The Sideshow
  • So you're at home in New York City watching the twins while your wife is visiting her brother in San Francisco. Six months later, you get divorced.

    You're making $43,000 a year when you split, and part of that goes to child support.

    A few years later, you're poking around the internet when you hop on your now ex-wife's LinkedIn page and, to your surprise, it says she's a first-round investor in Twitter, which made millionaires out of a lot of people when it went public on Nov. 7.

    Huh? When did she invest in Twitter?

    Ahhh, San Francisco.

    Jennifer Johnson (LinkedIn)Meet Stuart Strumwasser. According to the New York Post, he's suing his ex-wife, Jennifer Johnson, claiming she secretly invested between $10,000 and $50,000 in the social media giant, an investment that's now worth millions.

    From The Post:

    "Johnson secretly went to San Francisco to meet with her first ex-husband," Strumwasser’s Manhattan Supreme Court suit alleges.

  • Giant Louis Vuitton suitcase in Red Square (EPA/SERGEI ILNITSKY)

    Red Square has fallen to the capitalists. A giant Louis Vuitton suitcase is on display in the historic Moscow landmark, just steps away from Vladimir Lenin's tomb, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    The display, which stands several stories high — it is 100 feet long and 30 feet high — is part of a temporary Louis Vuitton travel exhibition that will run from early December to mid-January.

    Lenin, for those who failed 20th-century world history, was the leader behind Russia's Bolshevik Revolution. He died in 1924, but his mummified remains have been on display in a mausoleum in Red Square. 

    Already, some Russian politicians are questioning how something so commercial as designer luggage could be displayed so close to the remains of Lenin.
