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!

Little jerks = full price!
Good idea? A contributor to Reddit posted a receipt from a restaurant that included a $4 discount for "well-behaved kids." Sweet gesture that I'm sure the parents appreciated, right? But does this send a dangerous message? The Stir doesn't like it and here's why:
--"Eating out with children is already filled with plenty of pressure for parents"
--" Every raised voice, every dropped spoon can make a mom feel like all eyes in the joint are searing into her"
-- There needs to be a certain amount of tolerance for families
Plus, what about the parents that feel their little angels were perfect and still didn't receive the discount? Does the restaurant really want to quarrel with an angry mom?
What about you? Would you like to see a discount for well-behaved children? Is this a good idea or does The Stir bring up some good points?

Grandpa was driving with his 9-year-old granddaughter and beeped the horn by mistake. She turned and looked at him for an explanation.
He said, "I did that by accident."
She replied, "I know that, Grandpa."
He replied, "How did you know?" She said, "Because you didn't say "idiot!" afterwards.
