WTF News: Jussie Smollett, Waterproof Sarees At Kumbh, Artificial Leaves And More
A lot of messed up stuff happened recently and we’ve made a roundup of all of them. Go ahead and read through all of them:
Scientists Create Artificial Leaves That Absorb 10 Times As Much CO2 Than Natural Leaves
We all know that pants absorb carbon dioxide from the air and give out oxygen, but with the amount of pollution in the air and deforestation on the rise, its getting hard for plants to keep up. So, scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) decided to invent “artificial leaves” that can mimic the same way natural leaves work. If that wasn’t good enough, these leaves absorb 10x more CO2 than natural leaves.
Jussie Smollett’s Fake Hate Crime
Empire star Jussie Smollett had earlier revealed he was a victim of a hate crime alleging two men attacked him and screamed homophobic and racist slurs at him. But out of nowhere, he turned himself to the police admitting he made it all up all just because he wanted the attention and hoped it would help raise his salary.
Waterproof Sarees Were Distributed At The Kumbh Mela
This is a little weird when you read it, but when you realize why it was done, you would no longer find it weird. Indiatimes reported how a popular soap brand distributed waterproof sarees to women to help protect their modesty. Why did they do this? Because women at Kumbh are unfortunately a target for perverted eyes. Women take a dip in the water as part of a ritual and naturally, their clothes stick close to their body, which perverted men love ogling at. The aim was to provided women with these waterproof sarees so that they no longer have to stand uncomfortably while men stare at them after they take a dip.
Anyone who read this drama, naturally just yelled WTF. Tristan Thompson cheating is never a big deal. in fact, if he stayed loyal for even 6 months would be more surprising. If you didn’t know, Khloe Kardashian’s (hopefully soon-to-be ex) boyfriend, Tristan Thompson has had a long history of cheating on her. But this time, it reached a whole other level when the girl he cheated on, turned out to be her sister, Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.
