Sony's game console comes in a box 19 inches long, 13 inches wide, and just over 4 inches thick. It does not fit in your pants, as Floridian Christopher Caldwell learned to his dismay.
A security guard at a Port St. Lucie Walmart told police that he saw Caldwell, 36, not only "sticking the PlayStation 4 in his pants" but stuffing in accessories, too. When he left the store without paying for the gear, he was stopped. Mr. Caldwell now faces a charge of felony grand theft.

A November 2012 article in “Vanity Fair” talks of Justin Beiber’s affinity for harem pants and describes them as “a supremely unflattering style of trousers that droop above the knee like an oversize diaper before tapering down to the ankle.”

Last June, 18-year-old Daniel Fabian of Pasco County, Florida was playing Grand Theft Auto Online, when he informed the other players in his team chat that he was going to take a break to "smash" (have sex with) a 15-year-old girl.
With everything happening in the last few months, we all but guarantee no one has been thinking about their taxes. That’s understandable — because, beyond all of our current concerns, nobody enjoys the whole tax filing process during even the best of times. Unfortunately, Benjamin Franklin was right — taxes truly are as inescapable as […]
Most parents know that giving their kids educational toys and other projects will expand their minds. But what many might not realize is that physical play is actually building their mental abilities as well. Studies are still in beginning stages, but some early research supports the theory that kids who get the chance to get […]
Not every house has a fireplace. And to be honest, not every homeowner wants to deal with the hassles and maintenance of a fireplace. But it’s tough to argue that the intoxicating glow and dance of a licking flame isn’t mesmerizing, not to mention all of a fire’s practical uses. For those looking to enjoy […]
