TIL that Mythbusters were going to do an episode which highlighted the immense security flaws in most credit cards, but Discovery was threatened by, and eventually gave into immense legal pressure from the major credit card companies.

Scientists find key to unwanted thoughts. The discovery may help explain why some people can't shift persistent intrusive thoughts - a common symptom of anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and schizophrenia.
Sources tell @YahooSports that the breadth and depth of material in discovery in the Basketball corruption cases will alter the sport of college basketball. Hall of Fame coaches, Lottery picks and top programs are all exposed to significant sanctions.
