Someone found out they failed their midterm in a hilariously tragic Twitter saga

It's not every day you learn about the fate of your GPA on Twitter, but that's where we are in the freakishly-connected world of 2017. 

On Thursday morning, one Twitter user happened to notice that a professor was grading tests next to him on a flight, and he decided the best thing to do was to tweet about it.  

"If there's a Taiwan Jones at Howard, boy you failed the fuck out ya midterm," he wrote on Twitter

Solange calls out a UK magazine for Photoshopping her braids out of the cover

If there's anything the beauty industry, the media, basically everywhere constantly fails at, it's celebrating one's own natural look. 

The London Evening Standard magazine has done just that this week, with their cover photo of Solange Knowles. In the original picture, Knowles wore an elaborate braid above her head and the publication decided to Photoshop it out.

For an artist who has a song titled "Don't Touch My Hair," this obviously upset her.

The strongest storm on Earth right now is heading for Japan

Super Typhoon Lan has been undergoing rapid intensification on Thursday night and Friday, and may reach Category 5 intensity by Saturday morning. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 150 miles per hour as of Friday afternoon, eastern time, and was still slowly intensifying.

Super Typhoon Lan is in a favorable environment for strengthening, and is likely on a collision course with highly populated areas of Japan while in a weaker, but still formidable state.

One characteristic of this storm that's clear from satellite imagery is that it has developed a massive eye about 50 miles in diameter. To put that into perspective, if you put the center of the storm on top of Manhattan, it would encompass parts of New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley of New York, southwestern Connecticut, and western Long Island.  Read more...

3 reasons you should pay attention to the Google-led $1 billion Lyft investment

Lyft got a major boost in the form of a billion-dollar investment round, and an earlier rumor was confirmed: CapitalG, Google parent company Alphabet's growth equity fund, led the round.

The investment brings Lyft's post-money valuation up to $11 billion from $7.5 billion just six months ago, and places CapitalG Partner David Lawee on the company's board. The round gives Lyft an extra boost as it prepares to dive into some major strategic projects after rapidly expanding this year, as the company says it grew from being available to 54 percent of the U.S. population to 95 percent in 2017 alone.  Read more...

Whether you're trying to fit a healthy meal into your diet or you just want to kick back with a nice, cool smoothie, yogurt can make for an awesome snack.

'Thor: Ragnarok' stands as the best-reviewed superhero movie of all time

But can it last?

With nearly 50 reviews recorded on Rotten Tomatoes as of midday Friday, Thor: Ragnarok is (so far) the best-reviewed superhero film of all time, scoring a 98% fresh rating that's four percentage points better than the next runners up, 94% fresh Iron Man and The Dark Knight (with the 1978 Superman just a step behind at 93%).

To keep that title, however, Thor: Ragnarok has a ways to go. 

SEE ALSO: There's a secret way to predict a movie's Rotten Tomatoes score

Major superehero releases tend to have 250-350 reviews by the end of their reviews cycle, and the God of Thunder just got out of the gate. Hot Rotten Tomatoes starts almost always tend to trend slightly downwards; Blade Runner 2049, for instance, opened to 95% fresh in its first week after reviews came in, only to settle in at 88% after trailing critics finally posted.

Can we just talk about John Green's new novel 'Turtles All The Way Down' real quick?

John Green is back!

Earlier in October, John Green broke his writing hiatus and released a new YA novel, Turtles All the Way Down, his first book in six years. 

The book follows Aza Holmes, a 16-year-old would-be detective living in Indianapolis who is trying to track down a missing billionaire, Russell Pickett, with her friend Daisy. But Pickett isn't the only one Aza is trying to find. Aza also lives with severe OCD and anxiety, and frequently gets trapped in thought spirals. One of her big fears is that she is "a fiction" as she struggles to escape her spirals and find herself.

Stitch Fix filed for an IPO, and here's what we learned

After months of speculation, Stitch Fix filed for its IPO on Thursday. 

The clothing subscription service bared all in its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. And it taught us a few things about a company readying to go public just as it faces competition from—who else?—Amazon. 

Business is good

Stitch Fix's business model is simple: it sends clothes it thinks you'll like to your house to try. If you like what the startup sends, you can buy those pieces, and if not, you can send them back. You pay a $20 styling fee, but if you buy any of the items Stitch Fix sends you, the fee goes toward the price.  Read more...

Theory: Taylor Swift's new song 'Gorgeous' is about a cute dog she saw outside the club

Taylor Swift released "Gorgeous," her new single from Reputation, on Friday. As you might expect, the song is all about someone who is gorgeous — and most people are thinking that's Joe Alwyn, Swift's current boyfriend and a pleasant-looking British man.

Respectfully, these people are all wrong. As a close reading of the lyrics will show you, "Gorgeous" is about one thing and one thing only: a cute dog Taylor Swift recently saw outside the club.
