Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten knows that flying is uncomfortable enough (strict carry-on rules, awkward TSA patdowns) without a rude invasion of space by your fellow passengers. Cramped quarters on most airplanes make it downright inhumane to recline your seat, minimizing the already-meager leg room of the person behind you.
Morning commutes just got a lot more fun in Utrecht. Recent renovations to a train station in the Overvecht neighborhood of the Netherlands city included the installation of a slide (their transit authority calls it a “transfer accelerator”), which passengers can ride to the platform instead of taking the adjacent stairs.
When the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, a Canadian Football League team, scored against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, they eschewed typical touchdown celebrations like chicken dances and got their plank on instead. The offensive team drop into the rigid plank pose that’s been sweeping the globe (and more recently, fellow athletes like Dwight Howard and Gilbert Arenas).
Cutest rescue ever! Like a scene from a Pixar adventure, Ferris the Corgi embarked on a mission to free his sister, Dot Matrix, from a cage. After assessing her enclosure, Ferris neatly unhooked the clasp on the cage’s door and Dot scrambled (well, ambled) out. See the great escape below:
‘Cars 2,’ the newest blockbuster from Pixar, premiered over the weekend and with it, a teaser trailer for the animation studio’s next flick, ‘Brave.’ The film, set in the Scotland Highlands, follows the story of Merida, “a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor” who makes a regrettable wish. ‘Brave’ boasts a killer international cast of voices, including Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson and Billy Connolly.

In an official White House video that’s circulating today, Barack and Michelle Obama are greeting a crowd of visitors when the first lady picks up a fan’s baby. The infant is wailing, but when she’s handed over to the president, her cries instantly stop. Watch the clip below:
Just when we thought we were over the 2003 passing of Mister Rogers, a man named Christopher Barranco dug up a letter from the children’s show star that he received at age six and posted it to Reddit. In it, the late Fred Rogers expresses his condolences that Christopher cannot visit his neighborhood in real life, but they can still have “television visits and a letter visit like this one.” Even more sniffle-inducing is Rogers’ suggestion that he create a pretend visit between the two, noting that, “When you pretend, things can be any way you want them to be.” Read the full letter below:
Alex Thomas and Scott Jones, the couple who made headlines after being caught in a kiss at the Vancouver riots last week, appeared on ‘Today’ this morning to tell the story behind the makeout session seen ’round the internet. Jones explained that Thomas had been knocked to the ground by police trying to tame the crowd (which a video that emerged over the weekend supports) and he was only trying to soothe her:
The latest Twitter parody account (twarody?) is “Aunt Diane,” a wacky middle-aged aunt from Santa Fe who’s a lot like, well, everybody’s wacky, middle-aged aunt: She makes Nepalese jewelry!
