Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Ruddy-faced political conspiracy nut Glenn Beck and ill-fitting-pant-swaggering pop star Justin Bieber might not seem to have a lot in common, and they probably don’t — except for one thing: They are both crazy. When you strip away their vocations, Beck’s unwavering antics and Bieber’s increasingly erratic behavior seem hilariously similar. To test this theory — and your knowledge of crazy — take our quiz to figure out which celebrity did which crazy thing:
1. Announced that he had news that will “rock the nation” and then didn’t announce anything in particular.
2. Walked around town wearing a gas mask “as a joke.”
3. Peed in a mop bucket.
4. Interviewed himself about himself.
5. Abandoned his pet monkey.
6. Attempted to auction off “Obama in Pee Pee Jar.”
7. Allegedly spit on his neighbor’s face.
8. Imagined himself as the Man in the Moon.
9. While visiting the Holocaust Museum, said that Holocaust victim Anne Frank would have been a fan of his.
10. Nearly caused a state of emergency in Norway.
11. On evolution, said: “I don’t think we came from monkeys. I think that’s ridiculous. I haven’t seen a half-monkey, half-person yet.”
12. Screamed “Fuck Bill Clinton!”
13. Is a future astronaut.
Bieber: 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13
Beck: 1, 4, 6, 8, 11 (and probably 12 at some point too)

NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins
On December 28, 2013, Expedition 38 crew member Mike Hopkins participating in the second of two space walks to replace a degraded pump module on the International Space Station. (NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio is reflected in his helmet!)
The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
