Scientists in the UK asked the public to vote on a name for their $290 million polar research ship. Because people are awful (or awesome, depending on your point of view) the name at the top of the list is none other than "RRS Boaty McBoatface".

Ah, such a fitting name for such a grand ship. You can watch this video for details on the construction and groundbreaking advancements of the soon to be RRS Boaty McBoatface:



Honestly, they'll probably pick one of the more serious suggestions as this naming poll is in no way binding.  However, at this point they'll probably be facing some backlash if they don't.

Snowstorms in China have delayed thousands of travelers nearing the Chinese New Year. This woman thought her flight was cancelled. All the other passengers were rerouted and caught different flights but ten hours later, the plane still took off with its single passenger. 



Hopefully with such an empty cabin they upgraded her to first class.
