Weekly Weather Report

Week of Aug. 30-Sep. 5

Clouds have been rolling through the metro area all day, so there's seemingly a chance of rain this afternoon. Yesterday it was the same situation but someone decided not to follow through with the rain so we all just had to watch it pass us by. Maybe someone will follow through with the signs that they give today. Tomorrow will be about the same, so we have that to look forward to. Things are going to start to heat up on Friday with a high of 86 degrees Fahrenheit, so don't throw your summer wardrobe in the trash compacter, yet (though advised by The City Fashion Council). Next week will be sunny with mild temps, almost like autumn really exists. But of course it does. We aren't all bodies floating in goo being prodded at by reptilian aliens.

The Daily Word in Fake Guns, Poop Explosions and How to Catch a Sensitive Ghost

The Daily Word

I can die happy: here's a video of a Russian sewage truck—filled to the brim with poop—literally popping in the middle of nose-to-nose traffic.

Net neutrality apparently started in the 1920's with the Hush-A-Phone, a device that clipped over the mouthpiece of telephones and allowed the user to muffle their voice and keep their private conversations from the eavesdropping ears of their neighbors. AT&T tried to make it illegal to use third-party attachments on their phones (because monopoly) and ended up going before the FCC over the case. AT&T won, and law students still study it in reference to net neutrality.

The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia is trying to attract the ghost of former art photographer Thomas Eakins with nude models and robots. Really.

A gun manufacturer had their replica gun booth shut down at Wizard World, a comic book convention. Not because they did anything wrong, but because people don't like guns, I guess? Um. Obviously, they thought those "wrath of Thor" tweets were literal. Super powers don't kill people. Supervillains do.

Meanwhile, in Russia, they sell model assault rifles in airports. O strange new world, that has such people in it.

So, hundreds of these creepy little stitched up balls of ... something ... washed up on a beach in England. Turns out these horror-movie rejects are actually "sea potatoes," a common species of sea urchin. So far, no one is sure why such a big urchin dump even happened.

Weekly Weather Report

Week of Aug. 16-22

Today has been pretty cloudy and this evening we can expect rain and some wind up to 15 mph. Wednesday will be less cloudy but slightly cooler with a high of 89º. Thursday will be sunny and breezy. Friday will be basically the same as Thursday. Pure sunshine all weekend long with a gentle breeze. Monday looks like it will be as cloudy as today (if not more) and cooler with stronger breezes and some hateful glances from the neighbor that died four and a half years ago, Gods rest their soul. I predict next Tuesday will be rainy. Don't forget; it's a safe bet for the rest of the month that it'll rain during the nighttime, so bring an umbrella when you're escaping your gray alien-invaded home in the middle of the night. Happy monsoon season!
