Note* My preschool age son has been asking "what if everyone in the world" questions lately and so he gave me this idea. Thanks buddy. I owe you one.

Duracell Coppertop Batteries - Bad Quality

One 9-volt in smoke detector "popped" and the detector started "chirping." Two AAA in the programmable thermostat failed the first night and I woke up at 4:00 AM to a house that was 59 degrees F. Both times the batteries were new and had dates well into the future (the AAA's were 2025). There is apparently no quality control. They are made in China.

The Minnesota Vikings football team has regained its missing fumbling game with the return of Adrian Peterson. While numerous announcers have commented that the running back has such a strong grip that it "hurts" to shake hands with him, he still cannot hold onto the football very well. The much anticipated return after an early season injury, has reestablished the Vikings fumbling abilities and should greatly improve their downward spiral that began just after the bye week.

The team stands by their teammates who have been accused and cleared and then suspended for allegedly sexually assaulting a drunk girl. Rah rah go team!
