Rosetta Stone Language Software for $269 on Groupon

Groupon is selling Rosetta Stone Language Solutions at a 40% discount. 

I tried an older version of Rosetta Stone a few years back. While I did learn some vocabulary, I was not speaking Spanish so fast as the software promised. I have heard that the new version is much better than what I tried and that it has a lot of new features.

The Deal

  • Rosettas Stone Version 4 TOTAL`e Level 1-4 for $269 (list price is $449)
  • Available in Spanish, French or Italian
  • Free Shipping

The included Audio Companion allows for mobile language practice on the go.

Jeffrey Dahmer Tour- Milwaukee

Jeffrey Dahmer Mug Shot

This has to be one of the weirder tours that I’ve heard about in a while and I have to say that I’d be totally interested in it…

I’m a big fan of the movie Silence of the Lambs and the show Criminal Minds. Both focus on serial killers which have always been an interesting topic to me.

BAM Marketing and Media is offering a walking tour of Jeffrey Dahmer sites in Milwaukee.

Jeffrey Dahmer is a famous serial killer who murdered 17 men & boys in the late 1970’s until he was caught in 1991. He was beaten to death in prison in 1994. Read about his sick crimes if you are interested by clicking on the link above.

The tour which has caused outrage in Milwaukee was recently offered on Groupon which brought it additional attention.  

Read more about the story from MSNBC click here.
