    L.A. Science Teacher Suspended for Teaching Science

    Science can be dangerous, and apparently so can teaching it. A Los Angeles high school science teacher was suspended back in February, because two students made science projects that administrators of the Unified Los Angeles Schooled District deemed "dangerous." You're doing education wrong, administrators.

    Marvel To Film Netflix TV Shows in New York City, So Suck It, Los Angeles

    What, LA, you think you're better than us with your Mediterranean climate and your giant television studios? Well you can cool it over there, pal, because Marvel just announced that they'll be filming their Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica Powers shows in New York, where we'll get to stalk them at our leisure.

    Everyone Be Good, Because KrampusFest Is Coming

    Every major city in the U.S. has a "Santacon" now, where folks dress up like Santa Claus and run around drinking and starting fights. In NYC, it's basically the worst thing ever. So we're pretty jealous of Los Angeles for scheduling its first ever "Krampusfest," inspired by the mythological Christmas monster that terrorizes naughty children.

It's called the Hyperloop, and it's a transit system that can go between San Francisco to Los Angeles in only 30 minutes using magnetic levitation and Futurama-esque vacuum tubes.

    That’s It, We’re Moving: Seven-Foot-Tall Bruce Lee Statue Unveiled in L.A.’s Chinatown

    Geekosystem's office is in New York City, and while I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, I've got to admit that we have terrible pop culture-centic statues compared to some other cities. Philadelphia has Rocky, Milwaukee has The Fonz, Palm Springs had that enormous Marilyn Monroe -- heck, Detroit's getting a RoboCop! And what do we have? A statue of Ralph Kramden from The Honeymooners hanging out next to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. It's practically a slap in the face. So the news that the Chinatown district of Los Angeles recently erected a seven foot tall statue of Bruce Lee, in all his shirtless nunchuck-slinging glory, has me a bit miffed. We have a loudmouth bus driver and they have Bruce Lee? Man, screw New York.

    L.A. Officially Names Intersection After Ray Bradbury Even Though He Didn’t Drive

    Ever since Ray Bradbury, science fiction guru and author of works like The Martian Chronicles, passed away back in June, folks have been tossing around the idea of renaming something in Los Angeles after the late writer. Recently, the idea came to rename an intersection after the man. Yesterday, the Los Angeles City Council voted to rename the downtown intersection at Fifth and Flower to Ray Bradbury Square. This is somewhat amusing, as Bradbury didn't drive.

    The Drifting Man [Video]

    YouTube user DENJCA29 set up a camera with the intention of creating a 24-hour timelapse video near his home in downtown L.A.. What he didn't intend was to capture this strange footage of a man slowly "drifting" across the frame. The video is sped up eight-times normal speed, so the events you see unfolded over about five minutes. Who this drifting gentleman is will probably remain forever a mystery. (via Daily What)
