Things We Saw Today: How to Order Butterbeer at Starbucks
Starbucks now offers two “secret” Harry Potter drinks: the Butterbeer Latte and the Butterbeer Frappuccino. And as with most “secret” drinks, you just have to know how to order them.
Unfortunately, the act of ordering these is not exactly … magical. No, there are no spells. No code words. No solemnly swearing you are up to no good. Instead, you order a Butterbeer Latte by asking for a Latte “with whole milk, caramel syrup, toffee nut syrup, and cinnamon dolce syrup.” And for the Butterbeer Frappuccino, you order a Crème Frappuccino “with caramel and toffee nut syrups, with caramel drizzle over the top.”
In short, the magic words are “I’m high-maintenance.” (via NBC Chicago)

It’s about the sheriff and the people, chasing the ghost. That’s it…The lead role isn’t Spawn, the lead role is a cop, like Sheriff Brody from Jaws.” (via io9)

Johnson’s family has started a GoFundMe campaign to help her rebuild. (via The Slot)
