The people who run Minnesota's Mall of America say they're going to build an even bigger one in the Miami area as part of its expansion project.
The Miami Herald says the mega-mall called "American Dream Miami" would include submarines, miniature golf, a water park, a skating rink, a Legoland, sea lions and even an indoor ski slope (with 800 feet of artificial powder). And when it's finished, it'd be the largest mall in the United States.
The parent company, called Triple Five, also has another "American Dream" complex planned for Northern New Jersey, which would also include an indoor domed amusement park with a roller coaster, a water park and a Ferris Wheel.

Small town, small people:
What's the best way to warm up a baby cow? No, it's not a joke. The answer? Take it in a hot tub!
A farmer in Illinois found a calf, barely breathing, in a snow bank on his farm. One of his cows had given birth in the frigid cold in a field and the poor baby's body temp dropped like a rock. The farmer grabbed the calf, who he's named Leroy, and jumped fully clothed with him into his backyard hot tub. He then wrapped him in electric blankets and nursed him back to health. Leroy's hottubbing days are over, but his sunbathing days are just about to begin! (Myers)
