The Daily Word in Stellar Collisions, Arguing Bots and Carrie Fisher's Ashes

The Daily Word

An iceberg the size of Rhode Island is expected to break off of Antarctica within the next few months. Scientists say we can anticipate a rise in sea levels when it happens.

Astronomers are predicting that a "new" star produced by a stellar collision that happened centuries ago will be visible to the naked eye in 2022. They call it the "Boom Star."

Thousands are logging on to watch a live-streaming argument between two Google Homes bots on Twitch.

Ok. This is weird. The Chilean government released a nine-minute video that appears to show an actual UFO (or rather, a UAP--unidentified aerial phenomenon). Watch the footage for yourself. Its ... intense.

Carrie Fisher's ashes were reportedly placed in an urn shaped like a giant Prozac pill.

The Daily Word in Wildlife, Plagiarism and Rich People

The Daily Word

Whales everywhere rejoice after the US Navy finally stops using harmful underwater sonar.

Coincidence? I think not.

Be a mindful tourist, and not one of these people.

Jon Krakauer's book Into The Wild stirred a wanderlust-y side of many people, to the point where a strikingly large amount are attempting to follow the protagonist's journey to Fairbanks Bus 142 in Alaska.

Why anyone would live in New Mexico with no taste for hot chile peppers is beyond me, but in case the heat doesn't hurt so good (and simply hurts) try extinguishing the pain with milk, not water.

Moronic humans strike again.

The Daily Word in lube, aliens, and J-Law

The Daily Word

Who cares about women? People who wear pink and don’t wear bras, obviously. Cue eyeroll.

What are smart people afraid of? Not spiders.

Walmart continually makes this beautiful mistake.

Does “Pinktober” piss you off? Well, grab your stress ball because it’s gotten worse.

Yas, Jennifer Lawrence, YAS!

ALIENS!

Neon Indian’s new album is released tomorrow, but you can totes listen today if you want to (you know you do).

Sometimes we have to talk to the police when we have weed on us. This is not an ideal situation, so memorize these things so you don’t have a panic attack and get shot.

Santa Fe is hosting a chile drop for NYE?!
