CAR, MORTORCYCLE OR BOTH
Listen up, guys. If your mother has ever shot you down for that new motorcycle because it was "too dangerous," show her this.
An upstart automaker in California has created a vehicle for people who want the mobility and fuel efficiency of a motorcycle and the safety of something with doors.
Some parents wait far too late to explain to their children that it's not OK to play in the street, and some parents just don't supervise their kids well enough.
Whatever the case, one child who wandered onto a busy highway was fortunate that (A.) more care didn't decide to get on the road that day and (B.) the truck driver on the other side of the road was attentive enough to stop.
If you have a heart condition, you probably should stay off sidewalks in Providence, RI.
A snowman statue with a person inside has been scaring people for years, but somehow the entertainment value has not diminished.

Perhaps the only thing more frustrating than getting in and out of a busy grocery store is trying to do it when your legs are plastic, square and don't bend.
Life is truly interesting, but it gets even weirder when you're a LEGO.
