Improv Everywhere earned internet infamy with flash mob pranks such as the No Pants Subway Ride and When Harry Met Sally in Real Life, both of which made people stop in their tracks to watch something bizarre happen. This time, however, Improv Everywhere is supplying a less abstract public service: relief from the heat.

Pez dispensers buried on New York City beaches this weekend contained something even sweeter than candy: cold, hard cash.
The backers of the popular Hidden Cash movement filled three dozen of the devices with $100 bills and scattered them for a scavenger hunt Sunday in Brooklyn's Coney Island and Brighton Beach.
One lucky boy found a Superman-shaped dispenser good for two round-trip airline tickets to anywhere in the U.S.

When you think of Madonna, there are all kinds of phrases that immediately leap to mind, word pairings like "Material Girl," "boy toy" or "pointy bra." Now you can add "jury duty" to that list. Sort of.
The 55-year-old pop star did report to a Manhattan courthouse on Monday morning to perform everyone's least favorite civic duty – but she was treated like, well, Madonna. According to the Associated Press, she was immediately taken into the clerk's office instead of having to wait in the jury assembly room with everyone else who'd received a summons in the mail.

Manhattanhenge returns Thursday night for the first of two 2014 engagements. If you're in New York City, here's how best to properly experience Neil deGrasse Tyson's astronomical holiday.
1. Be in Manhattan for the sunset. We cannot overstate how important this is. The event is not called Brooklynhenge (though we imagine a band with such a name will be popping up any day now), nor Queenshenge, nor Bronxhenge nor Statenhenge. The setting sun aligns with Manhattan's street grid only – sorry, outer boroughs.
2. Choose a street. Certain streets are better for this purpose than others. 42nd Street at Tudor City is widely regarded as the best place to see Manhattanhenge, which results in hilarious images like this.
