    Budweiser looks to become the state beer...of a state that doesn't really like beer:
    Budweiser launched a new campaign Monday seeking to become Utah’s first official state beer and promised to release a customized can if its plan goes through.

    In a video ad posted on YouTube, the self-proclaimed “King of Beers” argued that Utah has “a lot of official state things,” including cherries as the state’s official fruit, coal as its official rock and sego lily as the state flower.

    Utah has coal as its official state.rock?

    Is Utah known for coal mining or is this just a conservative thing?

    Utah is currently the 12th top coal producing state, but used to rank higher.

    You know about the explosion at Beirut. Three thousand tons of ammonium nitrate went up, and hundreds died, thousands were injured, hundreds of thousands were made homeless, and that just set off conditions for an explosion of new COVID-19 cases and could be leading to a famine.

    If there's any silver lining, it's that a whole buncha other countries suddenly realized that they too have thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate just sitting around their ports and they oughta do something about that, like, right now. Eight hundred tons in Chennai. Three thousand tons in Dakar, Senegal. Romania just confiscated almost 9000 tons that had been illegally stored. The ports of the world were just dotted with bombs waiting to go off. At least the disaster made some places take it seriously.

    London Bridge isn't going down, my fair lady:
    Tower Bridge, one of London's most famous landmarks, was stuck open Saturday afternoon due to "mechanical failure," causing traffic chaos in the city.
    The 240 meter-long bridge, a staple of London's skyline and a popular tourist attraction, features a drawbridge type movable bridge, which lifts around 800 times a year to allow vessels to pass in the river below.
    But the landmark, which is near the Tower of London and spans the River Thames, remained "locked in a raised position for a period of time" on Saturday before later reopening to pedestrians, the bridge said in a statement.

    If your bridge is in a raised and locked position for over 4 hours, call your doctor.

    Bad news: a religious revival decides that the middle of a pandemic is the perfect time to have a tent revival of hundreds of people without masks.

    Gone right: God sends them a sign to knock that crap off. A giant wind blows down the tent and sends everything flying. Lightning even strikes by a truck. It's bad enough that bikers are riding around New Hampshire without religious nuts adding to the enplaguening.

    Of course, I doubt a single person who was there will accept this chastisement.

    Pretty much - anyone who is going to ascribe divine intervention in events would see a storm blowing their tent down as Satan trying to stop them and now their faith is stronger than ever. But if that other guy's tent blows down, it is totally God's will.

    Sometimes, you just want to get really clean:
    A naked man has decided a Sunshine Coast car and dog wash would be the perfect place for a late-night shower.
    In video recorded on August 16, the man is seen receiving a high-pressure hose down from a mate in one of the washing bays.
    The owner of the car wash shared the footage on their Facebook page and wished the man a "speedy recovery".

    I doubt it caused traffic chaos. It's London, the traffic would have already been chaos.

    You can easily add 'causes traffic chaos' to any story happening in London, and no-one will notice the addition.
    'Daniel Craig attends new movie premiere, causes traffic chaos'
    See?

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    Why does he need a speedy recovery? If it's dog safe, wouldn't it be pretty man safe, too? Who goes out to power wash their dog?

    There's a place like this here - the car and dog baths are very separate from one another.

    I'm guessing less from the power wash and more from whatever their guess was that he got on himself to warrant a power washing

    From the twitter thread, the mystery fifth book is, "Exodus by Julie Bertagna: set in a dystopian future in which global warming has caused the oceans to rise and the heroes are dispossessed migrants desperately seeking refuge by boat."

    Trying to figure out how The Subtle Knife fits the overall theme, the rest are pretty obvious either from content or title.

    Or since it is the first book, it expresses the intent of the other books: A subtle knife with which poke at the PM.

    Before following any advice, opinions, or thoughts I may have expressed in the above post, be warned: I found Keven Costners "Waterworld" to be a very entertaining film.
