World’s First Naked Restaurant Is Opening in London And The Demand Is Enormous

Over 23,000 people are already on the waitlist for tickets.

Those “no shirt, no shoes, no service” signs won’t be posted anywhere near The Bunyadi, a new London-based pop-up restaurant scheduled to open for three months starting this June. In fact, the new establishment plans to become the city’s first-ever clothing-optional dining experience.

“Enter a secret Pangea-like world,” its website boasts, “free from phones, electric lights and even clothing (optional) and revisit the beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.”


Toting itself as “London’s naked restaurant,” The Bunyadi is named after a Hindi term meaning “fundamental” “base” or “natural.” Sebastian Lyall, the brains behind the restaurant, explains in an interview that the restaurant will be designed to allow its patrons to experience true liberation. According to Lyall, “We are creating an atmosphere inside the restaurant, where if you feel comfortable, you can take your gown off.”

To enhance the natural dining experience, the restaurant also guarantees liberation from technology. “We all get bothered by phones coming out and people on their phones while eating, so you can’t bring any kind of technology inside.”

The patrons won’t be the only naked things naked inside the restaurant. Lyall explains that guests will be served “naked food” that will be homegrown and free from preservatives, added colors, and chemicals. The restaurant will also utilize “edible cutlery” and will be devoid of plastic, metal, and any appliances that require electricity or gas.

For those who want to experience the trend but are feeling shy about baring it all, the restaurant will also include a non-naked section. But for guests seeking the full experience, gowns, lockers and a changing room will be provided.

If dining au naturel appeals to you, you had better sign up quickly. As of writing, over 26,080 people are already on the waitlist for tickets and the number seems to be growing rapidly.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
