  2. Astronomers have found “spiders” on Mars. Somewhere, David Bowie is grinning.
  3. Someone has found a way to link Donald Trump to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
  4. Adele’s current tour has earned $150 million USD–so far.
  5. Some Guns’N’Roses lyrics have come up as evidence in a murder trial.
