In Japan, 24-hour convenience stores may shorten their hours to help limit carbon dioxide emissions. They could close at 11 p.m. and reopen again at 7 a.m.

ice-cream-charles-140.jpgBlog Guy, I’m the reader who collects pictures of rich people eating ice cream. You really helped me out with that shot of Warren Buffett and a popsicle. I’m expanding my collection to include prominent leaders eating ice cream, and I wonder if you have anything to contribute.
