Happy Wednesday! Like a glass of day old milk being half full! Here's what's happening on the interweb:

1. Vanity Fair Exclusive: Monica Lewinsky Writes About Her Affair with President Clinton

Monica Lewinsky told Vanity Fair in an exclusive interview about her affair with President Clinton, “It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress," which made all who read it shudder at the horrible memory of the time when were led to believe berets were in style.

2. Thailand Court Ousts Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra

A Thai court has ordered Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and several cabinet ministers to step down. The Constitutional Court ruled that Ms Yingluck acted illegally when she transferred her national security head. The ruling follows months of political deadlock. Anti-government protesters have been trying to oust Ms Yingluck since November 2013.

I know that's almost 6 whole months, but you know how long Thais take to deliver.

3. Coke, Pepsi Dropping Controversial 'BVO' From All Drinks

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo said Monday they're working to remove a controversial ingredient, BVO, from all their drinks, including Mountain Dew, Fanta and Powerade.

That leaves only 173,845 ingredients in these drinks that will probably contribute to you dying earlier than you might have had you not enjoyed their refreshing flavor.

4. WATCH: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time recreated using Unreal Engine 4

The Time Temple from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been recreated using the Unreal Engine 4. Industry animator Michael Eurek recreated the Time Temple after a friend suggested he rebuild a classic gaming environment using modern tools.

This "friend" was mysteriously unnamed and never seemed to be around when others saw Michael out, but he swears it's just a really weird coincidence.
