Here's Today's Most for Tuesday, August 27th:

TODAY'S MOST...Ridiculous Example of Student Housing: A Chinese father found a perfect place where his kids can stay while they're studying in Sydney, Australia - he bought them a $17 million dollar penthouse! It has everything a college student needs to hit the books - marble in the bathrooms, a 270-degree view of the city, and a rooftop pool. The penthouse was on the market for five years until the man made the purchase. Wonder if the apartment comes with people who will do your homework...

TODAY'S MOST...Disturbing Sign of the Power of the Internet: The country of Japan will hold "Internet-fasting camps" for teenagers in the country. The government believes that over five-hundred thousand kids are addicted to the internet. The camps will encourage the kids, between 12 and 18, to get outside and play and talk to other children. The government of Japan believes internet addiction is behind a rise in sleeping and eating disorders among youth in the area.

TODAY'S MOST...Interesting Lawsuit: Exotic Dancers at a strip club in Colorado are suing their employer - claiming he takes some of their tips and doesn't pay them a wage. Four women are represented by a lawyer who specializes in civil rights cases, and the lawyer wants more dancers to join in the lawsuit. The club's owner says it's routine in the strip club business not to pay dancers - and to treat them as tenants rather than workers. This is a class-action lawsuit, so it's possible it might force many clubs to change the way they do business if the dancers win.
