Go Here: Mütter Museum in Philadelphia

I tend to have a pretty short attention span at history museums, unless they are one of two thing: interactive, or disturbing. The Mütter Museum, a museum of medical history, is definitely the latter, and so it's thankfully not the former. You would not want to interact with the kind of twisted things they've got on display, but they sure are fun to look at.

Go Here: El Cosmico in Marfa, TX

Ever since I saw Baz Luhrmann's magical 1996 interpretation of 'Romeo and Juliet,' I've romanticized the idea of living in a weird desert trailer park. Now that I'm a grown up, the idea of permanent residence in one is slightly less appealing, but El Cosmico is a communal outpost in the deserts of West Texas that lets you pretend for the night.

Go Here: Centralia — Abandoned Mine Fire and Ghost Town in Pennsylvania

When people ask my why I won't watch horror movies, I tell them that I've never seen 'Silent Hill' because Centralia exists, and it's creepy enough.

Go Here: The Museum of the City of New York

Let me start by saying that I think the name of this museum sounds boring, too. I only found out that it was awesome because I was already in the neighborhood for something called 'Ice Derby,' which is a much better name but had unbeknownst to me been rescheduled. Don't worry, I'm still going to Ice Derby, and will report back, but instead I met a robot who smokes and plays records and I'm going to tell you about it.

Why Don’t We Have Faster-Than-Light Travel Yet?

Traveling faster than the speed of light is a popular concept in the world of most science fiction, but still very much fiction. So why is it that with all of the technological advancements that actual science has made over the last century is faster-than-light travel nowhere within our reach?

Video of Drunk Plane Passenger Restrained With Duct Tape Surfaces

Hey, remember this picture of the drunk guy on a flight from Iceland to New York City who had to be restrained with duct tape and zip ties? Allegedly he started screaming on the flight and tried to choke a fellow passenger after drinking a bottle of duty-free alcohol. The crew had to get a little...inventive to resolve the situation. Their solution certainly restrained him, but didn't do much to shut him up, as we now know, thanks to this video of him trying to scream through the duct tape over his mouth.

Go Here: Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo

Whenever I hear too much enthusiasm about something, I usually decide that it's exaggerated, and ignore 3/4 of it, on account of how mature and open-minded I am. When I heard that a tiny subway-stop sushi restaurant in Tokyo had the best sushi in the entire world, I scoffed. I'm a believer now. Sorry, Jiro.
