It's Thursday! Not exactly as good as Friday, but still pretty damn good.

The Internet may not be owned by a few corporations soon because Washington seems to be pretty down with net neutrality!

There is a black hole that is 12 billion times larger than the sun and is 900 million years old.

Zendaya Coleman elegantly explained why assuming dreadlocks smell like “patchouli oil” or “weed” is racist and weird. Giuliana Rancic apologizes. The internet gives Coleman a giant high five.

A new proposal would require Lyft and Uber drivers to provide insurance and undergo extensive background checks.

Surveys conclude that over half of all farm workers in America lack “legitimate documents” and therefore have no legal rights or protection.

By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Feb 25 2015 9:03 AM ]
The Daily Word

Good morning, it’s Wednesday, February 25,

and KOB anchorman Tom Joles is having a time-out after a rumored physical altercation with one of his fellow reporters,

it turns out that even beatniks can be beautiful,

a GQ reporter visited a “Men’s Rights” conference and found out that those guys are kind of a bunch of assholes,

2 million cars in the US are outfitted with remote-shut-off technology that can, and has been, hacked,

aiming laser pointers at police helicopters remains a great way to get arrested, even if you say you're sorry,

students and parents continue to protest an upcoming standardized test,

and a local researcher says the uptick in chupacabra sightings is due in part to global warming.

Have a great day!

By Amelia Olson [ Tue Feb 24 2015 10:35 AM ]

It's Tuesday and the sun is shining here in Albuquerque. JK! It's freezing.

It’s snowing! It’s snowing! CLOSE ALL THE SCHOOLS! CANCEL WORK!

You’re chewing too loud! Apparently there is a name for the feeling of rage you experience when the person next to you is breathing too loud.

Rats are not to blame for the Black Death! A new study suggests gerbils are the actual culprits in the “second plague pandemic.”

Feeding your baby peanut butter might prevent her from serious nut allergies in the future. Peanut butter for the win! PS. Don’t try this at home.

Cher calls out Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson for vetoing a bill that would allow for more LGBT anti-discrimination laws. Like we needed any more reasons to worship Cher.

New Mexico wants to offer license plates that have anything from aliens to horned lizards on them. Duh. Let them do it.

With the help of skilled drivers, a few dozen homosapiens on the West coast of North America transported small metal statuettes back to their lavish dwellings in elongated automobiles.

Why was Joan Rivers left out of the 'In Memorium' montage of The Oscars?

How do they pick the Oscar Winners?

11 students at Wesleyan were hospitalized after overdosing on MDMA, also known as 'Molly.'

A driver crashed into an electrical pole that knocked out the power to Tingley Coliseum right before the Monster Truck Jam. The intentional crashes of the spectacle were unaffected.

Why were these weird food patents unsuccessful?

The already questionable reputation of Downtown Albuquerque is being tarnished by late-night brawls.

Poor little spaceport.

If anyone knows what will destroy human civilization, it’s Stephen Hawking.
