Wisconsin started an initiative to dump cheese brine (a waste product of the state's best known commodity) all over the frozen roads in the hopes that it would be effective in thawing the ice.

According to our friends at Circa, nearly 30% of the conventionally used dry salt is reportedly knocked off the roads by cars or simply bounces off when it's first dropped. The cheese brine helps the salt remain on the roads when applied. "You want to use provolone or mozzarella. Those have the best salt content. You have to do practically nothing to it," says Jeffrey Tews of the Milwaukee Public Works Department.

Wisconsin has always been known for its tasty dairy products, but now it can brag that even its streets are practically paved with cheese!

At least four seven people are dead, including the alleged gunman, in a shooting at a Sikh temple in a Milwaukee suburb. The shooting is being treated as a "domestic terrorist-type incident," according to Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards.

Early reports estimated as many as four gunmen, but as police cleared the scene, it became evident there was only one. The first officer on the scene engaged the gunman and was hit several times. He was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive.

The Oak Creek congregation is comprised of as many as 400 Sikh Indians, and has been a part of the community for many years, with no prior incidents. One member went on record to sum up the feelings of many in the congregation:

Nobody's angry here. We're just confused. Was this a random act? Was this directed at us because of the way we look?

Police have released little information regarding victims or the number of shooters, but scanner reports indicate at least 20 people are wounded while one of the suspects was "put down." Witnesses inside described as many as four gunmen, one of them being a white male with a heavy build and wearing a sleeveless t-shirt.

The first officer on the scene was shot multiple times, and was transported to a nearby hospital. He is expected to survive.

The Interpipes Are Leaking of the Day: So, as you may or may not know, there's a bit of an uproar in Wisconsin over a bill introduced by Governor Scott Walker which strips public workers of their collective bargaining rights.

Naturally, the Internet stopped by to lend a hand.
