This weekend, Nike set up an event where they declared three athletes would run the world’s fastest marathon.

And some of these are things you can do yourself.
Columbus, Ohio CBS station WBNS went black for six minutes as its weather staff delivered ominous news of a tornado warning in Franklin and Madison counties.

Weather, as weather is wont to do, fucked shit up earlier tonight at the Colorado Rockies’ park before the team’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The field looked completely unusable, until the grounds crew worked their magic.
