We all love a stiff drink, I mean really, it’s what gets us through the day sometimes. But, while you spent your weekend getting smashy, the world still happened. So, here’s what you missed:
North Korea, the favorite target of comedians everywhere, attempted to launch an “intermediate-range ballistic missile” Friday night. Now, we all know that America wouldn’t let that go unnoticed, and the Pentagon picked up the failure to launch Friday night while you were calling an UBER. In short: North Korea tried to fire Nukes, and proved that in a pissing contest, no one can beat the good ol’ USofA.
In the world of politics, Donald Trump is the thorn in the side of every mildly-respectable American citizen (read: dumbass). This weekend, he spent a few of his rallies, continuing allegations that Chillary Clinton should be in prison and that the media is rigging the election. A law firm out of D.C. responded by schooling the Twitterverse on how nearly impossible it would be to “rig” an election. The thread is 33 tweets long, and you can read it here.
3) The Cubs:
I don’t know about you, but we all know a Cubs fan who is basically losing their mind right now. People all over the US are #FlyingTheW while the corner of Clark and Addison was witnessing Miguel Montero hitting a grand-slam. Da Cubs took Game 1 of the NLCS but Kershaw got the best of them in game 2. Can they go all the way? Not if Bartman has anything to do with it …
And that’s your water cooler talk for today, keep it classy Revelers.
