    The Lake Monsters of America
    Look at all the lake monsters on this map! The full map at Atlas Obscura has a legend of its own, to explain the different types of monsters. There are serpents (like Nessie), giant fish monsters, monstrous turtles, and even a cephalopod or two...
    "A 1923 eyewitness account of the monster of Alkali Lake in Nebraska reported that the single-horned alligator-esque creature let out a "dreadful roar" from the water. Described as 40 feet long with a horn like a rhinoceros, as well as an atrocious smell that is near fatal in itself, it's apparently a very hungry creature and devours anything in its path. Mostly this has been livestock. Sightings peaked in the 1920s, but have since faded, so perhaps Alkali Lake, now called Walgren Lake, is free from its fearsome, smelly unicorn beast."

    Vincent Kartheiser has a suspended bed
    Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser has all he needs in his compact, 580-square-foot Hollywood abode. Designed by Funn Roberts, the cabin was designed with a “Japanese-industrial” look in mind. This house really has everything one would need, including open shower space, a patio and even a suspended bed. I like the bed. A 300 lb weight keeps the bed down.

    Pengallan  s Genius Gloves look cool
    From Stephanie Rosenbloom's New York Times review.
    Pengallan's Genius Gloves were introduced last year and are hand made in Italy of kid leather and lined with cashmere.
    The thumb and index fingers on both hands flip back so that you can use a touch screen device.
    Sure, there are iPhone and smart-touch gloves that allow you to operate your phone or tablet without taking them off.
    But as Jason Tsou, the founder of Pengallan, likes to point out, his leather gloves can be used with the new iPhone 5's Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
