The soon-to-be-retired "arrivals" flipboard at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia ran on Windows 95 technology.

EDIT: And in waking up to the news of the death of former president George H.W. Bush, I learned that Mikhail Gorbachev was still alive...I thought he died a couple of years ago.

You need to be rich as shit (and sometimes even not living in Australia bc they don't post there) if you wanna buy robes from Journey. Better off just making them... but how?

Dan TDM is the richest Youtuber, worth $16 million. Those other particular online celebrities on Youtube you see in the news all the time? ... they're just a paltry 4th-7th place compared to him.

Is that money coming from YT videos and sponsorships directly or just a case of happening to win the lottery or something?

If you're going to mix Betty Crocker boxed cake mix by hand, you absolutely need to sift it first. And the icing? Don't just pile it in the middle of the cake hoping to be able to spread it. You need to swirl it on. In short? Just don't bother. Make a cake from scratch.
