  • Yeah, hi, I'm Karl is a welcome to our show for Thursday, November 5th votes are still being counted from the 2020 U.

  • S.

  • Presidential election.

  • The face off between Republican incumbent President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden left several states too close to call, and as of Wednesday evening, neither candidate had clinched that magic number of 270 electoral votes to be declared the winner.

  • When we produced this show, CNN had not projected a winner for six states Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

  • Without those predictions, it appeared that Democratic challenger Biden had clinched 254 electoral votes, while Republican incumbent Trump had clinched 213 electoral votes.

  • But these numbers were subject to change as vote counting continued and results came in.

  • As far as the makeup of the next Congress goes, analysts said Democrats were likely to remain in control of the House of Representatives while it looked like Republicans would remain in control of the Senate.

  • But again that information is not final.

  • There were still a number of significant calls to be made.

  • Part of the reason for the delay is the coronavirus pandemic, one of the major issues of the election.

  • Out of concerns about crowded polling places on election day, many people chose to vote early or mail in their ballots.

  • Researchers estimated that more than 100 million Americans voted early this year.

  • Contrast that with the 46 million who voted early in 2016.

  • The Trump campaign announced yesterday that it was launching legal challenges to vote counts in Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania, as well as requesting a recount in Wisconsin.

  • Thes were strongly contested battleground states this year, so that could delay final results as well.

  • Modern elections have seen real time projections of the winners, sometimes within hours of nationwide polls closing.

  • But the U.

  • S Constitution does not say that winners must be declared on election night throughout the 18 hundreds.

  • It would take days and sometimes weeks for a winner to be announced.

  • But people in the United States and abroad want to know what to expect politically come 2021 you can get the latest results updated day and night at CNN dot com.

  • 12th trivia.

  • What is 16 Psyche?

  • Is it a grunge band?

  • A game show a Pavlovian theory or an asteroid.

  • It's a bird.

  • It's a plane.

  • It's an asteroid that was discovered in 18 52 and named for a figure in Greek mythology.

  • 10,000 quadrillion dollars.

  • Now that I have your attention, we're talking about the possible estimated hypothetical value of an asteroid.

  • But coral, you may be thinking, It's a rock.

  • You're right.

  • A rock named Asteroid 16 Psyche.

  • That's about the length of Massachusetts scientists have been studying it through pictures gathered by the Hubble Space Telescope, and they published new findings in the Planetary Science Journal.

  • They don't know exactly what it's made of, but they think that Asteroid 16 psyche could be iron and nickel.

  • If it is, they say, a piece of iron that big would be worth more than all the economies on Earth combined.

  • Okay, so let's go get it.

  • Well, not so fast.

  • I'm so low.

  • The asteroid is three times farther from the sun than we are.

  • NASA hopes to send a probe there in 2022.

  • Researchers hope it gathers some secrets of the universe.

  • Uh huh.

  • No.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • You play these spiders low frequency tones that are about the known frequencies of insect prey that they typically catch.

  • They'll actually spring up and strike at these at these tones, no mhm up next.

  • A tale of two towns or really one town with a whole lot of border.

  • Borrow hair talk and borrow Nestle are fitted together like too complicated puzzle pieces.

  • They're both surrounded by the Netherlands, but borrow hair talk is considered Belgian and part of Belgium.

  • Borroni Sow is considered Dutch and part of the Netherlands.

  • What's going on here?

  • Well, it's been going on since the 11 hundreds.

  • That's when one official who controlled the area went to another who lived nearby and asked for protection.

  • They made a deal in which they each control parts of the town.

  • It wasn't until 1995 for some reason, that the complex borders were drawn and they still exist 25 years later.

  • Welcome to ball hair talk in Belgium.

  • No welcome to borrow in the south, in the Netherlands, Belgium, Belgium.

  • Okay, everyone, please calm down.

  • It's both welcome to the town with one of the most intricate borders in the whole world.

  • Borrow is a quiet, small town with not much going on until you look at these crosses.

  • Yeah, that's an international border.

  • And so is that, and so is that Borrow is home to a living border puzzle instead of one border crossing.

  • There are dozens of them, and that's because the town consists of 30 enclaves.

  • There are 22 pieces of Belgium surrounded by the Netherlands and 10 Dutch areas in Belgium.

  • The border goes through houses, and this means that there are two of almost everything for a population off under 10,002 postal services to churches to bus companies.

  • There are even two mayo toppings at this chicken shop.

  • Yep, this one Dutch.

  • And this one's Belgium.

  • But the one who designed a sculpture in the Netherlands would have never envisioned this.

  • On Monday, a subway train broke through its barriers and landed on top of a whale tail sculpture.

  • The Onley person aboard the train was the driver, and he wasn't hurt.

  • But the architect of the sculpture says, if it weren't so strong and built at the height it was, the driver might not have survived the accident.

  • And now, when he tells of the tall tales, he's not telling tall tales.

  • He's got a whale of a tale to tell about the time he took the underground overground and wound up grounded to an undersea creature.

  • People might ask, Are you for Whale?

  • They might ask if he's feeling well, but he'll be able to say, Hey, it's no fluke up Carla Zeus.
