A Florida craft beer company called Saltwater Brewery teamed up with engineers and scientists to create an alternative for plastic to hold their beer cans together. It works just like those plastic rings that hold a six pack together but it's made from the by products of beer making.

The observation deck in the Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire has gotten very windy. The video description explains that a few of the Weather Observers that work there went outside to check it out:

Weather Observers Mike Dorfman and Tom Padham took a brief break this morning to enjoy the windy and wintry conditions on the observation deck. Winds so far have topped out at 109 mph, with gusts near the century mark expected through this afternoon.

This is the video for an IndieGoGo campaign called September 11th Redux with a goal of $1.5 million. The key quote from the information section of the fundraising campaign is this: "We are like a Mythbusters for September 11th." That pretty much says it all. These people want a lot of money to recreate 9-11 in whatever country they think will actually let them do this. 

Who knows if they will reach their goal/be allowed to drive an extremely large aircraft on autopilot into a building. But hey, if you donate $125 you'll get a T-Shirt that says "9-11: THE REDUX" which will be awesome for those of you who love explaining your clothing to the TSA and Federal officers.

LA Meteorologist, Liberte Chan, was wearing a sparkly cocktail dress for the morning weather report. Maybe it wasn't the most appropriate attire for the occasion but apparently it was a just a backup because the outfit she had planned didn't work with the green screen.  As a follow up to the incident, she and her other co-anchors read some of the emails she received. She and her other coworkers maintain that the sweater incident was just a joke in light of all the emails but other people weren't so sure. There was a lot of outrage on Twitter, in additon to some people supporting Chan and her fancy outfit.

George Zimmerman claimed self-defense when he shot and killed a young, unarmed man named Trayvon Martin in 2012. He was acquitted of all charges and now he's selling the gun as "a piece of American history".  

Maybe his confederate flag business isn't doing so well? 

Bidding starts at $5,000 and he is literally planning to use some of the proceeds to fight Black Lives Matter activists, or as he put it according to the video "fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against law enforcement officers".

Why? We don't know. The makers of 'Chambong' say that it's awesome but it doesn't seem like they've done any studies that substantiate that claim. If you're wondering how it even came about, we do have the answer to that one according to their website:

The origins of the first Chambong came about in early 2014, during a moment preempting the Super Bowl. We had an epiphany the week prior of the big event to create a “Super…Bowl.” The resulting device of our imagination harnessed an ability to hold an extraordinary amount of cannabis, however was sadly non-functional as a smoking apparatus. Fortune would prevail several evening later, while onlookers examining the piece remarked at how it looked like a fantastic wine “shooter”.  They promptly filled it with Champagne and experienced the resulting magic…And thus was born the glory that is — The Chambong.


And their reviews are pretty good/weird.
