Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Herman Cain is done

Herman Cain is done. Was he the best man for the job? Not sure, but I know this, the Cain Train has slowed down and it's time for Cain to walk away. The reason Cain is done is pretty simple really. His campaign can't survive the Democrat attacks. Herman Cain has basically been accused of doing everything to a woman you can besides rape. The left hasn't gone there... yet. Instead the left tried to knock down Cain's campaign by rolling out allegations of sexual harassment with no solid proof. Then, her comes this woman claiming she had a 13 year affair with Cain. Of course she also has money problems and a shady background.

The left tried to say he wasn't black enough, then it was he was the white people's way of feeling better. The left could never attack Herman Cain on the issues, so instead they tried to ruin him and his marriage. Maybe I'm wrong and all of these allegations are true. If so, fine... he should still be done but for other reasons. However, I don't buy these stories. Not one person has come forward with proof of any inappropriate behavior.

Yes, Herman Cain is finished. Not because of something he did, but because of what he is. A black conservative.

2. Mall Santas (link)

It's one of the big Christmas traditions when your a kid. Heading to the mall to tell Santa what you want for Christmas. This year though, Santa is being trained.

When confronted with a huge list of 'I wants', Santas are being told to tell them that they can't have everything.

They should also take a look at the children's parents and 'size them up' before promising them something that their mother and father can't afford.

The measures are part of the new syllabus at the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland, Michigan, the New York Times reported.

Dating back to 1937, It is the oldest and most celebrated Santa school in the U.S., but it is now having to move with the times.

Some Santas have been taken aback by young children who have presented them with spread sheet, printouts and cuttings from catalogues instead of a simple wish list.

Could we call this the great Santa downgrade?

3. WiFi is evil (link)

Careful with those Wi-Fi laptops...

In a report in the venerable medical journal Fertility and Sterility, Argentinian scientists describe how they got semen samples from 29 healthy men, placed a few drops under a laptop connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi and then hit download.

Four hours later, the semen was, eh, well-done.

A quarter of the sperm were no longer swimming around, for instance, compared to just 14 percent from semen samples stored at the same temperature away from the computer.

But, it's not a slam dunk case.

So between the heat and the radiation from today's electronic devices, testicles would seem to be hard-pressed.

But that is not at all clear, said Dr. Robert Oates, who has managed to father two kids despite having both a laptop and an iPad.

The president of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology, Oates told Reuters Health he doesn't believe laptops are a significant threat to male reproductive health.

"This is not real-life biology, this is a completely artificial setting," he said about the new study. "It is scientifically interesting, but to me it doesn't have any human biological relevance."

He added that so far, no study has ever looked at whether laptop use has any influence on fertility or pregnancy outcomes.

Just like cell phones. Laptops could be good/bad for your health.
