Watching the news on TV can be boring. Blah blah blah congress passed a bill, blah blah blah climate change, blah blah blah local woman kills husband with grapefruit spoon, blah blah BLAH. The news can be so routine, even with its horrific stories about car accidents, murders, drug busts, and warnings pondering if the canned soup you eat is slowly killing you (spoiler: it is), we easily become numb and even tune it all out entirely.

Not these stories though. These unreported true events, tales, and accomplishments sometimes get buried in the media because it doesn't involve some celebrity or senator embarrassing themself in front of another celebrity or senator. Did you hear about one town's sea lion infestation? Or the artist that is suing another artist for plagiarizing his invisible air sculpture? Or the Guinness World record for stacking M&Ms?

Of course you hadn't. Because the news sucks at their job. Let us help.
