This Week in CRNews: Chinese New Year 2012 Edition

Hot news, big features, and stories you may have missed!

The last time I did the recap it was the week of plain New Year's and that was a thing. Now it's the week of Chinese New Year's—this is also a thing! In fact, it is the handy summary of what happened on CRNews this week! Does a New Year spontaneously occur every time Joseph Luster goes off the grid? 

 

You may notice it's a little different than usual because I put the TOP videos in the TOP videos section. Let us know if you feel this is utter chaos or not in the comments...annnnnd enjoy catching on up all the hottest CRNews stories of the week:
