Tipping Made Easy

Tipping is a confusing practice, usually because you’re never quite sure who you’re supposed to tip, when, and how much. This infographic from Wait But Why shows what most people do, and what’s expected at different establishments.

waitbutwhy.com

This infographic, sourced from the actual people who get tipped (waiters, cab drivers, and so on), is an interesting look into what most people do and what’s generally expected. None of these are exactly hard and fast rules—and keep in mind they’re New York City-based numbers—but if you’ve always wondered whether it’s as important to tip a hotel bellman as it is a waiter, or how much, a quick glance at this will give you a good idea. Be sure to read lifehacker’s complete guide to tipping for a more detailed list and recommendations, too.

Famous Album Covers Join Google Street View

Let’s take a moment and reflect back on our own favorite band and what their most quintessential photo for us would be. The majority of us are probably skimming through our self-stored, memory-photo books and see our favorite band’s famous album cover. Album covers to some fans are works of art, maybe even hung in frames and appreciated for years to come. Huge fans may even want to visit that eminent location where the cover was actually shot.  Well, people you are in luck today. The Guardian cleverly put together a collection of classic album covers with Google Street View, “by overlaying album covers from times past onto current-day Google Street View locations of the places those album cover photographs were taken.” What’s awesome is that if you don’t see your favorite band below, you can always create your own with Google Street View . This makes it possible for all fans from all bands – to visit that one legendary location they saw on that photograph, and from the convenience of your home. However, if we should be so lucky, we ought to get out in the world and visit that quintessential memory.

Here are some favorites. Enjoy the trip.

The World’s New Tallest Ferris Wheel

It is no secret that the tallest animal in the world is the giraffe. It is recorded in the Guinness World Records that the tallest living person in the world is Sultan Kosen. The world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, was just celebrated in 2010 for it’s noteworthy tallness. Man-made or not, everyone seems to keep record/celebrate of who or what is the tallest in the world. So… it is no surprise that ambitious designers/inventors grew a sense of competition for wanting to create the ‘tallest” of tall landmarks. From that very competitive nature, George Washington Gale Ferris presented in 1983 at the Chicago’s World Fair the world’s first/tallest Ferris wheel. However, this was short lived when in 1895 the title of world’s tallest Ferris wheel was passed on to the Great Wheel- built in Court London. The passing of the “tallest” Ferris wheel title has been given away at a total of 9 times. It may not seem like a huge turn around, however much in-depth work goes into constructing these latest status symbols. I couldn’t imagine the planning that goes along with a gigantic wheel that endures such unique stresses on it.

Ferris Wheel

CNN.com has noticed the very impressive collections of Ferris wheels around the world and put together a list of the most amazing Ferris wheels. What prompted this article was due to the opening of the new world’s tallest Ferris wheel- The High Roller in Las Vegas. The 550-foot tall High Roller opened to the public on March 31, 2014 beating out the Singapore Flyer in Singapore, at a height of 541 feet. The High Roller might have now set a new height record, that is, until New York or Dubai catch up: both have unveiled plans for flashy waterfront Ferris wheels. Live it up now High Roller because the competition is coming.

The Best Walking Cities in the U.S.

National Walking Day was yesterday and “Americans were encouraged to lace up their sneakers and take at least 30 minutes out of their day to get up and walk.” However, if you were unaware of yesterday’s walking-fest do not fret; Conde Nest Traveler has compiled a list of their “favorite cities to explore on foot.” Allow this list to inspire you, to get out there and treat every day like National Walking Day. Check this awesome list out below.

1. Bentonville, Arkansas- Wal-Mart is no longer the only reason to visit the small-town Arkansas HQ of the global retailer. The 2011 opening of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has reshaped the center of this very walkable village, where restaurants and cafes now surround what locals simply call The Square. —Paul Brady

2. Lahaina, MauiHistoric Lahaina, an old whaling village on the west coast of Maui, is perfect for strolling. Located right on the ocean, Front Street is filled with charming vintage boutiques, restaurants, cafés, and even a library. —Krisanne Fordham

3. Austin, Texas- April is the perfect time to explore Austin on foot—wait too much longer and the city’s sweltering heat will send you right back indoors. On the north bank of the Colorado River, stroll West 2nd Street for upscale boutiques and al fresco dining. —Laura Carroll

South Congress Avenue Richard Cummins/CORBIS

4. New York City- NYC is all about its neighborhoods, and the best way to explore them is on foot. Sure, you will find great views from the High Line elevated railroad park and the waterside Brooklyn Promenade—and you will find bags worth of goodies along our best shopping streets (the West Village’s Bleecker and Hudson Streets, Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue, Park Slope’s Fifth Avenue). —Billie Cohen

5. Newport, Rhode Island- Most visitors to the City-by-the-Sea come to wander Cliff Walk (finally reopening June 13 after Hurricane Sandy renovations) and gawk at the island’s Gilded Age mansions, but few venture across the tracks, literally, to the historic Point District facing the elegant modern Gothic arches of the Newport Bridge.—David Jefferys

6. ChicagoThe best way to see Chicago’s beautiful architecture and to enjoy public spaces like Millennium Park is by foot. For a particularly scenic stroll, start at the landmark Water Tower, one of the few remaining buildings from the Great Chicago Fire.—Lianna Trubowitz

7. Palm Beach, Florida- Beaux-Arts mansions, palm-tree-lined boulevards, and pastel-colored storefronts—there’s nothing quite like a stroll around the 16-mile isle of Palm Beach.—Lindsay Talbot

The surprising history behind a beloved American pastime

Let’s just cut right to the chase. Pinball was banned in New York City between the early 1940s through the mid-1970s. It’s kind of unbelievable to think about it now, but it’s true. A pastime that is so near and dear to many children’s “gaming” hearts was once declared illegal. New York Mayor at the time, Fiorello La Guradia fought that: Pinball was a game of chance, not skill and so it was a form of gambling. Also, it was believed that pinball was mafia-ran, causing an uproar for many.  In New York, the pinball ban was executed in a particularly dramatic fashion. It was said that the “NYPD held prohibition style raids on pinballs”. Let me help you imagine how it went down, “thousands of machines were rounded up in a matter of days, before being dramatically smashed…and then dumped into the city’s rivers.” (It hurts even more to know that the rivers were the real victims here.)

pinball

However, like me and you know, this ban didn’t last forever and it is all thanks to a man named Roger Sharpe. The plan was to show in a city council meeting that pinball was in fact a game of skill. Roger Sharpe showed that by playing the most “intense” pinball game in history and winning it. This was more than just a win of a game but a win for all who admire this silver balled beloved pastime. And for that, my childhood self-salutes you, Mr. Roger Sharpe.

For the love of baseball

With Opening Day behind us now and the 2014 MLB season in full swing.

The world has many things to thank New Jersey for

The world has many things to thank New Jersey for. Thanks in part to George Washington’s victories here, America’s revolution was successful and we’re an independent country. Both Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison conducted their work here and the world has them to thank for modern electricity and recorded movies and music. However, their greatest innovations are by far breakfast related and Trenton is throwing a festival to celebrate that.

The whole concept of the breakfast sandwich is believed to have originated in New Jersey in the early 1900s and now you can get a breakfast sandwich seemingly anywhere in the country. The (Canadian) bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich that McDonalds calls an Egg McMuffin can trace its origins back to New Jersey, long before their first restaurant opened in California in 1940. While the concept of the breakfast sandwich has spread across the world thanks to big chain restaurants, there is one breakfast sandwich that remains strictly a local delicacy to the Garden State: the Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese. That sandwich is a staple of diners and delis all across the state yet when one crosses the Hudson or the Delaware it is nowhere to be found and that is precisely what is going to be celebrated the most at the state capital this May. Also if you’re not a Jersey native, be sure to get one if you ever pass through the state. You’ll be glad you did.
