A federal appeals court ruled this week that a girl conceived in vitro with her deceased father’s sperm is not eligible to receive his Social Security benefits.

The Blaze writer Tiffany Gabbay posted a story last week about a father that did the unthinkable – he abandoned his son in a foreclosed house while he skipped town.
But before we get our mock “father of the year” stamps out – this story is more complicated than it seems on the surface.
You know those Bud Light “Real Men of Genius” ads you hear on the radio? Well, I can hear another one spinning up right now… “Reeeeaaaal Men of Geeeniusssssssss…Here’s to you, Mr. Dad who forgot to pick up more bubble bath for the kids, and had to use his own new shower soap to pacify the kid’s demands for bubbles at bath time. Like Charles Goodyear who accidentally invented vulcanized rubber, or that other jack-wagon who invented silly putty, you single-handedly discovered the best possible use for Old Spice Hair-Body Wash 2-in-1 – making epic amounts of durable bubbles for your kids to play in.”
And that’s exactly what happened about a week ago when I ran out of bubble bath for the kids.
Now we’ve reviewed bubble bath products before, and recommended them merely on the lack of any alternative products out there. We are still right about making that call, because all baby bath and bubble products are crap. Trust me. I’ve tried them all. If you find one I haven’t tried, I defy you post the name of it here, and I will try it.
Or maybe I won’t, because Old Spice just unintentionally solved the problem of crappy bubble bath. Period.
When I first started talking to Kelly Lester about her “Easy Lunchboxes,” she suggested that I use catch-phrases like:
But I insisted that since this is a father’s website, that, no offense to the charm of her products, dudes like me think in a different way. That’s why I’m proud to announce these features of Easy Lunchboxes:
No matter whether you think like me or Kelly, however, I’ve got to say, these Easy Lunchboxes are big winners. Really. Everyone – man, woman and child – have something to use these things for. And despite some very minor details, these containers are one of the more useful tupperware-type things you can use for a toddler’s food and snacks. Okay, that’s over-stating it a little, but Easy Lunchboxes are awesome. And I love them.

One of the best things to ever happen to First Sergeant Patrick Thomas and Private Tyler Thomas’ father-son relationship has been a recent deployment Iraq, where both are currently working as part of Operation New Dawn. Talk about a family vacation.
The Thomas family has a strong heritage of Army service. Patrick’s dad (and Tyler’s grandpa) was a Sergeant Major, the highest enlisted grade in the Army. With that in mind, it probably makes sense that Patrick would describe his and son Tyler’s relationship as “the typical father and son relationship,” even though he was deployed during Tyler’s birth during Operation Desert Shield and has admittedly spent a lot of time away from home working the kind of long hours the military is known for. When your dad is a career Army dude, this is probably how you think of “the typical father and son relationship.”
Look, let’s not muddle up the main point with facts: the Löopa Gyro Bowl isn’t perfect. Yes, it’s dishwasher-safe. It’s BPA-free. It’s (according to their website) “virtually indestructible.” That means, as far as I know, that you can’t destroy it in virtual reality worlds like Second Life. The Gyro Bowl is a whole lot of great things, I guess. But unfortunately, it also looks like a toy and a challenge for kids. The minute some punk kid (read: your kid) sees that the inner-bowl rotates 360 degrees in every direction, the kid is most-definitely going to try to spill whatever’s in the bowl. Adults, believe it or not, will try to spill whatever’s in the bowl too.
