Tweet of the Day: Shaquille O’Neal took to his Twitter mere moments ago to announce his retirement from basketball after 19 years in the NBA.

“I want to thank you very much,” he tells his Twitter followers in a linked video, “that’s why I’m telling you first: I’m about to retire.”

Via his Twitter tonight, KiD CuDi unveiled the first sample of the music he and longtime producer/friend Dot Da Genius have been working on. As you may know, the two have officially joined forces for CuDi’s next album, which will be of the rock n’ roll genre.

This brings “you snooze, you lose” to a whole new level! Having problems when it comes to waking up in the morning? You know what they say, “time is money”. The “Shredder Clock” wants to ensure that none of your time is wasted, as it will begin shredding whatever currency you put in, if the alarm does not get manually shut off immediately.

Simple and effective, the Shredder Clock will actually shred whatever you put in there from homework, to-do lists, etc. So make sure you really need to wake up when you put a $100 bill in there because there’s no snooze button.

Shia LaBeouf — who’s apparently a music video director now? — provides the visuals for Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon II cut, “Marijuana.”

28-year-old Jeff Gurwin commissioned Bronx-based muralists TATS CRU to create “the world’s most creative marriage proposal” for his girlfriend Caitlin on a wall in the East village.

Sure, this has been done before, but so what? It’s just as romantic the second time around. Why can’t you just be happy for them? Is it because you hate love? It is, isn’t it? Well, get over yourself. Love is awesome.

Over 200 retired Japanese professionals — dubbed the Skilled Veterans Corps — have volunteered to help bring stability to the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The volunteers — all over 60 years old — are lobbying the government to be allowed to replace some of the younger employees at the power station. “I am 72 and on average I probably have 13 to 15 years left to live,” says 72-year-old Yasuteru Yamada, a former engineer. “Even if I were exposed to radiation, cancer could take 20 or 30 years or longer to develop. Therefore us older ones have less chance of getting cancer.”

Though grateful, both the government and TEPCO remain tentative about accepting the senior citizens’ offer. “It is on the way but it is a very, very sensitive issue politically,” Yamada told BBC News. Goshi Hosono, the prime minister’s special adviser to the nuclear crisis, controversially referred to the group as the “suicide corps” during a recent press conference.

“I don’t think I’m particularly special,” Michio Ito, a retired primary school teacher, is quoted as saying. “Most Japanese have this feeling in their heart. The question is whether you step forward, or you stay behind and watch.”

My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name of, even after talking to meteorologists and astrophysicists I am none the wiser.What I am talking about I have decided to callThe Arctic Light and it is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun.

For its latest mission, Improv Everywhere sent 23 human agents and 2 canine agents to Prospect Park in Park Slope, Brooklyn, to confuse the hell out of strangers by pretending to be under the influence of a mute button.

Produced in partnership with the Guggenheim Museum as part of itsstillspotting nyc exhibition.
