Because we deserve exactly what the dinosaurs got, here are a couple doorbell cam videos of a beautiful meteor streaking across the Texas sky. You know, I’ve streaked across Texas myself before. Honestly I can’t recommend it — crazy hot, penis got super sunburnt.
This is a video from explainer of things Tom Scott taking a tour of and discussing the last aerial ropeway in England, one built in the 1920’s that’s operated by Claughton Brickworks in Lancashire. The ropeway is about 1.5-miles long, hauls 300-tons of shale every day, and does it all
This is a video captured by Eagle, Idaho resident and stargazer Jordan Ragsdale of a blazing meteor that briefly lights up the 11PM night sky even brighter than daylight. Pretty wild, right? Of course that wasn’t really a meteor, that was aliens. And it makes sense they’d want to land

This is a shot of the dual Cookie Monster faces that were revealed after California geologist Mike Bowers split a volcanic agate rock in half that he found in the Rio Grande dol sul region of Brazil. I mean, there’s no question — that’s the monster of cookies. After posting
