    Here's a cool website my buddy stumbled upon.
    It's called Humans of New York, and it features portraits of various eccentric and ordinary people, as well as what's in my opinion a more interesting section - stories.

    http://www.humansofnewyork.com/tagged/stories

    I've read a few of these stories so far and I thought I'd share them with you guys. There's some really interesting people out there.

    My favorite so far is the 'Chess Hustler.'

    Let me know what you think!

    What a great site. I had to bookmark it for later though as I could feel myself getting sucked in. Looking forward to having a better look at it this evening.

    Thanks.

    Yeah all of these stories are interesting. The portraits are cool too, but I like the more in-depth approach of the stories.

    My new favorite is 'The Boxer' - good stuff!

    'The Mad Scientist' is also great!

    That's probably my favorite. There's definitely more to it than a lot of the other ones.

    The Boxer and The Mad Scientist are my top 2 - so far!
