Greenhouse Made of Uranium Glass

Artist Victor Engbers built a greenhouse for the Amsterdam Light Festival out of uranium glass. The glass has a nice green tinge, but glows radiantly under a blacklight. Yes, it does contain a little uranium. It's been used mainly for dishes, and was particularly popular during the 19th century and early 20th century, but this is the first time anyone's used it for windows.
See more pictures of the greenhouse in this Facebook album, including the inside of it. The house will be on display at the festival until January 8.

An In-N-Out Manager Reveals The Chain's Secrets

Did you know an In-N-Out manager can earn up to $350,000 a year? Or that each location has a secret secret menu that no one can order but the employees? These are just a few of the fascinating things you can learn from this Thrillist article revealing secrets about the chain from a manager. In case you're wondering, he suggests that the best burger you can order at the restaurant is the double-single, two burger patties, one slice of cheese, chopped chilies, chopped onions, and one tomato slice. The bun gets a spiral of mustard and a squeeze of lemon juice.
It's worth mentioning that in another Thrillist article, they make a pretty compelling argument that being a manager at In-N-Out is better than being a lawyer. They have some good points, you can make similar money, you don't need to pay for college and In-N-Out not only offers killer benefits but also sends managers and their spouses on vacations to international destinations every year.Even if you don't want to work at In-N-Out, you can still learn the inside secrets in this Thrillist article.

The Biggest Mistake in the History of Science

What Happens When You Tickle A Rat?

Rats are used for all kinds of scientific experimentation, and many rats have given their lives so that scientists can figure out how to cure diseases, test theories and generally help mankind live longer and better.
But the rat in this video posted by National Geographic hit the jackpot, because he's the subject of an experiment on tickling!
