Video From World’s Tallest Giga Coaster May Induce Vomiting [Video]

When I was a kid, I once waited in line for at least an hour and half to ride a roller coaster. I was excited, but also terrified. And at the last minute I chickened out.

When it was my turn, I burst into tears and totally refused to get on. I'm sure my Dad was quite pleased, after waiting all that time.

Janna Braves the Cold for Craft Beer at the Winter Beer Festival [Video]

This past weekend I withstood frigid temperatures, numb fingers, and port-o-potties with ice clinging to the seats, all in the name of craft beer.

I know, I'm such a trooper.

To tide myself over until WGRD's Summer Craft Beer Festival, which is now called America On Tap, I went to the Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark.

Aside from Jesus references, Twitter users also had a lot to say about Leto's long hair and blue suit, invoking Prom and Dumb and Dumber.
