If you want to know how boring it was, even the records were boring: With a final line of 13-3, it was the lowest-scoring game ever. Johnny Hekker of the Rams also kicked a 65-yard punt, the longest in Super Bowl history.
You know things are slow when one of the most notable plays of the night was a punt.
And to top it all off, the Patriots won AGAIN, which is about as predictable an outcome as is possible, statistically speaking.
Leaving Facebook makes people happier but less informed, study says:
Leaving Facebook may be good for your emotional well being, but you could be less informed about current events.
A new report from researchers at New York University and Stanford University looked at what happened to people who deactivated their accounts. The researchers paid people $102 to turn-off their Facebook (FB) accounts for four weeks.
