How you speak determines what people think, Steven Tyler is annoying and When Animals Attack! 

From PR Newswire - A new Harris Interactive poll asked people around the country what they thought of different accents. Survey says! A southern accent is associated with being nice but uneducated. A British accent was associated with being sophisticated and well educated (good thing I have this one down pat!) A New York accent was associated with being rude, and for us here in the Midwest? Our Scandahoovian accents make us sound like we're nice people, dontcha know.

Steven Tyler just can't let anyone else sing, can he? During Idol auditions last night in Milwaukee, he kept singing with the contestants, accompanying them with table top drums and again, being inappropriate with the young ladies. Tonight, Idol heads to Nashville. Keep up with all of the American Idol Insanity here.

The debate rages on! Who is smarter your cat or your dog? A new study from Oxford University says the answer is DOGS! The study found that evolution proves dog brains evolve much faster than cat brains because dogs are social animals and cats are more isolated. I say crap. I'm not planted in a chair for more than three seconds before my cat is climbing on my head wanting attention.
