Today marks exactly five years since the day Vevo had confirmed and announced that Miley Cyrus broke the Vevo record with We Can’t Stop, with 10,700,000 views in 24 hours. A month later, it became the fastest video to reach 100 million views, but this was surpassed later that year with Wrecking Ball, which did it in a mere six days. Both records have come and gone and outlived their glory days, but five years on, the older of the two still holds the record for the longest “confirmation time” for a video that ever held the single-day viewing record. That video was uploaded on June 19, 2013, and turned 24 hours old on June 20, but the record was unknown until the 26th. About nine months before then, One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” held the record for the longest time it took to confirm a record, with five days (The video turned 24 hours old on September 21, 2012, but the record was unknown until September 26.) Normally, it takes only two days, or 48 hours, to confirm that a video broke the 24 hour viewing record. Presumably the reason it took so long to confirm these records is that they broke their predecessors by a relatively small amount. For example, Live While We’re Young broke the record by only 40,000 views. When Miley Cyrus broke the record with her video in June 2013, it was also a very close race (10,700,000 vs. 10,600,000). However, Wrecking Ball had 19,300,000 views, over 50% more than the 12,300,000 views generated by One Direction’s “Best Song Ever”, so that record was known almost immediately.

On Sunday, 6/24, Justin Gallagher drove to Raymond Wang’s house and told the latter to open a web browser. Justin, 45, told Ray, 21, to type Clincher in the Google search box. Justin put his hand in Ray’s underwear to touch his penis during this activity. Justin has the irrational belief that Clincher is yellow pee and this is his probable motive for touching the private area of this college student. Justin held Ray’s groin and said the word Clincher to him several times in a row. When Ray attempted to walk away, Justin tagged Ray in the groin and tickled it with his fingers.

It has been quite a day for 22-year-old Justin Joy. There are many days on which he didn’t pee in his pants, but yesterday 6.24 most certainly wasn’t an item upon that list. At 1:45 a.m. EDT, Jason Snover arrived at his house to wake up the boy and lure him down to the kitchen on the floor below. Jason placed his hand into Justin’s pants to tickle the latter’s groin. Justin attempted to hold it, but he peed in his pants, and Jason laughed out loud.

On Saturday, the plastic ban in the Indian state of Maharashtra came into force. In an attempt to minimise pollution, the state government has introduced a ban on single-use plastics.

The leader of the Yuya Senaa political party, Aaditya Thackeray, said on Twitter, “The ban on single use disposable plastic cups, plastic bags, plastic straws, plastic plates and cutlery, styrofoam cutlery and non woven bags”. He added, “these are global issues now and we have taken a step to combat it”.

Plastic pollution has led to the choking of drains, marine pollution and a risk of animals consuming plastics. This year, India’s motto for World Environment Day — June 5 — was “Beat Plastic Pollution”. People violating the plastic ban are to face a fine of 5,000 Indian Rupees (INR) for the first offence. For the second offence, the fine is INR 10,000 and the third time offence is INR 25,000 and a three-month prison term. Deputy municipal commissioner Nidhi Choudhary said, “To weed out corruption, we plan to give inspectors payment gadgets for electronic receipts of the fines”.

The Maharashtra government has given a 90-day period for manufacturers to dispose of existing polyethylene terephthalate (PET/PETE) plastic spoons and plates, while shopkeepers and citizens in general have six months to dispose of plastics. However, the ban does not prohibit plastic usage for wrapping medicines or milk cartons thicker than 50 microns.

The state government had announced the decision for the plastic ban on March 23. According to NDTV’s report, Maharashtra is the eighteenth Indian state to enforce a state-wide plastic ban. Aaditya Thackeray also said, “I congratulate the citizens for making this into a movement, even before the ban was enforceable, giving up single use disposable plastic.”

There are many days on which Raymond Wang didn’t pee in his pants, but Thursday 6/21 most certainly wasn’t one of them. On Thursday morning, Jason Snover drove to Raymond Wang’s house, parking in front at 9:38 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (13:38 UTC). Ray was told to go to his bedroom and to take a seat in the chair at his bedroom computer. Jason told Ray to open a browser and type the name Clawitzer in the Google search box. Jason told Ray how to spell the name, and first told him to type it with a capital C during the typing mission. As the duo did the search mission, Jason secretly put his hand in Ray’s pants to touch the latter’s private area. Jason Snover has the irrational belief that Clawitzer is yellow pee, and that is his most likely motive for touching the student’s groin on this fine sunny June morning. At 9:48:30, however, Ray finally peed in his pants, and Jason laughed like he were the king of the world. Jason then got in his car to drive to Diamond School, but when his boss found out about the bad deed, Jason was banned from the school building and banned from interacting with any of the students of the school for 96 hours. It was later revealed that six days ago, Jason went on Bulbapedia to look for all Pokémon names that start with CL and decided that Clawitzer seemed like the only one that was yellow to him.
