Dubai has unveiled plans for the world's first indoor, climate-controlled neighborhood—a 450-hectare city area with a retractable glass roof and the world's largest shopping center. This sounds to me like the hell on earth but I better get used to it: Every major city will probably be like this by the end of the…
The city of Wolfsburg—in Germany—is currently hosting the worst Star Wars exhibition ever. Everything looks wrong and creepy. From the horrible lighting and staging to the actual objects.

Chilean newspaper Publimetro (in Spanish) reports on the terrible accident suffered by 30-year-old José Vergara: A malfunctioning elevator launched him across an entire building and into the roof, going through 34 stories in just 15 seconds.

I love architecture from the future, but this new apartment tower by Porsche Design—equipped with car elevators that allow owners to park their Bentleys and Bugattis right next to their living rooms—doesn't come from the future. It's just a gimmicky cylinder.
The situation in Sumatra is getting worse: Mount Sinabung erupted eight times in just a few hours on Sunday.

Like a terrible winter, the gold iPhone is coming. Multiple sources have confirmed that Apple's next toy will be available in gold. Not real gold, but fake gold-colored aluminum. They will look like 1980s cigarette cases! Would you buy one of these garish things?
A bicycle. An old jailbroken iPhone. Maybe used furniture. Some free dirt. Those are the type of things you expect to buy off Craigslist. You definitely don't expect a Mom to offer up her three-year-old son on the seedy but useful classifieds website. But that's just what Stephanie Redus did. She used Craiglist to…
Dear US Government, please, for the love of all that is good and sacred and covered with bolognese sauce, please drop your case against Kim Dotcom. Let him get back to his naff life of food and lewd. Perhaps that way he would stop releasing songs of mass destruction like his new single: Mr. President. Just listen to…
Spirit Airlines introduced the ludicrous concept of charging you for carry-on luggage two years ago. Apparently that wasn't terrible enough because now the airline says it wants to charge more than twice as much if you haven't paid for your bag when you get to the gate. Jerks.
We all love Kickstarter. We all also hate Kickstarter. Especially when it's for your friend's band. They're all the frigging same. "So stoked to be working with this person you've never heard of on this song that you don't like!"
Christmas! A cheerful time, right? The spirit, the decorations, the gift giving, the time off, it's supposed to be happy! Not for these horrible people.

We love booze, but lines must be drawn. Today, we're looking at booze that is just plain wrong. It's a freakin' horror show.
