Shaun White, back on top

On Monday night (or Tuesday morning, depending on where you were in the world), Chloe Kim became America's snowboarding god with her jaw-dropping gold medal win in the women's halfpipe. Well, 24 hours later, it was the turn of Shaun White, the OG, to snatch the spotlight back—and boy did he. Thanks to a stunning pair of 1440s back to back on his third and final run, White stole first place from Japan's Ayumu Hirano for the third gold of his Olympic career. But you're not here for me blabbing; you're here for the sweet sweet highlights.

The U.S. is now four-for-four in snowboard golds at this year's Games, as White joins Kim, Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson atop the podium. Shouts to America.

The robots won't end us yet

Yesterday, we learned that there are now dog-like robots capable of opening doors, and we feared for the future. Today, we learned that, while the metal ones will still come for us in the night, we'll at least still kick their asses when it comes to skiing.

Being an Olympian seems pretty rad

Why won't celebrity chefs come and make me dessert? [holds finger to earpiece] Oh, because I've never won a gold medal? Ah, I see.
