It's Friday! Time to close some browser tabs and touch on the issues of the week.

Kicking off this week, a komodo dragon at the San Antonio Zoo received acupuncture to treat a degenerative bone disease in his knees. Click through to see the whole, weird photo album.


    In news that is of little surprise to feminists, science has determined that half of the Viking warriors were women.

    Andy Dwyer from Parks and Recreation says some pretty incredible things. Sometimes they are incredible because they are surprisingly deep. Most times, they are incredibly ridiculous. You guess which ones were included in the Andy Dwyer Motivational Posters from Buzzfeed. (Which, by the way, I would now like to purchase. #TreatYoself)

    Apple is building a massive structure at the Flint Center in Cupertino for its special Sept 9 event. Apple has not held and event at the Flint Center since it unveiled the original Macintosh in 1984. The unique, temporary structure outside the theater is new and is not standard practice for Apple events.

    The event, likely to unveil the iPhone 6 and possibly the long-rumored iWatch and next generation of iPads, will be live-streamed from Apple's website starting at noon cst on Tuesday, September 9.
