I can't decide if I qualify as a career girl or not in this hurriedly de-posted Forbes article, but Don't Marry a Career Girl!
If a host of studies are to be believed, marrying these women is asking for trouble. If they quit their jobs and stay home with the kids, they will be unhappy ( Journal of Marriage and Family, 2003). They will be unhappy if they make more money than you do ( Social Forces, 2006). You will be unhappy if they make more money than you do ( Journal of Marriage and Family, 2001). You will be more likely to fall ill ( American Journal of Sociology). Even your house will be dirtier ( Institute for Social Research).
Uh, regarding that last part ...I don't think my house could get dirtier. (Via Bradley J. Fikes in the comments section of Cathy's World.)

Here's a prank on Best Buy, which initially struck me as hilarious, but now I'm not so sure. Eighty "agents" show up wearing Best Buy's uniform colors and hang out in a Manhattan store answering questions of unwitting customers.
Security guards and managers started talking to each other frantically on their walkie-talkies and headsets. "Thomas Crown Affair! Thomas Crown Affair!," one employee shouted. They were worried that were using our fake uniforms to stage some type of elaborate heist. "I want every available employee out on the floor RIGHT NOW!"

From the Forbes article:

those with graduate degrees are 1.75 more likely to have cheated than those with high school diplomas.

And how much more does it go up for those with Master's degrees - especially for yahoos who studied journalism? :)
