When you're buying a bottle of wine for a friend's party, you don't want to embarrass yourself by going too cheap. But you also don't want to spend more than you need to. So how do you figure out what to buy?
Well, someone came up with a simple way to calculate how much you should spend: Just estimate the household income of the people throwing the party, and then divide it by 10,000.
So if your friend makes $50,000 a year, a $5 bottle is probably fine . . . if they make $80,000, look for an $8 bottle . . . or if it's a couple who make a combined $120,000 a year, it should be more like $12.
That way, the wine you buy should be right around the same price as the wine THEY bought for the party.
Obviously it means you have to speculate on how much money your friends make. But if we're being honest, you probably do that anyway.
Someone in Tucson, Arizona got pretty cool footage of a thunderstorm recently that featured something called a "wet microburst." Basically, it's when there's a huge downdraft during a rainstorm, and it dumps a ton of water all at once.
It's a timelapse video that's sped up, so you basically see a huge ball of rain fall out of a cloud, and then it happens again right after that.
Footage of a woman destroying the inside of a hair salon with a SLEDGEHAMMER is going viral. Apparently it happened somewhere in Asia, and it's not clear why she did it. But everyone seems to think it was over a bad haircut.
The video's pretty blurry though, so you can't tell if her hair is jacked up or not.
