Because the world is a weird place, here's some more random 'news' tidbits for you this morning.
Because as I looked further at today's "breaking news" stories I saw some things that jumped out at me. This next grouping of news "tidbits" is a smattering of different categories of news, some that made me go WTH, or just flat out shake my head.
- University of Texas at Austin has removed the on campus statue of Jefferson Davis. This comes after the confederate flag controversary of the last couple of months. Apparently the statue is going to be moved indoors to the museum on campus, officials believe this is a more "appropriate" place for the statue. So therefor they aren't really accomplishing anything, except moving it- which kind of defeats the whole purpose of taking it down as to not to offend anyone if you ask me. But what do I know?
- Miley Cyrus has been named the worst celeb role modle for children. This leads me to ask, why on earth did it ake so long? She's been messing up, and dressing scantily and borderline a little crazy for a few years now. Why is this just now becoming 'breaking news'?
- Obama has announced that he is changing the name of North America's tallest peak Mount McKinley to Denali. Why is this on the top of his to-do list. Surely there is something more important that the president could be focusing on?
- Oh in other presidential news, Obama is in Alaska and is apparently while there filming a special with Bear Gryllis. Not trying to be overly rude here, but Obama doesn't exactly strike me as a survivalist type of person.
- Hurricane Fred is forming in the Atlantic Ocean.
- September 9th 2015 , Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning monarch in Britian's history, with the record breaking reign of 63 years.
So there are a few more random news stories. Some with the bonus of my commentary. I don't know if I'll get anymore news stories up today, but I found these ones and just had to share. This is also my eighth post of the day, and it's just eleven am here in the Gulf.
