  • Seattlest, recovering from ESPN's ranking of Seahawks fans, asked, "What makes a real Seattleite?"

  • Chicagoist checked out a new Gourmet food event, talked to CBS News' Bob Schieffer, and checked out a nude painting of Sarah Palin.
  • Bostonist played Sarah Palin Bingo.
  • Torontoist wrote about what just might have been the biggest Rickroll ever, thanks to an art installation that filled every window of their city hall with remote-controlled lights.
  • LAist was shocked to see a video of a grown man punching a teen girl multiple times after he budged her relatives at a McDonalds.
  • Shanghaiist covered the world's longest journey by skateboard ever made by a New Zealander that started in Switzerland and ended in Shanghai.
  • Londonist spied hundreds of people in gorilla suits descending upon the streets of London for the annual Great Gorilla Run.
  • SFist not only blushed at these NSFW shots from last week's sex-fetish extravaganza, the Folsom Street Fair, but also marveled at Sarah Palin's own perverse journalistic orgy of excess.
