It makes sense; they’re both aluminum cylinders

It makes sense

They are both made out of aluminum cylinders: Boeing says it will give its workhorse 737 a new more-efficient engine to better compete with Airbus’ A320neo, which also has a new engine. The latest version of the Boeing plane has been dubbed the 737 MAX.

In a cross-promotional deal, the new planes will be painted like a Pepsi MAX can.

Let’s see what the Lentil Festival does: The Hoquiam Loggers Playday festival is selling T-shirts showing a logger throwing Osama bin Laden into a river with the caption “Osama Bin Loggin” as a scholarship fundraiser. While the shirts are popular with many, others have complained that the shirts are in poor taste.

Considering that loggers routinely work with chain saws, axes, steel cables and huge tractors, we think they showed amazing restraint.

Keeping cool at school: It’s time to start thinking about packing school lunches again, and health experts are warning parents to take steps to keep lunches cool so food doesn’t spoil. Among the tips: Buy an insulated lunch bag and slip a frozen juice box in with the rest of the lunch.

Along with keeping the food from spoiling, it also gives the lunch you lovingly packed for your child a higher trade value on the open Twinkie market.
