  • Seattlest wondered if a suicide prevention net was really the best idea for stopping people from jumping off the Aurora bridge.
  • Gothamist was grossed out when hearing a man found a serrated knife baked into his Subway sandwich's bread. Fresh-baked indeed!

  • DCist discussed shocking snobbery over delicious iced espressos.
  • Phillyist picks a local person (or thing) to be the asshole of the week. This time the lucky winner was a young man who apparently got drunk and ran over some visiting sports fans, then essentially bragged about it on his MySpace page.
  • SFist sparked a healthy and lengthy debate after discussing the City's latest bit of proposed anti-smoking legislation.
  • Chicagoist says,"The Dark Knight is The Empire Strikes Back to Batman Begins' A New Hope, only with better pacing, stunts, and special effects."
