Today is December 18th, and this is a late edition of the WWGO. On this date in 1898, a new automobile speed record was set at 39 mph, a top speed matched today only by the Chevy Volt. Also on this date, in 1957, the world’s first full-scale nuclear power plant went online in Shippingport, Pennsylvania, home to America’s only three-eyed fish population (unrelatedly). And finally, today is International Answer the Phone Like Buddy the Elf Day, when you, well, answer the phone like Buddy the Elf from the movie Elf. Like “What’s your favorite color” for example. Here, it’s all in this pamphlet.
Below, find an abbreviated list of today’s links, including the WWGO’s first video of the day, and as usual, please consider this an Open Thread.
