Three years and three months later, a massive oil spill in North Dakota still isn't fully cleaned up. The company responsible hasn't even set a date for completion.
Though crews have been working around the clock to deal with the Tesoro Corp. pipeline break, which happened in a wheat field in September 2013, less than a third of the 840,000 gallons that spilled has been recovered -- or ever will be, North Dakota Health Department environmental scientist Bill Suess said. read more
After 35 years on the job, Michael Stuban was minutes away from retiring from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Only one thing stood in his way: emailing his exit questionnaire to the Human Resources Department. Stuban had already decided to use the questionnaire to get a few things off his chest, penning a brutally frank assessment of his colleagues and bosses and how they functioned inside the state-run agency. Now, the 58-year-old stood at a crossroads. To the left was the nicely paved road to the HR Department, to which Stuban could quietly send his scathing critique, like a good rule-following employee to the very end. To the right was a rockier but far more adventurous path known as the "reply all" button. On this route, Stuban could live out the fantasy of disgruntled workers everywhere, ending his career in a blaze of glory, essentially yelling "Sayonara, suckers!" at the top of his lungs -- his name forever infamous.

Google Earth Timelapse is a really awesome project that lets you turn back the clock on Planet Earth. In 2013, Google worked with the US Geological Survey (USGS), NASA, and TIME to compile a history of satellite imagery from 1984 to 2012. Today, Google updated the project with "four additional years of imagery, petabytes of new data, and a sharper view of the Earth from 1984 to 2016." read more
A fake news story prompted a man to fire a rifle at a popular Washington, D.C., pizza place as he attempted to "self-investigate" a conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton was running a child sex ring from there, police said.
