Desperate Radiohead Fans Make Offers For Tickets On Craigslist
Did you get Radiohead tickets for one of their two surprise shows this week in New York? Most fans didn't, forcing them onto Craigslist to made ridiculous offers. Now if I told you I had an extra ticket, how much of your dignity would you be willing to give me for it?
Christopher Walken Look-Alike Arrested In Attempted Abduction
Rider University and The College of New Jersey safety officials have warned students of a suspect who was arrested for an alleged attempted abduction of a girl and is now free on bail.

Map Of World's Gravity
Basically, Earth is just a lumpy potato. These fascinating graphics show the areas of the world that have the strongest (shown in yellow) and weakest (shown in blue) pulls.

Thom Yorke As A Paperboy
Thom Yorke was seen handing out copies of Radiohead-produced newspaper The Universal Sigh outside of Rough Trade Records in London. A sad attempt to bring hope to a dying industry?

They're like retirement communities from hell.

No superpowers acquired by a radioactive spider bite. No mutant genes. Nothing. But check out this artwork. The resemblance is uncanny, no? (Via Comic Alliance)
Eating Sushi Off Of Women
Nyotaimori, also known as body sushi, is the practice of serving sushi on a nude woman. It's been banned in China, though I don't understand why because serving raw meat on a warm surface sounds like a totally healthy, nonbacterial-attracting thing to do. Tough luck, China. These looks like some awesome spreads.
