* The Tuesday forecast for Omaha: "Not as windy as Monday." The worst solar storm on the surface of the sun is not as windy as it was Monday in Omaha.

* Omaha officials claim they received reports of 500 potholes in January. Five hundred potholes? That sounds like the average Omaha intersection.

* The new American male sex symbol is ... Clete Blakeman?

* Twitter stock recently fell to an all-time low. It's gotten to the point where you get 20 retweets and they give you a share.

* Young people may not believe this, but there was a time before Facebook when people did not waste pretty much their entire lives looking at photos posted by people they will never meet.

* A European filmmaker has produced a movie featuring nothing but paint drying. This was still more exciting than Sunday's Super Bowl.

* Peyton Manning called Cam Newton "extremely humble" in defeat. This is a mandatory concussion protocol for Manning, right?

* After the Super Bowl, Peyton Manning kept talking about Budweiser. He's basically a spokesman for Budweiser. So does this mean Eli Manning is promoting Bud Lite?

* Two days after Coldplay's halftime performance, half of Americans still think it was Maroon 5.

* The air you breathe in the office can make you dumber. Just not dumb enough to believe this study.

* I was thinking about recent Super Bowl traditions. The opening coin flip, the halftime extravaganza, the current investigation of the winning team’s star quarterback ...

* Shaquille O’Neal claims he was paid at LSU. It’s not a big deal. He was only paid for made free throws and it amounted to $7.

* The NBA All-Star Game is being played in Canada. So Ted Cruz will call the winner’s locker room?

* Pete Rose will be inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. At this point Rose would take the Bobblehead Hall of Fame.
