It's a bad day to be in the KKK.

You can view the full list here.

Anonymous said in a press release that about 1,000 more KKK members' information would be released in the coming days.

"We will release, to the global public, the identities of up to 1000 klan members, Ghoul Squad affiliates and other close associates of various factions of the Ku Klux Klan across the Unites States."

Whoops of The Day: A Giant Blimp is on The Loose Somewhere Over Pennsylvania

Someone has got some explaining to do.

A giant U.S. surveillance blimp came untethered today around noon and is now floating 16,000 feet over Pennsylvania. Oh, and two F-16s have been deployed to monitor the situation.

The blimp is part of the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Netted Sensor System (JLENS), a radar system used to pick up aerial threats.

But now it has become a threat itself to the good people of Pennsylvania, who are being advised to call 911 if they spot the monstrosity.

And because people on the Internet are horrible, they made some dumb jokes about the blimp.

Blimp 2K15, where are you?

Joy Milne is a real life superhero.

Les, her husband, died from Parkinson's at the age of 65. It was about 20 years after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but Joy had noticed a change in his smell about six years before his diagnosis.

That's right—Joy could smell his disease.

"His smell changed and it seemed difficult to describe. It wasn't all of a sudden. It was very subtle - a musky smell," she told BBC.

After meeting other's with the disease and noticing the same smell, Joy reached out to researchers at Edinburgh University to test her ability.

She correctly identified 12 out of 12 shirts worn by Parkinson's patients when tested.

Joy's nose-y discovery may help detect Parkinson's earlier and improve the lives of those diagnosed.

Don't Do That of The Day: The Weeknd Says Taylor Swift Couldn't Stop Stroking His Hair

Taylor Swift just can't keep her hands to herself.

Singer Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, says that when he first met Swift she kept "petting" his hair.

He described the bizarre encounter with Taylor Swift in Rolling Stone:

"But the whole time she was talking," he says, "she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I'm not going to be like, 'Hey, can you stop?' I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that's when I was like, 'I definitely need a drink.'"

For those clueless individuals out there, touching a black person's hair is normally a cultural no-no. And it really doesn't help Swift's image when she also makes music videos like this.

Word of advice, Taylor. Next time—just don't.
