Local Stops: Banana Mousse, Subway Goons, And Stonehenge

A school district in San Diego has acquired a tank through a military surplus program.

A laptop was found in an Islamic State safe house, had recipes for banana mousse and a lot of Celine Dion music on it (also, you know, lots of guides on how to make explosives).

A German bartender just put that bro who spilled his drink on you last weekend to shame.

A Chinese subway system accidentally called its riders goons. 

Archeologists may be getting closer to knowing who built Stonehenge…and what they were doing.

Local Stops: Human-Dog Marriage, Giant Spider Dogs, And Jolly Rancher Meth

A woman in India is being forced to marry a dog because her family claims she has an evil spirit.

Speaking of dogs, here’s one dressed as a giant spider.

Some NYC cops confused Jolly Ranchers for meth, because they’re basically the same thing.

Russian space geckos trained to have sex with each other (IN SPACE) come back to Earth. Dead.

For all who haven’t heard the news, Los Perros Locos is now closed. First Japadog, now this?!

Rejoice! There’s a blind, atheist, feminist running for Congress in Arizona.

When doing live reporting, always watch out for a dildo in your ear.

-What’s cooler: This NYU hat or the “NY Train Project” by Adam Chang?

-Serious Eats ranked fast food vanilla shakes, because apparently Serious Eats like to drink boredom from a straw.

-Basics bitches run this city.
