What makes a city crazy? The Daily Beast thinks it’s found a scientific(ish) method for figuring that out– by looking at the number of psychiatrists per capita as well as survey data on drinking and stress. Our own Mike Barish contributed to the list, which includes hard-to-believe factoids like…

- “Gamblers looking to make an apt political statement should visit Las Vegas’ Main Street Station Casino, where male patrons are invited to relieve themselves on a large chunk of the Berlin Wall.”
- A retired plumber from San Antonio named Barney Smith has a museum dedicated to his 600 decorated toilet seats.
