Trump Says Sun Equally to Blame for Blocking Moon

Attacking the media for its “very unfair” coverage of Monday’s solar eclipse, Donald J. Trump said on Saturday that the sun was equally to blame for blocking the moon. 
“The fake news is covering the eclipse from the sun’s side instead of the moon’s side, but if you look at it from the moon’s side the sun is blocking the moon’s side,” he said. “There are so many sides you can’t count all the sides.” Additionally, Trump tore into the sun itself, calling it a “showboat” for its role in the solar eclipse. “The sun thinks the world revolves around it,” Trump said. “Sad.” Trump said the sun was a “big problem” that his predecessor, Barack Obama, did nothing to solve, but that that situation was about to change. “It will be handled—we handle everything,” Trump said, adding that a preĆ«mptive military strike on the sun was “very much on the table.”

Snorting Copper


A Banksy painting that appeared on a public toilet block in east London, only to disappear after it was vandalised, spray-jetted by the local council and then painted over, has been rediscovered over a decade later.
 Known as the Snorting Copper and considered an exemplary image by the elusive graffiti artist, it shows a uniformed policeman on his hands and knees snorting a line of cocaine.
 Although the painting has been valued for insurance purposes at £1.25m, Jonathan Ellis and David Kyte, who uncovered the painting after they bought the disused site, say they have no intention of selling it. Instead, they are restoring it and will return it to its original site in Shoreditch, Hackney, so that the general public can see it.

This bubble eye goldfish may or may not be drunk.


Animals produce plenty of weird compounds. Take, for example, squid ink, skunk spray or even hagfish slime. But one of the strangest animal-produced byproducts is goldfish alcohol. When our finned friends are in low oxygen environments, like at the bottom of a frozen pond, goldfish and related carp species produce alcohol from their gills. Now, as Ryan F. Mandelbaum at Gizmodo reports, researchers have finally figured out how and why the critters produce this fishy moonshine. Read more
