Today is the fiftieth anniversary of the Slurpee at 7-11, among other stories, such as the Pokemon GO craze, Taylor Swift’s love life, Ghostbusters, The Home Run Derby, more shootings, and more #BlackLivesMatter drama. It’s a free Slurpee for everyone on the convenience store’s birthday, and a free cupcake is even on the side. This is a tradition that has been going on for at least 5 years now, starting back in 2011 I believe. Millions of people with nothing else to do line up to greedily raid the slush fountain and walk out like perpetual shoplifters.
