Good news! Everyone else on the street was gone when I got back to the car, and there were no dings or angry notes!

This spectacular structure was in use for barely 50 years before New York decided to raze it and sentence commuters to subterranean gloom, but this album will show you all the splendor of Penn Station in its heyday. I didn't have the heart to include the demolition pictures, so click through to the article if you want to see those.

Interesting topic provoked by someone in a private thread: who would you consider to be a genius?  Doesn't matter if they're living or dead, but you should be able to back up your answer if pressed.

My examples:
J.S. Bach
Vladimir Nabokov
Leonardo da Vinci
Bruce Lee

Some words translate different to peoples, on our planet.
One of the worst, in my opinion people like to play, is the self serving and delusional game...of tag.
Where you or I trade words, to each other, how true or great Americans, we might be...etc.
In my cynical opinion, it's all marketing hype. Somebody selling themselves, hoping you will buy.
Depending on the level played, it usually means money leaving your pocket and into theirs.

It's pretty neat to watch styles come and go and then come back into fashion.

Have you ever wanted to see all the ways a person could fall out of a hammock?  Of course you have.  Hope your day is going better than these people's!

Signal boost.  Any lawyers out there want to take on a police brutality case with documentation?
 
Please help make this go viral..my name is Stephan Harz last year I was a victim of police brutality. I had suffered a spinal cord injury and since had 4 surgeries on my spine..due to the injury to my back, I have had heart issues along with other issues. The police officer that attacked me did so AFTER I made a police report against him an ON the SAME day I had to go to court against him....
My medical costs have been very high and since this has happened...I have not been able to work much due to my back an health problems. I have been trying to find attorney who will help to take on this case but I keep hitting a dead end. I have proof of everything and documents ontop of documents with video/audio.
I hate asking for help..but I need help badly...
The photo is me at the ER having a heart failure after being rushed by ambulance.

Riding in this is probably the closest thing to going to the top of the Wall in Game of Thrones. Especially if you bring snow cones!
 
Throwback Thursday: Tallest outdoor elevator
Full story --> www.bit.ly/GWR-BailongElevator

Would you dare to ride this breathtaking elevator? First opened in 2002, the 326-m (1,070-ft) glass-sided Bailong ("Hundred Dragons") Elevator is built on the side of a quartzite cliff in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, China.

Made from filet mignon. Two ridiculously good flavors. This will change everything.

My favorite part about this is that the home I've been happily living in for the last 5 years is about half the size of the one discussed in this article!! SO entertaining, thanks!

Thought of the day: it would be great if instead of 1-hour interviews, companies "hired" potential workers for a week to see how well they actually perform in the company and at doing their jobs.  I feel like a lot of false negatives would be eliminated this way.  What do you think the advantages or disadvantages of a system like that would be?

+Connor Snedecor correct, I definitely don't think there is any one-size-fits-all approach to hiring for different positions with vastly different skill levels and requirements!  But I would also guess that the runners at your job aren't sitting through multiple interviews before being hired anyway, so we're already addressing different hiring structures.

Not only did they get my order wrong, but when I came back to get the missing item, they gave me the wrong thing (enchilada instead of a super burrito). Food quality was passable if you're craving Mexican, but was pretty mediocre otherwise. I will not be coming here again despite living within easy walking distance.

My experience here was absolutely top notch. I came in looking for a bonsai for my father and was greeted by the sweetest old couple who seem to run the place with their friendly dogs. The bonsai selection was fabulous, the prices are very reasonable, and they helped me find the perfect tree. Couldn't be happier!
