Heck yeah, we had them in typing class at school a Vallejo Middle School. Never in actual, real life though.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Paparazzo from La Docle Vita.

When Candlestick was a race track — In the mid-1960s Juan Marichal's fastball may have ruled Candlestick, but the park was also known for another kind of speed. From 1963 until 1965 Candlestick was the site of Sports Car Club of America races in the parking lot outside the stadium.

Cheerleader sinks half-court shot - third year in a row — Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader and soccer player as William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi has a streak going. At every home basketball game, Arnau attempts a running, gymnastic half-court shot, and in her senior year, she has done it again. (Her previous three-pointers can bee seen here) Check it out:

Woman slaps around teen for participating in Baltimore riots — A woman is being roundly praised on social media for her actions in a viral video from the riots following the funeral of Freddie Gray in Baltimore Monday. Baltimore TV station WMAR reports that a mother saw her son on television taking part in protests and went to confront him.

Historic sites in Nepal, before and after the earthquake — Shelter, fuel, food, medicine, power, news, workers - Nepal's earthquake-hit capital was short on everything Monday as its people searched for lost loved ones, sorted through rubble for their belongings and struggled to provide for their families' needs. In much of the countryside, it was worse, though how much worse was only beginning to become apparent.

Video: Fla. cops Tase student tripping on LSD — A police body camera captured a chaotic scene on the campus of the University of Central Florida Sunday. According to the Orlando Sentinel, John Kane, a 21-year-old student at the university in Orlando, was shot with a Taser stun gun after resisting arrest.

Before the fires: Arnold Genthe's Chinatown — There are very few photographs of San Francisco's Chinatown before the earthquake and fires of 1906. This makes the work of Arnold Genthe, a German-born American photographer, all the more special. Genthe began photographing life in Chinatown in 1896 and continued his work there until 1911 when he moved to New York City.

150 years ago Thursday, the Civil War ended with a handshake — So read a dispatch from an Associated Press correspondent on April 9, 1865 after witnessing Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrender to the Union's General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox. Thus ended the bloodiest war the United States has ever waged, a war which divided the nation and ultimately lead to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

Resident campaigns to have 'nightmare' statue of Lucille Ball removed — A 400-pound bronze Lucille Ball is making news around the globe faster than you can say "Vitameatavegamin." The statue was commissioned by two local residents in the western New York village of Celoron, who wanted to honor the legendary comedienne in the town where she was raised, but now a Facebook group formed three years ago calling for the statue's replacement is gaining international attention with articles in the U.K.'s Daily Mail and elsewhere.
