Monday Rundown: Bieber Fever of a Different Kind
[box_light] It’s Monday, and if you’re new to Quarterlife Man (welcome), you’re new to the Monday Rundown. The Monday Rundown is a compendium of randomness compiled over the course of each week. Enjoy… [As always, if you've seen something crazy or have a suggestion, email us or tell us on Twitter (@QuarterlifeMan).] [/box_light] [divider]
––Crazy Leadoff Video:
As Americans we think we’re pretty crazy about our sports fandom. In soccer-loving countries, they throw grenades. Check out how close this player was to losing an arm:
From the YouTube description:
[box_light]Sepahan midfielder Adel Kolahkaj picked up a small, black object and tossed it away from the pitch. Turns out that object was some kind of mini grenade or firecracker, which exploded upon landing, causing the referee and his assistant to run for their lives. No one was hurt in the incident, and the game was cancelled initially but players came back on field after security inspection was made.The police officials are still investigating this matter.[/box_light]
––It’s Election Time
If you’re not a political person… tough cookies; it’s election time. If you really hate it you can skip to the next section–––but I IMPLORE YOU–––be educated about this election. It’s the most important election of your lifetime (until the next one, naturally).
With the first debate just two days away (Wednesday night, 9pm–––on just about any channel you can find), things are getting pretty heated. The owner of the New York Jets said he’d rather have a losing football team if it meant the Romney/Ryan ticket wins this November. We’re looking at the high probability of another recession. And that’s only if things don’t change. In addition, the President is having anti-American leaders like Hugo Chavez saying, “I’d vote for you, and you for me.”
What will you do about it?
––Using Coke to Change The World
[box_light]Diarrhea kills 800,000 kids under the age of five every year–deaths that we can easily avert by administering oral hydration salts and zinc tablets. The challenge is getting the treatment to where it’s needed.
Simon Berry first had the idea for ColaLife in Zambia, in 1988, when he noticed that Coke had the best distribution system in the country. While hospitals ran short of basic medicines, stores in remote locations were always full of fizzy drinks. He thought: Why not piggyback on the network to deliver things families need?[/box_light]
Because why not use the world’s best and biggest distribution channel to have a lasting impact on dying kids?

––So Long, Replacement Refs
This week was the first week back with our normal NFL referees–––and thank God–––I was getting tired of this:
––We Leave You With This:
It’s Bieber Fever of a different kind. This is Justin Bieber vomiting on stage. Yes.
