Things from the Internets, 4/2

– Did you know we all almost died yesterday? While everyone was foolin’ around, playing jokes on each other, an asteroid sauntered right by Earth, closer than the moon passes by us. Internet says that it had “no chance of hitting us.” Uh huh. Neither did Melancholia — that’s all I’m sayin.’ Oh, also, go … Continue reading

• Of all the things on the internet that you missed today, this was one of them. Have you ever seen beetles make a rat disappear? It’s like magic, but with less illusions and more chewing/eating.
