Do you live in the Golden State? If so, say goodbye to a mainstay of soda counters: the humble plastic straw. Food & Wine reports that Governor Jerry Brown of California has just signed a law that bans full-service restaurants from passing out plastic straws with drinks.

No, this is not an episode of Breaking Bad . This is real life. On Friday, Sept. 21, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) posted on Facebook about a drug mix up that sounds like it has just as wild a story behind it as the hit AMC TV series. The department received 45 boxes of donated bananas from Ports of America in Freeport near the Gulf of Mexico. But it turns out the donation was a greater gift than either organization could have imagined, containing an additional 540 packages of cocaine, valued at nearly $18 million. "Sometimes, life gives you lemons. Sometimes, it gives you bananas," the TDCJ post joked. According to the post, the discovery was made by two of its sergeants after they noticed "something not quite right" with the boxes after they were unloaded. Once they started pulling apart these suspicious boxes, they discovered a white powdery substance and notified port authorities. Sure enough, when life handed them bananas, it was actually a shit ton of cocaine. Not many other details are known about this bizarre turn of events. But the TDCJ assured its followers that the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Customs, and Border Protection were now investigating into the matter. I guess we'll have to wait for the Season 6 of Breaking Bad that's never happening to fully understand the plot twist of sending a massive cache of illegal drugs to a literal prison.

In a new statement, Yale Law School professors Amy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld are denying claims that they ever advised female students to dress in an “outgoing” way when interviewing for law clerkships in Brett Kavanaugh’s office. Last week, news broke that Chua, who has endorsed Kavanaugh’s supreme court nomination, describing him as a “mentor to women,” revealed to a group of law students that it was “not an accident” that all of Kavanaugh’s female law clerks “looked like models.” This observation was reportedly corroborated by husband and fellow Yale Law School professor Rubenfeld, who allegedly told a student that Kavanaugh “hires women with a certain look.” Now, in a letter sent to Yale Law School faculty, staff, and students, Rubenfeld, on behalf of Chua and himself, is denying the comments and their connotations.
