Yesterday was fun, right? The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the FBI admitted that the president of the United States was under investigation for colluding with a foreign power. Spring has sprung.

Now, this is a complex issue, and who knows what will come of it. After all, it's not ever day that a White House official admits that they've been secretly meeting with Russian ambassadors and lying about it. Well, unless it's this White House. Thankfully, Seth Meyers has been doing a great job of unpacking this whole mess and does it with jokes. 

Laughter, it's all we have left.

The federal budget, as many will tell you, is mostly political theater. Budgets, in their entirety, never actually pass, but they are an exact document of what the president wants. It's a window into what the government would look like if the president didn't have to deal with any check and balances.

What would America look like if Trump had that? Well, as John Oliver explains, it would be mostly be about defending a worthless pile of rubble. Check it out.

A lot of people don't know this, but iPhone batteries can kind of explode. You know who didn't know this, this dude who was working at one of those We Can Fix Your iPhone stores. He was playing around with a dinged up phone, and POOF, black smoke everywhere. 

In the description for the video, the guy breaks down what happened:

"A customer came into the store with screen damaged iPhone 6+ for repair. The customer wanted repair of broken screen and complained of Apple genuine battery not holding charge. We removed the customer's Otterbox and prepared to book the phone in. Then, the customer picked up phone and applied a regular amount of pressure to the screen, the same as any normal person would do everyday during regular use. The battery failed and exploded. Initial force of the explosion caused the screen to come off the phone. Our staff extinguished the phone with a fire extinguisher. We had to evacuate the store due to fumes and could not open for the rest of the day. Draw your own conclusions, but imagine if this happened five minutes earlier when the guy was driving to the shop and not in the shop."

Yeah, imagine if that guy had taken it out of the case and poked around the battery while driving. Let this be a lesson, just bring it to Genius Bar or don't drop your phone.
