 ‘Spider-Man' Takes Off, With Some Bumps
Crew members, standing on the stage, spent 45 seconds trying to grab Spider-Man by the foot, as the audience laughed and oohed. When they finally caught him, Mr. White announced intermission, and the house lights came on.

 British Cheese Rolling
In a tradition that dates back at least 200 years, possibly much longer, groups of fearless competitors chase an 8 pound (3.5 kg) round of Double Gloucester Cheese down an extremely steep and uneven hill, with a 1:1 gradient in some parts. Thousands of spectators gather to watch the five downhill and four uphill races, and to celebrate the winners and console the losers afterward. Injuries such as broken bones and concussions are commonplace

 I Don't See How This Could Backfire
"A peaceful demonstration of at least a million — hey, if we can 10 million, even better — but at least one million armed militia men marching on Washington."

So, in summary, that report warning about right wing militias being on the upswing in Obama's America was complete paranoid fantasy on the part of the DHS.

 Why Billy Joel Sucks
Really, it's more complicated than you initially think!

[Full Disclosure: Billy Joel was the first musician I ever saw in concert. I wasn't able to go to the Guns N' Roses concert the previous week. These two facts are pretty much my greatest regrets from my Junior High/High School days, right after never asking J.K. out, choosing instead to hang around and be "such a good friend."]

 Red Hook Food Vendors get 6 Year Permit
The epic and sordid ordeal with the Red Hook Ball Field food vendors—which began last summer when the vendors got called out by both the DOH for health violations and the Parks Dept for a lack of permits—finally comes to a close today, as the Parks Dept. announced they awarded them a 6 year permit for the grounds. Soccer fans, taco eaters, and all manner of Red Hook foodies can rest easy as the food tents will be set up in time for the opening of the season.
