  • This photographer tracked down real life doppelgangers, and the results are as eerie as the notion of a doppelganger itself. (Visual News)
  • I want to get held over at one of these extra-schmancy airports some day. (Racked National)
  • Famous people being amusing—and also occasionally silly—on the topic of etiquette. (Flavorwire)
  • Did you guys follow this whole Batkid story in San Francisco? In which fulfilling a Make-A-wish child’s dream to become Batman for a day became a kind of  city-wide crusade, and the streets were full of crowds cheering Batkid on as the whole town became one big comic book adventure?  Thank God the world can be this good sometimes. (LA Times)
  • It’s a Breaking Bad alternate ending, people, and you will love that it exists.  (Slate)

    The whole Batkid production was so crazy wonderful. Made my day.

    Re the etiquette tips: okay, but *which* Swiss Army knife ought one to have?
    And, if one responds immediately to invitations, is it okay to say “maybe?”
    And if so, how soon before the party do you have to change to yes or no? Being in LA, I have a thing about trying to not ever not go somewhere where I said I would go. And this makes me hesitate to say “yes” to things, since I’m not into planning way ahead, and I really just don’t know yet. Doesn’t mean I don’t like you. And I’d really like to be polite. What to do?

    Re: the doppelgangers–wild stuff! My brother-in-law has one who’s a Dr. from his city (we saw Jim’s double when we were vacationing).
    Mine (from the past) was in a senior picture of my husband’s uncle’s class of 1925. It was like the end of The Shining!
    Otherwise I could be Mick Jagger’s kid sister (mixed feelings)!
