Daily chart: Everything you need to know about UFOs
On July 2nd avid watchers of the skies celebrate World UFO day.The National UFO Reporting Centre, a non-profit, has catalogued almost 90,000 reported sightings of UFOs, mostly in America, since 1974. It turns out that aliens are considerate: they seldom disturb earthlings during working or sleeping hours. Rather, they tend to arrive in the evening, especially on Fridays, when folks are sitting on the front porch nursing their fourth beer.

Aliens seem to be very interested in Washington State. And now I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t seen a UFO myself.

"According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), May 2014 was the 351st consecutive month where the planet was warmer than the 20th century average temperature. If you have trouble putting that into perspective, think of it like this: if you’re 29 years old or younger, you have never experienced a colder-than-average month — ever."

Those under 29 don’t know a life without climate change (via micdotcom)

I guess I had five years in a normal climate world but I really don’t remember them all that well.
