      St. Sava Cathedral was conceived in 1895, but it's still not quite finished. For over a century, war, poverty, and the Communist Party prevented the cathedral's completion. It didn't help that it's one monumentally massive building.

      With an area of over 37,000 square feet, St. Sava is the largest Orthodox cathedral in the Balkans, and one of the largest in the world. The white granite and marble church was designed in Byzantine style, with the shape of the cross forming its base and four half-domes with 18 gilded crosses clustered around the large central dome.

      And large it is.

      Plated in copper and weighing in at 4,000 tons, the dome was built as a single piece on the ground, along with the 39-foot gilded cross that crowns it. The effort to raise and install the assembled dome and cross took 40 painstaking days to complete in 1989.

      With everything in place, the top of the main cross rises nearly 270 feet. And because it stands on the plateau where St. Sava's ashes were spread, 200 feet above the Sava River, the cathedral can be seen for miles.

      While the church's windows and 49 bells have been installed, there's still work being done on the interior. The plan is to have a mural of Christ Pantocrator ("the All-Powerful") looking down from the dome. But that's not stopping the services.

      After more than a century, St. Sava is a working cathedral. But it's still a work in progress.

      Abstinence makes the brain better ponder

      Nikola Tesla was an electrical engineering giant, a successful inventor, and a formidable rival of the great Thomas Edison. But beneath the fame, the inventions, and the theories, Tesla was a bit odd. Besides being an egocentric who hated egocentricity in others, Tesla was a germophobe with what he personally described as a "violent aversion to women's earrings." Perhaps that explains why he never married – along with his belief that sex had an adverse effect on his research.
