    This is a visual comparison created by Redditor movielover278 of the largest known class of Star Destroyer compared to the size of Manhattan. For reference, Manhattan is 13.4 miles (21.6 km) long and 2.3 miles (3.7 km) at its widest. So that is a pretty big ship. You think i... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to lick your screen. This is the quadruple rainbow photographed by Amanda Curtis from the Long Island Rail Road station in Glen Cove, N.Y. Thanks God Double Rainbow guy wasn't there or his head would have f***ing exploded. If I was ... / Continue →

    Because Florida can't have all the fun, a Long Island man is being treated for first and second degree burns after blowing up his rental car trying to kill alleged bed bugs. Two other vehicles were also destroyed in the fire. Scott Kemery apparently doused the interior of the... / Continue →

    This is a video documenting very realistic Peter Griffin cosplayer Robert Franzese's trip to New York Comic Con 2014. You may remember Robert from his stand-up performance at the Allentown Comic Con earlier this year. He's about as spot-on a Peter Griffin as you could ask for... / Continue →

    This is the entirely family friendly P0rnhub billboard that the company had up in Time Square for almost a full 24 hours before the DoubleTree Hotel (the building behind the billboard) had it taken down. Presumably because they want you to spend $16 apiece renting p0rnos in yo... / Continue →

    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 →
