It might not feel like winter yet where you live, but in Montreal, Canada it's a different story. Snowy conditions on a road there led to a traffic pile-up involving several cars, two buses,a pickup truck, a police car and a snowplow Monday (December 5th) morning. Willem Shepherd filmed the scene from his office window at the Aimia building and posted it on YouTube with the caption, "Crazy morning outside the office." There were no serious injuries reported.

I think we just found the worst Christmas gift of the year. Nordstrom just came out with a product called the "Medium Leather Wrapped Stone." What's that? It's a small stone in a leather pouch. Yes, just a three-inch rock in a sleeve. And it costs $85.


They describe it as, quote, "A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It's up to you . . . [but] it's sure to draw attention wherever it rests."


There's no word on how it's selling, but I sure hope the answer is "poorly."

Yup...someone did the math, using this formula:

25,000 bulbs * 0.08 watts/bulb = 2,000 watts.
2,000 watts * (1 kilowatt / 1,000 watt) = 2 kilowatts
2 kilowatts * 5 hours per day = 10 kwh per day
10kwh * 31 days = 310 kwh
310kwh * each state's average price per kwh

Your grandchildren may live in a world where there are no lines at the grocery store. And no, it's not because all those terrible self-checkout machines are somehow going to get miraculously better.


Amazon just created a convenience store that works differently than any other store EVER. When you walk in, you scan your phone. Then, when you pick up items off the shelves, they're automatically added to your bill, which you can check on an app.


When you're done shopping, you just leave, and you're automatically charged for everything you bought. There's no checking out . . . you just walk out.


So how do they know what you're taking off the shelves and putting in your bag? Amazon says it's a combination of, quote, "computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning."


And yes, our Amazon computer overlords can also detect when you put something BACK on the shelf and decide not to buy it after all, so you won't get charged.


They're testing their first store right now with their employees, and they're going to open the first one for the public in Seattle sometime early next year.

You know who's bad at driving? Everyone except you.


But you know who's REALLY bad at driving? People in Utah, apparently.


A new study ranked all 50 states from the best drivers to the worst. It's based on things like total accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, citations, and deaths.


And the 10 states with the worst drivers are: Utah . . . California . . . Virginia . . . Maine . . . Nebraska . . . South Carolina . . . North Dakota . . . Colorado . . . Washington . . . and Arizona.


And the 10 states with the best drivers are: Rhode Island . . . Florida . . . Mississippi . . . Michigan . . . Nevada . . . Arkansas . . . South Dakota . . . Illinois . . . West Virginia . . . and Oklahoma.

What would a Donald Trump candle smell like? The Etsy shop JDandKateIndustries thinks it knows, selling a candle that's advertised as smelling like the president-elect, as well as ones that supposedly smell like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Trump candle comes packaged with a top that looks like his famous hairstyle, and is described in a way meant to sound like his speech: "We've made a great, great candle. It combines all of the classiest smells (suntan lotion and steak) to produce an aroma that is tremendous." The description for Putin's candle says it "combines notes of pine, earth and smoke billowing from the cities of your enemies. It is a manly fragrance, designed to evoke the essence of Vladimir Putin and eliminate the smell of political dissidents from your home." And the one for Trudeau says that it "blends the rich scent of chai tea (because he drinks tea) with maple (because Canada)." (CNet)

Police say that a 28-year-old North Carolina man went to a pizzeria in Washington, D.C., yesterday (December 4th) because of a fake news story about Hillary Clinton, and fired an assault rifle when he got there. No one was hurt. Edgar Maddison Welch reportedly walked into the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in a wealthy area of D.C. and pointed his weapon in the direction of an employee, who was able to run away and contact police. At least one shot from the rifle was fired into the floor. According to police, Welch was investigating a fake conspiracy theory that circulated online ahead of last month's election that Clinton was running a child sex ring out of the pizzeria.

MARK WAHLBERG is one of those rare celebrities who won't talk politics. And he doesn't think the rest of them should either . . . because it doesn't do any good. It certainly didn't this year.


He said, quote, "You know, it just goes to show you that people aren't listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don't put food on their table. You don't pay their bills.


"A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They're pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family."
