"World’s Leading Scientists Nervously Stand Next To Poster-Board Displays As Nobel Committee Walks Through Gymnasium"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://www...-stand-next-to-post-1829531578
"“I stayed up all night cutting out stenciled letters, mounting my results on construction paper, and using glue stick to get these cryo-electron microscope images onto my poster board,” said molecular biologist Richard Henderson, eyeing his competitors’ various displays of wind tunnels, volcanoes, and mathematical models illustrating the exponential expansion of space following the Big Bang. “The competition’s pretty serious this year. I saw one of the other scientists dropping Mentos into a two-liter bottle of Coke, and it looked pretty cool. Meanwhile, one of my graphs describing the three-dimensional structure of biomolecules fell off my poster right as the committee was walking by. I really hope that’s not going to affect my chances of winning the Nobel Prize.” At press time, sources confirmed theoretical physicist and cosmologist Alan Guth had been disqualified after the committee concluded his parents had clearly done most of the work for him."

Police at a Florida airport removed a passenger who refused to get off a Cleveland-bound flight after she was found carrying an “emotional support squirrel.”

Passengers had already boarded Frontier Airlines Flight 1612 at Orlando International Airport on Tuesday night when they were told there was a “situation” and everyone needed to get off the plane, according to passenger Brandon Nixon.

“Everyone was a little panicked. You expect the worst when they say something like that,” the 24-year-old Ashland, Ohio resident said. “A lot of people were asking questions. People wanted to know what was going on.”

As he exited the plane, Nixon said he asked a flight attendant if she had any other information. “All she said was ‘a squirrel,’” he said.

But once they were back in the terminal, “word spread pretty quickly” about what was happening.

Frontier says the passenger had noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal with her on the flight, but she did not indicate it was a squirrel. Rodents, including squirrels, are not one of the emotional support animals allowed on Frontier flights, according to its website.

"Calm, Measured Trump Hard At Work After Freak Accident Leaves Him With Railroad Spike Lodged In Skull"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://pol...fter-freak-accident-1829686798
"“President Trump has been a model of professionalism ever since the accident—he’s attentive and inquisitive during intelligence briefings, articulate at press conferences, and his tweets have been increasingly vetted and thoroughly researched,” said White House chief of staff John Kelly, echoing the general sentiments of staffers in the West Wing, where feelings of general relief and a newfound sense of job security were observed during the two-hour morning meeting Trump convened to discuss naming Ada Limón the new U.S. poet laureate. “At first I was a bit concerned, as anyone would be when a railroad spike pierces a sitting president’s cerebral cortex and bisects his hypothalamus, but the White House physician checked him out and concluded that the benign effect on Trump’s disposition outweighs any possible long-term harm.” At press time, staffers confirmed Trump was growing morose and irritable after banging the protruding head of the spike on the doorframe of Air Force One while attempting to deplane."

Looks like until tomorrow it's 50% off for pre-orders, putting it at $249 for the paper-only version, $329 for the paper+stylus version. Seems about right for people taking a chance on the early technology.
