Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is the biggest politician you've never heard of. A video of the Harvard law professor and consumer advocate firing at Republicans over "class warfare" has gone viral. In it she says, "I hear all this, 'This is class warfare, this is whatever.' No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there, good for you. But I want to be clear you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for." She adds, "Part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along." Warren, who has worked with President Obama, is expected to be a formidable opponent to Republican Scott Brown, who shocked Democrats in 2010 when he won Ted Kennedy's Senate seat. People around the Web are calling the video something "every American needs to see," and some even tweeted, "Elizabeth Warren for president in 2016."

Mysterious markings on Southwest planes have the Web a little worried. The script written in invisible paint on the underbellies of Southwest planes is believed to be Arabic words. But a Southwest employee who's seen the markings told Gawker, "They are on the exhaust pipe of the engines. Usually on the inboard side. And most of them are described as looking like swords" (imagine an "S" shape with a line crossing through it). Reports say the writing was etched with chemicals, and can be seen only after the plane's auxiliary power unit is fired up. The FBI is investigating the matter, but in a statement Southwest says it's vandalism, not terrorism. What do you think? Tell me on Facebook.com/AdrianaDiazNews and Twitter @AdrianaTweeting!
