This time last year: we finally figured out what weird box was, and what Vintage 21 is, we explored the beer blog from Raleigh Times, RBC was adding its final height, a guy tried to be a prince on Facebook, a shoplifting man forgot his son, we learned what to do with bad snorers, and Cornflakes shaped like states were being sold for $1,300.

Happy Tuesday folks!!
