'The Dark Knight Rises' Wedding

When newlyweds Rich and Nicole Walsh emerged from their nuptials in Pittsburgh, they received the greatest gift of all...a Batmobile parked across the street from the church. The filmmakers of The Dark Knight Rises were gracious enough to let the bride and groom get some photos on one of Batman's Tumblers. The sweetly nerdy moment was captured on video. Nothing from the Crate & Barrel registry will ever live up to this.

The Top 10 Party Schools In The U.S.

The Princeton Review has come out with their annual list of the Top 20 Party Schools in the United States. This list probably influences the decision of prospective university students more than we'd care to admit. Here are the Top 10 with school appropriate photos. 11 thru 20 only warrant an honorable mention.

In A Shocking Twist Fox News Is Upset Over President Obama's Ramadan Proclamation

Who would have seen this coming? Turns out both "Fox" and "his friends" were a little upset about the President's decision to make a Ramadan proclamation. I mean he may have talked about Easter in his radio address that week and held an egg roll on the White House lawn, but he didn't make a special proclamation! Who cares that he quoted Jesus Christ in said Ramadan proclamation?! Outrage! Outrage! Harumph!

The 15 Best Reddit AMAs

In case you haven't come across it, Reddit has a regular feature where people from all walks of life with an interesting story to tell are interviewed by the site's community. AMA stands for "Ask Me Anything," and pretty much anything goes. Here are 15 of the most fascinating AMAs from the last couple of years. Add your own in the comments if you have a favorite that I missed.

What Happens When Sports Stars Retire

Brazilian soccer legend, Ronaldo, may have been in tip-top shape during his glory days, but not anymore. Take a look at what the retired life has done to this soccer pro.

Default Averted, Everyone Still Pissed

President Obama signed the bill to raise the debt ceiling today, avoiding a potentially catastrophic blow to the United States economy. In the process, however, he had to sign off on a $2 trillion deficit reduction plan his own party thinks is too drastic and Republicans think isn't drastic enough. Politics is the great art of disappointment.

Jean Jackets Inspired By Pop Culture

There's no better way to express yourself than with fashion. Take a look at some of the coolest jean jackets inspired by pop culture. And why not customize your favorite jean jacket so that it truly tells the world who YOU ARE!

10 Things You Didn't Know About "Weird Science"

"Weird Science" was released on this day 26 years ago. To honor John Hughes's greatest achievement in sci-fi girl-creation software movies, we bring you this handy list of things you didn't know about "Weird Science."

Republican Congressman Likens President Obama To A "Tar Baby"

Whoops. Colorado Republican Doug Lamborn stepped in the briar patch last week when he used the phrase "tar baby" in association with President Obama. Rep. Lamborn has since personally written the President to apologize for his poor choice of words, with a spokesman saying he should have said "quagmire" instead of "tar baby." If you don't know why "tar baby" is offensive to African Americans, just do a quick Urban Dictionary search. If you dare.

New York City Construction Worker Sings Frank Sinatra

Although I like to think I can sing a mean Frank Sinatra myself, it's nothing compared to Gary, the 2nd Avenue New York construction worker. Forget "all the noise, traffic, and the impact of the 2nd Ave. subway and enjoy," as he croons the classic "Summer Wind."

Tree From "The Shawshank Redemption" Split In Half By Wind Storm

I wish I could tell you that tree fought the good fight, and the wind let it be. I wish I could tell you that. A violent wind storm in Mansfield, Ohio ripped asunder the tree where Andy hid the money for Red in 'The Shawshank Redemption' (with Ohio standing in for New England thanks to Hollywood voodoo). What's next? Is the mouse from 'Green Mile' going to get crushed by a meteor?

Selena Gomez' Awkward Britney Spears Tribute

The jail bait gyration ratio certainly has declined since 1999. During a recent concert, Gomez paid homage to Britney's prime but was clearly uncomfortable with sexing it up for her pre-teen audience. This awkward montage made me yearn for TRL of yore.

Game Of Thrones Special FX Revealed

By the Seven, those are some good effects. Warning: If you haven't seen the season finale of Game Of Thrones stop the video before 2:40 to avoid spoilers.

Flying Macbook Airs In Captivity

Any second now, someone will be forming PETT: People for the Ethical Treatment of Technology. False alarm people! They aren't sentient; just full of hot air.

Auto-Tuned Apartment

The ladies love auto-tune, right? Don't get mad dude, the apartment was only trying to play wingman.

The Married Lesbian Couple Who Saved 40 Teens From The Norway Shooter

Hege Dalen and Toril Hansen have rightly become national heroes in Norway after they rescued 40 fleeing teens from the massacre on Utoya Island. Using their boat, they made multiple trips into the waters around Utoya where Anders Breivik was murdering 69 people and ferried as many as they could to safety. Bullet holes later discovered in their boat indicate Breivik fired upon them. There's been some concern among the gay community that their story hasn't received the attention it should because they are a married lesbian couple. Let's see if we can't rectify that.

Woman With Fake Beard And Fake Bomb Robs Two Banks

A woman in Alabama has now robbed two banks while posing as a man. The first time, her costume was so convincing that both police and press at the time talked about a "man" who had committed the crime. She appears to have gotten sloppy as this time people were like "yo that's totally a chick with beard drawn on her face." Here's a still from the security cam. What do you think? Convincing?

A Pinball Machine Made Of People

This is an amazing animation for people who love pinball, animation, or both. And if you aren't such a person, what the hell is wrong with you?

I'm A Stupid Cat

'I have no idea how much the world sucks because I have no reference level.' Delivered in the form of a liberally swearing song: this is the new anthem for cats everywhere. It illustrates why cats' lives are so easy, while simultaneously shows why they're so great. I've already memorized all the lyrics!

Brazilian Ad Curses 'Damn Ponies'

Ponies need no translation to be awesome. However, here is a subtitled version of Nissan Brazil's "Pôneis malditos" ('Damn Ponies') commercial for context. Bronies, rejoice.

The Battle Of Dogs Vs. Cats

While cats and dogs may both have their own special talents, there are definite winners when it comes to smarts and skills. Parade recently made a definitive list in their July 31st issue. Take a look at which creature reigns supreme in each category.

Gabrielle Giffords Votes To Pass The Debt Bill In Surprise Return

No matter how you feel about the debt bill drama, at least everyone can agree that this moment was awesome. Making a surprise return to the House of Representatives, her first since being gravely wounded in the Tuscon shooting spree, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords drew thunderous applause from members of both parties and voted for the debt bill. By all accounts, she looked great and there wasn't a dry eye in the House. The bill passed 269-161.

Eco-Goats Will Do Your Yardwork

So, employing hordes of goats to do groundskeeping is the new thing. Even Google's doing it, so it must be cool. To commemorate this big occasion for the undervalued animal, here's some pictures of goats looking particularly satisfied.
