What else is happening this week?
🚗Things are getting a little more boring
The Boring Company is set to unveil its first tunnel concept under the streets of Hawthorne, California. The unveiling will include a demonstration of a modded autonomous car transport as well as a ground to tunnel car elevator. We'll be watching Elon's Twitter feed closely on Tuesday.
🍩Exxxxcellent (Mr. Burns voice)
This week FOX and FXX are celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Simpsons which premiered 29 years ago (... close enough). In case you missed the FXX Simpsons Marathon yesterday, next Sunday FXX will be re-airing the first-ever Simpson episode, “Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire”.
🎄'Twas the week before Christmas
Some of this week’s fun holidays include Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, Festivus, and our Canadian staff's favorite, Maple Syrup Day. If you prefer a holiday drink other than Egg Nog, you can always celebrate Sangria Day this Thursday.
🚀Houston, we have an anniversary to celebrate
This Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 8 which was the first Apollo mission to orbit the moon. The three-astronaut crew of Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders accomplished many human firsts on their 6 day, 3 hour, and 42-second mission. NASA put together a terrific video documenting the historic mission for your viewing pleasure.
☮International Migrants Day
This UN International Day highlights the importance of the protection of refugees and migrants and the commitment for safe, orderly and regular migration. Another UN day taking place this week is International Human Solidarity Day.
🕷Marvel's Spider-Man: Silver Lining DLC (PS4)
The final chapter of ‘The City That Never Sleeps’ 3-part DLC expansion pack is released this week. It revolves around Silver Sable and Hammerhead as they storm the city to recover their stolen tech.
