These are some of the most interesting trending topics that caught my eye.
1. Skittles banned California
In February 2023, a new bill in the California legislature was introduced to prohibit the manufacture, sale or distribution of any food product in California containing the chemicals red dye No. 3 (commonly listed as red #3 in ingredients on food packaging), titanium dioxide, potassium bromate, brominated vegetable oil or propylparaben.
This bill will affect popular snacks, candies and chocolates but it’s not an outright ban on Skittles. The bill only aims to change the ingredient makeup of these candies, which has already been done in other parts of the world, such as Europe.
2. Raining worms in China
A viral video in March 2023 apparently showed cars in China covered in “worms”, suggesting that it was “raining worms.” However, a Reuters fact-check showed that they were likely tree catkins, the flower spikes of poplar trees.
3. Amazon snake cats
In March 2023, a bizarre image of a black and yellow cat went viral.
This cat, known as a “snake cat”, was supposedly a poorly-studied, rare species that came from the depths of the Amazon rainforest. Turns out: It was merely AI.
4. Mine spiders
5. Hello ghostface com
Ghostface is the primary antagonist in the movie franchise, Scream. A website, helloghostface.com, allows you to receive a (pre-recorded, scary) call from the character. This is likely a PR move to promote Scream VI, which was released in theaters on 10 March 2023.
6. Seaweed blob
Giant clumps of murky seaweed, termed the Great Atlantic sargassum belt, washed up on Florida’s beaches on May 2023.
Sargussum is a type of buoyant, rootless algae that bunches up in islands and floats around the ocean. Within 24 hours of washing up on shore, they start to decay, which gives off the smell of rotten eggs. There’s also evidence to show that the smell can cause nausea, headaches, or cause respiratory issues.
7. Is Temu legit
Temu is an online shopping megastore that is owned by Pinduoduo. It became the number one free shopping app in both Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store recently. It looks like people are wondering if Temu is legit, because its products are so cheap. And it is, though consumers in the U.S. may experience long delivery times.
8. What killed Mickey Mouse
I just came back from Disneyland and saw no news of the Mouse’s demise. However, it appears that even fictional characters can suffer from death hoaxes. “What killed Mickey Mouse” developed into a trend on TikTok and people started wondering if the mascot was still alive. And if he wasn’t, how did he die? Dark.
9. Whopper whopper song
“Whopper whopper” is a song released by Burger King on 3 February 2023. It serves as the jingle for their signature burger, the Whopper. It became notorious because it was catchy and played many times during NFL commercial breaks. Unfortunately, it is now a meme.
10. Jake Gyllenhaal UFC
