” The 2014 season of the 24 Hours of LeMons was the best one yet, with 20 races all over the country, the world-record largest endurance road race in history (the Guinness folks just declared it as the official record holder), floods, ice, pitch darkness, and—of course—the greatest crop of new-to-the-series race cars we could ever hope to see. 2013 had some great machinery, as did 2012 and 2011, but nothing like what we saw during the last 12 months. Here we go, the new cars (or cars modified so heavily that they might as well have been new) from the 2014 season!”
” You can’t go wrong with British sports cars in LeMons—everybody knows that—and so it was something of a mystery that we saw zero Jensen-Healeys during the first eight years of the series. You can get an ugly example for cheap and the “Torqueless Wonder” Lotus 907 engine seems well-suited for screaming around a road course, so we knew it was just a matter of time before some team took the plunge. That team was Bangers N Mash, which showed up to the Return of the LeMonites race at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah with this car.”

” It’s spring in New York City, and that means the city’s most topless literary club is back in action. Members of the The Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society bared their breasts in Central Park on Friday, and then again Saturday while lounging on the rooftop sundeck of a certain “nude-friendly, gay-friendly, everything-friendly boutique hotel.”
The reading material included, of course, some pulp fiction titles like “Hunt Through The Cradle of Fear,” “Borderline,” as well as “Abraham Lincoln, Presidential Fu*k Machine,” and, er, “Moby Dick.”
For the uninitiated, OCETPFAS formed a few years ago. It’s the group’s mission to “make reading sexy,” as well as remind New Yorkers that toplessness is very legal in New York City.
Take a NSFW scroll below. And if you’re interested in joining the OCETPFAS, find out where the group meets next here or follow them on Twitter.”

” Throughout history, a lot have things have changed in our society. Groups of people have gained rights and, in general, we are more open minded and progressive.
There was a time, however, when advertisements were a little more aggressive than they are today. Modern advertisements still pressure men and women to look a certain way, but at least they try not to use the word “chubby.” Some of these may be … slightly offensive.”

” For the past four years, the brilliantly twisted geniuses at a Canada-based attraction called Nightmares Fear Factory have been running an automatic camera that snaps pictures of spooked people at the perfect moment, a split second after a big scare in the pitch dark. Since it’s a flash, it catches their hysterical reactions.”

” There are certainly some frightening creatures out there. Did you know that more than 90% of life on earth lives in the water? Much of it is still to be discovered, but we wanted to share a few pictures with you of some of the creepiest under water lifeforms to have been discovered so far. Most of them are completely harmless, but still, just one look at some of them might be enough to give you a heart attack.”
” As frightening as this fish, the Fangtooth, appears, it is virtually harmless. It lives at depths greater than 16,000 feet below the surface, and due to the lack of light there, it is blind. It literally has to bump into its food to find it.”

” The principal of Saluda Trail Middle School in Rock Hill is defending the decision to let students hold military weapons during a Veterans Day program at the school last week.
A parent complained after pictures of two students holding weapons were posted on the eighth grade school blog.
In each picture a member of the military is next to the student.
The parent thought, that in light of recent school shootings, it was inappropriate.
Principal Brenda Campbell disagreed.
“Those guns are completely no ammo. They had been checked out by the military themselves, who brought them into our school,” Campbell said.”
Kudos to Principal Campbell for standing her ground .

” On Thursday night [Friday morning] at 12:45am EST. I was in my living room working on my computer when I heard multiple “pops” coming from outside. At that point, I had no idea that I was about to become an eye witness to the biggest news story in the country.
When I looked outside my window, I could clearly see two people (the Tsarnaev brothers) taking cover behind an SUV and engaging in gunfire. After witnessing shots being fired I promptly ran up the stairs to my 3rd floor bedroom to distance myself a little further away from the gunfire. As I ran into my room, overwhelmed by shock, adrenaline, and curiosity, I jumped onto my bed to stay below the windows but also have a clear view at the shooters and photograph the event. As soon as I was laying safely on my bed I started taking pictures with my iPhone 5 and captured the following images that documented the terrifying shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers, which then led to an overnight citywide manhunt.”
“Here it’s clear to see the brothers taking aim and firing on the officers. (Taken at 12:47:57AM)”
