Friday Wrap: Joe Biden's Greatest State of the Union Moments and More...

by: Burnt Orange Report

It's Friday! Time for your Burnt Orange Reporters to close some browser tabs and touch on the issues of the week.

We're not entirely sure where this hyper-accurate graphic of this past week's weather came from, but we really identified with it.

Below the jump, watch a mole swim through cous cous for science, see one of our favorite Olympic ski uniforms, and more...

This guy is going for the Olympic Gold in the style competition.

Speaking of the Olympics, this week Huffington Post takes us back in time to some of the most fangirl-worthy female figure skaters of the 80's and 90's. Did you know that Michelle Kwan, along with being a bonafide badass, is now a senior adviser for public diplomacy and public affairs for the State Department? As the HuffPo author says, "Get it, girl."

Yes, there were many important policies and social issues addressed in this year's State of the Union. But we all know what - or should I say who - took center stage. Hello, Vice President Joe Biden! You never disappoint me, boo!

-Genevieve Cato


Greg's Opinion has a fantastic post up looking at disparities in affadavit usage in Harris County at early voting locations in November 2013.
