Wow! A lot of people have already found my cache! The first person found it an hour after it was published on Geocaching.com. Here's one of the log entries:
After the head's up in The Daily Dave and the hint a couple weeks ago I knew exactly what we were looking for. TFTC!
You may have no idea what this is all about. It's called Geocaching, and it's a treasure hunt. I put a "cache" near the Leesville Library in North Raleigh -- all the details are here. The hint is the picture above. Follow your GPS into the woods, and when you see those crazy roots, you're pretty much at ground zero. Good luck!

And just like that -- you're not fat!
Good news, the official Body Mass Index may be adjusted giving tall people a break on what is defined as "overweight." Oxford University says the current BMI is flawed showing tall people too fat and short people too thin. For example, someone who is 6'2 would be considered overweight at 195 pounds. The revised BMI for someone 6'2 is 224 pounds. A 5'10 inch person would be considered overweight under the old standards at 185 pounds. Now it's 192 pounds.
But the smaller you get, the more weight you have to lose, according to the revised method of calculating BMI. For example, someone who is 5'4 used to be overweight at 146 pounds... now it's 143. Dangit! source

A man is recovering from surgery when the Surgical Nurse appears and asks him how he is feeling.
"I'm O. K. but I didn't like the four letter-words the doctor used in surgery," he answered.
"What did he say," asked the nurse.
That joke goes perfectly with this story: Surgeons Leave 16 Items in Man's Body After Routine Operation
