A sampling of Thursday morning's headlines from some CNN affiliates nationwide:
Two North Carolina grannies are tired of seeing men's rear ends because their pants hang low. So Beverly Terry and Sandy Diehl decided to strike back, according to CNN affiliate WBTV-TV in Charlotte, North Carolina.
You could call it a version of an eye for an eye – or perhaps a backside for a backside. The women have created what they are calling "ThongPends" to try to counter the baggie pants issue.
The two decided to launch a video to promote their cause.
"We saw the boys with the saggy baggies hanging out, and we decided how would they like it if their grandmothers had their underwear hanging out?" Terry says in a video on YouTube.
You can watch their pitch here:
There's making your dorm room your new home, and then, well, there's putting a hot tub in one.
An Ohio University student was forced to drain his $500 hot tub with automated jets and a temperature control system after university officials said it was a safety hazard, according to CNN affiliate WEWS-TV in Cleveland.
The school has asked Kevin Lenahan to remove it, but for now the hot tub sits empty in the dorm room while the student appeals the school's decision.
“There is no place in the housing handbook that said my hot tub was not allowed,” Lenahan said. “My hot tub heater is fundamentally the same as a coffee maker.”
Tired of rising gas prices, a group of families in Arizona has turned to another solution: natural gas pumps inside home garages.
While gas prices near the $4 a gallon mark, some families have decided to shell out $6,000 for a system they hope will save them big money in the end.
"Since we got the unit in the house, it's $1.42 a gallon," Connie Jones told CNN affiliate KTVK-TV in Phoenix.
CNG Services of Arizona tells KTVK that it is serving 400 customers in the area. Using natural gas, these families' cars can get about 200 miles on a full tank, according to KTVK. Natural gas may be not the best for long trips, but when it comes to morning commutes, many of CNG's clients tell the TV station that the investment is well worth it.
