“It is small-minded to focus on the university buying a $200,000 table”

200k-conference-table

Right? Especially when you consider that this custom-made (in China), circular conference table seats 23 and features “data ports, microphones and an illuminated map of the world in a glass panel at its center.” It’s the centerpiece of the newly needed “world-class corporate meeting space” at the school. So what university would make such an extravagant purchase? Columbia? Yale? NYU? Nope. The school in question is none other than Kean University, a co-ed public school located in Northern New Jersey whose four year tuition totals something like $44,000. It’s destined to become a breeding ground for UN delegates, or at least James Bond villains.

You’ll survive though, because that’s what’s called “Living in New York” and being a misanthrope. But seriously, LET THE RICH BUILD US THINGS, they’re just spending their money to make your life better.

Never Miss A Beat…

best-urinal-ever

Pole Position Sports Bar in Tacoma, Washington is situated right next to a strip club called Fox’s. Since visitors are not allowed to drink in nudie bars in Washington State, the bathroom architects at Pole Position made a legendary move by adding a peephole above one of the urinals in the men’s restroom. Thereby enabling imbibing patrons to gaze straight into the flesh den, and in turn solidifying its status as one of the best bar bathrooms in the world.

Reaching almost 60,000 miles off the earth’s surface, transport time for humans and cargo up the space elevator will be roughly 7 days, which is really nothing at all in light years. According to the company, it is because of the development of carbon nanotechnology that “fantasy can now become a reality.” Bring down the mothership.
