And the bride wore zip ties: Nice day for an Occupy Wall Street wedding

A cute couple is getting married in Zuccotti park this morning in New York City. Have fun occupying a happy future together, kids. Here's a photo of the bride, and here's the "sacred space." Here's the ring. @Newyorkist says, "Friends of couple inform they met here at spiritual circle months ago. Emery and Micha. Being married by NYU chaplain."

      The dead hate the living. You’re talking about people who see no reasonable chance of ever mating with a member of their own species.

  2. Seriously — what’s with the photo being all messed up from their shoulders upward? It looks like it’s been unintentionally half-superimposed with another photo, and their faces are partially obscured. At first I thought it was just my browser, but it isn’t. I can has non-corrupted image?
