Between Vegas and L.A., there are aliens.
Please, don't just take my word for it (though anyone who's taken that drive should know what strange occurrences might await).
Instead, hark at NBA star Baron Davis, who seems to have little doubt that beings from out there invaded his space down here, as he journeyed back from the City of Sin to the City of Spin.
In a pulsating interview with "The Champs" podcast (warning: he uses naughty words here), the former Golden State Warrior (currently teamless) insists that one minute he was driving and the … Read more

First it was for sale. Then it wasn't. Then it would be for sale soon. And now, finally--maybe--it will "not ever" be for sale.
This, of course, is Rocketboom creator Andrew Baron's Twitter account. When it was originally for sale last week on eBay, bidding for it had climbed to more than $1,500 before he pulled the plug on the auction.

It appears that for now at least, we won't get to find out the value of identity on Twitter.
A few days ago, Rocketboom creator Andrew Baron put his Twitter account up for sale on eBay, offering access to his 1,500-plus followers. (It's now at 1,757 followers.) Within a few days, the bidding had gone over $1,500 and appeared headed for much more.
At the same time, Baron went on Craigslist and was also offering to sell a two-day guest-hosting slot on his Twitter account for $150.
"I really love my Twitter account but … Read more
