Today the New York Times published an entertaining investigation into the history and secrets of glitter.

And although reporter Caity Weaver tried to visit each of these companies, only one — grudgingly — allowed her inside.

The company (Glitterex) was secretive about its numbers, but it did reveal that the most popular glitter color “by far” is silver.

(And, to remove glitter, the company’s CEO suggests using soap and water — or fabric softener sheets, “to combat the plastic’s static cling.”).

The story’s most tantalizing detail, however, is that one of the glitter industry’s biggest clients doesn’t want the public to know that it’s using glitter in the first place.

When I asked Ms. Dyer if she could tell me which industry served as Glitterex’s biggest market, her answer was instant: “No, I absolutely know that I can’t.”.

KC: Maybe the government is using glitter to build like a big mirror, and behind the mirror are all the UFOs. »

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's one of up to 25 giant surveillance balloons currently floating over the Midwest and spying on everything in their path.

The test, which the Guardian reports began in July and runs through September, involves high-altitude balloons floating at heights of up to 65,000 feet.

Just don't do anything that could be misconstrued as suspicious — after all, the balloons are watching. »
