Ten Facts for the Official Start of Summer

 

The official start of summer is this Sunday.  If that's not specific enough, the EXACT moment summer starts is 11:32 p.m. Eastern, 8:32 p.m. Pacific. 

 

That's when the North Pole is at its maximum tilt toward the sun, making it the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

 

Here are ten more facts for the start of summer...

 

1.  The term "dog days of summer" comes from astronomy.  Sirius is called the "Dog Star" and rises in late July.  In ancient Greece, the "dog days" meant the hottest part of the year.

 

2.  The world's largest scoop of ice cream weighed 3,010 pounds.  A company in Wisconsin pulled it off in 2014, and then used it to hand out free scoops all weekend.

 

3.  We tend to be happier in summer.  A study in 2011 found it's true by analyzing tweets from 2.4 million people.  They say it might be because there's just more sun.

 

4.  The Eiffel Tower gets six inches taller in summer, because the metal expands from the heat.

 

5.  Wham-O started selling Frisbees in 1957.  But the first frisbees were actually PIE TINS college students liked to throw around.  And it's also where the name came from.  They got the tins from the Frisbie Pie Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

 

6.  We'll eat around 150 million hot dogs on Fourth of July weekend alone this summer.  That's enough to stretch across the country more than five times.

 

7.  There are over 300 varieties of watermelon in the world.

 

8.  There's enough water in an Olympic-sized swimming pool to take 9,400 baths.  That's enough to take one bath a day for 25 years.

 

9.  Popsicles were invented by mistake.  Back in 1905, a guy in San Francisco left some sugary water out overnight, and it froze.  Then he realized it was delicious.

 

10.  Americans drink about three billion gallons of iced tea a year.  According to the national Tea Association, over 75% of all the tea we drink here is of the iced variety.

UIL votes to allow live online streaming of Friday night high school football

 

 

The University Interscholastic League voted on Tuesday to allow Friday night high school football games to be live streamed on the internet.

 

The proposal was voted in by a clear majority, but it was not a unanimous decision.

 

Livestreaming was banned by the UIL every year until the 2020 season because they saw it as necessary because of COVID-19.

 

Many districts created a rule that required schools to provide some sort of livestream because attendance was limited at most high school stadiums across the state.

 

Abilene ISD and Wylie ISD, among others, streamed the Abilene High, Cooper, and Wylie games in the 2020 season, so you should look for them to do it again in 2021.

 

The ruling applies to online streaming only. Live broadcasts, over-the-air, of Friday night high school football games is still prohibited.

The Top Things We Do to Quickly Make Ourselves Happier

 

In this survey on self-love, we're surprised ACTUAL self-love didn't make this list . . . as in the manual kind.

 

A new study looked at the top things people do when they're in a bad mood and want to feel better.  Here are the 10 short-term mood boosters people said work best . . .

 

1.  Eating something.  But not always something healthy.  Sweets are the #1 choice.

 

2.  Taking a hot bath.

 

3.  Distracting yourself with a TV show or a book.

 

4.  Cooking something, or baking.

 

5.  Deep breathing or meditation.

 

6.  Cleaning your place.

 

7.  Exercising.

 

8.  Just going outside and getting some fresh air.

 

9.  Talking it out with a friend.

 

10.  Hanging out with your pet.  A stiff drink just missed the top 10 at #11.

Pizza Hut Is Bringing Back Its "Edge" Pizza from the '90s

 

Pizza Hut has been trying to take advantage of our '90s nostalgia with a marketing campaign called "NEWstalgia"... celebrating things like Book It pins and those tabletop Pac-Man games they had.  Here's their newest reboot...

 

Pizza Hut just announced they're bringing back a thin-crust pizza called "The Edge" that originally debuted in 1997.

 

The big selling point was that all the toppings went the whole way to the edge of the pie, so no crust.  Which might not seem like a huge innovation now... but it was apparently INSANE in the late '90s.

 

The pizza is made with their Thin 'N Crispy crust, which is the first type of dough they used at Pizza Hut in the 1950s.

 

They also brought The Edge back for a limited time in 2009, but it's been gone for over a decade.  And they say this one's a limited-time thing too. 

 

I guess they're not that nostalgic about PRICE though. The original Edge pizza debuted for $8.99, and the reboot costs $12.99.  (That's actually slightly cheaper if you adjust for inflation though.  Here's a photo.)
