6 Badass Kids Who Ran Away from Home With a Vengeance – [Cracked]
Paterno Passed On Home to His Wife for $1 Before Sandusky Scandal Broke – [NY Times]
Joe Paterno transferred full ownership of his house to his wife, Sue, for $1 in July, less than four months before a sexual abuse scandal engulfed his Penn State football program and the university.
Documents filed in Centre County, Pa., show that on July 21, Paterno’s house near campus was turned over to “Suzanne P. Paterno, trustee” for a dollar plus “love and affection.” The couple had previously held joint ownership of the house, which they bought in 1969 for $58,000.
According to documents filed with the county, the house’s fair-market value was listed at $594,484.40. Wick Sollers, a lawyer for Paterno, said in an e-mail that the Paternos had been engaged in a “multiyear estate planning program,” and the transfer “was simply one element of that plan.” He said it had nothing to do with the scandal.

Something really weird happens between the time you put your dinner in the fridge and the time you heat it up the next day. Once heavenly fried chicken deflates into a soggy mess; perfect salad wilts; even basic pasta turns into dense sludge.
This kind of wtf moment happens to us a lot. So we started to wonder, fork hovering over a lackluster Tupperware full o’ gunk: What happens to leftovers in that dark, cold box? Demons? In a manner of speaking, yes.
