Katz's Delicatessen, the hundred-plus-year old Lower East Side deli in which the duo filmed an iconic scene back in 1989 is honoring the film's legacy with an entire month of When Harry Met Sally festivities.

... to Show the Other Side of the Church.
Okay, this is just kooky. Would you part with $3700 for a pair of rubber soled shoes (second entry)?
Well, several preachers are spending aplenty. Perhaps two multi-million dollar mansions and two private jets are not enough opulence (see Joel Osteen).

YUP | 1 Jon Stewart Lashes Out at Hearing on 9/11 Responders Bill: You Should Be Ashamed of Yourselves
Earlier today, Jon Stewart (born John Stuart Liebowitz) gave an emotional testimony to a congressional committee that was half empty.

Believe it or not, I have a friend in Maryland who went twice. For a short visit, it's actually safe. You are probably exposed to more radiation taking a coast to coast flight.

In 1939, at the age of thirty-five, Theodor Seuss Geisel was tinkering with an invention that was doomed to failure. Geisel had published a few books under the name Dr. Seuss, but he was hoping that a device he had patented, the Infantograph, would be a money-maker at the techno-utopian New York World’s Fair, which was opening that year. “If you were to marry the person you are with,” the banner that Geisel designed for his pavilion asked, “what would your children look like? Come in and have your INFANTOGRAPH taken!”

When the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor released his original plans for the new Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2013, the building was meant to resemble an inkblot, oozing across Los Angeles’s horizon like an enigmatic brushstroke. Planners had hoped it would do for LA what Frank Gehry’s sweeping, silver Guggenheim outpost had done for Bilbao, attracting tourism to the Spanish city in the 1990s. But in subsequent revisions, the dramatic, inky color of Zumthor’s original design became a flat beige (critics believed a black building would have been too difficult to keep cool), and a wing that was supposed to meander over the La Brea tar pits—the inspiration for Zumthor’s first design—was moved to an adjacent parking lot. The latest renderings show a building even shorter, and smaller, than before, straddling Wilshire Boulevard like a toll plaza. People have compared it to a coffee table and an Italian roadside restaurant. The whole project is estimated to cost a cool $650 million, nearly one-fifth of it coming from taxpayers.

The modified fungus was a highly effective mosquito killer in the first tests mimicking conditions in sub-Saharan Africa, where malaria remains a major public health problem, researchers reported Thursday in the journal Science.

It's a level where you don't have to touch the controller, but you only have a one in 7.5 million chance of actually making it to the end.
"For more than 12 hours now, my Wii U has been silently running underneath my desk. I’m not holding the controller, or taking note of what’s happening, but my Wii U is currently vying for a lottery ticket buried in Super Mario Maker, with a one in 7.5 million chance of it appearing. My reward? Beating a level that never requires the player to touch a button and yet, as of now, it’s been attempted more than 2.6 million times—and no one’s made it to the end."

Lake Baikal, in the Russian region of Siberia, is a massive body of water—the world’s deepest and most voluminous freshwater lake. Its location and the surrounding geography can lead to fascinating phenomena in the winter, as ferocious winds and cycles of melting and refreezing build and sculpt works of structural beauty—stones supported on wind-worn pedestals, undulating surface ice, encrusted beaches, crazy icicles, frozen methane bubbles, and more. Below, a collection of some interesting and beautiful images from the clear ice of Lake Baikal.

Whether its fashion, marketing, home decor, or any other subset of the design field, sometimes well-intentioned designs aren’t always perceived as the designer had intended. Here are some of our favorite and hilarious design fails from around the world that make us really appreciate the value of a second opinion. Enjoy!
