This Awful Netflix Tattoo Comes With a Free Year of Service and…

You think you love Netflix? You don't, at least not compared to @TheRealMyron. He loves it so much he had (a horrendous interpretation of) its logo tattooed onto his arm. And as a reward for his fanboyism, he got a comparatively impermanent year of free Netflix. » 3/08/13 2:20pm 3/08/13 2:20pm

The Most Tragic Way to Celebrate an Earthquake

Earlier this week, heroic Brooklynite Jonathan Berg managed to accomplish something that was simultaneously accomplished by a mere 2.5 million other Brooklynites: not get killed by a weak-sauce earthquake.

Woman Gets Massive Tattoo of All Her Facebook Friends' Faces

The latest edition of absurd Facebook-related tattoos: This lady (?) got a tattoo of her 192 Facebook friends' faces on her arm. Ugh.
