Greetings Webtaculators! I promise I’m not trying to make this a late Monday / early Tuesday thing, it’s just how things are going. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: It’s Like RAAAAAAIIIN, On A Rainy Day

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: One TRILLION Dollars
Why: Because that’s how much Tesla is worth now after a hundred thousand vehicle order from somehow un-bankrupt Hertz.

Why: Because the Supreme Court continues to do its job poorly.
SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (1.5 hour watch)
What: The King Of North Sudan
