Now, i know you're thinking: "Yeah, and, so what?" Next topic. Right? Well, before you get into the "so what" state of mind, let me show you WHY he slid from #1 to #13.
CHICAGO – Three weeks ago, Laremy Tunsil was the likely No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. On Thursday, he suffered one of the most bizarre falls down the draft board in recent history. Tunsil slid behind Notre Dame’s Ronnie Stanley, drafted by the Baltimore Ravens at No. 6, and Michigan State’s Jack Conklin, to the Tennessee Titans at No. 8, until the Miami Dolphins finally ended his fall at 9:43 p.m. ET at pick No. 13.
Belgium is getting ready to issue iodine pills to its entire population of 11 million people, according to reports. The plan comes in response to rumors and fears that ISIS-linked bombers may have a “dirty nuclear bomb” in the works. As NBC News reports, it was just a few months ago that it was discovered that a top scientist may have been spied on by some of ISIS’s bomb makers, and Belgium has been reeling in the aftermath of both terror attacks and the discovery that it was home to sophisticated terror cells.
In addition to concerns over potential nuclear terror attacks in Belgium, the country is planning to issue the iodine pills because of concerns related to the nation’s crumbling nuclear energy infrastructure. Two of Belgium’s reactors are 40-years-old.
Fear over safety of reactors across the border in Belgium prompts government to order 15m pills, which help reduce radiation build-up in the body.
The Dutch government has ordered 15m iodine pills to protect people living near nuclear plants in case of an accident, as concerns rise over ageing reactors across the border in Belgium.
The iodine pills, which help reduce radiation build-up in the thyroid, would be given first to children under 18 and pregnant women living within a 100-kilometre (62-mile) radius of a plant, health ministry spokeswoman Edith Schippers said.
SAN DIEGO -- U.S. authorities said Wednesday that they discovered a cross-border tunnel that ran a half-mile from a Tijuana house equipped with a large elevator to a lot in San Diego that was advertised as a wooden pallet business, resulting in seizures of more than a ton of coc aine and seven tons of marijuana.
It was the 13th sophisticated secret passage found along California's border with Mexico since 2006, including three on the same short street in San Diego that runs parallel to a border fence with a densely populated residential area on the Mexican side. The unusually narrow tunnel was only about three feet wide, equipped with a rail system, lighting and ventilation.

To most people in the Northern Hemisphere, May Day conjures images of brightly colored twirling ribbons and promises of warm days ahead. That's not the whole story, though: May Day is also a day of protests and riots that traces its modern roots back to a world-changing explosion in Chicago.
Mayday is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications. It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by aviators and mariners, but in some countries local organizations such as firefighters, police forces, and transportation organizations also use the term. The call is always given three times in a row ("Mayday Mayday Mayday") to prevent its being mistaken for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual Mayday call from a message about a Mayday call
Mayday is a Taiwanese rock band that was formed in the late 1990s with five members, Ashin (A Shin) (lead vocals), Monster (Guai Shou) and Stone (Shi Tou) (guitar), Masa (Ma-sha) (bass guitar) and Guan You (Guan-You) (drums). Formerly making music under the name of So Band, they came to be known as Mayday in 1997, with the name originating from Masa's online nickname.
Mayday won the Golden Melody Award for Best Band in 2001, 2004, 2009 and 2012. They are known as "king of concert" in China.
A suggested origin of the superstition—Friday, 13 October 1307, the date Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of the Knights Templar. It is mentioned in the 1955 Maurice Druon historical novel The Iron King (Le Roi de fer), John J. Robinson's 1989 work Born in Blood: The Lost Secrets of Freemasonry, Dan Brown's 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code and Steve Berry's The Templar Legacy (2006).
According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day, making it the most feared day and date in history. Some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed. "It's been estimated that [US]$800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day".

Can you please just tell us in plain English what this is all about? Are you high on something? And what does "The draft started on 4/27; which happens to be 13" mean? Just sort it out, man.
May 13 is the date of the first Fátima apparition.
The third part of the secret is a symbolic revelation, referring to this part of the Message, conditioned by whether we accept or not what the Message itself asks of us: ‘If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, etc.'.
Since we did not heed this appeal of the Message, we see that it has been fulfilled, Russia has invaded the world with her errors. And if we have not yet seen the complete fulfilment of the final part of this prophecy, we are going towards it little by little with great strides. If we do not reject the path of sin, hatred, revenge, injustice, violations of the rights of the human person, immorality and violence, etc.

It was pretty stupid for him to put that up on social media anyway, knowing that his draft pick was coming up.
