If there`s one thing to be said for this garbage year, it`s that at least it gave us Gritty.

Terrifying yet endearing, with wild eyes and a wide fixed grin, the orange mascot may have begun life as a Philadelphia Flyers mascot, but he`s since grown into so much more. He`s a meme, a Halloween costume, an antifa icon—to put it simply, Gritty is the gift that keeps on giving.

And there`s certainly no reason for that to stop now that we`re in the season of giving. Gritty was made for Christmas! Christmas was made for Gritty! So without further ado, we present to you the 12 days of Gritty. Read more...

A text which brought together two strangers in a really lovely way is probably the closest thing we have to a modern fairy tale in the smart phone-age. 

Quick recap: in 2016, Jamal Hinton from Phoenix, Arizona (who was 17-years-old at the time) was accidentally added to a group chat Thanksgiving invite sent out by Wanda Dench. 

She was trying to invite her grandchildren for dinner. After establishing that he had in fact been invited by mistake, (they`d exchanged selfies as photographic proof that they weren`t in fact related) Hinton asked if he could come anyway.  Read more...

In the early hours of December 16, 2017, hot embers began raining down on the Southern California town of Montecito. 

Ominous, orange flames soon appeared on hills above the wooded community as the infamous Thomas Fire, burning for nearly two weeks at that point, lunged over the ridge and pushed into the enclave below. 

The odds weighed in the fire`s favor: The winds picked up overnight, blowing 65 mph gusts in the direction of hundreds and hundreds of homes. 

But when the smoke and ash finally settled, the fire had lost — for the most part, anyhow.

"They thought for sure that they were going to lose 400 or 500 homes — instead they only lost seven,"  Crystal Kolden, a fire scientist at the University of Idaho and former wildland firefighter, said in an interview.  Read more...

Invite anyone from the Irwin family over, and you just know you`re going to get some animal action. 

Jimmy Fallon had Animal Planet host Robert Irwin, son of late Steve Irwin, on The Tonight Show, and he brought a lot of furry cuteness on set with him.

Fallon didn`t seem that into the cute baby animals, though. Even the cutest baby otter you`ve ever seen had Fallon visibly uncomfortable.

It`s pretty terrifying to realise that we are "the first generation that knows we are destroying the world, and could be the last that can do anything about it," as the WWF puts it

However daunting it is, when it comes to thinking about climate change as a whole, being overwhelmed and shutting down makes zero sense, because individual acts can make a huge difference. 

As I once heard – and have never really been able to slip into conversation – one bee is an annoyance, but a swarm is a game changer. Small acts in big amounts are a force to be reckoned with. Read more...

Being Scandinavian has become a rather weird experience. In the span of just a couple of years, we’ve gone from being a relatively unknown group of shy people from a tiny, cold, dark corner of the world to being hyper-visible and feeling like our culture is being fetishised.

I`m Danish, born and bread, but am now living in London, where I`ve witnessed this curiosity firsthand. 

Over here, we Scandis are the object of much envy. But not for the obvious reasons — like our high quality of life, our equality or even the fact that we’ve supplied like a third of the cast of Game of Thrones at this point. No, it’s for small aspects of our culture that a group of advertising executives somewhere saw fit to export and aggressively market as something that`s frankly not really true to who we are.  Read more...

But that`s OK, because his replacement for The Tonight Show`s opening monologue just so happened to be Jerry Seinfeld, who stepped in at the last minute for a *totally* unplanned set.

China hasn`t been shy about using facial recognition tech to catch jaywalkers, and publicly shame them.

The technology aims to dissuade bad behaviour by recognising the offender`s face, checking it with a database, then posting their information on public screens, such as their ID number and name.

It`s technology that can definitely go wrong, as witnessed recently in the city of Ningbo. 

As reported by Abacus, one camera caught a jaywalker at an intersection in Jiangxia Bridge East, but it turned out to be merely the face of a famous businesswoman, Dong Mingzhu. Read more...

Ancient Egyptian preparing food.

The ancient Egyptians enjoyed a variety of foods, not unlike what we enjoy today. Nevertheless, compared to many other ancient civilizations, the ancient Egyptians had access to better foods. The Nile River provided irrigation for crops and water for livestock. Generally speaking, bread and beer were the staples of ancient Egyptian cuisine.

Another year, another Thanksgiving song from The National, in their annual collaborative tradition with beloved animated series Bob`s Burgers. But this one`s a real tear-jerker.

Apple is restarting production of the iPhone X due to weak sales of the iPhone XS and XS Max, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max debuted in September to much ballyhoo, and both phones have received favorable reviews; however, it seems that now the newest iPhones are not selling quite as fast as Apple originally projected.

This surprising development comes just days after Apple reportedly cut production orders for all three 2018 iPhone models (i.e. the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR).  Read more...

Dragon Ball fans, rejoice!

The main hero of the Dragon Ball series, Goku, made his premier (in balloon form) at the 92nd Macy`s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Fans of the animated series will notice that the balloon depicts Goku in Super Saiyan Blue to promote the release of the 20th animated film in the series` history, Dragon Ball Super: Broly

The new series is set to debut on Jan. 16, 2019 and promises to give fans an in-depth look at the background and history of Saiyans (a race of extraterrestrials in the anime series) and how the main villain, Frieza, enters the cartoon`s universe.

According to Macy`s official parade lineup, the Goku balloon stands at 56-feet tall, 36-feet wide, 70-feet long, and requires a total of 90 handlers to maneuver it through two-and-a-half miles of New York City streets during the parade. Read more...

We`ve heard all the fuss about Cursed Child, but before the Tony Award-winning play even built an audience, Puffs was growing a loyal following with the sweet story of Harry Potter`s years at Hogwarts, all told from the perspective of oft-forgotten Hufflepuff students.

After making it to Broadway and running successfully for more than two years, Puffs is now available for digital purchase so you can experience those eventful years for yourself.

Written by Matt Cox and directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker, Puffs is less Cursed Child and more A Very Potter Musical, as far as the Potter theater genre is concerned. It`s a tight one hour 45 minutes (no songs) packed with jokes that poke fun at Potter canon while appreciating the effect of Harry`s adventures on his fellow students — and it gives the Hufflepuff house the credit they always deserve, but rarely get.
