Another day, another dumb trend piece published in the otherwise fine newspaper The New York Times: apparently, movie theaters are being "reinvented" by hipsters in Williamsburg, the Brooklyn neighborhood which is on itself the epitome of all NYT trends. Thankfully, Hamilton Nolan is here to crush it.
The USAF has done a lot of borderline insane things in its time, but appropriating the legacy of MLK Jr. on MLK Day might take the Crazy Cake: the government now says King would be proud of our nuclear arsenal.
Meet a girl with the wrong iPhone case. She enjoys normal teen things like Starbucks, snowboarding, and hanging out with friends. She also doesn't know the difference between the Confederate Flag, universal symbol of bigotry, and the flag of the UK. And then she tweeted it.
We receive lots of moronic emails daily, but this description of the "Obama Basher"—an electronic disc you punch for whatever reason—is perhaps the bottom of the bucket. Oh, idiotic plastic thing, let us count the ways you're dumb.
So it's a lazy weekend afternoon. The videogames are beat, the girls are off elsewhere, and the internet is barren. What are two bored dudes to do, other than fill a balloon with some flammable substance and blow themselves up?
If you're going to try to get away with something as reprehensible as child porn, you should at least be discreet. But Virginian horror-being Ian Hartney is not. Hint: don't ask the computer repair shop where your kiddie porn is.

Most New Year's Eve texts are of the drunken "eyhehyyy happy nye yearrr!" variety—incoherent and maybe a little annoying. But they don't blow you apart, as happened to a would-be Russian suicide bomber. Those SMS triggers are risky!
If Todd Davis's face looks familiar, it's because it's plastered all over subway stops and billboards—right next to his social security number—on ads for the personal security company LifeLock. His lifelock? It's been picked 13 times.
I refuse to pay $160 for a 120GB Xbox 360 HDD. But I need one, as my 20GB model is filling up. So I decided to order a cheap one from a shady Hong Kong website. What a mistake.
I think the AP needs to hire an internet consultant. Because it's clearly run by people who have absolutely no idea how the internet works. How else can one explain their behavior?
News flash, guys: a 32-inch Digital Photo Frame is actually a really crappy HDTV with all the tuners and inputs pulled out of it. It is not a photo frame. Selling it as such is a way to use the products weaknesses as its selling point and to remove money from the wallets of the rich and stupid. Seriously, this thing…
Here's a video showing Buffy / Firefly creator Joss Whedon and Battlestar Galactica remaker Ronald D. Moore dumping half a million pencils into a box that's being sent to Hollywood fatcats to help illustrate the writer's strike. Here's an idea: let's cut down the entire forest and ship reams of blank white paper to…
Packer doesn't have the money to pay for an iPhone, and they might not let him in with a sponsor to buy one. Stupid, sweaty Packer!
