Wine aficionados everywhere are mourning the loss of several thousand gallons of Italian bubbly.

A fermentation tank at an Italian winery exploded, sending 30,000 liters (almost 8,000 gallons) of prosecco overflowing and pooling onto the pavement several stories below.

The L'enoteca Zanardo Giussano winery – located in Conegliano in the province of Treviso - filmed and shared a video of the huge tanks endlessly spilling their precious resource on their Facebook page.


The winery captioned the video with: "Conegliano: too much must in the silos, 30 thousand litres of Prosecco spill over!!"

Britain is reportedly the world's largest consumer of prosecco, according to the Daily Mail, but many passionate wine lovers had plenty to express about their heartbreaking loss.







Many GIFs flooded Twitter conveying grief over the alcoholic tragedy.





People wanted to get their last drink in.


One big question remained.


The Daily Mail was unable to confirm whether one of the winery staff members possibly overfilled the tank or if a crack developed in the lid causing the eruption.

But fear not, wine lovers. Wineries in Veneto have experienced one of the best harvests this season, so all is not completely lost.

Over 600 million bottles are expected to be produced this year. We can drink to that.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
