We tried KFC's new Nashville Hot Chicken and Waffles and found it blows the regular version out of the water
Erin McDowell/Business Insider When we heard that KFC was set to launch a brand new version of their iconic Chicken and Waffles, we knew we had to get our hands on the spicy new addition. Not only were we impressed by the juicy, perfectly crispy chicken, but we were pleasantly surprised by the manageable spiciness of the Nashville hot oil. The meal truly came together, however, with the addition of a sweet, fluffy Belgian-style waffle drenched in maple syrup.  It was fast food at its finest, and we savored every last bite. Sign up for Business Insider's retail newsletter, The Drive-Thru, to get more stories like this in your inbox. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Why have plain chicken and waffles, when you could have chicken and waffles with an extra kick? Fans of KFC's chicken and waffles will be pleased to know that on November 18 spicy versions of the meal will be arriving in locations nationwide for a limited time. While KFC has been selling its Nashville Hot Chicken since January 2016, this marks the first time that patrons will be able to taste it alongside Belgian-style waffles. Meals come in multiple options: a waffle sandwich, a three-piece tender meal, or a basket including one breast, two-piece thigh, and a drumstick. The Nashville Hot Chicken can also come as part of KFC's Big Basket meal deal. When we first heard about the launch of KFC's new Nashville Hot Chicken and Waffles meals, we knew we had to get our hands on the waffle combos ourselves. Here are our thoughts on KFC's lineup of sweet, savory, and spicy new items.Looking at the spread of crispy chicken breasts, thighs, drumsticks, and fillets, our mouths began to water. Everything looked and smelled fresh out of the fryer. Erin McDowell/Business Insider The tenders with Nashville hot oil were truly elevated. Erin McDowell/Business Insider The breast, thigh, and drum basket also impressed — what could be better than a crispy drumstick doused in spicy oil and maple syrup?

The 'cats can have little a salami' meme is the best kind of meme
Cats can, famously, have little a salami. But can cats really have little a salami? The "cats can have little a salami" meme is the best kind of meme: a single sentence applied to every possible post like a gorgeous, nonsensical chorus. (See: "They did surgery on a grape.")  The phrase comes from a typo in a blog post called "Can My Cat Eat Salami," which was published in 2017 by San Diego-based salami and sausage company The Meatmen. (The business is no longer in operation.) Instead of writing "Cats can have a little salami," as we're sure was the intent, this is what the author went with: Image: The Meatmen Read more...More about Twitter, Memes, Cats, Social Media, and Culture

Antikondo: Orderliness is not the same as efficiency
Often, if you ask a human to optimize something, they'll make it orderly: straight lines, simple layouts and clean divisions, but when nature (or evolutionary algorithms) optimizes things, it produces redundancy, gradients, tangles, and complexity -- ironically, robots produce systems that look like nature designed them, while humans produce systems that look like robots designed them. In an essay called The Efficiency-Destroying Magic of Tidying Up, Uber product manager Florent Crivello lays out a thesis about the value of complexity, a subject that will be familiar to readers who enjoyed Tim Harford's 2016 book "Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform Lives." Crivello suggests a three-part test that "messy" systems should be subjected to before anyone attempts to tidy them: 1. How much information is contained in the system’s current state? What constraints are expressing themselves through it? 2. How old is the system? How malleable is it? How strong are the forces put on it? 3. Finally: who is complaining about the chaos? Finally: who is complaining about the chaos? If outsiders complain, but people living inside the system seem happy with it, it probably means that the chaos is serving them right, and that it’s just foreign eyes who are unable to perceive its underlying order. This is a special case of Chesterton’s Fence, which states you should never take down a fence before knowing why it was put up. Here, I propose Scott’s Law: never put order in a system before you understand the structure underneath its chaos. Read the rest

34 of the most dangerous things science has strongly linked to cancer
Elaine Thompson/AP All cancers are a result of damage or genetic mutations in our DNA. But the many reasons individual cancer cases pop up in people are complex: Some are genetic and passed down from one generation to the next, and others are a result of things in our environment that we inhale, eat, or use. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Cancer is the second-most-common cause of death in the United States, after heart disease. It fundamentally affects the way our cells grow and divide, changing them in perverse ways. All cancer is a result of damage or genetic mutations in our DNA. The debilitating class of diseases spreads through a body like an invading army as toxic cells grow relentlessly into unruly tumors. Some cases of cancer are out of our control, determined by genetic defects and predispositions passed down from one generation to the next, or spurred by genetic changes we undergo through our lifetime. But we also know that breathing in certain substances, eating specific things, and even using some kinds of plastics ups the risk of developing some deadly cancers. Here are some known carcinogens — cancer-causers — and a few more things that scientists are zeroing in on as prime suspects.Sugar Shutterstock Scientists now know that eating too much sweet stuff can not only lead to diabetes but actively damage your cells and increase your risk of developing cancer. But that's not all. New research suggests that sugar may fuel tumor growth in the body because cancer loves to use sugar as fuel. "The hyperactive sugar consumption of cancerous cells leads to a vicious cycle of continued stimulation of cancer development and growth" Johan Thevelein, a Belgian molecular biologist, said in October after the release of his study. Scientists say that the groundbreaking research gives us a better understanding of how sugar and cancer interact and that it could one day help create targeted diet strategies for patients. NOW WATCH: The differences that matter between Splenda, Equal, Sweet'N Low, and sugar >> Processed foods Shutterstock Any food that comes in a crinkly plastic wrapper, is industrially sealed, and is designed to last for months without spoiling may be a quick on-the-go fix for a hunger pang, but it's also likely increasing your risk of cancer. Scientists in France recently zeroed in on a link between people who eat more processed foods and those who develop cancer. They're not sure yet whether the problem is the shelf-stabilizing ingredients, the plastic packaging, or some combination of the two. And because their study was correlative, it's possible there's some other hidden factor at work. NOW WATCH: I ate nothing but 'healthy' fast food for a week >> Smoking arvin febry / Unsplash Though the tobacco industry tried to cover this one up, we've known for years that tobacco smoke contains at least 70 cancer-causing chemicals. And it's not just smokers who are affected: People who inhale secondhand smoke can develop deadly forms of cancer too. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says: "Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke at home or at work increase their risk of developing lung cancer by 20-30%." People who chew tobacco are at increased risk, too. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Tech giants like Google and Amazon are beefing up their healthcare strategies.

Watch the moment Kim Kardashian realized 'Kimono' was an offensive name for her shapewear line, a mistake that cost $10 million to fix
E! On Sunday's episode of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Kim Kardashian West is seen dealing with backlash after she announced her new shapewear brand in June. The brand was originally named Kimono, a traditional Japanese garment, which lead to accusations of cultural appropriation. In one scene, Kardashian West tells Scott Disick that her company would lose $10 million if they changed the name. "In a perfect world, if I could just say, 'Let's change the name,' and it would be that easy, then I would do it in a heartbeat," she said. The beauty mogul apparently changed her mind when the mayor of Kyoto, Daisaku Kadokawa, wrote an open letter urging her to rename her brand.  "I definitely want to take this really seriously," Kardashian West said on "KUWTK." "Reading that letter, I felt an understanding." Watch the episode recap, including her realization, below.

If you wait until Black Friday, you may miss out on these deals
TL;DR: Smartwatches and fitness trackers from brands like Apple, Samsung, Fitbit, and Garmin are on sale at Walmart and Amazon ahead of Black Friday. In case you haven't noticed, this year's Black Friday sale-a-thon falls unusually late in November. (Nov. 29, to be exact.) That may seem like nothing more than a fun bit of trivia, but it's actually pretty important if you care about saving money. Since retailers have some extra time to build up hype for their holiday sales, early-bird shopping has almost never been better. Case in point: Amazon and Walmart are both currently offering tons of discounts on dozens of smartwatches and fitness trackers made by brands like Apple, Samsung, Fitbit, and Garmin — discounts so good, it's possible that some models may sell out before Black Friday finally gets here.

I drove Arcimoto’s bizarre electric three-wheeler through New York City traffic
Photo by Andrew Hawkins / The Verge Arcimoto CEO Mark Frohnmayer has one rule for driving his hot-off-the-production-line electric three-wheeler: “Do not crash the FUV into the other FUV.” FUV stands for “fun utility vehicle,” which is the name of the delightfully weird electric vehicle.

My first thought was that it was a dad joke gone too far, but Frohnmayer corrects me: his own mother came up with the name. “Do not crash the FUV into the other FUV” It’s a brisk November afternoon in New York City, and I’m driving a red FUV, with Frohnmayer seated behind me.

'Shine On with Reese' on Netflix is soothing female empowerment TV
Some watch The Office reruns to unwind. Others get lulled into the shiplap-covered wonderworld of HGTV. As for me, I spent a lovely weekend bingeing Netflix's Shine On with Reese, an Oprah-esque talk show starring Reese Witherspoon that is perfect soothing female empowerment TV. Shine On originally aired on DirecTV last year, but became streamable on Netflix earlier this month. Each roughly 20-minute episode features Witherspoon meeting up with a powerful woman in a specific industry and talking to her about her path to success, the hurdles they overcame, and how they got where they are today. Every story reliably follows the same formula, much like the calming haze of Queer Eye, and you know you're going to get a sweet happy ending. The Hollywood episodes have bold-faced names you probably love — Dolly Parton! Ava DuVernay! — but the ones outside The Industry are equally fascinating.  Read more...More about Netflix, Reese Witherspoon, Entertainment, and Movies Tv Shows

The CIA reportedly worked with an Iraqi informant code named “Donnie Brasco,” who feared for his life and ultimately defected to Iranian intelligence
REUTERS/Lucas Jackson Iranian intelligence officers have used financial incentives and gifts to lure away Iraqi spies formerly working for the CIA, according to a new trove of leaked documents reported on jointly by The Intercept and The New York Times. The first section of the Intercept's five-part report offers both extremely sophisticated examples of intelligence implicating top Iraqi officials and clumsy tales of operations gone wrong. One of the top political advisers to the speaker of the Iraqi Parliament may have been an Iranian spy, leaked cables show. Iranian intelligence reportedly tried to recruit Iraqi CIA informants with gold after the US withdrew its  troops in 2011. Iranian intelligence reportedly tried to elaborately break into a German cultural institute only to realize they had brought the wrong keys to unlock a safe. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. American and Iranian intelligence officers have been conducting a just below the surface espionage war in Iraq, and Iran has a strong upper hand. In many cases, spies who once worked for the United States have defected and joined divulged information to Iran in exchange for safety, money, and gifts. That's according to a series of leaked Iranian intelligence documents that were anonymously sent to the Intercept who shared them with The New York Times. The two media sites jointly released reports describing the contents of the documents today.

This abandoned hotel in Croatia was once so luxurious that its swimming pool was reportedly filled with champagne. Here's what it looks like today.
Tor Lindstrand When the Haludovo Palace Hotel opened in the 1970s, it was one of the most luxurious vacation spots in former Yugoslavia. Bob Guccione, the owner of Penthouse magazine, invested $45 million into the resort, allowing it build a glamorous casino.  Penthouse "pets" served guests champagne, lobster, and endless caviar. But the hotel fell into financial trouble less than a year after opening. The whole resort eventually closed around 1991 when civil war broke out. Today it is completely abandoned, furniture has been stolen, and windows are smashed. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In the summer of 1972, the Haludovo Palace Hotel on Krk, Croatia, opened its doors to the wealthiest of the west. Hostesses known as "pets" served endless supplies of champagne, caviar, and lobsters to guests as they sunbathed under the sun, and the owner of "Penthouse" magazine poured $45 million into the resort to build a casino. But a year later and suffering from a lack of foreign visitors, it faced financial struggles. The Haludovo Palace Hotel toned down its extravagance and continued hosting guests until civil war broke out in 1991. Suddenly, the entire resort was filled with refugees and every last appliance and piece of furniture was stolen. While the hotel's foundation is still intact, there have been no plans to redevelop it. What was once an extravagant getaway in the '70s is now an eerie shell of a resort. Keep scrolling to look at what remains of this once opulent vacation spot.The Haludovo Palace Hotel opened its doors in the summer of 1972 in former Yugoslavia. Google Maps The Haludovo Palace Hotel was built in the Croatian town of Malinska on the island of Krk, just south of the mainland. It was directly across from Venice and quickly became a premier destination for warm weather, beautiful rocky beaches, and luxury cuisine.  Unlike other Eastern European countries under Soviet rule, Yugoslavia had laws that allowed for foreign investments in casinos and gambling. Harry Dempster/Daily Express/Getty Images The catch was that only foreign tourists could take part in gambling, not Yugoslavian residents. This placed increased pressure on casinos to attract wealthy westerners. Bob Guccione, the founder of "Penthouse," an adult-themed magazine, pounced at the opportunity to expand his brand into hospitality. Ted Thai/The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images He threw $45 million at the Haludovo Palace Hotel and it opened the Penthouse Adriatic Club, which included a casino.
