Brian johnson joins AC/DC for new Album

In 2016, the lead singer of AC/DC was forced to quit the band due to hearing loss issues and was replaced by vocalist Axl Rose, the lead singer of Guns N Roses.
So far everything has been pure speculation and rumors, and whenever Brian was asked about it, he denied all rumors. That all changed Monday when a touring band by the name of Terrorizer ran into Johnson at a airport and confronted him about it.
Brian than confirmed that he was tired of denying it and says “yes its all true, I’m joining AC/DC for the new album.”
The new 18th studio album is said to include rhythm guitar tracks from the late guitarist Malcolm Young.

Police were called at 1:20 A.M. after Spence left a residence without proper winter attire.

A large-scale search has been ongoing since her disappearance.  So far, the combined foot, vehicle and snowmobile patrols haven’t turned up any information.

Spence, who is 26, is Indigenous, about 5’4″ and weights a little over 200 pounds.  She was last seen wearing a red, black and white sweater.  When she left the home where she was last seen, she was not wearing boots or a jacket.

Like all other parts of the province, Nelson House is experiencing very cold temperatures.  At 1 A.M. when she disappeared, the temperature in the area was -40 C with wind chills around -45 C.  Since then, it has only got colder.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Magen Spence should call Nelson House RCMP (204-484-2837) or Crime Stoppers (800-222-8477), or submit a secure tip online.

The WHL’s Kootenay Ice are moving to Winnipeg!

The Kootenay Ice WHL franchise that plays its’ home games in Cranbrook, BC is on it’s way to Manitoba! I don’t know what to say about ANOTHER hockey team moving to Winnipeg other than the fact that it’s exciting for now. We have the Jets, an NHL franchise that needs 100% support every night of the week or that Bettman guy is gonna yank it and put it in Huntsville, Alabama or some Southern US market. The AHL affiliate of our beloved Jets, the Manitoba Moose seems to have a hard time keeping the seats filled on a nightly basis and one that is having a new arena built for them. The market is oversaturated. I don’t know what else to say other than… GO ICE!

The Worlds Smelliest Fruit

The world’s smelliest fruit other wise known as the king of fruit (A.K.A The Durian) just went up for sale!
For one months salary the coconut sized spiky shelled fruit can  be yours.
Available only in Indonesia right now, the locals there are paying the equivalent of $1100 dollars.
Currency over there runs in Rupiah to which the locals make an estimate of 3.94 a month which is more than three times less than the 14 Rupiah price tag of the Durian.

One of the reasons why it’s so expensive is because of its rarity as one Durian tree only produces around 20 of the Spiky Fruit, every 3 years.

Described as a buttery peanut taste, the smell can be compared to rotting flesh, and raw sewage.
The smell is so bad in fact it has prompted areas all over the country to put up signage such as the one below.

yes, it is that smelly that they had to make signs for it.

This whole expensive fruit thing makes me curious of what else kind of fruit could be so expensive…
I’m just straight up baffled at what I found.
One single Pineapple produced at the Lost Gardens of Heligan, can fetch a price tag of $15,000 dollars!

Outrageous!
This is that garden.
