I don’t understand how you’re supposed to stand on this crazy looking scooter. And how do you charge it?
As seen at 1pm on Delafield and 8th st NW, this creature was NOT a cat without a tail and was trying to go up the stairs to houses.
Beaver with a fuzzy tail?
Honey badger misplaced?
Someone’s obese ferret escaped?
What is this?!”
According to my expertise, and obviously I had to post this video, it’s not a honey badger. (more…)

Sam, and others, ask: “does anyone know why it has smelled like the zoo outside of the p street Whole Foods for the past month???”
Back in April 2015 the malodorous mystery first reared its ugly head on P Street. At that time DC Water told us it was due to a “clogged sewer line” and took a few days to fix. Perhaps the same issue?

“In light of the “Poverty” vanity plate post….Spotted on Sherman Ave. on my commute home yesterday.”
Let’s try to flip this around – what are the best vanity plates you’ve ever seen?
A reader spots this ‘POVERTY’ plate Friday night in Chinatown and is just as gobsmacked as I am. What are they thinking with a plate like this on a BMW?

Sadly no photo but Abigail Twittahfield messaged us around midnight:
“Anybody else see that meteorite just now fall & burn out (looking west from #DC)?! From Logan Cir it looked like it was right over Georgetown! It was nuts. And so bright out of the corner of my eye, it caught my attention.”
Anyone else see this – by chance snap a photo?

“Still looking to find out the reasoning behind this bright yellow metro car that I saw this morning at L’enfant.”
Will tweet metro but anyone happen to know? Caption contest while we’re waiting to find out!
Update: It’s the money train – that was fast! Though I think they should use a more subtle color to move money around…
I live near the Convention Center and have always wondered what these metal tracks are in the sidewalk and street surrounding the Convention Center. The run most of the perimeter of the complex and in some areas they run perpendicular across the street. Anyone have any idea?”
It’s been a while since we’ve spoken about these guys – the first time was back in January 2010. Long story short – they are expansion joints. Slighter longer story:
“They are expansion joints. Due to changes in weather, hot and cold, materials expand or contract. You will most commonly see these on bridges. The reason why the convention center has these is because of the sky walks over the streets. The expansion joints allow the entire building to move together and prevents cracking.”
