Spectacular supercell caught on video in Wyoming

Storm chasers caught an amazing timelapse video Sunday in Wyoming of a thunderstorm taking shape.

The storm-chasing group Basehunters, originally based in Oklahoma, spotted the storm forming between Wright and Newcastle. The video has since been making the rounds on social media.

In short, supercells are responsible for "for nearly all of the significant tornadoes produced in the U.S. And for most of the hailstones larger than golf ball size."

They are the largest, strongest and longest-lasting thunderstorms and are most common on the Great Plains.

McDonald's new mascot is a box with teeth

McDonald's unveiled a new mascot Monday called "Happy," and so far, the reactions have been anything but.

Happy is an animated Happy Meal box with nice pair of chompers on the front and cartoon arms and legs. The character has been around overseas since 2009, but this is the first time Happy is being introduced stateside.

The fast-food company wants to position happy as a healthier spokesperson for kids to promote "improved nutrition" choice.

Since debuting on Twitter in an official McDonald's post, Happy has received lots of feedback. The responses include, "I think I'm going to have nightmares" and "Why is he in pain?"

McDonald's hopes the character gets a friendlier reaction from children.

Hard to swallow: World's first drinkable sunscreen?

A company claims to have developed a drinkable sunscreen that provides protection comparable to an SPF 30 lotion.

Osmosis Skincare's UV Neutralizer Harmonized Water comes in "Tan Enhancing and No Tan Enhancing." It's $30 for a 3.38 ounce bottle.

It's instructed to take two milliliters every four hours with about two ounces of water. The company claims it provides three hours of coverage.

While the company notes on its website that the Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated the claims, Dr. Ben Johnson, who is the founder but not a dermatologist, told HuffPost that his company tested the stuff.

There are several positive testimonials on the company website, but some experts are skeptical.

Selfie, Catfish, Hashtag: New dictionary words added

"Selfie," "tweep" and "turducken" are among more than 150 new words and definitions added to the 2014 updated Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.

The additions to the U.S. dictionary reflect the growing influence of technology and social networking, the company said Monday.

"Catfish" takes on an added definition referring to a person who sets up a false social networking profile for deceptive purposes. Turducken means "a boneless chicken stuffed into a boneless duck stuffed into a boneless turkey."
