    This is the picture taken and tweeted by Twitter user dogboner (I hate those things). It's a shot of Neil DeGrasse Tyson using his laptop on a New York subway. Dogboner thought it would be funny to pretend he doesn't know who Neil DeGrasse Tyson is (links to a whole explanati... / Continue →

    Because if children are our hope for the future, then that future is hopeless, some little nobgoblin called a SWAT team on some other kid that killed him playing Call of Duty multiplayer. *tightening bolt on rocketship* My God I need to get off this planet. Even if I explode... / Continue →

    Seen here being modeled by a group of women that look like they're ready to kill (and I suspect at least the two on the left already have), the Star Wars dresses designed by fashion house Rodarte prepare to be walked down the runway during New York Fashion Week. You know, I th... / Continue →

    These are a handful of giant dinosaur skeletons carved entirely from pumpkins. Apparently they were all on display at The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in New York in recent years. They do a dinosaur section every year though, so this year they have even more. Me? I carved a ... / Continue →

    This is the human-sized hamster wheel available FOR FREE on Craigslist in Brooklyn, NY from ridiculously named Sandra Z. Zzz, who either changed his name because he fancies himself an artist, has cruel parents, or whose name is actually Dick Tent. Honestly, what do you think ... / Continue →

    Seen here eyeballing two hunks, Galdalf the Grey demonstrates his 'You Shall Not Pass' spell on the Bow Bridge in Central Park. SPOILER: Everybody passes. One dude even casts a Harry Potter spell on him as he goes by. If there had been an actual Balrog on one end of that bri... / Continue →

    Because this is the sad world we live in, New York has begun repurposing 91 of the state's Park-N-Ride lots and rest stops to include "text stop" signs so motorists know they're a safe place to pull over and text instead of doing it while driving. Of course, if you actually ne... / Continue →

    Listen: you just have to watch his thing to believe it. It starts off kind of slow though, so skip to around 1:08 for it to really get going. They do all sorts of crazy tricks like flips, rail-slides, swinging the pogo stick around over their heads mid-jump -- all kinds of cr... / Continue →

    Note: Very worthwhile higher-res version HERE in case you were hopping to spot a nude sunbather in the park. This is a 3-D composite shot of New York's Central Park and the surrounding buildings stitched together by photographer Sergey Semonov using a bunch of panoramic pictur... / Continue →

    This is a NYC loft apartment for sale in Chelsea that's going for $1,750,000 BUT ALREADY COMES PRE STEAMPUNK DECORATED. Because that's a big selling point. Also: secret passageways and hidden rooms. I'm watching you undress through the eyes of a painting! The focal point of... / Continue →

    Now that -- that's my kinda English. Apparently similar systems already exist in Atlanta and Washington, but I've never heard about them SO IT'S NEWS TO ME. Also, that you're not allowed to park on the sidewalk just because you're out of quarters. I call bullshit! Also, tho... / Continue →

    Playground?! That's a bathtub if I've ever seen one! Brought to light by the recent story of a woman who felt uncomfortable after discovering the old man next to her was watching a "threesome" (complete with speaker audio -- no headphones for this geezer!) at a computer termi... / Continue →

    This is a Castle Grayskull igloo built in Brooklyn, NY by artist Kilroy III and some of his friends. As you can see, it's pretty f***ing awesome. Well, provided you can get past how it looks like it was designed to fit 400 of Frosty's wieners in its mouth. Other than that th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a manhole in New York City shooting sparks and flames like the Ninja Turtles decided their swords and sticks were too oldschool and upgraded to flamethrowers and lightning-launchers. It sounds like somebody popping popcorn though, so I wouldn't be surprised ... / Continue →

    So iPhones aren't cool, got it. But how do you feel about a guy that keeps a Blackberry between his buttcheeks so the government can't monitor his calls? Because I know a guy. Personally. Me, I'm talking about me. Also, if I told you I'm a L337 Starcrafter can I get the bi... / Continue →

    This is a video of Improv Everywhere's rendition of the the opening scene from A New Hope on the #6 train in New York. It's pretty cute, despite the glaring lack of golden bikini. For our latest mission, we staged a reenactment of the first Princess Leia / Darth Vader scene f... / Continue →

    Mario and Luigi, best known for plunging shitters and trying to save the Princess from the evil clutches of Bowser, have turned to a life of crime. Specifically, robbing cab drivers. What's the Mushroom Kingdom coming to?! At around 4 a.m. on November 1, presumably following... / Continue →

    I say almost because there's no such thing as a cute robot. They're all just disgusting machines, only interested in the demise of the human race and reproducing like rabbits with their rusty metal phalli. But still, Tweenbots are the closest a robot has ever come to almost b... / Continue →

    Nope, not April Fools either. Real boxes of "hand-picked" trash from the streets of New York City are available for $50 from greedy garbage tycoon Justin Gignac. You can also get limited edition boxes from Yankee Stadium or New Year's Eve for $100. I sell garbage. I scou... / Continue →

    Well New York Comic Con took place this last weekend and, surprisingly, a bunch of people showed up dressed as their favorite characters. Apparently it's some new phenomenon called cosplay. I have no idea, but I like it. I posted a bunch of my favorites after the jump (prett... / Continue →
