Our Weird World Barbershop Beers California lawmakers have approved legislation that would make it legal for hair salons and barbershops to offer customers free beer and wine. Assemblyman Tom Daly says many salons already offer drinks while customers are having their hair done, but it is technically illegal. The bill passed the Assembly and now goes to the state Senate. Teen Takes Great-Grandmother To Junior Prom An Indiana teenager who took his 93-year-old great-grandmother to his junior prom says he had a great time, even though her early bedtime nearly cut the night short. Drew Holm says his classmates thought it “was pretty cool” that he asked Kathryn Keith to last Friday’s Crothersville High School junior prom. Holm picked Keith up in her Cadillac for the dance in Seymour, about 60 miles south of Indianapolis. Keith, who wore a blue dress, said she’s proud that he asked her. The pair hit the dance floor for only one song, sharing a slow dance. Their night ended by 9 p.m. because Keith has an early bedtime. Holm then took his girlfriend to an after-prom event at a bowling alley.

At 56 kilobit per second download speeds, dial-up is 200 times slower than the average U.S. broadband speed. Even many smartphones are 100 times faster. More interesting still, a large percentage of those 2.1 million pay up to $20 a month for the service. There are some who pay nothing because they threatened to leave or are in the free trial period.
