From Burger King's new menu item to a supersonic flight from NYC to Tokyo, THV's Tom Brannon catches you up on some Weird But True headlines.
Burger King is adding a rather interesting new menu item for the holiday season -- a pumpkin burger!
The pumpkin burger is made of slices of kabocha, a Japanese squash that's a close cousin to the pumpkin.
Burger King is selling the sandwiches with two slices or a 'bomb pumpkin' version with 10 slices. It also comes with bacon, lettuce, and a nut sauce.
Unfortunately the pumpkin burger is only being sold in Japan.
And speaking of Japan, your next trip to Tokyo could only take 90 minutes!
A private rocket company wants to start offering round-trip flights from New York to Japan on their supersonic aircraft.
This isn't your usual Delta or Southwest plane thoug. The Lynx will actually fly outside the atmosphere for a portion of its journey at 62 miles above Earth.
Test flights will start next year and the ticket price is just a mere $95,000 for round trip.
And in other weird but true news, seven scientists will spend six years in prison for failing to warn people about an earthquake.
Three years after an earthquake killed more than 300 people in Italy, six seismologists and a former government official have been found guilty of underestimating the risks.
They've each been sentenced to six years in prison for manslaughter.
The scientific community says the verdicts are ridiculous because it's nearly impossible to predict earthquakes.
