Guys, how could you? Based on the sheer number of photographs, you weren't even trying to hide your love.
CollegeHumor has a very un-CollegeHumor-y video about how extremely religious people are the same as nerds because nerds are essentially people who are extremely into stuff.
The many coffins of the DOW. When the economy gives its dying gasp or receives the kiss of life, it'll be in these noisy halls.
In a remarkable rebound after yesterday's Downgrademageddon, the Dow Jones gained 430 points today and finished above the 11,000 benchmark. After the Federal Reserve announced they would keep interest rates unchanged, the markets initially shriveled, then ate an invincibility star and went hog wild.
Al Gore completely lost it at the Aspen Institute last week and unloaded on climate change skeptics in a righteous, flame-throwing rant. Except for Marie Curie's infamous stand up routine "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Stage In Oslo" (that never happened), how often do you get to hear a Nobel Prize Winner repeatedly scream "bulls**t"?
Sixty-six years ago today, at 11:02 am local time, the world changed forever. The U.S. military dropped an atomic bomb the equivalent of 22,000 tons of TNT on Nagasaki, Japan...three days after dropping a slightly smaller nuke onto Hiroshima.

Patton Oswalt continues to be in awesome 5 Second FIlms. I think I like this one better than Crabwalkin'.
Is that Li'l Sebastian? Get Li'l Sebastian out of there! Update: Shopped! I was so worried about my favorite miniature horse that I forgot to use my CSI "Enhance!" technology to analyze it.
Two French performance artists, Marion Laval-Jeantet and Benoît Mangin, put together a piece called "Que le cheval vive en moi" (May the horse live in me). The two have "been exploring trans-species relationships and the questioning of scientific methods and tools for 20 years now." Because why not? Awesome. Photos, video, and more info inside.
That's a lot of red. How exciting.
This is the stuff dreams are made of. Best friends forever!!
Real Madrid is one of the best soccer sides in the world. But could they beat 109 kids? Probably, but how awesome an idea is this? It's like zombie soccer.
