Chicago police discovered two football fields worth of marijuana growing on the city’s Southeast Side.

A police helicopter spotted a patch of roughly 1,000 plants, some of which were 10 feet tall and “as big as Christmas trees.”

Police also stumbled upon a surveillance post where the growers where able to observe their goods. Police have told ABC Chicago that this might be the largest marijuana discovery in city’s history.

Police will begin destroying the marijuana today, an arduous process that could take several days. Somewhere, potheads are crying THC tears over this.

Ugandan Security Guard Can’t Handle Oculus Rift And Falls Off His Chair (Video)

The virtual reality simulator Oculus Rift has been (hilariously) tested out on a fair amount of unwitting subjects, old people and porn-viewers alike, over the past several months. This video, however, takes the cake for the funniest reaction thus far. Watch as this poor security guard in Uganda gets way more than he bargained for when GamersNights filmed an episode of […]

Everyone has been the victim of a sh*tty first date at some point, but this one probably takes the cake for the worst date in history.

Those in their 20s and 30s – the so-called Generation-Yers – are steering further and further away from what many would consider the reality of the American dream. […]
