We wanted to post a video of this hilarious CNN story featuring current high-ranking Senators living in squalor, but then we found this even better clip of Bill Murray cursing while brushing his teeth and shaving during his “Alpha House” cameo, so we said screw it and ran with it.

A San Francisco turned Gotham City made a five-year-old Bat Kid’s wish come true.
Above, the San Francisco Chronicle printed a special edition of their paper in honor of Bat Kid, with articles written by none other than Lois Lane and Clark Kent.

Again, best sense of civic pride anywhere.

Ever find yourself out in the woods with a dead USB-powered device? Fortunately, someone’s thought of that, and that something is called the FlameStower. And of course there’s a Kickstarter. Nothing like giving your phone a charge with some fire.

The Best in Absurd Stock Photography

Earlier this summer Gettycritics.com, a new website that makes fun of lousy or absurd stock photography, was posted on Reddit. Six days later it had a million hits. Now they’ve released a dubbed video mocking bad stock footage (below).

Gettycritics.com is the brainchild of Andrew MacPhee and Bart Batchelor, both art directors who constantly need stock photography for campaigns. Over time they’ve looked at thousands and thousands of images and in all their searching they’ve noticed that some stock photos don’t quite work.

For example, there’s the photo they once ran across that showed a happy family eating breakfast but the dad was pouring the kid a cup of coffee. Or the one they found that showed a family out raking leaves, not in their front yard, but in some random park.

“We started finding all kinds of these photos that are seemingly normal but also have something fundamentally absurd,” says MacPhee, who used to work at the same agency as Batchelor, but recently moved to a new one.

Pointing out these oddities seemed like a perfect blog idea so back in July the pair created Gettycritics.com, named after Getty Images, which has a humongous photography archive and was the first place they usually turned for stock.

Awesome Video of the Day: We’re not entirely certain where the idea came from, but new footage captured by a Go Pro camera (strapped to an eagle) has proven quite popular since it was published on Monday. Anybody else suddenly find themselves wondering how much longer it’ll be before we can all afford our own jetpacks?  source
