NEVADA

There’s a new record for the most retweets on a single tweet, set by a man on a quest for nuggets.

Carter Wilkerson jokingly tweeted at fast food chain Wendy’s, asking how many retweets he would need for a year’s supply of free chicken nuggets.

Wendy’s replied with 18 million, which would require a Herculean feat, considering the most retweets on a single post was 3.4 million, a record set by Ellen DeGeneres in 2014.

While Wilkerson was only able to reach 3.5 million, he earned his reward from Wendy’s.

Wilkerson went on the Ellen show as a result of his newfound fame and was offered a 55-inch television and a year’s supply of underwear, as long as anyone who retweeted his request for nuggets retweeted DeGeneres’ famous Oscars selfie.

JAPAN

A Japanese university plans to be the first to openly study the stealthy art of ninjas. The assassins clad in black have become increasingly common in the island country as officials have employed them to promote tourism as the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games are approaching. This prompted Mie University in central Japan to announce its creation of a ninja research facility in July, touted as the first of its kind.

The center plans to publish the results of its research both in English and Japanese.

INDIANA

Three strikes, you’re out, with  a complementary ticket for your trouble. An Indianapolis man was ticketed for animal cruelty after striking a Canadian goose three times with a baseball bat. The man, James Daniel, told WXIN-TV that he hit the bird to stop it from chasing his four-year-old son. Indiana’ state law allows individuals to protect themselves from animals with reasonable force. Daniel was scheduled to challenge the ticket in court this week.
