Thanks to Swiss company Suitart, there is now a full bulletproof suit on the market. This Diamond Armor, which proudly displays its title of “most expensive custom tailored suit in the world,” is made with over 1,500 black diamonds and comes with a 24 carat gold silk tie.
It combines bulletproof technology from Croshield with the tailoring skills of Suitart (who mainly make fabric suits that are sadly neither diamond nor armor) to produce a suit that is both elegant and can protect you from small ballistics.

Upon arriving at Bustan, and as most modern New Yorker’s tend to do, we pulled out our iPhones and proudly checked into the recently opened Pan Mediterranean eatery. With this action, we were instantly offered a congratulatory reminder that it had been exactly 4 years since we had first joined FourSquare. In thinking back, we recalled that our first check in was at none-other than the acclaimed Barbounia in Gramercy. And knowing that Buston is brought to us by the same masters behind Barbounia we thought, "what a coincidence!" If Bustan was anything like Barbounia, the Upper West Side is surely in for a treat.

President Barack Obama will seemingly do anything to promote the Affordable Care Act and get young people to sign-up for Obamacare--even if it means appearing on Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns. The video, which was posted on the website Funny or Die, shows him putting up with Galifianakis’ awkward interviewing demeanor while answering random questions.
Although Galifianakis’ seemed to be tough on the President, he was able to get back at the comedian with some of his answers. For instance, when Galifianakis told President Obama he is not able to run for a third term, the President responded with, “Actually, I think it's a good idea. If I ran a third time it would be sort of like doing a third Hangover movie. Didn't really work out very well did it?”
