Burgers really are everywhere. A new study finds that raindrops are shaped like hamburger buns, not tears as previously thought:

“The teardrop shape of a raindrop has been accepted as fact for generations and has even inspired songwriters over the years from Dee Clark to James Blunt.

But the American space agency has discovered that in reality raindrops are shaped rather like the rather more prosaic top of a hamburger bun, round at the top and flat at the bottom.”
