Welcome to your holiday edition of Plane Porn! This amazing display of holiday lights can be found at Denver's Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space museum. Here, we see a gigantic plane wrapped from nose to tail and wingtip to wingtip in holiday lights. This plane happens to be the venerable "BUFF" B-52.
Denver, Colorado is one of the very few places in America where you can currently purchase and consume marijuana legally. Even in its first year of sales, pot tourism has sprouted as a new industry in the Mile High City. But the fun stays here, as any bud found in your luggage won't be there when you get home.
I was at Denver International Airport yesterday evening as a supercell storm grazed the Southeastern side of the airport. The photo shows several phenomena including a rainbow, virga, mammatus, and the anvil cloud.
In what has to be the most ironic crashes ever, a PA-25 Pawnee crashed through the roof of a home in Northglenn, Colorado on Monday afternoon, starting a fire in the home. It's ironic because 1. He was towing a GEICO Insurance banner and 2. He used to live there.

Well, I'm glad we were able to start 2013 with an asshat BMW parking job. It just wouldn't feel right if we didn't, you know?
This might be the coolest Jeep ever built. It has eight-wheel-drive, a rear-mounted V8, and of course it has a rifle. Somehow, it is both for sale and startlingly adorable.
Everyone has their own way of dealing with unruly drivers on the roads. Some start tailgating and honking. Others make a point to tell the other drive that they're "number one." Many just take a zen approach.
Mercedes has put a number of heavily disguised cars through high altitude testing this week outside Denver.
Some cars, no matter how appealing, will always remain forbidden fruit to those of us on the Western side of the Atlantic.
My friend Dave was pretty surprised when he walked outside to jump in his car yesterday morning. There it was, sitting on four small bricks, lug nuts clustered in little piles around each hub, missing its wheels. It's not like the car was in a crappy neighborhood; it was a couple of blocks away from the Denver…
In a late bid for 2011's award for Most Brazen Act of Chutzpah, a Denver cop who was kicked off the force for doing 143 mph in a 55 zone while intoxicated is appealing his dismissal on grounds that the penalty was too harsh.
A Denver man sleeping in the camper of his 1993 Ford pickup woke up Tuesday to find a thief driving the pickup away, thanks to keys left in the ignition. Police ended the free ride quickly. (H/T Chad!) [DenverPost.com]
Welcome to Down On The Mile High Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the City That Rust Sorta Ignored: Denver, Colorado. It's too bad the Mercury brand is going away- no future Breezeways!
