Well I guess this is growing up. Marketed under the guise of Protein Power Packs, or P3, Oscar Meyer has launched a new product that's basically an adult Lunchable. The packs, which the company announced Feb. 24, are "designed for active consumers looking for a snack to help keep them going throughout the day," according to a press release. In reality, that means it's a three-compartment plastic pack that looks a lot like a skinny Lunchable filled with meat, nuts and cheese.

As the son of a former player and coach in the NBA, Mike Dunleavy Jr. has been around basketball his entire life.

More important, who knows when Derrick Rose comes back and how effective he'll be?

Virgins: They Are People, Too. Did you know 100 percent of people were once virgins? It's true. And now Psychology Today has another interesting statistic about these mysterious creatures. According to one study, a full 3 percent of adult Americans say they will wait until marriage to have sex. That's about ten million people keeping their pants on until the big day (or, presumably, the night after the big day, but if you've been waiting that long, I'd do it in the limo on the way to the reception too)

The two brothers should have been choosing the colleges they would attend, but instead they were behind bars, unsure whether they would graduate from high school at all. After getting arrested three years ago for breaking into businesses in the northwest suburbs to steal booze, the teens remained in jail for a few months as they waited their turn to attend a four-month boot camp as their sentences. At 17, they had been charged as adults with felony burglary. Had circumstances unfolded a few years later, everything might have been different.
