Gotta Watch: Scanner-proof undies; Anderson reads Snooki; face blindness

Don't touch my junk! Or look at it – Instead of protesting the TSA's more intimate pat-down procedures, an Ohio man is trying to make a little coin off of them. His new line of undergarments for both men and women feature carefully placed patriotic emblems to cover your, well, you know.

[cnn-video url=""%5D Snooki tops 'RidicuList' – And now for a dramatic reading of "A Shore Thing" by Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. CNN's Anderson Cooper got his hands on a copy and reads some of his favorite excerpts. If you listen carefully, you may hear the cries of unsigned book authors weeping in the background.

Can’t place the face – Imagine looking in the mirror and not being able to recognize your own face. It happens sometimes to neurologist Oliver Sacks, who has had a brain disorder known as face blindness his entire life. As Sacks put it, he sees all the features on a face, but they don’t add up to a recognizable image. And that can hold true for even the most famous faces he sees. CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta finds out how Sacks has learned to navigate a world in which faces are mostly a blur.

      Sometimes I wonder that myself... not because we've spawned people like Snooki but because we've spawned a nation of people who are willing to tune in and watch her.

      But we do have Bill Gates and, nowadays, Christopher Hitchens. So it ain't all bad.

    ROFLOL @ ANDERSON COOPER! As an aspiring writer who actually possesses a smidgen of genuine talent (versus Snooki, that is), I think Snooki's endeavor is hilarious. I'm not threatened in the slightest bit by it. In fact, I hope it sells like hotcakes and she goes on to live a comfortable live. She's an idiot, but God Bless her for keeping me entertained, lol.

    Look out and good-bye novels and classics! There's a new sheriff in town, and her name is Nicole Polizzi. Ha! I am definitely going to read that book. I bet Snooki has wonderful insight on the deeper, more meaningful things in life... such as how to get away with cheating at bear-pong. I say we all just run over to Friggin Barns and noble and buy it right now! (you look at this and wonder how some people cant see why America is becoming less and less literate. The fact some people, myself included actually know Snooki's real name is horrendous to me)
