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.

“Honey, where’d you put my revolver?” “I didn’t touch it; you probably left in your drawer.” “I’m looking in my drawer right now and I don’t see it.” We’ve all been there, right?

Al Jazeera America is closing?!

Well, break my heart into a million pieces and then repair it with a snap of your fingers (kinda).

So if you don’t have cable or internet at home, like me, here’s a list of the things you missed at the Democratic Debate last night.

Who could have guessed that women would try to continue to have abortions despite more preventive laws?

There was a Furry convention at a hotel where Syrian refugees are staying in Vancouver and it’s actually really cute what happened.
