Vanessa Hudgens Pumps It

Celebrities are no different from ordinary folk. They may be ridiculously good looking and have fortune and fame, but at the end of the day they do mundane things like pump their own gas. High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens was recently photographed pumping her own gas in Los Angeles, proving celebrities are just like normal everyday people...and that her "boyfriend" Zac Efron isn't really man enough for the task.

Hot Girls in Costumes

Why cosplay girls are so hot as a general rule is anybody’s guess.  One would think that dressing up as one’s favorite video game character would be reserved for the most acne-ridden and clinically obese basement beasts.  But one would be really, really wrong about that.  For proof, check out Manofest's gallery of “65 Photos of Smoking Hot Cosplay Girls.” [Manofest]

Porn Sting Goes To The Dogs

Michelle Owens, a 24-year-old Indiana woman, was concerned that her ex-boyfriend used her laptop to search for child pornography. She contacted the police who searched the computer. The police didn’t find any kiddie porn, but what they did find was two video files of Owens engaged in illicit acts with her dog. Owens said that the videos "were just something she did when she was drunk and barely remembers it," adding that she tried to "delete them the next day when she was sober." Owens has been charged with two felony bestiality counts. [The Smoking Gun]

Christopher Nolan’s Brother Wanted for Murder

Matthew Francis Nolan, director Christopher Nolan’s (The Dark Knight) 40-year-old brother, is wanted for kidnapping and murder in Costa Rica. In a crazy scheme to get a Florida businessman, Robert C. Cohen, to repay $7 million dollars to someone else, he and Douglas Mejia purportedly kidnapped Cohen and subsequently killed him when the money wasn’t forthcoming. The older Nolan was already in the FBI’s doghouse for $700,000 he reportedly swindled in a bank fraud case. Sounds like Matthew Nolan’s life is wild enough for a movie, and we know just the director.

Google Chrome is the Best Internet Browser

At the Pwn2Own hacking competition, hackers compete to crack programs and sites as fast as they can.  Right now, they’re working on internet browsers, and Google Chrome is the only one left standing after a day of competition.  In fact, Safari was cracked in a matter of seconds, but the engineers at Google have created some kind of steel-clad beast of browsing that withstood even the savviest hacker’s attacks – for today at least.

New Cars Now Cheaper Than Used

The lagging sales of new vehicles has been well documented, forcing retailers and manufacturers to offer some pretty amazing deals just to move their metal. Sometimes, the price of a brand new car is so good that it doesn't make sense to purchase a used vehicle. In fact, some new cars are actually priced lower than their previously-loved siblings. One specific example is the 2009 Honda Accord, which, according to Edmunds, is selling for about $80 less than the average asking price for a certified 2008 model. And now that interest rates on loans for new cars are generally lower than for used cars, it means the monthly payments may actually be lower for a zero-mile vehicle that costs the same as one that's been around the block a few times.
