There’s plenty of Regrexit in Great Britain (which has been downgraded to Good Britain) after Brexit. Elections have consequences, and the Washington Post reports one Brit says, “If I had thought this through, I would have voted to stay in. I would certainly do so now." That type of thinking is probably what spawned the connection between England’s Mad Cow Disease outbreak in 1992 and the Brexit vote.

This is not your ordinary story about a bear invading a campsite and drinking beer. Washington State Fish and Wildlife agents say the black bear in question drank 36 cans of beer and passed out on the lawn of Baker Lake Resort. But those agents say this bear prefers Rainier Beer over Busch. How do they know? Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest. The beast then consumed about 36 cans of Rainier. Agents were forced to trap the animal for relocation, baiting the trap with doughnuts, honey and two open cans of Rainier.
Show Me SubTropolis
Missouri is home to a huge cave complex that provides the state with the lowest-cost school commodities distribution system in the U.S. The 5 million foot facility – dubbed “SubTropolis” – allows the state to keep vegetables, fruit, dry goods and meat at a stable temperature of 65 to 70 degrees F year-round. That reduces refrigeration costs to just 22 cents to store an entire case of food.

Packers are enjoying a profitable time, with current profits at about $200 per head.
