This morning, a huge meteor landed in the Ural regions of Russia. Leaving a trail of smoke, this giant fireball whizzed across the sky and created a tremble that nearby residents reported "felt like an earthquake." These shockwaves broke windows and injured many, and as many as 20,000 workers were sent to help assist in the damage in the region.
There are unconfirmed reports that the meteor was blown up by missile defense before it landed, and, of course, there are rumors floating around the internet about aliens and UFOs.
The weirdest thing to me about it, is that none of the drivers seem phased at all about it.
This Valentine's Day, Justin Timberlake unveiled his Suit and Tie video a week ahead of the UK release date. The video begins by showing Jay-Z watching television and Timberlake eating cereal, but things pick up when Timberlake starts dancing.
The video, which was directed by the director of "The Social Network", was shot in black and white, but that did not take away from the excitement of the video at all. Timberlake's "comeback single" will debut on his album 20/20 which goes on shelves 3/19.
You can watch the video here:
With each generation that comes and goes, different traditions and sayings come and go too. One tradition that affected by sayings that change is the tradition of those little candy hearts. This year, a lot of candy hearts are retiring from their fame and infamy.
Among the ones that are retiring, here are some of the better ones:
HEP CAT . . . DIG ME . . . GROOVY . . . FAX ME . . . and YOU ARE GAY.
Personally, I don't really understand retiring "Fax Me."
I would think faxing someone would be romantic. Like writing someone something on a typewriter made of dinosaurs.
Porta potties are pretty miserable things to have to use, but someone found an interesting way to use one on a golf course in Oklahoma. This Tuesday, the employees reported finding strange bottles inside of the porta potties.
It turns out someone had turned the inside of the porta potty into a mini-Meth Lab. The cops have found prints and a have a suspect, but I'd hate to be the guy who has to use a porta potty that turns out to be a meth lab equipped with a live tweaker.
