The recession continues to inspire people to do stupid stuff to avoid paying money. This week's example: the teen who got stuck in a Coke machine after he tried to get a free can of soda. The teen thought if he slid his hand up the machine the right way he might get a free soda, but he was wrong. The rescue process involved two fire trucks an an ambulance.

The Onion, a satirical news website and newspaper, didn't get many laughs on Thursday when it tweeted that there'd been a shooting at the U.S. Capitol. Twitter users immediately responded by asking whether this was a joke or if the site had been hacked. The Onion office in New York confirmed that the tweet was not a hack, saying: "This is satire. That's how it works."

ST PETERSBURG, Fl. -- The Rays reached the playoffs for the third time in four years with a great run down the stretch to overtake the slumping Red Sox.

If a team understands that records don't mean anything, it's this year's Tampa Bay squad. Last season, the Rays entered the playoffs with the best record in the American League, but they got bounced in the American League Division Series by the Rangers -- the same squad they'll face in a best-of-five showdown starting Friday afternoon.
