The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a long-standing tradition and it’s a pretty fun, innocent affair. But this year, some students from Tufts University found something unusual in the shower of confetti that graced the parade— pieces of confidential Nassau County police documents, with enough information intact to identify police officers by name and Social Security number.
It’s only been a few months since Texas raised the interstate speed limit to 85 mph, on Thanksgiving day, holiday traffic plus the nation’s highest speed limit plus dense fog near the city of Beaumont all contributed to a gigantic 140 car pile-up that left two dead and over 80 injured.
Oh yeah I know… people outside the US are like “Whatever, it’s just Thursday.” But here in the US, we’re getting ready to stuff our already fat fucking faces with more food than we really should be eating. So what are you doing this lovely Thanksgiving day?
