The Daily Word in Pink Snow, Balls of Light and the End of All Art

By Joshua Lee [ Sun Jun 26 2016 9:45 AM ]
The Daily Word

So, some of the Arctic snow has turned pink. Scientists lay the blame on an algae that turns red when hit by sunlight. It looks cool, but unfortunately it lowers the albedo number (which indicates how much light is reflected by a surface, dependent on hue), meaning the snow melts faster and the current climate model needs some tweaking.

Those good ol' Isotopes are at it again. Nine straight losses!

In 1951 a Denver waitress decided, after one too many beers, that she would like to see what happened when she jumped out the window of her fifth-story hotel room. This newspaper clipping says the jump (which she miraculously survived) taught her a "lesson." See? LSD isn't the only one.

So here's a reason not to go to LA anytime soon: The Skyslide, a glass chute that sits 1,000 feet above the ground, attached to the side of California's tallest building. Crazy people can enjoy the experience of "sliding off the side of a skyscraper." Alright.

Something that made my neighbor proclaim the "End of All Art" was near: New-Mexican film-maker Hannah Macpherson has created the first full-length Snapchat movie, Sickhouse. Darryl can be so fucking melodramatic sometimes.

H. C. Wu, a Chinese researcher, believes he's figured out the secrets of ball lightning, a phenomenon that has mystified scientists and pissed of UFOlogists since time immemorial.

The Daily Word in Mindful Cops, Time Space Distortions and Inky's Escape

By Joshua Lee [ Sun Apr 17 2016 8:35 AM ]
The Daily Word

Inky the octopus managed to pull off a daring escape from a New Zealand aquarium by squeezing through a gap at the top of his tank and slithering eight feet across the floor to a drain pipe that led to the ocean. Gangsta!

New Mexican's Steve Terrell tells us how the state's Republicans are embracing the idea of legal pot. I have to go knock wood real quick and throw a salt shaker over my shoulder with my fingers and toes crossed. Excuse me.

NASA has publicly stated that so-called “Planet 9” is not affecting the orbit of the Cassini space probe. Nevertheless, everyone in the tin-foil hat community already knows it's the long-awaited return of Niburu, the rogue planet. And aliens.


Holly Holm threw out the first pitch at yesterday's Isotopes game as part of a fund-raising event for the Boys and Girls club. No one is blaming the loss of the team's winning streak on her outside pitch. No one.

Check out these Canadian cops meditating. That's right. Peel Regional Police are trying out some new training methods. Somebody needs to pass this on to APD.

A dark matter dwarf galaxy was discovered hiding inside a space time distortion. If you understood that sentence, you might be a character from a bad sci-fi novel.

Still reeling from two violent earthquakes, some Japanese residents were surprised to find their streets filling up with a mysterious foam.

Check out these two assholes claiming to be APD and kicking in a person's door before robbing them. Both men were armed and brazen as hell. There's some pretty good shots of the creeps, so take a look and see if you know them.

Making claim to a foul ball is seldom easy

By Toby Smith
Many of the signatures on Art Duran’s memento belong to players lost to time: Ray Katt and Al Aber, for instance. Four scribbles, however, were done by Baseball Hall of Famers: Leo Durocher, Bob Lemon, Al Lopez and Monte Irvin. What is most important to Duran, 77, is that he gained this souvenir during a game, not at some memorabilia show or off eBay.
