Back in May, a man set a record for the most expensive Starbucks drink ever when he worked with baristas to concoct a $54 frozen drink made from 60 shots of espresso and other ingredients. That record has been broken by a woman in Pembroke Pines, Florida identified as Sameera. After getting permission from the store and alerting media outlets, Sameera and her support team showed up and created a $61 Sexagintuple Frap, which was prepared in a jug. Perhaps the best part of all was that after Sameera scanned her rewards card it brought the total down to $57.75. Then, after scanning her coupon for a free drink it was, well, free. For their part, Starbucks says they don't encourage these sorts of excessive customizations and it's against their policy to serve beverages larger than Trenta, which is 31 oz.

Arizona Rep. Adam Kwasman attended a protest in the city of Oracle over the expected arrival of dozens of migrant children at a shelter. Rep. Kwasman tweeted from the scene, "Bus coming in. This is not compassion. This is the abrogation of the rule of law" and included a photo of a school bus. Kwasman also said, "I was actually able to see some of the children in the buses. The fear on their faces...This is not compassion." It turned out that the children on the bus weren't migrants, but local students who had no fear on their faces since they were heading to the YMCA's Triangle Y Camp. A local TV reporter who was at the protest scene says he saw the children laughing and taking pictures of the media. When Kwasman was informed of this he deleted the tweet and back-pedaled on his earlier account.
