Congratulations, Lindsay Lohan. You are no longer the worst-mannered criminal to ever appear in court.

In the following video, we see Penelope Soto, an 18-year old in Florida who was arrested on drug possession charges.

After laughing her way through a few questions and treating the judge like an irritating parent, the teenager was slapped with a $10,000 fine.

The Death Star, undoubtedly a worthwhile undertaking but not on the Obama administration's radar, is now on Kickstarter if you want to help build one.

Here they go again. North Korea has released an online video depicting New York City under an apparent missile attack (set to "We Are the World" no less).

The bizarre three-minute video was released by Uriminzokkiri, which distributes "news" and propaganda from North Korea’s state-run media:

It features a young man in a dream sequence, aboard a North Korean space shuttle launched by the same type of rocket the rogue state tested in December.

A major city, presumably New York, draped in a U.S. flag, is then shown to the tune of “We are the World,” the global charity single recorded in 1985.
