This is a franchise where you used to be able to use hookers for a health boost, and then kill them to get your money back, after all. And Grand Theft Auto V has gotten lambasted for this treatment.

Pearl Jam‘s love-hate relationship with making music videos is beginning to lean back toward “love.” After winning Best Video of the Year at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards for the stupidly controversial “Jeremy,” Pearl Jam asserted that they were done with the medium.

An Illegal Mountain Retreat On A 26 Story Apartment Block Built By A Beijing Professor. (8 photo)

A 26 story residential building in Beijing, China has a new bizarre construction. There's a mountain on the roof around one man's attic apartment. How did this happen you wonder? A doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, Professor Zhang Biqing built it over a period of 6 years by carrying rocks and other material to construct a mountain around his home. He then added some balconies and landscaping to create his own retreat. All of that was done illegally and without consulting with the rest of the building residents, so after complaints of cracking walls, the eccentric owner was issued a 15 day notice to remove his 800 square meter creation. "I used to worry that the house might be too much but I never expected this much attention," Zhang is reported to have told The Beijing News. Oh of course not, it totally blends in with the rest of the mountain top buildings.

YouTube pranksters known as 'Whatever' created a little social experiment to test gender stereotypes. A man and a woman, both young and attractive went around asking random people on the streets of Santa Barbara, California to have sex with them. "We weren't actually trying to get laid, so we were hoping to accomplish an interesting/entertaining video," Whatever said to the Daily News. How would you react if a sexy stranger came up to you with this question? The girl asked 14 college aged men and got a 50% success rate, while the guy who asked 100 college aged females got rejected 100% of the time. Why am I not surprises? Nobody actually had sex with anybody, but the videos went viral on YouTube and everyone got a good laugh out of the show.
