    Apropos of nothing, here's a church in town which has a tower out front that looks just like the Atari logo. https://goo.gl/maps/NcyvWs19XLu

    What does "Our Lady of Maytag" mean?
    I've always heard it referred to as the (2:00pm) Boob Church: http://cdn.funcheap.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/church-close-up-1024x7681-550x413.jpg

    Hallgrimskirkja (the Icelandic one) is even more impressive in context: it’s right at the top of a hill and the surrounding buildings are much smaller, so you can see it from miles away. Plus, there’s a statue of Leif Eriksson out front.

    And now I read that they built it that tall so it’d be taller than the rival cathedral. An awesome level of pettiness.

    Everything designed by Francisco Salamone has this alien construction feeling.

    The perfectly normal church my wife attended growing up in Muskegon, MI. Note the concrete slab cantilevered over the altar.

    Lord Vader, your wafer is ready.

    The Icelandic one has a statue of the most white Scandinavian Christ you have ever seen

    Always makes me think of Battlezone when I go past it.
