Trump Awards Elvis Presley US Presidential Medal of Freedom: President Trump has awarded Elvis Presley the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom in a White House ceremony. Now, at first I thought, what’s the point, he’s been dead for over 40 years - but then it occurred to me that his closest advisors like Alex Jones have probably totally convinced him that Elvis is actually still alive. Anyway, not to diminish the award, I’m sure any award from coming the likes of Donald Trump will mean an awful lot to Elvis - especially at this stage of his career.
North Carolina Man’s Runny Nose Was Actually Leaking Brain Fluid: Some doctors told a North Carolina man his runny nose was due to allergies, while others doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and bronchitis, but it wasn't until he saw a doctor at Mount Sinai Hospital that he learned it was a cerebrospinal fluid leak (leaking brain fluid).

Definition of How a Kilogram is Measured Has Just Changed: For the past 130 years, the kilogram, which is the basic unit of mass - has been defined as the exact weight of a cylinder of platinum-iridium held in a triple-locked vault in Paris, but that all changed by a vote of scientists from 60 countries at the General Conference on Weights and Measures in Paris - and now a kilogram will be defined in terms of fundamental constants that describe the natural world. Wait a minute, I’d like to weigh in on that! Personally, I think a kilogram should be defined by how much weight I would gain if I downed about a half a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts with my cafe latte in the morning.
