Weekly News

Wednesday is back, and it has brought a snowpocalypse with it. What is that you ask? Well, it’s basically a blizzard with some really cool satellite imagery of a cyclone spinning above my state. What it really amounts to is about a foot of snow and some intense winds for the day. It sounds way more scary on the news, and it probably feels way more intense if you get stuck driving in it. For those of us lucky enough to stay home? It’s basically a snow day. Enough of my own news, it’s time for the weirdness I found elsewhere.

This first story illustrates the best prank birthday gift I’ve ever heard.

Next up, a story of surviving being trapped in the snow with hot sauce. Taco Bell’s annoying packets to the rescue.

Last, but definitely not least, farting stars. The headline was most definitely clickable, but the discovery of partner stars farting away their mass was the icing on the science cake. Delicious!

That’s all for Snowpocalypse 2019. I’ll see you again in seven–hopefully with a far less dramatic intro.

  1. I don;t go anywhere without water. That guy was lucky.

  2. The billboard was funny. Although annoying if it’s someone he knows trying to get through.
    Bet that guy takes a winter survival kit with him next time. Taco Bell sauce – disgusting.
    Someone else posted photos of the blizzard and whiteout. I remember those all too well when I lived in the Midwest.
