21. Well, if you're on Long Island & Rothman's Dept. Store still exists ...

You might be in luck:

The next day, Einstein came into the Rothman’s Department Store himself looking for “sundials.” Or so Rothman thought and he dutifully showed him the one he had in the backyard. Einstein pointed to his feet. He really needed sandals, so Rothman sold him the largest pair he had left: women’s size 11. Einstein, who’d described himself in a letter to a friend as “a kind of ancient figure known primarily for his non-use of socks and wheeled out on special occasions as a curiosity,” gladly wore them all summer, along with a pair of shorts tied around his waist with a piece of rope, and a white sports shirt.

6. Love the leisure suits on the Star Trek crew-ah, fashion!

(and a reminder that I am allergic to those "little polyesters.")

17. After seeing it, I could tell why they changed the design.

That original design would have scared the patooties out of the kiddies.

20. Very interesting photos.

The one of Hitler is pretty eery. Not to mention the one of Ronald Mcdonald!! Why in the name of Mike does he have four eyebrows??!! Why does he have a cup over his nose? Why does he have a box filled with Teddy bears on his head and what appear to be french fries growing out of his abdomen??!! What evil is this creature??!!

Meanwhile, the Tasmanian tiger looks kinda prehistoric and the range of his jaws is quite frightening!
