5. Summoning A Mexican Demon
In news that defy common sense, reason and logic, teenagers everywhere are summoning a Mexican demon with the help of pencils in the Charlie Charlie challenge. What in the hell is the Charlie Charlie challenge? Just draw a grid on a piece of paper with “yes” and “no” in the boxes, balance one pencil on top of the other to form a cross then ask said Mexican demon questions along the line of “Charlie Charlie can we play?” or “Charlie Charlie do I have irritable bowel disorder?” Then watch as the pencil moves to a grid, then you scream and go “omg demons!” and film yourself for virality.
The people doing this challenge have probably never heard of GRAVITY. Stay in school, kids. Also, what kind of Mexican demon is named Charlie?

1. Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte Big Week

From admitting and later backtracking on his links to the Davao Death Squad, engaging in a word war with Justice Secretary Leila De Lima, an alleged campaign ad leak, and being teary-eyed for once. The big question still remains: will he run or higher office in 2016?
