Finally, after 20 years being covered in gum, the famous Gum Wall in Seattle is getting a makeover. The decision came after they discovered erosion caused by the sugar in the gum. Or to put it in simpler terms: someone in Seattle hates fun. Which makes sense, because they live in Seattle.
See where the gum was transported to after its removal and more in this week headlines:
- This week, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his girlfriend announced that they’re expecting their first child. Doctors are anticipating this to be the largest stone anyone has ever passed.

It’s official: Chipotle and Qdoba are making people sick in certain states. Paying extra for guacamole now seems minor compared to paying extra for your hospital stay. Nothing like some E. Coli and Typhoid Fever to wash down your local, antibiotic-free, farm-raised chicken. Find out what other restaurants are effected and more in this week’s headlines:

One Northern California police department has made a serious change in the way they protect the community. With all of the heat guns have been receiving, they decided to go a different route. Ninja stars? Maybe brass-knuckles? Or how about bows and arrows?
Let’s get into this week’s headlines to see what Nor-Cal’s most wanted have to look forward to:
- This week, Oxford University conducted a study about where on the body people are most comfortable being touched. Most women answered, “Hands”, while most men said, “Dammit”.
