Ultra-Wealthy Population Hits Record High—Here's What They're Buying

There is the 1% and then there is the 0.004%—individuals whose net wealth is at least $30 million each. And here's a sobering newsflash: They're not just infinitely richer than you are, they're also multiplying. According to the just-published 2014 Wealth-X UBS World Ultra Wealth Report, the globe's richest adults grew by 6% last year. There are now 211,275 of them. So where are they hiding? About a third of the ultra-wealthy live in the U.S. (8,655 in New York City alone). Germany, Japan, the UK and China round out the top five wealthy hangouts and account for an additional see more

Jogg Jeans for The Pope!! @renzorosso customized @diesel jogg jeans for Papa Francesco. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 A photo posted by Nicola Formichetti (@nicolaformichetti) on Nov 11, 2014 at 2:33pm PST In his never-ending quest to be the Coolest Pope Ever, it looks like Papa Francisco may be retiring his white vestments in exchange for a pair of Diesel's Jogg jeans (skinny fit, low waist), at least according to Nicola Formichetti's Instagram. Who knows, while this is certainly an odd conceit, stranger things have happened—especially in the Bible. I'd just like to take a moment and kindly point out that I—with see more

New Study Finds You're All Eating Disgusting Food for Thanksgiving

The venerable Gray Lady has done a fun little study, mining Google searches for the oddball dishes that are popular in each state. The results, shown above, are, quite frankly, horrifying. Um, dear South Carolina, what the fuck is pineapple casserole? Turns out, it's cheese and pineapple chunks baked and scattered with buttered bread crumbs. I'm sorry, excuse me while I go violently upchuck for a few moments. And for those of you (myself included) tsk-tsk-ing the South, take a quick gander at Oregon. Vegan mushroom gravy? Shame on you, taking our turkey day and handing it over to meat-hating see more

New Website Will Help You Name Your Hipster-y Farm-to-Table Restaurant

Are you a Brooklyn resident but feel that your relationship with your neighborhood is so much more? Does your gluten-free heart only really feel at home on the slightly shabby yet ever-so-charming streets of your truly hip borough? Do you wear skinny jeans and scoop-neck tees and fedoras?

How Artists Are Reinventing the Pay Phone, Now That It's Obsolete

This week, New York City announced its plan to replace public pay phones with digital hubs called Links. Starting in 2015, the kiosks will offer free Wi-Fi, phone-charging stations, touchscreens for accessing directions and other services, advertising displays, and yes, free phone calls within the U.S. The disappearance of the pay phone, while inevitable, is also a little sad; it's been part of our streetscape for longer than most of us can remember. And even though smartphones have rendered them almost functionally defunct, over the past few years some New Yorkers have found cool, alternative uses for these outdated public see more

Three Grandmothers Smoking Weed for the First Time Is the Only Thing You Need to Watch Today

This video is pretty self-explanatory, but it's also just wonderful. These three women of a certain age allow film crews to capture their first pot-smoking adventure, and oh, what a glorious thing it is. While their first time stoned will bring you much joy, the best moment is when they're asked why they haven't indulged before. "I was a suburban housewife, and we had our cigarettes and our cocktails and we were happy," Ms. Purple Scarf says. Turns out, her life was already pretty vice-filled before she met Mary Jane. Anyway, enjoy the video above ... and there is see more

There Is a Website Whose Sole Purpose Is for You to Judge Beards

Appropriately enough, the website BeardDuel offers exactly what it says: the chance to compare two hirsute men's facial hair and declare a winner. Proud owners of chin-warmers merely need to tag a picture of themselves with #beardduel on social media to participate. Winners receive nothing except the a chance to show off their whiskers. If you have some time you desperately need to waste, we suggest doing it there. see more

Quiz: Is This an LSD Trip Gone Bad or a Music Video?

Officially speaking, below is the music video for Chinese performer Wang Rong Rollins' song "Chick Chick." Unofficially speaking, it's the most batshit-crazy thing we saw on the Internet today, and it feels like it's closer to the sweaty, feverish dream you have after eating bad seafood and reading Buzzfeed lists all day. Someone in the Details office called it aggressively joyous. We're just going to call it horrifying, bizarre, and completely fascinating. Watch it—we beg you to. see more
