Living in a museum for a full month looked easy, thanks to 24-year-old theater artist Kate McGroarty. McGroarty won the chance to live in Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry for 30 days and it looks like her time is finally up.
According to CNN.com, the stunt was done for a way to publicize the museum to the community more. During her stay McGroarty spent her time actually living in the museum's exhibits, blogged every day and had catered meals. She luckily got to get out and take care of any errands during the day though. Her responsibility for winning was to interact with visitor's.
ABC News also mentioned that her favorite was getting in a quick catnap in some of the hidden away areas where she was unseen. Friends visited the adventurous McGroarty and she usually stayed away from the clown area of the museum during the night. There clowns, after all.

I already know what I’m predicting. Turkeys Take Back Thanksgiving and Attack People. What? It could happen.
Thanksgiving stuffing, mashed potatoes and some type of casserole that should be appealing to eat on such an occasion but really just looks like last year's leftovers. Thanksgiving is a few days away and the fasting has just begun in preparation. The eating and family get together's are memorable, but who wants to eat their whole days worth of calories in one sitting then have to clean up afterward? Yea, didn't think so.
In 2009 Panasonic unveiled an updated version of a dish washing robot in Tokyo that seems to be quite fitting for such a turkey holiday. No, no. This is serious.
Moving to California for snowboarding is spontaneous. Keeping his Back East Stencil Geek roots is quite another.
Growing up in Massachusetts, 23-year-old Keegan Flynn first found his passion for stencil art thanks to his AP Art teacher Mr. Barry. After working one afternoon in his woodshop’s spray booth, Keegan didn’t just go home with some portfolio self portraits. He went home knowing stenciling was where he wanted to direct his attention.
Amazon is closing the books and opening up to a new movie production company.
Amazon announced that they plan to set aside $2.7 million a year to help aspiring filmmakers get noticed. Projects can be submitted to the new Amazon Studios website where fans can choose their favorite.
Working as the middle man, Amazon will then pitch to Warner Bros. in the hopes that a Hollywood film will soon be developed. There's no issue if one isn't steady with a camera either. Talent can also submit scripts.
Submissions must be in by Dec. 31, 2011 with Amazon holding the rights of the work for 18 months.

“I always loved the movie Office Space as a kid, but never really understood how true the references were until I graduated from college and got into the corporate world. I hated having to wake up early to do something that I hated doing, and, like [the character] Peter, ‘ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it.’”
Does this way of thinking strike a chord? According to Tyler Galganzki, this is exactly the way he once felt. That is, until him and friend Dave Hibler decided to do something about it. “Ironically enough, I spent my days working hard to figure out ways that I could get away with doing less work. It's not that I was lazy or didn't want to work. It's that I just didn't care. That's when I realized that I wanted to work for myself and make my work my passion: Laziness. I had had enough of corporate politics, multiple bosses, pointless meetings and mission statements. I knew that there was no way that I was going to last another 40 years of my life in such an environment.”
According to National Geographic's Greendex, India is currently the greenest country in the world.
The country takes first for the second year in a row being ranked as 62.6 percent green. The country beat out the other 16 countries that are indexed because of the way they maintain their goods and foods indexes.
Who's the lowest? Well, Americans. Let's just take a peek into the mirror shall we? America is the lowest for the third consecutive year in a row. There does seem to be an increasing trend though. The US score is up 1.3 points since 2009 and 2.6 from 2008.
Going green. Changes being made in a worldly effort.
New remote control pillow—for those who tend to lose the remote and those who apparently have a brown color schemed living room.
Pillow Universal Remote Control is a fully functional remote with fabric buttons sewn-in. It does everything a regular remote can do such as turning up and down the volume, changing the channel and accessing the DVD and VCR.
Creative, yet bland. Buyer's are sure to give it a try if more color choices became available. Just be careful to not fall asleep and leave a drool stain. The $30 cushion does take two AAA batteries.
