Star Wars fans attend the 53rd annual Antalya Film Festival

Stardate, 2016. Even bald-headed Jean-Luc Picard and what I can only assume is an oversized Tribble need to go to the bathroom at a film festival recently. Maybe they don't teach that at the Starfleet Academy. Live long and prosper, guys!

Laborers in India stack bags of onions in the city of Hyderabad. The price of onions in India fell from 3 to 2.20 INR per kilogram. In US dollars, this means the price of onions dropped from $0.04 to $0.03. Over the past few months, good harvests in India have lead to the continued rise and fall of vegetable prices. While a fall in price seems beneficial for customers, farmers in India have faced devastating losses because of oversupply compared to the consumer demand.

US Composer David Teie promotes his album 'Music for Cats' at Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium 

So apparently there's music made specifically for cats now? I don't know what crazy person thought this was a necessary thing to have in the world, but it makes me happy. Cats are hands down the worst species in the animal kingdom. Still, I suppose they deserve to have some fun.

While Carl Sandberg once wrote, "Snow changes our bones into fog streamers caught by the wind and spelled into many dances," this woman in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, on Monday may have been thinking this: Thank goodness I wore my boots today.
