Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

The sun and stars have a thing for stocks -- or coffee, lingerie, and Big Macs.

Well, that's very... forward.

And look at you, having a slice of voyeurism with your morning coffee.

"You had something hanging from the collar of your sweater." Please let it be deli meat.

She didn't let a date stop her from grabbing him.

He fell into her eyes like a meteorite. Or maybe that guy who jumped out of a balloon in the upper atmosphere.

Yes, while you're at it, could you please provide time and dates for all your unsavory conduct. With photo ID.

He's hoping she was looking because she liked him, not because he was on a cringe-moment date.

Wanted: female best friend, must be prompt.

Wanted: female dart thrower, must be able to commit.

How long can one guy survive on Max London's, coffee, and free internet?

The good news: your lost iPad still turns on. The bad news: people have been driving over it in the roundabout in Slingerlands.

And apparently the lost pet fox in Troy is named "Cricket."

I had the pleasure of experiencing protected bike lanes in Montreal recently. It really made for a fast, efficient way to move both bike & car traffic. As a biker, it was easy to see how to navigate a busy road, and it was nice to have a bit of buffer/safety from traffic (or just knowing that the possibility of a car swerving in to you was incredibly low because of these features). As a driver, it was nice to see all of the bikes in one area, so that you don't have the errant biker who decides to blow through most of the traffic signals the wrong way down a street.
