel."

Kid Konfidential: A Federal Trade Commission study has found that makers of smartphone apps aimed at children are secretly collecting data from kids.

Which means the marketing departments of America now know the most closely held secret of all: Which boy your 13-year-old daughter kind of likes, but not really, and OMG don't tell anyone.

In large-print format, we trust: The unstoppable money-making machine known as the Rolling Stones has published a coffee table book chronicling the band's 50-year career.

This Christmas season, the books may well replace calendars as the go-to gift for grumpy old guys who insist they don't need anything.
