1. Linda Hamilton wants to be taken to the Marine Corps Ball by the sergeant who was turned down by Betty White: Aww, it's like a Sadie Hawkins dance now, with celebrities asking Marines for dates! Except who is going to turn down Sarah Connor, honestly?

Come with me if you want to live!

2. Al Roker and Ryan Gosling reenact "Dirty Dancing" There's a law I just made up, that as soon as Al Roker discovers something, it is officially passé. Sorry, Ryan Gosling and dancing.

3. Texas man gets $300K home for $16 Yay for adverse possession law, which allowed Kenneth Robinson to move into a foreclosed home for less than $20. Neighbors? Less than thrilled.

4. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake give us "The History of Rap," part deux Which do you like better, the original or this version?

5. "One Day on Earth" trailer This project looks legitimately awesome: getting filmmakers from every country in the world to shoot 24 hours of continuous footage on Oct. 10, 2010, and then upload their videos to The movie will be edited and premiered right before the next upload date, 11/11/11.
