There are so many dump trucks and pavers and road rollers paving Moscow’s Tverskaya Street in this time lapse that it looks like a massive swarm of machines have taken over Russia. The smaller road rollers look and move a lot like the little planes that launch from the mothership (which, in this case would be the dump…

The killing of black Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has sparked a weird kind of racial spasm that's resulted in terrible articles, Spike Lee scaring old people, and made Facebook almost unvisitable for the past week. Now Metro Detroit's getting in on the bile after someone in Dearborn — the suburb of Detroit home to…
This is why you always look twice before crossing an intersection. Just as a light turned green in Rotterdam, a gigantic mobile construction crane cam barreling through the intersection at high speed, collecting a little econobox in its path. Jeepers.
