Pot-loving people get SO EXCITED when the numbers 4 and 20 land near each other. Thinkstock

MONDAY, APRIL 20 This week of crappy comedy, Nepalese tragedy, and a huge step forward for transgender awareness in America kicked off with 4/20, the popularly acknowledged, sloppily defined "marijuana holiday" that's also a twice-daily clock occurrence that doesn't actually mean anything but boy do pot-loving people get excited when the numbers 4 and 20 land near each other. Stories on the origin of 4/20 abound—it's the penal code criminalizing weed use! It's police radio code for marijuana smoking! It's the number of chemical compounds in cannabis!—and 99.9 percent of them are bullshit. The closest thing to a true story involves a group of Northern California high schoolers, who in the early 1970s would meet up for after-school weed-based adventures at 4:20 p.m. The "4/20" euphemism was picked up by the group's wider circle of friends, including members of the Grateful Dead, eventually passing to the band's fans and the editor of High Times magazine. In less groovy news, 4/20 is also the anniversary of the Columbine massacre and Hitler's birthday.

TUESDAY, APRIL 21 In goopier news, the week continued in West London, where a brutally clogged sewer led to the discovery of a hot new inanimate British celebrity—a 10-ton lump of congealed fat and soiled wet wipes hailed as a "fatberg." "Fatbergs—formed when fat clumps together with other household waste—are becoming an increasing problem for London's sewers," reported the Guardian, noting that the food businesses of London produce more than 30 million liters of used cooking oil annually, and that the latest and largest fatberg was 131 feet long and "so heavy that it broke the 1940s-era sewer."

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22 Speaking of shitty doings, the week continued in New Mexico, where today brought a fresh day of filming for the forthcoming comedy The Ridiculous Six. "The film, which is said to be a spoof of The Magnificent Seven and was written by Adam Sandler and his frequent collaborator Tim Herlihy, is currently under production by Happy Madison Productions for a Netflix-only release," reported Indian Country Today Media Network. "The movie will star Adam Sandler, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Jon Lovitz, and Vanilla Ice." Notably missing from today's shoot: a dozen or so Native American actors and the film's Native cultural adviser, all of whom fled the set after being exposed to the script. "The actors, who were primarily from the Navajo Nation, left the set after the satirical western's script repeatedly insulted Native women and elders and grossly misrepresented Apache culture," reported ICTMN. "[Navajo Nation tribal member Loren] Anthony says he was first insulted that the movie costumes that were supposed to portray Apache were significantly incorrect and that the jokes seemed to get progressively worse."

(Among the cited offenses: Sandler's character propositioning a Native woman by suggesting he put his "pee-pee in [her] tepee," and Native female characters given names like "Sits-on-Face" and "No Bra.") When the Native cultural adviser and cast members raised their concerns, "The producers just told us, 'If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,'" departed Native cast member Allison Young told ICTMN. "They were bringing up those same old arguments that Dan Snyder uses in defending the Redskins," added 74-year-old David Hill, a Choctaw and a member of the American Indian Movement, who also left the set. "It is a real shame, because a lot of people probably stay because they need a job."

THURSDAY, APRIL 23 Nothing happened today, unless you count the press conference held by three more women accusing Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them in the 1970s and '80s. "The trio of women, including a former Reno bartender, joined the more than 40 women who said they were drugged or sexually assaulted by the comedian," reported Time.

FRIDAY, APRIL 24 In exponentially better celebrity news, the week continued with Bruce Jenner, the history-making Olympic athlete and longtime fatherly prop on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, who tonight revealed to nearly 16 million television viewers—via the broadcast of his wide-ranging interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer—that he identifies as a woman and is transitioning from male to female. First things first: "For the purpose of the interview, Mr. Jenner said he preferred the pronoun 'he,' and Ms. Sawyer called him Bruce," the New York Times reported. "He said that he had been undergoing hormone therapy for a year and a half but had not made up his mind about reassignment surgery. He declined to provide the name he might use during or after his transition, citing privacy concerns." Beyond the (amazing) basics, the 65-year-old Jenner opened up about the specifics of his journey, and between the eloquent proclamations of support from friends and family (in addition to being a musical genius, Kanye West is the world's best son-in-law) and the heroic bravery displayed by Jenner himself, Last Days was more than once brought to tears. Thank you, Bruce Jenner, and congratulations, America, which has been given an exemplary opportunity to familiarize itself with the facts of trans life.

SATURDAY, APRIL 25 In exponentially worse news, today brought a huge, deadly earthquake in Nepal, with the 7.8 magnitude quake hitting near Kathmandu, wrecking ancient temples and new buildings, inspiring Mount Everest avalanches, and killing thousands of people. "Residents grew frantic and the government, entirely overwhelmed by the enormousness of the challenge facing the country, struggled to provide relief, or much hope," reported the New York Times. "Streets in parts of this city of about 1.2 million were impassable, not so much from quake damage but because tens of thousands of people have taken up residence there."

SUNDAY, APRIL 26 Nothing happened today, unless you count the continuation of heartbreaking reports out of Nepal. As of press time, more than 5,000 people will have been reported killed and many, many more injured. To donate 10 measly but cumulatively crucial dollars to the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund, text GIVE NEPAL to 80088. recommended
