Today's May Day general strike, driven by the Occupy Wall Street movement and labor activists worldwide, included peaceful protests in Washington, D.C., and London, injured rioters in Oakland, widespread vandalism in Seattle, more than 30 arrests in New York, and regularly scheduled activism in Portland. Protest organizers said they intended to show the "1 percent" what life without the "99 percent" would look like, encouraging workers and students to take a day off in solidarity against income inequality and "unjust" corporate practices.

Obligatory of the (May) Day: Hey! It's the first of May! And you know what that means. Yes, a commemoration of the Haymarket massacre of 1886 in the form of solidarity with the workers of the world and their perpetual struggle for fairness and equality in the workplace, but -- more importantly -- outdoor f*cking starts today!

So bring your favorite lady (or at least your favorite lay).
