Los Angeles Police Department officers found themselves in a rather awkward situation at the Robotoki video game developer studio after an employee accidentally hit their security system's "armed threat" panic button. The office just happened to have a life-sized statue of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 character Simon "Ghost" Riley on display by the entrance, armed with a menacing-looking mock assault rifle. When police arrived on the scene and noticed the gun-wielding figure, they immediately stormed the building in a tense 15-minute standoff. After realizing the effigy was not a threat, the police reportedly left the building while laughing at the absurd incident.
Who knew taking selfies could get so dangerous?

This may be the most expensive penis graffiti in the history of humanity. NASA's twin exploration rovers Spirit and Opportunity accidentally drew what appears to be a large phallus during their 10km-plus exploration on the surface of Mars. The discovery was first made yesterday by Redditor radioactive_toy in a post submitted to the /r/pics subreddit, which quickly reached the frontpage and temporarily brought down the NASA web server as a result of the "Reddit Effect."
