Your idea of a shady double-life might mean calling in sick to work then going to the shops and having to keep an eye out for co-workers on their lunch break, but it doesn’t hold a candle to British police officer Mark Kennedy, who spent seven years undercover as a full-blown anti-pollution hippy extremist with a long-term girlfriend and a punk-rock band, while his wife and kids waited at home.
Most laughter is about dominance, trust, relief, adaptation, or bullying… in fact, laughter rarely has anything to do with humour! Researchers have come up with a whole range of reasons why we chuckle, giggle, snigger, cackle, and laugh hysterically, but they’re having a little trouble narrowing it down to a final conclusion.

When Bob Dylan said times are a-changin’, he neglected to mention that they’d change faster and faster as time went on. 80-year-olds might not be able to use computers but with the rate technology is progressing now, our generation won’t even be able to use the latest products when we’re 40! So here’s a handful of precious, much beloved pass-times to get nostalgic over, because the next generation will only be reading about them in the history books… oh wait, they won’t exist either.
Trace history back throughout the ages and you will surely find a few things that remain common despite the various different cultures, languages and levels of progression in technology.

Artists have a reputation for being pretty free-spirited when it comes to illegal substances and exploring “other realms of consciousness”… Bryan Lewis Saunders is no exception to the stereotype, devising a little experiment where he would paint a self-portrait every day for a month while under the influence of a different kind of substance each time. Some of his pieces are majestic, others are terrifying, and some are just straight-up scribbles…

Wanna see what $108 million gets you? Here’s a few pictures Macklowe Properties has recently uploaded onto their real estate website for an apartment in the soon-to-be-completed 432 Park Avenue.

A source of frustration for many Australians is the repeatedly perpetuated myth that Aussies ride kangaroos around like hopping horses. Whilst there is absolutely zero truth to that fable, kangaroos do, on occasion, engage in a bit of aggression exchange to validate the image of the Australian boxing kangaroo.
Even the nicest, most timid, laid-back and easy-going of us still manage to absolutely go nuts behind the wheel sometimes, and the lack of confrontation means people are less inhibited. So is road rage a healthy way to blow off steam, or is it more likely to have your engine blowing off steam… when you crash into a wall or have someone swing a crowbar into it?

We’ve all looked across at a red light and seen someone in the car next to us belting out a song on the radio at the top of their lungs, but this is something else. Check out Andie Case before she goes from the front passenger seat of a car to the main stage at the Grammy’s!
Being a new teacher fresh on the scene with a classroom of kids is daunting enough, let alone having one of the kids’ mothers bring in a pan of cookies made to look like vaginas to educate the second-graders on sex!

Ever heard of an actor telling their fans not to see their latest flick? That’s exactly what Nicolas Cage is doing, along with the film’s writer/director, producer, and his co-star.
