Go Here: Star Trek Museum in Vulcan, Alberta
Remember when we used to make fun of Canadians? We'd laugh and laugh about how silly it was to live in the tundra, and how they had funny accents and rode caribou and stuff. Then they got universal health care, and we all sort of shut up. Well, they also have a Star Trek Museum in a town called…

My Foolproof System For Nicknaming the Opposite Sex — The [Fairer Se]X Files
Nicknames are so useful! For one, they are shorter than full names and take a lot less time to say. Plus, if you hate your given name, you can pretty much make up any BS name you want, and call it a "nickname." My favorite use for nicknames by far, though, is dating.
Make Your Biking Commute a Big, Weird Adventure With This Pee-Wee Herman Skinsuit
Every spring, I get the big idea that I'm going to start bicycling to work. Sometimes I even do it for a week, and pretend that it's the best thing I've ever done in my life, and that everything has changed forever. On the first day that it rains/is too hot/I don't feel like it leave me alone, that …
This Day in History — Brooklyn Dodgers Hire Emmett Kelly as Mascot
On this day in 1957, the Brooklyn Dodgers announced that they had hired the infamous circus clown Emmett Kelly to entertain their fans at games. (Read: On this day in history, a lot of people developed a debilitating phobia at a friendly afternoon baseball game in Brooklyn.)

This Day in History — First Can of Beer is Sold
It's almost the weekend, which is my favorite time to crack open a can of...well, if I'm honest, these days it's usually PBR. Times are tough, but not as tough as they probably were before this day in 1935, when the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered it's first batch of 2,000 cans of Kruege…
Go Here: Rattlesnake Saloon in a Cave in Alabama
If you've ever wanted to hull up in a bar and hibernate, what better place to do it than inside of an actual cave?
Go Here: Abandoned Hospital on North Brother Island in NY
Every time I got sick as a kid, my mother would call me 'Typhoid Mary.' That was before the internet was a thing, and so I always assumed she was having a bout of amnesia. When I was older, though, I learned that Mary was very real, typhoid was very scary, and this abandoned island hospita…
I’m Deleting a Lot of My Facebook Friends and You’re Probably Next — The [Fairer Se]X Fil…
When I got on Facebook way back in 2004, it was a network created specifically for college students. In order to join, you had to have a college email address. We all migrated over from Myspace and Friendster and left "testimonials" on each other's walls, because we had no idea what we wer…
This Day in History — ‘The A-Team’ Debuted on TV
On this day in 1983, we learned a valuable moral lesson about human compassion from a very large, loud man in gold chains: We learned to pity fools.
This Day in History — China Discovered Feathered Dinosaurs
I'll never forget the feeling I had on January 22, 2003, when I learned that Chinese scientists had found dinosaur fossils with four feathered wings. That feeling was: awesome.
Go Here: Mütter Museum in Philadelphia
I tend to have a pretty short attention span at history museums, unless they are one of two thing: interactive, or disturbing. The Mütter Museum, a museum of medical history, is definitely the latter, and so it's thankfully not the former. You would not want to interact with the …
Go Here: El Cosmico in Marfa, TX
Ever since I saw Baz Luhrmann's magical 1996 interpretation of 'Romeo and Juliet,' I've romanticized the idea of living in a weird desert trailer park. Now that I'm a grown up, the idea of permanent residence in one is slightly less appealing, but El Cosmico is a commun…
Original Batmobile Sells for $4.62 Million to a Guy Named Rick Champagne
As if we weren't already jealous of Rick Champagne for having the smoothest last name of all time, he is now the proud owner of our childhood dream car. Way to go, Rick; you've officially got it all. Super happy for you. Really.
Go Here: Centralia — Abandoned Mine Fire and Ghost Town in Pennsylvania
When people ask my why I won't watch horror movies, I tell them that I've never seen 'Silent Hill' because Centralia exists, and it's creepy enough.
Megan Fox is Possibly Losing Her Mind
Esquire interviewed babe Megan Fox this week, and we learned a whole lot more about her. Not only is she crazy beautiful, but she's also possibly just plain crazy.
Go Here: South of the Border
Usually when I'm traveling, I avoid kitschy tourist stuff like the plague. Most often it's has little to do with the actual culture of the place I'm visiting, and I get bored pretty easily. The infamous South of the Border (SOTB) is an exception, though. Seated on the line between North and South C…
Go Here: The Museum of the City of New York
Let me start by saying that I think the name of this museum sounds boring, too. I only found out that it was awesome because I was already in the neighborhood for something called 'Ice Derby,' which is a much better name but had unbeknownst to me been rescheduled. Don't worry, I'm still going to Ice…
