As I write this, I
realise that most of you are probably staying at home, like me. First of all,
hang in here. This is a long and difficult fight, but I have no doubt we will
get through it. Today I must confess that I had lots of help
from a bag of little chocolate bars, along with the kind online company of my
colleagues. Yes, there is still chocolate left in the bag.
There were lots of
interesting stories on Gizmodo this week! Some might even make you laugh and
momentarily forget about the thing that starts with a “c” and ends with “irus.”
And hey, although I like to be informed and am consuming tons of news lately, I
also like to laugh and disconnect.
That’s exactly what our
story about New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s nipples will help you do. Yes, we
wrote a story about Andrew Cuomo’s nipples, a mystery that has fascinated the
Internet and Gizmodo staffers alike. We’re happy (I think?) to inform you all
that we solved the case.
Another really great
story to transport you out of your home focuses on “one
of the toughest jobs on Earth,” or studying melting ice at extremely high
altitudes. Although many people might say that it’s a “beautiful job” when
looking at pictures, those who do this work say that it requires a lot of
training. For instance, high elevation sickness is deadly, which means that
people must take precautions.
And finally, those of
you who may be looking for something to do at home might consider thinking
origin story. It is much more complicated than we thought.
You can find all of
these stories and more below! Please take care of yourselves, and be safe. We’re
going to get through this.
