The number 1 trend on twitter in the US right now is #RIPpac which was Justin Bieber's hamster. If you were wondering.—

So, which makes you more sad? Is it the news that Justin Bieber’s pet hamster has died, or the fact that a dead rodent is the number one trending topic on Twitter in the United States?
To be honest, we don’t even know if PAC is actually dead. If so, old age seems to have been the culprit.
Perhaps it’s just the shock, but the fact that a hamster’s passing has drawn so much attention seems to have inspired some self-awareness.
