VIDEO: Watch Adults Become a Giant, Human-Sized Foosball Table

Originally posted 08/04/2014 04:35PM

You would be forgiven for thinking the concept of a "human foosball table" was a logical impossibility. After all, who has the time to train dozens of people to do simultaneous backflips?

But Minnesota's Brownton Area Resource for Kids was able to make the dream of a human foosball table a reality, all by paring the concept of foosball down to its most basic elements – and then blowing it up to an adult size.

Outraged Letter to the Editor Defends Fred Flintstone's History of Nonviolence

Outraged Letter to the Editor Defends Fred Flintstone's History of Nonviolence

Yabba-dabba-WHAT?!

In her column on Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was suspended two games by the NFL after his arrest for domestic violence, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins criticized the light response to Rice's actions, asking how the league could justify "a two-game penalty for a running back going all Flintstone on his wife."

On Thursday, Jenkins's column provoked an impassioned response from one Post reader, who sent a letter to the editor defending Fred Flintstone against implicit charges of spousal abuse.

As Martin Kramer of Takoma Park, Maryland, wrote, "Fred Flintstone had his faults, but he loved and respected his wife Wilma, often referring to her as his queen."

Male Rowers Get Naked to Fight Homophobia While Facebook Censors Female Rowers

Originally posted 07/29/2014 11:15AM

As they have every year since 2009, the rowing team at England's Warwick University has gotten naked to raise money for an anti-homophobia charity.

The rowers have stripped down to produce an annual nude calendar, the proceeds of which will benefit Sport Allies, an organization that aims to combat homophobia and transphobia through the power of sports.

In its five years of existence, the project has proven to be a valuable fundraiser, selling over 15,000 copies in its last edition. A large part of this success is due to the crew team's enviable physiques, but just as important is the calendar's tasteful adherence to the Austin Powers rule of nudity: All the rowers, even the coxswains, are just barely covered up in the crucial areas.
