    Energy drinks are a favorite with the young people in the sober community. I never thought I would be one of THOSE people. I used to judge them. The first time I tried one I felt jittery and didn’t indulge in one again for a long time. Then came a day where I had...

  • Palestinian TV features artist depicting Israel as child-eating monster

    July 25, 2012 | 11:13 am

    An artist who recently appeared on Palestinian Authority TV described one of his paintings that featured an ogre—wearing a skullcap with the Star of David—killing children on a bayonet before eating them, Palestinian Media Watch reported.

    The painting shows two other monsters wearing similar skullcaps, as well as a pile of dead children.

    “This painting is about the Gaza massacre,” Palestinian artist Abd Al-Hai Msallam said. “Here I show the people, the kids, and the Zionist enemy’s cruelty and savagery.”

  • A new theory on the Montauk monster

    Folks are still hysterical over the origin, and species, of the Montauk monster. (Don’t worry: It was definitely not the Pale Horse of the Apocalypse.)

    The blogger at Tetrapod Zoology makes a strong case that the curious creature was actually a quite common mammal. It was a raccoon,...

    The original image of this creature, seen here, left people a bit breathless. Was it a dog with a beak or a sea turtle with long legs? Were we glad it was found dead on a Long Island beach and not alive in Manhattan like the lice in “Cloverfield?” Was its appearance the beginning of...

    Gawker published photos on Tuesday of what’s being dubbed the Monster of Montauk—or the Montauk Monster—under the headline: “Dead Monster Washes Ashore in Montauk.”

    In the 16th Century CE Rabbi Judah Loew was said to have created a powerful Golem to defend Prague’s Jewish ghetto.

    It's a sunny winter day and a friend and I fear for our lives as my husband, Ron Magid, screeches our oversized Chrysler east down Sunset Boulevard. We're speeding toward the ArcLight Cinemas and a press screening of Peter Jackson's "King Kong."

    The usually amiable Ron swears at...
