OMFG: Giant Rats Are Taking Over The Planet

Important announcement: I've just hopped out of my DeLorean after a disastrous visit to the future and thought I should tell you what I saw there.

Girl Eats Her Own Body Weight in Ketchup EVERY Year

When 12-year-old Sammy Cohen Eckstein was tragically killed three months ago by a driver in Park Slope, his family and friends put up a memorial to honor him.

Your Next Boyfriend: The Guy Who Gets Turned On By Farts

Conventional wisdom (or, as the Internet Kids call it, Rule 34) suggests that for everything innocent and nonsexual that exists, there is a porn version of that thing. Everything. The Flintstones, Teletubbies, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. Everything. I'd like to suggest a corollary to that rule: everything that exists… » 7/30/13 5:30pm 7/30/13 5:30pm
