The soul-crushing loss that Brazil suffered at the hands of Germany on Tuesday had nothing to do with talent. Germany simply won the World Cup match because Brazil wasn’t even on the pitch during the game. Well, fine. This video may have been edited just a little bit.
Trains pass through Uxbridge hauling various freight and bulk items along the Providence and Worcester Railroad, but as the train passed through one night this past week, it picked up an unexpected load of human waste in an incident that has left railroad employees and law enforcement officials slack-jawed and speechless.
Four individuals on the railroad bridge on Route 122 had dropped their drawers and defecated on the train as it passed below.
The Chinese fondness for napping in odd places is a well-documented phenomenon, one that’s spawned a popular website and even a book.
One Getty photographer recently focused on a subspecies of the Chinese nappers: Those who like to frequent IKEA’s beds.

The television cameras at baseball games often catch fans in semi-embarrassing moments, and good sports announcers are adept at poking gentle fun at spectators when the action on the diamond slows down.

Try Googling it: “What time is it in Indiana?” You’ll get a first answer—say, 5:52 p.m.—and then you’ll get a second, in smaller text: say, 4:52. What Google won’t tell you at all is that, if it’s summer, there will be places in Indiana where people call it 3:52, because—to this day—their communities decline, in contravention of state law, to observe Daylight Savings Time. In fact, there’s really no answering the question of what time it is in Indiana, except in the plural. There is no one time in Indiana. There aren’t even two times. There is a kind of messy plurality of times.
