On Feb. 6th, Ashley Murray of Indiana arrived home with her son to discover a strange man in her apartment. At first, Murray thought she was being robbed. But then, she noticed that the interloper had cooked dinner, folded laundry and swept the floor. Imagine if all trespassers were this helpful!
Ever since the Grand National Bank of St. Louis, Missouri opened the first drive-up window teller (deposits only!) way back in 1930, drive-thrus have become a symbol of modern American convenience.
Today, of course, fast food restaurants lay claim to the majority of drive-thrus and most of us use them on a regular basis. (Who actually goes into a McDonald’s these days?) But you might be surprised to learn that burgers and fries aren’t the only thing you can order from the comfort of your car.
In the extended version of this year’s highly anticipated Volkswagen Super Bowl ad, a chubby dog named Bolt puts himself on a weight loss plan so he can catch a 2012 VW Beetle. And Darth Vader himself appears in a reference to VW’s awesome “Vader Kid” commercial from last year.
Given their terror-inducing nature, roller coasters can turn even the bravest thrill-seekers into whimpering babies. Watch as 10 men get much more than they bargained for on coasters and, for good measure, two giant slingshots. But, really, can anyone blame them? We’d probably cry for our mommies too.
Can’t wait a week to see Honda’s Ferris Bueller-themed Super Bowl commercial starring Matthew Broderick? Turns out, you don’t have to! The car company released a two-minute version of the ad on the internet today and it’s just as awesome as we had hoped.
Photos of the Earth taken from space are nothing new, but you’ve never seen the planet like this before, guaranteed. Dubbed “Blue Marble,” this NASA photo is a staggering 64-megapixels with an 8000 x 8000 resolution.
During a live forecast this week, meteorologist Joe “Milo” Snedeker of WNEP-TV hilariously ranted and raved in what can only be described as a mini-meltdown. There’s a high pressure front of seriously ticked-off weatherman rolling in, folks.
During snowy weather, it’s apparently a tradition to sled down Queen Anne Hill in Seattle despite the dangers of oncoming traffic. During a report on this activity, Meg Coyle of King 5 News had the nerve to suggest that sledders wear helmets.
Despite protests by the Parents Television Council and a student organization called the “No Cussing Club” (really?), ABC aired a controversial episode of ‘Modern Family’ last night in which Lily, Mitchell and Cam’s adopted daughter, uttered the “F-bomb.”
With the premiere of ‘The Firm,’ NBC has unleashed another movie-turned-TV-show on the world. You’ve no doubt heard about several other popular TV shows that were based on movies, such as ‘M*A*S*H*,’ ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Parenthood.’ But did you know that there was a ‘Parenthood’ sitcom in 1990 starring Leonardo DiCaprio?

Girl Scout cookie season is upon us! As you stock up on Samoas, Tagalongs and Thin Mints this year, you also might want to consider scoring a box or two of Savannah Smiles, a new cookie which celebrates the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary.
It’s hard to believe that Harrison Ford has never seen any of the ‘Indiana Jones’ movies. And yet, here he is recently watching the original trilogy in wide-eyed wonder. (Apparently, even Indy himself wants to pretend that ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ never happened.)
But as many YouTube commenters have pointed out, something seems fishy about this video.
