California continues to burn, millions without power

The fires still burn in California. Our own Greg Burke finally got home to Nicole and Nessie. They don't have power, but it seems like Highway 101 South might open up soon. Stay safe, Cali Shackers. 

H3 Podcast outs YouTuber for lying about unmonetizing her "trans video"

I have no idea why Trisha Paytas is popular on the Internet, but the H3 Podcast did a show with her this past weekend. Ethan called her out for lying about unmonetizing a controversial video.

Silly TikTok video for System of a Down fans

That song still rules, but this made me laugh. TikTok is a weird place on the Internet.

Browns fans on the Monday after that Patriots loss

The worst play of the game was when Mayfield threw a shovel pass directly to the Pats' D. 

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 1964...

MkLeo wins again at Ultimate Summit

          We'll have to see. I did the one week extension last time for Shacknews staff, and I'm hoping I don't have to this time, especially since 14% of the prize money is going to Shacknews Editor's Choice.
