Forbes just released their annual list of the most miserable cities in the U.S., and this year’s winner might come as a surprise: Miami, land of sunshine, palm trees, and white sand beaches. How did a city that once had a full song dedicated to it on “Big Willie Style” becoming the reigning metropolis of misery? Well, quite a few factors contributed to the decision: unemployment rates, violent crime, taxes, home prices, and commute times. And while the super-rich continue to party ’til the break of dawn, Miami’s working class struggles with serious issues such as a foreclosure crisis that has claimed 364,000 homes since 2008. Compelling evidence for sure, but it’s always hard to know how much stock to put into these kinds of lists. Any readers from Miami want to weigh in? [Forbes]

In case you were wondering what space tastes like when fermented with your favorite varietal, you’ll be eager to try Meterorito, a Cabernet Sauvignon infused with a piece of 4.5 billion-year-old meteor rock. Winemaker Ian Hutcheon procured the meteor, which is believed to have crashed into the desert in Chile 6,000 years ago, from an American collector. Hutcheon claims that the meteor makes the flavors “livelier” and “more potent.” When you sip a glass of this wine, you’ll be “drinking elements from the birth of the solar system,” he says. Yes, please. I’ll take a case. Is that a nose of Jupiter I detect on my palate, with a hint of Mars, and a base note of the Big Bang? [Oddity Central]

Meet Jemima Packington, a woman who divines the future using asparagus. The world’s only “Asparamancer” (as she calls herself), she casts the spears in the air and reads the shapes they form when they land. She been reading asparagus since she was a little girl and claims to have been making accurate predictions about such things as the royal family and politics. “It might sound silly to some people but my readings are very accurate. I have been doing readings using asparagus since I was eight years old. My great aunt read tea leaves and I have inherited her gift,” Jemima says. Sure, why not? If you can do it with tea leaves, you can do it with vegetables. I want to believe in her powers, really I do, but she predicts that Europe will not have a hard time with frost and snow, just a windy time. Last time I checked, Europe was going through a deep freeze. Alas, the asparagus spears have failed her this time.  But fret not, the Asparamancer will  have a chance to redeem herself when she appears at the British Asparagus Festival in April, where she’s bound to predict that all attendees will have strange smelling pee.
