Seth and Kat’s 4 Things You Need To Know-March 9th

1.

Transportation officials say the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 near Joint Base Lewis-McChord were closed for a while overnight, as crews worked to remove what’s been described as an “unexploded munition.” Railroad workers yesterday uncovered what officials say appeared to be a very old landmine near JBLM’s Main Gate. Officials say it looked as if the device had been buried there for a long time. (Read more from Q13)

Disney may have just spoiled Luke’s first words to Rey in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’. The end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens gave us the answer to one of the film’s biggest questions—Where is Luke?—but his silence upon meeting Rey left fans wondering what he would say first to the young woman with his old lightsaber. As it turns out, we might have already found out well before we’ve seen any footage from the film.  At a meeting Wednesday, Disney shareholders were treated to preview footage from The Last Jedi.

Froot Loot (think Froot Loops, obviously), Frozen Flakes (cornflakes) and Cocoa Loco (the cocoa cereal you’d go cuckoo for). The catch? (There’s always a catch.) The cereal milk flavors are only available at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops, so you can’t just grab a pint from your local grocery store.

A new Google Chrome browser extension called “Nope” aims to help users escape from conversations with co-workers. The Nope extension features a button at the top of the user’s browser that they can click when approached by a co-worker serving up some annoying conversation. “Press this button to send a call to your phone. Apologize sincerely as you pick it up. Then watch them walk away,” the extension’s description reads. The phone call features a recorded voice on the other end giving instructions to the user. “On the count of 3, put your hand to your mouth as if you are hearing bad news. Wave and point at the phone so you look away,” the recorded voice suggests. “Repeat these words after me in a serious and concerned tone: ‘Yes of course I can talk now, what’s the matter?'” (Read more from Business Insider)
