Science Nerd Schools Tumblr User on Plague and Veganism

This thread was in response to this news of a couple in Mongolia who ate raw Marmot organs and subsequently died of Plague. The story itself is pretty tragic, but where i gets interesting is this tumblr user shooting down everyone's knee-jerk reactions to the headline without actually reading the thing. In very tumblr fashion, the thread turned into a conversation about the realities of veganism, sort of like this tumblr post that called out vegans for not eating honey.

If not for the "news" they would've never known they had broken up. The real-world That 70's Show couple (among other things) were intrigued to find a stupid tabloid saying that they'd split up, so they responded on Instagram. Celebrity gossip is stupid, but it's kinda funny to see someone actually responding to the news a tabloid made up about them.

This excited reporter made a fatal error while doing a high school spirit report live on air. Sure he's got spirit, but when he gets a little too up close and personal with the tuba and has to deal with the consequences in real time. Goddammit tubas are hilarious. Honestly, this news tuba fail might be art.

Astronomers Discover Something Buried Under The Moon, "Destiny" Fans Got Jokes

A recent study published online revealed that something is chilling about 186 miles beneath the surface of the Moon. The Twitter account for the "Destiny" video game had a point to make when CNN tweeted about it, and the thread that ensued was full of gems. 

Do we think this could be the start of something far more extraterrestrial than we ever thought possible? We should just leave that shit on the moon buried and alone.

This reporter clearly had a very long day. To make matters worse for her, a drunk 49ers fan showed up to try and get some airtime. This reporter wasn't having any of it, and upped the stakes in a hilariously awkward way.

In the middle of the press conference for "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood", Quentin Tarantino was asked about Margot Robbie's "lack of lines" in the movie. Let's just say Tarantino was more than ready to reject that "hypothesis", and then we can watch Margot Robbie field the question with impressive composure and grace. The hype for this movie is through the roof, and we can't wait for it to come out this summer! Check the latest trailer for "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" over here.
