Is It Okay To Leave Your Kid Alone In A Car If You're Not An Idiot?

Because it involves the possibility of a child dying, this deceptively simple concept is really difficult to discuss rationally. The act of leaving a kid to sit in a car while a parent does some sort of errand has been around since there’s been cars, parents, and kids.

Brits Drive Three Old Minis Across US To Raise Money For Boy's Surgery

There’s a little boy named Jack. Jack seems like the usual kooky happy four year old, but there’s one big issue — Jack has spastic diplegia cerebral palsy.

Yep, we totally understand you kid. Sometimes when the sun is beating down too hard and the day of fun has gone on a little too long and you're oddly comfortable in an uncomfortable position, you just fade away without a care in the world. It is a hammock's rest. It is ice melting in an umbrella drink. It is this kid… » 5/31/14 3:39pm 5/31/14 3:39pm

This Transforming, Driving Busker Is The Best Transformer Ever

Most Transformers are terrible, because they're really great, but then they're not real, because they're a cartoon, or a toy, or components of a Michael Bay film made entirely to sell toys. But this transforming busker that actually drives around is the best Transformer ever, because it brings Transformers to life. » 5/17/14 10:13am 5/17/14 10:13am
