The Weekend Desk Report

By Natasha Julius

You don't need any saucy tweets to know we're working our pants off for you.

Market Update
If you're looking for a quick flip in the next ten months or so, Relics are about to go through the roof.

Stone Cold
The Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva reached a milestone this week, as the massive structure reached its operating temperature of just 1.9 Kelvin. Hovering just above Absolute Zero, the LHC is officially colder than anything except, of course, Urban Meyer's cold, dead heart.

No Such Thing . . .
In other news, duh.

Splash and Flash
In an effort to draw attention to the fate of their low-lying island nation, the Maldives cabinet this week staged a meeting under water. Not to be outdone, the three-headed leader of another island nation announced they will hold their upcoming summit meeting at the bottom of a fiery lake with controversial celebrity guests and twice the normal attendants to draw attention to their own fabulousness.

Take on Peace
Finally this week, while American society has absorbed the shock of last week's announcement in Oslo, the same cannot be said for the nation that hosts the Peace Prize committee. Many believe the fallout now has rent the very fabric of Norway's most venerable cultural institution.
