Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.

Kim Kardashian sues over allegations she faked robbery

Was Kim Kardashian's recent robbery in Paris a hoax orchestrated to allow her to make a massive insurance claim? MediaTakeOut seems to think so, and Kimmy K is going to sue the gossip site for making such unsubstantiated claims. And she'll probably win: MediaTakeOut's only leads appear to be conspiracy theories swirling around on social media. Great journalism, guys. – Jezebel

Coca-Cola and Pepsi are evil hypocrites

Evidence has emerged that the world's biggest soda duopoly has been simultaneously funding health groups while lobbying politicians to prevent them from regulating the sugar content of fatty foodstuffs and imposing any meaningful anti-obesity regulations. Between 2011 and 2015 both Coca-Cola and Pepsi showered 96 health organizations with many millions of dollars while also showering politicians with bundles of money to stave off legislation that might effect their business model. – CBS News

Joe Jonas reveals he's a sex fiend in Reddit AMA

As someone who does their best to avoid lamestream popular culture, I was surprised to see that Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers gave a Reddit AMA yesterday where he elaborated on some of his sexual escapades. Considering that he used to be in a band that championed their sexless virginity as something admirable, it came as a bit of a shock to see one of the Jonas' discussing the length of his penis in comparison to his brothers, losing his virginity to Ashley Greene, and demolishing his bandmates room while searching for condoms. What's even stranger is that Redditors were asking him these questions. – E! Online

More and more scientists think our world might be a simulation

If you're unfamiliar with a the "simulation hypothesis," it's basically a theory that suggests that we're all living in a giant computer simulation, kind of like the Matrix. Elon Musk has discussed it before and an increasing number of scientists are showing an interest in the theory, starting up studies to test the theory. Reasons to believe that the universe is a simulation include the fact that it behaves mathematically and is broken up into pieces (subatomic particles) like a pixelated video game, and developments in both video game technology and augmented reality are helping build a framework to put our own IRL reality to the test. – The Guardian

The Chicago Cubs reach National League Championship Series

The Chicago Cubs' 108-year wait for a Major League Baseball title is one step closer to ending after the team reached the National League Championship Series following a 6-5 win against the San Francisco Giants. This was the fourth game of the series after the Cubs lost the previous match by the same scoreline and a dramatic turnaround was needed after they found themselves trailing 5-2 at one point. In the next match they face either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Washington Nationals. – New York Times
