And the award for most insane train accident of the day goes to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, where a Blue Line train skittered off the tracks and went halfway up the escalator before coming to a stop. The accident, which took place around 3 a.m. this morning, injured 32, but if it happened at another time of the day, it could have been far worse. Holy crap.

BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines text message to families: ‘We have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board have survived.’

Via text message? Really?

A long, strange tale ends in tragedy. And apparently, via text. Quite sad.

The U.S. doesn’t like hummus as much as everyone else. Why is that?

  • 26% the percentage of Americans that regularly buy hummus. Another 80 million americans don’t even know what the hell hummus is. Hummus, one of the world’s most popular foods, has failed to successfully crack the American market the way that, say, Ranch dressing has, but that’s not for lack of trying. The hummus-producing giant Sabra, owned by Pepsico, is going out of its way to sell Middle America on the idea that ground chickpeas are awesome. source
