Chinese man builds mountain on top of apartment
Daily Mail: A Chinese man has spent six years building his dream mountaintop villa - on top of a Beijing apartment block.
Eccentric Professor Zhang Lin shifted tons of rubble and rock onto the roof of the building to construct the outrageous home which looks like it has been carved from a mountainside.
Mr Lin could now be ordered to tear down his mountain penthouse if it is deemed unsafe.
'It has come to our attention that Professor Zhang did not apply for permission for this structure. So unless he can prove it is safe, it will have to come down,' explained an city official.

People pay money for outside chance of never seeing family ever again

  • 100k+ the number of people that have paid money for the chance to go to Mars, without hope of ever coming back. They’ve applied for the Mars One project which will pick four of those people to leave and never come home in 2022.
  • $38 the amount it costs U.S. residents to have an outside chance of leaving home and never seeing family and friends ever again. The private project apparently has appeal, because 30,000 of them have signed up. source

The New Breakfast Taco: The Los Angeles Times reports Taco Bell will soon be increasing the number of stores offering the waffle taco that the company launched in southern California earlier this year. Taco Bell’s new waffle taco has apparently become the top-selling breakfast item at all five locations where it’s currently offered, and will soon be offered at an additional 100 stores in Fresno, Omaha and Chattanooga. Personally, we’ll be sticking to Popeye’s for our fast-food waffle fix. Chicken and waffles on-the-go? Yes, please. source

Did the new Crossfire start?

I imagine, as this panel discussion takes place, Jeff Zucker is in his lair at the CNN studios in Atlanta, rigidly stroking a Chihuahua, wondering how his plan to ruin cable news is going.

Today in weird trades: Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers may have led his team to a ton of success over the past nine years, but as a rebuilding period lingered, it was clear he was raring to go. The L.A. Clippers were interested, even. One problem: Rivers was still under contract. Solution? He’s essentially getting traded for a draft pick, a rare move for a coach. The crazy part? They wanted to trade him along with star player Kevin Garnett, but that deal got nixed.
