The ridiculous, the ribald and the random
First up, Bloomberg's Max Abelson brings us the outrageous news that some ex-bankers are upgrading their lives with a Stradivarius-shaped pool. The Atlantic's Derek Thompson called it, "The most tasteful violin-shaped pool with chin-rest-shaped jacuzzi, and bow-shaped koi pond I've seen yet."
And while we're talking social media, WSJ's Katherine Rosman reports that Everyword (the Twitter feed of "every single word") is shutting down. Because we know you were wondering, Mashable's Seth Fiegerman helpfully added, "The two most popular words on Twitter, based on @everyword retweets: 'sex' and 'weed.'"
And in random trivia: "Wargames" was released 31 years ago today, featuring what is reportedly the first use of the word "firewall" in film history. Good to know!
