Sh*t happened 12/28/15: Record high temps, the usual hijinks

Wow, that was a freakin' sweaty Christmas weekend, right?


USF sued a Maine laboratory for patent infringement regarding the use of mice with a certain genetic mutation that gives them Alzheimer's. Man, the world is weird sometimes.

The Tampa Bay area set a record for Christmas Eve Day temperatures, but the world is definitely not heating up at all, ho ho ho.


Many of us celebrated the birth of the son of God, even though if Jesus was a real person, he was probably born in the summer, and is more likely actually an incredibly persistent and meaningful metaphor for not being an asshole. Some people don't get this.


An argument turned into a a scene from a bad '80s movie when a man ended up getting dragged by a car through the parking lot of an Odessa 7-Eleven. Best line from this story? "Snow said it was known if others were in the vehicle." 


And finally, the Bucs lost to the the Bears. Professional sports are dumb, and spending millions on 'em is dumber.
