From Bob Dylan to Lorde, you may just find out that you've been loudly and proudly belting the wrong lyrics to these tunes. At least you're not alone, because these misheard lyrics are so common, they've become a joke in and of themselves. Blame it on the singers' mumbling delivery or the song's distracting acoustics — but even with the best headphones, people tend to mess up the lyrics to some pretty famous hits.

Five fossil footprints left in volcanic ash 3.66 million years ago in Tanzania are giving scientists new insight on a landmark in human evolution – upright walking – while showing that its origins are more complicated than previously known. Researchers said on Wednesday a thorough new examination of the tracks, nearly half a century after their initial discovery, has shown that they were made not by a bear, as once believed, but by a hominin – in other words, a species in the human lineage – and possibly a previously unknown one. Bipedalism – walking on two feet – is a hallmark of humankind, but scientists are still putting together the puzzle pieces on how and when it began.
AccuWeather meteorologists say a shift in the storm track across the northwestern United States will allow storms to trek farther south and target areas that largely missed out on the barrage of drenching, warm storms that produced disastrous flooding in parts of the region and British Columbia, Canada, last month. This shift in the stormy pattern will also bring the return of colder air which will allow a significant amount of snow to reach the mountains with snowflakes possible at lower elevat

U.S. snow depth on December 2, shown each year from 2003 to 2021. (NWS) It's December, for those of you who don't own calendars. But our calendarless neighbors can be excused for thinking it may be November or even October based on the current color of their grass. Americans from the Pacific to the Atlantic are putting up Christmas lights and lighting menorah candles without the usual wintry scene-setter – wintry, white, blanketing snow. So where's it at? Well, almost nowhere in the United State
The Cumbre Vieja volcano has dealt up to $800 million in damages to La Palma, a resort island in the Canary Islands, and destroyed thousands of homes.
The fire was first reported Tuesday in neighboring Judith Basin County and spread into Fergus County.
With a growing number of places across the United States getting their first snowflakes of the season, it's once again that time of year to break out the hot chocolate and look ahead at the chances of a white Christmas across the contiguous U.S. A climate pattern well-known for bringing precipitation to the northern tier of the country may tip the scales on which areas get a white Christmas or just a handful of flurries — if that — this year. To forecast what kind of weather the different regi
A fresh river of lava from the volcano on Spain’s La Palma island threatened Wednesday to engulf a parish church that has so far survived the eruption that shows no signs of relenting after 10 weeks. The nearest lava flow to the Los Llanos de Aridane church has slowed down since it started over the weekend but it is still only 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) away. Molten rock from the Sept. 19 eruption on La Palma, part of Spain's Canary Islands archipelago, has consumed over 1,500 buildings and covered over 1,130 hectares (2,800 acres) including banana farms, the island's main source of revenue along with tourism.
