Snoop Dogg rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Read that again. He was on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien the other night, and he declared that "the stock was at an all-time high" the day he was there.

It is not that impressive other than providing visual evidence. Conan also demoed the Snoop TomTom GPS system when Snoop was on. In a related story I have not wanted a GPS because I thought it would make me weak and too dependent on technology... until NOW.
