Got a bill for a pricey premium SMS service on your mobile phone but not sure what it is, or how to get it stopped? The newly-launched 19 SMS service can help you out. Enter the number and the date from your bill, and the site will identify who provided the service, how much it costs, and other relevant details. Most importantly, if it's a recurring service that could potentially cost you a bomb, information on how to unsubscribe will be included -- a detail people often misplace. I'd advise against using any 19 services if you can help it, but even if you resist, it's a useful bookmark for tracking what your teenage cousins did with your phone.

The first time I had a weed brownie, I ate way too much. Someone told me to just have half, and, like the idiot novice I was, I stuffed the entire thing in my mouth. It kicked in an hour or so later, when I found myself running through a Brooklyn park thinking I was being chased by evil fairies. Then, I went home, considered calling 911, made my roommate babysit me instead, spilled water in my bed and spent the whole night dreaming I was on a boat. I was fine in the morning.
